~ Whatever Wednesday ~

Today is "Whatever Wednesday"
That is my new segment....sounds official doesn't it??!! HA!

For Whatever Wednesday I first want to mention that you should scroll down to yesterday's post - there is a GIVEAWAY for just listing something on your bucket list!!

Today I want to talk about what this world needs.
It needs some people who give a hoot.  I found that there are more people in this world who feel entitled than those who help out.
I have a friend who's son is turning 9 and he wanted to give his $20 from communion to help his teachers who were taking a pay cut.
A friend of my daughter decided to collect food for puppies and kitties who didn't have food or "parents" for his 3rd birthday.
My daughter turns 3 tomorrow and for his birthday party this weekend she wanted to give teddy bears to kids that were "having a bad day". In other words we are going to be collecting and donating teddy bears to the sheriff's department for them to give to kids on calls that they respond to.  They told us this helps calm both the kids and the parents down.
How is it that kids under the age of 10 can understand how important some things are and we have adults who think they just deserve things??
Makes me sick I tell ya.
We had a garage sale this weekend and everything that was left over (5 truck loads still!!!) we took right down to the local thrift as all their profits go back to the Women's Shelter...they can used the money more than I can use the stuff.

Okay - I feel a little like I have preached - but it is Whatever Wednesday...I got it off my chest...
I challenge you to do something good today....or won't cost much if anything...

Bucket List

The Bucket List was a great movie - have you seen it? If not, you should!

My question today is there something that you want to do before you get old, die, TURN 30? (HAHA)
I have a couple books to read, movies to see, places to visit, things to do...
But what about you?
If you haven't guessed this week is a bit of reflection so I can get some projects built up to post! :)
One lucky person who gives me something from their "bucket list" will win a prize - An {ippity} stamp set - because if you didn't know it - I am selling {ippity}! 
As soon as my blog is up and running for it I will give you the address!

This is what you could win:

Isn't is gorgeous?  If is from the 09 Fall Collection - but I still love it - the bird is my favorite!

You can list more than one thing - but you will want to post it separately.
Got Twitter? Follow me (MissMollyDR) and tweet to me some more list items and you will get more chances!

Good luck ladies!

My Family

Aren't we cute?
This was the day that my husband passed EFMB - he is the bestest as it only has a 15% pass rate for the ENTIRE US Army!

Anyways - I have been doing some reflecting lately to find out what I really want, what is important, etc.
Yes - I decided that this December I will be starting a new chapter in my life as I will be hitting 30...I know this seems silly to be doing so early in life - but hey, we all look at things differently!
I have found that I had some childish things to get over, and I did. 
There are things I have wanted to do and haven't.
I want to get stuff done!

I decided yesterday to get things in gear for a a fresh start when I hit 30...
I cleaned out a lot of crap from my house that was still left over from the garage sale.  Which everything that was still left over from that was donated to a thrift store that benefits victims of domestic abuse - a cause dear to my heart since my aunt was killed by her husband almost 10 years ago.

I am so excited to set some goals to achieve and you will get to see that through my postings and creations!
See you all tomorrow as I have to go to work to support my hobby and I have to get a layout ready for the Thank You cards I have been asked to create!

This is kind of a random post for me....but hang in there - tomorrow will be more "normal".

P.S. - tomorrow I will have a surprise for you!

P.P.S. - head over to my friend Michelle:
She will make your mouth water - seriously!

Happy Birthday To You!

So I am forever falling in love with Close To My Heart papers!  I love how they come with solid colored cardstock in the package that matches everything in that pack!  I am learning...slowly but surely how to make things easier!
The corner punch and sentiment is Stampin' Up! but the papers are all Close To My Heart!
I put these two plus some others in a cute little silver tin and donated then to the Relay for Life auction that my company does....didn't bring byt $15 each, but hey - I figure they got a bargin!
