Ok I read on my forum where a women had said, "If you can't trust me with a choice, how can you trust me with a child?" Does anyone else see the flaw in this? Clearly she is pro-choice when it comes to abortion but why say something that seems so stupid. Ok here is what I think about that comment. When a women decided to be intimate with a man she has made choice. Getting pregnant wasn't a choice she made, that was a mistake. She made the choice to have sex and maybe not be protected. Does that make sense? I love the bumper sticker that says "It's not a choice it's a child."

One of the main arguments that pro-choicers use is that they should be in control of their bodies, and reproduction. Hello, you are. Don't have sex. Don't have unprotected sex. It seems pretty simple to me. I mean if someone doesn't want children then they take steps to avoid that. Whether it be abstinence or protection. But past that women have no control over what happens. If somehow they do end up pregnant then they need to be responsible for their actions. Even if they don't want kids there are hundreds of women out there that are waiting for the opportunity to adopt one of these unwanted children. I am trying not to get too worked up, but this issue sets me off. After losing two children of my own and having trouble conceiving I can't understand how anyone would choose to take an innocent life because it is inconvenient.

So 28 years ago I was birthed into this world!!!!! It has definately been an interesting 28 years. My life is different than I thought it would be. But I suspect most peoples lives don't turn out the way they dreamt of them when they were younger. I do like where my life is though. I have a great husband. A nice house and too many animals!! I have great friends. A great church. And a great family even though they live too far away. I feel extrememly blessed with my life. I know that I am still at the beginning of this journey but I am excited to see what lies ahead. I know the Lord has great plans for me and I can't wait to see what they are!

stop and smell the wet dog

My chipper dog loves to play in the sprinkler. He tries to eat it, but of course that doesn't work so then he just stand in it. He is sooooo cute. So I thought I would share his cuteness with you. Enjoy...

Also, I am so excited. My two new rose bushes have bloomed. One has two different color blooms orange and pink. And the other one is pink. I am so glad that they are blooming and growing so well. It makes me happy

yeah mon!!

We are back from our vacation to paradise. Jamaica is beautiful. I suggest you all go and visit. But I would say to do the all-inclusive route, it is the best way to go. Here are a few pics for ya.

Here is the view from the plane.

Here is the first place we stayed at.

Here is the second place we stayed.

Here is Josh, my brother and sister-in-law waiting to check in. This place was so nice. They give you a cool aromatherapy towel for your face and hands (it's really humid and sticky there) and a glass of champagne while you wait.

This is the view from our room at Sandals, ignore the ugly roof and pay attention to the ocean!!

My sister-in-law took a lot of pics too. I will post those when I get them!

I'll miss you all terribly!

Well, we went to the lake on Sat and of course I didn't use enough sunscreen. Does anybody know if the make SPF 100 because that is apparently what I need!! My face is pretty red and my shoulders got some sun too, but on a positive note my arms are tanner than I think they have ever been in my whole life. Hoping this burn will turn into a nice tan, keeping fingers crossed!!!

This blog wouldn't be done without me talking about my cutie patootie dog Chip. He met a new friend this weekend. Her name is Emmy and she is Megan and Ryan's dog. They had a great time together. When she left yesterday Chip was so sad. All he did was lay around the rest of the day. He also has started a new bad habit. He has destroyed all of his stuffed animals. He likes to rip out all of their stuffing. I find it laying all over the house. I should start making pillows or something with all the stuffing.

It probably doesn't sound as good coming from my dad and not Donald Trump. Yep that's right my dad fired me. I had been doing his books for his restaurants, long story short he went from 5 to 3 and decided he could do them himself. This is just the latest in a string of weirdness between him and me. I am going to really have to pray about what the Lord wants to do with this relationship because I don't think I have it in me to continue. Let me give you some back ground, my dad let my step dad adopt me and so I hadn't seen him for 12 years and I wrote him a letter and we started a relationship. It has never been what I wanted it to be and am beginning to think it will never come close. I think he likes having me in his life because it some how lessens his guilt for what he did. But it is too hard on me. So I may be dadless once again. I guess I have always really been dadless since I don't call him dad and I don't think he lives up to what a dad should be, but I digress.

On a completely unrelated note my whole body hurts. Annie and I have been working out and my muscles don't appreciate it. Everytime I bend over or have to sneeze I am in pain, but I guess that is the price I gotta pay to be in shape!!

