Got Beaches???

Sooooooooo when we went to Seattle, we ended up spending a lot of time in Tacoma with friends from the Tacoma church. So the last day we had made plans to go hiking at Owen's beach park, which to me is literally amaaaaaaaaaaazing that you can go HIKING AT THE BEACH. Liiiiiiiike talk about combining the best of both worlds!!! 
So we get out of our cars and are walking to the beach together and I'm just like, wow, I can't believe you just have this whole beach park right up the street that you can just go to anytime!!!

As i'm exclaiming how awesome it is, my lovely friend Charelle, from The Inspired Prairie blog says,
"What, you guys don't have beaches in Arizona?!"

I just busted up laughing!!! I'm liiiiiiike, Charelle, It's  ARIZONA!!! She's just like looking at me like, SO???? I'm like, ARIZONA IS A DESERT!!! Deserts do NOT have beaches...we have CACTUS AND DIRT!!! I'm rubbing off on you, your having a Mary Moment right now!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!
Then her son informs her of the geography of Arizona and there's no coast line! And Charelle is like, wow, I didn't even know that and he's homeschooled, I'M HIS TEACHER!!!! LOLOL The whole thing was soooooo funny!!! It was literally one of my highlights of the trip!!! It was truly HILARIOUS!!! Good times, good times!!!
Memories with friends before we were quarantined!!! 
More on the Seattle trip coming soon!!!

P.S. I hope you do come check out our amaaaaazing dirt beaches this summer!!! We may not have waves, buuuuuuuuuuut, you can fry and egg on the sidewalk or bake cookies in your car when it's hot enough-Tacoma GIRRRRRRRL, your gonna fry!!!

Happy Monday!!!!

Here are the best coronavirus memes to laugh through boredom
This is soooooooooooooooo TRUE!!! Soooooo the other day I'm in the middle of making a triple recipe of banana bread and everything is in the Kitchen Aide all perfectly mixed up and I have one more ingredient to add, BAKING SODA!!! I go to my little spice cabinet to get it out and realize I'm all out! So i'm in my apron but I just get into the car and drive to the grocery store around the corner.
I go to the baking aisle, assuming this will a quick and speedy trip and am completely taken by surprise when I see that the whole baking soda section is COMPLETELY CLEARED OUT!!! I was floored!!! WHY IN THE WORLD ARE PEOPLE HOARDING BAKING SODA??? (Apparently there's 100 reasons to hoard it on Google!!! LOL) Three stores later, I realized I wasn't going to be buying any in the stores!!! yet I had a triple recipe of banana bread sitting at home!!! 
Soooooo I sent out a mass text asking everyone if they had any baking soda I could use for my banana bread and in exchange I would give them a roll of TP!!! AHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! Who'd ever thought we'd be paying with toilet paper...man the TPing days of my you...we had NO IDEA we were just throwing around GOLD!!! 
Happy Monday! I pray you all are doing well-I hope to bring some smiles to you all this week! Sorry I was slacking last week, I thought I was going to be SOOOOOOOOOOO bored with this whole quarantine thing buuuuuuuuut I ended up being soooooooooooo BUSY!!! Have a good week and stay close to JESUS!!!

Happy Sunday!!!

I am sooooooooooo thankful this Sunday that we were still able to have church!!! Things are changed up and different, BUUUUUUUUUT the presence of God is STILL THE SAME!!!
 I never realized just how blessed we were to have religious freedom! We always say we are thankful for it, and we are, but we still take it for granted because we've never experienced any kind of a hindrance on it... until now! However your having church, and through whatever means, BE THANKFUL for what  you have and forsake not the assembling of ourselves together!!!! Happy Sunday!!!!

Random dislike/love!!!

