Time for a fresh start. I took a LONG hiatus from blogging. I was never that consistent with it anyways. But I had a few people request I start back up. And to be honest I didn't mind the accountability. So here we go! Disclaimer- If your new around here. I'm a terrible writer. I tend to never use proper grammar. I have no concept of when paragraphs should start or end. I ramble.  A LOT.  And my thoughts are often all over the place. SQUIRREL.  I think the first real post will be all about our master bedroom re do. Including a ship lap wall. Did someone say Chipper and Jojo??? #shiplap #shiplap #shiplap 

Its also time to get back to being healthy. So I recently today re joined Weight Watchers. And I'm honestly looking forward to it. 

So here we go. To Blogging and March.

I'm back!

Hey y'all! 

Its always so hard to keep up with this regardless of how hard I try! But I have embarked on a new journey and I want to share it with every single person ever. 

Essential Oils. 

Young Living Essential Oils to be exact.

To say we are blessed with these has been an understatement. In numerous ways. I have followed blog after blog with people using these oils and raving and raving over how amazing they are! However with anything I was skeptical. 

I plan to do post going forward a day that shows how to use the oils out of the every day kit. And how we use it in our home.

Somehow I just turned 30. 

How did that happen? 

I'm still figuring out how it happened. But it did. And I thought a "what I've learned in my 30 years" post would be best....

1. Love yourself. If you don't no one else will. Or not the way you want to be loved. 

2. Work hard. And then work harder.

3. True Love is real. I'm lucky to have it. 

4. Dogs make the world better. 

5. Find yourself. Go back to #1. 

6. Tomorrow isn't promised. Neither is the rest of today. 

7. Only allow people who care in your life. 

8. Don't follow. Everyone appreciates a leader. 

9. Chocolate is a cure all. 

10. So is the radio full blasted with the windows down. 

11. Don't be Afriad to ask for help. Life's overwhelming. Kids are overwhelming. 

12. It's ok to be tired. 

13. Your friends are just as important as family. Your core group of friends are family. 

14. Time alone with your husband is precious. 

15. Coffee cures most things. 

16. School is important. 

17. Do what you do. 

18. Give thoughtful gifts. People appreciate it when you spend the same amount of time on them.

19. What do you do with CDs? I can't part with them.

20. Babies are the best part of you. 

21. Learn to cook using what's in your house. Aka make food from scratch. 

22. Plant a garden. 

23. Sometimes life forces you into situations you have no control over. Handle it with grace. 

24. You can't change people. And you shouldn't. 

25. Surround yourself with people who make YOU happy. 

26. Watch old movies with your girlfriends. It takes you back to carefree days of your youth. 

27. Being a parent is a selfless act. It takes constant work and your always growing.

28. Use sunscreen. Your not getting any younger.

29. Never stop flirting or dating your partner. 

30. Lastly, the past 30 years have taught me a tremendous amount about being a woman, wife, mother, friend and daughter. I'm still learning and I'm sure the best is yet to come.

I. Don't care.

I get so tired of watching what I eat I could scream. 

I don't care that it's bad for me. 

I get so sick of hearing about weight loss. 

I don't care that you lost 1 lb or gained 10. 

I get so frustrated by my lack of caring. That I just don't care anymore. 

I. Don't. Care. 

I get so tired of being consumed by food. 

I'm sick of the battle or constant Talks and not changing 1 single thing. 

It defines me.  As a failure. And fail is something I refuse to allow. 

That statement boldly indicates I care. 

The last 3 years have drastically changed me. Not for the better most days. More often then not I go to call him and can hardly breathe let alone think about food. 3 years seem like a lifetime. But it isn't. I miss my Dad every single day. I'm letting it define me. I've become hard, cold and quite frankly I don't care. People in your life other then those drastically affected move on with their lives. Naturally. I feel like they forget. And sadly don't care. Intentionally or not. 

I don't know how to fix it. I don't know how to start caring. I don't know how to keep moving ahead. I know it's time. For my health, my babies, my amazing husband and my dear friends.

Chicken coop part 2!

Next up the nesting boxes. Again all reclaimed lumber. 

Back window in! My littlest chic all ready to go! 

Looks like I missed a few pics of the plywood going up! Chicken door! 

Using up left over outdoor paint. Again at $49.00. 

Ok. No way was I going to let this huge green coop go un decorated. So we added more decking boards to the whole outside to make it more charming and less sore thumb. 

And we already had the dog run from a job someone wanted removed! Works perfectly! 

And meet my girls at 6 days old!! They are soooooo big now!!!! 

They got some fresh air on Tuesday! 

We have the tin roof left which we hope to do on Sunday! Because the ladies are ready to go to there new home!!!
