Fishin' Friday!

This morning, we have a little time off from work because we are welcoming Trout Fishing in America to our theater tonight.  If you aren't familiar with this group and you have kids....then let's have a little lesson...

Have you ever heard Trout Fishing in America?  Do you have kids?  Do you kind of want something else to play in the car while you drive around....well, they are perfect.  Enjoyable for mom and dad with kids etc. Not only that, but they lead these super cool workshops where kids actually write a song and then they perform them....uh awesome. Check out the links below...and enjoy... 

PLUS!  They are headed to a venue near you in  Houston, Arkansas, and Colorado....






Enjoy,

I'll drink to that!

I think it is about time! Ha! For both or the racks in our lives...

Here it is ladies, a bra and glass of wine!  Here is the article below...

There’s now a perfect gift for the girl who has everything -- including a desire to secretly drink while simultaneously getting a breast lift, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.


The Wine Rack, a sports bra with a plastic “bladder” that can hold an entire bottle of wine, is featured at the BaronBob.com website. “You won’t find this at Victoria’s Secret,” Paul Krasulja of BaronBob boasted to the paper.

“I don’t consider it fine looking lingerie. But it is a good looking piece.”

He won’t get many arguments about the good looking part. Basically the $29.95 device is a black sports bra with a polyurethane bladder inside and a drinking tube long enough to sip from. Add liquid, and the website promises you will “turn an A cup into double D’s.”
And where, exactly, would you want to sport this piece of equipment? The website suggests filling it with wine or cocktails and wearing it to “movies, concerts, ball games, even PTA meetings.”

 
Really?  What will they think of next?

Love is all you need...Show Us How you Live!

Kelly's Korner - Show Us You favorite Bible verse...

Love is not all you need, but it is true in my life, as it was true in Paul's letter to the Corinthians of Greece, that it does add a lot of meaning to an otherwise shallow existence.  Love above all else is important, and if you let love truly guide your life, you will seldom if ever be led off course. 

When Paul wrote this letter the Christian church was still in it's very early beginning stages of existence.  This letter was one of many trying to define what would be a Christian.  Those times were difficult because early Christians did not have years of history to look back on for guidance.  There was no manual on how to be a Christian, and let's be honest - there still isn't a manual.  They were living what would become the history for us as modern Christians.  We look at these letters and the Bible to guide our actions and lives as Christians. It is the closest thing we have to a manual.

That is why this verse has become more real for me in the last few years, because I have defined myself and my character as woman.  I have grown up for all intents and purposes.  I think like an adult not so much as a child.  Alot has changed since those days as a child sitting in Sunday school studying the Bible.

So, it speaks to me more now than ever...

1 Corinthians 13


Love


1If I speak in the tongues[a] of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames,[b] but have not love, I gain nothing.


4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

 8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Before and After Party - PANTRY DOOR!

So, I have yet to post my whole kitchen re-do because I wanted to reach 50 followers before the big reveal.  I am realizing that may be alot harder to do than I originally thought because this follower thing is more of a relaxed kind of thing...and let's face it, I can't resist a Party - sponosred by Thrify Decor Chick.

This, I couldn't resist sharing with you now.  Consider it a little tease...

The pantry door before...notice that this is a picture from when we bought the house.  We knew the kitchen was going to need some TLC. Plus I hate gold door knobs. Not really hate, but I hate gold door knobs when the rest of the door knobs in the house are a completely different color. I guess I am OCD (Obsessed with Coordinating Doorknobs) that way.


When re-doing the kitchen, I had researched some other cool Pantry doors. I found this website of pictures...and I couldn't help myself...I was in love.


Here are the reasons I loved it:
1.  It was antique with a crystal door knob.
2.  It was black and white.
3.  It was chalkboard.
4.  It was surrounded by gorgeous Butler's Pantry dishes. Come to mama...please! (not that I would ever put baby in the pantry)

My husband and I had lots to decide. First, we wanted to buy a new door with molding, but our pantry was an odd size (thank you, 1982).  So, to cut cost we tried an experiment...how about putting molding on our current door?

So, after sanding, priming, and several layers of magnetic paint....then several layers of chalkboard paint....we attached the molding.

Now, I went a little crazy in the molding aisle at Lowes. The frames weren't enough, I had to have little corner pieces etc. This caused a moment of total, "ewww. I went too far."  Followed by the next moment when I realized my hubby had used a nail gun and wood glue to attach it all.  Followed by, "it looks great!" :)

Here it is all done! We love it!

We added an oil rubbed bronze door knob.

Those weird things are doggie magnets all over the lower portion.

And no, I won't open that door for you to see beyond...There are some lines a woman can not cross...consider it a Pantry Line.
