Life lately..

Life lately has been every bit of crazy. Nursing school started at the end of august and it feels like we have not stopped since then. Today was D and I's first day off from everything together where we had absolutely nothing planned and it was so nice (: I got up this morning and went with a friend running, starting out we didn't set a goal or discuss how far we wanted to run instead we just took off. We did 4.6miles the most either of us have done before (: Neither of have ran in over a month, its crazy to see what you can do when you put your mind to it.
In other news this has been our life lately....
We got another lab (: she is so sweet and well mannered
we FINALLLY got our floors done and baseboards back on (:
It was my newphew's birthday yesterday so we spent some quality time together before his party...

Hopefully within a few weeks I will have a schedule down and get back to blogging land (:

Dating Ideas (Guest Post)

Happy Labor Day! Today Elizabeth from Get Busy Living is posting for me...Go check her out!

Hello! It's great to be guest blogging on Chancy's blog today.  My name is Elizabeth and I blog over at Get Busy Living.  Whether you are a newlywed or a little more seasoned in the marriage realm, I wanted to cover something that all married couples can relate to.  My husband and I have been married for five years. Although that does not seem like a lot of time, we have been an item for 12 years now! During our dating days, I remember making sweet sentiments for him and would go on dates every single weekend. Now are the days of chasing a toddler, being stuck in a rut when it comes to spending time together, and life just seems to take over.  Who has time to focus on dating?  Many couples will say that date nights as a married couple have gone out the window.  Good news is that it does not have to be that way!  

My top favorite sites to get dating ideas from are The Dating DivasThe Dating Divas and my personal Pinterest "Dating Your Spouse" Board.

5 Reasons to Date your Spouse:

1. Make it a Priority

Taking the time to schedule date nights often is important in a marriage.  Whether it is just a night at home or a fun night out...make sure to put it on the calendar!  I am the type that if it does not get scribbled on the calendar then it never happens. 

2. Routine is a Killer

Going through the motions of everyday life can get dull and boringMost days consist of working, caring for our child, running errands, and making dinner--the typical routine.  Spice things up and let your spouse know that spontaneity can be fun.  Gotta spice things up in order not to become roommates in the house.

3.  Good Model for the Kids

 Growing up, I did not see much affection between my parents. There was one time I saw them holding hands and was in shock!  Parents hold hands?  Parents kiss?  It seemed abnormal to me at the time because it was not part of my childhood growing up.  My husband and I make a point in showing affection towards one another, and want our child/future children to see an example of how much their parents love each other. 

4.  It's Cheaper than Couples Counseling!

This one makes me chuckle because it's so true!   

5.  It's Fun!

It's a blast to spice things up and look forward to a date!  It brings back memories of dating before marriage.  There are tons of fun things you can do besides the typical movie and dinner date night (although those are fun too!).  Make it special.   

It's not about quantity and how many times 
you can go on dates, but the quality you put into it.

Confessional Friday

 I am linking up with Leslie from A Blonde Ambition for Confessional Friday (; the topic is how I would spend my most perfect day.....ahhh can a girl dream of a perfect day or what! 

These days I have been so tired so to start I would actually sleep in (its unheard of here lately) and then get breakfast in bed. Probably those pancakes that Kaitlyn put up yesterday would be great. My house would be magically all clean, so I would want to go shopping. I love shopping. So off to Waco for some new clothes, makeup and of course things for our home. I would spend the evening with my hubby at our favorite mexican restaurant On the Border enjoying a nice margarita and some sopaillas.  We are pretty simple people and this day may sound like a normally day to some but our life for the last year has been completely insane and nothing short of extraordinary all at the same time. When I think of my most perfect day it always includes the ones I love (:

Y'all have a blessed weekend!

Pumpkins and Campfires

Y'all I am just so excited for FALL...I guess this year is extra special because this will be our first fall in our home and I truly can not wait to decorate it. It has always been a favorite time of year for me, probably because I secretly LOVE to decorate. Today I am going to share a few of my favorite fall recipes (from Pinterest of course) and DIY projects from blogs (:

I actually pinned this , this morning but everything is already on my grocery list (:
This is a FREE printable from eighteen25 Girls they have a few color options to choose from and if you search their blog there are lots of free printables and DIY stuff. 

This looks sooo yummy. We always need something to take for a get together or to a kids school party and Keri has the recipe.

 I also have this wallpaper from my phone (; Just email it to yourself and save it as your wall paper
Also came from eighteen25 Girls and there is another one for halloween (:

P.S Have a blessed day!
