Little Update

Well, it's been a while. I have definitely been slacking in my blogging duties. Sorry everyone.
Thanksgiving turned out to be pretty rough. Adam got food poisoning the night before Thanksgiving from Taco Bell! He was so sick that night and the whole Thanksgiving Day. Meanwhile, I unpacked my house by myself instead of enjoying family time and turkey, I cried. The funny thing, is that I posted a blog (my last one) about how we should be thankful on thanksgiving, and instead I just felt bad for myself and had a terribe day. Letting yourself down is No fun!

But on the bright side, our house is completely unpacked and everything is in place :) We are really proud of our room too. We were trying to make it an all-purpose room since we were moving in with people so that we could have our own thing going on. And it looks great! Yay for us! It's very cozy...

I feel like I have been posting blogs lately about nothing important or of quality. So, I'll give you an update on me. In the midst of all my business, I don't feel like I have had a lot of time for myself to just think and be silent. And I have found that in those times when I actually do get a few minutes, I am beating myself up with guilt about all the things that I haven't been doing. Adam and I had a long talk about it last night, and he reminded me that it's silly to feel guilty about it, because in reality, I truly DON'T have enough time for all the things I'd like to do. So, my goal is to find some time that I can spend with just God and I. I am really yearning for those times but I have just felt like my head is full of too much other junk that I can't focus. I need a little peace of mind!

That's all for now! I am planning on taking pictures of our little room tonight so that will be fun! And maybe..just maybe.. i'll post some :)

Until next time...Peace!

The Holidays

Well, thanksgiving is here! Well...almost. And I am sooo ready for it! I think that I need some down time in light of all that has been going on lately. I've been a little stressed these days. I'm ready to just eat, relax, play games, laugh, and just be DONE with everything that has been 'in progress' in my life. It seems like everything is moving by so quickly in life right now, and I just want it to stop so that I can actually rest and be able to adjust to some of the changes that are happening. Adam and I are in the process of moving, working more than full-time, in the midst of a family crisis, carving out some time together, trying to keep our house in some kind of living order,buying new furniture, giving away old furniture, trying to maintain at least a few friendships, and figuring out what ministry to be a part of.....WOW! That's a never really realize how much you do until you write it down!

But all that to say, I still feel like my life is going well. And it is interesting that it's in some of the busiest times in your life that you can recieve some GREAT encouragement from the Lord in the midst of your struggles, and feel so on "autopilot" (as Alexa calls it) about life. The Lord is good.

Also, for thanksgiving, Adam and I are going to make sure that our families do share some thanks. Sometimes I feel like we miss that whole aspect, and it's all about the food, when really it's about THANKSGIVING! So, be thankful! :)

I will post some pictures from thanksgiving with both families :) We will be stuffed on Thursday! We are going to my family's for lunch, and then Adam's for dinner. But it'll be some good eatin'! And we will be full stuffed of thanks as well :)

Have a Happy THANKSgiving!

P.S. I'm already excited about Christmas, hence the blog decor!

Life Updates

Sorry I haven't written lately. There hasn't been much to write about. We are hoping to move into our new place in 2 weeks. The apartment complex didn't do a proper clean AT ALL, and therefore we refuse to move in until it is completely finished. AND they take $30 off our rent for each day it isn't done and they are going on their 10th day! This makes Adam really happy, but I am frustrated because I have been the one talking to them, trying to make it all work, and the darn thing STILL isn't finished. Okay. I'm done ranting. But that's the update on that.

As soon as the apartment is all done I will post pictures :) We are hoping to decorate it really cute with our tight budget. So, we will see what we come up with. Also, Adam and I have to downgrade to a queen size bed when we are use to our king to conserve space! Ugh! But, it is just one of the sacrifices to becoming debt free I guess :)

So, that's all I have for today. Pretty boring. Better luck next time...
