How it all began...

Dusty and I met just after his mission in 2003. We both had our seperate little plans for our lives and then it happened-we started living our own fairy tale. Our courtship seemed to be just that for me; it was something I had always dreamed about and it turned out to be even better than I had imagined. And then ten months later, it got even better as we became three. Rhiannon has been such a joy to us and each day she brings us even more laughter. It was only another two short years and our little buddy Cy came along. A few short years after that our baby Brittain became a part of our family. There never has been, and I am sure never will be, anything in life that brings me more joy than my children and my husband. I truly feel that I am living a fairy tale (well...most days!)

That Terrible "C" Word












The above pictures don't necessarily relate to the what this paragraph will talk about but I wanted to include them.
So I have come to one of those walls. You know what I am talking about, right? A tremendously huge roadblock that the road I am traveling on has brought me to. It is one of those stone walls that has forced me to contemplate where I am at on that road and how I will move forward. There have been several things in my life that I have been struggling with and I have yet to take control and bust through them. Instead, I have conveniently figured out how to build a road AROUND them. So this week has I have come to a realization that CHANGE stinks but it is the only way I will get through this wall. I have come up with an action plan for each of these struggles and I plan to over come them. It has been an incredibly peaceful experience. As part of this experience I have learned that stating my plan out loud will help me to be accountable for all of my plans; therefore, I am telling all of you about this epiphany. And so my journey of CHANGE begins...
We have enrolled in a class called Financial Peace University to gain CONTROL of our budget.
I have signed up to be a part of an 8 week weight loss challenge to gain CONTROL of my health.
I have started a new calendaring system to gain CONTROL of my schedule.
And let me tell you...it feels so GOOD!!
CHANGE IS GOOD!!!

That's awesome and good luck! If the Financial Peace University thing is Dave Ramsey...it's awesome. We read The Total Money Makeover and wow, let's just say we've been a lot happier since. Having a little control in your life is so nice.

You'll love Dave Ramsey's program! I've never done the Financial Peace University, but I love listening to his radio show and his book is great. Good luck with all the CHANGES you're making in your life! Sounds like some good things to work on.
