Lazy Day

So my plan for this morning was to get my butt out of bed bright and early and head to the gym for a nice butt kicking work out. Umm..yea. Then I woke up..hadn't slept that great..and then I pull myself up to look over my headboard and out the window..and see the cold, snowy weather that's having a party out there. Honestly..who wants to get out of bed when the weather is that uninviting? Especially to get out of bed to go get sweaty and sore?

Alright..I know that working out is great for you and I really really want to get back into a regular routine (my wedding dress is strapless after all) at the gym..but my room is a mess, I now have the day off, and have got to spend the entire morning getting ready for my lunch with the girls and taking Britt shopping :D'll take the whole morning. Plus I've already had a huge cup of coffee and let's face it..that addicting beverage is not gonna do anything beneficial for my tummy while I'm working away on the treadmill. :-) TMI..yea whatever.

So what I'm making one excuse after the other :) Just you wait until I blog about the fun adventures I will encounter'd have chosen a morning with Regis & Kelly, fuzzy robe, hot cup of coffee, snow flurries outside, and the enjoyable company of you reading my blog as well :)

By the way..keep a look out for some updates on my photography blog coming up in the next few days. I've got a couple exciting appointments lined up over the weekend! Haven't gotten to shoot anyone since Krystal's grad pics and I'm excited to get back behind the lens again :) Anyone need any portraits??

Happy Thursday

New Year - New Hair

I am sorry to inform the crazy amounts of individuals that actually take the time to read my blog :) and the most interesting rants I have rolling in my head from time to time, but I have not given any more thought to the topic I discussed in my last blog. Well..I have..but definitely none worth sharing. If I would even be able to actually put those bits and pieces into words at the moment.
Maybe tomorrow :)

So anyway..on my mini road trip up to Fort Collins tonight to see my love :-) I kept getting caugh off guard by the strange dark haired woman in my rear view mirror :P alright that was cheesy and I know I look 17..but I love getting a totally different hair cut. It sort of revamped and refueled my motivation and hopes for making this year different in more ways than just a hair cut.

So far I love my new job. Not that I foresee it being any other wise..that I might hate it. I really do enjoy it a lot. It's so incredibly refreshing to have a change of pace, even if that pace is three times as fast and crazy as before, and to be around new people. Nevertheless, tomorrow will be my first day off in 5 days and I cannot wait to spend my entire day curled up on the couch (with occasional errands..maybe the gym in between) and watch terrible tv all day :-)! And bore you guys to death with my ever interesting blogs :)

Oh yes..and a couple pictures of my new do :)

Word vomit

I have come to accept a characteristic of mine that I tend to get excited about things very quickly from the get go..and then sort of lose interest. That might not be the right word for it, but I've wanted to sit down and blog for the past couple of weeks..but always felt that all the things that are rolling around in my mind just weren't ready to come out just yet. And maybe they still aren't..but then I also ask myself "will they ever be?"

This past Friday I had a wonderful coffee date with my lovey Britt, and a quick coffee turned into a three hour life reflection about school, family, and being a 20something growing woman. After our last sips of coffee had long gone cold and we were still talking I felt an exhale of relief sort of wash over me. I had been able to babble on about the things that had been bugging me to someone that I know would understand, and they not only accepted it, but were able to level with me and understand where I was coming from. (Thank you by the way Britt :) I cannot wait till we do it again!)

Still..even though I felt great as I went about the rest of my day, I still go back and forth on the things that are in the back of my mind and really should be more in the foreground. Not that I am anywhere near making a decision at the moment about this situation (I know you're all dieing to know what exactly it is :P) but maybe I go about making decisions in my life the same way I get excited about new things?! Maybe the fact that this year has literally opened a horizon of possibilites for me has also sort of overwhelmed me. And it could be possible that I am simply excited about this new sense of direction, that I don't feel trapped on one road or stuck with one career choice, identity, or at the end of the day, one decision. Don't the smallest decisions have the biggest impact on us?

Either I am experiencing a strange case of writer's block..or maybe I'm simply not ready to fully think aloud about what is going on at the moment. My hesitation about choosing my every word that I type and my biting of my lower lip tells me that I might just have to leave it at that for now. If you took the time to read over my senseless babble I apologize for boring you to death for the last ten minutes. But maybe you have your own thoughts on this random vomit of words, but I think this blog was just that..a vomit of words that desperately needed out..and might help me in finding clearity on the decision that lies ahead. Stay tuned!
