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.


I'm just checking in.

How is your week?

Mine is Crappie so far thank you.

Notice I said "crappie"...like the fish! I am 40 years old and my mother doesn't like for me to say it...you know the other way...so I changed it to "crappie" pronounced "croppie." Yes, I did.

Here is the exciting list:

Sunday: Take oldest daughter to Nerd Camp...sorry band camp.

She is a fish out of water (more fish references). I've never seen to so many flashes of light when we entered a room. Band nerds everywhere stopped tuning their instruments when she and Jami walked in. And the flash of light? All of their braces of course!

I really am not meaning to be cruel about the "nerd" part. Oh, crappie! Did I offend anyone? I'm sorry! I'm sure you are not a nerd!

These people at camp really are...excluding Rachel and Jami of course!

They wake the nerd herd up every morning with tubas....I wish I were kidding.

This was Rachel's text to me last night, "PLEASE, COME GET ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" And then she called me and nearly cried. I really want to go get her but my friend, Jami's mom calmly explained to the girls and to me, that if they want to come home early they need to clear it with their band teacher...clearly Dyan is the calm, reasonable mom around here. Mrs. C, please expect a sad phone call from your drum majors today.

Apparently, this really isn't Drum Major camp~it's Band Camp and she isn't learning anything new except what not to wear! Oiy!

Monday was a great day! Awesome times at home trying to get my pricing together for my upcoming photography business! Woo-hoo!!!!! I really am excited about this one. It is not "Crappie" at all...unlike the majority of this week.

Tuesday I attended a workshop on Excel.

Isn't that exciting!

I would have rather plucked my eyebrows!

It was looooooooooooooooong and I only learned 2 new things.

But, last night was the highlight of my week. I did a photo shoot with my nephews and they really do light up my life....do you remember that song? I loved that song. I use to roller skate to that song with my ever so cool leg warmers (maybe I should have gone to Nerd Camp this week). Remember who sang it? I do. Name that singer!

Today is set to be another "Crappie!" morning...it's my "annual" appointment with my doctor but first I will face nurse Barracuda who will frown at me when I get on those dreaded, could not possibly be correct, scales...and then she will wonder why my blood pressure is slightly elevated when she takes my blood pressure after I see that dreaded number on the scales! I will keep muttering to myself, "I am a daughter of the King of kings and Lord of lords and He loves me anyway!"

Yep, it's a "Crappie" week for sure. But, I guess I'll grab my fishing pole (crappie...as in fish...remember?) and make lemons out of lemonade....sorry I haven't fished in years and I didn't know how to wrap up this awesome (hear the sarcasm) post.

Ya'll have a great day! I hope it's not crappie!

Hope your week transforms from Crappie into blessed and beautiful!

Debbie Boone sang that song if I remember correctly.
I remember roller skating to it too, but not with leg warmers - with giant puff balls & a bell in the center tied to the top of my skates!

You make me laugh...and smile!!

I hope your week turns around...real soon...or..I guess you'll be spending the remaining parts of the week with your fishing pole in hand. lol

Oh my friend, I'm sorry for your "crappie" week. I had to laugh at the nerd camp stuff. Your poor ultra cool daughter must stand out horribly! LOL!
And I see someone put Debbie Boone for singing You Light Up My Life but for some reason I want to say Ann Murray. But I'm probably wrong. LOL!
I hope the rest of the week gets better. If you were here you could come to my part on Friday! That would end the week with a guaranteed laugh! Hee! Hee!

This made me laugh, that your Mom still doesn't like you to say it.

Hope the remainder of your week improves!!
