Just look at these Little Gems!

I have been totally consumed by this activity this week...

The boys are playing baseball this year and I couldn't be more pumped up! I don't think that I have ever had as much fun as I do watching my sweet baby nephews play baseball. In the past I have always imagined myself having girls and dressing them up in the cutest pink frilly outfits with the biggest bows, but I want you to know that baseball has changed me.
I know that the Lord will give me what he thinks that I need, but I have always secretly hoped that was girls. I am hear to tell you now that I would be so excited to have a little boy now too! I just think that it is so fun seeming them play ball and it is so cute how they get so into it! Tyler plays first base and I know that I am partial, but I think that he might have a future in MLB. His stance on base absolutely cracks me up! Bryson has played both the outfield as well as catcher. It makes me laugh because all the kids beg to play catcher and I think it's because you get to dress up and wear what they think is a costume-so cute! They both have consistently made some big hits, Tyler even hit an in filed home run...Go Cubs!
Here are a few thoughts on this Good Friday. "He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed." 1 Peter 2:24
Jesus willingly was crucified after being falsely accused of crimes all so that he could pay for our sins. He did this for us, to show us His love! He was crowned with Glory. I am amazed by the love that He shows me each and every day! He is absolutely amazing!
Have a Great Easter Weekend!

This is just the beginning...

For me, this whole "blog" thing started by visiting the blogs of some girlfriends of mine. After a few weeks, I was pretty much hooked! I found a network of blogger girls that shared the same interests as me...I was super pumped! So, I began thinking about starting my own blog and I think that this is going to be a great avenue for me to share the day to day happenings of my life.

I got engaged on Christmas Eve 2008 and I am currently planning a "WeddingMoon" to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. I need you to know that this means that I have officially launched my "super planner mode." While this degree of planning might seem stressful to others, it provides me with the utmost satisfaction. I take great comfort in the fact that I have left no stone unturned and nothing makes me more excited than when I can add some new figures to my wedding cost analysis spreadsheet-weird, I know. I can say at this point that I am almost there...We have decided on a fabulous resort DreamsPalmBeach that I am absolutely in love with and can't wait to get married there!

Well, that is it from me for now...hope that you have a great week!
