Thankful Day 7

This is my thankful post from facebook today...

Thankful Day 7 - I'm thankful for my bible! Needed some comforting words and found them...Christ replied "My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak." Yes, I am glad to be weak or insulted or mistreated or to have troubles and suffering, if it is for Christ. Because when I am weak, I am strong. - 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

You don't always have to hold yourself together, God will!!! So what are thankful for today?!

Thankful Day 6 and Election Day

Today's thankful post from facebook...

Thankful Day 6 - I'm thankful for b12 injections, coffee and caffeine. Without them this morning I would look like one of those zombies from the Walking Dead (being totally zoned out and ready to bite someone's head off)! Before you ask, no I'm not on any bath salts! Ha!!! So what are y'all thankful for?!

I also posted this bible verse ...

Thought this was very fitting for Election Day..."Welcome them, even those whose faith is weak. Don't criticize them for having beliefs that are different from yours." - Romans 14:1

Happy Election day y'all!!!

What are y'all thankful for today!!!

Thankful Day 3

This is my thankful post for today from facebook...

Thankful Day 3 - Today I'm thankful for trashy romance novels!!! They're way better to read than to watch the crap that is on TV now. They help me pass the time when I'm waiting in the car line for the boys to get out of school. Plus I'm sure Justin is thankful for them too! Ha! ; ) So what are y'all thankful for!!!

Thankful Month - Day 2

This is my post from facebook for my Thankful Day 2...

Thankful Day #2 - Today I'm thankful for Justin! For some weird reason he loves me. Even though I'm a total mess, have a problem with speaking my mind and I seem to embarrass him often!!! Bless his heart, he eats my cooking even though I know he hates it, doesn't get upset that I don't keep our house spotless and kisses my forehead when he knows I'm falling apart!!! Yep, I'd say that's a lot to be thankful for!!! So what are y'all thankful for?!

Thankful Month - Day 1

Every November on facebook I write what I'm thankful for each day. I decided to add it to my blog, since I've been neglecting it for a while now! Oops!!! Here's today's...

Hattie Prudhomme

Last night was a blast trick or treating w/ the boys, but I have to say one of my favorite parts was when this little girl dressed as a princess came to the door. I gave her some candy and told her how beautiful she looked then she ran back to her momma and told her what I said and she added, "Wasn't that so nice!" It just melted my heart.

We should all give people more compliments and smiles b/c you never know, that person might be having a bad day and need to hear those kind words or see that smile!!! So since today is November 1st (my thankful month) I'm thankful for smiling faces and kind words!!!! What are y'all thankful for?!!!

(Our Halloween costumes!) 

So as I asked in the fb post, what are y'all thankful for today? Happy Thursday y'all!!!

The Happiness Project

A few weeks ago I borrowed this book from the library.

I've seen the blog before so I decided I want to take a gander at it. She had some really good ideas, but I was having trouble at times staying focused on the book. A great idea I got out of the books was to explore what makes you happy! So I decided to make a Top 10 list of things that make me happy (in no particular order)...

1. Country Music
2. Cool weather
3. Good hair days
4. Fresh flowers from the grocery store!
5. Gaudy and big costume jewelry
6. Freshly clean sheets
7. Smelly goodness of candles
8. Long baths that make me look like a tomato when I get out
9. Trashy romance novels
10. Ice cold beer (I mean where you can see the ice in it)

I can come up with a ton more to put on the list, but these are my favorites at the moment!!! So what would you put on your list?!

Oh one last thing...I didn't finish the book. Only made it half way through it and decided I wanted to go back to my trashy romances (duh, that's what makes me happy)!!! But a really good piece of advice I did take away from the book was to never ask Justin what he thought about what I was wearing. He hates when I do that! Either he's going to say he loves my outfit and I think he's lying or he'll say he doesn't like it and I get mad at him! So I vow at this moment to never ask him his opinion about my choice in clothing again! (Ha! Let's see how long that will last!) Happy Tuesday y'all!!!

Disclaimer: Of course my hubby & boys make me the most happiest, but that's a given!!!

Dreaming of Falling

This morning I woke up with the worst anxiety attack I've had in a long time. The worst part was that I couldn't really do anything to calm my nerves because I had kids to get ready for school and I'm still feeling on edge right now even writing this.

So what caused this attack?! I had a horrible dream. It started off that I got into an elevator with two women who looked like they were girlfriends and of course I've never seen them  before or recognized them. Then all of a sudden the the elevator started to jerk and come to a halt. Then it started free falling. The other two women held on to each other screaming and I fell to the floor. I started to see my life flash before my eyes, the boys, Justin and all of us having a good time laughing. Then there was nothing, my mind just went blank and I remember getting mad that here it was that I was about to die and my mind was blank. No memories, no words, nothing to comfort me. Then right before the elevator crashed it came to a stop and one of the women was able to squeeze the doors open and jump out. I was next and then the other woman followed. Then my dream was over and I woke up with this  anxiety attack. UGH!!!

What on Earth does this dream mean and why did it scare the crap out of me? Why did my mind go blank, why couldn't I recall anything? Have y'all every had a dream that caused you anxiety? If y'all have any advice about the dream or what y'all do to help your anxiety help a sista out and share!!!

