mother nature and her jokes

Recap of all the exciting things happening: jk there really isn't anything too exciting. I spent all weekend with my brother. Just when we thought we were done with snow it decided to grace us once again with it's presence. I love the fact that my parents have a wood burning stove because its so warm and cozy. Not to mention it smells sooooo good. I went and seen Olympus Has Fallen. I loved it. Even though in the beginning I jump, I think I died a little on the inside :) I can't wait to buy it. Plus Gerard Butler is an awesome actor. Though it's weird to see how far he's come and how much he's changed from The Phantom of the Opera.. (which is another one of my favorites). I spend most of my time with the little ones. So I can't help but share their cuteness.

Silly kids... my sister wears a woombie to sleep because if she doesn't she tends to wake herself up because her hands always seem to be moving.. I call it her straight jacket.


so EVERYTIME I come back to Sioux City there always seems to be some crazy weather. I guess thats anywhere really. I had earthquakes, tornados, and hurricanes in North Carolina.. so mother nature likes to mess with me . ;) some day we will come to an understanding.
until next time <3 p="">

•sugar to taste
* 2% or skim milk may be substituted; however, keep in mind that this will affect the flavor and overall texture of the finished product.


Combine water and cinnamon stick in a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. Allow to simmer for about 3 minutes. Lower heat to medium and add in oats, stirring frequently so that they don’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Once oats are softened and have absorbed most of the water, add in the milk and stir to combine well. Allow atole to return to a boil and then lower the heat once again so that it can begin to thick…

Love this! written by Tanya Amidei

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found!
