Red Headed Slut

I shouldn't admit it, but the Red Headed Slut is my favorite drink. I don't even remember how it happened. But since I've known T, this has been my drink of choice. I just enjoy it. It's girly, not too crazy, and fun. :) T, he prefers beer. I'm not a big fan of beer. But you know, it's all good.

What got me thinking about drinking? It's almost New Year's. And we were making some plans. Being responsible. That's important. If you're going to drink, you need to be responsible. And plan ahead. No drinking and driving.

Sorry, I didn't want to go all "Back-to-School" special on you. Especially when I'm talking about my favorite drink. But it's important to stay safe. :) XOXO

Yummy Donuts!

T brought home a mass amount of donuts this morning. The yummy glazed ones! They were still hot from the bakery. Yummy! They were pull apart gooey hot dough. We may or may not have eaten the entire 2 dozens! Oops! But at least we had some milk too. ;) XOXO

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! It's an absolutely beautiful morning here. :) T and I have decided to spend Christmas at home together. Just the 2 of us. We're even attempting to cook. Although, it's a precooked ham, mashed potatoes, that sort of thing. But we're trying!

We've definitely started some holiday traditions of our own! And one day, it will be nice to tell our kiddos all about them and how they started. But for today, we're just going to hangout. You know, we're going to enjoy our son, W. He's a good boy. And Santa even brought him some presents!

Merry Christmas from all of us! XOXO

Troop Beverly Hills

This was one of my favorite movies growing up. I know. Weird. But I really liked it. So much so, I used to make my bestie watch it with me all the time! Every time she would come to my house, she had to watch it. I don't know why I liked it so much. But I did!

Maybe because I wasn't an "outdoorsy" person. I never went to camp. I was never a girl scout. This movie just made me think, I could have still had the same kind of fun. Too bad we didn't have a Troop Beverly Hills in my hometown. :) XOXO

Friday, December 19, 2008


In every single way, this song reminds me of my bestie and her guy. They're so much in love. And she is sick. Really sick. Fighting it with all she has. And her guy, he's right there helping her through it. You can tell that he used to be a "tough guy." A little hard and reserved. But she has broken through all of that. And he just loves her. No matter what. Sickness and health. That's love. And she's strong. They're strong together. And I know that she's going to make it through all of this. :) XOXO

Tuesday, December 16, 2008


I don't know if I've ever mentioned W on here. Something tells me I haven't. W is T's dog. A big dog. When T and I first started dating, W didn't like me. I have to confess, I didn't like him much either.

But I'm like the dog sitter. When the guys are working, I watch their dogs for them. Because I have nothing else to do. And it's really not hard to do. Anyway, I spend lots of time with them. And over time, W and I are starting to like each other.

You see, in the beginning, he definitely didn't want to share T. And he was so protective over him. Let's not even talk about the bed situation. But it got to the point where T would have to put W in the spare bedroom a good hour before we'd go to bed. If not, W would lay across the bed. And he wouldn't let me near it!

But like I said, were getting better. W is starting to like me. And I'm getting used to him. You see, I never had pets as a kid. My mom just didn't like them. She barely could stand us. But W and I, well, were starting to love each other. :)

Especially this week. But that's mostly because T is away. And it's been storming like crazy. W is kinda stuck with me. And I'm stuck with him. We even cuddled up on the couch last night to watch a movie. It's progress I tell you! XOXO

Saturday, December 13, 2008


I don't really know much about "outdoorsy" type of things. I'm just not that kind of a person. My parents never took us camping or anything. we just were "city folks." Nothing bad about it. But just weird.

Well, T went on a hunting trip with his buddies. Yes, I said hunting trip. I don't know what they're going to hunt. Or what goes down. I do know, they asked my bestie to go with them. Ya, a bunch of guys. Because she hunts too. And I think they really want her to go cook for them.

But she's working. And well, the guys are on their own. Yes, hunting. T and her guy, with a bunch of friends. Here, we're having crazy snow storms. Go figure! And I'm pretty much trapped at home. But that's OK too. The guys are hunting animals, and I'm going to watch some of my favorite movies. XOXO

Christmas Tree

We managed to chop down a Christmas tree this morning. And drag it through the snow. To T's truck. And we finally got it home. While searching for an appropriate picture for this post, I found this one. Not exactly what we have, but we have a tree.

