Alright, so because of Hurricane Isaac I haven't had a chance to post my review so it will probably be after he blows through unless I have some time tomorrow or even later tonight. Between our super busy weekend and not getting very good rest I am exhausted. I worked this morning and been trying to plan what we are doing for the hurricane, checking on family and friends' plans and dealing with some other personal stuff it's been a lot. I am about to go to bed, unless I can't sleep yet again, and will try and post in the morning. We have decided to join our new church and so far have been very welcomed into their family which makes us very happy. I am so glad for my family that we have found a wonderful church home for us and I feel this is the right path for us. If I don't post tomorrow I will definitely post on the other side of Isaac on how we fared. Until next time, Brandi

Last night my husband, son and I went up to our church and helped them paint the gym. Well Dre played more than helped. And we were there until about 11pm and then today we went and helped the new youth minister to move into his new house. It's been a lot of work this weekend but there is definitely a feeling of community and accomplishment going on. Tomorrow we plan on actually going to our first service there. I have been an Awana leader with them for two years but haven't made it to one of their services for one reason or another and I feel that Brad and I are ready for a church home. I am getting a night off to go out with a good friend and let off a little steam and it is very needed. I thank my wonderful husband for him allowing me to go use my groupon that a good friend gave me for my birthday. I hope to post my first review tomorrow. I just wanted to stop by and catch up and let everyone know I haven't left you yet :).

The Beginning

All right. So here we are, a new blog and a new venture for me. I am a 27 year old wife of 7 years and mother to a 6 year old boy. I also teach at Gymboree Play & Music and sell Pampered Chef. I have bi-polar disorder and insomnia so I'm a bag of fun :P! My goal for this blog is to review products I use and find around that fit my busy lifestyle. I will also post about good deals and the occasional recipes I find that I like or want to try. I try to be crafty and am always looking for ways to organize in the way I find helpful. My dad is a carpenter so I love working with tools and don't shy away from getting my hands dirty from time to time. And there will be the life posts as well as what my family and I are up to. So I hope you come along on my journey and find things that work for your life on my blog.
