Maternity Insurance

Wanna know what one of mine and my husband's greatest fears is?  Expecting a child, without maternity insurance.  I currently have a great insurance policy for healthy young adults under 30, but it does not cover maternity care.  My husband has great insurance through his job, but it would cost SO much for me to be added to his plan.

I need your help.  What do YOU do for maternity insurance?  Do you have it at all?  Do you have a great plan with maternity coverage?  If so, please give me some information.  Feel free to post anonymously! 

Thank you!

DIY: From Easter to Useful

I took two baskets from Easter and spray painted them to make them useful!

  I now use one of the baskets to throw used handtowels in between washings :D

Yes, I see blue too!  But you know what?  I didn't see it before I got down low and took the picture...and that's okay!


Money Isn't Everything

Last night, I had a conversation with my dad.  He informed me that he lost a contract with a large company he and my mom do business with.  This was a MAJOR contract, their largest yet.  The company did a rebid, and they lost out.

With a happy tone in voice, he told me that it was okay.  He prayed about the situation and he knows that God had their best interest in mind.  He reminded me that money isn't everything, but family is more important.   I have a niece who is depending a lot on them right now, and they see this as an opportunity to really focus on her.

In the world we live in today, to have parents that tell us that money isn't everything....that's a good thing.  If they are practicing what they preach...well, that's even better.

Happy Sabbath!

Fear not, for I am with you;

      Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
      I will strengthen you,
      Yes, I will help you,
      I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.  Isaiah 41:10

My nephew, Tanner.

Meet Tanner!

Tanner was born June 16th. I got to officially meet him back in September. He is a beautiful baby boy. I'm so in love!

Isn't he adorable in his John Deere? The Blanket he is sitting on belonged to my late Papa. He would have been so proud of this precious baby boy!

I know I am proud!

Pray for the Caudle's

(Click on photo to view entirely)

Please pray for this man and his family. He has joined the Army to help provide insurance for his wife who is battling ovarian cancer. I cannot imagine being in his wife's position, or the childrens' position. I admire him for what he is doing, providing for his family.

In Recovery

I haven't posted in a LONG time, but there is plenty to catch-up on here in the bloggy world! I'm currently in recovery from the flu. As hard as I tried not to get it, I did! I'm starting to think that I haven't had it before because I don't remember it taking this long to get over!

In other news, I got my hair shaped today! It's very cute and healthy. I'm trying to grow it long again, but I can't stand when I need a trimming!

I hope to post some pictures soon from latest happenings. Guess what? We are about to celebrate our one year anniversary! How neat is that!?!

I've got a roast cooking and it smells so good! Yum! Happy Wednesday!
