5 Things No One Tells You About Finding Your Wedding Dress– by Hannah Weil McKinley via PopSugar
#4 I definitely did not cry. But it was magical.
#5 I actually had another bridal appointment scheduled that day. However, at the 1st shop I found my dress, so I didn’t go onto the other shop and continue to drag out dress shopping for the sake of it.

15 Little Body Victories That Deserve Celebration– by Anna Borges via Buzzfeed
L O V E allllllll of these. Some are even slightly humorous. So very true though. I need some ribbons for some of these accomplishments.
The holiday of Valentine’s Day is upon us!!!! The spirit of love fills the air and hopefully YOU!!! I know, I know, it’s kind of a silly holiday. I’m right there with, ya! I hear you. It’s goofy to have a specific date tell you when you are supposed to publicly proclaim your love for another individual. But also…..don’t you sort of secretly like it/love it? (slowly raises hand) I’ll admit it!! I’m a closet Valentine’s Day lover/appreciator. I mean, you don’t HAVE TO or NEED TO get me anything expensive or cool, just tell me you love me and we can eat pizza.
On that note, I’ve decided to just say some things I’m thankful for this holiday or that make me feel all the butterflies/fluttery hearts/warm and fuzzy inside ❤
- Family that Cares: Marty’s grandmother made enchiladas and somehow got them across the county to us! Nobody asked her to make them, it was literally out of the kindness of her heart that she just took it upon herself to make them. It was so stinkin’ sweet! So kind and thoughtful! Just to have someone think about you can make you feel all fuzzy 🙂 Marty said they were good.
2. Shared TV Shows: When Marty waits to watch the new episode of The Big Bang Theory until I get home, even though he doesn’t have to.
3. Children/Teaching: The kids at school who come up to you and how they are always excited to see your face and always willing to give you multiple hugs. Even IF they don’t know you!!
4. These quite spectacular zebra slippers that I forgot I had at my parents that now live with me again. Yay! Warm feelings.
5. Little things: Like when you come home a baby shower on a Sunday and haven’t been home since very early Saturday morning and your husband has picked up the house, run the dishwasher, cleared up some clutter, and separated the laundry piles. Little things can be big things.
6. Husbands/Marriage: When Marty and I find funny pictures on Facebook at night to laugh at together before bed.
Sometimes in all of the hardships in life, we have to stop and find the little things that make life so spectacular. We have to stop, refocus, and marvel. Not everything in life worth marveling at will hit you straight in the face or out rightly make you realize that it’s something big. Often times, little things are the big things. They are always there though. Always. You just have to be willing to take a minute to appreciate them, soak it all in.
It’s Lasagna Night!!!!!!!!!
Sometimes I use our oven for more than baking. Sometimes. Ordinarily, well before I got married, I would’ve made this lasagna with spinach instead of meat, however I don’t think my husband would’ve totally appreciated that. Soooo, I subbed the spinach for just regular beef. They didn’t have any ground turkey at the store the other day, so beef had to do. Don’t you worry, I still made this dish healthy 😉
You’ve gotta have some sort of garlic bread when you eat Italian food. Am I right??? I like how the lasagna is still all perfect in it’s dish before I had to destroy it and it try to get a piece out 😦 It’s harder than it looks! Oh! And I got to use my blue Corningware dish. They make me smile because they are a pretty color.
And here’s me, being awkward and showing you my plate (like you wanna see that). It’s not the prettiest presentation, but hey, getting lasagna out of a pan is difficult!!! If this isn’t a brave moment, I don’t know what is. I’m trying to breathe through this one. I feel like I should learn some Lamaze breathing techniques to deal with this (insert laugh here).
It’s just now Wednesday and this week has already been eating disorder hell. I’m trying really hard to just eat some food and not worry about how I’m going to burn it off. Easier said than done. I’m teetering on sanity. Currently, I’m watching The Big Bang Theory and the whole gang is at Sheldon and Leonard’s eating their Chinese food and I find myself asking the question of, HOW can they just eat that?! Do they even think about it? Does it phase them?! Do THEY freak out later? Ugh. I just don’t get it. It’s all very frustrating. How do all of you “normal folk” function on a daily basis? Seriously though, right now I think I want to crawl in a corner and just stare at my living room/kitchen from it.
Also, I’m way over this whole winter thing. Can’t it just be spring? Working out/jumping around inside just isn’t appealing anymore. I just feel stuck. I know that Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow so where the heck is spring?! I know, I know, it doesn’t happen that quickly. I think I’m just a little fed up with all this dang wind, too!!! Goodness. It could blow away a small child.
I’m going to finish watching this episode of The Big Bang Theory, wait for Pretty Little Liars to come on and try not to run away now.
