Just some words

I find it interesting how every blog user uses their blog for it's own purpose. Some to showcase their kids, others their talents, some come to vent and others use it as a outlet to talk about God, life and the in between.
I sometimes wish that I used my blog for another outlet then the one I currently use it for, which in my opinion is to give life updates and showcase my talents. I don't exactly have a problem with those uses, especially because everyone loves a little pat on the back for the things we are doing, me included. However, I have often thought of long thought-provoking topics I've wanted to blog about, and yet I never do. For a couple of reasons:
1. It takes time. Time I don't necessarily want to dedicate to slaving over the computer, organizing my thoughts "just so", so that they make sense to the rest of the world. 2. Because I'm really not a great writer. I have improved for sure, but my mother tells me she still cringes when she has to read my writing, because in her words "I write like I talk" and it's not organized or proper. And it's true, I type so fast, typing ever word I'm thinking and when I go back and reread I ALWAYS leave out words. I will proofread something 2 times and still miss articles, because my mind reads them to be there when they are not. This of course leads back to point number 1, which is that I don't want to dedicate the time to having efficient, thought-provoking posts.

But then, I will find myself reading someone else's blog. Someone with toddlers and kids and busyness and they will have great, long posts about topics I enjoy reading about. So, I think to myself if they can find the time. Why can't I? Which leads me to admit something I have always known is true about myself. I AM A TIME WASTER. I am also NOT a morning person, which is when I know a lot of people are most productive. So, while I do have a job that I go to and errands I run in between and yoga or some activity that I jump to from that. I also just WASTE a lot of time. I know I'm not the only one, but I've been feeling kind of bad about it lately, because Jake and I have been talking (A LITTLE BIT) about having kids sometime in the future. And I can't help but think about how I will fit a little person in my life, when my life is so "me" consumed, and when I LOVE MY SLEEP. I know they have day care at the gym and family friendly small groups and somewhere people get together as friends and bring their kids along too. But what about everything else. The sewing and reading and cooking and baking and magazine/blog/gossip stalking reading I do.
So, today I have done exactly that thing I wanted to do, which was talk about something meaningful??? Not exactly, today I just wanted to ramble apparently. But really, I would like to talk about some different things that I care about on my blog, and yet with my 2 above points of why I don't and the realization that I'm a time wasting person, who will one day have a hard time managing her children, let alone her life.

I will instead most likely continue to do what I've been doing, which is procrastinate about posting photos of things I'm doing in my life and barely type words to go along, but MAYBE, just maybe... One day you might see a meaningful blog in there sometime too.

P.S. No one has to tell me that everything will work itself out in motherhood, I know that, I wasn't saying "woah is me, to get encouragement". This time waster has just been making some life observations, that's all.

Peace, Love and Cupcakes

So, for our two year anniversary Jake and I of course went out! First to P.F. Chang's for dinner and then to a cute little cupcake shop in SD for dessert. If you remember last year when we celebrated, we went on a cupcake tour in L.A., so we've jokingly said that will be our annual thing to try to do. Eat cupcakes from a bakery. I'm always down for cupcakes, so it sounds good to me! (It WAS mostly my idea, so let's hope I'd like it).

Two Happy Years!

At the delicious P.F. Chang's

I just love cupcake boxes.I don't know what it is about them, maybe it's because I know cupcakes go inside.

4 is not too many right? Don't answer that. Some were for the next day. :)

At this shop they also had AMAZING brown t-shirts that said Peace, Love and Cupcakes. I of course wanted to buy it, but they didn't have my size, so I will of course be going back for that. It had 3/4 length sleeves, how could I not?

Yes, I stood on the bathroom counter to get a full length photo of my pants... don't laugh, it was the only way.

So, here are the pants I made in my sewing class. I really am not one for fashion sewing, it's much more complicated than making "things", because they have to fit properly, but these aren't so bad.
Now, the seams inside aren't too pretty, but who can tell? Not you... :)

Handle with Love

I'm not exactly timely in telling you, but yesterday Jake and I celebrated the day we got married in Antigua, Antigua 2 years ago.

To bliss and happiness and handling love with care and trust.
And to many more years!

We bought a house

So, we got to Jersey and much to our dismay. All the homes we had picked out online had sold (like the day before we arrived). So, we went back to the drawing board, because we were on a mission to find a home (in 7 days no less). That mission lead us to these 2 houses, and we made bids on both, but again to our dismay. The homes must not have liked us back, because they were both no's. Really God just had a better plan of a bigger house for less money. Who can complain with that? We sure can't...

Bye, bye home 1 and home 2.

So, here it is drumroll please... Our first home (soon to be)
276 Deerfield Drive

(not my best photography)
And here is the inside, as you will see it's big enough for all our friends to move in too. So, we are expecting people to visit. :)

Here's the living/dining

A bonus room (maybe they call it a family room)

Part of the kitchen

The master (with 2 closets and double sinks) :)

And a rec/media room upstairs, so big it requires 2 photos, with a guest room inside.

And of course there is a 1000 sq ft unfinished basement. Did I mention that's bigger than my apartment now? Pathetic, I wonder how we squeeze in all our furniture. I'm sure we will just be full to the brim. :) NOT
