About Me

I was born and raised in Midland TX and couldn't wait to get out. After getting a taste of the big city life I ended up back in my home town. I married my wonderful husband Eric in March of 2006 and come September 11th our little Angel Cole was born. Life changed in an instant and I couldn't imagine life with out my boys. Eric is the most amazing father, my rock and ever quiet support and Cole is the joy of my life.I never knew that one person could bring so much unconditional love. They make me who I am today and because of that I am forever grateful

It's Official

Well its official I am a bona fide boy “boy mom”. We found out Monday we are having another baby boy!! While I knew the minute I found out I was pregnant with Cole that I wanted a boy, this time I longed for pink and pony tails. While God didn’t answer this pray I know he had my best interest at heart as most will say our house isn’t big enough for two princesses. The minute they confirmed this precious gift from God was a boy I was overwhelmed with joy in knowing I would have two precious sticky sweat boys running around our house. I know you think I am crazy but I love that smell. I love when I walk through the door seeing Cole all dressed in his t-ball uniform eye black and all with the excited look in eyes jumping up and down asking me if I am ready to go watch him play t-ball. I love that no matter what he will always come to me when he is upset or has a boo boo. I love the smell of his hair when he comes in after playing catch in the backyard with daddy. I love watching him get excited when he sees a bug walking across the floor or looking up and seeing him in his batman costume and playing with his light saber. I think about all these things and realize that I am meant to be a “boy mom”. That is just the way it’s meant to be. I can’t wait to see these to precious boys grow up together as I know they will be best buddies. But my biggest hope is they will rise up to be gentlemen and men after God’s own heart.

It has been a very long time since I have posted something so I thought I should update you all all little considering its been since August of last year that I posted something. My Cole man turned 4 and while I miss so much him being a baby. This age is so much fun! He is just his own little person with his own thoughts. He started playing T-Ball this year and had his first game last night!! I have never seen him so excited! Daddy of course is coaching and made sure he was all decked out for his first game-eye black and all.

We finally had our prayers answered and I look back and know exactly what God's perfect plan was for us. I am pregnant!! We will be having another September baby and the birthday will be pretty close to Coles. We are so overwhelmed with joy! Cole is so excited!! We will find out within the next month what this precious joy is going to be and I can't wait!!

He wants to WOW us!

It amazes me how God continues to speak to me. I was having a conversation with my friend Sommer the other day about Eric and my difficulty with getting pregnant. We are now to the point of an appointment with a Fertility specialist and I was talking with her how lately it seems like everyone around is having trouble with getting pregnant or having troubled pregnancies when normally everytime you turn around you are wondering "what's in the water" because some has come up pregnant. With this going on it always tweaks my interest as to what HIS plan is for me and for those friends of mine who have had problems. While the answer may not be in plain site as we would like it to be I am reminded from an I received today that his plan is always for our good even though at the moment it may not seem like it. He is doing it for our good and at the right moment so we can be blown away by Him.

Did you know that God can use a single moment to transform your life for the better? God is always working, even when we have no idea what He's doing. He loves to bless us with His amazing, awe-inspiring goodness, even when we least expect it or when things don't seem to be going the right way. Romans 8:28 is a popular verse but never gets old. To me, it's one of the most encouraging verses in the entire Bible. "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them" (NLT). I love the word "everything" in this verse. We tend to think of bad things and difficult seasons, but "everything" includes more. It includes the good things as well as the things that we are indifferent about. God takes all of those things and works them out for our good. He wants you to be the kind of person who thinks about His promises all the time, who believes the best, and who keeps hoping when others just give up. If you live this way, I believe you'll be amazed at how God works in your life. You'll experience His favor in what I call a "God-ordained moment." A God-ordained moment is an incredible, supernatural event that God's been setting up, working behind the scenes so that you can experience His goodness at just the right time. These God-ordained moments don't come on our schedule, but when they come, all we can say is: "Wow!"

Have a Little Faith

It seems that lately I am surrounded by people or even myself that have something we are praying for and it's just not being answered in the time that we would like. As I opened up to read my daily devotional I was reminded that our prayers will be answered on HIS time and to have faith in him. I thought I would share the devotional with you all along with the prayer for you and myself. Have Faith he is listening and HE craves your need for HIM.

In the natural realm, we exchange money for the things we want and need. But in the spiritual realm, faith is what we exchange. The Bible tells us that when we pray, if we have faith, we will receive what we pray for.
Faith is heaven's currency. Faith moves mountains. Faith opens supernatural doors. Faith pleases God. What is faith? It is simply believing God and His Word. It's believing in His goodness and knowing that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek after Him. Faith is believing that the promises of God are true. It's obeying His Word. Where does faith come from? Everyone is given a measure of faith. Romans tell us that faith grows by hearing the Word of God. The more you hear the Word of God, the more real it becomes in your life and the easier it is to believe His promises.
It doesn't matter how much faith you have today, begin investing your faith by choosing to obey God's Word. As you hear and obey the Word, you will be empowered by faith, and you will move forward to receive every good gift He has in store for you!

Heavenly Father, thank You for the power of Your Word at work in my life. I submit myself to You today and ask that the seeds of faith in my heart grow strong. I open my heart to You and ask You to remove any doubt or unbelief so that I can serve You with my whole heart all the days of my life. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

And whatever you ask for in prayer, having faith and believing, you will receive"(Matthew 21:22, AMP)

30, Flirth and Fabulous!!

This past weekend my bestie Becky or as her finance and I like to call her "Betsty" turned the big 30 so we headed to Ruidoso to celebrate this momentus occasion! We stayed in amazing cabin with an amazing view and had enjoyed the wildlife. This deer loved us and loved to come up to our cabin for a little bread! I am pretty sure I saw the biggest elk I have ever seen. The only downfall is that my hubby was working so he couldn't go. We bowled it up and by the way I am pretty sure I was the worst bowler out out of the whole bunch but I did make up for my bowling loss when we headed to the casino. I played a little craps and walked away with a little money. Becky got lots of great presents!!! It was a wonderful weekend!! Makes me what to turn 30 all over again!!
