When I Like To Write

image

Hey guys! What’s up?! Well, another Saturday night is upon us! We’ve decided to stay in tonight(as the weather is crap tonight! In the 30’s!)and watch, “Saving Private Ryan,” again! We’ve seen that movie at least, a thousand times, but hey, it’s a good one! What can I say?!
I have never been a “morning person!” My whole life! Makes me wonder how I survived driving busses for 14yrs. Getting up at 4am! it!)is time is when I come alive, haha. I honestly try blogging during the day. My laptop stays in the living room, along with all the chaos. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I cannot concentrate with a million different things going on, and none of it pertains to meh. But, when I put on my headsets, is when the magic happens! It totally changes my attitude, enough to calm down and write!

Night time, means, the house is silent, and sleeping. I’m not a big fan of chaos, but it always seems to find us, during the day. No matter if you’re a stay at home mom, or go to a work place, I feel, there’s nothing better when you end your day, and can just relax and enjoy the night.

Are you a day time blogger or night time blogger?

That “One” Quote Thursday!

image

Hey guys. It’s no secret that I love Pintrest! Who doesn’t?! It’s so addicting! But fun also! I could spend hours and not blink an eye! This is one of my favorite quotes! I can relate. It seems in this fast paced world, we expect everything at our finger tips! We’re not used to waiting for anything. Even in the situation my family and I are in, living with the mil, getting out of the situation really doesn’t happen over night. It takes determination and constant dedication.

image

It’s a proven fact, life came with no rule book! (Even if it did, would we follow it?!)they came up with “parenting books,” but sometimes, we find ourselves down that long difficult road. Either to get your own place, loose weight, or either just get that raise at your job. One, it doesn’t happen over night, and it often leaves to difficult roads. We all face things on a daily basis, we thought other wise we could not handle. Life is full of difficult roads. Finding your way is only part of your journey.

image

It’s true, sometimes life isn’t all fairy tales. I feel, every time we fall and dust ourselves off and get back up, is another victory we can call our own. So as long as we keep getting up!

These are just a few of my favorite quotes from Pintrest! What are some of your favorites?!

Wonderful Wednesday

image

Hey guys! Todays episode of Wonderful Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a great day! There are lots of things that I find wonderful, and it was really hard to choose! One thing that I find would be absolutely wonderful right now, would be our our own place! Our own privacy would be a wonderful thing right about now!

image

Who doesn’t love candles?! If I could, I would have every single room filled with candles! I love everything about candles. The different smells. I love how the different smells can change your mood in an instant! What’s your favorite scent?

image

These things make my life wonderful! Without at least one of these things in my life, my life would be so boring! From my music to my tablet, it’s what makes life fun!

What about you? What would make your Wednesday Wonderful?!

Tempting Tuesday!

image

Hey y’all! I hope you’re having a Fabulous Tuesday! This starts todays edition of…”Tempting Tuesdays!” This picture was taken in Missouri! That’s one thing I miss about that place is, the scenery! Here in Florida, it’s nothing but flatland and highways! Sometimes I still wish we were up there.

image

It’s no lie though, after living up north and being boxed in for half a year, cause I get so cold way too easy! I love Spring! It reminds me that summer isn’t too far away, and I really enjoy the longer days of sitting out back sipping on tea!(or a beer or two!)

image

And finally, who doesn’t get tempted by a beautiful sunrise or sunset?! I love sitting outback and watching the sun godown. It’s just breath taking.

What’s tempting you today?!

Life Choices

image

Hey guys! (I’m still trying to fumble my way through my blogging voice, so bare with me:)Have you ever just sat back and wondered what makes a person tick? I mean seriously. For those of you who don’t know, a “quick” recap!
My family and I are natives of Florida, got fed up with all the crap here, and moved to Mountain View, Mo.(where there wasn’t a single mountain in sight! Talk about false advertisement!)for three years. We absolutely LOVED it there, but after about the second year, we slowly realized, it wasn’t gonna workout. Why you ask? Absolutely no jobs AT ALL! And the ones that were there were very little in pay. Plus, it was towards our third year there, I found out, my mom was dying. So we had to make some huge life choices, yet again

image

Knowing that she would have done the same for me, we once again packed all of our worldly belongings and headed back to Florida. A very long drive of 15 hours later. We had, literally nowhere else to go but to the mother n laws house. Where it has literally been hell on earth, for three miserable years.

