What You Crave...

On a sad note...back in December 08 my Uncle was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. Him and his family have been going through a very difficult time! The doctors give him maybe a month to live so my mother and I flew up to St. Louis to say our goodbyes and also visit w/ my Grandparents who love there! Now I love to fly but, this trip was not a good experience! On the way up we had to fly through a thunderstorm...major turbulence! People were closing their window shades and praying! Flight back wasn't so great either. While staying at the hospital for three days it was nice every once in awhile to get out and drive around the city. St. Louis is one of the oldest cities I've ever seen! Just wish I had a bride with me...could have turned out some awesome pictures with those locations!

On a good note....while driving around the city I came across something that made me super excited! I even did my mouse! (close and old friends will know what that is!) I found the best possible thing I could of ever dreamed of...A White Castle!

I was so excited! I haven't had White Castle since I was 10! GA only has Krystals which I just can't's nothing like the real thing! So after going through the drive-thru and getting my number 1 value meal...4 white castles w/ onions and ketchup (got to love that they use ketchup and not mustard) and get this...a SWEET TEA! The only place in St. Louis that had Sweet Tea! Up there if you ask for tea you get hot tea! No thanks! I love a place that can mix a little of the north and the south! Perfect!!! Have to say this was the highlight of my trip to MO!

My Sweet Tea!

1 of 4 White Castle Burgers!

On the way back to the hospital I stuck my camera out the window and took a picture of gorgeous sky!
p.s. Spellcheck found 5 misspelled words...rough day!

My husband is a tourney softball player and at times this consumes our lives! Last year he played 5 days a week and this year we are down to 2 days and every other Saturday! Since my husband now has all this free time on his hands you bet I'm going to take advantage of it - home repairs and family time!


* My husband! He has been working for me this week non stop!

* The new holly tree in the front yard! I've been asking for this for over a year.

* The Shrine Circus...had a great family day and the fair and the circus; plus I got to have a funnel cake!

* The half bath wallpaper and Rick the Puerto Rican! A friend of ours use to hang wallpaper and he came over this week and put it up for us. He also fixed the piece that my lovely 2 year old tore off!

* My new front door! We have been saying since the day we moved in that we would replace the front door....that day has come!

* Tim Grandstaff and Brian Bloye; these two are preaching @ West Ridge and have been doing a wonderful job with the Love Series this month! This series has really got me soul checking and trying to make a few changes in my life!

* Weight Watchers...I have been on it for 2.5 weeks and I've lost 13 pounds so into a pair of my skinny pants this morning for church!


* Well I have to say our home repair speed bumps...Aaron pulling off a chunk of our new wallpaper and the new door being to short (had to replace the whole door frame!)

* Sweets that are over 2 weight watcher you know how bad I would love to have a Kit Kat right now

* The weather channel...they say it's going to rain for the entire week! We all know how true the weather channel is so maybe the so called rain might end up on next weeks Kiss list!

I'm guessing it's a good thing that my Kiss list is twice the size of my Diss list! God and life is good!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
