A true Soul Sista at heart! I absolutely love music! A Soul Sista is a Best Friend who loves her friends like no other, a Confidante,a Mother, Sister, Daughter and just someone who loves the Lord and loves to have fun doing it! I work for a Christian Radio Station in Tampa Florida and Oh... I almost forgot... I have no trouble sharing my opinion about anything!Married to "the soulmate" for 23 years this November. I have two peeps, "Big Boo" is my 14 yr-old teenager..Lacrosse lovin Son who is as loved by way to many chicks at school....and then there's my Horse lovin "Lil Bon..aka...for Lil Bon Qui Qui.....need I say more. So there's always some drama..."up in here" if ya know what I mean!
Today has been a very sad day for me. One year ago today my sister, Angela, was found dead in her home in Memphis Tennessee. I can't believe she's been gone for one whole year already. I was busy taking down the Christmas tree when I got the call from my brother in law that the ambulance had been called to her house. This was and to this day so unbelievable. I miss you Angela....I will see you again some day!
Ok....I'm thinkin school should be starting back up right about now. As bad as I don't like homework...trying to please everyone is just a little too much for me at this point and time. I need a girlz night or weekend....like ....immediately. Can I get an AMEN? Lil Bon is bored at the drop of a penny and if her friends are not at home...she get's angry....and the Big Boo...has friends and more friends that are over everyday and I am the official "Taxi" of the neighborhood apparently. I not only "take" but also "pickup" ...does that sound fair....I think not.
I have asked Lil Bon to pick up her clothes from Christmas .."O Let's see a dozen or so times" and have they been picked up? Not......nada one. And if I have to pick up one more band-aid wrapper....I am going to go crazy. She is obsessed with band-aids......she thinks the floor is the trash....so tonight hopefully I cured her of this. You might ask....what did I do to possibly cure her of this problem? I picked up every wrapper I could find and went and put them right next to her plate as she was eating and nicely gave them to her. I think seeing ALL of them together kind of overwhelmed her.....she looked at me with disbelief like I took her food away from her or something. I came back and it was all gone....so I think she got the message. I am looking forward to going to the movies tomorrow.
Yes ...My Sista's I really thought I had outdone myself making cookies for Boo's school tomorrow....that's until I got to the snowman and had no black icing. Well....I had a little bit of brownie fudge icing so I was trying to cheat a little with a toothpick and when I got through....this is what he looked like!
Ok ...so he's been on the other side of the track with
this toupe...he looks like he's Italian fo sho!
So I wanted to thank my Bloggin
Sista...Cuz you know I give credit where
credit is due......Shawn over at Seriously
lent me her BIG Cookie cutters....and
my mitten turned out a lot better!
It's a little blurry but whatevah!
Here is a cute picture of all four!
In my personal opinion...my Santa Hat came
out the best!
So ...here's to my Sista....Lisa....who is the Cake Miss..
(in an Italian accent)......you toucha my cookies...
I breaka ya face!
Sista's I DO NOT BAKE....It scares me! But these
were so fun! I followed the royal icing recipe on line
and it made the cookie icing dry hard and everything.
Can I just tell you how much I love Christmas Cards! So far I only have eight....some somebody somewhere is slackin! I already have a favorite....well.....there's two in the running. One of them is a blogger....and...the other one use to blog but doesn't anymore. I don't know what it is about pretty paper...but I love it. You would think that I'm a scrapbooker....but I'm not....but I do love me some good paper!
One of my friend's name is Torry Greene. She is the creator/entreprenuer of Graceful Correspondence! A custom paper company that I love to frequent ....too much really! She designs the coolest stuff. I am just waiting for her to learn how to do blog templates....she is so talented...I know she could do it! But then I wouldn't have all my cool stationary.
So if your reading this and you haven't sent me a Christmas card....pony it up my friend! Here is my address so there are NO excuses! Christmas Count Down has begun!
Debi "SoulSista" DeLoney

Valrico, FL 33596
My favorite Christmas Card will receive a Crystal Beaded Cross!
