Happy Sunday!

This is my new favorite picture of my husband and I.

It was taken right after good friends of ours were married.

For the first time in forever I felt pretty – I think it was the dress (thank you Suzy Shier) and I had my hair done and had a mani- pedi!

Because sometimes you just have to Treat Yo Self.

We had such an amazing day.

I still can’t believe our 5 year wedding anniversary is in August.

Just wow.

 

 

Welcome 2016

Wow! I can’t believe another year has come and gone – and I can’t believe how TERRIBLE I have been with updating this!

I looked back and saw that my last update was back in June! CRAZY.

7 months!

A lot can/did happen in that time – I am going to try and keep it brief.

  1. New Job – I got a new job – in the health field (not sure if I updated my last post on that – which is mainly why I’ve been so busy too haha). I started that at the end of July!  It is what I went to school for – so that’s a plus.
  2. I became an Independent Distributor with It Works!  It was a great experience for me but I have decided to put that on hold. My husband and I have had a lot of discussion over it and it just wasn’t working out for me anymore (but the product is definitely amazing and I will be continuing to use them – love the wraps!).
  3. Because of my commute to work back and forth I’ve been spending a lot more time with my nephews and my sister in law (and brother) which has made me super happy. I also really love being an Aunt. I love my boys. They are so great.
  4. I found out I am going to be an Aunt again in March! Another nephew haha the boys just keep coming along!!! I am super excited!!!
  5. I’ve definitely haven’t been so focused on my health/fitness like I should be…but I am not going to make any unrealistic goals – just that I should probably rejoin the gym – I am so out of shape (again).
  6. In February, my husband and I will have been together for 8 years (we started dating 8 years ago) and in August it will be our 5th Wedding Anniversary – which I think is CRAY.
  7. Our Ginger friend left for Japan and has left a piece of our life gingerless. Son of a bitch.
  8. Our other son – Christopher -we visited for his birthday and he is doing as well has could be expected.
  9. My new motto (which I don’t think is really new persay) for 2016 is “No Pants? No Problem.”
  10. I think this year is going to be pretty awesome – I am going to focus more on self-care and having fun with Brian.

So, this was my little update – hope everyone is keeping well!!

something’s gotta give…

So I’ve been quite terrible with keeping this blog up. So many things have happened since I last posted.

I am posting because I am pretty excited that I won tickets in a draw to see Rain Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk in concert this Wednesday.

So I am pretty excited about that. Date night bitches.

Next month is my 1 year anniversary at work – that is pretty exciting for me as it’s been 1 year since I have started to get my career on track.

(On a side note – I really don’t miss retail AT ALL).

I’ve gained alot of the weight (that I had lost) back – so I am a tad disappointed in myself..but I am going to be trying something new in the next couple of months and see if that works…because I’ve heard it works. 🙂

OOh on another note – we tried this really delicious new recipe last night – Balsamic Glazed Steak Rolls – it was super delicious!

We are awesomeNothing really more to report – personally so here are my ramblings on recent movies/tv shows that I want to see/currently watching/watched/etc

I am really loving Amy Schumer lately…her new movie Trainwreck looks hilarious. I am really looking forward to seeing that.

Also, because I am a dork and love YA novels/movies I also want to read/watch Papertowns.

Brian and I will more than likely will see Antman with Paul Rudd…because well..its Marvel…and well..Paul Rudd.

OH Game of Thrones has been crazy this year…just so much craziness…can’t believe there is only one more epsiode for this season :(.

Semi spoilerish TV ranting:

Also, Grey’s Anatomy killed off Derek Sheppard – which I was quite upset about. I bawled like a baby.  Goodbye Patrick Dempsey.

Anyways, i don’t really have much more to say so until next time – keep it real.

another word for frustrating…

assets=liabilities+owners equity (aka jammer=confused+dumbfounded)

Online learning is very much about self discipline, which was never my problem.

It’s just the math equations, balance sheets, etc that I am finding very confusing.

I think I snapped at my poor husband too much today, and he was only trying to help me.

I kept calling myself stupid, and saying stuff like  “I should probably just give up” or

“this was a waste of our money as I’m just going to fail anyway”.

He got upset with me.

I got upset with myself.

So I had to put the stuff away for the rest of the night, as I felt I was not getting anywhere.

I think it’s because I am so desperate to get out of my current job situation that I am

just worried that I am going to fail at this, and never be able to contribute towards

a better life for my husband and I.

I am so lucky that I have him.

At one point my head was in his lap, and his fingers gently traced my hairline and he said

“I am so proud of you. You are my entire life. I love you with all of my heart.”

I should probably get my shit together, and do the best I can,

because no matter what I say or do my husband is always proud of me, and loves me.

How did a blog about school turn into a mushy love post?
