Monday, already?

This weekend flew by!

Saturday I rested all morning and then cleaned. I am starting to feel better, however, Josh is now feeling bad! But I started him on meds right away. Like I should have done. Hopefully it won't last that long!

Did you know that this coming weekend is the start of our VACATION!! YAY!

I can't wait just to take a break from everything. It will be so nice.

Yesterday was such a blast! We took our Jr High group and the couple who is on our team to Gatlinburg and a Ripley's musuem. It was so much fun and we had tons of laughs!! I will try and upload a pic when I get home. Josh took all the pics :)

Well I have tons of work and school work to do. So see ya tomorrow!!

Happy Blogging!

Dear sickness, GO.AWAY. 
Dear Josh, only 8 days babe!
Dear Vacation, I know these 8 days are going to fly by!
Dear money, why do you disappear so quickly?
Dear Bees, I am so happy you are dead. 
Dear Baby, mommies heart has been thinking of you all week. I love you. 
Dear birth control, one more month my friend that is all. 
Dear ovaries,eggs, and sperm-  if you would ovulate correctly, drop correctly, travel correctly that would be great if you could all work as a team. I liked to be pregnant with our second baby ASAP. Thanks for your corporation. :) 
Dear Josh, I love you even when we argue. Or get frustrated.

My Heart

There are many things on my heart today. Things that God is showing me. So I don't have much to say, at least not right now. Plus this cold medicine is making me a bit -whats the word- woozy? LOL

Anyway, this song is on my heart... He is the only one I NEED


I'm so thankful that I was able to stay at my own home last night!

I'm thankful even though I made a 'C' on my mid-term I didn't fail it.

I'm thankful for my wonderful husband who cleaned up the "bee cemetery"

I'm thankful for best buds

I'm thankful for our jobs

I'm thankful for that the BEES are GONE!!!

I'm thankful that after work I'm going home and taking some meds. Not feeling that great!


Today Im grumpy. And I'm trying hard not to be. After not being in my house since Friday night (that includes our weekend away) I'm ready for my own home and bed. My in-laws have been so gracious. They have housed us and our 2 dogs. And they have fed us. But there is nothing like your own home. It does seem to be that I'm getting a summer cold, or its just allergies. Last night I was able to sleep on an air matress. I know this sounds weird but I find then so comfortable! J does not. :)enough of the complaining.Up date on the bee situation:
Termanex came out and sprayed. Told us that our case was very unusual. Bees usually aren't swarming houses... thank god. So that is all. Have to go to class tonight boo! Wish I could skip :/Ill make it :)

Killer BEES!!

Yes you read that correctly! So, last night Josh and I tackled a swarm of bees in our bathroom. I thought I had seen condensation on the ceiling. I went to BARELY touch it. It cracked. A SWARM of bees emerged. Then the freaking out took place! Josh was a bit freaked out, and when he freaks out ( my rock, passive, calm husband) I tend to really go crazy!! EEeeekkkKK!

They covered out mirror and lights. Just hundreds of them. I'm getting chills even now.

Josh has pictures, but um. I'm not posting because I DON'T want to see them! So sorry.

So at about 1am, after spraying hornet and wasp spray, we decided not to spend the night at our home. Over to the in-laws we go.

However before this we had a great weekend!

Josh, my brother, and I went to Johnson City to visit our cousin and her boyfriend. They have a new apartment. Her first place on her own!! Makes me sad! To me she is still my adorable, beautiful little cousin! (She is still adorable and beautiful!) We brought Pixel wit…

Friday's Letters!!

Dear Friday, YOUR HERE!  Dear Weekend, you are going to be so much fun!  Dear Jess, I can't believe your old enough to be inviting me to YOUR home for the weekend! Ugh I feel old :)  Dear Josh, yeah.. sorry about the rant.  Dear Abby, hope you have fun this weekend. Try to be sociable. I will be back. Promise. Dear Pixel, I'm not sure how you are going to do on a long car ride... we shall see.  Dear HCF, I'm going to miss worshiping with you guys Sunday!!  Dear Precious Baby, I can't wait to get my necklace. And share your name. Love you so much.
 Dear Josh, I love you. The end. :) 
Dear Jesus, Keep me aware. 
Have a great weekend everyone!!

