I think our apartment is adorable. I really do. I cried a little when I tried to hang pictures up and the nails wouldn't go into the wall, but all and all I find it really charming and unique, and maybe I'll be able to make something out of it. Also it is a lot bigger than it looks, i just wanted to crop out all of the messy things... but it is small, and perfect for us! And the bedroom deal is hilarious... there's ONE outlet in the living room, cords dragging all around the corners, holes in the walls, old carpet, lack of storage space - all in all we love this place it's our first home and fun adventure. I think my only real complaint has been the weird walls and trying to hang pictures. (i resorted to the sticky kind, even though we're not supposed to) I love it!
dear future children,
Here are a few:
Happy ALL the time
You are free spirited and carefree
Just got married
I think I know who wrote all three of these and I guess I'm always suprised people think I'm happy all the time! I'm worried I'm mean to everyone. Maybe thats what makes me happy? haha.

It was pretty awesome.
I had been engaged for maybe a month and I was working twelve hour shifts and everyone was moody and I think everybody cried at some point, but I thought I was doing pretty well! I was tired, and my feet hurt from wearing my shoes... you know the ones. the only ones i've worn for the last like... 10 months. I even wore them to my wedding?
Then -- my cellphone got stolen/lost...
I CRIED for like four hours. And called Aaron on the phone like 5 times from five different numbers.
I was just thinking how Aaron is perfect for me and deals with me in my most ridiculous and crazy mad woman times.
He nods, shakes his head and holds me tight. Even if I'm crying over something as silly as having nothing to wear to church or needing to clean the bath tub.

I don't see friends I want to see or do things that I want to do and I just hole up in m y house. Other than that I feel like I'm a really social person. But, here is why:
around this time of year I feel like I'm the most annoying/craziest/weirdest/ugliest/fattest friend you've ever had. I worry that people don't really want to hang out with me, but feel like they have to because we've been friends for so long. I drop commitments because I'm afraid that people felt like they just had to invite me to something. I'm afraid that noone really likes me. I'm afraid that everything I say is stupid, and that behind my back people feel bad for me. Not talk bad about me, but pity me in a "what a loser, poor girl, lets befriend her" kind of way. I know it's probably not actually the case, who invites someone they hate to a wedding/bachelorette party/dinner? It's really hard for me to get out of my shell, and sometimes I think even my bffs are sick of me.
I ask people " am I being annoying?" and they reply "No! we think you're funny," and in my head I say "oh my gosh why did you ask that? you're so annoying, of course they had to say that" I don't know why I'm compelled to ask if I'm being annoying. I just get so self-concious when these times of year come around. I can't sleep -- thinking about who I've wronged that day. I ask Aaron like 54390583490 billion times a day if he's mad or if I should leave him alone.
I'm not trying to get pity or even make an excuse for not being around. I don't feel like I'm secluded or anything either? I'm sorry this sounds like I'm trying to get like, pity or something. I guess I just need to blog this out of my head... I'm really sorry I have such good friends (especially mgs) and I haven't even been around. . . and I just worry so much about being in a social setting. This sounds so lame and uncharacteristic of me right? (not that i'm flaky, thats true, but that I don't want to get out? meet people? you know?) I think it's a reason I didnt' go to church for quite awhile too.
I'm just really sorry I'm a flaky friend I promise to try harder!

I think my favorite part of Waitress is when Jenna asks her boss if he's happy. He replies:

I love my husband! I love sleeping next to him at night, I love waking up next to him in the morning! I guess I didn't really understand how deeply you can love. I can barely leave for work in the morning. I want to be with him every second of my day. I love sitting on our couch with our legs in a tangle watching the office. I love cooking for him (even if it's the same 4 or 5 things) I love that he wants to have tons of children!
I couldn't live without him. Honestly!

Today I chopped my thumb off.
Okay it really wasn't that big of a deal, but I woke up a little bit late (10:10....) Straightened my hair and made my breakfast and lunch for the day. As I was chopping the apples (you know, leaning onto the knife) my thumb slipped under the knife! CRUNCH! Ahhh! I was bleeding a lot... and seriously it hurt so bad, the knife went right through the nail! FREAK just thinking about it makes my eyes water. Oh ow. :( any way, I may or may not have said the eff word, and just stuck my thumb under cold running water - but that works for a burn right? Anyway- I was fine and not freaking out too much and not crying until I couldn't find a first aid kit. I know we got like eight of them for our wedding. I couldn't even find a mario bandaid! Then, I couldn't find my cell phone (it was in my pocket, but hey, i was bleeding and in shock) and my neighbors were all at school and I kind of walked aimlessly around for a few minutes until I decided my best bet was to drive to work (45 minutes away) with my thumb over my head. I finally found my cell phone, and called my boss to tell him I might be late.
nd that is when I broke DOWN, girlfriend. Cried like a baby.
It really wasn't that bad, and it could have been much worse, but we definitely need to get going on emergency preparedness. Ahhhhhhhhhh! I mean what if had chopped my thumb clean off right? at the very least, I need to know where my cellphone is at all times and in all places.
And I'll probably buy an apple slicer.
P.S. - (All I really needed was some neosporin and a bandaid probably, but at first it was bleeding like a freaking waterfall... gross right?)
P.S.S - I typed this especially for you, as my thumb throbs with the pain of the ages.

But tomorrow, my friends, I will be hiking the Y.
Nie Nie is hiking the Y on her anniversary of the plane accident. Can you believe it's been one year? I think I heard about her a week after the plane crashed, and read her blog as she slowly recovered, and awoke from her coma.
I know she'll never know how much she has impacted me. I love her like a dear friend and sister, she's inspired me so many times, and helped me become a brave woman. I know that I can get through anything.
Maybe this sounds cheesy, but, I just hope to catch a glimpse or maybe shake the hand of the woman who I hope to be one day. I wish I had the words to describe the way I feel about her and how much I'm sure she's given to others.
And this is her way of saying thank you. To everyone thats prayed for and supported her. I need to tell her "thank you" for all that she's done for me. Maybe I'll get the chance... maybe I won't. I guess we'll see.
(I think I'll cry the whole way.)
