We should be moved in before the end of October! We are so excited. I will post pictures tomorrow evening. *smiles* Could I be more excited? I think not. Not remotely possible.

(btw: this photo is from google.com it is not the house we purchased. lol.)


Fall is here!

Hello fellow bloggers! Sorry my posts are so far and few between. *frowns* I have been one super-busy Momma these past couple of months. Can you believe Fall is here? Already?! Wow. The summer flew by, for sure. R.A. turned 4 in July and we were going to put him in pre-k 4 but decided last minute to keep him home another year. *smiles* Kids need time to be kids. Ya know?

We have been very crafty the past few days around here. (I will post pictures soon. *winks*) I am so happy Fall is here! It is my favorite season of all! I have my Yankee Candle tart warmers runnin' full steam, baking pies, canning salsa, chili, jams, juices, and more! Gosh I love Fall! Have I mentioned that already? lol. I decorated/stenciled some pumpkins today. For the first time, I tried something new. And guess what? I loved it! (Will post pictures of those as well. *winks*)

R.A. and I made some stencil leaves on paper with colored pencils, a pine cone bird feeder, window shapes, and more! Already! And it isn't even October. *happy sigh* Also...did I mention...WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF BUYING A HOUSE! We have been looking for the past couple of months...and well, we really like this one. *smiles* It is in the country and it is beautiful! It has soooo much room for our family of four. We need way more space than this 2 bedroom apartment is giving us. Don't get me wrong, I am very thankful to the good Lord above, that He has given us a roof over our head, food on our table, cars to drive, and clothes on all of our backs. It would just be nice to have a place for our boys to play. And room to 'roam'. Everything happens in HIS timing though. I need to keep reminding myself of that.

And...I started a new book series a month or two ago. It is by Maggie Stiefvater. I love her! First book, "Shiver". Second book, "Linger". Third book, "Forever". Amazing books! You must read them. Go on. Do it. Read it. Now! lol. Seriously though, very good books! If you like "Twilight", you will LOVE these books!

Okay...so I've rambled on enough. Will update soon. Well - I'll try atleast *winks*


Twilight Birthday Party

{My Birthday Cake}

Long time no blog! Wow! Sorry for the lack of updates. Alot has happened in my life lately. I am learning to spend more time with my family. My husband is back in my life and we couldn't be better - thanks to all of the prayers from our family, friends, and church family. (and fellow bloggers - you know who you are. *winks*) We have hosted my 24th birthday party at our apartment, went to a Kansas concert, and visited our local County Fair. *smiles*

We have been plenty busy, that's for sure. In the mean time I am dealing with a health problem. Doctors think it is Lupus. I see a Rheumatologist later this month. Prayers would be appreciated. But I am feeling great today - and that is what I am focusing on now.

We are in the process of buying a house as well. It is beautiful and it is perfect for us. We meet with the people at the bank in a week or so. It is really just up to them, because my husband knows the lady that is selling the house, and she is offering it to us for 30 k LESS than what it is on the market for. So it is up to the bank to decide if we are 'allowed' to have the house. But I know that everything works together for good, for those who believe in the Lord. And I do. I know that it is in HIS timing. Not mine. So I am praying that He has His will and way. He knows we love the house - but we know that it will happen only if God thinks we are ready. :)

So anyway - I had my Twilight party! Yay! It was amazing! I will post Part II another day with more pictures of amazing party favors and decor! You won't want to miss it!!!

Hope everyone had a great summer! I know for me and our little family, we are READY for FALL! *smiles*
