IN MY LIFE
Just when I thought I was feeling better yesterday, my temperature crept up again last night. It’s been a busy week, not only getting back in the swing of things, but also because I’ve had four rounds of live speeches to listen to and grade amongst two of the classes I’m teaching, so that hasn’t afforded me much rest.

Today I’m live on Talk of the Town sharing how to eat out cheaply in Nashville, but really the principles can be applied anywhere regardless of where you live. You can find all my tips here: http://www.samicone.com/eating-out-cheaply-nashville/

IN THE NEWS

*Adele reigns at the Grammys, taking home the night's top honors; Queen B wows with 9 minute performance

IN THE WORD:

IN MY LIFE
It's official, we are about to sail away! Yesterday we flew to New Orleans, where we will be embarking upon the family life love like you mean it marriage cruise in just a few hours.

I will be honest, yesterday was a little rough for me. The last time I was in New Orleans was 20 years ago and I don't have great memories, and even just walking two blocks on Bourbon Street brought a lot of those up. But once we were able to veer off the path and discover something new together, it reminded me that we all have a choice in our destiny. I am not a slave to yesterday or my past and it is up to me to believe the truth of who God has called me to be and rewrite my future.

Even in just the few hours I have been awake this morning, I have been able to work out, breathe deeply, read and meditate on God's word. I am reminded of the importance of taking time for ourselves and investing in our marriage. While you may not be able to join me on the cruise this year, I hope you will learn from my lessons (& consider joining us next year! ;)

I don't know if I will have Wi-Fi this week to be able to bring you the Daily Dash every day, but you know I will do my best. Make sure to follow me on social media @thesamicone & I will be using the hashtag #LLYMICruise. Ahoy!

Isolating the source of your baby's sleep problems.

This list will help you narrow down whether baby's sleep problem is baby-related, or instead associated with Mom or her diet, waketime activities, or Baby’s sleep environment.

IN THE NEWS
* Trump meets with Canadian PM Justin Troudea; Spicer calls him "Joe"

IN MY LIFE
We're on a cruise!

We got on the Carnival Triumph yesterday around 1, left port around 4 and it's been non-stop ever since.

One of the things I love about the FamilyLife #LLYMIcruise is that they have charter the whole shift, so you everyone here is on it for the same reason as you are. After dinner last night, we attended the main session that had great speakers, worship & of course, a lot of humor.

This morning, I inadvertently slept in, but after a trip there the gym, I heard sessions on helping your teen with their true identity & a "women's only" session taught by Barbara Rainey herself on "The Art of Being a Wife". We didn't stop to eat until after that and now we are finally getting to lounge by the pool for a bit for another fun evening (including a Jeremy Camp concert).

Any questions? Leave them in a comment below and I will do my best to answer them in the next video.

Don't forget to follow me on social media @thesamicone; I will be using the hashtag #LLYMICruise.

Spiritual exhaustion is never the result of sin, but of service- Oswald Chambers #quote

IN MY LIFE
We have arrived at Cozumel, our first port of call. We didn't book any excursions today, because honestly, we are trying to save money for our renovations. But just as honest, we are quite content to lounge around on the ship.

Last night we heard a great message on "the 5 keys to incredible sex" (you can check out my tweet about it from yesterday or I will post more once we are back on the mainland), along with an incredible concert by Jeremy Camp. We are going to explore the port just a little bit and then relax until tonight's festivities.

Any questions? Leave them in a comment below and I will do my best to answer them in the next video.

We’re officially eating out of boxes...

The Daily Dash: February 9, 2017 {#KitchenReno Day 2}

IN THE NEWS
* Winter storms batters NE
* President Trump's Supreme Court nominee criticizes Trumps description of judicial system
* Sessions confirmed as Attorney General
* Trump & others blast Nordstrom for dropping Ivanka's clothing line

IN THE WORD:
This Week’s Verse: Colossians 3:8
But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.

God never speaks to us in dramatic ways, but in ways that are easy to misunderstand- Oswald Chambers

IN MY LIFE
It seems I’m doing everything I’m not supposed to be doing lately:
* eating food out of bags and boxes (or not eating at all)
* going to bed WAY too late
* working too hard to pay for everything else we’re doing
* demanding my children explain “why” they’re behaving in a way they shouldn’t

Don’t you hate when you see what you’re doing, don’t like it, but have trouble fixing it? I know it’s only a season, but it’s exhausting! And by season I mean one week because we get to go on the FamilyLife Cruise next week. But still, I keep hearing in my head, “You should know better.”

And our walls are officially bare in the kitchen, and one is even down that was separating the kitchen from the “ping pong room”. Bad news: we need to find a new spot for the ping pong table; Good news; more than two of us will be able to work, cook and talk to each other at a time! Stay tuned for more updates…

It's coming down today...

The Daily Dash: February 8, 2017 {#KitchenReno Day 1}

IN THE NEWS
* Tornadoes sweep through south overnight
* President Obama pictured kitesurfing in Virgin Islands (with Richard Branson)
* Mike Pence casts historic tie-breaking vote to confirm Betsy DeVos

IN THE WORD:
This Week’s Verse: Colossians 3:8

We will find what we are looking for if we will concentrate on God- Oswald Chambers

IN MY LIFE
I’m coming to you live from Day 1 of our kitchen renovation today! This is something we’ve been talking about, saving for and planning for a year and a half, so it’s crazy that it’s finally getting started today.

I’ll admit, these kinds of things make me more nervous than excite and we’ve never renovated anything in any of our homes before, but we’re excited at what this will mean for being able to welcome people into our home.

On a side note, if you’re in Nashville and would like to see your fixtures, lights or kitchen wares featured on the Daily Dash, give me a shout - I’d love to chat ;)

A magical celebration starts today & we’re celebrating with a classic at home...

The Daily Dash: February 7, 2017 {#Pinocchio #DisneySMMC}

IN THE NEWS
* Trump acts court to review temporary travel ban
* Winter storms threaten West
* Brady's game day jersey stolen from locker room

IN THE WORD:
This Week’s Verse: Colossians 3:8
But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.

If you don't deal with God on the level of your will first, the result will be only to arouse sympathy for yourself ~ Oswald Chambers

IN MY LIFE
I’m not gonna lie - I’m a little jealous at all the fun a handful of moms are about to experience at this year’s Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. But beyond that is gratitude for the years I’ve been a part of that select group and excitement for those who were chosen.

To get in the right spirit, I thought it only fitting to snuggle up with a classic, Disney’s Pinocchio. Disney sent me this Blu-ray in celebration of it joining the Walt Disney Signature Collection. Considered one of the greatest animated films ever made, the timeless tale of Pinocchio won two Academy Awards in its time.

Now it will delight a whole new generation of dreamers with its masterful animation, unforgettable characters and award-winning music. The movie which inspired the world to wish upon a star, arrived for the first time on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on Jan. 10, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on Jan. 31 with hours of new and classic bonus features.

So if you’re like me and can’t make it to a Disney Park this week, allow yourself to be transported by the magic via Blu-ray and DVD.
