Kentucky is calling...

On Wednesday I fly out to head to Louisville, Kentucky for my MOPS convention. My co-coordinator and I are flying out together and we will get to Kentucky at 7 pm. We will be able to get settled and grab dinner and enjoy a relaxing evening before the craziness begins. Thursday we have meetings/sessions starting at 12 until 9 pm. Friday we have sessions from 9 am until 6 pm and then we have the evening free to go out to dinner and have girl time with any ladies we meet. Saturday we will had all day sessions again and then we have a reception at the end of the night for all the ladies to have fun... We fly out Sunday morning at 10 and then have a whole day of flying. Hoping we can catch a connecting flight sooner than later so we aren't waiting for 4 hours for our connecting flight. 

I am so super excited for this time to be able to go and experience all that God wants me to experience. I feel it will be a lot of knowledge and I will take great notes because I am sure I will not be able to take it all in during the conference. I am excited for this time with my co-coordinator and our time together. I feel it will be a great time for us to just have some us time and get to know each other more. I am excited for the experiences and the friends I will get to meet and the few people I know through online/email only. 

I am not ready to be away from my husband or my daughter, but I know that God is leading me here and He has some plans in my future :)

Mom, did Jesus get married?

My conversation with my daughter this past week was her asking me if Jesus ever got married.

My reply was, no honey he didn't. She then asks, why not? I tell her that he died before he was able to get married. 

Her reply stopped me in my tracks by how awesome and smart she is... 

She says, "But momma, he is alive so why can't he get married now?"

I love her so much!

MOPS has started again...

After all the stress and worrying my co-coordinator and I did, we finally made it to the first meeting of the year.

Our first meeting was this past Tuesday and I sure did feel like a chicken with my head cut off, but it went off well and we had a total of 20 new mom's visit and out of those 20 moms, about 8 or so registered for this next year. They get to try it out for 2 meetings before registering... hopefully all of them will be registered by next month!

The stresses and worrying we did was worth it. For those 20 ladies to show up and have a place to come to get that mom time and enjoy the crafts and speakers we have, it was all worth it! 

Looking forward to the rest of the year and praying it goes smoothly after we get in the hang of things!

MOPS motto is NO MOM ALONE... I highly feel that is a great motto and every mom needs a good friend in their life! Why not have more than one with MOPS!

She has my back...

The other day I spent all day shopping for our MOPS group and standing the rest of the day cleaning out the closet that we have to store all our MOPS supplies. 

At the end of the day my feet hurt so bad. The next day we went to church and then had to go grocery shopping. 

When we got home, I mentioned to C that my feet hurt so bad. Her reply without missing a beat, "Well, you should have told me and I would have pushed you in the grocery cart instead."

I love her and her big heart! Makes me proud to be her momma. 


C was always the only child until I met Abe and she gained a sister. Both the girls have mentioned that they have always wanted another sibling, but we told them it is not happening right now. 

The other day C and I were driving to the store and this is our conversation... ENJOY!

C: "Momma, I would like another sibling to have at the house. I don't really care if it comes from your belly or if we adopt one, I just want one."

Me: "Oh okay. So you don't care if we adopt?"
C: "No, mam. Can we go to the adopt store and pick one out today?"
Me: Holding back my laughter, "Baby, it doesn't work that way. It takes time to complete an adoption process."
C: "Oh, well either way I would like a sibling."
Me: "I don't think we are going to have anymore kiddo, so you need to go talk to your daddy."
C: "Okay. I will."

New Pet Idea

We are not able to have cats at the home because Abe and I are both allergic. The kids want a pet, but right now it just isn't in the cards for us. We can not have pets in our place which has stopped us from getting a dog. They have had fish before, but that is the extent of it. 

So the other day C says in the most serious voice... "momma, can I get a dolphin as a pet. It doesn't have to be big, but a baby little dolphin, would work".
