Look Who Had Some Excited Visitors…

Look Who Had Some Excited Visitors…

Someone had some very EXCITED visitors yesterday! The kiddos were CHOMPING AT THE BIT to get up to the hospital to see their daddy. They stayed as close as they could to him… Ehmmm… right on top of him, the whole time. He was happy to see them too, and did’t mind one bit!

It is very rare that Patrick is ever away from us, so his presence has definitely been felt over the past few days. He has been doing well and feeling better everyday, and is responding well to the new heart medication. I am happy to announce that he will be able to come home tomorrow! YAY! 😉

Thanks again for all of the PRAYERS, ENCOURAGEMENT, and SUPPORT! We truly appreciate all of you! <3

New Clothing Line Coming Soon

New Clothing Line Coming Soon

Hi Friends! We have some EXCITING news that we would like to share with all of you! This has been a dream of ours for the past several years now, and are  happy to announce that it is finally becoming a reality for us.

We have been working very hard for the past several months on a brand new line of men and women’s shirts! Patrick and I have put our heads together to come up with a fun line of clothing that represents a collaboration of some our most FAVORITE things. We wanted them to really represent who we are, what we like, as well as show some of our fun-loving nature. And as our followers, we think that this is something that all of you will love just as much as we do!

Above is one of my most favorite sample shirts…. and I simply can’t stop wearing them! Not to mention, this one fits my personality PERFECTLY! Y’all know how much I LOVE coffee! HAHA! As soon as we have a chance, we will be posting more pictures of our other styles and sayings! We will be offering sizes S-XL, and can order other sizes per request, as well as a variety of colors.

Let us know what y’all think! 😉

How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

ABSOLUTELY CORRECT! If you are abundant in all of these, then you are the WEALTHIEST person in the world!

We purchased a little decorative sign many, many years ago that says, ” I don’t care how poor a man is; if he has family, he is rich.”

rich

That sign hit home for us because we didn’t have 2 pennies to rub together at the time, yet we felt like we were ON TOP OF THE WORLD because Patrick and I had each other and 2 babies (at the time). We were just happy being together and it truly felt as if life couldn’t get any better.

All of these years later, we still have that little sign in our home. We actually just moved it today to a new shelf in our bathroom so we can see it more often and be reminded of this simple, yet important truth. Sometimes it is nice to hold onto those sentimental things from our past so we can see how far we have truly come.

Be BLESSED, sweet friends! <3

 

We Are Checking Another Worry Off Of Our List!

We Are Checking Another Worry Off Of Our List!

We are checking another worry off our our list today! We are viewing it as just another hurdle that we have had to jump while on this journey in attempts to improve Patrick’s health since finding out about his heart issues last September. (If you are new to our page and would like to catch up on what’s been going on, you can read up HERE, HEREHERE, and HERE.)

As of lately, Patrick has been having tightness in his chest accompanied by pains. We were not exactly sure what was causing them, but his cardiologist felt that it was best if he first underwent a stress test. Although, he wanted Patrick to undero another Cardoversion first before attempting to take a stress test. He definitely wanted Patrick’s heart rate to be under control for at least a month before trying anything else. His chest tightness and pains could have even been a result of his constantly rapid heartbeat because of his AFIB. So, getting his heart rate under control was a MUST.

At the time, all that we really knew was that we HAD to place all of our trust in God’s hands, and consistently move forward with treatment options. For one, he needed to feel better. His dizzy spells, pains, loss of breath, and constant tiredness have become the norm. And for me, it just breaks my heart to see my once VIBRANT, ACTIVE, and HEALTHY husband literally change so drastically PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, and EMOTIONALLY within a matter of months. I know he definitely does not like how he feels either.Continue reading

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… Meet Our Elves!

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… Meet Our Elves!

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… Meet Our Elves!

1. It has started! The stress of every parent during Christmas…. ELF ON THE SHELF SEASON! There is always that GUT WRENCHING FEAR that we will slip up one night and forget to.. well, YOU KNOW! I don’t want to SPILL THE BEANS in case someone’s child happens to come across this post and, in turn, becomes an UNBELIEVER of all things Christmas! 😉

2. So, here they are… meet our elves, Jolly-Jingles and Holly-Bells. Their names can be switched around to become 2 of our most favorite Christmas songs… “Holly Jolly” and “Jingle Bells.” Santa first sent Jolly to us several years ago as our family’s elf. But since our girls were a little uncomfortable changing in front of a boy elf in their bedroom, as well as using the bathroom in front of him if he happened to be in there, Santa decided to send us a girl elf last year. PROBLEM SOLVED!
