Manly Advise

Last night my husband and I were driving my son to his sleep over party and we were discussing what we might do for the evening. We wanted to make it special, take advantage of the fact that we were alone!!! But some day's it's hard to come up with something to do when your just too tired to move, so we were both stumped.
As my husband was himming and haaing my son interrupted him and gave him some manly advise.
"Dad, Why don't you go get a romantic movie and make some popcorn."
We were so stumped by his remark that we didn't know what to say. I think the silence made him think that he had an opportunity to go on.
"Dad, sometimes I sit through moms romantic movie just to practice and get used to what I'll need to do when I have a wife."
ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What do you say to that??? I turned to applaud my son and through the corner of my eye I could see my husband face turn a shade of pink.

So what do you think we did last night? We rented a movie!!!
I know my son will have a very happy wife. Sigh.........

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

It's time to party!!! The ultimate blog party has begun and I encourage all of you to join in the fun. I can't wait for the opportunities that I'll have to meet other blogger buddies, share and hear all that might be going on in our world or in our homes. I don't have any wine or goodies to share but I might have some cheese. Or should I say that I might have something cheesy to say. That would be like me.

This is my family.

I'll be celebrating my tenth anniversary with my husband this year. He is the love of my life. He's filled me inspiration and help me gain confidence in the way I see myself and the person that God wants me to be. He's a man who makes you want to work hard a try harder because he always wants more. This is not a bad thing people, he motivates me. He always wants to be a better husband, father, friend, employee, what ever he focuses on.

And then theres my son. Jadden is a 10 year old, fun loving guy. I couldn't really say that his interests are focused on just one thing. It's a wide stretch from hockey to science and every thing in between. Right now he's just trying to survive. Hockey's done and soccer's in a couple of months and he can't wait for school to be done.

Now for me, I'm a stay at home mom. Thinking about getting a job in the future but I'm very comfortable in my safe home. I help my father out on his dairy farm during the summer months and spend the rest of my time in my gardens and providing my family with a great home atmosphere, clean cloths and what ever else they might need. I'm a child of God and aim for my son to know the true love of Christ and His amazing gifts.

What I love:

1) Refinishing furniture

2) Studying Gods word

3) Gardening

4) Music that inspires me. (Love to attach myself to the lyrics)

5) My husband and son

6) Spending time with my friends and family.

7) Dreaming about decorating my home

8) The fact that I live less then a 1/4 mile away from most of my immediate family.

9) My home and my country yard

10) Knitting through the winter months

11) Singing

12) Watching my son and my husband play sports

13) Cheese cake smothered in caramel sauce

14) Camping with my husbands family

15) Watching my family grow in their faith and love God

I hope you all enjoy this post. I hope to meet a lot of new people so make sure to leave a comment so I know where to find you.

Biggest Loser

I've found my all time favorite show. The Biggest Loser had given me so much inspiration so I decided to get involved in The Biggest Loser League!!!

It's a free on line program that gives you challenges through out the week and it gives you the opportunity to become a team member and get to know new people dealing with the same problems I struggle with. The worst issue I have is just pure laziness. I now get to view my progress through percentages of how close I am to my goal weight, my BMI and charts to record my food in take and measurements.

I started working on loosing some of my weight as soon as I started watching this show so I'm already 52% away from my goal weight. I don't know how dedicated I will be able to be with this whole thing. Theres a lot of documenting to do daily(Totally not my thing). My biggest reason to join was the support from others and extra healthy tips that I can use.

Check it out if your interested.
