Karen Kingsbury

Some of you know who this is. If you do not, let me fill you in! Karen Kingsbury is my favorite author. She can't release books fast enough for me! What I'm most excited about is that they are making a film out of one of her books, "Like Dandelion Dust." This is SO COOL! If you are looking for a wonderful, Christian fictional author, I suggest bee-lining it to your nearest library or bookstore. You will not be sorry!

Also on her site is her journal. If you have a minute I invite you to read her latest entry where she talks about the show "The Moment of Truth." I couldn't have said it better.

It looks like those of us waiting on the edge of our seats for the release of Sunset will have to wait until the fall. I'm excited to read it, but sad at the same time because I will miss reading about the Baxter's!

Tomorrow and Tuesday will be busy days for me. I'm doing a cool thing with some MOPS moms involving freezer meals. Cooking (well, food in general!) is one of my passions and helping people is another and this endeavor combines both. I'm helping a total of 20 moms prep a total of 100 meals over the course of four sessions. Forty are already done and bagged and labeled and in my freezer. Here are some pics of those two meals:

The two above are Sweet and Sour Chicken with Veggies and Rice made with one and a half pounds of chicken tenderloin each and the pic below is Herb Marinated Pork Chops. They got six boneless tenderloin pieces in each!

I shopped for all of it and had a BALL!! I did it for a great price as well!! Five complete meals (seven for some if they choose to divide the two that can be divided) that feed 6-8 for $40! The best part was calling the grocery stores. "You need how many pounds of chicken?!" So between that and working on the house I'll be busy.

I had a blast today with my girlfriend going through kid clothes. I love getting organized and I love seeing my kids' old clothes getting so much use!

Have a good Monday!

Random Fact of the Day: If I have a few extra minutes at night I love getting onto the kids' Webkinz site and playing games for them (and doing all the daily stuff if they didn't go on that day!). Maybe I should get one of my own. Maybe I should start a Webkinz Anonymous because I know I'm not the only one.....

I love Karen Kingsbury and I do the same thing with Grace's webkinz!

Being one of those MOPS moms, I say "thank you, thank you, thank you!" I do not like to grocery shop! And I would be one of the first to sign up for Karen Kinsbury and Webkinz anonymous.

I also want to give you a big "Thank You!" for doing the meals for MOPS. About the Webkinz, Chloe just got 2 more for her birthday so it looks like I'm going to be busy. :-)
