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

Shall We Dance?

Tonight I decided to play nice with Tofu & make a teriyaki tofu bowl for dinner. It was my first time handling tofu, so I wasn’t quite sure how it would turn out. I pan fried it, and followed these instructions. It is definitely something you need to be patient with, if you rush it then it burns the outside & makes it oily. I haven’t been cooking dinner on nights that Andy works late, but I decided I need to do it even when he is gone. He doesn’t like tofu anyway, so it was a good little dinner for me, myself, and I.

After dinner I indulged in some trashy reality tv (Mob Wives, Teen Mom 2, T.I. & Tiny, just to name a few). Tomorrow is my day off and I don’t have any homework tonight. So I decided to skip the cleaning, studying, and reading for the night and just relax.

I’ve been trying to keep my nails natural, but I love nail polish too much. I am itching for Spring and pastel colors are my favorite right now. I tried this new pattern, which was super easy. The pink coat was the first one I did. Then I did the blue on top a couple of hours after. I wanted to make sure they were completely dry before I added the next coat, if not they tend to bubble. I didn’t use tape because I didn’t have any at home — But I didn’t have a problem keeping a steady hand. What are some of your favorite colors lately?

I want to end on a more serious note tonight. I’ve seen some videos of kids with the genetic disease called Progeria, meaning “prematurely old.” I feel like a lot of people don’t understand what the disease does — and that these children are simply trying to live a normal life. I saw this video and it truly touched my heart. By far one of the best I have seen. I hope you have the same feelings towards it.

All my love, B

Take A Step Into My Office

Today I woke up in an awesome mood & I was ready to work. It’s been really busy, so my day through Instagram is the best you’re going to get. I have some studying to do and I need to run some errands as well. I hope you’re all having a beautiful Tuesday! It’s gorgeous here in Logan, has been all week. If I had a dog, I’d walk it (or even a cat… ya I’m ‘that girl’, don’t judge me) Anyway, check out this song that I can’t stop playing. Dance around your house, jump on the bed, live a little. Everyone is always so serious. All my love until next time, xoxo Bee

A zen kind of morning

You know you have a nail polish problem when you touch up your nails and want a new look an hour later..

Lists run my world. This weeks is not messing around.

I decided we should have something other then tonys pizza & beer for dinner (classy, I know). Tonight I made baked chicken, garlic potatoes, corn, and steamed carrotsl. I always have way too much meat leftover at dinner, and Andy can never have enough. We balance each others plates out perfectly.

I worked, napped (I know, I’m spoiled), did laundry, cooked a delicious dinner, completed my first assignment for class tomorrow, and am now ending the day with my best friend and love of my life. Can I get a hell ya? Or a ‘thank you universe’ is suffice ♥

Tomorrow… First day of school, cause’ momma didn’t raise no fool. XOXO

Ps. My mom is funnier then your mom
