Suck & sweet: volume 2

Stealing this fun idea from the adorable Shelley! 
Suck: Nearly passing out yesterday at my Doctors appointment. I had to get some routine blood work done (which has never happened) and within a few seconds of blood being drawn, I got crazy lightheaded, my ears began ringing, I couldn't see anything but black splotches and I turned insanely clammy. The nurse informed me (before my hearing went out) that she thinks I might pass out, oh great. Luckily I didn't, but those next 5 to 6 minutes were torture. I chugged that can of Sierra Mist like nobodies business.
Sweet: the hearty breakfast I treated myself to post-blood drawing.

Suck: That it's only Wednesday.
Sweet: BECKY IS COMING TO TOWN IN TWO DAYS!!! We have lots of fun plans but also lots of room for spontaneity!! Can't wait to squeeze her again! 

Suck: that we're not caught up on The Walking Dead and I'm basically avoiding Facebook like the plague...
Sweet: but its the best show ever and its back, baby!!!

Suck: being so tired from not getting enough sleep
Sweet: not getting enough sleep because your husband made you laugh so hard by hiding your glasses and making jokes about your lack of good vision. He's a keeper ;)

Suck: having so many books in your house you don't know which one to start next
Sweet: having a husband who loves to read alongside you. We read for almost 90 minutes last night(before dinner, even!!)

Suck: forgetting your fitbit at home
Sweet: not having anything on my wrist for once is kinda nice

Suck: that Caleb passed off some of his germs to me and I'm left with a sore throat
Sweet: that I'm poppin Zicam like its my job and making fresh tea every hour to beat this!

Suck: being lame and not making homemade meatballs for your low-carb recipe
Sweet: finding out your local supermarket has Italian (pre-cooked) meatballs for crazy cheap

Suck: getting emails from Shutterfly that make me want to buy everything
Sweet: finally narrowing down wedding photos for albums and a canvas (or three)!

Hope everyone is having a fun week! Happy hump day!


  1. that picture is dreamy. So beautiful. Hope you feel better soon! I've been lacking on my book reading department.. renovating the house has sucked the life out of me, I'll tell you. Love getting inspiration from couples that find the time to do so!

  2. I pass out every single time I have blood work done or get a shot and each time I treat myself to a not so healthy kinda meal! I can totally see the sweetness in a hearty breakfast after sucky blood work!

  3. This is a cute idea! I haven't watched TWD yet either, so I'm hoping nobody shares any spoilers. Have a great week!

  4. Feeling like you are going to pass out is probably one of the scariest things. So glad you didn't though!! I definitely would have treated myself to breakfast after that too!

    Hoping you feel better and these next two days fly by for you so y'all can have some fun this weekend!! Also, Shutterfly kills me with their great emails lol.

  5. Oh my gosh!!! So glad you didn't pass out. That's definitely happened to me before.

    So what did you decide to read from your giant list?!?!

  6. Hunter and I are also behind on TWD and we've been avoiding all things social media lol! One of these days we'll get caught up. Ha!

  7. That is one thing I dislike about social media - people ruin things for others, whether they mean to or not. I sometimes just have to ignore FB the night of a show I watch on purpose because of that. Good luck to getting caught up!

  8. i have made meatballs once and they sucked so i need to find some good frozen ones.. hint hint. yay reading! what you reading right now? sucks about the blood drawing scare, not looking forward to my doctors appt next week.

  9. BECKY!!!! :) You definitely need to get caught up on TWD like... NOW! I wasn't that excited to watch it and then umm yeah, it was pretty good!

  10. Ugh, I've passed out after blood before it is sooooo strange! Glad you are alright now.

    And ugh to germs. My coworkers passed them off to me, YUCK!

  11. Awww... I love reading next to each other in bed! :)

  12. I need to catch up on Walking Dead too! We are cable-free, so I am going to try AMC and see if it's on there!

  13. That's so sweet that you guys read together! Glad you have lots of sweet things this week!

  14. So glad to read your post, really interesting. Hope you feel good and enjoying a lot now. Happy week ahead! Keep smiling!
