Faith's Funny Friday

Yes, it is Friday once again and we are all counting down the hours until the weekend!While I was getting ready this morning this blog came to mind, I had to re-read it and got a good laugh! Here I am again sharing it with you...maybe your Friday afternoon will fly by:) Happy Laughs, Dearies!! The Whistling Diva *****DISCLAIMER: This is a girl’s ONLY post. I would suggest that if you are NOT a female you NOT read this post; you MAY be scarred for LIFE, boys!!!*****
*DIVA CUP*
I am writing this blog because honestly it’s a funny story but should probably be told over a few cosmos however I am considering this as a “how to” or “educational” blog for fellow women.

I had a friend tell me about the diva cup.(You can click the link above and read up on it.) She raved about how easy it is to use and how much money in the long run she was going to save by purchasing one. Intrigued by this, “green” invention I researched the diva cup. After a few weeks of research and pondering and ok I will confe…

Until Next Time Dearies!

The Moon

I was cleaning up my computer files tonight because apparently my body thinks I do not require a decent amount of sleep anymore. What I found was a bunch of old writings that I had forgotten about. One in particular is an essay that I wrote at the end of this last semester of school. What is funny is that I asked my friend, who usually reads anything I write before I turn it in for a grade, about posting she did not remember this one. She encouraged me to post it because “you never know who you might help.”

Below you will find the poem the essay is about and then the essay …maybe its for you…maybe its for me…either way here goes:


Driving Home After Marriage Counseling I noticed the moon, one of those eccentric ones, fat yellow, superfluous in the just dark sky, the kinds they call “harvest” or “lover’s”, the kind no one would want to walk on
You must have been negotiating carefully the curves on the long farm road that took us home, I don’t remember. What I remember is the quiet ride …

Today I am linking up with Jamie for What I'm Loving Wednesday!
I am new to think link up parties but I think they are a fabulous idea and hope you enjoy them as well, dearies!!
So, here's to what I'm Loving Wednesday: I'm Loving that I have officially finalized my fall semester schedule and while I am a littler nervous about the grueling 18 hours my inner nerd can not wait to start studying! Plus there's always the nostalgic joy of new school supplies! Goodbye, social life!

I'm Loving that my dear friend Lori is having twins!!! And even more than that she just found out that its a boy and girl!!!!! I am absolutely thrilled for her and her hubs!! They are going to be great parents and I can not wait to be Nanny FeFe to those precious angels!!!

Coloring His Masterpiece

Image
Some of you may have noticed that I have been blogging more lately or maybe I am the only one that gets on this thing! Regardless, I have had a couple of requests for a post that I posted a few years back and ironically enough this particular post had been on my heart as of late. Below you will find said post with a new additon.


Coloring Is Cheaper Than Therapy:

Late Saturday night, while on a random trip to Walgreens I picked up a 16 pack of Crayola crayons and coloring book. Oddly, I found myself laughing at my excitement of my purchase. Sunday, I sat on my bed with Season 2 of Grey's Anatomy playing and I grabbed my favorite childhood past time. I sat and carefully picked my first bland and dead picture to bring to life. If you know me at all, you will know that of course it was one with flowers and butterflies. I thoughtfully selected the colors of my choice from new box of crayons. I colored, careful not to get out of the lines and of course outlining each detail in a darker s…

Twenty Six and a Half

26 and a Half

Yesterday I turned 26 and a ½. Yes, I do celebrate my 1/2 birthday and I enjoy every second. There’s not a party however how much fun would THAT be!?!? Everyone has a surprise birthday party…but a surprise ½ birthday party!?!? THAT would be a riot of fun! Maybe you think I am crazy but why not celebrate your ½ birthday? It’s not about getting older or maybe it is. Maybe it is about gaining another six months of life. You are alive and you have breath in your lungs…celebrate!

I absolutely love birthdays well, really I love most holidays but I have this obsession with birthdays and celebrating YOU! My birthday is January 16; 20 days from Christmas and usually its celebrated by the nation in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In school I always had a three day weekend the week of my birthday so I mean really how could I NOT love my birthday?? So why the ½? Well…. Why not the ½?

