Getting to know YOU

MannLand5 is hosting another Getting to know YOU blog post

You game?!

To play..Grab the questions..copy them..answer them..then come back here and link on up..

The questions..

1. Would you rather bungee jump or sky dive?
Do I have to do either one, because I would much rather stay on the bridge or in the plane

2. When using a public restroom to you squat over the seat or sit?
I wipe the seat and sit if I feel its "safe", otherwise hoover if it's really nasty 

3. Favorite flower?

4. Pedicure or manicure?
If I have to choose I will take a Pedicure every time, but why can't I have both ;-)

5. How many siblings do you have?
Three, my parents were very organized in their child bearing, either that or it was my father's flight schedule.  They had 2 boys, 2 girls . . . . . boy, girl, boy, girl . . . . . February, December, February, December.  Our current ages are 47 (ted), 45 (april), 43 (jimmy, he hates when I call him that he prefers James), and ME the baby 41

UMMMMM, NO WAY, why would I the toilet is RIGHT THERE!!

7. Bikini, tankini, or one piece?
Tankini or One Piece, what ever covers me  up the most

8. Where do you hate to shop at, but go there anyway?
Walmart because it's always so crowded and if you want something you have to go through EVERYTHING else to get to it.  BUT, they do have the lowest prices most of the time, so it is a necessary EVIL.  PLUS I really hate that they are PUSHING their GREAT VALUE brand which I am finding is more and more NOT a GREAT VALUE.  Oops did I get on a soap box there?????

Head on over to MannLand5  hook up your answers to Getting to know You.

Interview with O.C. Styles 100 followers Celebration Giveaway #1 starts March 1st

Tomorrow kicks off our one month Celebration of 100 Followers and I would like to introduce you to our first giveaway sponsor O.C.Styles.  I love when someone uses their talents to produce something beautiful and functional, and at Etsy you can find many designers of handmade products.  I was first introduced to O.C. Styles through one of my blogging friends (Mellissa over a Getting all my Ducks in a Row) when she had a giveaway during the holidays last year.  O.C. Styles makes handmade Accessories & Purses, and for our first giveaway O.C. Styles is donating a Java Bling to one of my lucky winners.

This giveaway will run from tomorrow March 1st - 7th
the winner will be announced on March 8th

So without further ado please meet shop owner:
Michelle Bousley

How did you get started on Etsy? 
I saw Etsy in many of the searches that I had looked for online & stumbled upon them. I noticed that it was a handmade arena that I should consider & I really love it. I am so glad I decided to be a part of Etsy.

How did you decide on the name for your shop? 
I live in Orange County, which is a melting pot of many styles, cultures, ideas and fashions. I was inspired by that, and decided to represent my inspiration.

Where do you get inspiration for the items in your shop?
I get inspiration from so many sources, such as fabric, the outdoors, paint colors, textures, my 4 year old daughter, my family members and just paying attention to fashion forecasts, trends & everyday items.

What item is your personal favorite?
Well, that's a bit difficult to decide, but I love making all of the items in my store, but I really love the purses, especially the pleated clutch with the kiwi bow & crystal & the Java Blingz hot drink sleeves.

Do you make custom orders? Yes, I love doing custom orders. It's one of the joys of my job & of being on Etsy. I really connect with my customers & can help them in a process that they may not receive in a regular retail environment.

How many years have you been creating?
I have been creating since I was a little girl, but I have been sewing since I was 15 years old, so, for a long while. I love learning a new technique and the buzz of the sewing machine. I feel so accomplished when I finish and item. It brings such joy to my day.

How long has your Etsy shop been open? 
I have had an Etsy store since July, 2008.

Are you running any current promotions or coupons? 
I run various promotions based on the time of year & the approaching holiday or season. Currently, I have a sale on Java Blingz a discounted price on 5 or 10 & I also have a 10 percent Bridal discount for 5 or more purchased purses and Free Shipping to USA/CANADA on Luggage Handle Grips.

