I’m __blank___ Because…

repost from november…

My sweet friend Ashley asked us to join her in a filling in the “blanks” post…
you can see hers { here }

I’m weird because…
I like eating cold left-overs
I drink my “coffee” white
I watch Disney movies even when my kids are not home
I like to dance at home when no is around
I raise my hand when driving and listening to a good Christian song
I lock myself in the bathroom to read a Karen Kingsbury book uninterrupted.
I would rather be “too” busy than sit home and do nothing
I talk about pins in my normal conversations
I love the smell of gasoline!
I obsess over checking the mail and squeal when I get a package
I don’t like ice in my pop, I would rather drink it warm than watered down
I start laughing before I get to the punch line of a joke
I think bottled water is gross
I rarely take a normal picture

I never wash my face before bed
I rarely brush my teeth before bed,
But brush my teeth as soon as I get up in the morning (even before I eat)

I’m a bad friend because…
I don’t answer my phone when it rings; I wait to listen to the voicemail
I usually forget to return calls
I would rather text than call
I don’t always say when something upsets me until it builds and I explode
I sometimes get sucked into listening to people gossip
I over commit and things get forgotten
I’m a good friend because…
If you call me after 10pm, I will answer my phone (usually that means it’s important)
I will always pray for you
I will not judge you for your past or current mistakes
I will help you stay accountable
I will love your kids as if they are my own
I will say things that make you laugh really hard
I will bake you something really yummy whenever you ask
I will craft you anything my two hands can create
I’m sad because…
There are millions of unsaved people in this world
I am worried some of my family may not be joining me in heaven
I read into what people say and take things too personal
I have too many ideas pinned and not enough funds to create them
Our Christmas plans always get too complicated and stressful
I have family in CA that I have not seen in 8 years and I can not afford to visit them

my siblings in CA Alex, Adan, and Cristina

I’m happy because…

My kids all love Jesus
I am forgiven by my heavenly father and will spend eternity with him.
My husband agreed to let me get purple highlights in my hair
My nails are finally growing.
I have restored some friendships that mean the world to me.
I have amazing blog readers that leave the sweetest emails and comments daily.
I have a mustard yellow front door!
I’m excited for…
Listening to Christmas music for the next 2 months
Having our first “Birthday Party” for Jesus on Christmas morning.
Seeing my kids faces on Christmas morning when they open their presents.
Spending lots of time with family for the holidays.
Starting new thanksgiving traditions, ie: thanksgiving book
My free dress from eshakti!
2012 to begin!
My 30 day shred workouts to be over…pure torture I tell you
