Miscellany Monday

Click here: lowercase letters (because I can't figure out how to have you just click the picture....)

1) My sweetie is taking today, tomorrow and half of Wednesday off! We've had an insane week and I am SO glad to get to spend some good time with him these next few days!! Planning on watching movies, resting, and decorating for fall!

2) Trevor got to sing and play this past weekend with Don Moen and the Michael Bahn Band. Totally old school worship, and not typically my style :) But the concert was great and Don is a super nice and funny guy! I love watching my man up there on stage...I am so dang proud of him!

3) 17 weeks today! ALMOST half way there! Feeling great lately! I tried to take a belly pic this morning, but I look just plain fat in them we'll try again another day :)

4) I took Jack to the train park yesterday while Daddy was stuck at church all day. We had an absolute blast! Rode the trains twice, shared a sno-cone, he had his very first hot dog and we watched the model trains forever! It's such a neat place, and it's totally free (except the food, which is super cheap) and it's all run by volunteers. Jack talks about it for the rest of the week each time we go. "Mommy trains" "Had fun" "Train in the tunnel" :)

Have a happy Monday! Link up with Carissa for your own Miscellany Monday!

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 …

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 *…
