4 years ago this month....

Jake and I were anticipating our wedding in December, when we started an intense pre-marital class. At the time i was still in school working on my Marriage and Family Life Education of course i knew it was more important to spend time preparing for the marriage then the wedding. This 9 week course covered everything! It was amazing! And i feel that it was key to keeping our priorities straight right from the beginning!

Well...Dr. Kimberling, who facilitates and wrote the curriculum for the course, has hired me to help out with this semesters course!!! YEAH for doing something somewhat related to my formal education!!! If you know anyone who is getting married or who already is married, young or old this is a great course!!! you need to check out a cord of 3 strands ministries!

20 things you now know about me...

1.I have the most amazing worship experiences in my car, by my self, with my eyes open of course.
2.I'm not very career driven, never have been. I'm just not a "climb the ladder" kind of girl. I just want to be a mommy...if that makes me old be it!
3.I hate making the bed
4.That show "Cheaters" that is on REAL late on Saturday nights is my guilty pleasure.
5.I worked at Target for 4 months my first semester of college and have been addicted ever since.
6.I watch "the business of being born" at least 3 times a month.
7.It took me 5 straight years to finish college...yes i said straight...i never stop...i took full time hours every summer too!! I guess that happens when you change your major 2 times and add a minor.
8.My job has nothing to do with my degree.
9.Jake and I lost a baby at 6 weeks in April.
10.I was diagnosed with dyslexia in the 3rd grade.
12.I lived in a barn until i was 4 years was a barn converted into a house.
13.I struggle everyday to give control to God.
14.I am a republican and understand that even God says there is a time for peace and a time for war....but i wish we could just all get along...republicans-democrats, Muslims-Christians, Americans-Iranians, OSU fans-OU fans ;) you get the point.
15.My favorite movie of the moment is "the terminal"
16.I spend way too much time blog stocking.
17.A few years ago, i googled "average age of a first time mom in America". The answer was 25. Since then I have been obsessed with making it to 25. which is weird since in most circumstances i could'nt give a crap about being "average".
18.I will be 25 in March.
19.I wish i knew my mom, dad and brother more deeply.
20.I heart purses that go diagonal across my chest.

Forget Cartoons....

our favorite Saturday morning activity is the OSU-OKC farmers market. Heather and Rhonda decided to join us this morning which was a treat :) We left with a light load for us....peaches, long beans, okra(which jake is frying up at this very moment.yum.) and some natural chapstick. :)

My secret dream (which i guess isn't so secret anymore:).... "Christy's Cloths"....I really want to have a booth at the farmers market with everything cloth!....cloth diapers mostly...but also cloth napkins, cloth/canvas shopping bags, etc....what do you think???? :)
