It's Been a WHILE

It's been a long time. I feel like I say that everytime I post something on here.
There's been a lot going on lately, I know everyone that follows me (all 6 of you) so I don't want to be repetitive. Yes, I am pregnant...4 months along. It happened kinda fast and took me by a whirlwind. I have had mixed feelings about it, but overall I am excited. I think once I get past the initial shock (which takes a while) and all the SICKNESS...I will be ok.

One thing I am definitely ready for is...FAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Summer...you are annoying. And hot. And I have been sitting inside all season getting more pale and throwing up. I'm ready to move on.

I tried to make my background look a little more autumn-y...but this is the best I could do.

I'm ready to bust out all my old lady decorations! YEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

And I want Halloween candy and a Thanksgiving turkey sandwich. Hallelujah and Amen.

Out of Control

I hate the feeling of being out of control. Why is it so hard just to "think about something else" when the only thing you can think of is something you can't do anything about? If wish things made more sense sometimes...I know God always has a plan and a reason for everything but it would be easier to just live it out if I knew what was going to happen. I guess I need to work on my faith.

Current Raves

Here are some of my current loves:
Yankee Candles. They have this "pink sands" candle at work, and I always light it. It smells like sweet tarts.
Swimming. I LOVE swimming. Too bad it's cloudy today...
Rain. I need to see some of this. Soon. Maybe these clouds will bring some...hopefully
Nail Polish. I have been spending some serious $$$ on this stuff. I go through phases with painting my nails. It's a love/hate relationship.
Grilling. This has become a Monday night tradition...and I love it! It looks like our neighbors have caught on. This week they had a grill-off with Johnny.
Green Tea. I drink this stuff every day, which is good...because it's so good for you. It has a calming effect as well. I add honey to it...which is something else I am currently obsessed with
Fresh green beans. You can get these for so cheap at the grocery store. I like to steam them and then sautee them with olive oil, butter and garlic. I top them off with rosemary and thyme. Yumminess.
English muffins with butter and honey. Breakfast of champions.
I am always obsessed with these.
Cookbooks. My collection is getting outta control. I love it.
Pawn Stars. This is MY SHOW. I love it. I also love Chumlee.
Salty chocolate/caramel. Yep.

This was fun.

Going with the flow

Sometimes I get so caught up in "what if" that I end up not really living my life. I will always stay in the same place because I fear losing control. Once you give up that control to God and just go with the flow, things seem to make more sense. In order to live, you just need to start living. God will work out the rest.

Home alone on a Friday night. Johnny is out playing at Jackrabbits. I HATE that place. I am so not into that scene. Or any scene really. I watched Sleepless In Seattle and then a Foo Fighters documentary. Now I'm drinking green tea and...blogging. Very cliche' I need to make descisions and stick with them. I keep going back and forth about certain things. I hate being indecisive. Mehhhhhhhh I need to think think think I need a vacation Yes and Amen

Create Your Own Easter Basket

I gave my blog a cheery makeover. I decided to add an easter basket to top it off.

My mom used to get us "Easter purses" instead of baskets and put all off our goodies in them. They would always match our Easter outfits.
These are the best jelly beans you can get.

Of course I need this.

And some glitter eggs...

My favorite Easter candy of all time

These are a must

A fully loaded Sunday School flannel board...

Yes, I want a Honey Baked Ham in my Easter basket.
She would always include a disposable camera too. Fun fun Now I am all ready for Easter!!!

Green Tea & Honey

I'm having a "tea break" at work.
I'm on my pain pills right now so I am in a decent enough mood to blog. I don't feel like writing about my surgery. I had it. It's over. I'm recovering. The end.

I want this to be a "favorite things" post.

(decaf) Coffee
Powdered french vanilla coffee creamer. Tastes & smells like marshmallows.
Fresh Market
Free Samples
Vanilla Steamer from Sbux (tastes like ice cream)
Yard sales
Shopping sprees
Tuesday night T.V. (Glee & Raising Hope!)
Cooking & Baking
Family trips
Mexican food
Jesus (HE IS FIRST!)
Books about Heaven
Honey Baked Ham
Nice weather

Ok, tea break is over! Gotta get back to work! :)

I am currently feeling at peace, finally.
I had a breakthrough at the Perry Stone conference this past weekend.
Now I know why the devil was trying so hard to take me down last week. He didn't want me there.
I even got REALLY sick all weekend, plus I was having the endo pain.
But I pushed through and went...and I feel like a new person.
At one point Perry had us all stand up and pray, and repeat the word "peace" over and over again.
Turns out the the devil didn't win after all...what he though would bring me down just gave me a bigger breakthrough.
And being sick just kept me home for a full day to read his new book, which is very life changing.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

2011 Needs to get better, quick

So, I can't say that 2011 has been my favorite year so far.
Another death in the family, which leads to family drama
Job drama, life drama, marriage drama, church drama, people drama
Been to the dentist 3 times, going on 4
Been to a number of doctors to try and diagnose what they now think is endometriosis, which can only really be diagnosed and treated during surgery...
Pain, literally. Ouch.

