    Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop #25

    Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop.

    Another week with the MIL in town! Holla!

    Y’all will need to pray for me on Sunday as we prepare for her to head back home. I’ll be in a deep dark depression and back to full time motherhood duties.

    For some reason this week I was captured by your dressers. LOL!

    Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop #22

    Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop.

    Last week about this time…I was having a minor freak out over the computer crashing.

    It feels so good this week to have my computer working and BACKED up!


    Never again, never again will I go without backing up my files.

    You always say, “It will never happen to my computer.”

    I’m here to tell you. It will. :)

    Back up your files. Thank me later.

    On to the party. Because really, a working computer is a great reason for a party.


    A few of these projects from last week blew me away.

    Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop #19

    Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop.

    Another week, another set of amazing projects.

    I’m on a mission this week to re-paint my home office. I’m blaming one of the projects linked up from 2 weeks ago on this diy headache. I should have known that all of this cool built-in furniture in my office would be a pain in my rear to paint around.

    But oh how it will look so good when I’m done, right? 

    Tell me again. And again. I need reassurance.

    Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop #14

    Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop.


    I’m on a road trip as you read this.

    A 10 hour road trip. A 10 hour road trip with 3 kids and a hubby.

    Pray that we make it without killing each other, would ya? 

    We are off to visit one of my favorite friends…Natalie, The Busy Budgeting Mama. Her and I met in person at Blissdom this past year and I adore her. She truly has the sweetest heart.

    I’ll be sure to update more on how this trip came about, how we survived the car ride with 3 kids who hate the car, and, of course, our visit with Natalie and her adorable family.

    Until then, check out these amazing recipes that were linked up last week…

    Stop & Smell the Roses – Vlog Link Up Announcement

    Hey girls (and guys??)! I decided that I wanted to start being better about vlogging on a weekly basis so I decided to start hosting a weekly vlog link up! Who’s in? Don’t all raise your hands at once now. I know you all just read “vlog” link up and wanted to go crawl under your beds. Uh-huh. I can see you.

    Seriously though…I am going to be hosting “Stop & Smell the Rose’s” Wednesday! I am super excited to commit myself to at LEAST one vlog a week! AND I’m hoping since I am involving you all…it will hold me accountable!

    I really do hope you will join me starting next week! Please watch my video for all the details!


    Some Days We Are Superheros and Other Days…

    …we feel like a chaotic mess of underwear and mismatched socks scattered across the bedroom floor.

    And that’s just how we roll here at House of Rose.

    I wish I could tell you that I am a perfect mother who wakes up at 5:00 am every  morning to read her bible, slaves in the kitchen to have the kids a homemade breakfast ready for when they wake, sits at the dining room table for a family breakfast, has each child dressed in the cutest clothes for school, and is out the door 15 minutes early dressed in my best with full makeup. Ha!

    I would say it’s more like this…

    I wake up when I hear the baby crying on the monitor (and not a minute sooner). To be honest, I usually let him cry for just a few minutes while I at least get my teeth brushed. Sorry. A mom with bad breath is worse than a mom that let’s her baby cry.

    As far as trying to read my bible in the early morning hours? I love God, but I also love my sleep. One of these days I am going to have the discipline to worship in the morning before anyone is awake. One day. Just not tomorrow.

    Breakfast? My kids usually grab a granola bar on the way to the car as I am yelling at them to hurry up or we are going to be late. Sitting in the car seat to eat your breakfast is better than not serving breakfast at all right?!?

    My 4 year old STILL refuses to dress himself so yes, that means I have 3 kids to dress instead of 2. Not only that, but you have to chase the 2 year old around the house and then double team him to get him to sit still for longer than 60 seconds while you throw some clothes on him. And most of the time…no they don’t match and he will have them back off within 3 minutes if you don’t immediately strap him in the car seat.

    My attire? Let’s just say that this morning I was so frazzled that I forgot to put on underwear. I’m not kidding although I wish I was because even though no one knows when your not wearing underwear…I still secretly feel like they can see through my pants.

    So no, I am not a perfect mother. I am far far from a perfect mother. I like to call my mommy skills a “work-in-progress”. I have lots of things I need to improve.

    It’s a good thing God’s grace is on me. And it’s funny how even after my morning goes a little whacko-macko…sometimes I still feel like a superhero.

    Do you ever feel like even after you have failed…at least you finished?

    One thing I never forget to do as a mom is to tell my boys I love them before I drop them off.

    Afterall, isn’t love enough? Who needs matching socks and eggs and bacon if you have LOVE?!?!

    Today I am linking up with Neely from…
