Money

Yesterday was a great day! A great day for a few reasons. First, Nate and I saw Fireproof at church last night. I just can't get enough of that movie! It is so good and I feel like it sets me and Nate on the right path! Makes us refocus after a long week! Second, not only did I get paid but we got our tax refund direct deposited. Now I know that the love of money is the root of all evil, and people say that money doesn't buy you happiness but I'm here to tell you that it sure does help! On Friday morning I was really bumming out because I was thinking that we were going to have another low budget Valentines Day and it got me mad. I am so frustrated with having low budget holidays and I was having a pity party! I thought that we were going to get paid on Monday but instead our paychecks came on Friday. Hallelujah, Praise God, Thank you Jesus (thank you Toya!). I am so happy that we get to have a fun and enjoyable Valentines Day. I am so ready for this day and I know it's going to be a memorable one! We're going to Chuck E Cheese and then we're getting our new 46"LCD TV!!! One small thing that I do want to mention that I'm excited about is that Nate and I are finally going to get to wear our wedding rings again! Nate's ring is a bit too small and my dad had to use pliers to get it off in the summer last year. He's been without for all this time and I think he's due for another ring...at least a bigger one! As for me, I am trying hard to get rid of this baby "fluff" but it is so tough. Because I am proud of my trips to the gym I'm rewarding myself with a slight extension of my wedding ring! I can always get it adjusted if I lose the 50 lbs that I need to! I just think it's important to get our rings adjusted so we can always have that reminder plus I really miss my ring...it's so stinking beautiful! So to the people that say that money doesn't buy you happiness...for today you can stick it because we're having fun! Hope you all have a fun Valentines Day!

I love that you call it baby "fluff"! That's great. I had to take my rings off when I was about 20 weeks pregnant with Sophie because I swelled so much. I had my rings adjusted last summer because my ring size went up a whole size after having Sophie, and that was even after I had lost all the baby weight! This time the "fluff" is hanging on, but thankfully my ring still fits. It was a lot easier having a baby in early summer because it was nice out and I could walk more. No more winter babies for me, thank you! Hope you had a great Valentine's Day!