Red Flag!!

Ever been in a situation that looks so innocent. But then something in your sprit is going off like a loud tornado alarm!! Well there have been a few situations like that in my life and as of late a few in my friends lives. You see we go through life some times in a routine and not really realizing what is going on...what is creeping up... PAY ATTENTION

You know I have a rule of thumb, If you have to question intentions, actions, words... step back and pray. DO NOT proceed with out praying.

Psalms 34:4 Pull me from the trap my enemies set for me, for I find protection in you alone.

My protection is from him. You see I believe in Heaven and  I believe in Hell. I believe that there is satan. Not some image of a firey man with a pitchfork, but a true spiritual enemy. 

In John 10:10 it says "The thief comes only to steal and(A)kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."

In Ephesians 4:27 "Do not give the devil opportunity"

In Ephesians 6:12 &q…

Sometimes and Always

I love how God weaves things together. Because of the loss of our precious one I've gotten to know some incredible women.

And they way they have reached out to me. Something that I loved that was said by a dear friend of mine.

 "I do not NEED anyone, I only NEED God. I choose to allow you in my life and share it with me" SQF

 So, even though it may be painful. I'm not going to be counting on certain people anymore. Because frankley they let you down, but God is always faithful...

* Stepping off of soapbox*

Now its time for some fun!

Sometimes... I can not realize by unhealthy behavior Always... try to work on those areas of my life 
Sometimes...I'm not completely honest with a close friend of mine Always... eventually we talk about it
Sometimes... I'm checking facebook ALL day Always... feel horrible about it
Sometimes... I am sensitive to things around me and things people say Always...Cry and pray, then I feel better
Sometimes... I get so sad about our baby that I…

2 months

2 months ago we said good bye
2 months ago No sweet lulibye
2 months ago my worst fears
2 months ago drawing near
2 months ago you slipped away 
2 months ago I'll never forget the way
2 months ago started my journey
2 months ago I'm still hurting

I started writing this yesterday and couldn't finish until this morning. I'm sad. I'm hurting. I'm thankful for the text and messages yesterday. They meant so much! It helped Josh and I through a very difficult day. Thank you again to the ones (you know who are) you reached out to us yesterday <3

We miss our little baby so much. And we have some many questions. However we have peace knowing that God is doing something in our lives... Even though we are suffering through this pain I pray that in some way this is going to be a testimony for HIS glory.

Until tomorrow...

Get Ready to smile...

Patsy Cline (my version)

I had a dream last night that was just not pleasant. And I woke up so angry. I feel in a funk today. I'm going to spend sometime in prayer and reading some scripture. So for your enjoyment I'm posting a video of my karaoke skills! LOL Its so amusing :)

I know dorky right?? LOL Its a guilty pleasure.. Singing karaoke Patsy Cline :) There are some other very funny vids on there of J and my brother heehee

Randomness of LaLa

There is so much going on in my mind today... whoosh.....

so to warn you this maybe a little random :) You forgive me though right?

I need to seriously do a post on the 4th! I have pics and vids to share :) I will try to work on that tonight and hopefully get it posted for tomorrow or at least Saturday LOL - forgiven again?? 

First, I'm seriously loving Professor Sheldon (seriously that's his name). I feel actually privileged to have such a brilliant person to be teaching me. He has studied under some very impressive people and is impressive in his own right. Even though he does go the ENTIRE 4hours of class I feel like I'm really learning. Classes like this make me love being in school. Does anyone remember these??

I've been thinking about the baby.  And no I haven't mentioned much of it for the simple fact I don't want my blog to be all sad. And I'm not sad all the time. But I never STOP thinking about her. I feel bad because some things have taken a ba…
