It affects all aspects of my life. I found myself wanting to look things up, but couldn't, since the computer has been in the shop. I send out and also read lots of emails each day and was not able to do that. Not to mention, I couldn't read any of your wonderful blogs and leave comments. It will take me a long time to go back and read past blogs to see what I have missed.
Hopefully I am back up and running and can do some more posting soon. I am keeping 2 precious little girls this weekend while their parents are in the Caribbean. The grandparents will take over late on Sunday afternoon. My youngest is finishing up school projects and exams and will be home on May 2nd.
My oldest is with friends in Charleston this weekend. I have been babysitting her little dog, Chi Chi.
Have a wonderful weekend. I hope all of you are having beautiful weather, like we are having here in NC!
Love & blessings,

Hey everybody, I finally got all my concert pictures together and I have them loaded in a weird order. Just overlook me again. LOL! I like to keep you on your toes when reading my blog. I have learned how to put more than 5 pictures on a post at one time, but I got them out of order. I need to move on with my day, so this is how they will stay. This first picture is of Christy Nockels of Watermark. She was amazing! Her voice is so beautiful and she sang a brand new song that she had written.
Here is a picture of the stage with the group singing together during the finale. Israel Houghton and New Breed opened up the concert and they were amazing too. I wasn't familiar with Israel, but all the songs he sang are ones that you sing in your churches that have praise and worship music. Israel was wonderful and his testimony brought chill bumps to your arms. His mother chose not to abort him and he became such a wonderful man of God! What a plan God had for his life.
Here is my sweet Adelaide with Chris. We had actually meet Chris 4 years ago, but it was equally as exciting meeting him again. He is so adorable in person and so kind and friendly. He makes you feel so welcome when he greets you. Thanks Chris for a very memorable evening!!!
Here is my dear friend Sherian with Chris. Chris got started singing praise and worship music many years ago in the church where Sherian's brother-in-law works as a youth minister in Texas. Chris has remained friends with their families and he provided us with our tickets and the meet and greet passes. Thanks again Chris for your generosity!! We had such a wonderful time praising God with you!
Here is Chris seeing Sherian for the first time. He was so excited to see her and they talked just like old friends. Isn't Chris the cutest thing? He has such a sweet smile and he so loves the Lord!!

My home state team, the University of North Carolina, better known as the Tarheels, has advanced to the finals of the NCAA tournament against Michigan State. The game will be played in Detroit on Monday night. UNC is in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Needless to say, I am pulling for UNC to win!! I didn't attend UNC, but you always have to root for your home state team. I have lots of friends who went there, as well as my children's friends who go there now. One of my daughter's good friends went up for the tournament. I talked to her Dad today and he said that she was so excited. That is a trip of a lifetime for a college student!
My brother-in-law is a die hard Carolina fan, so I know he is on cloud nine hoping for a VICTORY on Monday night. Their dogs will be glad when this tournament is over. The dogs get so upset with all the yelling going on during basketball season. Larry, I hope they pull this one out for you!!!
I forgot to say, my husband is a big Duke fan.
Daniel, I know that you will be watching the game tomorrow night. I hope they win for you too!!! You're the man!

I love this white blouse that I found at our local Lilly store back in the winter. It is not Lilly, but I thought it was just so cute. The 3/4 length sleeves are so unusual and they have bows tied on the cuffs. You probably can't see in the picture, but there are tucks up around the neckline. This blouse was 75% off, so I got a real steal on it. Love those good bargains!!!
