Sinking Spells

I have had three sinking spells is what I call them in the past two days. I don't know what the heck is wrong with me. All three times it's almost as if I'm hypoglycemic. Not sure if I'm not eating enough because of my pain from the ulcer or not. I have had a sinking spell all three times where I clam up, get sweaty, start to get the shakes, and feel like I'm going to faint. It's rather scary because it comes on suddenly and takes a while to go away. With the last spell, which was in the evening, I got an instant headache and became extremely nauseous.
I have ruled out pregnancy (with a negative test), I took my blood sugar and that was fine, and my blood pressure was a little elevated, but not much. So I have not a clue what could be going on, unless it has something to do with my ulcer or whatever is wrong with my stomach. I have been having bad insomnia for the past couple of weeks, also. I have a gastroenterologist appointment on June hopefully he can figure out what is going on with me. I will be trying to set up an appointment with a regular doctor this week if I can get in sooner. I'm just afraid it will happen when I'm all alone with Zoee and that just scares me to death. Please pray that I get answers quickly and will heal even faster.

Memorial Day Weekend

We had a great weekend until I started feeling bad. We went swimming...Mike got a new smoker from my parents along with a brisket to cook in the near future. We have decided we are going to make some jerky..or attempt it at least. HA!

Zoee is a water bug..she never wants to get out of it when we're ready to go in. She loves to swim just like I did when I was little and still do.

Zoee likes to play dress up and she dressed herself up and chases Gizmo around and dresses him up, too!

Lily's 1st Birthday Party

We had a really great time at Lily's 1st birthday party yesterday. We had great food, Zoee bounced in the bouncer, hit the pinata, gabbed, and had some great cake with Desiree's family and friends.

Having a Ball @ the Mall

I needed to go and pick up some things at the mall today. I asked Traci if she wanted to bring Koleton to come and hang out for a while. We let the kids play and then went to a few stores. They kids had fun!

Bunco de Mayo

We had Bunco in May at Christopher's house. He did an awesome job at decorating and we had a ton of fun! This is our last Bunco party of this season. Can't believe it went by so quickly. We are having a "Wrap Up" party at the beginning of June and then will start another year.

Being Crafty...

Grammy bought Zoee many new bows the other day...and we have two bow holders right now with no room to spare. So I decided to make her a new bow holder to accommodate all her hair bows and put her smaller ones and barrettes on the older ones. Oh my..just counted..and she has 73 bows and a ton of barrettes..WOW! I wanted to make the bow holder simple because her bows are so busy. And we will be changing her room out soon to a different theme...something more girly this time around. Already have started getting things for it a little bit at a time.

About her bows..there are some that I have bought..a lot that Grammy has bought..and many that I have made myself. I love being crafty. I just my sewing machine back from my Mom because hers had broke down and she just bought a new what's next on my crafty agenda???


This morning I awoke with tons of kisses and hugs from my sweet lil' girl. Mike helped Zoee make me a homemade card that is so adorable. It has both of their hand prints on it..and she even signed it. Then I also received a cute pair of flip flops, which I forgot to take a picture of and I'm getting a Spa Day at the end of the month to get my feet and a massage done. HOW AWESOME!! Mike also has a BBQ Brisket cooking on the grill and we're going to spend the afternoon resting and playing outdoors in Zoee's new pool. I can't wait to get our big pool up soon! Hope you all have a Happy Mother's Day! Let it be glorious!

First Swim of Spring

Zoee swam for the first time in her new pool tonight. She had a blast!!

What a great friend...

I have one of the bestest friends anyone could ask for.
Courtney sent me a sweet Mother's day card in the mail today and it made my day!
Thanks and hugs!

26 Months Old

Zoee is 26 months or 2 years and 2 months old today!She is such a bright lil' girl. She is learning everyday something new and knows her colors, can pretty much count to 10, knows her animals and their sounds, and talks more and more every day. She loves to read read read!! We will be working on shapes next. She is really tall for her age..should find out soon just how tall. And she can be a defiant 2 year old or she can be sweet as can be. She chooses the time or day..HA HA! She sleeps in her own bed until about 5-6 am (when her daddy leaves for work) and then comes and gets in bed with me and sometimes we sleep in and sometimes we have to get up and do things. One of my favorite thing she does now is every time I or someone else gives her something she says: "THANK YOU". It just melts my heart. Love her!

May Play

We went to a play date at our mall this morning. Zoee had so much fun riding on the train with Kalee and Rylee. Zoee is obsessed with trains. Kalee rang the bell the whole time and I don't know if you can see or not..but the lady in the pic on the upper right hand corner tooted her lil' horn the whole funny!

Great Gratitude

I have so much gratitude that I get to join in celebrating Mother's Day.
For a while, I thought that I would not be able to celebrate.
What a blessing that God has given me to be able to bring such a precious lil' life into this world.
I love her so much!

My Momma is...

I like to think I received some great attributes from her!
She taught me that it's okay to laugh out loud...
How to be loving...
She always threw me the best birthdays...
And gave me a great sister, who I loved to pester...
But is also my Best Friend...
She made me the best Halloween costumes..and Pageant attire...
And how to frolic in the snow..
even if we had to wear bread sacks on our feet to keep them warm...
She always made us look so pretty...
Even though we had to wear the dreaded pink curlers to bed...
And Easter was no exception..we were dressed to the nines...
And told us to always follow our dreams..and that they do come true!
She always said to surround ourselves with great friends...
And that it's okay to act silly...and have fun...
And even through my awkward stages...she loved me anyway...

And I can't wait to share everything my Mom has taught me with Zoee...
because I love my Mom so much!

Happy Mother's Day, Momma...
Couldn't have asked God for a better one!
Love you!
