Friday Randomness

So...Andrea, from Under Grace & Over Coffee, shares random bits of her life each Friday and since I rarely have an original idea of my own, I am playing along. Plus my picture is next to the word "random" in the dictionary. OK, so it's not...but it should be.

Here's a few bits from my world:

I have green toes. Bye-bye shades of plum, navy, and black...it's almost Spring. It's almost St. Patrick's Day. I need green "Lily's Pad" toenails. I now have them. Thank you, Piggy Polish!




Since it's still a tad chilly for baring my Springy toes, I am embracing color with my new Chuck Taylors, in Raspberry and Light Blue. I call it Turquoise, though...'cause that sounds fancier and I am all about the fancy. Chucks instantly up the ante on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt...it's simple fashion, y'all! Chucks also make me feel young. Yes, I am 34...and I'll be sporting my Converse even when I'm 64. And singing The Beatles. (Get it??? Kelly will get it. Happy 34th birthday-a-day-early, Kelly!)



I must thank Kristen, as always, for introducing me to goodreads. It's a book lover's paradise! I made an analogy for it: goodreads is to books what Sephora is to cosmetics. Or, in simple terms, I love it!

Saturday night I will be squealing like a nine year old, unabashedly. Because we're going to see Watchmen (and dragging our friends, Bill & Kim, with us!) and I have waited many, many years for this epic, graphic novel to premiere on the big screen. My wait is over. I swear, this weekend should be a 3-day holiday as far as Watchmen is concerned. Seriously. Y'all know me and my Sci-Fi.



Are you kidding me? Yes, that's Smashing Pumpkins' operatic "The Beginning is the End is the Beginning" playing in the trailer. Brilliant! Genius! Amazing! Oh, but it makes me so very happy.


Finally...my sweet Caroline has taken to asking, "Have we got enough?" She questions this while we load groceries in the car, when picking up her toys, while feeding Lewis, and when I cut the cornbread I've made for supper. "Mommy, do we have enough?" I tell her, "Yes. We have Jesus. We have each other. We have more than enough." Because it's the truest thing I'll ever impart to these children of mine.



"More than all I want, more than all I need, You are more than enough for me"--Chris Tomlin


Happy weekend, y'all!

Uh huh. We have more than enough, indeed.
And I am telling you, I wear my pink converse low tops on a near daily basis.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

That last part gave me chills! So very true.

My Front Porch said...

Love your shoes, love how you respond to Caroline and love you!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Sweet randomness!!! Love love love the more than we need goodness. I keep reminding myself of the same each day.

And Watchmen looks awesome. So dramatic and visually powerful. This will be a date night movie for hubs and I. Have a great weekend!!!

Kelly said...

thanks for the birthday greetings, bottle of wine. i knew i could count on you to remember how old i am.

CaraBee said...

I am so ready to get my pigs to the salon for a pedi, but I'm not sure what I think about green toenails. Although in the spirit of St. Paddy's day, I might be persuaded.

I love, love, love my chucks! They work their comfy, cool way into my wardrobe just about every day.

My husband keeps telling me to get on Goodreads. I haven't yet because my to-read list is so long right now that I can't even begin to start looking for new stuff, but it's something I think about from time to time.

Caroline is about as sweet as they come! More than enough, indeed.

Amy said...

Happy Weekend to you. I like the toes, mine are still black, but I have broken out my flip flops. This is how I declare Spring. They are not going anywhere now. No matter what! :)
I like your quote at the end. I can always count on you for a nice quote.

heathersister said...

Sweet Caroline.

Love the shoes.

I miss Heather.

This is my random comment.

Jackie said...

Oh, your shoes are so cute. Nice choices :)
Enjoy reading your randomness and non-randomness.

Lula! said...

Kelly got it! I knew she would.
Yaaaaaay, Kelly!!!

Sissy said...

My hubbie and a friend are going to see Watchmen tonight, but they said it would be too violent for me. I think they just wanted it all to themselves. I know I will see it eventually!

Amy said...

I am so ready for flip flop season again, and that piggy polish would look lovely on my piggies :)

Bekah said...

