If you know me at know that I have a slight obsession for Iced Tea. (God’s drink, I’m sure of it) I’m certain this addiction was given to me by my mother. (Thanks mom!)

There are a few things that can ruin Iced Tea. (Sweetener, sugar and lemon) I love the pure unsweetened and wonderful taste of Iced tea.

I’ve done extensive testing all over the world and in all different places to find the best made Ice dTea and here are my results.

The top five establishments for the best tasting Iced tea go to/#1 being the best: (drum roll please)

I have spent a lot of $1.94s for a medium iced teas from Wendy’s. LOVE IT!

*Off to get an Iced Tea…..


My mind, My will, and My emotions?

Last night I had enough of allowing my soul to be overrun with movies I’ve seen, books I’ve been reading, Christmas gifts, yadda yadda yadda. Sometimes I allow my surroundings and things going on in my life to dictate the way I feel and what I’m thinking about. When your soul is being taken over by things of this world, the things of God grow strangely dim. (didn’t that song say it the other way around?) I needed to be with my Savior, my best friend and so I went to the Truth source…The Word. I was reading and I stumbled upon a verse in Psalm 69:18a. David said it perfectly. “Draw near to my soul, and redeem it.” I began writing a song in my head that says: Draw near to my soul, and take back what is YOURS.” I get so caught up sometimes that I forget the reason I live is because of Jesus. My mind, will and emotions (soul) survive on stuff that is way less satisfying.

God, as far as I’m concerned draw near to my soul and make it YOUR mind, YOUR will and YOUR emotions in me.

1) Drive around and look at Christmas lights (especially downtown Denver)

2) Read “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” (one of my fave books!)

3)Watch Home Alone and Home Alone 2 (laugh until my guts hurt!)

4)Sing, “O, Holy Night” at the top of my lungsĀ A LOT. (my favorite Christmas song.)

5)Act out the Christmas story with Hunter a gazillion times. (He told someone he had no idea it was Jesus’ Birthday..he knows better now;))

6)Mint Hot Chocolate. (even with THAT many calories!!)


Merry Christmas!

Remember Jesus. Remember why.
