Last Huddle of the year


Last Sunday, my Huddle - our small group of 10th grade girls that meets on Sunday morning - went out to lunch as our last huddle meeting of the year. We went to Lonnie Tant's Italia Pizza Cafe in Olive Branch. One of the girls' parents own the place. We ate a huge pizza and went around and told our "pow-wow"s of the school year. They all have great hearts and are seeking after God. I love them all! Thanks for a great year, girls!

The best blog ever

There is no possible way I can top my last post. I have actually been delaying to see how long I could let the last post go and the comments keep on coming. The comments have ceased, so I decided it was time to address my readers.

I just want to say that this post has so far surpassed my expectations! I had no idea so many of you would relate or disagree with my plastic cups issues. I hit a nerve with some of you, and I thank you for sharing this with the world.

Stay tuned for (hopefully) more of these stimulating and world changing posts.
Your dutiful blogger,
Brooke

Plastic cups phenomenon


What is the deal with guys and plastic cups? My husband only wants to drink out of old plastic cups that he obtained at various sports stadiums. Even if he is not a fan of said team, he still wants to bring home as many of them as possible to fill up the shelves of my kitchen cabinets. I on the other hand would prefer to drink out of one of the normal sized glasses that one of our loved ones purchased for us off our wedding registry. Chalk another one up to the Mars/Venus analogy.

Life in the military

Have I mentioned all the discounts you get with the military ID? Just in case anyone's wondering, there are tons! I just whip out the ID at, say, Quizno's and BAM! that's 10% off. 55 cents in my pocket. In addition to many fast food restaurants that offer a discount, you also get a discount at places like Blockbuster and Apple computers, Jiffy Lube and Bath and Body Works. I'm brand new to this military thing so this is fascinating to me. This weekend is Josh's first "drill weekend" - which just means he goes over to the base and does something? for Saturday and Sunday. He will also find out what kind of unit he is assigned to. I am hoping its one that would never be needed in Iraq, selfishly. :) Of course you never know, and he did sign up to be a Reservist.

As for me I am gearing up for the busiest time of year, the summer. Just this weekend I have a full Saturday and Sunday of youth activities. And more to come...I did get to see my grandmother this weekend and it was so good to see her. Can you believe she is almost 85? I hope I inherit some of her good genes.
