Honeybee Blog Design

Have you noticed this new button on my right sidebar??

Or the tab that says Blog Design???

I am really excited to finally announce on my personal blog that Honeybee Blog Design is up and running and I would love to do a blog design for you :)

Daniel bought photoshop almost a year ago and I haven't been able to get out of it since.  After many late hours playing around in it and after watching countless YouTube tutorials I think I have finally figured out 10% of it.  HA!  Photoshop is hard stuff but man it can do some great things!!!

I hope you can visit my blog design website here!!
Here are a few blog designs I have can also see a few more in my portfolio.

If you need a blog design I would love to help you or if you know anyone that would be interested I would love for you to send them my way :)

A little weekend update

Not a long post about our weekend because I was sick Friday and most of Saturday from the yucky sore throat/cold going around. B had it first, passed it to me, and now Daniel is getting it.  Luckily with medicine around the clock we can all breathe better!!

I managed to get up enough energy to go see my baby brother go to his senior prom last night!!  Briley loved seeing Landry (my brother's girlfriend) in her "princess dress".  Of course Miss B had to take a few pictures with them!!
My Mom and her baby!!

 Uncle John with his two dates!!

Pretty couple!!

This morning we did something we have been praying about for A LONG time and tried a new church in our area.  We have been driving to our home church (where we got married, both our families go, pastor who did our wedding, Daniel's Mom and Hadley's funeral, etc.) ever since we moved out here.   Both Daniel and I have contemplated moving and trying different churches but let's be one likes change right?!?  Well God has been waving this particular church in our face all year and we finally listened and went today :)  God isn't an "I told you so kind of God" but if he was I think he might have said "I told ya so!!" to Daniel and I today :) We enjoyed it very much and we were lucky to have such a warm welcome by a sweet family, The Forgey's.  I teach their daughter Ryan this year and they also have a little boy, Matthew, who is close to Briley's age.  They are a precious family.  Going to ACF today just reiterated to me how awesome God's timing is.  I can't say today if this could be our new church home but we sure felt something special while we were there.  All we can do now is give it to God and pray...

Here is Matthew, Briley and Ryan enjoying their yummy dessert after our lunch...

29 more school days until summer...I think I can, I think I can ;)
Have a blessed week!!

Our Heavenly Hadley

I am linking up with Kelly's Korner today on her SUYL-Mom's who have lost children.

I'm thankful to Kelly for choosing this topic and allowing us to connect with other Mom's who have lost.
You can start here and read about our journey.  

We are now over a year out from the loss of our Hadley and even though the sting is less each day...the ache, the pain, the why's, the hopes lost for her future, etc. are all still very present.

I am SO thankful to have a Heavenly Father that loves us so much and will take away all of my heartache when I stand in His presence in Heaven one day with our Hadley.

We have done several things to keep Hadley's memory ALIVE and PRESENT in our family even though she is not.  I want to share a few with you in hopes you might get your own ideas to honor your sweet baby!!
 I am looking forward to connecting with other Mom's through this post...I pray each of us have a moment of PEACE today and realize we are not alone.

Easter Day!!

Here is picture overload of our Easter Day...such a wonderful day celebrating our amazing Savior and how he conquered the grave!!
We had a beautiful day with our family and friends!!

5 years!

 I will post our 2nd Easter post later today but I have to say Happy 5 year anniversary to my husband first!!  The actual day was yesterday but we celebrated it Friday night with a yummy dinner at Chuy's and then spent Saturday sleeping in, having a nice lunch, and doing a little shopping!!  Thank you to my Mom for keeping B so we could have a nice long anniversary date :)

I am so absolutely blessed to be married to Daniel.  Most marriages to not go through what we have in 5, 10, even 20 years and we have done it.  We are stronger, closer, and even more in love.  I'm so thankful that "He made you for me, and me for you."~ words said by my husband on our wedding day, April 14, 2007.
 Heading to dinner Friday night!!

Here are a few photos from 5 years ago...

Here is part of our gift to each other...the new bed.  I had no idea that for your 5 year you are supposed to give a wood gift...I love that we matched it without even knowing!!
We call this "phase 1" of our bedroom :)  We have bought our new bedspread and curtains, but we still need small accent pillows, 2 nightstands, a dresser, bookshelf, carpet to go underneath the bed, and more decor.  It is expensive to redo a room but I LOVE our new husband is pretty handy :)  He is going to work on the nightstands next!!

Happy Anniversary Daniel...I love you so much!!
