Where did we go wrong!?!?! #bornintoanaggiefamily #webleedmaroon

Noah’s Bandage Project

A few weeks ago I received a powerful email from a follow blogger – Brittany at Just Another Day in Paradise.  She reached out to several bloggers to come together and support Noah’s Bandage Project and raise awareness for Childhood Cancer.

From American Cancer Society

Childhood cancers make up less than 1% of all cancers diagnosed each year. About 10,380 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2016. Childhood cancer rates have been rising slightly for the past few decades.

Because of major treatment advances in recent decades, more than 80% of children with cancer now survive 5 years or more. Overall, this is a huge increase since the mid-1970s, when the 5-year survival rate was about 58%. Still, survival rates vary depending on the type of cancer and other factors. The survival rates for a specific type of childhood cancer can be found in our information on that specific cancer type.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children aged 1 to 14 (after accidents). About 1,250 children younger than 15 years old are expected to die from cancer in 2016.

We bought several boxes of fun bandaids.  I hope these bandaids bring some smiles to children that are fighting childhood cancer.

If you would like to help here is more information about Noah’s Bandage Project…

  • Bandaids cannot be sent directly to hospitals, as they are hospital supplies, so funneling them through NBP is the way to go!
  • Monetary donations are also always welcome – the Wilson’s are working to increase the lack of funding there is nationwide for pediatric research (only 4% currently!!!).  So far, they have raised $100K and that number continues to grow (donations can be made on their website:www.noahsbandageproject.com)
  • If you’d like to send bandaids to them, here is the PO address where they collect them:
    • Noah’s Bandage Project
      119 N Parker Street Suite 110
      Olathe, KS 66061

Stitch Fix Box #1

Friday afternoon I received my first Stitch Fix box.  I was so excited when the mailman rang my doorbell and handed me the box.  I immediately opened it up and checked out what my stylist picked out for me.  I have always heard that sometimes the stylist will send some items that are not your taste but my stylist did an amazing job!

 photo 20160923_115310_zpsodwmmcvc.jpg

Everything was packaged so nice and neat…

 photo 20160923_115417_zps0uctglsz.jpg

Time to see what I got in my box…

 photo 20160923_170050_zpszaopewyb.jpg

The first items I tried on were – Sinclair Button Front Blouse (Kut From The Kloth) and Jimmy Skinny Jeans (Just Black) (these jeans are the same in each picture)

I usually like this type of shirt but it was a little big. I loved the jeans!!  They were the perfect fit.

 photo 20160923_170736_zpsn8f3xspw.jpg

Next up was a really cute scarf – Alina Leopard Print Infinity Scarf (Octavia)

 photo 20160923_164328_zpszdptt2uk.jpg

I also paired the scarf with one of my black shirts.

 photo 20160923_164029_zpsg8bq5o2f.jpg

Next was one of my favorite shirts – Greenich Striped Knit Top (Pixley). I loved how comfy this shirt was and it is something I would wear to work or relaxing on the weekends.

 photo 20160923_164224_zpsdxkvn1jb.jpg

I also love this top – Benter Mixed Material Top  (Kut From The Kloth)

 photo 20160923_164122_zpstcb1xuzv.jpg

All and all I loved every item in my box.  However, since the one top was to big I decided not to buy every item in this box, which meant I would not receive the 25% discount. So I picked two items that I loved – Benter Mixed Material Top and Greenich Striped Knit Top.  I am already looking forward to next months box!

Hi my name is Jessica and I am an Amazon Prime addict !!!  I love that I can find almost anything on Amazon.  I also love that I can purchase the item, have it in two days and if I don’t like it I can send it back – no questions asked!!

I have being looking for a cute black skirt but I couldn’t decide on the style so I bought two different ones and of course I needed a shirt for each.

My sweet husband noticed that I had an item just sitting in our Amazon cart for the past week.  He called me yesterday and told me he went ahead and purchased the item for me.  I was so surprised!!  I can’t wait for my  Silhouette Cameo 3 to arrive.  I am already thinking about all of the items I am going to be able to make!

