Favorite Book Of All Time

Ok...I may have skipped a couple of days but I am still going to stick with it.

Of course as a blogger, I love to read.
Novels are for sure my reading material of choice.

My favorite of all time, seriously since I first started reading...
Sabriel by Garth Nix

Yea, the old school cover just has so much more power.
As a book & novel junkie, this book has EVERYTHING in it.
Bit of Dry Comedy

The main character, a young lady who doesn't know her background, history or heritage. Comes into her own through an exciting and deathly adventure.

Love it...just talking about it makes me what to go read it.
Yup...Totally starting it tonight. Or at lunch time today.

My Citrus Salmon

Its not a Thursday...but lets throwdown anyway!
My absolute favorite way to do salmon. And As always [like everyone says] it is super easy!

Olive Oil
Lemon Juice
Montreal Steak Seasoning [McCormick]
Salmon Rub Seasoning [McCormick]


  • Heat oven at 400 or Broil High
  • Drizzle salmon with olive oil and lemon juice, just enough to moisten it
  • Sprinkle on seasoning as light [or heavy] as you would like
  • Bake for 25 min or Broil for 10-15 min
  • Finished when flaky or crispy edges [for more well done]
Give it a try and let know if you like it.

I'm Looking Forward to...

This past summer we took a family trip to Disney. It was my daughter's first time, my son's second...and my 6th...maybe, lol.
If you are a kid at heart and you haven't been to Disney, you have to GO!
It is amazing. Just the atmosphere of good clean fun and magic. Amazing.

So it is not surprising that this is the place that I can't wait to return to next year. 
We are already thinking of when we are going to go and spend out time with the mouse himself.
To me, this is the best vacation spot.  At least a family vacation.

Disney, I will be back with you soon.  Don't you worry...

Favorite Scripture [Quote]

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 
Romans 8:18 

When you have gone through certain things in your life, you have no choice but to call on the Master and admit that only He can help you through.  About 4 years ago, the longest trial, moment, speed bump, situation in my life just blind sided me.
I was knocked down to the deepest pit and I couldn't get out.  Only Christ could help me, mend me, and make me whole again.
I had to remember, this was happening for a reason.  This was what i needed to get closer to Him and to do his Kingdom work. It was needed and it helped me realize He was Lord and He deserved my everything. Even when things were good, I should have been focusing on Him.
And no matter how bad things got, I had faith that a better joy was coming...And I am proof that it is.
Trust Him.

To be a ThunderStorm...

If I had a super power, I would want to be able to control the weather.

Thunderstorms on command.
Snow Days when I didn't want school.
Warm Sunny days when I was tired of the rain.

Yup. Storm had it made!

Fog cover when you trying to duck the cops.
Lighting striking when you don't feel like watching the news with your mom.

My kind of talent.
Because really, the weather can effect your mood at times. And when your having a crappy day, sometimes you just want it to down pour so you can share the misery.

3 Ways to Win My Heart

I'm not a complicated woman.
I don't play games. I keep it real ALL THE TIME.

When your almost 29 [LOL], you have no time for it.

Three ways to my heart...

Good Food

A man that lives a Christ-centered life, loves and puts his family while still being able to take me out to an amazing meal.

Yup. Prayer. Done!

Home...Where My Heart Is

To be honest...I am fairly predictable.
If you read my blog, you know what I LOVE. And what I would call home...

These little people bless me everyday with their love. They took my heart from their existence.

Where ever we are together is HOME for us!

What I Wore...

Technically I wore this on Saturday...but today I didn't wear anything but sweats and an old tee. LoL!
no one wants to hear about that!

Charlotte Russe Midi Dress
A friend of mine has a birthday party and the theme was 'Black n White'.
This lil number is from one of my favorite stores, Charlotte Russe. I love their deals and the style is always right up my ally.

My pearls are actually inherited from my grandmother. I wear them with everything. This is the only necklace I ever wear, actually.

Charlotte Russe Pumps
My shoes happen to be from C.R. as well.
I love that place. These simple pumps are super comfy and easy to dance in.

I might have been feeling myself a bit...

I hope you enjoyed this fashion post! Let me know if you want to see more in the future!

Something Beautiful to Me

I don't care if it a played out an over used....this is the type of relationship/marriage I want.
I strive to live a Christ-centered life and I want it to extend to my marriage as well as my children.
Every aspect of my life should reflect this. Christ. His Word. The Holy Spirit. Guiding and steering me. To be in his will. To do the great work he has called me to do.
