5 things

1.) The other day I asked C who her best friend was and she said "Mommy Char's best friend" it melted my heart. She says it every time you ask her too.  I love it. I know it won't last forever so I need to just soak it all in now and write it down so when she is older she can see that I really was a cool mom.  It kind of scares me that I have a two year old.  I am 26 and I have a two year old. I never ever ever thought this would be my life plan...but I have to say it has been pretty great, for the most part!

2.) The hubs leaves for a conference on Thursday in FLORIDA when it is like 7 degrees here.  I told him if he sends me a picture of a palm tree I might kill him.  I am not really looking forward to him being gone...but it will be great bonding with my little BFF I guess! I just miss him when he is gone.  I think it comes from being in a distance relationship with him in college for 2 years...I never want to do that again.  

3.) I am getting antsy about where we will be moving in the fall, we literally have no idea where it will be yet, and I am a planner, I would like to transfer schools if possible so I can finish my degree and I want to find a good place to live and mostly I just want to KNOW where the f we will be! We kind of think West like Seattle, Oregon, Colorado, Arizona...but not 100 percent certain because he hasn't even figured it out yet!! I just want to know by like April I think that would really help...

4.) We go to Florida in 28 days.  For my 27th birthday, I can't even wait to see grass again and be in warmer than 50 degree weather and to just get AWAY.  My bff crazy med school is coming with us and I seriously am so excited. 

5.) I think I might get bangs again, I grew them out kind of and I really liked them short.

 I haven't felt like blogging. So I just haven't forced it, but today I decided to come back.  Partly because today was so awesome. It snowed all day, I got my birchbox in the mail, crazy med school came to visit, and I had dinner at my fav restaurant with some of my fav girls I used to work with.  It was a pretty great day.  PLUS we got to have a photo shoot in our hello apparel sweatshirts which by the way are the softest most comfiest sweatshirts ever in life. 
I now feel like I ate an elephant because I ate so much tonight but oh my gosh so worth it.  I now need to work out, and get in bathing suit shape because my amazing hubs planned a trip to FL for my bday and crazy med school is coming too!!

snow day

We got about 12-13 inches of snow yesterday.  IT IS SO AWESOME!!! What isn't awesome is its -1 degrees here and feels like we can't enjoy it :( Oh well, I got a snow day and so did the hubs it has been a great day! We ventured out yesterday morning to take C around on her sled, she loves it.  We also played a little bit and C did NOT want to come inside.  It is supposed to warm up later this week (you know you are from MI when you think warm is 26 degrees...) so I am hoping for more playing in all of this AMAZING snow!! This winter has been awesome so far in the snow department, I love it.

Goals for 2014

Happy New Year! Me and the hubs went out with some of our best friends to a brewery and played Apples to Apples, and then went down town to watch the puck drop at midnight.  It was such a great night we had a blast! We hadn't been out on NYE in 2 years, so it was so nice to have my parents babysit and to get out of the house.  It started snowing that night and we got around 7 or 8 inches it is so beautiful.  
I have some goals I want to accomplish this next year:
I will cook more for my family
I will do well in school
I will be there more for myself and have more "me" time
I will spend more time without electronics with Charlotte
I will go on more dates with the hubs

I think these are attainable, and I have already cooked! I made Charlotte's birthday cake from start to finish.  I know it doesn't seem like much, but I just do NOT do it ever.  The hubs just always does and so I just don't, its not like I don't like to cook because I actually do like it but I just got so used to the hubs doing it, pretty much I got lazy.  SO I am changing it. Also I got lazy in school.  I just wasn't into it because I felt guilty blah blah blah. I won't go into it BUT again I am getting back on the doing well in school bandwagon.  I don't spend enough time on myself, for example I haven't had a hair cut in FOREVER.  First things first: I am going to get pampered.  I realized the other day that I carry my phone around everywhere with me when C said "Here mommy!" so proud of herself that she had GONE UPSTAIRS and gotten my phone for me.  So I will make it a point to NOT have it on me all the time.  The date thing? We need time together it is so necessary.  

In order to acheive a goal, you must do something about it.  
Ready. Set. Go.
