where have I been?

where have I been?
well, a little bit of everywhere!
I tell you what, being a full time mom, wife, and having a full time job is H.A.R.D.!
The funny thing is that I've done this before and I was a full time student included in that, but for some reason this go around is much MUCH more difficult!  Maybe it's because there's 2 kids this time?  

Whatever the reason, life is busy and I'm feeling stretched to the max... but it's ok cause I'm on this "the glass is half full" kick lately and I'm just loving life and counting my blessings!

So school is out already, this is actually their 4th week out, crazy how fast it's going! We've done the zoo, movies, LOTS of baseball, playing with friends, swimming.... man, what's left to be done?  Well, another zoo next week, some water parks and an amusement park.... ummm, I might need to pick up an extra shift or two!

I've got great pics to share with everyone, just need to find a moment to sit down and upload them... as I type I'm baking cookies... I'm such a multi-tasker!  We got new neighbors in this weekend who happen to have 2 boys, and it looks like they are the same ages as my boys so we are SUPER excited! Gotta make them a little welcome basket of cookies!

Oh and when I say pics... Sage and I went to an 80's themed birthday party last weekend, oh man, killer pictures!  I think it took me two showers to get all of the hairspray out! lol

Another big thing for me lately is the little bit of soul searching I'm doing.  There comes a point in life where you feel like you can't count on anyone or anything to always be there, something you can always count on.  I've come to that point and instead of getting down about it and letting that take over I'm looking towards higher things.  I'm trying to grasp onto those friends that I know are sincere, who love my family for who we are and what we stand for.  I'm searching deeper into my faith and trying to use that as my outlet... so far I'm pleased with how things are going and how much higher my spirits are.  Life is good people! :)

Like I said, photos are to come....
in the mean time I hope you all are enjoying the weekly recipes! It's about all I have time to keep up with lately!  Enjoy this weeks chocolate chocolate cookies.... oh heaven! 

oh and p.s.  I'm taking my basal body temp every morning... what can that possibly mean? Yup, exciting times to come! :)

Well it's good to see an update. Glad to hear things are good busy and you guys are enjoying the summer. I seriously need to take a day here and there and spend some time doing things with my 'not so little' kiddo.
