The result: This new pair of black stilettos. I know that Jared and Makenna will both make fun of me and call them my, "Witches' Shoes," but I love them! There are few things that make my heart sing like a pair of really high heeled shoes. I fully realize that I will someday break my ankle or worse because of them, but until then.....

I've heard the story countless times, but it never fails to leave me choked up. There are many stories of heroism, suffering, and sacrifice, but this one is particularly meaningful to me. Maybe it's the fact that I hate cold water with a passion and can't imagine voluntarily crossing an icy river over and over. Or maybe it's the fact that the boys were only eighteen and ultimately sacrificed their lives. Whatever the reason, this story holds a special place in my heart. I hope that I can someday hear this account and know of a surety that in their place, I would do the same thing.

Recipe Three: Creamy Swordfish on Noodles: I'd only eaten swordfish a couple of times, but I was hooked from the first bite. Yum yum yummy!!! Unfortunately, my budget doesn't enjoy swordfish nearly as much as my taste buds do. I simply couldn't bring myself to spend $18 for a bag of frozen swordfish, so I bought frozen chicken instead. It was still really good though!! Unfortunately, my family didn't agree, so I probably won't be making it again. :-(

Sending out a big, "Thank You!" to Boden USA ( A clothing company based in Great Britain) for giving me a good chuckle with their men's Spring fashion lineup. Check out some of the highlights-
Blue and White Floral print shirt. This also comes in three other pretty versions. My favorite is a pink and blue flowered pattern.
Don't you just love these floral cargo shorts?
This shirt is also quite lovely!!

I love this movie! It's based on the life of William Wilberforce, an anti-slavery pioneer. It amazes me that one man could accomplish so much and help so many people. His progress was typically slow and unfruitful, yet he persevered in his fight against slave trading. And after a long, difficult struggle he was able to change the world and save his fellow men from bondage. How many lives did he save? How much pain did he alleviate? I'll probably never know, but I'm grateful that he possessed the courage and determination to stand up and fight for his convictions.

So, the time has come for me to move on with my life and find a new tee-shirt supplier. So far I have tried two tees.
No. 1. THE HALF SLEEVE from DOWNEAST BASICS
Pros: Nice cut, long,comes in many colors, relatively inexpensive $14
Cons: Way too flimsy
No 2. CAP SLEEVE from THE MODBOD
Pros: Love the gorgeous turquoise color, soft, long
Cons: Definitely made to be worn UNDER a shirt.
