Over the last two weeks, I’ve eaten anywhere from 1-4 mini 3 Musketeer bars a day. They’re slowly taking the place of my Hershey’s obsession.
I don’t like the high-low dresses. They remind me of mullets.
I’m terrified of going to the doctor. I’d rather live with a sickness for a month than visit the doctor and have them shove uncomfortable things in my ears, up my nose, and down my throat.
I get really, really, unnaturally excited when going to IHOP. And I order a side of extra chocolate chips for my pancakes because life is short.
I don’t deal well with conflict. If something upsets me, my usual way of dealing with it is telling Andrew and having a piece of chocolate. Or pizza.
If someone is sitting at a green light, unaware of its recent change from red, I can’t even bring myself to honk because I feel rude. I need my car to have a button that signals a voice to say, “Good sir, the light has turned green.”
I have a humiliating amount of notecards, stationery, journals, and writing utensils.
Ewan McGregor’s voice gives me goosebumps. Even the same songs I’ve heard a million times.
If pizza and pancakes had no calories, I would have no problems.
I’ve already named my future children. And planned their newborn shoots.
I talk in my sleep. Or rather, speak in tongues in my sleep, as my noises don’t usually form words.
I get nervous in the drive-thru and rehearse my order ahead of time. If Andrew doesn’t know what he wants, I won’t go through until he’s decided. Sometimes he stalls on purpose to make me flustered, because apparently giving your spouse an ulcer is fun.
I get really embarrassed when Jack barks at people.
Target, Forever 21, Old Navy…all just stores to most people. Unavoidable addictions to me.
I crave Colorado from time to time just as much as I crave a Reese’s sundae from Braum’s. Well…maybe just a little less than a sundae some days… ;)
I’m not good at trying new foods. Or liking foods that normal people like.
My favorite movies aren’t chick flicks. They’re films like Jurassic Park, Jaws, and Skyfall.
Happy Tuesday, darlings. More exciting blogs to come soon, I promise. :)
Happy Father’s Day to the two best Dads I know! I am so blessed to have both of you in my life.
To my Superhero: Lord knows I could not have hoped to make it in this world without your wisdom, guidance, and hysterical dry humor and wit. I am so proud to be your little girl. Thank you for working so hard, for sacrificing so much to give me so much, and for teaching me the important things in life…Jesus, basketball, and good food. You are the greatest Dad and the funniest friend, and I’m so thankful for all you do for me. I’m proud to be exactly like you, because we are hilarious geniuses. ;) Thank you for bestowing on me your sense of adventure, love of food, and the famous smirk. Love you so, so much Daddy!
And to my hilarious Dad-in-law: I could not have asked for a better father-in-law, or for a better person to raise my husband! I am so thankful to be a part of your family and share in your humor of love of food. ;) Thank you for taking such good care of us and for being such a good example for Andrew. Thank you for randomly mowing our lawn and buying us dinner and chasing and bonding with our psychotic dog. ;) We are so thankful for all you do and for the time we get to spend with you. Love you so much!
Happy Father’s Day to all you Dads out there! Oh, and to this one too. ;)
You are the best Dad to Jackers, and I know you’ll be the best Dad to our future babies. Let’s not talk anymore about that though because I’ll faint from fear. ;)
Today, I’m feeling extra thankful for two of my favorite people and my favorite fur ball.
I’m married to this ridiculously handsome man. He makes me laugh every day, and I am pretty sure I’m the luckiest. He works super hard, prays with me, and buys me cookie cake. And he took me to see Man of Steel last night, IHOP for breakfast this morning, and took me to the zoo today. WINNER. (P.S. Man of Steel was amazing…still sitting here in awe of Russell Crowe’s acting and Henry Cavill’s jawline.)
And this girl. Allow me to brag for a moment. She is the most fabulous best friend on the planet and is such an encouragement to me. I am so thankful for how God brought us into each other’s lives at the perfect time. We have such a great camaraderie based on Jesus, laughter, pictures, and good food. She is a lovely friend for life, and I look forward to the days when we’re pushing babies in strollers around the zoo and being judged by everyone who sees how many photos we’re taking. ;)
And Lord knows I can’t even imagine what life would be like without this fur ball. He has become the most snuggly little nugget, and I adore him and his 85-pound cuddles. :)
Happy Saturday loves!
A few things I’ve learned in my 23 years…
1. You can get a personal alfredo pizza from Cici’s for less than $3, and if your body’s metabolism is anywhere close to mine (not super fast), you can have it for dinner and still lose weight. I’ve tested this theory three times (go ahead…judge me). I lost a pound each time when I had a good, fairly healthy breakfast and lunch, followed by a good, delicious personal pizza dinner. It’s a divine way to lose weight and save money. ;)
2. Movies are cheaper on Amazon 99% of the time. Buy them used if the seller has good reviews. Our movie collection is embarrassingly huge. Almost everything is cheaper on Amazon, in fact.
