All I Can Say....

All I Can Say.... Is go here!! It is good!!

Get Laundry Coupons!!

Go here to get some great laundry coupons! They just mail them to you! It is super quick and easy!!

If you wrote a book what would be the title?

Have you ever thought about if you were an author what you you titled your book? My family is always saying that my Aunt Kay should write a book. She is so funny and she says if she ever writes a book it will be called The Adventures of Wilbur and Wanda! I would definitely need two copies of that book.  If my mom was writing it a book it should be called Southern Hospitality with Style.  She is such an excellent decorator and hostess! If I were writing a book right now it would be called SURVIVING! Maybe just surviving or surviving parenthood or I hope my two little ones dont give me a heartattack or I long for a peaceful moment.  Any of you with small children or who have had small children probably know exactly what I am talking about. 

I could never be the author of a book...I can't stay on one subject long enough. If I was writing a story about my hometown it would end up being a travel novel.  Anyway, I guess that is what a blog is for, right?

It has been a long morning!! My little ones have been up to no good. Now don't misunderstand me I love my boys and think they are the best things in this ole world, but man they are work!! I believe their little minds never stopping working. They must dream about getting into trouble and ways to drive mama crazy!! They would send the super nanny to the greenleaf mental institution and still not need a nap. 

For example, while I am writing this very blog I keep seeing their bedroom door open and close. Remind you they are supposed to be napping. When I see the door opening and closing I know the little one is up to something and he is looking to see if I am coming to get onto him.  So I get up and walk in and there only to realize that he has broke his flashlight that has Granny just got him for Christmas.  Then I realize NO he his broken both his and his brothers new flashlights.  I am telling you he can tear about anything. I guess he calls himself taking the batteries out. I guess he was going to switch them.  I am telling you you have to watch him with everything. Last night he was eatting the hungry hungry hippos marables.  I dont think he swallowed any, but his poop (as he calls it) has looked funny today! I guess I will know it in time.

Earlier today I was on the phone with my dad and my oldest son won't stop whinning. Seriously, just whinning about nothing really. He has already received one spanking today due to his bad attitude. So I decided I would lay down with them and help them get a nap. First you have to clean off the bed and then they want you to read a book. They could star in the if you give a mouse a cookie book series.  So while I am reading I keep hearing chugchugchug toot toot, chugchugchug toot toot and everyonce in a while My name is percy! They keep turning on their trains and letting them run under their beds! Then I have to get a bed and pray that little train comes out!! Speaking of Thomas who invented their tracks 3 year olds should be able to put together an aerospace engineer! But that is a comment for another time!! Anyway after I finally got percy quiet and all the lights off I lay down thinking I am in for a peaceful moment.  That is when the two  year jumps up and sticks his hand in my face and says poop poop. Sure enough he had poop all over his hand and was fixin to put it in my face. I start screaming stop stop.  That definitely didnt help the situation. After I finally got him clean he wanted to rub my face. Even though I had cleaned him I was still hoping it was his poopy hand.  Then they both wanted to kiss me.  Getting kissed by the two year old is like getting kissed by a cotton mouthed mocassin.   He will be kissing you so sweet and then all of a sudden .... a hunk of your face is missing or bleeding!
So, I am thinking No Nap today!!!

For All the Parents, Care Givers, and Others Who Work Quietly in the Background!

A dear, sweet friend of mine sent this to me! I needed to read it again tonight! I try to be the best moma I can be but sometimes it gets a little overwhelming...My sweet little one (the one who jumped on the 4-year-old boy- read below) came up to me and said hold me. I got to rock him to sleep!! It was so wonderful! Thank God for my wonderful boys!! I hope you enjoy this poem as much as I have!!

The Invisible Mother.....

>It all began to make sense, the blank stares, the lack of response, the way one of the kids will walk into the room while I'm on the phone and ask to be taken to the store. Inside I'm thinking, 'Can't you see I'm on the phone?'


>Obviously not; no one can see if I'm on the phone, or cooking, or sweeping the floor, or even standing on my head in the corner, because no one can see me at all. I'm invisible. The invisible Mom. Some days I am only a pair of hands, nothing more! ' Can you fix this? Can you tie this? Can you open this??


>Some days I'm not a pair of hands; I'm not even a human being. I'm a clock to ask, 'What time is it?' I'm a satellite guide to answer, 'What number is the Disney Channel?' I'm a car to order, 'Right around 5:30, please.'


>Some days I'm a crystal ball; 'Where's my other sock?, Where's my phone?, What's for dinner?'


>I was certain that these were the hands that once held books and the eyes that studied history, music and literature --but now, they had disappeared into the peanut butter, never to be seen again. She's going, she's going, she's gone!?


>One night, a group of us were having dinner, celebrating the return of a friend from England . She had just gotten back from a fabulous trip, and she was going on and on about the hotel she stayed in. I was sitting there, looking around at the others all put together so well.

