cover story

Fine, indeed.  In this case - it's encouraged to judge a book by it's cover.  Penguin hardbacks make classic literature oh-so-cool with their collection of newly designed, modern covers - putting a pretty face on timeless tales, like Great Expectations, Sense and Sensibility and A Tale of Two Cities.  Displayed on the living room console table or your daughter's book shelf, you'll have everyone thinking you traded in your (slightly alarming) Housewives' addiction for some light literature.  Smarty pants.

someone fix me a chicken dinner...

'cause I'm a winner!  Thanks to Real Posh Mom for sending me On Becoming Toddler Wise - I can't wait to read it. Visit her blog to find great recipes, daily deals and "in-the-know" info on Dallas. Enjoy!

fabulous fifty

Have you read the premiere issue of House of Fifty yet?  Mix a little bit of Lonny with equal parts High Gloss - oh, and throw in some overtones of inspiration - and you've got House of Fifty.  It's destined to become a part of your "must-read" online magazine collection.
Make sure to check out Kayce Hughes on page 40.  A full-time fashion designer and mother of seven, Hughes dishes on the ever-so-elusive balancing act of the working mom. And if her story doesn't inspire you - then you must have skipped over the part about vintage fabric shopping with her daughters - including her oldest who now has followed in her mother's entrepreneurial footsteps.  Enjoy!

splendor in the grass

this photo makes me happy.  it also encourages me to continue working on a spirit of gratitude.  it's so easy to focus on the negative and lose contentment. someone else's grass will always be greener, bigger, prettier more together, less of a mess, more disciplined, less lazy, wealthier, in better shape - i'll stop here because this list is long.  but when i see this photo of my son and husband, i'm reminded that God has placed some amazingly green grass in my very own yard.  today i choose to be thankful for what he's given me...his word, a healthy child, a husband who cleans the house, a healthy marriage strengthened (not shattered) by hard times, a soft bed, loving parents, siblings and in-laws...and the most amazing friends a girl could pray for.  oh and four days in destin with a few of them - starting tomorrow.
