Walking into Chick-fil-A, I give myself the pep talk … Grilled chicken salad and a bottle of water…..grilled chicken salad and a bottle of water….grilled chicken salad and a bottle of water…. I stand in the lunch hour line…Grilled chicken salad and a bottle of water…I arrive at the counter and the friendly looking guy in the grease-stained cap asks the dreaded question, “What can I get for you today?” I open my mouth “Grilled—ya know what? Never mind, I’ll take the number nine. Go ahead and made that a large. Oh, and would you mind throwing in one of those chocolate chip cookies to go? Ok. Thanks. Read More
Every morning after breakfast, I lay the baby down for her morning nap then the other two kids and I snuggle on the couch for reading time. This usually consists of a little reading lesson for Jovie, then she and I take turns reading through a pile of books, while Jace sits back and enjoys the stories. 😉 Read More
Am I the only one that has a basket full of yarn taking up space in a closet? Every once in a while I’ll pull it out to do a crochet project, but what inevitably happens is a barrage of children wanting to twirl it around, unravel it’s colorful balls, and begging me to make ‘something fun’ with it.

Good Morning! How did you sleep last night? …Me? Oh, thanks for asking… 😉
I slept pretty good, when I was sleeping. Haha. The only thing that would have made it better was if I got a little more. But hey, that’s the story of my life right now.

“Better to live in the desert than with a quarrelsome and nagging wife.” Proverbs 21:19
I don’t know why, but this proverb makes me giggle a little, every time I read it… Are there days Mr. Coppertop would rather be in a waterless dust storm, parched from the heat, and in a barren-wasteland than be in my presence? Read More
Have you ever gotten in a funk because you’ve been cooped up in the house for too long? Possibly because of sick kids, an injury, or a week of too much snow, you find yourself moping around with ever increasing cabin fever needing a pick me up… Read More
We have two adorable, spunky daughters. Jovie and Jenna are still pretty small, but we are doing the best we know how to instill our love in their hearts. We want them to know that they are a cherished gift to our family and that they are loved by God, himself. <3
Last week our sweet friends lost their three-month-old baby son. Having a daughter only a couple months older, we felt this very close to our hearts. While we cannot undo their grief, we can learn from their story. And if there is one thing to be done today, it is to hold, love, and cherish… Read More
With the new year at hand, I’ve got goals on the mind… One of these goals is to invest in a few practical items that would cut down on our waste, and possibly even save us a little money in the long run. After a quick inventory, it was easy to see that a lot of our waste comes from disposable items that if we thought a little smarter, we could either do without or find a better alternative.
As our kids are getting older it feels like time is flying faster and faster. I can barely remember how old I am each year, let alone all the events and special little moments that occurred throughout our year. Remembering is becoming more of a challenge as my days get busier. Read More
