Just had to today. Definitely missing Seattle a tiny bit more today after seeing this.
This girl is certainly a happy, happy Coug fan on Apple Cup 2012!
I nearly paced a hole into my floor, probably gave my neighbors several heart attacks – along with myself for that matter, and nearly stopped breathing several times. I forgot how much I absolutely LOVE college football, especially the Cougs, especially on Apple Cup weekend. Nothing matters in a rivalry game. One team could be undefeated, but that wouldn’t matter. Rivalry games are not just like any other game in my opinion. They are something special and it truly does often times come right down to a final play. I am ALWAYS proud to be a Coug and will rock crimson and gray proudly until the day I die, but today my love is just a bit stronger and I am just a little prouder. Today we won the day for crimson and gray!
Go Cougs and xoxo,
I have a lot on my heart and mind and so much to recap from my fun weekend in NOLA, but that is just all going to have to wait, because today, today my Bobsey twin is finishing up her first year of Nursing School!
That deserves a bit of blog love I feel.
I couldn’t be prouder of how she has rocked it through her first year of school. There have been a million moments to be had, some wine to be consumed to help power through, challenges to be conquered, and of course there has been a lot of learning to be done – about herself, procedures, techniques, medical stuff, and what’s in her heart.
Bobs, I know this year has been perhaps one of the most challenging, if not the most challenging of your life, but as always, you have shown an incredible amount of grace, faith and poise in your pursuit to achieving your goal. I know that you feel like maybe you haven’t always had that grace, faith or poise, but I can tell you that from the outside you have been amazing and I am truly inspired. You can do this and I believe in you 150%!
Now go rock that last final, raise a glass to yourself, take a moment (or several!) to pat yourself on the back, and breathe – your first year is over! Onto Children’s – your dream is coming true!
Sure wishing I was there to celebrate with you!
Dreams come true, not free.
It’s funny. Homesickness or the ache to be around someone or something familiar. It’s funny how it comes and goes and when it chooses to come.
I am in a state of missing today. I have an ache in my chest that wasn’t there yesterday or the day before or even the day before that. That ache will slowly go away until the next time it decides to make an appearance, but until then, I will just power through it, like always.
Sigh. Yep, that’s right, it’s a sigh kind of moment and kind of day. Sorry to be a downer.
This girl is desperately wishing for some Cougar Crest Dedication wine. It is just so fabulous and since it is extra cozy outside today, I feel like curling up with a
glass, fine, fine at the very least two glasses, of it tonight.
They are up to Five!
Can anyone make this happen?! I mean who cares about the crazy MA liquor laws and shipping right??
I don’t know it it is the rain or the foggy haze outside lately, but I am feeling a bit homesick these days! Not like in a crippling type way, just a tiny little pang of wishing I was experiencing the spring in Seattle. Seeing all of my buddies. Seeing my family. Spending time at all of my favorite places. Eating at all my favorite restaurants. Being with people who know me, like really know me and my stories from before. Begging my mom to make lasagna for me. 🙂
I imagine this is on the normal side. I have finally kind of settled in a bit here. Life is moving along, my routine is in place for the most part. Which I suppose leaves more time to process everything and think about things. Still feel great about my decision to take this little leap of faith and make the life change, but I do miss home and all things familiar. I do however wake up every morning to the Seattle skyline on my wall so that is something I suppose.
Homesickness is a weird thing to me. Something that I think might always be present in some form no matter how long or how adjusted I get here or the next place that my life journey takes me…Texas visit anyone?! 😉 Like everything else, it is just one day at a time, one moment at a time, one large glass of wine at a time…
Love to you all!
