Snapshots of 2010

Another year is turning over and this morning I have pressed the rewind button for a little while in order to remember, reflect and rejoice for all the days that the Lord gave us in 2010.  This year has really been a sweet year for our family.  Here are the highlights of our year...

1. Bryant was home more this year!  I mentioned last year that his schedule slowed down the last half of the year.  It seems his slower schedule carried over to 2010.  Even with Bryant becoming qualified to do aerial refueling this year, he hasn't had to increase his number of trips and we have both enjoyed having him home more.

2. I went part time this year and love it!  My slower schedule + Bryant's slower schedule = loving life in 2010.

3. We celebrated 1 year in our new house this year!  Time goes by quickly but in a way this house seems like it has been home for much longer than a year.  We are now finished with all the big projects we wanted to do this year.  Our most recent projects entailed: small updates in the master bath, wood shelving in closets, and painting the exterior of the house.  

4. Miles turned 3 this year.  He's sweeter than ever and his personality is more even.  He loves company more now and only gives a warning bark when someone comes in instead of sounding the alarm.

5. I couldn't leave out our newest addition to the family, our 3 month old niece, Ellie.  Buying for a girl is fun with all the dresses, bows and ruffles!

6. We didn't take a big vacation this year, instead we had our first Staycation!  After all our work on the house, the week at home was perfect.  We did go on several short trips to Pickwick, Muscle Shoals and San Antonio.  Plus, I visited a city I can now cross off my travel list, Vegas

7. Bryant and I both turned 30 + 1 this year and celebrated 8 years of marriage!  He was home for his birthday this year for the first time in several years.  In fact, he was home the entire month of December, a first in 5 years.

8. We joined a new Bible Fellowship class this year.  We absolutely love Eric and Penny Brand.  It is a blessing to sit under such a gifted teacher of God's Word.  We are very excited about the class and look forward to what God has in store in the years to come.

9. We have seen the healing hand of God in the life of a dear friend.  A year ago our sweet friend, April, was diagnosed with breast cancer and today she is cancer-free.  We give our Healer all the praise and glory!

10.  I read through the Bible chronologically this year.  And have just finished reading through the New Testament for the second time!  I read it like a novel from the beginning to the end.  I finally get God's story.

11. My blog celebrated its 1 year anniversary this year and received a new look.  I ♥ Penny Lane Designs.

12. This year I have learned that without faith it is impossible to please God.  It is so simple yet it is so difficult.  It's all He requires.  It's all that matters.  I can lay all the other stuff aside- the things I think are mine to offer God - and all that is left that really matters is if my heart trusts in God.  The trust that completely relies on Him to come through for me and the dependency on Him that drives me to desperately seek Him to give me wisdom for this life.  And as I am living this faith life,  my heart rests in perfect peace knowing my God is able to do exceeding ABOVE all that I ask or imagine according to the Power that works in me.  And my response can be nothing less than a life offered in continual praise to Jesus Christ, who is worthy of power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise forever and ever.

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." - Hebrews 11:6

Candy Cane Cake Pops


I finally made my first cake pops!  I've been wanting to try Bakerella's cake pops for awhile, and when I saw these festive treats on Hostess with the Mostess I just couldn't hold off any longer.  They reminded me of my favorite candy from Godiva, the Candy Cane Truffle.

I had a lot of fun making these cake pops.  They were time consuming, but now that I've made them and know what to expect I don't think it would take as long the next time.  Adding the red ribbon to the lollipop sticks took an extra 30-45 minutes, but it completed the look.  Plus I didn't have to decorate the pops with any detailed faces, so that saved some time on the other end.  I would recommend adding the ribbon before dipping the cake pop as it's much easier to be precise without cake on the end of your stick!

A few other cake pop tips: Don't forget to add the peppermint extract to the cake batter!  I remembered that minor detail while the first cake was in the oven.  Also, I used paramount crystals as a thinning agent in the candy melts as recommended by a local baking shop.  Without the crystals, my candy melts would have been too thick for that perfectly smooth, Bakerella-style candy coating. 

