We met at a bar-No! It was a restaurant!

This is mine and Jason's argument over where we met! Today at Show Us Your Life at Kelly's Korner is how did you meet your spouse day.Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner We met at Razoo's Cajun Restaurant-I was eating dinner in the restaurant with friends, and he was hanging at the bar with his friends! Long story short, I smoked way back then (I know so gross!) I kept going up to the bar area to have a cigarette, and I noticed him-I mean Hey-he is hot!

Ok, so I noticed that our waitress was hanging out over there alot, so I asked her the story on "the one on the left". The one on the right was her boyfriend, the middle one, a friend, and the one on the left was the friend's roomate. They all worked together. I told her he was very good looking. She ran off to immediately tell him! "Oh brother I thought-this can't turn out good" I had previously sworn off men-they seemed to all stink to me at this point in my life!

She comes back, and tells me that he wants to meet me, and will I please come ever there. After about 15 minutes of "No way!" I finally went over there on my way out. He seemed very nice, and asked me why I was leaving so early on a Friday night-I informed him that hairdressers have to work really early on Saturdays! He decided he might need a haircut that next day...Ha!

Well, we ended up dating for about 3 weeks, then he made me mad, and I didn't speak to him for a few months. Although, everywhere I went I would see him. I do mean everywhere! 4 months later, I saw him again (big surprise) and decided to be nice. He called me later that night, we talked for hours! And we have been together ever since! We were married 2 years later, and I will have to post pics later, cause I am tired!

PS We will be celebrating 8 years of marriage this year!

Raised To Walk!

Last year, Dalton accepted Christ as his savior, and reconfirmed it several times throughout the year. We had decided at that point that we would not push baptism on him and that we would wait for him to bring it up. Well, once he did, he was on fire and super ready!

So this Sunday was the day for monthly baptisms at our church, so we talked and talked to him, and then a guy from our church talked to him, and then we talked and talked to him somemore. And he was definitely ready!

Our executive pastor and good friend Ben baptized him. I was really emotional ofcourse. I ended up crying all day yesterday at any and everything on TV or in print, it didn't matter. We are definitely proud parents that Dalton is maturing in everyway possible, and that this decision was made totally by him.

Enjoy the pics of our special day!

Tile Coasters

Today at Kelly's Korner is Teacher Gifts
Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner, so here is mine:

My new favorite gift to make is tile coasters! It is really so simple too. Here is what you will need:
*Ceramic tiles I use the 3x3 or 4x4 inch ones from Home Depot. You can use any type of tile, my favorite is the rough and tumbled look verses the shiny smooth ones.
*Stamp of your choice
*Stamping Ink
*Felt sticky dots-I found the best price at Hobby Lobby in the framing department
*Clear Arcylic Spray Sealer

Clean off your tile really good with an all purpose cleaner, and let dry. Then take a stamp with ink, (STAZ ON works really well)and stamp the tile. Let this dry then seal it with a clear acrylic spray sealer. Put felt sticky dots on the back, and Voila! You are done! I usually wrap them in sets of 4 with pretty ribbon or tulle. You can also do the same thing, with a bigger tile, and give just one and a small easel.

I couldn't find a picture of mine, and my cameras are broke :( so I "borrowed" this picture from somebody else, but mine look just like this with different stamps. I did verses, plus fleur de lis, and you could also do initial letters.

Face Lift

Finally! I have wanted to get rid of the big ugly bushes in front of our house for over a year now. Jason finally caved (I mean agreed)! So, he starts yanking them out. He is so creative, he just wrapped a chain around the base of the bushes, hooked it up to his truck and VOILA! My hero! Our Easter pic above is the only one I could find that showed a before picture.

So with the help of some Home Depot gift cards! (YAY) We were able to make a whole new front of our house. I am so excited! Although, moving my rose bush meant that it had to be hacked to bits because it was growing out on one side and not the other due to the bushes behind it! Poor thing! But now, it can regrow big all around!

What do you think of our face lift?

Easter 2010

We had a very busy Easter weekend this year! Friday night we decorated cupcakes and sugar cookies with our friends The Cormacks. This actually turned out to be more fun for Audrey and I than for the kiddos I think! Saturday Dalton had baseball practice, then our friends little girl Aubrey turned 3, and they had a super cute spring themed party complete with an egg hunt!

After that, we went straight to our churches Kid Fest 2010 which included a helicopter egg drop! It was awesome! Over 3,0000 people showed up! God was totally in the details for that one! There were several bounce houses and other cool stuff like a big truck with Wii's inside and couches to sit on! It was really hard to get the boys out of there! We had several friends meet us there, and had a great time with them too!

Later that night, we dyed eggs. This year we tried the camo egg kit, which was really kind of neat-just a little more tedious than the box made it look! Ofcourse, Carson picked that one over the crazy faces one! Although he is the king of crazy faces around here! ha ha

On Sunday, we had an awesome sermon at church, my family came with us and then we had a sandwich lunch at our house. After that, we had an egg hunt for the 3 boys. They absolutely love hunting as many as they can-Dalton wanted us to keep hiding them over and over! I think he is really into the hunt!

Anyway, we all had a great time and were able to spend it with family which I think is extremely important. But, please remember what this past weekend was really about, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who endured a horrific death so that we may experience eternal life with our heavenly father! How awesome is that?

Let the decorating begin!
