Happy Birthday to Me!

Another year older...honestly, where does the time go? I've had a wonderful day! It seems like alot has happened in the past week that I wanted to blog about, but now I can't remember anything. We spent the morning at church, afternoon at my parents with all my siblings, and this evening at Lisa & Butch's. My brother, Ben, was home for the weekend and I actually had a chance to visit with him. I got to meet his girlfriend...well actually fiancee now, he proposed last night. She seems really nice. We took pictures today of all 5 of us kids with Mom and David...the first pictures since their wedding in 98'. It was definitely time for an update. My fantastic husband got me a new digital camera for my birthday so maybe now I can get some pictures. I love to take pictures but haven't had a decent camera til' now.

On the subject of my husband...not to be too mushy, but he is absolutely amazing! I realize that everyone obviously thinks that the person they are married to is amazing, or they probably wouldn't have married them. But Trenton is honestly one in a million. Everyday he continues to amaze me and make me love him even more. He has been working is @$$ off at work with long hours, weekends, and a never ending to do list, but still he finds a way to spend time with me and let me know that I am an important part of his life. He makes me feel loved, appreciated, and like he couldn't possibly love anyone else more than he does me. I cannot wait to start our family together and grow old together. I do hope he knows how grateful I am that God brought him into my life and let us find our way to each other!

Anyway...enough mushy stuff! I'm headed to Jeff City for a 3 day training, then off to Maryville for my Master's graduation on Thursday. Then Trenton and I are going to take a few days in Maryville to visit old friends and go to the Omaha Zoo.

that's all for now...

I'll give it a try...

So, I've recently become addicted to reading everyone's blogs. I love reading what everyone has been up to, especially when I don't see everyone as much in the summer. With that and a discussion about blogging with Amee, I decided that I would give it a shot. I don't really have anything exciting to blog about...we don't have any kids, our jobs keep us pretty busy (except while on summer break for me!), and in general, we're actually kinda boring folks! But, nevertheless, I'm usually not at a loss for words, so maybe this will be fun!
