I bought a pregnancy test, "just in case"

Well, now that I have your attention!

For the past two weeks or so, I've been feeling nauseous and I even tossed my cookies one night!That is completely abnormal for me, and the only other time i've felt like that, was my previous pregnancy! SOOOOOOOOOO, I thought instead of freaking out, I better just buy a dagum test and get it over with.

For those of you that dont personally know me, I have 4 kids already. Yes thats right. I feel like Im right behind Michelle Dugger; even though, she has considerably more than me. Sorry if this is TMI for the fellas, but I am on birth control, but we all know NOTHING is 100%!
I bought the dumb thing, and attempted to tell Edwin. I started to cry because I was so overwhelmed and scared at the thought of FIVE. (oh by the way,;my youngest is 14 months old, so this would NOT be the time; if there was such a thing as a right time anyways!)

My husband had just mowed the law, than exercised, so he was already hot and sweaty to begin with! He had to sit down, understandably, and quickly said, "please hurry up and take that test!"
We are not pregnant. Im glad Im not pregnant. If this was in 2 years, I might have been sad that it was negative; even though, that would mean FIVE. My husband is FOR SURE DONE. Poor thing thought he was done, than I came into his life and wanted a baby of my own.

Life is full of surprises and uncertainties; as we all know. Sometimes its easy and fun, and other times its heart wrenching and just flat out difficult. Life of a family of 6, is just that. It is certainly not easy all the time; we can't afford to do much (poor kids just want McDonald's sometimes, and I cant tell you the last time we even went! ha). but our days are full of laughter (and screams), snuggles, and lots of family. Would it be so bad to have 5? just sayin...

Florida Vaca

So we had a vacation planned for 3 weeks at my parents condo in Forida! At first I thought 3 weeks was going to be UHMAZING! After 1 1/2 weeks, we realized it was just too long with 4 kids and headed home early. Lets be honest, 3 weeks would have been awesome without kids! We could have just layed out all day! We did have a great time; enjoyed the beach, the pool, and some good outlet shopping! Its always good to be back home though. Of course I'm planning out next Dallas road trip...

My newest hobby

It's been a while since I blogged! You'd think I would have more time, but we've been so busy and out of town a ton! Speaking of out of town; we're about to leave for Florida for 3 weeks; Hollar! I can't wait!

So lets move on...

The past month or so, I've been dabbling into photography. I've spent countless hours reading articles, learning my camera, looking at websites, and have had a hand full of practice sessions. I've really enjoyed it. I have lots of visions in my head, and would love to put those into reality soon. There are a few things I would love to purchase, but those will have to wait until the timing is ready (IE; earn some mula first!) I have a facebook page and separate blog already designed and ready to go, I just haven't made them public yet.

My next thought...

I have a hand full of friends that are amazing photographers, and I am by no means trying to compete or compare myself to already greatness.I don't claim to be the next big thing, and Im not trying to be. Im not trying to do this full time, purchase a studio, or live off this. I am a stay at home mom, who is finding her niche and enjoying a hobby. Everybody starts from somewhere or nothing, and this is me starting from the ground. I realize I have a lot to learn and master, and I plan on taking a class when the timing is right for me to do so. In the mean time, I would love your support and your "likes" when I publish my facebook page! I welcome your comments and encouragement (just dont rip me apart or give me too much "constructive criticism"! I may not be able to handle it! ha).

Ready for a few previews?!