For the crushed candy canes, I used King Leo Soft Peppermint Stick Candy instead of hard candy canes.  I would definitely substitute the softer candy again.  For the second design with bright red candy melt stripes, I would use a smaller tip next time.  I used the #4 tip on these, and it gave me a thicker stripe than I wanted.


I gave some of these cake pops to co-workers at our Christmas party.  I wrapped them individually with mini treat bags and leftover ribbon.  Then I placed the pops in brown paper mache gift bags that were just the right height for the cake pops to peak over the edge.  Bryant cut small pieces of Styrofoam for each bag so the cake pops would stand up straight while transporting them.  


I didn't know what to expect when I took my first bite of cake pop.  Let's just say there will be many more in my future =)

Santa's Workshop

I LOVE wrapping presents.  The evenings before Christmas are spent wrapping several gifts each night with either Christmas music or Christmas movies playing in the background. And if I need the channel changed... well, I have a helper for that.

This year Bryant bought me a card table to use for my wrapping station.  How did I ever get by without it?  Puppy decided it was also a good hiding spot - guess he was worried I was going to wrap him too.

Day 37

Since my last update, things are improving slowly but surely for the back patient.  The day before Thanksgiving we visited the neurosurgeon and he verified that B is on the right track with his physical therapy.  His second appointment is in eight weeks to make sure he is progressing as expected.  He won't be flying for three months to give the disc adequate time to heal. 

I don't think we'll ever forget this year's Thanksgiving dinner as B stood up at the end of the table and ate his dinner standing up!  He didn't sit down for the first time until the following week and it was for only three minutes on the way home from PT.  The next week the sitting progressed to 10 minutes.  And this past week he has been able to drive himself around and sit down for meals at home.  As long as he has a break to stretch in between periods of sitting, even if it's just standing up for a few minutes, he then is able to sit again.  He's fine when we're out running errands - the in and out of the car gives him the breaks he needs.  His pain has subsided for the most part and now he is focusing on reducing the stiffness in his lower back.

Last night at my work's Christmas dinner party was the first event of the Season we've been able to attend.  Tomorrow morning we plan to go the worship service which will be another solid hour of sitting for him.  The therapist told him to begin increasing the amount of time he sits starting this weekend and decrease the number of stretches and exercises at home.  He is going twice a week to PT and will continue those visits for quite some time. 

The sunny side of the past few weeks is that we have been together.  This is the first time in the past five years that B will be home for the whole month of December.  He's never missed a Christmas, but this year he won't be missing the weeks that lead up to it.  We also spent his birthday together which he is almost always out of town for.  I've been able to be at home most of this month with him and we've only been getting out when we have to.  We welcome this change of schedule even though it's due to  unwelcome circumstances.  

We are praying for the God of reversals to completely heal B through physical therapy.  "By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong.  It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through Him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see." - Acts 3:16

The 1st Bake of Christmas

I'm in the mood to bake.  And to decorate.  And to package all my goodies and give them away this Season.  To neighbors, co-workers, family and friends and even doggies.  Yes, I have all my bases covered this year.

I'm starting the Holiday baking frenzy off with something easy - a gift for the neighbors.  Every year I have good intentions to bake for the neighbors but never get around to it.  So this year I decided to start early and split up the baking.  I figured most will appreciate a healthy baked good especially when sweets are too easy to come by this time of year.  I found this yummy recipe for Coconut-Cranberry Muffins from Cooking Light.   Their recipes always seem to turn out great.

I have six neighbors to bake for, but instead of making all the muffins at once I decided to spread it out over the next week.  The batch I made today made 14 muffins, filling up two boxes for the neighbors and leaving four for us.


In a couple of days, I'll double the recipe and take the remaining gifts and we'll have some more fresh muffins for breakfast.  Plus it's nice to have time to talk to the neighbors as we deliver the gifts and not to be in a rush to deliver all of them in one evening. 

