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

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

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

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

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