Why not  celebrate yourself more often than your birthday? And I am not talking about thi…

Adventure on a Budget

Image
SO its Friday night and I just realized I have spent most of the evening on the interwebs with my facebook up….and now people KNOW I don’t have a life, however, it was productive time, right? ;)

Tonight’s blog is dedicated to one of the cheapest lunches, ever! In this time of economic crisis and super crazy couponin' shoppers, my friend Erika and I have found different ways to save. This lunch however was very much a random stop for us on a day business trip to Lafayette.
We were starving and on a whim turned into a place called Chris’ PoBoys:


We decided to look at the menu and if we couldn’t afford it (because yes we are both on a strict budget) that we would walk out with our heads held high. You could say that we really have no shame! We find a place to sit in the back so we can take in the entire restaurant and take in the menu. Looks good to me!


We order water and both individually decide on the Chris’ Special however, thanks to the sweet waitress we ordered a whole and sa…

Simple Things

Image
Today I am linking up with Jesslyn Amber and bringing you some Simple Things that I am loving this week!
***a sweet two year old screaming in delight that FeFe had arrived*** ***the sound of thunder waking me at 4 am *** ***Eating lunch with a dear friend both of us for less than 14 dollars*** ***drinking Dr. Pepper from an old school glass bottle*** ***Children's laughter as they belly flop in the pool*** ***Completely getting lost in a book*** ***Singing to the top of my lungs in my car*** ***Taking my picture.....and seeing a pretty smile***

What else do I need???

So I have been laying low.…laying low in giving details and true feelings that I am having to work out ..…Yes there is this inner white trash girl that wants to blast and wants everyone to know all the bad….but then there’s this other Faith…the Faith that sometimes I myself do not understand…THAT girl can only be attributed to God….because THAT girl has a lot more class than my inner white trash gossipin fool named Sha nay nay….I know I was surprised by the name too! But this God driven …merciful Faith….is ALL God...and I want that to be made clear!!! I sit here in a turmoil because of what a walking contradiction I can be at times. I know I have touched on this before when I referenced the Proverbs 31 woman that wants to thrive versus the Anti-Men feminist that wants to thrive..…I’m still working on a balance…and here we sit…but tonight its on the topic that is a four letter word in all aspects....love. I am not a love hater, although that would be interesting. I believe in love. I d…

Faith's Funny Friday 2

So its Friday and I am guessing maybe, just maybe this four day work week has indeed felt longer than a regular five day work week and that maybe just maybe you need a laugh. So, as usual let me dig into the embarrassing and bizarre moments in my life, not that its spectacular, but it at least might make your Friday not drag....for at least the three minutes it takes you to read this ;)

For about the entire month of June I fought a terrible cold/sinus infection that moved into my chest and produced a ferocious cough. You know the kind that gets mistaken for a dog's bark. So fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when I had a date. At this point the only thing that really was hanging around from the cold/sinus riot in my body was a little chest congestion and the ferocious hacking cough. No worries, I did warn the poor guy that there was a bass drum stuck in my chest and sometimes tried to fight its way out! He picked me up and we went to dinner. The evening was progressing nicely wh…

My Saints

Image
Our dearest boys,
You came with something special and brought life back to a city that we dearly love. You came and we believed. You proved our faith in you to be true. Through the years, through the paper bags and the ridicule we stood by our Saints even when the world mocked our die hard belief that our Saints would win us that Superbowl. You proved us right when you brought us home the trophy and those rings. Once again our city thrived and black and gold flooded not only New Orleans but a state and even a country. For me personally you brought together a family. While we may not be blood our familys blood is black and gold and we gather every Saints game. We bring the dome energy to our living room and there is something magical when my football family, all decked out in their black and gold are cheering you, our boys on the screen, with good ole Cajun gumbo in the kitchen. While we may never meet face to face, you are apart of our family, so please let's see each other this se…
