TodayI..wanted to get back on track with my blog posts. Just to let you in on a little confession..I actually made this week’s posts last week because I knew I was going to be going crazy with the big move. This past Saturday it happened. We actually moved back in with my parents even though we said we would try to do it without them…But, gotta love that they were right when they said, ” You’ll be back!” I still see that look on my dad’s face. That look that says, “I told you so!” I hate to admit it, but he was right. I mean..I guess we could’ve done it on our own, but it just would’ve taken a WHOLE lot longer…and RENT just adds up, especially when you live in Southern California and near the beach. Sometimes, you just gotta suck it up and do what you gotta do. I think my husband feels like he failed at providing for us! But, I’m constantly trying to assure him that by making this decision, it will help us in our future! And, that’s all I could ever ask for. I’m so thankful that he’s decided this because sometimes when we are humbled, those are the times we grow the most! Naw what I mean?!?
Anyway, where was I..Oh, yah..Saturday. It was a long, tiring morning/afternoon, but luckily we celebrated with some good eats!
And..on Sunday, we rested.
I’m looking forward to more routine posts this week. Eek! Sorry for last week. There are no excuses. The good thing is..my sister is back from Tahiti! She was gone for so long and I never missed anyone so much (except for when Eddie was in the military.) Welcome back sis! This past weekend was cray cray..as some people like to say. My husband did and I enjoy a nice dinner at a Brazilian restaurant. Mmm.. meat! The one good thing about Paleo..you can eat all the meat you want! Nom, nom, nom! Happy Monday everyone!
Pardon the late post. I’m still recovering from an exhausting, yet fulfilling weekend. Today my hubs has the day off so we spent the day at the beach and tanned it up! Now, we are getting ready for din din..he’s actually cooking right now and i’m literally starting to drool just smelling it. Mmmm..so hungry. Ever since we started the Paleo diet, I’ve been SO hungry..all the time! I don’t think it’s normal, but gotta stay committed! Well, hope you all had a fantabulous weekend. Looking forward to a new week and more life celebrating!
Happy Monday err’body! I just finished cleaning my place, making lunch for the husband, showering, vacuuming, and managed to have time to watch a couple episodes of a new show I started on Netflix. Lol. I feel on top of the world right now!!! Any how, hope your weekend went well. Ours was pretty eventful. We went to a super cute bridal shower and celebrated a 25th anniversary in San Diego. Eddie also won his softball game on Sunday..I have to say, I’m enjoying going to his games every week and cheering him on. Next next weekend, I’m excited to cheer him on at the Tough Mudder race he’s been preparing for. Here’s a video of what he’ll be doing.
Ah! I’d be so scared, but I’m kinda jealous. Hope your week is awesome!
A great weekend indeed! We celebrated Eddie’s first Father’s day! Hip hip hooray! He was really looking forward to it and I hope it turned out better than he expected. We also got out of the house and got to spend quality time with friends. We are so blessed. Happy Monday!
So, I finished Seasons 1-4 of Gossip Girl (Too bad Season 5 isn’t on Netflix) and now I’m on to starting Mad Men. Don Draper said this quote in one of the first few episodes and for some reason it stuck with me:
“Advertising is based on one thing: happiness. And do you know what happiness is? Happiness is the smell of a new car. It’s freedom from fear. It’s a billboard on the side of a road that screams with reassurance that whatever you’re doing is OK. You are OK. “
Is this what happiness is to you and me? Or is it all a big illusion? There are those “things” that make me smile, like the smell of a new car, the realization that you’ve lost weight without even trying, the sight of colorful balloons, finding a cute item of clothing on sale, etc…but is that what happiness is? To me, happiness is simple. Look around. Look at your life. All of it…the good, the bad, and the ugly. Happiness is the blessing of a life worth living, no matter how chaotic, challenging, or boring it can be. We need to look at the life we have in order to appreciate what true happiness is. Now, I know not everyone’s life is peachy keen and we all have trials and tribulations. But, look on the bright side, if it weren’t for the breath of life we take each day, we wouldn’t be able to experience it otherwise. Do you know what I mean?
Hi everyone! Hope your weekend went well.
Mine was semi-productive…
cleaned the apartment up a bit, started to clear out the nursery and make room for a crib, assembled the crib (woohoo! Go eddie!), did 4 loads of laundry, watched some softball, enjoyed some BBQ and had time to blog! That is a successful weekend to me. I like the feeling of getting things done. This week I am looking forward to a stress-free week at work with no boss in town (woohoo again!) and a Valentine’s surprise that Eddie is supposedly planning. I have no idea what it is or where we are going, but it’ll hopefully make the work week go by faster!
Have an inspiring one!
