5 Years Of Adventure

The past weekend John and I celebrated 5 years together.

I can never have to many excuses to have a date night, that's for sure!
Not only that, but it was on a Friday that we first started dating, and this year it fell on a Friday as well.

The Saturday after I was invited to an annual BBQ, and John came with me.  So of course this year we showed up back to the same BBQ! Every time we go back we remember the very moment I was walking up to John 5 years ago and we were both looking at each other thinking, "Wow! This is someone I'd be proud to be with, I can't believe we are here together!"

Everyone was so surprised and excited to see us because they all know that is where we had our first date and here we are 5 years later married with a baby, ok fine, toddler.

The kids had so much fun, as always, and being in the same place with a completely different set of circumstances really puts in perspective how much finding each other has changed our lives.

Whenever I look at our relationship I always think what an excellent team John and I are.  I actually don't think I know many couples that work as well as a team as we do.  We can literally pick up and move to the other side of the world in a matter of 2 weeks after making the decision we want to, with 3 kids in tow!  And it all happens so seamlessly.

We always always ALWAYS agree on big decisions and make decisions quickly and accomplish goals swiftly.  I love that, for way too many years we were stagnant, finding someone that moves at the same pace as I do with the same urgency is extremely refreshing.

5 years and Jamaica, Bahamas, Greece, Germany, Denmark,Dubai, Oman, and many states and cities in America later I can easily say we have jam packed these 5 years with lots of fun, travel and adventure.

We already have so many different, bigger more amazing adventures planned for the next year and I am more excited than I have ever been knowing my biggest dreams are so close I could almost reach out and touch them.

So to John,  thank you for being the perfect partner for me during this amazing journey, here's to our never ending happily ever after.

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.

 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!

Settling Into Spring

Georgia has been absolutely beautiful for spring so far.
I love almost aspects.
The blue skies, the greenery, the flowers, being outside, having our waterfall back on, nights outside and so much more.
I noticed today that my seeds are starting to sprout in our garden and that makes me incredibly excited and proud. I even love the rain and the storms, every thing is so cozy and not cold!

And best of all, having friends and family to enjoy it with.

The parts we could do without is the pollen and i85 going up on flames.