>It was hard not to compare and feel sorry for myself. I was feeling pretty pathetic, when she turned to me with a beautifully wrapped package, and said, 'I brought you this.' It was a book on the great cathedrals of Europe .

>I wasn't exactly sure why she'd given it to me until I read her


>'With admiration for the greatness of what you are building when no one sees.'


>In the days ahead I would read--- no, devour- - the book. And I would discover what would become for me, four life-changing truths, after which I could pattern my work: 1) No one can say who built the great cathedrals - we have no record of their names. 2) These builders gave their whole lives for a work they would never see finished. 3) They made great sacrifices and expected no credit. 4) The passion of their building was fueled by their faith that the eyes of God saw everything.


>A story of legend in the book told of a rich man who came to visit the cathedral while it was being built, and he saw a workman carving a tiny bird on the inside of a beam. He was puzzled and asked the man, 'Why are you spending so much time carving that bird into a beam that will be covered by the roof, No one will ever see it ' And the workman replied, 'Because God sees.'


>I closed the book, feeling the missing piece fall into place. It was almost as if I heard God whispering to me, 'I see you. I see the sacrifices you make every day, even when no one around you does.'.


>'No act of kindness you've done, no sequin you've sewn on, no cupcake you've baked, no Cub Scout meeting, no last- minute errand is too small for me to notice and smile over. You are building a great cathedral, but you can't see right now what it will become.'


>I keep the right perspective when I see myself as a great builder. As one of the people who show up at a job that they will never see finished, to work on something that their name will never be on.

>The writer of the book went so far as to say that no cathedrals could ever be built in our lifetime because there are so few people willing to sacrifice to that degree.


>When I really think about it, I don't want my son to tell the friend he's bringing home from college for Thanksgiving, 'My Mom gets up at 4 in the morning and bakes homemade pies, and then she hand- bastes a turkey for 3 hours and presses all the linens for the table.' That would mean I'd built a monument to myself. I just want him to want to come home. And then, if there is anything more to say to his friend, he'd say, 'You're gonna love it there...'


>As mothers, we are building great cathedrals. We cannot be seen if we're doing it right. And one day, it is very possible that the world will marvel, not only at what we have built, but at the beauty that has been added to the world by the sacrifices of invisible mothers.

It doesn't pay to be the bully on the playground!

This is for all your moms out there that are living with adventorous children. 

I have those kind of adventurous children.

Now dont get my wrong I love my boys! Besides the gift of Jesus Christ and each other, they are the best things my husband and I have ever received. They are loving, kind, and adorable. Simply the best things in the world. But they are adventurous....

My husband often doesn't understand the insanity I feel as I stay with my kids 24 hours a day while he goes to work. I wouldn't (and couldn't) change places with him even if that were possible. I have the best job in the world raising my two boys. BUT...they are into everything. So today my husband got a little taste of the experience on the playground! Bless him!!

I was taking my $10 off $20 coupon to Sears and he decided he would wait at the mall playground area with our two boys who are almost 4 and 2.  I almost laughed out loud when he suggested the idea, but I hurried into Sears before he changed his mind.

As soon as I start walking out the door of Sears my husband grabs up the boys shoes and says let's go.  I could tell he was a little stressed, but I thought nothing of it and figured he was just nervous about getting to work.  I even asked him was everything ok.  We quickly went back into Sears to look at something I wanted to show him and about 20 minutes later we were in the truck.  My 4-year-old calmly educates me that my little one had scratched up a 4-year-old on the playground. I was shocked, but my husband was like I was going to tell you later.  JH went on the to give me more husband was trying to tell me what that he was going to tell me later...

Apparent there was an almost 4-year-old boss at the playground and he keep telling my oldest child (and others) he couldn't play on things and getting in his face.  We have worked really hard to get our son to control his temper, so he stayed calmed and tried to stay out of his way, BUT the next time he told my son he couldn't play my little 2-year-old jumped on him and started trying to scratch his face. I guess he wasn't putting up with anyone picking on his brother. My husband said the other little boy was a crying and crying and my little 2 year old looked at him so innocently.  Now I don't agree with my 2-year-old, but I guess the moral of the story is stop trying to be the boss all the time!! HAHA!! Someone will get tired of it...even if it is a 2-year-old.

Get a $25 Disney Gift Card!!

Hey guys,

I am sure by now you all know that I have been using my coupons for a while and how I think they make a huge difference. I wanted to share something that my husband and I are using to go on vacation this year! Yes, we are going a real vacation. YAY!! He has already asked off and I have reserved the vacation package. I am so excited!! For a few years now I have had a disney card. It is just a regular Visa card, but you can earn Disney points off the card. I didn't think too much of it at the time because I figured I would just order my son something from the Disney store and that would be a Christmas present taken care of :) ! However, the points don't expire for a long time and I just had been letting mine save up without really even thinking about it.

In November, we are doing to be able to go to Disney and I paired up my points with a really good deal (free eatting) and we saved a ton on our vacation. I just thought you might be interested in getting this card also. Even if you don't want to go to Disney World, they have Disney cruises, resorts all around the world, including Hawaii, and adventures to soooo many places. I would really like to do their new one to Egypt!!

