Project 52: Would You Rather?

This past Friday, we took a jaunt across the state to pick up our things that have been stored in our wonderful neighbor's house for the past year.  Yes, it has actually been a year since we left Port Huron and now, all our junk is back together, well, at least the junk we decided to keep.  I was tired, even though all I had done all day was ride in the truck, talk with a wonderful woman, and eat delicious Chinese food.  Needless to say, I did not have my most creative night of date.  This seems to be a theme for me.  I need to get off my tuckus and get to work on this whole date thing! 
This is what we ended up doing.  Joel went and got us some frozen coffee drinks from McDonald's which sadly to say are just as good as Starbucks. (That's sad because Starbucks is in the coffee business and McDonald's is supposed to be in the burger business. But it appears that neither of them do their job well. I did read once however that they are both just in the real estate business, meaning it's not their product but their location that draws people into their establishments.  I'm inclined to believe that.)
We played Would You Rather from Simply Modern Mom.  It was a fun night.  The best one was actually an impromptu response to a scenario that Joel pulled "jump out of a fast moving bus" and I said in response "spend a day stuck in a bus with Keanu Reeves"  HA!  If you haven't seen the movie, don't!

I'm off, I have a little girl with a headache that threw up last night and a cat that appears to be suffering from intestinal issues.  Currently, he's laying in the shower and she is laying in my bed.  It should be a fun day.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Journey to Love Matt Mikalatos

Did you read Sky Lantern ? No? Well, go read it and then come back for this book. Yes, order them at the same time! I promise you, they'll both be worth it and they really are part of one another. Here's why, Matt Mikalatos lost a very dear friend, Shasta, he tells part of their story in Sky Lantern and fulfills a promise to with Journey to Love.  Journey to Love is a little book, almost a 40 day devotional with little vignettes of love and then ways for you to reflect that love and an exercise to grow in that aspect of love. It's not an easy book because love isn't an easy thing. the reflections and exercises sometimes take a few days to work through or a lifetime if we're honest.  I was touched by how Mikalatos decided to fulfill his promise to Shasta, how he managed to leave a little bit of their love on the written page for people to witness for years to come. It's beautiful and heartbreaking and challenging and rewarding. To be able to have a little glimpse
