just random thoughts!

Aw, I'm still here. I have not worked on any of the things I want to work on, but my mind is planning on getting motivated. I have so many things I want to start, and I just don't know which one to start. Any understand that?

I am getting ready to start a new Bible Study Wednesday and then we leave for a long weekend to Florida to visit with family which should be relaxing and entertaining at the same time. I have literally had no free time to hit the gym and my feet are killing me. I am putting off going to a podiatrist for sooo many reasons, but its getting bad and I am just going to have to make an appt!

I'm find so many new blogs and I will have to share some of them with you soon!

Sept Challenge

I read a blog about a Sept spending challenge and I will participate. The idea is you spend the next 2 weeks organize and planning and as of Sept you try as long as you can not to purchase anything. Now there are some things you are allowed to purchase such as

gas for car
fresh veggies
meds or things of emergent nature
planned activities such as church function, preschool payment or weekly childcare

You can also buy things if you plan your coupons and sales so they are free!

So I will be stocking up with coupons and planning, and will see if I can make it a week or 2 without non necessary shopping! Anyone else want to try?

Back to blogging

I'm back. I miss blogging. I spend way too much time on facebook, don't you? Between frontierville an keeping up with friends, I just spend more time on social things and not the things I want to focus on!
I'm mentally struggling with a lot of things and if you have been a reader of my blog then you have read a lot of this before!
1) I could be a better mom. I love my job as a mom. I could do better. We all can. I am whining or going into some deep depression, just wish I could do more!

2) and these are in no order what so whatever. I could be serving God a lot more. I could be giving more. I want my daughter to see my giving and I want to be an example. But I am not. That has to change

3) I'm tired of being a fatty. You have heard that before. Plump, fluffy, there are many words but I am just FAT! Another example I don't want my daughter to see. I joined a gym again so lets how this goes. I know how to exercise. I know unhealthy foods. Now what to do hmmmmm.

4) Struggling with lifestyle. Keeping a clean house, getting organized, loving my pediatric nurse job

Now with that being said,
I love my life. I love my husband. I love my sweet girl who is blossoming every day and coming up with new words and new ideas. Our new funny phrase is You've got to fight for your right to Party! She is too cute!!!

So hopefully I will begin to blog again about whats in my head and hopefully some of you can hold me accountable!!

If you are reading this, come back tomorrow for a book review and a kindle giveaway by the publisher!!

Let me know that you have come by and if you have been a reader before and if you have a blog

Im still here

Havent posted here or facebook lately.
Still working on weight loss. I see a pattern. I did great my first month, dropped 20 pounds and then I had a bad day that turned into a bad week and well you see where this is going. Every time I diet, I hit 20-25 pounds and this is the end of the healthy dieting. Ugh Hoping for better updates soon.

But I will say, low carb dieting does work!!

I will get there!

A Distant Melody Book revie

Below is some info the publishing gave me. I am so thankful to be given the opportunity to read and review some of the best Christian Fiction out there. I am pretty late with my review so I apologize.

A Distant Melody is a great read with awesome dialogue among characters and a creative story line. I will be honest. Historical fiction is not my favorite but you have to read this. She takes you right back to WW2. I cant wait to read more Sarah Sundin!! Shes being added to my list of favorite authors and this is only the first book of hers that I have read.

This book has a great story line, the main character has to be make a big choice. I am not spoiling it for you but if you want other reviews you need to go visit others on the blog tour!



Never pretty enough to please her gorgeous mother, Allie will do anything to gain her approval--even marry a man she doesn't love.

Lt. Walter Novak--fearless in the cockpit but hopeless with women--takes his last furlough at home in California before being shipped overseas. Walt and Allie meet at a wedding and their love of music draws them together, prompting them to begin a correspondence that will change their lives.

As letters fly between Walt's muddy bomber base in England and Allie's mansion in an orange grove, their friendship binds them together. But can they untangle the secrets, commitments, and expectations that keep them apart?

A Distant Melody is the first book in the WINGS OF GLORY series, which follows the three Novak brothers, B-17 bomber pilots with the US Eighth Air Force stationed in England during World War II.


Sarah Sundin is an on-call hospital pharmacist and holds a BS in chemistry from UCLA and a doctorate in pharmacy from UC San Francisco. Her great-uncle flew with the US Eighth Air Force in England during WWII. Sarah lives in California with her husband and three children. This is her first novel.
