7 Thoughts I’ve had this Week

I realize that I have neglected my blog and my faithful readers for quite some time now. And I am very, very sorry!

I have been thinking about the next chapter of my life and how I am going to continue writing my story. I will let you all in on my secret plan very soon! But for now, I will give you some of the thoughts I have had over the past week.

1. I realized that I yearn for a successful marriage much more than I yearn for a successful career. Now before everyone gets all feministy on me, let me tell you why I think this is the case. It came as a shock to me when I realized this, as I have always had big career goals for myself. What I realized is that in today’s society, it is so much harder to have a successful marriage than it is to have a successful career. And at the end of the day, your career won’t keep you warm at night. It won’t listen to you vent when life gets to be too much, and it won’t be at your funeral when you die. A successful marriage, in my opinion, means a happy, and successful family which is ultimately what I want. If I die never having a successful marriage and/or a happy family life, I will feel as though much of my life was a waste. If I die never having a successful career, I don’t think I will be as disappointed in myself.

2. If there are multiple people in a “selfie” shouldn’t it be called a “selvsie?”

3. I can’t believe that I’m graduating college in less than two months.

4. What am I going to do with my life? How am I going to pay off my student loans? How can I make money for this damn blog of mine? Will I ever be able to buy my own house?

5. Babies are so much smarter than us.

6. I really wish I knew what my cat is thinking.

7. Why is it so cold out? I packed most of my winter clothes already? I guess I’ll just have to stay home and watch Netflix all day.


Wedding Shows

It may be considered a little bit ridiculous how much I love wedding shows.  I love “Four Weddings” and “My Fair Wedding” and “Say Yes to the Dress.” I just can’t help it. I love the look on the bride’s face when she finds the perfect dress and I love to see how the couples interact with each other at the alter. I love when the groom gets choked up saying his vows or when their hands start shaking because they’re so nervous. 

I love the weddings that have personal touches to show the couple’s history or personality. I just love to watch these shows and think about my wedding. Who knows when that will be, definitely not anytime soon, but it gives me hope that there really is someone out there for everyone. It makes me realize that no matter how hard you work on the wedding or how much money you spend on making it just right, it will never compare to the amount of work it takes to keep a marriage alive and well. To make sure that the person you vowed to spend the rest of your life with is happy. 

I am willing to do all of that. I can’t wait. 

And I know who I’m going to do it with.
