Truth V. 3

I am back for round three of truths! :) Even if my posting is scarce during the weeks at least you get to know more about me on sundays. I just want to say thank you for following along with my blog, it means so much!

31. I guess you could call me seasoned traveler. I mentioned I love traveling but I've been to a couple different places. Mexico (3x), Belize, Spain (3x), Peru (3x),  Holland, Morocco, Brazil, and Colombia. That excludes my stateside my travels which are probably fewer. I think I've left a bit of my heart in each of these countries. I would really like to go back to each and keep growing my list. I can't wait to travel with kendall more and experience so many sights together. I think the next countries on my list are: Ghana, Libya, India, Romania, and Mali (in no particular order).

32.  My absolute favorite color is teal/turquoise. Basically any pretty blue. :) I realize lately that most of my wardrobe consists of all shades of blue and my house always leans to teal accents. So, I have tried to expound my color pallet lately. I have really fallen in love with mustard yellow, seafoam green, and coral.

I miss this bedroom. :(



33. My fashion style tend to lean towards bohemian and cheap. :) I really enjoy clothes but I don't have the budget. When I do buy clothes I feel so guilty because I know I have so much already. I haven't brought myself to purchase clothes since I've been home from Peru. I get really sleepy when I go shopping. I really just like to play around with changing up different pieces and accessories.

34. My dream is to own my own coffee shop. I have journal-ed dreams of color palettes and ideas. I always wanted to have a coffee shop like the Talon from Smallville. I doubt it will ever happen, but I will drink my coffee and wish.

35. I am a night owl. which would explain why I am still up at 1 am writing this post. Kendall always goes to bed super early, so it has been quite the adjustment in married life getting our sleep schedules to match up.

37. I dream up of all the expectations for myself for the day, then I feel like they don't happen. I over commit and think I can get things done and I don't. For instance, I'll wake up and be like I'm going to run and study before work, then after work I will finish this or that. More often than not I don't do everything I intend on doing. I need to work on that...

38. I love the beach. I could sit on a lounge chair, soak up the sun, and read a book all day while listening to the waves. Even though I love the beach, I can't stand the sandiness of it. I won't sit in the sand or play in but I certainly enjoy the atmosphere of the beach. I would go back to the place we took our honeymoon in a heartbeat.

39. I would rather be in the jungle. When we were in Peru this summer I could not get over how much it felt like home. Everything seemed so natural and I remember thinking..."I have always imagined I would live my life like this." I know it isn't for everyone, but having to wave down a moto cart to get groceries to start lunch at 10:00 in the morning after washing clothes by hand made for an  adventure everyday. My Indian and missionary friends are still there and I miss them so. They aren't just people I am going to "help", that isn't the case at all. They are my brothers and sisters whom I love and are dear to me. I consider it an honor to serve them.

40. I have a love/hate relationship with running. I have tried to like it.  It doesn't help me lose weight or get in shape even when I run consistently. I have ran a half marathon and I LOVED it. I had so much fun competing, but the running in training wasn't very fun... I am running a 10k Turkey Trot Thursday. I haven't ran in a while so I should probably make sure I can still do that. I am also starting CrossFit again, now this works.
