As in very very random…..
First my nephew,  Sweet William won the contest! Is he not the cutest?Will won
thanks to all of my blog friends that voted. 
Next I finally (though I have been trying for six weeks to find one) have an IPAD 2100_4447
So please send me every tip you have….I have had it a week and have not even opened the box. I am hoping Parker will have time to help me get it set up tomorrow.  Do any of you write posts using it?

Jack went for a check up and everything was perfect and the doctor does not even want to see him until late OCT….that’s almost 6 months from now and will be a year from the stroke.

I am pulling for Scotty on American Idol (as voting on every device I can) and starting to have withdrawals since I know the season is ending.  
This has been a good one…and never dreamed I would like Steven Tyler and J Lo so much.  If you have not seen this video, I loved it….Josh Turner surprising Scotty on his home town visit.
And on DWTS, I am pulling for Kym and Hines.

I think Arnold is a …well I won't say what I think he is…he is a member of the John Edwards “make me sick” club. 

I saw this Flame On on Kelly’s blog.
When you have 30 minutes it is WELL WORTH your time to WATCH.
You have to register and then just hit WATCH.  Once I started I couldn’t stop. 
I had heard the story but watching this was powerful. This has been my greatest fear in life.
One phone call can change everything.

This is a subject that I have wrestled with a lot recently.
I have a dear and young friend, as in very young just diagnosed with breast cancer, a week later a double mastectomy and now decisions. 

Then a friend of almost 40 years whose husband is having cancer surgery this Thursday, and on and on.  I am sure you have your own list. 

Then if you are a news junky like me and listen or read all the do’s and don’ts (that change by the day) to help you stay well….well it is overwhelming and makes you want to just eat whatever.  And if you took every supplement that Dr. Oz recommends (and I like him) you would spend your day taking pills.
Maybe it’s just me.  Does anyone else feel this way? 

NEWS BREAK….Terri and I are back walking.  We have made two days in a row doing almost 4 miles each day.  I so wish I loved exercise…I DON’T!!!

Not sure if I mentioned it but I loved Tyler Perrys new movie Jump the Broom, but then I love anything he does. 

Hopefully starting Thursday I am going to link up and sell the famous card box, except its going to be in a special mailer to cut the cost and it will be listed on Kristen's Creations..It’s the best gift to have on hand and one that everyone can use.  I am working to make it very affordable. 

We won’t be discussing Trump for PRESIDENT…I have to say his speech announcing it, made me laugh..enough said.

Just for a laugh….this is Jack checking out Easter eggs, deciding if they have the kind of candy he wanted…as in he rejected eggs. I have never heard of a three year old that did not want every egg he found. 

Also a special prayer request…Not sure of the date yet, but Austin is having heart surgery in Little Rock in early summer.  It is something they have known about since birth, but still very scary to have your boy having heart surgery.

If you are still with me you are worn out. So to thank you for hanging in there….I am giving away 2 books….another copy of Pioneer Woman…this is a GOOD READ!

  and also a copy of this fun book


How’s that for a thank you for reading a LOT of RANDOM!
Regardless of how you feel about Oprah, I have to admit I will miss her. (a tad more random)

FOR the last piece of Random, I am feeling like the Mouse is missing me…and want to start planning a trip. 

As always, all you have to do is leave a comment and you are eligible for both books.  I will get Parker to draw Sunday night.

Congrats to dear wee William.
I have not much idea what iPads do.. must check it out.
I don't mind who wins American Idol, they are all fantastic!
I too think Steve and Jen are neat.

Farming On Faith said...

I so enjoyed your random thoughts.

I am with you on Scotty. I am more than certain I am with you on Arnold~ what an idiot. Who would cheat on Maria?

And the thought of Trump~ makes me laugh too.
You are too~funny.
Have a wonderful day!

I don't have the Ipad2...have the original and I absolutely love it, particularly because I travel alot. I tend not to write posts on mine because it has to be done in edit mode and all the symbols that get inserted make me bonkers. Often I rough draft a post and I don't mind just tweaking but I still try to do my main writing on my bigger Mac. My favorite apps are Kindle and Words with Friends-totally addicting if you like scrabble type gaames!!


Karen said...

Hey Teresa,, great random post and love the pictures...have a blessed day

-stephanie- said...

I agree with a lot of your random. Especially the fact that you have very cute grandchildren. Love the sweet blond curls.

Lauri said...

I like all your random post. I will keep your son in my prayers, & you also.
Thanks for the givaway.

