Hello Friends! WOW! I cannot believe how long it has been since I have posted. Life has taken some crazy twists and turns, all for the better!
I quickly just wanted to stop by to say hi and let you know what has been taking up most of my time these past 10 months!
- When I left you all Sean and I were in the process of house hunting. We were exhausted, feeling discouraged, and just praying for the right house to come along. April we moved into our dream home! It is gorgeous, has Sean's acres, and is big enough for us to grow into! Since we moved we have been doing lots of decorating and a few minor remolding projects. Last weekend we just started on the downstairs :)
-Another HUGE change in my life that has been occupying my time is my new business! My sister and I have always dreamed of opening a business together, so we finally took the plundge and couldn't be more exicted! Check out our website here:
If you, or anyone you may know anyone up in Minnesota is in need of an event planner we are holding a 50% off special right now to build our portfolios! Help spread the word friends :)
I hope that you all have been well. I have continued to check into your blogs and keep up on your lives as much as possible!
Miss you all!

A Break

I want to start by apologizing for my lack of blogging lately. I have definitely missed reading what's going on in your lives as well as receiving your sweet comments every day.

With this said, I am taking a little break from the blogging world. There has been a lot weighing on my heart lately.....a lot of big decisions, some let downs, and working hard to stay positive that has been keeping me very busy on top of my 2 jobs and being a wife and mama to my pup.

I am hoping it won't be for long, maybe a week or two...we'll see how long I can resist :)

Bless you all!

A Challenge for you!


Yesterday was a horrible day. I'm not going to lie. It was one of those days where everything and everyone was getting to me in some way. I was feeling very unhappy with my job and education, I got very emotional and just wanted to cry...I worked 11 hours, then when I finally got home we recieved some news that totally bummed us out ...I was ready to just go bed, I so badly wanted the day to end.

When I got in bed I started to think that even with all my personal problems and the tough things I am being faced with, my life is good. It is SO good. I have the most amazing husband in the world, I have the sweetest pup who loves us even at our worst, and my family is nothing but supportive. I have a beautiful house over my head, food in my fridge, and atleast I am working even though it's far from ideal.

This song has been my go to song lately when I am feeling down. The lyrics fill my heart...

"You must, you must think I'm strong to give me what I'm going through.
Well, forgive me forgive me if I'm wrnog but this looks like more than I can do on my own.
I know I'm not strong enough to be everthing that I'm suppose to be I give up, I'm not strong enough....
Hands of mercy won't you cover me, Lord right now I'm asking you to be strong enough, strong enough for he both of us"

Today I am challenging myself, and you, to....

-Take the time to tell someone you love them
-Give someone a hug
-Appreciate the little things in life
-Help someone in need
-Smile at a stranger, you may be the one person to make their day
-Be thankful for all the blessings God has given you

One line of that song, which is also from the bible, that I keep close to my heart is

Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things, through Christ who gives me strength."

Today I am really trying to focus on being postive, and to not dwell on the negatives in my life. I am confident in God's plan for me, and I know everything will work out in the end.

"The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him"

Thursday Randoms

Happy Thursday friends! We are almost to the weekend, how exciting! My life has been super busy this week, so today I am going to let my mind go and share all the random thoughts going through it!

~ I am offically addicted to Dove chocolate! I don't know if I am more excited to eat it...or to read the sweet quote on the inside of the wrapper! I LOVE this one today! " Discover how much your heart can hold"

~ It was -11, with a -30 wind chill this morning...high of 1 degree today. Yup...hello Winter, SOO glad you finally have joined us here in MN...NOT!

~ We went house hunting last night, and I think we found a strong contender! We are going back tonight to check it over more closely and possibly make an is a little sneak peak

~ I exercised 2 days ago, and can still barely walk today..what is wrong with me? How embarrassing that I am that out of shape, and that I am literally waddling around work.

~ Tomorrow my sister in law is getting married! YAY!! I can't wait to dress up with my hubby and watch her tie the knot. I love weddings!

~ I am LOVING these things..

~ You all are great! Reading your comments always puts a smile on my face!!
