5 Days. I would say the official freak out mode as started! But, while I’m not freaking out, I thought that I would share a little sneak peak of some of our decorations! These pumpkin decals are THE BEST. And of course come from the amazing Jennifer over at For Namesakes. If you recall, that is where I got the our first police family decor. I love this shop, everything that Jennifer has in her shop, is wonderful!
I am so excited to be back to blogging! I have so much to share! Do you know 10 days from today I will be Mr. Knight?! YAY!
Do you know about The Blogger Life? If you don’t you should! It is a wonderful community of bloggers!
But, I am excited to share with you the October Photo Challenge!
I can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures!
Not too long ago we celebrated Fienx’s Birthday. Of course, I had to bake him a cake. But it was kind of hard to find a”safe” recipe. Normally, Fenix is not allowed any people food, but I make an executive decision that he was allowed to have cake!
Five Days A Week.
Five days every single week, the love of my life walks out that door. I tell him I love him & be safe, and pray that nothing happens to him. I pray for all the officers out there risking their lives to protect us.
Five days a week, I wonder what he is doing on patrol. I wonder if he is safe and okay. Five days a week he walks out that door, knowing he could never come back. Five days a week I hold my breath and say a little prayer.
Five days a week, he comes in that door. Takes off his uniform, vest and gun & gives me a kiss. Five days a week I wait for that door to open. The times it opens a minute late, I worry and all these thoughts go in my head. Five days a week I tell the love of my life that I love him, and watch him walk out that door.
I wanted to have him a reminder to be safe at work, even when I am not there to tell him when he goes to work. I want him to know that I am always thinking of him when he puts on his duty gear and walks out into a world where more people are starting to hate police officers. I want him to know that he always needs to be safe.
When I decided to re-do our door, I thought it would be perfect to put this amazing decal on it. Thanks to Imprinted Decals, I was able to find the perfect decal. It was shipped super fast! I was really nervous about putting in on my door, but it was on so easy!
Jennifer from Imprinted Decals, has some amazing things in her shop! You must go check her out, I’m sure you can find a decal you’ll fall in love with!
I am having one of those weeks where I can’t tell if the week is flying by.. or dragging by. But, I am so exited for this weekend! We have so many wonderful things coming up!
Friday- Justin works FIRST shift! This means that I actually get to see him on Friday Night! I think I see a Date night in our future! YAY
SATURDAY- Our friends are getting married & Justin took the day off! That means that I actually get to see Justin two days in a row!
Our Couple’s Shower- My mom and sisters are throwing us a couples shower! I am so excited to see my family and friends!
My Wedding Shower- Justin’s sister and mom are throwing me the “normal” bridal shower! I am so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life!
Even though the weeks seem like they go slow, and the work days drag by. Life is moving so fast! Everything is changing! I think I need to take a step back, and remember all the wonderful things in my life!
How has your week been? What are you looking forward to?
Everyone has that one place in the house where you keep special things at. Our SPECIAL place is in a little table at the end of our kitchen.
The Dachshund Picture– This is from my Grandparents house. The picture was hanging on their wall since I can remember. When they moved out of the house that my father grew up in I was able to take this picture. I love this picture and it reminds me of all the good times that I had with my grandparents. It just so happens that our puppy Penny looks exactly like that!
The Police Engagement Picture- Marrying a Police Officer is us. Marrying Justin means I am marrying a police officer. Being in the police family is very important to me!
The Knight Pillow- This pillow is the start of something new. Brenda from Green Acre Gifts made this pillow and it is amazing. It was exactly what I wanted! ((My soon to be last name is so much shorter, so its nice being able to display it!)) Brenda from Green Acre Gifts was amazing to work with. Her customer service is wonderful & her other products are awesome!
The Picture Frame- Justin’s dad passed away a couple years ago. I love having pictures of him around our house. I makes us know that he is always here with us. Justin got this frame at his funeral, and I love having it in our house. I know that he is with us every day, this is just a little reminder.
Do you have a special place in your house?
I love our special place.
I am so excited that I am hosting my first photo challenge!
Hello All!! I am so exited to say that I am back from that unexpected little blogging break!
But now I am in full force & so excited to be blogging again!
I can’t wait to tell you all about this amazing product.
So cleaning IS NOT my favorite thing at all. With two dogs and two cats, I feel like I am constantly cleaning! (Yes, I know it will only get worse when I have children!)
But, one thing I do love is amazing & green cleaning products!
