Notes from The Week + Sunday Social

How was your week guys? I feel like mine flew by in one big blur. Monday, I did trivia night with Adam as Team BlueShell (we ended up 1 point from 3rd place!), and Thursday I played with my mother as Team Two Generations of Awesome (we sucked terribly).  This week in summer day treatment, I survived taking my kiddos to Chuck E. Cheese, did about a million and one pieces of paperwork, and survived some majorly bad attitudes from my classroom helpers. 

On Friday, I spent hours in the wave pool and lazy river at Point Mallard. I even managed to get a little bit of a sunburn and a case of serious lazy river burn on my knees. I guess that is the medical hazard of ultimate relaxation A.K.A nirvana achieved.  Saturday, Adam and I went to my favorite Huntsville restaurant Cheddars for some Southern Fried Catfish, red beans and rice, and broccoli & cheese casserole. I spent the evening painting KLIMT's The Kiss at Spirited Art (yes, painting is my new obsession, it may never stop).

This morning I woke up at 4 a.m. to send Adam on a business trip to California. He wants me to tell everyone that because he thinks it makes him sound uber important. I'm going to miss him terribly, but I think I might be too busy to notice, being that it is the last week of our work summer  treatment program, and I need to have all my work complete this week, so that I can head off to the beach the next week!! The beach is calling my name! Can't you hear it?

Now it's on to this week's Sunday Social:

1. What are 3 items you can’t live without on a daily basis (water, food, shelter, and clothes don’t count)? I can't live without my kindle for emergency reading situations, my scentsy scents because good smells relax me and make me happy,  and Pandora radio so I can listen to music while I'm working or doing anything else.

2. What is your all time favorite book? This is a hard question to answer because there is so many books I love, but I would have to say A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Don Miller. It is such an inspiring book, and sometimes I just reread my favorite quotes to get uplifted when I'm feeling down. 

3. What is something you’d like to accomplish before the end of 2013? 1. Save up half of the money needed for our down payment to buy a house next year, 2. Attend a Green Bay Packer's Game with my Husband, and 3. Add a pet to our family

4. If you could go back and relive any year of your life which year would it be? I think 2008 was one of my favorite and best years. I graduated from college, I got engaged to Adam, I moved in with Adam in California, and I got to go on a trip of a lifetime to Israel! I think that would be a fun year to do over.

5. What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell them? That I am very shy and feel very socially awkward most days, although I hide it well. And that I need a lot of positive feedback and reinforcement just to know that I'm doing OK, and that one negative word sticks with me forever. I'm working on all these issues, it is a non-stop learning process.


  1. Good luck with the house down payment! I just bought my first apartment this year which was very exciting!

  2. Hi There, good plan to head to the beach next week. I have a kobo and they do come in handy and are easier to take along than a pile of books. Those are some good goals for 2013.

  3. Ahhhh.. I love Scentsy but don't own anything Scentsy related. My mother has some of the stuff but living in a studio condo, there's really no place to put a burner and with saving for a bigger place and expecting a baby-- I.Must.Save.Money! But I agree-- beautiful scents are SOOOOO relaxing!

  4. I can completely relate to being incredibly shy and socially awkward (I actual get bad physical symptoms in a lot of social situations). I am definitely an introvert at heart. Also, like you negative words stay with me forever.
    I've never tried scentsy, but I adore yankee candle particularly their discontinued plumeria scent.

  5. For reading emergencies, love that!! I have those moments :-) I think 2008 was an awesome year. I started reading your blog and I met match that year. I wouldn't mind reliving those first months with him.
    Hehe, Adam does sound oober important! :-)
