For Peace of Mind

I will be keeping everyone updated on my Tumblr account during hurricane Ike because it is much faster than having to upload photos (and I can do it from my phone)! So you can check it periodically to see the ongoings of the storm. There is a link on this page to the Tumblr account!

Be Safe
Love you all,

Seems Like Yesterday

that I was only 18 and just beginning to find out who I really was. Now it is a decade later, and I feel like I am still that 18 year old girl! Hard to believe!! I sometimes have to stop and remember what I have accomplished in the last ten years, doesn't feel like much until I think about it! I have found the love of my life, which is not any easy task, but I got lucky. We have built a wonderful life together by starting our own company. I have to say that not many people I know have done this, and it is one the things I am most proud of. We have bought our own home, and maintained our sanity in the process! I have to say that the last two days I have sat around feeling sorry for myself because the plan that I had in my head didn't work out the way I wanted it to. I thought by now that I would be a mom at least once, if not twice. But I have to remember that not everything happens the way you plan. Everything happens for a reason, I keep telling myself that, but I am not sure I believe it yet. I am lucky to have the things that I do in my life and I am thankful for all of it, but selfishly I want that too much to ask? The hardest thing for me to do right now is hear about everyones pregnancies and be happy for them (and I am happy for them, just hard to show it sometimes). I know that I will be given that gift when I am ready for it...just feel like that is now. No more feeling sorry for myself, I have more than some could ever dream of...great husband, great family, great friends, great home, great business(s). I am blessed, and I know it.

Got an early Birthday Present!!

I think that this is the earliest that I have ever gotten a birthday present! I am so excited! John finally decided that we needed a pool! It might be a cheesy wal-mart pool, but it is a stepping stone for the bigger and better! It is 18ft. by 48in., that's pretty big! So if you need me for the rest of the summer/warm months, I will be relaxing in the pool! Although, of course, as soon as we get a pool the weather changes and it is going to be cloudy and rainy here the whole week! Just our luck! I will take some pictures soon so you can see my "ghetto fabulous" pool!

Great Weekend

We had a good weekend filled with freinds and family! On Friday night I had a Grand Opening party for my new Pampered Chef Business! We had a great time and everything went smoothly! I don't think I I did too bad for my very first show! On Saturday we rested the day away, that is always my favorite thing to do on a weekend! We went to my mom and stepdads house to celebrate his birthday and fathers day! We ate good ribs, had good conversation, and swam till it was cold believe it or not! Sunday was also relaxing, John had lunch with his dad and worked on his "wagon"! I went to my dads and ate and watched a movie. When we got home, we ate dinner and watched movies!! Couldn't ask for better, I love easy weekends!

Life got in the Way

I know, I know! I took too long to post AGAIN! There really feels like there isn't much to say though. I feel old, I realized that I have been graduated from High School for ten years already! It feels like yesterday that I was in school! I started a new business in May, I am now a Pampered Chef Consultant!! So start booking your parties so you can get some free cookware!
I am so proud of Keith, he has a new job and is doing Great (with a capital G!) He is also dating a wonderful girl whom we all LOVE! Her name is Sarah and she is a first grade teacher in The Woodlands, she has lots of patients! LOL!! She is such a good teacher that the Conroe Courier did an article about her and her classroom! Way to go Sarah!

The kittens are now 9 weeks old and are all over the place! We still have three that need a good home, know anyone?!! We ended up with four girls and one boy! It is going to be soooo hard to give these little angles away! The one who stole our hearts was my Addy! She was the second kitten to be born and Saleen didn't rip her sack open right away, so I had to do it because she wasn't moving anymore. But she is fine now and has John and I eating right out of the palm of her hand!! LOL The little grey one is going to the home of some friends of ours. Their kids picked her out about two weeks after they were born. She is the mischievous, stubborn one!! The kids are gonna have fun with her!!! The sleepy one is Weezy! Yes, like from Steel Magnolia's!
She is just like that character, it is so funny! She is minds while you are watching, then when you turn around there she goes!! She is very quite too, but when she meows, you better listen up cause here she comes!!! She happens to be a little spastic too, but still sweet in her own little way!! Then there is the Momma's Boy! I should call this one John, but for now its just Mommas Boy!! He is the sweetest little thing, but ALWAYS wants to eat and is always up his mommas butt! He likes all the attention from whomever he can get it from! Most of the time he is the first one asleep and the last one to wake up! He is a typical little boy in that he likes to get dirty and make a mess. He is the only one who strings his toys all over the place! The last and final one, is my little Peanut. Bless her heart Peanut was the runt of the litter and her brother and sisters were not very nice to her. They pick on her and I am pretty sure it hurts her feelings. Most of the time you can find her by herself and it breaks my heart in two. She has become very independent, but still sweet. She doesn't like it when I try to love on her unless she has just woken up from her nap, and I give her all I have when I can. I hope her new home is full of love, because she deserves it. I think she just needs someone who will focus on just her. Well, didn't realize that they had become such a part of me. I am tearing up at the thought of them leaving me! I am going to go cry now, LOL! See you soon.

Still Here

Yes, I know it has been a very long time since I have posted anything! What can I say I must be a bad blogger! There has been quite a bit going on since the beginning of the year. John and I both lost grandmothers, we have been to one conference and one class for work, we have been to a wedding shower, and will attend a wedding(Congrats Mike and Nicole) on the 12th! Lets just say that the beginning of the year has been extremely emotional, and crazy so far.

Among all of the craziness our little girl(the cat, don't freak out!) came up pregnant. She is due any day now and is completely miserable! She looks like she swallowed a whole cantaloupe and waddles around the house!! If you would like a kitty just let me know, I will be glad to give you one, or two!! LOL!! I will post pics of kittens when they arrive!

She sleeps all day and comes up with some funny positions to lay in!!
