Zebra....Rock Star...

Love my girl... So Saturday she was going to a birthday party and I asked her what she wanted to wear, and she said she wanted to be a zebra. So I walked in to her room come out with this dress, and she says "yes mom that will be perfect"!

  This morning after breakfast I told Raegan we needed to get dressed so we could go to church and she told me she wanted to be a Rock Star. Again I walked into her room pulled out some clothes and put this outfit together for her. She got dressed went a looked in the mirror and said "turn up the music mom and find me a drum, cause I'm going to rock this place"!
Where does my girl come up with these things!!!

I'm wide awake

Yeah, I was in the dark ~ I was falling hard ~ With an open heart ~ I'm wide awake
How did I read the stars so wrong? ~ I'm wide awake ~ And now it's clear to me ~ That everything you see ~ Ain't always what it seems ~ I'm wide awake ~ Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

I wish I knew then  | What I know now | Wouldn't dive in | Wouldn't bow down

I'm wide awake ~ Not losing any sleep ~ I picked up every piece ~ And landed on my feet
I'm wide awake ~ Need nothing to complete myself, no

I don't have to pretend |  And it's too late | The story's over now, the end

I'm wide awake ~ God knows that I tried ~ Seeing the bright side ~ I'm wide awake 
But I'm not blind anymore...

I'm wide awake

Back to life

Back to reality....

Life has sure been full of it's ups and downs these last few months, but I think I can say that it's starting to mellow out. Life is always full of change, some of it good and some of it bad, you have to take it all in stride and know that God has a plan for you. Slightly lost on what God's plan is for me right now, but I will say that God has placed some crazy things on my heart this last year, and sometimes not knowing when or how I was supposed to do these crazy things, everything has always fallen into place and I have done what God has asked of me.

Long story short, I am staying in Vancouver. Little more needs to be said!

With all that life was brought me, I called a few of my girlfriends up and asked if they wanted to come to the beach with Raegan and I, and bring their kids. We all meet at a mom's group and our kids are all best of friends. Nice to spend the day with three woman who have seen Raegan grow since she was just 5 months old, they knew her story, and they know what has gone on in Raegan and I's life these last 4 years. So this last Saturday we loaded up headed to breakfast and then off to Seaside, OR for the day. The weather was cold, and it drizzled for a little while, but we didn't let that stop us from enjoying the day. I decided that this trip to the beach was going to be a yearly thing that we all do, since we all had so much fun. 

 I love having such great friends, they are all a true blessing!

I know I have been MIA for the last couple weeks, but I life has kept be busy and I haven't had much time to blog. My Aunt and Uncle were in town, and so I spent a few days with them last week, which was very nice. I miss them so much, wish we lived closer.... even though I am moving to the same state as them here in a few short months, I will be further away from them. Good news is that with Raegan still coming back up here to see her dad, my aunt and uncle live half way, so it will be a good meeting point for the child swap if we drive and not fly.

Hopefully I will be able to get back to blogging and keeping up with my daily devotional here soon. I am thinking I will have time this weekend to do some blogging :) If not I will have time in a couple of weeks when I sit at the airport flying to SoCal to see my love. Oh it has been way to long since I have seem him. I miss him so much.

Alright, off so do house work, and send a couple of emails before bed.

Wedding Gift

My good friends Chuck & Danette got married last weekend and I wanted to give them a gift from the heart. I am always seeing creative ideas on Pinterest, and when I came across this idea I thought it would be perfect.

Here is what I made
