I look at it a lot......I wonder if I'm ready. I wonder if my husband is ready. I wonder if we'll ever REALLY be ready. But, mostly...I PRAY. As a very good friend said "Just start getting on your knees….because the Lord will give you peace. Peace that you are ready, peace to know you will never be FULLY ready to raise another human being….but trusting in Him that He knows your ready, peace followed by being humbled that the Lord feels you're ready, peace that your marriage relationship is ready, peace about money….He will give you this peace that you will know for sure."
Thanks girl...best advice ever.

Extras that I would like to do - but not a biggie:

There you have it - my baby bucket list. What's on yours?
So I know this officially makes me one of "those" people who is CRAZY about their dog - and I'm ok with that! I'm sure once I have kids, everything will be about the kiddo too! Gotta say, Stevie is the best dog E-V-E-R!
She loves her sister Cadence!
She loves her daddy .... and he loves her back!
Yes... she IS a Cowboys fan!
She loves her friends......
Even cats! (Seriously...how cute of a puppy was she?!)
She loves her mama!
Sometimes she causes trouble..... but how can you punish a kid with that SWEET face???
So.... I'm teaching my course at the junior college this morning, thinking I'm doing a GREAT job with this lecture and then I see this: A student totally asleep during my lecture!! I've struggled to stay awake in class before - especially the early morning ones - so I didn't wake the student up. I just let him miss the info I was giving out! I'm thinking that it was a one time thing.... I did lecture on psychological research (yuck) today, so I'm chalking the sleeping thing up to that.
Hopefully the next lecture will be more exciting!!
It's in Rockwall by Best Buy and JC Penny- in that shopping center. I'll definitely be going back there!! Way cute work clothes!!!
Oh... and miss T needed these:
Then we picked up the boys and ate at On the Border - it was SO fun! Clint, Kameron, Tiffany, Chris, TC, Mama Kay, Trey & I laughed all night!! We must do this again - soon!
Sunday morning was filled with awesome worship and a great message at church followed up with a cat nap. Then, me, Clint and the Rairdon's went and saw the movie "Season of the Witch" it was good, not what I expected.
2. Tresemme heat protecting leave in conditioner - I spray this stuff on so heavy before I blow dry every morning!! If Stevie is in the bathroom while I'm getting ready, she'll leave sneezing because I spray so much. Amazing stuff!
3. My husband bought me a heated throw blanket for Christmas - I keep it on the couch. I love cuddling under it! And, my mom bought me one for my bed! Major plus - I have one on my bed AND one on the couch - I'm so cold natured, I love love love these!
I did it! Today was my first day teaching at the local junior college! I'm currently teaching two different sections of an Introduction to Psychology course.
Today we went over the syllabus and did introductions - pretty easy! We'll see how things go once I start doing lectures! Yikes!
As for the cold/flu bug - the hubby and I are feeling much better!! If my registration would just speed along for my licensed professional counselor examination, things would be even better!
I am against making New Year's Resolutions. It seems that I am always setting myself up to fail. So, I didn't make ANY this year! I have a few goals to work on - some are personal, but I think some are worth sharing.
I just finished reading "Radical" by David Platt - AMAZING, challenging book!
Over the next year.... I am accepting the challege to pray for the entire world, to read through the entire Word, to sacrifice my money for a specific purpose, to spend time in another context, and I commit my life to a multiplying community.
This weekend flew by! Saturday, Clint and I did pretty much nothing - we were still recovering from our bad cold (maybe flu? still not sure). Today was a much more productive day - started out at church followed up by a F.I.T. Party! F.I.T. (Faith in Training) is an awesome ministry at my church The Fellowship at First Baptist Royse City. For $15 a month, you can attend as many workout classes as you choose! Monday mornings & evenings, Tuesday mornings & evenings, and Thursday mornings and evenings!! What a bargain! Today we had a party/assessment.
Here are my current stats:
Weight: 130 lbs.
Push ups: Modified, 10
Sit ups in 1 minute: 21
Walk/Jog 1 mile: 14.27 minutes
I am NOT doing this to lose weight - just to be in shape and healthy!
I feel so amazing and encouraged after meeting with my FIT class! We close with prayer requests/praises and a group prayer.
Sick time at my house! I woke up Tuesday with a scratchy throat, and my husband said "Yeah, my throat has been scratchy for a few days now." Hellllloooo.. why didn't you tell me that sooner? I would have been scarfing down vitamin C and staying away! I went to work Tuesday, with just an icky feeling. But called in sick and stayed on the couch yesterday. Today, I'm working half a day while Mr. Husband is home sick on the couch.
Saturday night Clint and I went to his mom's surprise birthday party. His aunt and uncle took her to dinner at Red Lobster while we all decorated the house and waited..... about 45 minutes later, she came home to her birthday surprise! It was a success!

Clint "took off his thumb" all night - the kids loved his trick and kept asking if he was magic!
