i. am.

A little over 1 year ago Bryan and I both sat down separately and completed the below statements. See here. I told him then that I wanted us to do this every year. I'm pretty sure he hoped I would forget. But I didn't forget. And after 1 month of bugging him, I successfully forced him to complete these statements. I want to track our growth, our life changes, our priorities, etc. with this...

Kate
I Am... full of wanderlust.

I Want... to know how the next year is going to unfold.

I Have... a big heart, according to my husband.

I Wish... that our house came with a back patio and fence.

I Hate... all of the troubles we’re having with my car.

I Fear... a lot right now.

I Hear... Bryan doing p90x upstairs.

I Search... for my next career move.

I Wonder... if my niece and nephew remember me.

I Regret... writing the words “it’s a must” to a particular person.

I Love... my dreamy husband, adorable dog, cozy house and healthy parents/in-laws.

I Ache... when I leave my dog for an hour, a day, a week and a month.

I Always... see the positive in every situation.

I Usually... want to go shopping for home decor instead of clothes these days.

I Am Not... a self centered person.

I Dance... with Cali all around the house.

I Sing… to annoy Bryan.

I Never... am fake. Yes, I really am that genuine. And yes, I really am that self deprecating.

I Rarely... have a hidden agenda.

I Cry... when I'm mad or frustrated or even when I'm just watching a commercial. I cry a lot.

I Am Not Always... able to say “You’re right. I’m wrong.”

I Lose... sleep, never.

I'm Confused... with how we’re going to realistically pull off the big plans that we have for 2012.

I Need... a magic ball.

I Should... thank the Lord everyday for all that He has blessed me with.


Bryan

I Am... a stress case.

I Want... a stable career.
I Have... the best wife and dog in the world.
I Wish... I had a backyard... ie. grass!
I Hate... that Cali barks at everyone she doesn't know.
I Fear... spiders above my head and snakes.
I Hear... what my wife has to say... sometimes.
I Search... for my nitch in life.
I Wonder... what my life would be like without the introduction of Pepsi MAX and Coke Zero.
I Regret... how I spent my college years.
I Love... my wife, family, dogs, friends and chicken.
I Ache... when I don’t workout.
I Always... need something to do.
I Usually... want more.
I Am Not... perfect... but close ;)
I Dance... at wedding’s when I have a few drinks in me.
I Sing... 3 to 4 words of a song then stop because I realize I don't know the words.
I Never... want to get old or die.
I Rarely... relax.
I Cry... with a good movie.
I Am Not Always... perfect, but almost.
I Lose... my temper when I lose at anything.
I'm Confused... easily.
I Need... my wife to keep me in line.
I Should... do more little things to show my wife how much I love her.

  7. So for one, I'm bummed to hear about your car situation. Two, it broke my heart to hear you talk about your niece and nephew. I hate that situation for you. Hard to make sense of that. Three, I am wondering who you are referring to when you say you regret saying "it's a must" to someone, though I'll probably never know. Love this idea!

  11. This seems like a really good little project to do with your spouse. I was just thinking yesterday, how I wonder if Kenny and I want different things in life. That thought really scares me. Kenny is so content with how our life is, but I am definitely looking for a better life for our children and for us.

  14. I read your new answers then old answers. So interesting! Some of the responses changed, while other stayed the same... which didn't surprise me for the ones that stayed the same. I think this is an awesome exercise. Maybe M and I will do this and a year from now to see if/how things change.

  31. This is SO sweet. LOVE it!

    On our wedding day, we had a "time capsule" where all our guest could put their two cents in, however we did something a little like this where we answered questions prior to the wedding day.

    I may steal this and start it everything - if it's okay? I love memories!

    Great post Kate, praying for your Momma♥