So finally he is home. He is so cute and adorable. He did his commands really well for the training lady. He does them ok for us as long as he is in the house. He is not good with distractions though. So we will have to work on that. He is already signed up to go back next Sat for a refresher course. One thing that I have noticed is how calm he is. It is truly amazing. He actually slept with us last night (I know we need to show him who the alpha is but I am weak sometimes) and he actually slept. Usually he would get in the bed and move and lick and bite. But not this time. I was so proud. And when we are not paying attention to him he just goes and lays down. It was definately worth the two weeks apart for him to be a calmer dog.

Nothing else new. My dog is the only exciting thing in my life. Sad but true!! :P

As soon as I post about my pic not showing up it shows. Figures! Still need help with the ticker thingy though.

Ok so I blog about the youth reading my blog and my mom reading and then no one reads it. Except some stranger. Thank you stranger for commenting.

Anywho, I'm trying not to take it personally. Like you guys have a life and more important things to do than just read my blog and comment. Not taking it personally, no really im not!

Two more days for my chipper dog. I know I sound like a broken record but I am so darn excited to see his cute little face again.

So I changed my pic and it is there when I comment on others but it is not on my page. So any of you smarties out there wanna tell me how to fix that. Also, tried to add the ticker thing and just not smart enough so fill me in on that too.

It's friday. I am so happy it is the weekend. The dr is out of town so the office is really boring since we aren't as busy as usual. No great plans for this weekend. Adam is spending the night with us tonight, so I will probably entertain myself while he and josh play video games all night long. I'm gonna hang out with Annie on Saturday. And then of course get the CHIP on Sunday. So that's my boring life. WELCOME!!!

So Chipper dog has been gone one week. We get to go and get him next Sunday. I am so excited. I miss him soooooo much.

My mom read and commented on my blog. OMG. I can't believe it. I knew that as soon as I put pics of the Granddog on here she would have to read it!! And yes mom my headaches are much better now that I am taking the extra mag. Thanks for researching and finding that for me. You are the greatest mommy!!!!!

There is something wrong with my pic. I guess I'm gonna have to change it. I will have to decide what I want to change it to. There really isn't anything better than NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK.

I am so happy that my little youths are reading my blog. At least someone is!!!! I know that it is not usually very interesting but thanks for tagging along.

I am gonna try and add a ticker to my blog that will tell me how long until my Jamacain vacation. I can't wait we are gonna have so much fun. SUN SAND AND SURF. What more can a girl ask for?!?!?!

Also, have I mentioned how much I love my church? I mean what other church can spend the whole time praying for people in the church. And just all the love that I feel there. It's great. I wish everyone could experience it. That is the way Jesus wanted it to be. It's about love not religion.

Well I am very sad because my Chippy dog is gone for 2 weeks. OMG. How can I be away from him for 2 wks. He is in puppy training and we decided this was the best way to do it. He will be in the training for two weeks and then we can go on Saturdays for the rest of his life just to keep reminding him. I am gonna miss him so much. I don't know how I will survive when I have kids and they go somewhere.

Since this post is about Chip here are some pics of him in the pool. He is not a huge fan of water, but he did ok. He really hates getting dried off. Josh and I chased him around the house before we caught him and dried him.

Hey here is an updated pic of my adorable Chipper dog!!

So it is stinking hot here. My car said it was 110 at 5:00 today. That is insane. I just stop and think of all the people that live before air conditioning. I could never do that. I am too spoiled by my A/C. Thank you God for central air.

Nothing new really going on. My friend Megan is pregnant. She was terrified she was having triplets, but alas there is only one little baby in there. She will be due in February. I am so excited, she has been wanting this for so long. And that is what I remind her of everytime she tells me how sick she is!!

Ok just a word of advice to all you crazy people out there: Grafitting a school is a felony offense so don't do it. My brother may have to pay $30,000 in fines and it will go on his permanent record. We are praying the Lord will have mercy on him.

Jamaica how I can't wait to meet you. So it is official we bought our plane tickets. Oh, I am so excited. We are going with my older brother and his girlfriend. I think it is going to be soooo much fun. I am already practicing my snorkeling in the pool, while I'm working on my tan!!

That is the noise that I hear inside my head right now. Oh my gosh it hurts so bad and drugs are not helping. If I wasn't at work right now I would be home in bed. I have TMJ and so my head and jaw hurt often. But it has been getting worse the last couple of months. Man if I just had an extra $3000 laying around I could get it all fixed. Maybe next year!!

