Free Cookies!

Posted under How God Provides, We Like Food! - Sep 29th, 11 - 1 Comment

My dad always calls cookies: “cook-cooks”. He is just cute like that! So, this month, you can trade your “book-books” for “cook-cooks”! The Great American Cookie Company is having a “Reading is Sweet” book drive during the month of October. If you donate a new or gently used book, you will receive a free chocolate […]

Cow Day Fun!

Cow day was even bigger this year. As a self-appointed “cow”ordinator, I helped to corral all the herds at one location to feed. There were six families that participated. We helped to outfit some of the families at my house before the event. There was nail-painting, cow hat-making, and duct-taping also going on, and 29 […]

Happy Birthday, Whataburger…60 years!

What?…wear orange…get free Whataburger! What do you know…we’ll be there!

In “Cow”g-nito: Our Third Annual Cow Day at Chick-fil-A

We were going to be out of town for “National Cow Apreesheashun Day” at Chick-fil-A. Anyone who knows us, knows that we are big fans of Chick-fil-A (See other blogs for more proof). On the second Friday in July, Chick-fil-A gives you a free full meal for dressing like a fool full cow, or a […]

Happy B-day, Dad!

My dad is one of those men who isn’t afraid to try anything, and he isn’t afraid to share new wisdom that he gains along life’s way. I love those qualities about him. Recently, one of my dad’s life experiences¬† involved trying new things (like a roasted jalapeno…pronounced ha-la-pain-yo), and learning new things. (You are […]

Strawberry Picking

Believe it or not, we were wearing jackets when we went strawberry picking last week (April 27)!¬† On a day like this…simple pleasures…who would want to check their cell phone, right? Well, Paige has more to say about our day in her post. What a “berry” nice day it was! We had a lovely time […]

What a deal!

Posted under Traditions, We Like Food! - Nov 10th, 09 - No Comments

A friend sent me an e-mail that I thought I would share with any other Whataburger-loving person out there. It mentioned if you dress up in orange from head to toe you will get a free Whataburger on Nov. 10 from 5-8 p.m. I said, “What?” She called them, and was informed that a UT […]

Give it your all!

Posted under Admit One, LOL, The Unexpected, We Like Food! - Sep 8th, 09 - 2 Comments

“Going all out” and “Giving it your all” are exhausting mottoes I like to live by…sometimes. I was reminded of this recently. I really don’t know how Chick-fil-A stays in business. The Lord must be blessing them for all of the food that they seem to always be giving away. Yesterday, Chick-fil-A was dishing out […]

My Mind is Running With Thoughts on Running!

As I approach my 20th high school reunion (and 38th B-day), I have felt the need to run (fight or flight, huh?) . So for twenty dollars a month (our first time to join a gym—ever), BC and I rundrive over to the gym and get on the treadmill. We only go there together, and […]

I Am a Fan of Chic-fil-A!

What is black and white and red all over? Our embarrassed family walking into Chick-fil-A dressed like cows! Yesterday, we made total cows of ourselves (in more ways than one)! It was National Cow Appreciation Day at Chic-fil-A, and so we dressed the part and had a moo-valous time! We were supposed to dress “head […]