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

Love. It. All.

Goodreads is fab - I am surprised you weren't on before!

Have a great weekend!

sassy stephanie said...

I'm so loving your convo with Caroline. I need to work more on the random moments that could be used to further their understanding of God's love.

Britt said...

Enough .. sadly, it seems to be a lost concept today. I pray that my girls grow up to know the happiness that can come from a life with just enough.

And Goodreads .. my new obsession. I spend too much of my free time, browsing around and adding books to my "read it" list. Love it!

Valarie Lea said...

Love me some Chucks :)

Caroline is just precious :)

Mariah said...

Dude- I have converse in low top and high top and in 5 different colors. I'll be sporting those when I'm a granny for sure

Andrea said...

Hey, just stopping by from SITS. I LOVE goodreads--nice analogy to Sephora. :oD

Lauren said...

Lula Love,

Can I call you that? If not, too bad. Anyway...I am in love with the shoes. Love both colors. Love them. With love,

Be my friend on goodreads! Please?!

I love the randomness.

Tony C said...

Bravo!! That's the best parenting advice/line I've heard in quite some time (and I love the Tomlin line).

Those Chucks are sweeeeet...

Best of weekends to you and yours!

themoonisdown said...

you are a fanboys dream lu!

totally been thinking a lot on the lines of "more than enough" had a convo with guyfriend yesterday about how it's all "just stuff" and doesn't really matter in the end.

oh and make those kids stop being so damn cute. geez. :D

Becky said...

I love that picture of your baby at the end:)

Andrea said...

Yay - I'm so glad you played along! I got Mr Linky fixed if you feel like linking up!

That is the BEST answer for your daughter's question ever - thanks for the reminder!

And yes, goodreads does indeed rock.

The Lucky Mrs. T said...

I love your blue CT's!

Decieded to rock some hot pink toes this weekend. Ready for Spring!

Over from SITS.

Swirl Girl said...

out of the mouths of babes - Sweet Caroline!

Eudae-Mamia said...

"Have we got enough?"

Oh how I love sweet innocence.

Tracey said...

You are soooo right!! We do have more than enough!!

Love the green....it's 80 something degrees here sooo maybe, just maybe, I will paint my toes green and sport my flip flops in YOUR honor!! since the weather prevents it for you!

Hugs!
Tracey

Brandy said...

SS wanted to see Watchmen but his gf is only 16 so it's a no go for them.

I'm wearing a St. Paddy's day shirt right now...and it's naughty.

Have a great weekend!

Marrdy said...

you arem uch wiser than your 34 years. (You did say you were 34 right?) You have a great weekend too!

Elena said...

Okay WHAT?! You're on Goodreads and not my friend?? I've been saying over and over, "I sure wish Lula (and Kat) would join Goodreads." Seriously, I came over here today to see if I could find the latest book you'd recommended.

And I LOVE you green toes and pink shoes. Very spring.

Shannon said...

I need a pedi. But I need to give myself a pre-pedi pedi before I go get one. Seriously.

Let me know how the movie is... Zac Snyder is one cool dude.

Missed talking to you this week!

Mama Kat said...

Awww...I love random posts.

I do not love toes. Not. One. Bit.

I do love Caroline. SO adorable!

Xazmin said...

Love your randomness! I adore those shoes - too too cute!

Rhea said...

That's an adorable photo of your Caroline.

I love green toes. And purple. And blue. I wonder if the new job I have has a toenail polish "Dress" code. hmmm...

And Watchmen looks good. I hear it doesn't live up to the graphic novel though, because of the complexity of the book. But I've never read it...

Veggie Mom said...

Love the greenish toes and the Chucks. So, do you have ENOUGH?!? BTW, I'm starting a new Pop'rs Giveaway tomorrow!!

BPOTW said...

I've got to get my toes repainted. I nuded them a couple weeks ago and they've NEVER gone this long (in my adult life) without polish. I look down and don't even recognize my own toes. Hopefully you'll get the spring weather up there soon. After all, I hope to be in that same area of the world in a couple of months!

Elle's Mom said...

We definitely have enough :-) Love this post.
