Wednesday Thoughts

I have been in a blogging rut lately, which is why I haven't blogged in a couple of the days. I feel like the only things I talk about is food, and random thoughts...which can get pretty boring to read (and talk about).

Today was kind of disappointing...in which it's nothing new in this area. They are never ready, so I have heard except every blue moon. We were unable to close on our house today...because the people that our paperwork gets sent to hadn't reviewed it all, just yet. I'm thinkin' "we have deadlines to meet, so why can't you people meet the deadlines you all have to meet??" I just don't think it's fair. And not to mention this disrupts any sort of schedule or agenda Mike and I have. So, it could be tomorrow or Friday when we close...could be next week. Who knows.

Yesterday I went to the dentist, and I left with some pretty disappointing news. 1) I have to get my wisdom teeth out. (That really wasn't the disappointing news, because I knew that was going to have to happen...no way around it.) 2) I have cavities in each of my wisdom teeth. This reason not being that I'm not brushing good...just because they are so far back, it's impossible to reach. 3) I have the beginning stages of gum disease. UGH. I feel very blessed to have good teeth as in straight. I feel confident in my smile, thanks to my parents who paid big bucks for braces. I knew something was up when ( CAUTION: GETS GROSS) I would brush and they would bleed so bad I would have to hold a washcloth up to them to get them to stop bleeding. They would get so swollen and puffy that it would hurt to even touch them, let alone floss them. So, flossing has to become my bestest friend. It's even a bigger priority than brushing.

Other than that, nothing too exciting has happened 'round here. I got outside this afternoon when I got home from work, and did a little weed pullin' and "landscaping". Looks pretty good if I do say so myself. I did our tree in our front yard adding brick around it and some mulch. The other tree is next on the list. I think the hubby was proud.

Now that I am all blogged out for the evening, hope everyone has a great night!

Can you believe it's almost Easter!?

Just a Weird Kind of Feeling

Have you ever had a feeling you can't really describe?

It's not really an eery, something bad gonna happen type feeling, just different, like I can't really explain it.

You're gonna totally laugh at me, because it sounds so strange, and so out there..but I'm going to attempt to explain what I am feeling.

Today has been a good day. We went to bed really late, like probably around 2;30ish...so naturally, we both slept in. (I know, our butts should be in church, but that's for a different post.) We ate our breakfast and watched New Moon that the hubby got me from Netflix. I still prefer the first one, but it was good. I went to the grocery store, and my hubby left to watch Wrestle Mania at a good friends house.

Maybe it's because I have been so lazy, and really haven't done too much as in productive (when really I have). But for some reason, this feeling is a lonely type feeling. Which is totally absurd, because my husband and I have spent our time together. We're really together, all the time. And him going to watch Wrestle Mania was completely fine by me. He wanted me to go, but I figured I could stay home and do some stuff I needed to get done rather than during the week.

I don't know how some wives do it. My dad travels every week of the month pretty much, so my mom has grown a custom to being at home and having her routine down...without my dad. And they make it work. But I never realized how hard it would be to have Mike away every week of the month. I mean, I'm missing him right now. Which is dumb because he's just at a friend's house watching Wrestle Mania.

I can't wait till he gets home tonight to get a hug and give him an extra big hug. Maybe it's a good thing that I am feeling this. Maybe it's a tad bit weird that I just saw him less than 3 hours ago and I'm missing him already.

Oh well, what can I say....I love him!

