Today is Day 1 of Officially Beginning the Moving Process..Ready.Set.Pray....and....GO!   :)

Saturday, November 23, 2013

Studying, Learning, Growing, And Praying to be able to share and encourage those around me through God's word. I am really excited. I have had a desire growing within me to get out of the Lord's way and allow him to use me to reach others. I hope he will do so. I am not worthy but I know he can perform any task So hopefully I can decrease and allow him and his glory to just shine through. Please pray for me to become all that I can through Christ. :)

Baby Hangers..who knew?!

I am seriously posting a tip on how I hang up mine & Travis's pants. lol. I have a "hang up" (no pun intended) when it comes to hanging up pants. I want them hung up however I don't like the hangers that you can place 4 to 5 pairs on. I also don't like my hangers getting unbalanced & sticking out all jacked up. It turns out baby hangers are perfect for hanging our pants on. The closet looks so organized with them perfectly balanced on the hangers. So, if the simplest little things make you as happy as they do me, this tip is for you. Baby hangers all.the.way.

Easy Peasy

The.Best.Crock.Pot.Chicken.  -So Tender

Broccoli & Cauliflower Au Gratin- Also a big hit with the children =)

Zuccini Bread- Perfect dessert for a healthy lifestyle. Moist and sweet enough.

Everything is easy to make, tastes yummy AND- the Zuccini bread doesn't call for any sugar which is a rarity.

Oh, Also, PLEASE check out this Site. 2 of the recipes came from there. Lisa has done her research and I am just loving all the information she has to offer. Getting educated on what you are eating and feeding your family is SO important. Get educated so you can keep your family safe and healthy. Food has been altered So much in the past decade. It really is scary what is allowed in food-and what is allowed to be called "Food". I can promise you, if you took the real food challenge, you would see a big difference in how you feel and also in how you look. Headaches, Most cancers, Acne, Alzheimers, ADD, ADHD, Obesity, etc... SHOULD NOT be happening and without any doubt, I can assure you it is from what we consume, So get educated on what you are consuming and make it a priority. It is so important.

Our Family Treat Saves the Day...Again

I have been scouting out blogs for Recipe Ideas. Cooking every meal every day causes you to run out of ideas rather quickly. I was remembering how hubby Loves Zuppa Toscana soup from Olive Garden so for Fathers Day, I decided I wanted to try to make it. I checked out one of my favorite blogs because I had a feeling due to their Love for Italian food ( and because they have endless selections of awesome recipes), they just may have a recipe and sure enough, as usual, they didnt let me down. It tastes Exactly like Olive Garden. I am thrilled! If you want to impress any Olive Garden Lovers, start with this recipe. I was surprised of how simple it was to throw together.

Polka Dots and Taboggons

I don't usually get in on any daily blog action like "Wordless Wednesdays" and I especially  don't get in on fashion blogs because I don't have a bit of style going for me but over at Sherry's Blog, I read that it is polka dot day over at EverybodyEverywear and I noticed that Little Bit was coincidentally prepared to be in on it as you can see:

  She has been in a trance with her pants...

Little Man apparently takes after his momma when it comes to style as you can see in the attire he picked out the other morning to wear while watching "Imagination Movers"....

I'm just happy he coordinated his colors ;)

Princess Naomi & The Magic Tea Set

For my niece at Christmas, my mom and I came up with what we thought was a sweet idea. She had gotten Naomi a real tea set and I wrote her a short story starring her and her magic tea set. I was able to described the tea set she got in the story and had it made into an actual book. I made the characters in the book be the kids in the family. Lauren was a doll, and Isaac and Carter were two very hyper little bunnies. My mom was in it as well (as the "fairy-grandmother'). She received the book, the Tea Set, and the character's in the book. I had a ball with it. I probably liked it more than she did to be honest. If you get bored and want to check it out, you can do so HERE.

I was in love with yesterday. It was so relaxing. Did I stay in my pajamas all day and do nothing?
No, I actually cleaned, worked, cooked, and spent the day with my babies- and it was So relaxing.  After breakfast, Travis and Carter did some grocery shopping and ran some errands while Lauren and I went to the office to get some of my paperwork caught up then we all met up at the jungle gym to play before heading home. We spent the evening playing with the kids. There was one point later in the night where Lauren was mesmerized watching Carter do his puzzle and Travis and I were looking at magazines-my Rachel Ray magazine came in (love her), and it was just one of those moments where I was reminded how the Simplicities of Life are just the Biggest Blessings. My favorite place to be is in the midst of my little family. While all four of us laid out on a blanket in the living room staring up at the fan (Lauren, Travis, and I just staring at it, Carter counting the fan blades) Travis asked me what I wanted to do tomorrow if it was a rainy nasty day and I told him, I would be perfectly fine with us laying in the floor staring at the fan all weekend long. It sounds like a perfect plan to me. :)

Happy Weekend!!

My Favorite Blog....

I  have posted a link to my favorite blog before but I want to again. I LOVE Sara'sArt House. Her projects always make me smile and she has the coolest house ever. I get so tempted to paint random areas in my house with chalkboard paint everytime I go play at her blog. Her kitchen is a huge fave of mine but I'm thinking about getting (painting)  a headboard just like hers. You can check it out at the link I posted above. you should definitely spend some time on her blog and see what she has done around her house. Very inspiring :)

20 hours and counting....

I'm about to finally get some sleep (Lordwilling). I have successfully (and unfortunately) been up 20 hours. I'm not crazy (completely), just busy. My goal the past 2 weeks has been to get caught up at work, cook all the meals, and stay completely on top of the house work, and have an art project for Carter every week and make sure we read our bedtime story every night. So far, so good but I  am slightly exhausted :)   Little bit likes to be up on a different schedule than mommy on Sunday and Monday night  which just happen to be 2 of my most hectic work days so I am running out of energy quick and it isn't even Wednesday yet- though it will be in about 30 minutes :).

My husband was bed bound recuperating this past weekend and I spent most of my time in the kitchen making awesome food and spoiling him completely rotten. It was fun taking care of him but I don't like seeing him in a vulnerable state- at all. We have been together for 8 years and out of those 8 years, he has been sick 3 times. He was happy he wasn't having to see me in pain though. I've put him through Emergency C-section, allergic reactions to medications, emergency room with kidney stones, fainting.....all kinds of fun drama. I see now why he was so much more stressed out than I was during those times.

I'm excited my boss is allowing me to train 2 of the other ladies so I can delegate some of my work out to them seeing as how I can't do 5 peoples jobs any longer and It only took me being on the verge of a nervous break down for him to realize it. Eventually I will be back to part-time hours and get to snuggle up with my babies more!! :D

Little bit is a morning person. She loves to smile and giggle and try her hardest to talk when we wake up in the mornings. It is So incredibly hard to leave her and little man is beyond hilarious right now. I Love his age. He cracks me up constantly. These babies are so entertaining. It's hard to believe that these 2 stress reliefs will probably be the cause of my stress in years to come.

Well, I'm done with the pumping gig and they are asleep so off to sleep-At Last!