Every September our town holds an Oktoberfest in downtown. We have been once before but we had two precious kids with us.  So this year we decided to get a babysitter and enjoy a parent’s night out with our friends.  I can’t wait for a nice relaxing night out.

We had a lot of fun checking off items on our Summer Bucket List so I thought I would try a Fall Bucket List.  Since today is the First Day of Fall I am sharing our Fall Bucket List.

What We Ate Wednesday

We love crock-pot meals in our house. Pulled Pork Barbecue sandwiches is one of my favorite dinners. I love how easy it is and the best part is everyone in our house loves this meal.

 photo 20160920_192354_zpsyqasdgtl.jpg

See super easy — 3 ingredients and it took me 5 minutes to put it together!!

Ingredients
3 to 4 lb boneless pork shoulder roast
1 yellow onion
1 can of Coke
1 bottle of Sweet Baby Ray Barbecue Sauce
1 Package of Pepperidge Sweet & Soft Slider rolls

 photo 20160920_192424_zpst04o7snp.jpg

Place the pork roast in your crock pot. Slice the onion and place some on the bottom of the crock pot and some on top of the pork roast. Next pour the coke in the crock pot. Set your crock pot to 8 to 10 hours and let it cook. Once it is done take it out of the crock pot and shred the meat. I mixed 1.5 cups of barbecue sauce in with the shredded meat but you can use as little or as much as you would like. Serve on top of the Pepperidge Sweet & Soft Slider rolls. – it is amazing!!!

Doesn’t this look so yummy!!!

This week has been one of those weeks where I was just not motivated to blog.  So many things going on and I just needed to focus on my family and not the next picture to take or the next blog that needed to be posted. I took the time to simply reflect on why I started a blog.  I plan to be blogging more over the next few weeks.  I have a few blog ideas that I hope to work on this weekend too.

We have had a busy week.  This week we added another sport to our weekly activities.  The girls signed up for a six week Volleyball Skills camp that is being held at our church.  The parents are required to participate in the practices and help their daughters learn the volleyball skills.  I HATED volleyball when I was younger but I really enjoy playing with the girls this week.

This year our church is offering a place for families to come and eat dinner together.  You have to bring your own dinner but we get a chance to socialize with our friends and the girls get to eat dinner with other friends – Love this idea!!

I have several friends that have raved about the cute clothes they have gotten from Stitch Fix and of course I have read several blogger’s negative experiences.  However, I took the plunge and have signed up for my first Stitch Fix.  I will get my first order one week from today!!! EEK!!

Danny and I have known Manda and her family for nine or ten years.  We meet her in church and have watched our kids grow up together.  Just in case you don’t know Manda’s story here it is…

Manda is 35 years old, a wife and a mother of two wonderful kids. Manda first had cancer at the age of five and was in remission until she found out it had come back one week after she gave birth to her son. Two weeks after her son was born, Manda made the choice to have one of her legs amputated in order to completely remove the cancer from her body. Manda spent the next year going through treatments to make sure the cancer was gone for good.  Five years later, it is back for the third time.  She fought the cancer again and during the summer of 2015 she got clear scans back that showed the cancer was not detected.  However, during the Fall of 2015 she discovered the cancer was growing again and so she begin her battle again against this horrible cancer!

From Manda’s Page… Manda Strong

Manda had recent scans and did not get the news we had prayed for today. She will meet with her Dallas team later this week. Thank you for your prayers and please continue to pray for wisdom and clarity as they make decisions on the next steps to take. Your prayers are cherished!

So please keep Manda and her family in your prayers!!

I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT WEEKEND!!!

I am so glad that we finally made it to Friday!  I am still exhausted even though we have had a short school and work week.  This weekend is full of soccer games, date nights, and birthday parties!  But first here are my Top Five for this week…

Last year I was devoted to Camp Gladiator for 6 months and then I decided to take a break and go back to the gym.  However, after doing 21 Day Fix workouts and gym workouts I have decided that I need more accountability.  So this morning I woke up early and headed to my first Camp Gladiator workout.  I have mentally prepared myself that I will not be able to sit on the toilet today or tomorrow since it has been at least a year since I worked out with these girls (and some guys). I am going to be SO SORE but it will be all worth it in the long run!!

