Movies and Jeremiah 29:11

Last night we went to go see Toy Story was Mary, her friend Dawson and me! It was in 3D, and the kids loved it! The end was kinda scary, and sad! It kinda surprised me how scary it was (for a kids movie)

It got over at 8:40 and Mary was exhausted, so she crashed when we got home. I am trying to spend as much quality time with her as I can, as the time that she goes back to her Dad comes closer and closer.

I had a mini breakdown last night when I was talking to Rick, because I was thinking about my situation with Mary, and jeremiah 29:11...and how God promises that He has a plan for our lives, and as a christian I believe that with all of my ♥. But after that verse, you read that the people were exiled for a LONG time, before God brought them back. They had to trust God, and know that someday they would be saved. And I know that ultimately that is what all my struggles are about, trusting that my God, my savior and my best friend...knows whats best for me, and my family. But it still sucks when I'm walking through it. I have to tell my self all the time that I need to trust Him, and if I'm not walking by faith, then I'm not walking in His path. I know that when she goes back to her Dad, I will miss her....but I also know that God loves that little girl more than I can ever ever imagine, and if I remain faithful to Him, He will be faithful to me, and His promises that I live my life believing!

Happy Thursday!

Wedding Dresses

I had to share this because is was PRECIOUS! and if I put it on here, it will be forever engraved in time! HA!

Last night I was putting clothes away, and Organizing my closet...Mary LOVES to try on my clothes, especially dresses!

She tried on my wedding dress from when I married her dad...when she put it on she said "Mommy, when I grow up, I want to wear this dress when I get married!" I almost started to cry! My mom always told me that she wanted me to wear her wedding dress when I got married, but I didnt...and I kinda feel bad about it! I will never remind Mary that she said that, but it was sooo very precious!!

She also loves to try on my shoes!

bird cages and sickness

I AM BECOMING MORE AND MORE FORGETFUL!!! Yesterday was one of my friends birthday, she was turning the big her husband was throwing her a birthday bash! I made a yummy taco dip and headed over to her house with Mary. When I got there, I realized that I was supposed to be meeting one of my clients at my house to do her wedding hair run through!! It was 6:15 at the time, and she was supposed to meet me at 6!! So Mary and I rushed back home, but on the way there I checked my cell phone..and I had a voicemail, from my client, she was letting me know that she was running late so she wouldnt be to my house until 6:45ish!! HA! God is good, and I wasnt super late.she thought she was late..I HATE to be late because in my book LATE = UNPROFFESSIONAL!

The girl that is getting married is actually a girl I went to high school with, she was 3 grades below me...she is gorgeous and I was honored that she asked me to do her hair! I asked her why she asked me (she lives in New Mexico and I havent seen her in YEARS) and she told me it was because I was always so gorgeous and put together, and that my hair and makeup was perfect..and then when she found out I did hair, she thought I would be perfect! How cool is that??!!

She had a "birdcage veil" and I had NO CLUE, what that was so I did a little googling and this is what I found... the style is so pretty and hers is very similar to this one! We will do doing some FABULOUS hair with this veil! I cant wait!
Then last night, Mary woke up in the middle of the night with a horrible tummy ache, she was crying and curled up in a little ball...she was up for about 3 hours, I felt so bad because my baby girl was hurting and I couldnt fix it! I gave her a chewable pepto, and some applesauce...and she finally fell back asleep. I hate it when she is sick and I cant make her better!!
So we didnt take her to fingerprints today, she came to work with me. But since I was up the majority of the night, I was way tired today, and feel all stuffed up and kinda sickly. Needless to say, I hope it all goes away before Saturday!
Its only tuesday and Saturday could not get here any faster!!! Viva Las Vegas!!

Fathers day and Puppies!

What an awesome weekend! We had so much fun!

Friday hung out at uncle is engaged to a fabulous woman who ♥'s fashion, and she had a ton of clothes that she wanted to get rid of, and she just so happened to have some clothes that fit Megan and Kendra, so they were having a fashion show trying things on. When Megan went into the office to try something else on, Mary grabbed one of the boxes and layed in it, all curled up. Then she knocked on the door! I said " what are you doing" she replied " Mom, I am being a puppy, like someone left me at the door!" HAHA! She has the best imagination!

Saturday, We ran errands, and I stopped at the hospital to see my friend Tileena and her new baby girl Addison! She is just perfect, and it made me have the baby itch even more!! I also ran by the diamond shop, because they were having a sale on Vera Bradley, so I got two new little treasures!!

we had one of Mary's friends over, and we had movie night...they were all so worn out!We decided to watch Cars...but they didnt even last through the whole movie!
Sunday we went to church, Rick had to work, so it was just the kids and I...I hate it when he has to work on sundays! After church my Dad came in and he surprised me by telling me he wanted to buy Rick a new grill for fathers day! So we went to costco and bought a grill....its awesome!!! We grilled steak for the adults and hot dogs for the kids, and Rick was sooooo surprised when he got home!
The kids build an awesome fort in Megan and Mary's room....I think they used EVERY blanket in the whole house!
We gave my Dad all kinds of fun treasures, but He just loved spending time with the kids!
Me and my Daddy! I am so thankful to have him as my father...

