story time.

true life: i signed my mom up for the bachelor. i described her as looking for love and a cougar. almost the truth. it's probably in the top 500 funniest things i've done! so, we're waitin' for a call from chris harrison! here's to gettin' a rose.

it's my birthday...

i can celebrate two days if i want to! it's no lie i love birthdays. i love celebrating. the birthday weekend started at lil vinnie's. this quaint little italian restaurant in the old city. it was so fun to be with good friends and laugh over some dang good food!

then on my birthday i celebrated with my family and my friends. my friends and i met at barley's, and of course i got the celebration ale. what else would you get on your birthday?! then the night ended with sassy ann's but that goes without saying!

my 23rd birthday was full of surprises--getting to see two friends unexpectedly, full of laughs, full of friends, full of celebrating, and full of wisdom! holla!

a tootin' night at toots.

the name can be deceiving. BUT it's a hole in the wall karaoke joint. my favorite kind of place! a little karaoke and a lot of laughs. we happened upon it spontaneously...we took a chance and it was great!! there are some videos, but that's for another here's to singing songs loudly and badly with a room full of strangers...the best way! holler!

three cheers for christmas.

it's officially christmas time. so of course i've been doing all things christmas... i've been listening to christmas music. been bundled up. wearing my christmas jammies. drinking tea. wrapping presents. and my personal favorite-watching christmas hallmark movies.

but christmas is really about a time of waiting. waiting for the arrival of the king...the one true king. i don't really like to wait, but i like waiting in this season of advent. i don't want to miss it. so here's to waiting!

'a merry christmas! long live the true king!' -father christmas.

since i'm waiting already...i'll be waiting for a hunky boy to join me under the tree. preferably ryan gosling or tim riggins. either one will do...i'm not picky!

thankful for pumpkin pie.

every year around thanksgiving, pumpkin pie makes me miss my dad. it is one of my favorite desserts, and it was my dad's very favorite. ever since i can remember we would make it together. it's such a simple recipe. he didn't really need my help to make it, but he always wanted my help. it's something i miss and cherish. for the past three years i still make him his pumpkin pie and eat a slice just for him! so, i'm thankful for pumpkin pie and the memories i cherish because of it.

'give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.'
