Thank you for all of the birthday wishes. I can’t even hardly begin to believe that we are already in March.
Speaking of March I am so ready for Spring. Jack Frost has really shown his arse this year and I am over it. We’ve been teased with a few days here and there and that just highlights the fact that Jack is indeed a hater.
The laundry room is practically completed except for a few décor items. I need some curtains and a few more pictures to hang on the wall and I will do the reveal. I found these cabinet pulls at Hobby Lobby and fell in love. Wait until you see how they tie into the space.
Since I’m about finished with the space I now feel comfortable moving on to the kitchen. Ugh. I keep telling y’all picking paint colors to me is tantamount to making a life decision, as if I can’t paint over it if I don’t like it.
My children are growing like weeds. Lawd, how do people with more than 2 children handle the seasons changing and buying new clothes. I’e been watching my coupons like a hawk waiting on the perfect time to swoop in and rack up on the Spring items that go on sale. If they can hold on for a few more weeks without looking like the Incredible Hulk in their jeans I’ll be one happy Mama.
We’re heading to Miami next week for a little vacation. My father is coming to stay with the children. I can’t remember the last time the Mr. and I were able to go away without them…that might be a never have happened. I’m on the countdown. I guess I should start thinking about what I am going to take with me. Warm weather and sun….good thing I’m leaving the babies here. I have a reason to come back home.
I am pretty much obsessed about the décor of the outside spaces of the house. I suppose that is because at some point the weather will break and I want nothing more than to spend my days outside on the back porch, the front porch or in the garden. I just want to be outside sipping on a little Sangria and I need my spaces to be right. I’ll be working on those at the same time as the kitchen. Wish me luck.
Speaking of warmer weather, I’m lightweight worrying about what I am going to do with the children for summer break.
What’s up in your neck of the woods? Are you up to your neck in snow? Who’s ready for Spring fashion? What are you doing with your children for the summer?
How was Thanksgiving?
We laid low over here. As you can probably tell I failed miserably at NaBloPoMo this year. It wasn’t all my fault. Our internet went out..as in Charter had to come out here and do something to the line so I blame Charter that I wasn’t able to finish the challenge. To be honest I’ve been struggling with blogging for the past month or so. I just don’t know if I’m really into it any more, or if I just need to take a break or just take it back to the day when I didn’t care about all of the other stuff that came along with it other than having people genuinely come here and interact. Quietly LaShawn was all up in my head when she wrote this post
Anywho! Thanksgiving was great around these parts. I cooked a little sumthin’ sumthin’, family brought over a little sumthin’ sumthin’ and we enjoyed each other as family should. We hosted at our house so the refrigerator needs to be cleaned out. I just don’t even want to think about that part…ugh.
I didn’t hit up any Black Friday places except Target and I didn’t get what I came for but after reading about the aftermath of some of the activities on Black Friday to be honest this year was probably the last year I will be headed out. I am coming to realize it really isn’t that serious….We’ll see. I say that every year!
So we finally got an Elf on the Shelf this year. She has been named Bella and I won’t tell you how thrilled I am that she is a little chocolate drop like my Addison.
Lately I’ve been finding myself riding in the car without the radio playing. I’ll be far entrenched in my thoughts before I realize that I am riding in silence and at that point I choose to let my thoughts supercede the noise of the radio.
As I was riding alone today in silence it hit me how extremely blessed I am. While my life isn’t perfect, I have finally reached a point in my life where I want for nothing and that statement has absolutely nothing to do with material things. I briefly flashed back to very hard times in my life when I was pretty sure that God had left me dangling but I held on to my faith because that was my only connection to something good when everything around me seemed to be going wrong.
I’ve told some of my story here, you think you know but you have NO idea. If God can bring me from a place of sorrow and darkness into a place of abundance and light He can do the same for you.
I’m in my feelings this evening. Can’t you tell! Keep trusting. He is faithful….If anybody knows, I know. Just make sure you are giving Him something to work with!
Y’all know I don’t normally participate in that many link ups but when Ask Away Friday was brought to me by Brittnei I though why not. I love reading other posts like these and for some reason I love to answer questions about myself so I am giving this a whirl. Not to mention it’s NaBloPoMo and this is easy and fun content.
My partner is Brittnei. I had to swap questions with her so make sure to head over to her blog to get her answers to my Ask Away Friday questions. If you want to link up head over The Real Housewife of Caroline County to join in the fun.
