Coffee Date Friday

       HAPPY Friday, friends!  If we were having coffee today, I would tell you these 5 things:

* I am OB-sessed with this deflate-gate drama.  I ask Devin about two trillion questions every night about what is going on.  He is annoyed.  This could have been avoided by the NFL simply providing the footballs at all times, instead of the teams.  #doy #hireme  And then I heard that some teams like to condition their footballs or something crazy like that before games.  Um, if you are supposedly a Pro football player and make millions of dollars a year, shouldn't you be good enough to play with brand new un-conditioned footballs?  #sissies

*  More Superbowl...but food.  Last year I did a taco bar, this year I'm thinking sloppy joe's or chili.  What are you fixing?

* A goal has been made to go on 50 dates in 2015.  I think we are on #4.

* I got Bringing Up Boys by James Dobson from my in-laws for Christmas.  Basically the whole book has been highlighted.  My absolute favorite quote is: "Remember you are raising a man.  Every time you raise a responsible, loving, caring man you are making the world a better place for women." Hmmm.  Let that one soak in.

* A few things have been crossed off my Life List  since I posted it last year.  #6, 29, 40, 47, 49, 50.  Two were a part of this post.

What things would you share if we had coffee?
The weekend is here!  Do something nice for someone.  


  1. Yea! A post from one of my favorite girls! I've missed them (and you!)

    Here are my 5 things:
    1) I miss you!!!! And, please tell Dane to slow down! I can't believe how much he is growing!
    2) I made a new recipe last night courtesy of Six Sisters. You should try it. Super easy; get out your crock pot, add some chicken breast, 1 c of your fav BBQ sauce, 1 c of apricot jam, one package of dry onion soup mix, and 2 T water....delicious and easy!
    3) One week out of the hospital for D and it has been the best 7 day stretch we have had in years, truly....maybe a miracle? Who knows, but I am cherishing it!!!!
    4) I really want the Patriots to lose....
    5) I start work next week and I am super nervous about it!

    Miss you and love you! René

  2. Bringing up Boys is a WONDERFUL book! I'm still so amazed at all the turns your life has taken- such a beautiful story. I truly miss you, but am so grateful to see the blessings that are pouring into your life. God is Good!!
