Life Lately...

Life around here has not been "normal" lately. I wish I could say it's been an easy month, but that would be a total lie. I have so much crazy family stuff going on...I really really wish I could say life has been boring around here. I'd take boring ANY day over all this madness. :)

Here's a little glimpse into what's been happening....
I got super crazy sick last week and threw up & (ahem) the other end too. TMI? Sorry, but this is real life, my friends. Hehe. I ate saltines for 3 days and water and couldn't keep anything down. Bless my hubby for taking care of D or I would've lost my mind! 

My Mom's friends made her these awesome "LESA'S LEGION" bracelets to support her going through her radiation treatments. I love that they're neon! Ha! My Mom is tough, but it's not easy watching her go through all the ups and downs of these treatments. I wish I could help her more. She's amazingly strong, my Mom. Love her so dang much!!

I look at D and am so grateful he came into our family's life when he did. He is a little bright light, when there could be so much unhappiness right now. He is a mood lifter, this one. 

I ordered that stencil to paint my family room walls (hopefully this weekend, but really who knows!). I looooove it and can't wait to paint!! 

Ty and I thought we were hilarious and gave D a super sour blue candy (hence the blue tongue), and he didn't even FLINCH. Ate it like a champ. Showed his Daddy up too (who squirmed like a little girl when he ate it). HA!

I made Cornflake Candy (and posted it on Instagram @jennathewife), and you would've thought I was talking about some crazy thing. You've NEVER had Cornflake Candy?? You're totally missing out. Here is a LINK to the closest recipe I could find. Seriously make some & thank me later. But don't blame me if you eat the whole pan in one sitting. :)

We got to watch Daddy play Baseball last night, and it was so nice to get out in this beautiful weather! All the wives sat and chatted...and the kids were glued to the fence-- watching all their daddies play ball. Cutest thing ever? It's possible. 

It's crazy times like these, when I really have to stop and appreciate the little things. I'm being totally serious when I say I looked at my Pink Blossom Tree in my front yard the other day for like 20 minutes. I just sat there & admired it. 

Date Nights are my saving grace lately. Just to be out with my hubby & enjoy each other's company. To love up on each other & laugh like we have no cares in the world. Love my man. 

My sis is coming in from Texas today, and I'm SO EXCITED to see her!! She graduates college tomorrow and I'm so so so proud of her! It's gonna be a gooooood weekend!!

  5. ...I've never heard of this cornflake candy...but I can tell I'm going to be obsessed!

  6. Our months seemed to have mirrored each other in interesting ways. I didn't blog for two weeks due to life stuff, and then I have the flippin' flu. Yuck. I'm glad you're feeling better and that you can eat now. ;)

    Your mom's a champ, for sure! Keep strong, Lesa!

  8. Praying for your mom and your family and all of you. My MIL was diagnosed with cancer three weeks before I had my younger daughter and what followed was a year of craziness. I understand a little where you are at and praying for grace for you all.

  9. dear jenna- i think you're great. i'm sorry things are so crummy right now. i actually read through your post a few weeks ago about your mom (which is now deleted?) and bawled my little eyes out. all things i needed to hear/be reminded of. what a tough tough situation and no doubt a clear reminder of the important things in life. you're so sweet and so inspired. really. here's hoping things start looking up. hugs to you and your cute fam. <3
