Weekly Words To Inspire

So it's the last day in October... and we've already had our first snowfall. Awesome would not be the word I would use to describe this. However, how proud of you of them Stillers?!?! Loved the game yesterday.  Have a great Halloween everyone! I'll be leaving for Houston on Thursday returning Tuesday.. I cannot wait. I'll get to experience some 70 and 80 degree weather.... and it won't be snowing! Yyyayy!!!! Have a great week!

Fantastic Friday

Last night I was able to spend a couple of hours with my cousin's new son.  It was such a nice evening. Sometimes I forget how little people are when their journey of life begins.  He was such a good baby, didn't cry once while I was there, ate like a champ.. and just laid calmly in my arms.  I am so happy that both him and my cousin are doing well. He's a healthy little guy and growing.  I'm excited to be able to witness another life from the start.  Sometimes, life is really amazing.

Also, I found this on Pinterest this morning. (Boy do I love Pinterest...)

I firmly believe after the past month... my time is finally right.

Have a great weekend. Have a safe Halloween weekend.
November is right around the corner! And yes, the Christmas music has already commenced!

Good Morning!!! What a Monday! The Steelers looked good yesterday (for the most part). Other than being a tiiiiiinny bit cold, the weekend was perfect.  The leaves are changing and the scenery is just amazing. This is by far my favorite season, as long as I'm not outside all day long. Enjoy the last full week of October... Can you believe that?!

Happy Monday!!!!!

I hope the words find you well today. I’m so excited to announce that my cousin had her baby yesterday and everyone is doing well. So in honor of Gage Andrew, the words will be on a topic not normally discussed, the birth of a child! Congrats Jess!!!!!!

Have an absolutely amazing week. October is halfway over!

“Birth is the sudden opening of a window, through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect. For what has happened? A miracle. You have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything.”
William MacNeile Dixon quotes

“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

"Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body."
Elizabeth Stone

"When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice."

"Birth is not only about making babies. It's about making mothers strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and believe in their inner strength"

'To Go Where No One Has Gone Before...'

I can’t believe. After about 2 months I finally completed the entire season of Star Trek The Next Generation. I remember the days when I used to watch it with my sister, not because I liked the show, but because my big sister did. So when it appeared on Netflix, I figured I’d pull another ‘Roseanne’ and watch the whole series. I did and it was totally worth it.

I’m having a love hate relationship with Netflix at the moment. I think what they have done the past few months is horrible. I always thought Netflix was the one good company left, it was a good price, customer service was good. For me, it was worth the 10 bucks a month. Then they started going all crazy. Now that it’s all over, taking a step back, I’m not going to drop Netflix. I have thought about it, but honestly, I hate Comcast (my current cable provider) way more than I could ever hate Netflix.

Companies make mistakes, I’m sure in the offices the ideas were great… In reality, it made no sense at all. So let’s get over it. I’m just more curious about how Netflix streaming will be affected… are they going to start releasing new movies? Right now, that is the downfall for the streaming.

I love Netflix for the series that they are putting on Instant. A few years ago I dropped my cable to as basic as it could be because I was tired of paying a ton of money to watch Law and Order. That’s pretty much all I watched, the USA channel. I also use Hulu to watch the majority of the recent shows. So why do I need cable? To watch the Pens and Steelers. Back to why I love Netflix. I have been able to watch a variety of TV shows and not know the ending to them within 3 minutes of watching the episode. I like relieving my childhood. I’ve been able to watch Doogie Houser, Alf, Quantum Leap, and the original Saturday Night Live’s. To me, it’s worth the 10 bucks a month.

So now that Star Trek is over, what am I going to do? Well, they actually put ALL the Star Treks on instant… and a few weeks ago when I was hanging out with my sister she kind of got me into Battlestar Galactica. But for now, I think I’m going to take a break from the Syfy. For in my queue I have the series for.. wait for it… Mad Men, Wings, and totally my favorite The Wonder Years. So needless to say, I’ll be busy for a while.

At least these are reruns worth paying to watch!

Take it easy.

Another week has come and gone. I can't say that with tempatures in the high 70's low 80's it's feeling much like fall. However, I will never complain about getting a nice little tan from sitting in the sun watching my Mounties play (and win)! It was good to finally watch the Steelers of ol' play yesterday... and I can't forget the Pens... who played in the West Coast and still came home with 5 points. Not bad at all.
Have a fantastic week!
