I love how you take twice as long as anyone to fix your sandwich. I love that you make me laugh harder than anyone can. I love that we take bike rides. I love the way your green eyes lock with mine. I love when we pray. I love that you like me reading aloud to you. I love how you like my silliness. I love that you value my friends. I love how you will chase me down even when it’s the last thing you feel like doing. I love when you tuck me in. I love laying in your arms. I love just knowing you’re there. I love the promises you’ve made that will never be broken. I love that you know I trust you. But most of all I just love you.
I’d like to formally announce to all of you that I am now officially in the “know” as far as Pirates of the Caribbean goes. So I’ve watched this trilogy of movies more times than I can count and have always loved them. However, the only problem here is a strange paradox–how one can love a movie and not follow it in the least. It’s true. If you were to ask me what these movies were about, I couldn’t tell you. Kevin is just baffled at how this is possible (not so much the “not understanding” part as the “not following and still loving” part.) Anyways, I just spent the last couple hours fully engaged in the second movie of the series and GRASPING every last aspect of it. Well done, I say.
yep, that’s right. My love makes me blush when he send me random IM messages from work. He’s the best!
I just remembered one of the funniest, most unbelievable stories ever…and I just can’t wait to tell it! So in between our wedding ceremony and the reception the entire bridal party went down to Lake Shore Park on the shores of Lake Erie to get our pictures taken. Steve Newton was sitting up in the pavilion with his daughter Kara while Beth, our flower girl, was in our photo shoot. Later on, he told me this true story. There was a young girl and her mom walking along the pavilion and they looked down to see us taking pictures. The little girl said, “There’s a wedding happening down there!” Then she went on to say, “LOOK, Mom! [pointing at me, the bride] There’s Angelina Joli!”
After the demands of my hundreds of fans (or a suggestion from one good friend…) I decided to upload the pictures of the photo arrangement I talked about yesterday. I hope you like them! (oh, and ps…the couch is from my grandma and is in great shape…it’s just not our favorite style. lol. So, eventually, we’d like to slip cover it!)
…and proud of it. :) Today was a “fun day for me. I had the usual morning then decided to whip up some brownies for the ice cream sundae party we’re having tonight with Kevin’s family. (It’s the big Canada-US “Freedom Festival” fireworks!) Then, since I had so many bananas starring me in the face just pleading to be made into something delicious, I decided to oblige. I used a recipe I had received as a wedding gift to make 2 yummy loaves of banana bread–one for tonight…one for later. ;-) mmm, mmm. As I was baking up a storm, I wished I could keep going. No, for real. I really wanted to bake more cookies and more breads, etc, etc. That got me thinking. I said to myself, “Self, it would be super cool if I started a baking business out of my home.” Considering I’m still unemployed, this sounded like a brilliant (not to mention deliciously enjoyable) idea. Who knows if it would actually be profitable, but I would probably get some friends out of it. (And don’t worry, I would try my best not to become like Monica in the Friends episode “The One with the Chocolates” where she secretly loves making chocolates only because it makes people like her.) lol.
It’s been another good 24 hours. First of all, we were able to pick up our car from the shop and were quite pleased to only have to pay $60. (Certainly zero dollars would have been ideal…but that’s ok.) Unfortunately we might need to invest in a new battery, but we’re both so thrilled to have our vehicle back. Last evening after Ben arrived, we had a delicious dinner of homemade pizza, breadsticks, and salad (thank you very much…) and then ventured out to the wonderful world of Meijer. Kevin and I picked up lots of needed groceries and the three of us found lots of snacks to keep our mouths occupied while watching the Tigers’ game.
welp, that pretty much sums up my morning. No, for real! We’re down to one egg and a cup of milk so that limited the breakfast options, so I made pancakes. This is one item of food that we will not be running out on any time in the near future. (So if you come visit us, I hope you like pancakes, cause that’s what you’re gonna get.)
