A diary of sorts...

I don't have a lot of readers. 


It's the truth. 


A fact of life. 

Why would I bother blogging? 

Well.... 


#1. I kinda like it. 
I am not really sure when it clicked in my head that blogging was no less enjoyable without readers. If I am honest I used to dislike checking stats and seeing that I had gotten less that 10 reads in a day, but now I am enjoying being creative without that undue pressure. I don't worry about how many times people read anything on here. I sure wish I'd come to this conclusion sooner. It would have been less pressure to write. I think that's ultimately why I stopped blogging all together for a while. Just burned myself out. Sad to think that because I started blogging in 2006 and even deleted all of my content in frustration at one point. *sigh* 

#2. Even if no one reads it I enjoy getting my thoughts out.
Truth be told I have needed an outlet for a little while. I find myself being a bit of a complainer and think that this blog is helping to reinforce some more positive approaches to my life. I am still unsure how much of my private life I will share, but that it more to my growing disdain for outlets like Facebook and the like. I'll get into all that later. It's WAY too heavy for this post. 

#3. Blogging affords me the opportunity to get creative.
Google images and meme generators are two of the FUNNEST resources the "interwebs" has blessed me with. I take ZERO credit for what I find of course, but how cool is it that I can always discover a new way to communicate a fun point with a picture or gif!

#4. Blogging has connected me to some people & advice that I absolutely adore!
I tend to be rather selective with the websites/blogs I invest myself in. Not because I have stringent standards or anything. I just don't have a whole lot of "sit down and read blogs" kinda time. I am always on the hunt for a blog I can get invested in. My current favorites are Nom Nom PaleoMy Train Of Thought. One is of course a lifestyle blog and the other is the blog of a friend/brother. Both are GREAT! You should check them out! 

YEP. I blog for simple reasons. It's been great. I don't really need readers. I am enjoying my "Diary of Sorts".

Anyway, that's this weeks post. Blessings to you! See you next Saturday.

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Fail.
Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
