Proud Wife

That's my hubby...being a cute uncle (to his new little niece, Emery). I must say that I am a proud wife. Jas has many characteristics that I admire and I just wanted to focus on one today that I have been thinking about lately. This characteristic is Jason's generosity. Jason is generous towards others in many ways-- with his time, with our money, with his giftings. I admire this about him and it challenges me, too. It's funny how often times our spouses giftings may be one of the other spouses weaknesses...and God uses that to challenge, sharpen, and teach us in marriage. I feel that sometimes I prefer to choose when I would like to be generous and what I don't want to. And it is often Jason's inclination to share generously with others. So I just wanted to throw that out there...brag on my man for a bit :)

Also, in other news-- Jas took his physical agility test this morning at 7 am and did great! The applicants are supposed to finish by 10 minutes and 20 seconds with no errors and Jas finished in 8 minutes and 12 seconds! We are excited to move on to the next phase of the fire fighting application process. We will continue to keep you guys posted on the journey.

A weekend away...

Thats what Jas and I did last weekend...took a break. a little retreat, if you will. we went to Galveston and enjoyed playing at the beach, going out to eat, sleeping in, and watchng movies. We stayed at the Hotel Galvez too, which was a bonus. I love its historical-ness. It was built in 1910...pretty cool. Anyways, Here are some photos from the weekend. I must admit that we did get a bit sunburned...we were only out at the beach for 3 to 4 hours, but I am awesome and didn't wear sunscreen (and basically haven't been outside since our honeymoon nearly 2 years ago) and Jason put two blobs of sunscreen on his shoulders. this resulted in having the white shoulder pad look. pretty cute. enjoy! happy memorial day weekend!

I just wanted to give a shout out to my mom on Mother's day so that others in the blogging world would know how great she is! My mom is wise, generous, loving, gives good back /ear scratches, is a good grandmother, and so much more!
