Super Sweet Sunday Fill in the Blank...

1.  Today I am wearing     my super cute new maternity top with the ruffles, the only jeans I have that still fit, the cardigan I wore at my wedding reception, and gold flats .

2.  My favorite childhood food was     fried pork chops, corn, and mashed potatoes   and my favorite food  now is   fried pork chops, corn, and mashed potatoes.

3.  A day that I am too busy to      read    is a day that I am too busy.

4.  The last movie I saw was      "The September Issue"     and the next movie I want to see is     "The Last Airbender" Hopefully they don't ruin it.

5.  My favorite smell is      kids plastic pool toys (weird)   because,      it makes me think of summer and how it was a million times better at eight years old when summers represented pure freedom .

6.  A weird little quirk I have is      my bookshelves are organized not by author or genre but by color, I can remember the cover of every book I own (which is several hundred). I can recall the color of the cover much easier than an obscure title or a name that escapes me.

7.  When I take personality quizzes they always say I'm     I'm definitely an introvert, thank God Mr. Awesome is an extrovert on crack.

Holy Smokes!!

It has been quite the few weeks, the events include but are not limited to: 
*Finding out we are having a girl!! (let's remember how absolutely convinced we were that it was a boy).
*Getting excited because the girls clothes section is about ten times bigger than the boys
*Our dear Mayapolis Papaya needing an emergency trip to the Vet, and it's no surprise,   because she eats absolutely everything (I'm convinced that if she actually does get ahold of her tail for long enough she'd eat that too)
*Writing like mad on my first YA novel, titled Swept
*Mr. Awesome being super sick 
*In the midst of Mr. Awesome being super sick making him get out of the house for a little bit to get some fresh air, which may not sound like it should be on the list, until...
*While out "getting fresh air" our house is broken into
*Thanking God for fresh air, amazing neighbors,  and the fact that everything important to me was with me while someone broke down our door and stalked around our house
*After less than two months in our new place, beginning to pack and move again at the end of this month
*Realizing that while moving may suck the place we're moving to, in the long run, is pretty friggin' sweet

Super Sweet Sunday Fill-in-the-blank

1. One thing I MUST do before I die is get my book published.

2. I would rather eat at whole foods everyday than source recipes on the internet any day.

3. If I could give my younger self one piece of advice it would be learn a few languages instead of stressing about things you have no control over .

4. If I won the lottery tomorrow I'd buy a beach house on a tropical island that is an escape for all my friends and family.

5. The best surprise ever was when Mr. Awesome proposed.

6. My biggest fault is follow through, i commit to more than I'm capable of doing because I don't want to disappoint .

7. My biggest strength is loyalty .

Dear Mr. Awesome,

How can I say thank you for such an awesome first year of marriage!! How about...thank you for putting up with me and my many little quirks. Thank you for being a budgetter, a planner and a thinker. Thank you for being the perfect height so you can put your arm around me and we can walk without that awkward three-legged race issue. Thank you for saying "I love you," "you're amazing," and "you are beautiful" so often that I catch myself believing it. Thank you for being my best friend and my favorite person to be around. Thank you for being there to let me cry on your shoulder and actually letting me know that it is a requirement. Thank you for being honest and good and not afraid to make a fool of yourself. Thank you for just being awesome and proposing to me and marrying me and making this year one of the best years ever. Here's to our future.

I love you Mr.
