Long over due life update

Categories: Present Family, Present Friends, Future Family, Life Update

Well, it has been a really long time since I have written any of my dreams. I have had so many in the past couple of months that I can’t remember much of any of them. With life being as busy as it has been it is easy to just get on with your day and forget about the dream you had last night. I of course regret not making the time to record my dreams and hope to do better in the future. I know, I know, I said that last life update… but I really do mean well and hope to try harder. I have decided that I will be categorizing my dreams and trying to be more organized. In the future I will only have one picture per category so you will know by the picture which category my dream falls under. This really won’t make much of a difference for you as the reader but it will help me out a lot. Before I was trying to take a unique picture for each dream and that was deterring me from posting because I would have to go out and take a picture of something that would somehow connect to the dream. Basically I did not have the time to do such extensive planning for each dream post. I am still trying to figure out which categories to use and which pictures to match but rest assured I will get there.

So if you are wondering what my life update is… here goes. My husband and I, along with our friends (a married couple my husband and I are really good friends with) and my brother in law, worked on a project as a team and were chosen as 1 of 10 semi-finalists in America to be sent to China, all expenses paid, to compete with 60 other teams from China for cash prizes. This has literally taken up our entire life but it has been so cool developing the project and preparing for China. We are all excited to get this experience and to hopefully see the Great Wall of China. So that was a bit of a surprise in my life. Further more I worked on a self watering project for my plants to keep them alive while we are gone in China for a week in August and then for when we are gone in Europe, we will spend a couple weeks in September.

So A dream I had last night… Well I had several but this is the one I remember most and not the first dream involving twin baby boys.

My Dream:

I was on a school bus with a whole bunch of kids and adults. I do not where we were going but we happened to be going by my mothers house. The bus was really loud and I remember looking down and I had twin baby boys in my arms and they had soiled their pants. They must have been about 12-14 months old because they could walk but not very well and they were not really running around toddlers. They just looked about 12-14 months old I guess… Anyways, they had soiled their pants and I had to do something about it. Thankfully as I said above we were going past my mothers house. I convinced the bust driver to stop and I took the boys inside. We went into my middle sisters old room and changed them. They were much happier after the change and we went on our way.

Life Update

An update on my life and why I haven’t been posting my dreams.

The last couple of months have kept my pretty busy. I started a photography business, an etsy.com shop, and planned a trip to Spain, then when on that trip to Spain. Its not like my crazy dreams stopped. I just stopped having time to record them, or by the time I did, I didn’t remember enough of the details for it to be worth writing down. But I am ok with letting a few dreams slip past when I am living my dreams out in real life. Also I found a recipe for Honey Oatmeal Bread. The best home made bread ever!!! I am addicted.

Update on my trips to Europe. My husband and I have been saving and thinking about where to go in the world for a traveling adventure. We picked Spain. We found cheap flights for September of 2017. Although the flights were to Paris, we didn’t care. It was close enough for us so we booked them. We did this late on a Friday night, for some reason my whole family was awake and by 1 am my husband had convinced my sisters to join us. My sisters and I all pitched in to buy my mother a ticket as well, it was a surprise (Yes she knows, we told her the next day). We were all excited for our trip in about 6 months. A couple weeks later my husband learned about another cheap deal to Spain, but this trip would have to happen in 2 weeks time.

Before I continue, my husband had subscribed to Scott’s Cheap Flights. If you are looking for cheap international tickets it is worth looking into! They email you a list every day or so with really cheap flights all over the world. The kicker, you might just book a trip because you can… It is very tempting.

Back to the story. Scott’s cheap flights had found round trip tickets to Spain for $325 each! How do you say no to a trip to Europe for that cheap???? Apparently you can’t. We booked them and left 2 weeks later. We never thought we would be booking and planning a trip in under 2 weeks, but we did it and it was great! In fact we picked the first trip for 6 months out because we didn’t feel “ready” to just pick up and run away… I guess we were more ready than we thought. We are still going to Europe in September but will probably spend much more time in other places since we just did a week in Spain. We will probably do a few days in a few different countries, like Germany, France, Switzerland, and Italy.
