*Time to shop*

I don't know about you but I love a good ole mall. A mall where you walk in and know your feet will be killing you by the end of the day. A mall where you can just smell the bargains. A mall that likes to give you samples. I LOVE the mall.

The only thing I don't love about the mall is how tempting it is to spend your money on frivolous things you don't need. But you feel like you just have to have it because your at the mall and it's SO cute!

I went to the mall this past Saturday and to my dismay there were just to many sales! I JUST had to go to the Disney store where I just happen to find the most adorable pair of Tigger jammies for Jeremy.

I then kept on browsing and I found Disney princess snow globes for only $8.99 I mean really? I do have a sister who wants to decorate her house in Disney when she marries in 14 she collects Disney snow globes. How could I not? If I refused I think I would just had to stamp my forehead "Horrible sister ever!" Okay, maybe I am being a little melodramatic but I just couldn't pass it up!

So now I am going to announce my newest weakness shopping online. I think I may need a twelve step program. I think it happened after I found the greatest deal on my laptop cord. My newest passion you may ask?


You may ask what is a poppy?

This my friend. This is a poppy. Oh, they are so delicious! I can't begin to describe how bad I want to own a poppy. I want two, three oh okay four or five some for all different outfits I own. They are so CUTE! Visit this ever so creative women on her site. They are homemade! Yes my friend homemade!

And on to my next online shopping obsession. Vera Bradley.

Ahhh can the loveliness stop?

Theses bags are adorable.

Take a peek.

Okay, well my shopping post. Needs to end before I go run to a mall!!

My heart is breaking.

A sweet seven year old boy went home to be with the Lord last night. He had CF and I didn't know him but after I read his mommy's blog I feel like I know home.

I am asking you all to pray for this sweet family.

I wrote this poem a few years back for CF moms.

Mother’s Prayer

It was like a dream come true Lord, when I first held my newborn son. Do you remember how I couldn’t stop thanking you for the precious blessing you had given us? I was scared when they told me and my husband that our son had a disease.

But I prayed Lord, you know. I prayed that he would be healed despite what they say.Months turned to a year and every day he has gotten worse. Lord how can this be? He’s my son, my baby son. I know his every move, when he cries and when he laughs. He fills my heart with pleasure and the dreaded truth.

Every moment, every day I pray Lord, I pray. For one mighty touch on his precious heart to make that disease go away. I watch him decay away and my heart cries for this to change. Lord he gets worse every minute of every day. PLEASE MAKE THIS DISEASE GO AWAY!Lord, I am sorry I just can’t accept that this child in my arms will soon draw his last breath. I fall on my knees and other days I praise, but, days like these I rant and rave.

Every moment he lives is a testimony to you. And one day soon I know he will be with you.On days when I can’t get over the truth I think about you. I see the cross and your Son on that tree. Yes, you had to see him leave. Then my heart screams with joy for I know because your Son had to die for our sins and rose again.

I will be able to see my son healthy and whole again.I must admit, I know I will have to be reminded again how much you love me. For when I see my baby in his crib I ask you Lord, why does my son have to die?Written By: Ginger

I'm still here!!

This is just a quicky! To tell you all I haven't left the blogging world but I still don't have my laptop cord so the blogging is kind of difficult to do at the moment.

I was able to see one of my bestest friends tonight. Oh, it was so much fun! We haven't seen each other since we were ten but have kept in touch with phones, letters, and email and of course facebook! ;)

After we saw each other we texted one another for about an hour after we said good bye. :) I am still just so giddy about it! I just had a wonderful time! It was like we were little girls again! Pictures will come soon!! Just as soon as my laptop cord is replaced!

Well, I am going to bed now!

Hello From Big Moe

Hi everyone! My name is Big Moe. You may remember me back when Ginger first started blogging. She would always whine that she wanted a laptop. Never fully appreciated how helpful I was to her.

To think she would use my keyboard, look at my monitor, and kick my tower! I would never complain I just enjoyed her company. But then one horrible day she was given a laptop and what happen to me you may ask?

I sat in the classroom just waiting for the day she would come back. It's like she didn't even care that the dust that fell on me gave me allergies or that the cat sitting on the top of my monitor gave me a head ache. She didn't care that every time I saw her with her... "Lappy" it would bring tears to my eyes. Sniff nope she just instead enjoyed being able to move room to room with Lappy by her side.

