About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

18 years....

Isn't he cute? He's all mine.:) Today we celebrate 18 years together.... I have made a list of 18 of the many reasons why I love my wonderful husband....

1. He tells me I'm pretty.
2. He puts up with my crafting into the wee hours.
3. He watches sappy and scary movies with me.
4. He is not threatened by Edward or Jacob.
5. He tucks me in when he leaves for work in the morning.
6. He does "girlie things" (like going to the American Girl Place) because he loves his girls.
7. He fills up my car with gas so I don't have to.
8. He is the best Dad.
9. He is my own personal Handyman!
10. He is a secret romantic.:)
11. He kept the fire going all through the night during the last ice storm so we would all stay warm.
12. He drives on all our trips. How he can keep going for 6 hours+ is amazing to me. I just fall asleep...
13. He listens to my worries and complaints. He is a saint!
14. He keeps me warm.:)
15. He is reliable. If he says he will do something- he does. I know this doesn't sound romantic, but it is...
16. He likes my cooking, but takes me out to eat so I don't have to...
17. He has the cutest dimples.
18. He is always there for me.....

I love you, Sweetie.....