I tied a ribbon around the box and added a Christmas card since I had extras this year.  I think in years past I was always concerned with making something elaborate and missed the whole point.  I hope this simple gift is received for what it is.  A small act of kindness for those closest to home.

Penny the Celebrity Poodle

I've had lots of time this weekend to catch up on reading my favorite blogs.  On Thursday, Bakerella posted quite the unexpected surprise!  Not just because she hung out with Blake Lively while she was in New York or the fact that Blake loves to bake.  The biggest surprise was seeing a current picture of Blake's Maltipoo, Penny!

You may remember when I was looking for my perfect pup on the internet, I wanted a chocolate brown Maltipoo like Penny.  I had seen a picture of Blake and her puppy and was just smitten!

Surprisingly, Penny has lightened up a lot since her puppy days.  I was told that Maltipoos get lighter as they age and when you look at the pictures below you can see how light Miles has gotten since he was little.  While I was googling older pictures of Penny, I ran across a picture of her when Blake first got her... and she's red!  I never realized she had red in her!  I was told that Miles' dad was a red poodle and that is where he got his shade of apricot.  If you want anything other than a white Maltipoo, you need one with some red since that is obviously where their color comes from.  Look how similiar Penny and Miles look when they were younger.  Since Penny is a teacup, she kept her short ears and has more of the Maltipoo face.  Miles has long legs and more of a Poodle face.  Wouldn't they make a cute couple?

Group Fun

Something I look forward to during the Holidays is spending time with friends and family.  I have a sweet group of friends from high school that still get together ever so often even though two have children and one lives out of town.  Our moms are good friends and hang out regularly.  The weekend before Thanksgiving we were able to get the whole group together for a night of sharing old memories and making new ones.  Bryant was laying on the couch upstairs the whole night and afterward commented that the noise never stopped!  I guess that's what happens when you get a bunch of cheerleaders and their moms together =)  I just can't believe that it's been 13 years since we graduated together!

 
My sister and her family came to visit for Thanksgiving.  My nephews are now five and three.  L told me about the Snowy Nights in My Big Backyard at Memphis Botanic Garden that she heard about from C.  It was a lot of fun!  I'm so glad we thought to snap a picture of all of us on our way out.

Day 11

Today's the 11th day that Bryant has been unable to sit down.  Literally.

Two years after he became a pilot he went to the doctor once for some back pain and hasn't had to revisit the issue again until about 4 months ago.  All of his trips are international so an eight to twelve hour flight is the norm for him.  On his last several trips, after one of these long legs, he would experience pain and stiffness in his lower back that would only subside after icing it for the remainder of the day.

Since these episodes starting occurring more frequently, he decided to start physical therapy a couple of weeks ago.  After just three appointments, he was already feeling better and back to running a little bit each day.   This same week he had to leave for a trip and by the end of the second day his back began hurting again.  To date, this has been the worst and longest episode he has had.  It started on the 12th of this month and he has not been able to sit down since.

Because he was on a trip, it was quite an ordeal getting him the medicine he needed and a flight home.  It's pretty hard to fly home commercially when you can't sit down!  He stood up for most of the three hour flight home since the shorter flights don't offer the Business Elite lie flat seats.  However, we are thankful he was not overseas as an international flight would have been miserable for him!  He has only two positions these days - standing up or lying flat on his back.  Nothing in between.

Since he's been home, we've been to two physical therapy appointments and the PT has given him some stretching exercises to target his lower back.  He is on some anti-inflammatory drugs which are slowly helping to increase his mobility.  Friday morning, he had an MRI which showed the disc is moderately herniated - which explains the excruciating pain he experienced.  Wednesday he has an appointment with a neurosurgeon at Semmes Murphy.  This appointment should bring some clarification and confirm if he is on the right track with his PT schedule.

Everything we have heard so far is that he will not need surgery at this point.  Back surgery is usually the last option and much can be reversed through PT.  His condition is very common in pilots due to the nature of their job - the sitting in cramped spaces for hours and the effects from the pressure difference.

