new day, new dawn, new life for me.....

And I'm feelin' gooooooooooooood....

The end of the year 2011 is approaching and I have been thinking A WHOLE LOT...

You know, we all have this "plan" in our mind, when we are younger, of how our life will turn out when we grow up. Absolutely NO WHERE in that plan did I think 29 and single would be in the same sentence.

Yet here I am. I've been single for almost 5 years now. I've dated a few guys here and there since the BIG break up (more on that to come in a later post) but only one to really call home about.

But I couldn't call home. He cares about me but "has a lot going."

Really, he's just trying to find himself and has a huge fear of becoming his father, who has a history of bad relationships and divorce. But the more he doesn't want to become him, the more I see him actually turning out just like him and it breaks my heart because he has so much potential (more on this later as well).

So back to square one for me.

Trying to find myself before I find Mr. Right. That's how it should be done, right?

29, single, no dating prospects. Trying to start a dance club at a high school I coach the colorguard at (marching band woohoo). Figuring out my career which I have a serious love/hate/depression relationship with.

I am an extremely passionate person throughout all aspects of my life. I throw myself heart first into anything and everything I do. Somehow, my friends think this "makes it easy" to be friends with me.

Dancing and teaching are my passions. I plan on exploring those to the ends of the earth. I am passionate about loving my family and friends and people I come in contact with.

This life is too short and too beautiful so I'm taking advantage and loving it until the very last drop.

I'm not feeling too good just yet. But I hope to get there. I WILL get there.

2012, you better watch out! <3

it's coming...

this is my parent's B-E-A-UUUUUUUUUUU-TIFUL tree with no ornaments...yet.

i put it up a few weeks ago and my mom has officially finshed the tree with ornaments and all the cute little things we put on it as well the skirt.
(just haven't been home to take a pic of it yet, bad daughter)

my sissy and i put up the tree together. we have to get a fake tree because i am allergic (huge downer)

normally we have white lights because i think white is classier, more sophisticated, prettier

but mom wanted a little color in her life. and she deserves it <3

so we please, we please :)

i hope you're tree is up and shining brightly in your home. it's the best kind of christmas cheer!

Over the next few days (to get in the habit of the daily post) I am going to recap my past few weekends of December.

First weekend up...MY BIRTHDAY! wooohooooooooo

Started the weekend off with a birthday beer at work around 3pm (nothing like getting a brewski in before the work week is even over)

Saturday started with a baby shower (of which I have no pictures from because I am a SLACKA)

Then on to our annual Stonehill Christmas Party! All of our friends get together and we do a Yankee Swap. It is so much fun and we just love to catch up with each other and have a grand ole' time.

the spread, YUM

the wine, double YUM

shots all around for the gentlemen

giggling like a school girl because they think I'm taking a shot...

oh snap, I am!

some of the girls "gathering" around Amy

getting ready for present picking!
same girls closer to the end of the night, this was immediately followed by Christmas Carols in the dining room

On Sunday, I had my college BFF's wedding shower, and I took absolutely no pictures because I was running around, like the good bridesmaid I am! :) Her mom took pics and if I can get some, I'll be sure to post them here. Below is my outfit for the day and my VERY messy room.
Hey! It takes a lot for a girl to pick out her own outfit. She has to see what she's got in that closet of hers!

And below is the final picture from that weekend. This is not my tattoo but only a place where I am thinking of getting one. I think this tattoo looks SO SEXY! I want my next one right here!
So that was the first weekend in December. Pretty eventful and busy. I love being busy but it sure makes me tired, doncha think?!?

toodaloooooo for now :)

dear boy...

I just love elise's pieces to pieces! :)

So I'm just linking up with her today and my favorite Christmas Love song.

But I only have one dear boys...

Dear Mr. Banana Pancakes,

I miss you and your silly, scratchy bearded face. It's my favorite part of you because it houses your smile. Could you please get your crap together and be with me?


not exactly a love song but one of my favorites sung by Mr. Otis Redding, himself!

Just gets me in the mood for snuggling and some Christmas spirit!

it's my.....



ok's not exactly my birthday....yet. It's on Saturday.

I'm under the impression that once you get to a certain age (I'm not THAT old) that your birthday should last a WHOLE month.

I mean, don't we deserve it for all the hard work we do in our lives?

What's a little extra celebration?!?

I love birthdays. Really. Getting older when some don't have the privilege.

Reminds you to live every day like it's your last, doesn't it?

This month, this holiday, and my birthday remind me all the time to live this life to the last drop.

And I plan on doing so, don't you?