T got it into the tree stand. And it's standing outside. On the porch. Because it's still covered in snow. We're hoping some of it falls off before we bring it inside.

But I'm pretty excited. 1st off, we have a Christmas tree! 2nd I've never had a real tree! 3rd, it's our first Christmas together. This is going to be so much fun! I just can't wait! Oh, and we also bought a bunch of Christmas decorations. :) I'll be doing lots of decorating this week while T is out of town. XOXO

Home Sweet Home

We made it home. Just a few minutes ago. And all I want to do is snuggle up in a warm blanket like this one. Doesn't it look so inviting?

We had a great time in the city. And I kinda wish we could have stayed a little longer. Because the city is so magical at this time of year. But after lots of work (for the guys) and lots of shopping (for us gals) we're home. With lots of bags. We did lots of Christmas shopping!

I think we're going to take the next few days to relax. And to try and get our Christmas tree up. Maybe some of these presents wrapped too. That would be nice. But for tonight, I see myself having a date with the couch, T, and a warm blanket. Maybe even a fire. :) XOXO

Friday, December 5, 2008


We're still here in NYC. And it's pretty cold. My bestie has been sporting some of the cutest scarves ever! And she always manages to tie them so nice. I'm not good at that stuff. Not at all! But she is. And looks so put together.

Maybe I should start with buying a scarf. I should have thought about that a few days ago. Then I need to learn how to wear them. Because I swear, every day, my bestie has had a scarf on. And every day, she wears them different.

And who doesn't want to be warm and toasty? I know I want to be! That's on the top of the list for me today, a new scarf. And a lesson from my bestie. Now I just need to get out of bed and get ready... XOXO

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

Oh Nellie!

This morning, T and The Guy went to go do some work stuff. My bestie and I were just hanging out. In their room. Because it's amazing! It's like an apartment. No lie!

Back to the point here. We were talking about when we were little. OMG! We're were hilarious. Yes, my bestie and I were born in the early 80s. And well, fashion was hilarious. Wasn't it bad enough that it was the 80s? Apparently not! My mom, would dress me up like a character from Little House in the Prairie. I felt like Nellie Oleson...

First of all, I'm a blond. With green eyes. And my mom used to put those stupid sponge rollers in my hair. And it would turn out like this! :/

I also had ridiculous bangs like these. The ones that hit in the middle of your forehead. Makes you look stupid. Ya, I had those.

And those stupid bows. I wore those. The big ones that were bigger than my entire head! And the stupid bows that she would tie in the weirdest places...

Yes, my mom tried to sew too! Not cool clothes like my bestie's mom made her. But stupid looking ones. I looked like a character from Little House in the Prairie. They never fit right. We're like 3 sizes too big. And we're so uncomfortable. We're not even going to talk about the fabric she would choose...

And that big bow, it just makes me laugh! I had so many of those stupid things! Ya, my mom was cruel to me. And my uncle, he used to feel bad. He would take me shopping without my mom knowing. And we'd buy "cool" clothes. Then I'd wear them under the hideous dresses. Because my parents wouldn't drive me to school.

Until that one day that she caught me. I had forgotten my lunch. When she brought it to school, I was in jeans and some neon shirt. Remember, it was the 80s. I thought I looked cool. My mom was going to kill me. And well, I still don't remember what happened to those jeans. After that, she used to make sure I only had those ugly dresses on when I left home. XOXO

Happy Birthday My Love!!!

Today is my loves birthday. It's an important day! Just because it's his day. :) You know, when you get older, birthdays become, well less important. Except for the big ones. But I still want T to have an amazing day. :)

My Love,

Happy birthday! I hope I can make this one to remember. Because you are so important to me. I love you with all of my heart. I've never felt this way about anyone else in my life. And all I want to do is love you and make you happy!

You are so special. In every way. You make me smile. Just by being you. And I hope that you have the most amazing birthday you've ever had!

