Why not?

I recently discovered Pinterest. I'm an addict, at least I'll admit it! On this site you can search through all types of categories (fashion, home, crafts, etc) and you basically save what you like in whatever category you want to make. Examples: I have "All Things Fashion", "All Things Kids", "All Things Home", and etc. I started to make one more category, the name was going to be...

"Things I love, but would never do."

But, why not? If I love it, why not do it? Now, I'm not talking about anything extreme. I'm talking finger nail polish, a fancy pair of shoes, little things like that. So, why not? Fear of someone judging me for painting my nails in a shade other than pink or nude? Fear of someone wrongly assuming things about me because I like the appearance of high heels? Fear of falling in the high heels (okay, maybe that is legit...)Needless to say, I didn't create that category. I'm going to challenge myself - do things I love, but would never do. That's the perfect place to start, in the journey to be more than just a wife and mom, but to be me. God made me who I am, he knows my quirks, He knows my heart. Nail polish doesn't change who I am, I don't know why there is fear in that.

So, why not? I'm glad I asked myself that this morning.

Family Update.

I haven't been around, sorry about that. I didn't have much to say, so I figured I'd just wait until I did. I honestly still don't have anything important to say, other than a little update for those who are "out of the loop".

Chris is now a full time student. Yep, it's true! He's also working, very hard, for the school's security. So, the ball is rolling, things still feel like an uphill battle, but at least we're on the right road!

I'm seeking employment. Night work, to be more exact; either that or childcare/preschool work. Anything that continues to allow me to be a stay at home mother - something we both feel very strong about.

Kayleigh, oh Kayleigh. What a spunky little thing! Well, it took all summer, but yesterday she finally wanted to "swim" all by herself! I wonder if she'll be excited for it next summer, or if we'll have to work on it again? She's so funny. The things three year old's say never cease to amaze me!

Matthew is so big! He's pulling himself up on everything, and starting to cruise the couch. Wasn't he JUST born? He's a sweetie though, such a cuddle bug!

Well, there it is! Told ya it wasn't much. I've tried a few times, and it won't let me post pictures right now, but hopefully I'll have something interesting to say soon!

Take care, ya'll!
