Conversation #51: What a site I must have been

To the man in the car next to me anyway, as I tried to sing Christmas carols while drooling on myself.  I continued on my journey today in getting my teeth fixed (longtime readers may remember that I found out I had some issues about a year ago).  I still haven’t gotten any crowns, but I finally got all of the fillings taken care of cause by wonderful habit of clenching my teeth while sleeping.  I have worn off so much enamel.  I really am embarrassed!  But hey, since I have no pride, I will share that I had to get 5 fillings today.  Luckily I’m done, but my face hurts.  My mouth was propped open for an hour and a half, and it is till numb!  Thankfully it is wearing off now.

Anyway, so much has happened since I last wrote!  My husband has found an office space and is preparing to officially open his own practice.  I’m so excited for him, and I can’t wait to see what God has planned for him and us. 

We also ended up getting to go to our trip to the Dominican Republic, and it was AH-MAZING!!!!!!!  Seriously, I have had such bad post-vacation depression.  Normally I’m sad for a couple of days, but we have been back for two weeks and I’m still missing it.  It was such a wonderful, relaxing trip, and we got to see some great friends that live there.  I seriously think everyone should go.  Really, the trip deserves its own post, but I’ll do that in a day or two.



After the trip, my sister and brother-in-law came to visit, and that definitely helped ease the vacation blues.  However, I was just sad again after they left.  At least Thanksgiving was just around the corner!



It was a great Thanksgiving, but like everyone, I know I ate too much.  We watched lots of football and even got to cheer our alma mater onto to victory – they had to the conference championship this weekend!

That is pretty much all that is going on these days.  My job has been a challenge for me lately, but that is probably a post for another day as well.  Maybe some of y’all can give me some advice.  Hope everyone is doing well.  I have still been reading blogs on my phone, but I need to get better at commenting again.  I want to, but I always feel like there is something else I should be doing.  Like right now for instance, I should be painting on this hutch that is sitting in the middle of my kitchen, but it can wait another day.  Well, maybe it could just wait until now!  Talk to you lovely bloggy friends soon :)

Oh gawd, that was me all last summer--getting my teeth filled and protective coverings on them because I grind the enamel right off!! I do not envy you, I am so sorry.

And his own law practice?!?! That is awesome/scary/exciting! What kind of law is he planning on doing?

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…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from:

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

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 …
