Driving home yesterday......

Yesterday I'm driving home from work (on the 710 freeway) It was drizzling outside and all of a sudden the freeway came to a stop. I pressed the breaks as quickly as possible but something about the breaks felt off. Or maybe I'm just a paranoid freak about driving (which surely could be the case) and thought the breaks felt like they did not stop fast enough. Anyhow i immediately called Josh to tell him something did not feel right about the breaks and he said not to worry drive safe and he would look at them when he got home. After i hung up the phone i couldn't help but think about my Dad......
I use to call my Dad about everything when i lived at home with him. If it was a rainy morning my Dad would always make sure to come in my room and tell me "drive the surface streets to work, the freeways are dangerous when it rains" and i would listen to him every time and drive surface streets every time. I would call him whenever i had car troubles, whenever my feelings got hurt, whenever i got a raise, bonus or promotion at work.... i would call him for EVERYTHING! No matter who i was dating or who i was with at the time i trusted NO ONE'S advice or words i only trusted my Dad. When Josh and I first got together and were living with my Dad, i found myself still calling or going to my Dad when i needed advice or help with something. I had never really opened up to a guy before in a way where i trusted him to be able to take care of me. When Josh asked my Dad's permission to Marry me, i knew i was in good hands. I was already head over heels in love and with my Dad's approval i knew this was the man who was gonna take care of me for the rest of my life!! My Dad does not just approve ANYONE (we are a lot a like in that way) and i knew everything i was feeling for Josh was so absolutely right and my dad knew i had finally found the ONE....
To sum up my story, yesterday when driving home i thought about how i call Josh for everything now! I no longer call my dad, i call Josh! It's all apart of growing up, i know. But, I wonder if my Dad misses my calls, or if he is happy i finally found someone who can take care of me just as he always did, i wonder what it feels like to be a dad and watch your oldest daughter get married and live a happy life with someone who is her world when once upon a time YOU were her world....I love my Dad so much and no matter how much i grow up and how much i am on my own now i will always make sure to make time for him and to show him how important he is and has always been to me....And when Josh doesn't answer my calls fast enough, I'll always call my Dad with my stupid little questions : )


Just a quick note while on my lunch at work and listening to the music that reminds me of my love. I know you check my blog daily love and i just wanted to tell you I LOVE YOU, with all my heart! Thank you for all your support and motivation to help me train for this marathon. I'm looking forward to weight training with you tomorrow for the first time : ) I cannot wait to get home to you tonight xoxox MUAH!

Dinner with Dad...

I had a great night out with my dad Wednesday night after work. Josh was working late so i met my Dad for drinks at the Elephant Bar. We had a great conversation about life and where we are both at in life right now. I was happy to hear that Oregon was no longer an option for my Dad and that he's keeping his house in the Country Club ( I love that house and i would hate to see him get rid of it). I gave my Dad some advice on a few other things he had on his mind and all in all im happy for him and where he is at in life right now. He's happy, he's having fun and he's healthy...and that's all that matters : )

Before dinner with my Dad, Josh and i were texting back and forth. He sent me a text saying "i think we should wait another 5 years to have kids, i have too much fun spoiling you and being able to do whatever we want" it said something like that...The funny thing is, i was thinking the same exact thing that morning after i posted a blog about our Valentines Day. Valentines Day was a huge reminder that we can just get up and do ANYTHING we want and spend as much money as we want because we don't have another human being to take care of. Our animals are our babies and we love taking them hiking on the weekends, we love spoiling them and making them feel like they are apart of everything we do! Valentines Day weekend made us both realize how much we enjoy each other and how we have so much more we want to experience together still!!

Over a few drinks with my dad, i told him how Josh and I are not anywhere near ready for kids. I was afraid i would see disappointment in him because i know he would love to have a grandchild sooner then later but instead it was the complete opposite! He said "Society makes everyone think life is all about rushing to get married and then rushing to have kids, people forget how to enjoy life and enjoy each other first" he went on to tell me the story of him and my mom...He gave me some great advice as well. I love my Dad and I love venting to him and hearing what he thinks..My Dad is a smart successful man and i strive to have all he has one day! I look up to him so much and will always listen closely and take any advice i can get from him. Now i know why i fell in love with Josh so fast, I'm a daddy's girl and I found all the great quality's my dad has in Josh. I have two of the greatest men in my life ohhh make that three, i cannot forget my little brother who will ALWAYS be there for me and always be my protector!

So it's official, Josh and I will not be thinking anything about having kids until after we are 30! After 30 we will leave it in God's hands and if we are meant to have children so be it and if not then that's ok too! I love this life we share and i want to experience everything we can together! I want to spoil these animals, give my husband my all, continue to focus on working out and working hard at work. I love my Job, i love coming home and relaxing, i love my glass of champagne every night, i love going out to nice dinners and traveling, i love hiking and spending money on whatever we want, i cant wait to get Josh a new sports car ohhhh i can go on and on...We are at a point in our lives where we have worked extremely hard for everything we have and now we get to enjoy everything we have worked so hard for! I'm so glad Josh and I are on the same page! Our life together really is soooooo much fun and i cannot wait to keep experiencing more and more with the one i love!!!

