My Family

Fourteen years ago at around this time of year I was busy trying to find a someone. Getting the guts up to ask a curly brunette out on a date was an incredibly tough thing. What made it hard was after you said no. Yup turn downed. I went along with your excuse and gave you the benefit of a doubt. So I fought back the first rejection to once again ask you out again. Only to be rejected again. By this time I became more frustrated then totally and ultimately rejected. Although it was far worse the second time. Luckily for me I had a recent self realization to enable a baseball mentality to dating. Before I even asked you to go out on a date I started the “three strikes your out” program. I would give girls three chances before they were knocked off my list. You were on strike two. So there we were, two strikes and we still had to see each other every day at the same dealership that we worked at together. So not long after the second strike I caught you walking up to the front office and caught you and asked again. Sure everyone by now is thinking oh just give the guy a mercy date. But what did you say – NO! I instantly reacted and told you you just got your third strike. After your confusing look I explained my Three Strike Your Out Program, and you then quickly said “Well Maybe.” Maybe go out with me after three strikes? So I told you that I would give you 2 3/4 strikes and we planned a date on another day then the one I just asked.
You were confused as to why I kept asking, thinking I wasn’t interested in the cute country farm girl. So the date was to a collage theater play where we went to and we both realized there that it was love on Third Strike. Later learning from you that you knew that night that you felt the same as I did that night. All to only see us engaged three months later and married in August of that year. Fast forward over 14 years, you are still the one I would ask out again and again. After all the things we have been through both rough and fun, we still snuggle up at night. Even if we are fighting off 5 kids. ;)

Prior to that first date together I had hoped to find you for a thousand years. So as we continue to grow and evolve together, just like our first date, where we know we will be together for a thousand years more.
I Love You more then that first day!

“A Thousand Years”

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall?
But watching you stand alone,
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow.One step closer[Chorus:]
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

My family moments I want to rememer athriftymom.comLife is full of moments, some good and some bad…. but these are the moments I want to remember with my family.

Someone had a late nap and is a perky little spring flower at midnight….. Snuggled up singing to Mama. Daddy clipped that massive flower in her hair to keep her hair out of her eyes. It’s huge… But its pretty cute. Just so you know she is not always this happy, but we still think she is adorable even when she is being a “Miss Crabby Pants”.

What moments do you want to remember today?

Quick glance at our week… just a reminder that I am REALLY am a real person behind this blog. Even if some days I feel like a machine finding and cranking out these deals for you all lol.Butterball Booty babyI was busy doing laundry with a cranky baby, when my 7 year old came in to take her. Later I walked into the other room to find this little “butterball booty baby” all snuggled up asleep on her big sister. I love moments like this. honor rollMy sixth grader made the honor roll, this is a pretty big deal since he has developmental delays and has to work really hard in school.  So proud of this little guy!

camera broken

My 4 year old was sitting on my lap as I was blogging, he was “helping me” when he accidentally dropped my Nikon camera and shattered the lens, and broke it clean off. I almost cried, good news is the camera is ok, just have to buy a new “not so cheap” lens.  I kept telling myself… it is just a thing it cam be replaced….. so I would not freak out lol.
