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.

Boo Mama's DipTacular

Today is Friday woo hoo! I just have to say this before I burst, thank you for your prayers for our precious daughter Rachel. I am seeing her prayer reminder buttons all over this blessed blog land and it brings me to tears every time! You will never know how much that means to us.

We are still believing that nothing is too difficult for God and praying that He heals her before surgery, if He so chooses. Thank you for joining us on this journey of faith!

Okay, it is Friday and I am ready for some fun, how about you? My next door neighbors are huge Texas Tech fans (boo! on TT, not on the neighbors....sic 'em bears....okay I feel better) anyway, they have been working all week long on getting their tail-gating trailer ready for the big football season, and it has been fun to watch. They are excited about football!

I like football games mainly for the social aspect, so Boo Mama's diptacular event was just what I needed. I like a good dip, or in the words of Sam from I-Carly (one of our daughters' favorite shows) Mama likes me some dip.
My first fave is 7 layer dip, but there are lots of recipes out there, so I'll stick to my other 2 faves:

Pioneer Woman's Black Eyed Pea Salsa....yes it can be counted as a dip!

You can find her recipe here. We also added a mushed up avocado, like PW, to the mix and the entire dip was gone in seconds....yum!

And if you need a quick but delicious recipe grab some sour cream and a
little packet of this lovely:

It's called Fiesta Ranch and it is wonderful. You can find it next to the dry salad dressing packets. All you have to do is mix it into a tub of sour cream, chill for a little, unless you are impatient (there is that "p" word again) like me and then you can just dive in, grab a carrot if you are feeling a little healthy, or some tortilla chips and enjoy!

Happy dippin'!

Hello my friend...didn't realize there was a button until today. I've grabbed it for my site as well, and you can count on my prayers. Keep us posted.

Love those dips you posted. Yum!

You go girl! I love me some dip too....are we the only football fans? You gotta come see Josh's pics from his game last night...I was so proud of him...he played defense...he played offense...I couldn't breathe half the game but we won and he gave me a beautiful smile afterward!!

We are so praying for Rachel...I've heard him tell so many of his friends about her and he even looked up neurology and her condition so he could explain it better to people (he is so compassionate and precious)!! He also asked for prayer from his teammates and coaches during request time.

I love you, Kristi, and I'm so glad we have the Lord to hold us up and give us moments of peace where we can just talk about 'dip'...so glad it wasn't a blonde thing too! lol

I so want to wrap my arms around you and embrace you! I hope you cann feel it! ((love & hugs))
