Enjoying our Rest & Relaxation

Happy Monday.. Firstly, we are having a great time. The weather is very nice, not to hot nor to cold. When I first walked into the house on Saturday I was amazed by it's beauty. It has the cutest little road that creeps up the driveway and then there it is, pure perfection. I have yet to have the chance to visit the mountain house since my grandparents bought it, and I can tell you it was not what I expected, at all. It is so beautiful, I will post pictures soon. When we got in and settled Saturday we went to town to get groceries and to get some dinner. The town was just to die for, small and big at the same time, surrounded by this beautiful lake, but the night air had taken away the sun, so i couldnt see all of it beauty. We went back to the house to relax and enjoy each other. We got up Sunday wondering what to do, now since we had never visited Hiawassee we knew where NOTHING was. We knew Helen, Ga was close by since we passed through it on the journey up so we decided to back track and go there since Michael had never been. I went when I was younger with my Aunt and Uncle. We had a great time in the little town. Like most tourists we visited random stores and shopped.. We did get a old timey picture take which is hilarious. :) Heres to the rest of the week spent makeing memories..

Off to Grandma's we go!

So, we are on the way to the mountains right now, although you will probably not hear from me much over the next week I will be drafting some blogs and posting them once I have time and get back. We are about half way there and I just cant wait. My Meemaw and Papahoney are the proud owners of a 3 story house on a mountain in Hiawassee, Georgia. It's a great location with lots of fun and exciting things to do. We will be arriving around 7ish, so here comes the fun... I am looking so forward to having some time ALONE. I better enjoy it now while we can, before kids come along, hehe..

Hope everyone is doing alright.. Leave me some luv!!

Out and About,

Thrifty Shoppers

So today is the day after the Lord's Birthday, and as if we are not all broke enough after the Holiday's some of us crazy ones get out and go shopping to get the great deals. Well I plan on this every year, I love going to Walmart the day after Christmas. That's the only place we go but I have been known to visit every Wally World in Northeast Florida, lol. Man, I got some great deal, I saved over $500. I was amazed. All of my Christmas items are all nice and tidy now, ready to be used in 2009. =] Not to mention I got all new dishes for my Kitchen, went home and cleaned every kitchen cabinet out and reorganized. I am headed to the Mountains tomorrow morning.. Woohoo.. See ya later..

Happy Birthday Jesus

This morning I woke up, wishing I could still sleep, but it was time to head to Mommy's house. I must admit it still gets to me sometimes that I cant wake up to the smell of Mommy's breakfast and hear Good Morning Baby Girl. I sure do miss those days of ripping open the presents and spending the rest of the day being lazy with my bubba admiring our new toys until it was time to head to Meemaw's house. As Michael and I finally made it out of bed, I grabbed up all the presents and off we went. When we got to moms we ate breakfast,, Amazing Breakfast Pizza, Let me tell you its awesome, yummy, and easy to make. Then it was time to open presents. As always we took turns and admired the things we got each other. This year was special to me because I had got everyone in my family, well the girls, aprons with their names embroider on the front with matching initial pot holders. I wanted to give them something personalized and that's what I came up with! It was so exciting seeing the looks on everyones faces when they opened their special gifts. I reveived a awesome gift from my brother, it was a cd called Childbirth in the glory. It's about what the bible says on conception and childbirth. I can't wait to get started with it and see what all it has to say to my heart. He's so thoughtful. I am so lucky and blessed to have the husband and family I do. This was a wonderful christmas, and one of my best presents is going to the Mountains for a week with Michael. I am sooo excited.. Heres to reconnecting and falling in love many more times.. I love my man..

Happy Birthday Jesus, Thank you for everything you have done to save me. Thank you for caring because I am not deserving of your love. Thank you sweet Jesus....

Saturday I am off to the mountains.. I will miss yall!!

A limo, Are you kidding me?

So tonight was the night I asked my Uncle R and Aunt K to take me to see Christmas lights since Michael's not a big fan of riding around for no reason. Well to my suprise my Aunt Kathy had planned for a limo to pick us up at her house, not just regular limo, a WHITE DODGE CHARGE LIMO,, just like my car, haha!! Luckily Michael decided to join in on the fun and we had a blast. It was My aunt and unlce, Michael and I, Danielle and Myles, Danae and Justin.. Off we went to see all of the pretty light Fernandina had to offer. I had never been in a limo before and just couldn't get over all the pretty lights inside the car. We went to the island to the Ritz Carlton who had a huge life size gingerbread house in the shape of a ship.. It was soo cool.. I have pictures I will post soon.. It was most def. a memorable night. I am so lucky to have a Aunt and Uncle like them.. I love you guys!!