Anywho, not much else going on. We went to Amarillo for the 4th. Dougie's bday is the 3rd so we celebrated that while we were there. He is 16. Oh my that makes me feel old!!

Ok my life is really boring right now, so nothing else to blog about. I will try really hard to make something exciting happen so you people won't be bored!

I had a great weekend. I didn't really do anything. Josh and I spent time in the pool. Trying to work on my tan, it is work in progress. Maybe when I'm 40 I'll finally have one!!!!

Josh and I are thinking about going to Jamaica in September. Oh my gosh how fun is that gonna be. We are trying to find someone to go with us. It's sad because we really are the only one of our friends with out kids. :( But that's ok because we will have a blast. Kinda like a last HURAH before we have kids.

Dang those Dallas Mavericks. They played awful last night. They better win on tuesday or im gonna be mad. And why do these stupid games start at 8. I didn't get into bed until 11:30 last night. I'm so tired today.

Youth group lake day is this Saturday. I bet you guys (and girls) are gonna have a blast. I am sad I can't be there but I will be scrapbooking my heart out. I hope I get a lot done. Hey youthers don't forget the sunscreen. Especially you BECKI!!!!:P

Samuel arrived on Monday night at 11:48, weighing 10lbs 13 oz and 201/2 inches. WOOOOOAAAA that is a big baby. He is so stinking adorable, i just want to hug and love him all the time. Annie is doing well. She is a little tired and still sore, but all is to be expected. They will go home either tomorrow or friday. I can't believe I get to be Aunt Rian. I am so excited. man am I gonna spoil that kid rotten!!!!

Now, on to news about me. My church had a prayer meeting for me last night. It was some of the women and they prayed for me and the whole baby situation. It was an awesome and overwhelming evening. I have never felt so loved in my life. Those women are so great. They gave me a charm bracelet with hearts that had scripture address engraved on it. One charm is a heart that says mother in it and has two flowers to represent my two babies in heaven. Then there are praying hands, and a tierra (I don't know how to spell that) to remind me that I am God's little princess. How great is that. My thought is that I can't wait to have a little girl and I will give it to her someday.

So I am starting all the new stuff with my new dr. I go in on Friday for a sonogram and then I will start the clomid and whatever else she has for me. I am really excited. I'm so at peace about what the future holds. I know that whether I ever have children of my own or not that God is still good and I will praise Him!!!

Someone mentioned that maybe I should post on my blog, I'm not naming any names (becki) so here ya go.

So not much going on here. We are watching the Mavericks kick the heats butt. Woohoo mavs. It is so very exciting that they may win the championship. This game has been a little messy, lots of fouls.

Update on my dr appt. All the tests I did came back fine. Which means that there is no medical reason they can find that I am all screwed up. Sounds about right to me!!! So I will see the dr in a few days and we will start this trying thing again.

Chippy dog is doing well. He is growing soooooo fast. I can't believe how big he is. He is just like a baby, he likes to put everything in his mouth. We can't leave anything on the floor because he will chew it to pieces. It is so cute to watch him grow up and see what his personality is. He is just adorable.

Annie is gonna have little samuel tomorrow. It is so exciting that I will get to meet him. I can't wait to see how cute and adorable and cuddly he is. Michael and Annie are gonna be parents, that is so weird. Times are a changing.

Well that is all I have to bore you with. So until next time...

So we got a dog!!!! Yeah!!! He is soooooooooooooo cute and adorable and I just want to hug and love him all the time. His name is Chip. For those of you who do not know we have two cats named Fries and Tots, and yes I do like potatoes!!! So the cats are not particularly happy that this intruder is trying to take over their turf. He runs after them because he wants to play but they don't understand they the just growl and hiss at him. It is my hope and prayer that they will all eventually get along. I guess time will tell. Anywho, he is part blue heeler and australian shepherd. He is so cute. I had to give him a bath last night because he is a flea ridden little stinker. He hates the bath and of course when he got out he had to shake water all over the bathroom. It's a good thing he is so adorable!!

On a completely different note, I have an appt to see a reproductive endocrinologist next week. I am very excited. I am hoping she can give me some answers and fix whatever may be wrong. Keep me in your prayers!!! Hoping to have at least one baby before I'm 30!

First a shout out to mister "TATE". Thanks so much for mowing the lawn. What a blessing that was.

