Hello everyone... TGIF!! WOW, what a stressful day I had yesterday!! When I walked out of work I decided to go to Hobby Lobby with my friend Tiffaney (which is always fun). She drove, and when to brought me back to my car, I got in it and went to start it... and.... it didn't start! This was at 7:00pm and after trying to jump start it myself (which didn't work) I called my road side assistance to come out. The lady I talked to on the phone said she was going to send out a tow truck, but put a note in and said that I just may need a jump (I told her that I had did that and it didn't work, so why she was going to have it done again, I will never know). Well after waiting for about 1 1/2 hours someone finally came... and guess what?? He didn't come in a tow truck. He was told that I just needed a jump. OK, I understand that sometimes messages get mixed up. He tried to jump it and of course it didn't work. He then told me that his company didn't have tow trucks (so why does your truck say 'Aaron's auto and towing?). I had to call road side again and let them know what happened. They put in another work order for me called another company to come out, which took 2 hours this time (for those of you that aren't doing the math, it was about 10:30pm). After he got the car hooked up Tiffaney had to leave (Oh... I'm so grateful for her and glad she was there). And to be honest the thought of ridding in a tow truck with someone I didn't know was a little creepy (you know, that whole stranger danger concept). Well I got home around 12:15am... what a long day!! Now, I'm being told that my engine may have seized (so, maybe this is my fault, my check engine light came on about a week ago and I really didn't do anything... I was planning on taking it in sometime next week. Really there just aren't enough hours in a day to get everything done).
With all of that, I missed day 18 of Katie's 30 day blog challenge, so I'm combining 18 and 19 now....
Day 18: Something You Regret
I don't really have any regrets in life... I try to learn from the decisions I have made and find something positive out of everything. It's a bit cheesy, I know... but it true.
Growing up my mom taught us that we had choice in everything, and always gave us the opportunity to make choices. She would say to choose wisely because we would have to live with it and it would follow us in life. She would also say to own your decisions and always be happy with them and learn from them... and no matter what she would always be there (and she had kept up her end of the deal... so I'll keep up mine).
I have no regrets... just life lessons.
With that being said, the fact that my car isn't working (probably could have been prevented), I do regret not getting it looked at when the check engine light came on.
Day 19: Something You Miss
There are so many things I miss... but right now, what I miss the most is my family, friends and life in Denver.
I miss this scene...
How beautiful, the skyline with the Rocky Mountains in the background. The park this picture was taken in is right across the street from the apartment that I lived it. I would go to the roof and sip my coffee and enjoy sunsets
I hope day I'll be able to convince The Man to move.
I would love to raise Booges in the same city I grew up in, around tons of family.
Happy Wednesday Everyone!! We are half way through the week, YAY!
I excited to join Lindsey for WIWW... I have gone to The Pleated Poppy for months... every Wednesday... to see what everyone wore for the week. But last week Lindsey said here to 'man up', so I did... and took pictures of myself all week... well I missed a day or 2 or 3...
So here is goes...
hooded long sleeve shirt - Target
cargo type pants (why to big for me) - hand me down
Happy Sunday... Today I will be getting ready for a fun week at work. I work in a medical supply office, as a customer care rep. This week is Customer Service Week, and our bosses plan all sorts of fun activities for us... Starting off with pajama day Monday... how wonderful, starting off the week by going to work in Jammies! Also, when The Man gets home from work, we are going to pick pumpkins out (didn't make it to a pumpkin patch like I wished for). Whole Foods has these beautiful white pumpkins, that I'm loving... so we will get a good combo of white and orange pumpkins. I can't wait, I LOVE PUMPKINS!
What are you Fun plans today?
Day 14: A picture you love
Oh!!! There are so many picture that I love... I will try to limit them to just a few...
Happy Saturday Everyone!! We made it through another week.. YAY! I don't know about you, but this week was LONG. I don't know if it was the fact that it's starting to get dark sooner.. or that Boogies has started teething and seems to be up every hour (and just wanted Mama)
I seen a fantastic blog topic here, and I do hope that she can get a linky started... But in the meantime, I thought I would share what I'm lovin' this week with all of you...
Carrie Underwood's new song "Mama's Song"
watching my 4 1/2 month old baby boy play with his toes and put his feet in his mouth
my new Say Yes to Carrots shampoo and conditioner (it smells yummy)
This sweet little canister that came in the mail Thursday
from my mom
(She finds the cutest things... and it going to go perfect on my counter filled with coffee)
I stopped at whole foods last night on my way home and found these little bits of love.
The coffee is amazingly good and the pumpkin butter isn't going to last (in my house) either... YUMMY!!
I have been asked this question several times and my answer is always the same...
I'm afraid of failure! I know that no one and nothing is perfect... however the thought of failing scares me. Why? I'm not sure where this fear has come from. I haven't always felt this way, heck I picked up and left my family and friends in Colorado to start a life here in Chicago (I wasn't afraid then). I didn't know a soul when I moved here, and I moved here alone.
I recite this daily...
Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure...
