7 Quick Takes…….

by Edie Wadsworth on January 30, 2009

~~~~~~~ 1  ~~~~~~~~~~ We bought a crucifix as a ‘love’ gift to each other. (early Valentine’s) Steve’s been wanting one for a long time.  Did I mention we’re not Catholic?  We are Lutheran however, and Lutherans tend to embrace and appreciate the historicity of christian symbols.  We just hung ours up and I’m just a […]


52 books in 52 weeks

by Edie Wadsworth on January 29, 2009

I’m on a quest to read 52books in 52weeks this year.I just finished ‘Amusing Ourselves to Death’ by Neil Postman: a great read about the powerful and denigrating influence television has had on our culture.  I heartily agree with his assertions and yet I full well intend to watch “Lost” tonight instead of engaging in […]


Wanted: loving and experienced guardian angel

by Edie Wadsworth on January 27, 2009


The day has come. She’s leaving and I can’t stop it. She’s promises that since she’s only moving an hour away, it’ll still be the same. And in some ways, I know she’s right. But the comfort of having her here right beside me has been one of life’s sublime blessings for me. And since […]


If I had a salon, I’d call it COIFFEDINGRACE…..

by Edie Wadsworth on January 27, 2009

I didn’t write this on Friday, but it is kinda funny. Here’s what I started singing when Taylor agreed to let me cut his hair: “I got skillz….they’re multiplYing….and I’m loooooooosing contro-ol….for the power you’re supplYing …It’s ELECTRIFYING”.  I sang it all night long.  Then I tried to find my Grease video. Meanwhile, he sat […]


Laundry Room Reveal……

by Edie Wadsworth on January 25, 2009


Edited to add:  I’m joining Kelly’s Show us Your House Party.  Click here to see more decorating and home ideas.  I did this project in January and already want to change it.  I. am. so. fickle.  We’ll get to the laundry room soon, but let me show you a few details that you might miss […]



I have been privileged in this life to have a sister (Gina) and a cousin who functions for all intents and purposes like a sister (JamieKnoxville). I guess that gives me two sisters. And today is Jamie’s birthday. So in her honor I give you a little peek into our shady past.  She sent me […]


I’m gettin’ my ‘stretch’ on……

by Edie Wadsworth on January 24, 2009


Don’t mind me. I’m just gonna practice my resizing skillz in photobucket……. My little baby Grace is not a baby anymore…. I know you’re gonna think I’m biased, but Taylor’s band has a new CD out….which is not yet available for purchase…but which I have downloaded onto my iPod…..oh.my.word. It is fantastic. I love ‘running’ […]


The Real Enchilada

by Edie Wadsworth on January 23, 2009


I decided to join in on Ann’s Food on Friday’s party and show you my Beef Enchiladas.  You must try this recipe.  Your family will crown you with many crowns.   And rise up and call you blessed. You can start how you like, but I’m gonna slice a little piece of this homeade Jalapeno […]


One of THOSE days……

by Edie Wadsworth on January 21, 2009


Melissa, at the Inspired Room is hosting a link series called  A Beautiful Life.  I didn’t write this post for that, but after I read her blog this morning, I thought it seemed appropriate.  Thank you for hosting Melissa and for always giving us inspiration. Today was by far the lowest point in my homeschool […]


Isn’t she lovely? Isn’t she wonderful? sing it with me

by Edie Wadsworth on January 21, 2009

I am absolutely in love with my new blog!!!!  My blog is a girl, BTW, and her name is Grace. And Grace just got a brand new look.  She got her hair colored and her nails done and a brand new dress from Anthropologie.  And the cutest Coach purse you’ve ever seen.  So while Lyndsay […]


Moments that make you go "Do What"

by Edie Wadsworth on January 20, 2009

Let’s first deconstruct the ‘do what’.  You have to have a similiar look on your face to Emme in this picture when I told her to hand over those chips.  Keep in mind that the phrase is a southern substitute for ‘huh’ or ‘pardon me’.  You must say the ‘what’ very high-pitched and in two […]


Joy in my Vocation…..

by Edie Wadsworth on January 19, 2009

 Heavenly Father,  Creator of heaven and earth, it is out of Your love and wisdom that You gave me work to do and fitted me in body and mind to do this work.  And yet my sinful will too often dreads the workday and casts about for other things to do.  But You, O God, have […]


My WWF name: Crusher Gracewell

by Edie Wadsworth on January 18, 2009

I’ve been in a knock-down drag out this morning with my very own little blog site.  I got a big bright idea that I would try changing the template on my own.  Remind me next time I try that, that I’m not technically savvy.  Remind me that I don’t even know how to email pictures […]


The post where my status as mommy blogger is confirmed.

by Edie Wadsworth on January 17, 2009

I would not want to be on Andrew’s side of this monkey business.  But surprisingly enough, it ended well and no one got the arctic chill.  In case you are still questioning whether I should win first prize with that beef stew (which I may just have to do a tutorial on) Andrew can vouch […]


The Good Samaritan……

by Edie Wadsworth on January 16, 2009

What were you taught about parables?  Earthly stories with heavenly meanings?   True enough I guess.  But why would Jesus speak in parables?   Why didn’t he just give us a clear cut list of what He wanted us to do?   Jesus himself answers that question when he say,  ”….so that you can know […]
