Another Day, Another Daycare...

Today was an important day, Mom (I), went on a mission to find the perfect daycare for little Armani. After laying in bed watching a few hours of Wife Swap and chatting on Facebook with Hammy, I got up and headed out to Dee's Doggie Den. It's only about 15 minutes from where I'll be living but more like a half hour from where I am now in Irving so I decided Mani would have to forgo the trip. Thanks to the lovely Dallas traffic it took more like 45 minutes to get there but it was well worth it. The place is perfect! They even have pools outside for the dogs to swim in. And even better, it's cheaper than where I took Mani in Louisville! The woman who gave the tour was super sweet and it's a really nice place. Afterwards we went to this Mexican restaurant a few doors down and I got a bean burrito but I forgot how enormous the portions are so I did a pretty pitiful job of finishing it all. After the meal we checked out the 24 Hour Fitness center down the street for a little tour. I'm excited to try spinning and get back into yoga. I've gotten lazy after the marathon. Not as interesting of a day as some others but I'm still happy. Tomorrow I get my keys, move some junk into the apartment and get my hair done and then it's my first weekend!

  1. Sounds like you had productive day. I'm sure your glad that you have someplace for Armani during the day while you're at work. So you're going to be a veggie eater huh?? Good luck with that and Yoga is great for the body, soul and mind. Take Care
    Love Ya!

Year 30

Is this thing on? I've been struggling with a bit anxiety out of nowhere over the past year and a half so in an attempt to keep my head from spinning I'm going to try my return to writing.

I turned 30 in February and it's seriously been my best year. Suddenly I stopped caring so much about things, and more about *gasp* my family and friends. Weird right? But in caring more about people, I also started to care less about their opinions on my life choices. That said, I am going to provide you with a VERY brief rundown of the 3 major life events happening right now:


We are buying a house! Maybe... Yay right? Back in October I found this really great house under a lease option contract that we ended up snatching up. It's in a nice, established neighborhood where *most* people own and genuinely take care of their houses. Not at the Hank Hill lawn level but I'm talking seasonal outdoor decorations and it just happens to be the neighborhood other parents bring their kids t…

Burn the Past

One of my old pastors used to say "God gave you two ears and one mouth so you could listen twice as much". I've always been a pretty decent listener. I was always in the top 5 during games of Simon Says and with a mother like mine, you needed to do your best to prevent her repeating herself. But one area where I really struggle is listening to what God says to me and what direction to go in my life. I'm a control freak. There, I said it. There have been times in my life where I've had to schedule not only when I would have free time but what I would do during said free time. I've literally put "watch tv" on my calendar. So is it any surprise that when someone says to "let go and let God" I have trouble leaving my entire life and existence to someone other than myself? Not only that, but someone who isn't a someone at all? To someone I can't see, don't understand, don't know how to listen to and just have to have blind faith…

Guess Who's Back

Sometimes my thoughts get really overwhelming and when that happens I usually have to do something active and relatively creative. I've been using coloring books since before they were cool and strangely baking is still a big go-to for me but there's also writing. Today while lamenting to the husband he suggested I write a blog to try to just get shit out. So that's what I'm doing.

We are moving back to Louisville. Yay? I guess that's still TBD. I love Louisville, I really do and I have for years but like a weird, slightly dysfunctional, long term relationship, love just wasn't enough. I felt trapped and suffocated. I had created this identity box for myself and while it worked for a while it eventually turned into my coffin. It was tiny and I didn't feel like it could fit everything I wanted to be a part of my identity. 15 months ago I was exercise and non-profit worker Rennay. That's it. When we moved I realized it was a true clean slate. Absolutely n…
