Today I am thankful that a replacement for my steam mop is finally coming in the mail!!

I’m watching the last episode of Friends, which is always a winner.

I also finally got off of hold, which yielded the first sentence in this post. ¬†ūüôā

I’m feeling better today!

We’re getting our first Christmas tree this week!

I have been married for 366 days!  But my grandparents hit the 60 year mark today!!


One Year

One year ago today I married the love of my life. ¬†I’ve learned a lot this year about myself and about my husband, and although it hasn’t always been easy, I look forward to many many more years of marriage.



And now



Family Photos Are Here!

Our family photos are here! ¬†Liz did a great job, and I wanted to share a few with you… so here they are!

Family Photos

We are getting our family photos done today! ¬†I am so excited to have our photo shoot with Liz and to see how the pictures turn out (hopefully the weather will cooperate… right now it’s quite overcast). ¬†Hope that you are having a great day!


Today I was at work and was holding a sweet baby when one of my coworkers walked in–student nurse in tow. ¬†Usually I am very nice to nursing students and all about teaching… but this girl set me off. ¬†Probably because when she saw me holding this (sick) child, she said, “So you just get to hold babies all day?” ¬†I wanted to smack her. ¬†Hold babies all day? ¬†Sure. ¬†It’s not like I take care of sick, and dare I say, sometimes dying, babies day in and day out. ¬†But no, my job is the easiest thing in the world… just hold babies all day.

Psalm 130

Psalm 130

My Soul Waits for the Lord
A Song of Ascents.

1Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD!
2O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

3If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
4But with you there is forgiveness,
that you may be feared.

5I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
6my soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.

7O Israel, hope in the LORD!
For with the LORD there is steadfast love,
and with him is plentiful redemption.

8And he will redeem Israel
from all his iniquities.

Today I was ashamed of myself. ¬†I found that I was guilty of the very thing that drives me absolutely bonkers about some people that I work with. ¬†I thought of myself as “better” than someone else. ¬†I was a snob. ¬†I was a jerk. ¬†I didn’t even say anything… but sometimes it’s all about the attitude and the sin in the heart.

I am completely ashamed of myself.
