A prayer for today....

"Lord, keep me mindul that the little things I do every day to raise my children, I do for You. Some days are harder than others, but let me shine with Your love and reflect what is pleasing in Your eyes."

Week 2 - Project Simplify

Here is the link for week 2. I am not sure how much I will get done for this week since we have got a lot going on this week of Spring Break but we will see. My goal through this whole project is to get what I can done and be satisfied with that.

I think I will end up posting picks at the end of the project. We will see. Good luck this week!

Project Simplify starts this week. This week the hot spot is your wardrobe. Read about it here.

Do the best you can with the time you have. That is what I am going to do. I don't have much time but will do the best I can.

Project Simplify

How perfect is this! At least for me and my word for the year. It also falls in line for my theme for March - Spring Cleaning.

Do you want to join me?

February Theme

So my February theme is Love. Very original right? Well I have not done the greatest job with it. Time has really been slipping away from me but one thing I did do was do little gifts for Wendell over Valentine's weekend. It was fun to spread it out over a series of days. I think he enjoyed it.

Our Valentine's was very low key. We were going to try to go out to eat but Brayson was very tired when I picked him up from daycare. So we ordered Olive Garden to go and Wendell picked it up. Which really worked out so much better. We did not have to wait forever at a restaurant and we got to eat by ourselves while Brayson took a little nap.

Great Quote

"Faith is not a matter of impressions or probabilities or appearances. Faith is the assurance that what God as said in His Word is true, and that God will act accordingly. This is confident faith."

Catch Up Post

Happy New Year Y'all!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and fun New Years!

We had a great Christmas Break. I was able to be off for almost a week and 1/2 from work. It was a much needed break. We did a lot of traveling but we did get to spend our first Christmas morning at our own home. In the past we have been at my mom's or my in-laws on Christmas Day. But since we had Brayson, we have decided to have Christmas morning at our own home. And it was very nice and relaxing!

I turned the big 4-0 on the 29th! Not as traumatic as turning 30. I have actually looked foward to turning 40. Kinda weird. We went to New Orleans for my birthday without Brayson. It was my first time totally away from him. We missed him but it was a much needed break. We did a lot of walking, ate beignets, seafood, and po-boys from Mothers. Yum! I hope to post some pics later. I broke our camera over the break so we had to buy a new one before we went to NOLA and we have not uploaded the new software on our computer yet.

So it is a New Year and we all have new resolutions. This year I decided to have only one resolution: To spend time with the Lord everyday. This is the most important thing I can do this year.

This falls in inline with my word for 2011. Simplify!

Simplify - to make less complex or complicated; make plainer or easier

I want my life to be less complex or complicated. I want to make it plainer or easier where it is in my power to do so.

So that is where my one resolution fits. No list of things I can't keep up with or can't remember. Just a simple one where if I complete it, the year will be a success no matter what else happens.

Now I do have other goals. Each month I want to have a theme. This month is organization. Each theme will work with my word for 2011. I want to work on organizing my home so we can simply live and not be so suffocated by it. I know I probably won't have everything organized by the end of the month but it is a start. And by having it is a theme for the month, it is not overwhelming. I will get what I can done and move on from there.

So what is your resolution(s), goals, word for the year?
