Monday Musings

I know it's been a month of Sunday's since I've posted. I promise my life will return to "normal" on July 15...That's a bold face lie... our boxes will be delivered on July 15th to our new house, I'm going to be knee deep in boxes until July 25th I'm sure.

I can't unpack on box one day at a time. I can't rest until it's all unpacked and everything is in it's place.

I'm in Arkansas for the next two days "supervising" the packers. I really hope they don't kick me out of my own house.

whoops the packers just got here... EARLY.. I like it

chat with you guys later...

Happy Monday...

Sunshine Award

Ashley at nominated me for the sunshine award... echem... excuse me while I adjust my halo. I love meeting new bloggers especially when they don't sugar coat things and keep it real. 

on to the questions.

1) Do you have any kids? If so, how did you choose the names? If not, do you already have names picked out?
I have an 18 year old stepson Devin and a 3 year old daughter Hannah. My, son came with a name..small joke. Hannah's name was Ava until the month I delivered. I went with Hannah because I wanted a biblical name.

2) When and where do you normally blog?
I used to blog at work, now I blog in my parents dining room, until we close on our house. I always blog in the mornings. I'm an early bird, and quite frankly the morning is the only time I get to myself.

3) What is your favorite book?
hm? The five people you meet in heaven has always been a favorite, as well as Heaven is for real, A Million Little Pieces, and the Hunger Games. loved all of them. I can't pick just one.

4) What is the best gift you have ever received?
I am the hardest person to buy for, If I want something I just go get it. It drives M crazy. I guess the best gift that I got without purchasing myself would be the swing for our backyard. I love that thing.

5) What position do you sleep in?
oh man, I'm all over the place. I usually fall asleep on my stomach but wake up on my back most of the time.

6) What blog do you read every post they write?
I always read Year Twenty Nine, Macke Monologues,  and Skinny Meg

7) If you could only go to one fast food place for the rest of your life where would you go?
First of all, gross but if I had to choose it would be Chipolte because they serve wine salad

8) What is one question you would ask Oprah if you could?
Does "Can I have your autograph" count?

9) If money was not a factor, what is one gift you would buy your significant other?
A weekend package to attend the Kentucky Derby.

10) What is one characteristic (not physical) would you change about yourself?
I'm too dang sensitive. I get on my own nerves

11) What is your favorite thing about your best friend?
Kindness. Sense of humor, her love of wine, the list goes on and on.

What' I've been up to

Did you think I went off and left my 3 readers?! It's been nothing short of a crazy house around here.
M, as you know has been in STL, with work. H and I joined him last week. We're staying at my parents house. Which really works out to our benefit. Their house has always been the "Home Base" when were here. You never know whose going to pop in and say hello. We absolutely love being here. It's nice to be around family and friends again. I sometimes forget that I don't have to pack everything in a day. It really hasn't hit that we are moving back.

Speaking of friends. Did I mention I'm exactly one mile away from this GIRL. yes, one mile.. door step to door step. She measured, and that my friend is why I love her. She makes morning runs fun-ish.

First thing on the list when we arrived in STL, was to watch this guy graduate.

I've been apart of Devin's life since he was 10. What's not to love about this kid? He's smart, sweet, funny and I didn't have to waddle my prego ass around to get this kid in my life. WINNING. We are so proud of him.

That's where the fun ended, the next day. I hit the ground running, in the house hunting. I mean I LOVE being here at my parents but let's just be honest. We need a home. Thank the big guy above our Realtor is a God sent. It's literally like looking for houses with my mom. She makes it fun and she totally get's me. House hunting has been an adventure. You would not believe how some people live. We've seen it all : Birds, dogs, mean fat black cats, weird smells, weird neighbors, canoes... yes... ol boy had a canoe in their house... Those houses didn't make the cut.

I don't want to jinx us, and clearly I have to tell the world all of our business.. I think we may have found a house... we're in the "have your people call our people stage" The joys of relocation.

H of course is loving all of these changes. She loves being in STL. She still thinks STL is my parents house and not the actual city. bless her. My sister and sister in law have been such a big help in this move. We don't have to worry about entertaining H. They have her social calender booked.

Running has not been up to par but it's happening and so is the HH run. I'm not really sure what I was thinking when I signed up for the 5k BEFORE the Half Mary on Saturday. oh wait it's because I'm a medal whore and I'll do just about anything for a medal.

I'm really looking forward to this weekend in KC with YEAR TWENTY NINE and MACKE MONOLOGUES.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!