Random Kind of Saturday

  • I'm sitting here watching "The Pregnancy Pact" on LMN. Yes, I've had such an exciting weekend so far. No doubt, the movie's interesting.
  • Yesterday, my afternoon was full of coughing. The kind of coughing that is started by a single thought of coughing, and the kind of coughing that once it has started, it never, ever ends.
  • I decided to take some Bynedryl to try in some way ease up my coughing attacks, so with that, I went to bed at 8:30....on a Friday night.
  • I had to work this morning. No fun.
  • My hubster is at Buffalo Wild Wings watching UFC. I opted to stay home and let him have his guy time.
  • I have every single candle that I own right in front of me on the coffee table. I look like I am having a seance. I promise you, I am not.
  • Looks like Wednesday, we close on our house!
  • .....and I know that these girls were crazy enough to get pregnant on purpose at 15, but why in the world are they drinking while pregnant??
  • My hubby got New Moon off Netflix, and it came in the mail today. We went and saw it in the theatres when it came out, but due to a stinky, over weight woman sitting right next to me with her balloon type jacket all in my seat, I was not able to pay attention. Yeah, that's why we have begun to hate seeing movies in the theatres. Between constant cell phones going off, babies crying in an adult movie, people talking...the hubby and I would much rather watch it in the comfort of our own home.
  • Speaking of our own home...did I mention we are going to be brand new homeowners??

My Day Off...

....didn't consist of sunshine and blue skies...apparently Mother Nature wanted to throw in some gray skies and rain drops for my day off away from work.

It was a good day any way. I met one of my BFF's, Denise for a Mexican lunch at the Margarita House. I swear the lunch portions are just as big as the dinner portions. I came home with some rice and a half of a Chimichanga. I still think I have Mexican blood in me.

Afterwards, I ran around town to the Goodwill near by where I found some adorable Easter and Spring decor. That will be for a later post since I have not taken any pictures just yet.

Finally, I headed to a near by Antique store/Flea Market that I have been eyeing for the past year.

I am in search of an old window frame that I can get crafty with. A good friend of mine said she got hers there, so in attempt I checked it out. Instead, I found an adorable bunny plate (for a later post) for my coffee table. I actually wouldn't call it a plate, but you'll see it eventually.

And that was the day off. Pretty exciting, don't ya think???

Tonight has been quite enjoyable. The hubby and I finally got our Netflix activated again, so our movie pick was "The Proposal"....one of our favorites.

Sandra Bullock is a personal favorite of mine, and just the movie itself is great!

Now enough for the rambling. Sorry it wasn't too interesting!

Hope everyone has a great Friday!

We Have Moles...

Our neck of the woods has been very low key tonight.

Not that any thing too exciting happens with us Monday through Friday.

The hubby and I very rarely, I would say, get out during the week.

Tonight, I made a new dish that was fabulous! I hate that I didn't snap a picture of it like I did with the Southern Chicken Potpie in my previous post. I got this from a Facebook friend who was cooking it for her church group that night.

She calls it "Spaghetti Bake".

Basically, you cook your spaghetti as if you would normal, mix it all up, place it in a baking dish. Top it off with Mozzarella cheese, and then place croissant dough on top flat. Bake it till the dough is golden brown, and that's it. I know it's a carb overload...but it was mighty good, and the hubs loved it!

As you can see this is currently what is happening in the Thomas household. Hubby's playing some war game with his brother on the XBox, and sweet Kaci wishing she could fall sleep, next to her daddy's feet. Not gonna happen.




Ahhh, yes....the weather is perfect for keeping the air off, and windows up.
This picture is a constant reminder of my longing I have to redo our kitchen.

We have moles.

Yes. 8:00 p.m. the Hubby and I was outside in the front yard spreading out this stuff for the invaders we have destroying our yard. Hopefully this helps...

Tuesday

I was late on having my "Happy Spring" post being on the official first day of Spring.

But I couldn't resist on passing the Beeee-autiful tree that sits right out back of my place of work.

I get told only 523,813 times a day how pretty it is, and only asked about 489,762 times what kind it is.

It's a Cherry Blossom. And I love it.

If the Hubby and I ever build a house on a huge piece of land, I want a ton of these trees all through out our property. It looks like it snows pink....in the Spring!





Moving on to better things, my sweet Mother-in-Law arrived here at the house yesterday.

I wish she lived closer...maybe one day soon that might happen.

Thankfully, I am off on Thursday. I'm hoping to make a trip to my beloved Hobby Lobby, and maybe even lunch with my sweet husband...

