So Thursdays are also super fun because there are two great link-ups to join in!!

Over at Goodnight Moon's Page you can link up your favorite song from the week and then go and check out other blogs to see what's going on in their worlds (and get exposed to some cool new jams!) My song for this week is:

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

Also, for some more fun, head on over to Flip Flops and Combat Boots to link up with the Thursday Five!!! This week's five are five things that have been...


It was GREAT to go home this past week. I really needed to see my family and get out of my house for a little while. Even though the trip is over, it was really refreshing and I loved it. There's nothing like a hug from mom (even though we hate each other sometimes).

INCREDIBLE doesn't even begin to describe the amazement and awe of God that I felt when I realized that my grandfather (who I love more than life itself) overcame TWO massive heart attacks this past week. The minute I saw him when I got home, I cried. Nothing compares to getting that extra hug that you almost never got. 

I was INSPIRED this week by two friends of BE's and mine who are beginning the process of adoption (and are actively trying to find a birth mother looking to find a family) despite the fact that they are in the military. Their strength and perseverance and faith that the right person will come into their lives and give them a child to love is really like no other. Please visit their site at!!

Knowing that I am finally finished with college is REWARDING, especially since I am the first girl in my family to finish college and get a degree. I worked my butt off for that B.S.N after my name, and I'm so proud of it. 

BE and I will be on a cruise next month, and that is going to be SWELL!! Our honeymoon was kind of a bust, since bad weather prevented our ship from docking in the ports, and we ended up just sailing around on the waves and 66 mph winds of the Caribbean for five days. I'm so glad that we are getting this opportunity to go again before he begins the next leg of training. After him being gone more than 4 months of our 6 months of marriage, we need some alone time together!!!!!!  

Hope you go link up!!!!!
