We had a whirlwind of a weekend!! Peter and I spent Thursday through Sunday, really Saturday at midnight, apart. Boo! Peter attended a conference in North Carolina with some of the pastor's from church, and I travelled to San Antonio with Jourdan and Kristen to lead worship at a conference called Next Step. Little did I know I would run into a few people from my past! :) They put us up in the CUTEST little bed and breakfast in downtown Boerne! We loved it!! Here are a few pics from our trip. Jourdan's room had a "Fiesta" theme. It was way over the top, but cute at the same time. Kristen and I shared a room with an Asian theme! Our bed was so comfortable! :)

I don't really have much else to say. I'm sad it's not cool yet. I don't care, I'm still making Chicken Tortilla Soup tonight. :)
Congrats to Laura and Matthew on a beautiful baby girl!!!!!!

I cried...

I cried my way out of a speeding ticket today. Warning only.
I was going 27 in a 20 and the LIGHTS WERE NOT BLINKING! That was my defense. School was not out. So, I cried out of frustration, and only got a warning. Don't worry, my manipulation hasn't worked everytime. I PROMISE I didn't create these tears. They just came!!!


The Game of Tag about your MAN:

3. How long dated? 2 and a half months. :)
4. How old is your man? 28
5. Who eats more? Ummm, probably him. He eats more times in the day.
6. Who said "I love you" first? He did - and then I did right back! Of course followed by crying. A good crying though...
7. Who is taller? Peter
8. Who sings better? Well, I have to say me considering I majored in it in college, although he sings VERY WELL.

11. Who does the laundry? Me

23. Who kissed who first? Ummmmmm, me on accident. But, real kiss, that would be Peter. He called me Delilah at the time. hahaah

Happy Birthday Peter!


1. He has such a heart for people and serving others.
2. He wakes up every morning and spends time in the word praying.(He probably prayed for you.)
3. He LOVES to build things, or really to work with his hands and get dirty! That's come in really handy and will be VERY handy in the next months to come. (That's a story for later.)
4. He serves whole-heartedly in The Village Recovery ministry and is very passionate about mentoring other men.
5. He cooks dinner for me now since I work until 7. He's about ready for me to just go ahead and quit. YEA RIGHT!
6. He loves dogs as much as I do. (Well, maybe not AS MUCH as I do.)
7. He is VERY clean. He has spurred me on to be a clean person. He taught me how to fold shirts and towels, and EVEN how to make the bed every morning!
8. He constantly makes me laugh.
9. He holds my hand in public. (I say this because he is not a touchy/feely person. But some how, since marrying me, things have changed.)
10. He is H.O.T.
11. He does the dishes after I cook. :)
12. He is Dave Ramsey Junior. This is important because he effectively manages our money and I don't have to worry about anything ever.
13. He looks really great in Spandex. (See a few previous posts ago.)

18. He loves community and friends as much as I do making it hard for us to have alone time. :)
19. He's precious to me in so many ways.
20. He's a fabulous dresser. (Even if he wants to wear his nike, black and red and gray, running shoes with every outfit.
21. He meets me for lunch every Tuesday. :)
22. He enjoys my cooking. (I actually cooked for him twice this weekend!!)
23. He gives me a shopping budget each month. :) MAN I'm selfish! This is supposed to be about Peter! :)
24. He has some AMAZING curly locks. :)
25. He has a beautiful singing voice and embraces music as much as me!
26. He is physically fit and very fast! (this makes it hard for me to EVER run with him.) But, he does. He jogs right along side of his heavy-breathing-SLOW-running Wife. :) He used to be called "White Lightning."
27. He is an UNBELIEVABLE husband. I couldn't ask for a more encouraging man of God!
28. He is my husband and I love him with all of my heart.

The ENd.

Happy Birthday my sweet.

A New Day, A New Blog

Sorry, I don't have pictures again. Scratch that, I do have pictures, but I keep forgetting to bring my camera cord up to work. Sorry Sorry. But, I do have a new blog background! At least it's something new to look at.

