The holidays have come and gone. The last week has been a blur. We had a good Christmas. Since this was our first Christmas together as a married couple. We wanted to spend time together and with our family. So we decided to spend Christmas Eve with my family. So we went to my parents house and had a nice dinner and then unwrapped presents. Daniel got some nice shirts and pants. He also got new black dress shoes. He really needed some. His old one's had holes in them and he had to toss them. I got some clothes and we got a candy dish and a ornament. It was a nice time spent with my parents. Since I got married I haven't really spent a lot of time with my parents. I used to live at home with them and my mother got used to me being there. When went home and unwrapped our gifts to each other. Daniel got me Sex in the City movie and perfume. Daniel got me really great gifts. He surprised me and got me things I didn't think he'd remember to get me. I got him Wall-e, a Celtic music cd and a Poker game for the PlayStation 2. Next morning we went to his parents house where the whole family came to unwrap gifts. It was interesting since I'm an only child my family doesn't have any children in it. It was a blur of wrapping paper, loud toys and children laughing. Daniel's family overwhelmed me with their generously. We got gift cards. It brings a tear to my eye thinking about it. =)

I am so happy to be blessed with the family I have along with the family I married into.

"I like your Christ but not your Christians... They are so unlike your Christ"- Gandhi

I will rarely do a religious blog. I will leave that up to better people, like my husband or Gary. They in my opinion know more than I ever will about the Bible. I stumble along with my child like understanding of the Bible, God and Jesus. I have the basic understanding about right and wrong. To me Jesus was a teacher of love. That is the truth that I hold in my heart. What would Jesus do means to me that He will not judge you or harm you and above all else He will love you. I read in a story today and it reminded me of times when I didn't attend a church. About all the things I thought and felt towards churches. Don't get me wrong I always loved God and Jesus but I didn't love the church. To me they always seemed to be a place of hate. They hate this, they hate that. I never felt that I wanted to go to a place that held so much hate. I wanted a place that focused on what they loved. I wanted a place where they taught you that they loved you, that they knew that one day that you would sin but they loved you anyway. That Jesus loved you anyway. I wanted a place where everyone was welcome no matter what. I hear stories about churches not dealing with others since they belonged to different type of churches. To me that boggles the mind. How can you believe in God and not come together?

I know that there are people that quote scripture from memory and read the Bible everyday. I can't or do those things. But I do give money to help people, I'm the first to lend an ear to a friend, I try not to judge people, or get angry, I'm kind and unselfish towards others(Dan's words) and I keep Jesus in my heart. And that is the truth that I hold in my heart.

Wedding Gift Calculator

Like I said in an earlier post I like to post on the knot. One of the girls put this calculator up on the boards. It made me laugh, fall onto the floor and then laugh again....but not in a good way.

*I removed the calculator since it was driving people to my blog but not to read the blog*

Elfing around.....

Well they've been getting their photo's back and some are getting teasers. Well I asked Ashley(The most amazing photog) if she had anything I could look at. She finally gave in. Here they are. They are proofs and works of Ashley Speights and she reserves the rights. So NO saving them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our first Christmas

So we put up a lot of our Christmas things the night we got back from the honeymoon. We don't have a house and we don't really have anything of ours for decoration the house but I added something to build upon for the coming years. The first is our tree. Then the walk way to our apartment and then the doors and windows.

I don't know if any one else know's about my I'm going to blog about her. I have a chihuahua name Cincy. She's the closet thing I have to children right now. In the last few days she has really taken to Daniel. She sits next to him on the couch and snuggles next to him at night. I'm glad they've bonded.

New name....

Today I became a new person. I had been called his new person's name a couple of time but today I made it legal. I changed my last name from my maiden name to my married one. It feels strange. I had been who I was for 25 years. I was my father's only child and a girl. I knew one day I'd get married and I'd be changing my name. When the time came I feel some how like I was letting my parents down. That some how changing my name meant that I wasn't their little girl anymore. Guys don't really understand what that means they go on being Mr. X after their married while the woman gives up a part of who she was to take on a title of who she is. I had originally wanted to keep my maiden name. I liked it. It was me. It was familiar and everyone already knew me as that. I had bank accounts, bills, and my notary license in that name. I was my father's daughter in that name.

In the end I caved, not to society's pressure but to the joy of my husband. While testing out if I liked the name I signed something in it, with a scribble of a unfamiliar cursive, Daniel was very happy to see it in print. That his wife took his last name. I was happy that he was happy. It meant something to me that he was happy. So in the end I took his last name I became me, only with a new last name. And I'm okay with that.

So yesterday Daniel and I were at Target and we told ourselves that we could spend $20 on whatever we wanted pretty easy....then I walked into electronics. They had every single movie that I wanted for $10, plus a couple of triple play movies for $13. That lead to the hardest decision I've had to make in a really long time.....How badly do I want all the Die Hard movies? Having just bought myself all the Lethal Weapon movies I felt the need to own all the Die Hard's...but then there was also the Jurassic Park movies.
After about 20 minutes and a coin flip I walked a way with the Die Hards and Casino Royale. What can I say....I'm a sucker for the chick flicks.

10 reason's why.....

I love my husband...

1) He's sweet. He's been taking care of me these last couple of days. He's been working, cooking and watching our bundle of joy Cincy.

2) He's hot stuff. I'm a very lucky woman.....nuff said

3) He's a kind person. I've yet to find a person who has a bad thing to say about him. People he's worked with hold him in high regard. Parents who children he's worked with think well of him.

4) He's got God in his heart.

5) He's my best friend. There is no other person on earth that loves me as he.

6) He's a great pet father to Cincy. It's really cute to see a tall guy with a small dog. Make's me chuckle.

7) He's so smart. He's so clever with computers, DJ gear and mountains knowledge.

8) He's funny. Even when I'm sick I know I can count on him for a laugh. He moves me with just one glance.

9) His eyes. Sometimes when he looks a certain way it stops me cold. I turn to mush and forget what I'm saying.

10) Cause he married me and is my husband.

For Better or Worse

Tonight, my little wifey is sick. I came home and made her and me dinner. I also gave her some magic medicine that my dad made. I feel bad for her as I know she wants to get up and do things but she has been really sick. I promised to love her for better or worse and I plan to live up to that. Is it Christmas yet?

Comfort food.

So I'm sick (see prior post) and haven't been able to leave the apartment all day. I think I've got the flu since I've got a fever and my joints are killing me. I took the dog downstairs to have her got potty and almost couldn't make it up the stairs.

I told you all that to say this.....I really want chicken McNuggets...I really really want some. I can't get any through.......I can't drive and Daniel is watching Monday Night Football(See prior, prior post). Anyone want to bring me some?

What is your comfort food?
