Zing Zang Zoom...

I remember once when I was a little girl, my parents took us to the Ringling Bros. Circus! I remember it was something amazing. As a parent now of 3 little girls I am always excited to take them on new adventures. Well on March 10th(unbeknowenst to them) we are taking them to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Circus!! And you can too!

I was contacted by MomCentral to giveaway a Family 4 pack of tickets to the opening night of the circus in Cincy(March 10th) and opening night in Dayton(April 29th)! That my friends is an amazing gift! They are sending my family to the circus just for helping them! What a generous company!

This year's tour is called Zing Zang Zoom! It already sounds fun to me! Here is some info about the circus: Through the mystery of magic and the mastery of skill, audiences will be spellbound as Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey presents ZING ZANG ZOOM!

Magical Zingmaster Alex and his assistant, the alluring Levitytia, lead audiences through a kaleidoscope of color and imagery revealing extraordinary worlds of fantasy, flight, and phenomena that celebrates the uplifting spirit of the circus and wards off a cynical Mr. Gravity and his team of "heavies" who try to bring everyone down.

Fun-filled magic merges with traditional circus arts to create a world of infinite possibilities where apprentice illusionists levitate their parents with a wave of a wand and audience spirits keep rising as the high flying circus is (literally) turned upside down. BONUS: All Access Pre show is free for all ticket holders and begins an hour before showtime.

So this first giveaway will be for opening night of the Cincinnati show March 10th at 7:00p.m! The show will go from March 10-March 14. All you need to do is leave me a comment telling me something...anything!! The winner will be chose by on Sunday the 21st! This giveaway will end the 20th at midnight!! Good luck! Oh, don't forget to leave a valid email addy so I know how to get in touch with you!
In case you don't win the tickets given away here you have a couple more can visit my friend Cortney's blog, she is giving some away also! Or there is also a special coupon code MomCentral is offering. If you buy your tickets online at Ticketmaster you can enter the code"MOM" to get 4 tickets for $44(Monday-Thursday& Friday matinee) or use the code to get $4 off weekend tickets!!
Stay tuned for the Dayton area giveaway!!

The Meaning Of Life...

What is the meaning of Life?

~to reflect the image of God
~to seek to please HIM and not me
~to do HIS will and not mine
~to complete the work he gave me to do....

this is becoming my meaning of Life. This is how I hope to live my life.
I am learning to "be content"....that is a hard one for me. They say the grass is always greener...but I say "I am content". It doesn't mean that I am settling. Being content has more to do with loving the Lord with all your heart than, just being okay with your situation. I am loving life more these days than all of last year combined. I am happier this very minute than I can remember being in a long time. I have been ridding my body of toxic things...and filling it with more Holy things.
I am "content".

What is the meaning of your life?? Are you content?

 has been a week already since my tiny miracle nephew was born. He came into this world when he shouldn't have. The doctors said he had a 30-40% chance of making it 48 hours. The power of God is amazing!

He is doing well. He is 1lb 14oz, regulating his own body temp, no vent, having bowel movements, among other things. On the not so good he is having regular apnea spells and has a heart murmur. They will do a head CT tomorrow to check out his brain. I love him so much already. When I touched his tiny hand for the first time I cried. My sister is so strong. She is pumping every 2 hours just so he can have what's best for him(and every other baby) breastmilk. I am so proud of her, she has been pumping like crazy when other women wouldn't have even tried. She is a true mama!! I can't wait to hold him.
I am trying my best to support her and visit with her, and do anything and everything that I can for her. We(my husband and I) know what it's like to be in this situation. Logie was in the NICU for 10 days after birth and then the PICU for a month when she was 3 months old. It was a VERY hard time for us and we found out the hard way about people supporting you. So I don't care if I smother her with my love, she will know that I am here for her for whatever she needs! I often joke that if I am your friend/family I will smother you with love! I don't think that's a bad thing!

So I guess I am praying for different things than other folks. I am praying for her mental/emotional strength cause she needs it to get through all of this. It is going to be a long road for them. Of course I pray everynight that God will wrap his loving protecting arms around Liam and make him stronger everyday!! His name means Warrior and that's just what he is!! Feel free to add them to your prayers!! I will post some pics of Liam on here so you can see just how adorable he is too!!!!!! Thanks for letting me ramble!! Of course who am I thanking? This is my blog and I can ramble if I want!!
