Sunday Samplings--Worst dates ever!

I'm sure everyone has had one of those dates that you just never happened! My worst date would have to be Junior Prom back in the day.

I didn't have a date with just a couple of weeks left and there I am in Physics class blabbing about that to some of my friends. Well, the guy I sat next to heard...not a guy I particularly like at all. We fought all the time on everything. I guess that was something he happened to the next thing I know he was asking me to go. He was kind of a "skater" dude. So a lot of his friends weren't planning on going to prom so he suggested we go in my friends' group...

It was just a really strange night. He really liked me, didn't know how to tell me other than hold my hand, say strange things, not talk to me at the dance then not dance, then dance, then declare his love to me at the end of the night. Plus, it didn't help that our wonderful prom committee chose an army base for our magical night of the dance, it was way too small for all of us, not the best atmosphere for sure...I really cried my eyes out when I got home door. It was quite the learning experience in the fun teen years! Well, he got over me pretty fast...and we never ended up friends. Kind of sad, but weird!

Any scary dates that aren't too scary you'd like to share?

Sunday Outing!

It was a really nice day yesterday so we decided to grill up some hamburgers and head outside for a picnic on a blanket with the Gabester! Archie created some delicious burgers and we had a nice time playing and talking! We found that Gabe is not a big fan of the prickly grass and so would only stay on the blanket...though, we did get him to at least pick a few blades of grass and then return them to their proper places! Very cute! We are all very excited for warmer weather and thus more opportunities for outside play.

Happy Birthday, Honey!

It is my sweet and devoted husband's birthday today!!!! I will spare the details on how old he is!!!!

Thank you for being a wonderful husband who supports me in all my times of need. Thank you for being my best friend, the person I can turn to when adversity strikes (as it always does). Thank you for being a wonderful father that changes poopy diapers, gets up with our son in the night and takes a couple of days off work to watch Gabe while I recover from walking pneumonia. Thank you for always believing in me even when I have a hard time believing in myself and encouraging me to go forward, to look past the negative and see the good things in life.

I love you,
We love you,

your wife and son Heather and Gabe

Gabe Loves Tissues!

Nothing too new to report. I'm finally getting over my walking pneumonia and slowly my sinus infection and Gabe is over his ear infections! I hope! So I haven't weighed myself in a few weeks...I've been too sick to exercise much and too tired to worry about I'm thinking next week I'll start back up on that and see how I've done the last month with being sick and all! Yikes!

So here's some more Gabe pics to enjoy! He loves to pull apart the tissues and shred them and eat them! He's getting pretty close to walking, probably only a few months away now! He's a joy and a great baby! We love him so much!

Sunday Samplings- Canary Islands

Just wanted to share one experience while I was there...

We kind of stick out like a sore thumb as dresses and backpacks. So we were bound to get some interesting catcalls and such from some of the locals...

My companion and I were just walking down the street not trying to mind our own business (we're trying to share our gospel message), but minding our own business when it came to snotty teenage boys. We were assaulted with tennis balls! Thwack, right on my bum, thwack, on my head. I mean, what do you do in that situation? I'm in a foreign country, a woman, learning a new's not like I can go swear at them in their own language, it would've been fun to do in English since they'd have no idea what I was saying. But then I'm representing my church and gotta turn the other cheek.

So we just ended up ignoring them and hoped we didn't embarrass ourselves too much. Little punks!
