Dream Vacation!!

I have said since we have gotten married that I wanted to go to Hawaii for our 10th wedding anniversary.  We will celebrate 10 years of marriage on August 7th and we just returned from an 8 day trip to Hawaii!  I am one spoiled girl and I cannot wait to share our trip with you!!  God is so good to me...far beyond what I deserve.

View from my balcony

We left for Honolulu around 11am on Monday, July 21st.  The plane ride was longer than any I have ever taken before - right at 8 hours.  It was a direct flight so we were in the same place the entire time.  The flight, surprisingly, did not seem as long as it sounds!  I read a great deal of the newest book by Francine Rivers - Bridge to Haven, watched TV, listened to music, and actually was able to sleep a little.  We arrived in Honolulu around 2:00 Hawaii time which would have been 7pm Texas time.  By the time we got to the hotel and settled, we were quite hungry so we ate at the little restaurant downstairs in our hotel.  The view from our hotel balcony lanai was amazing!!!  We had a partial ocean/Diamond Head view.  It was spectacular.

After dinner, I went down to the beach and stuck my feet in.  The water was so warm and I couldn't wait to get in!!

Day 2 - This day started ridiculously early!  We got up at 4am in order to catch our tour bus at 6:15.  We had to walk to Starbucks for breakfast and then walk to where our bus picked us up.  First stop was Pearl Harbor.  

It was a great tribute and I learned so much that I did not know.  I am not a huge history person and I didn't think I would be real interested in this part of the trip but it was really neat and moving to think about it as it happened.

We could have actually spent a little more time there, we both agreed.

Then the bus was off to the Dole Plantation. 

Dole pineapple whip!  The best stuff!!!

 We were only there for 20 minutes.  It was long enough to eat some pineapple whip with fresh pineapple, Brice tried some tea sweetened with pineapple juice, we took some pictures and it was time to go. 
Outside the maze
Really, I would have liked to ride the train and maybe try the maze but it was okay too.  Then it was off to the Polynesian Cultural Center where we would spend the rest of our day.  

At the Polynesian Cultural Center

Beautiful views at the PCC

The Samoan was AWESOME!

We ate lunch first and then had the rest of the time - about 3 hours to explore the center.  It was a lot of fun and we got to see a lot of neat shows.  Then the bus went around the North Shore.  We saw lots of beaches and it rained most of the day.  We got back home around 6:30 and went to eat a burger for dinner.  We were exhausted and I think I fell asleep sitting straight up.

Day 3 - We were able to sleep a little later this day.  We headed out for Starbucks and our bus at about 6:30.  Today we went to Kualoa Ranch.  

We went on a 1-hour horseback ride and a 1-hour bus tour of movie sites.  The horseback ride was a lot of fun and the bus tour was okay.  

My horse - Frodo

The ranch was beautiful!  We had a lot of fun just walking around and looking at everything.  We ate lunch there and left around 1:00. 

When we got home, we showered and made reservations for a really nice restaurant not far from the hotel.  We were somewhat limited on what we could do because we did not rent a car in Oahu.  We had the best dinner.  It was romantic and the food was delicious!  I think I fell asleep before my head hit the pillow.

Day 4 - Submarine tour and travel to Kauai.  We got to leave a little later this morning and we ate breakfast at the other restaurant in our hotel.  It was a neat atmosphere...outside overlooking the ocean.  After breakfast, we headed to the bus stop and headed to the submarine port. 

It was behind a Hilton hotel and we both decided that when we go back, that is the hotel we will stay in!  It was secluded but nice with a private beach and marina and was within closer walking distance to things.  Anyway, we had to take a boat waaaaaaaayyyyy out into the middle of the ocean to board the submarine.  I got a little queasy in the whole process but felt okay once we were actually under the water.  It was neat.

We saw lots of fish, large fish and some SEA TURTLES!!!!  I LOVE sea turtles!!!!  But none of them told me how long they live! ;)  After the submarine ride, we headed back to our hotel to take the ride to the airport.  Took the 30 minute airplane trip to Kauai.....BEAUTIFUL Kauai!!  We ate dinner at Kalapaki Joe's and it was so good.  I just had fish tacos but they were yummy!  We walked on the beach for a little while and saw a monk seal sleeping on a sand bar!!!  SO COOL!!!

