About Me

My photo
I am a momma of 6 :) I have one grand-daughter who is 2 and a half and one who is 9 months!!...my youngest son is 6 months younger than the older one and 1 year older than the baby :) We homeschool and we are always on the go! I like to joke and say we are "addicted to chaos"! Long story short - we are parents of kiddos every age imaginable (almost) and like everyone else...We're learning as we go along! Thank the Lord...He's forgiving and LOVING - 'cause we're truly undeserving of all the wonderful gifts He's given to us!

Cha cha cha changes....

Each day is filled with many changes.
I am so very pleased to say that it seems we have begun to figure out the health issues with hubby.
He had a car accident in 2000 and it left two bones in his neck cracked - they always check on those - but what they hadn't noticed was the one above the damaged two was at a SUPER weird angle and was pinching his spinal nerves!And his "head was out of whack ...lol I'm gonna let that one pass...:)(aren't you proud of me?)
Thank you Dr.Accurso III of Miami (WOO HOO...give it up for Chiropractic care!!)

So - it is a trip (1.5 hours each way) three times a week for now - but seriously - WHATEVER makes D feel better - it's worth it! and let me tell you - This is the Chiropractor who made the last few months of my pregnancy with Malachi SOOOOO much better - My back was SUPER DUPER in MAJOR PAIN! - If it weren't for those adjustments I may have just cried my way to 42 weeks!
So - YES I am promo-ing their office! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! GO NOW! :)lol

Along with the re-alignments we have begun eating healthier yet. (It's always hard to explain to people - that just cause we're bigger (heavy) doesn't mean we don't know a LOT about nutrition - we just haven't found the time to add a lot of exercise to all the healthy food :)and I can't even begin to tell you how much exercise D gets each day anyways - so I always kinda feel guilty asking him to take a walk with me when he finally gets home! I'm the one who sits at a desk all day...in a/c...Thank you God! :)

So - we're not only trying to eat more organic (mostly the dirty dozen) but we're also drinking a super healthy shake mix in the mornings (lots of organic greens...yoguart..a few berries) Boosting our omegas (healty fats!!!) and taking extra vitamins.
What I notice with approaching our days this way is that I feel better at the end of the day and can imagine fitting in a bit of walking or stair stepping!
Otherwise if I'm starving when I get home - grab something quick and easy - I'm just ready for bed then!! (and of course it never happens that way!...laundry...meals...lunches...etc..etc...etc...)
I'm honestly doing this this time NOT as a diet. I just want to feel better - and I'm betting that I look better eventually too.

OKAY onward and upward...........
We are busy busy busy lately! Working on a big transition in our family - we bought a travel trailer and it needed some (A LOT) of work. So every spare moment (lol...spare moment?! What is that?!)we've been working on it!

Then....a few days ago I went to a conference and was honored to see
Steve Forbs
Laura Bush
Gen. Colin Powell
John Walsh
James Smith
along with a few others (Dan Marino was there - but I left a bit early so I could be at the doctors appt with hubs :)
It was an amazing event...yes the event tried to sell you a couple things - but it was NOT high pressure - if you didn't want it ..you simply didn't buy it!
Just the opportunity to be able to hear in person what these influential people had to say - and what amazed me the most?
It was billed as a "business motivation seminar" but WOW was it "GOD AND COUNTRY"
Everyone unashamedly spoke of their faith!
They even had an alter call!
I was amazed and it really gave my heart hope! :)

So....that's my Friday Fabulous update..:)
I pray that each of you has an unbelievably wonderful weekend!
I am going to enjoy it with my family - especially my Hubby who is more and more his 'ol self each day :)

Blessing to you my friends!
~With all my heart~


  1. good for you & your family - glad your hubby has found some relief for his problems. I love my chiropractor/holistic health dr - but I can't afford him! He even gives me a church member discount ... so I can go a few times a year when my migraines are giving me grief.

    that conference sounded great - lots of interesting people - and how wonderful they spoke of their faith too. awesome!

  2. Glad to hear that things are getting sorted out!!! It's always such a relief to find answers to those problems that seem to try to elude discovery! :-)

    The conference sounds just wonderful!! I could use some of that motivation too!! :-)

    Sounds like your doing great with eating healthier!! I sure miss my morning smoothies! I could try a more diabetic friendly/low carb type but frankly I just can't imagine a smoothy without bananas. :-( Perhaps someday. For now I'm working to get more cultured foods into my diet--especially my kombucha. Love it!

    Anyway, glad to read your updates!! Blessings to you and your family!! <3
