Confessions: Things You May or May Not Know About Me

I’ve been thinking about this blog post for a few days. Someone asked a group of people to share something about themselves that no one or very few people knew. I couldn’t think of anything at that moment, but have been mulling over that question since then. I have come up with a few things I will share with you, if you care to read them.

  • I have a serious obsession with Jesse McCartney. More his music than he himself, actually. The song Body Language is my happy song…which leads me to my next confession…
  • I know the dance to Body Language…and I learned it about 2 years ago…at the age of 24…
  • I only like to listen to music that I know. I love to sing and I can’t sing songs I don’t know. Usually, my only exposure to new music comes through Cody.
  • I always have these grand dreams of exercising and getting in shape, but I never do it. I say I don’t have time but I really do. 
  • I don’t care as much what I look like as I do what number is on the scale. Once the number gets where I want it, then I worry what I look like.
  • I get major food guilt. Like bad. Like I just ate a cookie and I feel guilty and bad. I hate that.
  • Back to music….I never once bought an N*Sync or Backstreet Boys CD. I am more of a 98* kinda girl. And I WISH they would do a reunion of some sort. I pray for it.
  • I LIVE for Thursday nights. Vampire Diaries and Secret Circle are my new TV obsessions. I have seriously been thinking about that all day today and I. Am. So. Excited. Thattodayisthursday.
  • I miss my past in the sense that it was fun while it lasted, but if I were to try to live that life again, I don’t think I could. I love the memories I have but am happy with the path I have chosen for my future.
  • The hardest thing in the world to me is to have faith. I like to see facts. Faith isn’t believing things you can prove. It’s believing things you can’t. It’s something I really have to work at. I don’t want the faith of Job. I’m afraid if I ask for that kind of faith, I’ll be put through what he went through. I feel like I’m already going through enough. 
  • I believe that I am where I am now solely because of decisions that I have made. I had a great foundation. I was raised in a Christian home with Godly parents. When I moved out, I tore most of that foundation down and started built myself a new one. Now I’m trying to tear that new foundation down and rebuild yet again one that’s worth working on. With the thought in mind that sometimes God has to break us down so we can be built up in a right way…I hope I’m almost done breaking. I feel like I can’t break anymore. I’m ready to start building back up. I’m working on it, anyway.
  • Oh, on a happier, lighter note…I love my Halloween costume. I’m going to be a flapper and I feel as though I was born in the wrong generation while wearing it.
  • And on a related note, I’m happy Cody decided to match me. This year will be legen…wait for it….dary. 
I think that’s it for now. It’s just a small insight into my mind! ❤

Sooo….we moved…

We decided, after lots of prayer and very little deliberation, to move in with Cody’s parents. We didn’t really have time to deliberate. We had a few situations arise that kind of made our decision for us. The main one being Cody’s job. He was at a place…that wasn’t a good fit. I won’t get into any detail because at this point it doesn’t really matter, but I was proud of him. He put his conscience and morals before money. I was SO proud of him. I know that he will be blessed for this decision. I am hoping that blessing comes in the form of another job, but we shall see. A couple of friends that I talk to via Facebook have offers suggestions, so we will be looking into those.

I just want to say a BIG thank you to those aforementioned Facebook friends. It’s amazing how I can feel so connected two people that I have only met once in person each, and poured my heart out to over the internet! Two great examples to me of faith.
An even BIGGER thank you to my lovely mother. She has been there for me in more ways than I can list. She has been a rock for me and a shining example of a Christian woman and mother. I ❤ her!
Oh man! Our good friends are MOVING to ANOTHER STATE….THIS WEEKEND! I can’t believe it’s already time! We’re going to miss you guys so much! I hope you come back for a visit soon! Like…next week?
So now that I’ve pretty much rambled about a few different things, I’ll let you get back to something productive!
