I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.

almost wordless wednesday :: week in review

Wynter had a “groovy weather” program … they sang songs from the 60’s & 70’s, and even changed a few lyrics.

Wynter’s on the stage and in the upper right hand corner.

This one isn’t weather related, but it was their last song and one of the reasons I love, love, love their school!

Hunter had kindergarten graduation

She’s the girl that “mouths” everyone’s part during the program and takes her own part very. very. seriously!

Walking across the stage to receive her diploma …

This is an awesome parody on the Grease song, “Summer Nights.” Definitely worth a listen. Hunter is hidden behind two other girls … if you locate the greenery, she’s almost directly under that.

And Taylor had her first show of the season. It was schooling show, which means it was very casual and a show to give horse and rider some experience in the ring together. I love seeing her riding again!

really not a wordless wednesday :: my bag

The things I find in my bag never cease to amaze me! I’m usually a keep-it-clean-and-simple purse carrier, but sometimes it gets out of control. It’s like mom’s purse is everything from the trash can to the jewelry box. So … in the process of cleaning it out the other day, I snapped a photo to share with y’all!

Items you can always find in my bag:
~ water bottle
~ wallet
~ reading glasses
~ chap stick
~ flossbox {pretty sure you need one too!}
~ pen/highlighter

Random items that sometimes border on crazy:
~ kleenex
~ checkbook {from the pleated poppy}
~ loose $$
~ ice breakers {although the one pictured is actually empty}
~ ibuprofen
~ a gnc gold card {for future purchases to send to my nephew serving in Afghanistan}
~ left over claim tag to collect my children at church
~ empty starbucks straw wrapper
~ empty gum wrapper
~ babygirl’s lip gloss
~ babygirl’s purple necklace
~ babygirl’s sunglasses
~ babygirl’s tiara
~ babygirl’s blue hair extension

I’m thinking babygirl needs her own purse!?

How ’bout you? What’s the craziest thing you’ve found in your bag?
