God Gave Me You

If I were stranded on a desert island I would take a few things with me. My husband, a fishing pole, my bible, and two CD's. What two CD's you ask? Well that's simple Dave Barnes and Phil Wickham. Some of you may already know, I love these artists! I discovered their talent while I was in college (maybe that's why I love them so much, who knows). First I found Dave Barnes through my roommate, Danielle Pape. Jonathan and I had only been dating for a few months and we listened to his music all the time together. I love how music can ignite such special memories in your brain. Listening to Dave NEVER gets old. I love his music so much that we danced our "first dance" as a married couple to Dave Barnes, " I have and I always will". And at our wedding we had Phil Wickham's "Divine Romance" sung by Emmy Lutz. I wish I had a way of posting the video because she did an amazing job.

I recently heard Dave's newest single why visiting Phil at Kamp. Needless to say Dave did it again! Another amazing song. Enjoy the video!

Happy Birthday, Jonny!

Today is my sweet husband's birthday! What a wonderful day! 24 years ago today he was born. His parents actually thought he was going to be a girl (back before technology could detect a fetus' gender). So they had planned to name him Karen. Hillarious, I know. Thus he was nameless for a few days while his parents tried to decide what to name him. I think Jonathan was an excellent choice and I'm sure glad he wasn't a girl. ;)

We were planning on going to Dave and JoJo's lake property up north but the weather has been anything but fitting for such an activity. :( This makes me sad because I know how much Jonny LOVES going to the lake and wakeboarding/skiing. They actually shut down the lake to everyone because the water is so high, so it must be pretty bad. However, he is doing another activity he loves (no not hanging out with me...) Hanging with his older brother Isaac playing disc golf.

Tonight we are having all the family and my parents over for dinner. We are going to grill. YUM! Shout out to Uncle Tommy and Aunt Lisa for our awesome grill! We use it all the time! (It's a great excuse for me to catch a break from cooking and have Jonny make dinner!) :)

Happy Birthday JONNY!!!

*~*GASP~*~ OPIE'S!!!

So here's the deal. My Great grandfather started a dairy hauling business back in the early 19somethings. Long story short, my Uncle now owns the company and has turned it into a very successful family business. They don't haul dairy as much anymore due to new laws regarding the regulation and processing of dairy-so they haul things like corn syrup and other liquids, all over the country. Which leads me to Opie's truck sitings. It's quite an exciting thing. You see you could see them anywhere...and all the sudden...*~*~ GASP~*~*~THERE'S AN OPIE'S TRUCK!!!! I typically get in trouble for getting so excited and scaring the bajeezies out of Jonny, but its totally worth it. I've honked at the trucks, rolled down the window and literally hung out the window waving like a crazy person...there's no telling what I'll do when I spot one of these SUPER shiny beauts but one thing is for sure...it's fun. My sister's brother in law (yea you do that math) :) see's them often in Dallas with the company he works for and sent us some pics! Now I can look at them whenever I want. :)
