Sunday is for lovers


My first post via my new phone. 


Today was a pretty great day.  We went to visit my dad for the first time in awhile.  Then we drove around and ended up at  Central Market trying samples and bought a few treats. 


It was a day to remember why I fell in love with my best friend in the first place.  because we fit. anywhere anytime.

Sunday, Sunday...

Lovely breakfast with the FH before he heads into work. Today is a football day so pizza delivery tips should be good. Which is fantastic because we could certainly use the money.

I'm heading out shortly to do our grocery shopping. I really don't want to but it's a necessary evil. Maybe I can put it off till tomorrow. I really do hate it. Yeah, I think I'd rather stay in and watch a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy marathon on Netflix. 

I'm so lazy on Sundays and I love it.

What are you up to today?

Promises, Promises!

As of January 23, 2012, Sean and I are officially "promised." I know, it might sound like an archaic thing to do but it was actually very romantic. He wanted to express to me how much he loves me by giving me a ring that will someday be replaced by my wedding ring. He's such a wonderful man and I can't wait till we spend the rest of our lives together.

With that in mind, I've already started looking at a few sites to get some ideas for the Big Day. Granted, it's not going to happen until 2013 at the earliest but still, I love this part so here I go!

Thought I'd share a quickie pic of the ring and let anyone who cares, know that I've also started a wedding specific blog over at http://splendarrific.blogspot.com. Please feel free to stop by and share a comment or two. Or 10.

I figured I would go ahead and try writing a real  entry today too. Going  to do my best to post something every day, we'll see how long that lasts.

I am still off work until Tuesday and am starting to feel the boredom just a little bit. henrysean33and I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and bought a ton of stuff for me to finally start working on something creative. Thanks to my cousin-in-law, Brandi, I am making wall art. And I must say for my first couple of attempts, they aren't bad. My room is going to be so very pink! And The Boyfriend seems to like it that way. Or at least seems to be okay with it. So 3 completed pieces and I think at least 5 more to go plus the pre-made ones and I'm trying to get them all up on the wall by the weekend. Again, we'll see.

So now here I sit, 7-Eleven coffee in hand, watching Gossip Girl on Netflix in between moments of glancing over at my hunk of a boyfriend and wondering how in the world I ever got so lucky. Yep, I'm in love.

And that my friends is my New Year's Day. How was yours?

New Year's Eve 2011

2011 is about to draw to a close. henrysean33 and I chose to stay in tonight and have a How I Met Your Mother marathon. When midnight rolls around, I kinda wanna be watching When Harry Met Sally but we'll see what the boy says when the time comes.

The last few weeks have been pretty great but the rest of the year was terrible. I am so ready for a re-boot. Come on 2012. Starting tomorrow, I am working on my photography by taking a photo a day in a program called Project 365. I may even post them here.

I hope I get to at least February this year. Wish me luck! Again.

It's finally here. The day I've waited for. Sean and I are taking the big road trip north to meet up with the family in Michigan for Christmas. I am actually writing this entry from the car while he's driving. We are about an hour away from my Mom's house in Newton, Kansas aka our place of rest for the night. It's been a long drive and my poor guy is exhausted. We're going to get in a few hours sleep and then hit the road again. Only 12 more hours and we will be there.

Driving at night isn't as much fun as it is during daylight hours. You can't see anything. I know sounds obvious but hey we're trying to save time here, we only get a few days.

As usual, no trip would be complete without me feeling like I forgot something. I haven't figured out what it is yet. Probably tomorrow.

Back to my cup of coffee and entertaining Sean with my goofy renditions of 80's favorites. Next up Rock Me Amadeus!

Pink Hat
henrysean33 and I are about to celebrate our 6 month anniversary. I can't believe how the time has flown by. I was thinking today about how miserable I was last Christmas wishing I had someone to spend the holidays with. I've always dreamed of falling in love with my best friend and it finally happened. I know people say things like "he's the best thing that's ever happened to me." In my case, it's true. He saved my life.

Before him, I was unhealthy and very unhappy. Now, I find myself laughing every day, I have more energy and I've gotten my health under control. His support was just what I needed.

I love him. He makes me happy and that's really all I need in life these days.

Photography, again!

I'm finally at an actual computer where I am post for real.

So one of my big things lately has been photography. I've been reading up a lot, looking at various cameras and gearing myself up for taking a LOT of pictures over the holidays. I always have my digital camera at the ready (in my purse, that is) but for reason always forget to use it. I need to just start clicking away, it's the only way to really get started, right?

I don't care if it's a picture of a lamp post or my boyfriend sleeping, maybe it will be the most creative work I've ever done. But there's only one real way to find out. I have to get started. So I am going with it today.

I am going to try the Day in My Life concept again. I did this several years ago and really enjoyed it. I think it will be the best way for me force myself to take pictures of things all day long. Now, I just have to decide what day. I'm definitely going to start today with taking pictures of EVERYTHING. Okay, maybe not everything but close to it. Nobody needs to see me in the shower, believe me!

Our company recently put together a volunteer committee and I chose to join. We are supposed to bring ideas for next week's meeting. So far I've chosen Special Olympics, Ronald McDonald House and then of course the Komen foundation. I also wanted to look into a group of us maybe participating in the local Diabetes walk.

Anyone have any suggestions? I want to do something different and creative but I'm new to this.

Ideas, please.

Almost done Christmas shopping. Few more things for my guy, Mom and then Secret Santa at work and I am finished.

It's really cold here which always makes the holidays brighter to me. Sean and I are driving to Michigan to celebrate with the family and I am super excited. I want so badly for the family to like him. We are doing all of the family traditions and maybe start a few of our own. I really do miss my family.

Tonight is going to be my wrapping night. I bought Spongebob paper for my nieces gifts. I can't wait to see their faces. I am definitely taking pictures.

I think I'm going to see if my office has any hot chocolate to start my day.

Happy Holidays!
