Ravens Football on Thanksgiving

So Matt and I went to the Ravens football game on Thanksgiving. I had a few too many cups of ‘Hot Chocolate’ (which I may or may not have spiked).  I had a great time at the game given that I didn’t want to even go to start with for a number of reasons including….. Cold weather. Matt takes football WAY too serious for me. I am all about a good game but if my team loses, it doesn’t change anything for me. When the Ravens win, Matt is the best person in the world to hang out but when they lose, he’s inconsolable...

One Thing Duct Tape Won’t Fix

If there is one thing I know it is that relationships aren’t easy. They are tons of work. Hard work at that. So for those of you that think it SHOULD be easy. You are ohh so wrong. Today I was talking with a girl at work about relationships and it got me thinking. So tonight I couldn’t wait to come home to blog about how I wish sometimes that I could just fix everything in my life with duct tape. The reality is, relationships are one thing that duct tape can’t fix. So here are quick thoughts about relationships: There is no...

True Love

So yesterday I wrote about relationships and how much work they can be. Relationships are hard and for anyone that thinks different, please share your secrets. Till I find out I wanted to share a song that I think is cute and many of you can probably relate. Sometimes I hate every single stupid word you say, Sometimes I wanna slap you in your whole face. There’s no one quite like you, you push all my buttons down, I know life would suck without you. At the same time I wanna hug you, I wanna wrap my hands around your neck. You’re...

Inventing Problems

Here recently I have found myself getting more upset at things and people. Matt has been in my line of fire. The other night in an insecure moment he told me “I love you and I am not going anywhere. You have a choice to make and you must decide if I get to stay or go.” Of course I cried and I didn’t sleep well at all that night. After tons of thinking and many days I have come up with what I understand the problem to be. I was creating problems that didn’t exist based upon insecurities. Matt can be a lot like a child....

Same Love

I started writing this post awhile ago (a month ago) but I wanted to make sure it made the points I wanted to make. I didn’t feel like I could do this topic justice. I want to try so here goes. Yesterday we had July 4th which was a day about independence and freedom. I thought today was a good day to finish up my post this about a new freedom for some which is about “Same Love”. Let me explain… I grew up in Kansas where I learned a conservative way of thinking. I didn’t have exposure to much diversity. I was...

Brave

So this morning I was cleaning the apartment and Matt was in the livingroom and he called my name to come out for a minute. So he pauses the TV and puts it back to a song that I have fallen in love with and he wanted to share the music video. It gets better…. So the next song that comes on Matt goes in a trance. I love it because the words speak so true. I wanted to post the actual words because I want you to read them and hopefully they speak to you. You can be amazing You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug You can be the...

The Adventure

The Adventure

Matt and I packed up the car and started for our drive out West. We didn’t know for sure where we would end up but was going to be an adventure. On the drive we stopped to see Rhonda and Mira. It was a nice surprise when my friend Amanda drove with her husband hours to come spend time with us too. It humbled me that so many people in the last week had been so incredible to me and so supportive.   On our drive I got a job offer from the job I had interviewed for in Cali. I had a number of offers that week but I was interested the...

Marilyn Monroe Gala

When I got back to Maryland I had an event to go to with Matt’s mom Alice. We went and got our hair and makeup done for a Marilyn Monroe Gala that was raising money for breast cancer research. It was a girls night and it was a lot of fun. We knew that Matt and I would take off towards Kansas to spend time with my family and keep job hunting. After the event we went to a bar where they had live music. We got the guys to come in and listen for a little bit. I got picked as a Marilyn finalist but I didn’t win. It was fun girl...
