"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Happy <3 Heart <3 Day

All day yesterday I was so excited to have a good dinner out with my hubby. We were planning on Mexican and I could not wait. When Lance got home he said let's go to Ooka's. (sushi) Anyone that knows me knows i do not like ANY kind of food from the sea. But I love him so i said ok. Good thing they had chicken. It ended up being a really cool place. We only waited about a half hour.
Lance just started eating sushi and loves it. He had 3 rainbow rolls. shown in the picture above. and 2 tuna rolls. I had teriyaki chicken and white rice. I also got a sweet potatoe roll so I could feel like i was eating sushi too. Didn't get a pic of that tho. oh they also have the best strawberry lemonade. MMMM

Hi Sarah! Thanks for the comment! It really touched me, if I can offer any advice it is just to stay strong and he should come around! I'm sure he wants that happiness for your family just as much as you do! He just might not know it yet! ;) I recommend getting close to a couple in your ward who are an example of what you want your family to be, someone he could become good friends with and that will help speed up the process! Keep me updated! :) By the way my hubby and I LOVE sushi - those pictures look good!

I am with you on the "no food from the sea" thing. I will not eat sea food at all, not my thing. My poor husband because he totally loves it! oh well....

Okay sushi is a no go. Heather loves and it and got some one day. I was brave and tried a california roll-crab. But it just still tasted too fishy. But good thing they had chicken!

You are a better wife than I am. I won't even step foot in a place that serves fish because I can't even stand the smell! Sean doesn't understand considering how my dad loves fish so much. The thought of all the fish my dad would catch each week sitting in our freezer makes me gag!!

YUMMY! I'm picky with sushi, but your dinner looked delish!
