4 days phone less

due to my phone breaking, i was phone less for the last 4 days
in california, needless to say the cali post will be a little delayed
seeing as how i cannot get any of my pictures off of my old phone
at the moment. boo technology.

try again

it's really sad to me that two things i enjoy doing i can never keep up on.
1. blogging
2. writing in my journal
so here we go again, with another attempt at the blogging world. as strange as it may sound, this attempt is all thanks to a friend. after telling her some unique experiences that I've had recently in the singles realm she said, "I swear if you had a blog it'd be a HIT!".
I don't really expect that to happen, but maybe a few of you might enjoy my random life stories. and heck, once i get started, send me yours - I'm sure I won't have enough to keep this thing going by myself!
and you'll probably have to excuse my lack of post over the next week because I'm hitting the beach! and there will be pictures to come!
for now, start thinking about all your crazy date stories. best date. worst date. etc & send em to me!

i thought i was going to get better
at this whole blogging thing again,
apparently i was wrong.

here's my life since the last post..
walker is home.
jordan is home.
jake is home.

i have hardly seen any of them :/

but it's almost christmas! & that's
exciting right?! i can't wait!

and i've become addicted to pintrest.
i don't know how to use it yet,
but i just spend hours on there looking
at pictures. right now this is my
favorite one:

isn't it so fantastic?!
i know a ton of people have already
seen it but i love it nonetheless!
