Project 52: MLB.tv

I read through a couple of different Project 52 sites last week and someone (sorry I don't remember who exactly) had the brilliant idea of watching NASCAR with their husband as a date. Since Joel loves baseball, I checked out the schedule and wouldn't you know it, the Mariners had a 7:10 game on Friday! That day we picked up some ball park food including hot dogs, nacho chips with jalapenos, dry roasted peanuts, peanut butter M&M's, and ice cold Cokes!
Since we watch can watch the game off the Roku, there are no commercials, but there are commercial breaks. We brought out a trivia game that if you play it correctly has a baseball theme. It's Joel's game and we have not played it before. Instead of setting up the board, we just asked each other really old trivia questions. It made the game pass quickly.
My goal was to make it to the seventh inning stretch and I was able to with a full stomach and numerous funny questions.
I recommend watching a sporting event with your hubby if you can. It's fun to enter into his world and hang out for awhile.

  1. I love the baseball-themed food to go along with the game. And the funny trivia is a great idea to change it up a bit. Thanks for the great idea.

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.
