Let's Try this Again!

Wow!  Where has the time gone?  So much has changed in the 3 years since I have last posted a blog. As I sit to right this blog, I wondered what happened? Why did I stop blogging? Well, Life Happened, that's what.  I've never been really good about being consistent with just one thing.  First, Myspace, then Facebook, Blogger, Twitter, Instagram and so on....  I guess the one thing I have kept up with is Facebook.  
 So,  the short story catch up since I've been gone - I am still a Single mom of two wonderful Amazing kids!  Mr. K is now 7 years old, in 1st Grade and plays Football.  He loves Lego, TV and annoying his sister.  Ms. B is now 6 years, in 1st Grade and a Cheerleader.  She is loud, sassy, loves Stuffed Animals and loves with all her heart.

Me?  Well thats a whole different story!  Somewhere in the mix I've stopped worrying about me. Guess that's the issue with most Moms. At least the Moms I know.  I've been so focused raising my babies, and attempting to give them a wonderful life that I forgot to take care of myself.  
 My hope for this blog moving forward is document my new journey with VistaLife and weightloss.   I've written out my Day 1 Journal that lays out the harsh truth of what 30 years of not so great decisions will do to your body.  I haven't had the heart to publish it just yet.  It's very honest, so honest it hurts!   It's scares the living out of me!  But the truth hurts.

 I hope by blogging my journey, struggles and hopefully successes that I might be able to help at least 1 woman!  That's the ultimate goal, help at least 1 woman.  My goal is that blogging with help hold myself more accountable for my decisions.  So, bare with me.  I've never been a writer (math was always my subject).    

Verse of the Day:
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight."  Proverbs 3:5-6

Made with Love -P52 Week 2

*Made with Love*
{Kolton Lane & Brynlee Marie}

When someone mentions Love my first thought turns to these two!
I am so blessed to be called their Mom.
I love that they love each other so much, I know there will be a day that won't be as close as they are now, but no doubt they will always Love each other as much as they do now!

Happy 4th Birthday Kolton Lane

Four Years Ago (yesterday, yes I know I am late with post but we were busy.)God chose me to be the mother of a beautiful handsome Baby boy! He changed my life forever, in just a matter of hours. I was 24 years old and newly single. I really had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, I was just having fun. On January 20, 2009 I got a call from a close friend's mother. That call forever changed my world and how I saw things.

Kolton's biological "mother" had tested positive for Meth during delivery, as well as Kolton. CPS immediately removed him from her care and he was sent home from the hospital a healthy thriving little boy. His Grandmother was named his primary caregiver for the time being, along with his 3 year old big brother, Cam. His Granny, as we call her, quickly realized she was unable to care for a newborn & a 3 year old. That's where I came in. After a quick phone call Granny was on her way to my house to discuss some things. I had no idea things were about to change forever.

After a lot of discussion with Granny, talks with My mom & sisters, and a lot of praying I decided I would become Kolton's primary caregiver. In a matter of minutes, I can became a mother to a 3 week old little boy. In a few short hours and a lot of help from Family & Friends. My little man had a complete nursery and closet full of clothes.

I truly believe God Chose Me to be his Mother and I am forever grateful for the confidence he had in me. I am more blessed than I could have ever imagined.

To My Amazing, Handsome, Often Stubborn Son,
As we get ready to Celebrate your 4th Birthday with Friends and Family on Saturday, I look back on the last 4 years and how you have made my life complete. I amazed Daily as you grow and continue to learn. I love how curious about life you are. I love that you are a Great Big Brother and that you are always Protecting & loving your sister, when you aren't driving her crazy. I love that you remember to say "Please and Thank you" most of the time. I love your imagination and that you love Trucks. You stole my heart from the moment I held you in my arms. I look forward to all the milestones you have ahead of you. I'll always be right there to hold your hand when are scared, kiss your boo-boo's when you get hurt and give you a little shove when you are nervous. Most of all I will love you with everything I have for as long as I live! Happy 4th Birthday Kolton Lane!

New Year. New Me!

Wow, I can't believe its been over a year since my last blog! A lot has changed in the last year. We have been busy, a couple Vacations, couple Birthdays, potty training and a few sick trips to the ER. All and all I would say 2011 has been a great year!

Mr. K, my handsome very independent almost 4 year old, has grown up a lot but still loves his mommy!

Ms. B, my beautiful stubborn little 2 year old diva, has really gained her own personality. She is very outspoken and has a temper. She loves her brother to the moon and back, but that doesn't stop her from the occasional hit here and there.

As for me. I am now 28 years old and loving life. Finally getting back to the things I really love. My photography and my crafting! Plus, I plan on Blogging at least once a week. Mostly Photography, as I took a 52 Week Photography Challenge! So hopefully the new year brings lots of new Experiences! Until then, hope you have a Very Safe and fun Filled New Year! See ya in 2012 :)
