Bringing Home the GREEN!! On Etsy!!

Hello lovelies! Living on a single-income is never easy and with two growing blueeyedbabies who eat non-stop, it is getting even harder. So this week I started to put what I know how to do into action and to try … Continue reading

I will miss this place ..


Hello lovelies!! … thegreeneyedgroom and I have sold our first home, he has passed probation with flying colors, and we are on our way this week to our new townhome near his new city. Being a firewife is an adventure for sure! Hats off to military wives out there, not sure how you do the moving so well! I am a wreck, I’ll admit.

Lots of DIY and decorating posts to come {yay!} – but for now, a goodbye to my hometown that I am sure many folks can relate to. We are from the PacNW and are sooo proud of the rain and mud in our veins.

And honestly, I’m nervous to leave. I am trying not to say afraid, because I know that God has willed this for us and that my husband would not call us to just anywhere away from home. This is our plan God created for us and our blueeyedbabies. And some day, I pray, they will feel the same way about our new home as I do about thegreeneyedgroom’s & my hometown.

Sappy. I know. People move all the time. I know. But I am not people, y’all.

I want to encourage you lovelies to be grateful for your roots today. Whatever they are and whoever is involved in planting them .. remember they are yours. Own it. Embrace it.

God allowed you to be brought up the way you were so that you would become the beautiful, wonderful and beloved you.

‘I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.’ Psalm 32:8

Thank you lovelies! Jesus loves you!

Something to listen to..

Hello lovelies!

Here are two of the most inspirational folks thegreeneyedgroom and I have found on our journey to self-reliance:

The Maine Prepper

Such an awesome guy, literally, I wish we were friends. {it’s ok, thegreeneyedgroom does too}

He is a veteran, a true patriot, a devout follow of Christ and just very easy to listen to. God has blessed him with a way of speaking that you just know, the words he speaks are not his own.

You can listen to him here on the good ‘ol youtube :


The Patriot Nurse

She is seriously hilarous but so stinking smart. We enjoy listening to her speak on ways to protect our family’s health and safety. She just thinks of those little things that you really need in your bug out bag but, would have never even thought of!

You can hear her here :

and here..

Great resources, both of them. And I highly encourage you to give them a listen. thegreeneyedgroom and I just turn on youtube on our smart tv and it just plays while we are doing dishes, visiting over breakfast with theblueeyedbabies or just sitting on the couch relaxing with a hot cup of coffee.

Thank you lovelies! Jesus loves you!

Proverbs 21:31

This verse is such a great one to write on our hearts, especially in times like these where it is uncertain how our future is going to unfold. With the country being run poorly, the economy in bad shape and … Continue reading
