Well Spring's not really in the air outside, it's frigid cold here today, but inside it is!! I spent yesterday cleaning and putting out my spring decorations. I love decorating for different seasons; it just makes you feel so good! Especially Spring because it means warmer weather..come on Spring! Every time I look at the weather I see snow in the forecast.
This is my favorite picture of Finn. Melissa took this picture and I think it is so sweet of his little face!
I have lost some of my spring decorations. I'm not sure how that happened, maybe when we moved. I had this cute egg wreath and it is nowhere to be found!
Today my mailbox was packed full of goodies! I have been waiting on two packages and I got them both today!
Jared has been on me for weeks to order P90X, so I got it today and tonight we are starting (or attempt to start). I don't know how hard it is, but I'm a little nervous! I told Jared I do not want to look like a body builder, I just want to lose a few pounds for the summer! We'll see how it goes. Maybe I will look like Kelly Ripa, that girl has some nice arms!
The other thing I got today was my chubby book from the DuetDiva. I entered her giveaway and I won! I was so excited, I never win anything. I also won a book called Footprints for Women.
I am so excited to start using my chubby book (just a spiral index card notebook). I think this is a great idea and actually the day I told my sister about it, someone had told her basically the same thing. It is amazing just how God works in your life. I was just thinking about how I need to do better at praying and I needed to start a list of things/people to pray for. I think of people to pray for and then other people/things pop up that need prayers to and I always leave some out. This book shows you a better, more detailed way to pray. You divide your prayers into categories. Family, church, community, world, and blog friends. You can use whatever categories work best for you. Then assign a prayer for each category for each day of the week.
So for example:
Church: Michael (our preacher at church)
Community: A Friend who is pregnant
World: Children who need help/adoption
Bloggers: A family losing a little girl to cancer
She also said on the back you can you can write down more detailed prayers for each day. As you see God answering the prayers you can cross them out, and it will show you how he is answering prayers in your life!
I am the wife to the love of my life, Jared, whom I married on May 12, 2007. June of 2009 we found out that I was pregnant with our first child, Finn. He came 4 weeks early in January 2009, and spent the first week of his life in the NICU. It was the hardest thing we have ever gone through and it changed our lives. Finn is now a healthy adorable little boy! My sister and I had babies on the same day(not planned)! I am a stay at home mom and it is the best job ever! I thank GOD everyday, he has blessed us with more than I could ask for! We now have a little girl, Wells! She was born on December 13, 2010!
