Big Decisions


I'm a really bad procrastinator, I sometimes put things off for super long periods of time years even.  Recently I have come to the conclusion that I'm not getting any younger and what the heck am I waiting on?! This year I've made some big decisions. I've had the same Corolla since I was 16 she's been a great car & with me through a lot. It wasn't until I started driving my mom's Rav4 that I realized how practical SUVs are so much easier for grocery shopping & up higher so you can see where people are, what a novel concept I know! I thought about how cute the Kia Souls were but decided to mull it over some more(meaning like a year lol). Basically being without a radio for couple years & the relentless summer heat making its annual appearance again helped me decide that now was as good as time as any to get a new car. I must admit, it's pretty great having an awesome A\C, a radio and Bluetooth oh and pretty much no blind spots! It is now a whole new experience getting from point A to point B.







Unfortunately your own group of dancing hamsters are not included with your purchase lol. Also on a random fashion and design note, how cool it would be if they actually made cars in the same color as the pantone of the year. I think my car would look pretty awesome  in radiant orchid.....oh yeah!

The other big decision I made was health related, my feet have been hurting for quite a while now when I walk, and I recently found out that surgery and physical therapy was the only way to really fix my problem. I was not looking forward to being in a cast for 6-8 weeks & asking people for help all the time. But the pain was getting pretty unbearable so I had surgery last week and now I am laying about and recuperating. I have really been amazed at how all the little things I was worried about have worked out, God has provided for me in many ways and reassured me that this is what I needed to do and I could rely on Him to take care of me through the help of supportive family and friends.

God has really shown me a lot this year, that everyday is a gift and accomplishing the little things might be a small miracle but it is a miracle none the less, and for that I will be forever grateful and amazed. All that to say I don't know how much energy I'm gonna have left for blogging in the near future, so we'll see how that goes.

Congrats on the new ride! It's beautiful :) I've had my current car for quite a while now, and while my ac still works perfeclty...it sounds like I'm piloting a helicopter or something when I'm driving it. I'm going to be replacing it sometime this year or early next year. The Soul's look really nice!

I hope you're foot feels better soon!

I LOVE the Kia Soul. My friend has one in red and it is so much fun. I think the pink one is adorable too ;-) Did you get your blog back???

Floral Print Excitement

I'm not much of a girly girl but I am sucker for a floral print. Most of my favorite clothes have some kind of floral or abstract patter...
