Thankful Thursdays!


Let's be thankful.
  • Fall colors - It's beautiful. The leaves change more every day. I know soon there will be more on the ground then on the trees, but right now, spectacular.
  • Meaningful talks - Don't get me wrong, I am female. I can talk. I love it though when you hit a topic and the talk feels real. Deep conversation is soo worth it.
  • Bake sales - There is a bake sale going on today in my building. I didn't participate like I should have. I did, however, head on down to check out the goodies and ended up with some snicker doodles and biscotti. Who actually bakes biscotti? My co-worker Rebecca! Yum!
  • Student workers- I love having someone willing to run the errands around the building that I don't want to. I don't make them do my running all the time, getting away from your desk sometimes is very important, but once in a while.... yes please!

So dig down deep....... What are you thankful for?

Thankful Thursdays!

Hmmm Thursday again!

  • Sobe Lifewater - agave lemonade is sooo good! Hits the lemonaid spot.
  • cooking at home - when I want to, I really enjoy it.
  • Farmville - It's a fum way to waste time.
  • Apple season - who doesn't love Honeycrisp apples? Yum, they make my mouth water.
  • Change - I have a love/hate relationship with change. Looking forward to this one is love though.

I think that's if for today. What are you thankful for?

I must be moody lately.

I'm fighting it today. Do you ever have one of those days that you just want to fling your self on the floor and throw a 2 year old child like temper tantrum? I don't have anything in particular that is triggering this response. I haven't had to deal with any problem people today. I just feel like it would make me feel better. The weather today isn't helping with it gloomy rain. I say we all go home and have a temper tantrum throwing time. Why at home? Cuz who wants to be witness to that, really?

TTD some more!

I posted a few of the photos from my Trash th Dress session a few weeks ago. I wanted to post some more. This session was so much fun and I can't wait to do more photos with Kama.

One of these days!!

Ever had one of these days? I am having one of these days today. Last night after bible study I had plans to go home and go to bed. It was 8:30 pm. These plans were fouled up due to my hubby being home. He usually isn't. Why, on this night that I'm exhausted, is the norm not the reality. I ended up staying up with him until 10:30 and since I'm not used to going to sleep with him in the bed with me, didn't fall asleep until after 11:30pm. I am dragging today.

Thankful Thursdays!

It hadn't really registered that it was Thursday in my head until I saw Erin's Thursday post.

  • For new life- Brad's cousin had her little baby girl. I'm not exactly sure when she was born but she's here and adorable. It's so exciting to have new members of the family. How is it that she looks so good, even in a hospital gown?!?

  • Other people's kids - Seeing the patients children and other peoples kids keeps me in check. The cute ones make me want my own and the cranky ones make me want to get my tubes tied. But at least at any given moment I usually know what my preference would be right then. :)

  • Fall smells - the air is so clean smelling. You just want to smell apple Cinnamon and vanilla spice. It's so funny that as the seasons change so does your opinion of what candles should smell like.

  • Honeycrisp Apples - YUMMMM!!!!!

  • Farmville on Facebook - I hate these little applications that come with Facebook, but this one is so much fun. Geesh, just what I need, another thing to distract me.

Tickets bought!

The tickets have been bought. I/we are officially now going to be spending my very first Christmas away from my family. This is one part of growing up and being married that I'm not entirely pleased about. Now don't get me wrong, I'm excited to see my new family and reconnect but I have never spent a Christmas without my family. Last year, our first Christmas as husband and wife, we spent Christmas morning together and then headed to my parents house around noon. Every year before that, as tradition, I spent Christmas Eve night sleeping in the same bed as my sister and Christmas Day with my whole family around me at my parents house. It will just be a change for me this year. Not all changes are bad, and this one isn't, but it is a little difficult.

The "new girl" in my office, who happens to sit right next to me AND we have been sharing supplies until she gets all hers that are on order, has H1N1. It's funny how you hear about these things and you don't think that any one you know or come in contact will ever get something like that. Well she did and she came to work with it. In her defence, her kids have croup and she thought it may be that and she's been off for 3 days already and doesn't have any sick leave built up yet. Now of course, we all wonder... incubation time? When will we know we don't have it?

This past weekend.

It's funny. Before I was married I always said that I wanted to get pregnant on my honeymoon. After I got married, I decided that it was fun to just have a husband and that I didn't want us to try yet. Mr. would have been happy to have had a kid by now. He's older then me by 4 years and his older sister recently had her second. His clock is a-ticking! He has been wanting to be trying for about 5 months now. However, with the amount of time that he has to commit to school now that he's in Law school, I see him about 5 mins a day and 1 night a week for a couple hours, if his work load isn't tooo bad. Since this won't change anytime in the next 3 years I'm not super excited about trying to get pregnant anytime soon. 5 mins a day and one night a week isn't a whole lot of help when your trying to raise a baby/kid. We will be moving in with my mom and dad in a few short months to save money and so that I won't be home alone so much of the time. I would like to be able to help them get their home in order and redecorated to show that they are a couple without kids in the house anymore. I would love for their home to reflect them a little bit more.

Anyhow, this weekend I was asked, on short notice, to babysit a 6 month old little girl who's mommy I know through the bible study I am doing with a group of girls. This is her.

She was just about the sweetest baby I've ever met. I kept wanting to call her Corinne cuz she's that adorable! Anyhow, she kinda.... maybe.... made me want to have a baby. Maybe. And that's all I'm going to say about it.
