So after practically freezing to death on Sunday - I could not get warm for the life of me even with flannel pajamas, fuzzy socks, and a goosedown comforter - I thought this might be my seasonal verse:
1 When King David was old and well advanced in years, he could not keep warm even when they put covers over him.
But yesterday, Beth posted an amazing word on her blog http://livingproofministries.blogspot.com/ titled "Just Dreaming?"
She concluded with this verse...I think I'll claim it as my seasonal verse and just go buy an electric blanket!
Habakkuk 2:3 This vision is for a future time.
It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently,
for it will surely take place.
It will not be delayed.

Ha! Nothing could really be farther from the truth. In fact, if it wasn't for Grace, I'd be out in public wearing a Christopher & Banks sweater vest with kittens embroidered on it. Frumpy R Us might be my motto.
However, when I saw this dress on the Academy Awards last night I was stunned! Absolutely FABULOUS. If I ever had a reason to attend the Oscars, I would want a dress just like this. I think that's pretty good taste for a frumpy seamstress!
My pick for best dressed:

I am so stinkin' excited! Going to the concert is Max and Blue-Eyed Girl's birthday present since they both celebrate in February. It will be Blue-Eyed Girl's first "real" concert. (Not counting county fair concerts.)
My first concert was a gift for my 11th birthday - my mom and I went to see John Denver. The opening act was the Starland Vocal Band. No offense Mom, but I'm really glad my kids won't have to wonder what's "Afternoon Delight"???
I am filled with gratefulness beyond measure that Christian Music is where it is today - that my kids and I can rock out to Jesus songs. Music with a message, music with hope. Everyday in our house, in the car, on our ipods we can fill our minds with truth and faith.
Here a little sampling of what we'll be hearing tonight:
Rock On Jesus Freaks!!
PS: Buford's not going. He didn't think he could quite get his "freak on" to Toby Mac. He's more the "Old Rugged Cross" or "Free Bird" type. Nor does he want to deal with post-concert headache and deafness. We will miss you honey - make sure you talk loud the next couple of days unless you want to hear, "Huh?" even more than you already do!

Q: I spent my 21st birthday in Weed, CA at a cattle show. How do you plan to spend yours? (Keeping in mind, of course, that you are a collegiate athlete and have numerous nieces and nephews who look up to you.)
Q: If you could have any food on your birthday, what would it be?
Q: If you could go anywhere on Feb. 9 (no limits) , where would you go?
Q: What has been the best thing about college at UNK so far?
Q: What has been the worst thing?
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Q: What is your dream birthday gift?
Now some important biblical advice for the 21 year old from her big sister:
Happy Birthday Baby Foo-Fa-Nu! I Love Ya!
My mother was not with me in the labor/delivery room that day. She was at home with a bunch of 6 year olds celebrating this little stinker's birthday:
Max had decided to come 11 days early and was born on my little sister Jo's birthday. Today they turn 15 and 21...practically grown-ups. Max will be getting his learner's permit tomorrow and Jo is now legal to buy tequila. Let's all take a moment to pray, shall we!
All kidding aside, these are two of my most favorite people in the world. I was happy to forego having any athleticism in my DNA so that Jo could receive it all. And Max, you are my hero in so many ways and you seriously crack me up. I wouldn't trade being your madre for all the Starbucks in the world.
Happy Birthday BB Jo and Cowboy Max! I love both of you February 9th babies to pieces!

1. Are old, but in denial about the true state of your agedness,
2. Are out of shape, but deluded into thinking you are in shape because you can do 20 minutes of Winsor pilates without breaking a sweat,
3. Are in a state of euphoria because the team you were rooting for just beat a cocky, undefeated team in the Super Bowl,
4. Have a lot of work to do the next day that might involve lifting, bending, vacuuming and scrubbing,
Do a whole bunch of sit-ups to show off to your daughter and husband.

I was feeling a bit down because we hadn't made plans to watch it with anyone. But now I am glad that I got to see every little delicious bit without having to refill the snack tray or make pleasant conversation. I'm sorry, I'm just serious about good football. And that my folks was some good football. When Eli escaped the sack and threw to David Tyree - all I could say was "That Was Awesome!" A play for the history books.
So kudos to you Giants for a great game - had my heart pounding and I even screamed a few times. Football just how I like it!
Now Buford and I will go into deep depression until hints of pre-season begin in August. Go Vols! and that team from Denver - who are they again?...some kind of horse I think.
