Some Things Have Been Happening

I'm still in the midst of of my blogger's block.

Which is sad since Sunday was my 3 year Blogaversary.

When I started this blog, we hadn't even been married for three months.

So much has happened in 3 years.

We moved back to Houston.

Grant had a new job.

Grant got laid off.

Grant got another new job.

We searched for 67 years for our first house.

We bought our first house.

Grace, Evan, Emily, and Dean were born. Scarlett and Juliet turned 3. One more niece is on the way! (Yes, that makes our grand total SEVEN!!)

I am obsessed with food.

I am obsessed with television.

I don't like to exercise.

I love my husband.

I hate being hot.

I like to be horizontal. **Update: it has come to my attention that the meaning of this sentence is unclear. Horizontal means that I prefer to be laying down or sleeping at all times. Sitting up/standing is not as fun. That's all I meant. This is a family friendly blog, yo.

We love our church.

We love our friends.

We love our family.

I love this blog.

I love all the people I've met.

I love all the people I will soon meet. (Hey KIM and FRAN!!)

It has tapped into my creative juices.

It has released emotion and taught me things about myself.

And now the big question:

Is over 3 years of marriage grounds to change my blog name? Can I still be Jen the Newlywed?

**Afterword: It took me a sweet forever to find all those links and I regretted my decision about halfway through the process. Please click on a link so I don't feel like I just waited 45 minutes. I love you. **
