today i...

Today I was on time for class... AGAIN! Whoop whoop! Go me.


Today I realized it was Thursday and I haven't had milk since Monday.


Today I bought milk.


Today I ate cold cereal for dinner just because I wanted to.



I ran out of cereal...


Today I also bought chocolate milk because sometimes you just need chocolate milk.


Today I bought ridiculously expensive shampoo and conditioner.



I needed the change...



I forgot to bring conditioner back with me on Monday so I used my roommates.



I asked...



And didn't feel bad because she used my toothpaste the first two weeks I lived here... and I didn't know about it. But I didn't care. I just laughed.


Today I felt a great love for the beautiful fall colors.


Today I painted my finger nails black.



It was exciting.



I'm not sure how I like it.



But I'm going to leave it for a day or two to get used to it.


Today I put my laundry away that has been sitting in two baskets on my floor since Monday.


Today I finally changed my blog template!!!! Yay!


Today I decided I want to be a better person.


Why?


Because I spent about 8 hours reading this blog








I had heard about this stay at home mom from a couple of my friends.



Apparently she was on the Today Show for her blog.



I found out why.










This woman is AMAZING!



I sat there at my computer and I could NOT stop reading. Stephanie and her husband, Christain were in a plane crash in August and are still recovering in the hospital. Her family and friends have been reposting some of their favortie blog posts. I read every single post back to December of last year and this girl blogs about every day! The only reason I had to stop was because I was getting off work. I was so moved. At times I was tearing up and other times laughing out loud. I've never seem someone so dedicated to her children, husband, and beliefs. She lives a beautiful life. I truly feel like I know her and my heart goes out to her and her family. She lives everyday with such grace, patience, and soaks up every moment with true love. I love the way she lives her life and am inspired to be like her. Today I'm going to be a better person and live a little more like Stephanie Nielson-- thank you for inspiring me.






Today was a good day.




I am happy today.
