Never say this word to a guest.

I loved this article  about the one word you should Never say to a guest in your home,
I am guilty! I am so very guilty. I do it all the time.

The article made me think...
...I am being ungrateful when I point out the negatives in my house.

Jeff works hard...
1. So we can live in our home.
2. Fixing up and taking care of our home.

What kind of a thank you am I giving him if I complain?

When I focus on the things that aren't finished or are messy or need to be fixed or painted...
...I lose sight of what I have!
There are people in this world who would give anything to have a house half the size of mine!
Unpainted upstairs trim and all! ;)

{Brother selfie...I love it.}

This little fluff-ball turned 2 months old on Sunday. ^^^
He follows me with his eyes. He smiles at us. He giggles. He's way too much fun.

...We baked M&M cookies today.
..Frankie slept most of the day....it's his favorite activity.
....My kids wrapped a few of their Christmas gifts.
..Two more days and MY SISTER IS COMING FOR A VISIT!!!!! I can't wait.

I love you December.


  1. Ohhh good one. I am guilty too. I always think of one lady in particular when I have guests over. When I was younger if we were ever at her house she apologized the entire time. Made excuses for e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. I vowed to never be like that and I've tried hard but occasionally it slips up on me.
    Your baby. I want him. If he would model for any baby clothing line I would buy it. :)

  2. I am guilty of this! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Soooooo interesting because a couple of months back I read this post: http://www.tiffanyruda.com/2014/10/26/true-hospitality/ written by a blogger I follow and it really spoke to me. She is so right about what it truly means to be hospitable. The tree is gorgeous, Frankie's hair kills me, and I LOVE the brother selfie--->brelfie?? hehe XO-Chris

    1. For some reason I JUST read your comment!
      Loved that article AND her photos. Thanks so much for sharing. There is so much to truth to what she said!!!

  4. I don't know that I've been here much, but when I do, it's beautiful. Contentment is beautiful. Supporting our man thru our words is just cool. Such cute pics. Bless you.
