It’s been a crazy week, and I feel as though I’ve been going full speed ahead without a moment to catch my breath.
Which is funny, especially when you read tomorrow’s post.
(Spoiler alert: It is about me getting a speeding ticket!)
Um, I’ve been trying to slow down yet it seems like this week has been against me and is all about going full bore, full steam ahead!
Here are a few random bits of fun I want to share with you today!
Mainly because Thursdays are usually my “free posting” day, where I don’t really structure it and just do whatever I want.
And usually don’t write until the day of, either.
Hey, perhaps I do my best work under pressure?
1. The last few weeks Will and I have been trying to connect with a Life Group
A Life Group is basically like a Sunday school but much more relaxed. They meet at various times and usually at people’s houses.
We’ve been going to Life Church for a long time now but haven’t really taken that next step, though we’ve needed to.
We tried our first one last week, and can I tell you something funny?
It sort of felt like a blind date.
I put on better perfume than normal, and Will wore cologne.
I wore my favorite makeup colors, and we both freshened up before we left…
But seriously- it was like we were trying out a new couple friend to see if we would be compatible.
Perhaps you’ve done something similar?
Because that’s just crazy talk.
But it’s true. We totally put on the ritz.
Anyway, the group was so nice and welcoming.
We are trying another one tomorrow, and can I be honest? I’m not thrilled about going to a group that meets on Fridays. However, I’m going in with an open mind!
But seriously. The Fridays thing.
Does that mean they’re older and don’t care about a nice Friday night out anymore?
Closer to our age, which means perhaps we should not care about a nice Friday out anymore?
Or maybe they’re like way younger?
Kids are invited so maybe these are the young 20 something’s that have kids and find Friday nights work great so they can get out of the house for an hour without having to frantically search Care.com for a legitimate babysitter.
And not the 53 year old that smelled like kitty litter and wore that creepy cat sweater like the one they had last week.
Hmm, it’s a toss up. All I know is- I’m way too old to try to be young and cool again.
I’m an old soul.
I’m just old.
Case in point: It’s 90 degrees out and I’m huddled up in my office wearing a sweater.
And 2. I just can’t get on this whole “amazeballs” wagon.
Is this a real thing now? Like the new awesome? Why can’t I grasp this expression in all its “cool” glory?
I just can’t…
Gosh I’m old.
2. Enough about that. Let’s talk about this week’s big accomplishment instead.
Dealing with Ritz crackers.
I typically can’t keep them in my house.
Um, I’ve known this since the beginning of time.
But lately, I’ve been totally mature around them- for Will’s sake (he’s the one that eats them). He went through an entire box without me mauling a single roll.
And then I bought another box two weeks ago.
And this time?
Not as lucky.
I can’t be sure, but I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten an entire roll throughout the last 2 weeks- which, by the way, should be praised and applauded.
Take a look- two full rows remain, and most of the third.
Two weeks later!
Thank you very much!
That is amazeballs, assuming I was into that word, or course.
Because everyone knows the second you open up a roll they’re inevitably going to be eaten in a single setting.
Oh- and speaking of- did you know Ritz sells mini boxes now!?
They’re the same amount of crackers as in a normal size box, but they break up the rolls into 8 instead of 4.
Much better if you’re going to indulge a bit.
3. Boot camps have sort of stalled out this week because of rain.
I typically take 2 days off a week, so I took Monday and Tuesday since it was a downpour, and worked out at the house Wednesday and Thursday.
My dad hit the gym, and Will?
Sweet Will slept.
God love him.
I have a new workout for you guys that I hope to post soon! It was rough and definitely worth sharing!
4.I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get super pumped for fall.
Can you believe we’re already halfway through August!?
Just typing that sends glee throughout my entire being. I am so excited for football season and all my favorite things. I am so so excited about this fall and winter.
Plus Layla will be so much more fun this year. She was still fairly young and boring last Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. This year should be so much more fun.
Hmm… I wonder if I can talk P into dressing her up as Dorothy and making Boz Toto?
Again- perfect example of something that would be considered “amazeballs...”
But I just can’t get there.
5. Speaking of fall, can I also tell you how excited I am to have Fall Primetime TV back in my life?
I like to think Will and I aren’t huge TV watchers, but we definitely do have several shows we like to DVR. However during the summer we sort of sputter out and fall into a TV watching rut.
I cannot even tell you how many reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond we’ve watched on TV land.
Oh my, we’re old.
That? Is not amaze… Well- you know.
Let’s not tell our new
couple friends Life Group we’re this boring, yes?
More to come!
