the weekly: august 20th - 26th.




  S N A P S H O T S  

-  saturday mornings are my favorite. 
-  while unpacking, i found my grandma gracie's bible.
-  salted cream cold foam cold brew. it's legit, y'all.
-  i might be in love with our new appliances.



   M O M E N T S  +  H A P P E N I N G S    

-  jared finished up the trim work, and i am alllllmost finished unpacking the last few boxes!   

-  i made dinner while jackson played in the next room. these little moments are so delightful.

-  i worked late one night and didn't get home until 8:30. jackson greeted me with a huge smile, and i melted.

-  finished glass sword on audiobook. i'm just not very into this series like i thought i'd be.  

-  we had zero plans on friday night, and it was GLORIOUS.

-  my family came up on saturday. we celebrated my birthday early with shopping + dinner at rib crib.




   L E S S O N S   +  R E A L I Z A T I O N S   

-  sometimes i need to lay aside my pride (okay, all the time) and get the job done. i have been stubborn about some things at work, and it's benefiting no one- myself included.

-  i tried new shampoo + conditioner recently, but switched back to my favorites. i have never loved a shampoo scent more!  

-  i am an enneagram TWO. i have taken the free test more than five times, and i felt like i was getting mixed results, but the i realized that type two was always first or second on the list. i've been deep-diving all things enneagram, and it's fascinating. [does this mean i'm a true millennial now?] 

-  in case you're wondering my myers-briggs type, i'm an INFJ. it's supposedly only makes up 2% of the population, but a majority of my blogging friends are INFJs.

-  as great as personality tests are, they don't define me. i won't use them as a crutch for poor behavior. -but- it is fun to explore and use as a tool to better understand someone.

-  make sure to pick up any rogue toys because jared may trip over one as he's leaving for work at 4:30 in the morning, causing oneself to run through the house whisper-yelling BABE, BABE. what did i think i was going to accomplish by calling an intruder babe?

-  i was just about to give up on these weekly posts when i realized that i have come to loathe the monthly recaps. i always forget to update the post weekly so that i'm not sitting with a blank page on the last day of the month- when it dawned on me: why not just write a weekly recap? having my new agendio planner really helps because i use it as a planner/journal/memory keeper/catch-all.

i reflected on the year jared worked second shift



  P R E V I O U S L Y  on  W I L D B L O O M  

+  2017 - photos from my maternity leave  [i remember writing this post at work because i was trying to distract myself.]
