Merry Christmas From Our Family To Yours

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.  He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this. 
Isaiah 9:6-7

I hope that your Christmas or holiday season is blessed full of happiness and cheer. May Jesus be the reason for your season and fill your heart. Merry Christmas and lots of love -Nicole 

Happy Chinese Food Day!!

We are not huge Valentine’s Day fans here in our house. OK we are not fans at all. I think that was one of the things that attracted me to my husband. We both had the same indifferent feelings about the day. After several years together we had a good laugh when we realized that every Valentine’s Day we were having Chinese food for dinner. It wasn’t even consciously done it was just what we did.
Finally instead of Valentine’s Day we started referring to the day as Chinese food day especially since we hate even the idea of Valentine’s Day.
So for all of you love birds out there Happy Valentine’s Day or Chinese Food Day if you are like us!!

Happy New Year!!! Welcome #2015

HappyNewYear

It’s hard to believe it’s officially 2015! 2014 was probably the fastest year in many years for me. I am not sad to see it go!

I think if I had to give 2014 a name it would be the year that I learned a lot of lessons. This year was easier than a lot of years have been so I can easily say 2014 was a pretty good year. Nothing too traumatic happened. Thank you Jesus! No seriously thank YOU

What life taught me in 2014:

  • The generic version of Aveeno Positively radiant isn’t as good as the real deal it’s worth the extra few bucks!
  • Walking away from social media for at least one weekend a month is therapeutic!
  • A good vacuum is a must
  • Blood is thicker than BS
  • Moving from Blogger to WordPress is stressful and a lot of work, but worth it!!
  • Sometimes when people come back into your life you realize they should have stayed where they were.
  • Time does not heal all wounds
  • Getting more weight off is a must
  • I am terribly allergic to aspartame
  • Alzheimer’s and Cancer Suck… I didn’t learn this in 2014 but they have impacted my family in 2014 (Please donate if you can!!)
  • Laugh at Fake People the joke really is on them….
  • Some “friends” are best left in 2014
  • Sharing any little thing you can with those is need is really rewarding
  • Get to know people outside of your comfort zone. It’s awesome!
  • It’s OK to be sad sometimes …. Tomorrow really is a new day!
  • Try something new and something that makes you feel uncomfortable it’s a great experience
  • Change isn’t always a bad thing
  • Losing weight is easy… keeping it off is super hard
  • Colie’s Kitchen has the best readers
  • My friend Lindsay is going to ROCK 2015 …I am so happy for her
  • Prayer really is the real deal and many MANY of my prayers were answered in 2014!
  • I am blessed beyond what I think I deserve! 🙂

Here to an amazingly awesome 2015!!!! I love you guys!!

We Are MOVING!!!

Not our home but Colie’s Kitchen. We are moving from Blogger to WordPress so if things look a little different for a while just know that it’s only because we are in transition. Nothing will change other than our look. You will still find us at www.colieskitchen.com 
 
We are hoping this transition will be complete by Monday. Our goal is to bring you a new and more efficient kitchen in 2015!!!
