Item #1: My wife is great. Seriously. Three years and we still got "the fire" What more could a husband ask of a wife than what Jana has given me? She's funny, beautiful, caring and the best mother and wife a son and husband could ever have. Happy Anniversary!
Item #2: I realize that this is a HUGE weekend for all of you pale-skinned vampire-loving women. (FYI I have canine teeth and I'm practically translucent thanks to a redhead mother but sorry, I'm taken girls). Now I have two things to say about the movie that you'll on doubt be flocking to in the coming days. Number one: you will be disappointed if you take the movie seriously and judge it based on its contribution to film and the cinematic arts. Pretty much a no-brainer. Number two: you will love this movie because as much as we all hate to admit it, the perfect boyfriend is as legendary as a vampire or werewolf but that won't stop you from oogling over Edward. Now with that said, do enjoy the movie and the numerous (I'm sure!) scenes of slow and even slower kissing...
Item #3: Wouldn't this be the greatest commute home from work EVER?!
This Sunday will mark 3 years since I married my best friend.
We both agree that we got married on the worst day ever (though it was, of course, perfect at the time). We got married the day before Thanksgiving - November 23, 2005. Our first anniversary was on Thanksgiving day and involved a massive allergy attack, our second anniversary we had a two-week-old baby, and this year it is on a Sunday and we will have loads of family in town. Needless to say, we don't exactly have ROMANTIC anniversary celebrations, but it is fun to remember how lucky we are to be together nonetheless.
Usually about once a week, one of us will look at the other and comment on how we can't believe we met on the internet. So unconventional. So embarassing. But seriously so meant to be. Five years ago I didn't even think I'd be married by now (I think my 9.5 year plan would have had me home from my mission and starting in on grad school right about now) and Clint thought he'd be married to someone else...
Life takes its twists whether we want them or not and I am so grateful for them.
The moment I met you changed my life forever.
For the good.
You are my soul mate.
I love you.
"From here to eternity..."
Yesterday I got called to be the Primary music leader. I am so terrified, I cried all the way home from the church. I know that sounds so lame and it could be so so so much worse, but something about this calling terrifies me. Standing in front of people is not my favorite thing. I know nothing about what I am supposed to do. It is a brand new ward so I really have no one to consult and no materials to work off of.
I think the biggest thing is that I know how important music can be, especially in primary children. So much of what I learned as a kid was through the primary songs and I feel this huge responsibility to make sure I pass that along and help them strenghten their little testimonies.
So come one, please tell me what a good job I will do. I'm not even kidding. I need it.
**This little number here is really making me want to clear my calendar for Saturday and get all sorts of crafty. What better place for a Christmas countdown than on a cookie sheet, am I right? We all know I won't get to it and if I did it would look nothing like this, but a girl can dream of being domestic...
**Speaking of domestic, anyone have a good recipe for wheat dinner rolls?
**Very excited about starting up this new tradition that I found while blogstalking "sheshe" yesterday. You hang random numbered socks up with little treats in them for the muchkins to take out each day as they count down to Christmas. Sometimes I wish I could take credit for these things.
**Dallas and I went to the new Smith's Marketplace in Lehi yesterday. It's like Smith's meets one of those really fancy grocery stores that are always on Take Home Chef meets Kohl's. Loved it.
