My Amazing Husband

Well, yesterday was just one of those days. Let me explain…woke up, went to work, had a dentist appt. to get 2 cavities filled, came back to school because my girls had 2 back-to-back games to cheer at, and finally got home at around 9:30pm. That may not seem like a long day to some of you, but to a pregnant person, it’s a different story!

Taking our stuff out of the car and transporting it to the house from the garage is an ordeal for us (just because we always have so much stuff)! So when we pulled into the garage last night I was not looking forward to lugging all my stuff in from the day…but when I opened the trunk, I saw a very pretty wrapped gift with a card on top that said, “Elizabeth”. My spirits immediately lifted because I love surprises! I asked Adam who it was from and he wouldn’t tell me.

Well, when we got inside I opened the card and, what do you know, it was from my amazing husband! Now, let me preface this a little…

You see being pregnant is a wonderful thing, but when your clothes start to get tight and you have to “button” your jeans with a rubber band, and even when your comfy t-shirts are fitting snug, it seems like your insecurities are at an all time high. Even though you know you have a growing baby inside you and it’s a wonderful thing, there’s still something that’s hard about not fitting into your “normal” clothes (at least from a pregnant woman’s point of view…all my pregnant friends know what I’m talking about)! It’s always an ordeal for me to pick out what I’m going to wear the next day and Adam always finds me standing in my closet staring at my pre-pregnancy clothes wishing I could still wear some of them. Every time before he leaves me in my slumber, he always embraces me and tells me I am beautiful no matter what I look like.

Ok, so I start to open my gift and I find two, yes two, very cute maternity long sleeve shirts that fit like a glove and a bag of Reece’s! My man knows me! I love it that my hubby has a great sense of style and I love it even more when he tucks all my insecurities away and makes me feel beautiful…as long as he thinks I am, that’s all that matters (and it makes me a happy girl)!

I know this may seem un-important to you, but it’s the little things that count and when Adam does these things for me to show me he loves me, it speaks volumes! So, thank you to my sweet husband whom I love with all my heart! Thank you for being my best friend, the man of my dreams, my soul mate, and Leah’s father. You mean the world to me and I wouldn’t have it any other way!


2 are better than 1

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my sweetie! Two years ago today I married the greatest person in the world! I can’t believe it has been 2 years! Adam has been everything I’ve ever wanted in a husband and he has definitely made all my dreams come true! Unfortunately, I am sick today, but Adam has made me feel like a princess!

It all started last night…yesterday, today, Thursday and Friday I have cheerleading tryouts for HGBCS which are from 5-7. Adam and I drove separately to school yesterday, so he went home when I stayed at the school. He knew that I started feeling bad yesterday, so he told me he’d have everything taken care of when I got home. Man, oh man! Well, it was pouring when I left school last night, so I was completely soaken, which didn’t help the way I felt. I was really down in the dumps as I was driving home and having a pity party for myself. But when I got to the back door of our house, I saw a vase of flowers on the counter, candles lit, dinner ready, a completely clean house, laundry done, trash taken out, lunches made for the next day, and coffee on auto for the next morning. All that with a bad back makes my man the greatest man alive!

This morning I woke up feeling worse and didn’t want to get out of bed. My straightener is terrible, so you can probably guess that I wasn’t in a good about my hair (it’s a girl thing). Then, here comes Adam around the corner with a card in his hands. It was the sweetest card and his words couldn’t have come at a more perfect time (he told me that I was beautiful)…my hair wasn’t much of a worry then. Today, we also had to drive separately to school because Adam has therapy right after. Well, the coffee didn’t really turn out this morning, which was a bummer, but come to find out Adam made a surprise trip by McDonald’s to get us some coffee and a biscuit! He’s such a sweetie!

I teach some of the kids that he has for Spanish and they all came in today wishing us a Happy Anniversary and told me that I was all he talked about in Spanish class. I was probably blushing, but I didn’t care. Then one student said, “yea Mrs. Hamilton, 2 years are better than 1”! She was exactly right! I know it’s kind of Corny, but 2 years are better than 1…hence my title!

Thank you Adam for an amazing two years! You are the man of my dreams and you have totally swept me off my feet! Every girl’s dream is to be a princess in a fairy tale and I can definitely say that I am living my dream! Love you hottie! Here’s to many more years together as husband and wife!

PS: Adam and I are both Spanish teachers, so I can’t end this post without saying, “Feliz Cinco de Mayo”!

Like I promised…this post is dedicated to Valentine’s day and all the special things Adam did for me (I love to brag on my man)!

