Well another year has come and is almost gone. I have been blogging for almost a year, we have been homeschooling for a whole year, and my husband has been saved for a whole year. There have been lots of changes around here. I want to tell how blessed I am, but sometimes it sounds like I’m bragging when I’m really just praising and acknowledging God, that’s where my blessings come from.

So, without going into too much detail…winter, we had some battles with family issues, spring, my husband and I celebrated our first anniversary in a way I never thought he would do. Summer was spent in a blur of me driving endlessly to greensboro. Fall was lovely and found me adjusting to working from home.

In between those seasons, we were never hungry, naked, despaired, or desperate. We have all of our needs and most of our wants met. We have tried unsuccessfully to get pregnant, but we have (most of the time) not gotten bitter. We have planned a trip to Vegas!!! We love each other, we fuss, we play, we go to church like families need to do.

As for 2014, I have some goals that I am going to try to achieve and there may be some big changes…We shall see! Tonight I will spend the new year coming in at home with my husband (who is recovering from a nasty sprained ankle) and probably be asleep on the couch way before midnight.

Over all…I am so blessed, God’s sooooo good to me and my family. I pray He will help me be what I need to be and draw me and my family closer to Him!!! God bless you and thanks for reading!!



I love Facebook most of the time, but recently every time I got on there I was getting mad over seeing people getting pregnant that have been in a relationship for five whole minutes, endless selfies, and negativity about EVERYTHING from some people. I also hate seeing fake people who you know things about their personal life and they put on such a front about how wonderful their relationship is to Facebook. I don’t think I am better than anyone and I may get on people’s nerves talking about my blessed life (which thank God it truly is) but I got tired of feeling mad, sad, resentful, angry and sometimes even enraged every day. So…I deactivated my account for 24 hours. I had intentions of staying off of it and I really feel my time will be way more limited on it now. I reactivated it because it is a way I can keep up with the people I want to and events going on. I had a little unfriending session and I found the “hide all from user” button for some of the people I want to keep up with them, but not every vine they like and recipe they share. I did it to help my peace of mind and keep my mood up, not bitter. So, if you don’t like my status updates or things that come across your news feeds, I invite you to try one of those two buttons too 🙂


I have been nominated by my friend Jenni for two awards, and I haven’t had time to blog about it.

Those little refillable cups you can get for the Keurig are not that great unless you like 7-8 coffee grounds per cup and having it spewed all over the outside of your cup while it brews.

Since working at home, I am keeping my house pretty clean 🙂

I get to take some pictures this afternoon!!

I think some of the traditions in church are weird, but the people who nastily “enforce” those traditions are annoying and do more harm than good.

I love Hobby Lobby and I wish we had one in Mt. Airy.

I’m still not pregnant and I’m kind of ok with it….

Robert works his butt off at his new job, but he likes it, it made me cry last week when he had to miss basketball.

Costco doesn’t take MasterCard. That stinks.

Walmart on Black Friday is madness, this was my first year and we were in and out in 25 minutes, but people are stupid crazy!!

That’s all for now, just letting you know I am still here and blessed. Hope you all have a great Sunday!!
