Weekly Wishes #29

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a relaxing weekend celebrating your papa's, papa figures, and life in general. 

Before I get started, can I brag about this guy ^ for a bit? We're getting married in the Catholic church because I've grown up Catholic and it's always been both mine and my parents dream that I'd have a big religious ceremony. Honestly, I just always assumed whoever I dated would just automatically be Catholic, but that's never been the case. Anyway, either the bride or groom have to be Catholic in order to get married in the church, but not both necessarily. Regardless of knowing this, Andrew decided to begin a year long class to become a Catholic so we can raise our family in this faith. Every Saturday morning while I sleep in like a lazy human, Andrew drives himself to church and sits through a 2 hour class...for me, for us, for our children who haven't even been created yet. Yesterday he was welcomed into the church during Mass, and I am incredibly proud and thankful of his commitment towards our marriage and family. Thank you for being you, Andy bear, I can't wait to be your wife and continue growing in our faith together.

Any who *insert clever transition here*...I had a pretty horrible week last week. My medicine is taking a serious toll on me these days and I've been in a lot of pain. Like, more than usual. I spent a good chunk of my weekend icing my poor boob-oo-lah (the real medical term for breast...) and just chilling out. Aside from physically being in pain, I've been nauseous all day, every single day. It's unbearable and I'm counting down the minutes seconds till I finish this round of treatment. Sigh. I'm not trying to be a debbie downer over here, it's just my life right now, and that's okay. I really got very little done last week, and that's okay too.

1. Go to a coffee shop and blog. 
2. Make/send out our engagement party invites.
3. Run every day.
4. Set a bed time for myself.
5. Go to the beach.
6. Make some lemonade.
7. Visit a few vintage stores for some cute teacups for our blogger tea party!

Womp, womp. This week I'd like to focus on getting the rest that I need, when I need it, and not beating myself up about it. I also want to commit myself to wholeheartedly enjoying moments spent with friends and family when I'm not feeling sick. I've got this awful habit when I have my bad medicine weeks where I feel like everything in my life is just so horrible and wrong. It's not. I'm incredibly lucky to have this life and the people in it, even when I can't walk around throwing glitter everywhere and having fun. I've got no "real" goals this week, because all I want to do is focus on appreciating all the little things that I often let go unnoticed. Watching Duke's little belly go up and down when he's sleeping on his back, Andrew patiently keeping me company all day even when I spend most of it getting sick or asleep, binge watching Friends when I can't get out of bed, the natural light that hits my room perfectly for photos at a certain time of day, such simple things can be really satisfying, if I decide to focus on that instead of the negative.

So, cheers to a better week loving where I am in this very moment.
