So I totally missed Miscellany Monday...oh well. I have my little cousin here for the week and we are just having lots of fun!

I'm really bored with my blog. It just doesn't look the way I want it to. I'm just not crafty enough to design my own and the ones I really like cost money. Anybody have good ideas? Or places to go for free designs? I've been to so many places, but I just haven't seen the "right one"

It's pretty hot/warm here so we've been in the water this week and will be again tomorrow! What are you all up to?!


  1. Do you have an idea of what you want your blog to look like? One thing that was helpful for me was thinking about how I wanted to feel when I visited my blog and what message I wanted to convey with my header and background, you have an awesome blog name! Maybe if you think of something that conveys the message of your title. It can be hard to want to post if you are not happy with your blog that way it is. : )

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care!
When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better!
I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!

Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence Kit! Um, yummy.

It includes *…

I Believe He is Faithful

This past Tuesday I got a phone call from our caseworker that was nothing short of a gut punch. After hanging up the phone I started sobbing right there in the Pilot gas station parking lot. I had just had my hair cut for the first time in over a year, and was coming off of weeks of illness and texted Trevor that I was going to drive around for a bit and enjoy some quiet and fresh air. I pulled off to grab a bite from good ol Taco Bell when the phone call came through.  The words she spoke were the last things we wanted to hear- in fact they were the things we’ve been praying we would not hear this entire past year. It seemed unfathomable, and in fact is quite ludicrous which she herself admitted to thinking as well. I cannot imagine working for a system that so blatantly traumatizes children who have been victims of trauma already. It is hard enough as a foster parent to watch this happen. I cried, I texted Trevor I couldn’t come home until she was in bed, that I had gotten a phone …
