blanksIt’s back!  Fill in the Blank Friday.  As always I link up with the blog: thelittlethingswedo

1.  When it comes to holiday shopping, I   do most of it .  I tell hubby what we are buying…see if he’s ok with it for his family and try to get a good deal on it. Usually I do pretty good, I think.  🙂
2.  A few things on my Chritmas wish list are… American Eagle gift certificate so I can get some new jeans, a gift for a family through World Vision and possibly a duvet for my bed.  Other than that not much.  It’s not about me…it’s about Little E and also the gifts I give others.  I’m ok with what I have….for I am soooo very blessed.
3.  An intangible gift I would like to receive is   a nice weekend away with my bestie.  Just the two of us….doing nothing…hanging out in a hotel and just relaxing.  That would be awesome.  I miss her lots.

4. A gift I would like to give this year is   a baby brother or sister for little E.  That would be so nice.  
5. My Christmas will be spent at my Sis & Bro in laws for a few days and then headed to my mom’s for a few days.  One day of boxing day sales and then back home.  Trying to keep it rather short as we have Florida planned in February.
6. My most favorite Christmas gift of all time was my kindle.  I love love love it.

7.  The best thing about the holidays is being around family.  And this year I have enjoyed watching Christmas movies.  I’m not a movie fan…but I’ve enjoyed having movie time with my fam jam.


I know I’ve said this before…but sometimes I take it for granted how blessed I am.  Sometimes I forget just for a second what my life was like 5 years ago.  Then I remember, especially on a day like today with the school shooting in Connecticut, how truly blessed I am….and I am so thankful.  So very thankful.

It’s back…FRIDAY!  And with Friday comes: “Fill in the Blanks Friday” which I lovingly link to the wonderful blog: The Little Things We do

1.  I like  quiet at the end of my night. Relaxing with the hubs (which is few and far between) warm summer nights, the beach and  TOBYMAC!
2.  A life goal of mine is  to complain less and enjoy things more instead of being stressed all the time.  It’s a hard life goal for me.
3.  The last thing you would ever expect me to like (even though I secretly do) is  country music…it’s growing on me. 🙂
4. Some wise words that I love are  “The longer you wait for something, the more you will appreciate it when you get it. Cause anything worth having, is definitely worth waiting for.”
5. Most mornings you will find me  surrounded by children.
6. Right now I am super into  Once Upon a Time…love that show! And of course, TobyMac’s new cd.  AWESOME!
7.  Right now I am super over  people who argue all the time or don’t listen.
Blessing: AWESOME day with my little Man today.

Fill in the blanks is late, I  know…but I was away this weekend so better late than never.  As usual I link up with the blog The Little Things We do.

1.  Something I swore I’d never do, but have ended up doing anyway is   the gangnam style dance.  Had to do it at Zumba once. UGH!
2.  Something I’ve always wanted to do is  go to Italy.
3.  Something I have absolutely no desire to ever do is   go on a cruise.  Nope….had to get off an island by traveling on a ferry for an hour and a half.  No desire to go on a cruise…even though I know it’s COMPLETELY different.
4. The best thing I ever did was   marry my hubby and then adopt Little E. Two best decisions of my life so far.
5. When it comes to trying new things, I am  very resistant.  I don’t like change.  I never thought I was like that, but the older I get the more and more I see it.  I try to change this unwanted change in me lol.
6. One thing I’ve never done is  drugs.  Saw the outcome of that stupid stuff on so many people I know and I have no desire EVER to do that.
7.  My favorite thing do do is  read a good book in a nice warm bed.  Which by the time I get to do that I only get to read one page and then I fall asleep.  🙂
Hope everybody is having a good weekend and staying dry!
Blessing:  Good reports at the doctor for Little E.  Great Blessing!
Prayer request:  Possibly starting down a new road someday in the future…..pray that God moves everything together in HIS way, not mine.

I’m a little late on this one this week….we just got back from the YMCA and got the kids to bed.  Nevertheless…here we go.

I link up with the blog The Little Things We do.  You should check it out!

1.  My favorite feeling in all the world is    the moment when you sink down into a full hot tub when you are enveloped in warmth on a cold night.
2.  My favorite smell is Autumn or the first smell of snow coming.
3.  My favorite taste is   the first candy cane of the season.
4. The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen was   a sunset on the beach on Grand Manan.  I’ll never forget it.
5. The best sound ever is  Little E’s laugh.  Not his annoying orange laugh….his from the belly laugh.
6. A smell that reminds me of my childhood is  sawdust.  Reminds me of my grandfather.  He was always working with it.
7.  My favorite of all the senses is  sense of sight….Love being able to see and read things.
Have a great weekend everybody!
Blessing:  I only worked half a day and was able to get groceries before company arrived.

