Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in GOD's sight.

1 Peter 3:3-4

Dirty day

Today has been busy, but relaxing! Makes sense right?! Okay.. Totally not! This morning my sister woke me up (Jacob is with his mom for the weekend) and we just kinda got up and watched TV. Bill was at our church's softball tourny for the day and my mom was still in Texas. All of a sudden, my phone started buzzing like crazy! Bill was calling. He said he was going to be at the house in 30 to pick us up and bring us out to the softball games for the day. CRAP! I haven't brushes my hair/teeth, eattin anything, or gottin dress. Pretty much everything you need to do to look nice... So I got off the phone with Bill and I told London to shut off the TV and get dressed right now! I turned on the stove and put some water in a pan then ran upstairs! I told London to get ready (which takes her like 5 minutes) then to go tell me when the water started to bubble. I was getting ready, makeup, hair, clothes, teeth, etc... Then she yelled to me that the bubbles started so I threw some hot dogs in, not knowing if there was going to be food at the games or not, then finished up. I got London's DS, Bill's Itouch, my Itouch, a coloring book, colored pencils, some pens, and a couple of movies, not knowing how London would respond being in the hot hot sun all day! I felt like a mom...! We got all our junk together and ourselves ready just when Bill pulled in the driveway!

We drove to our destination and I was so excited! I love watching other people play sports! That makes me sound lazy... But I do! Some of my favorite sports to watch are hockey, baseball/softball, and football!! Back to my story. So we got there and we watched a game, they won. Watched the next game, which was fantastic, and they lost.. Now they were playing there last game ever, or at least the season, and it was so tense. If we won, they would get a trophy! But... they... WON! And everyone went crazy...! Then I said to London in a joking matter "Hey Lon, we should go over to the opening and when the guys come out give them high fives!" Well she took it seriously and ran over to where the team would exit after praying. I actually kinda liked it! haha The guys high fived us, me more than London because most of them didn't even see her standing there. We went, got the trophy, took a picture (which I would love to share with you but it is unfortunately not on my camera), and left! I had a great time!

Once we got home and then headed almost right away to pick up my mom. I was so happy to see her. Once we got her in the car and headed home... Ordered pizza and hung out inside for the night! Over all my day was dirty but fun! Now I am off to the shower because I'm guessing the folks at church would greatly appreciate it!

How was your day? Anything exciting happen?

Good good night

BTW: slanted lettering in the post will be one post and writing like this will be the main post.

My babysitting client got caught in horrible traffic so my job got delayed. Once she FINALLY got here, one of her daughters almost threw up in my driveway (car sick)!! She didn't but she was like green all the way home!! I felt so bad for her :( We got home and the kids were super hungry and Amanda (the mom) was going to be late for her event so she grabbed some food and ran upstairs to get ready... I got the kids some food and everyone was happy!(: To be quite honest, I thought it was going to be a looooooong night!

So like I said, we got food and the kids were happy! The oldest was at her cousins house for the night seeping over so I only had the three younger ones. After eating we went outside because C wanted to swim in the babies pool! She's so silly!! We went out and she swam. Then B wanted baby A to go swimming, why not! So I got a swim diaper and let him go! (I saw the neighbor guy looking at me too. This story will continue threw out the post).

Eventually B wanted to go into the pool to but it was A's bedtime so she came and got dressed while I put A ni-nigh! B and C were already in the pool by the time I got back outside! C got a 16th of an inch cut on one of your little toes and was SCREAMING at the top of her lungs (so the neighbors probably thought I was killing her)! I got her a band aid which she put in the arch of her foot (one of those cute things kids do) and was fine. He was just kinda watching us and I was kinda getting creeped out but also thought it was awesome that a guy was looking at me and not in a way that he wanted to kill me or throw ice cold water on me. C then asked to go to sleep and what babysitter or parent is going to tell a child they cant go to sleep! That's just mean... And it was almost her bedtime so by the time she got her cup of water, brushed her teeth, got her pj's on, found her blanky, and got in bed, it would be her bedtime!

