Five Minute Post

In bullet form, no less. Ready? Go!

  • I feel a little neither here nor there these days. I love my job and I love my husband and our home. Well, I don't so much love the structure that houses our home or the neighbors all around us or the actual neighborhood...I digress. It's just that I haven't really figured out how to balance my time such that the house gets clean, the dog gets walked, meals get cooked, lunch gets packed and I have time to work in some sort of exercise (even though I don't want to do that last one). Don't get me wrong, Jason's willing to do whatever he needs to do to help, I just have control issues, extreme laziness and set ridiculously high expectations for myself where domestic things are involved. Sounds fun, right? Right.You should try living with me. 
  • I love my job. Let me say that again, I LOVE MY JOB. Every day is a delight. No joke. It is beyond thrilling to look forward to going to work and enjoy being there all the ding dong day.
  • My sister is off at survival school getting beat up for a good cause so that she knows how to (hopefully never) deal with it someday. The big sister in me wants to fly out there and give those instructors what for. But I think they would just laugh at me.
  • Like with most things, I went full steam into WIWW and then completely lost steam last week. After being strongly encouraged by Abby, we'll see if it makes a comeback next week. They jury's still out on that one. 
  • In the spirit of embracing spontaneity and the freedom we have to do things at the last minute, Jason and I are going to see Brian Regan's show tonight. He's one of the top five things that will make my darling man belly laugh and I can't wait to watch that happen for a solid hour and a half. Seriously, it's one of my favorite things to hear his belly laugh. Count yourself lucky if you say or do something and it earns that laugh, my friends.
  • It's been cold enough to merit sassy brown boots and a scarf. In fact, I've decided that I want my fall/winter uniform to be cute dresses, tall boots and scarves.
  • I'm about to leave work and have my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season. If you happen to run into me this evening, that should explain the giant grin on my face.


  1. Hope Brian Regan and latte were fantabulous.
    Juggling work, home, marriage is NOT something I am/have been good at doing. I look forward to watching you figure it out with grace and style {and then swiping whatever you do like the copycat I am!}.

    Oh my gosh that first bullet sounded just like me. We should be besties LOL. I seriously set too higher expectations of myself & then wallow in self pity when I fail. Yep, that would be me!

    I've never had a pumpkin spice latte but um...I'm definitely going to give it a try. Apparently everyone in blogland has had one except for me. Sad, I know. Our little po dunk town doesn't even have a Starbucks so yeah, that is the problem.

    Hope your weekend is awesome :)
