enjoy the moments

This weekend has been a roller coaster
beautiful weather
and a wonderful day with friends at the beach
a lazy day of movies and crafting
a great hiking day a state park near by 
and then news that i have feared for a long time
my grandmas battle with cancer
may no longer be a battle
as they have ran out of options to help her
so the past few days has been phone calls
back and forth
and crying and more crying

I have HOPE tattooed on my wrist
i got the tattoo with my mom for my grandma
she has been battling cancer for 15 years 
we have always been hopeful
and i am still going to be hopeful 
that a miracle can happen
and save the miracle that happened to me


HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABA!
Thank you for being the wonderful woman that you are
for taking me in and raising me as your own
The inner strength you have 
will always inspire towards
Despite the news this weekend has brought us
it can never stop us from praying or hoping


I love you!

Who knew..

Sometimes i think i am that person that is
living under a rock

who knew that Hulu
was so freakin amazing
really who would ever pay for cable 
when Hulu is around

I have watched a few things on Hulu in the past
but now i am addicted

Todays addiction was
The Voice
(( Fun show
 i am kind of sick of american idol
 so this is a good spin ))
I watched all that Hulu had of it
Hulu even told me to take a break after 3 hours

However while watching The Voice
Elenowen
was on singing for their lives
and they are just this super cute married couple
whom i now adore
and i am sad they didnt make it
but i will buy their cd

((This is the song they played on the show. Love it.))


So heres some tunes for your sunday :)

Do what YOU love

I feel like i have this weird inner battle of introvert extrovert
I love my alone time
and then i love dinner parties, game night, going to the club
I often say no to hanging out because i love being alone
but then I am often the one who organizes
and gets everyone together

Maybe this is normal.

Today i was supposed to go to Mudfest for the weekend
which was a scary commitment 
because there goes my whole weekend
sometimes i have a really hard time saying no
i want to make people happy

last night i totally said i would go
and as i was packing
i was like talking to myself
in my head of course
and said...

"Or you could have a me day/weekend 
and do your favorite things
-lake
-hodges state garden
-picnic
-driving range
-sex in the city marathon
-popcorn and pickles
-countless hours of internet loving
-craft time
-window shopping
-and more..."

So obviously now Mudfest sounded lame
why do i need to pay 40 dollas to get dirty 
and drive around in a truck for three days

So this weekend i intend to do all those things i love
take pictures of it all
and report back :)

:) the beach in Florida

Happy Memorial Weekend
and go do what you love!

Its a love hate thing

Truly i have a love hate relationship
with 
Mickey D's

I love the fries
my mouth waters for them
i am a sodium feen 
its a bit ridiculous
you would think i am pregnant 
the way i crave them
(im not)
then afterwards
i feel like i should work out for four hours
and fast from Mickey Ds for life

So Mickey D's and i compromised today
they brought the goods
 and i didnt have to work out for hours

Thank you Frozen Strawberry Lemonade




Look how cute the lemon guy is. 
aww <3

But really it was a great summer pick me up
it was blasted hot today
and this drink 
revitalized me
and i didnt feel like i was drinking toxic waste
(normal Mcdonalds outcome)

As my friend said
"It tastes like Summer"
(o chelsea)

Hats make me happy

I love that line from Under the Tuscan Sun
(which i watch over and over again)
when the older blonde character, Katherine says
"Hats make me happy"

So a while ago i was on the hunt for my summer hat
and success
i found it when i went home to Minnesota
figures it would be hiding 2000 miles away from me

Here it is:




Love it

Everyone loves a fedora

fedora-hats


Happy Saturday!

A little reminder

Thanks

Everyone needs a little reminder of the most basic things
love
peace 
be yourself
laugh often and love much
live with passion
follow your dreams
imagine peace
count your blessings

I would literally love a bracelet for each one of these saying

so go to the website and you can pick your color leather, 
the saying you want, 
and if you want studs or not 
and they have tons of different bracelet designs

This is my wish list so far :)


Love these necklaces too!

Daily Lessons #-27 Love all your life

Lately i had a tid bit of stupid drama in my life with some "friends"
and as much as it sucks 
because drama sucks
i learned something

I really want to go forth
and 
Love all my life

I just want to be nicer 
and kind to everyone
why talk bad about people
what motivates people to be mean
why do it?
no one likes to be talked about
so why talk about others
why make fun of people
why say something you cant back up 
or be willing to take a stand on

life is hard
we should all be here to lift each other up
not make life any harder

So thats my goal
no more gossip
no more drama

Just peace and love 

i just really want some hippie love
