Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Thursday Things, 9 April 2015

Last Saturday I got to meet Marisa in person!

>Proof we met in real life. <img src=">

When I found out she was going to be in Oklahoma I jumped at the chance to meet (because when is anyone ever in Oklahoma that doesn’t already live here!?).

We’ve been friends since The Nest days, so it was exciting to actually meet after all these years.

We had breakfast at Chick-Fil-A and talked for hours. It’s funny how natural conversation can come even from only knowing someone online. It was like we were old friends catching up, and I suppose that’s what we are!

Around the Corner
My big 32nd is right around the corner.

When did I get so old and grownup!?

Will’s parents came up to celebrate early and left me with a big, fat strawberry cake with vanilla frosting.

Early birthday cake

It’s made with fresh strawberries and diet sprite instead of oil and eggs (at my request. I’m the only person crazy enough to want that for their birthday cake) so it’s healthy, right?

I’ll be hanging out with Will and my parents this weekend, so more celebration to follow.

And by celebration, I mean unhealthy food. Ha!

In honor of 32...
I think we need a TBT pic today.

This one comes courtesy of my sweet 16.

Remember the days when we used to go to tanning beds religiously and not worry about skin cancer?

Good times (except not).

My parents threw me a surprise party. Such a kind act. Maybe I’ll tell you that story one day.

There’s always a story.

Couch-less Potatoes
Sooo, we bought a couple couches last year to replace the hand me downs my parents graciously gave us when we moved back from Kuwait.

Actually, we kept the love seat, but got rid of the couch.

It was kind of a sad day. Will and I spent a lot of quality (haha) time watching tv and napping on that couch, even before we got married!

I was a little sad to see it go.

The Littles were sad too. We don’t let them get on the leather furniture, but they had free reign on the old couches, so they were sad to see them gone, too!

So yeah. Kind of the end of an era.

Road Tripping
With all these trips with Will’s parents to check out RVs, I’m kind of read to be old enough to retire and explore the good old U S of A too!

More RV fun with the inlaws

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to fast forward life. However, I now totally get the appeal of buying a pull behind and seeing the nation.

Totally down for that in 2035.

Spring Cleaning
The office is done!

Now onto our bedroom closet.

It’s long overdue.

That’s our project for a few hours this weekend.

The fun of being an adult.

Fanning the Flames

I almost lost my mind last weekend at the gym.

I was the only one in the cardio section. I didn’t plan on washing my hair that day, so I didn’t want to completely sweat buckets.

As such, I turned on the fan and hopped on the elliptical.

Unspoken gym etiquette, at least at my gym, is that most people ask those already in the cardio room if they’d be agreeable to the fan being turned off.

Never just turning it off.

Ten minutes into my workout, a kid came into the room, turned off the fan, and started running on the treadmill right in front of me.

I almost lost my mind.

I usually don’t get bothered by that sort of thing… But I did that day!

“Do you want to blow dry all the sweat out of my hair since you decided to turn the fan off!?!!” I wanted to scream. ask kindly.

He was watching SpongeBob Squarepants, which only made me madder.

Which made me workout harder.

Which made me sweat all the more.

Which defeated the purpose of trying not to sweat too much.


And yes, I did end up washing my hair.
That’s it for today, sweets! Check in tomorrow!
