Free-Write Friday

Sometimes I think coming up with a title is the hardest part of a post. No lie. Is that pathetic? I must type and untype at least 5 times until a come up whatever one I think it best, although I know they are all cheesy. There's a lot of pressure on picking the right title. It needs to be short, but a little informative. It needs to be eye catching and suspenseful making the reader want to continue reading the post. I like it to sometime coordinate with the letter of whatever day it is{Mighty Monday Whatever Wednesday}. It needs to relate to your topic, but you don't always want to give it away....
or maybe I just overanalyze too much.

Today's post is themeless.

Completely random.

Free to write whatever I want.

I know I am free to write what I want everyday, but just roll with me. please.

I like to participate in the themed post, but then I miss out on informing you on the extremely important things like.....

Today is my ONE MONTH anniversary of being a housewife. It has been ah-mazing. I love it so much. I keep feeling like I need to go back to work soon, like my vacation is over's not! It would be a lot more enjoyable if I had a car and money though, but for now, I waste my days away on the computer and watching tv with an occasional basking in the sun by the pool and that is fine with me. It's amazing how fast the days go by though. Somehow they went by soooo slow at work and now before I know it, hours have gone by just by sitting on the couch reading blogs and checking craigslist. I feel ashamed when Mr. B surprises me and comes home early and I am still in my PJs with nothing accomplished. I like when he comes home at 6, and at 5 I shower, get ready, clean and make dinner, giving the appearance of a productive day.

We move in 23 days!!!

We should be getting a new picture of Roxie soon! I am really hoping in the next picture her nose will be filled in a little more. Right now her nose is pinkish with black speckles. I have read that as she gets older it fills in and I hope she is no exception. She is still a cutie and we can't wait to pick her up.

30 Day Shred has been going good. Level 3 is my favorite- who would've thought?! I actually think it's easier, but still pushing me to my limit. I have definitely noticed a difference, my rolls are minimizing (thank you Jesus- that was super uncomfortable) and my arm muscles are getting big. Personally, not a huge fan of the muscular arms, but it's better than jiggly hello-goodbye arms. I would just prefer the toning to be in my abs, but this will do for now.

I tweeted Ashton Kutcher today.

I am stuck at home all day. Why not? I asked him if a new season of "True Beauty" is coming soon. I will admit I felt a little junior highish, but makes me that much cooler if he tweets me back right? Wrong? I won't admit that I keep checking my twitter every 10 minutes.

Does any one watch Jessica Simpson's Price of Beauty?? I am really lovin' this show. First off, I think she is really funny and her and I could totally be friends. Not sure if I should admit that either or what that says about me, but it's true- I have plenty of blonde moments that would allow us to have that special connect. I also love the whole premise of this show. It is so interesting to see how every country as their own view of beauty and at what lengths they will go to achieve this beauty.

This scene from the episode in Thailand was so funny. You know those moments when it's silent and not the right moment to laugh, and you do nothing but laugh. The kind of laugh where you try to keep it in and shoot little boogs everywhere. My friend, Liz, and I were notorious for this and I'm pretty sure everyone hated us for's so contagious and once you start you can not stop. Anyways, if you don't watch this show- check it out!
The girl on 16 & Pregnant this week had twins. Jealous. I want to have twins so bad. My odds are very slim, but I am still hoping. One baby was kicking her bladder, they were out in public looking at new cars and she totally peed her pants. It was hilarious.

Does anyone watch Life Unexpected?? I just started getting into that show (thanks to Mama Grace) and I'm really liking it.

Pioneer Woman is on the The View today. I'm expecting to follow in her footsteps. Ha. I think I am a little off track.

Mr. B and I are going to Naples for the weekend to visit my grandparents.

Mr. B proposed to me there almost two years ago (April 19), we are eating at that restaurant tonight. We have come so far since then-ahh life is gooooooood.

I'll leave you with an example of Successful Marriage 101- The importance of when to play your cards and how to play them right:

{Last night we had already eaten dinner and we were out doing some errands. Mr. B was hungry again and wanted to buy a sub. Sidenote: we are on a tight budget until May}

Me: That sub is too much money, you should get something else instead.

Mr. B: Ugh, but this sub looks so good.

{leaving the line on the search for something cheaper}

Me: Ok fine, you can get the sub if you let me buy a sundress tomorrow.

Mr. B: Ok, deal.

Me {walk away with a big smile}

Compromise. Perfection. Extra tight budget.

Sarah Ann said...

Yay for freewriting and being a housewife! I also have a hard time picking a title!!

Mrs. C said...

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who hangs out most of the day in her pjs showering an hour before my husband gets home! I too, spend an insane quantity of my time on the computer watching 16 & Pregnant and other tv shows - can't wait to check out Life Unexpected! Happy Friday!

Jordan said...

Your life of the housewife (aka unemployed) sounds a lot like mine. I feel so guilty when I look up and it's 2 pm and I'm still in my PJs... and then I go ahead and complain about being tired when he gets home... lovely wife I am lol. Happy Friday!

jenn said...

I know EXACTLY what you mean about the titles. I always feel the same way and mine are always boring.
And you reminded me that I need to watch this week's ep of 16 & preg! I want twins too :)

Kristin said...

I love random posts - makes me feel good to know that somebody else is as scatterbrained as I am :-) lol Totally relate about titles! As you can tell from my blog, I've just gone boring! Hmmm, Naples, Florida?? If so, come comment on my blog real quick (although you might not be on the comp. if you're out of town) - and I'll tell you about something neat going on in Naples that is a must-attend!

Lori said...

I love how you played your cards!! HA!!
I am so glad you are enjoying your time at home! That is so exciting!

Kristin said...

Don't know if you'd like this, but I'm addicted! Check out the Dueling Fiddlers website: and watch their videos. I've met and had dinner with these guys and they were just recently in concert here in my town. I've been jealous following their Facebook and hearing about all the fun they're having in Naples! On Facebook there was even a way you could get free tickets to their shows if you're interested. Let me know if so, and I'll find the post and link it to you...

Liz said...

I made it into your yeah. Laughing uncontrollably when it's not even that funny and NO ONE else thinks its funny is the best....but kinda embarrassing b/c you can't stop! I have tons of those memories with you! I can even think of one instance last summer in church.....

Patriotic Princess said...

Jealous of your housewife-ness! And you, me, and Jessica Simpson could all be bff...I so love her!

OH, and I think twins would be just amazing but my fiance thinks otherwise. I just love babies :)

Have a great week! xoxo!
