San Antonio anyone?

Hubby and I are thinking about going to San Antonio for a few days during spring break! Does anyone have any recommendations on places to go see, restaurants, good shopping spots? I already think I've found a hotel, so I don't need that, but I'll take anything else! Ready? GO!

The Art of Marriage

This weekend our church began a new Bible study in our life groups called "The Art of Marriage". I was really excited to start this new study and we had the 1st session today. I really liked it! We started off by watching a dvd session and then talking about some of the points in the book/video. I can't wait to see what all I'm going to learn from this study.

God has recently revealed to me areas that I need to change in my life in order to become a better wife to Bryan. Now, believe me, my husband is not perfect, but neither am I. It wasn't until I was married that I realized that marriage has a way of bringing to light how truly selfish we each are. It's hard to discover this, but once we admit how sinful and selfish we are, we can move to change it.

Some things that I want to work on changing is realizing that my husband is not the enemy. Last weekend when we were supposed to go visit my friend Morgan, I was so excited to see her. I had been waiting weeks and counting down the days. Unfortunately, the snow came and even though I knew we probably wouldn't be able to go see her, I kept telling myself we were. Bryan had to be the bad guy and make the decision that we weren't going. If I had been a good wife, I would have realized that even though he wanted to go, he was making the best decision in order to keep us both safe. So did I decide to be the good wife? Unfortunately, no. I treated him like the enemy, told him that I was mad at him and that he ruined my day. I wouldn't talk to him and we got into a huge fight. I'm not proud to admit that I did these things, but admitting them is part of the growing and healing! :) I eventually took time to cool down, and realized that it wasn't his fault. I apologized to him and made everything better.

 I know that you might find it hard to believe, but I have a hard time apologizing. I guess part of my sinful, selfish, nature thinks that I never do anything wrong; however, that's not even close to being true. I'm slowly realizing that at times, I can be a huge brat to Bryan. I treat him in ways that are disrespectful and not loving. Thankfully, he's always gracious to forgive me! It's hard, but I can't wait to see what God is going to show me through this new study. I want to be the wife that Bryan deserves and I want our marriage to reflect the holiness of God- the way that it was designed to be!

Weekend with Morgan!

This past weekend, Bryan and I had the chance to go to Ft. Worth to visit our best friend Morgan! We were originally scheduled to go visit her last weekend, but because of all the snow we got, Bryan decided that it wasn't safe enough to travel. We were disappointed, but decided to reschedule. We left Friday around 5:30 and that was a big mistake. What normally takes us about an hour, took us around 2 hours after being stuck in traffic on I20 all night. Needless to say we were very glad to make it there! We had the chance to meet up with Morgan AND Chris and it was so great to see them! Chris and Morgan broke up about a year ago, but God has led them back together again and they are taking things slowly, seeing where God is going to take them. Bryan and I couldn't be more happy! :)

That night we all went out to dinner in downtown Ft. Worth, then went to a cookie and ice cream shop that was delicious! We went back to Morgan's house and all stayed up talking until about 1:30 in the morning! It was so good to catch up and laugh at funny stories together! The next morning Bryan and I spent some more quality time with Morgan, had a late lunch and then headed back to Rockwall. We had such a sweet time together and I can't wait to do it again! Thank you Lord for sweet friends!

blogger is not my friend!

Right now I'm pretty pissed off at blogger right now! Is it just me or does anyone else have the problem with the photo uploader? Ever since they changed it to this new one, it hasn't worked as well! It takes me F-O-R-E-V-E-R to load pictures...like 5 or more minutes people! This is not normal! Also, it has a habit of taking my pictures and turning them to the right when I'm uploading them. It's a major pain in the butt, b/c I have to go back, rotate all the pictures to the left, and then upload them again! Ugh! It seriously is why I haven't been posting many pictures lately. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me? I'd love any tips or suggestions if you have any! Thanks!

Baby Garrett is here!
