Starting over.......

That sounds a little more dramatic that is really is.  I just feel like I have come to a point in life where I just need a fresh start.

I am not talking crazy changes, I just want simple.

My life has been turned upside down a couple of times in the past 2 years, and there comes a point where enough is enough.  With that said, I am still waiting on results from my Doctor... so here's to hoping I don't get turned upside down again....

I absolutely without a doubt LOVE my blog, and all of my readers (yes YOU!!) and I plan to focus more on this baby.  I am constantly doing things that I never blog about, and need to be better at documenting those things.

So, here is my plan of attack!  I am working on a BIG list of things I need want to have finished up or changed at our house.  I am giving myself ONE year to complete this list, because... drum roll please........   WE ARE DOING THE KITCHEN IN ONE YEAR!!!!   

We decided (with some convincing from a certain person) that we would put off the kitchen remodel for one more year, so that instead of just re-doing what we already have, we are going to add on!  I will get a bigger kitchen!!!  Folks this is crazy exciting news.

I am sure there will be plenty of blood sweat and tears along the way, but if it means no more butt bumping in the kitchen, I am all for it!!

Our best friends are visiting us from California right now, and Wes is pretty savvy when it comes to home construction and repairs.  He has offered to come up next year on his 3 week vacation and help with the remodel!  Oh My and I excited!!!

So until then, I at going to button down the hatches, save money (hahaha  I crack myself up) and finish up 
our punch list of TO DO'S!

Wes was here for 2 days, before he already made an AMAZING repair on our home!!!  Can't wait to share soon!!

Friends are the greatest, and we love this family so much!!  So thank you Kellison's!!!

And here is to a fresh start of a completed, organized and simple life!!!

Carnival Party {With Shine}

Today we were FINALLY able to celebrate our daughters 7th Birthday.  Her actual birthday is on May 4th, but life happens and our attention was needed elsewhere.

However, the original party date that we had to cancel got rained out anyways, so I consider it a blessing in disguise.  Right?

We did a carnival party for my nephew in September, and my daughter had so much fun that she wanted the same thing.  So this mom got creative and came up with ways to add some girly flair. 

Pictures say a thousand words, so please enjoy them.  And if you have any questions about details, please do ask!

Now this momma is exhausted.  Time to take a hot shower, and put my feet up!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

p.s.  I love comments.... just sayin'  ;)

A quick Hello

Hello my dear readers.  I just wanted to pop in to tell you that ever since we left for our family memorial day vacation, my life was turned upside down.  All is well at this point, but as you can imagine, the blog was placed on the back burner.

I have SO many fun things to share with you in the coming days, and will be back very soon with those.

Today is a BIG day in my life.  I HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE!!!!  Yahoo!!  Seems small right??  But I have had none for 4 years now, and am forever thankful to be insured again.  

Tomorrow is my daughters 7th Birthday party and we are doing it up Carnival Style.  I can't wait to share all of the photos with you.

And one more thing before I go.  A friend of mine from school was faced with Breast Cancer last year, and has done amazingly well, but just last week they found out that her 3 year old son has Rhabdomysarcoma.  If you wouldn't mind to take the time and say a prayer for her family it would be so kind.

See you all soon!!

Sick and tired.......... of being {sick & tired)

I promise I am still here!! But my header does say it all. 


WARNING: This post will not be crafty in ANY way, and get's a little personal, so please read on at your own risk!

This is my blog right?  So I can share my feelings about what is going on and it's safe right??  right???

Only kidding, I know there are always those folks that are out there to say negative things, but truly, I am not worried, so nener nener nener come and get me!!  ;) {giggle}

Alright back to what I came for.  Over the last few years my health has seemed to head down hill. So let's take a stroll back to the beginning!

In May of 2005 I worked my buns off to lose weight before my wedding.  And I lost 70 pounds!!  All I did was ate fresh healthy foods, and moved my body more.  No gimmicks, no strict diets, just good healthy food!
