Doorbell Drop-offs.

I'm always trying to find ways to spice up the goodies I make for others when I drop them off at the door.  I have gotten tired of taping a piece of paper to the plate saying a simple little phrase.  So I think I have found a simple, WAY affordable way to get the message across.  Yea or Nay?

And, of course, you can write whatever you would like on your little flags!  I tried stabbing the toothpick through the paper to make sure it stuck together, but it looked pretty cheap; it seems that wrapping the paper around the toothpick worked best.

We believe in....

You've seen the fun side of our lives... but what do we really believe in?  This website has got it all.  I don't know what I would do without Christ in my life.

Everyone can take a good picture of a sunset, so this post isn't to show everyone how "great" of a photographer I think I am... just a post to recognize how beautiful our world is.  While walking along an art market in San Clemente, I came across a picture of a sunset.  I asked the man at the stand about the picture.  He said it was created by a photographer who took a picture of the sunset every single evening for a whole year- then placed these photos into a collage of a giant sunset.  I absolutely loved it!  And although I may not be in the place that I would love to be to take on this challenge, it doesn't mean I can't start practicing... right? So, here we are!  Admiring some of God's wonderful creations... just for us.

In case you were wondering why I took a picture of the cacti, it's a heart!  How sweet (: And if you look at the picture of the ocean real close, there's a dolphin.  These small things made this beautiful sunset even more enjoyable!

I couldn't NOT take a picture of this dog... something was eerie, yet funny about him/her.  And, of course, I had to get a picture of the surfers.  I hope to one day pick up surfing again.  But for now, I shall stick to school! haha

This sunset is the same one, taken later back at home!

Happy Valentines Day to all!  Or S.A.D... I always chuckle at how ironic that acronym is, and for those who are unaware for what it stands for, it is Singles Awareness Day.  I must admit- I used to despise the day, I thought that it was silly to have a day for couples to tell each other how they felt about the other.  Shouldn't we be doing that every day?  Now I look at it as an opportunity for those who do not often express themselves to tell the other how they really feel.  This doesn't just have to be words, but through actions as well.  I've never been too much into the lovey dovey aspect of a relationship.  Of course it is important every so often, but I'm just more of a playful, fun lovin' type of person.  Poor husband, he is more romantic than me!  But I think that's what we need, to complement each other.

Now for our own Valentines Day, we didn't do anything too big this year because our 6 month anniversary is only a few days off and I'm expecting him to go BIG or go home on this one!  Just kidding... but I'd rather celebrate both than only on Valentine's Day!

As for our Day-
Josh made me breakfast in bed!  My favorite... french toast (: and sausage!

So, obviously I'm tired. haha but I bet Josh is even more tired because he woke up at 7 to make this!  That's early for us because we're more night owls than early birds. Along with breakfast in bed I got a card with a CAT on it- he knows me so dang well!

Along with an amazing card (all I needed) Josh got me exercise pants!  And I know this doesn't sound like such a big deal... but it is! You can only wear a certain type of pant in the gym at school and apparently all of mine were inappropriate- whoops!  So for Josh to go online and find a pant that makes me look FANTASTIC, props.  He made me one very happy girl (:

Now.  Time for my surprise for him!  HEART ATTACK TIME!

Luckily, because of my super impressive job as an assistant for an art teacher, I scored on a bunch of paper!  This way, I could spend the money towards something that Josh would really enjoy- CANDY!!! We all know men would just rather have food, right? I also got him ice packs for his shin splints and special bubbly water.  Just trying to be original.  So all in all, Valentines Day=nice and affordable for the both of us!

Oh, and in case you couldn't tell what's written on the hearts, it's everything I love about him!
