"Horrified Looks"

Talking with a friend a couple weeks ago about life in general he suggested that when I am listening to my favorite songs I should play close attention to the words to find out what they mean to me.  Ever since then I have been hearing the words in a completely different way than I ever have.

"Horrified looks from
Everyone in the room
But I'm only looking at you."

This is from a Taylor Swift song (of course) where she breaks up a wedding when the guy was marrying an awful girl.

What it means to me at the moment:

For the majority of my life people have always felt the need to try and control me with their opinions and their life style.  Being the ME that I am, I always choose to be ME.  I drown out the thoughts, opinions, ideas, hurts, pains and experiences of others as well as my mind and in the quiet I listen to my heart.  I find that that is the only place where MY true answers lie, within me.  People always look outside themselves for answers, but I have found that all my answers are within my heart and my soul and God has equipped each of us to access him at anytime. 

As people continue to gaze with "horrified looks" I will always continue to keep the focus on my life, truth and happiness.

"Others may judge you from the outside looking in, but they do not know you, they do not see you, and so their judgements are not valid.  Do not make them valid by taking them on as your own.  They have no meaning.  Do not wait for others to see you as you really are, for they see you through the eyes of their own pain."

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.


 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!










Settling Into Spring

Georgia has been absolutely beautiful for spring so far.
I love almost aspects.
The blue skies, the greenery, the flowers, being outside, having our waterfall back on, nights outside and so much more.
I noticed today that my seeds are starting to sprout in our garden and that makes me incredibly excited and proud. I even love the rain and the storms, every thing is so cozy and not cold!

And best of all, having friends and family to enjoy it with.

The parts we could do without is the pollen and i85 going up on flames.
