My Saturday

This has been a long week for me, and I am glad that it is now Saturday, and I can take a breath.

It's actually snowing here right now (in Mississippi!), and I am making my weekly grocery list.  It really is too cold to get out and buy groceries, but I am....Jimmy ran 22 miles early, early (5:30) this morning with friends, so if they can run in the snow for hours, surely I can ride in my warm van to Kroger!

Jimmy took me out for a coffee date twice this week--after supper, just the two of us, and that was just what I needed.

We have our family Bible study tonight at our dear friends' house, the Princes.  We enjoy a meal together after our study, and I am planning on taking a salad and my yummy pound cake.

I have completed 60 out of 63 days of Insanity.  Just three more days to go!  I am ready to say that I am an Insanity graduate.  Like most things in life, this exercise program seemed so intimidating at first.  But now that I am almost at the end, looking back it seems like it wasn't so bad.

I haven't gotten my children or husband any Valentine's Day happy yet.  I need a creative idea that doesn't involve candy.  I guess I will scour Pinterest for some fun ideas!

Sam's 100th day of Kindergarten is coming up soon, and I would like some new ideas for celebrating that too.  If you have any good ideas for 100 day celebrations or Valentines, please share!


  1. Hey Roan!

    I made something with my kids last year for Valentine's that they loved. Didn't cost much to make, either. Don't let the name run you could definately make them without candy.

    Here's my link:

    In fact I filled the kids with several things other than candy last year, like nail polish, matchbox cars, etc. This year I'm thinking of putting coupons in them-like a date with Mommy, a date with Daddy...

    A cute idea for the 100th day of school from some friends in Georgia...dress up like a 100 year old person.

    Hope you all are well

  2. I just heard of someone a bit older than Kindergarten writing 100 facts about themselves. sounds a bit challenging, but maybe the rest of the family could secretly note 100 facts about Sam and share it with him on 100's day??
