Hey there, nice to meet you! I'm 26, engaged, and live in the Midwest. I love good books, bright lipstick, and spending ridiculous amounts of time on Instagram and Pinterest. Let's be friends!

Wowza, that was a LONG hiatus!

Alright so I'll be shocked if anyone is reading this, because it's been ages since I've written anything. I have my reasons; some good, others not so good. They include:

*Having a seizure, going to the hospital, and a whole crapload of medical tests (I'm fine now though, they figured out that a medication I was taking caused it.)

*Getting engaged! The best birthday present I've ever received :) Justin and I are so happy together!

*Dealing with chronic eczema all over my body, to the point where some days I can barely move without my skin itching and hurting...trust me when I say it sucks.

*Hosting a tacky tea party for my birthday...oh the outfits! oh the crazed dancing!

*Trying to keep up in school

*Lack of inspiration and motivation

So there you have it, the past 4 months of my life in a nutshell.
I'm going to try really hard to post more often. Maybe I'll call it my new year's resolution?

Isn't it obvious?

Hey all, sorry I've been gone for what seems like forever....I'm gonna try to be on here more frequently!

Now for your reading pleasure....an actual conversation that took place between Justin and I this afternoon:

Justin- "My life flashed before my eyes!"

Me, totally not paying attention to what he said- "As soon as we got in the car, the smell hit my nostrils....DOG FOOD!"

Here's a nice photo to go along with the conversation....no, it wasn't taken today, but pretend it was :P

Alright I'll try to be back sometime this weekend...tootles!

Long time no blog!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still here! My old laptop quit working a few weeks ago, but I got a new netbook yesterday so now all is great again! :D

I'll do a real update with pictures and everything soon, but I start classes again tomorrow so I'll wait until I actually have something interesting to show and tell!

Ahh, it feels good to sit down...I worked 9-5 today. Now I have 2 days off!

Also, I have 2 pictures to share :)

First, the usual outfit photo...this is what I wore to work today. I LOVE this skirt...it's purple and has a peacock feather pattern on it!

Now for my amazing garage sale find....a Care Bear cassette player! Who cares if I no longer have any cassette tapes, this thing is adorable!

Haha...maybe I'll find some Barbie tapes to listen to on it :P

Feeling kinda....sneezy!

I'm dealing with allergies at the moment....my nose is all stuffed up. Boo!

I went with Kaity to Fort Madison again this past Sunday. We painted the closet in her classroom BRIGHT GREEN! It was called Mantis Green, but I've taken to calling it Kermit the Frog Green + Nickelodeon Slime Green. What do you think?

Climbing, climbing....

Kaity and I stopped on the way home for this one...I wonder what the people driving by thought? haha
