Confession Friday

I have no lead up to this we'll just get to it. Haha.

I confess that I'm so sore. I had an aerobics class Wednesday morning and we did circuit training. I'm pretty sure she's trying to kill us. My abs and butt hurt so bad that I had to roll out of bed this morning (which still hurt) and I walk like I have a stick stuck up my butt because I can't walk normally. Ughhh.

I confess that my itunes is playing Third Day music and it's making me happy :)

I confess that I just looked over at Nigel absolutely passed out next to me on the couch and got a little jealous. Jake and I were talking the other night about how he has no worries, bills, or problems and the only thing that really sucked for him was no pizza in his diet.

I confess that I declared a 3-day weekend for myself. Having only one class on Fridays is already starting to be problematic.  When the time it takes me to drive there and back is almost as long as the class time itself, I'm not real motivated :/

I confess that I ate chips and salsa for dinner last night and then watched An Affair to Remember (add it to my list of favorite old movies!) while eating ice cream. In sweat pants. Typical girl move? Yes.

I confess that we've been able to have our windows and patio door open since Sunday and I'm LOVING it. I'm kind of cold right now which is amazing considering a week ago it was like 1249083409 degrees outside.

I confess that I already have like 6 baby names picked out. They change a little bit every once in a while but I'm sticking to them for the most we just need to get this school thing out of the way and find jobs so that there can be babies to name!

I confess that I made Jake another batch of rolo cookies Wednesday night at his request because of his bad day at work....and they are almost gone. Once Hanna gets here tonight (she's staying for the weekend!) I know they'll be gone for sure.

I confess that I need to vacuum the guest bedroom, read a little bit of homework, and work on my resource binder but instead I have 3 facebook tabs open and I'm blogging. Ohhhhhh the life of a college student.

Leave some of your confessions! Then I can read them and procrastinate some more!

Thankful Thursday

It's been a rough stretch lately and I've been super side-tracked and probably a big old it's time for one of these posts to remind me of how good I have it!

I'm thankful for my amazing, hard-working husband.  He is seriously just about the only person who keeps me sane some days.  He is so understanding and compassionate and I don't know how or why I got to be blessed with him as my husband.  All women should wait for a man like him :) I may be just a little biased but he really is the greatest.

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you." - 1 Peter 5:6&7  - I'm so thankful for these verses. It's been a rough few weeks with Jake's new job and things are getting pretty tight around here but the Lord is such a great comforter.  Cast all my anxieties on Him because He cares for me is a phrase that has been running through my head quite a bit lately.  God is the ultimate provider and I know He will provide us with our needs. It's such a blessing to not have to worry about how we're going to pay bills or this or that when money gets tight because He has always come through in the past and He is faithful!

I'm thankful for my classes and the ability to further my education.  One of my classes is spending about 7 hours a week at an adult center for adults with developmental disabilities.  They are honestly some of the sweetest people I've ever met and I'm thankful God has put them in my life. They teach me so much about so many things.  I get several hugs a day with people telling me "I like you!" or "You're my buddy/friend!" or "I like your shirt/hair/rings/etc." It's so amazing. They have so much love to give :)

I'm thankful for having those friends that you know you can talk to about anything and their view of you won't change and they won't go blab it to anyone else.  The older I get, the more I realize what a blessing it is to have just one person like that in your life.  It's such a good feeling to know that no matter what, that person is ALWAYS going to be in your life!

I'm thankful for my family and my in-laws :) They are such a supportive group of people and I know they'll always be there for Jake and I.

I'm also thankful that we have food! Because I'm hungry! Lunch time for me :)

Confession Friday

I confess that this week went by quickly and slowly all at the same time...and I feel like it was jam-packed full of stuff but I can't honestly remember a single thing I did. Besides Jake and I going over to Eric and Hannah's apartment to eat ice cream with them :)

I confess that I was happier than I've been in a long time just sitting with my husband, my best friend, and her husband at their apartment eating DQ. Just catching up on life. I love the fact that Hannah and I can catch up and rant while Jake and Eric play words with friends and have absurd conversations broken up by the fact that they're too distracted by the tv to have a fluid conversation. I will never understand how males function. But it makes me so happy to have "couple friends", especially since Jake and Eric are good friends on their own and Hannah and I are like the exact same person and bestest friends on our own :) It's so nice to all be good friends individually and as a couple. This probably makes no sense....I'm rambling.

I confess that I'm working my way through all the music on my itunes alphabetically by artist because I'm OCD and I got to The Spill Canvas the other day and remembered just how much I love that band. I love rediscovering my favorite music.

I confess that I think my husband is the absolute best husband ever and I can't wait to have children with him so he can be the absolute best father to them. He really is the greatest.

I confess this week has been an emotional one.  Boo.  It's so frustrating to wish you could go back and erase something completely from your life but then realize if you did that you wouldn't be where you are now. Gotta take the good with the bad I suppose. And God obviously had a purpose for it all...I just wish things could've turned out this way without all the hurt and complications.

I confess that the baby fever I blogged about a while ago (I think...maybe that's in my imagination) has NOT gone away.  I feel like everywhere I turn someone has kids, just had a baby, or just found out their pregnant. I want it to be my turrrrrrrrn! The Lord is teaching me patience lately...that's for sure.

I confess that I feel like it's the sweetest thing ever when Nigel(our cat) decides to be affectionate. Every day when I walk through the door he's waiting right in front of it so it's hard for me to even get in the door around him. He instantly is purring and just wants to be loved on. He also likes to cuddle up with me under the blankets when the AC turns on...because the air blows out at like 50 degrees and we freeze. He's the most affectionate cat I've ever met and I'm glad he's ours.

I confess that last confession is the reason I need children.  That kind of love for a child is normal...for a is creepy. Ughhhhhh.

I confess I was an unhappy little lady when the maintenance man for our apartment complex pounded on our door at 7:30 this morning to change the AC filter.  Jake and I were finally getting to sleep in (until 8:30....woohoo!) today and he ruined it. All for a 5 second change....7:30am seems a BIT absurd dude. Thanks for waking us up.  Jake fell back asleep almost instantly and I eventually did around the time his alarm should have been going off.  It never went off so we woke up at 9:05...good thing it was just set so Jake could work out and not for going to class or work or something!

I confess I can't handle this heat.  I have a nice 4-day weekend (score!) and it would be a really good time to go run errands or something but I do NOT want to leave my cool-ish apartment to face the sweltering heat. Yuck.

I confess that I'm way procrastinating on the homework that I need to get done today. I want it out of the way but I know it's at least 2 hours of work that I don't really want to do right now...buhhh.

Any confessions from you guys? Have a great long weekend!
