Friday's With Dave!!!!!!

I don't know what Jon & I are going to do? We only have one more chapter left of our game! How are we going to bond if we don't have to kick any mercenaries butts?

I guess we'll just have to find a new addiction.

In separate more important news.... Dave is spending the night! Jon & I are so excited! We always seem to let loose & have more fun when Dave is around. And besides, that means tonight we're going to have mexican food at Beto's & play Stacker! That is Dave's all time favorite arcade game. Its going to be one crazy night that is for sure!

Movie Night

I love going to the movie theaters! I mean I really love it! But my husband posed the question: whats so great about them?

Its true they're sticky & noisy. And sometimes you happen to sit in front of that guy who is 7 feet tall. And still, sometimes you end up in a group of people who laugh at all the right places, and the entire theater smells like fresh popcorn, and the chairs are the comfy reclining kind, and who can forget the brand new exciting previews you can't see anywhere else?

Unfortunately newly married couples do not often have the luxury of going to the movies (unless they are treated by friends & family) and Jon & I are no different.

But last night was monumental! Jon had purchased a "movie kit" complete with Root Beer Bottles & Candy & popcorn. And we pulled our chairs up close to the TV & watched our first Blue Ray DVD, Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince! And let me tell you, it was amazing. It was the first time I had that theater excitement in my own home! Everything was there (minus the previews & laughing people)but those are things that can easily be replaced but the warmth of your home and the comfort of the pause button & the bathroom being so assessable.

I can't say that I will never want to go to the theater again, but knowing that I can feel that movie feeling at home makes life seem much more bearable!

Thank you husband!

What A Wonderful Weekend...

Because I colored my hair & consequently look like snow white...
Because Jon & I bought "Army of Two: 40th Day" for our PS3 and I kicked some mercenary butts...
Because I bought the liquid liner I've been wishing for...
Because I played a game of tournament golf with Dave & he won...
Because I saw Planet 51 and laughed till I cried...
Because I ordered the newest Harry Potter on Blue Ray from Netflix & it's coming Monday...
Because I had pizza delivered from Papa Johns...
Because I slept in...
Because my skinny jeans stretched out enough for me to wear them...
Because my husband loves me... why I had a wonderful weekend.

Romantic Glowsticks

Tonight I had the most wonderful surprise when I came home. My husband, Jon, had set up our table with glowsticks (rather than candles) and prepared steaks for us! It was the sweetest and most wonderful surprise. Then, after that he got hot water and lotion and massaged my hands & feet. And to top it all off, he had rented the chick flick "P.S. I Love You" for us to watch. Complete with a movie kit: Coke, popcorn, chocolate covered raisins & snow caps (my favorite candy to have with movies & popcorn). I had mentioned just yesterday to Jon that it had been a while since we had had a romantic evening to ourselves. He is so thoughtful, always remembering what I say.

The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved in return

Yes... I love technology

So today Jon got to trade in his crap computer (which they've tried to fix 4 times) and trade it for... drum roll please... a MAC! Life is good, o yes, life is good. And, last week we received our tax return and... drum roll please... we got a PS3! Happy early Valentines day!

Last night Jon & I played a demo of a game called "Army of TWO" and I don't really like playing games very often but this one... I liked it! Surprised? So was I! So was Jon! The reason I liked it is because it forces Jon & I to work as a team. I hate when we play against each other because I never win. Never. We have to watch each others backs and take people out for each other. AND the best part is that we can switch the difficulty levels to suit each of us, which means I get to be on the easiest level! I never knew I had such a knack for shooting. Haha.

I am just so happy today. Life is good: my husband loves me, I have a great job, my apartment is clean, and Valentines day is this weekend! I love you honey!

Longest Week

I don't know if I'll be able to remember how many days I've missed and keep count, life has been too crazy for counting lately. I think I'm going to change the direction of this blog. I'm still going to take pictures every day and I'm still going to document my life, but I'm going to think less about how I need to do it. My life has spiraled into a new rhythm, and while I might not yet know how to handle it... its all going to work out in the end. It will.

Family is amazing. On what seemed like the longest hardest week of my life I was shown so much love from those around me. Acts of love & service were some of the most uplifting reminders that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me enough to put these people in my life. Thank you Mike & Brit for that fun normal night we needed so desperately, thank you Aubrey for one of the most heart felt gifts I've ever received, and thank you to all the family who has called just to say that they love us. I am so grateful to have all of you.

I am amazingly blessed. Truly blessed. The Lord loves me, and on hard long weeks you might be able to feel it more because you need it more. I have so much, a loving family, a wonderful full time job that supports us, an apartment that we can afford, there is just so much to be thankful for.
