An uncooked ramen and ranch kind of day!

7 weeks from tomorrow looks to be our C Section day! We are so excited for Cloee to be here but not at all ready!  Looking around there are tons of things that need to be done in preparation for her arrival! 
I started a 'To Do List' yet instead of working on the list here I am sitting on the couch, watching Rachel Ray, messing around on the computer while snacking on uncooked ramen noodles dipped in ranch!

I thought maybe if I actually publish my to do list I may have a little more motivation to get things done! We shall see... Here it goes...

Converting Guest Room to Cloees Room
    • Move dresser to master room (or get Ben to do it since I cant)
    • Decide on paint colors & paint
    • Move Barbie case to other side of window
    • Organize all my clothes put ones that I currently wear in Master 
    • Organize shoes (mom working in a shoe store means more than i can ever wear! Over 100 pairs for sure) Pack up summer shoes
    • Catch up on laundry (the guest room has been my hamper)
    • Take down all wall art and either move to another place or put in storage room for garage sale
    • Finish attaching ribbon to Lamp
    • Cover the letters for her name for the wall
    • Hang the letters
    • Hang all wall art
    • Find lil zebras and make over mobile
    • Wash all her new clothes and put away
    • Decide what I want her to wear at hospital and pack (bring different size options)
Other Misc things to do
  • Prepare and pick date for garage sale and have a garage sale
  • Pack hospital bag
  • Pack away all Benjamins summer and too small clothes
  • Set up Bassinet
  • Finish child proofing house for Benjamin
  • Pick date and plan for Benjamins 1st bday party!
  • Plan and have a special get away with Daddy before Cloee comes
There are tons of other things to do around the house daily! 50 days to go! Time to get cracking and get done sooner rather than later so I have some time to just relax and rest before she comes!  Will post some progress reports weekly!

Super Amazing Week!

I feel so left out of everything after our break in!  Its crazy how much you rely on your computer and when its gone you feel so lost!  I'm at my moms so I figured I would take this opportunity to do a lil blog about such an amazing week!

First, I am offically now a stay at home mom again!  My husband is so stinking amazing! Knowing I wouldnt have been able to work for that much longer anyway he went ahead and found another job so I could quit and enjoy my last few weeks of being a mommie of 1 and get some good alone with with my lil monkey!   Now my amazing husband is working 7 days a week! I know its only temporary but still he is such a hard worker and such an amazing provider for our family!  I love that he is willing to do whatever it takes to take care of us! He truly is such an amazing man and I am so beyond blessed to have him!  So now he has a Full time week day job, 1 weekend a month drill and the other 3 weekends a month doing the contractor school! Working like a crazy man till he deploys next year! Luckily he is home every evening and we get to spend lots of time with him before he goes!  Its so hard to believe that he will be leaving in 6 months for a year! Ugh but I know all things will work out!

On to part two.. Not only is my husband the most awesome hardworking provider for our family he also made a decision a few weeks ago that has brought nothing but blessings! He has always been a faithful tither.. Me not so much... Its always been yes i want to but to me if it came down to tithing or eating, paying bills etc im gonna eat and pay my bills first.. lol anyways he finally got fed up and said were gonna do it, were gonna be faithful and thats that.. .And in just making that decision and sticking to it and putting God first in our finances everything seems to turn around! He got this great job opportuinity which got us the extra money we needed that allowed me to quit and stay home for the last 10 weeks of pregnancy, I am also getting to make some extra needed money by watching a friends little boys a few days a week and just found out the Insurance benefit side of his deployment kicks in starting in October which also saves us $200 per month! Our budget finally makes sense, we put God first and everything else just worked out like it should! God is good and my husband is awesome for being obedient and again taking care of our family and using Godly Wisdom!

I am so humbled to know that God has given me such an amazing husband and friend!  Ben is an incredible dad and I seriously do absolutely love him more every day! I am going to take every opportunity over these next 6 months and take advantage of every bit of time I can have with him! My heart breaks knowing he will be away for so long but I am more than proud knowing he will be doing such amazing things to protect our freedom!   I can't thank him enough for making this huge sacrafice for us its beyond what I ever expected and beyond what alot of men would do! I totally adore him in every way and really cant brag on him enough!

I love you Ben Sanders with all my heart and thank you with all that I am for all you are doing for our family!  You are an amazing husband, father, friend and so much more! I can never thank you enough and never fully descirbe just how very much I love and adore you!  <3
