Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

31, Reflections, & A Look Ahead

Hello lovelies!

I realize it’s Monday, and we have a week ahead of us, however it doesn’t feel too bad this week because:

1. It’s my birthday, and
2. Will and I both get Good Friday off!

Not too shabby.

Before we get into all that, though, let me hit some of my weekend highlights!

Friday Will and I were both off and had a very productive day.

I made it to the gym before 7, so it wasn’t too busy. I enjoy not having to share equipment. smile

Then, got ready and was able to shop at the grocery store in peace, get a fancy (read: cheap) watch at a local jewelry shop, as well as run a couple more errands all while Will painted our spare bedroom!

Afterward, we went downtown to a glass shop to get a piece cut for our entertainment center. Then we went and saw Draft Day!

I’m sure you’re shocked we went to see a football related movie. Ha

Friday was a busy and productive day.

Saturday was full of fun and just as packed.

I got an early leg workout in at the gym, followed by a little time with my sister and Layla.

Afterward, I got ready and Will and I made a trip to Lowe’s, and then headed to Norman for the red and white game!

It was a big crowd Saturday, making it all the more exciting. After that decisive and epic victory over Alabama last season, I think we are all pumped and ready for football.

After the game, I had Will take me to Cool Greens for my “birthday lunch.”

I’m a super cheap date. smile

We just bought another matching couch to accompany the one we just got in a few weeks ago, so I didn’t want to do anything over the top. Plus, honestly? It’s one of my favorite local places.

I got their skinny plaza salad. So, so good.

Afterward, we came home and had a relaxing and uneventful evening!

Yesterday I got to spend the morning with my family! I love them very much. We had a birthday breakfast, and Layla even sat by me which was a nice treat. smile

My sister got an action shot of us admiring artwork. haha

It's a Bird, it's a plane, it's a huge pic of food at Jimmy's Egg!

We missed church because breakfast was followed by a trip to Best Buy and a two hour nap (!!), so we will have to watch online this week.

The rest of the afternoon was far less exciting than the rest of the weekend, but it was really nice to relax and not do much!

I did, however, spend a couple hours in the kitchen prepping food for the week. More on that soon.

That afternoon I went over to my parent’s house and had birthday cake! I love my mom so very much. She made me the prettiest, springiest, most beautifully colored cake. smile

31

It was delicious.

So that was my weekend!

And here we are again.

And here I am, 31.

How did that even happen!?

Last year felt like a huge milestone, and I suppose it was. I felt old, but I also felt “official,” like I had finally come into my own.

I’ll leave you with a few random thoughts at the end of this post on life in the 30s this far, and would welcome your own comments, too!

But for now, let’s talk food this week.

This week we’re having:

-Vegetable lasagna (with zucchini as the noodles smile h
-Caprese salad
-Philly cheesesteak sandwiches (I’m having leftover lasagna)

Yum!

Now let’s talk posts.

This week we are talking about:

-How you just gained refrigerator rights
-Arms month continues! Sculpting sharp shoulders
-Thursday confessions
-How the Bible helps

So check in this week and don’t miss out!

I close with just a few random thoughts on the 30s (or lack thereof at times smile)

Share some of your own thoughts below! <3

1. I finally feel like I’ve arrived and have more of a seat at the table.

Unless it’s Thanksgiving with Will’s side of the family.

I’m pretty sure we will forever be at the kid’s table there. 

2. I’m still terrible with directions.

And feel like I might always be.

3. I’m more comfortable with who I am, who I’m not, and who I want to be.

4. Oddly enough, I feel way more comfortable and less self conscious about my flaws. While I looked better in a bathing suit 10 years ago, I’d probably rock it with more confidence now.

5. I’m a better wife.

6. I understand the importance of rest and a day off work sometimes.

7. I finally understand God’s grace.

8. I’m (slightly) better at putting on fitted sheets.

9. If I want a giant spoonful of peanut butter, I’m going to eat a giant spoonful of peanut butter. I trust myself way more and no longer fear self-sabotage. It comes with understanding moderation.

10. I realize birthdays are far better than the alternative and therefore appreciate each passing year.

So there you go! Now let’s enjoy our Monday!

More to come…
