Day 44 of 72 : middle age hair & Ree & a homecoming & kids sayings…


When I look back over pictures of me when I’m middle aged ( besides the one where my eyes are closed or it looks like I’m picking my nose)  I’m not kidding…my family will attest to this.  I don’t know how these pictures happen they just do.  Anyway – back to the post. I’m most likely to find my hair like this…


a ponytail. It’s easy.  Maybe not as flattering but it takes forever to straighten my hair to wear down.  What is your ” go to ” hairstyle?

Close your eyes and pretend I’m Ty Pennington for this to work Ok? ….ready?  Here goes – Guess I only  have one more thing to say….Welcome Home Farmgirl Paints/Strahle FamilyWelcome Home!  That is my FAVORITE part of the gets me everytime.

I’ve re-fallen back in love with Ree…I stopped reading because most all of the food is so… full of guilt!  You know what I mean?  Then I saw these My brother’s Chicken Tacos I might just have to start working out a little harder…I just kid


Am I the only one who has kids that pick up quirky sayings and then use them on me? Here is Grace’s “ new thing ” to say

I just kid…really?

She will say something silly like–you gotta picture it like this….her big blue eyes looking to the skies with her lashes beating quick and hands over chest like in the movies…and she dramatically says to me….” You have so much to learn Mom”! and just as quickly, as the words come out,she grabs me and laughs saying…

I just kid…I just kid

and her laughter fills the room as she gets a kick out of herself.  The child of my old age.  How she lights up my life.

And one more thing…my favorite verse this week.  I have so much to say about these words…but I will leave them to hopfully speak to your heart just especially for you this Sunday.

In you the orphan finds mercy.”….Hosea  14:4 ( the last sentence in verse 4)










Becky @ Farmgirl Pai - awww you are just the sweetest AND cutest thing. thank you for the big welcome home!! now if it could only FEEL like home. i'm so impatient. when will i learn;)

paige - what a cute post tiffini!

i love your ponytail & i am queen of the ponytail.

& here are my reasons:

it's a billion degrees here so it's much cooler.

when it's colder weather, i just prefer the pulled back low ponytail look with a turtleneck.

when we drive around, i love the windows down. hence the easy ponytail.

& finally, my earring show up better with a pony tail!

such a cute welcome home to becky.

cute picture of your sweet girl too!

paige - oh & i LOVE that scripture


Paula - It's so funny that you call yourself middle-aged. When my mom turned 60 she told us that she felt good for being middle aged. We told her that would be great if she was planning on living to be 120 years old!! YOU, my friend, are not middle aged!!!!
