Tuesday Blog Hop

Busy Mom's Tips Tuesday Blog Hop

Won't you join along?

Have you ever?!?!?!?!?

One of the other blogs I follow is a Fibromyalgia blog. Deb wrote this post, I edited it a bit to fit me, but I think it helps put perspective on this silent disease...

Have you ever ....
Heard of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

Had to ask a loved one not to hug you?

Slept an hour and a half, then awake the rest of the night?

Had to get out of bed because you were so stiff and sore?

Been so physically exhausted that you couldn't be on your feet long enough to shower?

Had your head throbbing and aching all day long?

Had excessive migraines headaches?

Felt like your neck was in pain could no longer hold up your head?

Had your arms and legs tingle and loose feeling?

Had your body ache continuously?

Felt like you had a sunburn on your skin .... but you don't?

Had shooting pains??

Stumbled or fell because you couldn't pick your leg up from total exhaustion?

Experienced Restless Leg Syndrome?

Felt like you had bugs crawling on you ... commonly called "The Creepy Crawlies?"

Had muscles that feel like ropes in your body?

Been out of control with your cognitive function?

Had depression or an anxiety attack?

Had everyone around you look at you like you are crazy because you "LOOK FINE", but really you feel absolutely miserable?

Welcome to my world... Have a great Tuesday!

God Bless,

Such a beautiful day

I am busy finishing the shirts for my contest winners, listening to my girls tell me about all the things they think we should be doing.

I had every intention on heading to church this morning, however my kiddos slept in and I didn't set the alarm.

We have family in from Tennessee today I miss them so much when they aren't here my beautiful cousin turns 18 today. Where has the time gone?

What are your memorial day weekend plans? I'm thinking tomorrow will be a cleaning day... I have sooooooo much to get done before my husband gets home. I am so excited for his return. Mommy needs a hug.

In addition to my winners I will be posting their shirts soon, but you can get yours too!!! I will be opening my shop soon. Your choice of colors and sizes etc. Stay tuned for more information.

God Bless,

Trying something new

In order to gain some revenue with my blog and bring some additional funds into our home, I am looking to do some advertising and what not, so without further ado:

Business 2 Blogger

I am hoping that we can get somewhere. Eventually I am hoping that this leads to me being able to work from home with my kiddos by my side...

There is also a button on my blog if you so desire to review.

God Bless!

So much has been going on...

Good Sunday morning!!!! I am so thankful the sun has risen for yet another glorious day.

I have been extreme couponing and it has been so much fun. I should be running to the store to get my papers now... All of my kiddos are asleep still which rarely happens, but they finished another year of dance with their recital last night. I will post video later. Anyway back to couponing...I have been without my computer for some time now, soooo blogging from my phone is about it.

I'm am slowly growing my stockpile. Here are a few tips I have learned...

First and foremost, STAY ORGANIZED!

Know your stores couponing policy

And coupon responsibly

Here is an example of my latest trip:
(my store only allows 3 like coupons per transaction)

3- ready feed Similac formulas
3- infant cereal
3- worstershire sauce
2- pkg of pork chops
Bag of rolls
Bag of ore-ida french fries
9- boxes of Green Giant frozen veggies
2- pkg of jello refrigerated snacks
2- boxes of Quaker Oatmeal Squares
Gallon of milk and finally,
4- pure protein bars

Total before coupons after loyalty card: $ 67.59 ...... &..... After coupons $ 19.08

Do you extreme coupon???? If so, what are some of your deals you have found?


God bless,

Today is one of "THOSE" days

As I have posted minimally on here before I am a Fibromyalgia sufferer. It is one of those terrible diseases. I say that relatively as Fibro as with many other diseases are silent. From the outside I look like a normal 27 year old woman, however inside I am aching and hurting beyond the ability to describe. My body hurts so bad all over, but if you were to see me you would never know.

Today is the first day in a loooooonnnnngggg time that I have felt this bad! I have so much to do the next few days I really don't know how I am going to get it done with all of this pain and exhaustion. I thought that my new medicine was finally working, BOY WAS I WRONG!

I have the big organizational haul this weekend along with several mothers day festivities as well. I am looking forward to spending the day with my girlies!

I am coming up on my 150th post. At that time I am hoping to have enough followers to host a awesome giveaway, so invite your friends over. I am getting to know several of my followers quite well by reading their journeys as well.

Spring Cleaning;Organization and Purge-a-thon 2011

The time has come, I am absolutely OVERWHELMED by all the clutter, all the mess and all the STUFF that 7 people have or have aquired. I have planned to do nothing but clean, organize, purge, etc. this weekend. I am getting rid of the clutter I am starting anew. Below are some photos that remind me of our basement and my master closet... I think I might be embarresed to post actual photos. :) I have located these randomly via google search.

These are my semi inspirations. I am planning a MAJOR overhaul!


These are just inspirations, but I have got to declutter my self. I think these small steps will allow for this to be a lot happier momma!

What have you done for Spring Cleaning this year?
