Friday Confessional

Hi everyone! I apologize for being so distant and post-less lately. Work has been getting the best of me and in our rare moments of shared time off of work, I'd rather be spending time with my husband than blogging. No offense. :)

Anywho, just a little update (since I've been seriously slacking) Josh and I were supposed to be in Virginia Beach this weekend for another marriage retreat, but unfortunately Josh was assigned a last minute mission. Literally last minute. As in, we were packing our bags for the marriage retreat at 11:00 last night when he got the call. In short, I drove Joshua to work this morning at 0530, he got on a plane at 0730, and he'll be driving the troops for Spirit of America around in Florida until September 26th. :(

Which leads me to today's post...Today I'm linking up with Dandelion Wishes for the Friday Confessional!

I confess...
...that I started crying when Josh was put on the mission last night. We're finally in a really good groove in our marriage and we were super psyched about getting a free weekend away to strengthen our bond and meet new couples. Such is life.

I confess...
...that I'm going to use my hubby's 10 days away as an opportunity to get things done! I love Joshua, but I love him so much that having him around is sometimes a distraction from my other responsibilities. We get so little time with each other since I started my new job that, after a long day of work, all I want is to lounge on the couch with him. Now that he's gone for a little bit I can work on my body, blogging, reading a few books, putting some finishing touches on our apartment, and cooking more! 

I confess...
...that all I've done today is take Josh to work, unload and reload the dishwasher, finish the last 4 chapters of a book, put away 2 loads of laundry, and catch up on blogs.

I confess...
...that fall weather has me jumping for joy! The hubster and I took a walk together after work a few nights ago and it was a lovely 60 degrees and breezy. Perfect for skinny jeans and hoodies.

I confess...
...that I just mailed out thank you's from our vow renewal ceremony (April 10) YESTERDAY! Bad blogger and bad bride.  

I confess...
...that I can't wait to blog, blog, BLOG in the next week! I've been starting drafts and saving them so that when I have time I can finish and share them with you...but I just haven't done it yet! I've got so many recipes, honeymoon, wedding, and apartment things to share with you!

And last, but most certainly not least...

I confess...
...that I deeply appreciate my 20 followers who have stuck around even though I've not been posting as regularly as I used to. Thank you so much for reading!!!

Wow, that totally stinks that Josh had to leave for such a long time - and on such short notice.

Can't wait to read all of your new posts!!!
