To My Sweet David

My life is a whirlwind and the absolute ride of my life. I don't know if he will ever even see this but I have to write a little letter to my sweet husband, and tell everyone how amazing he is and how dang lucky I am to have him.

My Sweet Bavid,
You are my angel, my saving grace, and my best friend. I can't imagine life without you in it. I'm so overwhelmed with love for you that I'm sitting here crying while I write this.
You never cease to amaze me. Every morning when you wake up at 6am to go to school I'm touched. I love getting breakfast for you and kissing you goodbye. I can't tell you how thankful I am for your hard work. I could not do what you do for us. I could not pull straight A's and deal with all you have to deal with on a daily basis. Thank you for being my provider and taking such good care of me. I never imagined I would have such an amazing life. I feel like I wake up in a dream everyday and the beauty is that it doesn't end. It's the greatest dream I could ever ask for.
Thank you for bringing the Gospel back to me. I had lost it for so many years, and had a huge void in my life, and you brought it back to me. You have saved me in so many ways I can't even count. I thank my Heavenly Father everyday for letting me have you as my eternal companion. I can't describe how much that means to me. It's something I never thought I would have.
I love your smile, your laugh, the way you look at me, the way you make me feel beautiful, and the way you protect me. You are the most beautiful, gorgeous, stunning, good looking, man I have ever met in my life. I wake up and feel so lucky to be looking at you. You are gorgeous not only outside but in. You have the most beautiful soul of any person I have ever known on this earth.
I want you to know that I can't wait for you to be the father of our children. You are such an amazing husband and you are going to be the greatest father any child will ever have. Our children will be the luckiest kids on this planet to have you as their Dad.
Thank you for being my best friend, for loving me unconditionally, for always having my back, for making me happy, for taking such good care of me, for holding my hand while we drive, for ordering for me at restaurants, for always switching sides when we are walking so I won't be closest to the street, and for a million other things.
You will never know how much I love you. You will never be able to comprehend the amount of love I have in my heart for you, and always will. Thank you for being mine and loving me with all your heart. I couldn't ask for anything more, and would never want anyone but you. Thanks for being the man of my dreams.
Love always,
Jilli Pepper

Awesome Day!

So I don't get to brag that much about clothes that I buy because I normally don't get screamin deals, but I did today, so I am bragging about it! Shade Clothing (my favorite clothing store) has gone out of business. I wear their Cap Sleeve shirts everyday under EVERYTHING! They are normally $15 a piece, which is what I have paid for years. I have only been able to buy 1 or 2 at a time, and on top of that they never have small's because they run out so quick (Yes, they're that amazing!).

I woke up this morning at 6 to make Dave some breakfast before school. I got him out the door and got on the computer. I was checking my email when I saw that Shade was having their closeout warehouse sale, and it's about 5 miles from my house! Well, of course I had to go! It opened at 10am and I was determined to get there. I got all cleaned up and showed up right on time. Right in the front of the store they had a huge sign that said "Everything $3.00" I was instantly overjoyed.

As I started going through every table, I was getting discouraged because they had nothing in my size. I went to the last table and to my surprise it had been labeled wrong. Everything on this table was a size small, and THEY HAD MY WHITE CAPS!! I got 7 new white cap sleeve shirts, 7 new white cami's, a night gown, and a pair of white shorts. I got to the cash register to check out, super excited to hear the price (that's a first!) and she looked up and said "$38.50" What?! That was $10 cheaper then I was expecting. I got $263 worth of Shade Clothing clothes for $38.50!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Holy cow I haven't been that excited since I married Dave! In all my excitement I grabbed my bag and rushed home so excited to show all my treasures to my husband. All in all the morning was a FABULOUS morning! That wasn't the only great thing about this day though.

PART 2A girl came by my house about a month ago and put a flier on the door. She was advertising piano lessons. Well Lou and Paula just happen to have a GORGEOUS White Baby Grand piano just sitting in their home. They bought it because they thought it was pretty and no one in the family plays. So why not me, right?!

I was so giddy when I saw this flier because I have wanted to learn to play the piano since I was little. I had to wait for Nicole and Destrie to move out of the piano room, and the day they did I called Karlee. She was such a doll! She answered her phone and told me she was 17. She let me know that she had only taught someone up to the age of 25, so she would understand if I didn't want her to teach me. :) So cute! I laughed and told her that I didn't think there would be that much of a difference between the 25 year old and my little 26 year old self. So we set up out first lesson for today. She told me that it was $45 a month for one 45min. lesson a week. WOW! How could I not start lessons??!

Karlee showed up at 3:45 and let me tell you what a cutie she is. Not only is she beautiful but so mature, well spoken, and graceful. She sat down next to me and started teaching me the basics. She taught in a way that I totally understood, and I felt like I really caught on. I now know what the 5 lines that notes sit on are, I know what a note is and what it is called, and I know what a treble clef(?) and a clef that looks like an f, is. :) LOL I also know how many beats each note is, and I know how to hold my hands, how to sit, and I can play 10 notes already! Man, I rock! ;) It was so awesome! She gave me 2 piano books, note cards that she had made, and a little practice chart. She even said that when I fill out the chart she will bring me a treat because that is what she does for all of her younger students. Well who doesn't want a treat?! Overall a great lesson!

So my incredible shopping trip, and first piano lesson made this day awesome! I felt so accomplished in so many ways when I climbed in bed tonight. I had to brag about myself a little bit. Anyway, thanks for reading my pretty pointless but amazing story! I love you all and thanks again for reading my blog! *hugs* Jilly
