Feel Like a School Girl Again!

This morning began with a series of unfortunate events that I will choose not to share publicly:)  

Let's just say that I can laugh about it all now!

Anyway, after multiple events...when all I wanted to do was cry...

I started to sing my favorite camp song from Royal Family Kids Camp.

Insert music here...
"It's a good, good, good, good, good, good morning;
 a good, good, good, good, good, good morning;
 a good, good, good, good, good, good morning;
It's gonna be, a very good day!!!

Half way through my song I realized it was a good morning, and a good day!!

Today was our 18th wedding anniversary!!  

which I had forgotten until that moment

So there was only one thing to do...I beautified myself and prepared to surprise my love at work.

(after a bit more drama...I made it there with goodies in hand)

I can tell you I felt like a nervous school girl again!!!  

Butterflies in my stomach, asking my girls if my hair and outfit looked ok, hoping that I was able to successfully make it to hubby's office before he found out I remembered our anniversary.  

My mission was successful!!  He was surprised!!

And I think he liked his chocolate covered strawberries (as well as several

Then I learned that he also had a surprise in store for me!!

Later the love of my life took me on a date.
I had yet to go in his jeep with the top and doors there was a promise of going off road:)

Again I felt like a school girl going out to dinner with my hottie and then some adventure!

 Let's just say I didn't die!
We almost got stuck two times.
As we approached a LARGE puddle (with an unknown depth)
I said, "well, lets see if three is a charm".

Not only were we stuck, the jeep was almost on it's side.
(it was dark and we were a few miles in...
my visions of walking out in the dark through rough terrain and critters got the best of me)
I started praying in my head and then as it was obvious we were stuck, I started praying out loud.

God is so very faithful even in the small things!
We got out...and had ourselves a good laugh!!

I will say that the funniest part was walking through Walmart after for a grocery run.  The picture does not do him justice!  Hubby had mud on his face, head, neck, back, and down his legs as well:)

I am so very thankful for the past 18 years that I have had with the love of my life!!

And I cannot wait to see what the next 18 have in store for us!!


  1. That is so funny! What a great anniversary!

    My husband and I eloped in the month of August and had our church wedding in Dec...we have to remember the August date for legal reasons but we always forget it each year because we celebrate the Dec. date!

    Congratulations on 18 yrs!

  2. "Butterflies in my stomach, asking my girls if my hair and outfit looked ok..." As how it should be, even after 18 years! LOVE this! And how you can still go have a fun time together, mud and all! I wish you many more happy and adventurous years together!
