Long post?

It has been a while since I have posted. But I think I have a valid reason(well probably not but hey....what can I do).

Our girls are now in 1st grade! Man has time flown!

I am in process of starting to write a book. How far have I gotten? Well I am still mapping out my characters.

OH!! But the biggest excitement yet!!

Engagement rings

Yup you've guessed it! I'm engaged!!

This happened on 2/14 of this year. And even better news: we are venturing out to Iowa in March to get legally married!!

I am beyond excited!
I have so much I have to do this month(send in forms for marriage license, get passport card papers done). Then in January/February we will be buying my dress, plane tickets & hotel reservation.

Now our girls will NOT be coming to this. This will be our own private ceremony along with our honeymoon. Then in a year or two we will have a friends & family ceremony here in town at our church.

Don't worry, I will try to update this more often!

First Day of School!

I really don't have much to say about today. It is a sad day for me. I am sitting at home, all alone, with only our animals to keep me company. :(

I miss our little girls already!

Here is some pictures from this morning!

Ashes and B before school

In the cafeteria at school!
 Our girls will be separated for Kindergarten. =( On Tuesday they confessed that they were scared to be apart. B even cried about it!
Waiting to go to class!
It'll be a rough couple of days/weeks for me. I cried BIG time when we dropped them off. In some way I swear the girls are NOT like me because I remember my mom leaving me at the door, her and I crying our eyes out. These girls were great and went away with not 1 tear to shed. I even had to call out to them to look at me and say by.
My lovely partner was great! She didn't shed a tear and was there supporting me the whole time.

But now I am home alone. Well at least until around 3!

I seriously don't update this thing enough. But ah that is the life of a busy housewife. Some things have been going on(don't worry nothing really serious).

First off...we aren't doing the home-school thing. I know, I know....I'm a little sad too. But as of right now this isn't possible. And my partner really wants them to try out Kindergarten first. And if things don't work out then 1st grade we may pull them both out or just one(depends). But I am okay with that.

I am job hunting and have been for over a month there. Anything will do, I just need to get it done. No results yet but I am determined...and slightly desperate. I am preferably looking for something in the evening and weekends.

You's so funny because last year when I was job hunting I was looking for jobs during the day so I could be free in the evenings and weekends. And a lot of places were looking for night and evening work. And now it is the total opposite. sigh This is really frustrating. We can't afford...or at least we can't afford me to work just to pay for daycare. It seems redundant to me to have daycare and work then come to find out the only thing you are paying for is the care.

And to top off all this stress I have been a stay at home mom for the past  5 years. The only kind of job experience I have is the 3 months I worked during my pregnancy at Pizza Hut. I do have some slight volunteer work, with a local parenting group, as my role is to promote the group in real life and on the internet. But.....

When a woman met a woman.....

Is the old saying "don't look for love, let love find you," actually true?

If you would of asked me that 3 years ago I would of said no. I would of told you that in order to get what you want in life you have to take it, even demand for it. But now.......

It all started back on 2/16/2010. I was sitting at home when I got a text message from Facebook: "Dawn" sent you a message. What started as an innocent announcement turned into a blossoming, loving relationship. What started as a "I found you in a local lesbian group," turned into a family.

2 days later we met.......
And it was.....amazing. Words can not describe the happiness she brought me. The sunshine that came into my life. She was the 2nd best thing in my life. She stayed that first weekend with me....the whole weekend. We went to the park with the girls, played around. She pushed them on the swings. They laughed and she laughed. And I stood back taking pictures. Hoping she was the one.....

That weekend was one of the shortest in my life. Before I knew it, she was gone. Back to home. Back to college. She only lived 30-40 minutes from me but the distance might as well been 3,000 miles, because it felt like it.

A month and 2 days after we met I asked one of the first important questions any person asks another, "will you be my girlfriend?"

I knew she was going to say yes, but I was still nervous. As we sat outside on the bench, outside of Outback Steakhouse, all I could think was "this is the moment that will define our future." And as she said yes an unexplainable joy washed over me. That is my girl now.

And 2 years later I am glad to say that I am even more lucky today than i was then to have her in my life. I have come quite a ways because of her support, because of her love and her belief in me. Just thinking of every joy and happiness she has brought into my life makes me cry. Watching her with OUR girls when she comes home makes every minute we are apart, as a family, worth it.

This woman, who I am so proud to call my partner, all the words in the universe right out of my mouth. Words can not explain the gratitude and love and......just everything I feel about her and towards her.

And my biggest last dream is to take this woman into my arms, hold her tight and make her my wife. That is all I want in this world. I want to carry her last name until the last breath escapes me. I want to be by her side until for eternity. And if possible....even after that. I want to buy a house together, I want her to lawfully be the twins 2nd parent. I want a joint banking account with her. I want to file my taxes with her. And I want the world to see and know that Dawn E. M. and I are bound to each other.

So this here is dedicated to the love of my life. My Princess, my Dawn.
I love you so much. Happy Anniversary!! 2 years down and a lifetime to go. I will always be by your matter what.

Day 4 Photo Challenge: Most favorite Memory

 My favorite memories. The ones I hold closely. Our beautiful little girls!
Mommy and B
Now I know these are a "couple days old" from the event itself but everyone gets the point. Having the girls IS my best memory.

Day 3 Photo Challenge: A picture of your favorite cast

I have watched a lot of shows. I mean it. But there is one that has stuck with me. One that I have watched SOOOO many times and never get tired of it. And sure it is probably cliche of me, but I just can't help it.
And so I introduce to you my FAVORITE cast!!!

The L Word
Yes, yes see...I told you. Very cliche. But you know what...I don't care. This show is awesome. It is the right drama, suspense, love and sex that anybody could want. And on top of that....those are some HOT chicks!!

I am sure my audience out there is just MASSIVE so to anyone reading this: What is your favorite show?

Well looking forward to any responses. And I'll see ya tomorrow with Day #4. Good Night(or good morning or, well, possibly good day).

Games, games, GAMES!!!!!!!

I've always been a big board games person. I started playing Monopoly with my mom when I was in the 1st grade. I've always loved the game!! My mom and I would have games lasting days, week and sometimes even months. Monopoly is the one game that I have not lost interest in.

Well for the girls birthday that just passed last month my parents bought them Crazy Cash Monopoly game(with my recommendation of course). It is for ages 5+ and up to 4 people can play. The day we brought it home Dawn & I played it first(to see how long it would take to get through). It lasted a pretty long time. We spent over a hour playing it. However it was REALLY fun!!

So last night we played with the girls. And they LOVED it!!
Brittney moving

ATM spewing money!

As you can tell they were really getting into it. Ashley was losing a lot of her money but she was actually excited about it. Brittney kept getting ahead of herself. Before Ashley would even move Brittney snatched up the die and started to roll. LOL!! It was great and within a 1/2 hour the game was finished. Ashley lost all her money. Brittney had $26, Dawn had $36 and I had $25 left.

Earlier that day, when Dawn was on her way home, the girls and I got out the Cootie game and they played with it. They REALLY love that game and love making silly faces for their bug. They also used different legs for each roll. I don't have any pictures from the ending of the game but here is some from when they were playing it.