So it's monday. Back to work and regular life. Me and Annie and Becki went San Antonio for the the weekend. We had a fabulous time and we talked about everything we could come up with. I was scared for a moment and thought we had run out of things to talk about but I guess we were just taking a moment to think about "ATLANTIS" and then we started talking again. It's always fun to see people's family, you know to kinda see where they "came from". Annie's aunt Susie and uncle Rudy let us stay with them and they cooked us breakfast both days. It was so yummy. I wish I had an aunt and uncle. My mom is an only child, so I guess i'll just have to keep wishing!!

Everybody needs to start studying because I'm gonna do one of those quizes like Becki did and I expect nothing less than 100's!!!

So sorry I haven't posted in a while. Work has gotten busy busy. The full time receptionist quit so now I am running the front desk full time. I like it a lot because it's not as boring as what I used to do, but it's a lot more responsibility so I have to stay on top of things to make sure they get done.

Today is my mom's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!! I don't think she reads this but just in case.

Interesting antecdote of the day: Ok so I work at a dr.s office. I tell people to sign in and take and seat. Probably 90% of the time people say ok and then tell me they are gonna go to the bathroom real quick. There are two reasons why I don't understand this: 1) No dr.'s office is that quick. You never sign in and then get called to come back right then. You have a good 5-10 minutes if not more time to sit in the waiting room and twidle your thumbs. 2) I really don't care. That is just too much info for me. So the nurse goes to get you and you are not there, her first thought would be that you are in the bathroom. So don't worry just do your business and leave me out of it!!!

Have you joined the new dance revolution? Well, come on get with the program. So my mom and little brother are here. He brought his PS2 DDR2 game. It is so much fun. At first I wasn't very good, but I'm making progress. Some of the songs are really hard. But I think it is good exercise and good for your foot eye coordination, and hey we all could use a little more of that!!!

So things are happening at work. The other receptionist found another job so I will take over the front desk full time. I think it is going to be good. It will be more of a challenge than what I do now is, so that's good. I'm a little scared because it is a lot of responsibility but I really think I will enjoy it.

Spring is here!! I love spring it is my favorite season. The weatheris usually nice. And all the flowers a blooming. It is so beautiful. Josh hates spring because it is his worse allergy season. He will suffer until the end of June. Poor guy. I am excited because we are going to put the pool up soon so it will have time to warm up before summer time. I love having a pool at my house. Somebody was a genius. This is what our pool looks like. It is huge. I think it is 15'x30'. We are gonna have a blast this summer!!!

I have been such a slacker lately. I'm sorry. I hope that you all (2) can forgive me :{ That's me with my big mustache!! I don't really have anything exciting to say. I must have writers block or something like that.

Ok to all my readers (don't act surprised that I have so many devoted fans) I must say that I have the best little brother in the whole world. (Dougie, you may not want to read this because I'm probably going to embarass you!!) Ok so here's the scoop. He is 15, a straight A student, plays almost every musical insturment ever invented and is a poet. He is just AWESOME!!!! Everytime I think about him I just smile. Just the thought of how great he is makes me all happy and tingly. Sadly though we do live in different towns and I miss him terribly. He is growing up so fast and soon he will be graduated and off to college. Or he may be on the road touring with his band. Either way it will all happen too soon. But I really can't wait to see what he does with his life and where the Lord will take him. I know that God has great plans for him and I am so excited to see what they are. Thanks Dougie for being the best little brother in the whole world. I can't wait until spring break either, we are gonna have a blast.

Here is the link to his website that has some of his poetry. You are gonna wanna stop by and read it and be amazed!!

So today is Sunday the 19th. On Wednesday the 8th I found out that I was pregnant again. I was excited but a little reserved since the last pregnancy ended in miscarriage. Well by Monday I had miscarried again. So this last week has been really hard. The title of the post comes from the Tree 63 song that says "Every blessing you pour out I'll turn back to praise. When the darkness closes in Lord still I will say blessed be your name." This song really helped me the first time and it is helping this time. I have to realize that God is still a good God regardless of what my circumstances are. He will always be there and still loves me regardless of my pain and suffering. He will heal my heart and my suffering will be for His glory. "You give and take away, my heart will choose to say blessed be your name." That is what I choose. I want to praise Him in the middle of my tears. I want to show the world that even though for reasons I cannot know or understand my God is still good. I live in a sinful and fallen world. But my God will always be here. And He will meet me in the midst of my suffering. He cries when I cry and rejoices when I rejoice. Thank you Lord that you gave me this second child if only for a moment. Thank you that my baby is in heaven with you and that one day i will get to see them both.

