What I Did in the Woods This Week End

It’s spring in Oklahoma and beautiful. The lot of all the people here just don’t seem to care about it — Do they even go outside?(?!?!?).
Then, we have our few that do enjoy this warm breezy weather, this includes my MIL!

Some people go fishing, kyaking, innertubing, cycling, sunbathing, archery is pretty big here, a spring clean never hurt anyone… But my mother-in-law goes mushroom hunting! I…

Breakfast for Dinner, Anyone?

Mm. There is nothing I love more than fruit, when it comes to food. Its so fresh, sometimes I sit outside on a sunny day and peel a few mandarin oranges, taking in the lovely citrus smell. Fruit is almost unreal. I was reading through my emails this morning and clicked on one of the ( waaaaay to ) many health newsletters I have subscribed to. I scrolled through it skimming for anything that I may…

How I Bond With My Darling Dude

My DH (Darling Husband) and I LOVE cars. We both grew up around Chevys and have a classic ’72 c10 that is very special to us and will probably never leave our family. But what we use as our daily driver (and what DH insists on calling the grocery-getter.) is a Honda Civic Si. I know I never thought I would love a honda and I’m almost positive DH never thought he would, but here we are having…

The first step I took towards doing simple, happy things.

Two years ago when I moved in with my fiance, like many young couples, we had a television… But no cable, and it stayed like that for a while. We didn’t stare at the wall. We got Netflix. It was supposed to be temporary but we discovered so many new shows and series that we are hooked on. There is something so nice about finishing everything we both have to do for the day and looking forward to…

JOY PROM - JOHNSON CITY, TENNESSEE

"Young man, there’s no need to feel down. Young man, get yourself off
the ground” — pumps from the speakers, the trumpets blare and then —
“It’s fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A.” — and hundreds of arms extend into
the sky while red and blue lights flash from the stage.

Grace Fellowship in Johnson City, Tennessee, joined the Joy Prom movement in 2011 and are continuing to go strong along with other groups in Las Vegas, Charlotte and more. The guests of this prom range in age from knee-high to a grasshopper to older than 60 and have a range of special needs. Everyone at the event has the common goal of dancin’ their ass off and having a good time.

The night starts with the red carpet, where the attendees are announced and they enter dressed to the nines. Once at the party, you can get a horse drawn carriage ride, play Wii or air hockey, get your photo taken at the photo booth with a wacky mustache or big boa, or sit around and visit.

After dinner is served and all have eaten, the DJ starts the music. Some roll out to the dance floor while others strut — and everyone dances.

Like out of a movie, while Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” is spinning one young woman hops on the stage and does the entire choreography without missing a beat. The crowd cheers and she is not without a dance partner for the rest of the night. Couples smooch and slow dance and many are spun during a fast number. The music is hit after hit and it seems like barely a minute has passed before the lights come up and it is time to go home.

Guide Note: If you or a family member has special needs, consider finding a Joy Prom near you to attend. If you have photography skills, have mean dance moves or have experience with food service, consider volunteering at the prom. (It’s the only time you’ll see me dance in public.)
