five month hiatus... and probably a bit longer

i really didn't think i would blog again any time soon... i'm surprising myself right now. a lot has been going on in my life in the last five months...


we couldn't afford living in our home in laguna anymore so we moved to lompoc (just north of santa barbara) to live with my mom and step-dad 

got the kids situated in their new schools

got ourselves situated with our new life


dan's little sister got married

our armada got repossessed (so that makes two cars taken from us)

dan's grandma goes into the hospital and is put on life support.. all her organs were shutting down and she had sepsis but praise God she made it through and now is well

dan got offered a job in houston, texas by my brother in law and moved in with him, my sister and their kids


the kids and i adjust to dan being gone

we send a car package to dan for his thirty-first birthday

tyler places third for the WSA in morro bay and gets a trophy

we miss dan terribly

i become obsessed with HAR


the kiddos have spring break

i celebrate my thirty-first birthday

friends and family love up on me

we go to burlingame (san fran) for my nieces birthday and have fun with family

we start paying off debt


we pay off both of our cars 

we pay off our credit cards

we are slowly but surely coming out of debt

the kiddos and i have gone three months without dan

my mom, gran, aunt and i go to an antique fair in nipomo that was featured in country living mag... i was so excited but turns out it was over crowded and everything was priced way too high. i had better luck at the antique mall in arroyo grande

i'm still cleaning and cooking (my moms house) as payment for letting us live here

ty ranks 11 overall for the WSA in his age division - we are so proud

tannyn is in alice in wonderland with the local theater group and plays a flower - i made the flower head pieces

memorial weekend i fly out to visit dan... it was such a nice reunion... got a lot of quality time in, hung out with brandi, kelly and jacob, looked at houses, stayed with my sister and her fam, went to galveston, fished at dan's secret spot and just had a great time.... 


missing dan, kids last day of school is tomorrow - taking them to the beach after, summer round up at santa barbara bowl with christina and kim on friday, some possible camping, maybe a road trip to san fran to see my brother, my sis in law and kiddos, still obsessed with HAR, and praying and praying that we find a house (and a car) so we can move in july

so there is a little run down of what's been going on (i i left a lot out) for those of you who are still interested in reading my blog. once we move, i may just be making a come back!

he's such a stud

wow, it's been a while... 

we've had A LOT going on here... a lot of changes are in the works in my life and i'll have to update you all with a post some time in the near future but right now i just wanted to take this time to brag about tyler - today he was photographed surfing at our local beach, salt creek. the photos are here if you would like to see them - he's such a stud and i'm so proud!!

 his photos are 16-25 and 42

happy new year!


*it is driving me insane that the photo isn't centered but blogger is being lame... sorry.
