Today is the second day of spring, and what do I wake up too? Snow! I don't know about you, but I am so over wintertime. The weekend was beautiful, Makayla and I did lots of walking, a prep for what is to come when I go to work 3-11. It's not the best shift, but, it is what I need to do for my family. I found the good things that come with working it, and Makayla and I will get a lot of time we used to. Also this weekend, I found out that I got into graduate school! It will be a lot of hard work, with now having to balance work, being a mom, school and home life, but, I know I can do it. When we aren't busy at work, and all the work is done, I can do some of my school work there. I can also come home and do work for a little before going to bed, but I also know I can't stay up long because my sweet little babes wakes up no later than 730. Hope you guys have a great day! It's Monday, but hopefully spring is around the corner.
But, here is a picture to remind us that spring is around the corner. This is from my parents' garden.

3 months!


Wednesday, March 9, 2011


This time of year I always have trouble figuring out what I want to give up. This year, I am taking that above and beyond. This year, I am giving up junk food (broad, I know) which includes Girl Scout cookies and soda. I always snack way too much, and now is my chance to kick start my diet. This year however, I am also giving up Facebook. As a matter of fact by the time you are reading this, it will already be deactivated. I spend way too much time "stalking" people of the past or trying to follow what everyone is doing. Now, I can focus on much needed things that need to be done around my home and spend the precious time with my daughter. Will I be back, I don't know yet. My husband says he gives me a week before I go crazy without it, makes me feel like I was addicted to it or something. I usually don't stick to anything for Lent, but this year, this year I want it to be different. I want to succeed in giving up the small sacrifices that I chose. Jesus made the biggest sacrifice for all of us, to give up Facebook and junk food seems kind of trivial to me. So, if you get a chance today, please say a prayer for me that I can stick with my sacrifices.

On another note, My cousin Autumn stopped by for a visit yesterday with a surprise visitor. I had no idea who it was and it was killing me. Well, much to my amazement it was my cousin....

SABRINA!! I haven't seen her in like 6 years, so the fact that she wanted to see the sweet babes was awesome! We hung out for like an hour and it was great seeing her. We talked about a trip down there to visit, but not until Makayla can enjoy Disney (we are thinking about Jan 2013).
Well, I better get ready for work. Have a great Hump Day! Happy Ash Wednesday!

Happy Spring

I don't have a lot of time to blog this morning, but I wanted to share this adorable picture of Makayla before I went to work. As you can see by the picture, she is ready for spring, summer or well just better weather!

sorry for the bad picture quality, I used my camera phone.

Happy Wednesday!