I hope that this is only the beginning of our road together. I hope that we have many more birthdays to celebrate together. I know I can't cook. And I'm not good at planning things. I'm more of a goof ball than a romantic. But T, I'm going to do everything I can to make this a good day for you! Happy Birthday My LOVE!!!

XOXO Your Hills

Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Turkey Day! I'm so excited today! It's my favorite holiday. I really like to eat. And well, we managed to get some good dinner plans going. We're going to have dinner with some friends. Yay!

T and I are going to take some pies. Don't worry, I didn't bake them. I'm just not that talented. Instead, we ordered them from the bakery on Monday. And picked them up last night. They smell so yummy!

I can't wait to eat. And just hangout with friends. I hope you have a great day! Happy Thanksgiving. :) XOXO

Pumpkin Pie

Nothing says Thanksgiving like pumpkin pie. And I was considering making some. I looked up some recipes on YouTube. And this is what I got. Who makes pies from an actual pumpkin? This is so far beyond my skills!

And when I went to the store for some canned pumpkin, they didn't have any. How do I know about the stuff? Well, I used to eat it when I was little. Out of the can. Shhh! Don't tell my mom. She would have killed me!

But I just glad that we're picking up some pies from the bakery. I never realized how much work went into making a pie. Um, ya. My mom always used to buy them from Costco. Maybe by next year, I will have mastered the pumpkin pie...from a real pumpkin. XOXO

What Are We Going to Do?

We're still not home. But I've been thinking about Thanksgiving. Which is weird when you're in a tropical paradise. But it's this week. And since we're on our "own" this year, what are we going to do? Um, ya. Neither me or T are good cooks. Maybe we're just going to go out for dinner. Because I'm not really good at these things.

It doesn't help that we aren't home. But something will work out. At least I hope so. Because I really like Thanksgiving food. Oh, and the leftover sandwiches. :) If only I could cook... XOXO

Sun and Sand

This tree, well it kinda reminds me of the way I'm feeling. A little sideways. But really happy! T and I are really having a great time. Just enjoying beautiful Florida! And each other. ;) The weather has been so nice. And it has just been nice to hangout.

You know, T is now on vacation. Sorta kinda. The "real" crazy and chaotic work doesn't start again until February. He still has work. And lots of it. But things are going to really slow down a bit. And we have a few trips planned. I'm so excited about this break! XOXO

Monday, November 17, 2008

This is Where We're At...

This is where T and I ended up today. For lunch. Can't explain why we're still here. It's nearing dinner time now. But we're having lots of fun. Just thought I'd let you know where you could find us. You know, if you were wondering... XOXO

Bathing Suits

So I have no were near a "perfect" body. No, that's not me. I've got some nice "child bearing hips." I got that from my mom. And some slightly large breasts. The kind that need a little support. I also wear between a size 9 and 11. Just depending on the pants.

T doesn't seem to mind. It's funny. He doesn't even realize that I'm slightly bigger...OK bigger...than most of the women that travel in this group. I'm very aware of it. Maybe because my bestie is like a size -10. But she works out a lot. And performs. Her work somewhat depends on her body. Because she is a singer and dancer. I get it.

But it doesn't help that all these other women look like models. Or that we went to the beach yesterday. Just us ladies. And they all looked amazing in their bikinis. I sported a 1 piece. So did my bestie. But she totally looked better than I did.

I was feeling slightly down this morning, so I decided to look for a new bathing suit online. Something more girly. And I found this one. But I'm just not sure about it. I'm worried that my legs will look HUGE! And I won't have enough upper body support.

It's just weird. Most woman in the US are bigger than me. Or at least my size. And I feel so uncomfortable in my body. Why? I never felt like this before. But then again, I didn't travel in a group were most of the men are married to actual models. XOXO

Florida Bound

Yes, we're headed here. I'm so excited! A few days in the sun. And hopefully the sand. T is working until Sunday. But I'm sure we can manage some time away from his work. I'm just anxious to spend some time with him. And you know, enjoy the Florida weather. :) XOXO

Sunday, November 9, 2008


Do you see those? They're high heels. OK, technically, these are candy ones. But they're still high heels...

