We thank you for taking the time to visit our blog.

My husband and I are a young, growing, Christian, military family. My husband is a Captain in The United States Marine Corps. I am a former Elementary school teacher. We are first time parents to a beautiful little two year old boy, with twin boys on the way! I am a stay at home Marine wife, who loves to bake, cook, sew and craft! I enjoy being a Domestic Engineer. The purpose of this blog is to document the story of our life and adventures as they take place.

We are honored to be serving our country and ask for prayer in our upcoming adventures. We have been blessed tremendously, and thank God everyday for all he has given us!

10 Things I Love About Rich/ Thankful Thursday

Check Spelling It's Thankful Thursday and today I have decided to combine Thankful Thursday along with The Valentine's Day Marriage Challenge. This week the two posts go together for me!

This week's "Be My Valentine Marriage challenge" is: To be a little more creative with your praise. Surprise your husband with one of the following:

1. A love message on the mirror

2. A love message packed in his lunch

3. Use sidewalk chalk and write a love message on the driveway

4. Write a list of ten things you admire about him and then read them out loud to him.

5. Make a toast to him at dinner with friends. Or raise your glass at dinner and list the things you admire about your husband for your children to hear!

6. Buy or make your husband a trophy and engrave it with the words "The Best Husband in the World." (I found a cheap trophy at a party supplies store - the kids loved presenting it to daddy)

7. Write a poem - even if you can't write - it can be goofy. Include in it references to your favorite movies, restaurants, places to go and memories. He will enjoy the trip down memory lane and the laugh!

8- Blow up balloons and put a loving message in each one. Fill your bedroom with balloons as a surprise.

9- Take a roll of receipt tape and write a long message with the things you admire and respect about your husband - then roll it up and put it in a bottle for your husband to open and read.
10. Get creative with your selflessness!

"When you touch your husband's deepest need something good almost always happens!"~ Dr. Emerson Eggerich
Courtney's Challenge:
"So I challenge you today to not just show your husband you love him but show him that you LIKE him!"

I chose # 4 on the list. Since Rich is away at training and has a three hour time difference, I am asking him to log onto this blog posting while we have our Skype date tonight! That way I will be able to be there in as he reads the list!

10 Things I Love & Admire About My Husband Rich :

" Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preservers." 1 Corinthians :14 4-7

1. You Love the Lord, You Are An Excellent Provider, And A Hard Worker.

2. You Make Me Feel Safe and Secure.

3. You Are Patient And You Persevere.

4. You Have A Kind Heart.

5. You Always See The Good In Everyone.

6. You Are Not Quick To Boast.

7. You Go Without, And You Are Not Materialistic.

8. You ALWAYS Know How To Make Me Laugh & Smile With My Whole Heart!!!!!!!!!!

9. You Are Honest & Loyal to The End.

10. You Would Do Anything For Those You Love.

I love you Rich with all my heart and I am so thankful for you today and everyday!