Christmas with Daddy

So today my Christmas was officially started. I stayed the night with my Dad last night, so we could wake up this morning to open presents. It was the first time in ages that I slept in the same bed with my brother, I know some of you are thinking eww, nasty, but it reminded me of when we were growing up. We would always end up in each others bed. That's the best thing about having a brother, you have a built in best friend. =] When we woke up we all went to breakfast, yummy.. Then it was back to the house to exchange gifts. It was a fun time and very relaxing. I wasn't feeling to well but for the most part it was a great day..

Oh Holy Night

Spending time with Uncle Randy and Aunt Kathy has always been one of my favorite pass times. Tonight after attending the sweet Christmas special at church we decided to ride to Avondale to see all of the pretty luminaries. You would not believe how much fun it was and exciting to see all the the people on horses, bells ringing, carolers walking down the street, it was just breathtaking, it was as if we were in our own hallmark Christmas movie. I had so much fun just listening to the kids laughing and the ho ho ho's as Santa made his rounds. There was even this one house with 3 young people, probably in their teens singing in the yard, with a sound system and all. Talk about angelic sounding, their voices were breathtaking, chills ran up my spine.. O holy night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth. One of my favorite songs. Next year I want have a group of people go with a trailer and ride through like the other people was doing.. With hot coca and christmas music blaring.. How much fun would that be?? Merry Christmas guys..

Do we have 70 hours to spare for God??

So the past few weeks I have been completely consumed by the word of God. It's as if when I read the bible now it all makes sense. As a child I used to think how does Jesus expect for you to understand this confusion, but as an Adult I realize my words were careless and his word is immense and very reassuring. The more and more I look towards the bible for comfort, I find answers to my many questions. God really is the all mighty one. He has prepared this book, a novel that explains every single adversity we will face a humans and how to handle them. He has written a book entailing of all the countless experiences we will go through, it’s just mind boggling to me. Did you know that the bible can be read aloud in about 70 hours; a book that many Christians will never read from start to finish can be completely read in that amount of time, some spend a lifetime trying to accomplish this. I am going to start reading my bible tonight, starting on page 1, and just working my way from beginning to end. My goal is to finish it by July 2009. The bible contains 1,189 chapters, 31,101 verses, and 783,127 words. How fortunate are we to have that much knowledge left as a guide to life as we live it on this earth? My prayer today is that all of you rely and trust in Jesus as your savior, clinging to his word as your life standard.

I would like to share with you a bible verse, pertaining to prayer. If we pray for things, that we desire, and pray for them in an unselfish way, GOD will answer our prayers. You may not understand or comprehend his ways but they are always the right way no matter what. He is an all knowing God and truly knows what is best for us. It looks like my blog is turning into Brittany’s Daily Bible Verse Lesson, but it is what it is. I just blog about what I experience and feel, and God is always on my heart and mind. I just hope the verses I stumble across and share can comfort you as much as it does me.

Mark 11:24

Therefore I say unto you, what things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.


merry CHRISTmas

Filling my HEART with the word of GOD

So the past few weeks I have been completely consumed by the word of God. It's as if when I read the bible now it all makes sense. As a child I used to think how does Jesus expect you to understand this mess, but as a Adult I realize my words were wasteful and his word is immaculate and comforting. Isn't it amazing how you comprehend things the older you get. Things that used to be crazy all is starting to make sense.

I'm amazed.

Talk about complicated

So last night was a tad bit challenging for me. Firstly, taking picture of a premature baby in it's self is a hard task to complete. He was so small that most poses you could do with a new born could not be done with him, not to mention he gets so cold from being so small that you have to keep him bundled up which makes it even harder. Secondly, add a 3 month old wiggle worm into the chaos. My good friend Lindsay has a handsome little man Maddox and her sister has a little boy named Brodee. Needless to say we decided to get some Christmas pics of the boys together and separate, but only ended up with separate. They weren't having it together. Brodee was quite tired so he was in the fighting falling asleep mode which made it almost impossible to get him still long enough to place him next to Maddox's fragile little body. Therefore it was much easier to do pictures separate of them. So I started with Maddox. Now keep in mind all of the cute ideas I had were out the window when I truly understood how small and fragile he is. I know I didn't get as many GREAT pics as I wished to capture but I hope they will make Lindsay and Brooke happy. Let me know what you guys think. Enjoy...

Much L<3VE,

Michael's Hunting Adventure

Sorry I am just now getting around to this.. As you know Michael went to Kansas and Oklahoma over Thanksgiving to hunt. He was gone a little over a week and had such a great time he wants to go back already, despite the 24 hour truck ride it took to get there. I can't even get the man to drive 45 minutes to the mall much less 24 hours, ha ha... What a man will do to get the big one.. Needless to say Michael's hunting adventure didn't turn out the best in the world.. He didn't get the big one he had hoped for.. But he was able to bring home a smaller buck and a doe.. Oh well.. Next time... Here are some pics for your viewing..

