Hi blog readers. It's Corrie, and I feel quite yucky today. All I want to do is crawl in the bed and sleep this off. But...you can't call in sick when you're a mom. So....I guess I'll just have to suck it up. Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. We sure did! We had a great time just hanging out as a family. This was the first year Lily seemed to really grasp the meaning of it all. She literally sang "Up from the grave He arose!!" the ENTIRE day. She was thrilled! I loved it. I get chills just thinking about that Sunday morning two thousand-ish years ago when Christ victoriously conquered the grave. Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Oh! We have some fun blogs coming up! (How's that for extreme subject change?) We've been compiling a list of some of our favorite things. You know, various products or things we really enjoy using. I always love reading other people's favorites. I guarantee if you swear by some product, I will probably go out and try it myself. So...we thought we'd share with you some of our favorites! We'd love to hear some feedback on some of your "must-haves", so be thinking!! For example, one must have for me: Nutella. I truly love it. It's just a dream in a plastic jar as far as I'm concerned. Which brings me to my funny story that will wrap up this rambling post.... Last week, I walked into the bathroom where Patrick was getting ready for work, and he asked me what was on my neck. I looked in the mirror and to my absolute horror, I saw quite the ominous looking brown mole. Well, if you know me at all, then you probably know where my mind immediately went. I was thinking..."I wonder if I can get in to the doctor today?" I mean, people, this looked bad. Really bad. I needed to see a specialist ASAP!! I reached up to touch and check the ABCD's of my mole (asymmetrical, border, color, diameter...for those people who don't read Mayo Clinic website daily), and lo and behold, my "mole" came off as I started to rub it. And that, my friends, is because it was Nutella. I told you I loved the stuff.


  1. I hope you are feeling better! I know that 99.6 degree fever can be rough! Lol... seriously though, you sounded bad! And I will say, nutella is the best!! Just picked some up at the store yesterday!

  2. Hope your feeling better today. Haha, also happy to hear that the mole was an easy fix. I've never had Nutella, something about a chocolatey spread just doesn't appeal to me. More for y'all to enjoy!
