Friday happies!!

This week has been a roller coaster, I've been busy every night and while its been crazy, its been worth it. It's in these moments that I remember that life is always blessed, I just have to stop and remember. Like when my husband had his first softball game of the season and I chose to stay home "in case of rain", and he texted me begging me to come watch...I felt like a bad wife, and I really did want to see him play, so I closed the computer and chose to enjoy REAL moments with people. My husband is so cute!!

-On an exciting note - I think I'm leaving work a bit early to finally go meet baby Norah! One of my friends, Becca, is being induced today and this lil babe could arrive at any moment! I've charged the camera and can't wait for some baby snuggles!!! I'm not a mom but I can't imagine waking up this morning and having that realization that; okay, this baby is coming TODAY! Ahh!

-We didn't do much cooking this week, not that we ate out a lot, but we took the easy way out. Mac and cheese for dinner, frozen fish, Wendy's (okay so we ate out some...). My body is feeling kinda crummy lately and I'm going to be honest this week has been so hectic I haven't made time for a single run. I'm excited though that this weekend we're going for a 9 miler! I need all the encouragement I can get.

-I think I got to bed BEFORE midnight only once this entire week. Hence the few energy drinks I had at the office...

-My mom and I went to a women's group with my dear friend, Marie, on Wednesday, and it was just amazing. There is something so freeing about being in a room with a dozen strangers and opening up about your issues, insecurities, past, etc... and the healing and forgiveness that comes through that? It's unreal! Can't wait to hopefully go back in a couple weeks.

-I GOT MY WEDDING RING BACK, finally! I will just say this - if Caleb and I ever look into upgrading (like, 10 yrs from now) I won't be going to Kay Jewelers...their customer service is just under par, and I feel like an inconvenience every time I walk in. But other than that, I'm so happy my left ring finger has its shiny bling back :)

I'm aware this was a random, weird, short post, but I ask that you just go with it! I also want to ask for some prayer for some of my best friends going through some sad/unexpected situations. It would mean the world :) happy Friday!!


  1. I hated that Kay had to keep my ring for TWO WEEKS to replace a lost diamond. I was irritated to say the least. Praying for your sweet friends!! Have a great weekend!!

  2. What happened to your ring? Keith got my ring at a private jeweler as it all was a surprise, he didn't know the size of my finger and so once he popped the question, we had to take it in to be resized and man you really don't know how missing something is until that once piece of jewelry is gone for a few days...and I hadn't even owned it that long!!

    Have a great weekend chica!

  3. We use Kay too and it's totally gone down hill in the last few years. And they actually sold Josh my engagement ring in a 7, knowing I needed a 5.5 and it could only be sized up or down by 1 size (because of the diamonds in the band), and then when I took it back and told them they needed to give me the correct size, they made us put 20% down in order to order a second ring before crediting it back when the new one came in. It was a bit ridiculous.

    I love your hoodie, btw. Where'd you get it?

  4. I know, can you imagine knowing that your baby was going to be born that day?! I get butterflies in my stomach just trying to imagine how crazy and amazing that is going to be!!

  5. i love the name norah!! and glad you choose to go to his game! :) hope you have a great weekend friend!

  6. I love going to Jordan's softball games! They are so fun to watch (even if, ahem, his team is TERRIBLE). He loves it when I come watch too. Special moments :) I'm glad you went! Happy Friday and weekend to you!

  7. I'm happy you're just going with the flow and making the most out of everyday. You'll never regret going to watch him play, but you might regret staying home, ya know? Hooray for new babies and your ring back! Best of luck with the nine-mile run this weekend. Even just thinking about that sentence makes me anxious, but I know you'll rock it and feel better than ever! Have a great weekend, friend!

  8. I hope you have a wonderful weekend girl - sounds like you deserve it after a hectic week! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  9. I'm so sad to hear your issues with Kay. Our rings are from there and we've never had any issues. Whenever i've gotten my ring re-dipped it's been back WAY ahead of when they said it would be back - and the employees (at least at the one we got to) are always awesome!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  10. I love that you and your mom have an awesome women's ministry group to be a part of! Isn't it just so awesome when you're together with other sinners who have a passion and love for Jesus and life?! It makes everything so wonderful :)


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