some posts ago suzanne left wrote this to me in the comments and i sobbed.
these words remind me of a verse that God spoke to me years ago in Isaiah 42:3. I don’t know why.

mommy..i’m unhappy — i sensed there was more so i laid on the bed with her and out it came.
we need to re-boot our FAMILY
reboot mean to restart-put in a new operating system and turning it on
so we talked and decided that our first course of action to our new operating system is to do a major de-clutter!
because here is the keeping it real part
and I am full of stress and that is not good for my health
Does God use our children to speak to us? I do believe so
The first step to rebooting one’s family
1. find the main thing that is causing a bump in the road and start there
the dumpster is coming Friday and the kids and I have all agreed to work all weekend cleaning the basement out
Ha ha! I know what I will do…blog about some of the little things I am loving! why you ask?
I am LOVING
pinning for some of my house projects. Light, texture, soft color layered all against a neutral background, layers of all sorts — just a few words that
now for my house… ( not quite the same is it…yet my friends…yet!)
talk about being uncomfortably real. I am taking off the doors of our kitchen cabinets to see if I can give these 50 year old things a face lift or botox or something! I will show you progress soon. I got a few color samples to try inside the cabinets. We are doing some open shelving on either side of the sink. We also tore out the overhead cabinets above the stove!!
here I said I had two goals for the week with one being cleaning out the hall closet.
and last but not least is my refrigerator! and the spill that happened the other day–
I am LOVING
trying new hair styles like twisting the hair and secring with bobbi pins but it doens’t quite look the same on me as on Grace sot I keep going back to the hat.
I am LOVING
trying new food and eating cleaner
tiff’s big bowl – plain shredded wheat, grape nuts & banana’s swiming in vanilla almond milk peeps:) ( inspired by Engine2 )
tried Nutella for the first time – wonderful all wrapped in crescent rolls and baked all soft and gooey!
my weird lunch one day…apples, peanut butter and pepperoni
I am LOVING
watching documentaries all last weekend. Nothing wrong with being educated on what we are eating.
DUCK DYNASTY..where has it been all my life! This is for you Becky I am seriously in love with this family. We watch them over and just laugh. The good laughs..the kind that makes you forget we live in a merry go round society that goes so fast and you just wanna get off and escape to another place and time kinda laugh…

dark ~depressing ~ dirty
last Christmas we had painted the walls and it looked like this
a little paint, ripping up the carpet and our most recent project
::: planking the walls on either side of the fireplace :::
completely changed the vibe of the room
and we didn’t even fill the nail holes!
in which I TOTALLY stalked Ashley and stole the color from one of her favorite’s…couldn’t help myself
