Hosting a give away...


I have little mini rewards set up for myself along my weight loss journey. Getting below 220 last week (finally!) I rewarded myself with a haircut. :)
Its taking some getting used to as its shorter than I've ever worn it, and there are layers and *gasp* bangs!! So I actually have to do something to fix my hair. But I think I'm going to like it. :)

Ice Ice Baby

I don't know if you can tell how shiny the street is in the background- its all ice- not water. Thankfully its starting to melt- but we are having an ice day today. Staying inside and warm.
Back to reality tomorrow. :)

Shamless Plug

For my honey's blog:

On This Day...

I spent the morning in prayer, thought and relative quiet (as quiet as the house can possibly be with a 4 year old and 2 year old)
I watched the news and the coverage of today's events.
Whether you like him or not, whether you agree with his politics or not, our country has a new president.

This morning two passages stood out to me:

Hebrews 13:8,17
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you."

Romans 13 1&2
"Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves"

While the outcome may not have been what I hoped for, it is the outcome we are faced with.
I respect the office President Obama holds, and I respect him as my President. I will pray for him and his family, because I know he has a very long uphill battle ahead of him.

Whether you like it or not, today is a historic day.

So Excited:

Have you ever found the PERFECT gift for someone without even looking? That happened to me this past weekend. We were in a certain store browsing around and I look down and saw something. I got all excited and picked it up- then noticed the strange look Aaron was giving me.
"What would we do with that??" he asked.
"Its not for us- its for Steven and Megan!!"
I know that Megan reads so I can't say what it is. lol Don't you love my cryptic blog? But if you really want to know- just shoot me an email or IM and I'll tell ya. :D
I was excited for our trip before- but now I am even more so- I love giving gifts- especially when they are as perfect as this is!

Less than two months and we'll be in Colorado! Yeah!

Brace Face.....

Metal mouth..etc. I am now a member of the braces clan. :) I went in last Tuesday for a consult- I have a horrible gap between my two front teeth, and a baby tooth that never fell out and the adult tooth came in anyway, just up on the top part of my gums- you can see it on the left up there. Anyway, I was hoping for Invisalign, but nope- due to the baby tooth/adult tooth business traditional braces it is. I got them put on the next day- clear on top and metal on bottom since you can't see those when I smile anyway. So here I am in all my no make-up, double chin, unfixed hair glory. You like? ;)

If you feel so inclined...

Please take the time to read this mothers blog- and help if you feel lead. I try to put myself in her shoes and I can't even stomach the idea.

Many prayers are with that family right now.

Taken for Granted...

I don't know how many of you heard- but on Tuesday a Dallas Police officer was killed in the line of duty. He was laid to rest today. Grace was with Jayme and they actually witnessed the procession.
I know for me, its so easy to take our officers for granted, as well as the military. We don't tend to think about them until we need them. It shouldn't take something like this to make us stop and remember that these men and women put their lives on the line daily for our safety.
Here's the link to the video of the procession if anyone wants to see it (you'll also be able to follow links to the full story as well)
