Expect and Aspire

It is certainly good to be back after a much needed break.  There’s nothing like a little vacation to get you feeling rejuvenated.  So many things have occurred in just the short time we have not been blogging.  Kendra has a new niece, the country has a new president, and sadly America lost another batch of great pop culture icons. I’m certain the beginning of 2017 was welcomed with open arms by many!

When a new year approaches, so does a list of resolutions that we will set up for ourselves, and for the majority, fail before the 31 days of January are even over with.  We stopped with the resolutions a long time ago because we realized we were just setting ourselves up. This year we decided to do a list of things expected for ourselves.  We would like to share a couple of our expectations and aspirations for 2017:

Kendra: I EXPECT to read the Bible completely through by the end of the year.  It’s not just my goal to say I was able to read through it, but to utilize it as a tool and have a better understanding of it, especially because of the world we live in today. 

Misty: I EXPECT to find a new church home.  It’s been a long time that Dave and I have called a church “home” but we truly miss it!  We haven’t lost our relationship with God but we miss the fellowship you find at church. 

Speaking of homes, we ASPIRE to gussie up our homes a little bit. 
Misty: To update the interior with new flooring, paint and light fixtures. 
Kendra: to give the exterior some sprucing up, such as new windows and siding.  If you are reading this and know of any good siding companies, flooring guys (or gals) painters, etc., feel free to leave their name in the comments! J

We EXPECT to make our health and the health of our families a priority:   Of course everyone sets out to lose weight and that is a benefit we want to receive from this but we want to get ourselves and our families off prescription medicines for Diabetes, Fibromyalgia and high blood pressure.   

And last but not least, We ASPIRE to be faithful to this blog for the 2017 year.  We want to be accountable in our writing efforts.  Most of all we want to entertain our awesome readers!  Hope you all aspire and achieve great things for yourselves this year! Have a blessed week!



  1. I aspire to keep myself sane and family alive and taken care of! Lol But I really love your new years expectations and aspirations!

  2. We hope you have the best 2017 ever!!!! One day at a time, one goal at a time! Xoxo
