Two is better than one..

Can I just exaggerate for a minute and say
"Is there anything worse than losing one earring?!"
Earrings are by far my most favorite accessory so I tend to have a lot of them.
My mom is a perpetual earring loser so I must have got this from her because I tend to lose a lot of them too!

And I never lose the cheap ones I still have from Claire's, I always lose my most favorite,
the ones I save for special occasions!
So the other day it was a special occasion....well ok Ben and I were going to Applebees haha, 
it is the only thing open by the time he gets home, anyways date night nonetheless!
On the way home, around midnight I wanted to lay my chair back and sleep.. and unlike some people (Jennica) 
I cannot for the life of me sleep in earrings!
I sometimes get in bed with earrings and am to lazy to get up and take them out and don't want to lose them on the floor so I stick them in my pillowcase for safekeeping, just have to make sure I don't stab an eye out in the middle of the night!  Ben finds this habit very weird..

ANYWAYS, this is suddenly seeming like a pointless post but I will continue.
I took my earrings out and put them in my purse and had a 10 minute car nap on the way home.

A couple days later on the way to church, I went to go put in said purse earrings and only one was there.
After much frantic digging, I realized I had lost one earring.  EEERRRRRGGG!
I have been losing so many lately, it would almost be better if I just lost both earrings because then it wouldn't be as frustrating as left with just one to remind me!
Please tell me you people sympathize with me right? Losing one earring is the worst!!

This story does get better believe it or not, because that night Ben was moving some stuff around and found my lonely other matching earring in our room, I just love that man!
All joy was restored to my Sunday and I will hyperbolize (don't think that is a word) again and just say...
"There is no better feeling than finding a lost earring!"

....unless by the time you found said matching earring, you have thrown the one you still had away because you gave up on finding the other one and yet, still have only one earring...

A pretty long post about a lost earring but what the heck...

Note to Ben-"Do Not Buy Wife Diamond Earrings"

So remember in my last post  how I said I was so out of my mind bored that 
on Sunday's I tell Ben to be as messy as possible during the day so that on Monday I can distract myself  and have something to do by tidying up?

Well I guess we really got into it....

This is what I awoke to today...


When we were younger and my mom would walk into our super messy teenage rooms she would always say
"Did a bomb go off in here or what?!"

And that is precisely what it looks like happened in our room!

Don't you worry though, I will have this all cleaned up and be back to my "House" All Day Marathon on USA  in no time!

Lose Lose

So, I have been here in Cape Girardeau in Missouri for just over 2 weeks.
I don't want to rant or complain because I want this blog to be a positive place but...
It has been pretty rough I am not going to lie, but I am kind of getting used to it...maybe...
I figure only girls read this so I feel ok about saying that this week has been especially bad because it may or may not have been that time of the month, and I may or may not have been sobbing on the treadmill...to extreme home makeover....(come on you know it's emotional)
I don't have anything to do all day and I don't have a car.
Unfortunately Ben doesn't get home till pretty late like 11 pm, so sometimes I don't talk to another human all day.
I am desperate for things to do during the day so when Ben gets home at night, I tell him to be as messy as possible, so the next day I can clean up and pass the time.  I wear as many clothes as possible so laundry day comes sooner and some days it is two full days without me being outside.
The plus is that I run a lot on the treadmill, and I am motivated to go for a long time cause again, it passes the time.
Another hard thing is that Missouri is in full tornado season swing, so I am constantly scared out of my mind and jump out of my skin at every noise I hear outside that remotely sounds like a siren.
Like I said though, I am getting used to it, although when I am done the next season of Private Practice, my last TV show that I have not watched every episode of, I am not sure if I will be ok.

So I have a decision to make...I have to decide if I should go back to Provo for summer semester, that way I would have friends, a car, job and school but I would have to be without Ben for a long time. So it is basically a lose-lose situation. So here is my list...help me decide

PROS OF GOING BACK TO PROVO                                   CONS OF GOING BACK TO PROVO
-I have friends in Provo                                                                   -I won't see Ben for a really long time :(
-I have a car in Provo                                                                     -I will be a third wheel a lot in Provo
-I can go to summer school                                   -Ben will be all alone and eat way too many grilled cheese.
-I can get a job maybe                                                       -I'll most likely well,... definitely stop running haha
-We would save money on Rent in Missouri                                -Finals are during Echo Lake family reunion
-No Tornadoes                                                                   -I just discovered Panera Bread-INCREDIBLE
-No Humidity
-A decent mall within 100 miles
-I would not be living in a hotel with no oven and no people
-There are no Red Vines, Fro Yo or Cafe Rio in Missouri-Can you believe that!?
-I know where things are in Provo

So it looks like I will probably be heading back to Cougar Town, I know it is the most logical thing but I am definitely going to miss Ben way too much...

My thoughts on bullets...

Ok so latley.....

  • First off I loved the Royal Wedding and ate up every second of it, I watched all day long, she looked gorgeous, it was such a fairytale.
  • We took a little trip to Phoenix with my family and it was so so so great, I could definitely live in AZ, you just need air conditioning and a pool.  
  • I love that you can eat outside with no wind, get a tan, outdoor malls any time of the year and I love the weather at night time, it is so hot still and relaxing.
  • It was so so so good to see my family and I miss them already.
  • Ben left from Phoenix to go to Missouri to sell and I stayed a couple days longer, I hate being apart but I join him in 5 days!
  • I am really proud of him for working so hard out there already.
  • I chopped my hair off!! I was not planning on this but I kind of love it!
  • Although I am so excited to see my husband, I am not that excited about this summer, I am really going to need to keep myself busy so I don't go stir crazy.
  • Osama is dead, which is a nice relief I guess, I am just not sure what it means now?  Also I am pretty sure Obama thinks he did it himself. 
  • I really like Twitter these days, mostly because I love Justin Bieber!
  • We are really into Settlers of Catan lately, so fun
  • My brother is doing super awesome in Chili on his mission, his emails home are so funny and I miss him a lot.
  • My friend Jordan got married last weekend, she looked so beautiful and happy and wow I missed my wedding so much, is the whole renewing vows thing tacky, because I totally want to be a bride again.
  • I will miss Provo because I will miss our home, our friends, Cafe Rio and a car to drive
  • I watched Notting Hill for the first time yesterday-I absolutely loved it.
  • My little sister Hailey is so cute, she is so special and precious!

and some pictures to accompany my randomness....
