I just wanted to let everyone know how proud I am of my hubby. He has been studying so hard over the past several weeks for his arborist certification. (I learned just recently that he can be a nerd when he wants to!!) Anyways, he got his certificate in the mail yesterday...HE PASSED!! We just want to thank everyone for all their thoughts and prayers. God truly our answered prayers!
Have a great weekend!

Happy 25th to me!!

I know it is about 2 weeks late, but on June 20th I celebrated my 25th birthday. Joel makes a really big deal of birthdays (which is a great thing becauseI like to celebrate for at least a week). He planned a wonderful weekend in Nashville. On Friday night we stayed at the Loews Vanderbilt and went to eat of the Melting Pot. The hotel was so fancy. It was too fancy for Joel though, he could not understand why a cup of coffee in the room would cost him $1. He insisted that it be free after all we paid to stay there! Our dinner at the Melting Pot was AMAZING. We spent Saturday with our Nashville family and friends. And for the record don't let Joel tell you that he beat me at a friendly game of cornhole because that is so untrue!!

Thanks honey for making my birthday and everyday so special. I love you bunches!
I hope everyone has a wonderful, long, 4th of July weekend!
