The Future of Some Kids

By 6:04 PM , , , ,
So I was super pumped to purchase this shirt this week:
 
 
 The front says "Love" and the back has the following scripture on it:
"I will not leave you as orphans. I will come to you." John 14:18
I found out about this sweet family and their story and how I could help by purchasing this shirt by reading one of my favorite blogs, Put Up Your Dukes. I have always had a heart for children and adoption warms my heat in ways that only Jesus could put in my heart so it was a "no duh" decision for me to purchase this shirt. I encourage you to read this family's story and consider purchasing a shirt yourself. 
 
Three facts that hopefully will make you want to read their story:
 
1. This family has already raised 3 children in the past who are now adults. But Jesus has told them to raise 3 more children.
 
2. The children they are adopting do not speak any English.
 
3.   If you don't read their story you won't know how to pray for this sweet family.

We Have New Life in Our Wreath

By 5:00 PM , ,
Remember when I blogged about the awesome spring wreath I got last May from AliceMayDesigns Etsy store? Well, I currently have this wreath on my front door. Yesterday evening I was outside cleaning the pollen off our front door to get ready for company coming over when I noticed something in our wreath. 

 
If you look really closely at the above picture you will notice that the original fake wreath with two fake blue robin eggs has been pushed to beneath the wreath and there is a new real nest above the fake one hanging out the bottom. Upon further inspection here is what I found:


Inside the nest were four live baby birds! So sweet! So naturally what did I do? I texted all my guests immediately to tell them to come in through the garage or back down and not to use the front door so we didn't bother the sweet birds. 

When I went back out today to check I found that two of the babies had moved out of the nest and are now sitting on top of the nest.

 
I love spring time for many reasons but one of the reasons is because spring time brings new life. How can you not look at these sweet baby birds and just want to praise God for creating life?

Happy Birthday to My Hubby

By 4:24 PM , ,
So this past Sunday was my husband's birthday. Sunday was also the day we were supposed to return from the beach. Talk about a lot going on! Thankfully my wonderful mother had my husband's birthday celebration at her house on Sunday.

My mom always does holidays and birthdays huge...she sure knows how to make you feel special and Josh's birthday was no exception! 


 She did a cookout for him complete with the picnic theme and mason jars to drink tea out of! Super cute, right?


 The other great thing about parties at my mom's house is that there are always appetizers. For his birthday there were mozzarella sticks and fried green beans...yum, yum!

And he got to spend his birthday doing what he loves most...golfing!

We go all out for birthdays in our family. You get a birthday week instead of a birth-day. What do you guys do to make birthdays special in your family? I know some of my readers use a special birthday plate. I really like that idea as well! What else do you do to make a birthday special?

Meet My New Friend Emily (+Giveaway!!)

By 2:27 PM , , ,
  Good afternoon everyone! I am so excited to introduce Emily to you! After reading Emily's blog I have fallen in love with her and her adorable family! Besides her adorable family, she writes a wonderful blog that thrives to encourage and inspire which is exactly what our world needs! Emily has three children...two on this earth and one who has gone to be with Jesus. She has written a beautiful post on her family's story that you must all read!

And since you're reading my blog....that means you understand my love for Jesus-
Emily shares that same love which is just one of the reasons why I know you'll love her blog!
I am lucky enough to have Emily guest post on my blog today so be sure to read her post below and then go say hey and check out her AMAZING blog and this adorable family:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am so excited to be guest posting for Chelsea today! I started blogging a few years ago when Mark and I were just a newly married couple. ;) I had a few friends who had a blog and I really enjoyed reading them. I love scrap booking and enjoy journaling as well. After being a failthful reader for a while I decided to take the plunge and become a "blogger" as well. ;) 

I live a few hours from my family so when I first started this blog I called it "Just to Keep in Touch." It stayed this way for a while. As it grew and we welcomed children into our family I decided to change the name. I have printed the blog several times into books for us to have to sit and enjoy as a family and so I knew I needed something that had to do with my family when renaming the blog. That's where..."They Call Me Mama" came....I have a friend who helped change the URL (actually her hubby was SO GENEROUS and helped) and there you have it.."They Call Me Mama." 

When asked to write a guest post I wasn't sure what to write about...I decided to do a post full of randoms. Sounds fun huh!?!!?!? LOL! So without further adieu...

3 random facts about me-
1. I prefer a pool by the ocean more than actual sitting on the beach...not a sand girl. ;) 
2.  Over the past few months have I really grown to love people that are "REAL" more than people that strive to be someone they aren't. This has also changed my heart as well. (I have a post coming soon to my blog about this.) 
3. Growing up and even for the first few years of marriage I wanted LOTS of children. After having Wyatt and Sloane we have a peaceful heart when talking about how our family is complete. 


My favorite place to shop-
That is an easy one...even the 2 yr. old could tell you Mama's favorite place to shop is: 

My favorite place to eat-
My favorite place changes all the time but currently this is what I am lovin'. ;) Mark and I enjoy date nights here so it's always special when we get to go.

Oh and because Emily's so cool, she's giving away a $10 Starbucks Gift Card! Woot Woot!
GOOD LUCK!
