Hi beautiful people of the internet. 

I’ve been a little more tired this weekend than usual. I think work was just a little too crazy for my liking but it hasn’t put any sort of damper in my days. Today we saw my in-laws and tomorrow, for Labor Day, we’ll be spending the whole day at my mom’s BBQing! Good food and family fun, thank goodness for days like these. I was extremely cranky today. Why? I blamed in on hunger…until I was fed and still acted like a total B-word to Scotty. I’m moody, mainly because I’m so tired and my mind was in other places. Sorry babe, but thanks for still making out with me. We took the dogs out on a walk and I felt so much better after. I needed to get out and do something I think. Instead of just lounging around the house, watching movies and drinking too much coffee. 

Update: I rescheduled my doctor’s appointment for September 10th so I have a fertility counsel that day. And if I could get a freaking doctor for Scotty, for heavens sake, than I can get a sperm analysis scheduled the day before. You wouldn’t believe the trouble I’ve had finding him a doc, in network, that’s taking patients. What a chore. 

So, because my life has been a whole lot of waiting games, homework and work life…here are some things I’ve been obsessing over. 
Songs: Shake it Off by Taylor Swift, Bang Bang by Jessie J ft. Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj and Come With Me Now by Kongos
Apps: Instagram (which you all know is my fave), Find Me GF (Gluten Free restaurant app for my niece) and Vine (because I recently rediscovered my love for those stupid, 6 second videos)
Books: Because school has started back up, I’m reading just one, called Project Marriage. It’s about a girl who made up a story about falling in love and marrying a guy (who happens to be her boss in real life) to her closest friend (like family) who is this elderly woman. When that woman dies she leaves her fortune to her. Only she leaves it to her “married” name and this young lady isn’t married so now she has so many days to get her boss to fall in love with her and marry her. 
TV shows: Revenge and Once Upon A Time are coming back soon and I will have something to throw myself into, since PLL ended. 

Happy Sunday…almost Monday here. Goodnight friends. xx

Happy birthday Luca. Party hard little man.

What is your favorite thing to do, to relax?

Go on a walk. I love it. :)

Went and saw #Leo this morning. His temp is down and he’s all smiles so hopefully he’ll get to go home today! 😍

Goodbye Wisdom Teeth - YouTube

Flashback Friday from when I had my wisdom teeth taken out. BAHAHAHAHA!

One more shift!

After tonight I have one more for this week. I’m so much more tired this week than I usually am. We have plans to go shooting Sunday and then spend the evening with my in-laws, Monday we’re going to my moms for a Labor Day BBQ. Some time with our families will be good. And a day off for Scotty is exciting too, especially because of all the extra hours he’s been working.

Ask me things guys, it’s gonna be a long night here.

Hey guys. LOOK AT LITTLE ESAH!!! She was so little. I could cry.

It’s 10:30 pm and Esah is going to sleep finally. We had pancakes, Esah and Scotty played minute-to-win-it with crackers, then we did their ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Now we’re all exhausted and ready for school in the morning. I love these two so much.

Sweating balls after a 4-mile walk in triple digits. Seriously this 100-110 degree weather in the Midwest is KILLER! The humidity makes it ten times worse. But hey, I got my butt up and that’s more than I’ve done in a while. Tomorrow is going to be strength training. Bring it on. 

Go me.

I will never trust a person who tells me not to eat raw cookie dough.

All I ask in a friend is that they workout with me when I ask, never back out on plans, eat too much pizza while cuddling under a blanket on the couch while having Harry Potter marathons, and not like all the same people I don’t like. Is that so much to ask?

Hi guys. I know I’ll kick myself for saying this later but school doesn’t seem that bad this semester. I’m already cringing thinking about how badly I’ve probably just jinxed myself. I’ve been on the search for possible internships and job openings in or around our area. Eh, I’m hopeful. 

Scotty and I have been dealing with a lot of drama on his family’s side. It doesn’t really have to do with us directly but it is effecting us. I married a very sensitive man ya’ll, a sensitive man who is also emotional and stubborn. This guy is so conflicted right now and so I’ve been trying to help ease the troubles any way that I can. (Whether it be by keeping him occupied with house stuff or bedroom activities ;) the man is staying busy). How, as a wife, do you calm a storm that has little to do with you? I ask my husband all the time how he’s feeling about the situation, what I can do to make things easier, or even if he just wants to vent. Whatever I’m doing, it seems to be the right thing. Family (our families anyhow) are either at a ‘very low-key, we’re not seeing each other’ side of the spectrum or the ‘we’re about to kill each other and crap just got real’ side of the spectrum. There is really no in between. 

I keep trying to call to make an appointment for Scotty to have his sperm analysis, only things keep happening. First he had to change doctors because he changed insurances, then he had a problem with his foot that he needed to go back to his podiatrist to look into, lastly I’ve called twice when they had stopped taking calls. Do you have any idea how annoying that is?! Oh well. I’m calling in about ten minutes so hopefully there are no interruptions with simply making an appointment. With that being said, my appointment had to change and I now go for a fertility treatment counsel on September 10th. I’m really just wanting to know more about my options and what I can do to get the ball rolling. 

Okay since I have an appointment to make, lunch to eat and terms to study I should probably do that. HAPPY TUESDAY! (and if you’re watching the PLL Finale tonight because you’re one of the cool kids. I’M TOTALLY LIVE TWEETING IT ON MY TWITTER!) 

XOXO
