Though I didn’t get to fly out there and spend a long weekend with her like I’d originally planned to do, I did get to enjoy dinner and hang-out time at her apt during two of my work trips. So stinkin’ proud of the life she’s built out there over the last couple of years. Can’t wait for the next visit, lp. 🙂
Like visiting Amy, my intentions were to visit her intentionally for a long weekend. I figured this one would be easy to do since we only lived about seven hours apart. Unfortunately, I only got to visit with her and Josh for one night! Jen cooked us a great dinner, and the three of us enjoyed sitting around hanging out all night, regardless that they both had to go to work the next day.
Crossed this one off the list back in August. After visiting with Jen in Enterprise, I woke up and headed to Destin. Once I got the RC job, I knew that there would be VERY little time for personal travel, and I was definitely correct! I’m glad I knocked this trip out early. Ashley has a gorgeous apartment and our weekend together was super fun like usual. Loved loved LOVED hanging out at Amanda’s for a while, playing with Lynlee, and meeting/falling in love with baby Maddox.
Definitely one of the best days throughout the last 10 months! Me and one of my best friends Emily bought groupons for this little adventure back in January. I’m so glad we spent the money early because we probably wouldn’t have had the nerve to actually go through with it otherwise! It was incredible.
OH did I! In the hustle and bustle of getting ready for Germany, I took myself to to PX on post and splurged on my camera. I justified getting the exact one I wanted for two reasons. 1) I had been working my booty off with RC and making some extra moolah. 2) We’re already spending enough of this last-minute trip, so what’s another X amount of money? Swiping that card was hard, but I am SO glad I have that cam. It’s my favorite.
The biggest meal I cooked was the night before I left for Germany back in October. I was trying to get rid of some perishable food in my house since I’d be gone for 15 days, so I invited five of my friends over. I did an app, salad, and dinner, which was followed by a surprise cookie cake to celebrate my sweet friend Michele’s acceptance to nursing school. They helped keep my distracted and calm my nerves before the big flight overseas. I had friends over several times throughout the last 10 months for dinner, which has always been a ton of fun! CAN’T WAIT to host cookouts with Jamie.
BUST. I made $42, and then Teddy locked me out of my running car. Remember that? NEVER AGAIN. Resorting to donating to the thrift store and/or selling on Craigslist from now on.
The day after Jamie left I signed up with run one with my friends Amber and Christy on December 3rd. I ended up having a very good friend move her wedding up to the same date, and absolutely could not miss her wedding date. I am bummed that I did not cross off my number one goal, but seeing my friend get married was worth it, and there was definitely be more races. Jamie and I are signed up for the Country Music half-marathon in Nashville on April 28th.
I feel terrible that I didn’t cross this one off the of the list, but there was literally no time for personal travel outside of my job. Still trying to plan on getting down there asap.
No excuses for this one. The idea of sitting down and doing the photobook was never appealing to me, but I’ll get around to it one of these days.
I thought this one would be easy, but not so much. I haven’t settled down with one specific church yet because I have this thing in my head about wanting to select a church WITH Jamie, rather than him come home and say to him “I’ve picked out our church, hunny!”. I looked into bible studies at a church I’ve attended the most, but with my traveling I could never commit to attending. Hoping to find a good couples study in the near future. My heart needs it!
Feel so bad that I keep missing out on his races, but traveling 4+ hours one-way during my one day off of traveling that week just wasn’t going to happen. Proud of my brother and still anxious to cross this off the list!
Personal travel wasn’t gonna happen.
Yeah, right. No time. Definitely wasn’t any kind of priority this year, and I really didn’t miss it.
Started this goal in October, and did well for about a week. News of the trip to Germany popped up, and the month of October then became consumed with Germany and Jamie. That’s about the extent of my excuses. 🙂
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
