I want to go home.

I want to go home, wherever that is. 
I know that my home is where my Hubs is, but what about the actual structure of a home? 

I want that. 
Living with Jacob's brother could be waay harder. And I'm so grateful he's allowed us into his home.
Even though we are here and being diligent in our savings, we are always broke and in someone else's home. I feel like we are on a very long holiday with Jacob's brother, and we forgot to go home.  

Jacob and I have been working so hard on getting our finances "in order" to buy our first home. 
But the progress is moving so slow, it's killing me! 

We don't want a big, new, shiny house. We just want one that is "ours". 

--------I hope it will include a baby... someday (sigh).---------
But for now, I will just have a couple of dreams and focus on what's right in front of us. 

Luke 8:15 “… As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience."

Suck it, Cigarettes! I Quit You!

I know I have never said as much, but I smoke. No, I did smoke. 
Not anymore. 
I quit for the first time yesterday. 

I wanted to tell the "blogosphere" so I would be held accountable. 

I know how nasty smoking is, so please don't pass judgement. 
I'm genuinely quitting. 

I'm not much for doing something "halfway"

Here are some reasons I want to quit:
1) I want babies. And I REFUSE to be a smoking mother. 
2) I promised many people that I would quit, I need to fulfill those promises. 
3) I want to be healthy.
4) I want to smell awesome! 
5) My hubs will be so tickled I quit, for many reasons. 

--My Plan--
Cold Turkey. 
When I want a cigarette, I pray and then do something productive (exercise, clean, cook, or craft). 

That's it. If you have gone through this, any advice is welcome. 

I'm trusting in Jesus to take care of me in this endeavor. 
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13

Please Excuse the Mess.

So sorry that the blog is a hot mess. I'm working on a few things, if you can't tell. Just have patience with me! :)
But here's a couple of things that make me laugh:
I love this so much!! 

My favorite show is 30 rock, but I love parks and recreation almost as much. 

But if you're bored here, with the mess and all, go on over to my friend Allison's blog. It's called "Feeding My Temple" and she's has an awesome recipe up today. Here's the link to Allison and her Recipes.

My Tribute to The Hunger Games

I've had a little time on my hands this week. I finally had enough time to read the Hunger Games trilogy. 

I loved the books... so much. I'm actually in a little bit of a depression from finishing them. I dedicated three whole days this week to reading them. I completely lost myself inside their universe, fictional universe. I don't know if you have read them, but I would strongly recommend it. 

So, as my own little tribute for the Hunger Games, I have made a couple little graphics for a couple of my favorite moments from the books. If you enjoyed the books as much as I did, please pin these to your "books to read/have read" board on Pinterest.

I'm Back. Get READY!

So you may have not even noticed I was gone. And in reality, I wasn't really gone... I was just missing. You see, this is my second to last semester in school. I've been pretty good about balancing, until November. November was rough. I got another job, then by the end of November, I quit that job.

So now that finals are over, I'm back! 

I've got some big plans for this little bloggy poo. 

Phase one: January
- Redesign, redesign, redesign. 
- New series called "Just Like Jamie". I'm going to make recipes from Jamie Oliver's Book, "30 Minute Meals."
-I'm going to be documenting my way through my weight loss. 

So, get ready for fun! Join me, please.