Anyways....right now if you sign up the first time you use the card you get a $25 gift card. I also want you to know that I get points if you get a card and use it one time. I wanted to be upfront and let you know that yes I also benefit from it, which I am sure you figured. So if you are interested please do use my cardmember Id when applying. I would really appreciate it!

You can apply today by calling 1-800-943-8319 or visit and Enter Code CZSL along with my code 13930493.

Organizing Tip # 25 - You can't do it all by yourself?

Take a few minutes today and talk with your kids about putting up their toys or picking up their laundry. Remember you may have to keep reminding them or "encouraging" them, but this will be a habit!! Once they learn to keep this habit it will take a lot of pressure off you!! The earlier you start training your child the BETTER!! haha!!!

I actually heard that kids performance in school and how they are organized at home are related! This makes sense if you think about it!!

Organizing Tip # 24 - Where did ALL the old magazines come from?

Okay...Where did all these old magazines I own come from and more importantly, WHY are they still here? Take time to go through your old magazines and toss out old copies!! (or give them away) If you are keeping a magazine  because there is a recipe in there you like or an article you need...for goodness sakes just take out that article or recipe and throw the rest away!!

Pray for Brody Johnson!!

I want to take a moment to ask each of you to pray for Brody Johnson! Brody experienced a near drowning. His little body is going through a lot right now. Please pray for Brody and his family!! Currently, Brody is in China getting medical attention. He is from north GA! Please check out Brody's site. Just click here!!

Where Have I Been? if you are a regular follower you probably are wondering where have I been? Well, as most of you know, due to the fact that you are constantly late to work or the fact that it takes 15 minutes now to get through town it is planting season here in south GA! It is definitely in full bloom!! I can't believe all the tractors I have gotten behind this week!! I just laughed to myself because it seemed I was trying to run them over just to get to my tractor! Isn't that what you call ironic?

Anyway...I don't know who has lost more of his/her husband or me... He has decided to let me plant cotton for him this season! I tell you if it hasn't been one thing it has been another! Flat tires, missing parts, messed up hoppers...but somehow it gets done right...Praise the Good Lord!!

I am loving seeing the cotton start to "pop" up!!

Organizing Tip # 23 - Go through old photos

Take the time this summer to go through old photos! You will love the it is a good time to take out the doubles (if you had these made) and give them to friends and family members!! I recently was looking through some pictures only to realize that I hadn't even given away some photos I purchased for others... Crazy me!!

Organizing Tip #22 - My Closet

Okay, so I am finally finished cleaning out my closet. Boy, you know you are in trouble when you still have shoeboxes for shoes that you have already thrown away! However, as part of my organizing task, I threw out the boxes. I also found a few clothes that I didn't wear anymore and I got those out of my closet!

Here is what my closet looked like before I started cleaning it out!!  I can't believe I am showing you guys this picture!

Here is my after picture! Sorry this isn't the best picture!

My first task was storing all of the winter clothes and blankets (I love blankets)! I bought the two most beautiful hampers at Ross.  They are a weaved style with fabric lids. I have one in my room and one in my kitchen area. (I know this sounds wierd, but it really blends well!) You would never guess they are full with winter clothing!

I also arranged my clothes by type and color!

Next, I went through my jewerly. I do have a jewerly box, but recently I purchased a jewerly organizer at Steinmart! Isn't this the cutest thing? I think it makes my closet look cute and it is so useful! I can actually see my jewerly, scarves, and sunglasses! I can see my opinions and pick out something quickly!! I still keep my "better" jewerly in my jewerly box.

My new laundry hamper came form Ross! (I told you I am loving this store!! My local store gets items in each day!! Isn't this great??) My hamper matches perfect. It is black with a black and white pokadot interior! It was only $7.99!! I thought this was an awesome buy!!

The shoe/purse holder came from Target!! I didn't get this on a great sale, but the colors matched so well I just couldn't resist!! (I think I saved like a $1.49 haha)  This shoe holder is terrific because it is extremely long! This means I can easily fit one or more pair of shoes in each compartment.

The only thing I regret with my closet is that I didn't purchase more of these hangers. I can hang up to 4 pairs of pants on each hanger! I really liked the way this looked!! It just looks organized!!

I finished up by placing my shopping basket on top of my shelf. (That way I can grab it as I head out the door.) I also put my decor boxes in an organized fashion.  Each box has different items in them.  Like one has ties, one has my larger fashion accesories, etc.  I also added in some picture frames .... and that is my closet!! There are still a few more things I want to do...but there is only so much time! When I do more I will let you know!! Any suggestions...

I would love to see some before and after pictures of your closet!! Feel free to send them to me at!! I might just post them!!

Also, please leave me a comment letting me know if you are enjoying the organizing part of this website. I really want to inspire and encourage my readers! I want to give you guys the information you let me know what you want!!
