Playing catch-up

Oh my goodness what a week! There have been some crazy highs and lows - so what better way to play catch-up than with blurbs? 


*Some of those crazy lows were due to my recent post about my "soft" diagnosis. It's weird because I wasn't overly emotional writing it, but the minute I started getting comments/tweets/texts about it, it was like the flood gates opened. You are all wonderfully supportive and I am thankful for each and every message you sent.

*That was one of my lows - but one of my highs was definitely seeing my Stratejoy essay go live. Nervous, scared, excited all meshed into one big ball of emotions which manifested itself by making me cry while listening to the soundtrack from Rent. (I need more sleep).

*Speaking of sleep, I've been patting myself on the back big time for reading so much. I finished four books in the past week! However, my intention of getting to bed at a good time? Big FAT fail. It is not working at all - I need suggestions as to how to make this possible!

*Another one of my highs? Seeing a post I wrote appear on The Violet's blog. Not only was it awesome to see it up there, I'm talking about one of my favorite subjects...love letters.

*This weekend I'm going to start one of the decoration projects for the mister's 30th birthday party. I'm not going to share pictures before hand because Ben and I agreed I would surprise him (I don't want him getting a sneak peek), but I will be taking pictures of the process to share after - promise!

*The main living areas of our apartment look pretty freakin' awesome right now. However, our room? Kind of a hot mess. Normally this would bug me, but I've been really embracing it. At some point I will have to clean/organize/get it all together but today is not that day and I'm totally okay with that.

*I have so many ideas for posts floating around in my head I honestly don't have enough days to review all the books I've been reading. I'm going to still review a few here and there, but if you want to keep up with it all and read my reviews friend me on goodreads - I try to make my reviews on there just as thorough. 

*Ben has the whole day off tomorrow so we are packing in time together. We're going to start with getting our taxes done (we know how to party), run errands, see a movie, and have more than one meal together. I can't wait! 

How has your week been? Have you had any crazy high or lows? Happy happy Friday!

Yea for a day together with Ben! :) Hopefully you start off your day by finding out you are getting a nice tax return. That is why I enjoy doing my taxes! ;)

You have had a full week! I need to catch up on your posts. I am so behind on life, it's not even funny. I'll get caught up eventually...

Enjoy your day with Ben tomorrow! My week started off with a crazy HIGH AND LOW at the same time - giving my notice at work. So excited for my new opportunity but also SO sad to leave an amazing boss and coworkers!

What a week for you!

I didn't realize Ben was turning 30! How exciting! Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve. ;)

Have a good weekend!

When Knight and I have days together we do similar things... errands, shopping, sometimes even cleaning the house like we did this past weekend. We so know how to party =)
