Go here to Downy's Facebook page and go QUICKLY!!! They are giving away 500,000 samples of the new Downy Unstoppable. I just got mine! YEA. A lot of times when they send you your sample, they also have high-dollar coupons with it as well.

Just got a full size bag of Tide Stain Release In-Wash Booster in the mail the other day! Also received a $2.00 off coupon that came with it. Will probably be good to stack with a Target Coupon someday soon!

Diary of a Fat Girl, Update #1

Well, I've been ZUMBA-ING for 6 weeks now! I can honestly say this is probably the BEST excercise routine that I have actually WANTED to stick too! I really enjoy working out atleast 3 days a week, and do try to get atleast 4 days in if I can!! Yea Me!!! LOL!

I figured that I would "measure" in (of course, instead of "weigh"-in!) every month. I did do a little cheat on week #2 and measured my arms, just to see if this Zumba thing was actually working....and it was!) The first months results, if I do say so myself, were AH-MAZING! Drum roll please.....

A total of 6 1/2" inches ;)

Might not sound like much, and I do have a long way to go, but it's a great start!

Not quite sure when I'll actually take the plunge and have the courage to "weigh"-in, but maybe on week #8! :)

Please share any success stories you have, I'd love to hear them!

Fingerprint Friday........

This is something Beki, over at The Rusted Chain has been doing every Friday, and I hope to help carry on the tradition!

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:
I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them?

Kids, Milk glass hobnail vases, vintage glass milk jug, and yes, a bright and sunny yellow tablecloth.

HHHmmmm, why do these things remind me of God? God has entrusted to me the upbringing and care of these AWESOME children! I'm FAAAARRRRR from being a perfect parent, but hopefully, when they get older, they'll understand that I did my best to make sure they had a close and personal relationship with their Savior!

Ok, I know, what in the world do the other things have to do with Fingerprint Friday? I guess it's just the beautiful simplicity of things from yester-year. God delights in the simple things, so why shouldn't we? And, who can't look at a cheerful yellow tablecloth and just smile? It makes me think of God's warm, tender arms stretching out to His children. We are so lucky to have a God of LOVE!!!

Stupid virus

So sorry I haven't been on here lately. My computer decided to get a virus about 2 weeks ago, and I've spent most of my time trying to retrieve pictures, applique/font files the hard way and it's taken up most of my time.....I guess that's why it's so important to back up your files every so often!

Now with a new computer, I'm hopefully going to get the ball rolling again!

Hope you all have been enjoying the summer so far. Here in the South it's been extremely HOT and HUMID! Just got our first drenching rain on Wednesday, first in over a month. Hopefully the long drought it about over!

I will be sponsoring another giveaway starting next week. (Also need to get back intouch with my others winners too, since I lost all of that info as well!)

Have a very Happy Father's Day and remember all the things our "Dad's" do for us!
