What the heck are snow days?!

I've got a lot on my mind right this brain dump I call a blog post will have to do for today!

I have one incredible husband. I recently found out my Grandpa has cancer in his throat...again. Last time they removed the cancerous cells off of his voice box, and that was that. Since it's come back again, they have decided to remove his voice box completely. This absolutely destroyed me on Sunday. I don't know why it affected me so badly, as this Grandpa and I aren't very close...but still. The thought of never getting to have an actual conversation with him again, broke my heart. As I flopped on the couch in tears, Caleb just held me through it all. Even better? As I cried, he started to pray for my Grandpa. What a man I have.

One of my best friends from college is getting married in two little days!! Tomorrow I'll be driving up to her town to be a part of the rehearsal, then all of us bridesmaid's are getting our nails done and hitting up the Cheesecake Factory, per the bride-to-be's request! Then headed back to her parents for a sleepover.

I'm extremely excited to be getting my nails done, as I haven't had them done since my WEDDING, LAST YEAR! If you know me at all, you know I don't really take care of my nails. They are always plain Jane...but I'm okay with that.

I took a pretty hard fall on Sunday night and rolled my ankle. I thought nothing of it until a day or two later, it was swollen and bruised. Not fun. I've taken it super easy this week and probably won't run until the weekend. I don't want to risk anything before the REAL 12 week training program begins.

Speaking of this half marathon training. I technically started...but really right now, I'm just trying to train for the training...if that makes sense. I'm scared out of my mind to run 13.1 miles...but I know I can do this. I'm excited and terrified all at once!

I can't believe that I live in the tundra that is Ohio...I'm lucky if its even -3 out in the morning, my car hardly starts...yet I've gotten no "snow days" that all you from the south speak of. I want one, and I want it now. I'll just sit here in my desk cubicle, pretending I'm curled up under my multiple blankets with hot chocolate whenever I want some.

To say I'm reader for warmer weather would be the understatement of the year.

Stay warm this week my friends!


  1. all I want is warm sunny beaches. im sorry to hear about your grandpa, regardless of the connection its still family and its just difficult! lots of hugs and prayers

  2. So sorry about your grandfather. I think about my grandfather everyday and would love to talk with him and tell him everything that's happened recently. I can't imagine not having a conservation. Lots of prayers and lots of hugs your way! (and isn't being married the best?! Especially when hard things come our way).

    And I don't even know what a snow day is when actual snow is involved! hehe

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandpa!! Meredith is right - family is family! I will be keeping him in my thoughts and prayers.

    I just got a manicure for like the 5th time in my life last week hehe it was awesome!

    Dreaming of warm weather as well!!!! And March 14th :) Haha I wonder how many times I can reference our weekend between now and then :P

  4. I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandpa. Even though you're not close I'm sure that's a hard pill to swallow. :( It made me teary eyed when you said Caleb starting praying for him. So, So Sweet!

    I hope you have the BEST time with your girlfriends and at the wedding.

    And lastly, I'm not jealous of your weather, but if I could I'd send you some warmer temps. :D

  5. Have fun with your friend's wedding this weekend! I'm Plain Jane with my nails too!

  6. OMG it's THAT COLD and y'all don't get snow days?? I cannot even imagine! But we don't know how to drive in snow/ice in Texas, so I'm guessing that's why everything gets cancelled. On Tuesday in the Austin area alone, there were over 200 wrecks because of the ice!!!! We really don't know how to maneuver around ice!

  7. Wow, I'm so sorry about your grandfather. I'll be praying for him and your family.

    I can't believe y'all don't get snow days! Us southern folk just can't handle cold, snow, or ice so we cancel everything. Ha.

  8. so sorry about your grandpa. thinking of you and you're family.

    and i'm so ready for some sun!

  9. I hate that for you friend. What an amazing man your sweet husband is though. So glad you have someone that is there in your hard times. YAY for weddings and please help me make the warmer weather come back like right now.

  10. Tell Caleb that I love him. :)

  11. I'm so sorry about your grandpa, but I love the bit about your husband. That melts me. Speaking of melting, I feel you on the snow days. COME ON! Finally, you totally can do the running! Think about how far you've come so far! You've got this!


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