I feel like my life is a complete wreck right now. I don't know what the deal is. I was ready to move on from 2010...but now I'm having second thoughts.

This needs to change. I am over this.
I need to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
This has been the longest tunnel I have ever been stuck in.

Jesus, help

PASTIC JOY! (Don't tell my husband)

I was nominated by Trish and Jessica. Don't tell Johnny. Tehehehe. Here we go:

Mark Ruffalo. OH YEAH.
Drummer from Kings of Leon. I don't even know his name. It's a new crush. He's a drummer with dark hair and thick rimmed glasses. That's all I have to say. (If only everyone in that band had different personalities...even him)
DUH. I'm sure this is an illegal crush. Is he 18 yet?? LOLOLOL
Robert Deleo from Stone Temple Pilots. OMG. Please go watch their video "Hello It's Late". He plays piano and sings back up. I can't watch it without drooling. HELLO.
This crush goes back to my teen years. Johnny Rzeznik of The Goo Goo Dolls. HOLY POOPOO. He's POLISH.

Johnny: if you read this blog...SORRY!!! HAHAHAHA!!!!

I love the rain. Most people seem to get depressed by it, but that's not how it is for me. It makes me happy. I love the look of overcast. It reminds me of being younger...I guess cause I used to love it then too. I only like sunny days when I have to be outside.

I'm having a cup of coffee right now, (decaf of course) and I have a confession to make. I like Foldgers instant coffee better than the decaf via they have at Starbucks. My supplier would kill me if she heard this :O
Italian roast is too bitter for my taste. I like smooth flavor. Haha. That sounds cheesy.

Anyways, I am actually doing a little better these days. I hung out with people last night, and old Tiffany started coming back to life. I was being my crazy old self. I want to do that more often. I missed having friends.

I'm starting to see a little more hope for this year, I hope it stays that way. I don't want a repeat of the last few months. I'm excited about some things, and I am going to keep an ongoing list just to keep myself optimistic.

Olustee Festival
Savannah Trip
Yard Sales
Valentines Day
Perry Stone Conference @ church
More trips to IKEA

Well, I'm off to get ready to have lunch with some of the fam...today is mentoring. I love having Mondays off :)

Here's a blast from the past:

Thursday, January 6, 2011


So...something crazy happened last night and I feel compelled to blog about it.

Yesterday I was have really bad (worse than normal) heart palpitations ALL DAY LONG.
They lasted through the night, and I was scared. I was crying, freaking out, having panic attacks...etc. At one point I laid on the ground panting and had Johnny pray and read scriptures over me. I calmed down and was ok for a little while. I woke up at 2 am after having stressful dreams that made no sense. I was having heart palpitations again.

I prayed...cried...freaked out. I woke Johnny up and had him pray for me because apparently God was not listening to me. I got out of bed and had some water, and then a bowl of cereal. I went upstairs and fell asleep in the guest bedroom.

I had a dream.

I was in my old house that I grew up in. I was in the kitchen looking at a window. There was a large black and red spider with claws like a crab. He was just there, staring at me, almost like he was trying to figure out when to attack. I freaked for a little while before coming to my senses and found some bug spray. I chased the thing around the house, spraying it over and over again. It finally died. I was soooo happy and relieved. I went out the front door and saw my sister and mom having a Sunday School class for kids. It was bright and sunshine-y. I got extremely excited and grabbed some puppets and bible looking dolls and ran out there with them.

That was the end of the dream.

Tonight I looked up the meanings of this dream and was amazed.

House - Person or family; individual (me)
Kitchen - HEART (that freaked me out)
Spider - Evil
Black - Sin, grief, ignorance, mourning, gloomy, evil
Red - Passion, emotion, anger, hatred
Window - An unguarded opening for a thief to enter (WOW.)

I woke up and the palpitations were gone. I have not had any more at all. It turns out that God did hear me after all (duh, I learned that in Sunday School ;)), and they (the prayers) were used as weapons (the bug spray) to KILL IT. Bye bye, spider. My window has been shut.
