So, since I feel like Monday Morning smacked me in the face, I shall smack it back by thinking about things that I love...

D is for Dan
and look what we got them!
what a coinkydink!
cute little lacy wrap action
by yours truly
Other than one of the most adorable weddings I've been to in a while, the weekend was full of reuniting with old friends, lots and lots of deep house cleaning (i mean scrubbing bathroom floors and ceilings with a toothbrush), a little sunshine, a cute date, homemade BBQ chicken pizza, and self-serve frozen yogurt adventures with family.
Now its back to the grind. Trying out four ten-hour days this week so i can have a day off by myself in the middle of the week to get things done around the house. We'll see if i make it through! It's spirit week at the retirement home where I work and today is slipper day...so i am feelin' cozy and warm today. Should make it a little easier :-)
enjoy whatever you're doing,
wherever you are!

So, let's just Fill In The Blank with the lovely Lauren at The Little Things We Do. If you do your own, link it up here so we can see!
2. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast because i always have such an appetite at breakfast, and it makes me feel good, the idea that im fueling my boddy for the rest of the day. Plus i think having breakfast in your pj's with your hubby and puppy is just cute.
3. This weekend will be full of office decorating, laundry, weddings, cleaning, and hopefully some rest.
4. Never in my life have I had a bloody nose. I mean a natural one, unless you count Stephen (my big bro) kicking me in the nose when we were playing power rangers when we were kids.
5. The only thing better than shopping is shopping by myself with no time limit or budget...actually its not fair for me to say that, since that has never happened in my life...but i can imagine it would be simply amazing . yes?
6. I could really do with some napping by a river or something peaceful like that.
7. The most recent thing I bought myself was a few versitile things from Forever21. cheap and cheerful. A cute gray dress to dress up or down for work or play, a light purple flowey skirt (for spring, of course), a white tank with little fluffy ruffles at the neck, and a high waisted light gray skirt.

1: loud chewing. I want to throw up when I hear people
chewing their food. Really any noises that come from the head. Chewing,
sniffing, snorting, hacking, smacking...and the like.....2: being hot while getting ready in the morning. I FREAK
out in the summer when I'm trying to get dressed and my hair is sticking to my
face, or my clothes stick to me when i'm trying to get dressed...kinda like when you
have just put lotion on and you try and put on jeans. i HATE
that!....3: waking up twenty minutes before your alarm is going to
go off and having no choice but to get out of bed because otherwise you will pee
your pants.....4: bending over with your purse on your shoulder and it
flopping down and hitting you in the head and taking all your hair with it. Then
standing up and looking like you just ran a marathon, sweating and panting and
hair all stuck to your lip gloss.....5: getting home from the grocery store and realizing you
forgot to buy the one thing you went to pick up.....6: fake English accents. AAH!....7: going to the bathroom at a restaurant or store, and
washing your hands, leaning up against the counter and having a huge water spot
right on your crotch so it looks like you didn't make it to the potty in
time.....8: people giving you a hard time about not hanging out with
them enough when they never call you or make an effort either...they are just
mad because you don't spend your whole life thinking about them. That bugs
me.♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
2: frozen yogurt.....3: talking in funny voices with Ben in the
car.....4: walking into a clean house.....5: being able to find both shoes right when i need
them.....6: getting to the gym at 5:04pm and there actually being a
treadmill open with a little light from heaven shining down on it just for
me.....7: making dinner and hearing Ben audibly applaud it with oooos and aaaws with his mouth
full.....8: A tried puppy dog laying on my lap.....9: kissing my hubby. (aaaaw)....10: hand sanitizer.....11: freshly shaved legs. (once in a blue
moon)....12: my hair stylist Bekah's head massages with tea tree oil. instant relaxation.....13: a whole night of fun and mischief with my bestie, Miss Annalore.♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

My life is busy. It has been busy since I was a little kid and we lived next door to the church where my dad was a pastor. Since I can remember, I have been filling my plate with tons of things, and having to play catch-up way too often. Ben and I are really making a concious effort to slow down our life. Some of my most favorite and cherished moments are quiet times. A couple weeks ago I was really sick and home from work for three days. Not so fun to have the funky sickness, but really amazing to have three fulls days off peace and quiet at home with me and my doggy, my bible, a cup of coffee, Amelia and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and crafts.
Having quiet times is one of my favorite things to experience in life.

2. Bra. Underwire or wireless?
3. I wish I was.....?
4. The Academy Awards are (were) on tonight (Sunday night)..will (did) you watch?
5. Do you put your deodorant on before or after you get dressed?
6. Would you rather do the dishes or clean toilets?
7. How much did you weigh at birth?
8. If you could only buy one thing for the Spring/Summer season..what would it be?
The weekend here in good 'ol Oregon was pretty beautiful. Saturday was super warm and sunny and it made me want spring to be in full swing oh-so-badly.
But I must be patient...I guess I don't really have a choice since now its supposed to get gloomy and freezing cold..possibly even snow on Tuesday morning. whaaat? Oh Oregon and its random March snow episodes. Two years ago it snowed and hailed on our wedding day..March 29th. Random! Some of our friends are getting married this coming weekend..I'm praying it it bright and beautiful for their big day! Here is their cutest-invitation-ever.
So, since the sun was out for a little while this weeked, we got to put our crazy crazy animal out in the backyard. Annnnd he proceeded to absolutely go insane and destroy it. Sorry landloards...you now have trenches all over your backyard. But nonetheless, it was still nice to be able to stick him back there for a whole day and let him run out some energy.
The sunshine made me want to partake in the following things:
...just to name a few.
