What is it about Weddings?

What is it about weddings that always makes you go back to your own wedding?

We went to see two friends of ours get married this weekend. It was a simple, small wedding and so that made it all the more enjoyable. I sat there with my hubby and our two little rug rats and thought of our wedding nearly 9 years ago. (Gosh has it been that Long?!?) I remember I wasn't really nervous till we walked up the stairs to the church and I knew it was time. Poor Damon nearly bolted after they pronounced us man and wife because he HATES being in front of a large crowd.  We had friends and family there and it was great. I think looking back now, I think all songs for a wedding shouldn't be all sweet and sappy. My favorite one right now is Glass by Thompson Square. It explains that we are all broken people, but the paths that we've taken have brought us here together, and we don't know if it will work or not, but we'll give it all we've got.
   The wedding is easy, marriage is hard. It's about sticking together through whatever life has thrown at you and being able to roll with it together. You have to learn together or grow apart. You have to forgive and forget, love, and be humble at times. And have to laugh alot. :)

Friday Favorites (Review of You're Already Amazing"

One of my favorites is a new book that I read in two days. You're Already Amazing by Holley Gerth. The inCourage website is doing a Book study on the book and I would encourage anyone to join it.  Holley writes with a wonderful conversational style that is easy to follow, and feels like a girlfriend that you've just set down with to talk. The book follows several different topics that speak to all women such as "Who am I, Really? and "What does God want me to do with my life?" You put down the book feeling a joy that seeps into all of you by knowing that God considers you amazing, and an understanding that you can finally consider yourself amazing as well. I would say that any woman needs to read this book, it is an absolute joy!

Wordless Wednesday

Landon's teacher text me this picture with the caption "mom put some clothes on that boy next time it rains!!"

Then Landon's next "desk" neighbor saw what he wrote & said " ewwww gross, you don't wear any clothes when it rains?!?"

Landon at this time said "I'm changing my answer!!"

Oh my, I'm still laughing over this one!!

Marvelous Monday

Today has been a Marvelous Monday...sort of.

Today was our first day back to work and school after a busy Spring Break. We are all tired after the fun we had in Houston over the past four days and the going..going...going.

I'm not going to focus on the fact I got a ticket today for an expired inspection sticker. Yes it went out in December, and no I haven't even thought about getting it renewed. Is it going to cost probably $170..arrgggg. Ok I'm done.

I'm going to focus on the fact that our baseball practices, t-ball practice, and Scouts was cancelled due to a large thunderstorm was moving through. This means that we got home at a decent hour and I got in my PJs by 6:30. I made homemade stroganoff, garlic bread, and corn and we watched Frozen planet.

I'm going to focus on the fact my son is transfixed on Frozen planet as we speak and I'm fixing to go get the chocolate chip cookies I made and I'm going to share with my family.  I'm going to focus on the fact that my ticket reminded a dear friend her inspection is out on her car, so hope she can get it taken care of before she has a incident like mine. LOL

I'm going to focus on the feeling of being blessed to be healthy, and that I'll get to sleep in my own bed tonight with rain and the thunder (and no hail, please, Lord)  I'm going to focus on my son hopping up in the chair next to me while watching the beautiful show Frozen Planet. He's so interested in the penguins since they just studied them in school.

Have a blessed week!!

Spring Break!!!

Awwww!!! I am officially so excited! We are now in full spring break mode. This means sleeping in and getting ready to have some fun with friends.

It's been crazy busy with Landon being in Scouts, starting baseball (real baseball, not t-ball,  crazy!!), school stuff and homework. Emma starts t-ball soon, and she is my little spitfire.

I'm soon to be starting on my Comprehensive Exam for my Masters degree. *GULP* This means that if I pass it, then all I have to do is keep my grades up for the next three semesters in order to graduate in 2013.   A comp exam basically takes everything that you've learned so far and puts it all together so they know that you have actually learned something from all the money you've spent on classes.

Well I better get started getting ready for the day, some more cleaning to do before the FUN begins!!

Weekend Wrap-up

Although this weekend was the first weekend in awhile we didn't have "anything" on the schedule per say, we were still plenty busy.

  Saturday the hubby played Mr. Fix-it and fixed three lawn mowers, two for his family and ours, and then got several "honey-do's" around the house done. Then today we had church which was Boy Scout & Girl Scout Sunday and had lunch afterwards.   Homework is done although I have to start all over again this week. Only one more week and then spring break :)

In our Sunday School class we are reading a book called A Case For Christ. Although we've only just started it seems rather interesting.
