Feel good friday!

In case you all are wondering, I am going with feel good friday that Mommy etc. put together instead of foto friday. I do pictures for wordless wednseday and I love talking about what is good. So check out mommy etc. and link up she has a great topic today. A song lyric that makes feel good, post it and say why it makes you feel good.

I am choosing the song 'when you say nothing at all' . You can here the song if you click on the title. This not a new spectacular song; but this is a song I sang not so well for my husband on our wedding day. The first I saw him he smiled this beautiful smile and God told me that's the one I will marry. We had not even spoken at that point and started dating 9months later and engaged another few months. He will be gone this weekend for a guy weekend so i thought this would be fitting.

It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Old Mr. Webster could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

A few other things I am feeling good about...
... I had 8 new participants in my weight loss class last night. I have a class of 27 registants. FIRED UP! The returnes participants had lots of results for they're first week. up to over 5 pounds lost. YEAH!!
... I am happy my husband gets to get away and do what he enjoys, riding horses and fishing.
... I recieved another blogging award and will post on that later.
... I do feel good about my children too so here are a few cute pics. LOL!

Have a great friday, God Bless, Christina

Okay so I decided to go wordless because I wanted to share these pictures of the boys playing together (very well) outside and chat a little too (I'm sure you won't mind). They love my garden area, I think they feel kind of lost and it is cool to investigate. They do well not to know over my plants, but if one or two get knocked over it's worth the peace.

I decided today is a lazy and relaxtion day (compared to my normal) and I took the boys outside at 9:30 and I sat on my patio watching and reading a summer magazine with my ice tea (from herbalife of course) and enjoyed the beautiful morning. I noticed a few weeds creeping into my rose garden trying to corrupt the beauty, so I couldn't resist and weeded the edges and taught those weeds a lesson. I gotta tell it's cut-throught with me and the weeds, don't wanna mess with Mama! LOL! Any how we came in 2 hours later and boys ate lunch and my best friend stopped in to eat lunch and chat (and talk about a new Beau siting). But the boys love her and she came with a thomas train and Sir toppem hat for Big Mister. he was elated to say the least. The children are down for naps (hopefully 3 hrs.) and I will get a much needed shower and be ready for a weight loss consultation this evening. All in all a great forenoon and looking forward to the rest of the day.

hope you have a great day and God Bless,

Succotash Tuesday.

Hi, I have missed my bloggy friends and my keyboard to and reading what you have all taken time to write. I have been so swamped with little things that I new I just needed to get caught up a little.

Today is Succotash Tuesday, which is so fitting because I many topics I want to cover and chat about.

I had planned on writing yesterday but my day started out with "Im going to take it easy", "I don"t feal well" and it took a twist around 9:00 in the morning. I figured if the kids are wired and raring to go then I might as well be raring to go to. I washed all the laundry, and did the dishes, and had Little Mister down for a much needed nap at 11:30am and went out side to Mow the yard. We have almost a full acre and so I think I could safely say I mowed with a push mower about 1/2 an acre. Much needed exercise and energy release. I did however not think it through very well when I decided not to wear shoes. This is why..
Forgive me for putting such a horendous picture up but now you know I really did do it.
I am enjoying my garden. I have picked lots of G.Beans and froze some already. I have been picking beets and summer squash as well and loving it. I should have sweet corn soon as it has all tasseled now. i am really ready to get some tomatoes and peppers but I planted those about a month later and so it is all in bud but still has some time. I planted my lettuce for the second time and it is finally almost ready. I know lettuce grows so easy for many people but why do I have issues?
We went to church as a family this past sunday for the first time since the first of may. I missed it so much and it was so nice to be back as a FAMILY. our pastor had a great message about the gift and the freedom we have in Christ.
I should hear this week on whether I get the job I am wanting. It will be full time for the 2 weeks of training then after that it will be 24 hours a week. I am looking forward to going back to work, I feel like I am cheating but I need to be able to collect my thoughts again for more than 30 seconds at a time. I do realize that it won't be a catwalk, and it will seem hectic for a while, but it's like that already. I need to reduce a little stress and this is the best way for right now that I can do it.
I have 3 new particpants coming into the class this week and am excited to see where this will take us. I would love to see the whole classes' total weight loss to be 500lbs. I like to set the bar high, because if you don't you'll never know if you could have.
My sister has some more great recipes over on her blog and the thai peanut sauce is fabulous and easy. She has also run across some research on vitamin b-12 which is a daily supplement in our household. It is great for nerves and emotional balance and energy. I couldn't seem to see many results lately and wasn't sure if it was even helping. Well turns out there are several sources of vit b-12 and the source that 955 of the health foodstore's and pharmacy use is only 3% absorbable to the body. so I guess that explains why we wer'nt seeing the results we wanted. Click on the link above and she has found a great place to by it in liquid form.
Well I do still have much to get done and hope to see you all real soon, God Bless,
