Found me some JEANS!

I am wearing them right now (with all tags intact, you know, as a trial run). We'll see if they pass the test of time. I am stoked about them at the moment though!  They sit a tad below the waist, which for me is great! They're actually long enough... another plus. And the best part is that I got them at ROSS for $25! (So I saved over $650, not too bad!) I am not a huge fan of Ross... the one nearest to us is pretty extremely ghetto, but I found two pairs of jeans, so I put up with the less-than-desirable ambiance.  I didn't find much else, but who cares, I got jeans! Woo hoo!

Here's a link to them if you wanna check them out!

How much!?

I know that a good pair of jeans can be priceless.... but $685? Are these gold encrusted or something?! That's just NUTS!

I remember back in the "good ole days" a pair of designer jeans were about $25... yep I'm talking about Jordache! Remember these?
I'm currently on the hunt for a great fitting pair of jeans. They have to be stylish and simply cannot cost a hundred bucks!  I need a pair with longer than 1-inch zipper, but not something that looks like "mom jeans". Although, I am a mom ... so technically they'll be mom jeans regardless. I am totally aware that this won't  be easy, but I will find the perfect pair! I'll let you know when I do.

Got any suggestions? What are your favorite jeans?

Someone actually did it!

A couple of weeks ago, I joked about duct taping my son, so I could change his diaper. I never in a million years thought that someone would actually do it! I saw this last night on Inside Edition. Appalling!  This is so sad!  Apparently his 18 year old mom and her 19 year old boyfriend were high and thought this would be funny. Not so much!  (These pictures are of the poor little boy that they taped, NOT MY SON!)  They went on to tape his sippy cup to the wall, just out of his reach. Sad.

Spoiled milk and a sign from God

Yesterday I went to town. I went to get a gallon of milk, we were completely out.

While I was driving home I started praying to God. I was praying about something that has been weighing heavily on my heart and mind lately.  I was asking God whether or not I was doing the right thing. I was asking for a sign (not directly), but that's what I was looking for.

Then all of a sudden right in front of my eyes was the brightest falling star I'd ever seen. My mouth fell open and my lips quivered, I was brought to tears.

I mean I've seen falling stars before, but usually I just catch a glimpse of one out of the corner eye. I'm usually unsure if it was really a falling star or if could have been something else.

This time was different. It was an undeniably bright light, right there in front of me. It lasted a long time too. It was probably like 5 seconds, but it seemed like forever. It seemed to span 100 yards or more.  It went straight down, right in my path.

I was so moved by this falling star, this sign, and just couldn't wait to come inside to share my experience with Mr. Wonderful, which I did. I was so moved that I forgot about the milk I had in my car. The milk that K1 would have loved to have  had for his cereal this morning. The milk that I had gone to town to get.

I remembered the milk... around 10 this morning. Long after K1 and Mr. Wonderful had gone to school/work. It was now hot and spoiled milk.

Oh well, I'll take a sign from God over fresh milk any day!

Have you ever had a sign from God?
