Life Lately [Ramblings From The Weekend]

Well this past weekend was an interesting one to say the least. What started out as a fun little girls night to go see Chris Lane, Kelsea Ballerini and Rascall Flatts turned into a night of me thinking that I was going to be a widow for the rest of my life. So here's a fun little lesson on males - apparently there is some condition that can cause them to pass out while peeing. WHO KNEW? Something about it drops their blood pressure rapidly and blah blah blah. I would also like to call this condition "send your wife into absolute panic, bawling, shaking, hysterical, will never be the same, can't sleep but can still eat because hello, nachos" mode. Thankfully Shawn is alive and well but I made him promise he will never go pee during the middle of the night moving forward [I welcome wet sheets] so I don't have to witness that again.

In all seriousness though, it does make you stop and think a heck of a lot about life when you experience a brief dramatic episode like we did on Friday night. I won't get into all of the details because I cry thinking about it, however even folding his white tee shirts yesterday made me so grateful that I have these tees to fold. While it ended up being nothing too serious, it was all I needed to send me into that "life is so precious" thought process and while we can get so caught up in the not so important details of our day to day lives, it is the people that we have around us that really matter. Being a believer in Christ, I sometimes think He sends little [or big] signs to take a step back and analyze where you are putting your trust, your priorities and hope for the future. Good call Jesus, it's like You knew I needed that. 

Moving on to lighter subjects though [sorry ladies and gents, I was totally planning on showing up today and writing a lighthearted post and then BAM, this whole dear diary thing got the best of me]. Back to what I was saying in the first sentence about the concert Friday night. It was a night of sing- alongs and major girl crushes. Is anybody else out there just in love with Kelsea Ballerini or is that just me? It wouldn't kill me if I had to be her for the rest of my life. 


The rest of our weekend was spent tailgating over at Notre Dame [lets pretend they won, it makes that statement cooler], going to the grand opening of HomeGoods to which I found a big ole mirror for $65 which means my countless mirror selfies just got a whole new life. I know, I'm sorry for you too. The weekend ended with a bonfire with friends which was the flame on the fire [think icing on cake but more relevant to the event at hand] to cap off the weekend that was. 


May all of your men stay vertical while peeing and may we all figure out how to be a cute blonde with a dynamite voice and spunky little hip shakes. I think the first option may be our easiest, just sayin'. 

ps. Is it just me or is it time for a complete blog redesign? Random I know, but true. 

pps. Speaking of time for something - have you melted shredded cheese on tortilla chips in the microwave recently? BEST BREAKFAST EVER. 

ppps. Supposedly there is some giveaway going on that a few [thousand] of you have decided to enter. I heard it ends tomorrow so maybe jump on that now before your chances are gone, gone, gone!

pppps. Remember when I used to take pictures with a real camera and not just post my IG photos in blog posts? Yeah, I hardly do either. #stepupyourgameerin

  1. I gotta say, of all the bloggers I read, you definitely talk about pee the MOST by far.

    Just gotta lighten the mood. Glad your husband is ok!

    1. Hahaha but seriously - I do talk about it a lot. Bodily functions and I just have a way with one another ;)

  2. Melted shredded cheese on top of tortilla chips is my JAM. Topped with some salsa, it's what I had for dinner last night. Maybe not my most nutritious meal, but it hit the spot!

  3. Crap...I mean pee...I'm a pediatric nurse and I know nothing of this "men pass out" when pee thing. Must go research and encourage the men/boys in my house to sit! ;)
    What an amazing concert!!! I love Kelsea's voice and especially her Peter Pan song.

  7. I'm so glad he's okay! How scary. I've heard of that happening before. Sounds like it was a great concert!

  8. Two things: Last year the whole passing out while peeing thing happened to my brother! I had never heard of it before then either and it haven't heard of it since! It's just crazy! #2: melted cheese on tortilla chips with salsa might be my favorite thing ever and I eat it on the regular when my husband isn't home because when he is home he requires more for dinner than chips and salsa. :)

  9. The passing out thing happened to ME (a woman)! I got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and my twins were coming down the stairs so I diverted and walked them back up to their room...then I woke up with blood on my head and face (from hitting the wall) and they were standing over me. Apparently the full bladder can trigger vasovagal syncope and cause you to pass out. I had a full cardiac work-up to rule out more serious issues. Scary stuff! Random added info: I'm pretty sure I also had a concussion but didn't realize it until later, I got up 3 hours later and showered, got on a plane to NYC to meet a friend for a boutique buying show, and looked like a battered woman all wknd!

  10. Oh my gosh! When you do your blog redesign can you PLEASE make a tab that's devoted to your houses & decorating?? I love all your decorating ideas but it's a pain to have to scroll through all your posts to find the ones about your house or your decorating ideas (I know it's all about me wah wah). Just a suggestion. :D

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 :)
