Miscellany Monday

we had a fabulous weekend. although the sniffles are still hanging around, everyone's moods have improved and that's always a good thing.

 Friday I got to sleep in until 10:00am. Yes, you read that right. My sweetie let me sleep until I wanted and boy did that feel good. That evening we got to go on a date! It had been way too long since we'd had a solo date night and our fabulous family friends watched the boys and let us borrow their convertible for the occasion. It was almost 80 degrees and sunny and it was perfect. We took the long road to our destination, ate fabulous food, had fabulous dessert and I actually ate an entire meal, sitting down! And we didn't talk about anything heavy, we just ate and enjoyed each others company and it was perfect. 

Saturday our friend built these garden beds for us! This will be my first attempt at gardening, and I'm planning on zucchini, tomatoes, pole beans, strawberries, peppers and herbs. Wish me luck!

I wrote a Mother Letter here. It's part of a link-up in conjunction with the release of this fabulous ebook. Such a great story, go check it out, write your own if you want and link it up!

Last week my blogging friend Rachel started a series called 10 Days of Intentional Parenting. It's been amazing, and has had a great impact on me. This week she finishes it off with days 6-10. It's not too late to join in! Head over and check it out, you will be so glad you did!

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 *…
