Sadie was so well behaved on tonight’s walk and I’m still in shock. She didn’t even go crazy when a neighbor dog started barking at her, she usually gets so mad and acts like a big bad pup. I’m so proud! Of course, Coon was a perfect angel, as he always is. 

Tomorrow is my mother-in-law’s birthday and like I have done for everyone else so far this year, I’d like to talk about her a bit. 

She is so supportive, funny, kind hearted, and she is one tough mama. She’s incredibly independent and strong willed. I love her! I’m lucky to have an awesome relationship with Lourdes. She and I can talk for hours and she’s helped us through some rough times. Not only that but she would do anything for her family! She’s an inspiration. 

Happy Birthday mama Lourdes, we love you!

Scott took me out for Hibachi. So worth the $50 and the pants that our now unbuttoned. It was so delicious. We haven’t had Hibachi since the early years of high school and it was so good! The guy was hilarious and we had so much fun! I even dressed cute haha. 

We’re having a good night, spending time together and we’re headed home to take our furbabies out for a walk because it’s so nice. 

TGIF!

I’ve had the most intense romantic feelings for Scotty and I think I talk about him quite a bit already ;)

The biggest fight I ever had was with my brother-in-law. Now I’ve had some pretty terrible wars but this one was the worst! He was scary and thank God Scott was there! I don’t think I’ll go in detail here but I’ll say that I think it was as bad as it was because he and I have always been so close, best friends (he’s how I met my husband).

I did not read through these questions as preparation. Yikes! The first time I had sex was with Scotty, on our first night in our own place (6 ish months before getting married). I was TERRIFIED but also so ready. We had waited and waited and it was so hard for me to stick to my word. He was sweet and gentle (sorry for the tmi) and it was a little awkward for like a half second and then PERFECT. It was everything I hoped it would be.

Oh goodness. This story could potentially be the longest ever but short version, best friend used me. When I explained how I felt she decided we shouldn’t be friends then, she then spent a great deal of her time (this was two years ago and she still continues to do this) spreading rumors and making herself a victim. She fools people and it used to hurt until instead of hurting it just became extremely irritating! I’m better off without people who take advantage of me!

I’m most proud of my marriage, truly. I know people think that’s maybe a little cheesy or even annoying but I am. We are so strong together and have always been an awesome team, which I’ve found to be extremely important in hard times. We’ve made our families proud so far and have always earned an honest living. I’m thankful that my husband and I can talk about anything and disagree about most things but never once belittle the other person or judge them. We respect and accept each other 100%. And that’s pretty awesome!

California, for our honeymoon, was an experience…to say the least. We had such little money that we didn’t do much besides go to a Chargers Game (duh) and we even had to stay with my family. Regardless of how broke we were we did not want to miss our honeymoon. We saved every bit and drove the whole way- 18 hours straight through, only stopping for pee, gas and to wake up. It was special because it wasn’t perfect and we still had such a beautiful time.

My worst fear always changes when people ask because I honestly don’t know one fear that totally trumps my other fears. I’m terrified however that I won’t remember the people I love one day, I’m afraid of being an elderly lady who is completely dependent and can’t remember things. I’m terrified that I won’t even notice it and that by having these issues, I’ll hurt people I love. I’m scared of my health as an elderly woman. No joke.

My stepmom found this in my 8 year old brother’s journal. 

He’s going to be just fine in this life.

Truth be told, I’ve never been as worried about grades as I am this semester. I usually have the “as long as I pass I’m okay” attitude but recently I’ve been so anxious about getting my grades up. I’ve always been an average student, a lot of the time even struggling for Cs and Bs. I used to be so ashamed of that but I’m not so much today. However, I’ve been going crazy trying to bring up the two Cs I have. I am even failing one class and it’s a difficult class that I have no interest in whatsoever, Financial Accounting. Now that’s one class that I truly just want to pass. I have to. 

Anyways, I’m  going to get through this, I have to. 