What is my biggest hurdle?
I guess that would be trying to anticipate the fabric prints & designs that will sell best. I also find it challenging to keep certain fabrics available, as they are sometimes discontinued & I have no control over what prints are kept in stock by the manufacturers. Also, being able to have enough time to do all the things I want to do to in a day can be overwhelming at times, but being super organized helps to minimize that.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I would like to thank you for interviewing me & taking the time out of your busy schedule. Thank you for choosing OC STYLES, & I hope to see you in my shop very soon.

Can you guess what I have been doing?

I have been working since yesterday to rid my home of  . . . . .
 germs from the stomach bug.

Today I will hopefully finish the job, disinfecting my home of this nasty germ that has attacked our family for more then a week . . . . . right after bronchitis had attacked us.  I am breaking out ever cleaner I can and scrubbing every surface.  I guess it's spring cleaning time early, HA. I am sorry, I am not up for hire :-)  

I know this nasty thing is attacking so many homes across America. So many of my local family and friends have this nasty thing, and even some of my blogging friends in other states.  I pray everyone gets well soon and that for those it has skipped (me for one) will not get it. 

Hopefully the weather will turn, the germs will stay away, and life will return to happy active boy madness soon.

Show Us your Life - Collections

This Friday Kelly over at Kelly's Korner has Show Us your Life - Collections
Well I am a little late posting because of illness in our home, 
but I wanted to share my favorite collections with you.

I started collecting antique books when I was in my late teens, I know kinda young to have a passion for old books.  BUT, I walked into a really great book store, you know, the kind with old wood shelves stuffed with great books and antique well worn upholstered chairs inviting you to sit and read at your leisure.  My first book was a 1912 copy of Polyanna (the blue book in the middle of the shelf with water stains on the binding).

This is my collection of antique Winnie the Pooh books

The other thing that I collect is spoons from around the world.  This collection began with two spoons that I picked out myself as a souvenir when we lived in England and visited the Queen's crown jewels housed in the Jewel House of the Tower of London .  After that my father bought a spoon for me when ever he traveled outside of the United States and I collected other spoons from the US and around the world whenever I traveled.
This is my collection from outside of the United States
My favorite ones, besides my first two the long twisted silver stem with a nested stone from Brazil and the Totem Pole from Canada.

And this is my collection from within the United States
this is one of my favorites from Williamsburg, VA
from Epcot Center, Walt Disney World, Orlando, FL
Finally a spoon given to me by a lady in my church when I was growing up in Connecticut, it isn't from a state, but I have a feeling it is special and has some value.  This spoon is a John F. Kennedy commemorative spoon.

One day I hope to have a coffee table with a glass top and inset display case that I can put all these spoons out for family and friends to enjoy.  I have never really liked the wall mounted spoon display rack, so one day the spoons will make it out of my hope chest and on display.  Until then my spoons sit safely tucked away for me to pull out on rainy days and enjoy, and one day show off to my boys.

Do you collect anything?  If so what?  It isn't too late, take some pictures and link up over at Kelly's Korner.

Fill in the blank Friday

Lauren over at the little things we do has a great activity every Friday of Filling in the blanks, so this week I thought I would join in on her fun.
1. When I'm nervous..I get quiet because my stomach is in knots..

2. My favorite item in my closet is..a summer dress I found last year for $19.99 at Cato!

3. Drinking wine..is not something I do because I don't really like the taste of most wines.

4. My favorite childhood memory..going to the London Zoo with my family and the "event" we saw at the rhino exhibit!

5. Something you may not know about me is..I lived in England for almost 2 years and went to an American School with the initials A.S.S. (yes there had to be some Brits laughing up there sleeves on that one) I sure hope that school has changed it's name since then.

6. A true friend..is someone who has beliefs similar to yours but isn't afraid to tell you when they don't, someone you can talk to with COMPLETE honesty, someone who KNOWS how to make you smile, and someone who makes you feel better in your worst moments even if its just through their presence.

7. Something I hope people think of when they think of me is..there is a women who loves the Lord .

Won't you Read to Me? - Counting Cows

So it has been a few weeks since I have been able to do feeling well enough to post a Won't Your Read to Me? Wednesday.  So now that I am a smidge, and I do mean SMIDGE stronger, I thought I would post one of our NEW favorite books that we read to the boys A LOT.

