Mom Spot: Inspiration in the Most Unlikely Places

I love to watch movies, but I can get stuck in a rut. I'm a big fan of romantic comedy, but I also love a great story. Since I am a self-proclaimed foodie, I decided that Julie and Julia would be a good pick for a Saturday night without my husband. I had no idea how right I was (coincidentally, I think my husband would have more than tolerated it). I laughed out-loud and got teary-eyed more than once. I finished the move feeling absolutely inspired (and not just because I'm a blogger) and genuinely motivated to do and be something better than I am right now. Who would have thought?

It was an unlikely place to find inspiration, but there it was. The movie was a little blessing from Hollywood. It reminded me that we all have a time and a place. That it is one of life's greatest joys to have a husband who loves and supports you. That some of life's greatest accomplishments may take much longer than you expected and sometimes you are not expecting then at all. When you live a life of passion and purpose, anything is possible!

Haven't seen this movie yet? Do it tonight! Is there a movie that inspired you? Please tell us!

Frisco's Wassail Days

Friends, 
I'm so excited to bring you the details of this family event in Frisco, Colorado! Nothing says Christmas like getting up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains and celebrating the holidays nestled in a cozy town with your closest friends and family. Fresh snow. Lighted trees. Sleigh rides. Visits with Santa.
And it all starts with the Santa Dash for Cash - a 1K "fun run" in which all participants must wear Santa gear! The run is TOMORROW and when you register at www.wassaildays.com you will receive a Frisco Santa shirt, a Santa hat and at the end of the run you will receive a stocking full of goodies including Wassail Cash (the official currency of Wassail Days that can be used at local restaurants and retailers) and a FREE pass for a ½ hour of tubing at the Frisco Adventure Park Tubing Hill.

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you.16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my

C'est la Vie: The Men In Our Lives Part 3

Today's suggestions really hit two sides of the same coin. I was thinking about gifts for the "do it yourself" dad. If you're married to him (or lived with a dad like this growing up), you know what I mean. He loves a project whether it's in the house, out in the yard, or in the garage (ie. cars).

But that got me thinking, sometimes there is nothing better than a "do it yourself" gift. Something straight from the heart and made by little, loving hands. So, here are two lists: one for your man to "do" and the other for you and the kids to make. I think you'll find something that's a perfect fit!