It’s been a while..but it’s time to catch up on Fill in the Blank Fridays.  This idea originated from http://thelittlethingswedo.blogspot.com/

Here is mine for the week…even though it’s a date late.

1.  If I could  medal in an olympic event it would be: I would invent one for changing diapers.  I think I’m quite the pro at it.  Either that or sleeping.  🙂
2.  If I was stranded on a deserted island I’d take: my family and books.  If there was electricity I would take my laptop so I can keep on playing my facebook games  🙂
3.       Squirrels: are cute.
4.  I’d rather eat mushrooms (gross)  everyday,  than have towipe snot    everyday.
5.  I am  hoping to save up my money that I earn from selling Pampered Chef and take my family to Disney World within the next two years. (fingers crossed)
6.  I should really be  reading my book for my book review for my blog, but this is the first time I have sat down all day and I’m going to relax by doing some couponing 🙂.
7.  One of my favorite things in all the world is   walking along the Seal Cove sandbeach at sunset.  2nd best would be getting hugs from my little man.  Today he was at a birthday party and got up and came right over to give me a hug and then went back to eating.  Such a nice feeling!
Have a great rest of the weekend!!!  We’re snow covered here.  CRAZY!

Remember to check out the original blog for Fill in the Blank Fridays at The Little things we do

1.   My favorite place I’ve ever traveled to is   New York – more specifically Times Square.  It was so cool to see all the lights even at midnight and to go shopping then!

2.    Italy    is somewhere I’d love to go someday.

3.  I pass the time on a plane (or bus, or car ride or train) by   reading .

4.  My three must-haves when I travel are   my kindle, music and my pillow.
5.  My favorite travel companion is    my family  .
6.  The craziest thing that ever happened to me while traveling is    when we were in New York we were in the Bronx and we were walking under an overpass I thought I got shot.  Turns out it was just a pigeon that pooped on me.  I was pretty freaked out though and was crying.
7.  The most exotic food I’ve ever tried while traveling is  grits.  Haha yup…not much of a food taster 🙂

8.  If I could live anywhere else, I’d live   someplace warm 🙂

9.  I have been to    7  states in the U.S.

Hope you have had a great weekend!!!!
Blessing:  Watched my child worship in church today.  Was awesome!

It’s that time again.  I get my weekly fill in the blanks from the blog: The Little Things we Do (check it out!)

1.   The last thing I ate was     Zesty Cheese Crunchers (chips) .

2.   The last song I listened to was   One Elephant went out to play (By Sharon Lois & Bram)    .

3.  Using the letters in my name I can spell    {Laura} Al, a, url, aura  (haha there isn’t a whole lot)

4.  If I had to dress in one color for the rest of my life I would pick   Red…it’s bright and it makes people happy.
5.  If you were to look in my bag right now you’d find    a Pampered Chef catalog, gum, my wallet, Little E’s Wallet, nail file, lip balm, hand sanitizer, keys, glasses cleaner, wetnaps.
6.  When I finish filling in the blanks I’m going to    go to bed!  .
7.  My all time favorite song to dance to is  Anything by  TobyMac or Undignified..(that’s a fun song to dance to)
Haha this one was just a bunch of random stuff…but still fun!
PS.  My goal is to write more next week.  I had my first Pampered Chef show this week on Thursday so I have been overhauling with Pampered Chef info to the brain the last week 🙂
Blessing:  My husband had work today…AND we got oil in our tank!! (That’s a double blessing…kinda like a double cup at Tim Horton’s…..can you tell I want coffee!!)

Hey guys!

Sorry I’ve been slacking on my blog lately but it really feels that I have no time to do anything anymore.  Things have just been crazy lately…which I will share later on…but I wanted to do this quick post from Fill in the blank Fridays which I follow at Lauren’s Blog: The little things we do.

1.   The best way to spread Christmas cheer is     doing little things to brighten people’s day.  Also by putting a little bit of magic back into Christmas.

2.   The thing I love most about Christmas is   giving gifts, the smell of tape (haha I know I’m weird but I just think the smell of scotch tape reminds me of Christmas. I also love candy canes and Christmas music.
3.  The holiday season is a time for   being with family and celebrating Jesus’ birth.  Also seeing the magic of Christmas on the kids faces.
4. My favorite thing to eat at the holidays is  Turkey!!
5.  I will be spending Christmas    with hubby’s family and then on Christmas night heading to my mom’s to have a second Christmas on boxing day.  Then on the 27th we are heading to visit Little E’s biological family to spend Christmas with them. Then after that visiting with great friends.
6.  Tis better to (give or receive?)  Giving.  I love watching people unwrap the gifts I gave them.
7.  I’m dreaming of a    memorable     Christmas.
