Life Lately

1 My husband and I went to a wedding this weekend, which was so wonderful! I love seeing people I’ve known for ages get married; it’s always so happy to be able to watch that and enjoy the love you can see coming out of both parties! I think Mr. Owl and I might be party poopers, though, because we rarely join in when there’s dancing at weddings. Am I the only one who really dislikes the modern wedding dancing with hip hop music and basically just getting out there to bounce around and bob your head and body to the beat? What happened to big band jazz and dances you could actually do as a couple?

My brother-in-law and his wife, when they got married, had the likes of Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble and others and did a lot of swing-style dances, and it was so much more fun. To me, anyway. But I’m a total white girl and I cannot do modern dance at all. So that could be why.

4 I think this dress has basically become my go-to wedding attire. Partially because it’s just… you know, amazing… but also because he seems to request I wear it pretty much any time I ask him what I should wear. So I think he likes it. Just a little. I mean, he did buy it for me.

So I’ve been not-so-subtly hinting that he should maybe splurge and get me another Modcloth dress for my birthday… namely, this one. I need it so, so badly! The color is perfect and it’s polkadots and there are pockets… yeah. I want it.

2 Speaking of my birthday, I’m going to be 26! That seems crazy to me; I don’t feel like I’m about to be on the closer side to thirty. Not that thirty is old, but I still remember being thirteen and looking up to my youth group leaders as really adult people, and seriously… most of them were the age I am now. It’s a weird thought to realize that I am now that person that younger people might be looking at and thinking how “adult” I am. Haha! Even though I have a baby and I’m married and I have a grown up job… I don’t feel like I’m anywhere over say… 22. Seriously.

7 This month is gearing up to be pretty busy in the next two weeks, so posting might be scarce! As I mentioned before, we are taking up my parents’ offer to live in their basement for a while so we can save up and possibly buy a house instead of renting forever.

I love my parents, so I’m really excited about it! It will be nice to have my mom around to watch Asa when I’m working — even though he’s a very easy  baby, it will be nice to feel off the hook when it comes to checking on him while I do household chores or finish up shifts of work — plus we’ll be doing the Whole30 together, and it’ll make running errands and grocery shopping much easier… because… more cars! We currently only have my husband’s truck, so I have no way to go do things on my own right now.

Plus, my parents live super close to the beach and a really nice little park, so I can go for walks with Asa in a safer area than where we live now– our house is located on a really busy street, so there’s no way I can go for walks with him right now, sadly!

We will probably live with them for at least six months if not longer, and I’m really looking forward to it. I feel so blessed to have a family that is willing to put a few things on hold to help us save up some money, and also to have family that I get along with! Seriously, I get along with my side and my husband’s side; they’re all amazing!

Anyway! I had better get my work done before my husband gets home! I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday!
