A Girl Can Dream Can't She?

A perfect day in a perfect world would go like this. Wake up to a clean house since the housekeeper came yesterday for her weekly visit. Lace up my running shoes and hit the pavement because in a perfect world I would be a morning person. Wake the kiddos up after the run and take them to school. Come home, shower and head off to my cute little loft - ksac studio - where I would figure out my projects for the day. Pick out cute fabric, turn on some music and sew a few bags.

Next I would meet some girlfriends for lunch at a cozy little cafe overlooking the bay at our new Maritime Park - because in a perfect world there would be more to do in Pensacola. Then maybe I would work on more sewing projects or maybe I would call it a day and go shopping.

Time for the kids to come home from school so home I go. Figure out what to cook for dinner, kids play, check my facebook status and wait for Doug to get home. We would eat dinner together and put the kids to bed. Why not check my facebook newsfeed again and make plans with Judy for the beach tomorrow. Then off to sleep in my clean room (because the housekeeper came yesterday remember?) with my wonderful husband!

Next day, BEACH DAY! Then repeat.

I have a wonderful life so please don't take this the wrong way. But we all have hopes and dreams and today this is mine....Just thought I'd share.

Just Call Me Martha...

Today a guest speaker gave the message at church. He spoke about Martha and Mary and the lesson Jesus taught Martha when He told her to stop being busy and worrying about so many things and focus on Him. Wow. That hit me like a ton of bricks. I looked at my friend Judy and said "I'm Martha!" At the same time she said "You're Martha!" It was quite funny.

My commitments have not slowed down. In fact I just really don't know what to let go. I love everything that I do...but I need to have time to spend with Jesus. Our church just read the book Outflow and Pastor preached about it for several weeks. Did I read the book? No, I was busy being Martha.

The guest speaker also spoke today about Tim Tebow (by the way I am NOT a gator fan but do wish FSU could have Tim as their quarterback). He talked about all of his accoomplishments of course but also about how he spends every morning in the presence of the Lord and I wonder when the last time I was alone with Him.

Ouch.

Race Day!!!

Today I accomplished a goal that I set for myself. Yeah!!! I ran a 5K. The Double Bridge Run to be exact. It was such a good feeling. When I first decided to do this my goal was to finish the race running whether or not I had to walk a little in the middle. As I was training my goal changed to not walking at all during the race. I actually didn't walk at all and finished in my best time ever. Thanks to my friend Judy and her brother Matt who definately kept the pace faster than I would have. I'm glad they did that though. I can't wait until the next race and hope to improve my time. I'll try to get a picture posted but I didn't have my camera with me so when I get a pic from Judy I'll post it. Yeah for running.... I love it!

Christmas in Canada

This year we spent Christmas in Canada and had an amazing time! Kalli and Kole had so much fun playing with their cousins and they loved the snow. The first day we were there was the only good day to play in the snow but they had a blast anyway. We spent alot of time with the family playing games and just hanging out. We also got to visit Doug's grandma and do a little shopping (not enough!) I think one of my favorite events was ice skating. Kalli was a great little skater and Kole liked being pushed around in the chair. All in all we had a great time. Now it's back to reality.