Everyone has been very helpful with shared stories and experiences.  Even though there are probably a million different issues one can have with the back, there seems to be a camaraderie among fellow back pain sufferers.  Bryant has received lots of advice and understanding- all of which are appreciated.  If only the answer was truly as simple as, "strengthen your core."

So here we are, 11 days and counting and 11 pounds lighter (collectively).  Pain killers haven't done much for Bryant's appetite and I guess my missing two can be chalked up as sympathy pounds.  I'm sure mine will find their way back let's say on... Friday!

Looking on the bright side, Bryant will be home for quite awhile.  He won't be flying for the rest of the year as he allows some time for the physical therapy to make some progress.  We appreciate your prayers so far and covet them for the days ahead.

Happy Saturday

Well, here we are.  My birthday week is coming to a close with Thanksgiving next week and Christmas around the corner.  I called my mom yesterday just to read off my calendar to her for the next 6 weeks.  The conversation started with, "Tomorrow I need to..." and ended with "then it's Christmas."  It was as if reading the events out loud was my way of RSVP-ing to myself.  Convincing myself that I can make every event from now until the end of the year.  But with our latest development, we'll just have to take it a day at a time.

But that's not what this blog post is about.  I will give some updates soon but since I only have a few minutes this morning, today's post will be random and light.  But not for the fainthearted ;)

Don't let the Season knock you off your feet...

Closet Sale

The last couple of weeks I have been waist deep in clothes!  I organized my sister's closet one day while she was at work (my love of organizing gets me into big projects from time to time) and what started as a day project turned into this...

Amanda's Closet Sale ~ Thursday the 18th ~ 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.

She has decided to downsize the contents of her closet simply because there are not enough days to wear all her clothes.  Her profession is all about clothes so she is constantly acquiring them.  So much so, that she is even selling items from just last year.

You can R.S.V.P. to the event on Facebook.  If anyone needs directions, I can email them to you.  Hope to see you there.  It's sure to be a fun time!

Candid Camera

One of my friends switched to the iPhone this week.  Every time I think back to life before the iPhone, I remember how annoying it was to have to delete a photo before saving a new one.  There's a dozen things to love about my iPhone, but being able to keep hundreds (and I'm assuming thousands) of pictures is a favorite!  I frequently send my sister a picture of an outfit for her approval or text my mom a picture of an antique asking for her opinion...

Right now I have around 350 pics saved on my phone.  When I scroll through them I see shoes, clothes, furniture, home decor, my nephews and niece, and... lots and lots of Miles.  He has quite a personality and at least once a week we find ourselves grabbing our phones to catch him in the moment - whether it's some hilarious pose he's in or some ridiculous arrangement of toys he's left behind.

One night he was hanging out with Mandy and she happened to catch these series of pictures.  She had bought a stuffed animal that day for a baby shower gift and had set it on her desk.  The next time she walks in her room, she grabs her phone in time for these...

I want that.
If I sit, maybe I'll get it.
Somebody help me.

Fall Getaways

This time of year is the ideal time for a weekend getaway to enjoy the cooler weather and changing colors.  My criteria for the perfect fall getaway includes a destination not too far from home to keep the trip relaxed and unscheduled.  No flights to catch and no worries about how much or how little to pack.  Here are a couple of ideas for the budget conscious, the weekend spender, and for those who want to indulge. 

1. If you're looking for a quick getaway that doesn't break the bank, head to Mountain Harbor Resort and Spa on Lake Ouachita.  This quaint resort is located 25 miles west of Hot Springs and was voted #1 spa in the South!  Turtle Cove Spa offers many packages for the weekend traveler including their popular I'm On a Budget SPA Package.  Now to find the perfect weekend...


2. If you're up for a splurge, Big Cedar Lodge in the Ozark Mountains, fits the bill.  Located just 10 miles south of Branson, Missouri, this resort offers you a choice of a cozy cottage or a secluded log cabin.  Reservations book up fast so this getaway might need to wait until 2011...


