alltel commercial where they go to the wizard's house during dinner? Sean loves that one! The guy with the 'phro says, "What the?" That cracks Sean up and now he says it all the time. So it seemed to fit.
Sean wears ear plugs at night and this is what Piersen decided to do with them. I swear if this kid went to school, he'd be the class clown in no time at all. He can't get through dinner without acting up and trying to get a laugh out of us. He loves the attention!

This photo was taken about five minutes after Sean proposed. I was so happy I thought I would burst. Today we are celebrating five years together. I guess you could say our courtship was a whirlwind of sorts. We went on our first date on May 14, 2003. He asked me to marry him on June 30th, and we were married on August 23rd. A little over three months wouldn't be long enough for most people, but we just knew. The first time we talked about marriage was on our first date!
I clearly remember the first time we mentioned love. We had been seeing each other a little over a week, and we were snuggling on the bed. He put his hand on my face and said "I love you" very softly. I just looked at him for a few seconds, and then he asked, "What do you think about that?" And I replied, "I don't know how, but I love you too." I still remeber our words exactly. It seemed incredible, even to me, that I could be in love with him so quickly, but I knew, without a doubt, that I was.
And that's how it has always been for me. Without a doubt. I answered yes without a doubt. I said I do without a doubt. I go to bed every night and wake up every morning without a doubt. I know that God made Sean just for me. And I am grateful every day. I love Sean more than I could ever express in words to him. But I think he knows. Because I think he loves me just as much. It feels so good to be loved so completely. I am truly blessed.

Next up is the living room window. Once again, I used $1/yard fabric from Wal-mart. I know, right? You can't see well in the pics, but it's the cutest little miniature brown-on-brown houndstooth. I just folded, folded and clipped.....completely a la Nester. It turned out so cute. I also mistreated the bookcases in front of the window, I used upholstery tacks and just tacked some leftover brown fabric fom the back door right to the top edge of the cases. It hides all of our school books and doo-dads and looks like a pretty little table in front of the window where I can put cutesy stuff.
