things on a monday

  • I’m off today, and thank goodness, because I’m fucking exhausted. My body hurts, including my head. I feel like I’ve been through a battle. It’s fucking cray.
  • 1300 mg of Tylenol hasn’t even touched this headache. Ugh.
  • Oh and TMI I know, but my body is so very pissed that I’ve even induced a period out of fucking nowhere. (I have a Mirena IUD so periods are not a thing for me anymore.)
  • I’ve managed to get a few things done around the house, however. So there’s that. We are slowly returning to normal life.
  • I rediscovered my fall/winter dresses and boots in the upstairs closet, and it’s almost like I just went on a shopping spree. Yay!
  • Speaking of shopping, I’ve spent a good chunk of my afternoon adding stuff to my Love List on Modcloth. Christmas is coming up, after all. *hint, hint, husband.
  • Husband. *insert all the heart eyes*
  • I have to wake up hella early tomorrow (think 4 am) to get to KC on time for a court hearing on my very first WDMO case. There is a little more than 6-ish hours (round trip) of driving in my future. Meh.
  • But…tomorrow night is our very first night alone since the wedding and I CANNOT WAIT.
  • I may feel like hell right now, but life is oh so very good.


Are our friends trying to tell us something? 

This isn’t even all of it. There are at least five bottles not pictured. 


One of my vows to D was that I would keep his whiskey cabinet well stocked, so this helps. Haha. 

Chris and Jess bought us four bottles of wine. Each bottle has a label marking it for our first, fifth, tenth, and fifteenth anniversaries. So fucking cute! 

Our most interesting gift? A giant boxed filled with candy and underneath the candy was a nearly pornographic rendering of Beauty & the Beast. Considering the source, it’s fucking perfect really. 

I love our friends. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. 


It’s hard to sleep when your brain is just going, going, going. So much to think about. 

Now that the wedding is over, I finally have the time to get excited about the honeymoon. That’s going to be epic. Oh and the holidays! I’m very much looking forward to Thanksgiving. And Jackson’s birthday is in a few weeks so I have a party to plan. He’s going to be eight!!! How the hell did that happen? Then it will be Christmas before we know it. And…I think we’re going to host another NYE party.
