I DID IT!!!!

Okaaaaaaaaaaay sooooo i'm really sorry that i've gotten behind on bloggin this week BUT....GUESS WHAT??? I made my August Bible readin goal!!!!!!!!!!! Wellllll since my Florida trip in july i have read through, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Neamiah, Esther and Job!!!! HOW AWESOME IS THAT????????????

Sooooooo like ten days ago, I had finished 1 Kings- 2 Chronicles and I was going to be startin Ezra the next day and I was would be cool if I could read through Job by the end of the month. So I calculated the pages and saw that it was ONLY 100 pages of Bible readin...I was like OH I CAN DO THAT!!!

THEN I looked that calender, counted the days and REALIZED that, there was ONLY ten days left in August, that would mean 10 pages a day (100 divided by 10 is TEN!!! OMW I did math...I feel SMART or something) of Bible reading...I was like ummm...thats KIND of a lot...then I was like,

I've never read my Bible all the way through, so when I complete the old testament I wll be able to say that I have!!! I can't wait!!! I think that will be such an AWESOME acomplishment!!! Then next year I will try to read ALL the way through in a year!!! I'm ashamed to say that I have never done this before...BUT I really, ever since my Florida trip have felt a pushing from God to draw closer to him...I guess I never did write that blog post for you all about my beach time with Jesus...sooo I gotta do it... to share it with you all...I actually did write it...that was the blog post that I accidentally deleted...ugh...I was soooo frustrated I had to take a break from it!!!!!!!

Well anywayZ, I decided that since I have been reading ten pages a day in Bible for the last month, why not push myself to do that for this next month of September too???? I totallly know that I can soooooooooooo do it!!! I'm on page 860...that means that by the end of this month I should be on page 1,160!!!
 Pray for me folks!!!!!!

Thankful for a...

Okaaaaaaaaay sooooo I told you all in my last blog post that I wouldn't bore you with ALL the details of my ER visit this past weekend...BUT it turns out to be a TESTIMONY that I can't help BUT share with you ALL!!! :)

So last Monday morning I woke up with an ache in my lower back. The first day I didn't think anything of it like I had just slept the wrong way or something...but it continued to persist, so I started takin tylenol etc...and it started increasin...weeeelll by Friday I was gettin worried because it was NOT goin away and I realized that it was just on the left of my lower back...I was like Hmmmm...isn't that like my apendix or something???? I'm thinkin in my mind like...naw its NOTHING...BUT I hav had friends who have almost died from their apendix rupturing...sooooo I look it up online and NO its NOT my apendix on the lower left its MY KIDNEY!!!

So i'm like ooo its NOTHING...i'm sure...BUT in my mind i'm like...weeeelll my mom had kidney stones...i've heard of people havin kidney infections....Bishop Abbott had kidney then later on in the day i'm havin this Bible study at my house and like before we actually had the Bible study we went swimmin and in the process of THAT my neice like sprained her ankle from jumpin wet on the my sis is like well I better take her to the ER to get checked out. So I'm thinkin oh man, I should just go and get my back checked out cuz i don't have a regular doctor right now...but I was like NO I need to stay and teach this Bible study!!!

Welll after everyone leaves my sis calls from the ER to give an update on my neice and she is like, you should just have Shannon bring you in to get checked out tonight cuz WHAT IF it is something serious...and I'm like...oh no...i'm SURE its NOTHING!!! But then Shannon is like, well i'm here and I don't have anything better to do, I'll just TAKE YOU!!!! Soooo off we go to the ER!!!

So Shannon is textin her friend and she tells him that she is with me at the ER for my back...well mean while we get called back for me to be seen and the whole time we are waitin, which was several hours, me and Shannon are just havin a total blast chit-chattin, and after about two hours we finally see the doctor and they can't find anything and I pretty much feel FINE and me and Shannon get some free coffee (Who needs Starbucks??? Just go to the ER!!!;) and head home.

