Life Updates

It's been a long time since I've written a blog post about what's actually going on in my life.
So let's do that today!
Because this is my blog and I can say what I want to. #cantstop #wontstop

November Goals
So I started one of my November Goals yesterday. 64oz of water a day. Do you know how much water that is? A lot. It's a lot. I think I went pee about 39 times yesterday. It's very annoying. However, I made my goal. Now to just continue that through November so when December rolls around I can increase that to 72oz a day. I know, I'm ridiculous. I'm okay with it.

Crying At Work
I teared up at work yesterday. Twice. Watching these 2 videos.. They're must sees!

Basketball Season
It's officially official.. College basketball season has started. No worries, I understand your confusion, since college football season isn't over yet. Coming from someone who works in college athletics, November is quite the stressful little month. Lots of sports are happening at once. I'm torn between being excited and being annoyed. Which is how I spend most of my life anyway, so really, what's new?

Christmas Decor
Last year I didn't decorate my apartment for Christmas, at all. Not one little twinkly light or one hint of green garland. This year I've decided I want a tree. So it's going to happen. I've already started looking for a cheap-ish one and some affordable decorations. Or I'm considering DIY all of the decorations. We'll see. I'm also going to make a Christmas door wreath. Since my Fall door wreath was so ridiculously easy and I'm so in love with it.

Need For Change
Last night at 7pm, I rearranged my kitchen. I moved my refrigerator. I know, what the hell?! The layout was just annoying me and I decided that it needed to be changed right that minute. Patience is not something I'm good with.

I'm 90% sure I've broken my little pinky toe. I've stubbed it 3 times in the last 2 weeks. This last time I did it, pretty sure it just went ahead a broke. It's a nice color now too. Sigh.. Oh, and then I broke a fingernail on Monday night, all the way down to the skin. It hurts real, real bad. I'm also aware I'm being incredibly whiny and obnoxious.

Things October Taught Me
I discovered the importance of baby steps. I want so many things out of this life. My list is almost never ending. I cross off 1 thing and add 4. It took me a lot longer than most to figure out what I want to spend the rest of my life doing, but I've figured it out. Now that I have, I want it all right this minute. I may have mentioned that I'm not very good with patience. However, I'm really trying every day to remind myself that the journey can be just as amazing as my destination. In the end, that's what life is all about, right? Right.
This whole journey thing has forced me to think of all small steps to accomplish to help me get to the big steps that I'll need to accomplish to achieve my goals. It's like a really, really long staircase. I'm down at the bottom and I have so many stairs I need to climb. I'm trying not to be annoyed by the whole thing and just enjoy it. I'll let you know how that's going.

I guess that's my life right now.
Just hangin' out.
Climbin' stairs and what not.
Livin' the dream.
And now I'm gonna end this before it gets out of control.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, my loves! 


  1. Yuck I hope your toe feels better! I broke mine twice by hitting it on things (I never went to the doctor but it was obviously broken lol) and now I can't bend it at all, it's ugly and gross.

  2. I'm pretty sure my ankle dying so I'm falling apart right there with ya :( but yayyy for college basketball!

  3. Ugh, I know how much breaking a nail down to the skin hurts so I don't think you're being obnoxious and/or whiny at all!

  4. always be excited for college basketball.

  5. If being a whiny baby about a broken nail is wrong.... I don't wanna be right. I will always whine about that too, oops.

    You'll adjust to drinking the water soon enough! I try to drink 100oz a day and I actually don't feel like I pee more often than normal (maybe 3-4 times throughout the work day?). It's helpful if you get a cute cup (I like the ones with a lid + straw, mine's 24oz) and just make it a goal to fill it up however many times per day. And Mio and Crystal Light are good for if you get bored of straight water!

  6. That wreath is gorgeous. I can't wait to see what you come up with for a Christmas one!

  7. I love your wreath! its wayyy better than my fall wreath! and we will have to make a pact to both decorate for Christmas! I had a little Lowe's bought Charlie Brown tree last year and that was it haha

  8. You moved a whole fridge??? Nice!!! I am in love with that wreath. Cant wait to see the holiday/Christmas one!



I love you people! Let's be friends.