This is Counting Cows by Michelle Medlock Adams, illustrated by Mark Meyers.  For a little book, it sure does pack a lot of character and fun within its 26 pages.  You can buy this book at Amazon for $7.99 and it will be worth every penny and the shipping too.

Michelle Medlock Adams is actually one of my favorite childrens book authors.  I was first introduced to her books a couple years ago by another mom at my son's preschool, she told me Michelle wrote a series of books titled "What is . . .?" (fill in the blank with Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.)  This series of books was written from a Christian perspective to help explain these holidays to young children.  I will blog about this series of books another time.  For today we are looking at the newest of Michelle's books Counting Cows.

Counting Cows is a cute little book about a young boy who is tired of counting sheep before he goes to sleep . . . . . so this night he chooses to count things that go MOO instead.  The rhyme and rhythm of this book is easy to read and a LOT OF FUN!  My boys love for me to read it over and over again and it is perfect for my 4 year old who is working on his counting.  The part that makes my boys laugh as we read the book, is the dancing cows.  Did she just type DANCING COWS????? YES I DID.  It's called the Moo Cow Boogaloo, and you will have so much fun reading about it, that you may end up doing the Moo Cow Boogaloo with your kids too.

FUN, FUN, FUN and the text is simple enough that your emerging reader will find this easy to read as well.  The book is geared toward 3-5 year olds.

Wordless Wednesday - Trying to catch a GOOD breath

Falling in love . . . . . . . with YUMMY pink clothes

OK so by now you KNOW I am nuts for PINK, I love it in decorating, I love it in accessories, and I love it in clothes that I wear.  Well yesterday Talbots spring catalog came in the mail and BOY HOWDY did they catch me with the cover.  The cover wasn't even a picture of clothes, it was a beautiful grouping of peonies (one of my FAVORITE flowers).  The cover was just so romantic, soft, and PINK, I wish I could show it to you but they don't have an image of it on their website.

Don't get me wrong, although I love Talbots, I am not a fan of their pricing and I don't shop their merchandise full price.  I am a Let's Find a DEAL, kinda person.  So anyway, as I turn through the pages of the catalog I find that they aren't just kidding around with the PINK peonies on the cover, PINK is a part of MANY of their pieces this season and I am THRILLED.  Here are just a few of the outfits that match my style that caught my eye.
(NO WAY) but love the color and style 
Price HOT, but styled with Jeans, totally COOL
Pleated Split-Neck Tee $49.50 I can totally see buying this especially if I can find a coupon.  
The style, shape and color would be perfect for me and flattering to my neck and face.
Again NO WAY would I pay those prices, but I will mimic the style if I can find it.
Totally would buy the cardigan but I can find a camisole with shelf bra for less.
 Floral Bouquet Pencil Skirt $89.50
The retro print of this skirt is what I love, pencil skirts aren't that flattering on me, but WOW the print.
I love how they have it styled HERE but I couldn't capture the image.
This bold print is totally me and the style is so retro
Traditional style and will be a classic to your spring/summer wardrobe forever, but OUCH the price.
Totally above my shoe budget, but would get them on sale in a heart beat because they make a GREAT quality shoe and hold up for a long time.

OK so by going through all of these beautiful PINK images, you can tell that my fashion taste is FOR SURE outside of my wallets reach . . . . . . . but you can't blame a girl for drooooooooling

Who am I?

Lately I have been having a bit of a pity party because for the past 20 days my house has been attacked by sickness.  Little Jon started us off with a double ear infection, shortly followed by Davey and I getting bronchitis and my husband a terrible cold, and now I have two little ones with the stomach virus from  H. .  E . .  Double Hockey Sticks.  My poor boy Davey was up from 1 ish until 5:30 am pouring his poor guts out into the porcelain king only to continue again when he finally woke up around 8:15.

But just a little bit ago I was doing my daily Google Reader Role and found this post from Stephanie at Hope in a Boys World, one of my favorite blogs to read.  She wrote about a girl she used to know named Christi who is truly walking in the JOY of God's peace and presence in the face of something that would destroy most.  I felt so ashamed of my "Poor Me" attitude and cried as I read and then watched the video.  So I wanted to share Stephanie's post with you and ask you to pray for Christi, her precious princesses, and her wonderful Man of God.  And I wanted to ask you if you are showing God's grace, JOY, and peace when your under attack?  If not, maybe like me, you will be inspired by Christi's story and touched by the video of her family.

