fried chicken and beauty sleep!

oh goodness...The last week or so has been pretty rough. I am pretty sure Presley is getting her teeth. It is a nightmare.. she fusses during the day and screams at night.. no one is getting much sleep around here. Poor little baby, she has no idea what is going on she is just in pain! I wish I could fix it. Today I am breaking my diet (more on that later) for the BEST fried chicken in the world. The place where I had my reception has recently opened up a small room and has an all you can eat buffet during the week. It is becoming kind of a tradition with my in-laws... 11:30 on Tues. BRIARWOOD! Tonight, I am having my dad over for dinner b/c my mom is in Chicago doing wedding stuff with my sister Danalee (who is getting married May 28th).

So about my diet.... I have a few pounds of baby weight left that I am trying to get rid of. I decided on the special K diet.. It sounded easy enough.. eat cereal or another special K approved meal for 2 meals and the 3rd meal you eat as you normally would. Today, however, I am eating 2 normal meals!(fried chicken for lunch, roast and potatoes for dinner) I have kinda been cheating all along though... the serving size of cereal is 3/4 cup.. that is NOT very much or even near enough... and the chocolate snack bars don't seem to satisfy my cravings.. so I have added desserts to my diet.. we'll see how that works:) I started the diet Saturday and so far I haven't lost any weight.. I wonder why that is!

New Blog.. New Year.. New Goals

OK... So it is 2010... This is my first blog ever so I only find it appropriate to start my first blog of the new year with goals!!! I have TONS of goals for this year. First and foremost to be a worthy example for the Lord. Second to be a better wife, mother and friend. Thirdly to be more patient.. WAY more patient and to learn to relinquish control. There are plenty more.. those are the main ones...

I found this verse during my quiet time a few weeks ago that really describes the kind of person that I want to be.. So I am going to REALLY work on that this year.

Romans 12:9-21 (The Message)

9-10Love from the center of who you are; don't fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.

11-13Don't burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don't quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.

14-16Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they're happy; share tears when they're down. Get along with each other; don't be stuck-up. Make friends with nobodies; don't be the great somebody.

17-19Don't hit back; discover beauty in everyone. If you've got it in you, get along with everybody. Don't insist on getting even; that's not for you to do. "I'll do the judging," says God. "I'll take care of it."

20-21Our Scriptures tell us that if you see your enemy hungry, go buy that person lunch, or if he's thirsty, get him a drink. Your generosity will surprise him with goodness. Don't let evil get the best of you; get the best of evil by doing good.


My precious daughter, Presley (who is now 4 and a half months old), is napping right now and as I look at her so sweet, and innocent, I wonder what kind of woman she is going to turn out to be. Will she be outgoing, will she be shy, will she be bright, funny, quirky, athletic, artistic...? I can't wait to find out.. but none of that really matters to me.. BT and I love her regardless... I just want her to seek the Lord everyday and serve Him with all that she is. I am praying Romans 12:9-21 for her. Thank you Lord for my incredible family!
