Bit the bullet...

I said I wasn't going to do it...but....
I'm on Facebook now.
Yes, I just signed up 10 minutes ago and sent out tons of friend request but 5 minutes later I only have 2 friends...
Maybe patience isn't my strong point....
So, look me up!!! Jennifer Wallace Causey
Can I put a link on my blog to facebook???

Random stuff...

* Anthony's birthday is tomorrow - he's going to be 12. He doesn't want to do the family party thing anymore - so this weekend he's going to have a few friends over for a sleepover and rent the Transformers movie that came out on DVD today. Pray for me with a house full of pre-teen boys...

* Allison joined the disc golf club and the archery club at school. I like golf so I get that...Archery? Really?? She thinks it will be cool to shoot a bows & arrows at stuff.

* Abby has her first field trip tomorrow to the Pumpkin Patch. That's all she's talked about for the last 2 weeks.

* The weather today is beautiful!! I love Fall :)

14 years ago....

14 years ago today, a new chapter in my life. I was so excited I was fixing to be some one's wife. The love of my life. The man that could take my breath away with those beautiful blue eyes and gorgeous smile....
It was going to be great! Being a wife. I could just imagine it. Having him gaze at me at the breakfast table telling me how wonderful everything was and how great his day was going to be as he thought about me all day long at work. The "Honey, I'm home" in the afternoon's... Singing and laughing together as we did the dinner dishes.... Holding hands on our way to the grocery store....

The joys of marriage. I couldn't wait!
How could it not be that way? I'm 19 years old - I know everything.
So, real world kicks in. Come to find out, John wasn't in to holding hands while grocery shopping.
Washing dishes together?? ....yep, that singing and laughing crap never happened.

It looks more like this....

Yet, don't underestimate the power of love.

Love - let's him see me all frazzled and still think I'm beautiful

Love - gives me patience when he's ill

Love - shows kindness and eats the muffins I burned for breakfast with a smile

Love - is forgiving after an argument over money to pay the bills

Love - compromises and grows after 14 years of marriage...

This LOVE is still a work in progress

and he still takes my breath away when he looks at me with those beautiful blue eyes and gorgeous smile

Remember me???

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. It seems like our household has been sick forever...
We've passed a stomach virus around for over a week now -on a positive note - my jeans are loose on me ;)

Anyway, promise to do better this week! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Writer's Workshop

Another week with Mama Kat! I chose prompt # 1

How I met one of my best friends...
I met Mandy when I was a teenager working at a christian daycare. Even though I have moved a zillion times over the last 15 years, we've always managed to stay in touch.
She's the friend that I can spend 2 hours on the phone with talking about weight or a new hairstyle I want to try and never make me feel superficial for not having anything better to talk about. She's the same girl that drove 2 hours up the road to come get me when I was pregnant with Abby and let me and the kids stay with her for a week. If I need prayer, she's one of the first I call for support. If I need to vent - there she is.
She also has a twisted sense of humor like myself, so when no one else gets what's funny -
I know she will:)

She's the reason I stared a blog - be sure to go check out her's!

We would all be so lucky to have a friend like her!