(My mom)

I got to spend a little over three weeks with my mom in the nursing home. Then I drove school busses, and after my morning run and after work, I would spend time with her. I kid you not, it was one of the very hardest things I have ever had to deal with, that, three years later, I am still dealing with.
It’s funny how life can change at the blink of an eye. But I’ve alwas been a believer in “God doesn’t put on you more than you can handle.” (Although sometimes I wonder.)

Spring Time In Florida!

image

Hey guys! Happy Friday! One of the seasons I love the most in Florida is, Spring. A time of change, for everything. Flowers are blooming, and the weather is changing(for the better, I might add!:)and the days are longer! YaY! Florida has some pretty bipolar weather! One week it’s in the 30’s, next week it’s in the 80’s! During the winter time, that is. In the summer, I don’t think it gets below 50 at night! Which is just fine for me! Cause when we lived in Missouri for three years, I think I froze!

image

One of the things I love from Spring on, is sitting out back with the puppy with my head phones in. It’s so relaxing.

What’s your favorite season?

Throw Back Thursdays Y’all!

image

Hey guys! Todays newest feature! I’ll be doing Throw Back Thursdays from now on, to show you what I looked like as a kid! These pictures seem so surreal to me. I am glad I have them, and the memories! Always make memories with your family!

Today is the first time, in I don’t know how long, that I am actually…wait for it! *HOME ALONE*(well, other than “J.” I am at my laptop for a change, with the headphones in listening to some chill music, and enjoying the peace and quiet! So relaxing!

image

This is a picture of “J” when he was little. Isn’t he so cute! He is now 19, and almost ready to graduate! My how time flies! I tell ya, that boy cannot wait to get out of school! And to tell you the truth, haha…neither can we! LoL..Some of “J’s” favorite things at the moment are, ANYTHING Star Wars related! The boy loves Star Wars! For his current birthday, we got him a white, Storm Trooper helmet, that you can talk through, and it changes your voice! It’s pretty bad ass if I say so myself! And yes, I just had to try it out! He also has a Darth Vader Helmet. You just push the button and it does sounds from the movie! He of course likes the Storm Trooper better! But I think they both are pretty awesome! He also LOVES his X – Box! Don’t mess with him and his X – Box! He loves of course Star Wars games, but also Call of Duty Black Ops and all of those games! Whew…He also has quite a collection of computer games!

image

Meet our oldest! “M.” He is now 20! Again, where does the time fly?! He of course is out of school, and is a Mechanic, in training! He is currently into, anything car or truck related! Omg…The other night, he stayed at a friends house helping him out with his truck, didn’t get in till after 1am! And still went to work the next day! Oh to be young again! He also likes to party and have a good time with his friends! He’s your average 20 year old. Comes home from work, changes, and is out the door again!

image

Meet “The Old Man!” This was taken in Missouri. It was our first year up there, and our first real experience with snow! Boy did it cover the car, pretty good! He just recently changed positions at his job, from being a mechanic, to being kinda in the office, and he seems much happier! Which is always a good thing, to like what you do! It makes going to work, bearable!

image

And finally, me! This was my graduation picture, wayyyy back in 1991! Seems like such a long time ago! Things seemed much simpler then! Didn’t have a care in the world, and I could come and go as I pleased. And pretty much do my own thing! But you know what? I wouldn’t give up what I have now for the world! My family is who I am. Without any of them in my life, my life would be pretty empty. I am grateful for each and every one of them.

 

 

What do you love most about your family?
