I meant I have not eaten out for *EASTER* dinner. I have, of course, eaten out for dinner before. :)

Easter, Plants, and my love.

It has been a while. I always feel as if I do not have much to blog about, but I do. I will just write about a few things now.

Easter, our first one together! We went to the sunrise service at church and the afternoon one, then headed out to New Hampshire to meet with Kurt's family at a very nice restaurant for Easter dinner. I have never eaten out for dinner, the day was lovely.

we did not match so I had to make it black & white.
I greatly dislike it when things don't match.

This may be random, but most everything I say is. My dad started plants a while ago. This year they seem to fascinate me more then ever. I helped out for a bit it was quite fun. I can't wait to plant them in the garden!

I was not eating them, I was replanting them to
larger containers.

Some of you may know that my husband is in the process of becoming a state trooper. Some may not. For those who don't I will try to explain all that is going on as well as I can.

To become a Maine State Trooper you have to go through various steps before getting hired.

(1) Pass a Physical Test (Push ups, running, etc.)

(2) Pass a written Test.

(3) Fill out an extremely long application.

(4) Go to an Oral Board (Interview)

(5) The State Police do a wicked long and extensive back round check.

(6) Polygraph (Lie Detector Test)
Horrible, never go to one.

(7) Colonels Interview.

I think that is everything. Each step is pass or fail. If you fail at any point you have to wait 6 months to re-apply. Each step you take you have to wait for a letter to come in the mail to let you know if you made it to the next step. This process has taken Kurt over 6 months so far, he has passed each of the beginning steps, just passed his Polygraph and is now going to have his Colonel's interview June 9th. The Colonel decides whether Kurt is the right fit right now or not, and will let him know at the end of the interview if he is hired or not. Please pray for him! It would really work great for us if he can pass and head to academy in August.

I am so proud of my love for all of the hard work he has put into this.

I have been enjoying the sun, and have already gotten burnt. ( I WAS WEARING SUNSCREEN FOR THE RECORD!) I have been keeping busy and trying to keep patient. :)

Today after cleaning through the morning, I am headed out to the bank for my daddy-o and then going to get shoes for the wedding and mother's day cards.

Have a wonderful day!!