We had a great weekend in Wichita Falls. I will post pictures on Monday, I PROMISE. I had lots of baby holding time with Layla Grayce. She is beautiful and is already smiling at 2 months. Precious. There are no other words.

We celebrate 2 birthdays this weekend. Sweet Peter's and Natasha Lee's. :)
I'm going to get up early in the morning and cook him some breakfast casserole and some zuchinni bread....pray I wake up since it is Saturday. His actual birthday is on Monday, but he leaves VERY early. I'm barely conscious when he leaves......
Then we will finally get to spend the day together! Praise the Lord.

Last night, Peter gave his re-written testimony at The Village Recovery. The last time he read it was a year and half ago. There have been updates of the Lord's hand on his life. I teared up listening to the mighty power of Jesus in his life! He is such and amazing man. Monday I will post more on him as a tribute for his birthday. Stay tuned.

I hope everyone has a grand weekend. :)

I've become a TERRIBLE blogger and PICTURE TAKER the last few months!

My camera battery has been down, and I couldn't find my charger until about 15 minutes before I had to be at Natalie and Josh's wedding. Of course I took it with me and plugged it in at the church in time for all the pics to start! Stupid me...left it in there until AFTER the reception! I'm sure I can get some pics from the other girls.

Blogging. I just really don't like to write a blog without pics! It's not NEAR as fun!! So, I just read everyone else's and neglect mine on purpose.

Things have been really busy since the last time I posted. I've had lunch with some really fun girls! Actually, if you go to the poefam on the right you can see some pics of lunch with Sarah and Brittney and Quinn. She even sent me the pics, but I'm not going to post them. Peter and I went to Houston a few weekends ago to celebrate Gammur and Pop-Pop's 60th wedding anniversary! It was so relaxing just to sit around and talk. Peter and I cooked them an anniversary dinner consisting of steak, Baked Sweet Potatoes, Asparagus and Peach Cobbler! I was full.
The next morning, they cooked Peter and I a great breakfast! It's funny, I have never really known what it's like to enjoy spending time with my grandparents, sadly enough, but I had such a great time with Peter's grandparents. That will be something that I will stress when my parents become grandparents. I'm sure my mom and Peter's mom will want LOTS AND LOTS of time with our kids. So, I won't really have to worry about that AT ALL!!!

This past weekend was PACKED with an itinerary all about NATALIE AND JOSH! Friday night we went to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner! We had a great time hanging out with old friends and laughing our heads off. We went to bed after midnight. Saturday morning Cassy had COHEN!!!!! You can click on her link on the right to see the pics of him!! I was so excited to be an aunt again! Natasha came and picked me up and we went shopping for the lingerie shower that night. But, for most of the day we spent at an unbelievable house in Highland Park. One of Natalie's K-Life girl's hosted the lunch and pool party! It was SOOO NICE!!!! I didn't even get sunburned. It's been a long time since I have vegged at a pool. That night we ate at Chip's Hamburger's on Lovers Lane and then had Natalie's lingerie shower! It was a blast. Again, I didn't go to bed until after midnight. I tell you, I was feeling it too!!
Sunday morning I woke up, got ready and headed to the hospital to see Cassy and Cohen. It was a quick, but really sweet time!! After that, I headed to North Park to find a brown dress for the wedding. I had faith that I could find one in a few hours. :) I really only had an hour to look. Thank the good Lord I found one in time to be at the church at 1:30pm. Natalie had us slaving setting up the reception area! :) haha. The wedding started at 4:30 and after the wedding we hung out with friends...UNTIL AFTER MIDNIGHT! WHY did I do that to myself.

Monday morning...NO LABORING DAY!!!! Peter and I woke up at 10 and headed to "Ham and Eggs" for breakfast followed by a trip to the grocery and movie store. We rented movies and didn't plan on leaving the house the rest of the day. We stuck by our word and I barely got off the couch. IT WAS GLORIOUS!!!!

Anyways, so that's been my last couple of weeks. I will try to start taking pictures more since my battery is now charged. ;)

Thanks for bearing with me on this one...