Day 5 - This was luau day!!!!  We spent the morning at the beach and then after that, we went for a car adventure to the Waimea Canyon.  

Waimea Canyon
It was breathtakingly beautiful but again...I got sick from all of the twists and turns on the road around the mountain.  Geez.  I am turning into a weenie!  :)  We went back home and got ready for the luau.  I was most excited about this!!!!  We had a wonderful time at the luau.  The food was good and the story was entertaining.  I just loved the entire evening!

Day 6 - Today we had to be at the airport at 11am for our aerial tour of the Na'Pali Coast.  I took some off brand Dramamine that is not supposed to make you drowsy.  The airplane ride was so neat until....I got so sick to my stomach I could barely breathe!  They had ginger chews in an ice chest for us and I ate them like candy.  I took deep breaths and about 3/4 of the way through, I could not wait for it to end!  It was some beautiful sites though.  Amazingly beautiful!  

This is Tunnels Beach.  This is where Bethany Hamilton was attacked by the Tiger Shark and where the movie Soul Surfer was filmed

After the airplane tour, we took a drive around to the north shore to see some waterfalls and a lighthouse. 

I slept almost the entire trip.  Not only did the off-brand NOT work, it made me sleepy!!!!  That evening, I pulled myself together long enough to go to an Italian restaurant that was right next door to our hotel.  It was kind of fancy and was okay.  Not awesome but it was okay.

My favorite picture from the entire trip

Day 7 - This was our last full day on the islands and I was getting a little sad but still wanted to make the best of the time we had left.  The only thing on our agenda today was the sunset catamaran dinner cruise so we went to the beach in the morning.  I love love love the Kauai beaches!  I have never been able to stand shoulder deep in water and see the bottom (except for a swimming pool).  It was just beautiful!  I think that I must have said at least 100 times, "It's just so pretty."  We had to be at Port Allen at 2pm for our dinner cruise.  When we got there, I decided I probably needed Dramamine after the episode from the day before.  I quickly bought some actual Dramamine from the marina store and took two.  I was not nauseated once the entire boat ride!!!  The catamaran was probably my favorite thing aside from the luau and just going to the beach.  It was about 5 hours long and it was beautiful.  We saw dolphins and SEA TURTLES!!!  We saw the entire Na'Pali Coast up close.  It was stunning!  I just loved every minute of it!  

From the catamaran!!


The mountains were called Cathedrals and that beach is where Johnny Depp walked in Pirates of the Caribbean

Beautiful sunset!!  

Day 8 - This was going home day!!  I was ready to see my babies but sad to leave such a beautiful place!  We started the day at the beach and all I wanted all week long was to see a sea turtle, up close and personal.  Brice had come back up to the shore and said we needed to go.  I asked if we could stay just another 10 minutes and he said okay.  About 2 minutes later I heard a little boy tell his mom that there was a turtle in the water.  I jumped up with camera and walked out.  It was almost on the shore!!!  I was so excited!!!!!!  It was huge and I loved every second of it!!!!!  Have I mentioned that I love sea turtles!?  It was the perfect ending to our magical vacation!  We went back, finished packing up and headed to the airport to go to Honolulu and then on home.  

We left Honolulu around 4:45pm and then got to DFW around 5:30 CST.  That was around 1230 midnight Hawaii Standard Time.  :)  We got a cab and went home.  We visited with Brice's dad who was up and then I went in and woke my babies up around 7:00.  We visited and loved on them and Brice's mom took them to daycare.  They left back home for Little Rock around 11:30 or so and we crashed...until around 3:30-4:00.  I could have slept longer but it was already throwing my schedule off.  

What an amazing vacation!!!!  I am blessed by a wonderful husband who spoils me and gives me the desires of my heart.  I don't deserve him.  I will never forget this week and I am so thankful that I didn't have to worry about my kiddos while we were gone.  Brice's parents took wonderful care of them.

Hannah Happenings

I love this girl!  I mean, really.  She makes me crazy and makes me laugh all at the same time!  I often joke that if she would have been born first, she would have been an only child.  The sad thing is that I am not sure I am joking! ;)  Seriously, our lives would not be complete without her and she fits into our family just perfectly.

