I Never Thought I'd. . .


//Play 'professional' kickball for the past four years. Yes, I travel for kickball tournaments and win money.

//Meet the love of my life and husband on said kickball team.

//Plan a successful wedding in seven months. Most people I know usually plan for a year, but we didn't want to wait that long. WOOHOO for awesome an awesome mama, planner and helpful friends.

//Enjoy mushrooms or dare I say it, broccoli. Thanks husband, I think.

//Still be at my current job. It was supposed to be just a job and not an almost eight year career.

//Consider my sisters my best friends. Growing up we were close, but we fought a ton. Once we all graduated from college though, the bond between us grew stronger and now they are the two most important friends in my life.

//Be fighting a 'weight' and fitness battle with myself. I've always been petite and in shape but the past two years have been tough ones for me and my self esteem.

//Squat 135 pounds and bench 100 pounds.

//Enjoy waking up at 5:00am for morning workouts.

//Love makeup and hair primping as much as I do now. I used to walk out of the house fresh faced and feel fine. Now, I need to grab the foundation, blush, mascara and bronzer. #beingagirlisfunbutwork.

//Meet my soulsisterakaboff via this blog.

//Be obsessed with cooking shows.

//See the day the Caps missed the playoffs. It's been forever since they've played this horrible and as a fan, I'm so not happy about it.

//Buy a Louis Vuitton! Man I love him!

//Want to move to another state.

//Have so many wonderful friendships all created from my blog. I've 'met' some of the best people and love the relationships that have forged because of this lil space.

//Ever be this in love. I'm so blessed to have Le Husband.


//Witness Romo win a Super Bowl...oh wait, he hasn't yet. #comeoncowboys!

I absolutely love this post! My sister is my best friend too but I wish she lived closer boooooo. I love your LV! I was so pumped when I finally made the plunge. Now every time I write a deposit check for the wedding I'm like "here's a Speedy....here's a keep all" so depressing!

Aw great post! I wish I shared your love of 5am workouts! I attempt them at least once a week and always fail.

Erin LFF said...

I still don't like mushrooms, yuck! ;) And I feel you on the weight and fitness battle... I've always been little up until the past few years and I never imagined how tough it would be to get back to a place where I started feeling good about my body again! Hang in there girl, you are ROCKING IT and looking fabulous! :)

Katie Elizabeth said...

You deserve lots of LV's if you're getting up every morning for a 5am workout! And how have I not picked up that you play serious kickball?! So cool!

Courtney B said...

Bench 100 pounds?! Super woman! I am only benching 50 right now (3 sets of 10) BUT I did 10 pull ups this week. NEVER thought I'd be able to do that!
I looooove that you play professional kickball!
We planned our wedding in 2 1/2 months! Crazy? Yes. But it was pretty perfect!
