Bloggers get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly

Almost every Christmas since I've been married, I have ordered Photo Christmas Cards from from Shutterfly. We usually chose one simple picture with no design or writing on the outside and write our holiday message on the inside...this way our picture could later be framed and used as a very simple, yet perfect,Christmas gift. This year I am excited to know that  Bloggers get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly! I never ordered more than about 25 cards and only sent them to close family and friends. This year I am going to order all 50 FREE cards and send them ALL out!  I plan to do a more "festive" card this time and I'm not quite sure which design to use....

A Story Card?

A collage style Card?

A Sweet & Simple Card?

Or Should I Stick With The Same Old "Just A Picture" Type Of Card?

Whats YOUR Vote?

Oh! And did you know that Shutterfly has a bunch of gift options for Christmas too?? Like the Canvas Wall Art or the Wall Calenders!?!? Be sure to take a look!

30 Days of Truth (Day 06)


Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do.

I hope I never have to hear someone tell me that I let them down. I'm not sure if the people around me realize it... I sometimes feel like I have to please. But I don't mind it either. I think that may go back to my self consciousness...I guess I feel that if I do the right thing(s) or do them well enough I'll get some kind of recognition. I feed off of good report. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

30 Days of Truth (Day 05)


Day 5: Something you hope to do in your life.

I'll keep this one simple. I want to go to school until I cant anymore. I want to be the best Mom to my children that I can. I want the best marriage possible. I want a job that I love. A big one...I want health and happiness for all of my family and friends.

30 Days of Truth (Day 04)


Day 4: Something you have to forgive someone for. 

I didn't meet my real Dad until I was 23. My Mom had me when she was twenty. Neither my Mom or my real Dad were ready for me...but of course, my Mom sorta had no choice because she was the one carrying me.  I know more so now that over the years of my childhood he had tried to contact my Mom about me. My Dad (that raised me since I was 2) made sure there would be no contact. I understand that he thought that he had no rights to have contact with me. If he wanted those right he would have been there from day 1. My real Dad pretty much quit trying to contact me until...

He Found me on MySpace! He sent me an email and it took me a minute to realize who "Jon" was. I didn't hesitate to write back. I called him soon after. We called/text-ed for a few months. I actually "met" him for the first time the day before I graduated from nursing school. We continue keep in contact with each other. 

So... I forgive him. I cant say that I never had a Dad, because I did. Wade raised me, and for that I am thankful. My mom had no hard feelings about it....so I never heard a bad word. I am just happy that now I have my "real" Dad.  And hey...now I know where a lot of my characteristics come from!

30 Days of Truth (Day 03)


Day 3: Something you have to forgive yourself for.

This is an easy one. I don't forgive myself...for anything. I learn from everything. I feel like if I have to forgive myself for something, then that makes me regret it. I may or may not have made the best choices to date. Though, I have learned from them all. It may be as little as eating eating that extra piece of pie for Thanksgiving, resulting in a little more weight. But DAMN THAT WAS SOME GOOD PIE! (No regrets!)  It could be that the lack of communication I had with my husband, took a toll on our marriage. If we had never separated, we would never have the understanding of each other that we do today. 

Do you regret anything thats worth forgiving yourself for?

30 Days of Truth (Day 02)


Day 2: Something you love about yourself.

I thought about this one for a while. I feel conceded verbalizing what I love about myself. But after some thought...

I love that I continue to push myself to make my dreams come true. I've learned over the past year that I cannot plan my whole life, though I would like to. I have learned that life is much less stressful if I allow things to fall into place on their own. Yet, I still strive to make the best of every situation. I love that despite all of the "Don't get married yet, your so young." and the "Your Pregnant? Didn't you just get married." stop me from being a young Army Wife, young Mom, a full-time student (now a nurse), and a sometimes single Mom (due to deployments). I love that I choose to get an early start and to not let any of that stop me from full-filling ALL of my dreams and those to come. What are your dreams in life?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving From My Family To Yours!

30 Days of Truth (Day 01)


Day 1: Something you hate about yourself.

Stretch marks or striae (singular stria), as they are called in dermatology, are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. They are caused by tearing of the dermis, and over time can diminish but not disappear completely.

I wont lie, I'm very self conscious. I hate my weight and the effects that pregnancy has taken on my body. Now, granted I weighed more before I became pregnant with Kade, than I do now. But I had two huge babies. I gained 35lbs with Kade and about 50lbs with Kyson. For some reason the scale keeps telling me that I have lost it all...but the mirror begs to differ. I have stretch marks from hell! I have decided that my stomach looks like Freddy Krueger's face...and its just as scary!!

Okay, okay...maybe its not that bad...buts it's still just as scary. It is streched so bad that the skin is loose. So even if I lost 100% of the fat on my stomach it would look even worse because then it would be shriveled! ewww! Can anyone relate? 

Stretch marks or striae (singular stria), as they are called in dermatology, are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. They are caused by tearing of the dermis, and over time can diminish but not disappear completely.

Needless to say, no cream can fix what I have...I need a tummy tuck!!! I would LOVE to have a stomach like this....

Actually, the rest of that body would be nice too...
