Today is a good day!

I am so excited, I just have to share...

1.  I just found out I am going to be able to go to camp with my Young Life girls this summer {I thought I wasn't going to be able to go because my company scheduled a biometric screening for me to work the same week! BUT, two other employees will be working it instead!} I really am so excited I can barely contain my excitement!

Windy Gap!!!

2. Right after finding out about camp, I found out that we can now wear open-toed shoes to work!!! This may seem silly to you but let me explain. I work in a printing plant so safety is a big deal and before today, all employees had to wear close toed shoes, and if you were out in plant you're supposed to wear steel-toed shoes.  This kind of put a damper on my shoe obsession because I couldn't wear my super cute peep-toed pumps and couldn't bring myself to buy anymore because I knew 5 days out of the week, I couldn't wear them.  So, for the last 8 months or so, I have been rotating three (yes, three) pairs of shoes; toms, brown zip up booties and what I like to call my emo/skater sneakers.  Not anymore!!! WHOOP WHOOP!

This amazing news couldn't have come at a better time either because this weekend (while Bobby is bachelor-partying it up) I will be going on my 'once every 5 years' shopping spree to update my wardrobe from college "How?" you may ask, "I thought you were doing Dave Ramsey's program???" ... gift cards and birthday money my friends.
hello lovers =)
I say yes to all.

Oh, and a fedora.

Blog Challenge

Remember that time I said I was going to do another blog game I was tagged in from my friend Cara? I lied. Well kind of. Sorry friend. Really I just am not that creative (or maybe just too lazy?) to come up with 7 random facts about myself.  Then I saw the 11 Challenge posted by Ashely at Run With Me and decided to do that one instead. =) It starts the sentence for you! How much easier can it get??? I figured this would be a good "in the mean time" post until we finish all our dual birthday celebrations (Bobby's birthday is today!) and I can post about them.

OK. Here we go.

I am... half Irish, half Italian.  It makes for quite an interesting personality and awesomely entertaining family gatherings.

I want... to not work anymore and have babies. =)


I have... a fabulous husband. {this was Bobby's input} ... but I absolutely agree.

i love this man.

I wish... I was Kelly Ripa and hosted Live! With Kelly.  She rocks and has The. Best. Job. Ever.

Here's how it would go down: Jerry Seinfeld is awesome and would guest star everyday, we would start each show Zumba-ing, Neil Patrick Harris would be the permanent co-host, Michael Buble would be my BFF, we would have fabulous guest stars that brought in fun animals (but never snakes), and I would get paid to chit-chat which I am a pro at.

 This could work.


I hate...

just kidding. =)

I'd have to say, at least currently, I hate working when it is sunny and warm out.  All nice days should be optional "work from home" {or optional "take the day off"} days so I can go find a pool somewhere and lay out.

I fear... snakes. Fear may not be a strong enough word. The mere thought of these nasty creatures evokes pure panic and hysteria in me. No joke.

I hear... Hunger Games is "the most AMAZING book ever" and that I should read it. But I haven't.

 ...and this may be why... what?!?

I search... for rental homes daily and I hate it. We are moving {again} in May.  Boo.

I wonder... when we will finally own our own home.

I regret... nothing. Well, I try not to. It's not that easy, but with the help of my Savior I know it is possible.

"For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death." 2 Corinthians 7:10
 
I love... cupcakes, way more than I should.

I ache... ALL. THE. TIME. because we are training for a half marathon and my body doesn't understand what the heck is going on {I wasn't a big runner before this}.

If this lady can do it, surely I can. How awesome is this pic!?!?! She rocks. {And is totally killing the younger girl behind her}

I always... have to have chapstick/aquaphor on my lips.  I hate the feeling of dry lips, it freaks me out.

I usually... am late everywhere I go.  It is a horrible habit.

I am not... 5 feet tall but sometimes I say I am anyway.  It's way easier than saying "four eleven and three quarters" because that usually leads to a discussion about how I may legally be a little person. But I'm not.

I dance... whenever I get the chance. {Side story/random fact: I was part of the hip hop dance team when I was in college.  I could totally pop lock and drop it which is basically how I made the team. At some point in my life it may have been my dream to tour with Michael Jackson and Beyonce.... OK and maybe it still is....}



I sing... along with my husband when he's playing at home and pretend I sound really good. He usually humor's me and tells me I sound great.

...but I do it anyway.

I never... go more than a day without talking to my mom. =)


I rarely... leave for work with my makeup done {or even on for that matter}.

I cry... sometimes when a cramp ruins my run.  I know... kind of silly... I get extremely frustrated and mad that I have to walk home... Everyone has their issues right?

I am not always... as graceful with my words as I would like.

I'm confused... on a daily basis. Usually because Bobby finds it highly entertaining so he tries to do it on purpose.

I need... a vacation but will not be able to take one until we are out of debt {maybe next year?}. Thank you Dave Ramsey.


I should... be working instead of typing this post. Whoops.

26 Candles


Woohoo! It's my birthday!
...and you better believe we'll be celebrating with cupcakes {hopefully}.
Gigi's cupcakes of course.
It's crazy that there will be 26 candles atop that little cake, being as though
I still think I'm 18...
Thanks for all the sweet, sweet birthday wishes,
I feel so loved and so blessed!

Weekend Recap & DIY Home Fragrance

This weekend we were finally able to slow down from all the traveling we'd been doing (mostly separately) and spend some much needed quality time together to just, be

Friday night was an impromptu date night to Yazoo, a local brewery here. We treated ourselves to a few beers and I talked Bobby's ear off {typical}.  I actually asked him if it is super annoying when I babble on because I think it would be, but he insisted he actually enjoys it. Hahah. What a guy. Anyway, Yazoo's new dark beers for this season are seriously delish and one is called Spring Puppy which made us both laugh out loud every time we said it.



Saturday afternoon was filled with absolutely nothing. Seriously. We didn't change out of our pajama's until about four to go for a run. It was awesome. 

Saturday night we went to a house concert our friend Larry hosted on behalf of his new venture, Cause A Scene Music, which highlights new artists and bands in the Nashville area.  This particular house concert featured The Vespers who are my new obsession. They are a young band made up of 2 sisters and 2 brothers who have found a way to mix folk, pop, bluegrass and roots music with beautiful spiritual touches and jumbled it all up into something that is truly amazing.  Music to my ears.  You should check them out.
This week we're preparing for some visitors {Bobby's cousin tonight and his parents this weekend!} and of course my birthday! More on that later.

Side note {that will delight your nose hairs}: With Bobby still out of town, I decided to get started on my spring cleaning last week.  In the midst of my cleaning frenzy, I tried out a DIY stove top potpourri I found on Pinterest and oh my, I'm in love. I wish you could insert smell somehow on the Internet because you need to know how amazing this stuff smells. It's a simple concoction of lemon, vanilla, rosemary and water.  All you need to do is combine all the ingredients and simmer on the stove. Done.

You should try it.
That's all.
