Our Weekend

Andrew and I enjoyed our weekend together in Bowling Green! Friday night, we worked at Natcher's Fall Festival, WOW, there were a TON of people there. Then, we went to watch some Friday Night Football. Saturday was nothing but LAZY! It was fabulous! Today, we went to church, lunch, and hung out with Ann Marie. We did some shopping and went to dinner with Emily.

Now, Adam, my brother who is living with me, just left for Washington, DC. He is going to be working there through the weeks. So, I am at my house alone. Well, Emily will be with me alot! Both of our loves are working out of town, so we much stick together. I still have yet to stay the night by myself, but I think that time in my life might be coming to a close. I am sure you will hear all about it when I finally do stay by myself. I'll leave you with a super cute picture.

Please say a quick prayer for Andrew. He will be traveling to Iowa on Thursday and coming back on Friday. He will be flying out of Nashville. When he gets back on Friday, we will get to spend the weekend together. Natcher (my school) is having their fall festival, and we are going to watch his cousin play football Friday night. We hope everyone has a great weekend!

Finally back in Bowling Green for the Weekend

So, we were finally back in Bowling Green this weekend. The past 3 weekends, Addie (our dog) and I have traveled several places in Indiana to get to spend the weekend with Andrew. So, Friday night we went to watch Greenwood get slaughtered by Bowling Green with our great friends Keila and Andy. Keila is a dear friend that just got a job at Natcher (my school) and is such a great listener. Saturday brought some fun family times. My mom and dad came down for Emily's shower in Bowling Green. We went to dinner with Emily's mom and dad at Mariah's, then to Brusters for some good ice cream. Today has been great! Church, nursery, and a day at home doing NOTHING! It was great! Rented a movie, took a nap, cooked lunch, relaxation times 10.

Tomorrow brings Andrew driving back to Evansville at 5 am to get to work ontime. I start another week at school (2 weeks until Fall Break), but the sweet Gilliam family is having Addie and I over tomorrow night for girls' night. I am so excited and I love those sweet kids!! Andrew will be traveling to Iowa on Thursday and Friday, so if I don't update before then, please pray for safe travel. Also, friends from our small group had a baby on Thursday, 5 1/2 weeks early. He is doing well but still in NICU, so please keep them in your prayers as well!

1-Year Anniversary

So, Andrew and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary yesterday. We started celebrating Friday afternoon and evening by going to Jasper, IN (not a real big place) and staying in the hotel for the night. We went out to dinner only to find out on the way that Andrew forgot the Holiday World tickets at my parent's house in Evansville. So, we went back to Evansville after dinner (about an hour away) to get the tickets.

Saturday we went to Holiday World. It was perfect. We were re-living our honeymoon, just not to the extent of Universal Studios. We had a fun day full of roller coasters and the water park. We went back to my parents' house Saturday night and played games. Sunday, we were going to go out to breakfast and to open houses', but due to Hurricane Ike coming up north, fallen tree branches, and no electricity, we just hung out around the house.

Monday, was our actual anniversay. Andrew was working in Evansville and I was having a normal day of teaching. I had planned to hang out with Ann Marie for the night and order pizza. I got an e-mail from Andrew saying that I had a package coming, so make sure I was home. I called Julia, and they brought Ann Marie to me. My sneaky husband had no package, but surprised me by showing up here in Bowling Green. He couldn't stand the thought of us not being together on our 1 year anniversary. So, it was like old times, with Andrew and Ann Marie. Adam and Emily came over and hung out with us too!

Tonight, I am just sitting here at home, alone, pretty bored, watching Biggest Loser. It's tough to have my husband 2 hours away on lazy nights like tonight. I can't wait for him to be back tomorrow night for dinner with friends!