And if I'm really lucky...the rain will continue to hold off till a later time after Thursday.

Spastic Monday

I always try to prepare myself for the upcoming Monday that lies ahead from a busy weekend.

I hate how you wait and wait for the weekend to arrive only to have it pass right before your eyes, and then you're right back to wishin' it was the weekend again.

This past Friday night I stayed home and relaxed while the hubby went out with a few friends to watch wrestling in downtown Nashville.

I was content on my comfy, brown sofa reading blog after blog with an occasional glance at the Lifetime movie that was on. I love nights like those.

Saturday was unusual for the hubby and I. We are usually blessed to be off on the same days, same weekends and always on the same Holidays. (That's the joy of working for banks).

Our Saturdays always consist of sleeping in, and waking up to whatever has to be done around the house and just enjoying the day.

Instead, we woke up at 7:15 in the morning, and headed to a local gas station for an energy drink and some sort of healthy breakfast bar. No such luck.

We had 7 hrs ahead of us to sit and listen to a woman talk about mortgages, credit, why and how to own a home...all in a fold up metal chair. My buttocks has never been in so much pain in my life...and yes, I said buttocks.

Needless to say, we received our Certificate for taking the class, and went home to nap for about 3.5 hours. We were one tired couple.

Sunday consisted of my normal cleaning day, which led to a issue between the hubs and I. For some strange reason, cleaning always brings frustration out of me. Maybe it's because I am OCD about how I want stuff done? Maybe it's because my husband acts like he doesn't know how to do anything around a house? Or maybe it's because I just hate cleaning sometimes. I have come to the conclusion that I must be in the mood to clean, and it can only come upon me on my own terms. If the house is a mess, it will eventually get clean. So don't worry yourself to death.

As for today, well...it's Monday. What do you expect?

I woke up in hopes of putting a roast and veggies in the crock pot, only to find myself extremely sluggish and not with it.

I tend to ponder the thought....

"What in the world am I gonna do when we have a kid?"

Chicken Pot Pie

Tonight for our Sunday dinner, I decided to make a personal favorite. I got it from a dear friend who cooked it for the hubby and I. We loved it!

I like to call it Southern Chicken Potpie.

Ingredients:

  • 2 deep dish pie crust (one for top and bottom)
  • 1 can of cream of chicken
  • 1 large can and 1 small can of the Original Veg-All
  • 2-3 chicken breasts (I cheat and use an Original flavored Rotisserie Chicken)
  • 3 tbsp of butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 c. Chicken broth or Chicken stock
  • 1/2 c. Milk
  • garlic powder
  • Minced Onion
  • Salt & Pepper

Boil chicken until cooked through, set aside to cool. Once cooled, Shred.

In large skillet or saucepan, melt butter and add flour. Cook on medium for 1-2 minutes. This mixture will be thick.

Whisk in Chicken stock/broth and Milk and allow to thicken on medium-high heat.

Add garlic powder, onion, and Salt & Pepper.

Stir in Cream of Chicken soup, Shredded Chicken, and veggies.

Allow filling to heat through.

Fill pie crust with filling, and top with crust. Trim edges and pinch to secure closed.

Cut vents in top crust.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.



All mixed up.

Kaci hoping I'll drop something.

Overflowing of goodness.


Scrumptious.

I thought this was the cutest idea...head over to You Had Me At Hello and you'll find her variation of this.

I tweaked some of the letters to my own, but I owe the idea to her!

This Got My Atttention

When I opened my laptop this morning, turned it on...naturally my set homepage pops up, which is MSN.

I have always enjoyed reviewing the happenings of what is going on in the world, what has triggered certain people, and what the debate is for today, in which they have displayed in there 5 second slide show.

Today really drew in my attention. I guess because of some several key factors.
  • I am a female.
  • I love looking in to other people's worlds (call me nosey, but whatever)
  • I love weddings!!

It was called, "I Hate Your Wedding Website".

I have friends who have shared their upcoming big day through tools like websites. Social networks like my addicting Facebook gives brides and grooms to be to share their big day on it.

