Amazing fall weekend!!

I am so bad at opperating this picture thing hahhaa. I wanted the pics in a diff order but anyways here they are. We had a great weekend and even had Evan yesterday because of his fall break. Friday night Mom and Dad came down and went to dinner with Mike and I in Eville for my bday because I have to work thursday on my bday. We went to shop for a bit till Mike got off of work then met up at Texas Roadhouse. The food was yummy as always and we had an amazing time with my parents!! I felt like my parents actually enjoyed our company. I was so mad at my dad and Mike because they asked the waiter to do the birthday thing for me and I had to get up on a wooden saddle in the middle of the restaurant it was so embarassing!!!! My parents got me some great gifts but the fun we had was better than any gift.
Saturday I went to Jeffersonville for Evans band Regionals. They got gold and are going to Semi-State!!! GO OBR!!! So its off to Franklin next weekend. Mike actually gets to go this time which will be nice. We made dinner saturday night for when Mike got home from work and we had a great time with our little family. As much as I hate that the boys play their computer and video games just being in the same household is a good feeling. Sunday we hung out and went to John and Stephs for a bonfire and watched the colts game (what is up with them, they are stinkin it up right now). Yesterday we carved pumpkins had lunch and took Evan home. I had my first physical yesterday with Deaconess and just driving down the road to the hospital I was just all smiles, like ive said it is bittersweet because I love Bloomington but am ready to be home.
Mike and I got a big load of things from the Apt and will be getting the last of it in two weeks. Hope everyone had a great weekend, is enjoying this weather, and I hope everyone has a great week.

Fall Happenings

Mike and I finally had a date night the other night, it's been a while, he has been working so hard 6-7 days a week to pay for bills, house remodeling, among other things. He is the best and God has blessed me with such a wonderful man. We finally were able to see Fireproof and it was as good as everyone had talked about. Mike was ready to go to Barnes and Noble and get the love dare and another book one of his coworkers recommended. We were the only ones in the movie theater so we basically had a private viewing. I bawled my eyes out most the movie. I just kept looking at Mike and he would just smile. We really shared a wonderful moment and hope that we can open our hearts more to God.
We get Evan this whole weekend and for his fall break. I have so many things planned and will post pictures!! Tonight mom and dad are coming down for dinner and to just hang out because I am working next week for my birthday. Please pray that everything will go smoothly with Mike and my parents. The relationship is getting better but it is not even close to what I hope for, but God will provide I have faith in that.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoy the amazing weather. I love this time of year.

So many things on my mind...

I have not blogged for a while. I have so many things on my mind I don't even know where to start. My family and I have kind of hit a road block again. I just want it to all be ok. I know they say they care and worry about me but the crying every night from how I feel I am being treated with some people is just not healthy. I just pray in time that it will be ok and just know that I need to put this into Gods hands. I guess I just need to be thankful that I am blessed with a family that wants to be so involved in my life and life decisions.

I start at Deaconess Nov 17th and can't wait. It is so bittersweet. I want to start my new job but leaving my current one is harder on me than I thought it would be.

Jinxy is at the house in princeton now and it is amazing how much animals know their home, when we got close to Princeton she got all antsy and when we got inside she went to her favorite spot it was so cute.

We are getting ready to start well finish construction on the house. I love our little house and can't wait for it to be finished.

My friend Heather is starting to blog and I cant wait to start seeing all about her cute little family. Love ya girl!!

Many Happenings...

This weekend had alot of stuff going on. Friday I took a CPR class. Came home to Princeton and unloaded TONS of things. I mowed the lawn and Mike went to the woods to set up for hunting. I know some women complain about hunting but I love this season. He gets to go have fun and I have time to clean and scrapbook. Dont get me wrong I love our times together but alone time is nice also. I cleaned the rest of Friday night and organized. I might be crazy but I looooooooooove cleaning and organizing. Saturday we went to Jasper for Evan's band District. They got a gold rating wooohooo. GO OBR. So we will be going to regional in 2 weeks. Then sunday was evans bday so we did our celebration on saturday. We went to eat at garfields, went to grandma coralies, a trip to gamestop, and to chris and crystals house. We had a great time. Sunday I went to my moms to visit before work and my aunt called to give us some bad news. My grandpa was having emergency surgery and we ran over to Jasper. I had to call into work due to my grandpas surgery and to be with family. It ended up better than I thouht and grandpa's surgery went fine and he is recooperating well.
I love this time of year!!!! Although it has warmed up some those few days of true fall weather I was really excited!! The sounds, smells, sights are just amazing in fall. I hope we can get all of out money in order here soon and go get married in Gatlinburg!!!

Life is great!!!

So, I finally heard back from Deaconess. I got the job and will be working the ER there. More trauma here I come!!!! I loved working in Bloomington ED and love everyone there but my life is changing and Deaconess will be just a great learning experience and hopefully be my choice of work for many years. More stuff was moved to the house in Princeton, yes I know it is taking me forever!!! I just smile at all times at how my life is coming back together. Another weekend of family time and band, also Evan's birthday which should be a great time.
Mom and Dad and I went to Loren and Kari's tonight and my nephew Cooper is sooooo stinkin cute!! I seemed to have lost my camera but soon will have more pictures when I find my camera. I know I might be biased but he is just so handsome and so well natured. As all of you know, Cooper takes after Kari and not Loren. hahahaha.
Well I am heading off to bed, long day tomorrow. Have a great weekend everyone!

Fireproof your Marriage

So much to people's disbelief Mike and I have what I feel is an amazing relationship. We've been talking about finding a church when we get moved back to princeton. I have been reading about the movie and book, "Fireproof Your Marriage." As to anything that deals with God, some coworkers and friends just roll their eyes. My friend Renata (who is amazing) and I have been researching this book, blogs, and info. She and her husband have already seen this movie and Mike and I are going to soon.
I look forward to reading the book,seeing the movie, and doing the things Mike and I need to do to Fireproof our Marriage.

Now these three remain:
faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love
