Blogging for books

I received Love Food and Live Well: Lose Weight, Get Fit, and Taste Life at Its Very Best by Chantel Hobbs from Bloggingforbooks.com and fell in love. Chantel has the ability to make it feel as if she is personally sitting next to you telling you her story as you read her book. She has lost an amazing 200lbs. and keeps it off. She makes it quite known that she owes all her success to the lord.   She also gives up great exercises to do and a great food plan. I cannot wait until I have this baby so I can put some of her ideas to work in my life.

Philippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me......

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”.

Whats for dinner?

I really wish I could claim all the great ideas I post on my blog,from cooking to homeschooling,almost all of it comes from great blogger friends who have made my life alot easier =)
This recipe I give all the credit to Tricia from Once A Month Mom.Here is the link for this great recipe Chicken Cobbler Casserole.My whole family loved it! You should try it, then send her a comment =)

Welcome Aboard!!

Back on November 27th I was suspicious about being preggo again.So of course I run to Walgreens to purchase an overly priced pregnancy test.Get home to do one of the things I hate to do most,pee on a stick.Why do they make it so small,where you almost hit your hands every time?Anyways, after all of that I have to wait 2min. to find out the results,UGGHHH!!!!,


What??????? I had all the signs,sleepy,cranky,flue like symptoms,tender areas ;-)NO PERIOD.

I didn't understand.Something was wrong I thought.Three days later here it comes,not the usual though.Whatever I just noted it in my book.

So here we are over a month later and no period again!So I run to Walgreens AGAIN.This time I bought 2 tests for the price of one.YEAH!! Made me feel a little better.Until I remembered what I had to do with them.:-( Not my favorite part remember?

So I tried not to hit my hand this time........phew,missed. I didn't have to wait that long for the results,this time though I took the 2nd one the next day to make sure it was POSITIVE!!!!

Yeah we are having baby #5. I am just going to have to wait to have the Dr. tell me if I am 5wks or 10wks.Oh well as long as everything goes well.I guess I will be having a lot to blog about this year =)What a great New Years present!!!
