My Namesake

Last night I went to The Cheesecake Factory with some friends and I must say that this Stefanie's Red Velvet is to die for!  I was far too full to eat it last night, but I had it for lunch today and man oh man! Having a cheesecake named after you is the best!

Lots O' Letters Left!

Las Vegas - Las Vegas and I have a very complicated relationship.  It's definitely a love/hate kinda thing.  I've been SO many times and each time has been so different.  I always love going just to see what kind of crazy trip it's going to be this time. 

 Lost - Oh how you controlled my life for so long!  I LOVED Lost!  It was so complex and intricate.  So many characters and story lines that were all interconnected.  Finishing the whole thing at the Lost Party in Las Vegas was the perfect way to end it.  

Lollicup - Most people probably don't know what this means.  That is such a shame!  It's a wonderfully delicious boba drink place that used to reside downtown.  It's been years but I still crave it every once in a while.

Love Stories - I can't help it.  It's innate.  I am drawn to any sort of love story.  Whether it be book, film, song or any other type of media.  It doesn't matter.  Lee Bryce's "Love Like Crazy" is such a great song.  It makes me believe in true and lasting love.  

Laughing - Nothing makes a day better than a good laugh.  It can completely turn a day around.  That is what I love about working with Andrea.  She has always got me laughing my head off.  I'm really going to miss that!

Great Weekend

I had such a fun weekend!  On Friday I threw a birthday party for my friend Erin.  We had a campfire in our front yard and roasted dogs and mallows.  Then we set up a projector and a sheet and had an outdoor movie.  It was a blast.  Then yesterday my sister-in-law was hosting a pig roast at her house.  I was a little leery of the idea, but it was actually a ton of fun.  It was fun to chill outside all weekend.  I haven't done that in ages.

BFF Blog

I'm SO happy to announce that my PAL Natalie has finally gotten a blog!  Now I don't feel like such a goof.  She's very crafty and I can't wait to see all the fun things she makes and all the fun things she wants to say!

King Me!

Kindness  - I can't describe how much nicer it is to be treated kindly than not.  Some people are so rude, especially at work, and it makes me especially grateful for those people who are nice.  I really appreciate when my friends are kind to me.  Sometimes it's easier to be rude to the people you are closest to, but I really love when I'm treated nicely. 

Kissing - I'll admit it.  I don't think that I could go back to a life of not kissing.  It's quite fun!  It's something that probably gets taken for granted, but I sure love getting kisses goodbye, and hello, and goodnight, and good morning.  I'm a newlywed.  What can I say?

5K - Okay maybe that was kind of a stretch.  I love working the 5ks and other races at my work.  They are so much fun!  It means getting up pretty early, but I think it's worth it.  Plus, I get a free shirt!  I'll do just about anything for a free shirt.  I did one once.  I pretty much bombed it.  I'm hoping to do another one in the next few months.  

and of course.......

Kurt - He's just the greatest.  I just plain adore him.  He is incredibly sweet.  He's always doing nice things for me and I couldn't have found anyone better!  He is the perfect husband.  I really love spending my time with him.  I wish our schedules meshed a little better, but it makes the time we do spend together even better.

Stuck in a Rut

I need to do something crafty asap! That little craft part of my brain is just screaming at me to get something done. 

Sunday, July 4, 2010


Jeremy - I know this sounds crazy to have my loser ex-boyfriend on my list of things that I'm grateful for, but I really am grateful for him.  I'm actually really glad that he was such a jerk, because he made it so much easier for me to recognize how great of a guy Kurt is in comparison.

Jammin - There are just some songs that you just can't help but turn up and dance to.  When I started dating Kurt, he didn't like it when I sang in the car.  I really thought it might be a deal breaker.  Luckily he's come to his senses and just turned the music up a little higher so he can still enjoy the music while I'm jamming out. 

Joy Riding - There is no better way to spend a day with my new husband than out on the motorcycle.  It's fun to just hop on the back and go somewhere, anywhere.  I enjoy not having to think about it, and just being along for the ride

Jacob - I was always a book Edward fan.  Through and through.  I mean I liked Jacob, and I felt awful for him when Bella toyed with his emotions, but it was always Edward that she was supposed to be with.  However, Taylor Lautner changed this for me.  He is one hot guy!  He kind of actually reminds me of one of Kurt's co-workers, but I can get over it for the hotness.  I'm definitely on Team Jacob now!  

June - Oh they say when you marry in June, you're a bride all your life.  I sure hope its true.  I love June purely because it means summer, but now I have another reason.  I can't believe it rained the entire wedding day, but that's ok.  I'll always be a bride. :)
