Not much to say....

Ok, so I guess this will be my "weekly post"...even though there's not much to say?! Not too much has changed since my post last week, but I'll try to come up with something! :) Hmmm....well, January is almost over and now we're getting ready for the busy month of February!! But before I get to that, I must ask for prayer!! I don't know if I mentioned this last week, but Michael started flight lessons about a month ago. And tomorrow will be his first SOLO FLIGHT! Just the thought of Michael flying makes me a nervous wreck, but this is something he's always wanted to do, so I'm trying to be supportive!! However; I do need yall to pray for us both tomorrow as he goes up by himself! And then, after that....he's flying with some guys from our church to a Men's Conference in Woodstock, GA. Pray that the Lord will open his heart to His word this weekend, and that Michael will be refreshed as he spends time with the Lord and the guys in our church! Thanks :) Ok, now on to February....busy busy busy!! I always like to break down the month in "weekends", because for those of us who work, weekends are pretty much our only social life, ha! So, Feb 5-8 we're going to the beach with some couples from our church. One of the couples, Ryan & Whitney, have a condo in Perdido Key, so we're all going (kid-less) to just relax and enjoy adult fellowship! WooooHoooo!!! But 3 nights away from Abby is a stretch for me, so we'll see how that goes. And then, Feb 13-we're having a Valentine's Day get together with our Sunday School class, and Feb 14-is of course Valentine's Day, yayyyy!! Does anyone have any suggestions on a good VDay happy for a hubby? I try to be real creative every year, but this year I just haven't come up with anything?! HELP!!!!! The weekend of Feb 20-22, we have my mom's birthday and the charity ball. Never been to the charity ball, so if anyone has some advice or comments to share....please do share! And then Feb 27-Mar 1, we have NOTHING! I always love "nothing weekends" because all we do is lay around in our pj's til Sunday's my favorite thing in the world to do! Cook big meals, watch movies, play dolls & dress up, cuddle, and just hang out with my babies....I L-O-V-E it!! Well, now that I've shared what we're doing during February, I guess that frees me up to write my next post in MARCH! Hahahahahahahahaha!!!! JK! Hopefully I'll have some more exciting "happenings" before then! Please share your comments and Valentine's Day ideas with me....I look forward to hearing back. One last thing....we have an "unspoken prayer request"...I don't want to share details, but please be praying for our family. God knows. ;)

My first "official" blog

Ok, so I've decided to try this whole "blogging" thing! I don't promise to be the best at it, but I think it'll be fun to keep everyone updated on daily life (or maybe weekly life ha!)...and get feedback! So, this is my first official blog...and I think I'll keep it pretty simple! Life is good. And when I say good, I mean very tiring, and repetitive, very slow paced, and crazy at times! But through all the tiresome, crazy, slow paced days....God is still blessing our family in ways that I can't even fathom! I mean, sure....I'd love to be in a house right now, with 2 kids, a big yard, a little lab puppy, and be debt free! But that's not where God has us right now, so we'll continue taking it a day at a time, going through the valleys, and rejoicing on the mountaintops...until God brings us to the next step in our journey. Where are we in our journey right now? Well, we're living for free, saving money, paying off debt, going through a "40 Days of Purpose" study, hanging out with friends, making time for just "us", and letting the hard times draw us closer to the Lord. You know...I like to put a time limit to everything: in 6 months we'll have all our debt paid off, in a year we'll be in a house, by the time we're 30 we'll have 3 kids, etc....but what do I know? NOTHING! God is the one who has my life all planned out, not me! And as hard as it is to hand complete control over to's just what I have to do, on a daily (minutely ha!) basis. So, in the meantime...I'm going to research my God-given purpose, take care of the "me" in mommy, and strive to be the best little wife that I can be :)
