After I got over that hurdle I was off and the finished project was a success. I filled it with rice (pour some good smelling oil on the rice) throw it in the microwave for 90 seconds and you have a great heating pad!

I am SOOO kidding! As you continue reading you will understand. Last Christmas Hugh bought me a sewing machine and it wasn't until this LAST weekend that I did anything with it. I wanted one so I could make crafty things for the home! Hugh's mom showed me some of the basics when she was here and I was off! My starter project was a heating pad. After my first stitch (shown below) the thread came out. It took me (and Hugh) 45 minutes to figure out i was turning the hand wheel the wrong way to get it threaded correctly! Now should we talk about this stitch? Yeah, let's not....

It was a great weekend to reflect on ALL the things to be thankful for. God has given me so much! This year has been an abundance of blessing and I am so grateful!

He planned our weekend away in Richmond which is a little over two hours. We left Friday afternoon and got there around 4:00. We got checked into our hotel, went to dinner and then a movie. On Saturday, we went shopping and Maggiano's for dinner! There was even a Hobby Lobby which I got SO EXCITED about. That was a learning experience as Hugh and I came to the full realization that we have different tastes! :)
Saturday night we had a night at home and continued watching LOST. We started this on our honeymoon and just finished season 4. We have settled on a church Heritage Baptist and decided on a sunday school. This is exciting as Hugh and I are starting to make church friends! :) We invited our leaders over next Sunday after church for lunch, It was such a fun weekend and I was reminded time and time again what a blessing marriage is and what a bigger blessing HUGH is!
The same day we got back I got the flu! Horrible flu! Can I just tell you how thankful I was to be married and having the flu?! I remembered the previous year getting the flu, I was all alone, so sick and just laying on the couch crying! I remember praying and asking the Lord to bring me a husband who would be by my side in these times. A year later...here I was laying on the couch SICK, and my husband was laying next to me, hugging me and reading the bible to me to encourage me. FOR REAL....doesn't get much better than that! I started crying and told Hugh about my prayer the year before and how thankful I was that he was there with me. Truly a blessing.
When I went back to work two days later I talked to my boss and he asked me to stay on staff and try working remotely. I would fly back and forth as needed and the next week was finalizing those plans. God has been so good in this process. Not only were we quickly moving across the Country but I got to keep my job with TMC which I TRULY LOVE! Blessing after blessing.

The best part was just being away with the person I get to spend my life with. We laughed a lot and just ENJOYED being together and not having to say goodbye! I'm married to my BFF!!!! Love it!

Hugh and I got married at 7:00 pm in our friend's backyard. It was so special. Our wedding party walked down to "Great is they Faithfulness" by Cece Winans and I walked down to "You and I" by Steve Wonder (sung by Michael Buble').
And I couldn't forget the cutest kids EVER....my neices and nephews!
