Sorry i’ve been quiet this week. Whenever I’m feeling stressed/anxious/depressed etc, I end up closing off from the world. It’s stupid and doesn’t solve anything, but it just happens. Don’t worry though, i’m working on it. And don’t worry about my stresses, it’s wedding stuff, it’s where do we want to live/raise kids, what do we want out of our careers in X years. I mean, those kinds of big decisions and future thinkings can really dig an emotionally draining hole.
I wish life came with a training plan like my races. Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced person living life? Here’s your 16 week plan!
Also, side note, whenever I’m having a rough day I just google bunnies or puppies and I can’t help but smile. I want a bunny for Christmas. Not. Even. Joking.
It looked like this today…
So, we decided to stay inside and warm. I had all the intentions in the world to Christmas shop and just get out of the house but I did get to Target on Saturday and bought a strand of lights (and $90 of other random items cause that’s how Target goes). This is about as festive as our apartment gets. Sad I know, but as of right now we don’t have the room for a full tree or a storage area when it has to come down. One day we’ll go all out Christmas-style. Till then we’ll just stress out about where that new place may be haha.
Ending our weekend we just lounged around watched snowy football games, finished Lego Batman 2, made a white chili. I know i don’t talk about recipes and food like other blogs but it’s mostly because i don’t cook. Other than breakfast, Cameron takes care of rest. Yeah I know, i’m a lucky girl. He’s amazing with flavors and spices and almost every meal he makes is healthy and delicious. He takes care of me for sure. Take a look at the beautiful meal we ate tonight. Fajita style chicken, red peppers, & mushrooms on a bed of spinach mmmmm…