It has been several years since we have gone furniture shopping and after this past weekend I realized why it has been so long!  We spent our Labor Day holiday shopping for furniture. We are in the process of trying to update the furniture in our living room and maybe our dining room.  Furniture shopping is so overwhelming and stressful!  We are having a hard time finding exactly what we want for those spaces and also finding the perfect color.  Since we did not find what we were looking for we are headed to a few more places this weekend!

We get to have a date night tonight because of the wonderful FBC McKinney Children’s Ministry.  They want to invest in the marriages of families in our church by offering an evening of childcare three times this Fall!!  We have decided to meet five other couples for drinks in downtown McKinney and then head over to one of the pizza restaurants from a yummy dinner.

When I was pregnant with our oldest daughter (9 years ago) our church offered a Woman to Woman Mentor Program.  I was a young married woman and I loved having a woman that was probably 10 to 15 years old than me come along side of me for about 6 months and pray with me and give some guidance.  I have waited patiently for our church to offer this program again but it was really not on anyone’s radar.  So I went to a few women that are on staff at our church and after several meetings and a lot of planning our new mentor program kicks off this Sunday.  The CONNECT program is a network of relationships among women of all ages where women can learn, share, grow and guide each other through the many seasons of life.  I have been praying for this program for months and I cannot wait to see how God will work in all of the women’s lives.

This month Bailey Jean is hosting a blog-tember challenge. Everyday she has a different topic to blog about and today’s topic is —

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? Why?

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Danny loves Formula 1 racing.  Over the past few years I have enjoyed spending Sunday afternoons with him while we watch the race.  I say all that to say that the one place I would love to go is Monto Carlo, Monaco for the race that is held there every Spring.

Monte Carlo looks so glamorous.  I would love to go see the race and stay to see all the beautiful sites, such as the Monte Carlo Casino and Opera House.

Life Lately

Since school started 3 weeks ago we have been going non-stop! With sports, Church, PTA board, working full time, being a mom and a wife, and the crazy notion of trying to have a life, I feel like I am being pulled in every direction at one time. Danny told me maybe it’s time to let something go, but I am a major control freak so that thought scares me!  Since my blogging has slacked over the past few weeks I thought I would share some random pictures of our life.

We have several play dates with friends…

Abigail’s 1st grade teacher asked all the kids to write her a letter over the summer about everything they were doing.  We finished Abigail’s in early August.  The teacher then wrote each student a letter in return.  Abigail got her letter this week and she was so excited!!

Finally Danny has joined a Men’s Softball league for the Fall (because we needed one more thing to do – LOL!!!).  The girls and I went to cheer for him and the other guys this week.  Let’s just say the girls do not understand baseball/softball rules.  It was funny having to explain to them that you want the guy to catch the ball in the air, among other rules for the game.

This is the first year we will have to face the STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) test.   In Texas all 3rd graders have to take the Math and Reading portion of this test.  I know that Kate’s teachers will prepare her for the test but it make me so nervous!

I am really proud of myself because I have read four books this summer and started my 5th book (A Time to Dance) this past weekend.

A Time to Dance

 I loved The Girl on The Train.  I can’t wait to see the movie in October.

The Matchmaker – this was the first Elin Hilderbrand book I have read and I loved it.  I am looking forward to reading another book by her soon.

Me Before You – Loved this book too, but still have not seen the movie.  Hopefully once it is on DVD I will have a chance to watch it.

After You – this book was good but not my favorite.

I have had Meghan Trainor’s new song “Me Too” on replay for the last few weeks.

Soccer, Soccer, and more Soccer!

We will be on the soccer field four days a week so need less to say we will be very busy for the next 8 weeks but the girls love playing.
