happy 21st lil bro

IMG_3977
I can’t believe my “little” brother is already 21 today!
I mean, I know I’m only 3 years older than him so it’s not a huge gap,
but he was always my “little” brother in my eyes
(even though he’s towered over me for years and years).

This weekend we’re going to visit him at his school so we could
celebrate his 21st in the best way possible! 😉
Yayyyyy! I even have a half day on Friday!
Sadly, I just found out today that Michael has a
final & will not be joining us, but at least this
way someone is home with the kittys
(because of course we didn’t think
about who could be watching our kittys when
my entire family is up in Michigan haha).
Can’t wait to celebrate with him!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EDZABOO!!!!!! Have a fabulous birthday week!!!!!!!!!!!!! : )

Giving Thanks.

Yesterday I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family.
This year has gone by SO ridiculously fast, and through many ups and downs, I am grateful for everything that has come my way. Anything I thought I couldn’t get out of, I eventually found a way back on my feet. I’ve grown and learned so much through this year, and wouldn’t want it any other way.

As always, I am thankful for my loving family who is constantly there for me, my amazing friends, my fabulous home, and basically for God for giving me this wonderful life.

I am also thankful for these other {little} things in life that make me happy  like….

• the fact that I have a job!!!! {and that amazing African Cats wallpaper I have!!!!}

• my fun new hair autumn hair color that I am now in love with {I have also been living in that sweater — it’s amazing!}!

What I’m Wednesdays {Week 1}

So I thought it would be a fun to have a Wednesday feature, I thought of this one & I hope it works well. Yay!

What I’m….

Wearing ~ Love me my Swedish love Hjalmarsson v-neck & Sperrys : ]

Eating ~ always a plethora of goodness, the other night me & Michael had a super fancy pasta night, using the $48 sauce I got in my excellent Taste Trunk. It was absolutely fantastic!!! The pasta & the sauce were both delicious and I definitely tasted the quality difference between this and my usual on sale for $1 sauce from Target. : )

Listening to ~ I cannot stop listening to Avril’s “Rock n’ Roll”. I am SO EXCITED for her CD {along with Miley’s, Katy’s, Jesse J’s, & Eminem’s}. I am seriously ready to have these CD’s on repeat in my car for the next couple of months as they come out… YAYYYYYYYY! I also just so happen to love the rap single “23”, the tribute to Jordan’s, and even the music video makes me smile. Everyone’s hatin’ on Miley all the time now but I don’t care, I think she’s even more awesome than ever and this music video makes me laugh. That awesome Bulls jersey bikini thing is SO FRICKIN COOL. Needed to be said. And displayed. haha.

Looking forward to ~ along with all the wonderful other subscription services I subscribe to (which I will be starting to review again after a couple month hiatus!!!), I am also getting to try out the Phone Case of the Month! My phone is naked right now, only because I get so tired of my cases, I always want a new or different one, so changing them every month to a new cute designed case is something that I’m certainly looking forward to!! : )

Also, on a random note, I am REALLY trying this month to do every day/photo of the #FMSphotoaday challenge on Instagram for the month of October. Yesterday I started with my #SomethingColorful pic, and today the title was #Light. This is the light that wakes me up in the morning, the sun is soooo bright! (I also realize that I took this picture at 9am, trust me, I was up a lot earlier but this is when I had the chance to snap the pic before I ran off to catch my train!)

Love

Today’s photo of the day is “Love”. I picked a picture from last night, when me and the bf were sitting outside on our back deck watching a crazy show of fireworks for over 4 straight hours. The fireworks were seriously NONSTOP. It was insane! We had so much fun enjoying the beautiful night and amazing display of fireworks right from our own deck.
