it's a rainy day

Why is the only constant in my life change?
Right when I feel like things are making sense, someone goes and throws a frozen Diet Mountain Dew (because they are really hard) through my perfectly structured life....
I'm trying to learn to dance in the rain but it's tough when your heart hurts and all you want to do is curl up in a ball when it's storming.  And since it's raining here today, it's just all too appropriate that there will be no dancin here today. 
I am aware that life is beautiful.  In all honesty, I love my life.  I have a job, I'm in grad school, I'm healthy, and my family and friends are amazing.  But the complicated part always screws things up. 

Sometimes I wonder why I let one bad thing drive my emotions but sometimes when my heart is heavy and my thoughts don't feel like they're connecting, it's hard to see the lovely other things that I have. 

Or when I think everything is going smoothly, it all changes so quickly.  I try hard to make the people around me happy but it's an epic fail when I'm told the opposite. 

How do you make your rainy days better, or learn "dance in the rain" metaphorically speaking? :)


lookin forward

I cannot wait for this summer.  To be able to spend endless amounts of time outside and with my friends and family, I can't express the excitement that I have!
my sisters and i running through the fire hydrant, yes, fire hydrant, in new hampshire.  we got so bored that the fire hydrant brought the most excitement.  ...oh the joys of family vacation...

hangin out with my pops.  going to garden and house tours of beautiful homes and playing tennis and spending time on his gorgeous back patio.  it's the little things...

here, with my cousins, in michigan.  this is what summer is all about...

me. a day on the boat. nuff said.

my sister sam and i, rockin the bright colors.  i can't wait for her to be home for the summer do silly activities with me.

my dad shotgunning a beer.  and by shotgunning i clearly mean pouring it all out and throwing it on the ground and yelling "1.8 seconds!!! can anyone beat that?!?!?!" he's a hoot.
spending time at the pool.  with my sisters.  relaxing.  i can't wait.
life is good in the summer.

stacey, kelly, and me.  on the tube.  seriously, that's the life right there. 
i'm in love with this picture as much as i'm in love with the life right in that picture.

i am so lookin forward to summer.


let's talk

Let's talk about the honest truth...

Do you immediately trust people
until they give you a reason not to...

Or do they have to build the trust up
by proving it to you?

How do you feel about trust in general?

Just wonderin...



monday again?

How is it already monday again?!
i was so excited to have NO plans this weekend and to just relax, make decisions as they come n go, do what i want, and go with the flow. 
and that is just what i did.

of course the only two pictures i took all weekend were of liquor and beer, but somehow that totally fits.

friday. i got off work, and went straight for happy hour. 
and a happy hour it was.
after a few drinks while the sun was still up, we decided to skip outta the bar for a little while and head to vernon lanes and have some bowling fun.
i know i've bragged before about my bowling game, however, i believe that was a fluke. 
i now suck at bowling. sadspice.
after bowling, we went baaack to the bar until it was bed time.

saturday. it was gorgeous outside.
billy and i went and ate lunch outside by the river and enjoyed some fresh air.  we drove all around louisville with the windows down and music blarin.  there's nothing like springtime.
we came across a little putt putt place so putt putt we did.
i apologize for not taking a picture, but it was beautiful outside and billy sure is cute.

saturday night was so much fun.
we cooked out at my friend cat and curts house and played drinking games.
have you ever played the game baseball... kinda like beer pong only different?  well, it's real fun.  and if you wanna play, i'll let ya know the directions, even though after two games, i'm still not real sure how to play?
but we won!!  and i love to win. :)

ohhh yea, and look at this 12 pack!!  do y'all have 12 packs like this where you're from? because this is the first time i've seen one and i looove it!  it's so cute. 

and it keeps getting better.
we ate qdoba for breakfast brunch lunch and then cat, kelly, and i laid outside in the sun for hours and hours and painted our nails and had lovely girl talk.
i'm a lucky gal to have such wonderful friends.
so for this weekend, i'd have to sum it up by saying this:

i hope your weekend was fantastic and full of laughter and love and everything in between!
