Friday Letters

Dear Seattle: Thank You so much for looking so pretty with all the blue and green for our beloved Seahawks

*****

Dear Seahawks: Now is our time! It’s been a long time coming. Time to bring a championship to Seattle. Your whole city is behind you.

****

Dear iPhone: Could you please still work? I don’t need you dying right now.

****

Dear Husband: I’m sad this is our last full weekend together until tax season is over. I will miss you.

***

Dear Rain: Please go away. I’m not a fan right now. I don’t like my pants getting wet when I head to my car.

***

Dear March: It’s time for Sounders season to start so I would appreciate it if you got here already. They have made too many moves for me not to be excited!

***

Dear Ulta: Why would you send me a 20% coupon when I’ve been eyeing the Naked 3 Platte. Now I need to go and get it.

***

Happy Blue Friday!

GO SEAHAWKS

Would You Rather/Update

Hello Lovelies!

Long time no talk.

Sorry that this post went up a day late. I’ve been super busy. For an update read the end of the post.

It’s Weds (technically Thursday)¬†which means Would You Rather!

For those of you that are new, let me explain to you this game.

Each week we are given a series of questions. The questions are either/or type questions. You need to pick which one you would rather.

Simple huh?

Here we go!

Would you rather…

…be a giant hamster or a tiny rhino?

… jump into a pool of marshmallows or a pool of jello?

… be friends with Dr. Sheldon Cooper¬†from the Big Bang Theory or Dr. Temperance Brennan from Bones?

My Answers:

I would rather be a giant hamster. I’ve never been tall in my life so getting to be a giant something will be awesome.

I would rather jump into a pool of marshmallows. They would be a lot softer for you to land on.

I would rather be friends with Sheldon. He is too funny.

Next Week’s Questions:

I’m changing it up for next week.

It’s your turn.

Come up with a question by midnight on Sunday and I will post them on Monday. so we are all prepared for Weds.

 Be creative. Be funny.   

ūüôā

As promise I will give you a little update.

Life has gotten in the way of my blogging. Between working 40+ hours a week and being a wife I’m tired. By the time I get home, I’m too tired to do anything besides sit on the couch. I really don’t have an excuse for not blogging other then life. I will try and do better.

Any one got tips how to mange life and blogging?

Until next time,

Jennifer

Simple huh?

Here we go!

Would you rather…

… have an extra hour of sleep or have $40 given to you free and clear every day?

… have a job as (your favorite’s celebrity) assistant or president of prestigious university?

… have a private jet or a private island?

… own a polar bear or a penguin?

My Answers:

I would rather have an extra hour of sleep. The money would be nice but with an extra hour of sleep I could get more done.

I would rather be president of a pretigious university. It would be way stressful being someone’s assistant.

I would rather have a private jet. With a private jet I could go anywhere I want.

I would rather own a penguin. Penguins are be far the best animals. They are always ready for a party.

Next Week’s Questions:

Would you rather…

I’m Back

Hello lovelies!

It’s been way too long. But I’m back!

I’ve been a little under the weather. Actually that’s a lie. I’ve been a lot under the weather. I stretched my cornea bad which led to a ton of pain. After days of resting I’m starting to see again so I’ll be able to write more! I have tons of posts planned and ready to go. So keep an eye out for them.

GO SEAHAWKS!!! SUPER BOWL BOUND!

Until next time!

Weekly Wishes #1

Hello lovelies!

Weekly Wishes is a place for me to talk about my goals/ideas/wishes for the upcoming week. This is inspired by The Nectar Collective.

{One}

Catch up on the shows on my DVR: I’ve created¬†such a bad habit of recording shows and never actually watching them. By the time I sit down to¬†watch them, most of the¬†shows¬†have been deleted to make¬†room for current epsoides. I’m hoping to catch up on Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Snooki & JWOWW. Plus American Idol starts this week so I need to make room to record it.

{Two}

Make dinner at least twice a week: For most people, this seems like such an easy goal but around my household it’s not. Between my commute (which takes 1.5 to 2 hours each way) and my husband working late for tax season we hardly ever get to cook dinner. It’s microwave cooking and takeout¬†FTW.¬†I’m actually scheduling time this week to make some nice meals.

{Three}

Organize the mail: Right now our mail is everywhere around the house. I tend to leave a lot of the important paperwork (bills) on the counter so that way they will get paid but my husband tends to clean them up. Either in the garbage or some random place. We are trying to compromise and find some middle ground.

{Four}

Attend a zumba class: My best friend is getting married in May and she asked me to be her matron of honor; which¬†means buying¬†a dress. I need to get in a little better shape. I’m not a fan of running or going to the gym but I¬†like to attend dance type classes.¬†Zumba it is!

Hopefully I can achieve all my goals for this week.

What are some of your goals for the upcoming week?

Wishing you a great week!

Jennifer

Sunday Thoughts

100happydays

Hello Lovelies!

