It’s been over a month since I last updated! Sorry….but that just means this will be a great post filled with lots of updates! I did do a brief one in my yearly recap
post but let’s talk about the most recent happenings.
The good stuff
>> Dakota did have another seizure but has been seizure free ever since that last time due to new medication and getting good sleep at night
>> Dakota’s back/leg have also been feeling a lot better since starting physical therapy so hopefully if we just continue to do that he will be better in no time
>> We are going on a cruise February/March thanks to Dakota’s new job! At their Christmas party they announced they were taking all of their employees and their spouse (or plus one) on a cruise! We are so excited and grateful
>> We had a great time with family and friends during Christmas. We had lots of good food, presents, memories, and traditions!
>> We saw Star Wars and it was pretty good! Some things I liked and some things I disliked but overall great movie. I’m more excited to see Sisters though….
>> Work has been good for the both of us. Nothing crazy just steady work and good people
>> Lots of friends announced they were either pregnant or engaged, congrats!
>> I saw my long time friend Nick and it was great catching up with him
>> I started a YouTube channel! Check it out and subscribe 🙂
>> My friend Shay had her baby! Roman was 9lbs 3oz and he has a full head of hair and I just love him.
The bad stuff
>> We were planning on going to Jamaica next December but it looks like we might not be anymore. We have so many other trips planned and we want to buy a house so it may be out of the budget 🙁
>> My hair has been ridiculously static-y lately and it is so bad that I seriously contemplated cutting all of my hair off. I have tried everything to get rid of it; washed all my clothes, put oil in my hair, rubbed everything down with dryer sheets, you name it I’ve tried it. Please send help.
>> I also just discovered that naming my photos hasn’t been working. You know how you can add “properties” to your photos so that when something is pinned it already has a caption and all that stuff? Yeah mine apparently haven’t been saving and won’t stick at all. So you know my life’s over.
In my spare time
>> For my birthday and Christmas I got some new books and I am so excited to read them! Hopefully it won’t take me forever to finish them so I can write a review for you guys and we can discuss them (I’m talking to you Shannon!). My goal is to read at least one by the end of January. I know that seems really lame but for me that’s a big deal haha.
>> I have been thinking a lot about going to the gym lately…..but I really don’t want to……mostly because I have no idea what I’m doing and am so out of shape. So tips on going to the gym by yourself would be appreciated
