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.

5 Things: We Welcome You To The Lollipop Guild…

1. So, let me start off by telling y’all that we have not been to the gym in FOREVER! At least 8 or 9 months. Basically since Patrick’s health issues began last August. But since we finally have his heart rhythm under control, his doctors have released him to start working out again. Until now, he was only released to work… and that was it! So, sitting at home during this time period has caused us to really undo all of the hard work that we put in at the gym throughout the years prior. And with all of the added stress… the pounds decided to make themselves at home… on our bodies! The struggle has been REAL my friends. Especially considering that this is what my heart keeps telling me to do…Continue reading

Guilty As Charged!

Guilty As Charged!

Guilty as charged!

I cannot, I repeat… CANNOT, hold my laughter in. It is physically and emotionally impossible for me to do so. And it seems to be even worse at times that I am especially NOT SUPPOSED TO LAUGH.

My strength on this matter was tested twice last week when a family member tripped and fell in my yard, and then an acquaintance was telling me about a story where they got hurt…. but in the most hilarious, unimaginable way. I know. I know… all of you think I am absolutely horrible, but I CANNOT help it. And I did ask if they were okay. That is… after I pulled myself together and finished laughing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

At least I feel a little better about my situation after one of our clients revealed to me a few days ago that she and her daughter laugh at funerals. No judging here! I am now nervous I will do the same at the next funeral I attend.

Do any of you have this problem? Or is it just a crazy select few? ME INCLUDED!

Hello Sunshine!

Hello Sunshine!

After a rather GLOOMY day yesterday, we woke up to this BEAUTIFUL sight! ๐Ÿ™‚

The sun is SHINING, the birds are SINGING, and the high today is a TOASTY 68 degrees! And not to mention… there isn’t a single cloud in the sky! It is definitely a GOOD DAY to have a good day, if you ask us!

Hopefully WINTER won’t try to make any more attempts to try to get us down again. We are so ready for SPRING. Who else is with us?

Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

After having a few weeks of warm weather, we woke up this morning to some very unexpected COLD, GLOOMY weather. Ever since then, I have been feeling kind of down, and unable to shake these WINTER BLUES. Up until today, I had high hopes that this cold weather was behind us, and have been excitedly looking forward to Spring. But today really knocked the wind right out of my sails.ย 

It comes as no surprise that most people feel down or depressed during the winter months, and it is actually a very common problem that affects a large number of people. It is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). If you think about it, most people are stuck indoors during the winter months trying to stay hidden from the wintery, gloomy, overcast weather outdoors. And we all know that when we are trapped indoors for long periods of time, we aren’t able to get much needed fresh air, sunlight, and social interaction. All of which are essential to a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Well, if you are like us….trying to fight the winter blues, we have a few solutions to help brighten your moon, and get you back on track!ย Here are some of our top tips for a better, and maybe even enjoyable winter for you and your entire family!Continue reading

This Is TOTALLY Me!

This Is TOTALLY Me!

Anyone who knows me well, knows this is totally ME! I cannot tell y’all how many times I have had to wait until the next day try to explain to Patrick what I was laughing so hard about. I have even had to TEXT it to him, while we are in the same room, just because I couldn’t say it without laughing.

Anyone else have this same problem? You know what they say, laughter is the BEST medicine๐Ÿ˜‰
