I went off my birth control.

and I have acne.  Its like I time warped back to my freshman year in high school, and I have to use my noxzema again. Also, I am a picker, and I can’t have anything on me that I can feel.  I have to pop those zits!!  I do not like this!  I usually have great skin, and ever since I quit taking that little pill a lot of stuff has happened:

I got acne.(spoiler alert)

I gained 10 lbs.(I know people usually gain when they get on the pill, but my maintained, and now has gone up

My hair is gross. This might be the shampoo that we changed to, but I don’t know. 

The good thing is I enjoy my husband more, if you know what I mean!

Decorating Fail

This is what you get when you try to be cute and put a decal on the wall. Then you try to get it off, and it leaves an imprint!


All year long!

First Thing

Today for the first time, I saw one of my husbands exes (ex) today.  We happen to be walking in the parking lot, and there was another couple with a baby.  Hubby said Hello while I was texting on my phone. 

I looked up and stood kind of behind him because I was texting, and wasn’t really paying attention to the conversation.  I got introduced as his wife, and that was it.  My hubby knows a lot of people and we constantly run into someone he knows.  I just do my usual “Nice to meet you” and stand there while they catch up. 

As we are walking away, I see my husband kind of smirk. I ask “Who was that?” He says it was his ex girlfriend from like 7 years ago.  I had to stop and look back to see what she really looked like.  I had not been expecting that. 

As we are leaving the store, and I have been joking around saying that could have been your baby, and how things change over time. 

I asked him if that Reba McEntire song played in his head as he talked to her:

Thousands of people live in this town
And I had to run into him
When I saw him there on that busy street
Those feelings came back again
There was nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
He walked up to me, looked in my eyes
And still
The world stood still
I couldn't move
And all I could feel
Was this aching in my heart
Saying I loved him still

After he stopped laughing he said that this Garth Brooks song was actually playing in his mind:

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

Then I laughed some more.  It may sound mean and cocky, but you always want to look better than the ex.  and I did.

Totally 80s!!!


My 30th birthday is coming up this year, and usually I would be pretty bummed.  I hate getting older, but what a better way to celebrate it than to have an 80’s theme party.

I am really excited, and I am working on some ideas!  I need some more ideas!!  I specifically need some decorations ideas.  I am going to use my garage as the party area.  It is a nice big blank space, and you can hang out outside or inside.  I can’t go crazy and paint anything, but I need something for the wall. 

This is an example of something on the wall with construction paper or card stock.(without the moustache)


I also want a photo booth, with black back drop and balloons.  I have 6 months to get this party together.  I am also making people dress up in 80s wear.  I can not wait!  It is going to totally awesome!

Off Day

Today is an off day.  I have a lot of stuff that I want to do, but I feel like blah.  I still have to take down my tree and all the decorations.  I still have to put up my Christmas presents in the correct places. 

In two weeks, I will have been married 2 years.  2 years.  It’s amazing still.  There are lots of people that can’t even make it a year.  a year!!  There are also people out there that are miserable in their marriage. 

But we are still in love as if it was the first day we fell in love. 

In other news, I have reached a reality tv wall with the crap that I watched last night.  Conveyor Belt of Love has to be the stupidest reality show ever.  It is much worse than any Jersey Shore, Tough love, or Rock of love. 

I am also trying to diet again.  I haven’t started yet, because things keep coming up!!

walk/run: 2 miles, only 198 more to go. 


I think I played Super Mario Brother Wii all day today.  That game is so great!  It is addictive! 

My resolutions are coming along.  I need to get all of my Christmas decor down, and hopefully I can do that tomorrow!

2010 New Year Goals

1.  Write more on my blog.

2.  Write 90% more on my blog.

3.  Comment on other people’s blog.  (I really suck at that!)

4.  Lose weight.  (duh!)

5.  Eat healthy food!  I love junk, the more cheese, candy, chocolate, fried a food is, I will gobble it up.  But I love healthy food too!  Why can’t I eat more of that!

6.  Make more dinners at home.  If you knew how much my husband and I eat out!  You would be offended.  (like every day that ends in y).

7.  Run 200 miles this year.  I really want to get back into exercising since I have a gym membership until Oct 2010.

8.  Pray more, and read more of God’s word. 

9. Help make a baby.  (writing that down makes it real, but like I told my husband it is probably a 2% chance that it will happen this year.)

10.  Love my husband more than I ever have in 2009!

11.  watch less TV, and less internet.  I don’t have to know everything that happens in pop culture.

Hopefully I will keep you update on how everything is going.  This past year has been wonderful, and I am looking forward to what 2010.  I hope I make new friends, find new love with my husband, and live everyday as if it were my last! (cliché I know!) 

Happy New Year!
