Friday after school I had an eye dr. appointment. After that we met my parents and brother and future sister-in-law for dinner and then went back to our house to watch the NCAA basketball games.
Sat. morning we met the in-laws for breakfast and then headed up the mountain for our nephews 3rd birthday party. Eli had a John Deere themed party and he was just the cutest thing.
Our niece Lanie.

We received a wedding invitation from one of his college fraternity brothers that is getting married in May. The invitation was addressed to my husband only. (okay not sure but I think that I live there too). It gets worse. The inside envelope says "Mr. Hubs and Guest". Yes, you read that correctly. Now given the fact that we have not really kept in touch with this guy and have never met the girl since they didn't met until we had graduated from college. And I am sure that she did the invitations and wouldn't know us from Joseph and Mary. But still, this guy was at our wedding 3 years ago and I even knew him before I met my husband. Plus his fiance has the same name as me. Now I am big on etiquette and this has just gotten under my skin. I guess that I am just going to have to get over it though.
If you are wondering we are planning on attending the wedding. It is being held in the town that Hubs is from so we will be visiting his parents for the weekend. Also it will be a great chance to see some of our college friends that we haven't seen in a while. Hubs did make me feel better when he said that we would address the gift to "Mr. Friend and Guest".

1- I praise God for blessing me with an amazing family. My parents have been married for 35 years. They still love each other as much today and they did then. I have a brother that is one of my best friends. I praise God for keeping our family so close. We all live within 20 minutes of each other and get together at least once a week.
2- I praise God for the wonderful man that He has given me. Hubs and I have been married for 3 years and each day my love and admiration grows tenfold for him.
3- I praise God for a wonderful job that I love coming to. I cannot imagine doing anything other than teaching.
4- I praise God for the trials that He has laid in my path. As much as I long for a child I know that this is my journey. And that one day it will make me a better parent and has already made me a better person.
5- I praise God for wonderful friends. I can honestly say that I have the best friends in the world. They are amazing women that have made me better just by knowing them.
6- I praise God for all His financial blessings. I feel so blessed to be this young and have all that we do.
7- I praise God for my church family. I praise God for allowing us to grow in His love. Hubs and I have both grown in our faith so much recently and I pray that we continue to grow each day.

This weekend was wonderful. Hub's best friend came and stayed with us. We met him for dinner Friday night and had a great time. Saturday I went shopping with my mom (I will post about my great finds later) and then we grilled out steaks that night. We also watched Surprise Weddings on the WE channel; which could possibly be the worst show ever created. Sunday morning we went to Sunday school and church (we had the best worship service ever. I cried the entire time). Then we ate lunch with my parents and brother and future sister-in-law. After that we worked on rehearsal invitations and then watched Role Models (which is a pretty funny movie. The language was pretty bad but if you can look past that then it was funny).
Please pray for my brother. He has had a horrible ear ache this past week and finally went to Urgent Care yesterday and they told him that he had ruptured his ear drum. His ear has been bleeding and the pain has really been bothering him.

Kohls is one of my favorite stores. They always have great sales and since I have a credit card from there (the only credit card that I have) they are send me scratch off coupons with the chance to get an extra 15, 20, or 30% off all items.
This dress is adorable for Spring and is only 29.99.
I am in love with this shirt. 27.99
Brown woven belt- $15.40.
Love the colors in this bracelet for only $8.40.
Another great place that I have recently found is Forever 21.
This sleeveless satin top is only $7.50. With black dress Capri's and some hot black heels this would be perfect for a night out. And the best thing is that it comes in 4 colors.
I love this top. And you can't beat a price tag of $12.50.
This bag has such a great message. $1.50. Yes, that is one dollar and 50 cents.
I wear a lot of skirts in the spring and summer and the colors in this one are great. $22.50
I plan on doing another Dress for Less post in the near future. So be sure to check back in.

Below are my results:
Your personality type:
Quiet, kind and conscientious. Can be depended on to follow through. Usually puts the needs of others above their own needs. Stable and practical, they value security and traditions. Well-developed sense of space and function. Rich inner world of observations about people. Extremely perceptive of other's feelings. Interested in serving others.
Careers that could fit you include:

Quiet... never been a word to describe me, but the rest of the stuff is pretty accurate. I do value security and traditions and love to observe others. I am a teacher so I guess that could fall into my careers that fit me.
Try it out and see how accurate your results are.

My best friend right now.
- I just added a new list to my sidebar. It is a rundown of the weight that I have lost. I am glad that I put it on there because it made me happy to see how much total weight I have lost. It was also a great motivator since I didn't do well with eating last week. So, in honor of that I am thankful for the weight that I have lost so far.
- Lazy weekends. Which is what Hubs and I have coming up. A rarity in our lives. We are always so busy and with softball season here it seems like we never get to see each other during the week. That's why I am so happy that we don't have anything planned this weekend.
What are you thankful for this week?
