A milestone in our marriage

there are certain events that I would qualify as a milestone in marriages.  The first year anniversary, first fight, first house, first child, etc.  

Well 2 nights ago we hit our a big one.  Nathan slept on the couch for the first time.  One would ask why in the heck I would tell the world that my husband slept on the couch.  That usually mean we had a big fight and I wouldn't let him sleep in our bed.  Well that's not the case.  

We had been watching TV and nathan started to fall asleep on the couch.  It was getting late so I suggested we go to bed and this is how our conversation went

N: I'm going to sleep on the couch.
I thought he was being funny
A: that's fine with me.
started to gather my things to go upstairs.
N: will you charge my phone for me please?
A: wait, are you serious about sleeping down here
N: Yeah, I said I was going to sleep down here
A: Oh, I thought you were joking, sure I'll charge your phone, don't you need an alarm.
N: Sure, you can set it for 7, and I'll wake up when you are getting ready.

We are so weird, so he really slept on the couch all night while I enjoyed the middle of our queen bed all night long, with a heating pad so I didn't freeze to death.  Ahhh, the joys of being married.

Joining the 17.5 million

People who drive to Seattle for work. That's right! After about a month and a half of being able to stay at home, I will be starting work on monday! I will be working for a company called EnerG2 to see their website go here. I couldn't be more happy or more exited about this opportunity. This just proves to me that heavenly father really knows what's best for us and by putting our faith in him he blesses us more than we could ever know!

I will be working in Fremont (just west of UW, north of downtown Seattle) and from what I have learned and seen, they are a great company!

Look for more posts to come soon as I start this new chapter. I appreciate all of the support and prayers. Nathan and I know they have made a difference. We are so blessed to have such amazing friends and family!

Cute Puppy!

My sister and husband are in Vegas and we are very jealous. Nathan talks all the time about wanting to go back. So while they are gone my family and me are taking care of their cute little (not really little) Great Dane puppy. He's name is Zeus and I am in love with him. He has been my little pal for the past 2 days. So let me tell you a few fun things we have done.

Look at those ribs! You would think he was starving, but he eats a lot! ( And he is the size of a small boxer at about 2 months old, crazy!!)
-Zeus has been sleeping in our bed with us and for some reason likes to be closer to Nathan which bugs the heck out of me, and him.
Playing with a water bottle with rice in it, like a toy he had at home.
-Around 5:30 when he thinks it a good time to start playing, I move down with him to the couch so nathan can sleep a little more before going to work. This morning we stayed on the couch til about 9. He was sleeping in the crook of my legs with his head on my hip. I about died it was so cute. I had started to fall asleep again, but was woken up from a really weird sound. Zeus was barking a weird little bark in his sleep and him whole little body was twitching. He was going to catch whatever he was chasing!
How could you not love this face and HUGE ears?!
-Yesterday I took him for a walk down a semi-busy street to get to a fun little park. It took us twice as long to get there because did you know how scary trucks and buses are?!! He had to stop, run away from the street, sit and watch them go by. So funny!
first try to have him sit for a picture
- Right by our town house is a little forest area. I took him on a little walk without the leash. He was in heaven! He would run down the little path, then wait for me to catch up to him, wait for me to pet him, the run off again.
Him attacking me while trying to take a picture.
Thanks for coming and playing with me Zeus! Hope you can come back soon and play!
