How time flies

Well I am looking forward to this weekend for a couple of reasons. First I get to sleep in tomorrow! Yea! Second Gerrit, Bella and I are going to a friends Halloween party as Fred, Daphne and Scooby Doo which I went to the goodwill today for and got some great outfits.And last but not least, Saturday is my 5 year anniversary with Gerrit. I can't believe it's been that long already! Crazy.

Since Gerrit has a test he has to have turned in by 7pm Saturday he is going to be busy studying all night tonight, and taking the test tomorrow. So unfortunately the celebration will have to wait till Sunday.

So today for my Grateful Friday I am going to write a few things I love about Gerrit.
I am grateful for Gerrit...
knowing how to fix anything I break around the house.
making me laugh, all day, every day.
always pushing himself to be a better person (in his career, relationships, and life in general)
being so active and encouraging me to do so also.
just being Gerrit!

Words of wisdom, Drink this...

You can learn a lot more from listening than you can from talking. Find someone with whom you don't agree in the slightest and ask them to explain themselves at length. Then take a seat, shut your mouth, and don't argue back. It's physically impossible to listen with your mouth open.

P.S. I got this from my morning coffee Starbucks cup. Thought I should share.

Grateful Friday

Today I am grateful for...

1. Getting to see Gerrit's Sister and her husband Chris and all the hospitality they give us when we come to visit. Also that Karen is pregnant! I can't wait to see the little him/her.

2. Hanging out with my great friend Jessica this weekend for her birthday. She is a great person and I'm honored to have her as my friend.

3. Getting to cook my mom's lasagna recipe on Sunday for my LAMBS meeting on Monday night. I love cooking because it gives me great memories of my mom.

4. My Dad puppy sitting for Bella. And for her being such a great dog.

5. Reconnecting with old friends recently.

Have a good weekend!

Mather Mud Run

So this weekend I gave myself a taste of what it would be like to join the military. Mariko, Stephanie, Lindsay and I all participated in the Mather field Mud Run as a team. I had been looking forward to it for weeks but was extremely nervous when it came time to dive into the mud pit! We had a great time. The "course" consisted of a 1 mile loop with with obstacles such as hay bails, walls, tunnels, tires and of course the famous mud pit! We did the 5 mile team so we all stuck together and kicked but. There is nothing more I can say to describe the experience so I have included pictures for your viewing pleasure!Before the race. Dry and clean!The first dip into the mud pit. We did this 5 times!Lindsay, me and Stephanie running through tires. Team "We Love Mud" crossing the finish line.Gross! Ready for a shower!
