I am excited to share that I am a member of Weight Watchers. Yep, I’m going to be attending weekly meetings and following the points plus system. Any of you currently in Weight Watchers or thinking of joining? I’d love to have you as a sidekick along this journey. I’ll check in with you all throughout the process and would love for you to do the same!

It’s official guys, tomorrow morning is my first Weight Watchers meeting and I am so excited about this lifestyle change and journey to a better me that I had to update y’all. I even splurged tonight on some of those ooey-gooey Cinnabon delights from Taco Bell. So yeah, kudos to those of you who are also beginning this lifestyle change and I can’t wait to check in with each of you throughout the journey. Happy tracking!!

  

God is SO good!

So I have to share with you guys the blessings that the Lord placed on my family last week in the most unexpected ways. It all began when we were on our way to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. We were headed up Black Mountain and my dad’s radiator blew. To make a long story short we were stranded on the side of the highway for a good 4+ hours. My dad’s best friend drove a good 2+ hours to bring us his truck and him and my dad swapped out the radiator. They swapped out the trucks so that we were pulling the RV with his friend’s truck and then his friend was going to drive my dad’s truck back home. The blessing in disguise was that while we were sitting on the side of the highway, ambulances passed by and there was a huge wreck up ahead. If we hadn’t been stranded, that very well could have been us. Think what you want, but I believe that the radiator going out was God’s way of protecting us from the wreck up ahead.

If that isn’t enough to give you chills, check out what happened literally about 30 miles from the campground we were staying at. Only around 30 minutes to go, we took a turn and a tire on the RV blew (see picture below). Here we are on the side of the road, late at night, no one around. My dad calls around to different roadside assistance places and the quotes began at around $500-$700. Next couple calls got the total down to anywhere from $325-$445. My younger sister posted a status on Facebook requesting prayer considering this was our second time on the way to where we were going that we were stopped in our tracks and found ourselves on the side of the road. No lie, not even 5 minutes later a gentlemen pulls up checking on us. He said he lived right down from where we were pulled off at and that he has a spare for his RV. He was going to go pick it up and see if it fit my dad’s RV. Praise the Lord, it fit like a glove! We were back on our way and my dad got his tire fixed while we were there that week so we could get back the tire to the gentleman who helped us. Talk about a blessing, I will never forget how the Lord showed himself in those circumstances!

  

Happy Fourth!

I hope each of you have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day weekend. May we all be reminded of why we celebrate this holiday. We are the land of the free because of the brave!

May we think of freedom not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right. -Peter Marshall

Here’s a sneak from my Fourth of July Mini session with my beauty queen, even if I’m biased.
