Sushi Night

Last week was the father in law's birrthday. He had never been out for sushi and wanted to give it a try. We got the whole family there plus Grandma and Pa woods and cousin Lolo and Ethan. It was fun chit chatting and trying all the different rolls. I think we had 10+ rolls going around.





























Happpy Birthday Pat!

Cause what else do we do on Sunday?

Lately I've been in love with white and pale decor and I decided that once we move, our master bedroom is getting a makeover. All white and pale colored bedding, I might paint out furniture (which is black) a light cream color, and I want fresh flowers on my nightstand... ohh the anticipation and excitement.

Sneak Peak

Here's a little sneak of Valentines at our house. We had dinner with Chase's parents and it was soooo good. Jenny Mom is a wonderful cook. I only have a picture of the salad but the main course consisted of chicken wrapped in bacon and covered in sauce that was heavenly, the most delicious rice, and asparagus that was cooked to perfection. Not to mention chocolate covered strawberries... oh I'm drooling at the thought.

Happiness: A Choice

Remember yesterday when I promised super bowl pictures. Well I would like to formally apologize because literally 30 minutes after I published that post, my body decided that it hated me and thought the best way to spend Sunday evening was in the fetal position. It was one of those one second you feel like your insides are tying themselves in knots and then a minute later it’s gone. But it wouldn’t stay gone for more than 2-3 minutes, oh no, that won’t do. So my miserable Sunday has no pictures to share. I am also failing miserably at the February photo a day. I have done two pictures so far and it’s the sixth day! I promise to have one tonight because I plan to make a lovely dinner for my hubs. I’m not sure exactly what yet, so feel free to leave recipe ideas in the comments. We are eating semi-healthy lately {meaning we eat turkey sandwiches sometimes and drink cranberry juice}

Switching gears.

Have you ever been having an awful day where everything seems to be going wrong? 
This morning was one of those. 
My alarm went off at 6:40am and I felt like I had just fallen asleep. I literally wanted to cry as I forced myself out of bed. Could I be anymore dramatic? Probably not, but I’m not done. I made husband breakfast, packed his lunch and kissed him goodbye. I then got myself ready for another day of classes. I quickly made myself a little lunch and ran out the door. 
Once on the road I realized I had forgotten my lunch on the counter. I was tempted to turn around and get back into bed for the day, but I needed to be in class. So onward I drove, dreading the thought of sitting through lectures. When I arrived at school I drove around the many different parking lots for literally 20 minutes looking for a spot. By this time I wanted to punch someone in the kidney {I know how much pain those things can cause. Read here} I finally parked in visitor parking, which was as far from my class as you could possibly get, and started the trek to class. 
When I thought my day couldn’t be any worse I saw a lady walking to class. It was very obvious that she had a severe lack of motor skills. She was using a cane to help balance and manage her wobbly and hard to control legs. When she saw me, her mouth spread into the biggest smile I’ve ever seen and she said “good morning” in just the sweetest voice. 
Tears instantly filled my eyes. I smiled and marched off to class so she wouldn’t see. It was like a smack in the face. If this woman with severe disabilities could smile and be happy, then why couldn’t I? Well because I was choosing to focus on the negative. It is ridiculous that I was letting such little silly things ruin my whole day. 
Sometimes I think that certain things happen to lift us and to help us grow. I needed to see that lady struggling to get to class in order to be grateful for my life. I am truly blessed, and on days like these when I feel sorry for myself, I will remember that lady’s smile and cheerful, “good morning”. 
I am thankful for my crappy morning that led to our crossing paths and the realization that happiness is a choice.

10 am

Day 5: 10 am One of our pillows fell off the bed during the night and look where it ended up. 
I couldn't bare to take it away.

Im not going to lie I don't have much to put into this post.
I am kind of in a blogging slump.
I am writing a bunch for school and by the time I get to posting here my mind is just done.
But I will tell you all that today will be spent eating good food and enjoying the big game.
I do promise that there will be a follow up post with pictures, since I have kinda been slacking in that department.

Lunch in my Pjs

Sleeping in is on Saturday is probably my new favorite thing. Its the only morning we don't have anything we have to do. So we sleep in, take the pups long boarding and eat breakfast for lunch. Now we are sitting in front of the heater watching Grease. Still in our pajamas of course. The puppies are enjoying us being home and making sure we don't leave their sight. These songs have been playing nonstop since we woke up. I hope you enjoy em as much as we do!

Fabruary

Okay I am starting a little late... But hey better late than never!
Today is day 3: Hands
"Your hands are one of the most essential parts of your body: you build with them, feed with them, hold with them, touch with them, fight with them; they are tools of the human body. To take a hold of another's hand is to break from living individually. It is to link yourself to another being, to momentarily entwine your life with another's, to promise, for a moment, that you need not face the world alone. More simple, more aesthetically naive than other forms of affection, the act of holding hands is often trivialized in its true implications. As the Beatles once said 'all I want to do is hold your hand"