Hannah is now 2 years and 7 months old.  She is extremely verbal!!!  Like she can carry on a full-blown conversation with anyone and you can almost understand everything that she is saying!  She is very active and runs away from me all of the time.  We are working on it.  She is into everything.  You give her about 15 minutes of freedom and she is destroying something!!!  Maybe she will be an engineer when she grows up!  LOL!

She knows her ABCs and she can count to 10, maybe higher, not sure.  She displays dominance in her left hand about 90% of the time.  She loves to sing but gets shy when asked to show other people!  She loves going to church and loves playing with her sisters.  She really will be the life of the party when she is older.  Oh, and she LOVES the iPad!!!!!

She still gets up usually at least one time a night.  We rock, she goes back to sleep!  This has gotten so much better than it used to be when she would wake up MULTIPLE times in the night and just stay up.  Thank you lavender essential oils!!!!!

Hannah loves the water and she loves french fries!  She does not like to eat really...she could take it or leave it but when she is hungry, she wants to eat what SHE wants to eat.  She is very strong-willed.  I thought that Rachel was my strong-willed child but she has NOTHING on this one!!!!

She is very kind-hearted.  She does not like for her sisters to cry or get in trouble.  If someone is crying, she will run to them and ask what is wrong and give hugs and kisses.  She wants everyone to be happy like her.

Hannah is happy most of the time.  She smiles so big you can't see her squinty little eyes.  She loves life.  That's just the bottom line!!!  She's full of life and just takes every opportunity to enjoy it! :)  She loves calling everyone ______ Grace.  She will run around calling me Mommy Grace!!!!  I love it!

I honestly cannot imagine our lives without this little girl!  She makes us laugh, has made me cry on occasion, and she keeps us on our toes!!!  I pray that she grows up to love Jesus as much as she loves life.  

Hannah Grace, we love you!!

The Day I Became a Christian

I love blogging.  Now that I am not working as much you would think that I would have more time to blog more regularly but it just isn't on my "list."  What am I talking about?  I don't make lists!!  Hmm...maybe I should.  That might help.  I digress....where was I? helps me to keep track of our ever so fast life.  It helps me to feel like I am processing different thoughts and feelings.  I am a processor.  And my hope is that my blogging will also benefit others that read it.  Maybe you can relate to where I am in life somehow or you have dealt with some of the same things that I have.  My biggest hope is that it points others to Christ and if any of my readers are not Christ followers that they know what that means and how to do that.  

Today, in this post, I am going to share a part of my testimony....the road that lead me to Christ, how easy it was to trust in Him, and how you, too can do that if you haven't already.

I grew up in a home in the DFW area that was not the best place for a child to be.  Oh, don't get me wrong, I was happy for the most part and it wasn't always bad.  It was a home filled with lots of love from my Granny and Papa and my mom and dad when they weren't doing drugs.  I am sure they loved me all of the time, but when you are under the influence of drugs, it is really hard to show a child the appropriate kind of love.  I grew up with cousins and aunts and uncles.  I don't want you to think that everything about my childhood was horrible but there was a large part of it that was.  Like I said, there were drugs, I witnessed many episodes of domestic violence, I lived with grandparents and aunts/uncles while my parents were trying to "figure things out."  I feared that someday I would come home from school and my mom would not be alive.  I saw things that no one should ever see, especially a little girl my age.  Yet, I didn't know any better.  I remember being scared most of the time but I remember never wanting to leave my parents' side.  God protected me all of this years for a reason.  I knew that I was being kept safe but I was not sure really who God was and that He was the One preparing me for what my life would be like later.  He had big plans for me!

My mom finally stopped doing drugs and she and I rode a Greyhound bus from Dallas to Hope, Arkansas which marked the last time that we left my dad after about 50 times of doing so before.  I was one month shy of 14, I was angry at my mom, I was bitter, and I did not want to leave my friends and my school.  I was miserable for the first several months of living there.  We moved in November 1994 and in February the following year, I was invited by a friend at school to go to her church Valentine's party.  I had the best time.  I met some wonderful people who really seemed like they cared about me even though they had just met me.  It was refreshing and confusing all at the same time.  I went with this friend several times on Wednesday nights to this small church for awhile and quit going during the summer.  Then, the following August, my life changed.

