About Me

My photo
I am now a 36 year old widow. Not sure how much things can change or how much they can change but let me tell you it can happen in the blink of an eye. The rug has been pulled from under me and I am struggling to pick myself and my kids up. I feel like sometimes, we have to be ready for when our plans and God's plans change what we think is going to happen. I am hopeful that our family's future includes Mark, my beloved husband, as much as we can.


Chris is 12! Brooklyn is 7! Preston is 6! and Kyler is 2!

Weekly challenge #3

Post something about a hobby you do or would like to get into. Post pictures if you can, you never know what you could learn from someone else!
I have been working on digiscrapbooking for a while now.  I love doing it, I did start on paper for Chris several years ago but this is much easier for me to to.  I have posted below some pages and I have a new one I did last night that I love and another one I did to go with the boys will be boys theme.  I will post more all week, when I do make a new page.  This one is fun for me :)

Weekly Challenge #2

This week's challenge is to write about someone who inspires you.  I have found some of the biggest and smallest people inspiring.  Lately, not much has inspired me because I feel so down about our situation off and on.  I mean I realize we are better off than some, we have a roof over our heads and food in our tummies.  But thinking of inspiration and who inspires me I would have to say today that would be my mom.  She is always doing what is right and what needs to be done, not always with support.  She has helped with my kids while I was working, and when I have needed it off and on.  My sister passed away and she has her children, raising them.  She takes my nephews on a regular basis, and she is always good to them no matter how she is feeling.  She also works at Home Depot and dis a scout leader, she still manages to cook and clean and make sure all in her charges are taken care of.  She is not ever lacking in the patience department.  This inspires me, makes me want to do better with my home, kids, spouse etc.  So to my mom, my inspiration I would like to say thank you being such a wonderful example to me.  I love you......

Pictures of the bathroom now......

Ugh I couldn't get the picture of the shelves to come out as green as it really is.  Anyway I was thinking still of repainting the bathroom.  Any color ideas?

Challenge for the week!

Is to write or post pictures about something new or exciting that is going on in your life or your family's life.
I don't have a ton going on that is exciting for anyone but me LOL. I am working on new decor for my bathroom. I am trying to figure out what color I want to repaint it or if I just want to touch up the color that is there. But right now I have added a new cupboard that I ordered and still waiting on the new shower curtain before I decide on a color.

So I will take actual pictures when I get this done!

Brooklyn's Birthday

Went off without a hitch!  She loved everything about it, the decorations which are in her room now, and of course her presents.  She didn't want to play any party games this year, guess she is still too young.
