Monday Musings


Hi, everyone! I just want to say how touched I was by everyone's comments on Friday. You don't know how much it means to me. I wasn't sure I wanted to discuss details of my life so much, but I know there are other women out there dealing with the same issues and I want them to know that they are not alone. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words, thoughts and prayers.

So, what did you do this weekend? We did a whole bunch of nothing other than eating and watching tv. It was too cold and rainy to really get much else done outside of the house. I guess I should have used my time more wisely instead of being a couch potato, but sometimes you just need a weekend of doing nothing!
I've got to hit the gym this week hard because I'll be in a swimsuit in a week. Yikes!!! It's now go time!

And remember about a month ago when Fred and I went to Oscar Night America benefitting the Ronald McDonald House? Well, we made it into one of the local Memphis magazies.

And I've recently discovered that at the bottom of most reciepts to retail stores, there is a survey you can take online to get a discount on your next purchase. Here's one from Victoria's Secret:Have you ever noticed this? Well, now you can shop and save! :)

Also, I'm looking for a few guest bloggers to blog for me while I'm away. Please email me at carolinesmithwick@gmail.com if you're interested. Thanks!

I need to hit the gym hard for the next two months because I'll be on a cruise at the end of May! Too bad my office has already put out the Easter candy.

I love that you were very open! It makes the blogging connection seem more real I think. Prayers are with you!... I'd love to guest blog, but what would I say? ha!

Look at you in a magazine! How cool is that! I've seen the survey in the reciepts, but I am too lazy to do them. I tried once and they take forever!

Have a great day!

I took last week off from working out as well. It's so hard to get back in once you have taken a day, much less a week off!

Y'all look so cute! :)

I wish I was going to be in a bathing suit next week. Not because I'm super excited about a bathing suit, but because I'm ready for a vacation! Hope y'all have a great time!

How awesome! That's so exciting that you made the Memphis magazine!

That is a GREAT picture of you two also, which is awesome because it would not be so awesome if they got an outtake and it was in the memphis magazine. you must be photogenic haha cuz i think 3 out of 4 pictures on my camera are immediately deleted, in other words, my odds would not have been good for this :-)
