The one birthday for me was not 16 or 21 but 30.

I looked at women who were 30 and it seemed they had it together, they had bliss. My 30th has come and my expectations have been exceeded. I am living that bliss right now. I am more at peace and happier than I have ever been before.

I have my husband, the one man meant for me. God put us in each others lives at the perfect time. He knows how to "handle" all of my insecurities. He can put a smile on my face even when I am trying to start a fight mad at him. He loves me with everything he has and he shows me everyday.

My children are healthy and happy (most of the time). I have good friends in my life who enjoy my company for who I am. I found the courage through God, to rid my life of the "friends" who were hurting me and I am better for it.

My "new" family is wonderful and supportive, I couldn't have asked for better.

I am 30 now and I have found my bliss!

This post was inspired by Mama Kat, head on over to find out how others found their bliss.

One Step Closer

It's no secret that times in the real estate business are tough these days. The office I work in has been holding on by a thread and it's only just starting to show signs of improvement and at a very slow pace.

The people I work for are amazing and care very much about me as I do them--We are more like family. So I know it was hard for them to cut my hours about 2 weeks ago but I have to admit I am loooovvvving it!!! I now leave work in time to pick up my boys from school when before I worked until 5:00 everyday. Those 2 extra hours added to my day are the best!

I enjoy the extra time spent on the playground after school visiting with other moms and watching our children play with each other and look for turtles :).

Sitting and doing homework while having an after school snack.

Going home to make dinner without the pressure of having it on the table in less than 10 minutes because if I don't everyone will "just die of starvation".

It's only 2 extra hours a day, but it means so much more than that--I am closer to being the stay at home mom I dream about.

One Last Farewell to Summer

We live on the lake but really aren't boaters. But, with the wonderful weather we had this weekend, we couldn't pass up the invite of one more day on the water with good friends. It was beautiful and the weather was perfect!

A New Host for My Wishlist

Happy Birthday to Me!! I don't usually post about giveaways but I made an exception about a month ago here because I really wanted this wax seal necklace with stamp from Lauren Nicole Gifts.

I didn't win it, however my wonderful mother-in-law took notice and got it for me for my birthday--yay for me! Not only is the necklace beautiful, but the Mr. and I have the same initials so the stamp can be used on all of our mail plus!

Here I am in all my excitement

And the goods

Note to the Mr. who sometimes reads our blog: For ideas on presents for the Mrs., check back frequently.

Happy Birthday Kaden!

The birthday boy wanted to make pancakes for breakfast.
I couldn't pass up a chance to get a picture of him making them in his underwear.
They were delicious!

It's a girl!

The signs just keep pointing that way anyway. Over at Make it Luxe she was talking about Morph Thing where you can take your pictures and it morphs them together to show you what your child will look like. I love fun stuff like this so of course I went over there and gave it a try.

So from this gorgeous man

and me

The result is this

I don't know, what do you think?

Yeah! It's Soccer Time Again!

We are definitely into our soccer game and this is Kaden's first year! First practice was quite funny watching all the little ones learn how to control the ball. Kaleb's practice was like watching a game. I am so excited for the new season which starts in a couple weeks.
