Suck {and sweet}

Suck || Being so busy. We have something going on every evening this week and I'm a little exhausted.
Sweet || Having all these plans has given me the chance to spend time with SO many people that I love!

Suck || Being irritable.
Sweet || Convincing myself I deserve some fudge so I'm not so irritable.

Suck || How expensive a bouquet of flowers can be.
Sweet || How pretty they are anyway.

Suck || Working until 5:00 this new year, and not getting off at 4:30 anymore
Sweet || Being thankful I have a day job.

Suck || How long it takes to prepare a homemade dinner.
Sweet || When Caleb went back for seconds. #winning

Suck || Having to throw your hair in a greasy ponytail because you woke up late.
Sweet || Getting those few extra minutes of sleep.

Suck || Hitting traffic every morning.
Sweet || Being grateful that everyone on the road is safe; including me.

Suck || Sweating my butt off trying to make a silly fort in our living room before Caleb got home.
Sweet || Seeing his face when he walked through the door!

Suck || Not having President's Day off of work.
Sweet || Still having a mostly obligation free weekend, woo!

*borrowed this post idea from my sweet blog friend Shelley long ago! Thanks, girl!
I hope everyone has had a great week, so far! Enjoy your Thursday!


  1. Not going to lie I thought that was some sort of photo shoot setup...until I saw the tv, ha! ;)

  2. Love this post, I cant relate to all of them except the fort! Hahaha! That pasta looks so yummy!! :)

  3. You are making me want to build a fort as soon as I get home today, it's so cute and fun! That dish you made looks absolutely incredible and when Matthew goes back for seconds I literally feel like super woman in the kitchen LOL.

  4. That pasta looks amazing! And, this is such a good idea.

  5. Oh my gosh I don't get MLK Day or President's Day off. I get SO jealous that it feels like everyone else does!

  6. I saw that fort on Instagram and I absolutely love it! Such an awesome idea. Nothing better than getting back to childhood roots. Also, that dinner looks AMAZING.

  7. We used to not get President's Day off, so I feel your pain. Luckily for me, though, they instituted it as a holiday a year or two ago!

  8. That fort is such a cute idea. I don't get President's Day off either. Students do, but we don't. So I guess it's sort of like a day off lol.

  9. I love this post. I'm going to give you a suck/sweet combo...
    Suck... not having set plans with you and Erin yet.
    Sweet... knowing it's going to happen one day. Gotta make time!

  10. That fort is amazing! This is a great post. love that attitude of gratitude!

  11. I feel you on the traffic thing! Some days it takes me 25 minutes to get to/from work, other days an hour and a half. Those days put me in a bad mood! :) Those flowers are beautiful! Matt got me flowers for Valentine's and even though I know the money could have been spent elsewhere, they seriously make me so happy so I think we're getting our money's worth!! Enjoy your weekend!

  12. Traffic is lame. But I do weirdly miss having a commute sometimes haha! Glad you've had a good week even though it's been busy!!

  13. That pasta looks soo good. I need it in my belly.



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