I can't walk in heels for my life! I try. But I'm just too clumsy. What's my deal? I swear that I'm a woman. But I just am not good at the girly things like doing my hair and makeup. And walking in heels.

It kinda makes me mad. But what can you do? I just try to deal. At the house, well I practice. Only when T is gone. Because He might think I'm nuts. Eventually, I'm going to master them. Like my bestie. She can live in high heels. Running in them and everything. If only I could figure it out! XOXO

Thursday, November 6, 2008


Do you see that picture? That's a rattlesnake. I know. I grew up in the SW. I should at least be "used to them." But I'm not! Not at all!

We landed a couple of hours ago. And some of the guys started talking about Rattlesnakes. Apparently, there are going to be tons of them around all weekend! I'm going to flip out! I hate them. I'm already paranoid. I made T look in the bed, bathroom, and closet of our hotel room. I don't know what I was expecting him to see...

But I'm freaked out. I'm not good with creatures. Especially slimy ones. With rattles. OMG! I just hope I survive this weekend...

On a better note, we had a blast in my hometown! T and I are thinking about another trip there around the holidays. None of my family still lives there. But there are so many things to do. And we're hoping that my bestie and his buddy will go with us. :) XOXO

Monday, November 3, 2008


We're finally home. In my hometown. Yes! T wanted to see where I grew up. Well, until I moved East. And since we were already out West, we decided to use his few "days off" wisely.

It's crazy being back here. I haven't been here in at least 6 years! But it's also nice. We went by my childhood house earlier. It was so crazy seeing another family living there. But the house looks nice. They've done so much work to it. We also went by my grandparents' old house. I have lots of good memories of that house. And we also went by my elementary and middle schools. So crazy! They've changed a lot.

We decided to call it a day. And went to one of my favorite places for dinner. It was super yummy! And tomorrow, we have so many adventures. I want to show T as much of my hometown as possible. We don't have a lot of time. But we're going to make the best of it. :) XOXO

Happy Halloween :)

So our friends are having a little get-together. And T and I are going. Yup, we brought our costumes with us. Because T is actually working right now! I'm going to be on "Candy Patrol" for the 1st part of the night. So it should be pretty fun.

Right now, I'm just relaxing. Eating some mini candy bars. And trying to talk myself into my Halloween costume. But I'm determined to have a good time tonight. I know T and are going to enjoy ourselves.

Happy Halloween! XOXO

She Makes It Look So Easy!

Ali makes makeup look so easy! She reminds me of my bestie. It just comes so natural for them. And every look is amazing! I wish I could be more like them. But these days, I'm lucky I can get mascara on without getting it all over my face. And I seem to always have more lipstick on my teeth, than on my lips!

What happened to me? I used to be really good at these things. I'm not lying! I really liked makeup when I was younger. Maybe I need to watch more of these makeup videos. XOXO

Friday, October 24, 2008

A Couple of Costumes...

This might be the 1st time I've ever been in a serious relationship at Halloween. Definitely, the 1st time I decide to dress up in a "Couple's costume." But T wanted to do something fun like this.

It took us forever to decide on a costume. He wanted 1 theme, I wanted another. We finally agreed on Betty and Barney Rubble. I'm pretty sure both of our costumes were under $60. ;)

T tried on his costume right away. Just to play around. I think he looks cute. I'm just not so sure about mine. I mean, I've got "Thunder thighs." I'm just glad my legs are mostly hidden. Actually, all my "trouble spots" will be hidden. :) XOXO

Tuesday, October 21, 2008


Just thought I'd share. I LOVE Bewitched. I used to watch it all the time when I was little. And I haven't seen it in forever! But the other night, I couldn't sleep. And I was going through different channels. I found some kind of marathon. I sat and watched for hours. It just made me smile. The next day I was beyond tired. But it was a nice thing to catch up on. XOXO

Saturday, October 18, 2008


OMG! Where have these bad boys been my entire life? I'm not even going to tell you how many I've had since we've been here. But they're yummy! I can't stand how good they are. I might just have to get into the guys eating competition. I'm pretty sure I'm ahead of a lot of them already! :)

