When Life Gets In The Way

Hello.
Where has time gone?
We blink & the year is over.
At least that's how it seems with my life.
 
So lets catch up.
Back in January I had a sleep over with my sister, Haley & Ryne.
I loved that we we're all under my roof, in my room & I didn't have to tell them I would see them later. Waking up was fun. & a surprise breakfast from McDonald's while watching Frozen was a hit.
Even Dodger loved them sleeping over.
 
 
 
Josh & I had a date night in St. Augustine at The Ice Plant.
Each drink has the right amount of ice to dilute your drink the correct way.
The Florida Mule comes in the copper mug & when you order it you have to give them your id so they get the mug back. Apparently many mugs have been stolen for the copper or even the look.
I had the House Apply Cider which was delicious. We also had the best pizza you'll ever taste from Carmelos.

 
Who else is consumed by "Flappy Bird"?  I just downloaded the app Wednesday and have already made it through 18 tunnels! Its addicting, will make you angry, will give you anxiety, somebody please just teach this wide eyed bird to fly!
 
Salted Caramel Milkshake.
Enough said!
Steak & Shake.
Run now!
 
Josh hates it that my dogs watch him while he eats.
I'm sorry but they normally have better manners than that!
 
& finally I was able to meet my friend's new baby girl Elle!
I'm smitten.
The baby fever,
Oh the baby fever!
Someone just give me a baby please!


 
There's been so much going on in my life that I haven't even documented it.
Hello Darling Boutique is growing so fast.
I've been so exhausted that I talk in my sleep.
Josh started videoing me doing this as well.
I'm so thankful for such a busy life .
 
Today is also 16 months since I met the love of my life!
 
Here's to hoping I can keep blogging daily.
I miss it. I miss my followers. I miss being able to look back at what has happened.
 
Happy Thursday everyone!

Hello 2014

Happy 2014 lovelies!
 
 
I'm so excited for this new year.
Although I refuse to make any new years resolutions because lets me honest with each other here.
Those resolutions don't continue through out the year.
 

 
The clock strikes midnight!
 
 
J & I stayed with friends on NYE because we didn't want to drive the 30+ minutes back home with every one else way too early in the morning. So we sat by the bonfire, drank hot chocolate & margaritas, set off fireworks and had the best time ever.
 


So here's to you 2014. I cannot wait to see what you hold for this year.
I'm ready to tackle you with my favorite guy by my side.

But I believe you should know about this amazing website where you can rent books for more than 40% off normal bookstore prices. & they donate to an amazing organization! Or you can rent one of your own books & get paid by doing so!

Here are some perks from Campus Book Rentals :
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices

Its simple. Send them your book. They do all the hard stuff like renting the book out and you get paid!

The most inspiring thing about renting from Campus Book Rentals is they donate to Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an organization who helps children who are born with cleft palates and their families.

Be Blessed


Hello there!
 
Last night I experienced something I've never had happen to me in all my 28 years on earth.
 
I rushed home from work,
changed,
let the dogs out
&
headed to church to watch my niece sing in her Christmas play which I thought started at 6.
 
I hurried to park on the street {the only spot available without having to park in the garage},
grab my stuff,
noticed it was 5:57 and rushed inside.
 
As I was about to walk across the street I heard a man ask me if I'm going to church.
Of course I said yes then turned around to continue walking through the crosswalk until I heard him ask "WILL YOU PRAY FOR ME"
I've never had a random person on the street ask me this.
I had my phone, keys & wallet in hand
but it never crossed my mind that he would steal from me.
I walked back over to him
he held my hand
& I prayed.
He wished me a Merry Christmas and to have a blessed day
& we parted ways.
 
As I was walking inside I had tears in my eyes.
He doesn't know this but that blessed me more than he'll ever know.
 
My church is located in downtown & isn't the safest place to be.
There was a cop sitting in his car which is probably why I felt it was ok to pray with him.
& little did I know that the program didn't start until 6:30 so I had plenty of time to stop.
 
We're all so busy with our lives that we just need to slow down.
The world is so full of hatred.
 
Slow down & bless someone!

Birthday Shenanigans

This weekend was filled with celebrating my 28th birthday.
I swear I have the best boyfriend to ever walk the earth!
 
I was able to leave work at 4.
We headed straight to my niece's school to watch her be an angel in a Christmas play.
Then went to eat with friends.
 
Friday night I started to feel like the flu was hitting me.
I stocked up on Nyquil & Dayquil & was out for the night at 10:30.
Talk about getting old! ha
 
Saturday morning I had a photo session.
It was scorching hot where everyone else was iced in.
 
Then Sunday we headed to Orlando to Sea World to visit with the penguins.
Ever since our last visit I've become obsessed with penguins.
Mr. Popper's Penguins needs to be me!
 
When we arrived Josh motioned that we needed to get tickets at the "reservation" desk.
Above the booth was a sign about the penguin tour!
My first thought was "omg no way I get to touch these little babies and take pictures with them"
Then I had tears in my eyes.
 
We walked around to the meeting place, watched people feeing the seal lions then headed back for our tour.
We saw the nursery, freezer where all the food is kept, a map of the exhibit along with where all the eggs are laid. Right now there are 23 eggs the penguins are sitting on.
Then my heart exploded when we walked into Antarctica.
The tour guide allowed 3 penguins in this tiny area for us to touch & take pictures. 





 
This little fella walked over my feet then pecked at them. I seriously wanted to pick him up and bring him home with me.


Sunday could not have been more perfect.
 

 

We ended our night at the Huey Lewis & The News concert where I watched people my parents age dance to music I didn't even know!
One guy even fell asleep while his wife danced next to him!