Afterwards I came outside and B was hanging in the pool. I then had an AMAZING idea! Wanna know what it is?!?!?! Hu? HU? Okay stop... Ill tell you! I took the baby pool and brought it up to the grass ( it was on the sidewalk towards the bottom of the driveway) and got two chairs set opposite sides of each other. Then got the baby blocks and ice cubes, inserted them into the pool. Got two towels. Set them next to the chairs, and called it Spa! Good idea hu?! haha The ice cubes were the rock pebble thing and the blocks were the nice, calming smells! (another dork moment). B came over and thought it was one of the best things in the world, if not the best!(: Still staring and smiling. I sneaked a couple looks to see what he was doing. The water was soooooooo cold so we filled up two Tupperware containers and two drinking cups with hot water then dumped them into the pool to hopefully make it nice and warm. It was now bedtime but I let her stay up and plus, mom wanted to have some snuggle time with her daughter!(:

I got her to put her jammies on and got her a snack. She was still SO energetic so she came outside with me to clean up our toys mess. He was inside, dang it! I got all the blocks, which if put in the correct order make a puzzle, and gave it to her to do while I got everything else inside. She finished it, I got all the stuff where it belonged, and just sat down. Then guess who turns the corner, Amanda!! haha So then we went inside and waited for Bill (my step dad) to come pick me up sense Andy (Amanda's hubby) was out of town. It was such a fun night with hanging with 3 of my absolute favorite kids, a cute boy looking at me, everyone in a good mood, and a spa night with my girl, B!

THEN Bill came to pick me up and we were driving home... b.o.r.i.n.g. Once we took that turn, I KNEW we weren't going home, but instead McD's for ice cream cones!! NUmmmmm.... You can never have enough of them! We got our ice cream then went home... :) Tonight was one of the best nights I've had in a while!

Babysitting+ McDonald's ice cream=Heaven on earth!

What was your nights events?

Today all the way to Saturday I am nannying for my siblings. Where are my parents you ask? My mom is in Texas for work and Bill works all day. This morning I had to get to get London out the door to go to Girl Scout camp. She was kinda emotional (missing mommy already) but we got past it with some lame jokes... I let her check her gmail (which is her new thing!!). She emailed mom and we googled a joke to tell her, London thought it was pretty funny I on the other hand well... anyway! She went off, I made some (delicious) brownies! So I just kinda did absolutly nothing all day long and LOVED it!(: London came home around 3:30 and we had our afternoon snack, brownies and ice cream :D it was delicous! Now were just hanging out waiting for Bill to make dinner.

What did you do today?

Would you ever wear one of these? If so I'm sorry to "bash your party", this is just my opinion... As Im sure you can tell, you wont be seeing me in this anytime soon!

Just one of the most rememberable

Last night I went to my youth pastors house for a Bonfire/bible study. It was so much fun! I've been thinking.... I really need to start doing everything I can! Like... I'm going into high school!! There will be things that I cant do now (like middle school bonfires) because I am growin' up..! Now for missions trip I will be going out of county instead of 7 hours away! Its a great but big change... Anyway, my life speech is over! Back to last night... So I went over to his house and just hung out at first! Talk to many friends including Ali and Kiley! It was such a fun time. After many s'mores and words spoken we had some Jesus time. We talked about many things, including patience which I think I lack sometimes...! It was a just good eye opener! Then I got water all over me thanks to Stephen and Kristen... I went home with a wet shirt (don't worry it wasn't see threw!). I cant wait to go next week which is also a pool party!!! Well off to babysitting. Ill try to update if I have enough time tonight sense this was such a short and pointless post. Ya, sorry about that! haha

Whats your favorite thing about bonfires s'mores or chatting with friends/family?

Floor Plans

Im having one of those days where I have nothing to do... So guess what I did. I googled floor plans! I know... Call me a dork! I love looking at houses and floor plans! Look at this one below:

I love the idea of the bedroom in the back. If this was my floor plan, I would have that bedroom either be the play room or the guest room. I would probably have that be the play room then have the basement be the guest area. A huge, finished, basement. It would have a great room with a flat screen, movies, bedroom, and bathroom. Just like a little apartment!(: That way my guest would have there own little, private, area. Is that cool or a little over done? Haha I kinda dream big... Hey, theres no problem with that!

My top floor: 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, laundry room, loft (study area).

