30 Days of Truth - Day 6

Something I hope I never have to do...

I hope I never have to bury a child. And I know this is terrible, but I just don't think I could ever take care of a child with a lifelong illness. I know that if it was God's will for my life and for their life, then He would give me the strength. And I know that He gives you the responsibility that He knows you can handle. It just breaks my heart to see children suffering. Although God knows how I would handle the situation, I have to admit that I don't think I would be okay.

These are the kids that were in our wedding! I love this picture! They are just so stinkin cute!

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 13

I don't have a list of goals written down anywhere, but I guess I keep a rolling list of goals in my head.

These would be goals for the next five years:

Graduate from college (both of them)
Find a job in the career I want
Build up an emergency fund
Pay off all debt (except the mortgage)
Find at least one friend that really has common interests with me
Have a child or two
Be a better housewife (cleaning and cooking on a routine basis)
Lose weight and be healthier

I believe that...

...the best years of my life have yet to come!
...I am more mature than most people my age.
...I have finally found the career that interests me most (I just have to finish school first!)
...I have the best husband in the world!
...despite our differences, my family is quite functional compared to most. my lifetime, I will see the US decline as a top world power.
...God is the Father and Jesus is the Son! And Jesus has died and risen again! By grace we are saved!
...Cinnamon is the smartest dog I've ever met. Well, her and Bambi are tied for first!
...this whole story about the resources of the earth running out is a bunch of poo!
...Jesus is coming back sooner than you think!

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 11

After you read this list of television shows that I watch on a regular basis, you will probably think that all I do is watch tv. And you will wonder how I get anything else done in life. Truth is, I'm a multitasker and tv (although distracting) motivates me to sit down and do my homework.

Criminal Minds
CSI (all of them)
Man vs. Food
Ice Road Truckers
American Pickers
Pawn Stars
Teen Mom
King of Queens
The Office
Big Bang Theory
How I Met Your Mother
Two and a Half Men
HGTV (there are few shows on this channel that I won't watch)
The Real Housewives (all but Atlanta)
Mike and Molly

I am afraid of heights... at an angle.
And that is how high we were sitting on Saturday. It was awful.

I have been on two great trips in my lifetime. One was the honeymoon, which I've already talked about. So I will show you pictures of my trip to Wyoming a couple years back!

The Grand Tetons in Jackson Hole
A quick trip into Montana!
I so wish I was this size still!

A ram
We got a lot closer than this, but he tried to charge the car behind us.

New Beginnings!

This weekend was the beginning of a couple of things.

We went to Dave Ramsey Saturday at the RBC Center. And we had a great time! Well we had a great time after we actually got inside. Traffic was terrible as the state fair is right across the street. We sat in traffic for an hour and were within viewing distance of the RBC Center the entire time! And apparently we made some kind of illegal move and were told to exit the property immediately. We went around some cones to get in. Yet the people at that entrance directed us down to the parking making no comment that we had done nothing wrong. Yet the two people at the parking section were rude and could not even answer my question about whether we would be allowed back on the property. That was an adventure. But we were not the only people to arrive late, so it was okay! And the next four hours flew by because we were actually having fun learning!

So after the show, we bought the home study kit to go through the 13-week class. We did the first lesson last night. It was eye-opening! The lesson lasted about 60 minutes, and we filled in the workbook answers while we listened. Afterwards we did our homework assignment which is to do a quickie budget of the four necessities: house, utilities, transportation, and food. We realized how much difference there was between our necessity bills and how much we are actually spending each month. And we have officially started on baby step 1 which is to save $1,000 in an emergency fund! I am so excited to have started this step! I don't even know the last time I had a decent amount in savings.

And to see Matthew's excitement over all of this has amazed me! I am so proud! I think I even shed a tear or two.. tears of joy of course. This is our beginning to live like no one else. The numbers don't lie and this is the motivation we needed!

