Bigfoot in Spotsylvania, VA?!

According to this article from Fredericksburg.com (we used to live in Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania when we were in Virginia for two years), many have claimed they saw Bigfoot in the Lake Anna region.

When Shane "heard about it on Elliott in the Morning" and sent the article to me, I really thought it was a prank he was pulling on me.

And I mean . . . really?! Does Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti, exist?! I won't lie . . it does kinda freak me out when I read these stories. And maybe I'm just as crazy as the people who said they saw it, but you just never know! I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. Or maybe I just think it would make life that much more exciting if something like this really did exist.

My favorite part from the article:

But not finding any evidence has little effect on their hope that someday one of them might get the evidence needed to prove Bigfoot does exist.

"There's no certification for this except a mental institution and an empty checkbook," Willard joked.

Good luck to all you guys from Spotsy! Watch out for Bigfoot! :-P


Happy 2nd Anniversary Dan & Marissa!

taken on our 2010 trip to Germany in front of the Neuschwanstein Castle
(where Dan proposed to Marissa in 2007)

Happy 2nd Anniversary to one of the cutest couples! You can just tell when you watch you guys how much love you have for each other! I wish you nothing but the best on your anniversary and in all the years to come!

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
-- Judy Garland

An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.

We miss you and love you so much!

p.s. - hope you celebrate with some Currant Champagne and Dark Chocolate! ;-)


My Babies!

Can't believe our babies will be three years old.
I love that they still love each other after all these years!

I'm So Excited!!

And I just can't hide it . . . so I'm going to tell you all about it!! (but not really cause some of it is a secret) . . .
  • Mase's TOP SECRET bachelorette party is this weekend!! KINDA freaking out about this. Should be good.
  • My kitties turn 3 this weekend (holy cow time flies!)!! Makes me want to go out and get them each a kitty for their birthday!
  • Shaney's finally coming home from a 4 day work trip that was 4 days too long! I really missed him.
  • Excited that (I think) we finally came to a conclusion on our house . . . we were going to completely redo the entire downstairs layout, but I think we will just drywall some things and wait a couple years to see if we really like where we are and then maybe do an addition upstairs. We are getting our septic redone this summer, and I just want to enjoy what we have right now.
  • Excited for one of my BFFs, who just bought her own house! Can't wait to go see it and help her out with it!
  • My sister-in-law and brother-in-law also got a new house! They are amazing at decorating and making homes look awesome, so I'm excited to see what they do with it!


Electric Bill!

Just wanted to share the joy of the news we received via email when we were in Germany . . .

Our electric bill dropped by more than 60%!!!! :-)

I think it was because we replaced our hot water tank and fixed our well leak!


p.s. - not very happy with the lady at Penelec who said our bill was a "normal household" bill before! ppsssh!


7 Years!

7 years ago today Shaney and I officially began our relationship together (and only met shortly before that). Ever since then we've pretty much lived together too. Either at his dorm, my parents house, his parents house, and then eventually our own apartment and houses.
I really can't believe it's been 7 years already! Time flies when you're having fun!To think that Shaney's been able to put up with me for that long! THAT is impressive!

But seriously Shane, God truly blessed me when he put you in my life 7 years ago, and every day since then I just feel even more lucky and blessed to have you. You are everything to me. You are my "Rock". And I love you more than you will ever know.


We're Back!

Well, we did end up going to Germany (YAY!), and we did end up getting back safe too (praise the Lord!)!

Here are some sneak peaks for you. These are all pictures from my mother-in-law! I still haven't gone through all 1,000+ of mine yet . . .

These are not my beers, although while in Germany, I did find that I kinda liked Dark Radlers (half beer/half lemonade or sprite)!

Shaney and I at Linderhof Palace with the Alps in the background! It was sooooooo beautiful there!

I will try to get my pics on here sometime this week! We just finished unpacking yesterday night and we have a pile of laundry that would reach the top of the Alps!
