Some People...

Today is an insane long day at work for me, so on my lunch break I spent the first half going to get coffee (and the second writing this) anyways as I'm ordering my coffee the gentleman behind me steps forward and says "I would love to get that for you." Now I know all to well that this kind of thing just irks my husband so I said "Thats sweet but I'm married, and plus I'm buying for the whole office." well that didn't work on this guy, what does he say next?
"Sounds like you get to treat all the girls to coffee then." I frowned but thought fine you want to buy for the office I'll let you buy for the office and proceeded to order drinks for ALL the girls I work with :-P Well as if that wasnt enough he says "Thats all?" Then to the lady behind the counter "Why dont you throw a six shot americano in there with that" I turned and looked at him like he was an idiot and said "Who for!?!" He laughed and said "For luck." ICKY! Haha that is a very very bad line. "It's not a four leaf clover" I snapped. "it's a cup of coffee and your gonna need a LOT more luck then that."

I'm not telling this story to say Oooo look at me haha but to say WHY are men so stupid! I mean really what is buying me coffee going to do for you besides empty your pockets and get some snide remark. Obviously they dont know me and dont know exactly how I would respond, but I hope that any girl would have more respect for herself to fall for that cornyness (If thats even a word) I mean really I'm a person, you cant buy me or trick me into loving you with terrible lines. Where have all the real gentlemen gone?

This same guy didnt even hold the door for me on the way out, now weather thats another sign of his lack of class or his way of expressing he was more then peeved at my own lack of so called class I dont know. But I did take the coffees and the extra americano and I assure you, when I am bouncing off the walls tonight I will owe it all to the gentleman I met at Starbucks today.

Unexpected blessing!

I'm so excited to announce the newest addition to our ever growing family.Her name is Julia, but now that she is ours Cody might change it to something more... I dont know, manly! But it's such a huge blessing to know that he will be able to get to work and back in one piece. This really was a God thing with how it worked out with the timing and everything and we feel so excited to have this "new" truck, it's exactly what Cody has been looking for!

Jolly Rizzo

We have gone through our share of toys with Rizzo. the boy can chew through ANYTHING!Including the Jolly Ball Teaser. However it's gone take him some time so it's a step up from before. Like any "teenager" we have to limit his time with this toy. (its his xbox) he gets to worked up and stressed out bu it, but if we would let him he would never stop playing with this toy :-)

P.S. Please ignore the nastiness that is our bedroom right now.

And Erin I think you need one of these! He is chewing it but its not coming apart at all yet!

Psalms 119:28 My soul is weary with sorrow: strengthen me according to your word.

Sometimes in our lives we face things we could never understand. Things that don’t have an answer and you just have to know that God is at work even in this, sometimes we can see him, and other times its hard to even feel him. Death in particular is something that rarely feels like the right thing…

In my family we have faced several losses that seem much to soon. Each time you face the same questions, and each time you get the same answers, or lack there of. You struggle through the emotions and pain both for your own loss, but often times more for the pain you see others facing. No matter the situation only one thing stays completely the same, and it’s a peace that can only be explained by a loving and merciful God…

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
John 14:27

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
Colossians 3:15


Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might.
