Evelynne's first trip to the beach.

I know what your thinking "What?! It's September and you're just now going to the beach!??" And you are so right to think that way because I would do the same!

However, this is my excuse and I think it's a pretty good one!

A) It's been crazy hot/humid  this summer and I don't do good in humidity and neither does Evelynne so most likely we would have not enjoyed ourselves.

B) This mama has a hubby who has worked a lot this summer and has no vehicle at the moment.

So, anyways now that I'm done explaining. I can tell you how fun my day was! Which was really fun indeed!! It's nice when your baby girl is easily occupied all day and goes to be with no complications that night! Yes, I said zero complications. She's usually a fighter when it comes to bed time because well, my baby girl doesn't like to sleep! She'd rather be running around the house.  We left our house with my mama, two younger sisters who are turning 21 on Sunday (woot woot!) and my cousin Sarah. It was so much fun and considering I don't get to see my family that much it was needed.

Evelynne actually loved the water and the waves even made her laugh!! How cute is that??
I love the Ocean! It always reminds me of Jesus and His unfailing love for us.

She also took fancy to those board walk fries!! Oh man, she loved them!!!

I will never forget.

Today 12 years ago I was eleven years old.

I remember listening to the radio not quite understanding of what was really going on.

I remember my parents sending us outside while they watched the news.

I remember just being frozen and truly terrified after my parents told us what had happened.

9/11: The 25 Most Powerful Photos  I still remember what I was doing, almost 12 years later, on that horrific day.  I will always remember the brave men and women that lost their lives that day.
 I remember what happened on 9/11 that will never be forgotten.

I haven't and will never forget the heroes we lost that day, I will never forget the loved ones we had lost, and the innocence that was taken,  I will never forget the parents who lost their children and the children who lost their parents and the heroes who still live today constantly dedicating their lives fighting for our freedom.

20 things about this lady.

                                            20 things about me!! 
                                               (Because I know you're curious)

1. Growing up I've always wanted to be a country singer.. But then I changed my mind when I realized I really couldn't be a stay at home mama if I traveled to sing to millions of fans. So it was then when I decided to be a worshiper for The Lord and a stage performer for my kids.. And I must say I'm a pretty darn good one! She gets a thrill out of me every time! ;)

2. I was born at the same hospital Toby Mac and Michael Tate was born at.. True story!

3.  one  of my  ancestors was a Patawatamian Princess.. It's my Indian tribe which means "people of the fire"
I am also some  German.

4. My Great Great Grandfather and his brother owned a circus called "The Haag Brothers" But unfortunately due to the "Great Depression" They had to shut it down.

5. I grew up on a farm with horse's, goats, chickens you name it! Well, except cows though I used to want one and call her bell.. I used to shoot chickens and gut them for dinner..

6. I sung in 3 Talent shows  I was 11, 14 and 17. And won 1st place for the one I was in when I was 14.

7. I was Home schooled my whole life. And would love to home school my daughter as well.. That's if she likes it ;)

8. I am in the process of working on a devotional/book!! EEEK! I'll have more on that in the future.

9. I'm a huge believer of dreaming big! Because We have a God who has Big Dreams for us.

10. My Nick name is Fruitsnacks smiles. I got the nick name from a formal manager because I love fruitsnacks and I smiled a lot!

11. I used to work at Panera Bread. And I still feel like that place is my home away from home.

12. I once made Rebecca St James a Decaf Latte.

13. I'm starting to get baby fever.. pretty bad..

14. Back when I was a teenager I used to go to nursing homes and sing for the elderly. I'd love to get back to doing it because I dearly miss the smiles on their faces.

15. I tried a cigarette once when I was 11.. Thought it was the worst thing ever and I hadn't had a desire to do it since.

16. I didn't get a cell phone until I was 18..

17. I love journals with lines.

18. I wrote my first song when I was eleven about a fly who had to die.. It was a rock/death metal I believe.. I think I've come a long way since then ;)

19.I am not as organized as I want to be.

20.  I'm learning how to say coffee in every language so when I do travel the world I will survive!! :)

I was gonna put on here that I loved coffee and lattes... But I'm pretty sure you can already guess that's a fact for me just by reading my about page haha!

I'd love to know 20 things (or more) about you!! If you choose to do the same I would love to come check it out! Just leave a link in the comments.

                                           Much love to you, darlings!!
