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.

Giddy-Up?

After school, I ran a few errands....fun errands....like Target and Kohls and Hobby Lobby....oh yeah and Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte~ yum!

In between errands, I was singing my heart out to Mandissa and Skillet songs. Oh, it was a fun time with the Lord, just He and I. I decided to run in to look for a cute pair of shoes at Kohls.
Naturally, they only had a size 11 and 11 1/2, not my size, so I was headed back to my suburban.

On the way out, I could not believe my eyes!
Are those stirrup pants? Get out of town~no way!

Sure enough, the stirrups are riding back in to the fashion scene. Really?
I laughed out loud when I saw them. The lady next to me may or may not have found me slightly weird. Oh, well. I grabbed my phone and snapped a picture of the pants, not the lady. Ha! And then I almost cried....yes my emotions tend to run on the wild side these days.

You see, stirrup pants will always remind me of my precious Aunt Faye. She loved stirrup pants. She use to wear them with athletic socks and tennis shoes. One of the funniest memories was when Mom, Aunt Faye, and I went to the big Christmas craft show in Wichita, Kansas. Aunt Faye had worn her black stirrup pants that day and the stirrups would not stay in the right place. She kept trying to cram them back under her foot and into her shoe....and they kept popping out. Finally, she decided to just let them win and they remained outside of her shoes for the rest of the day. We all three had the best laugh over that. Ah, thank you Father, for fun reminders of incredible memories that you know I cherish!

I don't know if I will jump back in the saddle, as far as stirrup pants are concerned, but it was fun to see them again! Have a blessed weekend!
Please, visit Kim for more Friday Funnies

Oh that's so fun! I had some stirrup pants. It seems one of them always felt weird in one of my shoes or something. I can't exactly remember but I remember one side not being that comfortable for whatever reason, but the other side feeling fine.

Precious sister in Christ,

I saw your daughters prayer button on another blog and just had to come over and check on her.

I have 2 blogs - one is specifically for prayer needs. I am posting your daughters button there and will be lifting her up daily as well as will many others who join me in my prayer warrior mode!

I actually have prayed for a little girl who has this same malformation so I was a little familiar with it.

At His Feet for your daughter and for your family.

Many blessings!