Vicki said...

I enjoyed your random post, Teresa! Sometimes it's nice to just have a random chat with a friend. I would like to be considered for your giveaway. I've heard so much about the Pioneer Woman book, but haven't picked it up yet. I have 10 books at my bedside waiting to be read... might as well add another! Enjoy your day.

Gram said...

I love the Easter Egg photo - they do develop their tastes early!

Life Happens said...

Lots of 'randomness' going on in your life. LOL. I hope you enjoy the new ipad.

Would love to read either book!

Life Happens said...

Not sure if my last comment posted :(

Lynn said...

Teresa I so agree with you about the healthy eating thing. It changes so much who can keep up and if we ate all the supplements we are told we need we be popping pills all day long. I wonder do they think we can beat death if we just follow all the rules? How many of us know a younger, slim, healthy person who just drops dead for one reason or another. OK off my soapbox now:-) I love your random, and always read your posts to the end!!

Doris said...

I hate to exercise too...wish I didn't. But I am eating healthier more than ever so I hope that counts for something!

I don't watch Oprah much but will miss the show...Thank God we will not need to be 'Trumped' to death this year!

So happy to hear that your hubby is doing so well!

Have a great day!

fourkidsmom said...

So glad you husband is doing so well. Praying for little Austin. Keep us updated.


fourkidsmom said...

Theresa said...

Well, I read EVERY SINGLE WORD:) AND that is A YUMMY giveaway! I love reading your posts, random is OK! Sometimes we just have lots to share! I will pray be praying for or Austin! BIG hugs and a thankful heart!

Kat aka Beachkat said...

What a fun packed post! Love it!

Congrats to Sweet William for winning. I voted. He is adorable.

I'm hoping Hines and Kim win too.

I saw the video of Scotty...he's cute and should win. Fingers crossed.

You are going to LOVE your iPad. I use mine every day. You can blog from it, but it's harder so I'd rather use my computer.

Good for you for walking. I love my treadmill and I try to walk every single day.


Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Congratulations to your sweet William :o) And enjoyed reading your random post...thank you for also linking that clip of Scotty's hometown concert... I love his voice and also Josh Turner has been my favorite! So twice as nice :o) And good news on your hubby's good checkups.

Blessings & Aloha!
Stop by if you are able...but I know you are keeping busy! Was recently asked to be a sponsor for fundraising for another's Relay for Life auctions this coming week...Praise the Lord for the many supporters of cancer awareness and research!

Nezzy said...

Although I'd love to win the lazy days book, don't enter me since I have already been a winner an won Ree's book, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. It was great BTW!

My prayers are with Austin sweetie. Please keep us updated on his progress. I hope to hear a praise report from ya soon.

Congratulations to Sweet William. His is a cutie and a half!

God bless ya sweetie and have a marvelous day! :o)

Joan Davis said...

My prayers go out to Austin and your family! I know this is a difficult time...I truly do! My daughter had open heart surgery last summer (she is only 23). It was scary, but God taught us to truly trust Him through the process. She is doing well now and my prayer is that Austin will also come through better and stronger than ever!

Blessings to you!

Linda said...

Soooo wonderful that Jack got a great check up! Rejoicing with you girlfriend!

Praying for Austin. Hope all goes well with the heart surgery this summer. I am sure you will keep us posted so the prayers can continue for that handsome boy!

Loved your random post. I agree with your remarks.

Thanks for your comment and Birthday wishes for my daughter. I had her when I was 17 and she turned 44 today. She has been a great blessing to my life!

I wish I could go see the mouse too. It is such a fun place....and we haven't been for a couple of years now.

Ashley said...

At our church egg hunt Emma (my 3 1/2 year old) picked up eggs, looked inside, and threw them back on the ground if she didn't care for the candy inside. HOW EMBARRASSING! I'm glad to see she's not the only three year old who rejects eggs, haha!

Mammy said...

Loved this random post. May do one myself as I am experiencing a lot of random myself lately. I can say I pretty much agree with your opinions--especially the Arnold opinion. What a sad situation. Blessings to you and yours. Hooray for Jack and his good report!

I love the randomness of your post. An I-pad is the next thing on my purchase list! I will be praying for your sweet Austin. I would love to be considered for your giveaway!

Sweet William is adorable. Congrats on the new iPad2. I spent one hour voting for Scotty on line last week. This week I better do it for the whole 2 hours.
I do want him to win. It's been a great season!