Have a good day..


PS: I didn't realize I left this out, the big deer with Michael, he didn't kill that a friend did..

As promised by muah... =)

They aren't the best in the world, but you get the point right...
Some better pictures showing the new hairstyle and color..

Til death do us part

Dear Michael,

Today is your birthday, December 16, 2008, you are 28 years old. Still so young but age is definitely creeping up on us. I want to wish you a Happy Happy Birthday my love. I wish nothing but happiness for you throughout the many years I hope we may spend together. I know we do not always see eye to eye, and sometimes may ask our self what we were thinking by taking on a lifelong commitment, but I do know that at the end of every day when we lye in bed gazing into one another eyes, we remember why we are in love, and why we put up with each others craziness. I love you Mr. Bell, with all of my heart. I am honored to be apart of this special day, and look forward to the many years of happiness.

I love you always and forever..

Your heart,


Ecclesiastes 9:9
Live joyfully with the wife whom you love all the days of your vain life which He has given you under the sun, all your days of vanity; for that is your portion in life, and in the labor which you perform under the sun.

Somewhere in the middle,, You'll find me... =)

Hey guys.. I hope everyone has had a great week. As you can see I have changed my blog title. It's part of my skin shedding process.. Out with the out me, and in with the new. I found my self trapped in the definition of infertility, so I am letting that go and will continue to blog as always about what's is on my heart. And as of now, my heart is focused on being Christ for filled and a woman of god. Please stay with me through this journey and your comments and suggestions are very welcomed. God Bless..

I pray this song touches everyone who hears it the way it has touched me. Another footprint imprinted into my heart.

"Somewhere In The Middle"

Somewhere between the hot and the cold
Somewhere between the new and the old
Somewhere between who I am and who I used to be
Somewhere in the middle, You'll find me

Somewhere between the wrong and the right
Somewhere between the darkness and the light
Somewhere between who I was and who You're making me
Somewhere in the middle, You'll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Fearless warriors in a picket fence, reckless abandon wrapped in common sense
Deep water faith in the shallow end and we are caught in the middle
With eyes wide open to the differences, the God we want and the God who is
But will we trade our dreams for His or are we caught in the middle
Are we caught in the middle

Somewhere between my heart and my hands
Somewhere between my faith and my plans
Somewhere between the safety of the boat and the crashing waves

Somewhere between a whisper and a roar
Somewhere between the altar and the door
Somewhere between contented peace and always wanting more
Somewhere in the middle You'll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Lord, I feel You in this place and I know You're by my side
Loving me even on these nights when I'm caught in the middle

Sharing my prayer with you

James 1:19 says, Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
Take that in..
Ask God to touch your heart and let this words and verses take effect on your heart.
Repeat that verse a few times before moving on, really read it slow and take in every word of it.


God is saying be swift to hear,, MEANING: fast, rapid, quick, speedy to hear what is being said.

What does that really mean? How can it affect us in life? When our husband’s or co workers, or parents say something we do not want to hear, something that isn’t to our liking, or even criticism, instead of getting angry and saying something back we as CHRISTIAN'S should listen to what they say. We should take it in, and think about every word they say with out reacting.

Next, he say’s be Slow to speak. Which doesn’t mean making a smart comment back to someone, or arguing your side of the story, it means you have been swift to hear what that person say’s, you have thought about their statements, you have prayed about their statement, and NOW you are ready to speak.

Lastly, he say’s be slow to wrath. What does wrath mean you may ask? It means anger, rage, or fury. The Lord himself has said to be SLOW (unhurried, leisurely) to anger. He is saying do not react to someone’s comment, if it offends you do not get angry and argue or call names. You are to be slow to anger.

I believe that if we take time to listen to what someone is saying, instead of jumping to conclusions which we are all guilty of, a lot of argument’s or hasty feelings will not surface. We should look to our bible, our HOLY BIBLE, the ALIVE word of God, to see us through life’s trails. It’s our own living version of life for dummies.. **Wink**

To finish, another verse that has been imprinted into my heart this week is Psalms 119 Verse 165

“Great peace have they which love thy law: and NOTHING shall offend them.”

I place emphasis on the word NOTHING, as you will see later.

Let’s break this verse down…

Great peace- Great comfort, great harmony, great calm.

Have they which love thy law- thy commandment, thy rule, thy decree.

And NOTHING- the Lord said NOTHING, which means not anything, not anybody, and not any other.

Shall Offend them- Offend what does that truly mean, insult, upset, affront you.

So the Lord has clearly spoken and said, Great peace, Great comfort, have they which love thy law, they who love his commandment, his rules, his guidelines to life, and nothing he said, NOTHING under no circumstances shall offend or insult them.

