Five on Friday

Whew, what a week! Justin and I have had a ton going on this month between my birthday and my mother-in-law's birthday AND wedding! Lets get right down to it!

My MIL got married on Sunday. The ceremony was super fast and the same officiant that married Justin and I, also married her! It was such a good time. I loved spending time with my parents and all of my in-laws!

Justin's birthday is next week! We are having a celebration this weekend with some friends. The party is 90's themed so there will be Mario Kart, cootie catchers, and kool-aid. It's been fun looking through all of the things that I grew up with and bringing them back! 

Speaking of next week.. it is about to be October. Wait, what?! Halloween in a month?! Our friends have an annual Halloween blow out party and costumes are mandatory. Last year Justin and I totally hit it out of the park and we are struggling this year with ideas. Send help!
In case you didn't believe me. Here is a throwback from October 2015. 

Okay so hang in there with me for this short story. I go to the gym every evening after work. I rarely skip the gym and I usually start on the treadmill while Justin plays some basketball. I had just got on the mill -- I was 11 minutes in and a guy started walking towards me smiling. First thought? He is going to ask me on a date. So I immediately looked down at my phone and turned up my music. He came right up to me and said "can I ask you a question?" Still smiling at me, I said sure. He then proceeded to ask if I had a boyfriend was upstairs. Here we go. So I told him no, not a boyfriend and showed him my shiny ring. His demeanor totally changed and answered "Okay fine, your husband. He got hurt upstairs." Not what you expected, right? Me either. Poor Justin fell on another guy during an intense basketball game. Not only did I feel so arrogant, Justin sprained his ankle and is now in a walking boot.

Wrapping this up on a positive note. For those of you J.Crew lovers, listen up! Their flannel popovers are back and just as comfortable as ever! I bought the red/navy plaid and love it!

Happy Friyay!

Pressing Restart

For those of you who know me personally or followed along previously, you know that I had been blogging on and off since we bought our home in 2014, the reason I started the blog. Our home was considered "turn-key" but in my eyes, it need a lot of TLC. My plan had always been to blog through all of our projects and unfortunately, life got in the way. 

The wedding planning and the home improvements put blogging on the backseat. It always way in the back of my mind and I hope to be able to share those lost moments before catching up on the current stuff. I hope to use this space as a diary and I hope you follow along!

I thought it would be fun to do a Q&A post just to get the juices flowing! I always love reading these from other bloggers I follow. It makes me think about how I would have answered the questions and I like to see what their responses are. Let’s get started, shall we?

1. Are you left or right handed?
Left. Not the answer you expected, right?!

2. Do you have a nickname?
It used to be Red. That didn’t stick and sometimes people will call me Mish. Other than that it is usually just babe :)

3. Do you have siblings?
Yes! A brother and a sister. I’m the baby.

4. Do I want kids?
Absolutely. We are so excited for that chapter in our life. We just have a few chapters in between now and then.

5. Are you a morning or night person?
Definitely a night person. Although as time goes on, I am starting to like mornings better. It feels so nice to wake up and be productive. I just love sleeping and lying in bed in the mornings for a while way too much.

6. Do you prefer, sweet or salty foods?
Sweet all the way. I have the biggest sweet tooth and cannot go to bed without a little chocolate for dessert. 

7. What was your favorite childhood television program?

8. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

9. What is usually your first thought when you wake up?
Usually just "why am I awake? Can I just keep sleeping?" I absolutely love sleeping in and not getting up until the moment that if I don't get up, I am going to be late to something or somewhere. 

10. What do you usually think about right before falling asleep?
Anything and everything I can. I am a mind racer when it comes to falling asleep. You know, the standard "did I lock my car? Is the alarm set? What will I wear tomorrow?"

11. What bad habits do you have?
I hate admitting this. I bite my nails when I am nervous or anxious. I have gotten better about it over the years though.

12. What personality traits do you look for in a partner?
Being motivated and being honest. I guess I found a good one :)

13. Are you a clean person or a messy one?
Clean. Oh man am I clean. I will struggle with this one when I have kids behind me messing up things I just straightened up. 

14. What is one thing you miss about being a kid?
Having summers off. All you teachers out there better cherish every summer moment off.

15. What is one thing you love about being an adult?
Having financial independence. Woof, what an adult answer. 

Thank you for any and all of you who want to follow along as I backtrack on some of my favorite memories and while I create new ones!
