Meet my friend Adam!

<br />

When I asked him the hardest thing about having juvenile diabetes, he thought for a moment.
“After you’ve been doing it for four years, nothing’s actually hard,” he said. And when I asked him how his school days are different from a lot of other children’s, he thought again.
“I think we have more fire drills at my school,” he said.

Read the entire article & learn more about Adam

  • Adam is my friend Rhonda's son.
  • He is great kid!
  • He deals with all of his crazy "Schneckenaunties"- (that's what my friends and I all, call ourselves because we work at a school called "Schneckenburger")
  • He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 2 years old.
  • He is stuck over 3,000 times a year
  • He receives shots of insulin and finger pricks to check his blood sugar numerous times a day
  • He never complains!
Please take a moment to read the article the local newspaper wrote about him last school year around this time- its time for the Juvenile Diabetes Walk next month. We will all be walking with the "A-Team" (Adam's Team) in hopes that there will one day find a cure for diabetes!

As much as Adam is a great kid- his Mom is just a GREAT!
These are just a few of recent post about Adam-
  •       Six years ago today Adam's life and mine were changed forever; he was diagnosed as a Type I diabetic at age two. Our life has continually revolved around trying to keep Adam's blood sugar where it needs to be to avoid long term damage to his kidneys, eyes, and other organs. PRAYING FOR A CURE!
  • Looks like a long night ahead of blood sugar monitoring... Adam is low and his sugar won't go up. Looks like I'll get to catch up on every ones FB lives and photos so I don't fall asleep!!
Please keep them both in your thoughts and pray for a cure!

5 Things We Dont Know About You~Link Up!~

Ok, so of course...I couldn't get the actual linky party to work (Still a blogger beginner- never through a party before) so here can post your list of 5 things we don't know about you here in the comments section OR just post your link in the comments section and everyone will head on over to your blog and learn those 5 new things about you. I will go first!

5 Things You Don't Know About Me

 I have a pacemaker- I had the surgery when I was 20 years old.(I'm 32 now) I had to have a pacemaker implanted due to a heart arrhythmia. I lead a perfectly normal life and no one ever knows I have it and I forget about it most of the time honestly.

 I am the oldest of 17 grandchildren. I love my cousins! I am 32, and the youngest is 5. We are a HUGE family.

 I have had 2 miscarriages and even though I have my 2 boys that I am so blessed to have, I think about those 2 miscarriages, all.the.time. Every time someone announces a pregnancy, every time someone gives birth. Even when someone else experiences some types of loss, I begin to think, would they have been boys or girls, Goofy like Eli? Would they have had that sweet face that Ben Henry gives me? 

I am a cheek biter. When I get nervous, anxious, or just start to stare off in to space I will find myself biting on the inside of my cheek. This is actually a family thing. My grandmother, mother, and most of my aunts do it as well. So is it inherited? Or is it something I learned from watching them? Weird huh?

 I hate other people feet! All these crafty projects on Pinterest creep me out! The thought of having to take of my students shoes and socks and touch their feet totally skeeves me out! Writing this is actual freaking me out a bit LOL. I can deal wit my husbands, and my kids, but anyone else NO WAY! Socks are a must! and ya know whats even funnier? I wear flip flops constantly, so my feet are always out and on display!

Alright everyone...I have given you my 5 things...share yours. leave a link in the comments section OR leave a link to your post but leave us with something...share share share

Rounding everyone up....

Today is like my Pre-game! A tailgating of sorts. Tomorrow I want to host a party. I want to host a party where we all post a list of 5 things we want to share about ourselves that we dont normally tell others. Things that you cant tell, just by looking at us. It can be something secretive, something silly, even something you have been waiting to share, or somthing you have never told a soul. Get ready to share and round up a few friends to come to Warm & Fuzzy's first ever stop & share party! Its starts tomorrow!! Be there!!

Monograms & Mimosas Shower

I recently had a Monograms & Mimosas shower for my BESTIE Kimmy,and I've needed awhile to recoup. The shower went off perfectly and it was a huge success! Everyone had a great time and said they enjoyed themselves.
 I will have to one day write a post about my craft fail. I was supposed to make these adorable cake ball favors well I bought some really greasy frosting and the sticks wouldn't even stay stuck inside the ball- lets just say it was a MESS! But again, for another day...
Here are the pics..

With all the pictures I took of all the monogrammed stuff
I actually forgot to take a picture of the Mimosa table! DUH!

Hope everyone enjoys!!
Make sure you leave a comment and say Hi!
I love visitors!

What to do? What to do?

I don't have a fireplace, so we don't have a mantle. We do own a very large entertainment center that has a large area/space at the top that is empty. It is bugging me that its just empty so I want to spruce up the space. I really love the look of the shutters that everyone has been showing lately like this:

this one is from
I would love to do two or three separate shutters with a picture of each of the boys and maybe either a wreath like shown above or even a "T" for our last name. Now I am sure that I would change things in and out for the holidays and such but I am not sure where to get the shutters from. Did most of you buy shutters paint and distress them yourselves or did you find them at a flea market? I am kinda at a crossroads as to what to do.
I did find some other ideas on pinterest that were cute as well
How great would this be in a kids playroom? from

Love the simplicity of this one- from the lovely Char @
Love Love Love that these are red, {heart} the pop of the color!
And this really has me thinking about doing it myself:
thanks for the inspiration

So, if you've done a shutter project- post a pic! Or leave me a comment and tell me how you did it. I need some info. I am SICK of looking at this empty space!! Thanks everyone!
