Somebody take away my plastic
I leave for Washington this Friday. It will be a quick little escape to spend time with my handsome cowboy Joe and I absolutely cannot wait. The original plan was to wait until June to see each other but love makes your head go fuzzy and it also makes flights at any price justifiable. Even though we could have survived another month apart I’m so glad that we made the decision to just plan...
It's not a good day
Today is just one of those days where the tiniest thing will bring tears to my eyes. Good, bad, funny, ironic, stressful….it doesn’t matter, I’ll most likely start crying. (The ugly cry no less. You know, the one where you wanna stop but trying to stop makes it looks worse….*sigh*… it is not my day) Here’s a running tally so far today: - I miss Joe. Crying...
My collection of "stuff" grows!
I was pleasantly surprised with all the things I got accomplished this weekend while still managing to soak up some “me” time and relax. Heading into the weekend I was overwhelmed and to be honest just not feeling myself at all. I am bright and cheery most days and to have a few days of being grumpy just doesn’t suite me. I was also slightly annoyed to come to the realization...
…..Lord, fill my heart with your love so that I can give it away.– This was the last little snippet of an email devotional I had sitting in my inbox today and just reading fills my heart to the brim. Who’s ready to be showered with a little extra love today?
Absence makes the heart grow fonder….– Although I wholeheartedly believe this to be true it doesn’t make absence any easier. Missing that man of mine…
My little craft heaven.
I had one crazy productive week that was fueled by my need to finally feel settled into our new home. Right after our move I packed up and headed to Montana for a week and then as soon as I got back to Nebraska I was swept up in a ton of projects for work. However, this weekend I ended up having loads of free time to get a few things finished…..and of course numerous other things started. ...
The little things that mean the most.
Phone conversations that go on for hours without worry of running out of things to talk about Little notes tucked away to find at a later time Stolen glances and tiny grins that speak volumes without the need for words Waiting for the right time to say the biggest things Being known inside and out and appreciated for all of it
I’m happy to announce our little home is finally starting to come together! Last night the carpet crew finished up installing our new carpet and it looks great. Jose, Santos and Eddie worked their tails off to carpet our entire house in one day and Maureen and I were so appreciative. I also think these guys got a major kick out of these two blonde haired girls running around moving furniture...
Just keep working… Just keep working… Just keep working… (Bah! I’m leaving for Montana in two days and I am having the hardest time staying in task!)
The Moving Process Continues
Maureen and I are so very close to being moved into our new rental home! We’ve been hauling, painting, moving, cleaning, and more over the past week and I’m ready to finally just have everything in one spot! However, although it’s been a process we have been able to really freshen the place up before all our furniture has been unloaded. We did encounter an unexpected surprise...
I can’t seem to wrap my head around just how truly blessed I am feeling right now. I’m laying here in bed feeling so overwhelmed with the goodness of all the people on my life. It makes me want to give all that goodness back to others ten fold so more people can experience the joy I have. I just needed to write this out somewhere so I could look back and remember how lucky I am. I...
So much good stuff to share!
Warning: Update and photo overload below. I’ve been horrible about posting life updates and happenings lately so I apologize that you all are going to get them in one big, fat lump! Alright, here we go….. First off, my friend Maureen and I finally found a place to live! We’ve been preparing to move before April 1st but were just having the hardest time finding something we...
Psst… pull up a chair and I’ll tell you a secret. You better lean in close for this one. Ready? You don’t have to do more, be moreor have more. If you really take hold of who you are and what you’re called to do, there will be no stopping you. That’s because there’s no stopping Him in you- and He’s got bigger plans for your life than you’ve even...
Everyone should watch last nights biggest loser. Bob Harper has the most...– Quote courtesy of my friend Holly. I’m not even sure where to begin describing the awesomeness of this comment.

This is an accurate description. There is just something about the CrossFit community that supersedes any other form of workout.
The Bachelor Recap →
Ya’ll know The Bachelor is my guilty “reality” TV pleasure. Well this article is absolutely hilarious and just reaffirms my affinity for the over-the-top, camera-laden quest for love. The show is ridiculous….and that’s what makes it so great. “This week on his path to love, The Bachelor slogs through yet another tedious group date with approximately 9,432...
