Things To NEVER Say To A New Mother

Yesterday at church while I was waiting to check Carsyn into "Sunday School", I noticed a new mother in front of us in line. She was holding a very new baby, I'm guessing she couldn't have been older than 6 weeks or so. While I was admiring that little bundle of preciousness (and praying that Carsyn didn't go straight for her), I witness not one, but two women ask this new Mom a question that should never be asked! Now, as my inner-redneck struggled to explode on these women, I started thinking about questions and comment that you should NEVER say to a new mother.

One Mom’s iPhone Rules For Her Son

This is one of those pictures that has shown up on my facebook feed just about a million times. So, at notification 11,576, I finally clicked on it and read it through. It was about a Mom, Janell Burley Hofmann and her 13 year-old son. You see, her son received an iPhone for Christmas. But, what's interesting about this story is what went along with him receiving that iPhone... a set of rules, 18 rules to be exact. And, if I'm being completely honest with us both, I know a lot of adults who need some of these rules... including myself.

Some of my favorites are: "#11Turn it off, silence it, put it away in public. Especially in a restaurant, at the movies or while speaking with another human being. #17 Keep your eyes up. See the world happening around you. Stare out a window. Listen to the birds. Take a walk. Talk to a stranger. Wonder without googling."

Want to see the other 16 rules?

Dad’s Reaction To BCS Championship Game Tickets [VIDEO]

I'm back from my Mom's from Christmas festivites, so I've naturally gotten back to my normal activities. Get a snack and turn on Sportscenter, ha! They showed a video of a Dad receiving tickets to the BCS National Championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama and his reaction is priceless!

I'm pretty sure everyone liked the gifts that I gave them, but I definately didn't get any reactions like this one!

Forgotten Christmas Traditions

I have heard a lot of people talking lately about Christmas traditions. From the music they listen to, how their family gets together for the Holidays, the movies the watch, and what they eat.

I started thinking about some of the traditions my family has and realized that some of these traditions have changed over the years

Toys Donated In Memory Of Lane Goodwin [PHOTOS]

I think it's safe to say that people all over the country were extremely touched by the life of Lane Goodwin. We all watched he and his family fight the monster of childhood cancer. We celebrated during the good days and our hearts were broken when he passed away in October.

In lieu of flowers or a balloon release, the family requested sentiments be in the form of gift cards to certain stores. They planned to purchase toys for the children being treated at the Vanderbilt Children's Oncology Clinic. A few weeks ago... that's just what they did!

Carsyn’s Christmas 2012 Pics

Hope you enjoy! Merry Christmas from us to you!

Dave’s Favorite Seasonal Beverage…Just Skim Off the Egg Whites

I think many of us have weighed in on Black Friday--the official kick-off of the Christmas season--beginning, for many retail outfits, on Thanksgiving evening. But, let's face it, Thanksgiving is the beginning of the holiday season.

Thank You Notes: A Lost Art?

I'll be the first to say that sometimes, writing a Thank You note can seem like a hassle. Especially if you've just gotten married or had a baby, because there are tons to get sent out. And, if you're like me, no matter how old I get, my Mother is calling every 10 minutes asking if I've gotten the notes out, ha!

Then again, if you're like me, there's a feel-good feeling that comes from opening up a piece of actual mail, reading someone's own handwriting and feeling appreciated.

Yesterday, Carsyn and I got a Thank You in the mail...from a 7 year old.

Christmas Wish Always Reminds Me To Be Thankful

Every year I broadcast live from our Christmas Wish office and this year is no different. The office opened on Monday in Towne Square Mall, but I won't be over there until this coming Monday.

Yesterday, Chad called and asked me to go over to the office when I got off the air and help investigate letters. Of course I said "Sure!", but was thinking "Ugh, I'd rather not." Yep, you know what's coming next.... It doesn't take too many phone calls to realize just how lucky and blessed we all are.

My Awesome-Terrible Lorrie Morgan Show Photos [GALLERY]

It's a Christmas tradition for Chad, Dave and I to broadcast live from Gaylord Opryland Resort. I'll be honest, being here really kicks me into the Holiday Spirit every year! We also always go to the dinner show at the resort. For the last few years Louise Mandrell, but this year, Lorrie Morgan is here for her Enchanted Christmas Dinner & Show. Dinner was great, the show was great and you should check it out!

I knew that y'all would want to see pictures, so I took lots for you to check out! Bad thing is I'm a terrible photographer, sorry! So, look if you must, but don't expect greatness!
