My New Journey

Hello McCrazy Followers!  ❤

It has been forever, I know, but I have not ever forgotten about you!

My oldest child and school do not mix.  It has been a rough couple of years…kindergarten and first grade…  It may not be as bad as I think, but I have been demanding the best he can do from him, and I am just not convinced he is giving it.  First grade is almost over, thank The Lord, and we will give it another shot in second grade!  (Or not, we may home school.  I am sure that will prompt a whole new series of blogging…lol)  So, that has been consuming a ton of my time.

The second child turned five, today.  I am not thrilled about this.  He, however, could not be more excited.  Kindergarten, here he comes! ❤

The baby is not a baby.  She turned two, last month.  *SIGH*  She’s a great big, old smarty pants…  Way too big for her pants.

We are planning a fantastic big trip to Texas, to visit a friend, in July.  We have been planning a while, but my, more than fabulous, husband reserved our camping spots this morning, so things are getting real!  😉

And now here is the BIG news!  When we get back from Texas, it should be just about time for me to “onboard” with LULAROE!!  I am much, much more than excited about this.  I have never been a big shopper, but Lularoe has given me a shopping happiness that I have never known.  PLUS, the company is fabulous.  They rely a lot on faith and spend a LOT of time talking about how we can bless others with our businesses.  Most of the clothing is made in the USA, but the stuff that is not is made in factories with great working conditions, creating jobs not just for the good ol’ US of A, but for others around the world who may not have a good job, otherwise=blessing others.

A big topic is our WHY.  I have been working a lot on my why.  I have MANY why’s…haha.

One why is….my family, of course.  🙂  I got a part time Care Manager job last year.  It is the first job I’ve had since I had my oldest in 2009.

I love being at home with my babies.  I love taking them to school, and being here when they get home, but we are now three deep and they become busy critters as they grow.  My job is fantastic and it pays well, but to be able to bring in more income for my family, I would have to be out of the house more.  I am out one day, as of now, and a few hours here and there, but the thought of even one more full day seems agonizing.  I know a lot mom’s work 5 days a week, and I applaud them.  I had planned to, but now, it’s just not in my cards…lol.

Anywho…my WHY…  I want to be able to provide my family with extra income and not lose baby time.  The kids are even excited…  My six year old boy asked me the other day when I was going to get all of my clothes…lol.

And who doesn’t want to play dress up, with these fabulous clothes, every day?!?  (This coming from the chick who wasn’t a girl until she was like 15…lol)

Another why is because I am TOTALLY excited to be the one who makes someone’s day.  I want to open my boxes of goodies, online, so everyone can be excited with me.  I want to throw the random chick at the hospital some leggings when she tells her friend she has GOT to get some as I walk by.  I’ve always enjoyed giving, and to me, this is like a year round Christmas!  The boxes of surprises come to me, and I get to share them with the world!  Well, part of it.  😉

Some of the styles:

 

The leggings are the most fantastic things on the planet.  I was not really a leggings type of chick prior to these.  Now, I wear them, almost, everyday…the other days I ‘ wearing a Lularoe skirt dress.  😉  They have kids, and tween, leggings, as well.  Mommy and me sets.  My boys LOVE them.

The polka dot piece is a Cassie skirt.  It can be worn as a skirt, top, or scarf.

The grey and black striped piece is an Irma tunic. ❤

The beach picture is a Maxi Skirt.  It can also be a dress…and many, many more things.  To see other styles, or other ways to wear all the styles, join my Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and/or Perisope.  🙂

In the mean time, I would LOVE to hear about what you have been up to! ❤

From Out of this World

Voyage Towards Up

There has been a topic floating around in my world for a couple weeks, now.  It has come in many forms, but always points back to the same issue.

First, there was a sermon about hurtful words.  While, yes, I do believe it is important to remind people we must watch what we say, I believe it is equally important to remind people the words that are used against them, to hurt them, are just that: words.  The saying “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt” is a very true statement.  They only hurt if we LET them hurt.  They will sting when they are thrown, but if our eyes and mind are fixed on God, we realize, quickly, that the only opinion of us that matters is that of God.  We pray for the hurt sower, and move on with our happy days.

In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”

To Question or Not to Question…That Is the Question

Voyage Towards Up

Growing up I was, always, taught not to question God.  I was to follow what He says, blindly, and do what I was told.  God has our plan, and we must trust in Him.

Ok, will do.

I have spent my life trying to do that, and I feel that is one of the mail reasons I dealt so well with my mothers death.  I was 10 when she died.  It was God’s plan, and who was I to question it?  My father said it best (and, yes, I later thanked him) when he told me that my mothers time on Earth was over and that she would now go to work in the Kingdom of Heaven for God.  Well, Ok.  Who can argue with that?

Almost 20 years later I began REALLY going to church, again, after spending some time away.  I never left God, I just didn’t spend…

Life With Three

Life is getting exciting around here!  Little Miss Evie Bell is three months old now.  Her bothers adore her, as well as, her mommy and Daddy.  She was the CUTEST, HAPPIEST, little thing.  So very content and well tempered.  

sister

Until now!

sister roll

She has begun to roll!!  She rolls on her belly and gets ANGRY…silly girl.  Roll back over, I think.  Maybe I will, maybe I won’t, she thinks…  During the day this is fine, I suppose.  It’s the nights that are killing me.  She has gone from being the best little sleeper, to being a cranky little sleeper.  Why, you may ask??  

Because the little darling rolls on her belly, against the crib side, and can’t get back!!!

sister tummy

Mommy to the rescue!!  (Or Brothers during the day)

This would be all fine and dandy if only I were ready.  She’s my last little baby, and she is, definitely, growing TOO fast!  Today, she rolled, like a log, in the living room…at least that’s progression to being more independent, as opposed to, “MOMMY HELP ME!!  I’m STUCK!”

***McCrazy Daily Lesson:  Hold them close and cherish every moment, because (excuse me while I break out into song) they wont be like this for loooooong….***

 

Random Summer 2014 130

Week Two of The Fix

Fit X's 5

We have begun week two, and I have to say that the diet and workout plan is getting surprisingly comfy.  We have looked up new recipes and tried new foods.  My husband is down SEVEN POUNDS!  I did not take measurements that way I should have, and you should, but I can tell things are definitely less jiggly!  I feel better day to day, and have less aches and pains.

I believe the #21dayfix is a great starting point for anyone who A) Just had a baby and is looking to get going again, B) is trying to eat better and isn’t sure where to start, or C) is trying to get into the workout scene.

It’s enough exercise to get results, but not too much to be intimidating.  If there’s an exercise you can’t complete, modify!  Like Autumn says…Just keep moving for the entire 30 minutes!!

The diet is…
