You have GOT to be kidding me....

Okay peeps, remember my last post? The one about my missing crackers. Yeah, well....the food company/people are out to get me again. I'm beginning to think this is nothing short of a conspiracy to completely turn my lunch world upside down. You know how I eat the same thing everyday? (sandwich, crackers, 100 cal pack...sometimes I throw in an apple--to keep the doctor away, of course) Anyway, you are not gonna believe this. Get ready-- I can now no longer find my Keebler Grasshopper Cookies in the 100 calorie pack. Not at Kroger, not at Target. I am on the verge of panic. I realize there are wayyyyy more important things in the world than my daily dose of yummy, minty, crunchy chocolate. But hurts. Plus, I genuinely find it odd that now TWO of my lunchtime staples have disappeared. I can find no plausible explanation other than it must be the end times. If they take away my diet coke.... well, I can't even go there.

Bring them back!!!

I am on a mission. For about four years now, I have been in love. I mean....seriously, the object of my affection has been a daily part of my life. Every morning, I would long for eleven o'clock....that special time when my world would light up at the mere sight of my darling obsession.
I'm talking about Kellogg's All Bran Wheat Crackers in Garlic Herb flavor. My turkey sandwich, crackers, and diet coke make me one happy woman. But for the past several months, they have been MIA. I go to Kroger, and there -among all the HUGE selection of crackers- my favorite is nowhere to be found. I have taken comfort in the fact that Target still carries them. But alas, I can no longer find them at Target. I'm grieving. I have even written Kellogg's a letter expressing my undying love for the fiber-filled, flavorful amazingness. But so far, I have had to settle for Wheat Thins. No offense to Nabisco, but I just don't LOVE them. I only like them. So please.....join me in protesting to Kellogg's, Kroger, Target, and everywhere else....BRING THEM BACK!!!

This is me with my crackers.
This is me without my crackers.

Hey blog readers! I just wanted to do a very short little post today. I have many more planned :) My goal is to become a better blogger. Or at least a more frequent one. But this past month has been kinda crazy. With the debut of Miss Lucy Kate Rucker, we have all been quite busy loving on that precious baby. Can I just say that I adore her? From the moment I saw that little head come out with the enormous amount of black hair, I just fell in love. I never thought I could love another baby so quickly other than my own. But oh, she has just captured her Aunt Coco's heart!

Anyway, as wonderful as little LK is, this post is about another Lucy. I came across this blog through some friends on Facebook and have been keeping up with the precious family's journey as their little five year old was just diagnosed with brain cancer. I want to share the link with you and ask you to fervently pray for them. I don't know them, but my heart aches for little Lucy and her parents. I cannot begin to imagine what they are going through. It sends shivers down my spine to even think about one of my children being in that situation.... so young and fighting for her life. I am going to post the link to her blog, and I hope that you will pray with me for this family. They have been so heavy on my heart. But God is in the business of answering prayers! I am praying for complete healing for this little girl, comfort beyond comprehension for her family, and that God be glorified in sweet Lucy's life. No matter what happens, God is GOOD. I pray they can cling to that hope when everything in them wants to scream otherwise.
