Because we don’t have kids yet, we get to buy ourselves toys. Thanks to my new blogging friend, I took her advice….stalked her blog….saw what she got….and begged Todd for one too. And I LOVE IT!

Introducing…..drum roll…..”THE FLIP”

I heart this this little contraption. It’s a video camera that plugs directly into your USB port. It has it’s own internal software and you can burn it directly to a DVD. Well I used my Windows Movie Maker and DVD maker to make one for the wedding we just went to. It turned out beautifully if you’ll allow me to toot my own horn! Here is a sample:

Prediction: There will be a movie about this man some day.

Mackenzie Allen Philips’ youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack’s world forever.

Completed: GREAT BOOK! Quick read!

How do you know if you’ve found the one? Can you really love the one you’re with when you can’t forget the one who got away?

Emily Giffin, author of the New York Times bestselling novels Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and Baby Proof, poses these questions—and many more—with her highly anticipated, thought-provoking new novel Love the One You’re With.

Ellen and Andy’s first year of marriage doesn’t just seem perfect, it is perfect. There is no question how deep their devotion is, and how naturally they bring out the best in each other. But one fateful afternoon, Ellen runs into Leo for the first time in eight years. Leo, the one who brought out the worst in her. Leo, the one who left her heartbroken with no explanation. Leo, the one she could never quite forget. When his reappearance ignites long-dormant emotions, Ellen begins to question whether the life she’s living is the one she’s meant to live. At once heartbreaking and funny, Love the One You’re With is a tale of lost loves and found fortunes—and will resonate with anyone who has ever wondered what if.
