Miscellany Monday

Link up with Carissa

It is so definitely Monday. I woke up feeling sick...thank you little snotty nosed gremlins (shown below) for sharing.

Last night we said good-bye to one of our dearest friends, who is really more like family. He's having to go back to the U.K. (where is he from) and we are hoping it's just for a short time. It was an emotional night, for sure. We had our last Worship Concert for awhile and I got to go (thanks to some lovely ladies who watched the boys so I could just go and not worry about them) and it was incredible. I'm constantly blessed my the ministry my husband does and the way in which he does it.

Also, I did a little swappin' and over on the right you'll see a button for Baby Making. She's a fellow twin mama of boys who turned ONE just this last week and are they ever adorable?! So, go check out her blog (and you'll see my button on her site too!) 

This Friday my guest is actually our photographer from Lacie Lauree and she's doing a giveaway that even non-local peeps can enter!!! So stay tuned for that.

I'm wanting to do some fun stuff for St. Patrick's Day, what are you planning?

Oh...and anyone else going to see Hunger Games on opening day?? I would fall asleep at the midnight showing, so my friend and I are going the next morning :)
They are some of the best books I've read, I couldn't put them down!!

So, that's my Monday folks. Oh wait, I forgot to brag...I ran 5 miles with my friend on Saturday. Yep. It was slow (and I'm still apologizing to her) but we did it and man, it felt good.

Hope you all have a fabulous Monday!

  6. 5 miles! yahoo! You rock. I hope you guys feel better. The sickies are NO BUENO!

  7. Decide on how much money you are willing to spend when it comes to event services. Suppose you have a limited budget, it is better to opt for volunteer event security personnel, though paying for security services is a much better option.Konnex

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 *…
