A Last Look at 2017

Friday, December 29, 2017

This year has been a big one.  This time last year, Adam was still in grad school, didn't have a job, we were in an apartment, we were still in Texas, and only had one kid. Fast forward one year, and this is a snapshot of our lives now: 

- Adam received a shiny graduate diploma
- We now live in the lovely Salt Lake Valley in Utah
- We live in a house with room to run, a backyard and a clothesline
- Adam has a good job (glory be! This is SUCH a blessing!)
- We have three beautiful children (did I mention THREE children?!?)

This has been quite a year.  Because of this, my life will look very different in the New Year, when Adam goes back to work, and I am on my own with three little people every day.  This has made me pretty nervous (because sometimes they all end up screaming for me/at me at the same time.  So, I have a few different plans for this next year, to help me still feel like a human, for trying to keep my life in order, and for coping with everyday life.  I will share those in a few days, but today, I wanted to do a little review of 2017, just for fun.  


First our 'sugar-free month' in January 


My 'Curated Closet' posts where I worked on finding my perfect closet (still working, but feeling pretty good about where it is at. If... I can get back into my jeans).


Our move to Utah (sort of in two parts)


Finding out and announcing we were pregnant with twins and many subsequent twin pregnancy posts (I really do look enormous here, don't I?  You sort of lose sight of that in the day to day.  No wonder my jeans still don't fit!)


Having the Twins, who are healthy, lovely and are totally wonderful.  A healthy pregnancy and babies has been SUCH a blessing for us!

It has been a wild and crazy year, and really so so good.  We feel very blessed and look forward to this next year!  Thanks for sticking with me in my lack of posting!  I am so grateful for all of you!

Happy New Year!

  1. Most time it’s good to share problem. WHO KNOWS?? My names are Aylen Melsin I suffered Adhesion that damaged my uterus and this is really what I think you should understand. I finally was able to conceive a child of my own after 7 years without any issue. This really was the worst thing ever. It was a miracle that indeed shocked me and my husband. Because I was left with no option but to use a Herbal Health Concoction that was prepared from Roots Herbs to help the Immune. I got to find out a solution through online search and I talked to the direct source about my problem. His name is Ahiga and he told me how some necessary few herbs will be useful to women’s health, to cure Fibroid, tubes blockage recovery, So I gave him a chance to do what knows best. He sent the Herbs to me and gave simple instruction on method of use. After few weeks of usage I began to feel dizzy, vomiting, tender breast, a friend of mine told me all this are sings of pregnancy. I went for check up behold I was confirmed pregnant. I'm glad God did this with the Roots Herbs of Ahiga. You can get in-touch with Ahiga via Email (ahigahealing@ yahoo. com) really just felt like dropping this, not for all but for those who want to start having children of their own.

Today has being the most happiest day of my life after 5 year of sadness and sorrow without being with the one i love, i tried all my possible best to make sure i make my lover happy but it never seems to work out well it was like am doing everything in vain but all thanks to Dr.Voodoo for coming to change all my worries and sadness to Joy. I knew the great man when i read some wonderful reviews about Him how he has helped a lots of people on there relationship problem i was reading a magazine which then i saw great testimonies as well which then i decided not to waste time. He told me not to worry that he assures me that within 3day everything would be sorted out i believed Dr.Voodoo so much because i believe he can't fail me and i sent him all my details. Truly Dr.Voodoo never failed me,my husband who left me for good a year come back to me. My husband and i have been living contentedly since this spell caster reunited us together with his love spells. Thank you so so so much Dr.Voodoo for your powerful spells. Expressions are not sufficient to say thank you, here is his email address(voodoospell10@gmail.com) or call (+2348135790702) for more information or WhatsApp with him.....

Last year December, My lover was cheating on me and was not also give me the attention that a man should give to a woman,And really that was troubling my mind and tearing my heart apart to the extent that i was not concentrating in the office the way i use to before the break up by my lover.And before that incident,I always see how my boss use to love his wife so much. I was binging to think that i was not doing the right thing to him that will make him love me forever,So i really gathered my courage and went to my boss wife office to ask her the secret that made her husband love her so dearly,In the first place she refused in telling me,She asked me why i am asking her such a question,That if is it not normal for every man to love his wife.I told her the reason that made me ask her about this question,That my lover started cheating on me lately,When i knelt down before her for her to see my seriousness in this issue that i went to ask her,She opened up to me by telling me that i should not tell anybody about what she want to tell me,The wife to my boss started to say to me that she used a very powerful spell on his husband to love her,And the spell that she used is harmless, But the spell is just to make him love her and never to look for any other woman except her. I QUICKLY ASK HER HOW DID SHE GET TO KNOW THIS GREAT,POWER,DURABLE AND PERFECT WORK SPELL CASTER,she said that a friend of hers also introduce her to him. Then i also ask her how i can meet with this spell caster.SHE SAID EVERYTHING TO ME,THAT THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER IS Dr. AZEN TEMPLE.My next question to her was how can i get this wonderful spell caster,She said she is going to give me the email of the spell caster for me to contact him for my problem,Really she gave to me this spell caster email and i contacted him and explained all to him,And after every thing that needed to be done by the spell caster, In the next two days, My lover that hated me so much came to house begging for forgiveness and i was so glad that i have finally gotten my heart desire..I was so grateful to this spell caster for what he has done for my life.. So i made a promise to him that i will always continue telling the world about his wonderful work towards me and also to other that came to you before and also the people that will also get to you from my story that i narrated online now..I will want to say to the entire world that you should not cry over noting again, That there is a great man that has been helping individuals to restore there Joy and smile in there faces !! The direct email to get this man is :[azentemple@gmail.com]or what'sapp +2349038299828 ,This is what i want to tell you all out there,That is thinking that all hope is lost ok..Thanks
