And the winner is........

And the winner is: #2 Sabrina!!

Okay, so I have my kids as my witness and I am glad that I decided to do a random drawing! lol!

There is no way that I could choose myself!

I will be doing another giveaway soon, so keep checking back!

Congrats! I hope that you enjoy this giftcard! (Heaven knows that I wouldn't! lol!)

For some reason, when I post the random number thingy, it won't keep the number that it chose. I pinky promise that it was #2!! Ask my kids, they won't lie to you!! lol!!

None for me, thanks.....

I have something that I need to come clean about.

I know that it may turn some of you away from reading my blog, but I feel that I must be honest.

I don't drink coffee.

There, I said it.

I feel much better now!! lol!

Truth be told, I have never liked the taste. I always think that I may be able to muster up something in me to make myself like it, but I just can't. It tastes like, umm........I don't even know what to describe it as.

Like coffee.

I don't even like cold coffee drinks or desserts with a coffee taste! I know, it seems UNAMERICAN, doesn't it?

That being said, remember what I said here?

So, I have come to the conclusion that I am the only person (well, me and my hubby) that doesn't drink coffee. I figured that the perfect giveaway would be..................

A $10.00 gift card to STARBUCKS!!!!

Here are the rules:
1) You must link my blog in your blog and/or tweet,
2) become a follower
3) leave a comment telling me that you have linked me and what has been your favorite post so far! (and maybe what the appeal is with coffee! lol!)

I will do a random drawing on Tuesday, June 30. Best of luck to all!!

I hope that you are having a great week!

Oh, the sidekick....

While cooking dinner tonight, I told Beatrice that Ed McMahon had passed away today. She had never heard of him before, and asked what did he did. I told her that he was Johnny Carson's sidekick on the "Tonight Show".

Gertie came in and said, "So he knew that stuff was gonna happen before it did?" I just stood there for a minute, trying to understand what the two could possibly have to do with each other. Then it dawned on me.


She thought that he was Johnny Carson's psychic.

What an imagination, that one.

Funny. Good times, good times.

Oh yeah, you know it's true.......

This is a repost. Funny......I still feel the same way. Enjoy.


Of this I am sure.......

*Please take this post with a wink and a smile.

Do you ever wonder what your mansion in Heaven will be like?

I like to think that I will have enough room for me and all my angel friends, plenty of room for entertaining and the ability to snap my fingers and have a clean mansion. I know that all of the disciples will want to come and "hang" at my crib.

But the one thing that I pray I will have in my mansion is a


Oh yeah, you know it!

I have said this forever and I know that God truly knows my heart and really will consider this for me.


But on the flip side.

Even though I can't stand the thought of what hell may be like. I would like to think that I know of two things that will most certainly be there.

As part of the ongoing torture and punishment, I am most certain that everyone will be issued two things when they arrive.

Math books and pantyhose.

That's right, I believe that people in hell will be doing Math and putting on pantyhose over and over and over and over and over and over again.

That would be enough torture for me.

I am convinced of this even more now as I am taking a math class as a pre-requisite for nursing.


As I am writing this, I am supposed to be studying for a test that I have today.

I feel rebellious.

So as I am trying to pass the word along, please pass it too.

hell is forever and hot.
It has math and pantyhose.

Of this I am sure.

Have a great day!

* Please understand that I DO NOT take Hell lightly. I fully understand that Hell is real, and that there is no light-hearted moments there. My sincere wish is that everyone that you know and love knows and has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This is meant to express my sincere hatred of both math and pantyhose, not to diminish the reality of Hell.*

Just an FYI..........

I am supposed to be doing my math test online, but I decided that I needed a little break.....

you know, all work and no play makes Kim a grumpy girl!

I looked at one of my fave blogs, (notice that it is on my blog roll at the bottom.....she is one of my faves and I put her on here a year ago!) and what did I see???????????????

A GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah, a good one, girls!

It is a Coach Purse!!!!

Be still my heart!

I thought about being stingy and not telling you, but I figured that if you love me and you win it that you could give it to me we could share it! lol! (who's kidding?)

Here is the link to her blog:

Best of luck to me all of you!
