Enjoy Friends :)


pardon me while I go harvest my blueberries...

I'm a Loser.

I would like to thank the creators of Farmville, for turning me into said loser.

Why? Why do I plan my entire day around the most convenient time to harvest my crops? Why do I insist on having exactly the same amount of each tree so that my farm looks cute? Why have I let this stupid game take over my life? Why can't I just sssssssttttttoooooopppp?


IT HERE (well, in less than 12 hours)

"Option three: Edward loved me. The bond forged between us was not one that could be broken by absence, distance, or time. And no matter how much more special or beautiful or brilliant or perfect than me he might be, he was as irreversibly altered as I was. As I would always belong to him, so would he always be mine."


1 Day

"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars—points of light and reason… And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything."


2 Days

"I’d never seen anything more beautiful—even as I ran, gasping and screaming, I could appreciate that. And the last seven months meant nothing. And his words in the forest meant nothing. And it did not matter if he did not want me. I would never want anything but him, no matter how long I lived."


3 Days

"I don’t think he ever planned to outlive you by long. We may already be too late. I saw him going to the Volturi… and asking to die."


4 Days

"I guessed that, between the two choices before me, being eaten by wolves was almost certainly the worse option."


5 Days

"I’m quite thirsty, and you do smell… simply mouthwatering."


6 Days

" He was my best friend. I would always love him, and it would never, ever be enough."


7 Days

"I promise that this will be the last time you’ll see me. I won’t come back. I won’t put you through anything like this again. You can go on with your life without any more interference from me. It will be as if I’d never existed."


8 Days

"Dazed and disoriented, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm — into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires."


9 Days

"Edward had drawn many careful lines for our physical relationship, with the intent being to keep me alive. Though I respected the need for maintaining a safe distance between my skin and his razor-sharp, venom-coated teeth, I tended to forget about trivial things like that when he was kissing me."


10 Days

"I didn’t have to look to know who it was; this was a voice I would know anywhere—know, and respond to, whether I was awake or asleep… or even dead, I’d bet. The voice I’d walk through fire for—or, less dramatically, slosh every day through the cold and endless rain for. Edward."


Moving Sucks... I think I'll Procrastinate Instead

Good Evening Friends
I hope your having a fabulous & exciting weekend!

While I should be unpacking the shit that's been strewn all over my new abode, I find myself laying in bed... with absolutely no desire to ever unpack not feeling well.
Everyone knows how to cure a sickness...
Sex and the City and Christmas Ale 
{of course}

{can you really resist a label like that? I didn't think so}

p.s. I STRONGLY recommend getting your New Moon tickets right now... due to many of the showings already selling out.

p.p.s. Don't worry, I already have mine, for the midnight showing of course ;) 

p.p.p.s Have a Wonderful Night, Darlings!

Mr. & Mrs. Gkilla

Classy, I know.


Guess what I got...

The keys to our apartment a week early! After some negotiating with my boss, I decided that I just couldn't wait any longer and I needed them on Monday. So I got them, because I agreed to paint & clean my own apartment (for a free month of rent!)

Was it worth it? Yes... and no. Its great to get to move in earlier, especially because we have such a busy week BUT the previous tenant was disgusting- I have pictures I would post but y'all would probably think I was crazy for agreeing to cleaning this place myself. Yeah, it's pretty bad. But I have faith that with some major TLC & maybe a few miracles, it will feel like home.

So last night we packed up some things: clothes, toothbrushes, shower stuff, bed stuff, my computer, wine, snacks, twilight/sex & the city dvd's etc., drove to Wally (Walmart) and picked up some essintials and headed over to our new place.

I swept the floors, made our "bed" (a ton of comforters and blankets on the floor) set up my computer so we could listen to some tunes and watch movies later on and popped a frozen pizza in the oven. We got to work painting what will be our bedroom after eating some pizza. 15 minutes later I decided that I hated painting walls.

After about 2 hours we were finally DONE with our room, called it quits, and celebrated with some snacks and a bottle of ice wine we got as a wedding gift :) I also convinced R that it would be much easier for him to paint if I wasn't in his way and I started cleaning instead... and because he loves me he agreed- but made me promise I would do the trim. So tonight, I tackle the bathroom with an army of bleach, windex, and about 100 magic erasers.


November 09 Goals

I skipped October becuase I knew I was going to be swamped with wedding stuff. I suck, I know.
Lets start fresh with November, shall we?

  • Send out wedding thank you's. It may seem pathetic that this is one of my goals. I should want to thank all the wonderful people that helped make our big day so special. Instead, I am dreading the writers block and hand cramps that I foresee in my near future :(
  • Read 3 books. Because knowledge is power people! And because so many good ones were recently released.
  • Get back into the morning routine. Now that R and I are married & rested, its time to get back to the grind. We need to wake up when the alarm actually rings, and I need to do simple things like make his lunch & iron his clothes the night before instead of running around like a crazy woman 5 mins before we are supposed to leave the house.
  • Eat Breakfast every morning.  I seriously suck at this- it's only the most important meal of the day! I really need to get my metabolism going in the a.m. rather than waiting til oh... noonish.
  • Start the couch 2 5k running program. I'm stealing this from C at Classically Modern. NEST. Im not a big runner (partly because I'm lazy and partly because I have asthma) but I would like to try this program out. Read all about it here.
  • Walk my dogs more often. Because I love them and they deserve it.
  • Bake something delicious once a week. I'm a much better baker than I am cook, not to mention my boys all love sweets. (furry ones included)
  • Make myself a fabulous header. It's time I fire up illustrator and give my sorry looking blog header a fresh look! 
  • Get a 2nd job. I've been thinking about getting a 2nd job as a bartender when we move to Lakewood a few nights a week. My plan is to spend this $$ only on credit card bills to get rid of them faster.
Wish me luck friends!
Do you have any special goals for this month?
