Thoughts from me - a preacher's wife, farmer's daughter, mom, and nurse. Posts are mainly intended to help me journal the events of my life - topics will include kids, church, work, marriage, life in general,
and of course my dogs . . . and whatever else I feel compelled to write about.

Wedding Update in bullet form

  • Megan and Adam have their first premarital counseling session with Pastor Zemple on Thursday. I think he is more excited than they are!
  • The church threw a WONDERFUL shower for Megan a couple Sundays ago! I am working on a post with pictures from this shower and the one my sister and nieces gave Megan - hope to have it soon.
  • Mary, my three year old niece who is to be one of the flower girls, is not exactly excited about the wedding. Translated=she runs off crying anytime Megan's wedding is mentioned.
  • On the other hand, Gracie (a/k/a three year old niece and other flower girl) seems okay with the wedding and, in fact, met James (a/k/a Adam's four year old cousin and ring bearer) and they got along fabulously!
  • We found out that we can't get the gym to start decorating until after 5:30 pm on Thursday! Not good!
  • Centerpiece ideas are coming along.
Overall, progress is being made - although probably not at the speed it should be at this point. Megan stays really busy with college and substitute teaching which doesn't leave a lot of time to work on the wedding.

Three Months!!!

The whole reason I started this blog was to help chronicle memories - you know, kind of like keeping a journal.

Unfortunately, living this life has proven too time consuming at times to take time to journal it! Whew!!!

I wish I would have blogged about:

Joel's amazing soccer game Tuesday night where he scored two goals in less than 5 minutes!
Levi's recent car purchase where he got the DEAL OF A LIFETIME!!!! and a project to boot!
My ohmygoodnesswhathaveigottenmyselfinto situation at work.
Megan's college adventures and the fact that typing those words doesn't require me taking Zantac first.
Brian's Auto Mechanic 101 course and why he hates automobiles and would prefer we buy a horse.
My near come to fists, knock-down, drag out with my doctor! Well, I guess I made it out to be more than it really was. Imagine that! lol

Anyway . . . the point is a lot has been going on! Not to mention the fact that we are now knee deep into . . .


Three months! Three months!! Three months!!! THREE MONTHS!!!

Sometimes I wake up in a cold sweat just thinking about it only to find Brian sitting in bed with a little short, stubby pencil crunching numbers!

Ha! Who am I kidding? Nothing keeps that man awake at night.

I have decided that these precious days need to be documented. I mean if anything is journal worthy it is the days leading up to your baby girl getting married, leaving home, and making her own little nest!

Posts will probably be short and to the point and will hopefully included pictures a long the way.