"About 7 or 8 years ago, I met a girl named Christi. She and her husband had moved to Chattanooga to be a part of Calvary Chapel. He is a pastor there. They have 4 young daughters. I watched her. She had so much grace and there was just something about her that was captivating. I remember watching her with her newborn and wanting to be like her. She was so beautiful and gentle-so full of joy. Jesus was obvious in her life- His glory on display through her.
I used to think, "I need a green jacket like that so I can look beautiful like she does". I would buy a green jacket but didn't look as beautiful as she did. I would think, "I want jeans like that so I can look as beautiful as she does", but, again, it didn't work. What I didn't realize was that it wasn't her clothes that made her so beautiful. She IS naturally beautiful...
but it was Jesus in her that was so amazing.
She knew Him in a way that I didn't.
HE is Who is so captivating.
It wasn't her green jacket.
About 4 years ago, Christi found out she had breast cancer. She had to have aggressive chemo and radiation. She had a double mastectomy and horrible surgeries. She had no hair but she didn't wear a wig. She was still beautiful and still radiating Jesus- now even more. I remember her husband saying she read the book of Philippians so much that it was falling out of her Bible.
She never stopped trusting God. She never stopped praising His name. She never stopped worshipping Him. Many lives were touched and changed by their faith.
Well, 4 years passed and her beautiful hair grew back. Their lives had returned to normal and cancer was "in the past". Until recently. :(
It is back. It is in her lung and her brain and it is not good. Please pray for this family. I wish I knew Christi more because I want to learn from her. I want to love and trust God the way she does. It is mind-blowing how steadfast she and her husband have remained no matter what is thrown at them.
She has taught me so much even though we aren't close friends. I just watch. As does the world.
Pray for a miracle.
We are asking God to supernaturally heal her. Pray for God's grace to cover their family. They are the REAL DEAL and they are going through a trial like most of us will never know.
I don't understand why God has allowed this tragedy in their lives but you cannot help but see His beauty being poured out through their family."
(read the photographers words HERE and view the video he made below)
Hug your husband. Hug your children.
Draw nearer to Jesus.
Pray for Christi.

Blast from the Past

 This picture was taken in 1971 after we had moved from California to North Carolina.
L to R: My oldest brother Ted, sister April, and to my right my brother Jimmy  

This particular picture was taken at my grandparents home on Rucker Street in Greensboro, North Carolina.  The 3 bedroom house in the background was the home my father grew up with his parents and four siblings.  Directly hehind us sits Betsy, she was our green station wagon and she was our car until I was well into my teens.  Betsy saw more road time then any poor car should (we traveled a lot) but she was faithful and true and I remember starring on a radio program and singing my heart out in the back end near the big automatic roll down window. (yes we are talking pretend here folks)

Show us Your Life - Show Us Your Ministry

Today over at Kelly's blog Kelly's Korner the Show Us Your Life activity for today is Show Us Your Ministry, more specifically the ministry we do through our blog.

I started this blog for many reasons, but one of the main reasons was to journal about our battered road to Victory over Infertility (CLICK HERE to read all my posts on Infertility).  At first I wrote about our infertility just so people could understand who I am today because of where we have been as a couple over the past 8 1/2 years of our marriage.  I just wanted to provide my readers a little window into who I was, but what started as a "getting to know you" kind of post, turned into private emails asking me for more details, medication questions, prayer requests, and "I've been there" support. 

One night I realized that God was calling me to use my blog and facebook connections to help other woman like myself, who battled with infertility and the DEEP OVERWHELMING desire to have a child of their own.  So I continued posting about my feelings of our ongoing battle with infertility, my dreams of PINK, and desire to try ONE MORE TIME.  Some say we aren't battling infertility if we have successfully carried a baby to full term and that child is living and healthy.  Some say we especially don't get to call ourselves a couple battling with infertility if we were successful getting pregnant a SECOND TIME, and that child also had a healthy delivery.  BUT I DISAGREE, if you or someone you know can not get pregnant on their own without medical assistance, then you battle with infertility and all the emotional baggage that comes with that journey. 

