Long lost Monday edition

Dear Monday- I went back to work today for you. I was actually extremely productive. 
Dear Summer- You were great but I'm happy to see you gone 
Dear Work- is it weird that I am excited to see you again?? 

That's it for now!!!

So, I haven't written a blog in quite a while so I thought I would write one about my loving pet. Blue is her name. 

When I was in college, this little cat got into the hands of a roommate, my best friend and I. We took her to the vet, and he said she looked healthy and everything was fine. So, then we took her to the humane society because we had no intention of keeping her. They told us that if we left her there that she would be put to sleep. My roommate convinced us to keep her till she was old enough to be given away. 

That was in 2007

She is probably one of the best things to happen to me! I love her :) 

She use to be SO little!!

She loves to get into places

This is why she is called " Blue"- Her eyes

Look at all that hair. She is NOT fat!

We have a bird feeder outside the apartment window for her

6th Edition

Dear Monday- Only several more of you until school/work starts 

Dear Spaghetti Night- Excited for Anthony's true spaghetti tonight. Get to spend time with some fun people 

Dear Tennis- I really enjoy you!! I need to buy a new racket though, but I am slowly starting to learn new shots vs. just playing tennis 

Dear Roommate- I am really excited that you are coming back in a couple weeks. Don't get me wrong, I know you love being in El Paso with the man. But I miss you!!! I miss our dinner nights and I miss Pei Wei with you!!! I miss joking about weddings etc with you!!

Dear Netflix- You are SO damn addicting. Its retarded. 

Dear Running- Grrr... you are slowly but surely becoming fun and the runs are slowly getting longer. Almost up to 12 minutes!!

Oh Pinterest- How easy it is to kill time in the middle of the day with you!

So, Since its the summer and I have an unlimited amount of time on my hands I have been doing several things during the middle of the day. Improving my Tennis skills, Watching Greys on Netflix, and playing on pinterest even more than usual. (Its really sad to be honest).  Several things I have found on pinterest that interest me!

I have lived in sevearl different places, and think this would be awesome to make.

 **Sappiness Warning**

Its been almost 9 months, and I still feel this way whenever I see Anthony.

 Thinking a little too far ahead.. But Anthony LOVES Disney World so I am sure he would really enjoy these sweatshirts.

Never thought about painting strips on a wall like this.

TOTALLY happening for TCU football this year!!

 So, I saw both movies. I saw Ted  on date night. I can honestly say I didnt pay attention to one bit of the movie. I had a horrible  migraine.
Magic Mike- HORRIBLE MOVIE. Probably the WORST filming and "Plot" I have ever seen in a movie. But did I go see it twice (Early bird prices the first time, and then the second someone had a gift card). Channing Tatum is absolutly gorgeous!

July 4th

July 4th has always been held a special place in my heart.

While growing up, we lived in Asia for 10+ years. Moving around was not exactly the easiest thing. We moved around every 4 years. But there was one consistant thing, Pawleys Island, South Carolina. We use to go there every summer for July 4th. We would rent a house for 2-3 weeks, while another family had their house for the same time period. Friends and Family would come visit and it was always so much fun. The friends were always friends that our families have made while living around the country, and it was usually the only time we got to see them all. For the last 3 years, we haven't made the trip back. Several things have happened, includng the passing away of the mother of the other family we consistantly went with. (Story for another time)

This year, I am hoping to start a new tradition. I am going to run a 5K on every July 4th. Regardless of where I am. I think it will be fun. This year, my Mother and Father are both going to join in. It should be very exciting.  

What is everyone else doing for the 4th?

Betsy and Andrew. Betsy passed away in November 2003

The house that I called home every July 4th

Painting is never something that has seemed like a fun idea to me. Painting a room, a picture, a wall. Just doesnt seem to excite me. But there were two days that, I painted an entire bedroom (With the help of anthony) and went to a Painting with a Twist Party for a suprise 30th Birthday.  (I  have always actually wanted to try a painting with a twist party just because it seemed like a social thing to do)

Both were actually alot more fun that I predicted!!

Will update more later!~
