Mr. & Mrs.

Eight years ago today, I earned my M.R.S. degree - a man at the church I grew up in used to say something like that about his daughter - cute.

God definitely knew what He was doing in providing David for me. He balances me, he is so steady and so perfect for me. I am so thankful for such a wonderful husband!

We're going to our favorite restaurant, Olive Garden, tonight! And, no more 1 1/2 hour drive - a new OG just opened up here! Yahoo!!!

To celebrate, I'm sharing with you about this cute mug and coupon set from Dayspring - I've seen it around on lots of other blogs, but they recently sent me a set in exchange for sharing here. I love the classy black/white design ~ now to make some Celestial Seasonings Lemon Zinger tea for both of us and sit back and enjoy! {Mr & Mrs}


I also love the neat coupon book of things you can do for each other!

Now, it is your turn to win - leave a comment on this post and be entered to win a $35 credit to spend at DaySpring as you choose. Comments will be open until Thursday, February 23, 2012!
