Family is such a great thing!

Good morning lovelies! How is everyone on this beautiful day? I am running on zero sleep and a bowl of rice crispies and feelin' fabulous!!! Last night was a very restless is a very big day for J and I guess I couldn't stop thinking about it and praying for him. J has a full day of interviews!! We are very excited about this and I would really appreciate if you kept him in your prayers. Its been a struggle since we moved finding work and this would be a great opportunity for him!

Yesterday was an awesome day as well. J and I went to see my grandfather before he heads back to his "summer" home! He's my little Goose....:) Heading south for the cold, wintry months and then back north for the summer! It has been such a blessing to be close to him and being able to visit. It has really brought us closer together and helped us form a special bond. I don't know what I'd do without that man!!!

I'll leave you with a story, in honor of Earth Day....about the little plant that could! So I have this is nothing extravagant, its just a small little clover plant. My mom got a part of the plant from my grandmother and then once it grew big enough, she split the plant and started growing me one of my own.

Now let me tell you, I don't have the best of reputations with plants. My thumb is purple.....very far from being green. While living in KY I did my best to take care of the innocent plant, but not really paying it much attention. On my move down, I made sure to carefully transport the plant to not cause much stress.....but let me tell you! My little budding bundle of joy did not like it one bit, and got very angry with me.

Slowly, one bye one, my clover plant began to lose leaf-by-leaf....

until there was none.....
These aren't my actual plant, but I was so devastated by the situation I couldn't bring myself to take pictures of my seedling's slow death... :(

After a little research, counseling, and tender love and care, I have become the mother of a full-grown sassy sprout!! I don't know why, but I love this plant. Sounds a little crazy, but I get a kick out of waking up every morning and visiting her out on the back porch, having a little conversation and counting the clovers and baby sprouts!

And for the first time ever, its starting to grow tiny little white flowers. I'm sooo excited! Ha Ha....the littlest things make me happy :)

So I'm headed out to wait on my prince's return. Hopefully things have gone well and I will have good news to report soon! Have a great day and I hope the sun's shining where you are! Have a great Earth Day!

P.S. What are your feelings on the new phenomena of Twitter?? I'm lost. I don't get it.


  1. Good luck to J for his interviews!!! I know how difficult unemployment can be, for sure...Mr. Smith and I have been here in Bloomington for almost 8 months and he is still unemployed. It is hard! the plant. Adorable.

    And...hate Twitter. I am SO not into it, even though I have a Twitter account! I update it once every 2 weeks or so, just out of boredom!

  2. good luck J! I hope all goes well!

  3. Good luck to J. I will be praying for good results. Also, about Twitter I just signed up yesterday out of curiousity but I'm not entirely convinced yet.

  4. I haver a Twitter account, but I update it in phases. I will often go days without posting. It's still fun though!
