Some 2012 Goals accomplished!

January 29, 2012

Hi guys- I’ve missed you all! I’ve been out of town for the past couple of weeks and I’m glad to be back, even if it is only for a few days.

{Excuse the under eye circles- I haven’t gotten much sleep since we started training}


I know it’s soon to update on my 2012 Goals so quickly, but I was able to mark some things off my list already and was excited to share with you guys!! Here is what I have marked off on my 2012 Goals List so far:

Obtain Mobile Careers —-> Remember the Interview and exams that I blogged about- well… it paid off, because the hubby and I got the job working together as a team! We have been in training for the past couple of weeks and have been all over Texas, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi. We love that we can travel together as a family and there lots of great perks like a company car, clothing allowance, Tablet, gas card, food/hotel credit card plus we get to travel! We have the best boss {saving that for another post} and the pay isn’t half bad either!

More Trips to the Spa —–> My sister and I went and had pedicures on Friday. It was sooo nice being pampered. We plan on doing a girl’s day once per month- next month we may do a coffee/shopping trip.

{those are my sister’s feet- Becky} We decided to both go with the same nail color.


We both had men do our pedicures- they were so great, they even gently slipped our shoes on.


Acquire Wishlist Items —-> Acquired all 3 items on my wishlist- The new blendtec, DSLR Camera and a Tablet which has the Kindle App {one of the perks of my new job}- which I’ve been enjoying so much!


I think I have about 15 books downloaded right now. I’m loving not having to run to the library/book store every time that I want a new book to read♥


Dinner with two of my favorite people in the entire world!

January 27, 2012

A couple of days before we left for our job training- I packed up supplies to make my Mom dinner! It’s always nice to get one on one quality time with my Mom ♥

We played Scrabble and I won {BUT it was a super close game and we all helped each other on words!} We had so much fun- we even picked kale out of my Mom’s garden in the dark with a flashlight- so much fun!

Reunited and it feels sooo good!

January 24, 2012

The hubby and I both missed this little guy soo much! We are enjoying our day off & took a nice stroll with Roscoe, played with his toys & tonight we are grilling a huge steak for the hubby & him to share.

 It’s a long story but we’ve been training for a new job and had to leave Roscoe at the Kennel- we bought him this new bed {from TJ Maxx} to make the stay a little easier and now he is obsessed with it! We actually have to turn around and leave again {for only 3 days hopefully}- but this time my sister and her husband are going to dog sit for us- so that makes me feel much better! Does anyone else feel like kennels are like little doggie prisons? I get so upset leaving him at the kennel.

Guess what else that I’ve been reunited with?!!! My new Blendtec! I was sad to see my VitaMix & Commercial Blendtec go, but I have to say I am glad that I traded them out to get the newer Blendtec model. I’ve been obsessed with this thing since I saw Blendtec Demos several times {and tried lots of amazing samples!}- I can’t wait to try out the recipes in my new book!

 The hubby & I enjoyed a smoothie with kale, blueberries, kefir, coconut milk & bananas- I’ve missed my smoothies!

Stepping out in Faith..

January 11, 2012

I choose to let it Strengthen Me.


Wait on the Lord- his timing is always right.


 Several bad things have happened to me & the husband the past year, but through it all, we stayed strong and have prayed and held on to hope. We have the absolute faith that God is working on the plan for our future- we are waiting on the Lord. “For I know the plans I have for you, for good and not evil, plans to prosper you, plans for a hope and a future”

 Jeremiah 29:11


I can say with confidence, that God has an amazing plan for us in 2012 and we will be living proof of how to live by faith when there is nothing left to hold onto. It’s not easy stepping out in blind faith- but when we have almighty GOD on our side- how can we be afraid?


Have you ever had to step out in blind faith in your life?


Out with the Old – In with the New!!

January 10, 2012

The Old Me….


And the New Me!! There are no words- I LOVE it!!

WIDM {What I did Monday}

January 10, 2012

Monday, we went to our House to put in the air fresheners & for the hubby to add the last 3 thresh-holds, re-wire some outlets, etc.

We made a quick stop at Starbucks to pick up a Venti Italian Roast {since there is nothing at the house}


Had lunch- I had a huge spinach salad & the hubby had leftover Ribs & Macaroni

I Ran/Walked for 1 hour. I also raked up the back lawn while I waited on Reggie to finish up on everything.


I also read this entire book- I could not put it down! It was all about living life to be happy and adventure- my cup of tea!

Read my Bible.

Got a sweet package in the mail-  it was at my sister’s-she had been holding it for me.

Pizza & Wine Kind of Night…

January 9, 2012


Just what I needed after running twice today- my legs are SO sore!
