Marriage and such and so on.

Do you take her??? And do you take him??? Oh of course!! What a simple answer to a simple question...Or is it? I think people seldom realize how complicated such question can be.

For those have you that have been married for any length of time, I think we kinda giggle at the simplicity of the occasion of a wedding. Of course we do.....Of course we take them for better or worse...there could never be anything better in the whole wide world than the person standing in front of me. What a simple, silly question....

AND THEN, reality sets in... A few years and some kids later, an then people think, AHHHH what have I done!! This is no longer fun for me! Reality has set in!

Well....Here's a reality check. Marriage as wonderful and blissful and romantic as it seems, is WORK....You must WORK to make it fabulous. It is not a romance novel... I know, I know, this may come as shock to most, but if you want it, you WORK for it. And hard work, is worth it...It CAN be the most rewarding, romantic, wonderful thing you will EVER do in your life..

So all I can say is, don't sweat the small things. You will fight, argue, disagree, despise, BUT you will also LOVE, KISS, HUG, LAUGH, and SMILE. And that, to me, is the best part. If you ask me, "what do you guys fight about???" I will say "hmmm, not really sure"... BUT if you ask me "What is your favorite thing about being married?" I will say...........

"I come home to my best friend everyday...I know no matter what I say or what I do, he loves and forgives me".. I will say "I have the most wonderful person watching over my home".....I will say "No matter what happens, I trust him not only with my life, but with our child's"...

So I ask you, how many people can you say that about? How many people would you trust with everything you have???

I just felt I needed to share how much marriage means to me. To me, it is the most important..

So, just a an FYI here are few rules that Jeff and I share to make our marriage as strong as it can be.

1. NEVER leave the house when angry...(you may however go to another room)
2. The "D" word has NEVER been used in our home. No matter how angry we get.
3. I don't care how ticked we are at another, I ALWAYS say "I love you"
4. We always try to remember, there is no right or wrong, there's is just different. Just because your opinion is different than mine, does not mean it's wrong.

Ok, sorry about gettin on my soapbox...Just thought I needed to share what has made us successful for the last 10 years.

Love to you all!

Date Night

Lst night was date night for us. We had a great time. I took half a day off and Jeff got home early. We sat around and chatting a bit, then we went to dinner.

We tried a new restaurant on the square in Bentonville called Table Mesa. IT WAS FABULOUS!!! The service was excellent and the food.........YUM-O! The prices were very reasonable as well.

We started off with an appetizer - Fire Bread. SOOOO good. I could have just had that and been quite satisfied. Then the entrees - I had the veggie tacos and Jeff had the fish tacos. Once again, FABULOUS! So needless to say, we have a new favorite place.

We ran some errands then headed to the Aloft. Stayed there for just a short while then headed home. We had such a great time laughing and talking the whole way home. We were rockin out to "Shook me all Night" or whatever that song is called. Jeff was on air keyboard and I had the air guitar. We are such dorks.

The night ended with a fire on the back porch and some relaxing music. It was wonderful. Oh, but wait, I can't forget the 11pm run to Taco Bell. It was pretty random. Jeff just kinda shot up and was like "put your slippers on, we're going to taco bell" Um, ok. How can one argue with that?

Well, I'm off to pick up the kiddo and meet a friend for lunch. Happy Saturday everyone!

Take One..........Not so good...............

Take Two......................Better.............................

Ahh!! Why am I still sick?? I have had a wicked sinus/head cold cruddy mess for the last week. I have done nothing but, sneeze, cough, and have snot pouring out of my face and now, to top it off, I have two absolutely fabulous cold sores. I think I'll name them Nick and Nancy.

I have totally grossed out everyone I work with. My poor pod neighbor....I feel so bad. I am bathing in GermX but she is still repulsed. She was literally wiping down HER side of the wall with Clorox wipes. Um, I can't even see her side of the wall. I know she thinks I belong in a bubble. She will spend a solid half hour disinfecting her pod once I leave it. Of course, she is a bit of a germaphobe. (LOL, you know I love ya)

Ok, so really, if I still sound like an eighty year old pack 'a day smoker tomorrow, I will go to the doctor. I despise the doctor. I think it's a complete waste of time and money. I just need the drugs. I don't need to go in, wait for an hour, see a guy who really has no clue who I am give me a quick once over and tell me that I have a cold and a cough. Duh. That's why I'm here.

Anyway, they NyQuil is kickin in and I am about to pass out.

I got a new camera so I'll be sure to start posting some pics!
