Good Morning! Last night we worked out again. As my blog title says...I rowed again! Tim did it with me and we (or maybe just me) pretended we were in the Olympics! It's my new favorite thing to do at the gym! I am going to work really really hard today at work since I will be off the rest of the week! I can't wait till 5:00 p.m.!!! I don't have much to say this morning. I will brag on my sweet hubby for a second. I just love him to pieces! He is my best friend in the world and I just have fun with him every single day. If you read this today....I LOVE YOU! I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Oh... I don't know if I will get to blog during my vacation. If not, try to make it without reading my blogs everyday. I know it will tough. But I will be back soon! :) Peace out!

Hello to all! Last night we were making breakfast for dinner! We were making waffles in our waffle iron that we never use. We were also making sausage and eggs. Well, I guess our sausage pan got a little too hot and our smoke detectors started going off!! haha! First the one in our dining room went off numerous times. Then the one in the hall started going off too! We had the back door open and the kitchen window open. Maddie started freaking out and spinning in circles chasing her tail. Poor thing. This morning when I got up the house still smelled of sausage! We also went to the gym last night. Tim put me through some basketball drills. :) He loves to work with me on things like that! I also did the rowing machine for 1,000 meters. Just like on the Olympics! Then I did the EFX for 30 min. It was a fun evening. I am looking forward to Thursday. Our mini vacation starts then! Can't wait!!! Everyone have a fantastic day. And remember to take caution while cooking sausage! Love to all.

Hola Everyone! Today I am just working away. I am having a good day so far. Not much to report here. I am trying to drink a lot of water today.....so I guess that's good. The Redeem Team USA rocks my face off! They are undefeated and will win the gold! Oh yeah! I have a busy weekend planned....get to spend lots of time with my sis-in-law....shout out! Which I love. We are going to see Little Women the Musical. I am pretty excited. The movie is wonderful and makes me cry, so we will see about the musical. I will let you know how it goes. I am really looking forward to fall. I can't wait to pull out all of my fall decor! It makes me REALLY HAPPY!!! Ahhh! So excited! :) I hope everyone has a fun weekend. I probably won't blog tomorrow....maybe...but maybe not. Love everyone. Bye!

I have had a wonderful past few days. I am so thankful that I got to spend some time with the Uruguay girls. It was just precious times I will never forget. Last night I stayed up till 3am talking, laughing and dancing to latin music! It was so fun. The pic is of the girls. We are drinking mate...it is kinda like tea. It is very strong. It is a huge part of the culture there. Pray for the girls...2 of them will be in college in Arkansas and the youngest will go back to Uruguay without her sisters, with her parents. A lot of changes are going on for them. I love them all dearly. This evening we had a choir event. It was fun. We won the volleyball match and the ladderball match!!! oh yeah! But now I am ready for bed! Tomorrow we are having ribs with tim's family for his b-day. It is a tradition. :) I am just feeling thankful right now. No matter what we might go through in life...God is so good! Night Night.....I am off to bed! zzzzzzz......

Good day to you! I am quite excited for tonight. The missionaries from Uruguay will be at our church tonight! I can hardly stinkin wait!!! It will be really sad when they leave, but I am glad I get to see them for at least a little bit! I got my friend and sis-in-law Brandi (shout out....whoowhoo) to start a blog too. Check her's out...My brother is going to start one too! I must say I have the most precious, adorable and amazing nephew in the world!! Last night I got to see him for a lil bit, and I just love him to pieces! I thank God he let me be an aunt...it's awesome! I had some delicious pineapple for lunch today! I could eat an entire pineapple by myself in one sitting. My sweet hubby buys whole ones and slices it for me into cute rings. I love my husband by the way. I am in a pretty good mood today also! Feeling better! Well, gotta go get some work done. Everyone have a marvelous day! Peace out!

Good Morning Everyone! Well, I am feeling a little bit better today. Last night I went to Weight Watchers.....and....I lost 1 1/2 lbs!! whoohoo!!! I am up to 42 1/2 gone! It has taken FOREVER! And I still have more to lose. But, it is a journey and I am learning every single day. I am going to keep on truckin! Even if it takes me another year. lol! I am really looking forward to tomorrow. The Uruguay missionaries wil be at church! I can't wait!!!!! I pray that God calls us to go on another mission trip, cause I really really want to go again! If you have never gone on a mission trip before, you don't know what you are missing. It is such a neat experience telling people about Christ in a place where most of them have never heard the TRUTH! They don't have any evangelical churches. I hope everyone gets the opportunity to go someday. However, let's not forget that we can be missionaries right where we live everyday! I need to find out if my neighbor knows Christ....I have a huge mission field right in my neighborhood! Well, I guess I better get to work. Everyone have a fantastic day!

I hate Mondays! I really don't like today. I have not been feeling that well, and I really didn't want to get out of bed today. Pray for me if you think of it...I feel like I have a virus of some sort. We had an awesome day at church yesterday. In our small groups we talked about Peter. We talked about how God can still use us, even when we mess up...no matter how bad it is. All we have to do is just trust God and put our complete faith in Him, and he can use us in ways we can't even imagine. We also talked about are we living for ourselves, to please others or to please God. That's a tough one. A lot of times we say we are living for God, but our lifestyles don't back it up. The things we say, our attitudes, what we watch and listen to....After evening church we went to the store to pick up a few things for the week. I got my favorite Raisin Bran Crunch cereal! Love it! But I was so sad this morning...I didn't eat any cause I thought it might upset my stomach...ya know with the whole virus thingy! lol! But maybe I can have some tomorrow. Well, I had better get to work. I hope everyone has a good day.

Good Morning everyone! I had a fabulous evening last night! We had some good friends over last. It was a lovely time eating, watching the Olympics and playing games. I am thankful for good friends. Then something really awesome happened.....a few of the missionary kids from Uruguay stopped by our house. We had no idea they were in town. What an amazing surprize!!! We went to Uruguay on a mission trip last July. It was such a life changing experience I will never forget. I still pray for all of those people and that country. We had a fun time talking and fellowshipping. But they had to leave fairly quickly since they had a 5:00 a.m. flight this morning. But I will see them this Wednesday. :) Their dad will be speaking at our church. I am sooooo excited! This afternoon I will probably do some work around the house. I really enjoy working on my house and organizing things. Well, I better get off of here. I am headed off for youth visitation. Pray that we have good visits and that we can share the love of Christ with everyone we meet today!

Hello! I guess I am a blogger now? I don't really know what blogging is or what it is all about. But, it looks like fun! I don't know if anyone will actually want to read this.....Well, I have been obsessed with the Olympics! I don't want them to end. I have not been getting as much sleep as I should because I have been staying up super late watching every minute. I love Shawn Johnson...she won the silver. I wish she would have won gold...but Nastia was good too. I have a busy weekend planned. We are having company over tonight. Then we are having breakfast with Tim's fam tomorrow morning. Then we have youth visitation in the afternoon. I would love to go swimming after that, but I don't think it will be warm enough! How sad!!! I hope everyone (if anyone reads this) has an amazing weekend. Enjoy your weekend.
