So What Wednesday

Holy cow, its been a while! I am easing into slow down mode, and much needed. I promise to be around  more often!

Linking up with Shannon from "Life After I Dew" for So What Wednesday

So What Wednesday
SO WHAT IF ......
.... I haven't blogged in 25 days. (actually i dont like this, at all. But I am happy to have my time back to blog)
.... I have only been gone form home for 4 days and I'm already homesick
.... I plan on sleeping on the plane the entire way home tomorrow
.... I had too many cinnamon/sugar soft pretzels at the hotel this week
.... I haven't cooked a meal in 3 weeks
.... I decided for the first time in my life to not fold my clothes nice and neatly into my suitcase for my return home. All I want to do is go to bed tonight, so everything is getting tossed in.
.... I missed Tavistock Cup yet again this year.... still haven't gone and my husband has gone three times. Maybe in  2 years when it's back?
.... I online shopped myself stupid while I was away this week.
.... I had a brownie everyday after lunch, they were worth it and I dont like dessert.
.... My new favorite snack is Skittles, the dark side version
Hope you all have been well. I promise to keep up on this! Promise!

Sorry its been a while since I've been on here! Work and life have been in full force! I promise to get back to blogging tomorrow! For now I leave you with a quote that has gotten me through work this first quarter and has pushed me to take my work a step further, even if it means putting in a little extra time.
See you tomorrow for So What Wednesday!

My Hubby

I saw this idea on my friend, Caroline's Blog, Simply Smithwick, and loved the idea. So I thought I would follow along. Now, I also laughed when I thought of doing this, as my Husband typically calls me his "satellite brain" and stores all information pretaining to both of us in my brain, so we'll see how this goes...
     1. How long have you been married?
       b: 3 years, 3 months
       a: 3 years
     2. Where was your first date?
       b: after a picked me up from the airport, we went to CPK, my fave!
       a: CPK
     3. Where was your first kiss?
       b: at adam's house
       a: my house
      4.Who first said, "I love you"?
       b: adam
       a: me
      5.What were your wedding colors?
       b: khaki and green
       a: green and khaki
      6.What is her most commonly used phrase?
       b: Totes! or probably something including a swear :(
       a: like
      7.Who is her celebrity crush?
       b: i have a few . . .
       a: there's a lot, but there is one with dark hair that I dont like.
      8. If she was ordering drinks for both of you, what would you each get?
       b: for me a red wine, for him a woodford with a lime
       a: she would get cab sav and i would get a bourbon
      9.What is the best meal she has ever cooked you?
       b: steak diane?
       a: there's so many
     10.What is the worst meal she has ever cooked you?
       b: I made some kind of soup one time that was GROSS
       a: not one that is memorable
     11.What is the most played song on her iPod?
       b: right now, Wagon Wheel
       a: probably something by Lady Antebellum
     12.What would she say is your most annoying habit?
       b: cracking knuckles while I nap, or chewing with mouth open (we're working on this)
       a: cracking my knuckles
      13.What is the last thing she does before she goes to bed?
       b: turn on our sound machine
       a: lately it's been turning on the sound machine
      14. What would you say is your favorite thing about her?
       b: that I can cook :)
       a: your strong will, and individuality. strong woman
      15. What's her go to drink at Starbucks?
       b: I dont drink coffee, so think Zen Tea
       a: chai latte
      16. What's her blog's name?
       b: The Nest The Laws Built
       a: The Nest The Laws Built
       I was surprised how much we matched on this. Starbucks was hard since I dont really go there, but I did used to order Chai Latte's. When I asked him my blog name he first said "It's Brittany, Bitch" and then laughed and said the right one. Although that would be a great name for my blog, ha!
Have a good weekend everyone!

Friday's Letters


a: thank you for you support on my blog post yesterday. I am so excited to be home for the next few weeks and spend time together. You are my everything. I am the lucky one.
Friends, followers and bloggers: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your messages, e-mails, text messages and comments yesterday. I felt very vulnerable and naked posting about my miscarriage, but I am glad I did and was overwhelmed by all the stories and support I received yesterday.
Sister: thank you for agreeing to ship me clothes of yours that I love, so that I can borrow them. Sister love is the best love and I am so glad I know that love with you.
p.s. your friends are amazing, I'm adopting them.
Tampa Bay Lightning: get it together! for the tenth time.
laundry: can you do yourself?
biggie- I still can't believe you are gone. I go through your messages and pictures all the time. I'm dreading your service on Sunday, I'm not sure I will be able to hold myself together. I hate goodbyes. I heard you are being laid to rest next to your Momma in Iowa, this warmed my heart. i miss you and love you.
whole foods: so excited to be reunited with you tomorrow. Hotel food took a toll on my body.
30th birthday: you are 65 days away, suggestions on what I should do between now and then?
happy friday everyone!
go out and do something fun this weekend!
