It's been a while...

and I've only got a few minutes before I have to head off to pick the girls up from mom and dad's. I just wanted to let you know we are still alive! I've not had time to even turn the computer on at home, much less sit down and type on it. I have taken lots of pictures and we've had some fun times that I will be blogging about shortly. Steve and I are about to take a trip to VEGAS!!!! That will be next week, and there will be no GIRLS to take care of. It's going to be really fun reconnecting with the best husband ever! And then the girls and I are going to pack up 2 days after Steve and I get back and go to the beach with my parents for their 40th wedding anniversary. So, I will be doing lots of updating while I'm there. Maybe the week off from life will give me the time I need to get caught up. It seems like forever ago that Maria tagged me and I'm just getting to it. So here goes:

8 Things I'm Looking Forward To:


Financial freedom

Seeing the girls accept Jesus as their Lord

10th Wedding Anniversary
