I'm such an old lady...

So, somehow I threw my back out...or something? All I know is my back has been in pain for a while now (but this isn't very unusual for me), and last night at Zumba, all of a sudden BAM- I felt like if I moved wrong I would BREAK MY BACK! Yeesh. So anyway...went to the chiro this morning and he adjusted like...EVERY PART OF MY SPINE. No joke. I usually only have to adjust upper and neck. This time he adjusted tail bone, lower back, upper back, and neck! Talk about craziness. It's better but I've been icing/heating it off and on as well as doing these super sweet stretches that would be really embarrassing in public.

While I was icing/heating... I watched Miracle on 34th street! 1994 version. With cute Matilda. I don't know her real name...anyway- it just put such warm fuzzies in my heart! I'm so excited for Christmas time.

"What else did you ask for Susan?"..." A baby brother...cya!"

Well, we are going to Cali soon and I can't WAIT! Hopefully my back recovers quickly.

Alright, till next time. Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!

Thanksgiving print in the shop

This new thanksgiving print is in the shop! You can buy the digital file for $4, or a 16x20 print for $15. I'll be adding more stuff this next week to the shop. Stuff that would be great for Christmas presents! Yippee! So be sure to keep checking in.

My new favorite outfit

Yippee! I got this dress at a thrift store a while back for like 3 bucks. I never wore it cause I wanted to alter the chest area to fit more properly:) Pretty soon it became apparent that I'd never do that...at least not for a while. SO I just decided to wear it today and I love it! You see that waist with the buttons?! Inlove... I just had to share. Clay just updated me that I look like a 90 year old woman. Oh well. Ill probably eventually shorten it and take the chest in so it looks less 90 year old:)

I'm pretty much inlove with those shoes I'm wearing. Got them from Kohls a while back when I had like...2 or 3 coupons? I don't know all I know is I got them for cheap. I wear them all the time now.

Yesterday Clay and I raked and raked and raked our leaves. Paul came to help and we still raked and raked and then put the leaves in the truck which took a while! Deary me, it wasn't fun. But, at least our lawn wont be soggy/nasty in spring time. It's so chilly these days, its going to snow and stay anytime now.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am thankful for these things:

crisp air (but not cold)
book of mormon

Obviously there's lots more and obviously that is not in order of most thankful :) But you know, those things are kinda big in my head right now I suppose.

Welp, I'm off. Have a happy Sunday!

Back in the game

Well, I think I'm finally getting better from my danged cold! I feel like I've been such a loner and pathetic person for the past week. Actually, like...month...ha! Cause for a while I was just so focused on the exam and studying, then quickly after I took the exam I got this horrid cold and have been bummin around for like a week. FINALLY, I am feeling better. Still got a snot nose...but I can deal with that.

It's funny how when you don't work out consistently, you don't miss it. But when you DO work out consistently, you miss it! I have been itching to get back to Zumba... and Clay even told me today, "maybe you shouldn't go...your still not completely better", but I just felt like I needed it. BOY do I feel good. I'm so glad I went. Zumba for me is good physically AND emotionally.

I'm so excited to go to California in a couple weeks! I talk about it daily. It's just gonna be great. And then a month later we'll go to Oregon! What a happy holiday season. I'm trying so hard to resist the temptation to decorate for Christmas early. I just am so excited. I LOVE christmas decorations. Thanksgiving decor is boring :(

I have so many sewing projects its out of control. Not to mention some of the christmas presents I have to make. I have a couple I'm really excited about! Yippee!

Have any of you been watching the news lately? Seriously, I think I realized this week why I love celebrity gossip/news so much...its not DEVASTATING like real world news. This is of course, in regard to the Penn State scandal. I seriously think that if a man molests a child his penis should be cut off. I know that's graphic...but seriously. It's just one of those things I can't comprehend. Also, did you know that over 90% of pedophiles who are released from jail get arrested again for another offense? In my opinion, the other ten percent probably just don't get caught. This is when I think our justice system is messed up. These are the people that deserve LIFE in prison...without a penis :)

Can I tell you how happy I am to be done with the CPA exam? I'm still amazed that I even passed. And so grateful.

I'm probably going to have to get my wisdom teeth removed...which basically sucks. I keep thinking...are we ever going to have a phase in life where we aren't paying all our money to doctors? Of course after we are done with Lyme Disease, we will start paying baby doctors...so you know, it probably will never end!

Well, to end on a happier note...tonight I made a yummy soup and ate it with Clay at the kitchen table, cleaned the entire kitchen, and went to Zumba. To me, that is such a productive day! I am very pleased.

OH YEAH- last thing...Clay and I have been watching Wonder Years before we go to sleep, and it is so fun. We both laugh so much. I love that show. If you want to giggle a lot, or SMILE a lot...watch that show on netflix. When we are watching, I'll realize I am smiling really big, and I look at Clay and so is he :) Just cause the characters are all so sweet, and so funny, its hard not to smile!

Alrighty- that's all for now!

I PASSED THE CPA EXAM! I'M DONE! I'm sick at home right now, and so when I saw my score I was in my living room by myself jumping in circles screaming. No joke. Now I need to lay down to recover from that spout of exertion:) I'm so relieved, happy, and proud of myself! YAY!
