Blah Days.

Truthfully, I’ve been trying all day to think of something worth blogging about that involves visuals but that takes me 5 minutes.


So instead, I am going to tell you about what’s been going on today that is not that exciting at all. I’m sure some of you wanna see the great things I got for my birthday (trust me they are great) but that’s probably not going to happen until tomorrow or Thursday. And I also just thought of this: I wouldn’t be completely honest if I only posted super engaging and fun things all the time, cause that’s not how life is. Blah days are inevitable, and necessary.

Wanna here the most boring part of  my morning? I finished my taxes. Blah.

BUT, we are getting back over $4,000 dollars. So holler atcha girl (is that super tacky? I don’t care. People can know about my money).

I am pretty pumped up about this return (thanks to my son being born last year) because now Daniel and I can enjoy our 2nd year anniversary and not worry about spending money we don’t have. I think our plans are to go home to Miami and stay on the beach for a weekend. We are also going to use a huge chunk of it to continue to chip away at the student loan debt we have. RESPONSIBILITY!

In other news, Abram spilled my coffee on our new (old) rug that Daniel’s granny gave to us. So now I’m gunna have to do a little steam cleaning. Blah.

Our house is a mess, and it is beckoning me to straighten it up. Blah.

I should also probably take a shower. Blah.

Have you had a blah day recently? Do you accept those days and appreciate them for what they are or do you hate them with a fiery passion?


Happy Birthday To Me!

A quarter of a century. Scary. So far today has been a great day, and the birthday festivities started last night. I got home from leadership class to find that my craft room was transformed! The organization is fantastic, and I’ll be posting pictures of it this week.

This morning after I took Daniel to work, I received an email from him with a clue to the beginning of a birthday scavenger hunt. I’m about to leave the house to go on adventure. I will post all about it tomorrow!

Happy Birthday to me!

The End of the Week Thankful List.

“You can’t just eat garbage!” – what I said to Abram this morning after finding a rapper in his mouth that he took out of the garbage without me seeing.

Things I am Thankful for This week

1) Abram’s health- even though he is almost completely healed from some nasty bronchitis and a double ear infection, it could have been worse. There’s a plethora of things that could be wrong with him, but that is not the case. I am so thankful for that.

2) Food in our house- Daniel only gets paid every two weeks, and that last paycheck was used for bills. So this weeks menu has been really scarce, but I know that compared to most of the world, my pantry is overflowing. We never go hungry.

3) A great mom- we had some good talks on the phone this week. Lots of laughter, which hasn’t happened in a while.

4) Good friends- My friend Michelle turned 26, another year for a beautiful person. I’m also thankful for my friends here in Lake City. Livin’ life together. Oh, and my friend Kay gave me a great pair of tan suede boots. I had been wanting some for a long time.

5) Lazy Wednesday- Kim took Abram for the day, and I didn’t do ANYTHING. I watched 6 episodes of glee and ate chicken fingers. I really needed some physical rest, so it was awesome.

6) A great mother-in-law- for reasons mentioned in number five, but also because she is always helping us.

7) Fitting into an old dress- I managed to put on a pre-pregnancy dress yesterday and it didn’t look completely terrible. I still have a long way to go, but it was great encouragement.

8 ) Ruby Tuesdays- they sent me a birthday coupon for a free burger. It was delicious. And free, which was mainly the best part.

9) Good talks with my hubs- some weeks marriage involves a lot of talking and figuring things out. We did it together, and with great communication. It’s so worth it, and I love him the most much.

10) Productivity- I conquered a decent amount of things this week, and I feel accomplished. That is always nice.

11) My hometown- for being hilarious. I loved the  “Sh*t Miami girls say…and guys” youtube videos this week. They nail it and make me miss home so much. As much as I fight it, I will always be a Miami girl.

12) Motivation- So many people have encouraged me through their kind words this week to keep blogging because they enjoy reading. That really helps and keeps me focused.

So what are you thankful for?
