Oh, How Pinteresting! 10/31/2012


   It's my most favorite day of the year, Halloween!Unfortunately I cannot dress up at school like the good ole' days but I did wear a trick or treat button in spirit. I used PicMonkey to create my day of the dead sugar skull photo above. I've been trying to convince Blake that we should paint our faces like this for tonight. I think he has finally agreed to let me do it, we'll see how that goes tonight. Below are my favorite pins of this week.

1. My favorite feeling in the world is: love, it can be both seen and felt.
2. My favorite smell is: vanilla and puppy's breath.
3. My favorite taste is: anything sweet. I might have the biggest sweet tooth in all of the land. Just maybe.
4. The most beautiful thing I have ever seen is: all of the love displayed at my wedding. Love really does make the world go round.
5. The best sound ever is: any type of laughter.
6. A smell that reminds me of childhood is: fire because it takes me back to my living room in Dallas. The smell of fire reminds me of how blessed I was and still am.
7. My favorite of all the senses is: my sense of sight.

   It's the most amazing fall weather right now, rain and a cold front blew in last night. Today is an early release day and I can't wait to check out Red box for a scary movie, throw on a comfy pair of p.j's and curl up with a blanket. I hope my entire weekend is like that. Rest and relaxation is just what the doctor ordered.

Currently I am...


  I got this idea from A Beautiful Mess.

READING: Blogs upon blogs!
THINKING ABOUT: My younger sister Caroline. Her wedding is next Sunday in Mexico. Unfortunately we will not be there becuase I was pregnant. I can't believe my family is growing up!

LOVING: Red Ribbon Week at school. I'm currently teaching in pink fluffy p.j's.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: My two year anniversary. Blake reminded me that it's in fact next Tuesday and that Halloween is Wednesday. Oh, this is my most favorite time of year.

WONDERING: When will be be 'cleared' to start trying for a family again. God is teaching me patience.
EATING: Loads and loads of pasta and foods that have practically know folic acid. It's junk food city over here in Texas at my house.
DISLIKING: Giving blood every other day... I have weak veins that collapse and it's excruciating to give even a drop!
HAPPY ABOUT: The kindness of strangers. I have felt an overwhelming since of love from my followers who are virtually strangers. If I am talking about YOU please know I have found comfort in your words, stories, and prayers. From the bottom of my heart I thank you.

Oh, How Pinteresting! 10/25/2012



   With everything that has been going on the past few days I almost forgot that the Mr. and I will be celebrating two years of wedded bliss next Wednesday. The Mr. has asked me what I would like and after surprising me two weekends ago with a full day at the spa I couldn't think of anything else I desired. Well, one thing is a healthy pregnancy, but I know that's in God's hands for now. So with the distractions that pinterest can create I've compiled a not-so simple lists of things I need want. If you're reading this and your heart desires to buy me these items then so be it. :)

These adorable boot socks because even in Texas I will wear them.

This wing back rocker.

Yes, these are monogrammed P.J's!

I wear Toms almost everyday so a new pair is necessary.

Power pack charger for when you don't have a chord.

Thank you for the sweet emails and comments, they have helped give hope to the situation. I appreciate all of them. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!

Just a little humor for your day...

Asher


   On September 7th 2012, our greatest dream came true; we made a baby. Yes, we've been trying for a very long time but with so many negative tests I forgot that one day it would actually be positive! Seeing those two pink lines instantly brought tears of happiness to my eyes. I then had to take a digital to see that word I wanted to be attached to for so long...Pregnant.
   Sadly, I must tell you that last Thursday we lost baby Asher. There are no words to comfort me and you can't truly know what the loss of a child feels like unless you have been in that situation. A person's a person no matter how small and although I am sad,  I am also happy for the time I was pregnant and for the life that was growing inside of me. Asher means fortunate; blessed. 
   There is still a long road of grief we must endure but God has a plan for us and with His blessing it can only get better.

"I fell in love with you while you were forming in my womb. Now I carry you in my heart instead of my arms."

1. My favorite flower is different based on the occasion. For instance, my favorite flower to receive is a white rose, while my favorite flower to look at is a passionflower.
2. You should never talk about politics or religion. Both topics are far too sensitive to be casually brought up in any social setting.
3. My favorite discovery as of late is country time lemonade packets!
4. This fall you will probably find me wearing my new ugg and minnetonka boots and lots of layers.
5. I wish I were asleep. Lately I can't get enough!
6. My favorite TV show currently is Criminal Minds- it never gets old and I love it!
7. This weekend I want to go to the pumpkin patch and then decorate our front porch.

Even though this was a short work week I am so happy that today is Friday. Sometimes the shortest weeks are actually the longest. Happy Friday and better yet, happy weekend!

I'm loving witches this week! I'm still as an adult fascinated with the Salem Witch Hunts. I've always been a person who enjoys scary movies and that hasn't changed with maturity. I am still a fan of Disney classics, the majority of which have a wicked witch of some sort. This time of year is like Christmas for me! Maybe I will dress up as a witch this year... afterall it is the most classic Halloween costume there is, right?
