The Girl {Behind the Blog}

Today, a little more about me! Hey, it's my blog and I can do what I want! 

I'm a country girl and will forever love spending time in the country, even though I live and work in the city. 

It's no secret that my family is they key to my life! I absolutely love and cherish them with all my heart. Without them, I wouldn't be the woman I am today.They  support me, laugh with me, laugh at me, encourage me, and just listen to me when I'm super emotional and having a rough day. 

What I'm loving:
My life! I've definitely had some ups and downs in the past, and I know that more are ahead of me, but I truly feel I'm in a great place in my life right now.

What I'm hating:
If I'm being honest, it's working two jobs.  I hate working two jobs!! It's really no secret. BUT, I know that it's what's needed right now in my life to support my little family, and I know it's not forever.  I'm blessed for the opportunity to work both jobs and to earn extra income. Some people struggle to find one job, and I have two.  I'm blessed, I know. :)

Current goals:
Save money! Colten and I have truly been working on this, and it's hard!  But, we've been doing pretty well for the most part.  I'm proud of us!
Better our (Colten and I's) relationship with God. This is a never-ending journey, but we are really trying to deepen our faith and relationship with God, together. 
Stay positive. With so much going on in life, it's easy to get stuck in the current mindset of negativity.  It's easy to throw yourself a pity party.  Instead, I'm striving to stay positive and truly cherish each and every day.  I can't say that I've always been able to do that, so I'm definitely improving!
Be a better blogger. This goal is mostly for myself, but also for my readers! I honestly have no idea how many of you are out there, but I know of a few that are faithful to reading my words of wisdom (ha!) and I'm very thankful! I'm hoping, praying, and striving to blog better about my life - have more heartfelt posts, more posts in general, and I'm going to ATTEMPT to take more time to organize my blog and posts better... Fingers crossed!

Biggest fear right now:
Honestly, my biggest fear right now is the unknown. I apparently like to be in control of things, and big changes scare me. I know it's all a part of life and God's big plan, but it's a genuine fear of mine.

Biggest worry:
I'm a general worry-er. I suffer from anxiety often. But I'd say my biggest worry right now is money. Although we're in a better place than we used to be, we've still got a long road ahead of us.  But we're definitely making great progress!

What I'm reading: 
I'm currently reading 'The Help' by Kathryn Stockett. Several co-workers and friends have not let up on their nagging kind reminders that I 'must read' this book and am way behind the rest of the world.  "Hurry up and read it!" they say.  "You'll love it!" they say.  We'll see ;).

I'm wishing that I'm able to realistically live up to the expectations of myself, my husband, and my family.


Song - I Wanna Channing all over your Tatum (y'all, watch this video!); but seriously, Blown Away by Carrie Underwood
Color - pink!
Phrase - When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.
Pastime - Lately, sleeping!
Animal - Dogs; I love my puppy! And yes, he's more than two years old, but he will forever be my little puppy. :)
Drink - I'm loving the Bud Light Straw-Ber-Ritas! Mmmmm.

A few defining moments of my life so far:
3. College
4. My wedding day (I really need to write about that..soon..)

What a day in my life looks like right now:
I will start by saying that this will not be exciting. I work...a lot!
I wake up at 4:00am and get to work at 6am for overtime. I leave that job at 4:30pm and go straight to job #2 and work until 9:00pm. I get home around 9:30pm, take a shower, grab some  food, kiss my husband, and go to sleep to do it all over again the next day. 

Driving to work...something I do ALL.THE.TIME.

So, there you have it! A little bit more about the girl behind the blog!

Hey! I'm super big on staying positive! Negativity just pisses me off. (LOL..sort of contradicted myself with a super negative sentence there...!) I know what you mean about worrying. I am a worrier at heart..and just can't help it. We just had our first child this March. Having her, (You can imagine all of the worries I could come up with having a baby around..) is helping me tremendously with letting things go.. and letting things just happen without fretting!!
I too love Blown Away by Carrie Underwood. I still can't believe how famous she got off of A.I. I still remember her audition video.. I believe she had never left her state before.. and then boom she is famous, just like that. (Waaay off topic.) Anyways, I've never tried these Strawberitas you speak of.. I live in Canada.. wonder if we have them yet..!
Anyways.. just thought I'd say a short (well it was meant to be short.. never ends up being that way) message to you!
