Teen Mom~The Show



Ok every tuesday Me and My Teen Mom (daughter) watch this show faithfully:) It's our tv time together every week. I don't watch much t.v. but I get all into this show....But tonights show really got to me...Amber is a very abusive girl and I think someone needs to do something about it...How can they just video tape this and watch the domestic violence happen in this household? I just don't get it. I have to say I am glad to see Gary man up alittle and move out and take his daughter...becuz she is not in good hands with her mommy..

It had me tearing up tonight when Farrah took her daughter to meet her fathers sister and baby.....I feel for farrah, but that girl has a good head on her shoulders and I hope things work out for her...I am also glad to see her and her mother working things out because she needs her mom no matter what she might think or feel. Her daughter looks so much like her daddy.....

Caytlin and Tyler are so cute together....sad they didn't get to graduate, but they have plans to finish and go to college and that's good....There daughter looks so much like tyler

Maci finally was able to work things out with Ryan as far as visitation goes w/bentley...that is a good thing. Her moving away might have made them both realize that they have to be civil since they have a child together.....

I just had to share my thoughts on this show tonight.....Do any of you watch Teen Mom? If not what shows do you watch?

Happy Blogging and Goodnight!!

My Sunshine!!

My Grandaughter!! Gabriella Grace

Wow!!!!
Time sure does fly by with a blink of the eye.
She has grown so much and is getting so big. She has 2 bottom teethers, almost 2 top teethers:) She is saying mama, dada, bobo and just making any kind of noise she can make. She is such a happy baby! She wakes up smiling and she goes to sleep smiling.


She is such a joy to have around......A blessing, miracle and a gift she is:)
I sometimes still say " I can't believe that i am a Nana at my age" yeah I am only 36 and my daughter who is "Mommy" is only 15 now! Yeah I know......But things happen and My husband and I support her and the baby.. Daddy is around, he actually lives with us and is going to school...There education is really important to them both and need it to survive with a child at such an early age, ya know?

Excited about christmas coming up and her being all into the tree and presents.. Makes me remember back when mine were so little and santa was such a big deal....Well with them now, it's I just want MONEY mom!! lol Real easy to do for me:)

She is walking around in her walker, she loves her bouncy or exercauser thingy....

My daughter has done really well with becoming a mommy. I still tend to be mother hubbert but I have learned to back up and let her try or learn herself.....Just a habit I guess.

I just wanted to share a little update on my baby girl:)
I do have to say that Mommy and Daddy have done a really good job at becoming good parents....For the next 18 yrs is going to be a journey and I hope they are able to enjoy the little things in life and treasure them with there daughter!




I sure will update later on....when she is doing more and is talking and walking....Oh and getting into things:)) I can't wait!!lol

Happy BLogging and Oh I almost forgot!!!!

T.G.I.F!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Essentials for Life" Book Review




It has taken me alittle longer than usual to finish this book. In between moving and school and life, I got off track with reading books. But, I am on track and I am ready to read me some good books.

I was sent this book "Essentials for Life" by Marcia Ford for review. I love getting books in the mail:)

This book was a good and helpful read. "Basic Guide to What Matters Most" is about getting your life back on track and in order according to how the bible says too.

Some good tips and organizational skills to help you on your way.

The book discusses topics that the author considers to be essential for life in today's society. I have to say that this book does a great job at helping people remember where things that are important in a Christians life.

I enjoyed reading this book over time and was able to learn from it and pass a few tips on to others that I know could use the advice. I would recommend this book to alot of people that need to get organized and back on track.

I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.



BOOK DESCRIPTION:

A growing number of people recognize their need for a reliable guide for their life's journey. Essentials for Life fills that need by helping readers get back to the basics of what matters most with a fresh perspective on four core essentials of the Christian life:

* What do I believe?
* How do I grow closer to God?
* What should my character and life reflect?
* How do I live my life every day?

Essentials for Life offers fifty daily or weekly readings that each include a key life-guide principle, scripture and quotes, meditation, an interesting fact, and a unique application suggestion. Each discussion offers hope and a sense of peace and well-being by focusing on life with an eternal perspective.

The content offers spiritual truth while the interior graphic design, which includes sidebars and visuals, enhances the readability and the impact of each core essential.

THE ENTOURAGE EDGE DUALBOOK



You know how you go into a store and the sales person tells you all the great things about a product and your like "I gotta get one of these":)Well that would be me!! So before my college quarter started I bought one. I just had to have one;)

I absolutely love it!