HOWEVER, when her laptop let her down guess who she would come crying too?? Just guess??? Yup, you got it... me!!! And I would always be happy to let her start the tower and get me running again.

Well, once again Lappy is under the weather as you can tell from Big Moe's intro. :) I guess I have to break down and buy a fifty dollar cord for my laptop! SOB! I knew it was bound to happen that all that electrical tape holding it together would one day let me down! But that day came sooner than I wanted sniff!!

So, while I wait for my cord (That I need to order first) To come jumping to my door I am back on Big Moe. Of course as much as Big Moe thinks he is so trust worthy. Let me tell ya he's not! He freezes on me and turns off on me it's just not right!

And yes, this is why I haven't blogged since my cord died. It's just very hard to blog on this computer. However, I am not complaining I am glad I have old trusty big Moe he is better than nothing!!

Well, I am going to end for now mainly because I'm afraid it's going to freeze before I can press "publish"

So, faithful bloggie peeps leave a comment tell me how you are doing!!

Blog Later,

I decided to welcome everyone to my blog!

I know some of you are long time readers but I thought I may just have one new reader this evening that needed a big ole hardy "Welcome!"

Once again I have aloud my blog to slipped away from my fingers I tried grabbing it many times but it somehow escaped my grasp. I honestly love blogging. I love getting away so to speak and sit at my desk, the floor, my bed, the couch and just blog.

Just me and my lappy. (laptop)

With, school, friends, family,trips, other responsibilities and of course at the moment a really good novel I can't put down my blog seems to get put on the shelf like every one's favorite childhood book Corduroy. That poor little bear who just wanted to be loved by a human. SNIFF!

I sometimes lay in bed ready to fall asleep and all of the sudden I start thinking how many days ago was my last post?

So then there is nights like tonight where I just want to blog.

What about you may ask?

Nothing and Everything.


My bed room is a mess

I have been reading instead of cleaning

and I painted my toe nails purple.


Jeremy is now 10 months old

Carole is getting married

Aaron is all grown up

Mom and Dad just celebrated 24 years of marriage

My birthday is next month

And in closing...

I am working on a fun post that should be published sometime this week.

Keep your eyes peeled.

My little man

Saturday, June 5, 2010


Last night, I fixed my make up, put on my new dress, brushed my hair, put on my shoes, and put my earrings on I looked in the mirror for the last time took a deep breath took one last sip of Dr.Pepper and walked to the church with one of my students at my side helping me carry some gifts and other things I was lugging to the building.

One of the little graduates were already there with a silk white dress she explained later to me that her grandfather picked out for her. (Which I thought was just adorable) When I went in side I walked down the isle as my dressed swished and swayed I placed the diplomas, the flowers for the mothers and the gifts on the table with a black table cloth. I couldn't help but look at it afterwards and thought I can't believe I'm doing this I can't believe I am now the teacher. I watched my kindergarten teacher and my mom do it for years ALWAYS imagining myself in there place. Little did I know I really would be the teacher one day.

I was so proud of my students. They did such a good job.

I then was touched. When my mentor and friend, and (teacher who trained me) walked up on the stage and announced that she was retiring and I would be taking her place (Which I already knew but it was so touching the way she spoke about me) It was also neat because I felt it was official I am now the kindergarten and first grade teacher! I am so excited about next year!

One little boy came up to me and gave me a bouquet and a gift. I was so touched. He is such a tender hearted little boy, I had him last year for k4 I was so excited when I heard he had gotten saved during Christmas time and last night my mentor talked about that before he went up to get his awards and he sat there next to me listening to her and he started crying! That is how tender hearted he is! My heart MELTED and I almost lost it while I gave him a tissue!

Another moving part of the graduation was when we honored the teacher (my mentor) who was retiring. For the last month I had been going around the school and church having all of her former students signing some cards for her and then I asked a teacher who had her as a kindergarten teacher present the cards and a bouquet of flowers to her.

I also was so proud when I walked down the isle with my graduates last night and was able to smile and get a big smile back from a few of my current and former k4 students who were attending the graduation! I was just so proud to see them there watching me! I love them!

All in all it was great night.

I will blog soon!
