Slacker

It’s been a little over a month since I’ve created a post on here. “Why so long, Jaz?” Well, I’ve been busy…though that isn’t an excuse to not work on my craft and update my peeps. The day after my last post, I participated in a two-week women’s discipleship program that changed my life. My…

Flat Tire, Baby Kicks, & Involuntary Squats

Wow, wow, WOW! What an exciting week. This week was the last week for our kiddos at school and my last week of work. SUMMER HAS BEGUN!!!! I am thrilled to start the summer because I am loving the heat and I have lots to look forward to and prepare for this summer. But first,…

Friendships

Throughout my young life, I’ve had MANY friendships. I’ve had good ones, bad ones, crazy ones, and random ones. I’ve also had some very short friendships and others that are still going strong after 4, 8, and 15+ years.  I am very much an extrovert. I can have an awesome conversation with a random person…

Don’t accept the mundane!

In a life full of to-dos, long work hours, and meetings, it is very difficult to slow down. Not only that, but we get so wrapped up in our mundane routines of everyday life that we run on autopilot. Routines are necessary, but so is spontaneity. The mundane takes the opportunity to enjoy every moment…

Why I Like Fridays

Rarely do I get the chance to come home, take my pants off, pick a lounging spot, and spend time enjoying every spoonful of my butter pecan ice cream as slowly as I want to. Ah! It feels good. I’m currently sitting on my bed as the window behind me lets in the beauty of…

The Beginning of Weird?

Last night I experienced something I will never be able to again…well, perhaps I might. I took my growing baby out of me and held HIM. How sweet the moment was. Before you think I am crazy, I’ll mention now that I had a dream that I got to take my baby out of me to see…

Growing, Growing, Growing!

Hi all!! I am officially four months and I finally have a baby bump that appeared approximately two days ago!! I now know what other moms mean by “you get bigger overnight!” It’s true! Sunday, I didn’t look pregnant. Today, I look like I’ve been here a while. Holy moly!! This makes everything so much…

May 4th!

Today, I turned 24 years old at 11:11am (thanks mom for keeping great records lol)! Praise the Lord for the blessing of seeing another year!!! As I wrote on Facebook today, this year has been so eventful for me already! I am currently in my second trimester and couldn’t be more excited about starting a…

Birth is Beautiful

Birth. What are my thoughts on birth? Well, I know that we have an awesome Creator who made women and their bodies to birth babies if they choose to. From puberty to menopause (with birthing babies in between) our bodies endure and experience some incredible changes. Most women (maybe all at first??) are afraid of giving…

I’m Pregnant!

YES! You read correctly. My husband and I are expecting our first child! We are sooo excited and nervous about this. We are still newlyweds so this is pretty much a honeymoon babe (though, not quite). As hard as it may seem for some, this was planned. Hubby and I discussed this before we got…