And even though we had a TOTAL BLAST seemed like TOTALLY pointless to have gone to the ER cuz I felt FINE!!! SOOOOOOOO today, Shannon was tellin me that her friend had been soooo worried about me as soon as he found out he told his church and they were at the fair and they ALL stopped right then and there at the fair and prayed for me!!!!

I was like WHAT? WOW!!! For realZ?? ANd she is like, "YES!!! Like it happened right when we were gettin called back to the room!!!" And I was like, WAIT Shannon...I think thats why it seemed like the WHOLE ER trip was even pointless!!! I'm like, remember how when the doctor was checkin me out (Not like that!!!LOL;) I couldn't even remember which side the pain was??? She is like YEAH!!! I was like, thats cuz I didn't EVEN feel anything anymore!!!!!!Aparently, by the time the doctor had seen me, their church had prayed for me and GOD HAD HEALED ME!!!

Seriousley you guys...HOW COOL IS THAT??? My sis was like, I guess you hadn't actually gotten prayed for...I was like...NO...I felt like OH its NOTHING...I don't want to turn it into anything big...meanwhile...My friends in another state, didn't even know what was goin on and they prayed for me!!!  I'm like wow...I felt FINE yesturday and today I forgot that there had even been ANY pain AT ALL!!! God is sooooooo good!!!
♪♫♪Oh what peace we often forfeit, OH what NEEDLESS PAIN we bear...ALL because we do NOT God in PRAYER!!!!♪♫♪♪
♥Mary Frances :)

P.S. Thank YOU to all my Portales friends for stoppin in the middle of EVERYTHING to pray for ME!!!! You guys totally rock AND I love YOU ALL!!! :))) XOXO

So ANYWAYZ, we were waitin and waitin and waitin to be taken in that by the time I got to see the doctor me and Shannon were really hyper and just havin a grand time hangin out. So my doctor comes in and he just LOOKS at me and is like, "YOU LOOK REALLY GOOOOD!!!" I'm thinkin like really? Wow! Cuz I mean, WHO gets compliments in HOSPITAL GOWNS??? So i'm just like, "Oh, THANK YOU!!!"

He just looks at me again this time kind of confused, he is all, I mean like, HEALTHY, your health looks good!!! I'm just like, "Oh THANK YOU!!!" HAHAHA!!! It was soooo FUNNNNY!!! He just laughed then!!!

My Uncle Joe came over this week and guess WHAT he brought with him???
Thats RIGHT!!! His MOTORCYCLE!!! and guess WHO went for a ride on it???

I really wasn't scared at all!!! I soooo thought I would be!!! I guess its from all the years growin up with the Abbott's, riding ATC's, 4-wheelers, 3-wheelers around their house and up in 4-peaks!!! Or MAYBE its just as Bro. Ballestero said at Conqueror's Conference this past year...
"I was BORN to be WILD!!!"

Sooooooo Kim and I were havin a lovely little convo the other day, and we were talkin about marriage and STUFF... and I was tellin her about how sooo many of my friends that are my age are already married...ALOT that are even YOUNGER than me...been married for a long time... and I said i'm NOT bitter...BUT...sometimes you just can't help but ABOUT ME???? Like HELLLO GOD???

And Kim was ready with some very encouraging words, She said just think that all this time God is just perfectin your husband for you!!! I was like, Ooooo yeah...that sounds good...BUT ...Hmmmm... After the convo ended I kept thinkin on that matter. Then later on in the day, it dawned on me!!!

 Maybe, just MAYBE, and I know that this is going to sound HARD to believe because, HELLLLO we are talkin about ME, but perhaps its NOT just my husband that God is perfectin...MAYBE God is ALSO PERFECTIN...


Its always AUTOMATIC for us to assume that its the OTHER person that needs work done on them, but perhaps I need some workin over too!!!

