about today after work.
husband is always thinking of other people & doing nice things for other people...but naturally, i can forget sometimes... so, i think i'm going to start writing more stuff here. that way...maybe in the future, i/we can look back on these things...who knows?!
anyways, here's the scene.
we're walking inside from work. adam has hands (pretty much) full with puppy & some other stuff. it's icy. we have a neighbor whom is a little older walking towards us.
Adam: "hey, how's it going, tim?"
Tim: "good *insert talking about the weather or something*
Adam: "hey is that trash in your hand?"
Adam: "oh here, let me take & throw that away for you!"
adam goes & throws away his garbage. i was just getting something out of my car, but didn't really know what had taken place, so i asked if he was carrying his garbage...adam told me what had happened...
it's things like this that make me so thankful for the man i have. i mean, who does that? not many people is the answer...but sometimes...sometimes there are a few who step up & are just like that. and i'm thankful i got one of the few.
with a thankful heart to the One whom made thankful hearts,

so, a friend & i started saturday morning Bible study at a new coffee shop...fun, right?...this saturday is going to be a tidge different because one of our other friends is moving (AND having a baybay)... so, here's what i have planned...
they are coming to the ciiiitay that i live in & we're going to a little coffee shop (i'm getting a box of donuts before -- i've been craving). then, we're bringing our coffee & donuts home & we're going to surprise our friend with hair bow, hair piece, tutus making craft day (i'm going to have her look on pinterest/etsy for ideas)! i have SO much stuff in my craft room & i bought a bunch of hair clip things last night!
SO, be looking for a post soon of hair goodies we're making! :) who knows!? maybe i'll get an itch & want to sell them on my etsy!
this is me today... :) getting ready to go get donuts & coffee (BOGO coupon, wooh!)
it's not too often that i wear makeup (isn't makeup a crazy thing?!), so when i do, i take a picture... sill i know, but oh well! anyways, it's 15 minutes 'til these goofy gals are going to be here, so wish us luck that we make some of the coolest hairsies in the world! :)
PS! then we're going to this huge baby shower thing AND THEN i have this essential oils informational meeting thing i'm going to... busy day, busy day... oh why oh way do i wait to do my homework until night time/Sunday?! oh, jace...sorry, a whole nother random thought! :) i get to do that when i get home!

in honor of the blizzard in progress, i thought i'd share some pictures of a snow day adam & i shared about 6 years ago! it was perfect...my car couldn't get out & i couldn't have been happier to call work & tell them i wasn't coming in! i got to spend the best day having the most fun with this cat!
check out how high that is on his apartment door (way before we got married -- so weird to say 'his' apartment, now, haha)! he said he thinks it got 14 inches!
and of course the night before we had been out having a snowball fight! isn't this a cool pic we got?
happy snow day & happy throwback thursday!
...because husband melted it.
so, we had our 'Winter Party' for work a couple weeks ago... we sat & talked with a coworker/friend of mine...it was wonderful. i loved getting to talk & know her more...
well, today as i was heating up my leftover sausage & pepperoni noodle bake (haha), she was like, "So, Jacie...I was meaning to ask...I totally understand what Adam brings to your life with keeping you 'grounded' & stuff...and I was curious what all you bring to him?" woah...what a great question... i gave her my two cents, but told her i would definitely ask husband & report back to her promptly! :)
by the time i got home, i'd forgotten exactly what the question was (the above is a general guess, too), but i tried to formulate the best i could for husband... he said since he wasn't exactly sure if there was a more specific question or not, but here's the first thing he said:
him: this is quite general, but...you just make me a better person
him: just by being you
me: but how exactly
him: laughs (because i tend to ask the same questions over & over) and then... you make me a better person just by being you. i have never met anyone at all who makes me be better like you do
okay, so, he never told me how, but he says that once i talk to my friend & get a more specific question that she wants, he can elaborate...apparently there is just soooooooooo many things that i do to make him better that he can't think of them all...! :) just teasing, but seriously. isn't that great? made my heart jump a little & he was straight faced serious & sincere... i love that.
anyways, no matter how long you've been married, it's so always nice to hear these sweet things. they bring love, encouragement, sincerity, excitement to your heart & your relationship!
SO, run DON'T WALK, to your spouse & pay them a compliment or say something nice THAT YOU MEAN...make their heart smile at you & in turn yours will smile, too! :)
maybe, just maybe, one of you will understand what i'm saying...here's the setting...
you haven't shaved your legs in like a month, so you look like a werewolf. you finally get a wild hair & shave. so proud & excited of all the time & work you took getting those legs smooth as a baby's bottom, you run to husband to have him feel (taking a quick swipe to before he feels so you can be so proud, again, of your work)...then, that quick swipe you realize it's cold in the house & you have goosebumps & now you're body has started to push the hair back out & your all prickly.
so, you run to the tub/shower again & do another quick over...only to have the same thing happen twice...
no, this isn't a major frustration of mine, but man OH man! isn't your body a crazy (amazing) creation by God? i mean, after all, it's just trying to help & keep you warm! but come on! :)
anyways, just shaved my leggies & thought of this!
