Hallmark commercials...They'll getcha everytime!

So, I was watching TV yesterday afternoon after dropping Caleb off and a hallkmark commercial came on. I have to admit I've lost interest in their commercials since my Dad stopped working there, but this one made me cry instantly! And I'm sure most of you know why....Let's just say my sister's name is Jenny. I mean really...REALLY HALLMARK?! WHY?!

The worst part is...after the commercial was over, I grabbed the remote (yup you guessed it) I pressed the rewind button. :'/

Bye-Bye Bladder!

So, for those of you who don't know. I've been having trouble with my stomach since October. I think I've endured every test known to man-kind. Finally they found that my Gall bladder isn't functioning properly. While it stinks, we're just glad we finally figured out what is causing me so much pain! I will be having it removed next Thursday. They procedure is laproscopic, meaning the make two tiny insisions and remove it with a lazer. I would give you the details, but I'll spare you. ;)

Anywho, I'm pretty nervous, just because the complications post-surgery range from awesomeness to severe nausea etc. Let's be praying for awesomeness, yes?! I find the gall bladder quite confusing. You don't need it to survive, but it does help break down fat and bile to process food through your system. My pray is that my body will figure out how to function without it in the least amount of pain possible.
To help you gain a better understanding of gall bladder anatomy (because i know you'll google it after anyways...) ;) here's a pic to help you out. Don't worry when I googled it, I almost threw up while looking at all the other gall bladder pictures. Gross.

Prayers are appreciated! :/

6 Months and Counting... :)

Wow! I can't believe that today marks the day that I have been married to my best friend for SIX MONTHS! That's half a year! I know to all you pro's out there... (holla out to my parents, married for 30 years, The Crabtree's married for 35 years) 6 months is nothing. But, we think it's pretty awesome! :) We feel so blessed to have such incredible parents to exemplify Godly and loving marriages!
This morning I woke up to my husband (and precious dog) at my bedside, with breakfast! I LOVE breakfast in bed, it's one of my favorite things! It's crazy to think all that has happened just in 6 months, the good and the bad! We've gotten to travel, became an Aunt and Uncle, gotten a dog, learned how to be homeowners, and so much more! Here are some pics from our first 6 months of marriage that I love.
Jonny and I on our honeymoon in St. Lucia. We miss that place everyday and can't wait to go back again. What a magical place!
Our first Christmas together as a married couple!
New Years Eve in St. Louis! What a great trip to just get-a-way! We had such a great time, St. Louis is an incredible city!

The birth of our first nephew, Caleb Xavier!

Trip to Florida for Jonathan's job.

In Houston for the sweet sixteen and elite eight! Sic'em Bears!

Dave Matthews came out with a new single right around the time that we got married, and everytime I hear it, as cheesy as it sounds, I feel on top of the world. Everyday I thank the Lord for my amazing husband. Marriage truely is one of God's greatest gifts. I love spending everyday with my best friend!

"You and Me" By Dave Matthews Band

"We can always look back at what we did

All these memories of you and me baby

But, right now it's you and me forever

And you know we could do better than anything we did

You know that you and me, we could do anything

You and me together, we could do anything baby,

you and me together, yea, yea"
