Happy 30th Prince Charming

Well, it happened. After much planning and anticipation on my part, I, along with the help of A -LOT of family and friends, pulled off the ultimate surprise for Prince Charming. The night was great. My pince was truly surprised. He walked into Mr. T and Ray Ray's expecting dinner and instead, got 30 of his closest friends and family all there to celebrate with him! 30 isn't easy, you have your mind set on things like what kind of house you'll own when your 30, or what job you will have, or even what kind of car you will be driving. Then BAM!!! it's here, and while the job is great, the house is great, the cars... well, they run, it still isn't what you thought it would be. But when you are standing in a room looking at all these people - friends from work, friends from college, family, friends from church - how can you not realize that on that day even though you're 30 - you're exactly where you never dreamed you could be - surrounded by love and friendship. My prince realized how blessed he is and even though we aren't "rich" by the world's standards, WE ARE RICH - and yes, I am talking about blessings! Happy 30th prince charming - Here's to the next 30 - may they be even more blessed! I love you!

My First Blog

Well, I have entered the world of blogging. Some say it is therapeutic, putting your thoughts on paper. We'll see. There are other things that are therapeutic to me like the feel of my daughter's skin against mine, or the smell of her hair when I am rocking her to sleep, the rhythmic sound of my husband's breathing has he sleeps next to me, or the random sentence prayers I lift up to God throughout the day. Saturday mornings are therapeutic, we get up, my husband makes coffee, we open all the blinds and let the sun light our living room. I make pancakes, and we usually watch playhouse disney... it doesn't get any better than that! My daughter, we'll call her Cinderlla, is two, and never ceases to amaze me. She tells you what her favorite cartoons are, her favorite foods, her favorite books - hey maybe she should be the blogger - she even tells which direction she wants you to drive in. It is nothing less than pure joy to just have the day with her.