Tomorrow, I'm going to have a few more. Yes, they're that good! I can't stand it. T thinks I'm crazy. I think he has maybe had 1 or 2. But after that 1st one I had, I just couldn't stop. I know. I'm like an addict. Even my bestie is laughing at me. She's reading this as I type. But really, these are like the hot dogs sent from heaven. XOXO

Ask Me Makeup

Amy is just the sweetest girl ever! I LOVE to watch her makeup videos. She's super talented. And has the best tips ever. I really need them. Like no body's business. That's why I like these videos so much. Have I mentioned how good Amy is at makeup? I hope I can learn something from her. But her videos are amazing! XOXO

Sunday, October 12, 2008

Milky Way

I would give my right arm and leg for one of these. But only right now. At this very second! I'm so hungry! And I really want some chocolate. What the heck is going on with me lately? Anyway, I'm really craving one. But we're in the middle of nowhere. And I don't think there is anywhere around here where I can buy one. So I can look at this picture and imagine how amazing it tastes... XOXO

Happy Birthday Guy!

Today is our friend's birthday. I hope he has a great day. I know that he's really excited that my bestie is here too. They've gotten so close. And have a great relationship. Today should be fun. Or rather, tonight should be fun. They have a big bash planned for "The Guy." We're all headed to the city for some fun. And all of us are ready to help him celebrate his birthday. Happy Birthday friend! XOXO

Hot Chocolate

Totally craving a big mug of hot chocolate. With marshmallows. Maybe some whipped cream. Sounds yummy!

It's definitely cooling down here. And it makes me want to curl up with hot stuff. Like hot chocolate, soup, and a warm blanket. I just love winter time. :) XOXO

Saturday, October 4, 2008

Sweet Home Alabama

I'm not going to lie. Last night was an eye opening experience for me. T took me out to see some of the fun that this place has to offer. It's craziness! I'm sure my bestie and her guy went out too. But something tells me, they weren't at the same places we were.

I guess I'm really starting to understand what this life is all about. The people were hilarious! I'm being so serious here. It was a lot of fun. But honestly, at the end of the day, I'm not sure if I could hang with these people. And I'm no angel. But seriously, that's a lot of partying.

Sweet Home Alabama will never sound the same to me again. But it was a fun night. I may or may not still be in my pjs. In bed. Because, that's how crazy last night was. Enough said. But it was fun! XOXO

Wednesday, October 1, 2008

Chocolate Cake

I've totally been craving chocolate cake all day! I even attempted a boxed cake. Which I burnt. :( But I still have a tub of chocolate frosting. :)

Ugh! First thing tomorrow, I'm going to go to the store. I'm buying a HUGE chocolate cake. And I'm eating a HUGE piece. I don't care what time of day it is. I'm ready for some chocolate cake! XOXO

Gilmore Girls

I love this show! I'm late on the Gilmore Girls' bus. But I've been watching the DVDs. And this is such a great show. Quirky. Weird. But funny! I don't care what anyone says. I really enjoy watching this show. That's what I've been doing lately. You know, I have lots of hours to entertain myself. I sorta miss working. So I have to find other things to fill up my days... XOXO

Saturday, September 27, 2008

Pizza Rolls

Let me be honest here. I grew up all foods frozen and fast food. It wasn't a good thing either. But these little babes, they were my favs! I ate a few boxes a week. See, I'm admitting it. OK, so before my mom started dating my step dad, I probably ate 3 boxes a week. They were my go-to after school snack. So yummy!

Pizza rolls are still my favorite snack. I really wish that I could find a way to make some healthier version. Because it's about time I start caring about these things. But seriously, just the box makes me smile. :) XOXO

Healthy Hair Curling

I really like this video. Because this girl reminds me a lot of my bestie. And she has fun ideas. I'm not very good at the whole hair and makeup glam thing. So I like these tips. Even if my hair is short. Maybe this will work. It can't hurt to try. Right? I just don't know if my hair will stay pinned. But I'm going to try this out. Probably when T is working. So he doesn't think I'm a freak! XOXO

Friday, September 19, 2008

Eyelash Curlers

I'm deathly afraid of these little guys. And I don't know why! I used to use eyelash curlers when I was like 10 years old. What the heck is wrong with me? But now, when I use them, I feel like I'm going to pull out all of my eyelashes. So I avoid them like the plague!

