F-R-E-E that spell free

credit report dot com ba-by!

I love this commercial! It cracks me up every time I see it and we will walk around the house singing this song. I love how once they buy the car they are cruising in thier used sub compact playing thier instruments. You gotta watch till the very end though! I just LOVE the look on his face when he is done singing and he does his little head bob thing. Gets me every time! Enjoy, but be careful, you may find yourself humming this catchy little tune. Don't say I didn't warn you! :0)

Supah Dupah....

Quick post. I have been wanting to post here since I returned from Tennessee, but I have not had the time. So in an effort to not be a blog slacker, I am posting a quickie.

Tennessee = Fun

Old friends, new friends, creative inspiration. It doesn't get any better!

Yesterday- Happy Earth Day!! Go green. My daughter reminded me that by recycling one product will offset 3 hours of television. I know that she is "globally" conscious, but I personally I think she may have been campaigning for more T.V.!

My little darlings were promoted to 6th degree green belts in Tae Kwon Do this evening. They both recieved an EXCELLENT during their testing. To give you some perspective on how much this means, only 5 out of roughly 45 students recieved this honor! This means that they did an outstanding job! WOW! We were excited for them, but more importantly, they were proud of themselves!

I am feverishly working on finishing up my projects from the Scrap Etc. event so that I can move on to some other things.

I have to make a costume for our docent trip to Sutter's Fort by next Tuesday. I have volunteered to take the photos of all of the kids, prepare the class board (which is HUGE) that will be on display that day at the fort. I also have to get a costume together for myself because I am in charge of a station that day! Oh yes! I will be making corn husk dolls with all of the kids. Totally crafty and right up my alley!

I am in the process of solidifying our summer activities and childcare. Summer will include Algebra Academy, Sports Camp, YMCA, camping at Patrick's Point, 2 birthday parties and 9 days in Kauii! Lots of great stuff going on, but lots of planning and prep for me! Whew, cleansing breath!!!!!!!

So that is it in a nut shell. I am grateful for my time away and am grateful to be home. Here is a photo of the reunion! Awwwwwwwww!

Yes, my vacation is almost here and I am almost ready! I am excited to go to Tennessee and see my friend and what her life there is all about. I am excited to go to the scrapping event in Nashville. I am excited to have 1 week that I don't have my regular "responsibilities"! I am also nervous! Nervous to leave my family for the length of time. I know that both they and I will be okay. It's just that I have never been away from any of them for that length of time! I love my home and the comfort that it brings me, so even though I am looking forward to my trip, it's hard to leave.
Well I need to be off to continue to prepare things for my trip and my family while I am away. I will leave you with this.......

I thee wed

Today is my 13th wedding anniversary! Yay us. We reminisced about the last 13 years together this morning starting from the beginning of our marriage. That was funny! We have changed so much in so many ways since the beginning. I suppose that the trick is that we have done it together. On my home page the word of the day was "coalesce". What a perfect word for such a wonderful day. Here is it's definition:

coalesce • \koh-uh-LESS\ • verb1 : to grow together 2 a : to unite into a whole : fuse*b : to unite for a common end : join forces 3 : to arise from the combination of distinct elements

I was filled today with such a sense of gratefulness for everything in my life. I told my mom that I really feel like I have everything I ever hoped for. No, we do not live in a castle by any stretch of the imagination, but our home is filled with love. We don't have the fanciest cars or lots of excess cash in our bank account, but we do have what I concider the most important things in life. We have eachother, we have our children, we have our faith in God. All of the other worldly things are just icing on the cake. Don't get me wrong though, I do love my "icing" to be sure!

I am grateful that I chose him and he chose me. I am glad that we decided to "join forces towards a common end". It makes me happy that we have "grown together and have become united as a whole". I wouldn't change a thing.

If you know us (and if you are reading this you probably do) you know where we have come from. You know the path that we have taken and know that because of our lives we really shouldn't be where we are today. Thank God, literally, that HE has blessed us and our marriage. So today we celebrate our marriage, our progress, the fact that we have beat the odds. What a wonderful journey it has been. I am blessed.
