I Really Wish We Had These...

I've never seen or heard of "Mom to Mom" or "Consignment Sales" around here. But then again, I live in a small town. Which shrinks to about half it's size when the college students leave.

But I'd seriously love to find a sale like this. I have 4 kids. And I'm a single mom. These types of sales would help so much! I'm not even lying. But until I can find great deals like Jen, I do have lots of friends. And we do some swapping between our kids' clothes. :)

Trina has been inspiring me so much lately. Have you been reading her blog? I have. Every day I go to her blog. Just hoping that she has posted something. Trina has been sewing a lot lately. Using things in her closet that just don't work anymore. You know, to make things that do work. So impressive!

Trina is cute as a button. And did you see that cute dress? Well, it made me just run through my closet. Looking for things that I haven't been wearing lately. And I have a few shirts that I want to try making into something more wearable. :)

Happy Easter!

I just wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Easter! I'm so excited to be entering this new chapter of my life. Religion has literally saved me and my kiddos this year. It's the center of our life. And the entire reason why we have survived. That much I know.

Today is much more than bunny rabbits and eggs. I'm positive that even my itty bitties understand that. I'm hoping that all of you have a very blessed day! Happy Easter! :)

This lady, she inspires me. Kandee has been through so much in her life. Well, of the part that I know of. Kandee shares so much of her life. Her kids, her struggles, her past, and all the happiness! She always has such an optimistic view on life. And is such a great mom!

Look at her little "cupcake" her. Such a precious doll! I just don't know where to begin. In my darkest days, Kandee gave me hope. As I started this new life, I questioned many things that I was doing. Was I doing this for me? Or for my kids? Would my kids be better off in the situation that we were in? They still had their dad. Or should we leave? To be safe. And happy.

Many nights, I would sit there and listen to Kandee's stories. I religiously read her beauty blog, and her personal blog. And I realized that I had done right. If not for me, for my kiddos. Because now, they are safe. And so happy. Things may not be easy. But we're together. And making the best of our life together.

Whenever I need a little inspiration, I head to Kandee's blog. She fills my heart with love, understanding, and all the things I need to heal. I feel more refreshed after reading her posts. And I feel like I have the chance to do more good in my kiddos' lives. Take a minute and go visit Kandee. I promise, you won't regret it! :)
