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.

Whilrwind Weekend and Weather

What a whirlwind weekend we had!  My Saturday started off with another Texas certification test.  I have been studying and studying for this test!  The test took 2 1/2 hours and it was HARD!  I barely knew how to spell my own name after the test!  I'm thankful it's over and praying I don't have to take that test ever again!

Somehow, I managed to find my suburban and drive myself to meet up with my family at a concert.  But, on the way, I remembered a coupon for Steinmart that expired that day.  So, I quickly found a parking spot and much to my delight found a new jacket.  Originally the jacket was $69 but with my coupon I got it for $7.  Woo hoo!  I was so excited. 

I met up with my family a few minutes later for a quick chicken sandwich and then on to the concert. We enjoyed praising the One who is so worthy of our praise and then grabbed some dessert with friends after the concert.  We headed home after dessert, where my pillow awaited.  I was exhausted and ready for some sleep.

Sunday morning, Mr. Incredible woke up sick, so the girls and I headed to Elevate, our children's ministry for 1st and 2nd graders, without my man.  We were blessed with 5 children this Sunday.  We taught them a new song about Jesus being the only way.  I love this new song and the children did too.  What a blessing to teach with my girls....love this!

We took Chili's to Go home for lunch, watched the Baylor Lady Bears beat A&M, just barely, and then took a wonderful nap.  And then... we registered our daughter in university dorm housing for next year.  {Sob!}

No, she still hasn't made her final decision, so she will have a dorm assignment at two different universities for now, but that's okay.  She is hoping to make her final decision in the next three weeks. 

Still in denial that Rachel will actually be going off to college in August, I somehow found the time to clean out my pantry and refrigerator~anything to keep the tears from falling at the realization.  Anyone want a can of tomatoes that expired in 2009??? Me, neither.  Where was that can hiding?  Anyway, my pantry feels so much better, better organized, and space to walk around which leaves this momma very happy.

Our temperatures this weekend were in the 70's.  It almost felt like spring was in the air.  But, guess what????  We are expecting a little glorious snow!  And I can hardly wait!!!!  I see you northerners rolling your eyes.  You have probably seen way more snow days than you care to count but snow is a rarity here and our dry land is begging for moisture.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed and wearing my snowflake pajamas tonight.  I hope we wake up in the morning to a fresh blanket of glorious snow. 


And this forecast leaves me giddy with excitement!

Great buy for you on that jacket!

I will wear my snowflake pajamas too. One snow day a year is fun :) I didn't say the word "SNOW" yet to Caleb, he was disappointed last time the weatherman was saying it and we didn't get any here. I wonder if it will be as bad as they say it's gonna be.

Praying for your sweet girl as she makes her important decision, I'm sure God will guide and help her. Going through a box this weekend I found my acceptance letter for ACU. Seems so long ago I was going through all of that.
Have a great week!

Goodness you were busy. I hope your hubby gets better soon and you all don't catch it.
Every time I clean out my pantry (which obviously isn't very often) I find expired cans. Like WAY expired. I do think they hide from us.
Okay, why am I sad that Rachel is leaving? I can only imagine what your Momma hormones are going through.
Give yourself a hug from me and eat a Hershey's kiss and call it a day.

Well you should be here in Michigan because they are predicting 12+ inches of the white, fluffy stuff by Wednesday morning.............I'd give anything for a 70 degree day right about now!
Enjoy your snow!

this northener is always ready for that glorious WHITE stuff, 'cause we're always hoping for a snow day! I know all about those tears, and the pain of letting a child go! you know its inevitable yet, the years just pass way too quickly, one day your facing their 6th grade year and the next its senior pictures, graduation, etc. Praying for you, my friend....
