Darla Stories – Bloggy Break Edition

Darla Stories – Bloggy Break Edition

OK, so y’all know I just kind of live with funny stuff happening.  It’s kind of  how I roll… But the other day, it wasn’t just me that was rolling. The girls and I stopped off at Costco to fill up with gas after a soccer game.  If you remember, my people (especially Brittany) are VERY afraid of bumble bees.  And bees sometimes hang out at soccer games and one apparently decided to come on home with us. We didn’t…

Psalm 73:28

Psalm 73:28

I’ve been wondering when I would start writing again.  And well … this is it … and this is why. Psalm 73:28. Let me explain … I asked y’all to pray about my trip to Midland (THANK YOU SO MUCH!) and at the same time asked y’all for some recipes (GREAT ideas from all of you!!! – my personal favorite was from one of my cousins suggesting I get a Chick Fil A tray since that’s kind of our “go…

It’s a paradox of sorts …

It’s a paradox of sorts …

Just so you know … planning on the blog coming back next week.  I cracked up today when I was laughing with one of the ministers at our church … and he stopped and said … “I’ll probably see this on “i-get-to”.  Made me think I should “get” back at it before too long. But that’s not the paradox. Oh no, not even close. Here’s the deal.  I’m travelling to Midland, TX Friday morning and will be speaking at a…

We interrupt this blog-y break …

We interrupt this blog-y break …

For a couple of reasons … mostly because it would be about seventeen ways of wrong to not share this CUTE recipe with you.   I’m still on a break BUT LET ME TELL YOU … some funny stuff has happened.  And I can’t wait to tell you about it.  One thing (my so far one day) break has taught me is that I LOVE this blog and the people that read it.  I have received some encouragement and am…

Blog is going black …

Blog is going black …

Or at least gray. For over a year I’ve been writing on this blog.  Loved every second of it.  I’ve met some really nice people through blogging and gotten to know some friends/family a whole lot better.  I’ve had a place to record my thoughts and my life.  It was a journal of sorts – except I never had to look for a pen.  Now I’m looking for a bit of a blog-y break.  Many reasons, not the least of…

Football fever ….

Football fever ….

My friend Jennifer has a football family.  She has four boys and all four of them love to play football.  One year her Christmas card picture had all four boys in Texas A and M football jerseys complete with the black sun deflecting strip under their eyes.  It was very cute. Jennifer told me how fun it was to watch the boys play and what a good time they had out on the gridiron.   There was just one thing she…

This is from Sophie…

This is from Sophie…

Some of you may know her as Boomama. She is not me.   She sometimes writes for Lifeway and wrote the following blog to recap some of her experience at Living Proof Live in Memphis last weekend with Beth Moore.  (BTW, it is one of my 2010 goals to go to a Living Proof Live event … because it’s good to have goals you know).Anyway … I could tell you what she wrote, but it’s better just coming straight from…

It kind of felt like 1998 ….

Someone recently asked me what the significance of 1999 was in my email address (baerg1999@aol.com).  I wish there was a better story to tell but the truth is, 1999 is the year we got the internet in our home.  In fact, Brittany had just been born and we got our first computer that we could hook up to the internet.   Thinking I’d just “try this internet thing out”, I, oh so cleverly, made my email address my last name and…

PLEASE NOTE!!!

PLEASE NOTE!!!

I am not Bakerella.  I cannot bake like Bakerella.  I can’t take pictures like Bakerella.   To be honest, I’m a Kraft macaroni and cheese kind of girl. And I just want to clear up any misconceptions that you might have about Monday’s post.  That was Bakerella.  You can go to her site at www.bakerella.com.  I have a link on the pumpkin bites post, but it’s not in a different color and so I don’t think it’s very noticeable. And I…

She is seriously bossy …

She is seriously bossy …

I read this article today and could not help but laugh.  Mostly because I could totally relate to the poor guy who almost drove off the cliff.   In what was perhaps THE funniest moment of our Italy trip this summer, our friend (and sidekick comic) Matthew was driving in the dark home from one of our daytrips.  We were following the GPS directions and were quite sure the lady announcing the directions was leading us off the top of a…
