Turns Out ... I'm Competitive Afterall

On this here space o' mine, I've always claimed to be the least competitive person alive. Well I may have accidentally lied. I say "accidentally" because it was not on purpose that I lied to y'all. I just completely forgot about two itty bitty things that I'm crazy competitive about.

1. My husband.
2. Country music.

Yes, in that order. I'll explain.
 Dress - Hazel & Olive
Side note: I about died when I saw this dress.
It was the most perfect thing I had ever laid
my eyes on and I had to make it mine. Adorbz.

When it comes to le husband, he is my main squeeze. And ain't nobody gettin' in between us. Therefore, my highly competitive -almost annoyingly competitive- side comes out when necessary. Although it's not related to being competitive, I like this verse from the bible: "Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord." (Ephesians 5:22). But really... I have an interesting story about meeting my husband & competitiveness. We'll save that for another blog post. 

Regarding country music, I didn't think I was all that competitive, but my hubby convinced me otherwise. I feel like I just lost a huge game (or something of that magnitude) if I cannot name the artist & song title of a country song when I hear it. It's intense. I need to find a way to make that into a monetary game of sorts. 

In other news, I am done with my Clomid for the month. I was to take it on days 3-7 of my cycle. Then, yesterday my husband gave me two shots at home. I about freaked out. But all ended up being fine. He deserves a temporary RN license. This Wednesday, I will check in with my fertility doc and see how many "mature" eggs I've got. Thennn, the exciting part: we get to actually have the IUI procedure. Say one more prayer for us. I'll be honest... I am feeling pretty darn confident. Especially because of Romans 8:28.

  1. That dress is definitely adorbz on you! You're rockin it! And it's a GREAT thing to be competitive about your husband and country music! They're pretty much the most important things to women! And if they're not, they totally should be. Just sayin'. Praying for your next step in having the IUI done! :)

  3. I used to be really, really, really competitive and then at some point I just decided I didn't care that much and gave up. But there is one guy I like to think I'm pretty competitive over. He's been in my life for almost eight years, so I've done everything I can to hang onto him. When a girl finds her man, there's no stopping her right??
