• Keeping Things Fresh

    A couple of posts ago, I wrote about my boyfriend and I being “that couple” and the responce was overwhelming! Needless to say we are still that couple and I started thinking about all of the things we do for each other that keep us that way. It’s almost been 1 year and we haven’t stopped trying to keep things “fresh” since day 1. I really enjoy that we BOTH make such an effort in our relationship. Most of you know prior to this relationship I’ve been in nothing but terrible ones, ones that involved me doing everything and geting nothing in return. I can’t even describe how differntly things…

  • We are “that couple”

    Happy Friday everyone! So this post is not really too exciting but something has been bothering me for a week or so now, and that is being told by many people that my boyfriend are I are “that couple”. You know, that couple, the ones that are inseparable, can’t keep their hands off each other, and just love being around each other…yep that’s us. And for a little while there, I was bothered and didn’t want to be “that couple”. It was almost like we were being shamed because we enjoy each other so much. But then I started thinking and I was like, you know what, I LOVE being…

  • New year, new me?

    I feel like every “new  year”, it’s the same old posts, making plans/goals, and deciding to be a “new you”. Well this year, I’m not really trying to be a “new me”. I mean, I like who I am, and lets face it, after 35 years I’m probably not changing too much. Do I have goals I want to achieve, yes, but that won’t make me a “new me”. So now that the holiday’s are over, things can kind of get back to normal around here. School is starting up again and so isn’t my first field placement in my grad school program. I’m feeling like I’m going to be…

  • Merry Christmas & a 1 year AAA membership giveaway!

    **This contest is now closed** *Sponsored post with AAA. All opinions are my own. I can’t believe tomorrow is December 16th! This year is going by so quickly and with Thanksgiving just behind us, I still have so much to be thankful for! One of those being my lovely boyfriend whom I just celebrated 8 months with and I literally could not be happier. Have you put your holiday decorations up yet? I did this the other day and it’s been rather nice sitting and looking at my tree and the festive décor. This weekend it will be time to decorate my boyfriend’s house because I can’t wait any longer!…

  • 4 ways to shop for kids this holiday season

    Let’s back up for a second…when did I become someone that writes about “kid-friendly” things? I’d say for the past 7 months… And no I didn’t have any babies! 🙂 However, my wonderful boyfriend does have two children whom I spend a great deal of time with and it’s actually been friggen’ awesome!! I now get to do all the fun kid stuff and actually have kids with me! Which brings me to this post. I can’t believe that today I was actually looking at a Black Friday flyer and deciding whether or not it is worth getting up and heading to Target on Black Friday. I am not a…

  • 7 things I’ve learned living alone

    It’s been almost 7 months that I’ve been living “alone”, I use that loosely since I spend a lot of time at my boyfriends house 😉 Anyways, occurred to me that even though I am only home a few days a week I have really learned a lot about myself while living here. I thought I might put into words how having my first apartment has affected me, before I go and move in with my boyfriend eventually. I go through A LOT of toilet paper!! Does anyone else feel like they are blowing through toilet paper? Cooking for one is no fun! I hate cooking for myself, which has…

  • Top 5 Favorites

    I was tagged by my girl Lindsay @ The Flynnigans to share some of my top 5 favorites, which you’ll see below.  This tag was created by Hannah from A Tiny Girl’s Big World. She wanted to create a tag that would allow a little bit of an insight into the writer of their favourite blog. The idea of the tag is: “There are a series of topics and you have to answer each one with 5 answers (Only once in your post can you add a sixth if you’re really stuck on a particular topic). This way, your readers have a chance to find out a little more about you and…
