My man…

September 29, 2007 at 9:41 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments

I found this on someone’s blog. This is all about my man…

1. Who is your man? Steven Leon

2. How long have you been together? 3 years

3. How long dated? 3.5 months- way to long!!

4. How old is your man? 27 (I think)

5. Who eats more? Omm on a normal day he does- but sometimes its meJ

6. Who said “I love you” first? That would be me. Are you surprised?

7. Who is taller? He is but barely.

8. Who sings better? Without a doubt me. Haha just kidding. I would guess he does. He always says I am tone deaf.

9. Who is smarter? He is. A lot smarter (and he knows it too) 🙂

10. Whose temper is worse? I would say his. I am a very close second though! We can be high strung sometimes.

11. Who does the laundry? We both do. He does his and I do mine. Well I do his too. I just don’t like for him to wash my stuff sometimes! I had a load full of pink whites one time.

12. Who takes out the garbage? Steven. That’s his job but when he is out of town I do it.

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I do. He MUST have the left side or he claims he can’t sleep!

14. Who pays the bills? That would be Steven.

15. Who is better with the computer? That would be Steven.

16. Who mows the lawn? ME, he does when he is home.

17. Who cooks dinner? Its usually a joint effort. If we are cooking we are generally both in the kitchen working on it. Its bonding for us!

18. Who drives when you are together? It depends on which car. If its his truck- he does (I wont drive that thing- I NEVER have luck with it!) If its my car I drive.

19. Who pays when you go out? Its all the same money right? It just depends who has it handiest. Usually him by the time I dig all the way down in my purse.

20. Who is most stubborn? We are definitely equal on that one.

21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? We both do. We hate being mad at each other. I pout the most though. I always find something to clean when we argue! He just gets quiet.

22. Whose parents do you see the most? Mine. One set is 30 miles away and one set is way far away!

23. Who kissed who first? We both knew it was coming but he did. He grabbed my face and kissed me and my stomach went through the floor. It was on the porch swing at his old house. We still have that swing and will til we die hopefully.

24. Who asked who out? Well this is complicated. We talked on the phone for 2 weeks every night before we hung out. I think I asked him because when he got home he went to church with me on a Wednesday night. I still remember what I wore! I changed clothes like 10 times.

25. Who proposed? He did on top of a mountain during the fall. He told me that he didn’t have much to offer but he wanted me to come on this journey with him. I couldn’t say yes fast enough.

26. Who is more sensitive? I would say that I am but he is just as equally sensitive. I know he puts off this tough, tree chopping, van drivin, trailer pulling exterior but honestly he is an extremely sensitive guy! Haha- I just got this vision of him in a red flannel shirt chopping down a tree!! We cry together during movies and he is so sweet and patient.

27. Who has more friends? He knows more people and has more acquaintances but we are pretty equal on friends.

28. Who has more siblings? We both have one brother.

29. Who wears the pants in the family? I fight hard in my stubbornness to wear the pants but he always wins 🙂

30. What do you love most in your husband? I adore his heart and love for people. He is passionate and it spills over in everything he does. He is so talented. He loves the Lord in a way unlike I have ever seen in anybody. He is so very quirky!!!

Who is next??

Here are some really random thoughts I have had today:

1. http://www.smartusa.com/ These cars really intrigue me. I know I know- learn how to do the link thing! Anyway I would be very interested in one of these one day. You should check them out!

2. I LOVE some Smokin Ed’s BBQ. I had to stop and get some on the way home today. Best BBQ in Tennessee!

3. Do you ever have those times when you store away thoughts to tell your husband all day and then when you talk to him you pretty much throw up on him before he ever says anything besides “hi?” All day I think of little things that I want to tell Steven. Today I did it again. I just get so excited to talk to him!!

4. I “read” the book (cliffnotes) “Wuthering Heights” in highschool with my crazy, lovesick senior english teacher. I remember liking it and so I just got it in the mail from Netflix. I sat down to watch it this afternoon and found it to be pretty twisted. I even turned it off toward the end. Maybe I will finish it before I send it back but it got kinda creepy and I DO NOT do creepy without Steven home! Bummer- I love anything by the Bronte sisters.

5. Our Publix is opening on Wednesday!!! I have been so excited about this. I love Publix!!

6. I am still really loving my job. See what happens when I listen to God’s voice in my life? What if I had of passed up this opportunity to stay where it was comfortable? This was a really good move for me. I feel like a girl again. I got so tired of wearing shorts and a polo shirt. I get to play dressup everyday now!!! I am sure this will get old but for now its so much fun everyday.

7. Does anyone know how to spell check on this blog thing? I know you all laugh at my mis-spellings and gramatical errors. Just keep in mind that I have been out of school for a while! I need to practice in my Harbrace!!

