Pro Bieber

This is going to be a very odd post for my blog :) This is probably the last thing anyone would expect to find on my blog-a post about Justin Bieber :) And I know there has been a shortage of cooking posts lately on my blog and for that I'm sorry, I promise one is coming soon! But for now, I want to share some thoughts about Justin Bieber :)

Justin Beiber- I don't follow him much but certainly can't get away from news about him because he is the hot thing right now, so certainly I am hearing the huge uproar people are having about his comments he made to Rolling Stone about his feelings on abortion. His words exactly ""I really don't believe in abortion … It's like killing a baby." When asked about situations in which women become pregnant after being raped, Bieber said he believed "everything happens for a reason," but noted, "I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that." That's his opinion, so no big deal, right? Well a lot of people think it's a big deal and I just have some comments I'd like to share.

What really got me to sit down and write this post were the comments made on the Joy Behar show. She had a panel of people, all slamming the Biebs and one lady made some pretty creepy comments, even going so far to say "why wasn't he aborted?" My stomach got sick. I was in awe while I was listening to this, how is that considered to be an ok thing to say? I am grateful for blogging, it's a wonderful ability to share with others many things including the things you believe, I love these words regarding the sanctify of life, I believe them very strongly, I am entitled to my beliefs, so is Justin Bieber, and so is Ms Behar who disagrees. I will not type in lenghth my opinions about the matter because they are much more eloquently expressed here.

They also commented on the show how young Justin was and how could he have an opinion about such a grown up issue, but if his opinion was the opposite would we even be talking about this? Or would they have said he had such a mature mind? Possibly, who knows. I normally don't interject my personal opinions on my blog much :) however, I have been so unsettled with what I have been hearing that I just felt like getting my opinion out there :)

I am so grateful for the precious little life I have been blessed with and entrusted with. I saw my little Eleni's heart beat at just 6 weeks. It was amazing.

Again, never would I have thought I would be posting about Justin Bieber hehe, but I feel very strongly about this issue. I promise a post will be coming very soon of a lighter topic :) How does ribolita soup sound??

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope you have a great day :)

Still Alive... :)

Hey everyone! Wow it's been a while! So sorry but I have been pretty busy. I have also been living with my mom and don't have my computer so it hasn't been the easiest to blog. But I will try to keep you all updated the best I can until we move. It looks like the big move will take place second week in March. Yikes! I can't believe it's so soon!

So this is how the past 3 weeks have been. Micah had to go through training for the job in Dallas for two weeks. He was able to come home for a weekend and then straight to Chicago to start the job. He was able to come home this past weekend again but is now going to be gone for two more weeks. Not fun! I was talking with a girl in my neighborhood about my husband being gone and she said "I know how you feel my husband has been in Iraq for 6 months." Now the two situations aren't even comparable! I felt pretty dumb acting like being apart for a couple weeks was hard, these military families are amazing to me.

Eleni hasn't been sleeping the best at my moms (she's nine months now, has anyone else had babies who didn't sleep through the night till they were older?) She gets up every couple hours and wont go back to sleep till I nurse her a little. She's also gotten in the habit of sleeping with me at my moms, she wont sleep in her crib at night. So fingers crossed things change! I would even be happy with a 3-4 hour stretch at night:)

So that's what I've been up to, taking care of my child who wont sleep at night while daddy's away. Cooking/baking and taking pics of my creations hasn't been that much of a priority because sometimes I feel like I am just in survival mode :) But I really wanted to update everyone and I promise I will start blogging again! I have made a few yummy things that I really want to try to get up in the next week.

This is a crazy, stressful, wonderful new stage of life :) Moving is beyond stressful, the thought of leaving my family is beyond stressful as well :) but there is a certain excitement that comes with all of this thinking about the new memories I will be making with my own little family in the wonderful city Chicago, have I mentioned how much I LOVE the Midwest? And I know when we go through changes, especially changes that are hard we grow, and we all need some of that:)
