Happy Fathers Day to the best!
So happy that I could put a smile on my dad’s face today by giving him the Levi’s jacket he has been wanting for so long, but didn’t want to spend money on something for himself.
Daddy, you deserve the best always because you have been such an amazing role model in my life and to other people. You think of others before yourself and are always looking toward the positive in every situation. You and Mommy taught me all the good things in life and how to be a great person. You are always loving, kind, supportive, and understanding.
You deserve so much more, and I wish I could get you more, but this will do for now.
I’m so happy I got to spend this weekend with you <3
Love you forever and always,
Your baby girl <3>
I definitely have the best parents in the world <3
Sooo, Joel and I moved to a basement apartment. My mom and dad love to come over and have dinner with us (I mainly think that because we have a huge kitchen and thats what makes my mom want to cook here haha). And my mom likes to bring over enough food to fill up the fridge so that we don’t have to buy food for weeks, literally.
I’m just so overwhelmed with how amazing my parents are! They bring over anything I need to make me feel comfortable here. It amazes me how much they will do for their children, even when they barely have anything for themselves. But thats how my parents always were, and I guess I’m just realizing it now that I’m older and can see it.
I love them so much, I can’t even describe how happy they make me.
I want to do something nice for them, but I don’t know what! Their 25th wedding anniversary is coming up in November, so perhaps I will organize a surprise party for them and make a huge collage of photos of them throughout the years? Its an idea for now.
Love you Mommy and Daddy, forever and always!
30 Day Challenges
I feel motivated right now to do the 30 day squat challenge… and while I’m at that, I’m going to do a push-up and crunch challenge, too… Hopefully that will get me good results within in next 30 days. I also will try to do cardio, like jump rope and perhaps running up and down the stairs, depending on how I feel.
I think I will start tomorrow since its already late tonight :)
Wish me luck! I hope I can stick to it! LOL
I can definitely say that I have the best one.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend <3>
Luck had my back this weekend
Thanks to crazy Steph (no, not me), I got into the club. I was wearing sneakers and the door guy was telling me I can’t come in with sneakers, so as she distracted the guy, she slipped off her flats and passed them back to me, and the door guy was confused and was asking where I would leave my sneakers, and I’m like “Coatcheck, duh! You have coatcheck right?” HAHAH suckassss!
Then on Sunday Joel and I went to the mall and got Subway right as the mall was closing, and the workers were so busy that they were too busy to notice that we didn’t pay. They gave us our subs and said thanks, have a good day! And so we walked off. I thought Joel had already paid, and he thought I had paid because there was a receipt in the machine still. So we got $18 worth of subs and combos, yeee!
Thanks Lady Luck! Hopefully more comes my way soon :)>
Two years have gone by, and we still talk like no time has passed <3
I spoke to one of my dearest friends today for two and a half hours on the phone. We haven’t talked in about two years, but the conversation never stopped, and I don’t think I have laughed this hard or this often in a very long time. I’m so happy that we are still the same people, and we are so much alike still. I’m glad to hear that her life is going well, and she was just as glad to hear about my life :)
I’m so ecstatic that I get to reconnect with her. I don’t have many people I talk to on a regular basis, but I know I can call her up any time and talk openly and won’t be judged. She is the long lost friend I have been needing and looking for for a while now.
So happy right now <3
Thank you Lord for so many wonderful blessings! <3>
Life is Grand!
Its been a while since I last posted anything. A lot has happened since then.
Holiday-wise, Christmas was nice and quiet, spent with family of course. I can’t imagine spending such a holiday without my family. New Years was deliciously fun as Joel and I went to beautiful Quebec City, was upgraded to an executive suite and got lots of free food :)
Work-wise, I had been working random temporary jobs here and there with temp agencies. Then in mid January I got a job as an office manager, and a week after I started working, I got an interview for a sample handling technician. I went for the interview and practically got the job on the spot. After the interview, my would-be supervisor took me on a tour of the lab which I would later end up managing, and I was told I would get a call back on Thursday or Friday if I got the job. Surely enough, at 8:15am on Thursday morning, I got a call and a wonderful job offer :) I am now working at PRACS institute. This opportunity is so amazing and I am so unbelievably lucky to get it. Firstly, it is an entry-level salary job with amazing benefits. Secondly, they BUILT me a new office. Brand new! With a name plate on the door! Thirdly, I get lab coats with my name embroidered onto it. It has been two weeks since working there, and everyone is so nice and friendly and happy. Everyone from the big boss in Fargo ND, to the people who are training me. It is such a positive work environment. My supervisor Ray is super nice too and he acts more like a friend than a boss. I am so happy to be working with PRACS. PLUS it is just a 15 minute bus ride from Joel’s place. It is honestly the most perfect opportunity. AND the work I do is pretty simple and the kind of work I like to do. I sort and inventory samples, so most of the time I can just be in my own world and mind. But I know that is just the beginning and I will end up having more responsibilities, but I’m ready and excited for it! I love having friendly co-workers because they will usually bring in treats to work for everyone (donuts, muffins, samosas, Chinese new year treats, etc), and sometimes we get pizza parties (really good gourmet pizza) or really good cooked food. I can’t believe how perfect everything is :)
The most recent thing that happened was Valentines day. Joel was texting me telling me that we would go for sushi. So I came home from work and the lights were off and there were candles and a rose on the table! So romantic! AND he cooked me an amazing meal! He cooked stir fry and rice, it was honestly so delicious, I’m asking him to make it again for me :) He also searched so many stores to find a type of chocolate that I love, and his card made me cry with all the lovely things he wrote in it! How lucky am I to have such a romantic boyfriend ;) I got him a cute cuddly stuffed dog which he named Benson and he cuddles every night with us, and chocolate and two books that he wanted. Not as romantic, but just as thoughtful! Love you, Joel <3
Now, I am just at home with my family. We went for sushi today and are just relaxing and spending time together. My mom bought me candles on a rectangle plate. She is so adorable! I love my mom and dad so much!
Life is so amazing right now! I’m also planning on getting a new car in May. My heart is set on a Hyundai Elantra, but who knows. I may see another car and fall in love with it before the time comes :) Good things are happening to me and I’m so thankful to God for blessing me with lots of love and happiness!
2013 has been great for me so far, and I hope that the rest of 2013 brings more great things for me, and everyone else!
I love you for reading!
My mama loves to take care of her big baby <3
I fell asleep on the love seat last night and my feet were hanging off to the side because the couch is too short to stretch out in, so my mom brought a chair over and put my feet on it and also brought her bath robe and wrapped my legs in it so I wouldn’t get cold.
I love my mama soooo much <3 <3 <3 She is the sweetest lady and would do anything for me and Mike. I want to do something very nice for her for Christmas… not too sure what yet, but it will be fabulous!
So thankful to God for blessing me with the most wonderful mother a girl could ask for <3>
