New Shirts

I picked up a few shirts in Houston and I just LOVE them! Two of them have the new 'burn out' look, which is so HOT right now! I love them....

My Man

Today is our 14th wedding anniversay. Wow. Fourteen. I still remember the feeling I had when I first met him. I still get that feeling.
But after adding three kids to the mix, sometimes your marriage slips through the cracks. You are so worried about being a good mom and being a good dad that being an amazing wife or husband gets forgotten. Our marriage is good, not perfect, but good.
One thing that I have decided for this coming year of our marriage is to get our picture together more often. We have these pictures from his birthday in January, and the pic that our son took on Easter. That is it. I want and need more.

Another thing that I need to do more of in the fifteenth year of bliss, is be alone with him. Make a date. It seems that the only time we are alone together is in front of the tv before bed. This is great, don't get me wrong. But tonight, when we had more than an hour to talk without an interruption from a small child, was good. Really good. I love how hard he works, his sense of humor, how he can make me laugh even when I am mad at him. I love his patience, and the sound of his voice, but I do not like his snoring. I love his smile, and his 'kicker' legs.
I love this man, and want to forever.

The Zoo

Me: "I forgot my camera!"

E: "You can just pretend to take pictures."

Luckily, we saw a friend at the zoo and I asked her to snap a picture of the two of us together so we could remember this spontaneous outing. To tell the story straight, I saw this friend and we chatted for awhile, I thought about asking her to take our picture with her camera, but didn't want to sound dumb. Then Ella wanted to get going in her adventure alone at the zoo, so we said goodbye and walked to another exhibit.I kept thinking about asking our friend to take a picture, but then kept putting it out of my mind. We then walked back to where my friend was and another friend was there! We talked again, and I thought again about the picture. Finally, I just went ahead and asked her. And I am so glad that I did! Look at this snapshot....

Just before our ride on the carousel started, Ella turned and whispered to me: "You are my most favorite girl in the world." I had to ask her again what she said.....
Then I was glad that we forgot about all that needed to get done today, and we went to the zoo.

Yes, life DOES seem perfect on blogs.

Ella also asked me if we could buy a goat today. She said that she would keep it in a cage in her room. With the way her room looks right now, it seems a goat has been living there for weeks!

Once again, I have finished my kiddos' school yearbook. WHEW! This time around was good, mostly because I had some help gathering the photos. Now that I have done this for 2 years, I am stepping aside to let someone else have a chance at the madness. {No llamas were hurt at Family Fun Night, nor during this blog post!}