♪♫♪He's still working on me to make me what I ought to be. It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars, The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars. How loving and patient He must be, He's still working on me. ♪♫♪

Like I said...its HARD to believe, that i'm NOT already was just a thought...who knows...I COULD BE WRONG!!! ;)

"For we are his workmanship,
 created in Christ Jesus, unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."  (Ephesians 2:10)

P.S. All I know, is that with ALL the work God has been doing on me lately, SOME MAN is gonna get a REALLLLLY AWESOME AMAZING AMAZINGLY AWESOME WIFE!!! :)

I'm a NUT!!!

Sooo I was at church this past Sunday and noticed that the Abbott's had put out their old CD that was made about 15 years ago, "Crossin Over" and I thought MAN I haven't listened to that CD in YEARS I should buy a I did! ($10 bucks people if your interested!) SOOOO I DID!!!!

Soooo when I pray in the morning, I like to put on good, Godly music, specifically sung by APOSTOLIC people, not that I don't listen to non-Apostolic singers, I just figure when I pray, I should just listen to Apostolic's cuz I mean after all, I KNOW we have THE SAME BELIEFS!!! And I just like havin the good music to help me get in the spirit and focus on God...

Well with that thought in mind, yesturday morning I went to put my NEW CD on which i had put in the CD player the day before and this up-beaty music that did NOT sound like the Abbott's songs, came BLASTIN on!!! I was like Hmmmm...I don't remember their music quite soundin like this before then on comes the singer sayin...
♪ "I'm an acorn small and round, lyin on the cold, cold ground..." ♪♫♪
I was like HA!!! I don't think THIS SONG is going to get me IN THE SPIRIT FOR PRAYER...even as much as I LOVE THE WORDS TO THIS SONG...
"Pepsi Cola came to town,
Coca Cola shot him down,
Dr. Pepper stitched him up,
now we all drink 7-UP!
I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a NUT!!!
Called myself on the telephone
Just to hear my golden tone
Asked me out for a little date
Picked me up about half past eight
I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a NUT!!!
Took myself to the picture show
Sat myself in the very first row
Wrapped my arms around my waist
When I got fresh I slapped my face
I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a NUT!!!
Stayed too late and said "Let's go"
Took my hand and led me out
Drove me home and gave a shout!
I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a NUT!!!
Hmmmmm...this song kinda like really FITS ME!!!!
♪I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a NUT...that is WHY i'm cracked YOU SEE!!! ♪♫  MAYBE, its NOT to far off of a song for me to listen to before prayer!!! The truth is that without God, I am UNWHOLE!!!
"...for I am the LORD that healeth thee."
(Exodus 15:26)

Mary's World Famous, Better than Kim's, Better than yo momma's, better than Cheesecake Factory's, Better than Paradise Bakery's, Better than Panera's, Better than Arby's,Best in the world, EVEN YOUR HUSBAND will love it, CHICKEN SALAD!!! :)))

Okaaaaaay sooooo EVERYONE in the whole world knows that I make like THE BEST chicken salad EVERRR....BUT just in case you didn't know that....I thought that perhaps I should tell you about it!!! :))) (Just cuz I'm soooo nice like that!!! :)

My friend Sheree ADORES my chicken salad!!!! So we were at this ladies thing this one time and i'm NOT gonna say when or WHERE, how many years ago or NUTIN cuz I don't want ANYONE to think that perhaps i'm talkin about THERE chicken salad...LOL...but Sheree had decided that after tastin MY CHICKEN SALAD that she liked chicken salad since mine was the only kind she had everrrr tasted she assumed that everyone's was like mine, well we went to this one thing, and she tried this ONE kinda chicken salad, which I actually liked, I mean I didn't think it was AS GOOD as mine...LOL...but I still liked it!!! Sheree, was like, Mary when I saw chicken salad I got soooo excited, and THEN I tried it and I was like OOOOOO this is NOT how chicken salad is supposed to taste!!! HAHAHA!!! I guess I had set a high standard for her!!! Later on I heard the lady tryin to get rid of it...HAHA!!! She was like, my husband JUST WON"T eat this!!!!! BAHAHAHA!!! And being the humble person I am, I couldn't help but think to myself, I BET he would eat MY CHICKEN SALAD!!!!!!

