Prop 8.

I know many of you are probably familiar with this proposition, but for those of you who are not, here is some background.

Proposition 8 places into the California Constitution the same language that voters already passed by 61% of the vote in 2000.

The Consequences:
The Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage did not just overturn the will of California voters; it also redefined marriage for the rest of society, without ever asking the people themselves to accept this decision. This decision has far-reaching consequences. For example, because public schools are already required to teach the role of marriage in society as part of the curriculum, schools will now be required to teach students that gay marriage is the same as traditional marriage, starting with kindergarteners. By saying that a marriage is between “any two persons” rather than between a man and a woman, the Court decision has opened the door to any kind of “marriage.” This undermines the value of marriage altogether at a time when we should be restoring marriage, not undermining it.
Vote Yes.
Passing Proposition 8 protects our children and places into the Constitution the simple definition that a marriage is between a man and a woman.
Bottom Line:
Please remember, this proposition is not anti-homosexual or anti gay. It simply is stating that we believe the only marriage that should be recognized is that between a man and a woman. I firmly believe that at this time, we need to not only take a stand on restoring traditional families, but work to create a society in which families are the central unit. Sadly, this is so much more important than most people realize.

September 23, 2008


Last Monday marked mine and Dave's one year anniversary! I can't believe it's already been a year. It went by pretty darn fast, and has been pretty darn great too! For our anniversary, Dave took me on a surprise weekend getaway to Laughlin for a little rEsT & ReLaXaTiOn. The week before was a hectic one at work, so I was very much appreciative of the sleeping in and being away that he treated me to!
Peek-A Boo!
On Monday I got a dozen red roses on my desk at work, and we went to eat at our favorite Mexican spot Morenos. On Friday, Dave asked me to check the mail really quick before we took off to Matt Waldrip's wedding reception, and I was so excited to find this adorable necklace in a package!!

Seriously, I love my husband!

A big thank you to him for all he does, which is way too much to list on here (and i'll spare you all the mushy details).

My new favorite

On Sunday before church, Dave and I stumbled upon this show called

"Million Dollar Listing".
I was hooked in like 10 minutes! It's about 3 young guys who are all like real estate superstars and sell way more million +++ dollar homes a year than anyone under 25 should. (Am I jealous? haha) So I started to TiVo the show, and have been anxiously waiting to see if any new episodes air when I get home from work. It's on Bravo, which I've never really gotten into before, but man, there's something about watching these "kids" sell houses to people who don't even flinch when they throw down like 2.8 mil for their sons bachelor pad while he goes to Pepperdine. Anywho, that's my latest addiction.

In other news, I've been working my butt off! Going in at 7:00, leaving at 6:30. Taking 1/2 hour lunches, non stop phone calls, juggling kindergarten enrichment classes until I hire a new teacher, yada yada yada. I just want to go into work at 9 like normal and get an hour to breathe and maybe power nap!! I guess all my hard work will pay off, and there's something about being to busy to even check my phone for texts that's pretty satisfying at the end of the day. I just hope the end of crazyness is in sight. It should calm down, today was the 1st day of school, so I give it like a week until I can be a bit more settled.
