Roses & Thorns...the Sunday edition


  • Roses to my husband. I've been a little up and down lately and he's taken it all in stride.

  • Roses to working 4 days last week! I don't think I could have handled one more week at home!

  • Roses to Sonic and their delicious Java Chillers. I don't care if it's more of a milk shake than a coffee drink...it's amazing and totally worth each and every single calorie.

  • Double Roses to the Sonic drive thru girl who gushed all over my wedding rings and told me I married a good one. I tend to agree...he's definitely a keeper. And I still love when people notice my rings...they are pretty gorgeous if I do say so myself!

  • Roses to my favorite radio station calling itself Kansas City's "Thanksgiving" station. No Christmas music until after 11/26. Respect the Turkey!

  • Roses to my jeans fitting better. Two weeks of healthy eating and I already see and feel a difference!

  • Roses to my bestie for sending me half of a giant bag of gum. It's just wasn't Halloween without rotting my teeth out on pure sugary bliss!!

  • Roses to all my blog friends who keep me smiling on a daily basis. Living 700 miles away from all my IRL friends has been hard so it's nice to know you all aren't going anywhere no matter where I live!


  • Thorns to MIZZOU for embarrassing my Wildcats. At home. On senior day. It was a sad, sad day in K-State land.

  • Thorns to normal November weather finally rearing it's ugly head. Good-bye flip flops!

  • Thorns to missing the KC Bloggers lunch! Believe me ladies, I would have had a MUCH better time with all of you then I did watching the massacre that was K-State football.

I totally agree about the "normal" Nov weather returning.. Blah. But, loe all your roses, girly! I also love random compliments (like your sonic interaction) Totally can make your day, right?!

Jax said...

...and from what you've written, etc, I agree with the Sonic girl that you've definitely got a good one. ;)Ya'll are adorable. :)

Congrats to seeing results from your healthy eating! A better fitting pair of jeans is the best feeling in the world sometimes!

I'm glad to hear you've got a radio station holding on for you for thanksgiving!

I need to get to a Sonic immediately. You know they play commercials here religiously for YEARS...and are just now building one?! Boo.

UMMM but I like how there are way more roses than thorns! That's a good sign!

I have never been to a Sonic and want to try that place so bad. I also don’t mind getting a compliment from time to time on my rings. It makes me smile, so I totally know what you mean. I love Christmas music, but I agree and think that it’s a little early for that. Congrats on eating well!! It feels so good when you start to see the results. I think it’s great to have good blog friends too ;)

Sorry the weather is cooling down. I think you sent the warmth this way, because it was in the 60’s all weekend. That is not normal November weather, but I’ll take it!
