The Awesome Good News.

First things first. I put up a Christmas tree this weekend. Since I'm a huge fan of the Charlie & The Chocolate Factory movie, I decided to theme a 2 foot tree into Willy Wonka tree. This picture was taken with my cell phone and you can't really see the ornaments. However, when I get back from vacation on Thursday I'll be sure to post actually pictures of the super cute ornaments. 
Now....I could be mistaken but I think some of you have been uber excited and anxious to know about the causes of my recent happy mood of pooping butterflies and vomiting rainbows. Infact, I would dare say that some of you have been so excited to hear my good news that you've e-mailed me begging to know. Well without further ado....
I am 100% happy with my life and how things seem to be going. Why you ask? Well let's see. I'll give you a break down of how I've become happy and the reasons why. 
1.5 months ago I felt completely lost in life and unhappy. I felt like my life was ending that I was never going to obtain the things I've always wanted. Now...
  • Work was driving me insane. Constantly changing my schedule. NOW..I have an almost set schedule plus I'm getting 3 days off a week!
  • Discover Card. I had been owing them practically my first unborn child. Well I finally, FINALLY sold my old car and now I feel like they only own maybe a limb or two of the unborn child. 
  • Negative Friends. Who needs them? I had a few of them in my life and I finally cut them out of it. Who wants to always be around a debbie downer or around someone who thinks their model beautiful and in turn judges you? Not me. And I'm loving the silence. 
  • Guys. Just when you least expect it they can come through for you. They can show you the reason why people get married, they can show you the reason why people start families, they can show you the reasons why they love you. 
  • Art. I was never really good at art in school. I was actually horrible. Well in my spare time I started going to an oil painting class and even though I don't think I'm that good. I love it! It's just so fun! 
So those are just a few reasons why I'm so happy.....oh did I tell I mention the biggest kicker of them all? It looks like I'll be needing to practice the lyrics, "The Stars at night, are big and bright....deep in the heart of TEXAS!"

Here's a photo of an oil painting I just finished for my class....it's cool....go ahead and laugh. I had fun painting!

I thought I was jumping the gun by getting my more Thanksgiving fall decorations out of our storage shed last night! I think you beat me!

So happy to hear that your life is practically perfect :) Isn't it incredible when guys do something completely out of the blue and remind you why we love them so much (even when they are total buttheads?)

I loove the painting! You have some artistic ability in you for sure! And, your newly found art skills have inspired me to look into art classes on base when Mr. Top Gun deploys.

I love it when everything clicks and falls into place like that! I'm so happy that you're feeling better and things are going so well for you!
That Christmas tree is adorable!! You're hilarious! Love it! :)
Oh, and not good at art? Are you kidding me???! That painting is fabulous! I'm no expert but I think you've definitely got some talent! That's really cool!

Jessica said...

Good for you girl! It sounds like everything is falling into place for you. Sometimes it takes us waking up one day and something just clicking... that you're going to take control of anything you're unhappy about. And I'm so glad you've done that!
The art? You've got soem major talent. I can barely draw a stick figure!
I'm afraid i'm going to need more details though if possible. What has this amazing guy done to put that grin on your face? Texas? Are you moving or just visiting? Wheennnn? What part? I know I know... I'm never satisfied

Cookie Crums said...

Ok! So I'm going to totally give you a hard time!! The tree is cool (even if it is September :) ) and the painting is pretty awesome.

You left a lot out! Guy? IS this still Matt??? And are you moving to Texas or going for a visit?? You left us totally hanging.

In all seriousness though, glad you are so happy with life now!! Nothing like knowing you're where you need to be.

SS said...

All great pieces of news... I'm so glad all the pieces are falling into place!

It's these times that you need to keep in the memory bank for when you are feeling out of sorts like you were just a bit ago, it really all does fall into place and happen the way it should eventually.

Ashley @ {Let Go, Laughing} said...
