Ten Things I Said While Handsome Was Watching Football. (aka Things I Would Tweet If I Had Twitter).

(aka The Conversations I Had With Myself During SNF (Sunday Night Football)).

Today is the first time I ever seriously considered Lasik: I was trying to find my laptop charger, realized my eyes hurt, and hurried to get my contacts out before my computer died!

Stop on this channel! I want to know what show it is. Oh, amazing race? I hate that show, but the place looks cool. Yeah, somewhere in the NW I guess. 

I'm not into the outfits this year. Last years vintage styled ones were better.

Honey, please don't make me go to work tomorrow. 

We totally should have stopped for donuts for dessert on the way home.

Today I decided what to buy you for Christmas. And I'm not telling you what it is. 

Do you think people actually like pumpkin spice lattes or do they just trick themselves into it, because its cool to say you like it in the fall. 

I wonder if Rhett is watching his man crush (Favre) right now. ... Yes, I will ask Kelley!

Did you know that my blogger situation is rough, because it doesn't post when I schedule it to? It just leaves my blog empty and makes me look like a slacker!

We totally match right now wearing gray hoodies! Good thing we don't go out like this. People would think we have issues. 


I'm here. And I'm still writing,

If You Give a Wife A Zappos Card...

Handsome just left to go running at the gym.
He left me at home with my computer.
And with my credit card.
And with my birthday swiftly approaching...



Banana Republic 

So... what? A little damage was done? 
It's certainly not anything that we can't live through!

I'm totally kidding. But if I had unlimited funds and closet space (and there weren't hungry children in the world or people that needed their souls to be saved) then maybe, just maybe I would want to indulge myself in all of these fun fall shoes! 

A girl can dream can't she?

Full(y) Changing.

I'm coming to you from my living room on Sunday evening. Handsome sits on the couch watching Sunday night football. I'm breathing in the crisp cool air and cozyed up in my favorite fleece (which I've been wearing all spring and summer too because I like it). I'm yawning and thinking socks would comfort my toes, but I haven't sat with still with my computer in a long time so I think I'll just stay right here.

Our weekend was full. And actually our lives have been so full lately.  Full of love, of thinking, of activity. Full of family and of friends.  So full, that I didn't even remember to say goodbye before I took a pause from blog for life. 
It is so fun being out of school. I thought working forty hour weeks would be more exhausting than school was...and in some ways it is! Right now its a bit more draining, but I think in ways that I will grow accustomed to soon. In most ways it is such a joy being completely free of thinking-stress on the weekends and when I watch the tele with my man on weeknights.
A bit of exercising, a few fun nights with friends, laundry and sleep have been filling up my waking-non-working hours. I have barely been reading or cooking (much to the man's dismay), but maybe soon this workin-life will feel more normal than it has so far.  It is invigorating to start a new chapter and to acclimate to it, even if I seem to do so a bit slowly. I'm thrilled that the weather is crisp and a new season (in more ways than one) is beginning. 

I'm still here. And I'm still writing,
