Confessions + a GIVEAWAY!

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

I'm baaack! It felt so great to "detox" from social media for a while but I did miss blogger land! Today I'm just going to word vomit everything that has been on my mind lately. And if you don't feel like reading, make sure you jump to the bottom to enter an amazing giveaway!

-I am having minor major anxiety about the fact that I don't have our Christmas card picked out yet. Or even a picture that I like. My Type A personality does NOT like this. This was our Christmas card from last year… I loved it! With it being our first married Christmas, it was SO easy being able to use a wedding photo. Can't I just use a wedding picture every year?!

-I was a wreck last week when our doggy had some sort of stomach bug. I hated seeing her sick! And I know it's going to be so much worse with kids.

-I have spent soo much time with my niece and nephew lately and it makes my heart so happy! They are getting SO big and have the cutest personalities.

-I haven't even started Christmas shopping. I am usually done by now. Whew.

-24 days until I am DONE with PA school. I can't even express the happiness this brings me. Tears of joy y'all.

-My birthday is Saturday and I'm kind of dreading it because I hate birthdays.

-I wanted to decorate for Christmas this past weekend but I felt like people would judge me. So I am making myself wait 2 more weeks. I am "that" Christmas person.

-We joined a new gym a few weeks ago and I have been taking cycling classes again. I get so burnt out at the gym so these classes have made me excited to work out again!

-I won the husband jackpot. He is so supportive, encouraging, etc. etc. He makes my life 1,000x sweeter.

-It's slightly terrifying going on job interviews and trying to decide what I want to do with the rest of my life. I mean, I will be a PA but from there the options are endless. Do I want to do pediatrics, orthopedics, family medicine, surgery, etc. Ah! I am terrified of choosing the wrong job and being miserable 1 week in.

And now for a GIVEAWAY! So excited to be co-hosting this amazing giveaway for a Erin Condren 2016 Classic Life Planner. With the New Year just a few weeks away, it is the perfect time for a new planner and a fresh start! Giveaway will end on Monday, November 16th!

  4. What a great giveaway!!
    I can't believe you'll be done in 24 days!! Thats SO exciting!!!! And a big yay for supportive husbands who leave adorable notes to make your day just that much better! So glad you're liking your gym class--it definitely helps to keep things fresh. When I get bored is when I stop wanting to work out.
    Don't worry--you still have time for holiday cards!!! PLENTY of time!!!!

  5. Glad to have you back-I've been terrible at updating my blog recently as well😳

    Where did you find your Christmas card? I'm working on our right now and haven't found any that I like. But I like your play on words!

  6. Happy early birthday girl! No need to dread your bday, your gorgeous, successful and 24 days away from being done with PA school! Celebrate! And yeah... I haven't started Christmas shopping yet either. Eek! Glad your enjoying the gym again with your new classes too! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  7. YAY! So glad you are back, I was sad when I saw your blog was offline, glad it's not a permanent thing. A detox is always great!

    I love Christmas cards and you have plenty of time still. Have you tried Paper Culture? They have a 50% off coupon on facebook and the cards are ALL printed on recycled paper. We did a collage of all of our favorite trips for our 2nd card, it's one of my faves.

  8. So excited that you'll be done in 24 days!! Welcome back girl - you were missed!!! I just ordered our cards last night so you are not far behind at all!!! There are plenty of gorgeous pictures - especially the ones from your vacation earlier this year...hello sock bun! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  9. Welcome back - it's nice to have you back around!! 24 days?! That's amazing and will be here so soon - I bet you'll be enjoying the holiday season extra this year! I was feeling the same way about our cards - it was so easy last year with a wedding photo! I just had my mom come over and snap some pictures of us with the fall scenery. I can't wait to order ours next week - minted is my favorite!

    Fabulous giveaway too :)

  10. Welcome back!! So glad to have you back and so glad that you're a short 24 days away from being done with PA school!!!! I love your Christmas card from last year! We always wait till our FSU weekend with my family so I can get my dad to take our pictures for our Christmas card - while my sister complains in the background ;) Now that we have a niece, I am so jealous that your niece and nephew live next door! I miss her so much and it's only been a week lol

  11. Ahh so glad you're back! I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping and just starting to think about a card. I need to get going though. I don't want it to sneak up on me. 24 days?! I know that's an amazing and terrifying feeling. Job hunting and figuring out where you want to go is difficult. Praying for peace and direction for you!

  12. I have the exact same fears about choosing the wrong specialty- I know that we can switch it up but I just hope I love my new job. Still no interviews over here soooo that's a little depressing. Hopefully they will come soon :/

    And I haven't even THOUGHT about Christmas shopping. That will probably come after graduation lol.
