I have been married to my highschool sweetheart for 14 years. We were blessed with the birth our daughter and son on February 15th 2008. They were born 12 weeks early, but came into this world as fighters. This is the story of us being the best Mom and Dad we know how to be and raising 2 amazing children.

1st week of my ME challenge - Updated
As stated in this post.. I was inspired by Dolli-Mama to challenge myself to some much needed ME time in 2011. The first thing that came to mind was I needed to make more time for my marriage. Todd and I spend very little time alone, since having the twins. I really miss that time. We were married for 11 years before we had Molly and Luke, so as little as 3 years ago we spent all our free time together. After we had the kids we both we just look at each other and say "What in the world did we do with all our extra time?" Oh we knew.....we went to dinners, movies, weekend car trips, shopping......you know everything that was so easy to do before kids. I have come to the conclusion that if we would not have had all those years together......maybe just maybe the last 3 years would not have been so good on our marriage. Meaning the lack of OUR time has been very few and far between, so a lot of marriages may not have survived. I feel in my heart that we love each other dearly & would do anything/&everything for each other! We will celebrate our 14th anniversary in 2 months. I am going to work on planning something very special. Please feel free to give me any ideas, maybe just maybe I could book a hotel for a night?!?!? Could I leave my kids for 24 hours? I don't know, but my marriage is worth the challenge.
For the first week of Amber's challenge Todd and I are going to dinner tonight! My Mom is picking up Molly and Luke at 3 this afternoon. I know they will have a ball too! I will give you all know the details later! Have a great weekend! I hope you all are thinking of your next ME pleasure! :-)
Update: Todd and I had sushi for dinner! It was really nice being just the 2 of us! We enjoyed talking with each without any distractions. Being able to enjoy a meal without worrying what Molly and Luke was doing is really nice. We then stopped at the store on the way home, so I could purchase 2 gossip magines! I haven't bought one of those in ages! I am really into this challenge...can't wait until my next date!