Well, the day started off as any other day…we woke up, had our coffee, watched some tv, Adam started working on our taxes. Adam was in our office working when I walked in and opened the blinds…and what did I see?? A fed-ex truck in front of our house. I didn’t have a clue he was coming to our house until I saw him walking up our sidewalk. My mind started asking questions, “what did I order?”, “is this a mistake?”…no mistake here, Adam had 30 tulips delivered to the house…for me!! Now, I’m not one of those girls who say flowers are a waste of money because they die anyway…no sir, I love flowers and tulips are my favorite! You can’t help but smile when you look at them!

The day doesn’t end there…we got to eat at one of our favorite restaurants (with no wait) and he told me to pack my bags because we were going to one of our favorite places in Charlotte for the night! Man, did he surprise me! The next morning, we woke up and went to The Original Pancake House to eat breakfast (best pancakes around) and then went “shopping” around at our favorite places (the tray you see was one of our purchases)!

I could not have asked for a more special, romantic, sweet Valentine’s Day and I am so blessed to have a husband who knows my heart so well. Thank you Adam for making that day one of the most fun days ever!

The Love Doctor is in….

Happy Valentine’s day people! Man, I hope your day has been “lovely” so far because my day has been the best! Adam definately over did it, but if you couldn’t tell from my last post…this is my favorite holiday! I can’t tell you about it now, more details to come later…until then, “love is in the air…”!

Te amo!

Happy Valentine’s Day Eve!

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and I am super excited! Most people think Valentine’s Day is overrated and stupid, but man oh man…not me!! Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday…yes, even over Christmas (it comes in at a very close 2nd). I don’t know why…I guess I’m just a hopeless romantic! Adam tells me he’s got something special planned for tomorrow and I can’t wait! I guess it’s just all the surprises and having a day where it’s all about the love.

It’s very easy for me to get caught up in all the gushy stuff, but I keep reminding myself, and want to remind you that Christ showed His ultimate love for us when He died on the cross to save us from death. When we receive Him as our Savior we receive His love and that is the greatest gift we could ever ask for. I want to encourage you to remember that as you celebrate Valentine’s Day, and remember that “it’s Christ in you who’s shining through when you give your love away” ~Elevation Worship.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” ~1 Corinthians 13:13

My Blog Title: 2 are better than 1 takes on a new meaning!

Can I just tell you that the past 3 days have been not so fun. Adam left on Monday with the 8th graders and headed to Washington. He’ll be back tomorrow, PRAISE THE LORD! I know I may sound a little desperate to you, but I don’t care…I love my husband and I never want him away from me!

I have been staying at my mom’s house for the past few nights and tonight, as I write this entry, I am staying at my other mom’s and dad’s. I will stay at my house when I absolutely have to, but when I know someone in town and they offer their home to me…I’m there! I’m not one to stay by myself. I have to be honest with you…I’ve been pretty pitiful without Adam here and I am counting down the hours till he comes home…let’s see, only 23 hours to go!

So, Ladies and Gentlemen…2 are DEFINITELY better than 1!!

My Amazing Husband

Let me start off by saying that I have the most amazing husband known to man! I am so blessed to call Adam mine! Our pastor is doing a series right now called “Visionary Love, Dream Sex”. You get the hint by the title (it’s a dating, marriage, single, relationship type series). It has really opened our eyes to how Adam and I should be treating each other and the ways in which we should act.

I love Adam so much and I appreciate everything he does! I mean, there are few men out there that when they see something that needs done, they’ll go and do it…not say, “hey you need to do this or you need to do that”. I am so appreciative of what he does! To give you an idea, I’ll just name a few things you could see him doing around the house to help me out…laundry, dishes, vacuuming, swiffering, organizing, mowing the lawn, tilling, arrating, and seeding the lawn, watering the flowers, paying the bills, fixing dinner some nights (like tonight), cleaning the bathrooms, and I could go on and on! Here’s my disclaimer…I’m not a lazy wife, I just have an amazing husband!!

While he does all that, he has amazing leadership qualities he uses to lead our family the way we should be going. We have started to have a “bible study” (or Addie and Lizzy time) one night a week just me and him to just kind of catch up on things we forget about during the week and to talk about spiritual things in our lives. It’s great! If you don’t have one on one time with your husband, you need to…period.

Along with being an amazing spiritual leader, he is a great provider. I feel like I never have to worry about anything and when I do he always has it already under control…he’s 2 steps ahead of me. I love my husband so much and I am so blessed to have been given a man like him. Thank you Lord for choosing me to be his wife and thank you Adam for being my hero…you possess all the qualities it takes to be an amazing husband!! I love you!
