8 years of marriage (and a giveaway)

8 years ago on the 28th of December I married my soul mate. We were 20 years old and dumb. We sure have learned a lot in 8 years and we sure have grown up. We have moved well over 10 times (with another one to come) and have been through 3 year long deployments. We now have two beautiful children and a crazy dachshund and I wouldn't change a thing.

My amazing husband send me 24 long stemmed red roses. We weren't able to be together since right now we are living apart until we buy a house.

In honor of my anniversary and me just wanting to pay it forward I am giving away a $10 dollar Starbucks gift card. It's not much but it's enough to get you a couple of drinks!!

To enter:
You must be a follower of this blog through Google Friend Connect and you must comment and tell me what your favorite drink from Starbucks is.

For one additional entry you can tweet about the giveaway and comment here with a link to your tweet! That's it!

The winner will be drawn at random on Friday, January 4th.

Newtown, CT

Twenty families sent their kids to school on Friday. They made them breakfast, got them dressed, got them on the school bus or dropped them off at school. They gave kisses and promised that they would be right there to pick them up. They never got to. Twenty families of little boys and little girls forever changed. You don't send your child to school and think that you may never get to pick them up. It doesn't work like that. It shouldn't work like that. The world we live in today is a sad and scary one. As much as we want to protect our children from every single thing, we can't. I wish I could put my kids in a bubble and never let them out, but I can't. I can't promise tomorrow. I can only promise to love them today.

Twenty six families whose lives are forever changed. I can't even fathom the grief those parents feel. It's unimaginable. There are just no words for this horrible tragedy. My heart goes out to the family of the teachers and administrators who tried their best to save those children. They are true heroes. May they all rest in peace.

This evening I lit a candle for the 26 victims in Newtown. I am going to love on my kids and count my blessings and pray for a better, safe world. A world where we don't have to worry about our children being shot in school.

Inappropriate Elf on the Shelf

I think Elf on the shelf is more fun for the parents. At least for me it has been fun. I can't wait until night time so I can move our elf Stu.

My most favorite thing is not what I plan for Landon & Harper, but what I do for myself. Because the inappropriate Elf is hilarious.

With that I bring you... Charlie Sheen Elf... duh WINNING!

He's got the sports car, his goddesses, tiger blood, drugs, and he's WINNING at life people!

A little tiger blood with the goddesses.

And of course here are the ones I've done for the kids so far:

 Sick Stu

 Ninja Stu

Beach Bum Stu

I'm entering the first picture in Baby Rabies 2nd Annual Inappropriate Elf on The Shelf contest! Check it out here!
