Memories Monday Meme

Well I'm going to try to participate in this weekly meme hosted over at

Each week we are to post about a current or past memory. Well I'm going to keep this entry brief because it's late and I actually need to get kids into bed and it's 11pm already.

But a few weeks ago my 2nd oldest Arianna asked if we could do a family Bible study. I think she is just craving to be spiritual fed. My husband is a pastor but we were sent to a church with lots of problems. That in itself has taken a toll on my kids. My praying for a new call, hopefully to New Jersey.

I was so proud of my girl to hear her ask for that. I was completely shocked because she seems to have suffered the most while we are here. I was really worried about her for awhile in regards to her own faith. But now I can see that God's grace abounds.

I finally got down past the 150 mark on the scale. I felt like I was stuck above that for forever. I've been trying really hard to follow the weight watchers points system and to exercise several times a week. I think so far I've lost around 16lbs but way more is coming off in inches. I started at around an 18/20 and am down to a 11/12 on average but some jeans run small from certain companies like Old Navy and Aeropostale so then I'm about a 13/14. I'm not sure how long it will take me to get to my ultimate goal which would be around 110lbs but I'm hoping by the end of the summer if not sooner. Wish me luck.

DOUBLE DIGITS!!- Happy Birthday

Today is my daughter Annaliese's 10th birthday. She has been counting down the days for weeks now until she would turn 10, "double digits." She will be having a little party of this coming Saturday so today I'm going to take her with me to Eau Claire and shop for party supplies, dinner, and head over to the store Justice.

Happy Birthday Sweetie!! I love you!
