Eliot

This is a video that my friend had on her blog which was recently shown on Oprah. Just be prepared to cry hard. I watched it for the first time before going to bed and i sat there and wept. Chris came in and wondered what the heck was wrong with his sobbing pregnant wife! This really hit me hard. I spent an hour in bed praying for the parents of Eliot. It is amazing to see how they glorified the Lord through their extreme loss. There is nothing greater in this life then to live for Christ. And they are living proof of a life sold out to the Lord. What an encouragement. By the way...Eliot's parents said on Oprah that they are due in 2 weeks!

Rock and Roll

Hyatt Place Hotel!


The best italian food ever! all homemade every day!


Rock and Roll Hall of Fame



Chris' 30th birthday was in August and i wanted to surprise him with a big trip. Well in my dream world that is :) With a ministry salary, their isn't much room for that! So for about 5 months or so prior i saved extra money that i made doing little jobs here and there. So i was able to have enough to have a little getaway to Cleveland, OH. We both have never been. So i planned our little trip :) A few weeks ago we left right after church for Cleveland. My Mom watched Noah over night and our friends Matt and Kristin watched him the next day. We drove the 2 1/2 to 3 hours to get there and checked into our beautiful hotel. Chris and i have a thing for staying in nice hotels! But...we always find the best deals, so its like we are staying at a holiday inn express but not. We always take pictures of our rooms! yes, call us nerds! This hotel is budget friendly yet very modern. It is call Hyatt Place. Look it up! Stay there! 42 inch plasma is every room! come on!! Then we went to a movie- Eagle Eye. So good! Then dinner and back to the hotel. The next day we woke up and had free breakfast. Then went to wonderful Maggianos for lunch. We research and make sure if we are on a trip..Maggianos is included, if it is there. We have been to 5 different locations around the US :) Chris has been to 6. After an amazing amazing lunch we headed to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! It was a lot of fun! I was a bit tired by the end due to the pregnancy :) I wanted Chris to feel so special and loved even though i couldn't whisk him away to St. Thomas! And he did. So that makes me happy ;)

Fridays!



Friday is my favorite day of the week! Chris is off and it is our family day! We try and think of fun, creative, and inexpensive things to do. This particular Friday we went to the Columbus Metropolitan Library downtown. Isn't it beautiful?? Noah loved it! They had a huge kids section with all kinds of fun things to do! Noah was loving playing a computer game with the head phones on. One of our favorites is going to the zoo and Chick-fil-a. They go hand in hand. If you have any fun ideas, send them our way! we always love doing new things!
