Conversation #29: Summer Fun Song of the Week

So summer is winding down with the start of school upon us, but it is still stinkin’ hot here.  When it gets this hot, I don’t want to do much but sit, move as little as possible, and catch any breeze I can (fan, air conditioning, wind, etc.)

Therefore, I decided we needed a “chill” song this week so I chose “Red Red Wine” by UB40.  I realize this song is a bit older, but I love UB40 and ‘80s music and reggae type songs.  When I here a song like this, it just helps me mellow and cool off.  Who knows why, but I love them!

Here are a couple of “bonus” reggae videos to really help you cool off and go to Jamaica in your mind and drink a pina colada (or maybe a margarita because I’m not a fan of the coconut).

This is Cas Haley from a few seasons ago on America’s Got Talent, and the hubby and I love him.  He is a great reggae artist so enjoy some more chill music (excuse the back story and all).  Anyhow, you should check out some more of him on YouTube.  We have even been able to see his show live, and that was quite the experience but really fun.

Okay, just one more: “Baby I Love Your Way” sung by Big Mountain.  Sorry, I remember listening to this when I was younger when I would hang out with my older sisters.  I love it too!

Don’t worry, I have never and will never smoke pot.  I just love the sound of reggae for some reason, and now I hope you do too!  Hopefully you are now in a more “chill” state of mind :)

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

Conversation #204: My Jesus...

Oh Facebook and social media of all kinds...we have a love hate/relationship.  Lately, these days, I feel it is more hate only because I allow myself to be depressed by things I see.  I recently told someone the other day that I had lost faith in humanity, and then it hit me, that is exactly where I should be.  We are a fallen people in a fallen world, and I should have NO faith in humanity.  Why did that take me 30 years to figure out?

So there has been a lot of political/social stuff swirling around, and division among Christians, and I hate it.  Like I said, I have no faith in humanity and realizing that was a good reminder it should ALL be in the Lord.  Even though there are definitely things going on in this world that reject the truth of the Gospel, Jesus, the thing that scares me the most these days is the phrase I alluded to in the title: "my Jesus wouldn't believe this" or "I can't follow a God that would say that" or "I just don't believe…

Conversation #205: About Me


I have no idea how often I will escape to this place, but since I recently added this ol' blog address to my Instagram Profile, I thought maybe I should dust her off and welcome any new readers.

I have so many thoughts rolling around in my head CONSTANTLY that maybe this would be a good spot again to release them, and keep me from online shopping too much during my lunch break ;)  I hear a faint AMEN from my husband.

Anyway, the title of my blog may lead people to make snap judgments about me or my beliefs, which is unfortunate, but also the society we live in at the moment.  First, it created a sort of catchy blog name, and I liked it.  And, yes, I am a conservative, but that label has sooooo many different meanings depending on what media outlet you last listened to so I thought maybe I would use this post to re-introduce myself to old friends and share a bit about how I have grown in the last few years.

I am Christian, Jesus Follower, Believer, Daughter of the King - w…
