Happy Birthday To Our February Babies!

Happy Birthday To Our February Babies!

We would like to wish all of our February babies a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Your birthday month is extra special because y’all have your very own cake of the month…. KING CAKE! And here in Louisiana, it doesn’t get much better than king cake. 😉

We would like to send out a very SPECIAL happy birthday wish to our cousin, Ryan. He and his sweet wife, Keri just found out that they are expecting their very first baby, and we are all OVER-THE-MOON excited for them! We can’t wait to welcome their new little bundle of joy in August! This will be the first baby in our family since we welcomed our youngest daughter almost 4 years ago. So, having a new little one is well over due.(And for the first time in a LONG time, Patrick and I aren’t the ones expecting! HAHA!)

If you are CELEBRATING a birthday this month, please let us know in the comments section below! We would love to wish you a happy birthday. 

Happy New Year We Are Looking Forward To 2016!

Happy New Year We Are Looking Forward To 2016!

Happy New Year, Friends! As we enter into 2016, we cannot help but look back on the year that we are leaving behind…2015. And boy are we happy to have it come to an end in order to start afresh in 2016! Many of you may have noticed that I have not been posting as much as I normally do over the past week, but I have been spending some much needed quiet time in prayer. I do this the last week in every year in order to ask God for insight and guidance for the new year.Continue reading

AKA… Homeschooling With Our Kids

A.K.A. … homeschooling with our kiddos! LOL!
 
This has been a CRAZY WEEK for us as EXCITEMENT over the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday has filled every square inch of our home. Our children’s bundled up JOY seems to be taking over. (It is honestly the only thing that any of us are thinking about.) This will be our first lengthy vacation break of the school year, and we just can’t seem to get to Friday evening FAST ENOUGH!
I Refuse To Let My Circumstances Ruin My Day

I Refuse To Let My Circumstances Ruin My Day

Oh, heavens! Yes… this is EXACTLY what is happening over here. I have a feeling that I will need to write a MUCH LONGER blog post about the events that have transpired in our home over the past 24 hrs, but since I am currently short on time, I will have to sum it up for y’all in 5 short bullet points….Continue reading

Be Thankful

Be Thankful

One of our FAVORITE quotes. It doesn’t matter what is happening in life, my friends, ALWAYS choose to be THANKFUL! Thankfulness provokes a chain reaction that only GOOD can come from. And HAPPINESS is ALWAYS sure to follow. 🙂

Here Are Our Top 10 Secrets To Try If You Are Having A Rough Day

Here Are Our Top 10 Secrets To Try If You Are Having A Rough Day

Hi Friends! So, I had a really ROUGH DAY last week. My ENTIRE week was going great! No complaints, house was clean, we were right on schedule with all of our orders… And then it happened! I had some upsetting news on a Friday night right before bed. It was NOT something so completely terrible that it changed the course of history as we know it. (THANK GOD)  No, it was just something that I had been working on for quite some time now, and it just didn’t work out. Or at least not yet (I am trying to remain optimistic!) It was a REAL BUMMER, though. I was pretty upset because it felt as though all of my hard work was all done in vain! Have y’all ever felt like this before? Yep, it’s not a fun place to be in.

So here are a few things that I like to do when I am feeling the down:Continue reading

A Cheerful Heart Is Good Medicine

A Cheerful Heart Is Good Medicine

Words to live by….

A THANKFUL and GRATEFUL heart will always get us much further in life than a negative one. We are only given one life, friends! And it is so important to spend each day wisely! God has given us the ability to choose how we spend each day, and we must not waste such a BLESSING.

Everyday, we have train our minds to focus on the good, even if every ounce of our being is wanting to focus on the bad. Even if our world seems to be crumbling all around us. Even if there seems to be nothing to be optimistic about. I promise, friends….there is always something GOOD that can be found in EVERY situation. You may not see in now, but IT IS THERE! Ask God to reveal it to you. Cling to that glimmer of hope and don’t let it go!Continue reading