I don't mind if my bestie uses one on me. It's like I trust her abilities more than my own. Weird, I know! But it's the truth. Am I the only one that has these crazy thoughts about eyelash curlers? XOXO

I'm Learning

My new life, it includes lots of things. Starting with the work week. Mondays, those are T's days off. Days to do nothing at all. Completely free of work and responsibilities. AKA Most people's Sundays.

Tuesdays, he works. That's a very important day. He goes to work. I don't know exactly what goes on. But I'm assuming it's like "regular work." The stuff that you and me are used to.

Thursdays are travel days. Nothing too interesting. Just traveling. Then the guys work all weekend. I can pretty much assume that I need to entertain myself all day Friday, Saturday mornings and night, and a good part of Sunday. But it's not that bad.

You see, we still spend lots of time together. And we travel all over the place. It really isn't that bad. Don't feel bad for me. Because it's pretty fun. :)

And the wives/girlfriends...they're funny! My bestie hasn't gotten into that scene. She's just a loner. And her guy is always busy. So they try to get all of their work done at the same time. So when he is off, they can just hangout. And well, they're keeping things on the DL...

The rest of the women around here. Well, they are like professional shoppers. No lie! That's all they do. Shop. Until they drop. And exercise. It's crazy! I don't know if I will ever fit in. But I'm trying. And failing miserably! But it's OK. T and I crack up about some of these antics. It's just so different from the life I was living 2 months ago. XOXO

September 11th

It's crazy how quickly our lives changed 7 years ago. It was scary. I was supposed to be on a flight to NYC later that day. Because the earlier flight didn't have enough room room me and my friends. We had already booked everything. Rooms, various things to do, place to be. We were supposed to fly out early in the morning. And be at the WTC to look around. But 2 days before, it changed. And our flights were changed. But we were still going to spend some time in NYC. Just having some fun. Being young and free.

But all of that was shattered. All of our plans. Our security. Our youth. And our world. It was sad and scary. Something that I will never forget. As long as I live.

It's weird when I think about that day. I just keep thinking to myself, I could have been there. inside the World Trade Center. Looking around. But God had other plans for me. And I wasn't there.

It still doesn't numb the pain. And the overwhelming feelings that come on this somber anniversary. So many lives were lost. So many children will never know their parents. It was the day our world was shattered. But instead of being sad, lonely, and scared, I'm going to celebrate those lives. And live he best life I can. Because it could have been me. XOXO

Where Would You Be

I just love this song. It's funny. I used to listen to a lot of country music when I was little. Then I stopped. I don't know why. My mom just went in a different direction in her life. Now that I'm here, we listen to a lot of it. Mostly because of my bestie and her guy. And I'm really starting to fall back in love with it. Martina sounds like an angel. And this song is perfect! XOXO

Friday, September 5, 2008


I have this to say, I suck at makeup! And I've been playing with it since I was in elementary. I used to be better than my bestie. I don't know what happened. Oh ya, I went all natural. I stopped really caring too much about makeup when we moved. And my bestie wasn't here.

We used to go to the mall, or even Wally World to buy makeup. She was always a lot less daring. Going for brown eyeshadows and pink lipsticks. While I liked green mascara and fake eyelashes.

Now, it's all I can do to find a foundation that matches my skin. Manage some sort of gloss. And maybe, add some brown mascara. What happened? Maybe I should try this out again. Who knows, I might shock myself. XOXO

Thursday, September 4, 2008


I'm just women really have this much makeup? I can't believe it! I'm lucky to have enough to fit into my old Caboodle. Yes, I said Caboodle. I have a small makeup bag that I take with me when we travel. That's it! I'm just in shock. I love to watch Emily's videos. But really...this much makeup? XOXO

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

Labor Day

Yesterday turned into a whole lot of fun! We went out to the lake. Met a bunch of friends. And had a blast! What more could you ask for? There was sun, water, boats, food, drinks, and lots of friends!