Everyone would always rave about my chicken salad but I didn't really see what they were makin such a big deal about...its JUST CHICKEN SALAD...then I began tryin other people's and I was like Oooooo....thats why everyone likes mine sooooo much!!! Well its really quite simple so being the generous person that I am, I thought I would share it with you this is what I call...

 Mary's World Famous, Better than Kim's, Better than yo momma's, better than Cheesecake Factory's, Better than Paradise Bakery's, Better than Panera's, Better than Arby's, Best in the world, EVEN YOUR HUSBAND will love it, CHICKEN SALAD!!! :))) AKA...

Mary’s Chicken Salad!!!
Well what are we waitin for here is the recipe for...
You will need...
4 boneless skinless chicken breast boiled till completely cooked then chopped up
2 tbs of sweet relish
3-4 tbs of white vinegar
half an onion chopped tiny
about 2 cups of mayo
2 tsp of salt
1-2 tsp black pepper

Mix it all together and let sit in fridge for at least 3 hours before eating.(You can also ad in chives, walnuts, grapes, pineapple if you desire- I’ve also added in cilantro before and ed it!!!;)

This salad will usually stay good in the fridge for at least a week a week or so cuz the vinegar preserves it and btw- this is NOT an exact recipe I NEVER measure anything…LOL!

So back in January, I decided to try and taste Cheesecake factory's chicken salad, JUST TO SEE if it was as goooood as mine....OR OMW WHAT IF IT WAS BETTER!!! I HAD TO KNOW!!! I was SOOOOOOOO NERVOUS about eatin it...WHAT REALLLLLY was better THAN MINE?????? When the waiter put that sandwhich in front of me...FEAR GRIPPED MY HEART!!!! As I raised it to my mouth I wondered...


As I took a bite of that sandwhich, my tasebuds were greeted absolute delicousness...I took another bite and savored the flavor in my mouth...Mmmmmm....Mmmmm...MMMMMM....soooooo, soooo SOOOOO GOOOD!!!! Sooooo good that I could HONESTLY say that it was almost, ALMOST as good as MINE!!! Thats right folks...I said ALMOST...but in that moment I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, that MINE was still BETTER!!!!!

When the waiter came to get my empty plate I told him that they had a REALLLLLY good chicken salad sandwhich. He was like, Oh yeah we do!!! I was like YEAH it was REALLLLLY GOOOOOD...Almost as good as MINE!!! Then I gave him sweeet smile and made him laugh...HAHAHA!!! It really is GOOOOOD though!!! (I get the chicken salad sandwich almost EVERY time I go...which isn't to often...LOL!!)

BUt its TRUE, Almost ALL the ladies in my church LOVE my chicken salad!!! I make it alot for different things and people are ALWAYS lookin forward to it!!! Sis. Abbott, Bishop Abbott's WIFE...LOVES my chicken salad!!! She told me that MY CHICKEN SALAD sanwhich IS in fact BETTER THAN Cheesecake Factory's!!! AND...She has requested me to make it lot of times and She EVEN....DRUM ROLL...SHE EVEN...DRUM ROLL...SHE EVEN...DRUM ROLL...SHE EVEN ASKED ME FOR MY RECIPE!!!!!!!!!!! Do you know what an HONOR it was for SIS. ABBOTT, my role model, a meek and quiet spirit, the ultimate prayer warrior, reader of God's word, the most SUBMISSIVE, SPIRITUAL lady I know, a lady of legacy, who also happens to have amazing industrial skills AND to top it all off a really, really good cook, ASK ME,  wonderful, beautiful lil O ME...LOL....for MY RECIPE????? I WAS SOOOO HOnoRED!!!! :)))

