Place in this world...

The wind is moving
But I am standing still
A life of pages
Waiting to be filled
A heart that's hopeful
A head that's full of dreams
But this becoming
Is harder than it seems
Feels like

I'm Looking for a reason
Roaming through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
Not a lot to lean on
I need Your light to help me find
My place in this world
My place in this world

If there are millions
Down on their knees
Among the many
Can you still hear me
Hear me asking
Where do I belong
Is there a vision
That I can call my own
Show me

I'm Looking for a reason
Roaming through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
Not a lot to lean on
I need Your light to help me find
My place in this world
My place in this world

I absolutely love this song.... I have been thinking about it a lot as I've been searching for my own place in this world.
 I mean- I know I am supposed to be where I am. With the husband that I have, my children... even my dog!
That is my place.
 But I know there is more to enhance this experience we call life. Which is why this yr, my life is taking so many twists and turns. And while they may be difficult and scary and hard, they are supposed to be part of my world. Yesterday in the mail, I got this:

So.. it's really happening!!! By mid July, I will once again be a college freshman! Only 14yrs later! And I'll be enhancing our financial future (well not by much) and my way of life.

I also got a all this morning from Bobbie at Vanderbilt Weight Loss saying that all my requirements have been faxed off now to my insurance and they have 15 days to respond.
So by mid July, I will have a date of when I'll be physically changing my life.

But the one thing that will never change is my heart. The love I have for family. For others. And increase the love I have for myself. And hopefully won't change the love others have for me. And now... I will never forget!

I found a new obsession!!!

I hosted my first Thirty-One party not too long ago and completely fell in love!!!
What is Thirty-One?

After my party, I realized I just couldn't get enough. Of course we all know my bag obsession! But what really drew me to this company is the bags aren't only super cute but they are SO roomy, extremely durable, easy to clean and you can personalize them!!

So I decided... why not join them?!?!?! So here I am.

I swore after selling Tastefully Simple for several years that I would never do direct sales again.  So for me, this says a lot because for one- I'm cheap!  And two- I hate being pressured and to pressure.  But for me, these bags are perfect for everyday use and for organization!! 

So check them out!!!
You can always shop under any party I have going on (those won't charge or ship until the party closes), or just shop on your own.  Or email me and I'll hook you up!!

Oh did I mention that when I hosted my party, I got $90 in free stuff, 2 items half off AND an exclusive item for a huge discount??? 

I got this rolling thermal and I LOVE it!!
And my party was online so I hardly had to do anything!  So for now, I'm only doing online parties with my hosts.

Every month, they have a cool special going on.  This is this months:

PS: I just bought Reese this thermal with his name on it because I'm tired of him loosing his lunch bags!! Rielly will be getting one to next month since it'll be on special and they both are getting backpacks with their names on them! I'm excited!!

And I am ready to go somewhere!

Typically I hate change. I avoid it however and whenever I can. Until lately.
I'm embracing change. Realizing that no matter what, the ONLY THING constant is change!

So this year I will be changing.

Changing my diet and my weight because I am going to be having gastric bypass surgery. You can keep up with that at

Changing my routing since I will be going back to school to begin my several year journey towards getting a teaching degree.

Changing our vacation norm since we are taking the kids on a cruise with us next month rather than going along.

Changing.. well hell I don't have much left to change so maybe I'll change my hair color, get some new jewelry, definately smaller clothes, etc... but the above two will change my life completely!

So CHANGE... here I come! I should say we because these will affect my family. So CHANGE... here WE come!
