115. when did you know you wanted to marry your husband?
Well I was actually praying about another marriage proposal I had received. Paul and I had dated and remained friends. ANYWAY while I was praying about this other guy Paul’s name kept coming to me, like someone was standing in my room shouting it. I kind of laughed a little, we were best friends…THEN one day I heard the song by REO Speedwagon “Can’t Fight This Feeling” and I KNEW…I was suppose to be with him. So I basically proposed one day. He said “it’s about time you figured that out”. And we got married a few months later. Pretty major cheese huh?! Best decision I ever made. I highly recommend marrying your best friend.

And I am happy whenever my Daddy and me go on our dates or he surprises me with nice things that are special. It also makes me happy to know I can talk about my feelings and they always listen and don't get upset, that is really a special thing.

138. what do you hate about blogging?
Feeling overwhelmed with commenting on sooooo many blogs and fighting the hurt feelings when I comment over and over on blogs I love and never having them comment on mine…I do not know why I let that bother me so much (what a waste of energy). BUT I am cutting WAY back on blog hopping and commenting. I REALLY need to remember WHY I started blogging in the first place and stick to that. Oh and seeing a certain family member view our blog a few times a day every day but NEVER comment. LAME, but whatever.
Thanks Dana those were fun. It was especially fun for Big Daddy and J...
