So last Friday I spent the day in Chicago with some Friends on a day shopping trip.  We had a great time browsing through the stores, buying some things, and enjoying lots of food &drinks.  Towards the end of the day we stop by a Clarie's store to pick up some earrings for Nat's daughter Sydney.  That's when I had in impulsive thought to get my ear pierced again.  Crazy, I know...but thought of it as a way to celebrate all the weight I have lost so far (I know I don't talked about that much...I will soon, I promise).  Of course I had some great friends who thought I needed pictures of this. Thanks, girls!!!!

As I was waiting to get it done, I commented about how I didn't think Mike would even notice...and true to nature I finally gave in and told him on Sunday night...two days after I had it done.  He's reaction "well, you don't notice when I give myself haircuts anymore either"

 Ummm, Hello!!!!  He give himself a haircut like once a week, of course I don't notice.   He wasn't mad and glad I did the earring instead of a nose piercing.

For the record books

No it didn't snow here in Michigan today, but this is what our yard looked like a couple of weeks ago...Nov 11 to be exact.  It was so beautiful hanging on the trees, but I honestly must say that I'm glad that it didn't stay.  I'm not ready for winter just yet....even though the boys did convince me that we needed to go winter boot shopping the next morning.  But at least I don't have to do that when the snow does stay around.  Happy Monday Everyone!!!!

Days of Thanksgiving: Day 3

Today I am thankful and proud that I am an American

"I'm proud to be an American, Where at least I know I'm free.  I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.  I'll proudly stand up next to him to defend her still today, Cuz there aint no doubt I love this land.  God bless the USA" (From the song “Proud to be an American")

God truly has blessed America.  We have so much more than so many people in the world.  So many things that we take be granted each and every day.  So today I want to thank God for allowing me to be a citizen of this great land, because HE could have put me in a hundred million other places in the world.  
I am thanking for the freedom that I have to worship and thank the LORD most high for this blessing.

Days of Thanksgiving: Day 2

Today I am grateful God allowed me to be a mom to this guy.  
There are so many things that I love about him; he's

willing to work for money, 
knows when I need to be complimented
has a great sense of humor,
 athletic and loves to run
has an amazing love for God
kind to other... 
the list goes on and on.  

There are plenty of times when we butt heads...but I love him with all my heart and my life would be missing something if he wasn't around.

Days of Thanksgiving: Day 1

One of the blogs that I follow, had a post today about 30 days of Thanksgiving and I thought it was such a great idea, so I thought I would be a copycat. ( I hope that's okay, Sarah)

So for Day 1, I am so grateful for these three gals in the picture below.  
They are the most INCREDIBLE friends a person can ask for. 
 They are there for the GOOD times and the bad times. 
 They want to hear about the HIGHS and the lows in our family.  
They are the BEST people to laugh with and to cry with.  
I can be myself when I'm with them.    

Thank you girls for all your LOVE, SUPPORT and PRAYERS.  

sorry about the glowing eyes in the pictures...I guess that's what you get with a photo camera.