I got this CUTE skirt for mary at costco...She looked ADORABLE today!!

Happy Monday!!!

Fit throwing and ice cream

So last night was the first night of the week that we had the other kids. When we got home, I had the kids start on their chores, and everything was going fine...until dinner...Mary didnt want to eat, and it turned into her screaming at me and crying, so I finally just have two choices 1. you eat and you can have a popsicle. 2. you dont eat, and you dont get a popsicle. She decided not to eat...but that was after she threw a HUGE fit! Mind you this is my child that does not throw fits!! So that drama was over....until the kids started playing downstairs and fighting! Mary was screaming at the top of her lungs at Colton..I couldnt figure out what the problem was! When she came upstairs, that again turned into a huge fit when I told her that she needed to lay down! I mean HUGE fit...screaming, yelling, kicking! I thought aliens had abducted my child!
I took her downstairs and layed with her till she fell asleep...she was SOOO tired! It was cute cause she kept patting my face saying " I love you so much Mommy" ...I was rubbing her back, and singing to her...she fell asleep in 10 minutes..No joke!

I texted Rick and told him I would love him to death if he brought me home cotton candy ice cream from baskin robbins...and I wasnt sure if he really would...but when he walked in the door, he had it in his hand!!
If you've never had this sweet manna from are SO missing out...its pink and purple..and OH so good!

The perfect end to a not so perfect night!

Happy friday ya'll!!

Pedicures and Pappy!

We had the BEST night last night! After I picked Mary girl up from fingerprints..we went to get pedicures!!! I have been wanting to get my toes done for a while, and since we are going to Vegas next weekend, I thought it was the perfect time!

Mary had a blast! She has been getting pedicures with me since she was 3, and she LOVES them! like mother like daughter! HA!

Then after our pedis we ran to the store to pick up some things for dinner...and then hurried home cause my dad was coming for dinner and to watch LOST! We do this every friday and wednesday night, since we lost my mom. I wish that we spent more ti
me together before my mom passed away, but it did make us realize how important our time together is. I cherish each and every moment now!!

My dad walk with a cane, because of his MS, and Mary thought she needed a cane too...
She could almost use it as a crutch! HA!

We are going to Las Vegas next weekend and Mary is so excited (we are too!) Vegas was one of my mom's favorite places..and she always carried these awesome sparkly my dad brought them in for Mary to have, and to take to Vegas! She was sooooo excited! She kept saying "Oh, thank you Pappy! Oh, Pappy I love you!!"

She looks so cute in these pictures! She loves her Pappy so much! ♥

We ate pork chops for dinner, and then Mary took a bath and we watched LOST! That show is SO addicting! No joke ya'll...we have been watching for almost 3 months now, we are on the second season! My dad bought all of them on DVD! I cant wait till friday! HA!

I wanted to post today about Mary, and the amazing little girl she is becoming! I can’t believe that my baby is 6!

Mary, I cant believe how beautiful and smart you are!! You are sooo smart! You love to spell things, and I cant believe how many words you can read! It is so hard for me to not know a lot about your school, and your teachers, but everytime you come home, you are smarter and smarter!

One of your favorite things to do is to see a sign, and ask “mommy, what does W A L M A R T spell??” Then I tell you, what the word is and you say “ Oh, yeah its Walmart!” like you knew all along! Its sooo cute!

You love to tell me that you love me, you say it probably about 5 times an hour…and I LOVE IT! Hearing “ I love you mommy” makes my heart so full, I cant even begin to tell you how much I love you, and how proud of the little girl that you are.

You love to sing praise and worship music!! We bought you the veggie tales worship CD, and you know almost all of the words to the songs! There couldn’t be anything sweeter than hearing praise to our God come out of your sweet little mouth!! It so makes me smile!

You love string cheese! You would eat about 4 or 5 a day if I let you!

You love to snuggle…and I love it too!

You love to wear dresses, you want to wear a dress every day!!

You love love love my makeup! You want to put it on every morning! Your favorite thing is eyeshadow and lip stick!

You love to read…we check out books from the library, I read them to you, and then you read them to me!

I wish more than anything that you could be here with us all of the time, and I know that someday, you will….But for right now, I just want you to know how very very much I love you, and how very very much God loves you! You told me earlier this month, that Jesus lives in your heart, and I am so very glad that he does. I pray for you every day when you are away from me, that God gaurds your heart, your mind and your body….and I know that he does.

You are an amazing little girl, and I am so proud to call you my daughter!

A day behind!

Well, I didn't post yesterday, Rick was sick, and I had Dr. we had to go to Spokane. I did get a chance to return a few things that I purchased last month ( I hate to try things on in the store, and I am a TOTAL impulse shopper, so I return a lot of things!!) I returned a few things to target and a few things to Lane Bryant..but I bought a dress and a new ring!! We ate dinner at Red Robin, and then we brought home krispie kremes...YUM!! (I also brought some home as a thank you to our sales staff at work!) It sucks that we don't have a Target here in the Valley....this area needs to get with it!! Anyways...that's it for today!! Gotta get to work!

On a side note, I have decided to make my car a "no phone zone" I spend WAY too much time texting, talking and even face booking or twittering on my phone...its dangerous..and I need to STOP. So that's my resolution for now.
