                                                                 Survivor Nicaragua

I love survivor, all reality t.v. actually, but especially Survivor. I was so glad that they sent Shannon home on Wednesday. Definitely the right choice. I like Chase and Brenda. And the Kelly with one leg. Oh, and Fabio. I know he's as dumb as rocks but I like him. On the old tribe I like Jimmy J. and Yve. The girl that stole the shoes?? What is wrong with her? I agree with the tribe that she is crazy!

Horror Story

The “shortest horror story ever written” is usually attributed to Frederic Brown:

The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door.

Food pictures and christian warfare..

So we had a pretty crazy night last night at our house. It turns out that our church is under some major demonic attacks and we found out last night. There has been some serious praying and repenting going on after realizing the severity of it all.
We have a pastor in response to a call coming to preach on Sunday and I think that may have a lot to do with it. I'm pretty excited to see this guy if Satan is going through so much trouble to cause problems right before he gets here. Make me very hopeful for our hurting and broken church.
On a lesser note I recently have started baking a lot. I love to bake. Love love love it. but, I'm not very good. I'm good at pretending to be though. Lol. Anyways I just keep doing it because practice makes perfect, right? Well now my dilemma is that I don't know how to take food pictures. I tried today, only they didn't turn out so good. I'll go ahead and post them anyways.
I made some Oreo Truffles. Which is really just about one of the easiest things to make ever. The only part that is a pain is dipping them all in the chocolate, just because it takes some time. All you do is get a package of Oreos, I almost got newman O's but was too scared it wouldn't turn out the same, stick them in a blender or food proccessor then stir in a package of softened cream cheese. Roll into balls and chill in freezer about ten minutes, but the longer the better. While doing that melt a bag of chocolate, I used Ghirardelli milk chocolate and it was delicious. Then dip the balls in it and put back in fridge or freezer until hardened. I also found that the hotter the chocolate was the easier it was dip because it wouldn't go on as thick. I started out using toothpicks but soon gave up and just used my fingers. That's probably why mine weren't so pretty. But still delicious!
Have a look.
Also, why is my little baby getting so big??

I'm still here..

I didn't post over the weekend because Audra and I went out of town with my family to go see my grandparents, probably for the last time before we leave for Singapore. It was nice to be able to see everyone but it was hard because it was a three hour drive and Audra got tired of the car seat. Also, first time we've really stayed the night anywhere and she didn't like being away from home. So, there was more crying that usual at nap and bed times. She is two months old now and I can't believe it. SO big and it goes by so fast. And what a chunk. She weighs 12 LBS. already!

I love being a mom. Of course there are some things I miss but this is what I really love to do

I'm getting so excited about Singapore too. Just a couple more weeks and we'll be on our way. It's going to be such an adventure. After the weekend away I'm really dreading the 24 hour airplane ride. It will either be really easy or really not. Lol. We'll just have to wait and see. I have been doing so much research and have so many things that I want to do when we get there. I'll be sure to post all about it. And take lots of pictures.

Well need to get some laundry done so that's all for now.

I will NOT quit!

So, this is what happens everytime I start a blog. I have started THREE then I post once, maybe twice, then I go delete it. Well not this time! I left but now I'm back. I really want to keep a blog, especially now that I'll be going to Singapore soon. I want to be able to document all the fun while I'm there. The reason I stopped was things got crazy cause I had my baby. She is beautiful and will be two months old on Saturday. Her birth was really hard on me (that story soon to come) and before that we moved and everything and I just got so busy. But I'm determined now to keep this up. I love reading blogs and in another post soon I'll share some of my favorites. I'd like to post everyday but I'm sure that won't happen. So, my goal is three times a week. That sounds doable. Then if I keep up maybe I'll tell my friends and family about it. Just not until I'm sure I can keep it up. Ok. Well here's my new start.
