This 'n That~

I just realized I have not taken a picture of any of my kids since Christmas/New Years!

I sent Powell back to school last weekend without getting a shot of all my kids together!

I know my family is wondering if there will ever be a post about the kids again since I merged my blogs :)
(YES..I promise!)

Speaking of Powell...he completed his first semester and finished STRONG.  We are so proud of him.  He is excited to have become eligible to be initiated into his fraternity.  

Moving on :)

Have you seen these cute journals at Target???

Seriously cute, from a company called

Maybe I will use one of them to remind me to TAKE MORE PICS OF MY KIDS!!! :)

One of my "goals" for 2012 was to devote more time to my spiritual health.  I watched Beth Moore's Livestream on Prayer, and am very excited to make my prayer life, quiet time, and bible reading fruitful...and a pretty journal is always inspiring.

Do you ever eat Portabello Mushrooms??
We love them here in our house...I just baked them this time (but you can grill them), added caramelized onions, drizzled a little balsamic vinegar, and set on a bed of baby spinach....really delicious!  I also made brown rice with a Black Bean and Orange Salsa...delish!

A yummy vegetarian meal!

So, there you have a little of this and a little of that!


  1. I LOVE portabello mushrooms. When dave cooks burgers for him and the kids, he'll often grill me a mushroom. Cute journals. I have barely touched my camera since Christmas too. Sometimes, I need to step away from it for a while.

    I replied to your very sweet comment on Shelley's blog...when are you and Lucy coming to Texas??! You are welcome anytime!!!!

  2. okay dawn........that should have been a heart, doesn't translate like facebook....... but the sentiment is the same.

  4. Thanks Fanci...I got your ♥!!!

  5. I love those little journals. Great find Dawn!
    Love portabellos! They take on the flavor of whatever you put on them. Your meal looks wonderful and perfect for my vegan diet!

  6. Those journals are seriously cute! I didn't see them at Target but will look again next time! I'm avoiding Target as much as know they have a $100 cover charge. :) xoxoxo

  7. love it all dawn! for some reason I'm not linking up to your blog anymore..even though I'm a follower. hmmm?

  8. Love those Tar-jay sweet notebooks.
    LOVE Beth Moore.
    Considering going to her 6 session LIVE series beginning 1/24. I mean seriously, I have her in the same town, right???
