Time


Parenting can be a live comedy!  Daily I find humor in the little things that arise during our day!  Kids have a way about bringing laughter and joy when everything else seems complicated and overwhelming.  It is true, when you become a parent you really don’t have a dull moment in your life no more. Always expect the unexpected, especially if you have a toddler at home.  They will definitely bring the best out of us parents when they decide to get into mischief.   It is a priveledge and joy to watch my kids grow, try things, experience life, and embrace the difficult trials because memories are being made.  Enjoy your little ones, take time to notice and compliment the good.  Time is not a luxury it is a gift that should be taken with care!  

On the Road Again!

Today we are back on the road heading back home.  It was a fun vacation spending time with family and friends.  Can believe school is starting this week 😬.  This summer has flown by!  

CrAzY Weeks!

I know I have been out of touch and haven’t been blogging recently.  My schedule has been extremely crazy recently due to Church Camp (which was AMAZING!),  selling and throwing Jamberry and Avon parties, planning for VBS (vacation Bible school), three birthdays this week, and the list goes on.  Yes, as a parent we tend to forget that time is not a luxury *SIGH* but I am here to say no matter how busy you stay always try to stay focused on the positive.  It is an uphill battle sometimes but always remember it may be a challenge to climb to the top of that hill but once at the top its an easy slide down.

No matter how crazy your days and weeks are you are AMAZING.  If you haven’t heard that by anyone else then I will say it.  As a parent you work hard to provide the best possible care for your child.  You stride to make sure they have the best no matter what the cost is.  Remember you are their hero even if everyone else views you differently.  YOU. ARE. GREAT. 🙂

Shirley and Ryder

I am dedicating this post to my daughter Shirley and her boyfriend Ryder!


For two years my daughter and Ryder have been boyfriend and girlfriend!  The only time they see each other is camp but ALL year around they stay devoted to each other!  It is the cutest little romance!  I just love the innocence behind their little fling!  They are so inspiring and are both such sweethearts!  Church Camp 2016!!!

Taco Soup…Yum!

Taco soup has become a family favorite or at least with me and the kids it has.  I think I have driven my husband, Bj, crazy because we have had it so much recently.  It is a great soup for the winter though, especially on the very cold nights!!!  Here is the recipe if you would like to give it a try or just to have the recipe on hand!

Here is a simple recipe that I find very convenient. TACO SOUP!!!!

I normally get the following:

2 cans of light or dark kidney beans
2 cans of corn
2 cans of tomatoes
1 can of rotel tomatoes
1 packet of ranch powder
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 lb of ground beef

First you need to brown the meat! Then you add the rest of the ingredients. Put the temperature on about 3 and stir. Once hot you can begin to eat or you can let it cook all day. Hope you enjoy!!!

Morning CrAzY!!

….Mornings…..starting to wonder if it is a trend but mornings….Ugh! Summer has begun, kids are out of school, and the fun has just started. Today I came to the realization I tend to forget even in the crazy how precious every moment is. With the television noise blaring in the background, the baby crying, the three year old screaming “cereal” as he is running throughout the house only wearing his diaper…Yep those are the moments we take for granted. I take for granted but shouldn’t. I forget as many other parents out there do that no matter how crazy your day can get there is always beauty in every moment. One day I am going to look back on what I know as ‘Morning CrAzY’ and laugh because overall they are funny and beautiful moments that you as a parent share with your kids. Trust me one day you will wish you could go back to those insane moments when they are all grown up.
