Random Musings

1. We mall walked again yesterday. I don't know why we didn't think of doing this sooner!
2. I am seriously starting my New Year diet/lifestyle change TODAY. No more excuses, today is the day!
3. Garth and my brother made a bet on the Rose Bowl. If Penn State won, we had to make them dinner. If USC won, they had to make dinner. We won the bet so we are going over for dinner tonight, yay!
4. I am beyond excited about our one year anniversary trip. We have been searching and discussing this forever and it was so hard to find what we were looking for. We either spent all our money to get to a tropical location and gave up the luxury hotel. OR spent all of our money on a luxury hotel and could only stay for a weekend. Then we found it, just far enough for a fun roadtrip and romantic and luxurious without the insane pricetag. Perfection. We are going to ski and drink hot chocolate and wander around the village and it will be so romantic!
5. I have to work tomorrow, meh! I really can't complain though because I only have to work about 4 Saturdays out of the whole year. And this is a small event, it's just waking up early on a Saturday that I'm not looking forward to.
6. I just ended that sentence above with a preposition and I hate doing that!
7. I am meal planning next week, hello domesticated!
8. I still need a hair cut.
9. We need to go grocery shopping. Garth has been out of shaving cream for over a week and his beard needs to go.
10. Can't wait for American Idol next week!!
11. I just made Garth a doctor's appt - I feel like such a wife.
12. We browsed a maternity store yesterday because we're so weird AND not planning on kids for at least another 2 years.
13. Garth and I doing a Song of Solomon study by Tommy Nelson. So awesome!!
14. I'm pretty sure I'll never be the wife who cooks her husband dinner every night or sews his missing buttons, but the house will always be clean and his laundry will always be done and put away!
15. Garth is super excited Texas won the Fiesta Bowl Monday night. He woke me up with all his cheering.
16. Thankful football is almost over so I get my husband back.

I am so JEALOUS of your anniversary trip!!!! Seriously, will you pack me i your suitcase?

Serious Shopaholic said...

Unfortunately, in my house, once football season is over, it's basketball time. I can cheer for my team with the best of them, but I don't see any reason in watching every single other game the entire season! I love the random musings!

Rachel said...

I love these on Friday from you!!! It's like a glimpse of what your doing and what's to come. Good luck on the lifestyle change...and of course being domesticated ...your so cute!

What a great anniversary trip! You guys are going to have a awesome time!

I loved #6 - I also hate ending sentences with prepositions!

Thanks for cheering on the Sooners. I still can't believe that game!! :(

We've been thinking about trying England for ours.

Following Him said...

You are not alone with ending sentences with prepositions. Glad your team won...a free dinner is worth it esp when you guys win! You go girl with the diet...stick with it and be that fabulous queen who sticks with her diet!

By the way, football spring training starts in the spring, so in a few months it will be back...sorry to be the bad news breaker!
Have a great weekend!!!

Megan said...

I need to become a mall walker! :0) I am with you on the football thing..and that is why I am glad we have 2 TVs in our house..David watches football ALL THE TIME.

& Yes, we went to the courthouse, we didn't want to just move in together, but didn't have the time then to plan a wedding. But now we're planning a ceremony which is exciting!!

AmberDenae said...

I'm excited about American Idol as well!!

I have to work tomorrow too! Yucky! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and your work goes by very quickly tomorrow!

SassyEngineer said...

I did the Song of Solomon study by Tommy Nelson back my small group with Campus Crusade in college, and I LOVED it. It is probably one the of my favorite studies. We listened to the CD's of him speaking at some church :)

Kaitlyn said...

Oh dear Lord Lindsey, I am SO with you on the football. Love the random musings :)

Y'all are now compulsive mall walkers I'm afraid!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

We are the same type of woman. I need to start meal planning though! Love your new blue on your blog as well!

Kim & Ryan said...

I so want to go there. That's totally driving distance for us. =) Thanks for the tip.

I'm itching for a vacation. We took a weekend for our anniversary, but I'd love to go somewhere for a week, esp. since I'm just rounding out a big event at work and feeling stressed. I will need a vacation! =) You are making me want it more!

Have lots of fun!

Shanny said...

Yay for being "such a wife" and making Garth's appt. =)

And I would love to do the mall walk but.. um.. I would so go broke. I have no self control once I'm at the mall, which is why I avoid them!

brown eyed girl said...

1. Your anniversary trip looks amazing!
2. You ARE a great wife to Garth!
3. You should post your meal menu for the week on your blog!
4. Have a great weekend!

Bluebird said...

Your blog is so cute! Good luck on the New Years diet/lifestyle change...and I'm with you on the football thing. I don't understand why my husband likes to yell at the TV. I don't think it good for him, LOL. Have a great weekend, even though you have to work!

Jennifer said...

I've heard great things about the Song of Solomon study! And you've motivated me to get back involved in church and stop being such a slacker!

That Fresh Feeling said...

Hi there...let me know how you like the Song of Solomon ...love those passages in it....so deep and beautiful.

The Reality of Happily Ever After said...

I want to hear more about the anniversary trip! YAY!!

I'm totally with you on the domestic thing :)

Happy Monday!

Elizabeth said...

Sounds like a great trip that you have planned - I am looking forward to our 1 year anniversary coming up in June! :) I agree with you on being ready for football to end. Hope you have a Happy Monday.

BF was not very happy USC won... but we did go to Lawry's and he had the beef bowl cut prime rib like those football players... : ) boy, lots of meat, he said never again.

Lea Liz said...

life, love, and everything in between. said...

hehe, I don't think I'll ever be the wife who cooks dinner every night too.

Always Pretty in Pink said...

@ your #14: I would so much rather cook every night than put laundry away! :)
