So most of you who read this are my friends.
Which is totally cool, I'm glad to offer some entertainment outside of the repetitive facebook creeping.
Unfortunately for you, I also like to use this as an outlet from time to time, which means that on this occasion you are going to have to hear me gush just a tad.

I'll find a notebook and spill all the nauseatingly cute things in there, but I will say that I'm over the moon.

Getting with someone new is always exciting and exhilarating and with him it's all that and more.
Like someone has turned the colour on a black and white tv.
To quote Dr.Seuss "when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams", I wouldn't want to redo any regrets from our history because it's brought me to this point and made me who I am.

The important part is now and what's to come, and I can't wait to find out.

chats with mom

I'm going on my third friend's wedding in a few months.
I think that's pretty good for being 25.

Anyways, I'm trying to figure out what to get for the wedding shower and naturally wandered away from other people's selections and started browsing at one of my go-tos BHLDN.com -a little gem I was introduced to while at 'bells. (check it out it's AH-MAZE-ING-see pics below).
My mom happened to be sprawled across my bed in a cat-like manner wearing an apron and her winter coat while I was doing this so since she didn't seem to be leaving anytime soon I decided to share with her some of my favs.
Automatically me showing her images of water jugs meant I was getting married (the Martha Stewart in me can't resist a classy glass water jug or a tiered cupcake stand-she knows this! but I did happen to start dating a guy that she's in love with, so it doesn't take much to excite her).
But like most mothers might react with pulling the ancient, dated, laced wedding dress from it's garment bag or the very least gossiping about the fledgling romance, mine gets all serious faced and tells me she wants me to travel before I get married.
Because apparently seeing the majority of the populated areas of Canada (some more than once) from Vancouver to P.E.I, seeing 5 european countries (snowboarding in the alps), Mexico, Dominican and a nice strip of North America's eastern seaboard isn't good enough at 25.

Okay that's pretty cool that my mom isn't throwing me out the house and elbowing me down the aisle, but give a girl some credit!
Plus, wouldn't it be more fun to travel with a hunky guy you're in love with and have foreign vacation sexy time?!?
