Life Unexpected

I probably shouldn't be watching anymore TV. But Lola was telling me all about this new show, Life Unexpected. I started to watch it. I think I missed the first 2 or 3 episodes. But I caught up online. I had to get a little creative there. I watched 1 episode on their website. And the others on YouTube. But it's such a cute show! It reminds me a lot of Gilmore Girls. I have to admit it, I was a big fan of that show! I'm just hoping this one sticks around. I'm pretty sure, it would crush me if it got cancelled.

Ash Wednesday

What an important day today is. A time to begin our reflection. To serve our Lord. And to make the world a better place. I look forward to Ash Wednesday, and Lent every year. It's a time of renewal. When I feel most alive. I'm happy to be serving my Lord!

Mardi Gras

Today is Mardi Gras. Time to get our last minute sins out! That sounds really funny. Especially since my hubby and I don't really drink. Neither of us smoke. We don't really do too many "bad things." But we are giving up some thing for Lent. And today, is all about getting as much of those things as possible.

I've got the perfect stash of chocolate, sodas, and my favorite fried foods available. Let's hope that I don't make myself sick. My hubby and I are also planning a fun night out with friends. Nothing wild and crazy. More to just enjoy some good music!

Happy Valentine's Day

I just wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day! I hope your day is filled with lots of love, happiness, and lots of time with your loved ones.

There was once a time when I hated Valentine's Day. I really hated it! But now, I understand that it's more about the people that you love. Not just the "romantic love." Take some time to just love the people in your life. Whether it's romantic love, or love for your family and friends.

And if you're anything like me, you'll enjoy lots of chocolate. Maybe some flowers. And lots of time trying to get smiles from your favorite people!

Happy Valentine's Day!