3. If you run at Hafer Park, you will see approximately 4.5 dogs per run, and that will make running easier, because you’ll be all, “OH hi cute dog!” If you run in my neck of the woods, you can expect to see squished frogs that have been flattened by tires and one really mean bulldog who barks his head off for apparently no reason.
4. Etsy is a land of good and evil. You can find cute, cheap, homemade and vintage things. You will also find the inner turmoil of your online shopping soul that won’t let you stop buying things. Perhaps even more dangerous than Etsy is Groopdealz. I apologize if you all go empty your bank accounts now.
5. Bad days will always be made better if you take a trip to the mall and get yourself a slice of cookie cake. If your husband brings it home to you – even better.
6. If you’re looking for a spontaneous vacation, go to google.com/flights and pick a few dates. You can search for the cheapest fares and plan a last minute vaca pretty quickly. (Another warning: addiction is probable.)
7. There is nothing cuter than a German shepherd face.
Happy Wednesday, loves. :)
There just is nothing better than vacation.
The only downside to vacation is missing this little nugget, who was not pleased to see my suitcase out last Friday.
We left Friday after Andrew got off work and drove all the way to San Antonio for a late anniversary celebration getaway.
Roadtrips. WE LOVE THEM.
Saturday morning breakfast…complete with waffles shaped like Texas.
And toast and breakfast potatoes!
If ever there was a place that seemed like it was designed for Caitlin, it would have to be Sea World. Half theme park, half zoo. Whole happy. ;)
We loved the shark exhibit…maybe we’ve been watching Jaws too much, but we find them fascinating!
My life goals have changed. Now all I want to do in life is ride a beluga whale.
And train dolphins.
Speaking of dolphins…
They are my absolute favorites…happiest little things!
Can you see the Caitlin joy? I am in my happy place! Minus the fish. Fish are nasty.
We ended the day with the Shamu show. Every time I go to Sea World, my childhood dreams of being a Sea World trainer are reborn…think I can get Andrew to move to San Antonio or Orlando? ;)
I want one.
Sweet husband, you are the cutest there ever was. Thanks for buying me a plush killer whale.
Saturday night we went out for dinner on the Riverwalk, which is essentially a super cute, random river jungle with a plethora of restaurants.
Sunday morning was spent on the Riverwalk again, getting some exercise and taking pictures with less people in the background. ;)
On the way home, we stopped for lunch in Austin, where street artists are really channeling their inner elegance. Hahaha.
Hubs got his favorite, Potbelly’s!
And I got my favorite. Pizza, of course.
We had a blast, but we are happy to be home snuggling this nugget!
He seems pretty tired today…all that playing with Lexi and Grandma & Grandpa wore him out. :)
And today is definitely a Monday after vacation. Boring, dieting, and blah. ;) I’m looking forward to getting back into my running this week and working on that summer list! :)
Have a happy week loves!
Hubs and I are off to a late anniversary celebration getaway for the weekend. I’ll post pictures of our adventures when we return. :)
For now, look at how handsome my dog is, because I’m going to miss him oodles this weekend. Thanks Mom and Dad for watching our dog child!
Happy weekend, darlings!
We were a little late setting up a shoot due to an excess of busy in the Boswell household, but I’m in love with how our 2-year anniversary shoot came out!
I literally have the best friend in the world. Kristi comes with me to 2nd shoot on almost all my weddings, and sometimes we shoot each other just for fun. It’s kinda awesome to be best friends AND photographers because we each get to document each other’s lives. :)
I got a little crafty the day of the shoot.
True story: we left this gorgeous field after about 2 minutes because we started finding a ton of nasty little ticks on us and we had a minor panic attack. Lol. There’s often a curse on pretty fields I find…
Shorts and shoes from Target, shirt from Old Navy. I have no idea where Andrew’s clothes are from, but he be looking fiiiine. ;)
My dad’s car is legendary. A certain paranoia comes over me each (rare) time I’m allowed to borrow it, and I drive 5 miles under the speed limit (even though that’s a heinous and ridiculous thing to do in a corvette) just in case. He was gracious enough to lend us his baby for this shoot. ;)
I think ^ this one is my favorite.
What a stud. :)
Another favorite. Thanks, Pinterest. ;)
Now to plan our 3-year shoot…;) Haha. Happy Wednesday loves!
