I'm a Christian and I ramble

I haven't used this in a very long time.. when I started this blog page I had every thought in the world that I could do this daily or maybe even weekly. .but as you can see life has happened and this blog hasn't gotten very far. Even from the start I didn't really know the direction I wanted to take ...did I just wanted to talk about "Addy" ?? did I want to post all the random craft project I do from time to time??  did I want to use this as a tool to meet other firefighter wives around the U.S .. Did I just want to write about what ever was on my mind at the moment?? like I have said before I am not one to have a journal and as much as I post on Facebook at times most people don't have a clue about my day to day life...NOW with that being said my day to day life isn't bad  I just don't want to put people on social media blast because we had a bad day  .. some events of life are just better left unsaid..  With all the rambling being said I guess its time to dive in to WHY I am blogging tonight.
I am a Christian ... yes a C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N.. I'm not perfect.. I don't listen and I'm hard headed.. up until the last couple years I wasn't what you would call a " screaming from the mountain tops " Christian .. not to say I am today but I am a lot more open about what I believe. I guess I was to scared to be judged or fear of rejection.. unfortunately no matter your belief some one out there will judge you and of all things. If I am being judged for being Christian then so be it...Now what most people that are reading this don't know is I am a P.K. Yea "preachers kid" my dad went in to the ministry  at the very end of my 10th grade year( no I am not or ever have been the "wild preachers kid" or the over sheltered preachers kid  but thanks for asking =) ) I grew up in church, youth group, church camp.. you name it I did it.. Now that I am older and have my own family/life I have some many ideas running threw my head of messages I think people (including my self ) need to hear.. do I want to be like my dad no.. but as a Christian you are in your own way spreading the word and planting a seed with people that you meet alone the way.. I have sat in the back long enough and its really time that I get the pen to paper and start getting these messages out.. I am hoping that this strengthens my relationship with God and who knows .. changes  a life

To keep or not to keep....that IS the question.. I swear I'm not a hoarder...

Have you ever had an event happen in your home and it ends up tail spinning into about 100 "new" projects for your self??
That kinda happen to us. The hubby was off work and home working on washing clothes ( have I told you how amazing is he?) and working on some stuff around the house( I was at work). He went to change some clothes over to the dryer and ended up walking in to a room full of WATER.....yup about 10 gallons of water all over the floor. LONG STORY SHORT ...the poor hubby had to dig a 7foot tunnel under the house and he and my brother in law  had to change and rework water pipes under our house.(5 hours of digging for 10min of pipe work)
Well with all this going on it made me to really look around my back yard and wonder "How did I get all this junk back here?" my nice big back porch had turned in to a catch all of some very random things... So wile the Hubby worked on filling the big tunnel back in with mud Addison and I got to work
I cant believe the amount of random "stuff" was out side but its ALL gone now!

I'd say we are READY for a summer BBQ now!
and all the cleaning brought out the craft side in the hubby..We have this old frig out side..The hubby likes to call it "rust bucket" but it works great. He didn't like the fact the back yard was all clean and nice but  ole Rusty was still there sooo
The hubby painted it!! I think he did a good job and it look soooooooooooOOOO much better then "rust bucket"
 Now the back yard is DONE!...Then I walk in side...and look around.... O BOY!! so for a little bit each day I have been doing some "spring" Summer cleaning.. We have a small home so it doesn't take much to fill it up and with a toddler here we fill up fast... I was able to throw away so much and even had enough for a yard sale ( that will be this weekend).. I'm hoping that all this hard work pays off but for now its hard to tell with all this yard sale stuff sitting out.  It feels soo nice to get rid of things.. It really feels like a nice fresh start..and PERFECT timing for the summer time....But can you believe all this started just because of a pipe leak a week ago???  Kinda wondering what project will get started after this yard sale this weekend ... I'm on a RRROOOLLLL

...not sure where I'm going with this

Well... HERE I AM!! =) I have been bouncing around the idea for a few months now to start "blogging" (If thats even what its called these days). I wasnt to sure were to start. I have never been a person to keep a journal and even at times when things get too crazy just keeping up my list of "to-dos" is hard enough... I have sticky-notes for my sticky notes =).. BUT ANY WAYS!!! Here it is my 1st blog post...
let me introduce my self... My name is Candace, I thank the good LORD every day for every thing he has put in my path in this crazy thing called life. I am married to the most amazing man in the world. My Firefigher <3. We have a almost  18 year old  3 year old little girl  named Addison who is the best little girl but BOOOOOYY is she strong willed and sassy (no clue were that came from ) ..My goal for the blogg site is to share my thoughts / my crazy DIY projects/ product reviews/ and last but not lest the day in the life of  Addy Fay.. Enjoy and hold on for the ride.