We as Christian’s should not allow anyone to cause or deposit hate into our heart. Nothing anyone say’s will offend me according to the Lord, I will take mean words like a grain of salt, and it will mean NOTHING to me.

The word nothing is so powerful. It’s not black and white, it’s no where in the middle. It is what it is, NOTHING shall offend them.

Thank you Lord for blessing me with the understanding of your word today, I am covered with sin, and I have a sinful nature that I am trying to break free of, and with your scripture it has taught me to be quiet and listen. You patience is overwhelming my spirit. It is you Lord I long to be with, thank you for making me whole, Thank you for showing me the way, and most of all Thank you for loving me, You don’t have to, but you do. With every step I take and ever breath I breath you are there guiding me along the way. Your presence is what keeps me whole.

Back to normal!

Well, it's been a few days since I have been able to post, so let's pick up where I left off. On Dec 2, which was a Tuesday, I stayed the night with my aunt Kathy and Danae. We had a pretty good time we decorated all 3 of my aunts trees, and then watched some TV before going to bed. Then Wednesday night my mom and aunt Kathy came over for dinner and we watch a movie, and then my mom stayed the night with me... That takes us to Thursday, the day before my husbands return... =) After debating back and forth I decided to stay the night with my Dad in Macclenny. After all he begged me to come out, so I packed my stuff after double checking with Michael and him assuring me they would not be home until 1 or 2 Friday afternoon. My dad picked me up and off I went. When I woke up Friday morning before the sun was even up, I seen a missed call on my cell phone with a message to follow. I heard hey baby, I am home we decided to drive Thur the night, I am going to sleep so don't call me back and I will see you tonight.. WHAT!! Not fair,, I was supposed to greet him at the door with a big hug and kiss, or so I thought. So I went to work, leaving early for a Dr appt. When I got home he was still sleeping, so I tip toed around the house just waiting to hear his feet hit the floor.. After standing staring at the door I decided to watch some TV, and then it was the sound I was waiting for,, I HEARD hey baby!! It was like falling in love all over again.. I felt like a school girl with her new found sweet heart. My heart was racing, I blushed, ahh it was him... So we went and laid in the bed, just cuddling. Then we decided to go hunting in the back in the new tree stand Michael and Jeremy built a while back. Its massive with 2 leather office chairs in it,, talk about hunting in style lol. It was such a great afternoon just spending time together. I think I may of convinced Michael that hunting with me has MUCH great benefits, lol.. If you catch my drift... So then Saturday the stubborn man had to work,, so I went to town with momma to do some Christmas shopping. We had plans to go to the light parade in Macclenny but by the time I got back from town it was just to late. =( Oh well, next year.. Sunday we got up and went to church,, then to the pig for lunch, then spent the rest of the day doing some cleaning around the house and outside.. Just busy work,, now it's Tuesday December the 9th,, and let me tell you,, it's soooo great having my husband back.. They are already talking about next year,, Yeah ok... Lol.. never again.. I hope everyone is have a great week,, the holidays are here and things are already getting busier and busier.. It is definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas..


PS: I have some pics from this past week,, I will post them tonight.. =)

Off to Mommys is where I went....

So last night, haha.. I am such a baby! I was soo set on staying alone, so I ordered pizza cuddled up and watched one of my favorite shows, PRIVILEGED. Around 10 I decided to lay in bed and try to sleep, the room was dark, quiet and it just wasnt happening.. I tossed and turned, so I jumped up, grabbed my backpack, packed some things and off to Mommy's I went! It was much more cozy, and the best of all I wasnt alone.. I woke up to some yummy yummy blue berry pancakes... Ooh la la,, they were great!! I went to the Dr yesterday, I have Laryngitis and major ear infections,, luckily I am out of the contagious stage, so I can mingle with friends.. =)

Have a great week guys..

(something for me to remember, in a email from my brother to my mom, 12/2/08: "Well just so you know, your son and daughter love each other very much. Brittany's honestly my best friend.")

This is my brother and Josiah wearing our cold clothes on Thanksgiving.

I miss you Josh!!!

So yesterday was definitely horrible... Not only was I sick ALL day long, I was alone while sick.. The worst, lol... I missed Michael more than ever last night, but he called me around 3 to talk, and to let me know just how much he was missing me, so I caught myself in tears once again. I am soo ready for him to be back,, and it's only Monday,, I have the rest of the week.. lol.. Anywho.. I am going to try and stay the night by myself again tonight,, but may not make it.. See,, I was sick last night and took some NyQuil to help me sleep, and yeah, I was having all kinds of hallucinations and crazy crazy dreams,, =).. So we will see how things go..
