Share Your World & Bummer


Happy Thursday everybody!  I'm participating in another blogger link-up in hopes to get some inspiration for things to write about.  We shall see!!

Go back five years, would you have pictured your life as it is now or would it have been different?  If so, how or why?

Five years ago I had just turned 21 and was in my 4th and next to last semester of nursing school.  I was so wrapped up in school and thinking about where I would work that the whole marriage and babies thing seemed like something from the distant future.  I never would've imagined that I would meet my husband through a friend who I kind of had an on again/off again relationship with, get married 1 year and 8 months later and then move to Alabama!!  But here we are and I wouldn't change anything about it.  

 In a perfect world with no attachments, my career would be...

Absolutely no attachments?  I would be a mom.  I've always wanted to be a mom and can't wait for that day, but we want to wait a few years before bringing a Brekke or Baron Jr. into the world.  We ideally would like to be in a house and get to spend some time with just the two of us before we rock our world with a screaming infant at 2am, 3:30am, and 6am every. single. day.   But with that said, if my husband told me he wanted to have a baby now I'd be on board :)

Name one thing you do {or don't do} that the 
world may think strange of you. 

I know that I'm a strange person but I'm having trouble coming up with something. Hmmmm.... My husband thinks it's weird that I dip my grilled cheese in apple sauce.   I don't really care for aquariums, so might think that's strange.  I used to be terrified to even go into one, I'm getting much better, but they still make me a little jittery.


Bummer of a Lot Update:
So yesterday I posted that we were going to meet with our Buyer's Agent and discuss holding a lot that we loved.  Well....yesterday afternoon I got a call from the realtor that works for the builder who told me that they had sold that lot earlier this week!  We were very upset because Nicole, our Buyer's Agent had spoken with the builder on Tuesday and was told that no one had significant interest in that lot and that we could hold it.  Apparently the communication between the builder and the realty company that represents the builder sucks.  So it's a done deal and there's nothing we can do unless the couple who purchased the lot has some problem with their financing, and I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

I don't want to say that we are heartbroken, just upset.  It's the last lot in that neighborhood that we would want to be on so that means we kind of have to start all over again.  I know that we'll find something that we love and that will suit us perfectly, it's just upsetting right now.  We're meeting Nicole to look at some more houses on Saturday so hopefully we'll get excited again soon.

I am RIGHT THERE WITH YOU on your answer #2. I've always dreamed of being a Wife & a Mom. We are waiting a few years for the same reasons.. but I too, I go for it now. It would just be better to wait.

I dip pork chops into Applesauce but never Grilled Cheese. I may have to try it.

Thanks for linking up. Be sure to come back next Thursday for more.

I want to learn more and more! :)

Hey! Found you from Jessica's link up.

Sorry about that lot! We were going to try and sell ours quickly then my husband forgot about the home equity loan so after 20 days of nothing but decluttering and cleaning, we decided to wait until spring. It's like being punched in the gut!