WEEEELLLL what are you waitin for...go make your hubby some of this deliciousness...and if you don't have one...WEEEELLLL...maybe this will help you get one...I hasn't worked FOR ME YET...BUT...LOL...Maybe it will work for YOU!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!! :))))

Sometimes she makes me laugh SOOOOOOO HARD I have to spit out my drink... just so I don't choke to death!!!
For example...
The other day Kim & I were lookin at a Pentecostal couple's weddin website and we were  readin about this couples proposal story and the girl says that he got her a DIAMOND WATCH!!! And Kim was like, "OMW MARY!!! OMW!!! I want a DIAMOND WATCH!!!" And I'm like thinkin ummmm...And she is like, MARRRRRY I want a diamond watch when I get married...Then before I can even think of something else to say she says...
"So I can pawn it later on...You know...when times are rough!!!"
I was like OMW Kim SHUT UP!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! She was like HEEEEEY I'm just plannin ahead!!! (She has been readin Dave Ramsey's Money Makover, so I guess the diamond watch would just be her EMERGENCEY FUND!!! BAHAHAHA!!!)

See what I mean???
she is HILARIOUS!!!

What matters the most...

Actually what REALLLLLY mattters THE MOST is how GOD sees you...if you could see how God sees you, it would change the way you see yourself!!!!
 "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee..."(Jeremiah 1:5)
"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." (1 Peter 2:9 )
"For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight." (Ephesians 1:4 )
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." (Psalm 139:13-16) 
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)
"Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, "Abba, Father." So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir."
(Galatians 4:6-7)

"Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you..."
(John 15:16)
Basically, God loves and adores us!!!! How amaZing is that??? To think that the God of the whole entire universe, the one that spoke everything into existense, LOVES AND ADORES US!!!! He thinks about us!!! He has a plan for us!!! He CARES!!! He really, really does!!!
No matter who you are, what you have done or what you are going through at this very minute, when you look at your reflection in the mirror, REMEMBER, Jesus LOVES  YOU!!!!!! ♥ Do you get it??? Can you see it??? (If NOT read these scriptures again and again and again and AGAIN!!!) Cuz JESUS LOVES YOU && THATS what matters THE MOST!!!!!

My feelings towards MATH...

Soooo we were havin a church yard sale this past weekend and I was lookin through the books while waiting for customers and I saw a College Algebra text book!!! I said to my sis, Ooooo COLLEGE ALGEBRA!!! She was like bein a smart aleck and is all, OH do feel like a FAILURE seein that book??? I was like NOOOOOO!!!!! She is like OH cuz you FINALLY passed??? I was like are you kiddin me...NOOOOOOOOOOO....cuz I NEVER even made it close to taking THAT CLASS!!!

She was like, well, what that math class you took like FIVE times before you passed??? I was like UH...Mat 090, Which I think is like basically pre-algebra!!! It took me FIVE times to pass that class...BUT I did it!!! (Of course it may have gone a little quicker had I NOT been so busy writing LOVE poems!!! AnywayZ I found a few funny things to show my feelings towards...MATH!!!!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! There are soooooo MANY math teachers I WOULD LOVE to show this lil joke to!!! My college math teacher, Mrs. Weintraub was like the BEST math teacher everrrr...AND she is pretty much the ONLY teacher that managed to make math some what fun...Either that or I really just looked forward to seein all her cRaZy babelicious outfits cuz she never wore the same outfit twice and trust me I WOULD know... cuz I was strangely in her class three semesters in a row...Anywayz she would talk about how much FUN math was and by the end of the semester she had managed to brainwash some of the other students into believin this to...LOL!!! SO this one time some of the students were like...OH math is FUN!!! ANd Mrs. Weintraub was like, SEE you guys I told you math could be fun!!!! And so I was all like, Oh yeah, for a moment here I forgot I was even in class...TOTALLLY thought we were all at Disneyland!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!! She was like OH MARY!!!!!!

Thats RIGHT...STOP being a STALKER Algebra!!!
FOR REALZ...I'm sick of having to do it FOR YOU!!!