And I LOVE IT!

In all reality, when the hubby and I were planning our wedding, I started to prepare a wedding website through The Knot.

It's wonderful because it has everything you need step by step in the process of the big day.

Now, enough rambling...but back to the article I read. To sum it all up, I gathered that people will judge if you seem to go overboard in sharing your big day.

In my opinion, brides wait their whole entire life for their Prince Charming to come sweep them off their feet. If brides (and grooms) want to go "overboard" and share the big news, so be it. They are entitled to from the day of the engagement to the day of the wedding, to however long they want to gush about it afterwards.

I would much rather hear gushing of happiness rather than tears of heartache.

What's your thoughts?

A Kitchen Rut

I need some advice. No nothing major, just some ideas on what to do. I ask my husband for suggestions and his reply is, "Whatever you wanna do, babe is fine with me". Fat lotta good that does me.

So, this is what I need some ideas and suggestions on. This bare space of a wall between my kitchen cabinets and over the sink.

I have tried to somewhat make it appealing and nice, but it's wearing thin on me. I just don't like it anymore.

I would absolutely love if there was any way possible to put a window over it, but I know that would cost more money than my hubster would want to put in to it, but goodness...would that look lovely, or what!?



So, please, please, please people...share your ideas and thoughts!
Note: I did head over to Hob Lob after work, and I searched and searched for some sort of rack or shelf that would look good, but no such luck.

Today Was a Good Day

Today was a good day....for many things. Sun was shining against the bluest of blue skies with huge white skies beaming a temperature of around 68 degrees. Another reason it was such a good day is I finally figured out how to get my "post a comment" back to working. I don't know how it got disabled, but all I had to do what place a check mark in a box and that was it. And I finally got my hair done. I will be quite honest though, it's taking some time getting used to it. I guess when you're brunette for so long and then go to being blond in a matter of a few hours, it takes some time. It's strange though because I have changed my hair color so many times, but yet I still go through some sort of shock.

This picture is so discolored. It looks strawberry blond, and I look white as a ghost...almost like I am dead. Maybe it's because I am standing in a kitchen with a huge light over my head. But for those that were so eagerly awaiting my "new do"...here ya go.



A couple posts ago, I mentioned that I was in craft mode and was in the process of waiting for some paint to dry. I wanted something cute for our front door since, well, the Fall wreath was starting to go out of season.


When the Bff and I went out for some retail therapy,
I picked this up for $1.29 at Joann's.

I actually used Chalk board paint because I couldn't find
our black spray paint. It worked just as good.

And this was the end result.
I thought it turned out cute.

Wednesday What Abouts...

  • I got my feelings hurt today. That's never fun, but as always, I try to take it as a grain of salt.
  • We are so close to finishing up the home buying process. We are very grateful for the loan we were able to get. No down payment required, and no mortgage insurance required as well. Basically, where we live it is considered in a rural area. The loan is called a USDA loan. The only part that is no fun is the class that is required for us to take.
  • The baby fever still has not let up. I would have thought it would have by now, but it hasn't. I'm keeping it to myself though in the Thomas household because I know the hubby wants to wait a little while longer, and I can handle that.
  • I did not participate in the "Wear Green for St. Patty's Day" today. I actually was going to, but this morning I ended up running late, and grabbed the first thing I saw on the hanger in the closet. Oh well...no one pinched me.
  • I still have "American Honey" on replay. I think I may go and get the CD soon. It's too good not to have in the CD collection.
  • Tomorrow I get my hair done! I'm so excited...I pray it turns out! Pictures to come!
  • I saw a quote as a friend's Facebook Status...and it has stuck with me ever since. I'm gonna end this post with it. I hope you are impacted by it as much as I am...

"Anger repressed can poison a relationship surely as the cruelest words."

American Honey

This is my new favorite song.
I have listened to it over and over and over again.
I love Lady Antebellum.

New Hair

I'm one excited girl! Thursday evening I have a hair appointment. I haven't been this giddy about my hair in such a long time.