The second thing is that my Solo Slim arrived this morning! And so today is the first day. I can already tell that my appetite is not as ravenous, for the lack of a more descriptive word! I didn't even finish my whole 6" sub for lunch! I am very optimistic about the next few weeks and to see the results! I haven't had any jittery feelings or heart racing. I haven't felt nervous or had any changes in temperature. And I have not felt nauseous. This may be the easiest diet ever!

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 7

You will probably notice a theme in my favorite movies.

My most loved movie of all time and for the rest of time is Forrest Gump! I love how it contains historical events, comedy, and drama. I just love it! Oh, and Tom Hanks!

I also love The Green Mile! It is a really touching movie in an unexpected way. And Tom Hanks is of course in this as well!

And Fried Green Tomatoes rounds it out! It's fantastically southern. It's back in the old days, the better days. It's in a small town. It's just fantastic!

Anyone see the theme? I kind of gave it away there at the end!

30 Days of Truth - Day 5

Something I hope I do in my life is... Well, there are so many things so I will make a list!

1. I hope that I have children. I want a few, at least 5. Most people love babies. I prefer children. I think that kids have the best personalities! I love all of their witty, little comments! They are just fun to be around! Now obviously the child must be a baby first, and that is fine. But I am just super excited for when they are slightly independent and full of life!

2. I hope that I can travel, domestically and internationally. I have a ton of trip ideas floating around in my head! I want to do a roadtrip on Route 66, the west coast, the midwest, the perimeter states, etc. I want to go on several cruises (Alaskan, Caribbean, European). I want to visit every state. I want to visit England, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, Czech Republic, and the list goes on. I have also always wanted to visit Russia, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and anywhere else I can find.

3. I hope that I can work from home once I have children. I grew up with a mom that worked full-time outside of the house. And I never thought anything bad of it. I think it's great to have a mom that works full-time. And I want to work full-time. But I just want to be there when they get home from school. I want to be at home in case they are sick. I want to be able to bake cookies and cook dinner every day. I want to be there to experience life with them.

4. I hope that I can teach my children everything they need to know. I want to be able to have enough money to pay for the things they want to experience (camps, sports, travels). But I want them to be creative and find ways of doing things the non-traditional route.

5. I hope that I can live reasonably, moderately, and with an abundance of joy and peace.

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 5

I have one sister. She's actually my half-sister. We have the same mom but different dads. She turned 13 the day after I was born. I'm sure you can imagine how the rest of this goes! She was the cool teenager. I was the pesky little kid. She started college the same day I started kindergarten.

I have always felt it was my job to make her feel as old as possible. Now that I feel old, I try not to rub it in as much.

It was also my job to tattle on her. She borrowed money from me a lot. And she would always say, "Now don't tell mom! I'm going to pay you back next week!" I love saving money, and I loved it even more when I was a child. So of course I'd give her long enough to leave the house before I would tell mom, "Shannon borrowed $10 from me! I want my money back, so you better make sure I get it!". My mom got mad about it every time. But as a six year old, I was rolling in money! I wish I had some of that back now.

Obviously, with their being a thirteen year age difference, we were never exactly best friends. She always picked on me telling me I was fat or I wasn't pretty. But I consider it's only fair since I ruined her teenage years! Now that I have gotten older, we are in the same stage of life. I just got married. She's getting married in November. We both have jobs. And we both have crappy friends. We've become closer over the last several years, but this last year and a half has probably been the best.

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 4

My parents have been married for 23 years. It is the second marriage for both of them. I was born not long after their first anniversary. And I've yet to figure out if I was planned or a whoops! Either way, I'm still here!

My Dad
I am his only child. My dad and I could be twins.. ya know, if only we'd be born at the same time! He is quiet and reserved, but when he feels strongly about something, he is quite outspoken. When I was little, you could find me laying in the recliner with my dad before bedtime watching Star Trek. He claims this is where I learned my math skills. My dad is terrible with grammar, spelling, and word choice. Our favorite words to pick on him about are bought and brought. He usually (99.9% of the time) uses the incorrect word in a sentence. We share the same sense of humor and can both be quite technical when it comes to details. My dad is one of my favorite people in the world!

My Mom
I am her second child. I'm pretty sure I am to blame for her always being so tired! She had me late in life, but I kept her on her toes between teeball, softball, basketball, soccer, girl scouts, dance, and the list goes on. She doesn't understand a thing about sports, but she was always there cheering me on. I was always mortified by this! Looking back now, I understand and appreciate it so much because a lot of other kids never had anyone cheering for them. Until about a year ago, I thought my mom just didn't like me. I would come home after school and there would be a list of chores waiting for me. This may be why I hate cleaning now! I began my rebellion at the age of 8. I didn't wear a dress or skirt for a few years, and I most certainly have not worn any bows since! But I don't purposely dress down anymore. I have made her life interesting!

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 3

I don't remember loving anyone other than Matthew. I have only dated a handful of people and not one of those relationships lasted longer than two months. I don't remember loving any of them. One had been a great friend of mine before we dated, but that whole relationship revealed a lot of truth about him and how he had been hiding who he really was for years. The others just seemed like friends.

And don't think that I dated all of those people back to back. This was spread out over a six year period. And at two months each, that's not even a year total. I thought I would never find a husband and who would want me? Obviously nobody else did.

At that time, I lived an hour away at school in an apartment by myself. I was lonely. I rarely heard from my friends, and I felt like nobody cared about me or even liked me. I remember praying, a lot, and asking God to please send me a friend, just one friend, just one person who had things in common with me and would like me for me. And out of nowhere, Matthew was brought into my life. Matthew has always said that he prayed for so long for God to bring him the woman he was to marry. It's so strange how it always comes together in God's hands!

So my first real love is Matthew. And I wouldn't change that for anything!

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 2

There isn't really a meaning behind the blog name. It's just my new last name! And I have officially changed my name one everything, except for 2 things. It's not fun changing your name. It's kind of a hassle. I can't believe it's not easier considering how many thousands, if not millions, of people change their names every year!

But I figured this would be the best name for our blog because it's about us and what we are doing. Simple enough.

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 1

My name is Morgan. I am 22 years old and got married in June! I work full-time and attend school full-time. I attend a community college studying medical transcription and a university studying international business. I am hoping to finish in May 2011! I have lived in North Carolina my entire life. I love to travel and cannot wait to go on another trip!

15 Interesting Facts
1. I have two hitch-hiker's thumbs and I prefer to stand with my knees bent backwards instead of the normal forwards. And by prefer, I mean I can't figure out how to stand the normal way.
2. I named my first dog Miss Bambi (insert last name) so that she would have the same initials as me!
3. I named my second dog Cinnamon Raisin because it was funny with my last name.
4. I love anything pumpkin or sweet potato!
5. If I eat something sweet, I have to eat something salty to counteract the sweetness. And vice versa. I like to have a balance of flavors.
6. My favorite time to drink chocolate milk is right before bed. And the spoon must be in the glass the entire time in case some chocolate were to settle at the bottom.
7. Despite me saying since I was 5 years old that I would never marry, I secretly wanted to be married by the time I was 23. I never expected it to actually happen though!
8. I love to decorate and anything relating to decorating such as HGTV!
9. I used to be a huge Duke Blue Devils basketball fan, but I've kind of lost that passion for basketball. Sometimes I wish I had it back.
10. I think it's weird that I a lot of the shows I enjoy watching are ones that involve people dying. (CSI, Criminal Minds, The First 48, etc.)
11. I can't use Dove body wash because the scent reminds me of my late grandmother.
12. I am an avid couponer, and I may have become too cheap!
13. My mom's macaroni and cheese is the best.. ever!
14. I really don't like feet or anything relating to them. If I can take my shoes off, I will.
15. I think an open field is the most beautiful thing ever. Especially if there's a cow or two thrown in there.

Finances.. Or the Lack Thereof!

I am so excited about this weekend! Dave Ramsey is speaking at the RBC Center! They had a few tickets on Groupon yesterday for half price, so of course I snagged a couple for us!

Matthew and I are both young. I work full-time. Matthew is considered part-time but usually gets about 35 hours a week. We make above minimum wage, but not much more. And we are paid hourly and not salary. I bought a house last year, which has been great now that we are married. At times, I feel that it is a lot more expensive than renting, but I honestly know that in the long run it will be cheaper than renting. I also attend school full-time through a community college and part-time through a university. I have a large amount of loans! My dad owns my car and therefore pays for the insurance and for the gas. Matthew's grandpa paid for his car when it was purchased. We recently added his car to our insurance policy to receive the discount on the home insurance, but his grandpa is giving us the money to cover the cost of the car insurance. This really saves us a lot of money by not having to cover these costs!

We are basically living paycheck to paycheck. And I can't stand it! I love to save money and have a budget that I can stick to. But it's hard to have a budget when your pay is not consistent and your expenses come quite close to making all of your money disappear. And every time we get ahead, something comes up and then we are back where we started. We have no savings, so there is no emergency fund. All of our extra money is spent on eating out and shopping. We have been fixing up our house, so a lot of money has been going to those final touches.

In our marriage, I am the one who handles the finances. Matthew likes to spend. I like to save. And sometimes I like to spend. I have control of the money. Matthew does not realize how much things cost and how high our expenses are compared to our income. I of course worry constantly.

I'm excited to hear Dave Ramsey speak! I really hope that we walk away from this being able to create a working budget (that actually works for us and not against us!). I hope that Matthew really understands how much money we have coming in and how much we have going out. I want him to realize that cooking at home vs. eating out (even the same meal) can save so much! I hope that we can sit down and talk about our finances without me getting stressed out and Matthew getting mad. I hope that we come to have a mutual understanding of where we are and where we could be!

Weight Update

As of today, I have lost 5 pounds total! I know that doesn't seem like a lot, but this is progress for me!

I need to start back on the 30 Day Shred. But I did go to Planet Fitness last night and workout with my cousin (also named Matthew)!

And I ordered Solo Slim! I have heard nothing but good things about it, so a co-worker of mine as well as my sister all went in on an order! I can't wait to start using it!

The Air Is Cool...

...And the days are getting shorter.

We have changed out the comforter on our bed for the cooler weather we've been having. There have been a few days that I have completely turned the AC off at home. Now, I like it being very cool in my house so if I turn the air off, that's a big deal! I am loving this weather! The last couple of days it has gone back into the 80's, but the 70's will be back tomorrow and last through the weekend!

But I do not like the days getting shorter. At all! When I get off work and head straight home, I usually take Cinnamon out and start dinner. By the time Matthew gets there and we eat, it's dark outside. And that makes me so sleepy! On days that I go to class after work, it's dark before I leave school. Talk about depressing! I feel like I've been robbed of a proper day! This morning I woke up to my bedroom being completely dark. I of course had to look outside and see what was going on. My first thoughts are always nuclear attack and then rain haha. Those are the only things that come to mind when I think of darkness. Weird, I know! Anyway, it was pitch black outside and it was cool and I just wanted to curl up in my bed. So I did.. but only for thirty more minutes.

I can deal with it being dark after work, but before? Puhlease let me have at least a few minutes of daylight!

Hot Dogs and Rice

On a scale of 1-10, how disgusting does that sound?

Yea, I'm thinking at least a 15!

About three or four weeks back, I made a 6 week long meal plan to use up things we already had at home. For last night, the menu said we were having hot dogs. I had hot dogs, but I did not have any buns for them. Matthew decided he wanted hot dogs and rice. I had never heard of such a thing and was grossed out by the idea of combining hot dogs and rice together. He explained that you cut up the hot dogs, fry them until slightly crispy, and combine with cooked rice and tomato sauce. Blah!

We both got home at the same time and I did not want to make that food. So Matthew cooked. And let me tell you that it was actually not that bad! I mean, I won't be begging him to cook hot dogs and rice. And I won't be craving it! But if Matthew wants it again one day, I could eat it and be satisfied.

So give it a try! Just don't tell anyone what it's called or what's in it!

Thank Goodness It's Over!

I could not be more happy that this was a 3 day weekend! Yay for Columbus Day and it being a federal holiday!

Remember how I said we were throwing a bridal shower for my sister and her fiance? Well we worked our little tails off all last week to get ready for this (hence the lack of posts!). Matthew's list was a mile long. Yes, I gave it to him 8 weeks ago. I specifically remember saying, "You have 8 weeks to finish this list!". And yes, he waited until about 2 weeks before to actually get started on said list. I don't even remember everything we did this week, but I will try my best to let you see how busy we were.

Monday: I was supposed to be at work at 8:30, and I got there at 9. I woke up when I should have been leaving for work. Bad start to the day! I did not take a lunch break, and I left at 3:30. I had a ton of reports to type at school, so I was there until about 6 p.m. I just remember rushing home, rushing to TJ Maxx and Ollie's, rushing back home, and eventually making it to bed.

Tuesday: I worked again all day. I don't remember much else. I am sure I was doing homework afterwards, but I honestly have no clue.

Wednesday: After work, my parents came over and helped hang all of the pictures around the house. That took a while but everything turned out great!

Thursday: I worked again. Shocker, huh? We cleaned a lot of stuff Thursday night. A whole lot.

Friday: After getting off work, I came home and ate some dinner so when Matthew got home we could get right to work. We also ran to Target for a few grocery deals! After that, I got online and found all the pictures I wanted to print for the empty frames and submitted my order to Walgreens. We went to bed at 2 a.m. Honest!

Saturday: I woke up at 7:30 and couldn't go back to sleep. Okay I dozed back off for another 45 minutes. Matthew went and dropped off our cleaning and picked up the photos while I got ready. Then we went to the pumpkin farm and picked out some beautiful pumpkins! We stopped at Rite Aid, Walmart, and CVS before heading back home. We started cleaning furiously again! Matthew left to drop Cinnamon at his parents', pick up the cleaning, and go to the other Walmart for something. I was already yawning and it was only 3 p.m. I then painted my pumpkins so they'd be super cute! Sometime around 4 p.m. I started panicking because my mom had yet to arrive and the shower was starting at 5 p.m. She made all of the food. There was reason to worry!

The shower was perfect! Everyone loved our house. There was no sign of junk or piles of stuff anywhere! It was all strategically placed in a single closet! I'm adding that to my To Do List. ha! We had a lot of fun and were glad that so many people could come! I hope everyone enjoyed the shower as much as we did, and I'm sure Shannon and Jeff would say thanks, too!

P.S. I'm never throwing another shower.
P.S.S. Unless I have a maid.

30 Days of Truth - Day 4

Something I have to forgive someone for is... I have to forgive Matthew for the past.

Before Matthew and I ever dated, Matthew did some things that I did not and do not agree with. I initially met Matthew when I was 16 and he was 18. I knew what kind of person he was and who his friends were, and I knew that I didn't like the things they did. When we met again, Matthew still participated in these activities. I was on a two week trip to Wyoming and as we began talking on the phone, I don't remember ever saying anything about the things he did. But by the time I came back from my trip, Matthew had stopped what he was doing. By his own will, he chose to stop! And I was impressed by him as a person for making that decision on his own and actually following through with it. But there have been a couple of hurdles since this time that have led to my need to forgive Matthew of his past.

Matthew was raised in a Christian home, but he had gotten in with the wrong crowd and had been negatively influenced since middle school. I am in no way saying that he did not have a choice, because I believe that he did. However, I do believe that the environment in which you live, work, and play makes a big impact as well! I went to a Christian school since first grade and had attended a church for preschool and kindergarten. My family did not go to church every Sunday or even on a regular basis. But I most definitely had the Word of God instilled in me, and I continue to carry it with me every day. I did not have to face the challenges of peer pressure to drink or do drugs. Those things did not exist in my world! And because of that, I cannot say that it is easy to say no. I have no idea how hard it would be to say no to a group of friends pressuring you to do those things.

Although Matthew has matured since then and become independent (for the most part) of his friends, I can't help but fear that he will have a lapse of judgement. And I often find myself worried about what he is doing when he is visiting friends. I so badly want to trust him more than 100%, but with those couple of hurdles sticking out in my mind, I am finding it very hard to believe everything he tells me. This is my husband and best friend. I never thought that I would have this problem! I have been lifting this up in prayer on a daily basis, if not several times a day. I really have to forgive Matthew for his past and trust that he is the changed man I know he is.

30 Days of Truth - Day 3

Something I have to forgive myself for is making the decision to do school the non-traditional way.

I went to a private, Christian school for grades 1-12. I never knew anything other than that, and so it was very normal. The school had about 300 people total. It was pretty small. I had most of the same people in my class the entire time, and we were the biggest graduating class up to that point. 30 people graduated in 2006. I applied to several colleges and decided on North Carolina State University. I don't remember what made me choose that school over the others, but I lived in a dorm (technically off-campus and much nicer than the on-campus dorms) where 6 other people from my high school were also staying. I was in a suite with the other two girls.

I had been at school for about a month when my PaPa suffered a stroke and he passed two months later. I basically fell into a deep depression and stopped attending school without telling my family. I started over the next semester but it just didn't feel right. After the summer semester, I decided to do class online through Liberty University and to take filler courses at the local community college until I could eventually transfer to be back in regular courses at Liberty. I moved to Liberty in August 2008 with all intentions of staying on-campus for a semester, getting an apartment in the spring, and graduating a year after that. I was about three days into my stay when I decided to come home for the rest of the week. Although I had a lot of rules to follow at my high school, after being at NC State for that time and being on my own, rules were the last thing I wanted. Upon moving into the dorm at Liberty, I knew there were strict rules. But this was the week before school, and I had no clue there were required events for me to attend since I was technically a "new" student, despite the fact I'd been taking online classes for a couple of semesters. I wanted to sleep in and had no reason to attend these events. After all of the girls were throwing pillows at me and trying to wake me up, I was done. While everyone was gone, I packed my bags and I left. I went back a couple of days later with Matthew to get all of my things.

I have been doing online courses through Liberty ever since. I am not motivated to do them at all. Last summer, I started taking courses for Medical Transcription at the local community college, and I LOVE IT! I have to attend classes, but they are still at my own pace. But having to show up keeps me accountable for my work. I love what I am learning, I love the pace, and the fulfillment I get from it. But I don't get that from my schooling at Liberty. I know that it's a bachelor's degree and I need it and should want it, but I just don't have that desire for it.

I wish that I had stayed in school at NC State. I would have been done with school close to 2 years ago (because I had transferred enough college credits before starting there). And I can't help but think, where would I be now if I had stayed? What kind of job would I have? And would I have friends? Would I be more social and willing to go out and do things? Would I have a sense of pride that I accomplished something?

I have to forgive myself for making that decision, because deep down I believe that I did what was right for me at that point in my life. And I am proud of where I am now, married, own a house, etc. But I just worry that I have disappointed my family. And I sure haven't had much of a relationship with any of my friends since then. I wonder if they hold that against me. I hope not.

The Weekend is Flying By!

I had so many plans for this weekend, goals to accomplish, things to do! And I feel as if I've gotten nowhere!

Clean out bathroom cabinets - Done!
Move bathroom related products from stock closet to bathroom cabinets - Done! And now I have more space in my closet! And no more running to the closet when I realize I have no shampoo in the shower!
Buy stuff for all of my fall craft ideas - Done! (except for black burlap.. but I have to wait for the store to get some!)
Print coupons - Definitely need to do this.
Grocery Shop - Definitely need to do this, too. But not until I print coupons.
Homework - Due today! I haven't even started yet!
Shop for bedroom decor - I have ideas! And I remember where I saw things I want! I just need to get them!
Get pictures printed so I can frame them before the shower next weekend! - This will have to wait until after work one day.
Exercise - I will get to this today! I have missed two days and I refuse to miss another!

Why must the week drag on and the weekends speed past? I need more weekend time!
