Finally Organized!

So this weekend Blaine's parents came down from nebraska to visit us and to help us finish unpacking and organizing... yes it took us that long! But it is finally done! I am so thankful to have such great in-laws who are so generous and willing to help every chance they get. It was a lot of work but we got everything done and I love not having to think about what we still need to do everynight! Of course while they were here we took them to a redhawks baseball game and of course they were playing the Omaha royals (it worked out nicely) and we all had a blast! It was a great weekend even if there was a lot of work to be done! Now just for a few more decorating things! Oh and we finally picked all the wedding pictures were ordering and putting in our book and what have you so we can put in our order and get all our pictures! I'm so excited! I'll put some up as soon as we get them I promise! I love the way life is going right now we've been so richly blessed and I am so thankful!

Here are some pictures of our nicely organized apt for those of you who are curious.

God's Plan

Ok so I had a minor freak out while in Target grocery shopping this evening. It was nothing really probably mostly PMS but I just got nervous. I've been so used to taking care of everything for myself since i was 18.. even before that really and here since the wedding blaine has been taking care of everything involving fiances and not that thats a bad thing really its great and he's really good at it but because i'm in control I worry and I stress so i got a little overwhelmed while we attempted to shop with targets ridiculous prices (NEVER AGAIN). But anyways through this little freak out i realized that my plans dont matter... We've made a ton of future plans and alot of them rely on how much money we can save in the next few years and i realized that we should count the blessings we have and stop making so many plans cause God's plan is the one that really matters no matter what plans we make. I give it to him his plan is perfect for me and I am excited to see what it is... I may have to remind myself of that daily but I know it is true.

Father's day thought

Today has been wonderful so far... got up early and did some shopping with Blaine and then we started the preparations for having my family over for Father's Day lunch. It was special to finally be able to have them all over here and treat my dad and my brother to show them how special they are and how great dad's they are. My adorable nephew was hilarious as usual and wanted to play so bad with baby Bella but he was just a little to rough for our little girl.
But before we had lunch we went to church with Joseph and Michelle and it was an awesome worship service. Trent (our worship leader) has such a fire for Christ and it absolutely just shines constantly especially when he's on that stage. One song in particular I think fits this father's day very well.

Nothing can separate
Even if I ran away
Your love never fails

I know I still make mistakes
But You have new mercies for me everyday
Your love never fails

You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning

And when the oceans rage
I don't have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
Your love never fails

Verse 2:
The wind is strong and the water's deep
But I'm not alone in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails

The chasm is far too wide
I never thought I'd reach the other side
But Your love never fails

You make all things work together for my good

It was such a nice reminder that no matter what happens to us throughout our days we have a father that is amazing and who will never leave us. His love never fails no matter what it is we do and no matter how far we try to run he is there waiting with open arms to welcome us back and give us all the love and forgiveness he has to offer. It is a great reminder for me right now with all the changes we have had happened in the recent months it is a nice reminder that all these blessings came from our Lord and that no matter how bad our days are there is a lord who loves us. There is no need to have fear of the future because God has it in his hands and he will bless us beyond measure as long as we put our faith in him. I am so uplifted today with these thoughts and hope that maybe this can encourage someone else as well.

Happy Fathers Day

Life is ever changing

Today was a nice relaxing day. Got to have breakfast with some of my best girl friends and then took Bella to the vet to start her shots and make sure she is healthy after all that she's been through. She has some worms and another kidn of parasite that is super common and easy to treat so we'll give her meds for a couple days and she'll be good to go. Other then that te vet said she was in good shape and very lucky. But throughout all the good things that happened today I couldn't help but think about how different life is now and how different its going to continue to get in the months and years to come. For so long my life was the same... work, school, family, friends, and relationships. That was it it was constant and had been that way for years... of course little changes occured like the change between highschool and college and the change in relationships especially once Blaine and I met but for the most part it was the same. But now in the last few months my life has literally completely changed. I graduated college, got a great job, got married, moved, adopted a kitty. Now i have to schedule friend time... make it a point to visit my family at least once a week and call Blaine's as often as possible. we're thinking about vacations and family visits, thinking to the future of buying a house and having children.... the next few years is going to be a constant change i have a feeling and as excited as I am there is a small part of me that can't help but be terrified. I am so blessed with a wonderful life and fantastic husband and I thank god for that everyday but the future and the unknown will always be scary to me.

this was probably just a lot of rambling but it wasnice to just kinda point the thought on paper. Sort of

First Post and New addition

So I've never done a blog before but I thought it would be fun with all the changes in our lives right now so i created this blog about Blaine and I and our new little family. We are loving life as a married couple and enjoying every moment we have together. Yesterday we adopted a adorable baby Kitten that we name Bella. My dad's friend rescued her from the flood that took place here in Oklahoma on monday and my dad knew that we were wanting to get a cat so we got lucky and go to take our little Bella home. She is adorable and absolutely just precious and perfect for us. We've had so much fun with her so far and are very excited for the weekend to just hang out with eachother and enjoy our new family of three!
