It’s definitely spring in Oklahoma! Unfortunately, I live in the area known as Tornado Alley. Every March-September, whenever there is a storm predicted, we all know to be prepared for severe weather. So far this season, there has been very little severe weather. That all changed last night when these lovely little things passed through.

I wish I was fluent in French!
I’m hoping that most of you have heard about the devastating flooding in Nashville. From the pictures I’ve seen, it is looking scarily like Hurricane Katrina pictures. For some reason, this is not getting much national coverage! This is unacceptable!
Beth has done a fantastic job keeping her followers updated on what is happening, but now, the rest of the country needs to know what is going on! We need to use what we have to spread the word, whether that be blogging, facebook, twitter, or anything else.
The American Red Cross has been taking donations to help flood vicitms. You can text ‘REDCROSS’ to 90999 to donate $10 toward flood relief. You can also go to their website for other ways to help.
I looove CDs! With digital media becoming so popular, I’m sure that before too long, CDs will be a thing of the past, and I hate it!! I love music, and I love being able to actually hold something. New Music Tuesdays are a highlight of my week! I love looking through the CD booklet and reading who wrote the songs and the artist’s thank-yous. The artists spend so much time working on a new album, and I enjoy being able to touch it!
2. Cookie Lee & Premier Jewelry
I love fun jewelry, and it is definitely one of my weaknesses! My old roommate sells Cookie Lee jewelry, and having it in our apartment was so dangerous! But, she always had jewelry in stock, so I got to play with it! My coworker Tracy sells Premier jewelry, so I get to play with her’s too!

Now, a little bit of Monday randomness…I thought I had more to write about, but now that I’m sitting at my computer, I’m not sure that I have much to say!
I can already tell that it’s going to be a long week! I had a family group conference at DHS with one of my foster families this morning. I went into it expecting it to last around an hour. 2 1/2 hours later, I FINALLY got to leave. I got nothing accomplished in the office, so I spent the afternoon playing catch-up. I’m exhausted!
I’m so sad about the Nashville flooding! The pictures are so devastating. There are so many people who have lost everything they have, and some that have lost their lives. Be sure to keep these people in your prayers!
This Friday is my agency’s 1st Annual Tot Trot! It is a 5K run and 1 mile walk, and all of the proceeds go toward our adoption services, maternity home, and foster care program. We’re really excited about this new event, but a little nervous too! Plus, the weather is predicted to be rainy and around 60 degrees. Not exactly outdoor weather.
One last little thing. Anyone watching Dancing with the Stars? I’m totally loving Erin & Maks! I think Erin is so adorable and Maks is hot! They are so cute together, and Maks seems like a completely different person. So sweet!
Hope you’re all have had a great Monday!
I have watched American Idol since Kelly Clarkson was picked as the very first Idol. Season 1 remains my favorite season.
I had such a huge crush on him that I almost felt bad for voting for Kelly instead! Such a cutie!
A few more of my favorites…
Season 4-My other favorite season!
