Happy Thanksgiving

Ok so its been a long time since my last post so first and foremost I'll say sorry for being such a bad blogger lately. Secondly, YAY for my sis-in-law Amy!!! She just got accepted to SIUC PA program for Summer Semester 2009. Then of course I'll have to say Happy Turkey Day people!! And for those of you who don't already know...I'n turning 30 that day too. Ugh, I'd like to say I'm happy about it, but that would be a lie. Anywho, not much new going on on the homefront, just excited to be spending this week with my hubby. He has this entire week off school, so we are finishing up some projects around the house. Oh and he is building a frame for my swing that Roger built me for my birthday.

Thanksgiving is going to be hectic like every other holiday in this family of course. Half the day with his family, half the day with my family...BUT even with all the stress and movement and motion I love it. Mostly because I did not have a lot of it during my growing up years so it's exciting. Then on Friday...it's shopping time!!!! Jayson and I get up at 3 a.m. to get those awesome "doorbuster" specials and such, and sometimes we really do get some major deals. The most exciting part really for me though is that I get to spend all day with my love just hanging out and spending time together. So, now that I have gone on and on about my Thanksgiving...how do you spend yours??

Mom...I'm bored!

So here's what I'm wondering...who came up with the bright idea of the four day weekend for kids? Ya know, cause mom's don't have enough stress Friday through Sunday right?!?! Its not that I don't love my kids, they just get so bored sitting at home all day, and when its 42 degrees outside, there is not much else you can do. I can honestly say I have heard the phrase, "Mom, I'm bored!!" (with a lovely whiny tone) at least 15 times this weekend...and they still have tomorrow off too. Whew, now that I have that off my chest, I'll say thanks for letting me vent, and if you have ANY indoor fun activities besides coloring, painting, movies, etc...let us know!!!

7 Years Later...

Happy Anniversary to Jayson and I!!! Holy cow can you believe Jayson and I have been married 7 years?? I know, it's still a shock to me too. It's amazing for me to actually sit and think about it sometimes. Yeah, 7 years is a long time I know, but the really cool part is that we have been a couple for 15 years. I have officially spent half of my life with this man, and I can't wait to see what the next 15 have in store for us. Thank all of you who sent us cards and well wishes, we love you and so appreciate your love and support these past years.

In honor of our fifteen year love affair *chuckle* I decided to brag a little on my husband and tell you what he did for me this Saturday. I woke up at 7am to go to the church and help Shirley (mother-in-law) with the Relief Society craft day. After painting, gluing, poking, drilling holes, more painting, and then cleaning for almost 10 hours, I was ready to pass out. Then in walks my husband with a change of clothes for me and tells me to not ask questions, just go get dressed and meet him outside. So, I get dressed, tell everyone bye, and meet him in the van. He brought me a brush, ponytail holders, deodorant, etc. all the things I would need to get ready for a date night...how amazing is he right?!? Off we go to dinner in Marion.

On the way there he asks if I would like to do anything after dinner, so we decided to go bowling at the Student Center. While at dinner though, he hands me my card from him and inside are **drum roll please** tickets to a play at The Stage Company opening weekend!!! I know, he rules right!! It was such a good play, written back in the 40's, and instead of adapting it for modern times, they left it as written, and I think it was even more comical that way. If you are curious, it was called The Star Spangled Girl. Anyway, we had a blast, and I got one of the coolest anniversary presents EVER!! In case he reads this, I love you honey & thank you soooo much for an awesome 7 years!! Muahs
