Blogging in 2016

Despite the cough medicine with codeine I took last night, I couldn't sleep. I can't seem to get healthy, now dealing with bronchitis...it's just lovely.

I decided to go back to the beginning of my blog and read. I loved it. The pictures posted with my entries that I hadn't laid eyes on in years, remembering where I was and what God has brought us through...it was just what I needed.

I also realized that I missed blogging.

I first blogged for fun, then as a journal to keep track of the kids, sort of like a scrapbook and then I was stepping into the world of reviewing product, networking and paid advertisement. And then I let my domain lapse and it was harder than I imagined getting things back up and running. I lost all of my following as well as my desire to write.

Life got busy and I decided to only write when I felt prompted to, and that was nice. It was nice to not feel the pressure of keeping up with the blog and just writing occasionally. I realize though, it was was quite the outlet for me...even if it wasn't all super deep or inspiring.

So, I've decided to make it a goal to blog at least once a week and get back to documenting life. I'm hopeful to print my blog into books this next year since I'm not a traditional scrapbooker :)

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 *…
