Nice to meet you! I'm Brenda ...

I'm a sinner saved by the astounding grace of my incredible Savior {Need}. Adorer of my husband. Mother of princesses. List maker. Brownie baker. Hidden Mickey finder. Pinterest addict. Speaker of too many words. My favorite things are smooching my hubby, impromptu dance parties with my daughters, planning our next trip to Disney World {this starts the day we get home from WDW}, laughing til I cry happy tears, running farther than I did the last time my shoes hit the pavement, crafting, theme parties, bows, ruffles, anything pink + sparkly! :*) . . . My struggles are between delicious eats and fitting into the cute clothes in my closet. Wanting my house to look like a magazine, while living a fun life inside of it (fun usually wins, clean houses are overrated anyway, right? ;)) ... and more seriously, against my self-seeking flesh and my greatest desire - glorifying God in all things! Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Please be sure to say, "Hello!" while you're here! ;)

  4. Thanks for leaving a lovely comment on my brownie recipe- I see you like to bake them! I feel like I have the same struggles as you- perfect house or happy kids, eat chocolate or look good in clothes etc. I am excited to see more posts from you and I would love to visit Disney World one day! I am from New Zealand though so it is a bit of a way to travel.
