Happy Sunday! Today I am joining up with the lovely bloggers of The Blogging Tribe on Facebook for a weekly link up. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately…
May 29 (Week 74) :: Updating, Remembering, Needing, Wearing, Being.
Updating…my yoga routine. I have been trying to get into an at-home practice for the last month and recently this week I felt a little drained and bored with the current routine I have been practicing. With the help of my Tuesday yoga instructor, I am going to be updating my at-home practice so I don’t feel bored with it.
Remembering…the memories we made in Judd’s Ford Ranger. We made the decision to replace it this past week after much debate, number crunching and negotiating on a new truck. I always find myself attached to vehicles. When my first car died I cried. Legit. It was a piece of crap but it was my college car that got me through a lot of stuff. Judd’s Ranger was no different. I would always spot Judd driving his blue Ranger down the road to our housing facility in college. We took it on our first road trip to Savannah, GA for our first Valentine’s day. Judd packed a cooler of chocolate covered strawberries to munch on during our drive. We sang a lot of songs in that truck. When we were moving into our first place together, he trusted me to drive it down to my parents house to pick up our first dining room table and drive it back with my dad following me back up to Jaxx. We tailgated for bowl games, SEC rivalry games and occasionally sat in the truck bed just because.
I grabbed my camera last Saturday when we decided to start truck shopping a little more seriously. I snapped some photos of Judd with his truck and he asked me why. I told him that growing up, my parents always had pictures with their cars. From my mom’s first car to my dad’s first Mustang those pictures were snapshots in time capturing the pride they both felt having purchased a new vehicle to make memories in. I told him that this picture of him and his truck would serve one day as a story to tell our kids when they ask dad all about the “Danger Ranger.”
Needing…A weekend away with the hubby. We’ve both been working our behinds off and haven’t really had much R + R time together just the two of us. But not to fret, in a few weeks we will be taking a 3-day weekend down at Disney together park hopping, enjoying each others company and just relaxing together. Every good marriage needs that!
Wearing…my comfortable clothes: a v-neck and some shorts. It’s been getting pretty hot here lately which meant it was time to dust off my comfortable summer outfits.
Being…grateful. This past week has been busy and a bit hectic. I feel extremely grateful for everything I have in this life. From my supportive family to a loving husband-they make life so much easier!
