“the best decisions i ever made” series

Friday.  Friday.  Gotta get down on Friday.  Something something for the weekend.  (I should probably learn those lines.)

But seriously.

You need to get down low on Fridays.  It’s really the only day of the week when it’s acceptable.


It’s also acceptable to dress like this….



Anyway, I’m so very thrilled that it’s nearly the weekend.  Travis had a hellacious schedule this week (1pm-10pm), which left us crossing paths…well…never, so I’m happy to have the next two days to spend with that guy.  We’ve got some work to do at the new house – painting, cleaning, etc.  If you haven’t noticed, I’ve all but given up on trying to update you on the progress.  Real quick – we hope to move in by the end of this month – we have one room to paint then the floor guys will come in and refinish all the hardwoods (should take 1 week), then new flooring in the kitchen (should take 1 day).  I pinky promise that after it’s finished, I’ll go in and take some “After” pictures!  Exciting!

Today, I have a request for you guys.  I need guest posts!  Over the next three months, I’ll be traveling quite a bit so I want to give this platform for anyone who wants it.  I’m creating a new series called, “The FIVE Best Decisions I Ever Made,” where the guest poster tells us all about his/her life through decisions they’ve made.  (You don’t necessarily have to provide 5 – just pick as many as you want.)


For instance, one of my best decisions would be going to UNC-Chapel Hill.  It’s where I met Travis, got a killer degree (that I don’t use – ha!), and where I overcame my eating disorder.  Like any posts, they should have pictures and be at least a little funny.

If you’d like to help me out and write a post, please email me at lindsayslist AT gmail DOT com.  You don’t have to be a blogger to submit a post!  There really is no deadline – I’ll post them when I get them (and as I need them).  Can’t wait to learn more about you through these posts!

HAPPY FRIDAY, friends!!  On Monday, I’ll have a “Back To Basics” post for you.

QUESTION:  What are your plans for the weekend?  Anything fun and exciting?

  1. I think about this topic a lot…how these decisions I have made in my life that seem impulsive or crazy to many people (even me) at the time, end up leading to other amazing events in my life…even if it takes months or years to recognize how all roads come together.

    Now I’ll be thinking about this all day…

  2. I have to email you. I was just talking to my dad about how transferring out of my dream school was the best thing I ever did. At the time I thought my life was over, but it’s really when everything fell into place.

  3. Yay for progress on the new home! I would love to guest post too. I have made some good decisions along the way and would love to share them (neglecting the not so good ones)…

  4. Gah. House work is SO stressful and always takes a million years longer than you think. I would like to say one of the “best decisions” posts I can share in the near future is that I convinced Peter to hire someone for the work we have to do on the side of our house. Man is convinced he can do it all himself. We’re talking taking down our (2 story high) deck, removing siding, rebuilding the framing that has water damage, putting back up siding, and rebuilding our deck. Yeahhhhh…..

  5. I’m doing a 10K tomorrow which is probably the farthest I’ve run since we did the half marathon last spring! And I’ll do a guest post for you. It sounds like a fun idea.

  6. i wish i could come help you move!! maybe james and i can. Let me know if you need a guest post. Even though i’ve already guest posted before. So glad you can spend time with the man. Praying for him. I know it’s a hard work schedule till april!
