Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Tackle it Tuesday-Tag You're It!


Brenda at Queen of Good Intentions blessed me with this award! Thank you Brenda. I ALWAYS enjoy my visits to your blog!

And....


My funny friend Kim tagged me this week. By the way, she has a fantastic give away going on this week where you might just win this:

Go check it out. You have until Thursday to enter!


Back to the tag: I am suppose to list 15, 15 really?, things about me that I am not afraid to admit. Bear with me, I'll try to make it quick:


1. I started listening to my favorite Christmas CD's this year on October 31st. Oh, yes I did. I adore "Ring the Bells" and "Jesus Saves" on Travis Cottrell's new Christmas CD.

2. I will put up my Christmas decorations on my birthday, November 17th, like I always do. Oh, wait! That is next Monday??? Well, I may have to wait until the weekend, or maybe not! Yes, I know it is BEFORE Thanksgiving!

3. I only have one more Christmas present to buy and then I am finished! Woo-hoo!

4. I have 100 tulip and daffodil bulbs chilling in my refrigerator. I can hardly wait to plant them in my vegetable beds. I hope they look as pretty as I imagine that they will in the spring.

5. I once called my eye doctor to schedule my annual female exam. (Aren't you glad that you kept reading my list?) I told the receptionist my name and why I was calling and then I just heard laughter. I think I changed eye doctor's after that. I mean, how could I look at them in the eyes after that!

6. I received my first speeding ticket while coming home from Baylor University in my hot Fiero. I was always told that if you were stopped by a police officer to simply say, "Officer there was a huge bug on my windshield and I was just trying to get it to fly away." So...I tried it...guess what? They do not care!

7. I always dreamed of having a daughter...God blessed me with two! I am so blessed!!!

8. I can't write a blog or comment on someone else's blog without using exclamation marks...lots of them!!!!!! I can't help it!

9. I can't stand the dollup of Daisy commercials...you know..."Do the dollup...do...do...the dollup of Daisy!" Ugh!

10. My nickname from childhood was "Too Tall." A boy at school called Hannah "Too Tall" the other day and I had to smile and then tell her my story. She thought that was cool. She is only 11 and already 5'9. Keep growing, baby!

11. My first job, besides baby sitting, as a teenager was as a ride operator for the parachute ride at Six Flags Over Texas. I loved it. I saw a guy propose to his girlfriend on the ride one day. It was a cool moment! Shout out to Six Flags...it was such a fun place to work!

12. My husband doesn't take me deer hunting any more...cause I might just holler, "Run, Bambi, run!" What's the problem with that?

13. I love to wear Bath and Body Work's Vanilla Bean Noel stuff this time of year. I put some on the other night and Hannah said, "I love it when you wear that. It smells like home."

14. I sleep walk when I am extremely tired. I woke up on the front porch once. I'm glad that I don't sleep in the nude! How does anyone do that??? Melissa, do you know? ;-)

15. I Love Lucy episodes make me so happy. Vitametavegamin anyone?


Whew! Okay, now I get to tag 5 people!

I am passing on the Superior Scribbler Award to and tagging:


1. Lea-she always makes me smile. She has an amazing testimony and her love for the Lord shines so brightly.

2. Sunni-She is a fellow Baylor Bear and such an incredible wife and mother. I love to see pictures of her daughter Ava and see what's cooking at her house. She is expecting another precious daughter very soon.

3. Tracy-She is truly inspiring! I always look forward to reading about her thankful heart and her incredible love for the Lord. Her posts are always uplifting!

4. Brenda-at Queen of Good Intentions. (I know you tagged me, but I just had to return the favor...I can't help it!) I am in awe of her creativity in her decorating and in her party planning abilities. She always has something fun going on at her house!

5. Melodye-She is such a sweet, gracious, and generous lady. I always look forward to reading about her adventures in motherhood.

Joyfully,
Kristi

Oh those were great! I too use a lot of exclamation points lol. Oh and the too tall thing, I was called too tall, stretch, and amazon woman. And those were from my friends lol. I love being tall. Tell your daughter to keep standing tall and not to slouch like I did in High School. And yes I know someone who sleeps naked and I just couldn't do it, especially if I was prone to sleepwalking. That would have been funny.
Love you my friend.

What a great getting-to-know-you tag!!

Congratulations on your awards:-)

BP said...

Such a great list of 15 things! So many of them made me smile...the proposal you saw at the parachute, your daughter telling you you smelled like home, and the dollup of Daisy commercial.

Thanks for sharing the recipe with me.

Erica said...

That was so fun to read! How great to put out your Christmas decor so early...more time to enjoy it is ALWAYS better. And I really can't think of a better way to spend a birthday than decorating for the season.
I can't wait to see the pics of your spring flowers!
Have a great day.

Hey there friend,

I've got another goody for you! It is below the give away post.

Blessings!
Cheryl

Tracy said...

Congrats on those well-deserved awards! I giggled through your entire post! Great, great stuff. I too have the exclamation disease!! We also share commonalities about decorating early for Christmas, and listening to Christmas music long before most people. (My hubby and I have been decorating fools!) Thank you for tagging me. I'll get my 15 things up in the next day or so. You are such a hoot, but even better, a sweet, sweet blessing!

Hugs,
Tracy