My friend asked me again to go to church with her in August.  I was to spend the day with her and her family.  We went to church that Sunday morning, then a youth rally that afternoon, church again that evening, and then a youth back to school party that night at the home of Christi and Charlie Zumwalt.  I went to church that morning and did not understand all of the statements about being saved.  I wasn't sure what I was in danger of.  :)  That afternoon at the youth rally God really started speaking to me.  There was a sweet girl that sang and gave her testimony about becoming a Christian and she sang the song "Jesus Will Still Be There."  I knew that something was missing in my life.  We went back to church that evening and I began asking questions.  At the youth rally that night, I spoke with a few friends and I asked Jesus to come live, rule and reign in my heart.  I recognized that I was a sinner and that God sent his Son, Jesus to die on the cross for those sins.  I understood that nothing I can do can separate from His love and that He will be with me forever to help me live on this earth.  I was so excited that I would live forever with Him in heaven.  Hell did not sound like a good option and before this day, that is where I was headed. I did not understand everything that night but it began my walk with Christ.  It was August 27, 1995.  

That day marks a very special day in my life.  Has it always been easy?  NO!  Have I messed up?  More than I can say.  There have been times when I wondered if I could even be a Christ follower because of the choices I have made.  God does not ask us to be perfect, He only asks us to rely on Him to show us the way to live.  He is faithful.  He protected me and I know that He lives within me. God's grace is sufficient and He forgives.  It does not matter what you have done or where you have been, Christ can save you and Christ WILL forgive you!!!  He wants to.  If you think it's too bad, believe me, it's not.  Satan is good at telling us lies.  

I walked the aisle at church the next week and was baptized showing others that I knew that Christ loves me and died for my sins on September 10, 1995.  

If you have questions about this, please PLEASE let me know.  I would love to talk with you!!

Lord, Change My Attitude

A few months back, our women's ministry at church did a Bible study called Lord, Change My Attitude by James MacDonald.  Let me just say, it was incredibly convicting!  Even the weeks and subjects that I didn't think would be a huge issue for me proved to be where God worked the most.  I wanted to blog about it each week but my life is just a little crazy and I didn't get a chance to do that. Then, I started a few weeks ago, going through each week to share what God was showing me through those weeks and realized that it was going to be incredibly long and I would probably lose all two most of you.  So, let me just give you a brief overview and encourage you to do this study.  I cannot say that it was fun but I will do the dramatic and say that it was life changing!

It was a 10-week study with the following subjects.

Weeks 1 & 2 - Replacing a Complaining Attitude With An Attitude of Thankfulness

Weeks 3 & 4 - Replacing a Covetousness Attitude With An Attitude of Contentment

Weeks 5 & 6 - Replacing a Critical Attitude With An Attitude of Love

Weeks 7 & 8 - Replacing a Doubting Attitude With An Attitude of Faith

Weeks 9 & 10 - Replacing a Rebellious Attitude With An Attitude of Submission

See...I told you it wasn't necessarily fun but definitely good.  Just the outline of the chapters is enough to scare most people away.  :)

Some things that stood out to me in those 10 weeks.....

I complain....a lot.  I am truly truly working on this.  I am trying to teach my children that God does not like complaining and I certainly don't like to hear them complain.  One of the things I thought about most of all was when I spend all day long cleaning the house and someone comes home and talks about what I didn't do.  How frustrating is that?  I wonder how God must feel when He has given me so much and I still continue to complain about every little petty thing and the big things too!!!  It isn't becoming and it will ruin a testimony.

Complaining hurts yourself, hurts God, and hurts the people around you.  YOUR GRIPING POISONS THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU.  

Complaining turns us away from all of the good things that God has done.

I have noticed when I start to complain and I pray....immediately.  Not every time but I am a work in progress.

Contentment...oh boy.  Honestly, I am not sure if this week or the week on a critical attitude hit me the hardest but this was definitely a hard week for me.  My husband and I talk all the time about why I am not happy.  I mean, I am happy sometimes but for the most part I just feel like something is missing.  The most profound thought from this week:  He is enough.  Things, people, whatever CANNOT make me happy.  Happiness and joy are not the same thing and joy comes from the Lord.  Joy is within and when I realize that God wants what is best for me I will have that joy.  When my desires line up with God's desires for me.  Before I can have that oneness and be in tune with Christ, I must listen to Him and respond to His call and spend more time with him.  I am working on that too.  Again, it is a process.

