Five things Friday

This week has been insane crazy. When my alarm went off this morning I was so confused. Raise your hand if you think we should be off the entire week of Christmas and New Year’s?! Going back to work is no fun.

I have yet to take down my Christmas tree. I just love how pretty it is at night. It needs to come down and my house needs to be put back in order. Holidays are over! Normal life can now resume. Now I just need to host a wine night and bribe my friends to help me take it down. They'll do anything for wine.

I got on the treadmill last night for the first time since November. I haven’t ran since THANKSGIVING. It was brutal. Is it sad that I’m excited about my new play list and my long run that will take place (on the treadmill) tonight? It’s time to get back to the grind.

New Year’s Resolutions are in full bloom. One of our major resolutions is to really stick to the budget and stop frivolous spending. Meaning: Amie stop going to Target for dish washing soap and coming home with bag full of random stuff and no dishwashing soap. It happens to the best of us. I have challenged myself to the 52 week money challenge. You can read more about it here. I’m happy to say I put my dollar in this week. (Yes it was four quarters because I NEVER keep cash on me)

One of the things I really want to work on this year is being a better wife. M is so patient so giving and so kind. I’m the total opposite. I freak out over the little things, I’m loud, I have no patients and I have to remind myself to be kind. ALWAYS. Ugh, we all fall short of the Glory of God right? I came across “Wife after God”. It’s a 30 day Marriage devotional for wives. I’m in love with it. It’s an easy read, it’s to the point and it is already helping me. Wife After God

This weeks obsession has been the song Dark Horse by Katy Perry. I’m normally not a Katy Perry Fan but this song is my jam this week!

  1. I'll have to check out that song. I'm the worse when I go to Target. That dang dollar spot gets me every single time.
