January was quite a whirlwind with having a newborn. My mom was with me a few weeks in December and January to help with Evelyn. And, I had a really hard time adjusting once she left. I’m actually currently in Utah–I have spent about 10 days back in Utah with my mom. This postpartum and the bowel issues Evelyn has been having and the transition to two really took a toll on me. So, although I did well on some goals this month, I didn’t do well on others.
Yesterday, I talked about my crushes, including some of my fictional crushes. Well, today, I’m going to talk about which fictional couples I think are great together and good examples of real and fictional love.
I have had so many crushes throughout my life. Just about every grade, I had at least one. College was insane with crushes…I mean, it was BYU after all…women go there to get their M.R.S. degree (haha!). Today, for #LoveBlog, we are going to be talking about crushes.
But first of all, obviously my crush every day of the year is my husband, Justin! So, I decided I thought it’d be fun to give you my “crushes” in other topics.
I’m super excited to help cohost #LoveBlog with Belle Brita again this year! This is a daily linkup during the month of February, talking about anything and everything having to do with love. Each day has it’s own topic and anyone is welcome to join! Today’s topic is on Valentine’s Day!
I am one of the lucky girl when it comes to Valentine’s Day. My birthday is on February 10, so birthday surprises and V-day surprises come nearly back to back. Justin really spoils me: I get a gift for my birthday (and chocolate), a special dinner and/or date in between, then a gift and chocolate for Valentine’s Day. He calls it Valentine’s Week. And poor Justin…he did such a great job our first year of marriage that he feels he has to live up to that every year!
This year, it’s going to be a little more casual (I hope), since we paid for plane tickets for me and the kids to be in Utah right now. I think the best Valentine’s Day gift I gave Justin were some bacon roses. He absolutely loved them!
It’s a new year. I know a lot of bloggers have a list of books they want to read, already. I do too. It’s called, “all the books on my bookshelf that I own and have never read yet.” That was basically the same plan for last year, too. But, I love to include a library book now and then, or a book from Blogging for Books. I’ve even done some book reviews for Cedar Forts Publishing, which is a Mormon-owned (not Church-owned) publishing company. This month, I was actually contacted by the author or publisher of both books I read for Reading Roundup.
