Celebrating Our Time Together With JORD

I don’t often talk much about one of the most important people in my life.  He was there before the boys and he is one of my biggest cheerleaders.  He is my companion and my partner for life.  This is Chase, my husband. This year marks a special one in our marriage.  Like many (dare I say ALL) marriages, ours is not easy.  We fight, we argue, we complain but we love.  Through it all we love.  Last year we were coming out of one of the hardest years of our marriage yet, through our faith in the Lord, we have come out of it stronger.  Our relationship is by no means perfect, we are still learning, but keeping God at the center has brought us to a new, more understanding place.  We are now coming into our best year of marriage. November 20, 2017 will mark our seventh anniversary and I never really thought much about the seventh year until recently.  Seven, in biblical terms, is a significant number.  Many sources I’ve found say that it symbolizes completion or divine perfection.  We are by no means divine or perfect and we certainly aren’t complete, but I love knowing that it…

We Always Make Cookies

In Mommyhood

Last year, during a small group, we talked about traditions.  As I thought about it, I couldn’t think of anything that was specific to our family and that made me a little sad.  It also made me determined to start at least one!  We were then directed to think about them less as “traditions” and more of “we always…” statements.  Then I got to thinking about what I could do that would be very specific to me and my boys.  What will they remember years from now, tell their kids about, and possibly carry on. So what I came up with was cookies.  For every holiday, we make cookies in fun shapes, decorate them, and enjoy!  It’s pretty ironic too since my mother never fails to recall this one story of when I was younger and I told her that I was going to be a “real mom” and make cookies for my kids.  *facepalm* I mean, come on…I promise I wasn’t always that awful! I finally found a recipe that I didn’t have to completely make from scratch and works so well.  The first time I tried it, my ghosts turned out a little portly and my pumpkins looked…

Just stopping by to say I might be a little MIA this week.   Why you ask? It’s Spring Break!  But I thought you were a stay-at-home-mom? I am.  But I teach dance at night and I get a whole week off!   AND my mom is a teacher and she has the whole week off! ALSO, my grandmother is in town.  She lives in Oregon so I haven’t seen her since I was 15! Yeah…I even scrapbooked when I was 15!

My First Garage Sale

In Uncategorized

As an adult that is.   Man, those things are stressful!  And I hate to say that since I spent most of the day inside taking care of LM.  But we literally threw this thing together in about a day.  We planned to have it a week ahead of time but didn’t “get to gettin’” on it until the night before. (read: worked til 2AM and the sale was at 8)  I’m a person who likes to plan and be organized.  The Hubster? Not so much.  Now I’m not saying anything bad about my love, he works very hard so that I can stay home with LM.  But when he wants to do something…it’s NOW! No matter how much planning needs to be involved.  (This has worked out to my advantage in the past…we only dated for 2 months before we got engaged!)  To add to it, we did this with his sister and her husband.   Brother + Sister + Last Minute G-sale = *&%$#@@#$ (catch my drift?) Again, I love them dearly….but brother and sister and stress just don’t go together. In the end, it was a good time, we made some money, and we got to spend…
