Happy New Year!

Hi! I hope your NYE and NYD were wonderful. 🙂

On Monday night when I blogged I said that I would be adding something else to my current Manicure for NYE. Here’s what I added. It didn’t turn out as well as I would’ve liked because A) I’ve never done an ombre manicure before and B) ombre is HARD with a chunky glitter…it can get messy and go where you don’t want it.

So anyways, my New Years Eve was really fun! I spent the day with Kasey, and we had so much fun! We went to a really cute restaraunt for lunch and shared a tiny bowl of pasta and then we got desserts, coffee, and iced tea. It was the sweetest date I’ve ever been on! Then we went to a friend’s house and all of our friends and us played board games. After that, we went to a pizzeria for dinner and then headed back to Kaseys house for the rest of the night. We watched Kick Ass 2 and then went to watch the countdown show for midnight. It was so fun and Kasey was officially my first NYE kiss…. 🙂

On NYD, I spent the first half of the day relaxing and not doing much while Kasey was at work. Then we went over to one of his family friend’s house for a big hangout and DELICIOUS dinner. It was pretty fun! After that Kasey and I went home, watched some TV, he went for a run and I did pilates, and then I came home to just relax and have a long night’s sleep.

Today has been a great day as well. Today is my baby sister’s third birthday. I woke up kind of late but then I went straight to her room and spent a few hours with her, ate lunch with her and my mom, and then went for a run! I am not a runner. I never have been. I’ve always wanted to be a runner but it is literally the hardest thing for me and I can’t run even a straight mile. However I just have to practice and keep at it and I know that so this time I’m going to really try to push myself to be able to run normal distances and for some easy exercise. So after my run, I went to my room and deep cleaned everything. I normally keep things clean every day but I get bad at keeping things sanitized, which is more important in my opinion. I get lazy with sweeping and mopping and washing my bedding and such. So I did all that while listening to some music and now I’m here! I’ve really enjoyed today so far, and I’m following one of my NY’s resolutions really well today. It is to never waste a day. Although today is my baby sis’s birthday and there’s not much to do and I’m not wearing makeup or going anywhere, I still did some really productive things today. So that makes me feel good.

This weekend as usual I don’t have many plans. Tomorrow I am spending some time with Kasey and then we are all having Morgana’s birthday party. Saturday I’m working a 9 hour shift and Sunday I’m working an 8 hour shift. So I won’t have much time to do anything exciting. I will be doing my nails tomorrow and probably again on Sunday. I will be back after the weekend to tell you my plans for the week and how life is going!

Have a blessed day, see you Monday.

Hi!

I hope you all have had a wonderful year! Thank you all so much for following me and keeping up with me. It means a lot to me that as wishy-washy with my blog as I’ve been, quite a few of you have stuck around to read what I have to say!

My weekend was somewhat slow, but definitely good. On Saturday I painted my nails. The design I chose was for my friend Sierra, who suggested it when I asked what she thought I should do. I didn’t end up liking it very much. The color I actually own least of is pink…which is strange…but anyways, I think this design would have been cute with a baby pink, but I don’t have one. The pink that I chose is Peach Daiquiri by Essie. I do not like this polish. It is too runny and then goes on in layers that quickly get too thick. The cross I did didn’t come out too well either. Anyhoo, here’s the picture.Image

That day I just relaxed, went to work, and spent some down time. On Sunday I worked 9-5 and had a somewhat of a hard day, but when I thought about the plan He has for me and how much He loves me…. I felt so much comfort and happiness and I felt okay again. I realized it was just a challenge to keep my strength fresh and growing. So later that day my brother took me to run an errand, and afterwards, he took me to his new house for dinner. I am so proud of my brother (who is 9 years older than me). He has his own little family and a nice, beautiful house. It was so fun to see what he’s done for himself! I love my brother to pieces.

Sunday night I painted my nails for New Years! I have a picture of how they looked last night and today, but after I write this post I am going to actually go add some other stuff to them and take a new picture that will be up on Thursday. Here is how they turned out at first! I used just a normal white, and the blue that I posted about in the past; Lots Of Lux by Essie from their New Years 2014 collection. </p>IMG_3423<
I'm excited to add something extra to them! Tomorrow for New Years Eve, I'm going to spend the day with my boyfriend, relaxing, enjoying our last day of the year together, and that evening we will probably hang out with family and family friends until the New Year!

I almost forgot to tell you about today…

Today was such a wonderful day. My boyfriend randomly decided to take today as a day to pamper and spoil me. When he picked me up this morning he took me to a surprise breakfast at our favorite little Cafe with crepes. The day was spent wonderfully, relaxing, laughing, having a great time. Then he took me to the store and put me in the cookie aisle, told me to look at the cookies and pick a few, and then he returned, brought me around the corner, and surprised me with a HUGE vase of beautiful roses. They were the most beautiful roses or flowers he’s ever given me so far. Afterwards, he took me to get my favorite smoothie in the whole world, and then home to laugh and relax some more. Tonight we tried to go to dinner but it was so packed, we couldn’t get in in time. So after we tried going to a sit down place, we just ended going to another one of my favorite cafe’s for some soup and a sandwich. It was such a lovely day and it reminded me of how blessed I am to have this man in my life that loves me so much. And of course I love him so much…so much. As cheesy as it sounds, I never thought in my life I could ever love someone this much.

And on that note, I’ll leave you for the year! See you next year. I hope everyone has an amazing and safe New Year’s Eve and New Years Day. It’s been a great year…have a blessed night.
