These arms of mine

These arms of mine are burning from wanting you...

Been along time since I've heard this song. This was played on the movie Road House (w/ Patrick Swayze). I heard it again this week on the show "So you think you can dance"

Open Arms-

So now I turn to you with open arms,nothing to hide, believe what I say....
This song was playing at the end of an 80's movie, that at the time considering my age I shouldn't have been watching... This is one of my favorite love songs...

I couldn't embed this video so here's the link.

Please don't go girl

Ok, yes I was a New Kids on the Block fan. We lived in Odessa, and when my mom had an interview here in Dallas, it just happen to fall on the weekend that NKOTB were going to be in concert. So we got to come to the concert and eat at the Hard Rock Cafe. I thought I was so cool going back home with my concert t-shirt and wearning it the following Monday.

Summer Girls

Ok.. stole this idea from Chasing Amy... I'm not going to do 60 days in a row... but thought it would be fun to remember some of the cheesy songs I used to love as a kid...

What would you do?

I was at Sports Authority looking for some running shoes that were on sale. As I'm trying to decided which ones to get I hear this over the loud speaker.

My cue to get the heck out of there.

What's cooler than a lion?

So at home we have teams. Eddie and Emma against Me and Isabel. In the beginning they were butterflies and we were dragonflies (I think). Anyways, they soon became lions. We have yet to find an animal to stick with. On Friday, we chose bumble bee, but then I didn't think that was furioucious enough so I said we were killer bees. Then I heard Isabel saying.. We're gonna kill you, cause we're killer bees. Yeah... probably not the best thing to say. I've got to come up with something better. The lions have their signature roar, and high-five with their paws, and even Emma will try to scratch. So we need suggestions on a team animal.

Speaking of lions...
Saturday, Isabel comes in my room whining that Emma scratched her, and I told her that she needed to be careful around baby lions... fast forward to 15 minutes later, after I got out of my shower Isabel saw my chest where I had been scratching. "Ooooh mama, you got scratched too.. was it a lion?"

New blog

I started one. It's my online journal between me and God. Each morning when I do my devotional I journal about what God is telling me and how I respond. Maybe one of these days I'll share the link with my kids so that they can read about the struggles that I've faced and how God has gotten me through them.

My Grandparents

My grandparents are moving to Mansfield this weekend and I can't wait. They currently live in Odessa which is 5.5 hours away, so we only get to see them twice a year. I moved away from Odessa when I was 15, that was 18 years ago. They will be living 4 minutes away. Yippeeee!!!!! I'm very close to my grandparents. I would stay at there house every weekend. On Saturday mornings, we'd go to McDonalds and then to the mall. On Sunday, we'd go to church and then go eat at Furr's Cafeteria.
It's because of my grandma that I know the Lord today. I remember her playing volleyball with me in the front yard, and sewing dresses for me. I remember always practicing spelling words with my grandpa (I would adminster the test to him). I remember everyday after school, I would make 2 icecream cones for my grandpa for him to eat when he got home from work. (I would catch the bus at there house).
Now they are in there late 60's early 70's and I finally get to see them everyday now. My grandma is the best cook. My grandpa was is an automobile accident 15 years ago, so now he's in a wheelchair. Thank God that workman's comp has provided income for them all these years. They were able to buy their new house in cash and were blessed to sell their exsisting house, to which they have lived in since 1955.
This house was a liquor store, and over the years with countless remodeling, it turned into a beautiful home and remains like that today. I can't believe I'm never going to go to Odessa again. Ok maybe for a funeral or something. Thanksgiving is going to be so cool here at my house and Christmas too... I so excited I can't wait.

August Rush

I saw this movie for the first time last night. It was sooooooo good! It keeps you on the edge of your feet. The music is great, and the story is great. I highly recommend this film.
