one of the best days

Thursday, February 4, 2010

is my husband's birthday. that was the day that the good Lord put my best friend on this planet. it's almost more important that MY birthday :) I seriously found the perfect person for me when we started dating seven years ago. shortly after we got married, we were sitting on the couch watching TV together and we were holding hands (yes, that was back when we held hands for no reason and it was even inconvenient to do so) and i felt his fingers twitching on the backs of my hands. i asked him what he was doing and he reluctantly told me that he was typing out the words from the show we were watching. you may think that's a crazy OCD habit, but the funny thing is that I've been doing that very same thing since i was a freshman in high school and took a typing class. i mean, how weird is it that two people meet, get married, and then realize that they have the same really weird habit?! it obviously means that we were meant to be :) obviously. or that we didn't spend NEARLY enough time together before our "i do's".

my life has been so much better because of you, joshy. i love you with all of my heart and your birthday is one of my all-time favorite days.


a few laughs

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

we've been having some fun lately. here are a few pictures that make me laugh:

ella's robe was a birthday present from aunt tricia and piper. you can say that it's a hit over here around bathtime! just look at that smile. ahhh, baby love.

after josh and ella left one morning i was getting ready for work and saw a flash above my head in the closet. there have been bat problems in my neighbors townhouse, so i freaked a little in my head. then i realized what it was.....

we are also putting our house on the market this month. so we've been doing some minor repairs to get things ready. here is daddy and his little helper

and last, i came downstairs one day to find that ella had done a little remodeling in her doll house...

My family cracks me up. It may be a dull life to some, but I wouldn't trade it for the world!