It's crazy how quickly I'm adjusting to this life. And these people. Making lots of friends. And learning all the tricks. I'm glad. Because I'm really in love with T. It makes it a lot easier that his friends are quickly becoming my friends.

It also doesn't hurt that my bestie is dating T's good friend too! It's like all the stars have lined up. And I'm super excited about it. :)

Now, I need to figure out how to make this sunburn hurt less. And I should probably take a nap. I'm exhausted! A day of realxing has a way of doing that to a gal. XOXO

West Coast Fun!

We're out on the west coast this week. My bestie and I are planning some more shopping later. And our guys are working. That's just what our weekends are like. But at least they have a little down time. You know, like at dinner time.

For me, I really enjoyed the beach yesterday. It was beautiful! And in certain ways, I wish we could live out here. It's really beautiful! Even if our bfs don't like it. They're definitely "east coasters."

It's funny. My dad lives a few hours up the coast. As a kid, I was forced to visit him with my little brother. But we never got to come to CA. It's so beautiful! I would have traded all of my life to have come out here. But there is a lot of my childhood that I wish I could forget.

But on this trip, I'm just going to enjoy the sunshine, sand, and good friends. Isn't that half of the fun of traveling? I think so. :) XOXO

Crazy Ladies

This just might be my bestie's favorite book. Scratch that, I would say her 2nd favorite. I decided to take a shot at it. I'm not a big book reader. But hey, it can't hurt. Right?

It's actually pretty funny. And in ways, reminds me a lot of my own family. I was really close to my grandma. And my mom has always been way out there. So this book, it's providing so much entertainment for me. It's hilarious!

I guess this is my new schedule. Since T works from Tuesday-Sunday. It's a crazy schedule. And I'm not working. So it leaves a lot of down time to fill up. XOXO

The Middle of Nowhere

We're in the middle of nowhere TN. I'm not lying! And my bestie is off working out. Our bfs, they're working. What does that leave me to do? Go hungry! I don't know how to cook. And my bestie has this place stocked with all the yummy, cook from scratch, kind of food. Sucks for me...

Do people really know how to cook? Just wondering here. Because my mom never cooked when I was little. Actually, never cooked at all. We ate lots of "warm-up" type of food, or takeout. Fast food was our friend. Now, I have no skills in the kitchen. And my bestie is a great cook! What the hell? Maybe she can teach me something.

In the middle of nowhere. And we don't even have cereal. I wonder when these people are coming back. Or should I just venture out and see what's going on? I might find something to eat... XOXO

We're Home

We're home. And I don't quit remember much of the last 2 days. But Sunday was a lot of fun. The guys had a really busy weekend! I know my bestie and I are happy to be home too! It was a crazy weekend to be honest.

My bestie has been going through a lot. So it's nice to see how good her guy is. They have such a great relationship! Even if they're both busy. And it's complicated. And they live in 2 different time zones. But I do know they are very happy. And we all ended up on the lake yesterday. T and I, we slept until the late afternoon. But we still made it out to the fun. And lots of friends. And yummy food! It was a lot of fun.

T's at work right now. And I'm trying to figure out his house. More importantly, his washing machine. I have so much dirty clothes. And I need to finish unpacking my things. Because we're back on the road Thursday. How does my bestie do this? XOXO

Starting Out

I'm in the middle of MI. My bestie is taking a nap. Our boyfriends are working. Yes, I said our boyfriends. How weird is that? We're dating best friends...

And I'm taking a cue from my bestie. I'm starting a blog. She's had one for years. It's more like a website. Where she chats with her friends. She posts daily blog post. She even has videos of her and her friends, traveling and performing all over the place! Tons of pictures. And once a week she does a chat with us. So much fun!

I would post a link, but it's by invite only. So that defeats the entire purpose. Maybe I can talk her into starting a public blog. Here on blogger.

As for me, I'm traveling all the time! Well, over the last few weeks. T has asked me to travel with him. And to move in with him. Is that crazy? We met on July 19. And it took him a few weeks to track me down. But he has. And we're dating.

I've never been so happy. Even if none of my friends, except my bestie, are talking to me. And I left work, school, everything. Isn't that would love and life are all about. Taking chances. I hope this turns out well. I really do love T. XOXO
