Take Your Baby by the Hand

Yesterday I spent a couple hours in bed after work with some weird bug. Andy brought me Kneaders & I soon realized how much some solid food and rest can do for a girl (one of those “duh” moments). Shortly after I was up and at it around the house. The next 4 weeks will be a bit chaotic around here because it is the end of the semester. Having my home in a good state should contribute to the fight for sanity during finals.

I’d say I’m ‘trying to get my wardrobe organized‘… but lets be real, when am I not trying to get my wardrobe organized?? It’s a year round, never-ending thing. All of my girlfriends know what I’m talking about… They’ve all been over for bags of clothes that my ass outgrew or the 6 shirts I bought because ‘they match my shoes’  (that I don’t need & that look exactly alike). But sometimes you’re left with some gems & those clothes are just too pretty to keep hidden in the closet — which is why the clothes rack was invented. Mine is coming along and I am quite pleased with it. Someday when I’m not too ghetto to buy the wooden hangers I will. But that day is not today.

I hit a wall at about 11:30 and that’s when I found Andy in the kitchen. He had been setting his computer up for work & finally got his speakers to work. Wang Chung was blasting & you could tell he was trying so hard not to break out in a full on dance (he was doing the slow & discreet foot shuffle while his arms swung back n’ forth a bit. hilarious)

Next thing you know we’re dancing in the kitchen to ‘Dance Hall Days’ while he twirls me around in my painting/cleaning clothes & sings along to every word. We almost made it through the whole song but our asses are out-of-SHAPE (& we both needed a drink)

We of course played Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd  & Can’t You See by the Marshall Tucker Band. I’m convinced these are the moments that true love is found, over & over again. Happy Friday sweets, I hope you take the time to dance with someone you love this weekend. Even if it’s just a bit of shufflin’ & swinging of the arms. It’ll feel good, I promise.

“Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.”

Kahlil Gibran

Blackie-Chans Debut

Today in class I learned how to throw baseballs instead of softballs while I interview someone. I also learned how gorgeous it is everyday at 4:15 (right after class) from the parking garage. The perfect opportunity to take a picture of my favorite tree on our street arose, so I had to share. Then I came home & expressed my crazy craving for Olive Garden – So we went, of course. After dinner we went grocery shopping & swooped some essentials.

One of those essentials was our first pet, Blackie-Chan the fish. I adore him, and I adore my cute boyfriend for being just as excited as I am (or at least pretending to be). He’s such a good boy, he doesn’t even bark. We love him.

Then I dove into this months ‘O’  magazine & a full glass of vino. Oh, and expressed my ADHD on my nails, by removing yesterdays color & changing to this..

Letters: ‘Did You ‘Ear About Van Gogh?’

I’m always for a little twist on holiday style. Valentines day is so soon, and I can’t wait to spend it with the love of my life. Sending you love tonight, readers. Thank you. Until next time, xoxo B

Ideal/Realistic

I hope your new years kiss was as passionate as this one. This year I can proudly say mine can definitely hang with these two lovebirds. (you’re probably rolling your eyes thinking, ‘Oh well, good for you.’) I’ve never had an amazing new years kiss, so I feel this years was well deserved. Anyway, this smooch is ideal but far from realistic. Ps. Sorry for making you throw up in your mouth a little bit mom (& boyfriends siblings) I love you, XOXO

By the way, I wrote this quick like a bunny after work today because I am having serious withdrawals from ya’all. It’s a good thing that blogging doesn’t have any negative effects (not usually, at least) or I’d be trouble. I have loved hearing from you while I take this little break to get my feet on the ground (& all of our shizzad off of it). Amazing kisses, a new home, & the best readers.. What more can a girl ask for? Thank you…

‘For Nana’

‘You start with nothing, you work with something, and you do it together.

I just cried, and cried, and cried… My grandma just asked if I needed some nyquil. No, I’m okay grandma, I’m just bawling over a strangers wedding. (Watch all the way through. The beginning is a bit overwhelming but it’s worth it)
