I am a stay at home mom of two wonderful boys. (4 and little one born this past June) I'm a northerner living in the south. Married to my best friend for 5 years!
My desire as a wife and mommy is to use anything and everything that God's given me to be the wife and mommy God wants me to be. I lack creativity and am praying for it to become my gift! :) I want my sons to flourish and have fun being kids while they learn about God. I hope to set an example for my family/sons so that they may see and experience Christ in normal daily life.
I enjoy shopping frugally and at times I like to share my success in my couponing trips.
My goal for this blog is just to share life, what God is teaching me, and maybe to bring in some new friends so that we can share together what God is doing!
Please join me as I take this journey of spiritual growth, mommyhood, marriage, frugal shopping, and all that entails, and maybe we can accomplish something together!
Feel free to comment! We all love comments!
Quick note before I get to bed... I had a WONDERFUL time in Wisconsin with my family and Joe's family! But I am HORRIBLE at taking pictures! (sigh...I don't take ANY!)
We parked our lil house in the Everson's driveway for 2 weeks in Northern Wisconsin near campus. It was nice to visit campus and see old friends and meet up with my brother and sister. It got VERY cold really fast. I grew up in the North, but I never liked the cold... : / I enjoyed the times we had with Joe's family as we had 2 weeks off of traveling and stayed at their house during that time. It was very relaxing! :)
My parents met us on campus to have an early celebration for Lincoln's first birthday. (just a month early) I had to steal these pics from my mom's facebook! :)
The Birthday Boy!
Grandpa giving Lincoln a taste of the YUMMY cake! (Thanks Mr. Gaugler!) :)
Opening gifts from Grandma and Grandpa with mommy and Grandpa!
Grandma made a special gift! She put familiar faces under the puzzle peices so that Lincoln will remember his Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Brooke, and Uncle Brennan! So cute!
Lincoln had other ideas what he should do with the puzzle peices!
More gift opening with Grandpa!
Sitting back and talking on Aunt Brooke's phone during supper.
Grandpa lets him drive on campus...
Later that week, we took the hour trip down to my hometown to stay at my parent's house for a couple days. I decieded that we needed to put together a HUGE party for the Packer/Viking game! I invited my friends and my sister came from school to make the big event! Lincoln even had a handful of grandparents attend! :) Not sure if they were there for the game or what... But even though the game didn't turn out as we would have liked, we still had fun! I wore my Brett jersey from his Packer days...But I DID NOT cheer for him.
The Friday before we left, a bunch of our friends from the college, siblings, and their friends, went out bowling. I miss those days of young college bliss! It was fun, but I was in the mothering mood and Lincoln was running a low fever. He did so well in his stroller watching everyone bowl and did not complain one bit!
We left for Escanaba, MI and did Revival America in the Sunday Evening service. From there we were off to Pittsford, MI where we had a short week of meetings. All through this, both Everson family's on the BRM team were sick. I think I got through it without getting the ruff end of it. But poor Joe and Lincoln were up countless times b/c of trouble breathing due to congestion. (and that takes a toll on mommy)
We just got in at the church in Williamstown, WV and will be doing a FULL week of meetings here. Hopefully we are all recovered from all our sickies.
It's been an exhausting couple weeks...ready to head down south. :) But now I need to go to bed. *Night!*
