Here's more singing video of our American Idol in training (Season 25)!
Translation: He's singing "Desert Song" by Hillsong:
I will bring praise,
No weapon formed against me shall remain.
I will rejoice,
I will declare,
God is my victory...
Mommy, I want to smell the candle.
Of course, that last line isn't part of the song but oh well. He helped me pick out a candle at Hobby Lobby by smelling EVERY single one in the store and I guess it caught his eye there towards the end.
Today, I made Ace his own CD for the car since he is always requesting one song or another that I inevitably don't have. Here's his playlist:
1. Hope Now (Addison Road)
2. What Do I Know of Holy (Addison Road)
3. So Small (Carrie Underwood)
4. Wheel of the World (Carrie Underwood)
5. Temporary Home (Carrie Underwood)
6. Mighty To Save (Hillsong)
7. Desert Song (Hillsong)
8. I Can Only Imagine (Mercy Me)
9. If You Want Me To (Ginny Owens)

Just a quick update on the N0-Fast-Food January resolution...
I think this will be a yearly tradition for me. I am honestly NOT missing my restaurants as much as I thought I would. (Probably because Jonathan and I are working so much, we are bound to the house most of the time anyway.) ONE month is not so difficult. Now, TWO months I think would be hard and Jonathan would probably mutiny.
I shouldn't call him out but I will say that I've resisted fast food even in the face of Jonathan's creative reasoning: that fast-food leftovers don't count (when he's ordered pizza) or that ice cream shakes aren't "food". I think he abandoned the fight earlier this month BUT I will give him LOTS of credit for not whining that I won't eat out at restaurants with him.
And I will confess a hardly-mentionable transgression by me, when Jonathan put a basket of fries and chicken fingers in my lap at Monster Jam...I ate three fries and a bite of the chicken fingers. I am not counting this because they were disgusting. Plus, I had a few mouthfuls of cotton candy and a handful of popcorn. Hey, I'm not invincible and hadn't eaten dinner.
If one mini-meal that was hardly enjoyed is all I fail with this entire month, I will consider it a success!

Bundled up and behaving...for now.
We were fairly close to the action which meant a lot of stairs...not so fun when Ace needed to go potty no less than 8 times. Our thighs were on fire.

I have now been informed that duvets come with the sort of ties in my last post...Now I've got to go check them out and see what they've done!!! Oh well.

I sewed the loops onto the SEAM (so it wouldn't show or interfere with the cover).

I am not making a New Year's resolution this year but I have made a resolution for the month of January: No fast food (including restaurants).
I'm putting it out there so that you can keep me accountable.
So far, I'm not craving my quarter-pounder with cheese and I've managed to resist french fries (brought home by my husband who claimed the month hadn't started yet...but it was Jan 2nd). Jonathan says he's going to do it too but go a little easier on him if you see him out - he doesn't have a choice for lunches and has allowed a cheat night for himself on the weekends.
My first tricky test will be Saturday. We're going to see Monster Jam and I've got to resist everything at the Stadium!!!
P.S. Not for weight loss purposes so don't ask me.
