My Husband Rocks!

If you are just tuning in, today is My Husband Rocks Friday. This is the place where I get to brag to the world...or whoever is reading this awesome my husband is. While I'm sure there are many other women who would say that her husband is the greatest, I would have to argue, that my husband is the greatest of all the great husbands in the entire world, (I sure hope he is reading this ;o> *wink*). He is so thoughtful, and caring. Wednesday was the kids first day back to school, and he went into work late so he could be there for their first day back. That might not mean a whole lot to you, but to me, and I'm sure to our children, it meant alot to have their dad to see them off for their first day of school. Well, I guess that's my post for today. To all those dad's....and Husbands that rock.....Hoorah!!!!

Back to School!

Alyssa's first day of Kindergarten...
1st grade...
2nd grade!

It seems like only yesterday Tre' was starting pre-school.
Then, Kindergarten graduation....

1st grade
Now he is beginning the 5th grade, middle school! My how time flies. I'm afraid I'm going to wake up in the morning, and he'll be starting his freshman year of college. Before I had children, I can remember people with kids saying how time flies after having kids, but I never understood until I had them myself. I love my kids and thank God for blessing me with 2 healthy children. I never want to take them for granite. Children are truly a blessing from the Lord!

My Husband Rocks!

Yay, it's Friday, and we know what that means, it time for another installment of My Husband Rocks! He's a kid at heart. He loves to have fun. If our life was a reality show, people would so make fun of us. We have to be one of the kookiest families around. LOL! It's not uncommon for one of us at any time to break out in a random dance, and song. Sometimes Bryan will even bust a move right in the middle of Wally World. I absolutely love to hear him laugh. He has one of those contagious laughs. You may have no clue as to what he is laughing about but when you hear it you have to join in. He's hillarious! And that's another great reason why I love him so much, and why I think my husband rocks!!

It's About Time!!!

I finally have found one meal that I can fix that my whole family can agree on. It's so simple. Chicken Salad. I make it from scratch, including boiling my own chicken. No can stuff. Although, you can use the chunk chicken to save time. Anyways, it was like music to my ears hearing both kids complementing the same meal. Usually, I can please one, but not the other. My recipe varies everytime I fix chicken salad, usually because I forget to add something, but here is the basic recipe. Everything I just add to taste.

Boiled chicken
celery (chopped)
red grapes (cut in half)
crushed pecans
Light Mayo
Light Miracle whip
squirt of lemon
salt and pepper

I just throw everything together, and mix equal parts mayo and miracle whip. If you don't like one or the other just omit the one you don't like. You can serve with crackers on wheat bread or an all time favorite is on crossiants. =o) Enjoy!!

My Husband Rocks!!

My Husband Rocks!!!!! My hubby of 12 wonderful years rocks because he is an awesome dad, companion, provider, and he is the Spiritual head of our home. He always puts our needs/wants before his. Bryan is a great provider for his family, and even at one time worked 2 jobs so I could stay home with our children. He's a great listener, he's artistic, compassionate, wise, loving, funny, godly, and a great singer. He is our worship leader at church, and I count it an honor and priviledge to play the piano beside him. I think we have the greatest love story ever! I had a crush on him ever since I can remember. He's 4 years older than me, and I can remember being 4 yrs old and turning around in the pew at church and trying to blow a bubble to impress him...LOL! In JR high I would always write "I ♥ Bryan" on my notes to my friends, knowing he prolly didn't even remember me as his family had left our church and my step-dad was in the army so we moved around quite a bit. To make a long story shorter, we eventually ended up back in the same church, I was 15 and he was 19, and 31/2 years later we were married, and have lived happily ever after....=o) We've had our ups and downs, but more ups than downs. When you make the Lord the center of your life, marriage, family, every thing just falls into place. I love my family and I thank God for it!!

I was in the bathroom yesterday, when a fly was buzzing around bugging me, no pun intended, so I grabbed this can of Freeze It hairspray and shot the little sucker and instantly he fell to the ground. So, it truly lives up to its name, Freeze It. I guess you could call this a multi-tasker, you can use it for hairspray, and bugspray, only not the kind you apply to your skin...that could get pretty sticky. ;o)


In less than an hour, I'll officially be 31. To tell you the truth, I never thought I'd live to see the day that I'd be in my 30's. I guess when I was younger I just couldn't fathom "30". It seems much older when you are a child. Let me be the first to say that I don't feel 31. Sometimes my knees try to tell me otherwise, but I really don't listen. ;o) I still feel like I'm about 17. I also thought for sure we would have seen the second coming of our Lord by now. But I'm pretty sure that's closer as well. I would like to express my gratitude, and my love for my friends and family. I love them all! I have a host of wonderful people in my life, and if I began to start naming them I'd forget someone...not because of old age, just because I'm human*wink*.....So if you are reading this, you know who you are! So before I get all sappy and my eyes get blurry from tears, I'll just sign off. Thank You for all of the birthday wishes!! I love you all.....really, I mean it.
