Happy 3rd Anniversary!

Today is our 3rd year wedding anniversary!! I couldn't ask for a better person to spend my life with. We have been through so much good and bad, but we are still sticking together. Haha!

We don't have any special planned for our anniversary. Tonight we are going to dinner at our favorite steak house Texas Roadhouse then just relaxing at home.

I'm looking forward to many more years with my hubby!! :)

Happy Birthday, Grandpa

Today would have been my Grandpa's 82nd Birthday. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't think him. I miss him so much I can't even explain. I wish I could pick up the phone or go see and tell him Happy Birthday and that I love him.

I love you Grandpa and Happy Birthday!!

Memorial For Grandpa

Today is the day of my Grandpa's Memorial. This is going to be hard to say my final good bye to him, but I know he is in a better place and no longer hurting. I miss him so much everyday. I have TONS of memories with my Grandpa and I'm so thankful he was such a big part of my life. I don't know where I would be today without him. 

Before he passed he told me he didn't want an actual Service or anything for him, but I feel like we needed to do a little something. So, today is his memorial, we aren't going to have anyone talk or pray or anything like that (he didn't want that). We are going to have pictures out from over years and just remember what a long and great life he had. This will give us the time to talk to everyone who comes to remember him and say goodbye and hopefully here some wonderful stories of how he touched everyone lives.

Grandpa I love you so much and I'm going to miss you so much. I know one day I will see you again. You mean the world to me and hold a very special place in my heart.


Here are some pictures of from the years.......
This is a picture of me, my Grandma and Grandpa.

Old Settlers Days

You know Fall is right around the corner when all the fall events are starting up!
The first weekend in Sept Shane and I went to Old Settlers Days. We haven't been in years and I think I have maybe only been once, so it was time for us to go check it out again. It was little hot the day we went but we sucked up the heat and walked around and looked at everything. It isn't that big so it took us about an hour or so to check out all the shops and grab a little to eat.

I found this one little booth that was rings from heaven, and with my grandpa just passing I thought it would be cool to have a ring made. I love my ring I made and wear it everyday! It says Grandpa with 2 orange cancer ribbons on each side. The Orange stands for Kidney Cancer.
Shane and I have been wanting to try deep fried oreos and we FINALLY got to try them! They were awesome! I'm ready for some more. LOL

Book: The Vampire Dairies: The Return: Midnight

After finally finishing the book Shadow Souls, I have moved onto the last book in this series. I feel like it took me forever to read this last book. Let's hope it doesn't take me as long to read this last one.
After I finish this book it's time to start a new series and I'm still up in the air on which series I want to start next. I should prolly make sure I have that figured out before vacation so I can try and have a book ready to read for the plane ride and layovers. Haha!

R.I.P Grandpa

I'm very sadden that I have to write this blog.....

The evening of Wednesday Sept 4th my grandpa passed away. 

We went over after work that evening to visit him. He slept the whole time so I just sit with him on his bed for a little while and held his hand. It broke my heart to see him like that everyday. About an hour after we left my mom called me and told me he had passed. I was so upset and heart broken. But I am glad he is no longer in pain and is at peace, that is gives me relief. No one should have to go through that and he didn't want to live like that for sure. So, he is now in a better place and watching over all of us. I think of him everyday and still think this is a dream and I will wake up anytime. 

I love you Grandpa and will miss you so much!! 

The memorial has been set for Grandpa (Jack Shields) 
This is just a time for family and friends to come out and talk about the wonderful life and times they have shared with him.
