Has it already been one year????

This picture was taken SIX years ago. This actually is the first picture that Jacob and I EVER took together! Pretty crazy!!! We have come along way from this!!!
Last year on March 29th- A beautiful Sunday afternoon, my homecoming date, best friend, boyfriend and love of my life asked me to marry him!!!!!! That day changed my life forever!!!! I never knew how happy that curly headed kid would make me. I remember this day like it was yesterday!!!

He asked.....
I said YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That was a full year ago!! I can't believe it! Time has flown by-we have overcame so many things, we have grown, we have learned, we have laughed and we have loved.

Since our engagement- we of course got married :) we bought a house, we bought a dog, we went on a cruise, we have eaten a few burnt dinners, a few super dinners, had a few house parties, had my family over ALOT, we've done alot!

I can not express how truly blessed I am by Jacob. He has just become this wonderful, amazing and supportive husband. He is always striving to learn new things, he prays for us constantly, he leads our home with me by his SIDE, he loves my family which is so important to me, and he loves me!! Jacob is incredible and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us!

Thanks for agreeing to stand by side forever babe! You make me so happy!!! I love you more than you know and your my best friend!! Thanks for the past six years of memories...and all ones to come!

Something is missing...literally

So Jacob and I are in the process of planting a garden...
Nothing perfect, very simple-just a garden. My main focus of our garden was tomatoes. Jake and I love tomatoes! We make (and by we, I mean "I") this fabulous tomato mozzarella dish, etc. We love them!

Anyways- we get all geared up to plant a garden- tomatoes, bell peppers, okra, green chile, etc.... Jacob built a fence so our WONDERFUL dog (maybe a hint of sarcasm) wouldn't eat our garden---See pics below

So he builds this great fence, for our great little garden, and then................it SNOWED!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah snow! YUCK! So then we talked to the lady at Lowes, turns out you are not supposed to even think about planting a garden until like the second weekend in April...who knew!

Ok- so we understand now. However we've already bought seeds (which are fine) but we also bought a BIG tomato plant and small jalapeno plant. Now I grew very accustomed to these two plants- I watered them daily, took them outside while it was sunny and brought them in the house every night! I was so proud of my growing plants!

Well something happened. Today I put my two little plants outside for some sunshine while I was at work. When I got home I went to bring them in and notice my lovely little tomato plant was MISSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes missing! Now I tried to think where a tomato plant could disappear to. The wind didn't blow it over- there was no soil, no plant, and no pot ANYWHERE in the back yard (we checked) Luke didn't eat it because once again... no soil, no plant and no pot (plus we had it sitting up realllllllly high..almost to high for me so he couldn't get to it) I just can't imagine where it is. I guess it blew away or something but I really find it hard to believe because of it's size (and the small plant is still there.) Jacob found it preposterous that somebody would come into our backyard and only take a tomato plant...although I have not completely ruled that out. It was groomed very nicely if I may say so myself :)

But anyways I guess we will just wait till the second weekend of April and buy a new stinkin tomato plant. Bummer.

I guess if you see it please bring it back... haha!

  • Jacob is still working in Panhadle, I miss him!
  • Luke weighs over 30 lbs- he is WILD
  • I mopped yesterday and now I have tiny muddy puppy prints all over the kitchen
  • I have baby fever...Jacob totally does not...hmmm what to do :)
  • This is what I am looking at right now... HA!
  • I am not so sure that my sweet little Lukester is normal??? Does anyone else have a dog who sleeps on a pillow????? I love him though!
  • And last but not least. I told you I had nothing to blog about. So there is a list of random facts! Have a great Monday! Hope you all have a wonderful spring break!

What is a Mom?

What is a Mom? I myself am not a mom...not yet. But I have a mom, and she's a wonderful mom. I know I have written about her before, but the past few days she has just been an ever present symbol of support, friendship and unconditional love.
I started my long-term subbing job at Sleepy Hollow Elementary. I have a WONDERFUL 2nd grade class. They are a very smart and a very fun group of kids. With taking on something new comes a lot of new emotions, my mom has been my biggest fan!! This week in my class we are celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday. I have been looking for an opportunity for my mom to come read to my class. She wanted to see my sweet kiddos and they were super excited to have a "visitor" in the classroom. It was such a joy to see my mom in my classroom today. She was there just to support me and be apart of something that I am passionate about. She doesn't have to know the kid's names or what their behaviors are--she just wants to come be apart of it because I am apart of it.
Also-to top this off. Last night I came home with an awful move-me-to-tears migraine headache. My wonderful husband was at school and could not be of any assistance to me and so my mom drove all the way over to my house with a bowl of tortilla soup, some water still tea and my Mollee girl (who she was babysitting) just to make feel better! It worked!! :) She fixed me right up! ANNNNNNDDDDD if that wasn't enough...I locked my keys in my car today. Jacob is working out of town and so once again mom to the rescue...
Thanks mom...for ALL you do. You are such a strong person in my life. I can't wait to be a mom of my own and pass on the great things that you have taught me. But in the mean time I just want to sit back and enjoy the special relationship I have with both you and with dad. Growing up I never knew we would be so close. But you guys INSPIRE me, ENCOURAGE me, LOVE me, and you don't know how much that means to both Jacob and myself.
We both love you guys sooo very much!!!! Thanks again-
