I've come to cherish my old blog entries... it's kind of like reliving moments in my life, like my blog has become a semi-diary. When I originally started blogging, I did it to share my interest & exploration in makeup, branching off into style and fashion, and bits and pieces of my life. This blog is like another piece of me. Not just a makeup blog. But just my own adventure in life. Though I don't update as much as I'd like, I'm glad to have captured some moments in my life through my blog. Reading old thoughts bring them up again to the present. I'm hoping & planning on writing more. Personal stuff, sometimes venting, and of course makeup and style entries.
Anywhoodles, just a quick blurb into my thoughts at the moment :]
November 21st was Mikie and my 2 year anniversary. As many of you know, I'm still in college (only a little under a month left WOOOOOT). I work and go to school but as y'all may know from experience, college students don't make a huge amount of money. Mikie works hard & has been supporting our lifestyle while I try my best to chip in what I can. I never wanted to be reliant on someone else & moving out of my parent's place before graduating was unexpected but I wouldn't change it if I had it to do over again.
Meeting Mike was unexpected and a blessing. It was so wonderful to meet a person who was my other half. To have someone I wanted to share my life with because I generally am a private person (I've found out the hard way to be very very careful with trusting others). We complement each other so well. Although we come from very different backgrounds, what the other person lacks, the other seems to make up for. Sure, sometimes it's hard & painful but I don't think strong relationships are formed by not dealing with hard times. We have misunderstandings & arguments but in the end, our love hasn't faltered. He's still the rock in my life & I haven't had someone to ground me my whole life.
We've had some amazing and joyful times the past 2 years. We've dealt with a some poopie but sometimes that can't be helped (some shitty people out there...). Life is a learning process & we've definitely learned a lot... Underneath it all, we love and respect one another. We want the best for each other & that's just one thing I love about him. That he's caring, loving and supportive.
At the end of the day, I'm so happy and at peace knowing my best friend will be there for me.
For our anniversary, we decided to keep it low key. With the holidays right around the corner, we didn't have much wiggle room in our budget. But we definitely made the most of it!
Mikie is originally from Fort Worth but he lived in New Hampshire for quite a number of years... this is where his love for all New England teams began. If some of y'all can tell in most pics of him, he's got a thing for the Celtics, Red Sox & Patriots... there's definitely no room in his heart for any Dallas teams (pity pity). He also got a taste for delicious & fresh seafood, namely lobster. From what he tells me, the lobsters up north are huge & sell at a similar price as the dinky ones down here.
We had lobster earlier this year for the 4th of July & since then, I've had a hankering for some! We cooked lobsters at home, which was a delightful treat! It was very low key but we are excited for the upcoming year where we both will be bringing in some good money & we'll be able to do more then :] We're wanting to check out this place in Maine. We plan on going sometime next summer after busy season.
Okie dokie, enough of my babbling, I'll let the pics speak for themselves.

My man making lobsters :] I was playing with our new DSLR camera. We got it from QVC.com a month or so ago. Still having some difficulty with the learning curve but I'm learning :]
Juicy is excited too... she loves lobster lol
It's nice to be cozy at home eating some messy seafood :]
I got Mike a set of Burberry Brit. I love my women's version & Mike has taken a huge liking to the men's version whenever we go to the mall. I love the holiday sets from Nordstroms. This one came with the full-size cologne, after shave & body wash at a great price.
Mikie got me this pretty Swarovski pen
The night we met....
And 2 years later :]
