Better than Rum and Gunpowder...

Gasparilla 2013 was a blast filled with sun, family, and pirates! KQAR had a beauty this year was back in action throwing "booty" to all the parade goers! Best Gasparilla yet because we were all together in a weird way. Mom was in the parade, Adam, Dad, Michael, Carli and me were at the tent, and Matthew worked the tent. Ready for 2014 already!

God is Amazing!

be still 3

Last week He was there for me and showed me His sense of humor.  A friend prayed this scripture over me on Wednesday AM. Her timing was God’s timing for sure! I needed it by 5:30 that night as I said it over and over again to keep it together.  The next morning it was the scripture in Adam and I’s devotional.  On Thursday when I opened my YouVersion app to read my morning scriptures I bet you could guess what the scripture of the day was.  Oh yep that scripture again.  He knows my heart and knows where I am right now.   I will forever praise him for His love and understanding of my shortcomings. 

Many Blessings *LRW*

I went to write a post this afternoon and found this saved to our desktop!  Thankful November got in the way of living so it never got completed, but here were my last few I got done. 


12. I am thankful that my Dad and brothers have welcomed my husband into their lives and treat him like he has always been a part of the family.  They don’t hold back on picking on him and Adam gives it right back.  DSC_0112

13. Adam has some really influential men in his life I am thankful for!  His Daddy, big brother, Devin, and his Papa.  I never knew his Grandfather Mr. Elliot but if he was anything like Mr. Pug  (Adam’s Dad) I can peg him as a good one!  They are strong men with compassionate hearts, great work ethic but also love to put family and fun first when ever possible.  Thanks for being a wonderful example for my man!

14. This guy and his love for children!  He would do anything for this little one who healed and stole our heart four years ago.  He wants to hold them and kiss them and talk baby talk to them.  It melts my heart and excites me thinking about what an amazing father he will be one day. 


This is as far as I got with a few images uploaded for the rest….haha

NYE in Nola

Adam and I welcomed the new year in New Orleans this year! What an adventure Nola was. We saw it all and tried to eat it all. We did Bourbon Street for a hurricane from Pat O's, a carriage tour, beignets at Cafe Du Monde, lunch at the Manning's restaurant, gambled at Harrah's, brunched at Brennan's, ate pralines (we managed to get a few home), even got a shoe shine from a true New Orleaner (well we didn't ask for this one), cheered on our struggling Gators, and ate some fine New Orleans food. It was a perfect get away for my man and I!!