Well, today in church Greg talked about worship. About being undignified in our worship. Being free to express our love for the Lord. Not worrying about what others think and not trying to live up to some kinda Christian ideal, or go the other direction and being stagnent in our worship. That there is freedom in our church. Which there really is. That is one of the main things I love about my church is that there is freedom to be who we are in Christ. To follow as the spirit leads. So he talked about raising hands, kneeling, dancing, laying on the floor. All things that are mentioned in the Bible concerning worshipping the Lord. King David danced in the streets. And he wasn't concerned with anyone who had the thought that he wasn't acting like a king. He was praising his Lord.

I had some thoughts along this same line last week. When I was at church during worship last week there was a person behind me who was very vocal in their praising of the Lord. Saying things and during one song actually crying. At first I was a little annoyed. It was a distraction and I was trying to worship too. But then I realized how wrong I was. This person truly loved the Lord and was expressing that. And then I asked myself why I couldn't do that? Why was I so stagnent in my love for the Lord? It is a question that I am still trying to answer. Why am I so afraid of what people will think is really the bottom line. Why can't I be unhindered with my God.

So as you read this I want you to ask yourself what Greg asked all of us. First he said that demonstartive worship has nothing to do with your personality. Whether you are an introvert or an extrovert. It has to do with the overflow of your heart. So he mentioned that today was superbowl Sunday and he told us to watch how people and ourselves are when watching a football game and think why can we not express our love to the Lord of the universe, the God that saved us from eternal damnation the same way we express when someone makes a touchdown????

So what's up with you guys?? Oh well, that sounds exciting!!

Anywho, I hope that I'm one of those three people that Becki talked about that update their blogs regularly. I know that I have been slacking lately, but I'm working on that.

So the building that I work in has 4 offices in it. When I got here this morning I noticed that the bench in the courtyard area was broken and then I noticed that Dr. Adam's window was broken. Apparently they threw the bench on the ground to break it and then used one of the pieces to break the window. They took some cash, a tv and vcr and some other small things. Also, the electrical box on the back of the building that turns the lights out was open and messed with. Spooky. I'm getting Deja Vu from becki's work getting broke into. It just amazes me that people can be so self centered that they think they can take whatever they want. They are too good to work and be a normal part of society. They take what they want from anybody that happens to be there. Our house got broken into once. It was scary. They did it between Josh leaving for work and coming home for lunch. The stole a necklace that Josh gave me for Valentines day that was irreplaceable. It makes me so mad when I think about it.

Too bad we don't live in a perfect world. The only thing that makes this life easier is knowing that the Lord will deal out His justice and people can only run from Him for so long.

How do to all!! So this was a pretty good weekend. We had our women's breakfast at my house so Josh and I cleaned our little butts off on Friday. After the women's breakfast we ran some errands, had a nap and then went to dinner at Saltgrass, they have great steak. I love weekends like that where you don't really have anything to do so you can relax and take it easy. Of course we are living in denial about not having anything to do because we still have a whole garage full of boxes to unpack!!!! My plan is to have them done by Valentine's day, of course I wanted to have them unpacked by the end of Jan but I'm pretty sure that won't work out.

So yesterday Aubrey (my biological father) and his wife Stephanie came over to see the house and we went to lunch. We went to Pappasittos. Oh my gosh they have the best beef fajitas. If you haven't had them yet you have to try them. They seriously are one of my favorite meals. Oh and I had some leftovers so guess what I'm having for lunch today!! What What!! We had a good time with Aubrey and Steph. We talked and laughed. It was good because our conversations tend to be really surfacy with them, but this was nice, not really deep but still nice.

Ok, so I'm a little sick today. There was something that blew in on Saturday that has gotten me. I'm stuffed up and running all at the same time. It's crazy. You would think that since I work for an allergy dr. that I wouldn't have to suffer so much, but that's not the case. Since we have been trying to get pregnant I haven't been able to really take anything. I had some benadryl last night and I think it helped. I was going to bring some with me to work to take today but I forgot. So I will suffer through the day with my wonderful allergies.

On a different note, Josh's parents came to visit this weekend. We had a really good time. We ate a lot, I mean a lot. We went to Ikea which was fun, but it wore me out. I think it was too soon after the last time. But we got the two cabinets that we forgot. Josh and his dad started to put up the cabinet doors. They look really good. It's weird to have to open a door to get a glass for some water!! Hopefully we will finish those tonight. Josh's parents also brought us our new HUGE KING BED. It is so big, it's crazy how big it is. Josh and me and both cats can be on it and not feel each other. So we got to move the full size bed into the office. We bought a duvet cover for our comforter. Now I need to get some stuff to stuff these pillow cases I have that have the brown and blue in them. And we still have to paint with the blue, I think we are going to put a border around the windows and doors with it. I think it will look really nice once it is done. We have to get the house in order because we are having the women's breakfast there on saturday. Lot's of work left to do!!!

