where i'm at.

{photo credit}

I started this last year in July - remember? Okay, not really.
I wanted to continue to update it every few months so I did it again in November.

So here I am again four months later....

Date: March 12, 2012

My Initials: JLD

Age: 26

Size: Medium top & sadly I type that I'm back in a 7/8 bottoms...
I hate it. But yes, I've put on happy weight that makes me sad.

Friday Nights: Either spent at home chill-axing, Pure Romance Parties or
Dinner with friends.

Hair Style: I did just cut 2" off my length but it's still
rather long and blond.

Favorite place to dine out: Lately Outback with the Hubs or Mellow
Mushroom with our friends.

Favorite Outfit: My brown cargo pants, my blue plaid shirt {but not together}& also my blazers.

Love Life: Completely happy. Wouldn't change anything. I would define Aaron and I "trying to grow our roots". Sounds lame but right now we are trying to focus on us & enjoy lifes little moments together.
Home Life: Great. Still trying to grasp my cooking talent. It struggles but getting better. We stay home a lot and enjoy 'Life in the Slow Lane' - really loving it. Aaron and I joined a kickball team - SO.MUCH.FUN. Our team name is a little craZy - BuntZ N KuntZ & they named me "Juicy J", Mommas gonna love that one. Ha! We practice/play on Sundays. Fishing season began back in January & Turkey season is days away from being here. That being said I noticed Aaron is being SO sweet and practicing his Turkey calling while on deliveries at work. And I didn't even has to ask. Whoa! Book study "The Politically Incorrect Wife" just ended for me but we see another one in the near future - I think it's great. - Morning Coffee with Momma is no longer morning coffee, sad I know but I had to manage my time and put my "balance" in order. I now do all my laundry, dishing, cleaning, & catch up on Ellen Shows in the morning - I DO still go see her for a few minutes if I have time usually about once a week. I found a new level of stress that I don't seen to have so much. Joe {Aaron's friend} is single again {sorry Joe} so I've gained my what we used to call him "my second boyfriend" back. {We love you Joe} He's joins us for dinner a lot throughout the week... and weekends.

TV shows: The Bachelor - Ben Flajnik {Monday Nights}, The Ellen Degeneres Show-Duh, & The River - which we both think is cheesy however we continue to watch it.

Extra time: Aaron LOVES working in his shed {I think it's so sexy} & I've recently been into stocking up on good kitchenware - otherwise known as keeping Willow House in business but hosting parties.

What excites me: *Monday nights watching The Bachelor {even though it's a lame season} * coming home to a clean house? Yeah, I'm getting old.* Recently just found a "Sloppy Joe" recipe that I happened to like - Aaron said it tasted "perfect but wasn't slopp enough" - Whatever that means. Being I'm not a sloppy joe fan, I was pumped about it. Again, I'm getting old. *Definitely Kick ball *counting down the days until St. Pattys Day {it's on a Saturday - 7 Days}* our cruise to the Bahamas in April {40 days}
*My iPhone *Draw Something *Angry Birds *Daylight savings was yesterday - I can actually leave work & still see light.

A moment I never want to forget:  Sitting at Fatz eating dinner with a group of friends & Mama J asked "So, how's married life? Anything changed?" And Aaron answered Yeah, I feel it's changed me. For the good, I think we have a different outlook on things - something about that made me feel so special.

This is written perfect - describes how we view our life to-a-tee right now.
