Are you "Alive"?

Yesterday morning when I woke up,
I had no Idea the day that was in store for me.
I didn't know that it would be a turning point in my life.
I knew and have known for a while now
that I had be missing something.
The thing was, I didn't know what.
I have a wonderful Hubby,
An amazing Boogs,
A house, cars,
family, friends.
What else can a girl ask for?
Well, I had no idea I was missing something
so huge, so big, that I once had but went missing for a while.

It was the Love and the Joy and many other feelings
that are a gift when you feel the Love of God!

I wasn't alive.
I was dead.
I had no idea how dead I was.
I felt empty at times and now all I can feel is full!
I'm sure to some of you this seems like gibberish.
If you don't know what I am talking about,
I pray that you will ask God to make you feel the way I do.
Because He will!

Do you know what you would die for?
I do and am so empowered by it!
His love is amazing and Everlasting!

Still in Honeymoon Stage

At this time in our lives we have a lot of people getting married.
We have a wedding to go to, it seems like, every other week.
With every wedding we go to,
My Hubby and I look at each other and fall back in love.
Not that we have ever been "Out" of love with one another
but you know, that can't stop holding hands,
completely engrossed in what the other is saying,
there is no one else that exists kind of love.

With every wedding we attend,
I immediately go back to the night of our wedding.

With all of our family and friends there.
All that hard work that my momma and I put in to make
it the most beautiful wedding ever (in our opinions of course)
I think of the fact that it was the first time My hubby went out
on the dance floor with me and didn't step off.

We danced ALL night!

Then my mind goes to wonderful Honeymoon that we
had in New York City at Christmas time!
It can't get prettier than that.
Ice Skating in Central Park,
Eating in some really awesome restaurants,
Being on the Today Show,
and then being on David Letterman.

Then what my mind really goes to,
What I focus on the most when I see a
New Bride and Groom say I Do,
is thinking about moving in with my Hubby.
Having our First Christmas together where we
gave each other like 1 gift because that was all we
could afford but we did it on our own.
I think about our tiny little apartment that
we didn't even have room for a dinning table
but that didn't stop us from having friends over for dinner.
Mostly, I remember that indescribable feeling of happiness.
The feeling of knowing that every night I get to
return home and have him by my side.

This year will be 5 Years of Marriage

and sometimes, with out realizing it,
I think we have only been married for 2.
We have been through our ups and downs for sure
but I still can't help feeling that feeling and falling,
deeper, more madly in love with my Hubby.
Plus, he just makes it so easy sometimes.

Writers Block {or just Lazy}

I know it has been a while.
No good projects.
Just nothing going up.
I think I have a case of writers block.
Or maybe it is called being lazy.

Well, I can't say that I have been lazy anywhere but here.
I'm preping myself and my husband to be in a wedding.
Not just any wedding, one of our best friends.
After them starting to date because of our wedding,
they are finally getting married!!!!

We are also getting ready to get family pictures taken,
preparing for preschool,
trying to finish crafts that I have started,
and  take in this last bit of summer.

So, I guess you can just say that I have been lazy here.
I'm so sorry.
I hate doing that but there is only so much to go around.

Besides, if I was going to be lazy,
this is where you would find me:

My Weekend {Poor Foot}

So I wanted to let you all know what
I have been up to this weekend.
My wonderful hubby took me on a date
to a Thai Restaurant, even though he hates Thai.

He proceeded to feel sick
(not sure if it was the food or not)
Ha! Ha!

I was taking care of him and getting Boogs down for bed.
They I decide to be a child
and not walk down the stairs properly.
I instead, try and walk 2 steps at a time. 
Well, to much to my dismay,
my bottom foot slips, I land on my big toe,
and this is what happens

(In case you can't tell, it is my left foot)
 Let me just tell you, It hurt so bad.
Actually it still does.
Partly my fault it still hurts,
I don't understand the meaning of "Stay off the foot"

What can I say, I'm a mom,
a wife,  very active at our church,
and can't miss a wedding to save my life.

Therefore, it has been a long road to recovery.
Here we are, almost 5 days later.
This is what it looks like now.

Lots of Blue and Purple!

(Please ignore the horrible polish job)

After some Ibuprofen and anti-inflammatory,
and lots of ice, I am doing better.
Still hurts, still need to ice it.
We are surviving though.
I just hope I can fit into some
cute heals for a wedding I'm in
that is next weekend.

We shall see!

Late Again

So I have to say, I'm sorry again.
It has been at least a week since I posted.
I don't know if it is a legitimate excuse but
I have been working on Preschool stuff for Boogs.
I am going to do Homeschooling Preschool for him!

I'm a little freaked about it because I have
nothing in my background for teaching.
I decided to do this because Boogs is really smart
and tends to perform higher than his age.
I wanted to keep challenging him but
when we checked into Preschools, we were shocked!

We wanted him to go to a Christian Preschool
that was Educational focused
(if I just wanted him to do crafts all day I could do that)
Well when we checked into it, the one that we feel in love with
would have ran us about $1800 to $2700 a year depending
on what programs we had him in.
The goal is for me to quit working, not get a full time
job to pay for preschool.
Therefore, I chose to do it from home.
I had no idea the prep and planning it would entail.
I am trying to get by on the el cheapo budget I have
So I don't want to just go and buy curriculum.

I did come across one site that is really throw.
It has really helped me a lot.
ABC Jesus Loves Me

I would love to write longer but I am supposed to be
starting preschool in about 2 weeks with a lot more prep
to do. Wish me luck!