I must say Happy Birthday to the SoulMate! Not that he reads my blog. He thinks that Facebook is for kids and still doesn't know why I like it! Not to mention the fact that there was a report on Bloggers tonight getting fired from there jobs from posting inappropriate pictures on their sites. There's one thing I try to keep in mind while posting. Act and talk like Jesus is sitting right next to you....would you say it.....would you post it? Let me be clear....I need Jesus everyday to keep me off a path I could very easily go down. And the days you don't hear from me......are generally the days I have gone down that path!
Yes ..you know the day......when Satan is sittin on your shoulder sayin this and tellin you that!!! OH yes...
he makes him self known. I think he has messengers sent down.....just to mess with ya!Some might say he presents himself as the "anonymous blogger".....CAN I GET AN AMEN up in HERE!
It's been a crazy but sick week....but the Hamster has finally left the trunk of my car and is well on it's way to
Stacy! I will have to tell you honestly that this is the first year that my Christmas shopping is not done. This is somewhat unsettling since I have to mail things to Memphis this week or they will not make in time for Christmas!
The soulmate and I are shopping tomorrow night while Little Bon is at church making gifts at the church boutique for family and friends. (This was a really great concept!) It was only $12 for the workshop and she gets to make four gifts and wrap them and bring them home. Not to mention ....that it is also cheaper than a sitter for the night!Three hours will go by fast...so trust me...I will have a handy dandy list so we can make the most of our time.
Little Bon and I headed to Steinmart to buy the soulmate some presents for his birthday today when she stumbled upon something that I thought was very interesting. Unless have been living under a rock...everyone I know has heard about the "Snuggie" blanket....right? Well....leave it to Little Bon to discover that someone has allegedly "stolen" their idea and have come up with the same thing but low and behold named the "Cuddler"!"
This really bothered her for some reason! She said, "Mama, did those people steal away the idea from the Snuggie Man?" I said...well apparently so...since we've heard of the "Snuggie" and not the "Cuddler". She said, " Mama, what do you do when someone steals your idea?" I said...."well as we are sitting here talking about it...I'm sure some where in some courthouse.....a judge is going to have to make that decision on whether or not "Mr. Cuddler" owes "Mr.Snuggie" some money! She said...."that's not fair is it!"
I said , "no baby"...it isn't. She said, "I wouldn't want anyone to do that to me....would you?" No baby...I wouldn't! So we've decided...this year ....we wont be buying a "Cuddler".....we will be buying a "Snuggie"...
in the Cheetah print of course!
What do you think? Snuggie or Cuddler? Is it fair? As I sat here at wrote this tonight....I couldn't help but start laughing. You see I have this crazy bloggin friend name Shawn....and today when I went to her post to catch up I saw this dots comin down on my computer...at first I thought I had a virus or something...but then I noticed that it looked liked it was snowing. Bing Batta Bing.....it was snowing....so I have to tell you that I saw this and thought my reindeer on my template would love to play in the snow....so SISTA"S ...you KNOW I give credit where credit is DUE.....SHOUT OUT TO ...Shawn over at SERIOUSLY....for being the SNOW QUEEN of BLOGGIN! O YES she is!

Yes today is the official day of Gators and Bama playing for bragging rights to go the SEC National Championship. You would have to know me to understand....I love the Gators but most football snores me. But I have to share with you a funny story about my cute nephew Jonah...one of the twins of my sister, Jen. My Brotha in law is a Die Hard Bama Boy....who tends to tease me when possible, Christian love of course. Only today...I have to tell you that I will be teasing him today because I can tell everyone what his son is saying!
A couple of day prior to the holidays....my Big Boo Lacrosse "playa" won 1st Place in his Lacrosse Championship Games for the Tampa Bay Fire Elite Travel Team. I must admit I was quite proud! So proud that I will share some awesome pics of Big Boo and his team. I am not proud because they won...I was proud of the way they played the game and won! Here is my favorite picture!