I'm getting my hair done with some one who started doing my hair from day one of deciding to go into hair. Before her cosmetology license, before any type of training I trusted this woman with my head of hair. She's gone from being so nervous about picking up a pair of scissors, to a professional hair stylist who is booked up for weeks at a time. Now she owns her own salon in the heart of growing Mt. Juliet, and I have an appointment to see her.

I basically have been in a rut for some time now with just my appearance. Gaining weight sort of changes my whole perspective on my own self image. (Strange, right). I haven't been wearing hardly any makeup, or fixing my hair, or anything of that nature. Which just makes me look even worse. So...

I have decided things have got to change. My own self image is a reflection of how I feel about myself. I want to feel good again. I want to feel vibrant again. And I am going to.

After scoping out all of the 2010 hair trends and styles...I have leaned towards these two:



I'm a big fan of the chunky bangs.

I have always loved this hairstyle of
Nicole Richie.

I'm even going to go back blond. The past Fall-Winter months I have been dark. And it's now faded. People have told me that I look much better as a blond, and I think I do too. So, as of Thursday evening....I will be Mrs. Blondie, again.

Sunday Randoms in a List

  1. I'm not too fond of this time change just yet. Today has flown by, and needless to say I'm not looking forward to this week coming up. I'm wishin' I could hit an Add button to lengthen this day.
  2. The hubs and I took a ride out to the new Kroger Marketplace to grab some groceries (and I wanted to browse some more home decor aisles). Never again. It's amazing how it took just now for me to realize I cannot grocery shop, compare prices, and feel like I am finding everything on my list with the hubby whining and complaining.
  3. The hubby and I had a round 2 of the Margarita House today. We met my Bff and her husband, Matt for lunch. Can't beat another 10 bucks for a full meal. We take advantage of things like that.
  4. This Saturday we have to go to a class that lasts about 7-8 hrs for First Time Home Buyers. Well, I guess it's more for the Mortgage Loan we got for our house. No Mortgage Insurance needed and No Down Payment needed. Can't complain...we're gettin' a great deal. Problem is, is I have a teller banquet that is in downtown Franklin at 6:00 that is formal themed. It's not mandatory, thank goodness...so I may have to pass that up. I'm thinkin' about it. Who knows. I just know it's gonna be a long week.
  5. The Bff and I went and did some retail therapy. I'm in the process of waiting for a future door decoration to dry (it's paint), so you will be seeing that in a future post. I think it's gonna be adorable though.
  6. I'm watching Twilight again.
  7. I have to find this month's Book Club pick this week. I'm looking forward to trying this out.


I Think the Mexican Might Have Done It....

Maybe it was the spiciness?? Maybe it was the salsa?? Maybe it was the chicken?? All I do know is I had one of the craziness dreams ever. It was all about Kaci and it made me wake up to see if she was still cozied up in our bed.

Kaci weighed about 3 lbs. when we first got her. She was back to that size in my dream and for some strange reason we had one jar candle sitting on the floor.

Apparently, she was eating the wick of the candle...the lit wick part of the candle. All I remember is that I ran over and she had already swallowed the flame. I remember seeing her whole body light up like a glow worm. (I'm tellin' ya, it had to be the Mexican food.)

I looked at her teeth in her lifeless body, and they were all black and charred along with her gums.

Wow...even just typing it, I sound stranger than ever.

Hot Dinner Date and a New Rope

Here's a question for starters....why in the world does it feel like eternity for the weekend to arrive, but then so fast for the week to get here?

Today was such a great day. I started off the day by working till 1, and then ending the day with relaxing on the couch, blogging away and watching a movie with the hubby.

We did have a hot date at a new Mexican restaurant that was absolutely delicious....Margarita House. For 2 complete meals, chips, salsa, and drinks we paid around $10.50, and that was because of it's grand opening being yesterday. We have already decided we will be returning...very soon. I have decided that I must have a couple of ounces of Mexican blood flowing in my veins. (Not really...if you saw me, you would see that I have no Hispanic...what...so...ever.) I could eat it everyday, I'm sure and never get tired of it.

