6 years ago...

...Dave and I were married!!! Can't believe it's been 6 (awesome) years! Dave's mom is in town and what perfect timing for us to go on our first overnight without Evan. We ended up staying at the Marriott in downtown Hartford and it was awesome. The hotel is brand new and really nice. Went to dinner at Trumbull Kitchen and it was fabulous. Great server, good food and fantastic company ;)!! Haha. It was a great way to spend our 6th anniversary. On a side note Evan was sooo good for my mother in law! Even woke up at 7:45am NOT FAIR!!!! He would do that when I'm not here.

Myrtle Beach is coming soon enough...ahhhhh vacation...

Things I do on Vacation...

- Watch as much TLC (What not to wear, Cake Boss etc.) as I can since I don't have it at home!

- Read People magazine

- Read a book by the water for as long as I can...ahhhh love it.

- Shower at the END of the day after I'm beached out!

- Rarely wear make up :)

- Pack too much which I am committed to NOT doing for Myrtle.

- Try not to go on the computer!

Honestly though vacation is a time for us to just RELAX and be rejuvenated. We are sooo looking forward to Myrtle Beach.

Actually we are going on our first overnight tonight WITHOUT Evan! Dave's mom is in town and is coming to spend the night here! We aren't going far but are excited to celebrate our anniversary! 6 years Saturday!! Wahooooo!

Well it's been a LONG couple of weeks over there. Dave did not go out the the country this year (yay!) but has been doing " at home" missions stuff. Meaning they have been doing things in the community etc. Here's the website with pics if you'd like to take a look!

While I am soooo thankful he didn't leave this year it has been almost just as hard as if he were actually gone. I've been trying to work when I can so it feels like we've barely seen each other! Evan has been ATTACHED to me lately (more than usual) which is a tad annoying. LOVE HIM but it gets old quick. Very draining plus he is EVERYWHERE! I have found trying to go up the stairs MANY you think a gate is in order?!?! Hahha.

Anyway, I've thought about lots of things that I could blog about the past couple weeks but have just been lazy in doing so. Evan & I are flying to VA beach Saturday morning! YESSSSS! Dave will drive Sunday afternoon after church. We'll only be there til Thurs night cause we are going to a wedding Fri night which should be good times! THEN we head to Myrtle on 9/5!! The nice thing about going in Sept is there really arent many people there and the weather is still great. We are READY for a vacation. I can't wait to chill and watch TLC!!!!!!

I have signed myself up for a couple things this year...being a Bible study leader for 7 weeks this fall and running our MOPS group at church. I have kind of just gotten sick of just being an attender at church. It was a hard transition for me to stop helping with our youth ministry small groups but it was just getting to be too much with Evan and also since I didn't go on Sunday nights they need someone relevent!Everything is for a season right??!!

2 of my sisters and I went to a late movie to see Julie & Julia...I liked it! There was one random swear that soooo didn't need to be there but overall I really enjoyed the movie. I'm so thankful for my 3 sisters! :0)

So how was that for a random post?! Ha...need to go finish getting ready for my grandma's 80th b'day party this afternoon.
