Blogger Challenge Day 3,4, and 5

So I realize I am behind by a few days on my challenge, but I promise I have a good reason!….

My boyfriend adopted a cat/kitten he’s about a year so he is still young enough to be a kitten but not really haha. He adopted him on Sunday of last week but we just got to take him home this last Wednesday which was the 5th and also supposed to be day 3. Buuuuuuut as you could have guessed I became a tad preoccupied with the new baby in my life! Don’t worry, many pictures will be posted he is adorable!!

So I decided to combine the last three days into one!

Day 3: Quote of the day:

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I’m possible!”

This is my favorite quote because it was said by my all time favorite person Audrey Hepburn! And it’s just so true and clever ! This quote is actually hanging on a canvas in my bathroom so I get to see it every single day!

Day 4: Top 5

Day 5:Most Loved Possessions

A few of my most loved possessions would be my Turtle Pillow Pet, my promise ring, and my jewelery box .

My pillow pet I have had since I was 16, I got it as a birthday present from my cousins who used to live in Idaho and have just recently moved to Portland, Oregon. It is one of the mini pillow pets and I take him every where… just ask my boyfriend, he would love nothing more than to throw it away but I love it!

Last year for Christmas my boyfriend got meΒ  beautiful promise ring after we went through a rough patch and had to spend some time apart to work on ourselves, it means the world to me because every time I put it on I remember how strong we both became and how we were able to come back together to share the love we have.

When I was young, like super young and I had just started to learn about jewelery and I got my first pair of earrings my grandmother gave me a gorgeous wooden jewelery box with a heart shaped piece of glass on the top, I have always used this box and never bought another one because this one means soΒ  much to me My grandmother has a box that is larger than mine but they came together and she gave me the smaller box.

So there’s three more days from the 12 day blogger challenge! Tomorrow, Day 6: What am I currently Reading?

End of the Beginning

So here begins the beginning of the end of my last few days of my freshman year of college. The end of living in the dorms, sharing a shower with 50 other girls, eating the bland dining hall food. The end of living across the hall from my best friends, being surrounded by people I know, people who are in the same position I am in; freshman year. By far the most difficult, stressful, exciting, and the most fun year of my life. I have met so many amazing people, done so many new things. I started this blog, never thought I would do that in my life, and I love it. I love this blog. I also love my boyfriend. This year started out rough for us but I have confidence that that rough patch was the end of our rough patch.
This year I got to fall in love with him all over again.

I moved out of my parents house; granted I will be living there over summer, but this will be the last summer I live with them. Though it is sad to think about how grown up I am… I am also excited to start being an adult, living in my own apartment, grocery shopping, cleaning, budgeting. Yes, I know they still pay for a lot of the things I have to pay for but I am starting to cut loose from that, slowly but I am. I love my parents and they have taught me a lot, so have my friends, new and old, so has my boyfriend. I learned that you can’t just quit on something you love because it gets hard, you have to work to make something happen the way you want it to.

This year was a year I will never forget, I am so thankful that I was lucky enough to be able to have an opportunity like this one and I will never forget my freshman year.

2 Years of Love

A little bit more than two years ago I saw the love of my life in a hall way in my old high school. As soon as I saw him I knew I needed to meet him, as a junior I was wondering why I had never seen this guy before… how had I missed such a cute face!? After seeing him I talked to my friends about the cute boy and it turns out all of my friends know him in one way or another and I am sitting there shocked and confused as to why I have never met him!

After not so subtly stalking him on Facebook and in real life, I mean finding his car in the school parking lot and parking near him everyday for a month, I finally convinced my friend to help me get to know him. Little did I know that my friend Annie had been talking about me with him and so had Amy… He knew who I was and thought I was cute! OMG but how did he know who I was?

He had seen the pictures my friends had posted on Facebook of our girls day in Seattle, and he saw me in the pictures and asked Annie about me!

After I did some real good stalking some more Annie finally made a move for me. She stole his phone in class and texted me on it joking about how I had parked right next to him. After that he had my number and we started texting and then started hanging out with other friends for a while. Then may 24th was Senior Skip day, he was a senior not me, and he asked me to skip class with him and go to the Woodland Park Zoo with him… you know like a date πŸ™‚
So we went to the zoo and had an amazing time, it was so much fun I never wanted it to end, but it did and right before we left the park Ian asked me to be his girlfriend and I said yes. And we have been happy ever since. And in no way am I saying that in order to get the man of your dreams you should stalk him… because even though it worked out for me there was a period where Ian was creeped out but I pushed through that and because he has a great sense of humor he got over how weird I am and it all worked out.002

We forgot to take pictures at the zoo but these adorable pics were taken a weeks or so after the zoo
