Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

my love language is totally quality time so i love dates. sitting on the driveway after the kids are in bed, sipping diet cokes is a date to me. any time i get to spend with my honey is a date. and i cannot explain how wonderful it makes me feel.

this past weekend we were in dallas, and we went to a wedding sans babies. (thanks, susu!) a great date! it was so fun to wear non-mom clothes, hold hands with my honey and carry a purse - no diaper bags with my wallet shoved in. and we had several hours of only adult contact. no noses wipes. no diapers changed. no mouths to feed. so sweet was when landon looked over at me during the ceremony and whispered, "three years." we're coming up on our anniversary, a fact that's easy for forget when your head is filled with hollers for "nanas!" (bananas), "mama! mama! mama! mama!" (she's practicing her broken record impression) and sweet little boy cries for more milk all...the...ever-lovin'...time.


think that's good? listen to this!

landon has been dying to take me to an odessa high/permian football game since we started dating. this year, both teams are undefeated with records of 4-0. the game is this friday.


actually, his cousin adam did. we're going to dinner and then the game with adam and his wife, pam. landon's aunt toni is going to watch ellie and grayson for us.

football included in a date?!?! you gotta be kidding. so perfect.

the icing on the cake is how excited landon is. i am so happy when he's happy, no matter what the cause. and let me tell you, the boy is pumped.

yay for dates!

Practice your cheer O H S!!!! You know really, anybody that's anybody will be at this game. The Presidential candidates will probably make a half-time appearance and Tony Romo will do the coin toss. Sorry your going to miss all that KJ. (well it might not happen exactly like that but its gonna be big!)

You just haven't lived 'till you've been to a OHS/PHS game! Have a great time!

I sure wish I was going.