I recently saw the movie Mom's Night Out.  It was GREAT!!  Super funny but more importantly, it had some very serious life lessons for busy moms with small children who just don't feel quite adequate in the world that feel like it is spinning out of control.  Allyson, the main character is a blogger and blogged at the end of the movie:

My life needs to change in order for me to be happy: FALSE.  I MUST change in order for me to be happy.  

God has given me exactly what I need to be the mother to my children because He has given them to me.  

I am a failure:  FALSE.  I am a mess but I am His mess.  I am a work in progress and

At one point, she said, "When I was a little girl, I wanted this.  I wanted a loving husband and beautiful kids.  Why am I not happy?"  Later in the movie she talked about not being enough and a very wise, yet unsuspecting character asked her, "For who?"  She talked about all of the people that she was not good enough for and he simply told her that the only person that she was measuring up to was herself.  He told her to quit being so hard on herself.  

DING DING!!!!  It just spoke SO much to me.  God is good and gives us JUST what we need why do we search for so much more?  

I do have a critical attitude.  I am sure that most of that stems from being a perfectionist.  I notice things...spelling errors, grammatical errors.  Am I perfect?  ABSOLUTELY not!!!!  Do I like it when people point out my faults.  Well, no.  I have caught myself several times since this study refraining from correcting someone when they made silly mistakes if they didn't matter.  One of the biggest issues with being critical is that it harbors negativity.  I am trying and praying and on my knees begging almost for Christ to transform me from the person that everyone thinks I am into the person that I really am - a loving, giving, caring person that just wants to be kind and gentle.  I see progress but it is slow and I get frustrated with the process.  :)  One step at a time.

One of the common themes in the Bible study from beginning to end was that God is faithful when we are not.  That has been such a profound statement for me in the past few days, months, and years that I can hardly stand it!!!  I mean, I can say it over and over and over and I believe it but do I TRULY believe it?  If I am not living it out with a right attitude, I think it is hard to display a true belief in that statement.  

I think the last week was probably the week that I felt like I could breathe a little.  I am a rule-follower.  I don't find myself to be very rebellious. At least I didn't, until I read this Bible study.  :/  I do have some "trouble areas" here but not nearly as much as the other "wilderness areas" that MacDonald talks about.  Believe me, I don't feel like I have this subject matter mastered by any stretch of the imagination!  Anytime I get an attitude of not wanting to follow a leader or getting a negative attitude about something that someone told me to do, that qualifies.  The biggest thing from this week was when we talked about God placing leaders and authority figures in place and how if we choose not to honor them, we are choosing not to honor God.  Woah!  Think about that on a political level, employment level, and spiritual leader level.  Mmmm hmmmm.....  yikes.

I have such a long way to go before I have my attitude "in check" and if I ever feel like I am "there" that is the time I will be in trouble.  Like I said, this is a process and we may make progress then have set backs.  The most important thing to remember is that God is there with us.  He is faithful and He never leaves us.  Attitude is such a huge part of who we are.  It can be a "deal breaker" in relationships, marriages, friendships, job environments, churches, etc.  It's a big deal and God thinks so too....anytime you wonder just read about the Israelites and what God did with their bad attitudes!!!

Update on What I Am Doing

I have had several questions regarding nursing school and work and what my plans are for the future so I decided to update everyone.

As most of you know, I have been taking classes for the past year in pursuit of going back to school for my bachelor's of science in nursing.  My original thought was that I would try for an accelerated program and do it as quickly as possible in order to minimize my time away from my family.  The only two programs that do that in this area are Baylor School of Nursing (Dallas extension) and Texas Christian University.  

Last semester I took Anatomy and Physiology I and Chemistry (YUK).  I got an A in both classes!  WOO HOO!  This semester I am taking Anatomy and Physiology II and Microbiology.  I am doing well in both of these classes as well.  :)  For Baylor I still need two semesters of a foreign language and as I started looking, I have met all of the requirements for prerequisites for admission to TCU.  In January, I discovered that I could go ahead and apply for TCU.  On the 20th of January, I decided to apply for a February 1st application deadline!  LOL!  I took the HESI (required prior to application) and did not crack a book prior to taking it....I had NO IDEA what would even be on it! I met the deadline, passed the HESI, and found out on February 18th, that I was accepted to the TCU Accelerated BSN program to start in May!!!  I was SOOOO excited!!!!  And then, suddenly, I was scared, worried, unsure, many emotions.

After many many weeks and hours of praying and talking with Brice about this, I have decided that right now I will not be going to nursing school.  Not to the TCU accelerated program.  Part of me is a little sad about this but majority of me knows that God was totally all about this decision.  I am at peace with this decision.  The program would be incredible time consuming for me and I would be asking SO MUCH of my family.  My children are so small and I feel so selfish asking them to put everything aside for me to fulfill something that I don't have to do right now.  I have a career that I love.  I am a social worker.  I get to change people's lives.  I already have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree.  I don't have to ask my family to sacrifice so much.

This does not mean that I will not become a nurse....some day.  My kids will not be little forever.  Right now, I am working back at Arlington Memorial Hospital....yes, where I was before.  I love that hospital.  I love the people I work with and for.  I am working PRN which is as basically when I can and want to and it is working well so far.  I may work a more regular hours in the future but for now, this works. :)

God is good.  And He is faithful.  I am so excited about what God has in store for me and my family. Knowing that He has my best interest at heart and being patient enough to have faith to wait on Him is hard but so worth it.

Spring Break 2014!

This past week was spring break.  I am going to recap all week in one post.

Day 1 & 2 ~ These days were exciting for me because I was able to start a new journey (again) with Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital.  As part of the hiring and starting to work process, I had to attend hospital orientation on these two days.  After being there previously (with a 1 year break) for nearly 5 years, this was just a big review for me.  I love this hospital!  It truly is one of the best places I have ever worked.  I am so glad I was given the opportunity to come back with my people!  I work my first shift on the 25th!!

Day 3 ~ This was Lauren's actual birthday!  We took Rachel and Hannah to "school" and then we had a day for just the two of us.  We went to Rainforest Cafe at the Grapevine Mills Mall.
That is her yearly birthday lunch pick.  It was CRAZY crowded because it was spring break and after waiting for 40 minutes, I realized that I am a Landry's Club Member and we could have sat down immediately!  Ha!  O'well, we had fun shopping while we waited.  We ate lunch and then we headed to the carousel.  Mommy stopped in the Ann Taylor Loft outlet and bought some clothes.  **Side note** I found out that you shouldn't take your 5 year old shopping with you because she will go home and tell Daddy that Mommy bought a bunch of clothes! :)  Anyway, Lauren rode the carousel and then we headed back home.
We came home and rested for a little while and then it was time to go get the sisters.  Lauren picked Chapps for her birthday dinner because she said it was Daddy's favorite place.  :)

Day 4 ~  This day I kept Lauren and Rachel home from school so that I could spend some time with them.  In all of my planning for the week, I completely forgot that I had Bible study on Thursday morning.  We had planned a playdate with Logan and Lucas that afternoon so Kaydi volunteered to keep the the girls while I went to Bible study.  They played and had a great time.  They miss their friends. When I was finished, we all went to Pump It Up for some jumping fun!  It was crowded...just like every other place in the metroplex for kids this week.  Kaydi and I got to visit and it was a breath of fresh answer to prayers.  God is good and is the Author of forgiveness, healing, and reconciliation.  We went home and rested and then picked up Hannah.  Brice had to work late so I took the girls to IHOP to eat dinner.  They wanted breakfast and I didn't want to cook.  It was a good day.

Day 5 ~ Daddy stayed home today!!  He was planning to just stay home 1/2 the day but ended up staying all day.  The girls (all 3) loved it!!  In the morning, we went to the donut shop (Hannah's favorite place) and took our donuts to the park and ate them.  Then we went to a different park and played.  We were the only ones there for about an hour.  We played and then went home.  For lunch, we got Chick Fil A.  Daddy worked a little while on his computer, and all of the girls took naps.  :)  Then we met Justin and Tonya at Chuck E. Cheese for dinner and play!! was super crowded!  SHOCKER! :)

Saturday wasn't what I would consider part of spring break but it was Lauren's birthday party.  I will post about the party later.  We had a great week and going back to school is going to be hard this next week....for everyone.