What I Wore Wednesday!

Okay it's Wednesday and I'm linking up over at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday!

This first outfit I ended up changing out of. The shirt was waaaayyyy to big! In fact most of my clothes are too big. Yay I'm loosing weight, but now I'm in between sizes!

This outfit I wore to go run errands. I don't really like the way the shirt was fitting! Yuck, it looks sloppy!

This is what I wore to the boys baseball practice. We have it every night. UGH! I'm already tired of it. Ha!!!
Hope y'all go check out WIWW and if it's y'alls first time visiting, thanks & hope y'all take a look around!!!
Happy Wednesday Y'all!!!

Best Bathroom Cleaner Ever!!!

OMG! I found the best bathroom cleaner. And yes I found it on Pinterest!!!

All you need is vinegar and blue dawn liquid soap. Put a cup of each in a spray bottle and that's it!!! I cleaned the boys toilet and it got rid of that "boy smell"! I also sprayed it on my glass shower and both bathtubs and let it sit than just wiped it off with a damp rag. Wow! No more soap scum! I've been trying everything under the sun to clean my glass shower and nothing worked, but this seemed to do the trick!!! I'm one happy momma!!!
Hope y'all have a great Tuesday & happy cleaning!!!

35th Wedding Anniversary & House Warming

Wow this weekend went by so fast! Friday night we went out to eat with Justin's family to celebrate his parent's 35th Wedding Anniversary.

We went to a local Mexican restaurant and I was so proud of myself for not having a margarita since I'm on my diet!! It was so hard!!!


Saturday after Justin got home from work, we went to Justin's aunt Lisa's house warming party!

It was so nice visiting with his Mammaw and aunts!!! Love them!

Ethan and Jaxon ended up staying the night over there and had a blast playing with their cousins!

Well besides the little incident on Saturday, we had a great weekend. Very low key!!! 
Hope y'all have a great Monday!!

Not Feeling It Today!

I think Bob Marley said it best...
Today didn't start out on the right note at all! Drama crept it's way into my morning. I just hate it when I'm dragged into a situation that I tried to avoid. I just hate it when I've been blamed for things that didn't happen. Not fair. I really hate with a passion when someone accuses me of being a bad parent and not caring for my children when they mean the world to me. There is nothing in this world that I wouldn't do for all four of my boys. How dare they?! Before you talk about people & point fingers take a long look in the mirror. NO one is perfect!!!

Thanks for listening to my rant. I just needed to vent before I explode!
Hope y'all have a great weekend & that I turn mine around!!!

Pinterest Wins!

I've been having some luck lately with Pinterest!!! These are a few things I've tried & have worked! First were these fish tacos...They were sooooo good. It was the first time I've ever eaten or cooked them. Even Justin liked them & he's picky!!!

Next was this cleaning tip to rid the boys bathroom of that "boy smell"! It was a little messy, but it seemed to get the smell out!

Next was the Hunger Game Trilogy. LOVED IT!!! Justin bought me the books for my birthday (which I have been wanting, but wouldn't buy for myself). I also pinned them to Pinterest a while back too!  I finally finished all three and highly recommend them. I can't wait for the movie to come out in a few weeks!!!

So what have y'all tried out from Pinterest? Was it a win or a fail?!
Hope y'all have a great Friday & weekend!!!

Baseball Season

Yep it's that time of year again! Baseball season! This year I've got three playing.

Jonathan is playing on his high school team and really enjoying it and doing well.

Ethan is playing for the first since t-ball and Jaxon is playing for his first time ever.

So I've been taking Ethan & Jaxon to practice (thank goodness it's at the same location) every night and I had to miss Jonathan's first district game. Hello Mommy Guilt!!!

I've been trying to figure out how on Earth I'm going to make it to a game since they all practice and play at the same time. UGH!!! It's driving me nuts trying figure it all out! At least I have these pictures from Jonathan's game just wish I had really been there!!!

Hope y'all have a great Thursday!!!

What I Wore Wednesday

Okay I'm trying this again!!! I'm linking up over at The Pleated Poppy for her WIWW!

I wore this outfit to run errands.

I love this cute little owl shirt I found at a local store. I'm also wearing my sweater UGGS I got at Goodwill for $20! Holla!!!

This was the outfit I wore out to see a band with some friends.

This is what I wore at the boys birthday party!

I'm loving the fact that my clothes are starting to fit better now that I'm loosing weight! I can't wait to go shopping for smaller sizes!!! If y'all are participating in WIWW leave me a link so I can check out your blogs & thanks for stopping by! Hope y'all have a great Wednesday!!!

Drop Cloth Drapes!

I saw this idea in blogland a while back and I've been meaning to do it. I was in some desperate need for drapes in our dining room after I threw our old ones out because our cat and dogs had too much fun with them. We have a massively tall window and drapes for them are crazy expensive. So this is what I came up with...

I went to Lowes and bought two large painters drop clothes and some curtain ring clip things!

I just spaced the rings out, clipped them to the drop clothes, hung them up, had to trim a little off the bottom and BAM!!! I've got me some drapes!!!

Total cost was around $50! Woohoo! I love them. What do y'all think?!

Hope y'all have a great Tuesday!!!