I came across this question around the internet. Can you be happy for 100 days in a row?

When I first came across it,  I had to take a moment and think about it. The idea seems so simple yet it took me a few moments to figure out something. We live in a world where we focus on the negativity in our lives; whither it be in our own lives, celebrities, or the news. I would love to be able to read the news and see one happy story. Which is why I decided to participate in this challenge.

For the next 100 days on Instagram I will be posting every day something that makes me happy. Follow along on my journey @jdspencers.

Books 'n' Bloggers Swap

Something that makes me happy is getting to participate in blogger swaps. The latest one that I’m excited about doing is Books n Bloggers Swap¬†hosted by Chaotic Goddess Swaps. ¬†The best part about the swaps is getting to meet new bloggers.

Here are the rules:

Your Swap Objective

Send your partner THREE books:

A book you love
A book you haven’t read but are interested in
A book from your partner’s wish list

Books ‘n’ Bloggers Swap Rules

Send books that¬†fit your partner’s genre preferences.

Currently & a swap

Today I’m linking up with Harvesting Kale.

Hello Lovelies!

Currently is a link-up that I recently starting participating in. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Go check it out.

This week’s theme:

resolving, anticipating, eating, making, remembering 

Currently, I’m¬†resolving¬†to get better from this darn cold. My husband and I both have been sick so we can’t take care of each other. It hasn’t been fun. I’ve been sick more in the last two months then I ever have before.

Currently, I’m¬†anticipating this weekend. Since tax season is almost here, my husband’s work is going on a ski retreat this weekend. ¬†They are able to bring a plus one aka me! We are spending the weekend in Oregon.

Currently, I’m¬†eating nothing. I got home from work not too long ¬†ago so I’m trying to figure out dinner still. Hopefully I will eat something soon.

Currently, I’m¬†making a packing list for this weekend. Like everyone else, we waited until the last minute to pack. We need to get moving on that.

Currently, I’m¬†remembering¬†that my rain jacket is in my car. I should probably go and get it. I have a feeling I’m going to neeed it.

12 Days of Christmas Swap

As you can tell by the title, this post is a two part post.

This year I particapted in the 12 days of Christmas a Holiday swap hosted by Chaotic Goddess Swaps.

For this swap, you and your partner brought 12 gifts for each other.

unnamed

Here are my presents from my partner.
I was partnered with Alison from the Rosy Snail.
She hit the nail on the head with my gifts.  I love them. They were nothing that I expected. Not only did she get me something but she remembered something for Stella. There were items ranging from necklaces, nail polish, makeup brushes, and even chai tea. She marked each gift with a different day that I tried to make them last for a couple of days. It was driving my husband nuts having them all over the kitchen table which made it even better. One of the best parts about this swap was getting to know Alison. I had a blast emailing her. It was like online dating in a way. I would recommend this swap to everyone.

I will try and write this weekend but no promises!

See you later,

Jennifer

Would You Rather Weds?

wur

Hello Lovelies!

It’s Wednesday which equals would you rather!

For those of you that are new, let me explain to you this game.

Each week we are given a series of questions. The questions are either/or type questions. You need to pick which one you would rather.

Simple huh?

Here we go!

Would You Rather…

… kiss a jellyfish or step on a crab?

… forget who you are or forget everyone else?

… meet a space alien or travel to space?

My answers:

I would rather step on a crab. I’ve never heard of anyone dying from stepping on a crab. Now jellyfish, those suckers can kill you.

I would rather forget who I am. I think of the movie “50 first dates.” I would hate to forget everyone around me.

I would rather meet a space alien. I’ve never done well on things that fly. I get motion sickness pretty easy. If the space alien could come to me that would be great.

Next Week’s Questions:

Would you rather…

…have one wish granted today or three wishes granted in 10 years?

… be rich or famous?

…¬†¬†be super strong or change into animals?

If you participate, let me know below and I will check out your post. I will make this an official linkup soon. Pinky Promise.

Have a great hump day!

Top Ten Tuesday- Goals for 2014

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish

Hello Lovelies!

This week’s theme is Top Ten Goals for 2014 (bookish or non-bookish).

Bookish Goals

1. Read/Listen to 52 books this year: 52 books would equal one book a week.

2. Write one book review a month: I read so many books and need to get my opinions out.

3. Join or start a book club: I love the idea of a getting a group of people together and talking about books.

4. Re-read 5 books that I read over a year ago: Sometimes when you re-read something you miss something.

5. Read the books I already brought before I buy more: I have way too many books on my kindle that I need to read before I go get more.

Non-Bookish Goals

6. Make better food decisions: Not only will I be eating better but I will feel healthier.

7. Meet at least 2 bloggers in real life

8. ¬†Attend a blogger conference: I’m thinking about going to Go Blog Social in April

9. Donate clothes every couple of months

10. ¬†Go on a vacation: It’s always nice to get out of town for a couple of days.
