Coolest Pinterest Find..... TODAY

So browsing Pinterest...... I do this a lot..... there may be an addiction somewhere in there but I am IN LOVE with Pinterest..... 

Okay back to subject.... I found this about three years ago, but found it again today.... GUIDED JOURNAL pages..... you can print them for FREE, you can print them in Color OR as coloring pages for those who love to color (ME) 

I love the prompts and questions.... Its just fun to fill out.... and looking back to 2012 when I did them before, so much has changed... So I am going to do them again! 

Check out the website:

Strengthening through devotion

I woke up to find this on our kitchen table :) Cedric has done this many times throughout our 8 years of marriage but its been something that has helped us through pretty much everything! I wanted to share this with you because even though it says "One Year" we have used it for many more than that! We are not completely faithful at keeping up with it but it sure is a lifesaver!!!!!


Thank you for checking my Blog out :)

This New life I live :)

So I've been a stay-at-home-mom for about 5 months now! I have been very busy with packing to move, moving, and unpacking! Learning the ins and outs of our now town and home, as well as meeting new people and making new friends! I have LOVED being able to stay at home with my children. Buying a house has been a challenge, at times i've felt like i'm not doing enough, not making money to help, not keeping the house clean enough, not challenging the children as well as I should be and definitely not getting home as much as I thought I would when i was going to be a "Stay-At-Home Mom"

I did start to sell Pure Romance, which for me has been an awesome challenge, and great time!!! I absolutely love the products but my favorite part is the parties I get to throw for other women and have fun at our "Girls Nights out" I haven't made as much money as some people who do direct sales but I am not losing money and i'm having fun!

I also have made many goals
1. Becoming organized
2. Getting Involved in the Community
3. Initiating Mommy & Me Playdates in Hot Springs
4. Teaching my now 4 and 2 year olds Preschool things (writing, reading and other things) Since there is not a public Preschool here.
5. Blogging.....

I love pinterest, has so many great ideas for just about anything you can imagine! I've been researching Blogs and how to's for starting a Blog as well as other things for stay at home moms, decorating, and learning! OH FUN!

I thought i'd write a little to let you all know i'm still here and I am doing great! I hope you are as well! I will keep you updated on my goals as well as the house and other things! Have an AWESOME DAY!

Post Move.....

So we are officially moved to Hot Springs! The house is still not closed on yet but we have moved!!!! The kids and I are very involved with many "Summer Rec" activities here! Brooklyn is in Art, Gymnastics, T-Ball, and Dance. Easton is in Gymnastics, T-Ball and Dance! They both are learning, meeting new friends and loving the time spent out of the house :) Mommy has met a few new friends as well AND I've been walking as much as possible :) What a great workout just to walk to and from activities!!!!

When we are not at activities, I am unpacking the unlimited number of random boxes, moving things around over and over, picking up toys, enjoying time with my brother and sister-in-law, picking weeds, feeding, bathing, entertaining and all the other fun mommy stuff!!!! I would have to say, I'm just as busy as a stay-at-home momma as I was being a Daycare provider. 

The Move...... And Beyond....

I'm sitting here counting all the blessings i have and all the great things that have happened since I posted last! I closed down my Daycare in March and gave most everything I had from the daycare to a very deserving and awesome woman! I became a stay-at-home mom and packed and packed and packed.

The End of May we moved to Hot Springs SD. We LOVE our new house and i have since been UNPACKING unpacking, unpacking! Here in Hot Springs they have a "Summer Rec" Program aimed at children Elementary aged. My Kids Easton and Brooklyn are in: Art, Dance, Gymnastics, and T-Ball! They love all their activities and this has provided me with an awesome opportunity to connect with other moms who have children my children's ages as well as meeting community Members :) I have had an absolute awesome time doing all of this!

I will post photos of the new house ASAP! I promise :) I hope you have all been doing awesome :) I will say as of right now My most Cherished and favorite part of the house is the "Walk-In" Closet that is ALL MINE :) :) :) Its an OCD persons DREAM! LOVE IT!

Photos to come!

Love Deanna

Getting Back Into Shape?

Well I would have to say I've tried many things since having my third child, but nothing has really stuck, the first one I was SO dedicated but then I hurt my knees somehow, I could barely walk, Was told to relax for about a week and then try again.... Guess what? Motivation GONE never went back to it......

I've kind of felt mad at myself for this for over a year now, so about two months ago I decided that since my excuse was that I never had time to work out or be by myself to go anywhere for exercise.... I would start with Stomach crunches any time I thought about it but it had to be at least once a day! So I started with 50, and did them after I got the kids down for nap, just quietly while they were sleeping, the crunches went from 50 to 100 quickly and I started doing side bends and stretching as well! I was so proud when I hit the two month mark of doing these things EVERYDAY that I decided maybe I was dedicated enough to actually start something....

I went to the WII since I have a couple workout Wii games BUT there were no batteries and I lost interest LOL So I went to my Pinterest Board..... "Back 2 Shape" and found this AWESOME website I will recommend to all of you..... You can sign up for FREE, and there are tons of workouts, challenges and places where you can log your activity and people encouraging you! Best of all its FREE!!!!!!! I am currently still doing my 100 crunches 40 side bends, and am participating in the plank challenge and Butt challenge :) DO IT, if you're ready to get back in shape get MOTIVATED :)
