Catch up!!

Goodness-8 months since my last post? That's a little ridiculous!!!

Here's the last few months in a nutshell (Probably not entirely in order, and not all pictured)

We went to Jail! In Branson :).

Quay Coffee opened!!!

We took down my amazing chandelier and replaced it with a ceiling fan. This was a big deal, people!

Jordan got a tattoo!

In JUNE 2013 my NIECE or NEPHEW will be here!! Danielle and Joel are havin a baby!!! I love being an aunt!!!

(Not pictured)
We got an iPad
We booked a cruise!

After getting a little spending crazy:
One job ended
I had surgery
I started house cleaning.
                                                        We re-did our entire living room!

We enjoyed fall!!!

We got a new camera that I spend way too much time taking pictures of my gorgeous ring with. I mean, look at it. Wouldn't it be hard to not take pictures of that?!

What we're looking forward to:
Our ONE YEAR anniversary in less than 2 weeks!
Hoping to get better at taking pictures so we can make a husband/wife hobby out of it :).
Thanksgiving with our families!
OUR CRUISE!!!!!! We leave on my birthday- I'd say that's an ok way of spending my birthday!
And pretty much every day because we love life and love each other. Lots-o-love ladies and gents.

That's all I have for you. Whew. 8 months of catching up. Not too shabby.

Well, here I am. In the 3rd month of my marriage, and let me tell ya---everything is PERFECT!
Getting married solved ALL my problems, we haven't argued one single bit, and I am just always sooo happy!!!

Yeeeeaaahhhhh, that's funny!

But really- marriage definitely is not what I expected it to be, but I wouldn't change anything about it! There have been some good surprises, and some not so good surprises. All I know is that you have to work at marriage. Not everything just falls into place, and you can't expect it to be all perfect.

On the other hand, you always have someone to hang out with. You have someone to keep you warm at night. You have someone to laugh at your jokes even when they're not funny and you know it! You always know that there is one person that always has your back. No matter what.
I'm thankful for my marriage, and I cannot wait to see what God has in store for Jordan and me!

Too much on my mind.

You know those times?
Those times where nothing seems to be going "your way".
When "everything bad" happens to you.
When you feel like if one more thing goes wrong, you'll surely just "break".
I'm there.

I know I am blessed.
I know others are much worse off than I am.
I know God will provide.

It's still just scary. I try to be strong. I try to hand it to God. I am still learning how to give everything to God. Why?
I don't know. God has provided for me--always. Why should now be any different?

A passage from Jesus Calling really stood out to me the other night. I don't have the book with me, but this is what I took from it.
Pray to God for what you need, but don't keep begging him to give it to you. This will only keep you in a negative state of mind. Instead, thank him for what He is already doing, and has been doing before we even knew we'd be faced with these trials. By thanking Him, you have changed into a positive mindset, so you will be thinking positively about it.

This is much easier said than done. I find myself constantly asking God for something to happen, when instead I should be giving thanks for what I know He will do!
His Will. Not Mine.

Romans 12:12
"Be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble, and always be prayerful."

Such a simple concept. So hard to do.
