Welcme back for another Own It linkup.
Own anything, big or little.
Have a confession session.
Things from the past week/month/yesterday or just in general.
A few, a lot, whatever you want.
I have officially become a homebody. I used to love being on the go go go non-stop, going out at night until the wee hours, but now I am 100% most happy with a night in. Out on the deck is preferable but curled up on the couch is just as fine too. I love sipping my wine and other summer cocktails but I'm also loving some weekends to just get to bed early and to wake up refreshed the next day and have a full day ahead. Don't get me wrong I am still loving my travel & nights out - just not every weekend. Derek recently started singing the line of the new Sam Hunt song to me so whenever making plans we always now say "my husband says I'm a homebody, so let's just have a house party."
I've been addicted to shopping more recently then ever before I think. I can't stop myself from "running into the mall" which is turning into a weekly thing or from browsing my favorites online. I mean how much easier can it get to hit the "purchase" button than when they have you save the credit card information. I blame this on last summer being all about wedding purchases and then being focused on decorating the new house. I now have time to get back to my true addiction.
I'm a mix of shy and outgoing all at the same time. When I first meet a new person, I'm usually trying to hide behind my husband or if we're at a restaurant I ask him to ask for whatever we need. At the same time though, depending on the situation I am so outgoing even if it's someone new, if I feel a vibe with you I can talk forever. When it's my family or friends around, 100% no shyness. Again, except if we're at a restaurant or something like that - I'm usually not the person asking the questions. Switching back to the shy, if I need to speak in front of more than about 10 people, even if I know them, I get SO nervous. I can't do it.
On that note - I feel like I would be TERRIBLE at dating. I would probably get so nervous, sweaty and filled with anxiety. I would 100% test out dating websites. I have had one serious boyfriend who you all now see around here as my husband.
I haven't used my gym membership since about April. I cannot get myself into a gym when it's this nice outside plus driving there is half of my battle. I do zumba every single morning - in the comfort of my own home :) And love walking outside as my workouts. Sweating it out inside a crowded gym is just not my thing right now, but come fall I know I'll be happy to get back.
I didn't go to Penn State, but I act like I do. People ask all the time if I did, sometimes even Derek because of how into college football we are. My parent's have another house in State College and season tickets so we base our fall season off football season, literally. I have more PSU gear than I do my own school, well that's not that hard - I went to a small school.
In the important conversations people have before getting engaged or married, I brought up Christmas and how I could never travel on Christmas or want to. I think Derek was a little surprised I threw in something so little but to me it was huge - anyone that knows me knows I am completely obsessed with Christmas - I'm already dreaming of this years. I need to wake up at home on Christmas morning - no if ands or buts about it. Luckily, he was cool with that one :)
While we're owning it, how about a recent embarrassment??
We ran into the mall very quickly on Saturday morning (we had to be on the golf course for Father's Day soon after) to get a few things framed for the basement and I begged to run in a couple stores. After nothing fit in gap I was rushing and threw my dress back on to run out and meet Derek and I kept asking him if it was pulled down in the back and looked okay because it felt weird and he said no I was good to go.
Fast forward about 15 minutes as I have my hands full of goodies (to be shared tomorrow) in Target to head to the dressing room when Derek came in to meet up with me and say hello by you know.. touching my butt and he says "wait, something is weird here, why are you wearing a dress with pockets on the butt, what kind of style is this???" I was confused and then we both froze and he said " Oh my gosh did you put the dress wrong" I touched the back and I did!! We both started hysterically laughing and instead of taking the direct route to the dressing room I squeezed between racks to stay hidden… not that it mattered at that point.
Easy mistake, yes?! no?! The photos below are of the dress on the wrong way.
Ok, your turn! Linkup below. If you missed out today, the linkup runs through Saturday so join in or come back the last Thursday (7/30) of next month!
