Donate water this Christmas....

Watermark Conspiracy 2009 from Watermark Community Church on Vimeo.

Watermark is teaming up with ALARM, a ministry in Africa, to drill more water wells in Burundi and Uganda. They have already drilled 8 wells and have 21 more underway.

Due to their previous work children have been able to attend school instead of fetching water, families are able to set up a home of their own by the water wells to live a better life, and Watermark is able to share the gospel and love of Christ.

I'm going to donate to this because it's a worthy cause and I think everyone deserves clean water. Plus it's a great way to love this Christmas and share all that the Lord has blessed us with! After all it's His money, not ours. You can donate too if you would like to HERE

This day last year.....

I was asked to walk down the beach with this cute boy named Bryan. That day Bryan did the sweetest thing , he proposed to me in front of this cute lifeguard stand! I was in such shock and couldn't believe it was real. It was too perfect, gorgeous weather, on the beach in Sarasota and the most amazing sunset ever!

...ok so this is the staged proposal, I was balling my eyes out in the original. The re-play has the crazy orange sunset behind it though!

Most of these pictures can be seen on our wedding website! I never shared it with the blog world because you never know what kind of crazy spam you could get.

My favorite page is the photo album page.

Thanks Bryan for one of the best days of my life, Tuesday November, 25th, 2008!

When I grow up...

When you were little what did you dream of becoming? I feel like when we were kids we had such a clear vision of what we wanted to become. Little boys want to be firefighters and little girls want to be ballerinas. As you get older things get more complicated and life changes. Also I feel like God's plan may not be anything that we had imagined and can be even better than what we had hoped for.

Growing up I always wanted to be a flight attendant. They were always the nicest people! Since Dad flew for TWA we would travel a lot then and were never disappointed with the service.

As I was finishing college I didn't really know what I wanted to do other than work in sports and so that is what I did. After having a few jobs since then and gathering up a few skills along the way it is clear that I like organization, tasks with a completion phase that I can cross off my list, time with people and overall work that is rewarding.

It is all clear now that I can use all of these skills and things that I enjoy in my new job as a personal assistant! I'm so looking forward to start working with Sunni on the 14th. That is when I do my first week of training with her. I'm so excited to be able to spend this time with her and learn the ropes. This job will be very rewarding and productive which I love both!

What did you want to be when you were little and what are you now? Is it all that you dreamed, more or less of what you expected it to be?

Woops a daisy...

It all began last Wednesday night....Bryan, Mick, Kasey and me went to our favorite sushi place, which will remain nameless for the parties involved. We finished up some scrumptrulescent sushi and saaki.

After we completed our dinner the couple next to us left. I saw that they left so much food on the table, and I always think that is such a waste. So I dared Mick to eat a couple pieces of their sushi. He said yes, so I grabbed the big black plate with one piece left and then put a couple more pieces on there for good measure.

Just as Mick finished eating the last piece and saying how delicious they were, the couple walked back inside and to their table. My heart completely dropped, I thought they had left. About 15 minutes had passed and I guess they went out for a long smoke break. It would've been fine (well not fine) if we had just grabbed a couple pieces, but it was clear that their ginormous black plate was on our table and I had no time to get it back before they returned.

I was laughing uncontrollably and had to run to the bathroom so that I wasn't laughing in their face. Mick went to the bathroom too, leaving Kasey and Bryan to face the music. I felt horrible, but I could NOT contain myself.

After laughing to myself in the bathroom for a few minutes I returned to the table and Bryan said that he had told them. After gathering my composure I walked over to the couple and said I'm incredibly sorry, I told them it was a dare and I thought that they had left.

The guy laughed it off and said no biggie, however the girl was not so forgiving. I gave the waitress $10 and told them I hope that covered at least one of their rolls and I apologize ten more times!

Bryan says that is his most embarrassing moment too, poor guy. He may be having second thoughts about marrying me, just kidding.

Most embarassing moment?

I had my first ever most embarrassing moment of my life last week. It also happened to be Bryan's most embarrassing moment too. I am willing to share, but only after I hear other peoples stories first. I can't be the only one who wants to get away like a Southwest commercial!!

Headed up North

It's that time of year again...Packers vs. Cowboys in Green Bay!!! I'm looking forward to taking another one of these:

This time we may have to bundle up a little more. It's supposed be a high of 47 and a low of 38. Our traveling group has grown quite a bit. Brad, Nick and Rob are coming too!

Before we go to the game on Sunday we are going to stop off in Madison on Saturday for the Wisconsin vs. Michigan game. Go Wisconsin!!

We also get to stay with Nana and Bapa in Madison too! Then head up to Green Bay to see Laurie and John. Grandma is going to be there too! I'm looking forward to it!

It's a boy!

I bet that scared a few people, not me but her. Brookie, my bestie, one of my matrons of honor is having a little boy!! We are so excited for her and Freeland!

Here's a fun little pic of the fabulous four:

I bet Brooke's face looked a little like that when they found out. Yay!!

I'm ready to cut and color my hair. Going back to brown. It will probably be dark like this to start with:

However, I don't know how short I want to go. What do you guys think?



or...Keep it long and just trim it?~
