I have a confession...during the past year I have REALLY gained the weight and I know that "Deployment" is in the near future and lord knows I can't gain more!! So last week Tracy and I went and joined Weight Watchers!! Yes I have way more to loose that her but she is such a great support to me!!

I went in this morning for my weigh in and what????

I LOST 5.4

All I can do is work toward loosing again next week!! I am so excited!!

Just wanted to share with you!!!

Have a great day and when you all say your prayers mention my son Justin!! He is on his way to do some training!!

Remember: Keep Praying "IT WORKS!!"

Happy 5th Birthday!!!

My goodness, where has time gone!! I can't believe that this little girl is 5 years old today!!

I have been with her since the day she was born and I love her so much!!

She is such a sweet child, always giving a compliment.

I enjoy every second I get to spend with her!

Tracy and Derek have allowed me to take care of Alex and Avery and I can never tell the love I have for them and the family! I love them so much and I am so honored to be able to spend so many days with them! So thank you Tracy and Derek for sharing your family with me!! They have brought so much joy to my life. I know there are days that I would have never gotten out of bed and they brought smiles to my face and made that day so worth being out of bed!

I hope Avery has a wonderful day...I have her cookie cake made and we will celebrate one more time with her class at school today!!

You all enjoy this day and remember: Keep Praying it works!!

Hugs, Love, and Prayers to each of you!!

She went to Prom!!!

I can remember back 15 1/2 years ago, this beautiful little baby was born! My great-niece Autumn Leigh Parrish!!! She was so precious then and still is today!! I enjoy being around her so much and love her wonderful spirit that she has!! She really reminds me of my Bradley!!
Yesterday, she went to prom with her boyfriend Justin and she was absolutely beautiful!! She looked like a princess!!!

I love her hair, her dress, heck I love her!!!

I was with her when she was getting dressed and well I got to paint her toe nails!!! Every little thing counts!! :)
Not much going on here for me but life is fixing to get really busy! Easter is coming up, graduation, Birthdays and sadly to say...DEPLOYMENT!!! I know, I hate to hear that word and you all hate hearing it. But it is true and I do not like it but we have a count down going and he will be home with me to live in 467 days!!! :D
You all have a great day and remember:
Prayers work
Family is important
Friends are special
Hugs and Love to you all!!!

What been going on?

Ok well to start with NO pictures!! I have not had my camera with me a whole lot simply because life has been boring around here!
I will start off by saying that we are getting ready to head to the big ole stupid sand box again and I really hate to see it come...I know I made it through once but the dangers are still there and my nerves get the best of me just thinking about it. He is doing lots of training and won't be home much!! :( I hope that he gets a pre deployment but it just isn't looking like he will! All I can do is PRAY!!!
I have been doing school work and taking finals and getting finished up with this quarter!! I have to go in on Monday and turn in my English final and that will be it for me!! I have also been working when I am not at school so I have been busy! Just nothing all that exciting!!
Today I have Avery's Birthday Party and so I will be taking pictures of that and I will share those with you!! I hope to start blogging a little more now that the quarter of school is over!
I hope all is well with you!!
Hugs, Love and Prayers to you from me!!
Remember keep praying it works!!!

I got to have WHAT??

This is a picture of me with dots...chicken pox? Well I wish because then I would not have to have the shots!! As you all know I have been in school to become a Medical Assistant and it is getting down to the point to where I am fixing to do my intern. So therefore I have to have a immunization form. WHAT? I am 41 years old and both my parents have passed away and so has my pediatrician. So what in the world am I suppose to do? I have asked all my sisters if they remember me having the chicken pox and this is what GANKY sent me!! I laughed so hard I about peed my pants!!

I apparently have never had the Chicken Pox!! But I can get my immunization records from the Health Department!!! But I will still have to have several shots to get me where I can do my intern!! UGH...I HATE SHOTS!!!
I just had to blog about this and show you me with Chicken Pox!!! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!
