{chilly december days}

on cold, chilly december days, we love nothing more than go out and play.
my sweet girl would love nothing more than to spend the entire day outside.

she loves nothing better than to explore out in the great outdoors.
seeing the way these two adore each other makes my heart melt every day.
watching how he takes care of her makes me wish i had a big brother just like him.
i cannot wait to see what they will be like as they get older. i am excited to see how their relationship is going to blossom and grow.
in the meantime, i am going to just enjoy these fun, cold afternoons together.

{changes coming::something free for you}

there are going to be a few changes around this here blog come January, one of which is advertising. yes, i have decided to jump into wild world of blog advertising. i don't want to be all about money and followers, but rather a friendship, or partnership, between me and my potential advertiser.
i have compiled a list of things i did and did not like about advertising and i am slowly tweeking it so i can offer the best, fairest advertising perks as possible. and so for the month of january ( and maybe february too) i am offering free advertising, while i finish ironing out all the kinks.
so, if you like my blog, are interested in me promoting your shop/or blog, and  you like free things, then fill out this form.

{finding my focus}

Photo: My view as of late....sick and in bed...hate starting off December sick.
i've been sick for a week now...not the way i had planned to start off december. the first few days i was completely miserable and frustrated! instead of getting things done, i was stuffing my nose with kleenex. i was rendered useless. as laid in bed, covered in blankets and looking up at the cielingi started thinking. 
sometimes i let the busyness of life over take me and i get overwhelmed and lose focus. lately i feel like i've been flying by the seat of my pants. and if i'm truly honest with myself, i would  have to say that i've been flying by the seat of my pants for most of this year. and i think i've just been doing it for so long that i fell into that semi-comfortable place and accepted that that's just how things are going to be now. but in reality it is exhausting and makes life that much more difficult. i need to change things up and get back on track.
somewhere along the way i have lost my focus. I have let hurts and feelings get in the way and cloud my focus. i have hidden behind excuses and insecurities. i have allowed my shortcomings to derail me. it is not enough for me to just to read my bible and pray everyday. i need to keep my focus on God and the woman He has called me and enabled me to be. i am not going to focus on my past mistakes and failures. instead i am going to focus God and what He has for me today.
today is a new day and i am going to focus on that.

{i want to let you in on a little secret....}

Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please visit to get your own copy of Just Dance 4, today’s Gold Box Deal of the Day! I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.

i want to let you in on a little secret....
i love to dance!
ever since i was a little girl i dreamed bing a dancer. a child of the 80's , i grew up watching Fame. i wanted nothing more than than to move to new york so i could go that high school and became a famous dancer.
i loved dancing so much that whenever i went to my cousins house, we would spend the afternoon watching music videos and then after we had "learned" all the steps to the dances, we would preform them for my aunt. and my love for dance has never left since then.
i have never been a big fan of video games and such, but when i heard about the Just Dance games all that changed. i knew i had to get Just Dance 2, and so that Christmas, i took part of my bonus and bought a wii and Just Dance 2. i was a happy girl, dancing my little heart away. and then, when i saw that Just Dance 4 came out i knew i had to have it! i "hinted" tothe husband that i would be a very happy girl if i got it for Christmas.
if you haven't checked it out already you must! Just Dance 4 has some of the best mix of's got some new stuff with some classics (like barry white and that awesome song from diry dancing.) I'm telling you it's a must!  
so check it out and let me know what you think.
