Links, Updates, and Pictures

I hit a wall yesterday. And although I don't mean I literally ran into a wall, I certainly felt like it. Caden has been especially unwilling to sleep or be put down lately. And after nearly 6 months without a full nights sleep, lots of drama in the hood, and kiddos over a lot this week . . . I just crashed a little. Adam took the kiddos so I could sleep for like 2 hours yesterday morning. But it turns out that 2 hours doesn't make up for 6 months of sleep deprivation.

Anyways, I wanted to share a few links/reminders with you and catch up on my 366 project.

* First of all, I've been trying not to be annoying, and I figure most people who are going to vote already have, but there are still 2 weeks left to vote for me in the Glamour/Sally Hansen contest. The top 4 semi-finalists get a trip to NY and a makeover. Can I just tell you how badly I need both of those things? Oh and we would also get money for our ministry, which is even more exciting. SO if you have a minute, would you mind popping over and voting for me (I'm the very last picture)? Plus, Glamour donates $1 for each vote cast to DKMS, the world's largest bone marrow donor center whose mission is to recruit bone marrow donors to help save the lives of leukemia patients. Also, when you vote, you are entered to win a basket of Sally Hansen goodies. So fun.

* Secondly, I have the privilege of being a part of this special Pinterest challenge to raise awareness for CHD. I have been blown away by all the beautiful stories and gorgeous kiddos on the board. If you would still like to share your story, feel free to comment here or send me an email at Becca1612 at hotmail dot com. I spent some time today praying for each and every story posted, and it was such a blessing to me and a reminder that we are not alone in our journey as a "heart family."

* A quick update on the crazy-hood situation. Things have calmed down quite a bit, and several parents of kiddos were arrested, so please keep them in your prayers.

* Finally, here are the latest in my 366 project. I'm really enjoying taking pictures every day so far - it's the transferring and uploading part that's hard for me to stay on top of!


  1. I love the pictures! Maybe next year I'll take on the 365...

    Love the cloth diaper picture. The fun colors make me want to try it, but is it a ton of work? I'm really bad at laundry so I'm not sure I could keep up! I'm totally inspired by the moms who do!

    I sure hope you win the makeover. You totally deserve it.

  2. I wish I could vote ten thousand times. I hope you win!

  3. beautiful pictures!! i hope you win - you deserve it a million times over!

  4. Totally in love with the sweet potato picture!! LOVE!!!

  5. I am hoping and praying that you win.

    And I can't EVEN believe how big Caden is. Holy smokes.
