A Fun Day

On Saturday here at our duplex they had a block party and they invited all the residents as well as police, firemen, and EMT's. We had a very fun time. We spent about 2 hours talking to several police as well as the chief of police. They were very friendly and liked talking to us. The fire company brought in a smokehouse RV for the kids to go through and learn about fire safety, and they let them get in the ambulance and police cars. It was very educational!

Book Recommendation

My wonderful Hubby ordered some books and he made sure that he got one for me. It is called Passionate Housewives, Desperate for God, by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald.


I started reading it and I can't hardly put it down, it is SO good, and it is written in a way that is very easy to read, yet challenging. They point out the different lies of feminism and show how God's way of woman being keepers at home is so much more fulfilling. I love reading books like this, it just makes you realize how much beauty there is in doing the seemingly mundane things, for His glory and it also makes your Hubby happy to ; )

On another note, I have been really enjoying this beautiful sunflower that my little sister gave me from her garden, it sure brightens my day, I mean look at it, how could you look at it and NOT smile?!!

In case you didn't know, I am married to the cutest basketball player....

We have been playing basketball a couple times a week, it is a good way to get exercise and it is a lot of fun to!

Of course our game is always interrupted with lots of kisses! We always cheer each other on, I am like "Come on Hubby, you can do it, I know you can", and he is like "I can see it going through the basket already, you just need more confidence"....

Basketball is wonderful!

Our Wonderful Weekend

We had such a nice weekend together..

First of all, we slept in late Saturday morning, which was really nice, as we had stayed up pretty late the night before...

For lunch we went on a date to Chili's, it was delicous.. They even had Blackberry iced tea...yum.
Then since we had a gift card for Lowe's, we went over there "just to look"...We ended up getting:


Then we watched part of Gods and Generals, some clips on youtube of the worst American Idol and Britain's Got Talent auditions...VERY funny!! Then Taylor's friend Zach came over and we had coke floats and popcorn. After Zach left we watched more of Gods and Generals until after midnight.

Sunday I got up and made Chocolate Chip Cookies for church, they were having a fellowship meal. The cookies were a real hit, as usual! We enjoyed getting to know some of the people from church better.

It was just a wonderful weekend, and we certainly love each other more than we ever did.

And now, I am eating one of my favorite snacks and waiting for hubby to get home..
