Up All Night...

I shared with my community group on Thursday night that I feel tired and overworked...I wouldn't say that if I didn't feel that way! I'm the type of person that likes to keep myself busy. If I don't have some purpose, something to do, then I will go crazy.

Izzie has been ill the last 5 days. Each day, I have come home to a crate full of diarrhea and a dog covered in diarrhea. I would spend almost an hour as soon as I got home cleaning it all up, giving Izzie a bath, etc. If I did absolutely nothing at work all day, it might be ok to have to do all of that...but I have a physical job and I'm tired when I get off!

I feel so bad for my little girl. She is acting normal but pooping every hour or two. Jimmy and I didn't sleep well last night because we'd wake up every couple of hours to clean a poopy mess off the floor. Final thought: if this is any indication of what it might be like to have a baby, I'M NOT READY!!! Please be praying for my Izzie girl and for my sanity (and my husband's sanity)...

Jamaica...Days 5-7

Because our camera broke, I have no more pics from the rest of the trip :( I'll just put some random ones in this post. The rest of the trip was equally as amazing as the first part of it...good food, parties every night. There was a chocolate buffet one night (wish I had a pic), lots of reggae music, and I got a massage on our last day. This trip was so amazing and I can't wait to repeat it! We're hoping to go to St. Lucia in 2013 with other couples :)

Jamaica...Day 4

Hanging out at one of the beaches:

Hanging out at one of the pools:

I think Jimmy and I would agree that Day 4 was the highlight of our trip. This was the day we went on the catamaran cruise to Dunn's River Falls. The boat was amazing, the ride so peaceful. We stopped a few minutes into the trip to go snorkeling. I wasn't as panicked this time as I was on our honeymoon. Being in the open water freaks me out a bit! After snorkeling, we headed towards the falls. It was the coolest thing ever. The water was freezing but it was worth it to be able to climb the falls. Our camera stopped functioning right before the falls so we didn't get any pictures of it but we bought a DVD to remember it. After returning to the boat, they opened the alcohol and the party started! We had a sweet ride back full of fun and dancing!
Later that night, we ate at what ended up being our favorite restaurant, Valentino''s Italian.

If you ever go to Jamaica, you MUST go to Dunn's River Falls in Ocho Rios!!!

My New Year = Taking Action

I wasn't going to make a New Year's Resolution because I just don't get into that whole thing but Pastor Rich inspired me to think of one. Some of you know that Jimmy has been working on getting his Masters in Accounting and moving to the "next level" in his career. He has been applying for different jobs for at least a year and has had no luck getting interviews for accounting jobs. About 3 or 4 months ago, he decided to start applying for sales positions at his current company which means we would have to move. He has received a lot of positive comments about his work performance and his boss said he had a really good chance of getting one of the sales positions. So far, Jimmy has had two interviews for one specific position.

As this process has gone on, I've become lazy. I've been living in the future of what might happen if he did get one of these jobs. I've been going crazy looking up real estate in these cities, etc. I've stopped doing anything with our new home just in case we move in the future. I've been rediculous about the whole thing. Therefore, my resolution is to LIVE IN THE PRESENT and not in the future of what may or may not happen. This inspired me to do a couple of projects today.

First, I took two of our wedding pics and bought frames for them:

I then bought a shelf and this is the result (above our bed):

I stole this next project idea from Pinterest. A great way to organize your scarves with shower hooks and a hanger!

During this process, I found out I have way too many scarves! But I love them so much!!!
