Conversation #53: The year comes to an end…

This is going to seem so lame, but I’m sitting on the couch watching Rick Springfield sing “Jesse’s Girl” (LOVE it) while finally getting around to typing up my last blog post for the year.  I put it off all day!

I was actually at a beautiful wedding earlier with my hubby, but we left a little early because I was again suffering from a sinus headache/migraine (not sure which).  Anyway, I’m feeling a bit better now and I wanted to get in my last blog post of the year real quick.  I’m in CST so it is only 11 PM here even though the ball is about to drop in NYC. 

This has been a good year for me.  Blogging has been weird for me this year.  I quit for a while.  I got a new look.  Then I ran out of things to say (shocking I know).  Finally, I have a list of things to write about and I can’t seem to find the time and energy to just sit down and right them!  Maybe this next year.

I have also grown a lot internally, and I feel so blessed for the life God has given me.  It has been a long road at times, especially in my marriage, and I just feel like my husband and I have finally made it to a great place.  I know there will be more ups and downs, but right now we are good.  Here are just a few highlights from the last year:

January – took an unbelievable trip to the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, and we stopped at the White Sands National Monument and Carlsbad Caverns:

May – the hubby graduated from law school!!!

July – hubby took the bar exam (trust me, that was a milestone!)

November – hubby passed the bar exam (WooHoo) and we took our first trip out of the country to the Dominican Republic:

December – Hubby opened is his own law practice and we celebrated the holidays with family and friends

As you can see, much of the year was dominated by law school, and we are looking forward to a change of pace this year.  I wish all of you the best in the coming year, and I pray that God pour out His blessings on all of you.  See ya next year!

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: http://www.nauvoonews.com/nauvoo_photos.htm)

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 …
