I'll be there for you...

This Show = Pretty Much Amazing.
We laugh, we cry...

OK - we laugh, I cry (hey, some parts really get you!)

Anyway, it is one of the many things we like to watch together. Sure, we each have our own shows (hello, Kendra!) but one of the favorite pastimes in our household is finding shows we both love, and then watching these shows weekly. Or, if we're lucky and find a show that's already on DVD (like that's challenging) then we can watch whenever we want.

Currently, Friends is our show of choice.

Some other highly esteemed programming we strongly recommend:

Girls Next Door {hey, we watch it for the articles!}
Scrubs {LOVE Turk & Carla!}
Cheers {classic!}
The Office {the best sitcom currently on TV}
So go watch one tonight...or better yet, give me some ideas for our next show!

Great minds think alike, but opposites attract.

Tonight my darling husband randomly pulled up a personality test website online. Imagine my excitement - I LOVE these things. I find them incredibly fascinating. Its so fun reading them, saying to yourself, "Woah, that's me! How do they KNOW these things?"

Are we that easy to read?

So, we both did the test, and I must say, it did not disappoint. It was spot on, and also gave career fields - comforting to know we are both doing some our personalities are happy with.

So here are the dirty details:

Me: INTJ. This means I am Introvert (check!), Intuitive (natch!), Thinker (of course!) and Judger (not sure how positive this one actually is, but me, nonetheless).

Some fun facts:
  • Perfectionist. {Um, yes, this would be true. You should see me editing blog posts.}

  • Thrives on autonomy and achievement. {School nerd. Anyone remember?}

  • Sets unrealistically high standards. {As in keeping a super clean house with four furballs.}

  • Natural critical thinker and brainstormer. {Thank you, SEEK program.}

Hubby Dearest: ISTP. Two matching the misses (introvert and thinker) and two very different (sensor and perceivor).

Points of interest:

  • Quiet, realistic, independent, pragmatic. {Need I say more? They have him pegged!}

  • Person of few words. {See, it isn't just because he can't get a word in around here.}

  • Loves to joke with people he feels comfortable with {Isn't he just a card?}

  • Storehouse of info on things they know well {Read: Knows every MLB player. Ever.}

So this is us. Our personalities. Alike but different. Complimentary, I think. And part of why we are one of the greatest matched sets since salt & pepper.

Hopefully you've had fun reading these and going "Mmm Hmm. Oh, that is so true. Uncanny!" Or something equally as flabbergasted.

And if you want to see for yourself what your type is, go here. It really is fabulous.

Happy Birthday, Darling!

Happy 24th Birthday to my dearest best, The Future Mrs. Smith.

Isn't she just divine? I think so.

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL??

Saturday night was the preseason home opener for our team, the Tennessee Titans. Tried and true fans that we are, we trekked down to LP Field for the big night. Some tailgating fun, a turkey leg at Logan's, and a hike up the ramps, and we were there!

The team looked great and we won 27 - 20. Here's to a season of WINS!

Super Bowl, here we come!

Andrew & I just returned from a fun mini-vacation with his parents in Crossville, TN. They have a timeshare there, right on the lake. It is SO pretty! We had a great time just relaxing together.

Doesn't he look relaxed?

Some of the fun we had in Crossville included touring the two local wineries (& sampling, natch!); hanging around the resort (mini-golf!); getting some much needed REST; and of course, fishing. This was my second time fishing, and I am happy to report that I caught four fish and got only mildly sunburt in the process. Riding in the boat was the best part though!

See my golfer shorts?

To see the rest of the pictures from our trip, go here. It was a great long weekend!

Congrats Jenny!

My sis-in-law's boxer girl Jenny just had her first litter of pups last night. They are SO adorable!! If you are thinking about getting a dog, a boxer is the absolute best dog on the planet if you have other pets, kids, or just love dogs that love to love you.

Beware - the full grown ones do not know that maybe they are too big to crawl up in your lap and fall asleep like a little 10 pound dog. But no worries - their little sleeping faces are priceless.

For My First Act...

Hello Everyone!

So thanks to my BFF
The Future Mrs. Smith, I have been slowly sucked into the wonderful world of blogging and decided to create my own little space to share our family life. Hope you all enjoy.

Before we start on the day-to-day happenings, I thought I would fill you in on where our life is now:

Andrew & I were married June 23, 2007. Since then we've bought a house in Mt. Juliet and rooted ourselves accordingly. We love home owning, we've already made several fun changes around the house and have a lot of fun keeping up with it.

Since our wedding, we've acquired four furballs that we love dearly - you can see their darling pictures on the sidebar. They are sometimes a handful, but we wouldn't have it any other way! They are absolutely spoiled rotten - sleeping in bed, treats every day, the whole nine yards. Life is pretty sweet for these little rugrats.

Other than that, we both work full time and keep busy with church, training our dogs, and other varied life pursuits.

All in all, we have a great life and are happy to share it with you here. Happy reading!
