On top of all that it is my hopes to be selling Pink Zebra soon, so not only can I offer you fashion but I will also be able to offer you the smell of a yummy inviting home!

 

So stick around and start adding your friends because the best is yet to come….including a giveaway on all the pages that I have!

Stress

So I don’t know how many of you have been following what has been going on, over a month ago my mother in law (aka) mama got really sick and passed away, 2 days later my son was jumping in his trampoline got is earing pulled out and had to have stitches, the very next day the hubs and to be rushed by squad to the ER we truly thought he was dying all of his stats were extremely low. The next day I sprained my ankle by falling, 2 days later I fell exactly the same way but I broke it this time in 2 different spots and tore some ligaments.

My hubby is over stressed, overwhelmed, in over his head and working too much on to many things while I just sit here. In June we are having a memorial benefit for my mother in law and Cory and I are the only ones really passing out flyers and looking for donations, there a few other people who we appreciate but for the size of our committee there should be more! Now mind you my dr has told me to only walk when necessary , I have a boot, I also have a Fitbit, so I try to stay under 1,000 steps a day, I haven’t been able to do that at all, but by the time I went to bed yesterday I had 8,000 steps.

Now I am completely and utterly sore, hardly can stand, swollen like I don’t know what and even more aggravated because I look around at this house and see all that needs done, and I just can’t to it. Being depressed is one thing, having anxiety is another BUT being bipolar and ADD with a broken ankle is not fun at all!

I am not writing this to vent I am writing to be real, I like to share things and until I have the full site up and running the way I want it to be I thought I would share some of my journeys, my days with you. I did find something a friend posted yesterday though that is going to be my new mantra….

“As you go throughout your day, keep an eternal perspective. What matters most in eternity is loving God and people. When we have the right perspective, the little frustrations of life fade away.”

~Sara

Another good one from today!

“It’s easy to be our best when we’re getting good breaks and things are falling into place. That doesn’t take much faith. But what about when you’re working hard and not getting the credit; you’re honoring God but not seeing increase? Will you trust Him when it feels like you’re going in circles? Will you stay passionate when you’re doing the same thing over and over?”

~Sara~

That one hits home a lot right now!

Thank you guys for taking time to read, thank you for following, I hope more of you will come over to the dark side, May the 4th be with you!

Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork

This Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork will literally melt in your mouth, my family loves this stuff and the best part is it’s a fix it and forget it meal!
I use 2 2-4lb pork loins (that way I can freeze a bunch of it)
3 packs of Campbell’s Slow Cooker Apple Bourbon Sauce

slow cooker

Throw all ingredients into your slow cooker, low heat for 6-8 hours then turn to keep warm and cook over night to let the meat really soak in the flavor! Oh so yummy and yet healthy and high in protein!

bow

An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.
~Unknown~

The Hebrew word most often (there are others) translated as “sin” (Chata’ah) in English text, was derived from an archery term, literally meaning “to miss the mark”. It is an error, mistake, or case of “missing the target”. And it is in our very recognition that we are in error, or have made a mistake, that change and transformation can begin to be enacted within us. By continuing to focus and take aim at the target, we can ultimately overcome those obstacles that are hindering us, and hit the bullseye…winning the prize that has been awaiting us all the while.

The Power of Vinegar!

Birghten coffee cups and teacups: Gently scrub stains with equal parts vinegar and salt or baking soda.

dont_quit1

What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.
~Alexander Graham Bell~

There is something that happens when one reaches a point of decision regarding their calling, and a determination that they will not stop seeking until they have attained to it. When the cause is a noble one, Divine forces are placed into operation to bring it to manifestation. Don’t be overly concerned with the dark places that it may lead in order to reach fulfillment. They are merely stepping stones along the way. Go forward with a simple faith and trust that your path is being Divinely orchestrated…and it will be!
