Watch out for that…

wreckedcar

 

Well, it finally happened:  my 1997 Honda Accord is no longer drivable.  How did I do this you ask?  All women driver jokes aside this was not my fault.  A nineteen year old boy ran a stop sign on my highway and I hit him going slightly over forty miles per hour.  I am okay minus needing to see a specialist about my left wrist.  It could have been SO much worse, and I am thankful every day that myself and the boy I hit are okay.

Good thing I had been saving up my money while working two jobs for a while.  The boyfriend gave me some really good advice.  After test driving a few cars (and almost walking out of the dealership), I left with a beautiful new car and a really good deal.  Hopefully this one will last me a very long time.

The Future

I can only wish that 30 years from now I am talking to my dogs like they are my children and joking with my husband about how much he still wants to get into my pants.  You can never watch too much Duck Dynasty.

Happy, happy, happy

421833_4769708395304_27180517_nIt feels amazing to not only be in a healthy and happy relationship but to be surrounded by couples who get along, have trust, and genuinely want the best for each other.  I will NEVER apologize for talking about my relationship, especially when it is in a positive light.  People always seem to tell me to “shut up” when I talk about how great things are with Clay, but in the past when I was miserable they were more than happy to listen.  I still love my friends.  :)

Clay has brought out feelings in me as a woman I have never experienced before.  He has caused such a love in me to blossom that the thoughts of a family are more present than they have ever been.  Granted, I never had thoughts of a family with anyone before.  I have finally settled down, and it feels nice to concentrate on working, my friends and loved ones, and a future.

The laughable thing about all of this is that the only negative opinions or statements I am getting are either from my single friends or my friends that are not in happy relationships.  The only two single people in my life who do not demean my talking about my love life would be my two best friends.  True support from friends is something you learn not to take for granted.

So much has changed in the past four to five years.  I’m almost 30 years old.  A hobby-type of job has turned into a very lucrative career, as well as something I don’t even dare call a job because I enjoy it so much.  I have done all of this on my own, and I enjoy living the life I have built for myself very much.  I missed reading as much as I used to, and writing as much as I used to.  I forgot how therapeutic it was.  Life is good…and the youth is not always wasted on the young.

Not so much a Charlie Brown Christmas anymore…

Christmas 2012

My favorite time of year has come and gone faster than I expected (much like my 20′s, HA!).  This was my second year in a row bartending on Christmas Eve.  We were much busier this year than last.  This year I got out around 2:30am with help cleaning up.  Last year I was out and finished with clean up before 1:30am.  I’ll take a busy and lucrative night over a slow and boring one any day.

2012 was my first Christmas that I purchased my very own REAL tree.  Clay and I picked out a beautiful 6 1/2″ Douglas Fir for a decent price.  Every year I’ve been in my condo I have had a very sad, fake Christmas tree that cost me about $30 at Home Depot in 2007.  My friends used to tease me and tell me my tree had the flu.

I was able to spend the first half of Christmas with Clay and his family.  The last half of the evening we spent with my Mom and her side of the family.  I could not have asked for a more peaceful and happy Christmas.  I really am one blessed woman.
