Found some older pictures Taylor took from the top of their ridge at home. There really is no place like home…

Taylor asked me to marry him… 🙂 (well actually he proposed in June…but I won’t be here, so I’m posting now) He proposed on Lake Michigan…closest we could get to a beach…haha.

He made this sweet Build-A-Bear, it has a sound chip of his voice in it. It says “You are always in my heart and I love you very much”
Beautiful ending to a perfect day.

Retired veteran of USMC under fire…

So, I saw this on FoxNews a bit ago and couldn’t help myself from posting this. 1, it’s insane. 2, someone has wayyyyyyyy too much time on their hands.


Frank Larison is a disabled veteran with more than 14 years of service, including more than a year of combat duty in Vietnam.
The 58-year-old former Marine now finds himself under attack by his Dallas homeowners association for displaying seven decals on his vehicle supporting the Marine Corps.
“To me, it’s being patriotic, and it shows that I served,” the veteran told FOX 4.
The board says the decals are advertisements that violate HOA rules, and must be covered or removed.
Otherwise, the homeowners association for The Woodlands II on The Creek — where Larimore has lived for eight years — says in a letter it will tow the car at Larimore’s expense. The board also threatens to fine him $50 for any future incident.
Larimore says the decals, ranging from the Marine emblem to Semper Fi slogans, aren’t advertisements for anything. “You can’t buy freedom,” he reasoned.

I seriously hope those crazies come to their senses. I can understand if they don’t want signs or stickers all over the house/yard. But c’mon, his vehicle??

We went to the Marine Corps Museum this morning. I really enjoyed walking through it. It was a bit bigger than I realized.

If you have a chance to go to this musuem (the one at Dulles)…I highly recommend it. It was really neat.

Season 8 American Idol – Kris Allen

I was sooooooo excited when Kris Allen was anounced as the season 8 American Idol. Kris is so talented and was the underdog the whole season. I’m also excited that he is a “true” musician. He was always playing guitar or piano. Congrats Kris!!
