Examples of what I do in my spare time!

Here are some of the things that I have done for people...and myself! I really enjoy doing these things. I have been doing it since I had a bad experience with Rachel's birth announcements. I wanted them to be perfect and then after I ordered them on, I was so excited to get them back. Well, they were not good. I say they were awful, Brice says they weren't that bad. The picture was just SUPER red! She looked like a sunburned newborn and my original picture was NOT like that. a result, I got a new photo-editing software that Christmas and have been making creations since then....if you know someone that needs something, let me know. I am very affordable! ;) The Clark Christmas card is a little blurry.


Sad, for some reason....

Today is just one of those know, as women, we have them. Nothing bad has me, anyway. I have a wonderful life. I have a wonderful husband who constantly provides for my family, and the most amazing little girl I could have ever been blessed with. God is and always has been good to me...even in the trials. As I think about the trials I have been through in my life, I find myself thinking that life has been good, in comparison to others. Should I really compare myself to others? I think sometimes, it's healthy.

I was looking at my friend, Krista's blog today and she has a link to one of her friends and I went to her get the picture...anyway, I found a PRECIOUS precious, did I say P-R-E-C-I-O-U-S video. I know very little about this family. All I know is that there is a mom named Angie and she has a husband and 3 beautiful daughters. I know that she just had a baby girl named Audrey Caroline who died shortly after her birth. They kne…


Okay, today is the big weigh in day and I am so excited....3.8 lbs lost!!! YAY!!! They say an good average is 2 lbs per week so it will probably slow down in a week or so, but only about 3 more lbs and I will be the smallest I have been since I was a senior in high school. I am encouraged! The good part about Weight Watchers is that I can still eat foods I love and make sacrifices in other areas! I was able to eat Chick fil a twice this week and still stay on track. And, I'm telling you, those skinny cow ice creams....fabulous..I bought 3 more packages last night! =)

Rachel is still really snotty....not sure why! I also read on her operative report yesterday that the doctor took out her tonsils too...who knew???!! I certainly did not. That is something I am definitely going to ask him at our appointment on Thursday. I don't care that he did, I just thought it would have been nice to let me know. The plan was for tube placement and adenoidectomy. Hmm.... I am feelin…

I Have Come to Realize.....

That I LOVE Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches!!!!

And I really love the cookies and cream kind!

For those that don't know, I have started back on Weight Watchers...tomorrow is weigh in day but I cheated and weighed early this morning...I was a bit only showed 3 lbs lost! Then, I think....why am I disappointed....3 lbs in a week is good. I guess I am I didn't already know that! ha! I want to lose about 30 more lbs....before I get pregnant again...and who knows when I will be ready to do that! =) It frightens me a little to think about it, actually! Anyway, my first goal is 10% of my current weight, then my 2nd goal is 20, then ultimately, 30!! I am feeling like if I lose all 30 pounds that I might look kind sickly because I have a pretty big frame, but we will see!

I am kinda missing my baby! I worked yesterday and when I got home, she did not want to have anything to do with was all about Daddy...I guess she felt abandoned. I am…

My Favorite Picture

It is early in the morning.
I should be getting ready for work...well, I am but I took a bit of a break..
I was looking at this picture and wanted to share it with you all..I LOVE THIS PICTURE!! Isn't she just loveable????

I Love This Kid!

So, I have been reminded that I need to blog more....OH, and make it more interesting! =) Yes, I should. I have actually been encouraged because I had 3 THREE comments on my last blog! People do read this thing! So, I am resolving to do better blogging....

We got a nice surprise last night. Some friends of ours (mine, really) from A LONG TIME AGO called yesterday and actually came over and spent the night with us. Thankfully my house was decent enough for company. I love it that I am so spontaneous and that unexpected drop ins don't bother me....maybe that's why I fit into the emergency department setting so well...okay, chasing rabbits...back on track. So, the people that came to see us have a 4 (almost 5) year old boy. He is precious and I absolutely love him but he is rough....REALLY rough. He, as I affectionately put it, loves very rough. He wanted to hold Rachel's head and twist it around....all out of love, I am sure but it made me so nervous and not to m…

Beautiful Words....

I will blog later about actual life stuff, but I wanted to share this....

I heard this song today and it touched my heart in such a big way. I wanted to share the lyrics....

Heal the Wound by Point of Grace

I used to wish that I could rewrite history
I used to dream that each mistake could be erased
Then I could just pretend
I never knew me back then

I used to pray that You would take this shame away
Hide all the evidence of who I've been
But it's the memory of
The place You brought me from
That keeps me on my knees
And even though I'm free

Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart
Take the pieces of this heart
And heal the wound but leave the scar

I have not lived a life that boasts of anything
I don't take pride in what I bring
But I'll build an altar with
The rubble that You've found me in
And every stone will sing
Of what You can redeem

Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart

Long Time

Yep, it's me again...the no-blogging mommy!!!

Rachel is GROWING like crazy. I think I have said this before, but I LOVE THIS AGE!! This has absolutely got to be my favorite time. She is just learning so much everyday! She is doing almost all of the motions to every song that Miss Patty-Cake sings....our favorite video! She will sit in front of the TV for the entire thing....about 4 times through! She loves to sing and loves to play with her daddy.

She will be 17 months old on Monday and the time is just flying by like crazy. She has another ear infection right now and I may sound like a broken record....if it seems like she always has an ear infection, IT'S BECAUSE SHE DOES!! We just finished with antibiotics a week and a half ago and when we went for her hearing screen on Friday, she had another one....more antibiotics to start last night....this one is all different....I think we have taken just about all of the market approved antibiotics for children. So, back to …
