5 Things I Look Forward To The Most About Being Married To Jason

Jason, I love you. I love every bit of you and one day I will devote a blog just to you in your wonderful goodness. But what do I look forward to the most about being married to you? ( Not being married. Being married TO YOU. )

1) You are my best bud and I look forward to sharing my life with you. You and I have so much fun together and I love just hanging out with you. I love that for the rest of my life I have my built in buddy that I get to do even the most mundane of chores with because we still have fun.

2) Seeing what our kid(s) will look like. I can't wait to see him or her and watch them grow up with you! You are such a great dad and I can't wait to have a child we made together and be apart of their lives together.

3) Having someone by my side every night when we go to bed and every morning when we wake up. That's so cool.

4) Spending holidays together. I have never experienced that before in any relationship and I am so happy that you are the one I get to experi…

5 Things I Will NOT Miss About Being Single

Single Jenna, life wasn't always fun. These are the 5 things I won't miss:

1) "Why hasn't he called?" "Where is this relationship going?" "Reagen/Kate/Leslie/Brooke, why doesn't he love me" NO MORE OF THOSE CALLS!

2) Christmas, alone. Thanksgiving, alone. Family pictures, alone.

3) Loneliness in general.

4) Wondering where my life is going and questioning if someone will be able to accept me in all my wonderful flawed-ness.

5) Calls to my parents, "WHERE IS HE? I am sad, I am depressed, I live too far away" And so on and so on.

These 5 so outway the last 5.

5 Things I Will Miss About Being Single

Ever since I got engaged, I have been so excited but yesterday, I started having this feeling of it sinking in. I think the older you are when you get engaged, and the longer you go in your life as a single adult, it becomes strange that your life is now about two people instead of just one. It sounds weird, but I almost feel like I am in mourning for my single life. I got so comfortable doing things on my own that at times, I kind of miss it. As soon as I became comfortable with being single and who I was as an independant woman, I found Jason, which is how it should be. Single Jenna deserves a second of mourning, I think. I worked hard to be her and I am proud of who I finally became. I am sure that no one would ever write this on their blog a week after getting engaged, and to some it may seem like I am not happy with my life and the changes going on in it. But please don't think that. I am very happy. My life is just going into a new phase and I wanted to stop for a second and…

It's really happening, oh my.

We started to look at venues today and it hit me that this is real and is actually happening. It's so strange when it happens to you. It's just something that I always thought was in the far distant future and it's been something I've thought about my whole life and now it is really happening. And it's so much more than I ever thought it would be!

I must say, there is alot about this wedding that I really haven't given a whole lot of thought to, and to be honest, I don't really care too much about. Whenever I have thought about my wedding (and those who know me can attest to this) I have cared about two things; who I am marrying and let's party! I always told myself that I was just going to elope and I think if Jason had it his way, he would say we should do that too. But now that it's here, I really want a day for us to celebrate our relationship. I still don't care a whole lot about the details, thankfully, I have a mother who is great at that…

Tae Kwon Do

Jordan started Tae Kwon Do this month! We are so excited that we get to watch him practice. He is so good at the movements and is very consise. Jason is just so proud when he watches him. Friday, they had "Parents Night Out" where you could take the kdis and drop them off for about 5 hours. Jordan watched a movie, played games, ate pizza, and came home just about as horse as possible. But he had a great time. Here are some pictures of him in action. Here are also some pictures of Sophia taking pics of herself while he was in class.

5 Things I Can't Live Without

I usually hate doing these things, but I thought, hey. Why not. So here goes, in no particular order:

1) God. Without faith in the Lord, I honestly do not know where I would be. To live in a world without God would be a world not worth it. How could you live everyday without the security of knowing that Jesus has your heart and future in His hands? Although I don't always walk the best walk, I always love God and remember Him.

2) Friends. The show, not the people in this scenario. I love love love my Friends. It's there always, whenever I am in the dumps, it's there when I need a laugh, it's there when I need some familiarity. I love this show. I could never go without having this. When I have had no cable, suffering through without entertainment, it was always there to save me and keep me laughing, no matter how bad I was feeling at the time.

3) Books. I could never live without books. I crave knowledge and willingly read as many books as I can. If I could go back i…

My Friend Kate

Oh, Kate. Katers. You are one in a million. There is absolutely NO ONE in the world like you are. You are one of the most quick witted people I have met in my life, full of smart comments and lovely quotes said in all the right places. I can always trust you to come with something fast and funny to say. There isn't anyone I know who can quote things like you can. I try to keep up, but it's simply impossible. ( Robyn gives you a run for your money, though! ) Just when I master "Friends" you are on to "Flight of the Concords." Always one step ahead. I have never known anyone with worse luck, seriously, you take the cake on that! Please bubble wrap yourself from this point forward, check the weather before you step outside, and be very cautious because you NEVER know what's going to happen to you from day to day! And yet still, somehow, you always come out stronger and better for it. You are probably one of the most fun friends I have ever had. Back in our…

Shopping, Cheesecakes, and Rings, Oh My!

I think Jason and I have known for a while that we were "meant to be." We had talked about getting married several times before, but how it was going to happen was going to be a complete surprise. I had never really thought about how I was going to be proposed to, I just knew that I wanted my family to be there and I wanted it to happen in a public place. Well, as of Monday evening, we are officially engaged! Jason really loves me and paid attention to what I wanted. I got to share this wonderful moment with all of the people I love, it was certainly a memory I will keep forever.

I had decided to take the day off and meet my sisters, aunt and mom for a day of shopping. Since we were all going to be away from home, Jason decided he would ask my dad and Brooke’s husband to play golf that day. It was an absolutely gorgeous day! We decided to go eat dinner at The Cheesecake Factory in Frisco. To my surprise, when we walked in, there was my dad, brother in law, and boyfriend. J…

October Weekend Fun

We had a great weekend last weekend! It was all about the kids, fall, and Halloween traditions. I went to the store on Friday and got a bunch of Halloween decorations for the kids. I also got these cute little flashlights which let you put a Halloween design at the end of it and you can shine it on the wall. There was a witch, a ghost and a jock-o-lantern. We turned off all the lights and took turns telling ghost stories using the symbols! We then played trick or treat in the dark. We thought the kids might be scared, but they loved it! On Saturday, we got up and found a cute pumpkin patch in Double Oak that was free and oh so awesome! We took alot of pictures there! There was great food, bounce houses, hay rides, pony rides, and tons of pumpkins! We came back, decorated the house and then carved our pumpkins. Then, we finished off the night with pancakes and hot chocolate! The kids had blue mouths all day from the blue snow cones, if you are wondering. I think holidays are so much mo…