Have you ever just had a totally random dislike that just makes NO SENSE???
1.Burgundy on men!!! Idk WHY I don't like it on men and it's not even because I think its effeminate, I just hate burgundy on men... BUUUUUUUT I looooove it on ME!!! I know, I'm soooo WIERD!!!
2. CURLY HAIRED-MEN(WHEN I WAS A KID!) When I was a kid, I did NOT like to look at men with curly hair...I have NOOOOOOOOO idea WHY!!! But whenever Bishop Abbott would announce certain preachers that were coming, If they had curly hair I knew I was going to be soooooo disappointed!!! I would even try and fall asleep under the chair so I wouldn't have to look at them when they preached!!! I have NO CLUE WHY!!! YET, I myself have ALWAYS WANTED CURLY HAIR!!! Once again, I know...I"M WEIRD!!! Hee, hee!!!
What are your random dislikes???? Maryfranceswriting@gmail.com

P.S. I'm TOTALLY cool with men that have curly hair now...LOVE IT!!! I don't want any men straightening their hair before they see me!!! BAHAHAAA!!! Really, curly hair IS AWESOME!!!! buuuuuuuuuuut NOT soooooooo much the burgundy...you can't help it if God gave you curly hair, BUUUUUT YOU CAN CHOOSE NOT TO WEAR BURGUNDY!!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!

The rest of the world...AND ME!!!

Soooooooo have you ever heard the argument:
Some people say he did, some people say he didn't cuz he wasn't born, Ive heard people argue this out foreverrrr…. 
While the rest of the world is wondering if he had a belly button, 
I'm wondering WHO POTTY TRAINED HIM???? 
Think about it you guys!!! Did God potty train Adam and then he potty trained Eve??? Or maybe he wasn't even potty trained until God made Eve!!!! Maybe that was part of her job as his help meet, First thing you gotta help your husband with is getting him potty trained!!! Yes, I really wonder this!!!! Annnnnnnd before you say I'm crazy, YOU KNOW YOUR WONDERING NOW TOO!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!

They say I shop too much, buuuuuuuuut...

Soooooooooo I'm pretty much the queen of AMAZON shopping, as you may remember from this post HERE and there MAY be some people in my life that think I shop too much, BUUUUUUUUUUUUT, the other day I was looking in my Amazon shopping cart and it was EMPTY, with over 450 things saved for later...
Annnnnnnnnnd I was like, Okaaaaaaay, instead of focusing on all the things I HAVE bought, why don't we try to be MORE POSITIVE...
Look at all the things, 
I HAVEN'T BOUGHT!!! Hee, hee!!!;)
♥Mary Frances :)
P.S. Did you know that AMAZON will allow you to give people an allowance on it??? If you would like to contribute to mine, please feel free to do so HERE!!!;)

My official diagnosis!!!

Soooooooo if you know my nephew Odin, he very freely tells everyone that he had Autism, and he will then ask you, what you have!!! Hi, I'm Odin, I have Autism and so-so-and-so has Downs Syndrome, what do you have?! Before anyone can get offended I just shrug my shoulders and say, heeeeeeeyyyy we're ALL SPECIAL, some of us just MORE THAN OTHERS!!! ;))))) 
Well in the past, O has asked me what I have and i'm always like, IDK O, you tell me, WHAT DOES AUNT MARY HAVE???
Well the other day, Odin officially gave me my diagnosis of WHAT I HAVE and it's soooooooo fitting!!! So he's sitting in the hallway playing and he says something to me and I say, Ok seriously SOOOOO RANDOM! He says, no it wasn't! I'm like, YES IT WAS!!! He's like, No aunt Mary, I'm not random you are! I'm like, NO, you are!!! He says, 
NOOOOO Aunt Mary, I have AUTISM
 When he said that I just busted up laughing because it is literally THE MOST ACCURATE diagnosis of me. I am soooooooooo random!!!! We could go in conversation anywhere from, outreach and lost souls, to I wonder who potty trained Adam and Eve???? Then on to, OMW! last night I dreamed it was raining fluffy puppies!!!! 
Sooooooooo there you guys have it,
Soooooooooooo what do YOU have????;)