After our great dinner date, we headed to our favorite store Target to do our usual walk around. I could seriously do some damage to our bank account at that place. LOVE IT!

I did manage to get our sweet Kaci a surprise! It's amazing how you can buy a rope and they think it's the greatest thing! She loves it...she even carried it around the yard when I took her outside to potty.


Kaci and her new rope

And in my opinion....today was a good day!

Confessions Part 2



  • Sometimes I will toss and turn on purpose when I can't sleep, just so I can accidentally wake my Hubby up and he can talk to me.

  • I often wonder what it would have been like to have had an actual wedding

  • I regret not getting bridal portraits before I got rid of my wedding dress.

  • Ever since watching on Netflix the documentary, Food Inc., I really cannot look at chicken or anything of that matter the same way. I always have those thoughts in the back of my head. Today, I had a free coupon for a free Chick-fa-let sandwish, I didn't get half way through before I tossed it because of my flashbacks of what they showed and said. No joke.

  • I think my husband is incredibly HOT!

  • I really want to get back in to church, when that will happen, I don't exactly know.

Back Home Again

After venturing in to work this morning for about 2.5 hours, I am once again back home and on the couch. I was sent home after I guess my boss and co-workers saw I looked (and sounded) like death walking, as I call it. My coughs sound like loud, vibrating trombone's, and with each one, it feels as if a razor blade is slowing slicing each layer of skin in my poor little throat. My voice sounds like a man's...and I look as if I should be walking around with my head in a fish bowl. I feel drained, like I have no energy in me, but yet I can't sleep.

So, at approximately 3pm this afternoon, I should know if all this time I have been dealing with Strep Throat or not. Fingers crossed, it's just a bad case of allergies. When I spoke to my Family Doctor, she unfortunately said it sounded like a bit of both. Lucky me.

As of right now though, I have found one of my favorite movies on TV...and I even made a point to record it, so the hubby can watch it with me sometime. I think this was one of Julia Roberts best movies...ever!

And along with the movie....I have this little fur ball tucked away at the tips of my toes...
Note: The post I am currently typing
is in the picture of the laptop screen.

Please pray I get better soon. I'm getting really antsy not being able to really do anything, whether it's work, or being outside in this spectacular weather.
It's starting to drive me bonkers.
UPDATE:
I went to the doctor, and my strep test came back negative. They drew blood (in which I almost passed out, AGAIN!) to test for any infection in my blood...they couldn't find anything along with my Mono test being negative, but did show that I had some sort of infection because my white blood cell count was so low. So, to sum it all up, I have a BAD sinus infection.
And boy, does it SUCK!

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today is my dad's birthday...and I wanted to post a little shoutout to the man I call Dad! I have no clue if he even reads this, BUT just so my little blog world can see what a great guy he is...here it goes!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD!
You mean so much to me, and I wish that I could express just how much I mean in words! Thank you for all you have done, taught, and shown me!
I love you!!




Confessions Part 1

  • I am a whiner. I whine when I'm sick, I whine when I'm bored, I whine when I'm in a bad mood, and I whine when I'm in a good mood. What can I say?? I.am.a.whiner.
  • I have turned in to a phone hater. I hate talking on the phone. If someone calls, I have to be able to give my undivided attention to you, or I won't answer. I hate when people call, and then they do other things to only act like they are listening to what you have to say.
  • I am a bad fighter. I don't know how to fight the right way. I have a horrible temper, and have been told " You go for blood when you fight". Um yeah, I'm not sure how that makes me feel.
  • I start things only to never finish them. I wish I wasn't like that.
  • I have dreams that I wish I could achieve.
  • I have had baby fever for the past several weeks that I was sure would pass, but it has yet to go anywhere. My thoughts have turned in to questioning myself, "why are we waiting?" rather than coming up with reasons why we should wait.
  • I try to pretend to be strong as a rock, only to be as weak as weak could be in reality.
  • My husband is my world, even though I sometimes don't love like I could.