Valentine Day 2010

I don't even really know where to start other then my husband is AMAZING. Life has been so busy for both of us. We work non-stop and come home and work some more, i don't think anyone understands what a messy house is unless you have as many animals as us that all live in doors! Constant shedding of hair, dog throw up on the couches when they are sick and cannot make it outside, torn up couches from being chewed on, bird crap, dirt everywhere because they like to dig and bring all the dirt in the house with them etc... oh i can go on and on. However, i don't care how much work these animals are at times. I would not change having them for the world, they are so much fun!!! Josh and I had a house cleaner for a while only for her to keep raising her prices on us because she said our house was TOO much work. Her one day a week of cleaning only lasted one day and the house was back to normal again so we decided having her was a waist of money. So we clean ourselves EVERYDAY and one big cleaning on Saturday. With that being said, Josh, and I only have Sunday's together to do whatever we want...but because I'm training for the LA Marathon most of our Sunday's consist of a long run during the day and then the night to do whatever we want. All in all there is just not enough time together, or so it feels sometimes. I just miss my husband when I'm not with him..i could spend every waking moment with him and never be bored! We have so much fun together, we are both spontaneous so you just never know where or what we are going to do next and i love that about us.

This past weekend was so WONDERFUL and as always i fell in love with Josh all over again. All it takes is an extra hour, day, moment for that to happen but this weekend was just PERFECT in every way. Valentines Day morning i was up first! Not feeling too well from the night before but i was up and had to run 10 miles (dreading my run) i ran at 10am and finished at a great time (1 hour and 10 minutes) Josh cleaned the backyard while i ran and just watching him kept my mind from not being so bored on the treadmill. After my run we went to my dad's house and Josh's Mom's house to drop off Valentine goodies for them : ) Cupcakes and Oreo Balls! Then we took Aussie to Omar's to get her nails trimmed and to pick her up a new toy and food. The whole way to Omar's i had fatigue really bad, I'm sure it was a combination of having just ran 10 miles, not eating, not enough water and the bumpy car (i get car sick easily) i just felt crappy. After getting Aussie groomed we took her to lunch with us at this little hole in the wall Mexican place. The food was so good and it was a beautiful day to sit outside and have lunch. Half way through lunch Josh decides to tell me we are going to the Geisha House (somewhere I've always wanted to go) for Valentines Day Dinner! After lunch we did some more running around and then home to relax before it was time to get ready. As I'm starting to do my hair Josh says "Dang it, i wanted to get us Champagne for tonight, let's go to the store and get some" little did he know i made him a Little Valentines Day Basket, so it was perfect timing for me to give him his gift with champagne and V-day Glasses (that i get us every year) in the basket. He told me to get some Tupperware out of the pantry (totally confused on what it was for and why he was asking me to get him Tupperware) i open the pantry and there are boxes of candy and a card from him sitting on top of all the Tupperware : ) Sneaky Boy! His meaningful cards have to be my favorite part of any holiday, he always picks the most meaningful cards and writes the sweetest words. We continue to get ready and then sit down for a glass of champagne. Josh gets a phone call (mind you he has been getting these odd calls all day and every time he would get a call he walk outside so i couldn't hear). I knew something was up, i just had no idea what it could possibly be and Josh usually cannot keep a secret haha. He gets off the phone and tells me it was the wrong number.... then proceeds to say "SIKE, LOOK OUTSIDE".......I look outside only to fund the biggest Hummer Limo i have ever seen!!!! He says "we are going to Hollywood in the biggest baddest limo tonight baby, grab the champagne and our glasses and lets go" What the heck, how the heck, when the heck did you plan all this without me knowing and your CRAZY is all i could think! We took a few pictures, jumped in and headed out for the night. Just my wonderful husband and I in a huge 30 person limo : ) What a wonderful night and wonderful surprise that i would have NEVER guessed! We had so much fun goofing off and blasting the radio, drinking champagne and just enjoying US !!! The Geisha House had great food and was packed. We had a great view from where we sat, everything Josh planned was just prefect.

Valentines Day has to be my favorite little Holiday. I hate when people say "we don't celebrate Valentines Day" it should be a day where you GO ALL OUT for the one you love. You only live once and why not take one day a year to make that one day SUPER special. Everyday feels like Valentines Day with Josh, he is so romantic and so thoughtful ALWAYS but i ALWAYS look forward to V-Day and all the thought, effort and time he puts into making it MORE special then just an average day.

Life cannot possibly get better then it is now. I am so head over heels with husband. I love this life we live of being crazy, spontaneous, passionate, loving, goofy and the way we connect in EVERYWAY is just such an amazing feeling i have never felt with anyone but Josh. It's weekends like this past weekend that make me realize how great our life is and how there is no place in the world i rather be other then with my husband, nothing makes me happier then being with my best friend and experiencing what life is all about with him! This past weekend reminded me that we only live once and that Josh and I are going to Live this life of our to the FULLEST doing everything we have ever dreamed of.

Josh, i love you and thank you for such a great weekend. Our time together is more valuable then anything. You are my world and life would be oh so boring without you in it. You make me smile, you make every day fun and so full of love..i dont have bad days because of you. I have a husband in which i have not one single complaint about (other then i wish i had more time in a day with you : ) ) and I feel so so LUCKY to have in my life. Too often people dont express their love for one another and that will never be an issue here my love xoxox
