3 random factoids

today i've decided to share 3 random factoids about myself....

i used to be a tomboy but am definitely a girly girl now. i almost NEVER brushed or styled my hair. it was always thrown into a ponytail at the nape of my neck (i still never brush my hair, but now i style it at least (: )

i have contacts but wear glasses most of the time because i believe they hide my face. i realize this is not the case because my glasses are tiny but subconsciously it makes me feel better. 

i love hot dogs in the summer. there isn't a day that you could ask me if i wanted a hot dog off the grill and i would decline. if i did, you'd know something was wrong with me. they do have to be a little burnt in a nicely buttered & toasted roll. there literally is nothing better...

i am a strange cat...this i know. but these are just a few of the things that make me, well, me! 


check back tomorrow for a post about my memorial day weekend (hopefully)....

friday's letter 2.0


dearest 3 day weekend, 
how YOU doin'? :) 

dearest friends, 
i am excited to see all of you this weekend. i will be tired on tuesday, but it will be worth it because you are all the best

dearest target online buys, 
hurry up and get here, okay? 

dearest mom and dad, 
i know you want me to be happy but please stop telling me what i do and do not need! i am 29, i know what i need, love youuuuuuu

dearest jeep wrangler, 
should i get you? i think you would be an AMAZING summer vehicle!

dearest sister, 
good luck moving today. it's a pain in the butt, huh? but i am glad you got movers. moving your stuff from the 3rd floor walk up would NOT have been my idea of a good time. :) 

dearest ashley from adventures of newlyweds
thanks for this link up, i'm kind of in love with it 

dearest self, 
i have seen glimpses of you this week, it feels good to be coming back. you should hurry up too. you don't have to be the old you, because let's face it, we all change and every one grows. just be a better version of yourself that is happy and make others feel it too. because in actuality the happiness of others makes you more happy. spread the love and bask in its rays. <3

have a lovely weekend....toodles!

this past weekend was pretty great

it was sunny and hot and i lived :) 

it all started thursday night when i went to see Michael Jackson's The Immortal World Tour Cirque de Soliel

QQhis hologram on the curtain

what an amazing show! you must check it out if it comes to an arena near you

friday night i saw "what to expect when you're expecting" and it was hilarious! 

everyone was really great in it, but the dads stole the show for sure...

saturday and sunday were spent in the sunshine with some fabulous kids that really brighten my weekends, teaching them is such a pleasure. (so much so that i ALWAYS forget to take pictures)

finished the weekend off with a sunday night bbq with my parents.

i am tan, nails are painted, full belly, smiles and happy little weekend if i do say so myself! :)

as of late...

It just goes to show you: you can put nine insane miles between you and another person. You can make a vow to never speak his name. You can surgically remove someone from your life. And still, he’ll haunt you. 
- jodi picoult

i would have to quit everything i love, just to get away from you.

and that i'm not willing to do, so stronger i become. 

here's to another a new beginning...

and this we must all believe, because we are
