day eight.

short term goals for this month and why.

one. finish reading harry potter seven. reason: because i have started it three times and have yet to finish it.
two. get masons birthday planned and all his gifts purchased, wrapped and ready to go before his birthday. reason: because i would hate to put of something that epic as his birthday plans. and i was it to be awesome, thus; requiring a little more time than one or two days of planning.
three. get all of my christmas shopping done. and if not all of it, at least all of masons shopping done. reason: cause then i won't have to worry about getting him anything else and we can spend all of december watching christmas movies and not worrying about what gifts to buy.
four. not fall asleep at work. reason: because i really shouldn't do that in the first place.
five. don't go crazy with all the holiday treats. reason: i don't want to turn into a treat-o-holic. or a fatty.

i think that is a pretty good list. i mean, most of my goals are long term, so it was kind of hard to come up with the list for this month, and these are things that i am sure i can accomplish. i believe!

til day nine.

day seven.

and then came the seventh day:
a picture of someone/something that has had the biggest impact on you.

meet m.
my best friend.
my one and only.
my husband forever.

i first met m. in ninth grade. we had math together and although i have no memory of math really, i remember choosing this guy, my future husband, as the guy with the best smile in all of the ninth grade. and still think it's true. he has a smile that makes me melt and a laugh that is hilarious and contagious at the same time.
we have been through a lot together and since that day he first kissed me, january 24, 2004, we have been best friends ever since. he has seen me at my best, and seen me at my worst and never has he ever made me feel less than what i am. he has brought me up from feeling like nothing and has made me so happy that i feel like i could soar with the birds. of course, our lives haven't always easy and although neither of us are perfect, he is the one that i feel is as close as they come. he is perfect for me. in every way. he is the cheese to my macaroni.
i love him more than ever.

to m.
i'll be your branches.
if you'll be my roots.
and together we are a tree.
reaching ever upward.


day six.

the sixth day is entitled:
your favorite superhero and why.

well, to be honest i was never one for the cartoon superhero. i mean, i grew up in delta and the only tv i really remember watching was full house and the rest of the tgif lineup.
but if i were to be honest and tell you who my real hero is, i would have to say my dear mother.
she is a true saint of a woman. she is the most loving and kind person i have ever met. and even though she is kind of crazy at times, she makes me laugh, at her and with her. she has a heart of gold and loves everyone she meets almost instantly. she is strong, in both body and spirit. she would be willing to do anything for anyone at the drop of a hat. and she is a woman that i truly admire. she has been through a lot in her life and from a young age, she has cared for both family, friends, and strangers without a single complain. she may be small, but she has the biggest heart of anyone i know.
i love my mom and she is the image of who i want to be when i grow up.

to my dear mother.
you are my hero.


day five.

day five:
a picture of somewhere you've been to.

the epic land of china.

although china was amazing. and there are about a million photos i could post.
my most favorite place i've ever been:

i hope you can go there too.


day four.

i told you it would be sooner than later, didn't i.

day four:
a habit you wish you didn't have.

well there are a few habits i wish i didn't have but i will share one with you.

i wish i didn't doubt myself.
i mean there are a lot of things that i know i am perfectly capable of doing, but when it comes down to actually doing it, i doubt myself. i doubt my abilities because i am okay with just doing what i am doing. i am not very good at pushing myself into doing new things even though there are so many things that i want to do. i just lose that little bit of faith that i have in myself that will push me over the edge and make myself do it. there are a lot of things that i have on my to-do list but i just kind of doubt that i will finish the specific project or keep on reading the specific book, or succeed in what i am doing that i just don't do it. i know this is a super lame habit, but it is one that i have that i'm not very proud of and putting it on here is, i hate to admit it, kind of embarrassing and just might be what i need to push me over the edge and actually have faith in myself that i can do whatever it is that i am trying and/or wanting to do.
so thank you 30 day blog challenge for letting me put this habit out there.
and look out world, i'm coming.


day three.

yes, i know it has been some time since i posted day two, but like i said, i have no interweb at my current abode, so here we go.

day four will be sooner than later.
