Mondays can be good!!!

It's true Monday's can be good!
My Moma came to my office door saying " This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it." and she brought me these!
This is my office! It's as it is, usually messy. But look at those flowers. They make everything better!
She's soo cool!
Then Zaxby's opened in town and we got to eat my FAV food for supper! It was soo yummy!
Then the BEST thing of the day happened...

My MIL brought us an early Christmas present (yes, I know it's August, but she starts shopping early).

any guesses?

well, it wasn't just this cheap dish detergent... Wait, why would I (poor, dishwasherless lady) need dish detergent.... yep, you guessed it! I now (after a year) am the proud owner of a DISHWASHER! YIPPY! I couldn't stop hugging her and jumping up and down at the same time! HAHA! It was a great Monday, indeed!

Makes me want to cook...

There is something wonderful about leaving the movie theater inspired! Sometimes I like the way a movie leaves me feeling of suspense, I always love leaving more in love, and every now and then leaving scared. But the BEST feeling is being left with the feeling of inspiration. Wanting to do something/be something! Having the urgency to MOVE ....not locations necessarily, but to be pushed into something by excitement! That is my friends, what Julie/Julia left me wanting to do. It was fabulous and I'm so excited my Man took me tonight for a date out on the town! You should see it to!
Amy Adams and especially Meryl Streep was fantastic! It was of course different than the book! Yes, I read the book. It was a good book, if you could get past all the language. It left you with the same feelings as the movies, but cluttered with negative words. That is why I think the movie was even better (which rarely happens). So I recommend the movie definitely, but only cautiously recommend the book!

Homemade Love...

That's what homemade ice cream equals to me! I had my stinkin' gallbladder out about a week ago. It finally had to go because it was making such a fuss all the time. And can I tell you how much I'm loving my new life (or my old life...I'm starting to feel back to my old self.).

Anyways...back to the homemade LoVe! My parents are the BEST nurses around (except for my husband...and sister of course). So they decided to make homemade ice cream a few days after my surgery. It was the sweetest medicine I've ever had. Here are a few pics of the celebration...Happy NO Gallbladder!
one of the sweetness Daddy!
I'm a simple kind of girl...just berries please!
It was good.
This good.
she thought it was good.

scruffs enjoyed all Em's hyped up sweetness!

Why I love Orchards...

I love visiting orchards for many reasons, but one of them is the colors! Summer to me is always FULL of color and orchards hold soo many of them. EnJOY!

It's raining babies....

So we had a SHOWER! Seriously, there are so many of my friends and family members that have budding bellies right now. Hannah's sweet boy is due in October and we decided to brunch her into mommyhood!

Here are a few pictures of all the fun!

Rachel and I had soo much fun planning and decorating together! i love having fun friends to do creative, crafty things with.

And here is the mommy-to-be! Rach and I decided she is seriously a preggers model!

Have you heard about {in}courage? I'm super excited about it! There are soo many things that encouarge me, but mostly it would be the joy I find in my hope of Christ!

"Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation, And sustain me with a willing spirit." Psalm 51:12

But practically speaking, God uses everyday things to bring me JOY through Him. When I'm spending time with others who love Jesus, when I'm in the quiet of my own house with no obligations, when I'm enjoying creating something (with friends especially), taking in God's creation outside, and many many more things.

Hope you guys find this site as exciting and {in}couraging as I am!!!

p.s. I can't wait to upload these pics to show you how great the baby shower that i through with a friend went this weekend. later (maybe tonight).

lovey dovey > PERFECTION

Wow, it's amazing how much ONE year can hold and how quickly it flies by. Getting away for the weekend was the best way ever to review all God has done this past year! We had lots of relaxation, quiet conversations, and fun memories.
sweethearts <3
just us
happily ever after

I now pronounce you....

Husband and Wife
What? Did I really hear myself say the words"I, Sarah Elizabeth Caraway take you...."?
Did this really happen a year ago on August 2nd, 2008?

You bet your booty it did! All my dreams came true when a gorgeous, tall man got down on his knees to ask me one little question? "Will you be my wife?"
Obviously, I said yes! And we lived happily ever after!

A quote to sum up how I felt/feel about this day (and generally how I feel for the The Man):
Occasionaly in life there are moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. There meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart." ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

* This quote has been with me for many many years and has described several moments through my life, but not nearly as perfect as in describing the moment in which I became Mrs. Thompson!
A picture of our entire wedding picture!
Seriously, this all seems like a dream!
It was the most perfect, romantic, and magical day!

We made it home from our little getaway (i'll post pictures soon). I'm a little bummed to come home to real life. This weekend felt a little like our honeymoon where we mainly loafed around and just enjoyed hanging out together with no obligations/stress in the way.
It was nice to think over this past year and all God blessed us with.

I love my Man!
Happy 1st Anniversary and to at least 99 more to come!
