Me and Darrell

Me and Darrell 2 years ago

On this day (July 31st) three years ago, you took a huge gamble and married me, that was the best day of my life. I have no idea what i could have possibly done in this life of mine, to deserve such a wonderful man, but i am so grateful. You are my love, you are my strength, you are my heart, You have made all of my dreams come true.There isnt anything about you that i would ever change, im even in love with that Irish stubbornness that you have sometimes.
You are my soul mate, you are the one person who has always been there for me, even when my own mother and family wanted nothing to do with me, you were there. We have been together for almost 14 years now, nearly half of my life, and i feel as though you are a part of my very soul. You stood by me even when i was at my worst and i didnt wanna know myself. To express my love for you with words is almost impossible but here is my attempt. I would say that i love you so much that i would die for you, but thats to easy, I will live for you, i will live for us and our family, and i swear that i will love you more with each year that passes until the day that i am gone from this earth. Happy anniversary babe, I love you.

Cartoon Craziness challenge – My Kids

20140728_121917-120140728_202550-1This weeks cartoon craziness challenge is Kids and Pets, so i decided to draw my kids. Whatcha think?
http://theindecisiveeejit.wordpress.com/2014/07/27/cartoon-craziness-challenge-week-4/


I am Strong

I was sitting alone this morning, my little ones all still asleep, and my mind began to drift.
I started thinking about my mother and her side of the family, who i havent spoken to in over 3 years and i was remembering some of the things they use to say to me, things like how i would never amount to anything, or that i would be in prison by the time i was 15. At the age of about 7 i loved playing with my mothers makeup and getting dressed up, there response was to call me their little street walker, thats a really cute thing to say to a 7 year old little girl huh?
There have been a lot of people mainly family members, who have always looked down on me, they were mean, cruel, and heartless, from the beginning it was like they were trying to set me up to fail, encouraging it, and now that i am not a failure they want no part of me.
All things considered I would have every right to hate them but i dont, no i dont hate them I am grateful.
I am grateful because i know i am strong, because of the things they said and did i know i can persevere through anything, no matter what someone throws at me i can take it. Im thankful for their hatred toward me because it has fueled the fire for me to overcome, their attempts to destroy me have not worked, because of them i am strong, i am resilient, i am better, and its partly because they never thought i would be.
So to anyone who doubted me before, doubts me now, or will doubt me later, its okay and thankyou for giving me that extra something, Thankyou for making me stronger, it wasnt your goal to do this but it is exactly what you have done. As i was writing this post i remembered this song, and thought i would include it, it pretty much sums everything up.

liebster4Hey everybody,
so i was nominated for 3 awards this time, first i was nominated for The One Lovely blog award by http://skinnyandsingle.wordpress.com/, and i was nominated for the Liebster award and The Versatile Blogger award by Andy over at http://lawsonandy.wordpress.com/.

6. What did you want to be when you grew up, and what do you do instead? A wife and mother, my dreams came true.

One – Liner Wednesday

Something everyone needs to remember when they are demanding respect.

If you want to be respected, you must first be respectable.

5-year-old with Terminal Cancer Just Wants Some Mail. Let’s Overflow his P.O. box…

Please send this adorable little boy a birthday card, I will be and im asking all of my friends and followers to do so as well. Lets help make his 6th and what could be his last birthday very special.

Kindness Blog

Danny Nickerson is 5 years old, but not for long. He’s very excited to become a big 6-year-old this Friday. As happy as this birthday will be, however, it will be hard, too.

Danny-Nickerson-01-685x336

Danny has a virtually unbeatable cancer. Doctors have told his family that less than 10 percent of kids diagnosed with his type live longer than 18 months.

So the upcoming celebration will be an emotional day filled with far more highs and lows than a typical 6-year-old’s birthday. And what is he hoping to get for this extraordinary birthday?

Cards.

He loves getting mail.

His mom says,

“He can recognize his name now. When he saw his name on the package from magical fairies on Easter, he was so happy.”

Since Easter, though, packages have slowed down. But now, for his birthday, it’s time to make sure he gets all the cards he could possibly want to read.

Cartoon Craziness – Super Hero Me

20140721_191243-1

So this week the Cartoon Craziness challenge was to either draw your favorite super hero or yourself as a super hero, and since im not really into super hero’s i turned myself into one. This week i tried to make it look more like a cartoon than a comic book drawing, not sure i succeeded but there it is anyway. My powers are invincibility, flying, the ability to read minds, and with my special guns i dont even have to aim, i just picture my target and the bullets track them down.

