The Best Year of my Life

A year ago today I married the most amazing man I've ever met. I am overwhelmed when I think of how blessed I am to have married a man like Jarrett. I am amazed every day at what a wonderful husband he is, and it seems to get better all of the time. The thing I love the most about him is that he has a love for God like I have never seen before. I am so thankful that my son will have such an amazing father.

We celebrated our anniversary yesterday because J was taking his youth to Holiday in the Park today. The day started with opening presents. He got me a robe with my initials on it and a makeup bag. I absolutely LOVED it and needed it, but never asked for it. And he got me the sweetest (and most funny) card and wrote the sweetest words on it. I cried, surprise, surprise! I got him a football signed by Jordan Shipley, the receiver for the Longhorns and a Longhorn t-shirt, and no card. He pretty much beat me in the gift department!!

Last night we had dinner together, followed by some sparkling grape juice and the top layer from our wedding cake. Yumm....nothing like year old cake!!! We had a great night just being together. We also watched our wedding video which was a lot of fun. I of course got emotional, but only because I am overwhelmed by the awesome marriage God has blessed us with. He has given me more in a husband than I could ever ask for.

Weight Comments

I experienced something today that I never understood until I became pregnant.  I always thought that pregnant women should not be offended by people talking about their weight.  My thought was always "you're pregnant, you're supposed to gain weight".

That all changed today.  I did teacher training on Smartboards all day long.  At the very end of the day one teacher asked me when I was due.  I told her April and she said "Wow you are going to gain a lot of weight".  And as soon as she left I started tearing up.  I never thought comments like this would bother me, but it did.  I really just could not believe how insensitive she was.  

Well, I'm glad I got that first "weight" comment out of the way!!  Now it is just makes me laugh.
