Hunker Down!

I love that term. I must have heard about 2 dozen native Texans say that they are "just gonna hunker down". And here we are. Hunkerin' down.

Grant and I made it to my parent's house last night. We did pack our valuables, like all of our important papers. We also selected some personal items to bring along. Grant chose to bring his guitar, golf clubs, Xbox, and his Bible. I brought my Bible as well as my jewelry, my wedding album, and my favorite black pumps. Because to lose those would truly be devastating. Atleast we know where our priorities are at.

My dad bought 2 generators and we have more food than we could possibly consume. Well, I take that back. We could definitely eat all that.

To make things a little more fun, we have Scarlett and Juliet with us this weekend. My sister and her husband went to a wedding in Vegas and my parents have been keeping the twins. We have tried really hard to keep the girls outside and active today since it looks like we will be cooped up all day tomorrow.

PLEASE PLEASE pray for safety. From the looks of the radar, the part of Houston my parents live in should be okay, but our neighbors in Galveston look like this is going to be really bad for them. As far as our place, thankfully, our apartment is on the 2nd floor but we still took precautions and rearranged some furniture, etc. Please pray AGAINST tornadoes! My dad has some kind of service that if a tornado is in the area his cell phone and home phone will get an alert of some kind.

So the winds and rain are supposed to start here in a few hours. Thank you for your prayers and hopefully the generators will work and I can update tomorrow!

Love you friends,


  1. We blogged at the same time. We're hunkered down. Love you. (I'm coming over now.)

  2. Jen,
    I told my hubby last night that some of my girls were in Houston and we had to pray for your safety!

    I am so glad to hear that so far everything is ok!

    Please keep us informed!
    Praying for you!
    Love ya