The "15 Second Kiss" Experiment - Fierce Marriage

the20somethingwives:

This is one of the more powerful things I’ve read about marriage. It made me go, “oh my goodness duh, how have I not thought about this before?”

My husband and I are extremely busy people and a kiss turns into a routine things, leaving the house- quick kiss, going to bed- quick kiss, heading out for the day together- quick kiss. Intimate moments (yes, sex), when we actually share a real, long kiss I always feel like I need it. I realize most of you must be thinking, uh duh it’s kissing! But it’s the closeness that gets to me, a closeness you don’t feel in those routine, without a thought, kisses. It reminds me of certain feelings and boosts my mood to a new level. 

I always tell my husband that I love kissing him, really kissing him but I’ve never noticed why nor have I ever seen it in actual words. I think this is an awesome idea and something I definitely want to try. 

-Veronica

I found this today and wow…it’s so sweet. 

I’m going to make bad choices.

By that I mean I’m going to eat something horribly bad for me.

Happy Happy Happy

Okay guys I have good news and potentially better news. 

- I’m not half bad at Tennis. 
- I’m working Children’s Lifetime Sports Academy this summer.
- I’m actually scheduled to work at my second job this weekend. 

I emailed my adviser asking her to add a class to my summer semester (in hopes that this would allow me to qualify for Financial Aid) and she did. She added Children’s Lifetime Sports Academy, which is actually not a class but does count as credit! Basically I’m staff for a kids sports camp. The best part is that this is something that will look awesome on resumes and I’ve wanted to do it for a long time. It had always conflicted with my schedule but today she told me she signed me up! I re-submitted my summer financial aid request form so my fingers and toes are crossed. It’s just way to expensive to pay out of pocket right now. I need this so I’m hoping good things will come from it. Scotty gets off early tonight so we’ll get to have dinner together and hopefully walk the dogs if it stays warm enough. 

Hope your Wednesday is pretty great. xx

This whole ttc thing

It gets to be even more difficult when we work so much! We need a getaway!

By getaway I mean, I really want to lock ourselves in the house and place a “do not disturb” sign out front.

Excuse us, we’re trying to make a baby.

…back to work…

I don’t thank Scotty enough for peace. When I first started working nights it was really hard for us to get used to. He would try to find reasons to wake me up because he was lonely or bored during the his days off and he would make too much noise and/or come in and out of the room a lot, so I never got much sleep after work. And then I would do the same thing to him on my nights off because I couldn’t sleep during the night anymore. It didn’t take us long to get into the swing of things though and he’s so good to me and makes sure that everything during the day is taken care of. He’ll even make sure I have food for as soon as I get up, he’ll wake me up if I am oversleeping (which is often) and he goes out on his days off to keep busy and keep from waking me up. I’ve found things to do during the nights that I can’t sleep, like reading new books or watching shows on my laptop with my headphones. It sucks to have opposite schedules but sometimes it works out and I’m so thankful for my husband and how well he handles the stress and annoying little things that come with us working totally opposite shifts. 

I thought about that today because I heard him come home from break to eat but I was too tired to actually get out of bed. He peeked his head in to check on me and decided to give a kiss on the forehead. 

One of the things I’ve found most difficult about marrying at a young age is that we have very busy lifestyles, as in going to school AND working, but also working more than others because we don’t make enough before graduating. There have been weeks when we didn’t even see each other and those are hard. This is why quality time is so important. 

-A Wife. 

I think I’ll mow my lawn at 2 am and see how my neighbors feel about that!

I love my job, absolutely love it and there are only two people out of the many people in my department that I don’t enjoy working with. Tonight this lady pushed me to my breaking point. I don’t understand why people want to make their job a difficult place to work at. And I don’t get why you would want to push your coworkers away considering how much time you spend with them. 

Regardless of her behavior, I put a smile on and got over it because life is just too short and I wasn’t going to let one woman ruin my whole night. 

But I can rant here right?
