Scripture Sunday: James 1:14-26

It's been a rough week. We found out that a friend that we consider family will be leaving us on January for another base. We also found out that some people we thought were our friends weren't really. My own heart has been up and down with emotion, probably because of my medication, but if you add it all up it just equals a really difficult week to get through.

Thankful Thursday

I am having a hard time being thankful today. Overall, it hasn't been a good day. Still, I feel it's important to find the silver lining in every rain cloud, so I am going to try.

Weekly Weigh In: Week 2

So, I still don't have the nerve to post my actual weight. I am a wuss. I am hoping that I will get the nerve in the next few weeks, but I am so saddened by my weight. I hate that there are situations I can't control that effect my weight. I would never be a small woman. I'm just not build that way, but I want to be healthier. I hate that I have conditions that can cause my weight to change as much as 20lbs in a week and a half. Hopefully the medication I am on will start working. GO MEDS!!!

Scripture Sun...errrr...Monday: 1 Corinthians 13:3-13

So, I am doing Scripture Sunday on a Monday. With the holiday and other things going on in the home, I just didn't have the time to get online yesterday to post. I feel badly, but you know what they say about "better late than never".

This week I want to share a verse that is well known in various forms.

Flashback Friday: Fathers


It only seems fitting that this week's Flashback Friday has to do with Fathers.

Thankful Thursday

This is my first Thankful Thursday, and I really like the idea! They do it every week over at The Nut House, and I love it! After all, in the day in and day out of life, sometimes we all need to step back and realize that there are several things to be thankful for. Even on the worst days.

Weekly Weigh In

So, here's the deal...I think this is a great idea. Over at Marvelous Mommy they are doing a Weekly Weigh In. You post your weight, and are encouraged to post a picture, for the whole blogging world to see. The idea is that you will be able to show off your weight loss...but you will also be showing off gain...

Oh Yum!

I was checking out some of the blogs that I read and saw a post about Dr. Pepper Cake over at the Trendy Treehouse! If you know me at all, you know how I feel about Dr. Pepper, so I am going to have to try this sometime soon. Maybe for our 4th of July bar-b-q. If anyone gets the chance to try it before me, let me know how it went. Also, swing over to the Trendy Treehouse to let her know you tried it too, since she is the one who posted it to begin with!

Baby I'm Amazed By You

My son amazes me! This is a daily occurrence. I am so blessed to have such an amazing little person in my life. The last few days he has been particularly amazing though!

Medical Update

If I seem like I am around a little less than usual for the next week or so, it's because of my new medication.

I got to see my new endocrinologist this past week, and I really like him. The man really seems to know what he's talking about, which is more than I can say for most of the people I talk to out here. He even raised my Synthroid, saying that I probably haven't been on the right dosage for years. Apparently, most doctors goals are to have someone with a thyroid disorder get their levels down to normal for someone with that disorder...Dr. Krueger's goal is to get my levels down to normal for anyone.

Scripture Sunday: Mark 10:13-16 & Ephesians 6:1-4

Our son turns 14 months old today. It's all gone by so quickly, and it has all been such a blessing! Because of this mini "birthday" I wanted this week's scripture to reflect children, not just their mention in the Bible, but our place as their parents to teach them and guide them towards leading a good life and having a relationship with Jesus.

It Starts

So...we started cloth diapering today. It went well. In fact, it went so well that I wrote not one, but two blogs about it over on my cloth diapering blog! Feel free to go check them out.

Flashback Friday: Sophia Marie

This weeks's Flashback Friday was going to highlight my brother and my high school graduations, since we both just celebrated our graduation anniversaries this past week. (9 years for me, 3 years for him.) I couldn't find our pictures though, so will have to go with something else. Maybe graduation pictures will take over the spotlight next week.

Through My Son's Eyes

If you know me at all, you know that I have the self-esteem of a not-very-confident-cockroach. (My cousin told me I should write a children's book about a not-very-confident-cockroach, but the thought kind of gives me the heebie jeebies. Maybe one day.)

Just Another Manic Monday

Another new pictures, another new quote, another new week. It doesn't even really feel like I had a weekend with hubby on weekend duty all weekend. We'll make up for it next weekend though.

Nine years ago today I graduated from high school. I don't know why that makes me feel so old. I'm only 26, which some days still feels very young to me. (Some days I feel ancient though.) I just can't believe that it's been none years. It just seems like it went by so very fast! It makes me wonder how fast the next 9 years will go. My goodness, my son will be ten in nine years! I don't think I'm even ready to think about that.

Scripture Sunday: Romans 12:9-21

I am going to try, every week, to share some scripture that has meaning towards the week I had or the week I want to have. 

If you are not Christian or not religious I hope that you will not be offended. This is for me and something that means something to me. I am not ashamed of my Christianity, nor will I hide it in hopes of keeping friends or followers. 

That being said, this weeks scripture comes from Romans, chapter 12:9-21.

The USAF: Reflections

Looking at my blog, I guess I really don't blog about the Air Force much. I probably should. After all it's a major part of our lives...and often a frustrating one...and blogging is one of my main sources for venting my frustrations.

Flashback Friday: Because It's The Thing To Do

A few of my friends are doing this on their blogs, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon before it gets too full and I can't find a seat. Can't say if I'll do it every Friday, but it seems like it might be fun.

Healthy Mommy Pledge

  I got this from my friend, Mrs. Muffins over at her blog. I love the idea, and wanted to re-post it here! Goodness knows I have enough working against my health, I don't need to be working against it myself! So, I signed the pledge, and hope you will too!

Thank You For Being A Friend

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I've seen this idea on several other blogs and have decided to jump on the band wagon! The idea of Wordless Wednesdays is to share pictures on your blog! Since we all know how much I love taking pictures, I think Wordless Wednesdays are a wonderful idea!
