What to watch? I am a stinky, prude. I just can't stomach much. But I like company and noise and I love to have something on. What to watch?

I tried Downton Abby - um, the kiss at the end was a little much for me. Prude. I don't want to watch that.
(*update - my pretty conservative friend said the Abby was way worth watching and the kiss was not the main story line...I will probably watch a season or two when the Mr. takes his next trip...)
A friend totally recommended Super Natural - NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - 4 minutes put min up all night. I totally though it was a Superman sorta show. NO - IT IS NOT... 4 minutes. I am scared for life.

SO tonight I watched Fireproof - What a great message and so great to see my Growing Pains guy again.

Hungry for more? Netflix knows me better than my own mother and recommended this show: The 5th Quarter.... LOVE it. Love the actors and the message and the goodness of it all. So, for all you nerdy prudes, here are two good shows that I was pretty happy to spend time viewing. Post any that you have! (BUT REMEMBER I AM A WIMP!)

This summer I went to see my Mama who was in Oregon for a time (long story) and we partied like it was 1999. One day we went to farmers market and met this amazing woman. She took a minute to share her art journal with my girls. A few things struck me about this amazing lady.

1. Her ART - it speaks to me.
2. Her FAITH in GOD that shows through her lovely art.
3. Her kindness to my children even though we were NOT big spenders (like I wish we could have been) at her booth.....She showed us her lovely art journal and it was amazing.....

Amazing - let's just face it. I don't have other words. She is Amazing.

Karla Dornacher is doing a giveaway and I HOPE I WIN - it will be amazing...

Mommy lift....

I just read this article someone pinned and have to say, it was divine intervention! I have had a day and I totally know something is off in my poor body. The holidays were not my friend as far as eating and sleeping and now I am paying the price for partying. And so is my family....a little. We just had a cranky night when we shouldn't have. This article was such a lift. I am TOTALLY wanting to do the super kid thing. Starting Monday. I may need to make a cape or a hero mask. I am hoping that putting this out there in the blog world will make me follow through with it. Anyway, if you need a lift, go read the article. I am also thinking of tokens. I will have to work on a system for my family but I think the kids would all really love it and it would make me less of the bad guy, more of a rewarder...
