Couples Retreat....

So I don't know how many people will actually read all this. I'm not even sure how to show people I have this. It's kind of weird. Not sure how long this will actually last. I've decided though that it would be fun to post a picture each time I blog and explain the story behind the picture. I think that will be fun!!!! And then after the picture maybe blog a little about my day to follow. Anywho... Picture time....
This as you can tell is a picture from my wedding. This was by far the best day of my life!!! And this is one of my favorite pictures. This day was full of emotions. All my family was around me. And it was probably the first day in 3 years that I was not allowed to have any contact with Chuck!!! From 9 pm the day before to around 7 pm the next day when those doors opened wide for us to see each other for the first time. I love this man with all of my heart. He sent me a letter in the middle of day, that my mother had to read to me because I was crying so much, and then she began to cry while reading too, so it took a little while to get through it!! This day will forever replay within my mind and heart!

I titled this Couples Retreat, because every once in awhile Chuck and I like to retreat to the quietness of our home and watch movies together. And it's even better when it's on a Friday night because we have no time constraint to go to bed for the next day. Tonight we have chose 3 movies that I can't wait to see!!

Tomorrow is our last day of Upward. I'm sad to see the time end, but totally excited at the same time to have my Saturdays back! This has been a fun experience!! I have no clue about basketball, but I've been an assistance coach this season. I've learned a lot! However not enough to truly understand basketball! hahaha I know that Chuck is really sad to see it go too!

Well that's kind of everything for today!!

Try try again....

I used to love having my Xanga account and this seems to be very similar!! So let's try this again....for most people that actually read this you might already know me, but let me let you in some things you might not know.
My name is Jame' Dunning. I am 23 years young and I am married to the most wonderful man I've known. He keeps me on my toes. He has a wonderful God given passion for children, and if you ever get the chance to meet him you will see that right away. He has the awesome ability to get down on their level and act like one of their own. Some people may find it strange, but I find it amazing. Sometimes I laugh and say I married a 10 year old. But i know that the Lord blessed me with this man and I can't wait to see what he has planned for our journey here on earth!
I used to be a Dunnington. That's right....I only changed 3 letters of my last name. And i chose to keep my original middle name. I didn't really want to have to say Dunnington-Dunning for the rest of my life! However I am so proud of my last name and what it means to me and my family. I wouldn't be who I am today if it were not for my family! I have 2 loving parents who have given me everything I ever needed and wanted. Some people may call me spoiled, but I call it loved. I never went without. My father is a called man of God to minister to youth of all ages! He currently works with youth age students, but he also has a talent of working with the older youth of our society. Growing up as a minister's child was true blessing. Even though as a child I didn't always see it that way, I wouldn't trade it for anything. My mother is called woman of God to minster to men and women if the medical aspect. She has been a nurse all of my life. I always loved to listen to her tell other people advice about how to treat little illnesses or boo boos! :) I even call her my own doctor!
I have two older brothers. They are 6 & 7 years older than me. Seth is the oldest of the 3 of us. He is currently the Minster of Music at Memphis Baptist Church. He has been there for almost 7 years. He is married to Holly. They have been married for almost 10 years. They are expecting their first child...Milly-Clare. We will be welcoming into this world in June 2010!! I can't wait until she gets here!
Josh is the middle child of us 3. However he is not unloved by any amount. He is a young man who works with Hospice care and is working towards earning his way up the ladder of success and is doing a great job of getting there!! He is married to Bobbie. They have been 6 years. They have 2 children, Ashton and Avrie. They will soon be turning 4 & 3. I love them to pieces!!!!
My family means the world to me, and I wouldn't trade any of them for everything!!!!That's all I got for you today!!! Hope you enjoyed a little look into me and my family. Hope it was too boring for you!!!!