I want all my kids bedrooms on the top floor! I would love to have all my kids have there own bathrooms but for that to happen, my husband would have to be Bill Gates! haha! Sense I am lazy, I would love to have the laundry room upstairs so that I dont have to bring everybody's laundry down stairs. I mean what if I trip and all of that dirty laundry goes everywhere!!! Now I am just making excuses.... Also a study area where homework could be done.

Main floor: 3 or 4 car garage, big room (play room). family room, decent kitchen, dinning room, office, bathroom.

3 or 4 car garage well thats pretty self explanatory! Play room, that will be the one room in my house that will never be clean and I will not care. That will be the kids room where all of the kids toys will be. Family room would be where the TV is aka living room. Kitchen, I would love a white kitchen but that needs to be clean 24/7 so I would want granite counter tops with dark brown cabinits, and stainless steal appliances. Dinning room... Oh! I would love lots of windows in my dinning room! Office, that would be MY area! Sense I am going to be an Interior Designer (hopefully!) I will need an office so I would love it to be right off of the entry door so I dont have random customers going threw my house! Bathroom, just a toliet and sink.

Basement: Look above...:D

What is your dream house or living area?

My mood: Great!

This whole online school/ regular school subject has turned good! The stress has gone down lots and life is good!(: I just got done with babysitting two little cuties for a few hours (thanks Jenny)! It was super fun! Every summer I track all the money I make then at the end I get to see a number that makes me proud! Last summer I made $824 which is a TON of money!! I know I will not make that much because of the economy and that is completely okay! Babysitting for me is not about the cash! It's about hangin out with cute kids and feeling like a parent.:) haha

What is your favorite activity to do while babysitting?

Sunday, July 10, 2011


Procrastination is a thief which stops us from making and following through on the important issues and actions of life. What are the signs that this giant is setting up camp in our lives, and what can we do to defeat him? Watch this video:

Butts, butts, butts, butts... Do you need help cleaning up your butts? Let me help...

First off you have a pile of loose ends. Your little enemy says "No need to finish". Okay!

Next you have trash of disorder. Your little enemy says "No need for order". Okay!

Lastly you have an excuse of convienience. Your little enemy says "No need to hurry". Okay!

Three very simple things that you could fix to make your life less stressful right there.

I just last week experienced this and got bit in the butt! Last Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday I babysat for two little girls from 8am-1pm. TuesdayI set my alarm for 6:30 thinking "Oh, I want to look nice and pretty and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah..."

BUZZ I got this thought in my head "Well I'm super tired and I stayed up way to late and I rather be fully rested than pretty". Okay!

BUZZ "Uh... I didn't even fall asleep yet! Okay Ill get up at 7:20 and have plenty of time! No backing out!" Okay!

BUZZ "SERIOUSLY! Well I promised myself I'd get up so I better." *Slowly gets up and starts to get ready*

I'm guessing you want to know the part were I get revenge hu! Well... I got dressed and put on my eyeshadow RING then the doorbell rang! I hadn't brushed my teeth, my hair was in a ponytail and I didn't have any mascara on! I quick did my lashes, threw my eyeliner and mascara in my purse and went downstairs! I opened the door and she was very welcoming. I tried to talk the lest amount as possible! Once they left, the baby feel asleep so I threw on some eyeliner and grabbed some gum. Thank goodness I can be a girly girl at times and just happened to have a little bag thing with ponytail holders, stretchy headbands, and bobby pins! I learned to get up at 6:45 the next two mornings and to not listen to that little devil elf!

In this situation, I learned the hard way... I cant even believe that I am putting this humiliating story on the world wide web but hey, some times you got to...! Right?!

What is your story when procrastination took over you?

The W word

The W word is one very commonly used by me. I use it at least once a day unfortunally... Do you use it? Do you even know what word I am talking about? Haha... Well let me tell you. The word is.... want. I want a new Itouch. I want a new laptop. I want two more lenses for my camera. I want a bigger house. I want for Mona to come back. I want for my Grandma to come back. I want to be able to drive. Right there I just said "it" eight times... I am going to try really super hard not to use the W word. Instead use I am thankful... I am thankful that I get to have an Itouch. I am thankful that we have laptops. I am thankful that I have the privilage of owning such a nice camera! I am thankful that I have two houses that keep me safe all the time. I am thankful Mona and Grandma are in a safe place with no more pain. I am thankful that I have four parents to drive me around everywhere. Doesnt that have a better kick to it anyway?(: Writers do it all the time, they change the words. So... As a human, I am going to change my words. Instead of saying "I want tacos for dinner!" I will say "Thank you mom for this dinner that will give my body the vitamins I need to live."

