    I am impressed with Jimmy Wayne!  I'm a bleeding heart for good causes and Jimmy is raising awareness to the plight of our nation's homeless teens.  He's walking to Phoenix Arizona on his "Meet Me Halfway" campaign.  What a man!  He's doing a good job for a good cause!  I have to LOL though, it reminds me of Forest Gump when he just starts running and everyone follows.  jimmy wayne

  • Jacob coloring the snow

    Posted by Jessie B Hawkins

    When the weather warmed up enough to stand being outside for 20 minutes I convinced my son to go outside and color the snow.  We filled water bottles with green food coloring and went outside to have some fun.  It was wonderful and he loved it.  After we got back inside we made some minty chocolate milk with the help of peppermint extract.  Truly a great day!Jacob coloring the snow

    Tim McGraw is at it again!  Word on the street is (Tennessean.com) that Tim began filming a new project today with Gwyneth Paltrow in Nashville.  The new movie is "Love Don't Let Me Down"  Tim plays the husband-manager of a fallen country singer played by Gwyneth Paltrow.  A handsome singer-songwriter thinks he can get Gwyneth back on top of the charts with a tour and along comes a beauty queen...love triangles ensue I'm sure.   Tim McGraw
  • People Choice Awards Twilight

    Vampires ruled at the Peoples choice awards.  The Twilight Saga (I'm a huge fan of the book series and I was impressed by New Moon) picked up four trophies for Favorite movie, Fav Franchise, fav on-screen team and fav breakout male actor (Taylor Launter). 

    I wonder if the Taylors were wishning they were still together at the awards show...Taylor Swift, rumored to have dated Taylor Lautner also did well at the People's Choice Awards...she is unstoppable!Twilight

  • Jacob and trains

    Posted by Jessie B Hawkins

    trainsMy son will be turning 3 this month and forever in a day he was in love with spider-man.  Right after Christmas I found him spider-man boots, toys, clothes, a spider-man birthday candle, party plates and decorations.  Now he likes Thomas the Tank Engine.  Oh bother!  I'm glad he likes the trains, I really am, especially since they are more fun to play with than a spider-man guy in a spider car and the movies are less aggressive than the animated spider-man tv series I found...but I am still throwing him a spider-man birthday party dang it!

    Danny Cahill Can you imagine how Danny Cahill must feel after losing 239 pounds!  I'd be happy to lose 10...and keep it off!  Danny was, I believe season 8's Biggest Loser on the hit reality show.  He doesn't even look like the same person!  I picked up a DVD workout from the Biggest Loser and I must say...I like it, now if I would only DO it!

  • Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler

    Carrie Underwood

    Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler have a few things in common...they look nearly perfect.  Great Googly Moogly.  They both are vegetarians, they both avoid junk and fast foods and they have personal trainers.  Could the key to a perfect body be not eating meat?  I'm not sure I could do it!  I love my big juicy burgers, medium steaks and the occasional meat lovers pizza.  I guess I'll start trying to perfect my body with a little exercise and just say no to junk and fast food and see if I look anything close to that in 6 months!  :  )  Wish me luck

  • The Blind Side

    Posted by Jessie B Hawkins

    After watching the movie the Blind Side starring Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw and Quinton Aaron I am forever a fan of Michael Oher currently of the Baltimore Ravens. That movie is so inspirational about a family that did what most of us probably would think about doing but be to afraid to do.  They took in a stranger, a boy from a bad background by no fault of his own.  They took him in, made him part of the family and as a result the Baltimore Ravens have one heck of a smart, kind, Christian offensive lineman!  A recent interview of Michael confirmed the movie pretty much sticks to how things went down for him minus the fact that in the movie they portray Michael as not knowing how to play football.  What a great story...what a great movie.  Tim McGraw does a great job in the movie...I'm impressed!  Actors Quinton Aaron and Sandra Bullock in Blind Side
