heading to Wisconsin...


So I am heading to WI to stay a while. My dad is not doing so well. This picture is from our visit in January. He is half the size and looks really bad now.

A week ago he was coughing so hard from being sick that they took him off of food, water and antibiotics...he was only getting morphine. My mom went to bat for him because it just didn't seem right. After a couple days he was back on all 3 as well as a cough medicine. They took him off of an acid reflux pill though that is now causing some other issues. It's not good.

I am not sure what will happen. He may pass away, he may rally and get better again. But in the meantime, I am going to go and be there for whatever comes along.

I know my mom is worn down in every way possible. I hope by us being there it will bring comfort.

Plus. I really want to see my dad again. I do not like the idea that I could have seen him and didn' I am going to go. I am in a season of life where am able to be mobile. So I am taking advantage of it.

So I may or may not be around much because I have no idea what I will and won't have time for.

Please keep us in your prayers. Please pray for my dad.

My boy


A boy is Truth with dirt on it's face,
Beauty with a cut on its finger,
Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair,
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.

Judah is almost 2...oh my...he just keeps getting my humble opinion...

a smattering

immense amounts of craziness since I was on here blogging a week ago.

Lance's dad is in poor health.

My dad is in poor health.

Judah had the pukes while we were in a hotel in San Antonio. And somehow managed to get a black eye and stung by a bee.

Other things going on that are not blog/internet approved as well. It's just a crazy time of life and taking it a day at a time.

I am looking forward to Judah's birthday. He is turning 2 in less than a month. I am more in love with that kid every single day.

I am praying there isn't a funeral before then. But only God knows.

I need a pedicure. I need to sleep for a week. I need to pray more. I need to stop eating hot tamales and eat more green peppers.

I feel random. I am a mixed bag of emotions and focus.

I am watching American Idol while I type this. I love music.

I miss my sister.

Could Taco Bell taste any better? I mean really. I so love that place.

I hope you are doing well...leave a comment once in a while why don't ya? a girl can start to feel like she's talking to herself out here all alone...

make ya laugh

We were driving to our local La Leche League meeting this morning and Judah kept asking if we were driving to see his friend "andew" I told him that Andrew wouldn't be there, it was probably going to be girls..."it will be fun to play with some girlfriends Judah" I said...

his reply:

"I no wanna gul-fend" big pouty face

I am so quoting that back to him when he is 15. haha.

an amazing nap

I took an amazing nap yesterday. A nap where I wasn't keeping an ear open to hear if Judah was awake...A nap where I was fully relaxed because I knew my husband would take care of the little man if he needed help...A nap where I wasn't in charge. I took my nap in a guest room so it almost felt like a I was a guest in my own home. nice.

I don't even sleep that well at night time. Especially when my husband is gone...and even when he's's just a mom thing, being on alert.

Of course I woke up eventually and could hear Judah hollering for me down the hall, and my husband couldn't run and do all of his errands like he had wanted so we gathered up and did them all together once I woke up. But man, that was an awesome nap.

rainy day in nashville, the rainbows came indoors


So my husband got me an iphone this last week. I bought the app "Hipstomatic" and I have been having some fun with it :) I took this picture today when we were at our monthly Drum Circle at Fanny's house of music. I love how his drum mallet looks like a rainbow! It was especially appropriate because today was a super duper rainy day. So worth getting out and getting rained on though to have some drum pounding loud fun :)

I am about to join a group called East Nashville Moms Group. They do play dates in the parks and the community center and in people's homes. I am looking forward to meeting some moms in my hood. I talked to a few of them yesterday at our little local book store called "Fairytales" and they were so incredibly sweet. I had previously been considering joining but was a little bit intimidated because I didn't know anyone...but a few smiling friendly faces is all it took :)

well Judah is yelling "mama!!!" at the top of his lungs over and over and shaking the day lights out of his I guess that's all I have to say for now!