I really like the fact that I can download e~books to it and take it anywhere and there I have a book with me.....gives me something to do when ever I feel like reading!!

That was the main thing that caught my eye while deciding to buy it, becuz they said that my college bookstore now you can buy your books, e-books and it keeps me from having to carry those big heavy books around...well not this quarter but next I will know more of what i need to do....

So i just wanted to share with you my new TOY!!!

IF ANYONE OUT THERE HAS ONE.....PLEASE SHARE WITH ME YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS GREAT TOY:))~ I HAVE NOT YET GOT TO GO THRU THE WHOLE APPS THING AND STUFF...BUT I WILL SOON!!

~Weekend Recap~


Monday is here and now it's time to wait for friday...Isn't it weird that we dread monday's and almost everyone can't wait till friday?

I woke up this morning in a not so good mood....had burger king for breakfast, which by the way I so didn't need becuz I am wanting to loose some weight...HELLO.....NOTE TO SELF!! WATCH WHAT YOU EAT AND STAY AWAY FROM FAST FOOD:)
I had class today for a few hours and my daughter and grandbaby came home from being gone all week.....I was so excited to see them both!

Wow....I could have used a few more days added to my weekend, I was not ready for it to end. It was such a relaxing weekend with my husband. I don't think we have ever had a weekend like this one in along time.:)

The kids were away at friends and family houses all weekend so it was just me and hubby:)~
Friday I had class all day long, which was super long for me....sitting in class for over 9 hrs was crazy! Came home and hubby was snoozing so I thought what better time to snuggle...so I creeped up under the covers and fell asleep with him for a few hours....
Saturday I had class in the morning but when I got home, hubby and I took a drive around just to get out of the house and we had some good long conversations....which we don't do or we never really have lots of time for anymore...So i was thankful for this time we had together..When we got home we took a nap together.....wow! a nap two days in a row.....I have beat my record of nap taking..lol
Sunday He had to go do a few things for his work then when he returned home, we took a ride to southern ohio and visited a few friends and hung out, then came home late and went to bed..
So that was pretty much my weekend....To most it might sound boring but to me, Oh it was so relaxing and quiet around here....and to top it off the weather was beautiful!

I think i am posting alittle late...
But head on over to All Adrienne I found this idea over at her blog:) Thanks Adrienne:)


That was my weekend......
Tell me about yours!

~Girl Talk Hop~ HOBBIES

I came across Girl Talk Hop tonight and I just had to join.......



What better conversation to blog about than girl stuff...right?

HOBBIES:
This is going to be interesting, I have alot of things that I like or love to do, but I am not sure if I can call them hobbies....so to narrow the list

Cooking~
I love to cook new recipes for different dinners or meals that we have never tried before and also to see how they turn out:)

Baking~
I love to try to bake from scratch, like cookies, cakes or anything sweet.....By the way usually makes a big mess in my kitchen:)

Blogging~
I have been blogging for almost a year now and I love blogging when I get a chance. I would love to be able to blog everyday but with family, school and life in general sometimes finding time doesn't work the way I would like for it too....

Pictures~
I love taking pictures of random things and people....I carry my camera everywhere I go usually because I never know what I might come across

Seeing this is my first Girl Talk Hop it's kinda short but sweet....I hope anyways:)

I am so glad I discovered you and I look forward to the future conversations and blog hopping that will take place..

Happy Blogging to all.......

GIRLS ROCK:)

9/11 Moment of Silence



I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A MOMENT AND REMEMBER EVERY PERSON THAT LOST THEIR LIFE, FAMILY MEMEBER, LOVED ONE, CHILDREN, FRIEND, HUSBAND, WIFE..........WOW! IT'S STILL HEART BREAKEN TO IMAGINE TODAY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.

I REMEMBER THE DAY I WAS PULLING IN MY DRIVEWAY AND HEARD IT ON THE RADIO AND SAW ON THE TV THAT I NEEDED TO GO GET MY KIDS FROM SCHOOL.....A DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET HOW MUCH FEAR AND HURT I FELT AND SAW IN SO MANY OTHERS EYES, LIKE MYSELF..

QUOTES I FOUND:

“Terrorism against our nation will not stand.”
- George W. Bush –

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “
- President George W. Bush,

Why you ask, Well my grandbaby was up all through the night with a cough, having trouble breathing,sneezing and she is teething.....oh and I forgot to mention she was SCREAMING for long periods of time also:)

My daughter is only 15 and there is no way that I can leave for school, be gone 9 hours and her be sick like she is, so I decided that i will stay home and take her to the dr. since that is the right thing to do right?
