5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

Hi Friends and Happy Father’s Day to all of our daddies and daddies-to-be! We have had a wonderful day showering Patrick with love, and now that we are home and he is taking a little evening Father’s Day nap, I decided to sneak on here and write a little post for all of you about the ADVENTUROUS day that we have had. So here it goes…

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny:

1. So, here is how our morning began…. Well, I should really give y’all a little backstory first. I was FORCED BEYOND MY WILL to take a HUGE portion of cake home from the baby shower yesterday. And not just ANY section of cake, it was more like the entire side which had an ENORMOUS amount of LUSCIOUS FROSTING. Which I usually do not complain about free cake, but this cake was DANGEROUS y’all!

It was a fabulous, homemade, incredibly moist, creamy, rich, buttery, melt in your mouth, almond flavored cake…. And it tasted exactly like Wedding Cake. And here’s the problem, Wedding Cake is my one weakness! It is my favorite and I lose all of my senses and become completely clutched in its grasp while in its presence. Well, on my way home yesterday evening, I tried my very best to get rid of it all. I dropped some off to my grandparents, and then brought the rest to the boys. I left it on the counter hoping they would devour every last morsel.

But when I woke up this morning and headed into the kitchen, there it was… just STARING at me! One glorious piece of cake left. It was as if Jesus had saved it just for me! I tried to resist at first, but as I walked past to retrieve the coffee creamer from the fridge, I got one heavenly sniff and immediately fell into its evil clutches. I had no other choice but to gobble it up at once. Plus, you know that I am an adult, and it IS technically okay for me to eat cake for breakfast… And that is EXACTLY what I did.

Good Report Today!

Good Report Today!

Well Friends, this was THE DAY that we have been looking forward to for the past 5 weeks. Today was Patrick’s first check-up visit with his heart specialist since undergoing his last heart procedure. We went into today with high hopes that we would receive some good news, and would be able to finally begin to put all of the pieces of our life back together since everything seemed to fall apart last year when he was first diagnosed with AFIB and Congestive Heart Failure.

This day seemed almost SURREAL. All of the trials that we have gone through until this point were coming to a head. And as excited as we were going into it, we were also a teeny bit apprehensive. Would we receive good news that would help to uplift our spirits and fill us with hope? Or would we receive bad news and would once again have to restart this whole process over again? We were filled to the brim with nervous excitement, and were anxious to find out whether or not the reading from the heart monitor over the past month would be POSITIVE or NEGATIVE. So we said a prayer and took a deep breath as we made our way into the doctor’s office while hoping for the best.Continue reading

5 Things: Our Hospital Day

5 Things: Our Hospital Day

Hi Friends! We have had so many of you checking up on us this week to see how Patrick’s procedure went on Monday. Well, we are happy to report that it went very well! Here are 5 little fun facts about how our day at the hospital went…

1. On Monday, Patrick went in to have a quick little procedure to implant a small heart monitor in his chest above his heart. It was scheduled for 8:00 am, which meant that we had to WAKE UP and leave the house earlier than we normally have to. This wasn’t the easiest of tasks because now that we are homeschooling, we have gotten accustomed to sleeping in a bit. And this time, we were bringing our kiddos with us. On top of an already early appointment, we decided to ahead and leave a little earlier that we typically would have since the hospital is a 30 min drive from our home, and we wanted to make sure we would make it on time because traffic can be somewhat of an issue in that area. Well, we got there on time, THANK THE LORD! Patrick went immediately back to get prepped, while the kids and I sat in the waiting room. And this picture of our youngest son depicts how we were all feeling… Continue reading

Happy Mother’s Day 2016

Happy Mother’s Day, Sweet Friends! We hope all of you have a very blessed day surrounded by your babies, whether they are BIG or SMALL…. because you know they will always be your babies no matter how old they are!

Today I was beyond blessed because I got to spend the day with my sweet HUSBAND (who’s health is continuing to improve daily… YAY!), and my 4 little JEWELS that God so graciously BLESSED me with. They surprised my with a yummy breakfast, coffee, the new shirt that I am wearing today,  handmade Mother’s Day cards, and flowers picked from our garden!Continue reading
