A New Addition!

Well, you can all say “It’s about time!” We have a new addition to our family!

HAHAHA. Is that what ya’ll thought! Nope! Not yet! Meet Dudley.

I know it may sound a little trivial to say that God helped us find Dudley, but really He did! We were driving around the larger town in our area when the Humane Society had a special storefront set up that day. We stopped in so Noah could see the animals. He loves any kind of animal and for the most part is pretty gentle with them. We walked in, and there was the sweetest Beagle. He was so small, and layed there while Noah and Lance petted him. Then I found out Dudley was 3 years old, housebroken and wouldn’t get any bigger. I was sold. Now, the tricky part? He was pretty much an indoor dog, and Daniel wanted an outdoor dog. I just wanted a dog for Lance and Noah to grow up with. After driving around and thinking on it, we went in and adopted Dudley! He is SO sweet. He is calm and cool in the house, goes straight to his kennel at night to lay down (I put in soft blankets for him), and hasn’t had one accident! He is all Beagle, loves to chase rabbits and birds, so we have to keep him on a leash at all times since we live by some woods. I think Daniel is warming up to him. Daniel, our boy in college, LOVES LOVES LOVES Dudley. This dog loves to travel with him in his truck!

Sorry about the false alarm, folks, just thought I would have some fun with ya!

Coming soon…anniversary pictures!! Boy what a cool suprise we had for Daniel! Hey all you SFSers write me and tell me what you thought!!!

10 years and still counting

10 years ago today I married my soul mate. God chose him for me long ago, even when I thought boys were icky. You know, when we first got married it was HARD. We were older, had both graduated college and knew what we were supposed to do…we would just forget to tell each other. Let me tell you how we met!

Many moons ago, Daniel and I each had a roomate in college(we went to different colleges) that met each other (through me) and eventually got married to each other. I was in the wedding, and Daniel was there to help out however he could. Well, Julie and Kevin decided that we needed to be together. We met at the wedding…a little awkward, because all of Kevin and Daniel’s friends from college were ready for us to meet. They grilled me at the wedding reception, wanting to know if I was good “wife” material. They must have approved…haha.

Daniel really impressed me at the wedding reception. I could tell he had a servant’s heart. I would look down and my glass was almost empty…the next time I looked down it was full! He would pull out the chair for me, and when I mentioned how I loved the meatballs, he came back witha plate full of them for me! I wanted to share them with him, but he wouldn’t eat any until I was full. Wow, now that’s impressive!

I was hooked.

A couple of weeks later I took my spring break and stayed with his mom and dad and “got to know him a little better.” We’ve been together ever since.

Now things are smoother, amazing, and fun. I love my family. I am blessed by my husband. He is amazing, loving and has the most amazing servants heart. I learn from him everyday and am sooo blessed. 10 years? WOW. I can’t wait to see how the next 10 years are going to be like!

I love you Daniel!! I am blessed by you!

Welcome to the World of Busy

I have been busy.
Way busy.
Too busy, because everytime I sit at the computer to write something bloggish I realize that I have a TON of editing to do so why in the world would I do something silly like blog when I could be working instead?

Crazy, I know.

So here I am, stupid late at night, with the need to say something.

In the chaos, God is still in control, right? RIGHT.

Just thought I would give my mind some mental victory and kick satan in the pants a little.

Go God.

I will write more soon…and let you know some amazing updates!

By the way…he’s walking now!