So it's wednesday and we had youth group tonight. It's always fun to hang out with the young'ins. It's fun to see people that are in a place that you were once. Realizing that when you were there you didn't know what the heck you were doing either!! Michael taught on proverbs and about being wise. It was really good. I really hope that it sinks in for them and they don't take the "default" way out but they chose to make something of themselves that includes an intimate relationship with God. I hope that the five of us are giving them a little glimpse of what it is like to follow God in your 20's while being married or single, working a full time job, being a servant and having kids. And that the glimpse is something that they want in their own lives. We'll just keep on prayin!!

Ok, so I haven't been bloggin on blog #1 enough because I have been spending to much time on blog #2. But shhh, don't tell blog #1, it thinks it's my one and only!!!

Anyway, so what's been going on...? Josh and I have been working on the house. We have all the IKEA furniture put together and we are going this sat to get the pieces we forgot. His parents are coming into town on friday so we are going to make the trek out there with them. They should enjoy it and you never no what the parents may want to buy you because you are such a great son and daughter-n-law!!!!!

So we have this hideous bathroom. The tile is two differnt shades of pink and the tub, sink and toilet are all another shade of pink. What were they thinking in the 50's? I mean did Mary Kay live in this house or something? Well we couldn't afford to redo it so i had to try and find a way to make it work. So I found this fabric that was pretty modern. It was squares and they were white, green, black and two shades of pink. So I decided to make this my shower curtain and then get white, black and green towels to go with it. Since this was fabric I was going to have to MAKE the shower curtain, and my mom wasn't here to do it for me since she is the master sewer. Anyhoo, I decided I would do it and it didn't turn out too bad. If you are sitting on the toilet and you stare at it long enough you notice that it doesn't really line up at the bottom. But hey i still feel good for accomplishing this feat. I'm gonna take a picture of it and try to put it on here for the masses to see and be green with envy at my talent!!

Hello all. If you will look in the top right hand corner of your screen you will find a button that says "NEXT BLOG". I have found that once I am done writing my blog I like to push that button and read other peoples blogs. I am interested in the lives of people I don't know and once actually had a small conversation with one of these people about a book. So while pushing the "NEXT BLOG" button is fun, I have found that blogs are not censored. And by not censored I mean you can write about anything and put a picture of anything on your blog. Which I really don't have much of a problem with since I believe in free speech and all. But it really threw me off when I happened upon one of these uncensored pages. So all you blog readers just be careful when pushing the "NEXT BLOG" button.

For my next rambling I am going to talk about something I read on a blog I happened upon. It was a lady and her blog was all about the special things that God had done for her that day. Nothing specific. Like a beautiful day or an email she had been waiting for. Just little things that happen to us all and we tend to over look in our busy lives. So I liked the idea of remembering and writing down all of these things that happen. I haven't decided if I am going to post them here or start a new blog just for them.

And last but not least my annoyance of the day. I have found that with my new laptop I have a tendency to push the space bar twice between words. It is very annoying and makes everything look funny. I do not even notice that I am doing it when I do. I will have to figure out why this is happening and how I can fix it besides just typing slower.

Ok, if you do not live near an Ikea, boy do I feel sorry for you. We just got one here in Dallas less than a year ago, and it has been heaven ever since. Yesterday was my third time to travel the highways of Texas (it is actually in Frisco, which is about an hour from my house) to visit the glorious store. The first time that Josh and I went was on opening day. We got there really early and had their 99 cent breakfast and then shopped our little feet off. We came home with a few things that day nothing big. The next time we went we got a few more little things. There were big furniture pieces that we had our eye on, but nothing we really needed, so we couldn't bring ourselves to just buy them. But, that has all changed. We realized its really nice to buy a house right before Christmas because people gave us money!!!! So this time we went to Ikea we were on a mission. And it is even more fun to go there when you have money to blow!!! So we bought a new diningroom table, an entertainment center and a buffet type thing for the dining room. I am so excited. We got two pieces put together last night and hopefully will finish tonight. So for those of you who do not have a store I highly suggest going to their website and getting yourself a catalog and then let the dreaming begin!!!