We have been blessed twice to have full term pregnancies that resulted with healthy baby boys placed in our arms in or around the date they were do.  I have never had a miscarriage, so I don't have the emotional scares that that difficult situation creates nor have I carried a child full term only to have it not survive.  I do not claim in any way, that our struggle to have children was harder then anyone else, but FOR US it was and still remains a very difficult and gut wrenching battle, a physically taxing battle, and one that forever effects my body each time I go through the process.

HERE IS THE HONEST TRUTH, I am not FIT for pregnancy.
I am not the right AGE for pregnancy
I am not the right WEIGHT for pregnancy
I suffer from irregular cycles
I suffer from cysts on my ovaries
I suffer from anovulatory bleeding cycles
I suffer from endometriosis
I suffer from high blood pressure 
I suffer from reflux
I suffer from irrital bowl syndrome 
I suffer from nash syndrome (brought on by my weight, years of migraine medications, and the medications that helped me to get pregnant)
I am not statistically, physically, or medically a good candidate for pregnancy

BUT MY GOD doesn't deal in statistics, My GOD deals with me one on one, where I am and according to HIS PLAN and that is the message I want to get across.  I KNOW that by the worlds standards I should be grateful for what I have, and I am, and stop trying to have another child.  However, recently I came face to face with my own lack of faith in another child being a part of God's plan.  Once I was diagnosed with anovulatory bleeding cycles my husband and I kept praying for God to bless the medical process for us to get pregnant.  WE NEVER thought to ask God to bless us IN SPITE OF my medical conditions and allow us to get pregnant on our own.  It wasn't until recently, when my pastors wife actually prayed over me and she prayed, "Father, I ask you to touch Laura's body and allow her to conceive naturally. If it is your desire to bless them again with a child Lord, bless Laura and David with this precious miracle so that her body doesn't have to be attacked by the effects of the medication they have used before."  I began bawling my eyes out, because after years of not getting pregnant on our own and finally finding a medication that helped us to conceive I saw IT as our SURE THING and not GOD.  OH, how could I display such lack of faith in my heavenly Father.  

So that is my message of Victory over Infertility, I want others to be encouraged by our journey.  We don't know if God is going to bless us one more time, but if He chooses to He can!  I plan to remain in the center of His plan for me, for us, for our future.  There will be days when I fall outside of the circle, but my Father will tenderly offer His hand to help me stand up and get back into the center of it again.

Infertility clinics have undergone great scrutiny in the wake of Octo-Mom and there for have put into place stricter criteria for the kinds of patients they will help to conceive in order to protect themselves.  So the medications that worked for us (Gonal-F and Ovidrel injections) may not be available.  We couldn't afford IVF and so our doctor recommended the closest option available that was still covered by our insurance.  If you want to read more about our journey CLICK HERE or you would like me to add you to my prayer list for Victory over Infertility (left column), please leave a comment or email me at lcole@ec.rr.com

Saying Grace in a Resturant

One of my husband's uncles shared this beautiful story with me via emails and I know many of you will be touched by it too.
Last week, I took my children to a restaurant. My six-year-old son asked if he could say grace.

As we bowed our heads he said, 'God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food , and I would even thank you more if Mom gets us ice cream for dessert. And Liberty and justice for all! Amen!'

Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman remark, 'That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to p ray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!'

Hearing this, my son burst into tears and asked me, 'Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?'
As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table. He winked at my son and said, 'I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer.'

'Really?' my son asked.

'Cross my heart,' the man replied.

Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), 'Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes.'

Naturally, I bought my kids ice cream at the end of the meal. My son stared at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember the rest of my life.

He picked up his sundae and, without a word, walked over and placed it in front of the woman. With a big smile he told her, 'Here, this is for you. Ice cream is good for the soul sometimes; and my soul is good already.'

The End

I love this story!
Sometimes, we all need some ice cream.

I hope God sends you some Ice Cream today!
