Weekend Wrap Party - Fathers Day weekend

How was your Fathers Day weekend? 

The thing about sentimental holidays is they can be days of extreme joy for some & sadness for others. Either way, I truly hope you had a good weekend or at least made it through. 

Here's a special Fathers Day card I helped Guiness put together for Mike...

Front of the card 


I also spent time with my dad. 

This is me & my dad. Horrible picture of me but a great example of what kind of dad he is. Last year, we worked with Habitat for Humanity building a house. He seriously could run laps around 20 year olds. 

It's really funny because as a little girl (like really really little) I remember telling my dad I wish I could marry him. I know that sounds really weird. First of all, I didn't really even know what being married meant but I did know that my dad was one of the coolest guys in the world! 

As a little girl, I was so proud of my dad I told everyone he was a professional wrestler, which was somewhat true (he wrestled in college & was pretty dang good). Ofcourse in elementary school the professional wrestlers my friends knew were the WWE guys. When they saw my dad, they thought I was sooo full of it. ;p 

As a kid, I thought my dad's jokes were the most hilarious thing I'd ever heard, he was a genius because he got all the jeopardy questions right, the best PE teacher there ever was because 1) everyone said so & 2) because he taught us really cool flag routines. The older I got though, the more cool I thought I was & less cool he was. ;p 

That's one of the reasons Fathers Day is very important...I've got some years to make up for not thinking my dad is as cool as he really is! :p 

He's incredibly humble, generous, ingenius, compassionate, I know will always fight for me & the rest of our family, loves adventure, is amazing at being a PE teacher & camp director, adores my mom tremendously & loves the Lord too. 

He is my biggest fan & I couldn't ask for a Father that loves me, supports me & encourages me more than he does. He really is awesome & the funny thing is I married someone very much like my dad. 

Happy Fathers Day!