Thanks for reading!

Well, thats for hopefully understanding and I will do my best to get some new stuff and bring it up. In the mean time, look at this give away!!

My Favorite Things: Hair

TIGI Bed Head Hairspray

I am in LOVE with this stuff! It smells amazing and gets the job done! I currently have two bottles in my room right now. One just for when my other one runs out. I got these last year some time and Im still on my first bottle! So yea, it smells sooo good! It doesnt have that blah hairspray smell! It comes out of your hair real easy in the shower! ALSO its not heavy! Most hairsprays are so heavy, I feel 10lbs. heavier! But this stuff is just light. My hair is thick, and I mean THICK and this stuff is my go to when its one of those days! After I straighten my hair its frizzy so I take this and put my arm out straight then spray. All over my head. Then I comb it and it looks awesome! If I were to recommend a hairspray, this is it!

Tall! I am 5'7'' so I need a talker man so I am not taller than my husband.

Would you rather be 13 or 30?

30! When I was 13, that was the year everything went wrong.. I would NEVER want to replay that again! Not even if someone gave me $1,00,000,000 and a free life time supply of ice cream! It was horrible... I think it would be fun to be 30 because I will have started my family (hopefully) and have an amazing marriage!

Chocolate or roses?

Depends on who is giving it to me.. I love flowers (roses) but I also LOVE dessert foods (chocolate)... I would expect roses from a love one but chocolates from a friend.

My awards for the lonely, amazing blogger award goes to these four:

Congratulations ladies! Cant wait to see your answers!

Oh! Before I forget...

What are your fourth of July plans?

Sunday, July 3, 2011


Today the topic at church was busyness...

Are you busy? So am I. Today's sermon (like many many others) really got me... Life is much like a battle. We are completely surrounded and totally outnumbered! By what, you may ask... Options!

Do you feel like you are doing something 24/7? You have babysitting/nannying Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Golf Tuesday. Basketball Thursday. Travel for basketball on weekends... Obviously fill in your activities and hobbies...

What do YOU do about it? Do you, just go with the flow and breath when you can get your head above water? Do you get depressed from the stress and possibly anxiety? Do you just pray bed time comes faster everyday? I have a better solution..!

1. Ask God for help.
- He is just WAITING for you to ask! He knows what you feel! What you think! He just sits there, wondering when you will stop and turn to Him.

2. Understand your purpose.
- What is your purpose here on Earth? Is it to help the disabled? Is it to teach the next generation? Is it to capture peoples special moments in life?

3. Chart a new course.
- If you are just overwhelmed, you need to stop! Now! Just freeze the outside world! YOU, just you, need to start your REAL life.


1. Admit it!
- admit it!! Tell your friends! Tell your family! I'll admit it right now! I, especially during the school year, just get frazzled and busy and overwhelmed! I'll admit it on the world wide web! My life is crazy! Between switching from my moms to dads house during the week. My babysitting business is taking off! Trying to spend time with my family at the pool or golfing! Finding ME time...!

2. Stop it!
- doesn't get any more simple than that. Stop! S-t-o-p. Are you really doing what God had in mind? Pastor Pete gave a great example today... He said something in the world of this:

I have this vision that when it comes the day of my funeral and my kids are asked to speak about there dad this is what they will say, "Well he was a busy man! He attended many meetings. Talked to many people..."

How sad would that be if you were so busy that at your funeral all your kids could say was "Oh she was a busy woman. Always out somewhere doing something!" That would be so sad!

So your homework for the week is to make a list. Write down everything you do! Babysit, clean houses, mow the lawn, grocery shop, go to the mall... Everything!! Then write down how important they are. Number them! Find the last three lest important things. Drop them. Cross them out! Do whatever you need to do! Let them go! Make a hole in your paper! Don't do those things for just this week! See how less busy you are! I bet it will help... Let me know your outcome. If your list is crazy, I have a new word for you! Wanna know what it is?? No. Start telling people, no! No no no no no! I wish you luck and let me know how this works for ya!!

Have fun! Don't blow yourself up tomorrow!
