Hubby Thursdays- Thankful

  I know I am going to sound like a broken record, but I cant help but to be thankful for my HUSBAND! He is so amazing! I love that he is a man of God, he is determined, driven, and has a heart of gold! All he wants is for us to live a good life, he wants nothing but the best for us, and that pushes him to work hard. This guy works so hard its unbelievable. He gives 110% to all his clients and looks out to give them the best. Ray's job can be very stressful, as most of you know, he is self employed and is a Realtor. We all know that out here in Cali the market isn't how it was 4-5 years ago and Ray actual started doing real estate when the market was down, so he doesn't know how it feels having buyers and sellers finding you and wanting to sell and buy left and right. Now, you have to work hard to find sellers and buyers and you have to know about short sales since there is a lot out there. Short sales are a lot of work, because you have to be on top of the banks in order for the short sale to go through, and it can be along process for it to finally close. Ray everyday is making calls, and once a week or sometimes more, he is out door knocking. If ray does not have a listing or anyone looking to buy, we don't get paid. This can be very stressful in its self, but Ray has a determined mind, and his hope is in the Lord. Ray wont quit till he finds someone who needs help selling or buying. I am so thankful for his drive to keep on keeping on! And our God is amazing, he provides for us every time! Ray wants to be successful Real Estate Agent and I know he will! With God all things are possible! Ray has a heart of gold, even though he can be stressed out to the max some months, he is still there for us, for his girls. He plays with them every evening/night he comes home from work, and once I put them to bed its us time ( I guess is should wait patiently for Madison's arrival and enjoy the time Ray and I have alone while the girls are in bed.) All and all, I am beyond Thankful to our Lord Jesus for this incredible husband he has given me. I am so proud to be his wife!


A quick story... Ray was making his regular calls when this man answers. I am not sure how the conversation started, but the man told Ray that he was just praying or has been praying for someone to help/advise him if selling is home and that Ray was the first Realtor to call after his prayer!!! PRAISE GOD!! This is just beyond amazing to me! God is so good, He is not only answering this mans prayers, but is also providing for our family!! THANK YOU LORD for you are so GOOD!

Belly Business

I am 37 weeks today!! We are so excited to soon meet you little Madison! I keep thinking about what day and time God has set for you to come out into the world.  I hope labor and delivery is even faster with you then with your sisters. labor and delivery with both your sister only took about 4 hours total! With Raychel I was induced and with Oceana she came all natural. I almost didn't make it to the hospital in time with OC. I am hoping God will bless me with another fast, drug free, delivery! I can not wait for that day to come!! Believe it or not labor and delivery is my favorite part! Yes, I know, I am crazy! Hope that day is coming sooooooon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Madison's Shower!

First off, I want to thank all the ladies who took the day off to come celebrate Madison's soon arrival. Thanks for taking a day off work, leaving the hubs alone {even on his birthday, thanks Clarissa!}, and plainly just leaving everything to spend this time with me! You ladies don't know how much it means to me for all of you to be there! I am beyond thankful for you guys! Thank you for your love for me and the love you already have for Madison!! I thank the Lord for you guys!




I just took a picture of the drinks. I forgot to take some of the yummy food my mom made =(



Marissa and Brandi bought the girls some goodies to play with at the shower! Thanks Brandi and Marissa!! <333

 Baby Picasso was such a fun game! All the ladies one by one were blind folded and they had to draw a picture of a baby. The best one to draw the best baby wins!







Then we played, guess what chocolate is in the diaper!










This game everyone got in a circle and a story was read. During the story you had to pass around the gift and when the story ends whoever ends up with the gift in the end wins it!



My brothers girlfriend was the winner!




MY BEST FRIENDS! I love you ladies!!

Seeing these 3 dresses made it so real to me... I will be a mother to 3 beautiful girls!!!
PS. Hopefully since my mother-in-law got 3 dresses for 4th of July it will mean that Madison will decide to come that day!! I hope!! 










Yes, I know, I am freakin' huge!!! Madison you need to come out right now!
