Excuses

 Sometimes I feel that my life has become all about excuses. I don't have time, I don't have space, I have had three kids.........oh I could go on and on and on about why I can't do it. Over the last 5 years I have really let a lot go. My body and my house have certainly taken the top of that list by storm. Recently I realized that I had been using excuses so long that I was believing them! Yep I was believing everything I had been telling myself the last 5 years. I am not fat and out of shape because I have three kids, it is because I eat to much and do to little! My house is not trashed because I have no space, I have three kids or I don't have enough time, although those things aren't a help. It is because I don't make the effort anymore, well not like I use to at least. While I am not sure what caused me to get to this point I'm starting to work myself out of it slowly. Breaking the cycle of excuses is not easy though, I struggle with it every day. But taking 2-3 bags of trash out of your house every day and turning around and seeing it still a mess means I let them get out of hand! I use to have one of those homes people walked into and complimented, now I'm ashamed to have anyone even come to my door. I know many of you are probably just cringing right now thinking of what my house must look like and no it isn't pretty, don't worry hoarders will not be coming to my house, but I am a work in progress and one day I will be the person I deserve to be ;O). Next time you make an excuse just think about it, think about whether it is really true. Things can always be different it just takes a little effort and support. I've had to learn that the hard way as most people do huh.lol I hope you are having a great Thursday remember all the blessings you have around you and hold them tight.

I heard someone say recently that nothing will change if you don't change something... I took that to heart and have quit making excuses not to do my morning exercise routine before everyone gets up.

Good luck to you, and me, on our positive change. :)

I agree. I make up excuses all the time. I have now vowed to stick on track with my plan. Some days will work, others days won't but I will try!

Once we start making excuses, it's easier to believe them than to admit the truth.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.

She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the

Build-A-Bear Thin Mint Bear Review and Giveaway

I've mentioned before my love of Build-a-Bear, there is nothing that brings a bigger smile to a child's face then being able to create their very own personalized furry friend. One of the great parts about Build-a-Bear is they are constantly updating the friends you can create. Right now they have a great selection on Valentines friends that you and your children can create and love. I got the chance this month to review a friend that is available just TODAY! The Girl Scouts Thin Mints Bear brings back so  many memories as of my time as a girl scout. I love that on one foot there is a Thin Mints cookie, which is my personal favorite! On the other there is the Girl Scout Trefoil, the symbol every Girl Scout knows and has pride in. My daughter is 5 years old now and I am so excited. In less then a year she will start here journey through the ranks of the Girl Scouts. My daughter simply loved this bear(as she does all her Build a Bear frien
