Brad and I met through mutual friends. We grew up in the same town, went to the same school, and hung around most of the same people, just never really "met". Summer of 2003 a friend and I were at another friends how swimming and just hanging out. I remember this day like it was yesterday. We were sitting in the drive way just all talking and Brad and his friend Cory (our best man in our wedding) drove up in Brad Tahoe, with the windows down, music very loud, NO shirts, LOTS of muscles, shorts, and a cowboy hat. I asked another friend "WHO'S THAT??" he replied "Kubin"...I was like OH...I think I know him.
Time went on and we still hung around some of the same people, same parties, etc... We finally starting talking every time we saw each other and became friends. His best friend Cory and my friend Christy had starting to kind of date, so that meant we were always around each other or ended up at the same places more often.
I had heard rumors that he liked me....a lot! I was flatter, but not interested. (he denies those rumors HA...I believed them)
Like I said, time pasted on. months went by, a year went by. We still hung out all the time. Some time during that end of 2004 I started growing strong feelings for Brad. It was God pushing me in the right direction.
Christmas Eve 2004 he came and picked me up and we went out to some one's land for a small party and when he dropped me off at home, he walked me to my door and kissed me goodnight.
That was it!!! I was in LOVE!!!! (I think I had been for a while and just wouldn't let myself fall)
He told me he loved me April 2005 (while dancing at his sisters wedding, his dad singing Amarillo By Morning)This picture is pretty cool...My mom took it, but at the time had no idea he had just said I LOVE YOU!! How awesome that she caught it on camera?!
We moved in together in July 2005.
We married July 2007
Kynlie came September 2008
Life is wonderful. He make me smile more and more everyday. Most of all he makes me laugh all the time and I know he loves me with all his heart.

I've been a bad blogger. I have a good reason. I started my new job Monday!!! It's totally different from my old job. It's a lot of work. I am always busy and always learning something new. Oh and by the way...I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is never any down time in a doctors office. Now I understand all the time they had to tell me no they did not have an appointment available that day. I've had to work late this week, but I think it's because I'm new and a lot of time went to training me and one of the girls I work with said it was a busy week.
I have to be honest. I sure do miss my time during the day checking up on blogs. (yes, if anyone from my old job is reading, I did get on the Internet...some times HA!) (oh and Cathy, I miss you!!)
I think (know) I made the right decision taking this job. So far I love all the people I work with and for. Notice I said "so far"? I hope it doesn't change. I really do believe God brought me to this job for a reason. It might be so I can grow and learn more. They mentioned to me the other day, if I was interested, they would show me how to do vitals. I took two years in high school of Health Car Science, so I use to know how. Also, they want to teach me how to give shots and draw blood!! AH...scary!! I have a history of passing out. Hopefully it's all behind me.
One way I think God it working here, by allowing me to have this job and to bring me closer to him. I found out today that one of the girls I work with (she's part-time)...first let me say, she is so sweet and a wonderful trainer, I wish she worked full time. Anyways, I found out that she lives down the road from me, just around the corner and that our daughters are only 2 months a part and their names are very similar and the best thing that I think is a God sign is that her husband is the youth pastor at the church I grew up in!!!! I've been wanting to go back there for a while now. Now knowing there is another couple there our age and that have a daughter Kynlie's age is motivation for me to go back. I really think this is God's way of getting me closer to him and he used me getting a new (better) job and meeting a new friend to do it. I love how he works!!!!!
Easter was good!! I have LOTS of pictures to post, just not right now.
Although Easter was good, it was a sad one. One of my best friends (I'm so glad I can call her my best friend) Heather, also known as Kynlie's baby sitter, her dad died suddenly last Wednesday. They believe he had a massive heart attack. He had been sick, but they had no idea this was coming and to come so fast.
She called me Wednesday morning at work, crying hysterically, saying "my dad's dying, my dad's dying". So, the first thing that came to my head was call my mom and get her over there so she can leave. The sweet mother I have, didn't think twice, picked up her keys, left work, and was there in less than 5 minutes. Unfortunately, Heather didn't make it in time to say good-bye to her dad. My heart broke and still is breaking for her. I know how much her dad meant to her and her sister. I know though, that she knows he is in a much better place, watching over her and her family and her sisters family. The service was beautiful. Our pastor from the Cowboy Church did the service and can't think of a better funeral service I've been too.
Easter was also my niece Bailee's 15th birthday. Man, I can not believe she is 15 teen. I remember the day like it was yesterday when she was born. I was in the 7th grade and my mom waited till the end of the day, but then she finally called me out of school so I could go to the hospital to meet that beautiful girl. I have some great pictures of her on her birthday I'll share very soon.
I'm hoping to have a lot of picture upload this weekend and I can work on it. I'm going to bed now. I'm tired and I'm sure if you are still reading my rambling thoughts then you're tired too, so bless you!!!
