Love Languages

I just found something that I really needed to see, found it on Simple Mom‘s blog- here is the link to the article about love languages..Love Languages 

Here are MY results:

Love Language Scores:
9 Words of Affirmation
6 Quality Time
2 Receiving Gifts
5 Acts of Service
8 Physical Touch
Interpreting and Using Your Profile Score:
The highest score indicates your primary love language (the highest score is 12). It’s not uncommon to have two high scores, although one language does have a slight edge for most people. That just means two languages are important to you. The lower scores indicate those languages you seldom use to communicate love and which probably don’t affect you very much on an emotional level.

Words of Affirmation
Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important–hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.

Quality Time

In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.

Take the quiz and try for yourself; see what love languages are your strongest and maybe that will help others in your relationships. I have a feeling you’ll learn about yourself and maybe things interpersonally will become easier.

Moving, Baby Talk, School & American Idol

moving, baby talk, school and american idol

Welcome,

Today started off with a trip to Shari’s at 2 AM and we finally fell asleep around 3 or 4 AM. I woke up with my period and I instantly started to dread the day. We pretty much just stayed at home all day since Alex spent the night and had to get up and leave right away. I waited for my friend Amanda to come over, she was stuck in an interview so she didn’t get here until around 3 PM. When Amanda got here, we talked about her psycho ex. We had a great talk about work and then went to Big 5, Micheal’s then proceeded to go to WinCo and get her groceries for dinner. We had fun while she was with us and I really value her friendship and am glad she’ll be around more often.

Moving

About moving, well I thought I had a yes answer but after discussing it further with Sean we decided we should save and not splurge on a new fancy apartment before our lease is even up. We will move in June,July or whenever our lease is up. We decided not to be hasty and although I’m very impatient I need to cool my jets.

Baby Talk

The only one big thing on my mind lately is having a baby at some point in the near-distant future. But I’m also pretty emotional and hung up on missing my dad as well. The more I think about all of it, the more I go crazy. I think at this point I need to “forget” about it, for this second. We cannot afford it at this moment but how in a year or so maybe, we will be in a even better place. [This is NO one’s decision but ours, so I’d share but do NOT want to hear criticisms; I’ll pass thanks] I think I just needed to write that last part for myself… I’m anxious and slightly obsessed about it and it hasn’t even happened yet. Believe me; if I was already pregnant you’d all know already. But I swear if one more person tells me to wait, I will shank someone. It’s really annoying and non supportive. The truth hurts huh? No, my feelings are hurt now people- keep that to yourselves.

 School

Plus at this second I really at least need to finish school, I want to finish. I didn’t go this term because money got mixed up and it was kinda my fault but it won’t happen again. I am gonna bust my buns next term and maybe even transfer to do it online. Might give that a shot, but I haven’t quite decided. I want my psychology transfer degree, I want a good job and I want to start that section of my life.

American Idol

I watched the new season of American Idol and well, it was good in the first half and sucked the last half. We’ll see what this new season of determined singers brings. Two or three girls and one guy I thought were amazing so I hope they get far in the competition.

…the future

In March, things will pan out and become more stable, honestly it can’t come soon enough. Sean is going to try to get his permit/license this week or next. Then this will make it a lot easier for moving.  We have a car from his parents on hold OR a car in mind. It’s a Ford Escort, in decent shape and will do for awhile. What a great dependable car. I feel safe and love those cars now. I might try as well but I need some serious practice first.
That’s about it for now, I know that was a lot but man I feel lighter already.
Thanks for listening and tune in next time…Do you go to college? What are you studying? How do you deal with haters in your family or people telling you what to do? Advice?Signature

The Spauldings: One Year Anniversary

O n e  Y e a r  A n n i v e r s a r y

I cannot believe its been a year since we got married! I mean it’s more than a wonderful experience to be a wife, that title means so much more to me than anyone can ever imagine. This last year has had its ups and downs; but definitely after a year we know now exactly what we have to work on. And a better idea of how to fix those things that have been a constant barrier to us so far. We have grown more together in the two years of being together and one of being man and wife than I ever thought we could be. I will always and forever know deep in my heart that this man is for me and only me and will remain at my side for years to come.
We have been tested of our stance together a few times in different situations with friends of mine and we have always come to the same conclusion. We must stand beside each other and should agree in our opinions about any sort of problem at the time. Our families since then have also proved to be difficult but now I believe “Family isn’t always blood.” It is now with this new life motto concerning people I bring into my life-it’s just not always true. Family is important, don’t get me wrong, I need to learn to appreciate them more and never take them for granted.
As of a year ago today, we would have already done our rehearsal and have already been split up waiting for our arrival into the society as man and wife. The weather is the same it was just a year ago today, a wet, rainy and cold day in the Pacific Northwest. I just can’t believe it’s already been a year and it seems as though it went by too fast. It took us a year to hang pictures of our special day which now I smirk and grin every time I pass them in our halls. We have truly realized and tried to keep those who are our true friends and people who will only support us in our new journey.
Our helpers from our wedding- Janae and Alex- we still keep in touch although as time moves on we ar just not as close as we once were. Maybe time will change that. Alex was like a brother and has always been there for us and Janae did so much for me as well supporting me and helping me along the way. As for Angela, well, we have grown apart some but she insists that we are “fine” and not trying to fight anymore. I shall continue to stand beside him with all that I am. This year has been great and there are many more to come….. god bless…. thank you for finding me, saving me and making me the happiest woman ever!
I love you honey and I always will.
To us. CHEERS!