8. Do you know that this is premier week? I think most of the popular shows are showing their first episode this week! I watched the Grey’s Anatomy interviews. I think I might have gotten the gist of the whole first episode!

9. Steven and I are fighting off the dog itch again. Its funny at this point in our marriage we are learning to make a tad bit better decisions. We just need to stay out of Petland!!

10. Have you ever heard of the “Puffy Muffin” in Brentwood? Well we had their food brought into work this week and can I just say it was incredible! We also had “The 5 Senses” from the good ole Boro bring us food. I felt like a queen. Thank you Lord for drug reps!!

I need help

September 18, 2007 at 2:09 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

I have lost the girl who cuts my hair. ***Moment of Silence*** I loved her. She really did a great job on my hair. She has moved away and now I am left alone. There is my favorite girl at Tangerine named Elizabeth and she is the only one in this world how can make my hair look fabulous! I sadly cannot afford her anymore. If I could I would have NO PROBLEM paying her to do whatever she wanted with my hair. Now I have to find someone new. Does anyone have any suggestions? I need to let you know though that I am extremely picky about my girls though. They MUST have jet black hair and they MUST be trendy!! I don’t want “Judy” at Supercuts. I need somebody cool. I want to go shorter but will not trust this hair to anyone. If you have suggestions that fall under my criteria please let me know. 🙂

Hey kids-

I have some great pics from my birthday that I can’t wait to share but they are on Steven’s camera and I am not touching that thing!! Trust me there is a blog coming!!

Cleaning!

September 15, 2007 at 3:16 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 9 Comments

Ok- its 10:09 and my husband will be home in T- 51 mins. I am still playing on my computer and not cleaning. I have clothes to fold, sheets to change, I need to vacuum, sweep the kitchen, hang up clothes in our room and I just cannot motivate myself to do it. Sometimes I am in the mood and I LOVE cleaning but tonight it is like getting a shot in my bootie for some reason. Gosh I just don’t want to move but I love my husband and I should make the house presentable for him. I mean he hasn’t been home in a week! By the way- he never asks for this, I just do it because I love him. Maybe later on I can “minister” to him:) I really need to focus on “ministering” to my husband!! HAHA You like that one Hannah?!? We learned this at the conference last weekend. The girls taught us how to be obediant to God by putting our husbands needs above our own and how this is really a “ministry” to them! Everybody in that arena was laughing so hard that they were crying hearing these women talk about “ministering” to their husbands!! This is by far my favorite part of ministry 😉 Off to clean! Oh no- 44 mins left!!

America’s Health Care System

OMM you know I am a grown up when I just sat through an entire episode of 20/20 about America’s health care system and actually enjoyed it! I think its my job- its rubbing off on me. I was hoping I would learn more about dealing with insurance! What is happening to me?!?!

Old and New

September 14, 2007 at 1:16 am | Posted in Updates, Work | 3 Comments

Well Tuesday was my last day at the Boys and Girls Club. This proved to be a very difficult day for me. Some of the kids just don’t understand. I love their innocense. There was about 4 times that I had to choke back tears as they hugged me goodbye. I will always love that job for the kids and my old boss. I know that I am always welcome to go back and visit.

I have come to the conclusion that its just hard to grow up sometimes. Its hard to make decisions about money and work. Sometimes we have to choose things that might not be our first prefrence but are a good opportunity for us. I know that my new job (working at a great doctor’s office) is a very good decision for me. I am so thankful for my sweet husband and his support in whatever I do. I know that he truly believes in me and wants me to be happy. He doesn’t push me to make a decision based on money.

Yes it was hard to leave the club but I have to admit that I am loving being back into an office full of women again! I worked at the Gideon’s for a long time after highschool and throughout college. I did not care very much for 7:30am devotionals when you had to kneel down in the floor to pray in front of 60 something people. I would always doze off while we were on the floor for like 20 mins. There comes a point in time when your ankles and feet start to fall asleep and when you stand up you don’t know if they are going to support you or not. I loved the women that worked in that office though. One of my favorite things in the world would be to head down to the break room and see a bunch of them sitting around a table and laughing so hard that you could hear it before you got off of the elevator. I miss those women.

These last 2 days on the new job have been great. There are so many sweet women that work there! I am looking forward to getting to know them and the job. I am new at all of this doctor office stuff so I guess it will talk a little while to get used to it. I have a great boss and my sweet friend Hannah works with me!! Her wonderful husband came over and cut our grass today while Hannah and I were at work!! You have no idea how thankful I was for this.

I am also loving getting dressed up everyday! I know Steven loves it!! I equally love coming home and changing into my big gray sweatpants and tshirt! There is nothing like coming home from work and changing into your pj’s and staying that way all night 🙂

Anyway- boring blog but the new job is going great!!
