Conversation #24: Where in the world is Sassy Engineer?

Wow – I have been gone for two weeks!  Eek!  I didn’t mean to, I promise.  Life is has just been so crazy lately.  I’ll try to recap a bit for you.

Let’s see.  First, I went back to my hometown to attend the wedding of one of my best girlfriends from high school.  My date – another one of my best girlfriends from high school!  We were actually the guest book attendants.  It did sprinkle on us a bit, but it was still fun, and they were such a beautiful couple:


Don’t you just love her dress?  I adore it!!!

After that, I drove back with Doc Sis and the cutest boy in the world:



We went to the zoo, and it was hot!!!!!  Thankfully this zoo was designed with a lot of shade, but when it is over 100 degrees, shade doesn’t matter too much.

Then, we also got Hunky Law Graduate through the bar exam!


Now, I don’t ever for a second try to say that being married to a law student is as hard as being one.  However, it is a big part of your life and relationship.  I knew we would make it through, but I definitely didn’t spend much time with the hubby since oh, about the beginning of May (finals were always intense as well!)

Anyway, the hunky JD (juris doctor) hunkered down and studied every day for weeks, and I know he put his all into that exam.  He knows God called him to law, and God has been faithful every step of the way so I know He’ll be faithful now.  What a journey we have been on in our marriage.  This is the first time in the 5 years we have been married that neither of us will be in school.  You have no idea how excited I am about that.  Although, I will have to change my evening schedule from being “single” to married again!  I’m sure it will take a bit of adjustment (the hunky JD was always in night class and worked during the day).

I’m just so proud of him, and we are both excited to see what God has next for us.

Okay, that doesn’t sound like as much now that I have typed it out, but I promise, it has been busy.  Tomorrow, Hunky JD takes the MPRE (the last bit he needs to practice law), and then we celebrate!

Lastly, for your viewing pleasure, I show you my sweet nephew.  Every time before I have to leave him, I take a picture with me holding him.  Someday he’ll be too big, but until then you can see how much he is growing.  Oh how I already miss him (my sis and bro-in-law!)





Look at those precious curls!  Happy Thursday night :)

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

Conversation #205: About Me


I have no idea how often I will escape to this place, but since I recently added this ol' blog address to my Instagram Profile, I thought maybe I should dust her off and welcome any new readers.

I have so many thoughts rolling around in my head CONSTANTLY that maybe this would be a good spot again to release them, and keep me from online shopping too much during my lunch break ;)  I hear a faint AMEN from my husband.

Anyway, the title of my blog may lead people to make snap judgments about me or my beliefs, which is unfortunate, but also the society we live in at the moment.  First, it created a sort of catchy blog name, and I liked it.  And, yes, I am a conservative, but that label has sooooo many different meanings depending on what media outlet you last listened to so I thought maybe I would use this post to re-introduce myself to old friends and share a bit about how I have grown in the last few years.

I am Christian, Jesus Follower, Believer, Daughter of the King - w…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
