Here are some battle pics!Its just the start of summer and both boys already have battle wounds too.. its only been 24 hours since Justices arrival... Pray for less injuries and more fun! heheeh ;)

Gettin' ready...

This past week we have been getting ready for our lil family vacation. Here is a hint as to where we will be going... hehee
I got both boys these tshirts to sneak into their bags as a little present. I cant wait. I hope they like them! I got Justice a pair of cool swim trunks and tried like crazy to get Hunter the same, but NO luck. ughh. I dont know why I want or feel the need to have them match.. but I do. Ive always been like that. gah! Anyway.. I think tomorrow we may hunt for some fitting swim trunks for Hunter and Todd... they have some already but want new ones. Kinda like me.. I have a swimsuit, but I wanted a new one.. the last one had to be taken up and it was a last minute deal and I really dont like it. It would do in a pinch, but this time I planned it out a bit better! haha

Here is the swimsuit I bought from Fashion Bug and the cover up to go over it. I ordered two sizes smaller than usual and its still big in the bust area.. weird cuz Im pretty busty!

What do you think? Do you like?

Its Friday!

Today I have a summer dip recipe to share... who doesn't love that? hehee

Cheese and Fruit Dip

2-3 bags of shredded cheese {use the multiple cheese blends, but not Mexican}
1/2 c. chopped fine celery
1 bunch of green onions chopped
1/2 c. pecans
enough mayo to mold the other ingredients together.
1 jar of Polanters All Fruit jelly {or any all fruit jelly} in seedless Raspberry flavor

Stir and fold into a saran-wrapped pie plate, press into the pie plate and once it has molded together in fridge for a couple hours you can flip out onto a decorative plate or platter. Spoon on some raspberry all fruit over the top and serve with Ritz or Club crackers.

This is a salty, sweet delicious dip.. I would have never thought to put all these ingredients together.. but everywhere I have taken this dip people have eaten it all up and asked for the recipe! Try it.. and enjoy! ;)

Have a great weekend!
We are off to pick up Justice tomorrow for his 3 week stay with us! I have so much planned for us.. going to be F-U-N!!! Other than that, just cleaning in store for me. Maybe going back to Fashion Bug to find some capris for vacation.. I will see if I cant post pics of the new swimsuit and cover up I bought for the trip. woot woot! ;O)

Self Sabotage!

I came across this quote tonight and thought...What a crappy way to live your life!... I know, I did for almost 40 years..."We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person doesn't care at all." Its called self sabotage.. and its serious...its a killer, a true killer of your soul.

I would like you all to know that we are all worthy of love and caring!!!

I'm so blessed by God, my boys, my husband, select friends & family...even past relationships... without the sacrifices, love, support and prayers... I wouldn't have made it, I would have continued to feel like a failure, I would have died.

So please... if you don't feel worthy..... find it in yourself and/or in someone, who will support you in your journey to find the strength to overcome those feelings.. those feelings are wrong, so wrong. And YOU can rise above it and finally allow yourself the freedom to feel and receive love. We all deserve that!

Feels Like Home

If you havent seen My Sisters Keeper... its a must, it came out in 2009 but we were just now watching it. Have a box of kleenex handy. Todd and I both bawled our eyes out. We loved the movie. Im sorry I didnt read the book. One of these days I'll have to for sure.

Here is a link to a video which is pieces of the movie and one of one of the songs from the soundtrack that I fell in love with-Feels Like Home by Edwina Hayes!.... Its just so sweet.. sad... true.

Other news: I gained about 10 pounds.. how I dont know, because I truly have been watching it.. ughh! Preparing for our trip June 12-20.. we are surprising the boys.. I cant WAIT!!!
I just have to get through these next two weeks of billing and Im out of here! woot woot!

ps: Jodie.. why did you have to go emailing me and reminding me that our "babies" are going to be SIX soon??? ... hahahaa.. will shoot you an email soon! You stinker! ;O)
