Default Post

I've been a little absent from my blog lately (oops). I guess that's because I haven't had anything huge to blog about. I was looking over some of my past posts and I discovered that random posts have become my default. So, here's another random one. Sorry.

Exactly 2 weeks from today we leave for our 5th Anniversary cruise! WOO HOO! Again, as much as I'm looking forward to this, I am sad about leaving Elliana for 5 days. At least she'll be with people she loves and knows well. I'm so thankful that Elliana has such amazing grandparents on both sides of the family, and that they live so close. I know Ellie will feel right at home.

Um yeah... I think this looks like fun.

I had forgotten how much I drive myself absolutely crazy when I'm trying to get pregnant. I get to this place where I convince myself that I'm pregnant. I look for all of the signs, and I even begin to experience symptoms (psychosomatic anyone?). I was 95% sure that I was pregnant last month. I wasn't. I'm okay though, because as much as I want to be pregnant, I don't think it would've been very much fun to be in your first trimester on a cruise. I can tell though that every month from here on out is getting emotionally harder for me.

Yes, I watched the Bachelorette this week. I'm not sure what I will think of this season. If this season disappoints me as much as last season, I may just have to be done with the show (probably not). ;) I'm just curious, for any of you that watch the show, do you like Ali? I'm not sure what to think of her. Although I do have to admit that she is beautiful.

I watched the American Idol finale tonight. I was happy to see Lee win, I wanted him to win for the last several weeks. However, we're way past due for a female winner. I actually cried when all of the former Idols sang the farewell song for Simon. Yes, I realize this makes me a huge dork! American Idol just isn't going to be the same without Simon. Between losing Simon, and not being too thrilled with this last season, I really don't know if I'll be interested in watching next year.

In this post, I mentioned that Elliana was beginning to show signs of having a girly side. Ha! Let me just say that her girly side has erupted like a volcano! In the last two weeks Ellie has taken anything that has a strap on it, and carried it around on her shoulder like a purse. She's also spent hours taking her necklaces on and off, and she just LOVES when we put bows in her hair. Just this afternoon Ellie kept handing Caleb bows to put in her hair. Take a look at the proof:

Oh, this girl cracks me up. Even though she's quite girly, she definitely has a tomboy side too. I always thought that when she hung out with her cousins (my sister's kids), that she would spend time with Devyn or Reagan, her girl cousins. Instead, she spends her time with Hudson. They chase each other around and giggle the whole time. I guess she wants to keep me guessing.

We have a very busy Memorial Day weekend coming up. We're celebrating Caleb's 28th birthday, helping with/ going to my brother-in-law's College graduation reception (he lives out of state and he's in town to have a reception for all of his Colorado friends and family), visiting with a friend that I haven't seen in years (she's in town for a wedding), and we're possibly going to the family cabin. Although it's going to be crazy, it should be a lot of fun. I hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend too.

I LOVE those pictures of Ellie!!! Oh my gosh, she is getting so pretty!

And Ali, I think I like her but I'm not sure yet either. It bothere me how she kept talking about quitting her job and moving out of her apartment. By the end of the show it was like, "We get it. You sacrificed to be here. Get over it."

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
