Wow it is already August! How did that happen?

Yesterday was my parents 28th anniversary! Yeah!!!

This week I am on vacation, which is so great! I haven't done much of anything, but it is just nice to sleep in and do whatever I want. Today I am at Panera while Devin is working.

There is not too much news in my life. I am feeling better and I have more energy, the next step will be getting back to working out as I have had a 2 month absents. My goal will be to walk the thanksgiving day race this year instead of running it as I will be 6.5 months pregnant by then. Wow that is crazy! I still can't believe I am going to be a mom, but I am super excited about it!

Other than that nothing else is going...Maybe I will come up with something more inspirational the next time I blog ;-)

This last weekend Devin and I went to a Marriage Conference.
We had a good time. It was very encouraging to both of us as we went through each of the sessions and saw how blessed we are as a couple!
From our room we could see the baseball stadium and on Fri Night they set off
Fire Works!!

We put the two beds together to create a giant bed so Devin would have plenty of room and I wouldn't be pushing him off the bed...apparently I am a bed hog ;-)

There were about 600 couples at the conference.

I know it has been a while, but time seems to run away from me. So here is a short update:

Today I am at the library so I can actually write this note.

This comming week I will begin to train for a half marathon which I will run in the fall. I am so excited. Today Devin and I went to the tack so I could work on my pacing.

Next weekend we are going to a Marriage conference in Indianapolis which is about an hour and a half away. It should be a great time plus I get to have some time off from work ;-)

I will have to write so more thoughtful things at a later time becuase I need to get home, clean up the house and then get back to Penn Station to pick up Devin.

So for now I will say goodbye and will soon have more to say and hopefully some pictures!

A post for April:

April equals MARCH MADNESS

I am in the running for 2nd place at the Gym for my brackets.
I need UCONN to beat MSU and UNC to beat VILL.
Then I need UNC to win it all!! HEHEHEHE
If I win I will get to trade in the mesh bag and t-shirt for smoothies, if they let me, and of course they will ;-) because who can resist my sweetness...

Saturday, February 07, 2009


I turned 26 at the start of this year. The last six and a half months have been a season of many new and exciting things. I got married, had my first Christmas with my husband and now my first birthday with the man of my dreams!! Devin is amazingly romantic!! For my Birthday he planned out whole bunch of different surprises!!

My Awesome day:

Devin told me the day before I would be dressing up and that I could sleep in so this is what I did for my birthday:

  • Slept In!!!
  • Got dressed up
  • We got a little food from Wendy’s because I was hungry and it would be a little while before dinner.
  • Drove to the Creation Museum and went to the planetarium. (I loved it, I’ve always loved stars…it makes me think about the greatness of our GOD)
  • Dinner at Carrabas!! (I had Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans with almonds…Amazing!!!)
  • Movie: we saw Marley and Me (Definitely a must own when it comes out)
  • Back Home, I journaled while Devin set up the bedroom.
  • He brought me in with my eyes closed and when I opened them I saw a “Happy Birthday Michelle” sign on the wall, a chocolate cake all lit up, flowers in my “Mrs.” cup, and champagne glasses for our bubbly apple cider.
  • Devin also gave me a card and five movies!!

Day two: This was going to be the first event of the day yesterday, but it was closed so Devin extended my B-day one more day ;-)

  • We went Go-Cart Racing at an indoor track!! I lost, which is not a surprise, but we had a great time!

Reception in KY

On Saturday January 17th we had our reception at the church. We had a great time and it was wonderful to share our wedding day with all of Devin’s close friends. We showed the video of the wedding. Devin’s foster parents also came and they brought baby pictures of him!! I loved meeting Bill and Rosalyn they are a wonderful couple!!

New Name

I am helping at church with a Valentine’s tea for the ladies; so on Sunday I was given a paper listing the vision for the tea as well as all the jobs people had. As I scanned the paper I was looking for my name, nope I didn’t see it. I scanned again; then it dawned on me, Oh wait, Michelle Moore, that is me!!! I thought it was funny, still learning who I am ;-)

Snowstorm Jan 09

Today is my second day home. Yesterday we got snow, ice, freezing rain…and so work was closed. This morning I tried to go, but my car is stuck in a groove of ice…So here I am writing blogs. It is strange how I like having an extra day, but at the same time feel guilt because I needed to be at work. I wrestle with these feelings of happiness and guilt, but come up with little absolute peace. We are going to try to get me out again later on so I can go back tomorrow…so in the meantime I will choose to enjoy the day and continue to write, clean and get things done…

On December 29th we moved into our apartment. This whole week we have been bringing boxes in and going shopping for all we need. We have been so blessed. Even as I type this I am sitting on a couch that was donated to us…we have all we need…God is so good!! Praise be to His name.

Wedding Pictures

Two Become One
December 20th, 2008

This December I became a Moore!!!
I can hardly believe I am married now.
It is such a Blessing and joy to have Devin in my life!!

A little background:
Devin and I met online June 16th
After the first date I was confident I would marry him.
Devin said on our third date (which was at his softball game) he knew too.
Six months and four days later we were saying “I Do.”

Wedding Day:

The day was beautiful! The sun was shinning (which was the only sunny day the entire time we were in Reno) and it warmed up enough for Devin and I to take pictures outside without freezing! I got up around 8am to get ready. Mike and Ali came over to the house to do my hair and make-up, which turned out beautiful.

At noon we were all dressed for pictures at the reception site. We started the ceremony at two. The whole day was as beautiful as I felt. Devin and I took communion, during which our song we wrote was sung by some friends of the family. It was beautiful!

The reception was wonderful; we danced, ate awesome food and cut the cake. One of the best parts was showing Devin the surprise video our home church made for him since no one was able to come to the wedding…He loved it! This day was all I could ask for. We were so blessed by everyone there. My mom did a wonderful job getting everything together. Thanks Mom!!! We loved it!!!
