  • I need to be cleaning, but Sylvester is asleep on my lap, and I don’t have the heart to move him.
  • It has been a looooong week.  And it’s only Wednesday.
  • We had a Valentine’s party at school today.  I came home with more chocolate than should be legal for one person.  Justin said something about not having to buy sweets for a few months.  Who is he trying to kid?  I’ll have this taken care of much sooner than that!
  • I’ve been thinking alot about baby names lately.  Nope, still not trying to get pregnant.  But I still think about it all the time.  Justin and I have two boy names picked out already.  It’s the girl names that give us trouble.  I, of course, have a list compiled of all my favorite names for first and middle.  He does not like any of them.  Some of them are “okay”, but none are winners.  Boo on that!  I want my names! haha.  What are some of your fave girl names?  and boy names for that matter?
  • Speaking of names, what is a good middle name for Kate?  Kate_______Perkins.  Hmmmm….
  • I’ve been feeling sad the last couple of days.  Just kinda down.  I wonder if it’s the weather.  It’s been cloudy and rainy and cold.  Gloom city. 
  • On a positive note, maybe it will snow tomorrow.  Then there would be no school.  Hoorayy!!!
  • Justin and I are celebrating Valentine’s Day a little early this year.  As in tomorrow night.  He has to work all weekend long, so tomorrow it is.  I’ve got to find the courage to get out and face the cold.  I still have not purchased his gift or the ingredients to make his favorite pie. 
  • His favorite pie is his momma’s Strawberry Pie.  I’ll have to try to remember to post the recipe.  It’s so yummy.
  • I super duper want to read Beth Moore’s new book.  The problem lies in the fact that I don’t have money to spend on another book right now, and the fact that I already have probably 20 books waiting to be read.  I can’t help it.  I’m a book addict that has no time to read.  :( 
  • On the menu for tonight: beef taco bake.  I’ve only made it once before.  I hope it’s as good as I remember.
  • And just for good measure… a picture:


This is from way back before we were married. We were both working at Outback at the time.  See the lovely “Safari” shirts? Gotta love those!

I loooooooooved the name Anna Kate when I was pregnant. I didn't know if it would be Anna Kate all as a first name, like Anna-Kate Alise or to have it Anna Katherine and call her Anna Kate. But Jeremiah nixed them all. Booooo.
He hated every name I picked, too. Then one day I said, "Keira" and he said it was okay. So it stayed! Ha! Then with Kinley I just said... "Her name is going to be Kinley!" Ha!
You will find the perfect name- then you will never imagine your baby being any other name!! :)
