Beautiful Things

Each day as we add content to our blog, we also add followers. We often take breaks from our crazy -rip and run- days to check in. Imagine how excited we are when we see that someone has taken the time from his or her life to stop by and check us out. Our readers and our followers provide us with everything from motivation and encouragement to laughter and love. Having said that, from time to time, we will feature ideas on our blog that someone has shared with us (with their permission of course). This evening that idea comes from Donna over at My OBT (One Beautiful Thing). We started following Donna less than 24 hours ago, and we were so impressed with her that we had to share her idea. Long story short, in an effort to reduce the stress in her life, Donna made the personal decision to look for at least one beautiful thing every day. This idea sounds like the perfect way to reduce stress. Who can remain uptight when they’re constantly on the lookout for that ONE beautiful thing?

Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns is onboard and up to the task- are you?

Our “OBT” for today….

Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed? Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude. By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up). Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
