6 Years

Today is my 6th anniversary with Kristobal. 6 years ago today, this man boy was walking me to work when he stopped in the middle of the pavement and asked me to be his girlfriend. (He tried asking me via text the night before, but I wouldn't have it so I told him to "man up" and ask me in person.) I took a chance on my then physics lab partner and said yes. It was the best decision I've ever made. I thank God every day for bringing him into my life and I can't wait for our future together.

I love him for more reasons than I can count, but I'll share some with you guys. What better way is there to celebrate than by airing your love out on the internet?

Why I love Kristo:

1// He cooks. Sometimes his culinary creations backfire (like the time he thought it would be a good idea to put cinnamon in scrambled eggs) (or the time his "croissants" turned out like pita chips), but at least he tries. Boy, does he try.

2// He thinks I'm funny He laughs at all my jokes(even when they're completely lame, which is all the time)

3// He wiggles his ears to make me laugh. I can't do this. Can anyone else do this?

4// He doesn't take my shit and he tells me when I'm being a brat.

5// He's patient when I don't understand rules of whatever sport we're watching and he never judges my choice of teams EVEN THOUGH THEY NEVER WIN
AND he buys me shirts for his teams when mine don't make the playoffs(which is always)

6// He doesn't think I'm nuts get annoyed that I've already picked a date for our wedding even though he hasn't proposed yet.

Last, but not least, he loves all of me and all of my weirdness all of the time.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, KRISTO. I LOVE YOU.

If I Knew I Could Not Fail

HEY GUYS TODAY IS THE DAY. Here I am once again only blogging because there's an awesome linkup to write about. Last week, Jordan wrote a really cool post inspired by her coffee mug. So cool in fact, that I practically begged her to make it a linkup so I could write my own post about it.Good news is that she already thought of it before I asked!

So here it is.  What would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail?

I'd buy a lottery ticket(and win the Mega Millions)

I'd get married tomorrow.

I'd become a career blogger who actually posts more than once a week and learn to make money off of it.

I'd get my doctorate and open my own audiology practice.

I'd get Kris into grad school at Drexel.
I'd convince Mom-Mom to get hearing aids.

I'd bake blueberry macarons.

I'd audition for The Voice, mainly so I could meet Adam and Blake. They'd love me and I'd win and Carrie Underwood would ask me to go on tour with her. We'd be unstoppable.

When I get bored with that, I'd play Queen Elsa in the Broadway adaptation of Frozen.

I want to know all about what you'd do. So go link up with Jordan!

The Best Things in Life

Short sweet post...ready set GO!

Every once in a while, you realize that you only need the little things in life to be happy. It isn't often and it's hard to see among all the bad things we see on the news and read in the paper and on msn's homepage. But I'm not here to dwell on the bad stuff. I'm here to spread sunshine and tell you all the little things that make me happy. 

+ the first sip of tea in the morning 

+ watching the last piece of glitter settle in the snow globe

+ homemade mashed potatoes

+ fresh school supplies

+ overhearing someone say something nice about you

+ seeing shapes in clouds

+ new socks

+ being caught up on your favorite shows

+ link ups with your blog friends. Make sure you pop over to Jordan's blog and read yesterday's post because it's going to be a link-up next THURSDAY! 


What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
all the small things...

Five on Friday

Oh happy day!

It's almost the weekend. Annnd I actually have plans (I know, even I can't believe it). Tonight I'm going to happy hour with my cousin after work and then tomorrow I'm going out with Amy and Courtney and our boyfriends to celebrate Amy passing her boards for her CT program YAY.

Today I'm linking up with The Good Life, A. Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, and Hello Happiness for Five on Friday. So let's get down to business to defeat the huns.

ONE // I ordered this months tshirt from Whitney at IWYP. If you've been living under a rock for the last 3 months or don't know what #IWYP is, you can google it or click here.

Random Thoughts

Heeeey party people,

I feel like it is almost impossible to get myself to blog lately. I have more free time than I ever had in school, but I just can't bring myself to post. I have multiple almost fully formed ideas written in my notebook, but it seems that the words never make it onto my laptop. I'm either feeling lazy or tired or I just don't feel like missing any of my shows. Does this happen to anyone else?

I think the problem is that I get so involved in a post that it becomes a chore for me and I want to just get back to writing simple things. No matter what "writing the perfect blog post" pins say, I want to write for me and that's all that really matters.

So the rest of this post is basically gonna be a bunch of word vomit.

+ I really love Adam and Blake's bromance on The Voice.

+ I really love my job. Like even more every day,

+I also love that after only 2 months, I feel like I've been friends with my coworker Courtney for years.

+ Why do I never take out my contacts before I start to paint my nails?

+ FROZEN WON AN OSCAR. I freaked out on Twitter and I'm not even sorry about it. I have watched it 3 times this week. #Perfection


+ Sarah posted about blogging today and she linked to a really awesome blog post about what Twitter is like.

+ I had a group chat... and text...and Tweeting spree with Jordan and Kaylee Sunday night. We talked about a bunch of random stuff and we all managed to send each other pictures of us with our respective boozes. So there's that. I love these two and the fact that I can say a paraphrased version of a Disney quote and they can spit it back to me word for word. And the fact that they moved the convo elsewhere when my wine-filled self couldn't keep up with the Twit.






Quote of the night: "If it's not in a mug, it's not champagne." 

Also, make sure you check out Amber's birthday month photo challenge on Instagram as part of the #sayyesproject

Also also, today is Amanda's birthday. So send her alcohol and Harry Potter themed presents!

Tell me something completely random!
