My 3rd day! How I am loving this photo challenge so far! However I'm sure I won't be liking it in a few months..but who knows..maybe I will love it all year!
Today's picture brings you this pest. We call him Duke. We do like him but he really is a very big pest. His nickname is meat head! 

Well, tomorrow starts the first day back to school for a certain little lady I know so off to get showers and hit the sack!

I love January. I love all the "new" January brings.
To me January means fresh calendars, new goals, new memories, and just plain a d simple "fresh" starts!

Here is my fresh start! I got a treadmill about a week ago so my 
"New year new me" is going to all about a fitness journey. I'm going to try to make it a very healthy year for myself. 

My day 2 photo for my photo a day project is my time and miles ran on the treadmill. it's a start.a slow one but a start. 

Happy blogging!

Hello 2017

Well hello there new year! So happy to welcome you😊.  So a few of my friends do this 365 photo project and it's actually pretty neat to see their family and daily lives in pictures so my sister and I are going to give it a try!

 So this is my day 1/365 photo to start off my year in photos! We went today to our camp spot to check on things and I happened to snap this picture of the geese hanging out on the frozen lake.  This view is so pretty in the summer and even more beautiful in the fall. My little family can't wait to spend many summer days and nights out here this year!

So here you have it-I'm going to try this blogging thing again!

I welcome you with open arms 2017 and I can not wait to see what you have in store for me and my little family 😘

I had an okay day at work. Kelsie had a great day at school today. And Jeff enjoyed his alone time at home sitting in the hot tub. Super jealous of him by the way!

Tonight at home was pretty relaxing.(a little more than it should've been) but oh well. Kelsie finished up her homework and I made dinner!

Kelsies favorite meal ever! 

Off to get showers and sit down and read before bed. Tata for now 😘


I am going to try to be better about this blog thing. I am mainly using it as a journal for me and my everyday with my family. I do not keep a book for each year of kelsies life so I am going to try to make this our little "book". I want her to have something to look at when she is my age about our life. So I am going to take pictures everyday and write my daily thoughts or special events that we do and different things we go through. I am exciting to carry on this journal for us, her..for her..

So here is my photo for Monday the 4th. we don't drink coffee but we do love hot chocolate. I was at work freezing so I got me something warm 😊 hope you all had a great Monday.

A little catching up

It's been a long time! Sorry for my absence but we (like many other families) have been extremely busy. A year ago on October Jeff and I got married! It was such a fun and amazing day.  I will have to post pictures later because for some reason it's not letting me right now. 

I don't really have a whole lot of exciting news at the moment. Other than work and life we are pretty boring people! 

I just wanted to say hi! More on the past year in a few days.

Until then

30 days of thankfulness: epic fail

So as I knew it would happen (sad I know) I failed at the 30 days of thankfulness. Not that I don't have 30 + things to be thankful for this month has been crazy busy! I've had a few late days at work and 3rd grade homework has kept me busy.

So to finish my 30 days of thankfulness I'd like to add that I'm thankful for all of my family, my friends, my job, my home and my health. I'm thankful I'm able to get out of bed and tend to my child and fiance's needs. I'm thankful I'm able to help with the bills and can help put food on our table for 3 meals a day. I love my life and I thank the lord for everyday he gives me.

Hope you all have a great day! Bundle up because its cold out there...brrrr!

30 days of thankfulness days 5,6,7&8

Wow. I have a lot to catch up on!
Day 5 today I am thankful for my sister Melissa. She is not only my sister but truly my greatest friend! Even though we didn't see much of each other in our really younger days when we reached middle school her and I became best friends. We were attached at the hip ( as some would say). I am thankful for her patience to deal with a son with special needs. I love that we talk on the phone everyday and can reminisce about things from the past and discuss what's going on in the present and dream of our futures. Just like we are little girls again. Thank you sister for always listening to me! I love you to the moon and back!

Day 6 I am thankful for my little sister Julie. Even though times are tough for her she still walks around everyday with her head held high. Im thankful she has become stronger and is willing to take on life. We have different goals and aspects in life but I'm glad she is my sister. I'm glad she calls me when she needs advice. It makes me feel honored that she has that much faith in me to give her the right answers. I pray for her daily and hope the good lord looks over her and her babies. I love you Julie and am glad you are trying to get your life back.

Day 7 I am thankful for my 3 brothers. They have always been there for me when I needed them. I don't see them as often as I like but we live miles apart. It sucks actually. But I do love them with all my heart!

Day 8 I am thankful for all of my nieces and nephews. I love to hear the words aunt cathy come out of their mouths. I live them all like my very own. Michael, Blake, Hunter, Austin, Alice, Robbie, and Canyen aunt cathy loves you more than words can explain! Xoxoxo to all of you :)

Happy Friday to you all and I hope you all have a great weekend!