Yup...THERE IT IS!!!!

Weeeeellll....ITS TRUE...;)...LOL...this sums it up about math!!!! Sometimes I really wonder how God could make me soooooooooo DUMB in math but pretty much BRILLIANT in everything else??? LOL I guess it was another way of helpin me to be humble!!!! ;) HAHAHAHAHA!!!

A love poem...

My Love and I

He sits here with me nice and sweet,
Just my love and I,
When I hold him, I know that I can make it
I kiss his face for the wonders it does show me,

Even though I push all his buttons,
Many tests we have been through together
I seem to think I'm right, but in the end,
 He ALWAYS has the right answer

I try not to abuse him,
Although truthfully,
It is quite often that I do use him,
Oh what a love we do share,

♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥


(Wrote this lovely, beautiful, heartfelt poem durning one of my college math clasesss!!! Okaaaaaaaaay soooo yeah, I DID FAIL THE CLASS...BUT...I can you stop such amazin inspiration from flowin???;)

Back to school???

Sooooo the kids over here started back to school this past Thursday. So Wedesday night we were pickin up some of the kids for church and I was talkin to one of the little boys who is 6 and I asked him if he was excited about starting school the next day and he said that he was.

Then he turns to me and is like, What about you Mary, are YOU excited about starting school? I was startled by his question...I'm like WHAT? He is like, aren't you starting school tomorrow too? I'm like, uh, NO!!!! He is like why not? Don't you HAVE to go??? I'm like ummmm Prince, HOW OLD do you think I am???? He pauses and thinks about it and thinks about it and then he is all, like 14!!!!!

I'm like WHAT?????? HAHAHAHA!!! How HILARIOUSLEY AWESOME is that??? Thats like exactley half the age of what I am right now!!!! Like WOW!!! Thats RIGHT PEOPLE!!! Someone that I was 14 and STILL IN SCHOOL!!!! HAHAHAHA!!!

Me at 28...
AKA: 14!!!

(Actually, the ironic thing is that the last time I was weighing in the high 200's IS WHEN I was 14!!!!)

The Pencil

I found this old poem I wrote in 2003 that I thought I would post for you all!!! I have NOT been able to find it anywhere in YEARS and I was kinda disapointed. But I was doing some studyin the other night and found it when I was totally not even lookin or expectin to find it!!!

Now you must all obviousley know that I LOVE writing, BUT I don't really claim to be a poet. Poetry is a totally different kind of writing art and I'm really not very good at and because I'm not very good at it I really don't enjoy it... HAHA!!! HOWEVER, I wrote this poem and is it ok if I say that I kind of like LOVE IT!!! LOL! Not so much for writing skill, BUT for the message!!! Enjoy, and feel free to edit and help me with makin the words flow better!!! :) Bro. Abbott ALWAYS used to edit my poetry for me...sooo since he isn't here feel free to help out!!! :)


I am a pencil,
A very special pencil,
Other pencils may look like me,
Except for one Small thing,

Their eraser's are black from wear,
My eraser is nice and clean,
I always keep myself looking good,
So that the pens will be impressed with me,

I live to be in the center,
So that all can admier me,
And when people come needing me,
I hide, praying I won't be seen,

My biggest fear is that,
Someone might sharpen me for use,
For the most important thing to me,
Is ME, ME, ME, ME, ME!

Perhaps you are wondering why,
 I keep rambling on and on,
I'm afraid I cannot tell you,
Since I have NOT been sharpened,
I really have NO POINT!!!

Don't be like this pencil,
Who just rambled on and on,
Learn to let God use you,
Or your life will have NO POINT!!!

Standin there, holdin our towels is THE MOST HANDSOMEST MAN I have EVERRRR seen in my WHOLE entire LIFE!!! He was like REALLY, REALLY, REALLY tall like 6'6 or something...I mean like total basketball player height, then broad shoulders like a football player and of course CHOCOLATE skin!!! (Tall, Dark & chocolate, just like my bday card! LOL!;) I was just like...
"OMW...GOD is this a belated birthday present from you???"

