Cafe Discussion & What I am Loving

our beautiful little journey
i’m so very excited to be taking part in the (very first!) cafe discussion going on at
what’s the purpose of cafe discussions? I’ll let Noelani explain:
Well, it’s a place for us ladies to gather in together, and share our thoughts and emotions. Every two weeks, there will be a new topic of discussion being brought to the coffee table. A place for us to pour our hearts out, exposing our emotions. A place for us to meet new ladies, who share the same views and beliefs … who we can relate to.
These topics will include things on – parenting, marriage, Military, our Faith, etc. The first topic of discussion? What’s the best part about being a parent?
I hope you can join us, and I’m so looking forward to hearing your responses!  

What I am Loving…

1. Being apart of Cafe Discussion, of course!

2. TOMS! I have no clue why I haven’t gotten these sooner?! They are so very comfortable and the best part… they give a pair to a child in need!!

3. This little scrunched up face!

4. If I don’t have someone to watch the girls while I get my hair done… my sister-in-love comes to mi casa 😉 !!

5. This man & these girls!

6. Gods protection over me and my family. It never fails that almost every week on the way to taking Raychel to school there is a car crash. I am so thankful for Gods protection on me and my family <33

7. I wrote to my kids!! {{post on my kids here}}

Randoms and Blogs I Love

 
~Why is it that the day your house is a mess and you don’t feel like getting ready, your husband decides to bring his buddies over without warning you?! Really?! Ahhh!

~Yesterday, I went to Safeway and bought a white Zinfandel. Normally in Safeway they are stricked on carding you if you look under 30… well… I guess I look pretty darn old {note: 30 is so not old but when you are in your mid 20’s and already worried about wrinkles and someone doesn’t card you, then you think… man! Do I really look that much older!}.

This is right after Safeway. Maybe its just the hat that makes me look older? I hope! haha!
{Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a women who fears the Lord is to be praised PROVERBS 31:30}

~Don’t you just love it when there is tons of traffic and you are flying by in the carpool lane?! I know I do!! It makes me feel like am VIP lol!

~I love it when I hear my girls playing together and laughing hysterically. Melts my heart!

~I am so loving the X Factor!! I like it so much better then American Idol. I don’t even know if I want to watch American Idol anymore, because compare to X its boring.

~I am going to order this book on amazon “The Power of a Praying Wife.” Cant wait to start reading it!

~AWE…. heart melting again! I have little Madison right by me on her Bumbo and she is falling asleep.
 Aww my sweet little angel!

NOW to blogs I

Of course I love my girlfriends blogs…. Meagan, Marissa and Brandi

This blog, is an Extraordinary mom who I look up to {besides my mom, of course!}. She is just an amazing women full of love for her 4 boys, not only that, she is a women who fears the Lord and desires to follow the path God has set for her and her family.

When this girl posts her posts I can not wait to read them. I always look forward to reading what God is doing in her life and in other peoples. I always get encouraged by reading her posts! She is a beautiful mom to 3 little ones, and she also takes the most beautiful pictures.

This blog, I just found out that we have the same name! Craziness!! There is not a lot of people that I know that have the same name. On her blog she goes by a different name, which is, pearl. She has the Prettiest style that I just LOVE!! and she is such a gorgeous girl! She also has the cutest little boy and she also dresses him in the cutest clothes!

This girl is awesome! She just graduated with her masters degree in counseling! Jaimee and her husband have been married for 6 years, but you would think they are newlyweds! Jaimee is such a sweet, fun, and loving person that I wish we were neighbors. She would be so much fun hanging out with! 

Casey, always has great words that are encouraging and inspiring! And she takes the most prettiest pictures of her sweet little girl.

Another blog that reminds me of Casey’s is Haley. Haley is expecting her second baby! She has a sweet little girl and now she is expecting a boy! 

The newest blogs I am following and love are… Schilling Times and Fast Forward Girl!

I have so many other blogs I follow and love, but these are few of my fav! God bless!

“MY LIFE IN A NUTSHELL”

Dirty House = Stressed Out Mama

  I dislike having my house a mess! It stresses me out! I feel gross, disorganized, and sometimes I cant enjoy playing or doing things with my girls if the house is a mess.  
Today, I was busy all morning that I didn’t even have time to make the bed. The first thing I do when I get out of bed is make the bed… and… today… it just didn’t happen. Not only did i not make the bed i also had clothes that needed to be folded and put away since last night!
The girls and I were running late to take Raychel to school that It didn’t give me a chance to pick anything up around the house or make the girls beds.
Yesterday, the girls cousins came over and they were all having a blast playing in the play room that it looks like it was struck by a tornado! Did I mention that I dislike leaving my house when its a mess? Ugh… I really do!

After dropping Raychel off at school, I got gas, I then headed to Safeway {nursed Madison in the car before heading to Costco}and Costco with Oceana and Madison. Once I got all the groceries I headed back home to put the groceries in their place then off to pick Raychel up. We got Raychel, we headed home and I got lunch ready for all of us and the hubs {he always comes home for lunch ;)}, nursed madi, THEN the cleaning began!
I had to stop cleaning for a few minutes to give this girl some attention. She wanted me to take a picture of her so she can show daddy that she is, not looks, but that she is a princess! lol!
After I finished cleaning I could hear the Hallelujah chorus!!
{when i seen this picture i though… “Oh! there is the other black sock under the bassinet!” haha! }

Now, i can enjoy some QT with my girls!!! {note: Madison was sleeping the whole time while I was cleaning, and right when i got done it was feeding time!} off to go play with my girls before making dinner at 5:30 😉 
PS I love my girls… they come first before any dirty dishes, laundry, messy house, etc. There will always be dirty dishes to clean, laundry to be fold and put away, toys to be picked up, but never again will my girls be this age… so with that being said there has and will be times that I have and will leave the house a mess to play or take them out for some fun QT! {then ill rush back home and clean like a crazy women lol!}
