Virtual Coffee 9.28.10

I found this awesome meme at Lucky Number 13.

Every Tuesday a group of bloggers “meets” for coffee via blog posts.  I thought it would be a fun way to not only update what’s been going on this past week, but also give you a little bit of insight into my every day life – outside of pictures!

So…here we go!  If we were really meeting for coffee this afternoon…

I would tell you that I am super excited for our first anniversary next week!  I can’t believe it’s already been a year and we’re spending the day at Disneyland and get to see World of Color for the first time.

I would tell you that I’m anxious about this weekend.  I don’t know anything for sure, but I have a feeling my husband has some sort of anniversary surprise for me.  I honestly have no idea what it is, but I guess I’m anxious because I do not like the unknown…especially when I know there IS an unknown (or at least suspect it).  I like to plan my weekends – my shopping, my photo project, my to-do list – and with not knowing what’s going on, it makes it difficult to do that!

I would tell you that this whole trying to conceive thing is really starting to wear on me.  People are getting pregnant and having babies all around me.  I’m trying so hard to be patient and trust that it will come in God’s perfect timing, but it’s not easy.  I constantly am asking what it is that God has for John and I before we bring a new little life into this world.  What does He want from us before that time?  I’m still searching for that answer.

I would tell you that my weight loss is going really well!  I’m down 7-pounds and am really enjoying my morning walk/jogs.  I wish I was more in shape so I could run longer and more often (right now I’m at 3-miles with a 1/2 mile warm-up and cool-down walk three times a week).  I’m planning to run a 5K on Thanksgiving morning.  I used to run cross country in high school.  I hated every step of it.  I’m not sure what’s changed in the past 5 years but I would like to start running in 5K races on a regular basis as I build up to a marathon (eventually!).

I would tell you that I’ve got a major nesting bug…and no nest.  We’re living with my sister to save for our own house.  It’s been challenging at times.  I have to remind myself sometimes that when we have our house, it will have been worth it.  We’re coming up on the 6-month mark on November 1…half-way-ish (we agreed on a year…I think we’re going to actively start looking in February or March).

Okay…there it is!  Lots of stuff I probably wouldn’t share under normal circumstances!

Wanna join?  Head on over and grab a “seat.”

join me for coffee!
