this is us...getting ready for our hot dates.....

PSYCH....today we are each other's valentines...and we went to buffalo wild wings...with our matching fossil wallets....followed by watching monte carlo...and then of course blogging. welcome to our lives. 

we are missing Anna tonight while she is out with JM on a REAL hot date to Roanoke! yay for Anna and JM for their sixth valentine's day together! we LOVE them.

but the reason why we really love this day:

the pastor at one of our church homes always says that love is not spelled l-o-v-e but it's spelled g-i-v-e. because to love is to give--to give freely and fully and to sacrifice. it's to love as God loves us and to put others before ourselves. so this valentine's day we made and gave cards to all the people that we love so much! here's just a few! 

we hope your valentine's day was filled with as much love and laughter as our was.

ps we made those cards with our cricut machine! if you've never heard of a cricut before you should check it out!

first life episode: attempt to workout

as promised in a post before, we will be sharing more of our lives with you with the hope of giving you a bigger picture about what happens over here on Canterbury Ct.

this february, Christie and i made a work out schedule. we want to get in shape. we're not looking to lose weight...just be fit and healthy. so a few days ago, we sat down on our computers in a study lounge on campus. we made ourselves a calendar and filled out our workouts for sundays-thursdays.

  • sundays: just running. working ourselves up to 3 miles by the end of the month.
  • mondays and wednesdays: running, stair climber, and abs. (oh yes, almost forgot to mention the planks during the bachelor, revenge, and modern family)
  • tuesdays and thursdays: p90x ab ripper and planks during our favorite show parenthood
does that look easy? i don't know. i thought it did at first. but today, i feel a little beat up. like the kind of beating that you would get trying to play flag football, but you don't really know how to play?! you know?! 

so anyways, p90x is hard. and kind of boring. on tuesday Christie ordered a different workout dvd. she typed in "best workout dvd" in the search bar of amazon.com. and what do you know? the first choice was 97 cents. sketchy? yea. we thought so too, but we bought it anyway. it came in the mail yesterday. 

we moved the coffee table to give us more room in the den and popped in Amy Bento's Hi/Lo Extreme (anyone ever heard of her? yep, us either).  4 options: quick workout, good workout, great workout and all body pump. quick workout it is! ......44 minutes? we'll try it. 

*running around in the den
*jumping up and down
*spinning around bumping into each other
*great vine....or is it grape vine?

laughing so much that we were crying, we turned it off. then we turned on p90x and stopped laughing. 

here are some pictures that we documented from our afternoon.
