When you are younger all you want to do is grow up. But when you grow up there are decisions to make, hardships to face, and people to please.
One of the hardest decisions I have had to face as an adult is lunch.
Think about how easy lunch was when we were younger. Our lunch was either packed for us and so kindly deliver to the lunch room for us or we were able to select a scrumptious meal courtesy of the school cafeteria.
Yes I am in the small percentage of about .2% of kids that like the cafeteria food.
I am just about the least pickiest person you will ever meet.
But now that I am a boring adult I do not have the luxury of somebody packing my lunch, or a tasty cafeteria with a yummy new meal everyday.
I have to figure it out for myself, and it is hard.
Now bringing my own lunch to work seems like such a small "problem" to have in life, and in fact it is a small "problem". But even small problems matter people!
First of all there is the problem of remembering to pack your lunch.
Most days I am running out of the house as fast as I can trying to make it to work only 15 minutes late and not 30 minutes last. Packing my lunch is not on the top of my mind.
Second of all there is the problem of not knowing what to pack.
What do you bring for lunch? A sandwich seems like the typical thing to bring but after eating a sandwich for lunch for more than 3 days in a row I start to gag with the mere through of a sandwich.
I am ashamed to admit that a lot of days I end up going out and grabbing something fast. Usually Chick Fila or Subway. I HATE spending money on this, but its usually what I end up doing.
Does anybody else have problems coming up with something other than a sandwich to eat for lunch? Anybody have any good lunch ideas?
I really don't want to spend money eating out everyday, but I also need some creative ideas of what to pack for lunch.
It seems like such a small issue, but everyday around 11:30 I start to have a panic attack about what to eat.
I miss the school cafeteria. Turkey Ala King was my fav.
I do have a little disclaimer: I wasn't as good at taking pictures during the second year of marriage as I was the first. Sad day. Some of these are pretty bad pics. But it's all apart of life right?
At a Sugarland and Keith Urban concert. We aren't big fans of either bands but his parents had some extra tickets and we will never pass up anything FREE. I'm pretty sure Luke played risk on his phone the whole time.September:
At our friend Tambra's wedding. It was such a beautiful night.October:
Another wedding. This is a bad picture but its my only one from October.
Thanksgiving at my Uncle's house. Luke is squeezing me extra tight just because he loves me THAT much, not because he was sick of taking pictures.
Four-wheeling on Christmas day. Please don't be jealous of our cover-alls.
Spending time with my family. This is the ONLY picture I have of us together from January. There is an extra little guy in the picture. That's our nephew.
This was either for Valentine's Day or Luke's birthday. I'm sure I could look back on the blog and see but it's not that important.
This month we bought a house!! Praise the Lord! Standing on the front porch of our new house.
This was after Luke's band played a show. I'm always such a good little groupie.
This was on Mother's day.
Spending time at the lake in Branson with Luke's family. We had a lot of fun!
P.S. Our anniversary isn't until the end of July, this was just a fun early review!
