Happy Fathers Day to my amazing dad, who has done more for me than I have ever deserved. I love you, dad! (photo from his birthday, also in the last month!)

Week in review: Got back in town late last Sunday from Erin’s beautiful wedding in North Carolina, and immediately jumped into buying a domain name and host for my websites! The process took a little longer than expected, but I am finally done (maybe need a few tweaks here and there). I also picked up an extra job and got caught up on summer classwork. But I’m excited for what I have in store for the blog. For now, a quick photo dump!

Wednesday Quirks [#3], wedding anniversary soon!

Hump day! Hurray. But I’m getting my booty workout in tomorrow, so I guess I’ll celebrate a day late.

Me right now- too much watermelon. source.

Just got finished grilling out and eating a delicious dinner of center cut pork chops, brussel sprouts, Kettle chips (Red Curry flavor), and oh-so-much watermelon. Jeremy has his pork chop grilling skills down to an art – I promise to get photos next time but completely devoured everything before I even thought about it. We were super hungry tonight. But what really got me was the watermelon. I grabbed a huge one for $3.99 at Fresh Market, along with the pork chops, and I think maybe I felt obligated to finish too much of it. haha. So now I’m sleepy with a watermelon belly.


 

Quirky/Weirdness Wednesday #3kiwi

  • I eat kiwis whole. Furry skin and all. According to the California Kiwifruit Commission, it’s completely safe to eat kiwi skin. unless you are allergic, of course. More fiber for me. 🙂
  • I hate waking up & moving without  a kick in the butt with caffeine. It gets a bit pathetic but I guess it’s how I’m wired…
  • Even weirder… I sleep better when I have caffeine. I recently cut caffeine for a month and had the WORST insomnia!
  • I have a nervous habit of picking at my cuticles on my thumbs.
  • In middle school and maybe some of high school, I had friends who called me “Buns”…. Because I was obsessed with nice buns.
  •  I got married next to dolphins at Marineland in St. Augustine, Florida. (Did I mention that I’m obsessed with dolphins and the ocean already?). Since our anniversary is coming up on the 15th, I figured I’d get this one in here. <3

B. Best Friend? See above! But outside of Jeremy, I am blessed with many amazing friends, not just one.

C. Cake or pie? meh… not a cake or pie person, usually.. But I have developed a love for some cake pops (they are slightly doughish in the middle & delicious)! I prefer brownies, choc. chip cookies, etc.

D. Day of choice? mmm… Friday evenings because I usually have the weekend & fun plans to look forward to.

E. Essential Item?  I guess a sketch/notebook for my flurries of random ideas. Continue reading