3. If money were no object, you would find me passing the time at Blackberry Farm.  This 4,200 acre estate is located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.  Just knowing a place like this exists makes me happy and just visiting their website puts a smile on my face.  Maybe I'll get to visit one day...

The Bible in One Year


The start of this month marked the completion of my first year reading through the Bible chronologically.  I started The One Year Chronological Bible NIV last fall along with Iva May's One Year Chronological Bible Devotional Study.  Reading God's Word and reading it chronologically has changed my life.  It is my intention to read through the Bible every year and in chronological order.  As I reflect over the past year, here are a few things that have made quite an impression:

1. 75% of the Bible is Old Testament!  Why have we spent 75% of our time studying the New Testament?

2. It only takes three months to read through the New Testament.  Out of those three months, the Gospels only take up six weeks (September 28 - November 11).

3. It was a lot harder than it seemed to keep up with the daily readings.  Missing a day or two turned into several days off schedule and before long I was two weeks behind.

4.  My goal this past year was to finish in a year - some days I read only half of the passage while other days were spent playing catch up reading as many as four passages in one day.  This year my goal is to not miss any days and to actually stay on schedule.

5. Reading the entire Bible through in a year helps us to get our doctrine from Scripture (exegesis) and prevents us from bringing our opinions to Scripture (eisegesis).

6.  Scripture shows us story after story and tells us over and over again that God is a merciful God.  And He is so very compassionate.

7. The people in the Bible were real people with real circumstances and they were so very flawed.

8. My favorite book is Genesis.  Love it.  I recently was told the book of Genesis spans approximately 2,000 years of history.

9. My second favorite book is Deuteronomy.  I don't think I could ever forget the Blessings and Cursings chapter (28).

10. We are commanded all throughout Scripture to care for the poor and the oppressed.

11. Faith is the only way to please God.  "... for he that comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6)

Blue Monday

This summer I've been on a lemonade kick.  I think I've tried practically everyone's lemonade in town.  I think before all of our warm weather leaves I'll have to try this twist on my favorite drink.



This month Tiffany & Co. launched a collection of handbags that bears their signature robin's egg blue on every handbag.  This article I read in the Wall Street Journal said the handbags will be replacing the crystal and fine china that used to fill every Tiffany & Co. store.  It's interesting that handbags are now more popular than fine china.  Gone are the days of fancy dinner parties and porcelain teacups (sigh)... These days handbags are all the rage.  Even though I won't be purchasing any of these $$$$ designer handbags, I can appreciate their style.  I wonder if these handbags come in big blue boxes?

Love the Tiffany blue lining!


This crocodile bag has a touch of blue on the hardware.


Today I received a save-the-date card in the mail from Bryant's cousin.  She is getting married in March of next year under the blue skies of Gulf Shores, Alabama.  This will be my first destination wedding to attend.  I can't wait!

New Season, New Look

The calendar says fall is officially here and today I actually believed it.  We had our back doors open all afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed the mid-seventies weather.  I'm not sure I've ever been so excited to see fall arrive as I have been this year.  Did you know this summer was the hottest Memphis summer since 1850?  Pretty impressive.

In addition to the arrival of the new season, my blog has undergone some changes this weekend.  Shortly after I created my blog, I decided if I was still blogging after a year or so I would look into adding a unique design to my blog.  Over the last year my blog has slowly evolved including a name change earlier this year.  A custom design was next on the list but the hardest part was finding the right designer.  Fifteen months and 105 posts later, I finally found a blog designer I love after seeing one of her designs on my friend, Natalie's cute blog.  Marina at Penny Lane Designs was the perfect fit for my blog.  She even named her graphic design boutique after one of her Maltese pups - a girl after my own heart =)

Marina's website is very informative and organized which made it very clear what my design options were when placing my order.  I like all of her designs!  Click HERE to view some of her recent blog makeovers.  You can check out my new look at Mel's Meadow.
