You might be wondering where I have been. I had been doing so well at blogging more frequently and then poof I was gone. Well let me tell you where I was. I was (well am) sick with a sinus infection. It started last Thursday. I didn’t go to work and instead went to the doctor. She started me on an antibiotic and told me if I did not feel great on Monday to come back. Well Friday started out pretty good, I went to work and everything, but in the afternoon I got really worn out and was feeling awful so I went home and laid on my couch and Amanda kept me company.
Saturday I took it easy for most of the day. Adam and I ran a couple errands and then we went to dinner at our pastors house who is also a professor at Milligan. There were more people there than we had expected but it was a nice evening.
Sunday morning I was feeling pretty good, we went to church and to the fellowship meal. And then I started to set up for the shower that Lauren and I were throwing for our friend Sarah. Since I forgot to take pictures you can check out Lauren’s pictures on her blog here. Then in the evening Adam and I went on a date. We went to McDonalds for dinner and then saw The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. I’ve been reading the books and was so excited about the movie and we both enjoyed it.
Once we got home is when I realized how exhausted I was and how sick I felt. Sunday night was miserable. I had a hard time sleeping, was running a fever, achy and all that. I finally fell asleep and when I woke up felt even worse. So I didn’t go to work and instead went back to the doctor. While there they tested me for strep and mono and then said I still only had a sinus infection. They switched my antibiotic and I went home and slept for a lot of the rest of the day.
Yesterday I was feeling a lot better and went to work and got to hang out with some wonderful friends last night. We had so much fun. I hope I keep feeling even better. I hate being sick. I’m also hoping this is the only time this year I get sick. I’m crossing my fingers.
Can you believe July is over already?!
It has gone by super fast. I have really enjoyed blogging every day. Have you enjoyed reading it? I’m pretty sad that it’s over. It definitely helped me enjoy writing again.
Check out what I talked about every day here.
I could eat pizza for every meal of every day. I never get tired of pizza. If you ask me what I want to eat–PIZZA!!
I feel like I should clarify, I could not eat frozen pizza for every meal of every day, maybe just one or two. But if I could have a different kind of pizza every day, that would be awesome.
Here’s a shout out to some of my favorites:
Joe Bolognas (Lexington)–favorite breadsticks and one of my favorite pizzas ever! (Meatball and tomato)
Favorite Delivery Pizza–Dominos–so good!
Favorite Delivery Breadsticks–Little Caesars. Love me some crazy bread!
Favorite Local Pizza–Tie between Main Street and Crazy Tomato
Favorite Deep Dish Pizza: Old Chicago
MMMM Now I’m so hungry for pizza! Aren’t you?!
I love to go shopping. Even when I don’t have money (it is more fun with money though). I like to window shop too. My favorite stores to shop at are Kirklands, Hobby Lobby, Target and JCPenney. I could also spend hours in a bookstore.
I love birthdays and Christmas because I get to take myself on a little shopping free. How fun!
I’m always looking for some new stores to shop at. What are some of your favorites?

I love to play games! I am always looking for people to play games with. I enjoy board games, card games, trivia games, really any kind of game. I like to play new ones or old favorites. The only games that are hard for me to play are the ones with significant time commitments, the ones that take over 4 hours to play. That is pushing my limit.
What is your favorite game to play?
My dream job has changed in the past year or so, and now I can say that my dream job is to be a stay at home mom. To spend time with my kids, and to have time to keep the house clean. That sounds like a dream to me.
But if I can’t do that I just want to do something where I don’t have to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day. That is something I have learned recently.
I am afraid of “uncontrolled heights”.
I know that probably doesn’t make any sense, so let me explain. Regular heights like tall buildings, roller coasters, airplanes don’t bother me, because they are controlled.
An example of an uncontrolled height that freaks me out would be being picked up or being on someone’s shoulders.
I know it sounds strange but it really freaks me out!
I’m wearing sweatpants, a white tee, and my slippers. And snuggled in my hole in the couch.
I have a love hate relationship with cleaning.
I love when my house is clean, but I hate cleaning!
I really hate doing the dishes. I’m trying to become more disciplined with cleaning the dishes after I use them or filling the dishwasher after dinner, but it seems like I just can’t stay up on it.
Does anyone have any cleaning tricks that help them stay on top of everything?
