My Thoughts

1. I feel so blessed to be Mike's wife. I remember (before we married) when it used to be all I ever wanted. Marrying him was the best thing I've ever done.

2. I want to take a Mediterranean cruise someday...just Mike and I.

3. I procrastinate (terribly) when it comes to going to bed. I am a night owl.

4. I love going to our church.

5. I would want 10-12 more kids if $$ wasn't ever a factor.

6. B/c of that, I'll settle for 3 more of our own.

7. Then we still want to adopt (from another country) after we're done having ours.

8. I hate cleaning bathrooms. Especially the floors behind the toilets. How does it get so dirty back there???

9. I miss my grandma terribly. Time is not healing that loss.

10. It hurts when I think that I won't see her again for the rest of my life here on earth.

11. When I do see her again, I can't wait to praise God with her. I think an organ/piano duet will be nice.

12. I often feel guilty that I have a college degree and I'm not using it.

13. Then I remind myself that my current job is the most important one I'll ever have...I can work the rest of my life after my children are grown.

14. Natalie is already growing up too fast!

15. I'll never forget the moment I met Natalie. I was crying so hard; I'd never felt such strong feelings of joy, thankfulness, relief, exhaustion, and pain all at once.

16. I'll also never forget the look on Mike's face when he held her for the first time. I fell in love with him all over again.

17. I think I have a touch of OCD when it comes to washing my hands. (guess that's not a terrible thing)

18. I have a hard time spending $$ on myself. I used birthday money to get a haircut last month. I don't get massages, spa treatments, pedicures, manicures, etc. I never buy shoes (unless necessity), and only get clothes on sale.

19. However, I won't hesitate to get things for Mike or Natalie when they need it.

20. I love Josh Groban's music. His voice is heavenly. I would really like to go to one of his concerts.

21. I'm anxious for the new season of Greys Anatomy. Anyone else??

22. My husband makes me laugh!

23. I am really hoping we will be able to sell our house when the time comes.

24. Natalie is refusing to eat most of her vegetables. Any suggestions??

25. My favorite movie of all time is The Count of Monte Cristo. *also a good book*

26. Mike and I need a new mattress. I'm 24 yrs old and my back hurts every morning when I wake up. I think it's as old as he is.

27. I love playing sudoku before I fall asleep every night.

28. I am grateful Natalie sleeps 12-14 hour nights and has since she was 10 weeks old. I'm preparing for our next child to be a "challenge" :)

29. We have "dog" insurance for Cole. Isn't that ridiculous? However, it's saved us hundreds, if not thousands.

30. This is my favorite picture of Mike and Natalie:
