Lark Versus Owl




(Shirt: clothing exchange  Necklace & Skirt: Goodwill  Shoes: Plato’s Closet)

I am, without a doubt, a morning person. At times, I see this as a curse. I see people sleeping in and get so jealous of their ability to disregard the sun. I am up before sunset (really missed a career path as a farmer). My husband is a night owl. He likes to stay up late, watching movies and playing video games. It is a challenge finding time to hang out with each other. Unfortunately that time usually happens after the kids go to bed, so I end up staying up later than I would like and therefore get less sleep. I have determined, though, that this year I will attempt to go to sleep earlier than him, even if that means we have less hang out time. Because we all know, my brain will still be awake at dawn regardless of when I went to bed.

Married to a Bean Pole

My husband is skinny. And not at all by choice. He would love to gain weight if he could. It’s such a weird concept for me, since I am “bigger boned” and pretty curvy and wouldn’t mind having his problem. For the first time in his life, he is actually starting to gain weight. Since I am still trying to shed a couple baby pounds, we have decided to meet in the middle at 148 pounds. I am only five pounds away and he is six. I am determined to win, although going down seems SO much harder than going up. I’ll try to keep you posted on our stiff competition.

Not Dead Yet!

Hey ya, Party People! It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I took a week off for Christmas and that week turned into, well…five. I didn’t mean to stop blogging for that long, but to be honest the break was nice. I wasn’t super busy over the holidays (although my kids have been sick for the last two months…grr!), but never felt the desire to sit at the computer for longer than five minutes. It was lovely. But during that time, I was still creating outfits and taking pictures, so I have stuff to post for your viewing pleasure. And I’m back, fresh and renewed! (And how the heck is it almost February already!?!)

I Feel Like A Frog In A Pot Of Boiling Water

I love Facebook. I love the ability to stay in touch with people and spread word of things quickly. But I’m wondering why Facebook has felt the need to change so much. Little by little, they’ve taken things away, so now we are left with a completely different Facebook than we started with. In fact, I hardly remember the Facebook I started with, but I DO remember that I liked it better. Just bring it back!!!

Ten Facts

Ten Random Facts About Me:

1-I used to sell the sandwiches from my lunches in elementary school to the highest bidder. They were that good. I guess my mom just has a knack for making stellar sandwiches.

2-Jesse (my husband) is the one and only person I’ve ever kissed.

3-I am crazy decisive and love making decisions.

4-I have a talent at rewriting the words to songs. Wayne Brady ain’t got nothing on me.

5-I’ve never been in a limo.

6-I hate having my sheets tucked in because it is absolutely necessary for one foot to escape at any given moment.

7-Just the thought of going “caving” or scuba diving gives me a panic attack, which leads me to believe I’m more claustrophobic than I ever knew. On the flip side, I would go skydiving in a heart beat.

8-I’m a lousy gardener…oh wait, everyone knows that. ;)

9-I worked at a restaurant after college and hated it.

10-We didn’t have TV growing up, so I am now a bit addicted to watching television.

Dapper Gents

If you know me in real life, you know that I have super random, crazy thoughts ALL the time. Here’s one of the latest:

I love seeing the Mormon boys (I realize they are all men, but they’re all younger than me, so I guess I can call them boys…yikes, I’m old) walking around town. They look so cute in their white shirts and ties. And I thought, what if they wore bow ties instead? Wouldn’t that be the cutest thing? They would be the most dapper gentlemen ever!

Dude, I have so many posts just waiting to put up on the blog, but I have not had the time to sit down and write anything. Simon had surgery on his Achilles on Monday to have it lengthened to help him run. He’s been in a bit of pain and hasn’t walked on it yet, but he is as cheery as ever. I’m certainly thankful for that happy little boy. How’s your week going?
