Special Night

Last night, my hubby & I had our families over for a Pre-Christmas dinner. It’s so hard to spend much time with everyone when we’re trying to make our rounds on Christmas Eve & Christmas so we decided that since we have our house now…we can invite our family over and spend a little more quality time with everyone. We’re so blessed to have such a wonderful family. Another reason why last night was a special night is because it marked our one year anniversary since we’ve moved into our house. I can’t believe we’ve lived in our house for one year…time is flying by.

I hope you all have a wonderful and very Merry Christmas!!!

Will I ever be smart?

Well, I’ve made a big decision….I’ve decided to go back to college. I’m going back to get my MS in Curriculum & Instruction, concentrating in reading.

I’ve had some circumstances happen this year (at work) that have opened my eyes to the fact that I might not want to be a classroom teacher for the rest of my life. I want to have options and I know I need to do something now before I have kids.

So, I go back to school this spring and will hopefully be finished next spring. I’m taking 9 hours this spring so start praying for me now!

I can’t believe……

..that I’ve been married for 3 years!!! That’s right, today is our 3rd anniversary. Three years ago I stood up in front of my closest friends and family and promised to love Steven for the rest of my life. I seriously can’t believe it’s been 3 years already!

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful and loving husband. I did a really good job of picking Mr. Right. He’s sweet, loving, caring and treats me like the queen I am (most of the time). haha Of course, we have our moments…but we always work through our disagreements and come out stronger than before.

The past 3 years have been fun and full of changes. We started our married life out in a small duplex and quickly found out that we needed more space. We have taken some fun trips, Steven got sick…that was a pretty tough time, but he finally pulled through....we both have changed jobs and we built our first home. I’m really excited to see what this next year has in store for us.

I have a picture hanging in my house that says: once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love comes along and brings you a Fairy Tale…. It doesn’t get much better than that! My prayer is that God will continue to bless our marriage for many, many, many more years to come.

Christmas Time!!!

I finally got my Christmas tree up and decorated this past weekend. I love Christmas time, but I was determined to not put up my tree and decorations until after Thanksgiving.

My Christmas tree is so special…it tells our love story…of all the exciting places my hubby & I have traveled to… Every vacation we go on I always pick up a Christmas ornament.

We also got married a week before Christmas (almost 3 years ago) so of course we had a beautiful Christmas wedding. Some of my closest friends gave us an ornament shower and I just love putting all those beautiful ornaments on my tree every year that our beloved friends and family gave us… It’s so special.

Steven gave me this ornament the day we got married.

We went to the Bahamas for our honeymoon and swam with the dolphins. We stayed at a Sandals was beautiful. I wish we were there now!

We went to Vegas for our 1st anniversary (Dec. '07)

This ornament was giving to us by Paula & Dave when we moved into our new home last year!

My dream is to someday go back to NYC during Christmas time!
