Week # 2 of May

So, I totally spaced on writing up about starting on week #2 but I definitely started it! If there is anything that I have no trouble focusing on, it is my marriage. I love being married and I love TJ more than anything in the world. I am always striving to better our relationship and making sure I am treating him the way I should be.

Anyway, here is what the goals for week two have been:

~ Respect him.
~ Offer to help him.
~ Know his love language.
~ Point out his strengths. (Be specific.)
~ Be his sexy wife.

I don’t want to go into as much detail about each of these points (especially the last one lol). These ones are things that you are going to have to think about the specifics for your husband. I feel like some of these are private things between me and TJ, kind of like our little secret. I know the ways to respect him and to love him in his love language, but I don’t want to share that with the internets. So, take a look at this list and think about your husband and how to best show him this. I have been working diligently on it this week and can’t wait to share about the next set of points to focus on here in a couple days.

On a side note, we had snow the last day or so. In May! What?! Why?! Then by Sunday it will be back up to 86 degrees. I’m telling you, Denver is crazy!

On another side note, I get to see Needtobreathe on Wednesday! I haven’t seen them since college around the time TJ and I started dating. That is a fairly long time! Considering before that, I was seeing them at least once a year. Lol.

Well, I’m off!

See ya!

April 27: A Song You Make Fun Of

This is the start of my three days off. (Not including a short little meeting I have tonight.) Unfortunately, all three days are kind of dreary. It rained this morning and has been super overcast and kind of chilly all day. It is supposed to stay like this for the next couple of days. Although, you know what that means? Plenty of reading time!!! I finished a book this morning and started on another one already. I also realized I was craving some potato soup, so I ran to the store and got the ingredients. Best decision I made today! It was so yummy!!! Tomorrow I should hopefully get some TJ time. And then who knows what Tuesday has in store for me!

April 27: A Song You Make Fun Of

Baby by Justin Bieber

Oh the Biebs…. That’s all I have to say about that… LOL!

See ya!

April 25 & 26

Yay! Only covering two songs and not like 3+! Lol! I will admit, not my favorite month challenge. I feel like I’m not sharing nearly as much. I really am just posting songs. Where as with the photo challenge, I was at least sharing life and sharing the moments that brought about those pictures! I am really excited about the month of May. It is the 30 Days to a Better Wife. I love my relationship with TJ. There are days when I don’t but I really do. And I am super excited to focus on being a better wife for him. 🙂

Anyway, back to April.

April 25: An Acoustic Song You Love

We Are Broken by Paramore

That is about as acoustic as I could come up with at the moment. I really like this song. 🙂

April 26: A Song By Your Favorite Band

Lay ‘Em Down by Needtobreathe

Can we just talk about how amazing this band is?! I love them lots. This song is also just amazing! Check them out if you have not already!

Well, I’m off to bed. It has been a long day and TJ has to get up early.

See ya!

April 22, 23, 24 :)

So, the past several days have been interesting. I think I pulled a muscle in my core. Not really sure how that happened but needless to say it has not been a good several days. Moving and breathing was super difficult. It is on the mend now, but keeping still for several days is not something Ashley is good at! Lol! I wanna get moving and do all kinds of stuff! Doing my stocking shift this morning was super humbling. I couldn’t lift anything real heavy. So, when it came to unloading the replenishment truck I had to step aside for most of it. I felt like such a nuisance for not being able to do much. Anyway, I did finish my truck long before my shift was actually over.

The weather has been amazing so that also has not helped because I want to be doing stuff outside! I had big plans this week to get out and be active almost every day this week. That obviously did not happen if breathing was difficult. Lol! But hopefully I can get out and do a little something tomorrow. 🙂

April 22: A Song that Would be a Theme Song to a TV Show About Your Life

I’m Taking You With Me by Relient K

Love this song 🙂 This was a hard prompt to answer Lol!

April 23: A Song that Makes You Angry

Someday My Prince Will Come by Snow White

I am a hopeless romantic. I will admit it. But, I have grown up a little (not wholly but a little lol) and I don’t know, I just have come to see reality. The whole Disney princess movement drives me nuts! Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Disney. But I do not want my future daughter to strive to be like a Disney princess or even come close to thinking that is reality. I want her to look up to skiers or climbers or mountain bikers. I want her to be strong and not waiting for her prince to come. Anyway, there is my mini rant lol.

April 24: A Cover Song

Someone Like You performed by Charlie Puth and Emily Luther

I love this girls voice. Maybe more than Adele. I love this cover! I found it and fell in love with it.

See ya!

April = Not My Best

Alright, so April has not been my best blogging month. I am realizing it is going to be harder to blog when the weather is so stinking nice outside!

April 21: A Song You Want to Dance to At Your Wedding

Alright, so I am already married. So, I was debating putting up the song I did dance to but honestly, I don’t remember the song and it really had no meaning to either of us. (Obviously, if I can’t remember it lol.) So, I am going to post what I wish I had chosen lol.

Ho Hey by the Lumineers


Anywhere With You by Jake Owen

I love both of those! They mean more to me than whatever I actually did dance to at my wedding lol.

Anyway, I’m off!

April 4 & 5: Songs That Remind You of Something Sad and Have a New Meaning

Alrighty, so now for a major contrast from the last song that was posted. Lol.

A few years ago, my Grandpa passed away. It was one of the hardest moments of my life because I just asked him to pray at our wedding and that was going to be a huge deal for me. But anyway, he was one of the most godly men that I have ever known. I miss his wisdom and love and knowledge of Scripture. This song reminds me of him and makes me sad that I am not up in heaven with him.

Streets of Gold by Needtobreathe

April 5: A Song that has a new meaning every time you hear it.

Shine On by Needtobreathe


Apparently, it was a Needtobreathe kind of day lol!


See ya!

April 1: A Song That Makes You Happy

Welcome to April! Happy April Fool’s!!!! Plus, aren’t we just glad it is April?! I mean come on. Here in Denver, that means we are closer to consistently staying warm. Lol. I am done with snow and cold lol.

This month I was going to do journaling prompts but then after reading through them, I found they are way too personal and I did not want to share some of those with the world wide web. So, instead I decided to do songs! I love music and so sharing song preferences is so much fun for me!

So, here we are.

April 1: A Song that Makes You Happy

Ho Hey by The Lumineers


If you have not listened to this song, you really must! It is pretty and it makes me think of TJ 🙂

See ya!
