I’m going to be completely honest with you guys, these past two weeks I’ve been slacking on my writing. When I started my blog I told myself I’d stay on top of a writing schedule so that I wouldn’t feel like I was rushing to come up with content. Writing has always come so natural to me because I do it in the moment when I’m feeling inspired by something. It’s not that I haven’t been inspired lately, it’s the fact that I haven’t put forth the effort to sit down and write on a regular basis.
My plan starting in April is to get refocused! I have multiple resources that I can access at all times so I have no excuses to be slacking. So for now I’m just going to catch you up on what’s been going on in life! Spring is FINALLY here… I think! We just finished putting out the outdoor furniture so it sure as heck better be! I’m that person who breaks out their sandals the minute I’m over winter-in hopes that it will encourage spring to stick around. Needless to say I need to stay on top of getting regular pedis now because nothing grosses me out more than seeing nasty toenails. Nice weather also means you’ll find me grilling out as much as possible! That first day that it was in the upper 40’s I couldn’t get home fast enough to get the grill out. I called my mom on the way home that day and asked her where I could buy matches….and yes I refuse to use anything other than matches, my boyfriend hates it. Anybody else still call their mom anytime they have a question? Over the weekend when I was out shopping for some meat I’m pretty sure I called her 4 times in the matter of 30 minutes.
Can anybody else walk into the room with another person and be able to tell what the other person ate earlier that day? Yeah…didn’t think so.. My senses are INSANE! They have always been crazy strong. When my mom used to come pick me up from school, I could tell from the smell on her clothes what she’d been cooking for supper…no joke. Working with babies over the past few years having super senses hasn’t always been joyous…mommas you know what I’m talkin about.
Have I ever told you guys how obsessed I am with my dog? I think the older I get and the more I want children the crazier my obsession becomes. Every morning when I sit down to do my 20 minutes of personal development, Gunner sits in my lap and rests his head on the kitchen table…it literally makes my heart want to explode because it’s so sweet! He also has the most obnoxious obsession with licking and has a giraffe tongue(google a pic) so it feels like you just took a bath after he gives you kisses…it’s good times. My little guy just turned 6 this month and I can’t believe it!
With the weather getting nicer it makes me extra miss my family! We love making family trips to the pool and soaking up the sun while catching up on life. I’m pretty sure no one ever actually gets in the pool and goes swimming though. Now that we don’t all live as close to each other family get togethers don’t happen as frequently. I know it’s a part of life for people to move away and grow their own families but it’s still a hard transition to get used to.
Speaking of pools- I desperately need a vacation! I never understood how all these college students and 20-somethings can afford to go on spring break every year and travel every summer….it always makes me so angry. So this year we are determined to save up and make a vacation happen! I feel like there are two types of people when it comes to vacation. The people who book their days full of non stop activities so they are running around the entire trip and those who want to lay around the pool and have no obligations. I’m totally the second type. I want to small cabin by the lake where I can wake up every morning and drink a cup of coffee on the dock. Having the option to go out and adventure is more my cup of tea.
Recently I’ve been experiencing more migraines than usual. Over the past 3 months I’ve been consistently getting migraines around my cycle and it started to concern me. I haven’t been to the doctor in about 4 years for my migraines so I figured it couldn’t hurt to check in. After filling in my doctor he told me it was time to get back on medicine. That was exactly what I didn’t want to hear. But I knew I didn’t want to go back to how bad they used to be and if that meant getting back on medicine than that’s what I needed to do.
Life has been pretty great lately! God is doing some awesome things in my life. I hope you all are having a fantastic week. Thanks so much for stopping by-it means the world to me!
