A Few Wednesday Random Thoughts

I wasn't planning on showing up to my blogger account today, however it occurred to me that every minute writing a blog post is a minute spent not packing. This whole packing thing is a little sad to me. And it's not because I'm not excited about the next house, but because I really enjoyed this house and all of the memories made in it. I'll never forget sitting outside by the fireplace Shawn and I built with friends drinking wine in the Summer


or building forts in the living room to sleep in at night

watching our living room go from this


to this


to this


having our yard full of little kiddos and remembering back to when they were that little


the early mornings spent next to the Christmas tree


and all of the life that happened over the past 7 years.

It's been a great run in this house and I will forever remember this space that we have called home. 

In other news, I am relishing this quiet afternoon at home alone, complete with Pumpkin Spice coffee in hand and A Christmas Story pajama pants on.


I feel as though this is going to be the last one of these days in quite awhile. Between moving into a new house, going to California (twice), Louisville, Nashville, and Florida (twice) all before December, things are about to get a little insane. It should also be noted that I have not been sleeping at night due to my first flying alone experience so that's awesome. I know that most likely sounds foolish and silly to the majority of you, however for those of us who are panic attack ridden [especially on airplanes], a four and a half hour flight alone does not sound all that appealing. Like at all. I keep trying not to cry when thinking about it but every time I do a little part of me wants to bawl like a baby. One would think I am 7, not 28, but here I am. You better believe I am going to be that girl walking onto the plane with plastic bags full of mini bottles of every type of alcohol, lavender oil, and pills. 

I think that covers today's thoughts...

Actually that is a lie. I could talk about so much right now [like how I found over 20 boxes of macaroni and cheese in the basement last night !!!!!!! ] and how I dominated in Fantasy last week [it's a no money league. I KNOW. I rolled my eyes too] or how badly I wish my hair was longer and blonder again, but until those topics arise again, just know I am thinking about them. 

Hey, thanks for the twenty minutes of not packing. It's been real. Fist pound.

  1. I hate packing so much. I think I've stayed late at work every single day this week to avoid doing packing. I think that makes me a sucky wife...

  2. Moving is hard. Leaving memories is hard. If walls could talk there would be so.much.love. Goodbye is almost always hard.

  3. Packing sucks. Moving sucks. Especially when your house is that cute & cozy! Everything happens for a reason though, you got this!

    Oh...and I totally would be right next to you with more bottles lavender and pills...cheers!

  5. such a lovely recap of your years in this home, you will always be able to go back and remember the great times you had and look forward to all the joy of making a new home your own. Nice travel schedule, sounds like you will be a busy gal

  6. I would feel the same way, it's bittersweet, I'm sure! Oh and I'm terrified of flying, so I would be freaking out too!

  7. I do NOT recommend drinking. You'll get so dehydrated and then be miserable later on (trust me, I've been there - and I didn't start drinking until we got to our destination). I am sure it'll be an uneventful flight. Bring a magazine (or 12), your headphones and an iPad and you'll be good.

  8. I love flying alone - I think of it as my only peace & quiet time, when I can completely unplug (well, if I refrain from giving up an arm and an leg on WiFi-equipped planes) and read my magazines, listen to my new playlists, play 2048 until my phone dies, all that.

  9. I'll be doing the moving thing again in December after doing it once already this year. We're having a house built, and I'm having a little anxiety about finally having my own space to decorate. There's so much out there to choose from, and I think it's going to be overwhelming!

  10. Aww! It was bittersweet leaving our first home too! The new home will be awesome & y'all will make just as many amazing memories there + some! I semi envy all the traveling you are doing but, so sorry about your anxiety about flying!! Does not sound fun! Good luck with the move!!!

  11. Booze is definitely a good flying strategy but i'd also recommend a playlist that will make you wish you had a mic in your hands in some awesome karaoke bar. Music will make the time fly by :)

  12. Just box up all those memories and bring them with you. You have pictures and many blog posts about your old house. Moving on is all part of the journey. I have to say., I hate flying. I had to fly alone and it was scary. Some guy who probably wishes he never sat next to me had nail marks in his arm every time the plane shook. The flight home was great though. It was the first time alone jitters that got to me. Sounds like you have a bunch of fun trips planned...Enjoy.

  13. I've been a horrible blog reader but have been keeping up with you on IG! Excited for the new change for you guys with your new house! We just accepted a counteroffer on a new house and as long as financing and the inspection come through, we hope to be making this new change, too! I know what you mean about leaving behind memories, but isn't it so exciting to dream about all the new memories? Hope you got all your packing done after your 20 min break. ;) Unpacking is what I hate the most!

  14. Though I have only moved four times, we've moved my parents several times these past years and every time the memories start flowing and it's so hard to do. Quite bittersweet. I hope the move goes well though!

  16. Moving is tough, especially when you've put so much work into your current home. But can't wait to see more of the new one! XO, Sarah

  17. My first "flying by myself" experience was to California too. I think I was about 26 and I was terrified, but it actually went really smoothly. You'll be just fine! :)

  18. Girl, you need some Xanax on the plane. It will make you soooo much more relxed...ask your doctor forreal. I get nervous flying too- it makes it so much more relaxing.

    I was also very sad about moving out of our old house, but you will always have those memories and you build new ones in the new house. I don't miss it now, because I love our new house so much.

  20. Ugh the stress of moving and the sadness of leaving your first house, this was us 5 months ago...then we heard the knocked down our old house so that was that! In other news, I'm a really good flying buddy, we can play drinking games ;)

  22. Moving is so bittersweet! I feel the same way every time we move, too. Once you're unpacked again you'll feel a lot better :)

  23. This is so sweet and thank you for sharing with us. I hope you have a happy move knowing all the wonderful memories you're about to create. Also, I COMPLETELY understand your fear of flying alone. I've never had to do it but its not something i'd ever want to do. Good luck my friend.

  24. Thanks to Dr great for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family?

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Success Story,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(greatpowerspelltemple@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster .

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
