What's Going On?

With us? WORK....a WHOLE LOTTA WORK!!! I am at work now about to get the day started. Not much new to report.....just dealing with a toddler....a very needy, cranky toddler. She has a sinus infection and is on Augmentin again. Maybe the antibiotics will cure the temper tantrums too...ya think?!

I am ready for August to be over...oh, wait...August hasn't started yet, has it? After August I will not be working as much. I just find it difficult to keep up with everything. I am hitting the jewelry business hard and heavy next month - doing 10 shows in the month! I have to slow down working 3 and 4 days a week or I will crash and burn.

We have several activities going on soon...birthday parties, anniversary getaway, more work, jewelry parties.......the list goes on! It will make the time go by faster....before I know it, my child is going to be grown.....maybe that's the cure for temper tantrums.

Yesterday Rachel went to daycare because I had to work. When I picked her …

Whirlwind!

Yeah, so my headline totally describes my life lately! Let me just say, to summarize, GOD IS AMAZING!!! There is so much going on with us right now. Here is some of it.....

I had my training show last night to kick off my jewelry business and my friends really came through for me! There were 20 people there not including me or my sponsor!!! My house was packed and I enjoyed every bit of it!!! We ate yummy snacks and played in tons of pretty jewelry! I had a great show in terms of sales and I got a lot of free jewelry. I am so thankful to God for the awesome friends in my life. I can't wait to pick out all of my free jewelry! OH...and I got 10 bookings in August!!! I will be a busy lady but I will meet my goal if all of the shows go through!!! I am so excited about this new adventure.

This week is VBS and boy am I ever exhausted! The kiddos are learning the songs and the motions and are doing a great job but I feel like we sing the same song about 15 times a day....wait.…

FUN STUFF!!

We have had a fun couple of days! I worked on July 4th and Rachel and Daddy stayed home doing nothing...I think they enjoyed it! Saturday was pretty uneventful.....we went to Target and bought some containers so that I could put all of my clothes away that are TOO BIG!!! YAY!! It was also a sneaky way to allow my husband to see that I really don't have too many clothes!!! None of them fit! =) Sunday was church and we came back here and relaxed all day.

Here is a picture of Rachel from Sunday. Rachel's dress was adorable....went to her ankles....


Brice had yesterday off too so we all went to Hawaiian Falls waterpark in Mansfield for a little water fun after Rachel's nap. It was a lot of fun except for the part where I fell down the stairs leading into the lazy river and in an attempt to keep my child's head above water (I was holding her), I tumbled down about 4 stairs, twisted my ankle, hit my knee, and scraped up the side of my leg all while swallowing a lot of water...…

Sometimes....

There are just things you see that are too precious for words....what about this?????
This is Josiah Luke, one of my best friend's little boy. He is just adorable!!! I love him!

A Little of This.....

So, I have been terrible about taking pictures. Sorry.....she looks the same.....

I have been working like a dog over the past couple of weeks. Let me just say that I am FOR SURE earning my paycheck! There is a girl that I work with that just got married this past weekend and I have been covering her floors....ortho!! WOW BABY!! I can just say that she works her tail off!! Today was a little different. I was pretty excited because I hit the ground running and was doing well being caught up until one of my patients coded. After chest compressions for about 10 minutes, I called the son, he came. They started another round of chest compressions.....son was COMPLETELY distraught....he asked them to stop....they did. It was very sad. Anyway, that consumed my ENTIRE morning! In the midst of all of this something kinda humorous happened. I called the funeral home to arrange for them to pick up the body and I gave them demographic info.....they asked for time of death and I asked …

We have this new little place here in Grand Prairie that is called Splash Factory....basically, it is glorified sprinklers! =) Super cool for just $1! I can deal with that. Rachel had a good time. We went with some friends from church. Here are some pictures. This was on Monday....
