Then Saturday Carl & I went to our sister in law's dad's funeral... even when you don't know the person it sure makes you think about life!!
Sunday was just amazing !!
(Thank you to our Pastor for being willing to step out of the Holy Spirit's way!!!) What a day!
A year ago today we got married... I'd asked for a lot of prayer warrior back-up months before the wedding. To us it wasn't just our wedding but a special day between our family, friends with us and God and God was definitely a big part of our service... so I wanted lots of prayer for it. THANK YOU SO MUCH to those of you that did...the day went off without a hitch.
The next day was Sunday and we went to church.... testimonies were shared and God was definitely felt in the room... it was quite a service.
As was Sunday.... Wow!!
Another awesome thing I realized today... at my wedding last year, standing there with my parents at the front of the aisle as the Pastor spoke... my back really hurt (which I have issues with). We even had borrowed pretty white wicker furniture for the occasion, I knew I couldn't stand the whole time. I was honestly looking forward to sitting.
At church Pastor asked us if we wanted to come up the altar Sunday (it was amazing, most of the church did)... but today, I realized in the time we stood... I stood the whole time except for maybe a minute here or there a couple times I sat down. (you may say big whoop) but if you know me... you know this was a huge deal... I wasn't hurting.
Today was pretty darn awesome at church if ya ask me...
I was in my seat praying and so I hadn't seen that Carl had already gone up to the altar...something he never does. I had JUST been told that day from someone .... "BABY STEPS" and that to me was just a huge confirmation.
All in all, Sunday was pretty awesome.
Today, (Monday) was our 1st Anniversary... our friend Amie came and took pictures for us, we went out to the beach at King's Pointe Resort during the sunset and took pictures... well, when it's Octoburrrr the wind was blowing and well... our nice lil' haircuts we'd just gotten and my freshly-fixed hair just went WOOOOOOSH!!!! But here, I'll show you one of the pictures that came from that.
I'd seen this on Pinterest where you take your wedding photo framed and have a picture with it...then your second anniversary you take THAT picture and have a picture taken with it... so on and so forth. I thought it was a nifty lil' idea!! And...well, Carl humored me in the whole thing! HAHA I love that guy!
You know they also say you should store your cake top from your wedding and have it for your First Anniversary -- well, we did that !! Here's a picture of some of the rest of it.... (if you want to see full photos of the cake or the wedding .... go to the "Our Wedding" tab top left and check them out there!!)
Carl also took me to the Wild Rose Casino to eat the Emmet Pasta House -- we don't gamble by any means, we just went there to eat because it has a HUGE BUFFET.... it's definitely worth the cost. It's in Emmetsburg, IA if you've never been to it, just on the edge of town.
Today has been a great day! Basically, Carl & I stayed home all day... jammies.... he played video games.... we even took a nap... then I made supper and we watched "Once Upon A Time" on Hulu Plus (if you haven't seen that yet, I suggest you catch up and watch last season... it's totally worth it !!) It was nice to have a relaxing day just here at home with Carl.... (he'd taken some time off work for our Anniversary....wasn't that nice.) OK... that nap really messed me up. HAHA I think I'm gonna actually go to bed now though. Hope you all have a great week !!