Soooo anywayZ, i'm just standin there frozen, my eyes wide, with my mouth HANGIN open...I couldn't even say NOTHING!!! And the poor guy...I don't think he thought my reaction was cuz I thought he was cute...I think he thought I was like really FREAKED out by him...cuz its the south and lotsa people are all RACIST over there...He is just like...heres your towels ma'aam...and I felt REALLY bad that he thought I was scared of him...I wanted to be like...Heeeeeeey I'm NOT like that...but I couldn't cuz I was FROZEN...LOL...I was like awwwwwww man...I soooooooooooo shoulda been wearin my grape koolaid shirt...had I been wearin that shirt...idk ya'all...I REALLLLLY think I just might not be single right now!!! HAHAHA!!! ;)

Sooooooo anywayZ, when I finally UNFROZE enough to shut the door I just fell on the bed and was like... OMW MOM!!! THAT WAS THE BEST LOOKIN GUY I HAVE EVERRRRR SEEN IN MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE!!!! And she was like all calm, Oh was he black? I was like...MOM...

Soooo I immediatley sent out a MASS text to ALL MY they were like DID YOU GET A PICTURE??? AND i was like NOOOO I couldn't...I was FROZEN in spot!!! Oooo and then I told my sis if I see that guy again I am sooooo gettin a picture with him...and my sis was like...OH well...hav fun cuz I don't know WHO will be takin that picture for you!!! I was like WHAT??? Sooo then I Improvised...I'm like ok FINE if I see him I will JUST take a picture of him!!!!
Oooo and I had the PERFECT LINE!!! I was gonna say, "Excuse me sir, I promised all of my friends back home that I would bring them back a REALLY CUTE souvenier; Sooooo I was just wondering, could I get a picture of YOU!?!?! LOL YES...I WROTE THAT PICKUP LINE!!! You know its BOMB!!! Unfortunatley, i NEVERRRR got to use it!!! :(
However, even though I and the tall, dark and chocolate McHottie never crossed paths again...
I still, somehow managed to pick myself up and of course...
Lived Happily Ever After!!!

African food...

I was thinkin about Jestina the other day!!! I haven't seen her in about a year now but MAN...We had some GOOOOOD laughs together!!! Here she is teachin me how to make African food...


I remember the first time she taught me how to make it!!! She was askin me to teach her how to make some American food and I said SURE!!! And I was like and then you can teach me how to make some African food!!! And she was like ok sure...How about FRIED CHICKEN!!! And I was like laughin I'm like thats not AFRICAN food Jestina!!! Thats like African American!!!

And she was like "No Mary, fried chicken is NOT African American food. I learned how to fry chicken IN AFRICA! I was like what for REALZ??? WOW!! I thought it was reallly cool that its actually an African traditional food that was incorporated over here after all this time!!!

And let me tell you ain't had GOOOOOD fried chicken until you have had Jestina's!!!
NO ONE can make fried chicken like THIS GIRL!!! She can put in just the right seasonings right into the flour and OMW... MMMM!!!I mean I don't usually put other people's cookin over mine...BUT when it comes to Jestina's FRIED CHICKEN...I do...Its BOMB!!!!

She gave me some advice while she was teachin me too!!! "AND Mary, If your gonna make fried chicken for black people, you BETTER make A LOT...or else they gonna be YELLIN at you!!!"

Words of LOVE!!! ♥

A wife asked her husband to describe her. He looked at her, then said, "You're A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K". She asks, "What does that mean"? He said, "Adorable, Beautiful, Cute, Delightful, Elegant, Foxy, Gorgeous, Hot". She smiled and said, "Oh, that's sweet, but what about 'I, J, K' "? He said, "I'm Just Kidding' ".
I LOVE IT!!! That reallly, realllly, REALLLLY cracked me up!!!
