Day 14- A picture of you and your family

My Family
Olivia's School Halloween Party 2010

These two are my WORLD!! They complete me and make my world go round. Olivia had a blast at her party walking around and talking to people and talking with all her little friends. She was the CUTEST little butterfly EVER!  She makes me the HAPPIEST mommy in the WHOLE world!! She's cuddled up with her daddy now and we are getting ready to go to bed. We got our FIRST REAL booboo tonight. She fell and hit RIGHT by her eye.. SO thankful it wasn't in her eye. She has a knot and it has some blood. Scared Mommy and Daddy!! But she was laughing and running around afterwards.. Looks like we have a 4th monkey in the bed tonight. Tucker and Olivia both sleeping with us tonight. Tucker went to the vet today too because he wasn't acting normal and got some medicine. I hope my two babies get well before Sunday!! :) I'm SO blessed beyond words. I can't thank God enough for what he has given me!! Everyone have a GREAT Friday!! Loves! 

Day 13- A letter to someone who has hurt you recently

I don't really have anyone who has really "hurt" me lately. I've been hurting in different ways just emotionally and mentally. I have a huge piece of me that wants to be with Olivia and stay home with her.. (I know VERY unlikely this can happen due to MONEY) Imagine that something that always seems to cause issues for people. I try to look at the positive side of everything at least I have a good paying job and we are finally paying off debt and being able to get new things that we've needed for awhile.. Carpet and a hot water heater for follow!! (SO excited) I'm just hurting because of my own feelings.. I know ALL mommys probably go through this, but it sure STINKS. I pray everyday for God to grant me a new journey in life that will lead me to be home or somewhere with Olivia that will allow us to still pay bills... I'm not going to give up until I feel happy. I'm headed to the gym to sign up for a membership to hopefully get motivated and feel like i'm actually living. Somedays I feel just like a big ol BLAH... I need to get some motivation in my life. Starting Monday at 5:30am I will start working out for an hour each morning to make myself loosen up and get less stressed!! I'll keep everyone posted on how that works out for me.
I just want to say thanks to family and friends that have been here for me through everything and listen to me as I've made one decision in the past week to stay where i am and not jump off into the dark with a new job that would have allowed me to be with Olivia, but the pay was not going to get the bills paid and we would have been struggling I didnt' feel like God gave me the signs to take it, but to have PATIENCE and he WILL provide. I'm just waiting :)

Everyone have a GREAT day!! XoXo

Day 12- How you found out about Blogger and why you made one

I've known about the blogging world for awhile and when i was younger I had a blog i would call it but it was called xanga. I wish i still could read that old thing but i believe it was shut down. I had recently been reading Katie's blog and wanted to start something like hers to keep up with the progress of Miss Olivia. I want to share life with her of how things were when she was little. Right now as i write she is walking around the living room playing with her daddy. We are watching the Cowboys game and Romo got hurt and broke his clavicle. :( Things aren't looking so hot for our Cowboys!! Bummer!
As I sit here and listen to Daddy and O play I just Thank God for a wonderful husband and dad.. What more can i ask for? There are so many dads in the world that don't help out and do their parts and thankfully i got a great one. I'm SO SO SO thankful.
It's about my bed time because my early mornings are going to start soon. I want to get up earlier and start my day not in a whirlwind. I want to be able to get up and take my time and be relaxed starting the day.
I'm so thankful I have a great job, family, and friends!!

You are NEVER promised tomorrow-- Live Life to the FULLEST!!!

Day 11- Another picture of you and your friends


I love these two people more than anything in the whole world. They keep me going day to day and make my world go around. They both can make a bad day better as soon as i see them. I'm so blessed with an amazing husband that supports me and stands behind me always. I have a super sweet daughter who gives the best kisses EVER. Although she's a spit fire and keeps me on my toes I wouldn't change my life for anything. God has truly blessed me and is continuing to bless us each day. Thank You Lord.

Day 10- Songs you listen to when you are Happy, Sad, Bored, Hyped, Mad

I like all kinds of music. I dont just listen to a certain type it just depends on how i'm feeling. When I'm happy i like to listen to upbeat stuff country or rap.. When i'm sad i usually listen to country of some sort usually the songs that talk about issues or sadness. When i'm bored i usually listen to pandora.. Jason Aldean, Our God, or just a random mix.
When i'm hyped i love rock n roll or rap and when i'm mad i just turn up any good beat song and just JAM!

I'm not a pick music person.. i listen to whatever usually. :)

Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why

Short Term Goals for October...
       My main goal is to be a GREAT Wife and Mom!! My Family is my number ONE! I want to be the BEST for the both of them and FOCUS on that ALWAYS!!! Another goal I have (or we have) as a family is to pay off debit we've accumulated in the past... We are SO close and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.. The next thing we plan to do is start SAVING! :) Finally.. Money isn't everything, but it sure helps when you have some extra here and there..
      I work on not getting SO stressed out, but that's not working so good for me with my programs at work just starting i've been SUPER stressed, but i think i'm on the downhill slide of that now. Thank God!
I hope everyone is having a good beginning of Fall, it definitely got chilly out REAL quick!! I'm loving the weather and LOVING life.. <3
