Oh goodness…. thinking about this one kind of depresses me. In ten years, my oldest will be turning 20. Hopefully, we’ll be in our forever home, settled and happy. I’m honestly not sure where I see myself in ten years, or even where I want to be in 10 years. Our next decade was planned […]
Ugh. Ummm….. I used to be a nail biter, but I’m not anymore. Probably cussing. I have a mouth like a sailor. But you try to NOT have one when you’ve spent the past decade around soldiers and more soldiers. I don’t even hate my language because whatever. I do obviously watch my language when […]
Snakes. No joke, my biggest fear is snakes. They just creep me out. I don’t care for worms either, they’re just mini snakes. Ick. Slugs, lizards, etc etc…. eww. BUT when I was a kid, I was obsessed with Komodo Dragons. Seriously, I read about them in a National Geographic and just thought that they […]
Favorite Childhood Book. I loved reading The Outsiders when I was in school. Other than that, the Mandie books. <3 <3 <3 Here’s day 13-15 (Fav quote, a timeline of my day, and what’s in my bag) Here’s day 16 –> Dream Job.
Oh goodness…. thinking about this one kind of depresses me. In ten years, my oldest will be turning 20.
Hopefully, we’ll be in our forever home, settled and happy.
I’m honestly not sure where I see myself in ten years, or even where I want to be in 10 years.
Our next decade was planned for us up until a few months ago when my husband was Medically Retired from the US Army. So, now … the future actually is ours and we’re a bit unsure where we want it to take us.
Ugh. Ummm….. I used to be a nail biter, but I’m not anymore.
Probably cussing. I have a mouth like a sailor. But you try to NOT have one when you’ve spent the past decade around soldiers and more soldiers. I don’t even hate my language because whatever. I do obviously watch my language when talking to people I don’t know, or assume wouldn’t be comfortable with it. That’s just the polite thing to do and I of course don’t mind that.
Otherwise, I suck at cleaning. Does that count?! I hate it. I always think that I’m going to create a schedule & stick to it, but nope. Never happens.
I am awful when it comes to finishing projects. Unless I am in the modd for it, it wasw my idea, and I’m excited about it…. I probably won’t be excited to finish it… or even work on it… (We’ve lived here for 2 years now and our house still have paint stripes from testing colors on door frames).
That’s all I’ve got. I mean, I’m sure I have more, but it’s early, I’m sleepy, and I just can’t think. Happy weekend, you guys!!
Snakes. No joke, my biggest fear is snakes. They just creep me out. I don’t care for worms either, they’re just mini snakes. Ick. Slugs, lizards, etc etc…. eww. BUT when I was a kid, I was obsessed with Komodo Dragons. Seriously, I read about them in a National Geographic and just thought that they were the coolest things ever.
When I was growing up, I wanted to be a Teacher, a Pediatrician, a Nurse, a journalist, etc etc… except, I wasn’t super excited about any of them at the time. I’d just say it to say it… the path I thought I needed to choose.
Life sure had other plans for me. Instead, it said “You’re going to marry a soldier and you’re going to be a stay at home mom because you’re going to move a LOT and daycare costs a TON”.
I’m overall pretty happy with the plan life threw at me instead. I don’t have college loans, I went for a semester & a half on a full ride before quitting. It wasn’t for me. And you know what?! THAT IS OK! I am happy with my life and how it turned out. College wasn’t for me. Life had other plans.
As far as my dream job — goodness, I don’t even know. I have a pretty good life. My “jobs” (blogging and hustlin’ LipSense) are nothing but fun. I get paid to take selfies. It’s not all rainbows and butterflies, BUT it’s pretty darn good 🙂
Welp, I made it 13 days before totally messing up the order of this… Oh well. Here’s day 13-15.
Day 13: Favorite Quote: I’m a movie quoter, so I’m not really sure if I have an actual favorite quote.
Day 14: What’s in my handbag. It’s actually normal, boring stuff right now because I just swapped purses so I cleaned out the crazy stuff. So, wallet, ooops remover, gloss, tissues, bag of LipSense & card reader,
Day 15: A timeline of my day. This one varies depending ON the day, but let’s go with a Preschool day.
4-6am wake up, drink coffee, enjoy silence that’s not really silent because you have Missy barking to be let out, and the cat following you waiting for food, all while trying to make coffee.
6:30-7 wake up kiddos. They get ready and eat breakfast. David wakes up.
7:40 David takes Fin & Maddie to school. Owen watches cartoons. I shower.
8:20 Take Owen to Preschool.
9-12 Find something to do to kill time…. go home and clean a bit (but never a ton, because then I forget the time and go pick up Owen all covered in cleaning gunk. This is where I’ll grocey shop, or run errands, head to the post office to drop off orders, etc etc.
11:40 head towards Owen.
12:30 home from picking up Owen. Make lunch. Clean up house. Change clothes. Finish up whatever I was doing before I left to get Owen. Watch David & Owen play some games. Hang out til Fin & Maddie get home.
2:45 – 3 ish Fin & Maddie get home. Sometimes we’ll meet them at the bus stop & walk to the park, but for most days they just come home. We do chores, they get snacks, we talk about their day.
3-4 is just that…. chores, homework, chatting, hanging, snacks…
4:30 is when I usually start dinner, depending on what we’re having.
5-6 is dinner.
Then after dinner, we’ll either cuddle up and watch TV, watch Daddy play some games, play some board games and just spend time together.
About 6:30/7 the kids get sent upstairs to play and to shower if need be. David & I hang out watching TV, chatting about our day, etc etc.
7:45 bedtime snacks for the kids.
8-8:15 kids head to bed.
9ish, David and I head to bed (we’re old and wake up early).
And that’s the normal of our days. Sometimes David goes to class in there or appointments. Obviously days change depending on what’s happening, but that’s the basic normal day in our life.
If it’s Tuesday or Thursday, it’s pretty much the same minus me and Owen getting ready and leaving.
If I won the lottery, I don’t think I’d tell people. Haha. No, I’d pay off everything in our debt, buy land where we want to live (unsure yet) and build a house and then just live. We’d probably build more houses for family members to come live near us & help pay their stuff off, but really I think that’d be about it.
We’re logical people when it comes to our lottery winnings. 😉
EASY! Devon Sawa. I don’t even remember really crushing on him though, I was just a teenibopper that thought you were supposed to have cute boys posters on your wall.
It’s funny though, you guys… because other than seeing his cute little face in teenbop magazines, I had NO idea who he was or what movies he played in. I actually just watched Idle Hands the other day. We ordered it off of Amazon for super cheap (You guys know I love me some Amazon Prime!)
Hanson though — Taylor. DREAMY!
Followed closely behind the BSB & N*Sync of course. Justin Timberlake and Nick Carter ALL THE WAY!
Tattoos: I have stickmen behind my ears – one’s an angel, one’s a devil. My chest piece reads “two against the world” <-- my husband has a matching one. Anniversary present one year 🙂
I have one on my foot -- JACKR - family initials.
I have stars on my shoulder, both wrists have words wrapping around em...
I have my left forearm covered.