A Most Embarassing Challenge

images (43)images (44)What is the most embarrassing thing that you have ever done or that has ever been done to you?
For me it is tough to pick just one thing, through the years i have done a lot of stupid and embarrassing stuff, but i think i know the most embarrassing event.
When Darrell and i were dating i was 17 and a binge drinker. We had been dating for about a month when i got completely wasted and passed out, nothing unusual about that at the time, until i awoke in the morning and the bed was soaked. Darrell was still asleep next to me and i was mortified as i came to the realization that I had peed on my boyfriend, thats right boys and girls, i was so drunk that i had peed in the bed. I was so embarrassed i thought i was going to die. Anyone else im sure would have never stopped talking about it, and would have constantly made fun of me for it, but he never even mentioned it.
Now here we are almost 14 years later married with children and the only bed wetting that is going on is the occasional accident by one of our kids, lol.
So here is the challenge write a post about your most embarrassing moment and either do a pingback here, or let me know about it in the comments section and i will reblog it. I am really anxious to see if anyone can top my story, i hope someone can, lol.


One – Liner Wednesday

20140630_203109Treat each day as if it were your last, cause one day you will be right.

http://lindaghill.wordpress.com/2014/07/16/one-liner-wednesday-writing/


This is MY blog

20140703_194209-1-1I will never change my morals or write something i dont agree with because someone else thinks i should. This is my blog and i will write anything i please, acting stupid and calling me a bigot because i think abortion is murder does not bother me in the slightest, it will not make me change my opinion, it will not make me stop talking about it, it will not even make me talk softer about it, so dont waste your time.
If you are looking for a blog where the writer is going to kiss up to you and agree with everything you say just so you will continue to follow, then this is the wrong place.
I will never do that, if i dont agree with you i am gonna say so, and me personally i would never want someone to say they agree with me about something if they dont, actually that would make me mad. Whether i like their opinion or not i would rather know the truth.
Why are so many people like that now its like if one person disagrees with them they feel like their world is about to shatter, have an opinion and own it, but dont expect everyone else in the world to agree with you, because it is a certainty that they wont.


The drawing could be better, life could not

20140715_17452220140715_203953 (1) This drawing wasnt part of any challenge, i just did it for fun.
This is me and darrell 13 years ago, i was 17 and Even then i knew he would be the love of my life, and that one day i was gonna be be his wife. Every year that passes is better than the last, im so very blessed.


Cartoon me

I want to thank my friend The Indecisive Eejit for starting these drawing challenges, i had forgotten how much i love to draw until i started doing these. So this weeks challenge was to draw cartoon versions of ourselves, it was quite a bit harder than last weeks cat in a hat challenge, but more fun also. So anyway here is mine, its not all that great, but i had fun doing it.

My poor boy

20140713_13485520140713_134910
Poor D.J. has his first case of poison oak, i feel so sorry for him, he is covered with calamine lotion. I hope he doesnt react to it the way i did when i was young, i would get completely covered and my throat and eyes would swell shut. So i am keeping a very close eye on him, and i think he is starting to get annoyed with me, lol but i imagine he’ll get over it. If ya would just be praying for him or keep him in your thoughts and hopefully this will pass soon.

It is so important to spend quality time with your children, which is exactly what i am about to do. Its movie night here, and the hubby had to work, so its just me and the kiddo’s. I cant think of a better way to spend a Saturday night. Plus I have a confession to make, I like the movie Twilight. Dont you judge me lol, because for a kid appropriate movie, its pretty good. Plus i am like a junk food addict. I hope everyone else out there has a great and safe Saturday night.

My Zombie Art

20140708_224524-1
A friend of mine from http://theindecisiveeejit.wordpress.com/ did a post and challenged everyone to draw a cartoon, im not sure if this will qualify for her challenge, because i believe she wanted it to be the cat in the hat, but i never liked the cat in the hat so instead i drew this, (I know im a big fat rule breaker) Princess jasmine from the Disney movie Aladdin, with a little bit of a zombie spin. Its kinda messy cause i did it in like 15 minutes but here it is anyway, whatcha think. You can check out her challenge here http://theindecisiveeejit.wordpress.com/2014/07/09/cartoon-craziness-challenge/
