 Your biggest regret in life

I try not to have any regrets in life... after all you learn from everything life throws your way.... and mistakes are part of life.... I do however have two regrets....

1. I didnt' get to say Goodbye to my Father.... (Not sure if that was even possible but I still regret it!) I was mad at him when he passed away.... I still have anger.... I love him so much he gave me life... I just have so many questions that will never be answered......

2. I didn't get to say Goodbye to One of my BEST friends in high School.... for 5 years we were together..... For 5 years he was my best friend... I still think about him alot and again there are so many questions! Even though both of us had moved on in life.... My biggest regret is not being there for him when and if he needed me.... I wasn't there for his family when he left this world and I wasn't there..... Its a regret that again I can't fix....

Your views on mainstream music

I am not really sure what this means.... But I love music, I love listening to new, old and OLD music :) Music makes or breaks my day there is a song for any mood I am in. I can dance to it, I can cry to it, I can sing along and I can drive with it.... there are so many things I do with music but I would have to say my biggest magic trick is having a room full of 12 kids crying, yelling and screaming all becoming silent when I sing to them : ) LOVE it

More Thoughts and Catching up....

So I got my State Licensing packet in the mail Saturday..... makes me almost giddy to get started :P Its a lot of paperwork and my screen doors are all messed up.

This weekend I took a bit of time off..... Went to Rapid City and shopped with my hubby! My baby sister and Brother-in-law watched our kiddos for us so we could finish up! It was NOT relaxing by any means, I was pretty stressed out with all the people.... Its funny how I can be in a room with 12 little kids any given day and still not be half as stressed as I am in a huge store full of people! Whew!

Things I plan on working on this week include:
Taking care of my children and daycare.....
My non-profit to-do list of over 100
Filling out paperwork for State Licensing
Fundraisers to raise money for the Daycare Center
Daydreaming about the center
and the list goes ON AND ON AND ON!!!!!!!

If you would like to help make my dreams come true and Martin SD community better please donate to the cause of "Love, Laugh, Dance & Play Daycare and Community Center."

 A moment you felt the most satisfied with your life

Wow there are so many moments.... But my most satisfied moment even though my whole world was falling apart around me and the floors had been ripped out from under me.... Even in my darkest times I found satisfaction.... The most satisfied was when my husband was baptized! July 25, 2010. I cannot explain the feelings I felt that day! 

July 12, 2006 when I got married was a very satisfying day as well
July 25, 2006 I welcomed my first daughter into the world :)
May 2, 2010 I welcomed my first Son into the world,
May 3, 2012 I welcomed my baby girl into the world.....

There are many many satisfying moments in my life, I have satisfying moments every day! It could just consist of a smile, hug or kiss from one of my children, it could be a feeling i get.... I love life and all the satisfying moments I'll take those dark times and smash them back into the Devils face because I have a life worth living for, and those dark times.... They go away... you get through them, you find new things to make you happy, and deal with the old things until they don't hurt any longer.

Your favorite childhood toys

I have many favorite childhood toys and memories :) Things I still have are many stuffed animals and one barbie I got for one of my birthday's My mom made me a barbie cake with the Long haired barbie that has hair all the way to her feet.... I always wanted hair to my feet! Another cherished toy is a Buffalo I call "Buffy" She has been here since I was a baby and she is HUGE! The biggest Stuffed animal I own or even see most times :P Most of my things that I cherish however were not toys, I had trinkets I kept to remind me of the memories I made and the friends I shared those memories with! The stuffed animals i have kept all these years all have a story that goes with them and I love sharing my stories/memories! One Toy I didn't get to keep but remember vividly was a christmas present from my mom and dad, a Cardboard box constructed into a toy house! OH man that was the COOLEST present I ever got! Mom and dad worked long hours on those houses (Boxes) they painted them added windows and curtains, and even little door knobs for the doors! Gosh I think they lasted maybe a week but I can remember them SO well :) I hope to someday soon make one for my kids :)

Day 4 – 30 Day Challenge

Your Views on religion

I love God! I feel his presence in my life, in my family and friends :) I love talking to God and praying to God.... Singing to him and praising him for everything he has done in my life! I am a christian, I grew up Presbyterian and am still a member there, I also went to a Non Denominational (Christian) Church in Virginia and Babtist, I feel the most accepted, loved and presence of God in the Non-Denominational Church! 

I attended and am currently still a member and youth Elder at Lindsay Memorial Presbyterian church. I am also a member of Tree Of Life Ministries in Lynchburg Virginia! (This is where my whole family are members)

To me it doesn't matter what Christian Religion you are, you are all children of God, we are all going to the same place in the end if we are loving and living for God. Some religions I feel go a little too far to make their people conform to what they think a person's looks/actions ect should be... But I do not look down on anyone, and I pray for those who do not have a God to pray to, because I don't know where I would be without my God! 

Browsing the Web.....

While Browsing the web for cookie ideas for the Mommy & Me Playdate "Cookie Party" Tonight I came across this blog and fell in love! Forgive me if I get alot of new inspiration from them :) This is the cookie recipe I found but check out their site!!! :) I am super excited to make these, I'll let you know later tonight how they turn out :)
