Today is my mom and dad’s 35th Anniversary! THIRTY FIVE YEARS!! Isn’t that amazing? It seems most people today can’t even make it past 10 years let alone 30! To this I say Congratulations Mom and Dad and thank you for being such a great example to my sister and I.

I often wonder in my own marriage how Mike and I will keep that spark alive. Thankfully in the eight years we’ve been married we’ve found that despite the low points, the high points seem to get higher and higher every year. I’ve often hinted at some ways that Mike could be a bit more romantic, but for the most part he does a pretty decent job. However, in order to continue encouraging him I’ve found a wonderful site that offers every husband ideas to romance their wife.

Romance for Everyone is a great site in which you can find great ideas for showing your wife you love her, from taking her on a romantic date to writing her romantic love letters. If you are looking for a way to spice up your marriage or show your spouse you love them, this site is FULL of excellent ideas in which to do just that.

As for me, I think I may just set Romance For Everyone as my hubby’s homepage so that he gets some good ideas 😉 Think he’ll notice??

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!

Ready or Not?

I don’t usually cover political topics here on my blog. First because I don’t really get into all of the hype that surrounds political figures and their beliefs. Secondly because it’s normally a topic that steps on more toes than I am willing to step on.

Today marks an interesting day in this country’s existence. The invitation and arrival of a known terrorist supporter on our country’s soil. The thought of it really makes me shudder. I’ve heard over and over how this is what makes our country so great, the ability to free speech and the ability to protest that speech if we so feel inclined. I’ve walked that line over the last day or so since hearing this story of understanding why they would want to hear from him all the way to the other side of being down right MAD that they would be stupid enough to invite someone like this man to our country.

I know his arrival is not being celebrated, not even by those who invited him, but at the same time, I can’t help but feel sorry for those who will have to sit there and listen to this man talk about what is mentioned in this quote taken from FoxNews:

“When we take a look around us, we are not happy with what we see,” Ahmadinejad said through an interpreter, via video. “Threats of war have affected everyone. Continuous wars have in fact hurt the human spirit. If we look at the root cause of some of these problems, we will be able to think about how to build a better future, a more prosperous future based on peace and security of all humanity.”

This man has ADMITTED to aiding in terrorist attacks, selling weapons to Iraq that have killed OUR soldiers, and now building nuclear weapons. It is a well known fact that he is a liar and that he is as big an anti-semite as they come! He has been known to question the reality of the Holocaust by calling it a myth and wanting to wipe Israel out.

I can’t help but wonder if we are hearing the antichrist himself. Our pastor is doing a sermon series right now on the end times. We’ve been looking at the “signs” which Christ tells us to look out for in order to know the end is coming.

To hear Columbia University’s reasoning behind their invitation I wonder just how much we need to know about the enemy…quote:

“It’s extremely important to know who the leaders are of countries that are your adversaries,” Bollinger told ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “To watch them to see how they think, to see how they reason or do not reason. To see whether they’re fanatical or to see whether they are sly.”

Do we need to invite him onto our soil to watch him to see how he thinks or reasons? No. Ahmadinejad’s idea of justice is to kill those who speak out against him. Can’t we look at his actions as we know of them without having to listen to the lies that come out of his mouth?

Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, is probably the only one who seems to get how stupid this whole idea is. He said, “I think he’s said enough that I find disgusting and despicable.” Bloomberg has stated that he will not be hearing what Ahmadinejad has to say.

“So if they say, ‘Run to the country and see him arrive!’ or, ‘Quick, get downtown, see him come!’ don’t give them the time of day. The Arrival of the Son of Man isn’t something you go to see. He comes like swift lightning to you! Whenever you see crowds gathering, think of carrion vultures circling, moving in, hovering over a rotting carcass. You can be quite sure that it’s not the living Son of Man pulling in those crowds.” Matt. 24:26-28

The Growing Kitchen Table

Our kitchen table will soon be moot. It was after all made for a family of four and as you all know that is about to change very soon. We’re deciding now if we should look at adding a chair and expanding our table (it is a butterfly table so it has a leaf) or if we should start looking for a whole new table and chair set.

Well, Furniture from Home has a ton of dining room furniture. All from the more traditional type of dining furniture to the more modern dining furniture. Some of the modern furniture looks like something right out of the Jetson’s, and while it’s not really MY style, it’s pretty cool to browse their site and see what people decorate with. I also like some of their more formal dining room furniture, but my style lands somewhere in between the modern and the formal.

I like how this site allows you to look at each piece closely. Buying furniture like this is a HUGE investment and not being able to see for your own eyes before purchase is often difficult. This site at least allows you to get a good idea of what you’re buying before it lands on your front door.

Myspace User?

So about a year and a half ago I was sucked into this world on the internet known as Myspace. While it has undergone a TON of criticism, I really enjoy keeping up with all of my friends from high school and college now that we’re all living in different areas around the country. I’ve even gotten entrapped in adding widgets and quizzes and all that fun stuff to my Myspace page.

MySpace blog quizzes has a ton of great quizzes and other widgets that you can add to your blog or myspace page. You can create your own quizzes or choose from thousands of quizzes that have been created by other users. You can even customize the colors to match your page.

Really? Cool, I will try it
Didn’t know, don’t care
