1 Month!

I am so excited, we will be in Costa Rica a month from today. We are so pumped and keep looking at things to do while we are there...hanging bridges, zip lining, kayaking, beach, volcanos, waterfalls--it is going to be incredible. As far as what's going on at home right now, SSDD so they say. I just wanted to post a post saying I'm alive and posting some pics of what we are looking forward to. CR here we come!

30 Posts on Truth--Post 6

Let's get to know one another. Here is the reference for this project, it also lists all the future posts!

Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.

This is an easy one, I hope to never bury my spouse. I've seen too many marriages broken up by an untimely and early death of a husband or wife. It is terrible if you are young and newly married and I feel it is equally tragic when you've been married for 65 years. I've seen both in my line of work and they are just so heartbreaking. I think it got 100 x's worse for me after marrying my wonderful hubby.

You spend your life searching for your person, your soul mate and you find it--I feel like we should all die at 100 holding the hand of our spouse. Wouldn't that be picture perfect? (Go figure, it was in the movie The Notebook.)

I Love Pinterest!

I am definitely hooked on Pinterest. I love it so much and can spend hours and hours on the site just putzing. Here are some pins off my quote board.

A change...again!

You must all think I am nuts for changing our plans over and over again. Hell, I think I am a bit nuts but that's ok.

So last I posted we were planning on getting preggo in the next few months and I was stoked--well...my parents came into town and we all talked about it and our plans have changed. Phillip had originally said that he would wait a few years if it were up to him but if having a baby would make me happy then he was on board with that. With that being said, I thought about it and I didn't want him to resent me for making the decision to have the baby, which he promised he wouldn't. But it got me thinking that his Dad died before he got to retire, his Mom and Dad didn't get to do half the things they had planned together, wouldn't that suck? Well we are going to fix that, we are going to wait two/three years and spend it together just as hubby and wife.

I had a really tough time making the decision but then on Saturday morning, my alarm went off to head to work, I hit snoozed and snuggled up with my hubby for another 20 minutes. It dawned on me while I was doing this that if we had a little baby I couldn't do this. I would need to get up and feed the baby before work, we just wouldn't have this time for just the two of us anymore that made me sad. It did help me make that decision though. We've decided to do some traveling while we're waiting. Here are our game plans:

2011--Costa Rica in August/September then Savannah in October, and a surprise in December.
2012--Washington DC in April, Omaha in June, Italy/Greece in September.
2013--Still working on trip plans for then.

So there you have it guys, our plans have changed....again. Who knows, maybe they'll change again, these are tough decisions. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful forth of July, I'll leave you with some pics from a few years ago:
