Never go to bed angry

Some of the best advice I ever received during our engagement or from wedding cards was: 
Never go to bed angry.

I never like to go to bed when I'm upset anyway, but last night that's all I wanted to do.
And if it wasn't for my amazing husband, I probably would have.
He forced me to talk about what was bothering me and by the end of the conversation, we were laughing. I'm so glad we talked everything out, because when I woke up this morning I wasn't upset or angry.

Last night got me thinking about how lucky I am.
I have Zach as my husband.
He pushes me beyond my limits because he knows I can do it.
He loves me for who I am, good, bad or ugly.
He makes me laugh on a daily basis.
He indulges me when I want to do a selfie.
And I love him beyond words.

The day we booked our venues for our wedding.
Zach is absolutely amazing and I thank God everyday for him.

Random Monday

Happy Monday!
I went to sleep last night to snow covering everything and woke up to the same thing, but plows have plowed our lots. 

I don't think we got more than a couple inches, but I'm glad I didn't have to be on my way to work at 7 this morning. With my later shift I don't have to be at work until 11, so hopefully the roads are fine when I leave, because I really do not like driving in bad weather! And I'm probably not the only one. 

Anyway, I'm not really sure where this post is going, but whatevs.
I hope you all have a great Monday, a great week, and if you have bad weather, stay safe!

Oh, Weekends

Who does weekend recaps on their blog? I do, that's who.
Who also had a good weekend? I did.

Friday night Zach and I hung out with our friend Bridgette and she convinced our friend Ted to hang out too!!
We went to Logan's for dinner, then came back and played games. 
Rockstar Life, anyone?
It was a fun night and we were up well past midnight.

Saturday I spent most of the day watching my brother kick butt on the wrestling mat.
He won 3rd place for his weight class and I got a sore butt from sitting on those bleachers all day.

Sunday was a lazy day.
I did laundry, cleaned up a little around the apartment, and watched a lot of movies.
I started the Insanity workout, but I was only able to get through the fit test.

And I got some practice on one of my goals for the year.
I'm not sure what it's going to be, but it's just nice to practice my crochet skills.

Today I start my new shift at work and I'm kind of excited about it. It's later in the day, but I don't care. I get to sleep in, and since Zach is a night owl, I get to spend more time with him.

How was your weekend?

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year my charming friends!!

And happy Friday!
I hope you all had a great holiday season!
Mine was wonderful. I got to spend a lot time with both my family and Zach's family.
Our Christmas card this year. I love it!
The best "Our First Christmas" ornament this year from my mom.

As we were ringing in the new year, I was thinking about the whole year. Looking back, 2014 was probably one of the greatest years of my life. I mean, I married the love of my life and I got a new job NOT in retail!
Happy New Year from The Moores!

And what's a new year without new goals and resolutions?
I know you're probably tired of reading about everyone's resolutions, but I like sharing them with you all, so here goes!
1. Pay off debt. I don't have a set number, but the way I see it any debt paid off is great.
2. Plump up our savings. We want to buy a house in the next year or two, and my friend and I are planning a trip to Disney World in the fall.
3. Become a better me. Just like every other lady out there, I am self conscious. I'm not a size 4, I'm not tall, my hair doesn't always lay right, etc. This year I am determined to become a better me for health and personal goals, but to be a happier me, also. I've slightly got back into the gym routine, and Zach has been borrowing the Insanity DVDs for me from the library, which I plan to start on Monday.
4. Go to Disney World. Right now, my friend and I are planning to go in November. but we haven't made any concrete plans or booked anything.
5. Enjoy being a newlywed. I already enjoy being a newlywed, but I still want to enjoy it for as long as I can. We already have weekend plans for our anniversary.
6. Learn to crochet. This was something I wanted to learn a couple years ago, but I never did, so this year I'm determined. I've even found things on Pinterest to help me and I've kind of started something the other night!

What are your goals and resolutions this year?