To be continued...




Because I'm Not Cool Like That

I am an avid fan of the social networking site, Facebook. In reality, I'm more than an avid fan...I'm an addict. I love it. I love looking through endless pictures of friends, and even people who aren't my friends. I love catching up with old friends who I have reunited with on Facebook.


But I do not, I repeat do not love the endless requests of joining these games. I find them annoying. Yes, I did venture in to the game of Farm Town for a while there, but then I realized just how annoying it could be. So I deleted it.




This is very similar to Farm Town...
just as annoying, but with a different name.

The infamous Mafia Wars that takes up my entire page of my News Feed.
Hiding such things do not help.

I find it humorous when I see 40+ year old parents
begging for help with the cows. Seriously???


Sorority Life I can actually handle seeing. It's not that bad.
Maybe it's because I don't see it practically taking up my
entire News Feed page.



And with that being said, I need to make it be known in my Facebook world, that no matter how many requests I get sent, I will not join any of it.

Oh What a Beautiful Morning....

Oh what a beautiful morning.....nothing is going my way. Well, when I say nothing, I mean I'm sick, and it just so happens, it's the most beautiful weekend we have had in a long, long time...with a perfect temperature. Leave it to Liz, that this would be the weekend she'd be sick with pressure galore in her head and an off and on temperature. It's so aggravating.

So, my weekend thus far has been filled with Lifetime movies, blogging, sleep, Kleenex's, Cloroseptic spray, more sleeping, more Kleenex's, and orange juice. I am determined to be well by Monday.

And not to mention, this is my Dad's birthday weekend. I am so bummed that I don't think I will be well enough to attend the festivities. Maybe there's a miracle heading my way.

Yeah, I think I'm done whining.

Looking Through Pictures

I was lookin' through my pictures on my computer, and these pictures make me smile. Mike and I do not have children as of right now. We want to, and we plan to....but as of right now, we are lovin' the joys of this little fluff ball. She makes us both so happy.


When we first went and saw her, I knew right away, she was going to be a part of our little family. A new addition, that we soon decided to call Kaci. I remember sitting her down on the driver's side seat of Mike's truck and her little tail wagging back and forth. She was so precious.



And of course, Mike has fallen in love with her.

This is the hubster giving me the "Not another picture, please" look.


Our Kaci girl.



And this is what our typical Saturday's look like around our house.

Thank You....

You really wouldn't believe how much emphasis I was putting in to just a portion of my blog. My daily blogging was becoming a crazy obsession of wishing and hoping my followers would be increasing with every passing day.

My hubster would just laugh and chuckle when I would question, "why can't I get 47 comments on my today's post?". And "why can't I have 563 followers? Isn't my blog interesting enough?" He would just chuckle with an eye roll.

The purpose of my blogging was not being met. I wanted to have fun with this. I wanted to be able to let out my thoughts and emotions in a place that couldn't talk back, wouldn't judge, wouldn't criticize. And although that was happening, I was wanting more. More followers. More people. More friends.

So with that being said, I want to throw out a BIG thank you to my 2 followers, for taking interest in my blog. You really did make my day when I saw a notification on my dashboard saying I had someone interested in what I had to say..

And an EXTRA BIG THANK YOU to my sister, Amber for finally giving me the realization that I don't need 563 followers to be interesting.

So with finishing this post, I am going to remove my Followers gadget, and simply focus on blogging on what I feel the need or desire to blog about in hopes of inspiring and making someone's day a better day!

Layla Grace

I came across a posting on one of my fellow bloggers page of a precious family who is experiencing such pain right now.

Her name is Layla Grace....and she has cancer, a large massive cancerous tumor (stage 4 Neuroblastoma) in her abdomen. In addition, the cancer is in her bone marrow.

Please pray for this family and sweet little girl. It really spoke to me hard tonight while reading this. I know that God is more powerful than any sickness out there. Miracles can happen.
