That time of year again

It's that time of year again...the snow if falling, the semester is getting busy, and Valentine's Day is around the corner. We had half a day yesterday due to the snow and then the elementary school canceled school for today as well. RIDICULOUS if you ask me. We only had five inches, all of which finished falling before midnight. It is melting and the roads were cleared before I woke up...so why cancel school?? It's funny though, that Christ knows exactly when we need a time for rest. I have had the busiest two weeks, probably since I started here at Evangel. The last two days I have been up at 6 and busy til 2 am with meeetings, duty nights, floor activities, floor devos, floor intramural games, coffee catch-up dates with friends, and the like. I leave for a pre-marital retreat tonight at 5 and wasn't going to get even an hour of down time until Sunday night,..if that! Going on four hours of sleep every night for the last week, I needed rest. A snow days was just what Christ ordered. Thank you LORD! For the first time in my life though, I found myself chanting, "Don't cancel school!" Because they took a snow day today, we will have to go to school on President's day, a day we were supposed to get off. My cooperating teacher had already planned to be out of town for that weekend, so it looks like I get to take over the class that day! I'm so excited...and so scared.
Help needed....JP and I decided to get each other something small for Vday. I don't really LOVE this holiday other than the fact that I get to see him all dressed up and handsome, get a free dinner at a nice restaurant, compliments of my man, and get chocolate! Seeing as we are A. college students and B. getting married, we kept our limit at $25 and decided it has to be something for our house, for when we are married. What can I get a guy that is for our house when we are married? ANY suggestions?!?!?!?!?!?!?!


This is us on Valentine's last year...doesn't he look so hot! THis is exactly why I can't wait for this year!

Maybe a power tool, if he's handy

or...

a body pillow with a cute cover?

or...

a homemade fleece blanket?

just thoughts - THAT's A hard one!

how about a dvd player for your bedroom or a cd player and radio that can go underneath a cabinet in the kitchen....you can buy him a foot massager that plugs into the wall...(i bought jason that one year)....ipod alarm clock..not sure how much that is though....what kind of pillow does he like to sleep with? Jason has a certain type firm type..you can buy him that kind of pillow whatever kind he likes.... jason and I have to label our names on our pillow case tag because he has to have HIS pillow. Buy something sexy you can do in the house!!! Uh oh...yes i did say that. Supscrption to ESPN magazine....and then I will think of maybe somemore stuff too.

Valentine's Day gifts are only for those who are dating. Why don't you get a married person's gift...a card and candy and then you call it a day.
