March Musings

Warning: This post is a compilation of randomness de Marzo


1}What is up with the weather. 70s two weekends ago and then flurries Saturday night? I know "in like a lamb out like a lion" but goodness gracious, mother nature pahleeeeease stop PMSing and give me normal spring weather?!?


2}We really need to find a cure for CANCER!!! Each and every different form needs to be CURED right now! I have some high school friends who have now turned acquaintances who lost each lost their mother (s?) this month to cancer. How INCREDIBLY sad is that?!?! I fight and argue with my mom all the time, but the thought she will one day not be here scares the crud out of me. So incredibly sad, my heart hurts for these people.


3}Speaking of heart hurting and craptastic situations, BlackOps deploys in a few weeks and SportSpice will officially be the girlfriend of a deployed Army guy. WOW! Never imagined how grown up my sissy would have to be. This is gonna be a huge test for their relationship and her faith. Please pray for HIS safety and the safety of all those over there!!!!


4}Met C's family this weekend....holy cow that's big! They came in from out of state to visit him and man was I nervous. I really really really wanted to make a good impression and I think I did. However, our families are SUCH opposites! The best description " My family is more excited for a random January 7th than they show for Christmas". They aren't boring, they are so sweet, but very quiet and VERY VERY CHILL! My family is loud, energetic, sweet and crazy. Lord help us if we get married.


5}Which is something that has SERIOUSLY come up! C and I have been talking about the future and it would seem we are both looking at a forever together. Now, I KNOW how much this can change and how it's just talk until it actually happens. But, this is the FIRST time I have ever SERIOUSLY had this conversation and thought about a forever. We will need to talk more about religion but right now it's a little scary to think about how real the "M" word might be.


6}I got an iPHONE!!!!!!!Huzzzzzzzzah and welcome to the smart phone age! Can't believe I actually did it, but I really am enjoying it right now. Hopefully I won't become too dependent because that would not be a good thing.


7}Top Chef finale this week, I CAN'T wait!


8}Almost birthday month....can you say excited!!!!!!!!!


Happy Monday friends! xoxo

And then Reality hits.....


I had a super fun blog post planned today, but then I came into work and turned on the news. Somehow the happiness of spring time does not see quite post worthy after this. Please keep the people of Japan, Hawaii, The Pacific Coast and the family and friends of those who are already lost in your prayers. Today is a sad, sad, day and I can not imagine what these people will have to face in the coming days. I pray God grants them peace and hope in this trying time.

I hope you and yours are safe and sound. xoxo

Missy Monday

As in "MIS"CELLANEOUS! Ohmyyyyword how did it get to be MONDAY already? I am so not ready for another work week and fortheloveofPete its almost Mid-March.

REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY!?!?!

I had the craziest dream last night. I was marrying the ex!!!! Have any of you had one of the random get back together with an ex dreams?!?!? Those always throw me, not in a 'should I be with person EX (hahah)' but more of WHERE THE HECK did THAT come from? Yeah, I was marrying GT and my family was OKAY with it (NOWAYJOSE)! But get this, it gets even weirder. The whole ceremony was about to start and I was at the back of the church and found a note from HIS ex-confessing her love blah blah blah. Of course I flipped and ran away, but then came back and saw he had told her no (how he wrote back on the note, I have no idea, that's why it's a dream). HOWEVER, there was a new note addressed to me from one of my best guy friends J, telling me I was making a mistake and asking me to leave GT at the alter and marry HIM instead! COME AGAIN?!?!? {Let me just state that J is basically my older brother so that would just be weird.} So here I am reading this note at the back of the church and I end up LEAVING!!! Cue movie-esque music and me running around in my wedding dress (which was really pretty, not what I plan to wear but pretty none the less) and I locate J and just say 'THANK YOU'! The strangest part for me was my family, especially my sisters, was SOOOO angry at me for doing that to GT! I do not understand that at all, but again, a DREAM! I woke up so totally confused and racked with guilt about the whole thing. I immediately looked to my left to see if C was awake which he wasn't. Not sure why I felt guilty about it but I did. EEEEK!

I always wondered where dreams come from and one of my friends say often it's just a mish-mash of what happened throughout the day, week, month and your brain picks different parts and puts it together. Haven't talked to J in awhile, and def haven't talked to GT or thought of him in awhile. The word 'wedding' came up with C and I last night (and it totally made me smile) but it was referring to US and not other people. Weird weird weird!

I made these AMAZING chocolate-chip cookies this weekend and checkit: THEY ARE ACTUALLY HEALTHY BUT TASTE Soooooooooooooooo good! I was super excited and made them for people at work and everyone Loooooooooooooves them! YAY for a new guilty-free sweet.

Today is my eye appointment and I am BEYOND scared! Soo, soo, soo nervous and terrified and worried about what the doctor will say. I mean, I can tell that my Lasik has regressed, duh everything is fuzzy. I just HOPE and PRAY that this can be fixed with drops or even another surgery (that they pay for). I have been contact and glasses free for 6 years now and I really really really really really don't want to go back. Please say a little prayer for me if you can, I could really use it.

My sisters are amazing and I love them so much. BabySpice is home from law school this weekend and we had a lot of fun hanging out together. Despite the fact she almost broke my wrist playing the Wii Dance Revolution game (I am beyond BALLER at this game). I could go on and on about how much I love them, but that will be for another post!

I hope ya'll have a painless Monday! xoxo

Thirteen Thursdays

No time for a normal post this week, so it's a random list. Since it's Thursday, we'll make it '13 kinds of random'

1)Work is all sorts of crazy. New people (finally) but that means more documentation and ME leading training. EEEK!

2)What is with the weather, 60s yesterday and 20s today? NO THANK YOU!

3)I have totally blown off my eating plan this week. The weekend was super busy and too many late nights so I took Monday "off" and well, never got back on. Oh well, I needed it!

4)Breakfast today = Cocoa Pebbles

5)I threw a Birthday party for SportySpice this weekend and it was insane! I can't tell you how many random things happened, went wrong, went right and just went coo-coo! All in all she had a BLAST which was the point so I would say it was a success. :)

6)I keep finding amazing blogs to read/stalk, ya'll are so awesome!

7)I am pondering actually spending $$ to get my blog redone so it looks prettier and more 'hip'

8)Did I just say the word hip? Wow, I'm getting old!

9)Heading to a St. Paddy's day parade with a coworker, her kids (adorable), SportySpice, C and maybe BabySpice. I love parades!

10)I might be going with C to visit some of his friends for a surprise bday party. It might be 6 hours in the car each way and I might be nervous about it!

11)I watched 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' last night and it was adorable! Two thumbs way way up!

12)Ash Wednesday is next week and I am 302480 billion ways of NOT READY for LENT!

13)My birthday is in a MONTH, Weeeeeedeeeeeedeeeeee!!!


Have a great day friends, xoxo!
