ode to jeff

So, back from lunch.Ate a healthy meal of chocolate milk an Italian sub and a rice kripsy treat. I was thinking about how marriage really changes relationships with your family. I've now been married for 11 months and two days to the best man in the whole world. Jeff is a testament to me that the lord does have a plan for everyone and if we do what we are suppose to do, then we will be blessed for it. I had always grown up being worried that I wasn't going to get married.For one reason or another, I couldn't fall head over heels for anyone. Jeff and I had only been dating approximately 2 weeks before I told him that I loved him( a real first for me). I could see myself growing old with him and handling whatever live threw at us together. He made me excited about having a family, about life and he has this very calming affect on me whenever I'm stressed about anything. In short, he is my better half:) I thought that he was crazy when we talked about marriage simply b/c I wondered why he would want to marry me?Why would he want to do all these things with me? I finally came to realize that I truly was the luckiest girl in the world and that he felt the same way about me. Crazy!! Our first year so far has been a definite rollercoaster. I've been stressed about things I've never had to worry about and we are still getting use to eachother, but I wouldn't trade it for anything:) I feel so much peace and contentment with him.

new job and.....stuff

So, new to all this, obviously b/c this is my first entry. A friend suggested I do this and my new job gives me plenty of time. I warn you though, you might want to turn back as I cannot promise this to be entertaining in any way. Little bit about myself, I was born and raised in Florida. I have one older sister and four younger siblings. We adopted 2 of my cousins and now love them like a brother and sister. My dad is hilarious and has a twisted sense of humor that he passed down to all of us kids. He once scared my first friend away by freaking her out with his shotgun saying he was going to hunt whatever was "hiding in the house", not cool dad. She wouldn't come over for a few days and her parents were pretty upset. My mom and I are ridiculously similar. We look the same,act the same and even have crazy voices for wild animals that make us look retarded:) My older sister... I use to hate. She never let me hang out with her and she was always trying to make me do chores. Later on, when she moved out, she became my best friend. I would have rather hung out with her then do anything else. My younger sister(Brittany) and I didn't really become good friends until my older sister(Megan) went to SVU. Our relationship previously consisted of hurting eachother and trying to scare the crap out out of eachother. She used to like Barney and one day I put him in her bed with a knife ducktaped to his hand..... then mom told me to stop after writing some creepy messages on a nearby board making it look like barney would maime her.... good times. So, we got really close and started doing everything together too. My younger brother Cody was a surprise. We weren't expecting another since us three girls were already a huge handful. He was a premature and all us girls loved holding him and taking care of him. Until he got older and became a miniature version of dad but twice as obnoxious. We adopted Andre and Amber a few years ago and had already felt like they were in our family waaay before then. Break time..... going to lunch, be back in a bit!
