I've had the hardest time blogging lately. I had set a goal to blog every day in the month of February. That didn't happen.
B and I are stuck in the madness of working ALL the time and not having much time for anything else. I am so blessed to have a business that is doing so well. I'm just not sure how much longer I can keep up with the pace of it all and the insane workload.
I have some exciting opportunities in the works right now. I'll give details when I have more info. Exciting and Scary at the same time.
A very quick recap of our February:
- We attended and watched a ton of Auburn basketball. (Not a good year for AU basketball)
- Dawson & Ellie Kate turned 1!!
- Auburn baseball has started. We will now be crossing over from basketball to baseball. (Hopefully our baseball team will be better than our basketball team)
- We spent countless hours working on our bathroom, bedroom and closet remodel. We are now referring to the master suite as "The Money Pit". The joys of home ownership. There were several things that had to be done and that's taken away from the fun stuff I was hoping to do. One of these days I'll have pictures to post!
- I got to go with B & Gwen (Bryant's co-worker and a great friend of ours) to Chateau Elan for the Southern Living Custom Homebuilder Expo. Chateau Elan is located north of Atlanta. It is such a beautiful resort and winery. We had a great time!
- Insomnia has caused many sleepless nights. I did sleep for almost 5 hours last night...that's a huge deal for me lately!
I really can't believe that tomorrow is March 2013. I'm still writing 2012 on everything.
I didn't realize how difficult it was going to be to find time to blog every day! I know I'm several days behind. I did say that I would "try" to blog every day in the month of February!
My day has been full of sanding, painting, staining, returning emails, sending invoices and a bit of cleaning. It has been a very busy day!
Tonight was "date night" for us! We went to the AU vs. UA basketball game. B is very thankful that he has a wife who loves sports & sporting events almost as much as he does! Anytime we beat our state rival (University of Alabama) it's a good day.
I promise that I will try to make my blog a little more interesting! It's been boring to me lately so I know it's been boring to you! ;-)
There isn't really much to blog for day 4. I've spent 90% of the day laying on a heating pad. The medicine I'm taking has made me somewhat of a zombie. I am hoping that I will wake up tomorrow and all of the kidney stuff will be gone!
I promise I'm going to blog about stuff other than kidney stones this month! I will finish this very short & very boring blog post with a picture of Dudley from today.
We really think he has no clue he is a dog and not a human.
He sleeps with a pillow. He has to have his blanket on him or he won't go to sleep.
I am taking on the challenge to blog everyday in the month of February. I've been such a slacker over the past year. There are all kinds of blogging challenges to do. I normally don't get into these things but I thought it might help me get back into my normal blogging routine. Today was a great day. It started with getting my hair colored, conditioned & cut. I'm officially back in the short hair club!! If I ever become extremely wealthy I'm going to hire someone to wash (with the fabulous head massage)& blow dry my hair every day. Bryant and I have a crazy busy weekend. TFAC has been doing great. It's definitely a positive thing but it can also be a negative. To say we are extremely crazy busy is an understatement. I'm in the process of changing somethings with the business to help bring a little more balance to our lives and schedule. With that being said, if you haven't checked out our etsy store or facebook page we would LOVE for you to do so. I apologize. This was a very boring post. Hopefully, the month will get more exciting!
Well, 2012 went by in a flash. I am sad about how much was left out on the blog. I've written about this several times but my blog hasn't ever really been for anyone else. I have moments where I'm shocked that I ever let anyone read some of the stuff that I've written about on here. I'm continually surprised that anyone would want to get on this "crazy train" with me. At times, that is by far the most accurate description I can come up with for my life.
2012 was full of an incredible amount of change for Bryant and me. You know how I feel about change...good or bad. It completely rocks my world. It was a year of very tough decisions, crossroads, soul searching and reflection. I've learned a lot. That is always a thing to write in the win category. It's so much easier to not regret or wish away the hard stuff when you are able to see the growth and wisdom it brings.
Bryant and I are approaching the ten year mark. Woohoo! & Thank you Jesus! Not only that, Bryant will be turning the big 30 this year. In no way do I think 30 is old. No matter how much we joke about getting older and feeling old, I'm ready to leave the twenties behind! It's amazing to me how differently my life turned out from the "plan" I had for me and for my marriage. The obvious...that we don't have any kids here with us. I never thought we would still be in Auburn (even though we love it oh so much!). There have been other recent changes that I would have never even thought for a second we would make. It's not all bad either. I am so thankful to be where I am in my relationship with B. I don't like the way we had to get here but it's so nice to know that we are in this for the long haul. It's not something I can really explain. I just know He is my person and I'm his. It's not meant to sound sentimental or cheesy. I'm just so thankful for the security that comes with going through life together. Of course, it helps that he has the ability to make us laugh through almost anything life throws at us...and it doesn't hurt that I think he just might be the cutest husband ever.
The lack of sleep and the amount of work I've taken on with Things From a Cloud has made blogging almost impossible. I didn't make any resolutions this year but I hope I will have more time for the blog. I'll end this blog post with my favorite picture from being home for Christmas.
It's been a crazy couple of months for us. I promise there will be more blogging in 2013. Bryant and I want to wish all of you a very merry Christmas. We are so thankful for all of the love & support we continue to receive from some many of our "blog friends".
We decided we needed some fun & joy in our Christmas card this year. Once again, the fabulous Heather Carson did a phenomenal job! We love you HC!
We are looking forward to seeing our family and taking some much needed time off!
Merry Christmas 2012!!
