In 15 days, my sweet husband and I will get to spend a weekend in Atlanta. We will celebrate his birthday and I am beyond excited!!!!

The first thing we plan to do is go to IKEA. We have been twice together and the last time we went we bought several of the furniture items we have in our apartment now. We both love it. It's fun because there are so many unique and modern furniture items, kitchen items, and random items. It's fun to walk around and enjoy the sites. We usually buy a few trinkets too! Here is what I have my eyes on for this trip:

That night we are going to eat at the Tin Drum. It's a place we have been before and we both really like it. We bought a Groupon for $12 for $25 worth of food so we got an excellent deal!

On Saturday afternoon, we are going to a Braves/Phillies game. I'm a Braves fan and Matt is a Phillies fan so we will be cheering for opposing teams on that day. Should be fun! I'm sure we will bet something on the game...A foot rub, a back massage, etc ;-)

Saturday night we are going to Fogo de Chao, a Brazilian Steakhouse that Matt has wanted to go to for a long time. It's a bit on the pricey side but because we have been couponing and saving our pennies we will get to do that. Matt is pumped! and of course, I am too!

Sunday, we have plans but Matt doesn't know what they are so I won't blog about them yet.

I can't wait to spend the weekend in Atlanta with the Mr. and celebrate his birthday. It's sure to be fun!

A Love Letter

I've been thinking about various ways to utilize this blog. Family updates, funny happenings, birthday love, etc. Today is hit me, I also want to use this blog to let others know (in writing) how much the Mr. means to me. So, here is the first love letter.

Dear Mr. Matthew Morgan, A.K.A. my precious husband,

Today is Tuesday, March 22, 2011. We have been married for 2 months, 3 weeks and 1.5 hours as of now and as you know it has been wonderful. I have so many things that I could say in a love letter to you but today I just want to talk about your gentleness.

You have the most gentle and quiet spirit. You love the Lord so much and are so quick to believe his promises from the Word. You are so kind and gentle with me, as well. You don't get angry with me when I flip my lid sometimes because I'm stressed out. You just gently draw me in and let me know it will be okay.  I could go on and on but let's don't gross people out! ;)

The best part about you possessing such gentleness is that the Lord began to develop it within you before he created you AND he has nurtured you and increased your gentleness over your lifetime AND he knew way before we knew each other that this crazy outspoken red head would need a gentle husband.

The Foundation

Lately I've been thinking about how much time Matt and I have been spending together since we got married. We have spent most of our "free" time together. When we are not working or sleeping we are together at least 90% of the time. It's amazing. It's incredible. It's awesome.

Why am I so fired up about this?

Matt and I both believe that the foundation for the rest of our marriage is going to be formed within our first year of marriage. In fact, it's already formed a great deal over the last 2 months, 14 days, 4 hours and 28 minutes. We are still learning so much about each other and we KNOW that we will do that for the rest of our lives BUT so much of that learning really is happening right now.

We want to love to date each other for the rest of our lives. We want to enjoy dinners together just the two of us for the rest of our lives. We want to love sleeping next to each other for the rest of our lives. We want our sexual intimacy to honor God for the rest of our lives. We want to be a couple that people look at in awe because of how much we love each other FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES!

Now, let me say this. We know for a fact that our lives will change so much over the years that we are married. We will eventually spend a greater amount of time with others than we are doing right now. We will have children that will decrease the amount of silence in our home but increase the amount of love shown. We will go through more trials. We will see things differently in 10 years in some areas than we do right now.

But we didn't start this thing or rather follow through with this thing that God started so that we could be miserable for the rest of our lives! We want to be joy-filled husband and wife because that is the way it should be!

Morgan Family Update

Happy March 9th! Also know as my sweet Momma's birthday!

Life has been going well.
Matt and I are really getting into a schedule that is working for us and it's great. We decided that it was really important to make sure that we make time to spend together where we intentionally spend time together not just sit in the same room. We have incorporated date night as I blogged about earlier and also we have started having game night. It's fun for us and we hope that at times it will be a couple's game night with other friends but right now it's fun with just the two of us. Last Saturday, we played Crazy 8's and Rummy.

In other news, we went to see Hillsong United last night and it was amazing.

That's all for now. I've been fighting a sinus infection and I just don't have much energy!

Good Morning!

It is just crazy how expensive things are these days. But since that is the case and Matt and I are trying to be excellent stewards of the money God has given us, we decided to begin couponing. I do most of the "grunt" work but Matt is an EXCELLENT cheerleader! My goal from the beginning has been to save at least 50% of every grocery bill. This week we went to EarthFare, Walgreens and Publix. Here is what we got:

1 package of organic link sausage
1 3 lb bag of Pinata apples
3 64oz. Welch's grape juice
2 packages of Boca Burgers
1 cream cheese
1 sour cream
1 gallon of milk
3 32oz. Gatorades
4 packages of Crystal Light Mix
1 box  Quaker oatmeal
1 box Ritz Crackers
2 8oz. Cool Whips
3 3-6 packs of Jello
2 large containers of Planter's Cashews
2 tubs of "I can't believe it's not butter"
1.38 lbs. of red seedless grapes
1 14oz package of frozen broccoli
1 loaf of bread
1 carton of eggs (18)

We spent $46.64 and saved $66.85!!!!

We were so excited and it was so easy!!!
