Day 1

so cute,,,love u dear…

Day 1

So its been raining cats and dogs all day/night. Thankfully there has finally been a break in the storm but the unfortunate part is that it has turned our winter wonderland into an ice rink for the masses. My daughter doesn’t seem to mind though, she’s out there living it up – oh what I would give to be a child again. There are many things i just can’t believe I used to do. Example: my daughter runs outside with her coat wide open, no mitts just adrenaline to keep her warm and then there’s mom who layers up. Just isn’t the same as it used to be. My hubby, the poor thing – he’s stuck working in -20 temperatures for 3 weeks of every month. Its crazy and so cold. Its kind of hard on us being apart so often but when our little bundle of joy is here…

Knobby Knees


the globe-trotters

As a little girl, I would sing and sing. I can remember standing in our upstairs playroom holding the remote to my petit pink lips, belting ‘Country Roads’ in front of an audience of my teddy bears and Barbie dolls. Thinking back, I had absolutely no worries. The idea of being “self-conscious” was not one I was familiar with.

 However, between the ages of 9 and 12 all of that seemed to change; I became reserved and unsure. I couldn’t tell you why, some speculated (falsely, I might add) that my parent’s abused me or that I was bullied by my fellow fifth grade classmates. A few thought it was whatever T.V. shows I was watching or that my teacher’s and sister’s weren’t supporting me. What no one seemed to understand was that it was none of those things. In fact, it was the exact opposite of all of them.

My New Car

I Love This Car..Nice …

The Happy Here Blog

My time in Wisconsin flew by and I never felt like I was on vacation, don’t you hate that? I had a wonderful Christmas and New Years thanks to quite a bit of skype time with my husband. Unfortunately I am home sick from work for a second day with what might be the flu but now I have time to share about my new car!

My sister and I got into town on the 23rd and on the 24th, yes Christmas Eve, my dad and I headed out to start car shopping. I test drove a used and new 2012 Jetta that day but the prices weren’t right and the car just didn’t “feel right” to me. We headed back out to another car dealer the day after Christmas and I test drove a used 2011 Jetta that I really liked. It had both the heated seats and the sunroof that…

Everybody Wants to Change the World… But, Nobody Wants to Change.


Let Us Be Travelers

“You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world.”


I am on the forensics and debate team at my school. I compete mainly in acting events, but one of my events I give a speech. I was looking through my laptop, and I found my speech from last year. I have not read it in months, and I read it tonight. I thought I would share it with you all, and, hopefully, you will be inspired.

If you had the chance to change the world, what would you imagine? Some of you would think substantive: halt all wars and riots, end world poverty, find the cure for cancer. While others would think on a smaller scale: lower taxes, free health care, or maybe even change the attitude of…
