Bernie Mac is back!

I was able to be apart of one of the most amazing things this weekend! My baby brother, Bernie, graduated from the Faith Home this weekend. He had been there for 60 days. Yesterday he came home!

The Faith Home is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. God's hands are all over that place. Almost our whole entire family plus several friends went. I am so thankful that I was able to be apart of it. SO THANKFUL! My dad, Bernie and my son, Ryan sand Long Black Train. It was so good! Then my dad preached the graduation message....again....awesome! Then Bernie got his certificate of graduation. God has great plans for him...big, big plans! I can't wait to see what they are!

If you would like to see Bernie's graduation speech then please go here to my sister's (Lori) blog where she has it posted in 2 parts. It is awesome! Please go see it!

Bernie I am so proud of you! I will continue to pray for you and I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you! I love you baby brother!!

Here I am...for the moment!

Ok, I totally have not fallen off of the face of the earth! I have just been super busy, I mean super busy!
Vacation was awesome! We had THE.BEST.TIME! I am ready to go back after having to work a week! All we did was hang out by the pool and well, that was about it! We all got great tans! The kids are so dark, especially Jackson. Where does he get that skin tone from? Not me!

As far as Weight Watchers goes, I lost 5.8 pounds in 2 weeks. Yay! I actually lost on vacation! Can you even believe that one? It helped that Lori was there and she is following the plan too! The only time that I went over my points was when we ordered hot wings (I only had 6...they are 6 points a piece!) and my friend made me dinner at her house and for dessert she made us banana splits. Yummy!
Lori and I got up and walked 3 mornings at 6 am. It felt really good. And can I say that it was high tide most mornings and walking in that soft beach sand does wonders for the legs. I even jogged a little bit. I am not very graceful so jogging is not easy for me, especially with a bum knee, but we did it!
I will post some pictures as soon as I have the time to download them. Busy, busy, busy!
I really don't have time to do anything anymore.Even though I am only working about 4 hours at the courthouse doing title researching, I still have to come home and sew for the rest of the day and even night. Plus the kids stuff they have to do. And house cleaning, I guess I need to do that actually! Maybe this weekend! I don't know how other single women out there do it all and seem to have it all together. Oh well, I guess I will adjust to it!
I have a PTO meeting this afternoon to plan the Fall Festival, then a wedding to attend (yes, on Friday the 13th, go figure!), then out with the girls! Tomorrow is up in the air. We are supossed to go see my husband but we are waiting to see if he has to work. If we don't go then it is definitely house cleaning day tomorrow, plus a few orders that I need to get done! Sunday is church day and Awana, so that about covers us this weekend.
I hope that everyone is doing great! I haven't forgotten about you, I promise to try to make time to stop by and see what you all have been up to! Have a great weekend!
