So recently I have been working on my patience with people and frustrating situations...Everyone has something they need to work on in their life and I find that a lot of my arguments or unhappiness tends to stem from my impatience. Impatience with my family, impatience with silly questions, impatience with the people I care about the most.
I feel like I have a right to be upset with things sometimes and not because everyone else tells me so, but because I just know in my heart that its ok for me to be hurt and/or upset about something. Its really been weighing on my heart recently a situation involving my bf. I have tried super hard to not let it bother me but I can't help but feel hurt about the whole thing.
My birthday is in a couple weeks and I wanted to get a bunch of friends together to celebrate since last year I really didn't do anything. I was even more excited because I would actually have a bf in the same area and could be with me to celebrate. It just happens that my birthday falls on a Wednesday and so I was going to go to dinner and then out with people on Friday evening. It just so happens that one of my bf's best friends has his birthday over the weekend. So, he has chosen to go down and celebrate his friend's birthday with him and his friends instead of being with me and my friends. His explanation was that we would be hanging out the weekend before so that should be enough. He was actually "surprised" I was even upset. I really don't know how I couldn't have been hurt about the decision. Its really bad when your ex-bf that doesn't even talk to me anymore still sends me a b day present from Afghanistan and says he wishes he could be there to celebrate.
I am really bad about letting things go. And I hate being sad...I hope that this sadness that I am holding inside goes away soon...
P.S. I liked this picture because for some reason it reminds me of hope and continuance. I want to feel how the picture looks.

Good Music is Happiness

These are some of my favorite albums. I have literally memorized every song on each album and have yet to get annoyed with the songs...and I probably won't ever.

If you have never used Picnik before, I suggest you check it out. If you are poor like me and can't afford expensive photo editing software, this is so freaking awesome. Totally take advantage of the greatness that is PICNIK.

These are some of the first ones I did:

Me and my beautiful best friends.

Me and my hunnybun.

Other Dallas Friends

Birds of Paradise in San Diego

Moi. Bored on our 20 hour drive back to Dallas.

Topshop Needs

OMG. I have to find money and quickly. Why is being fashionable so expensive?

Mango...the designer, not the SNL character or the fruit...





Hot stuff. :)

Black Wedges...Since I lost my others :(

Any suggestions on which ones I should get? I can't decide!

Chaise Dreamin'

Totally wish I could get a chaise lounge...put it in a nook in my bedroom...

Curl up on it in my pjs, on a rainy day with a comfy blanket, and a badass book....

That's what I wish....

Le sigh.

Smella Ella Bella pup Ella...

Such a little dork of a dog :)

Love her. She says hi everyone.

Aire Barcelona



Whenever I do get married, can I please get a dress from this designer?

Look at these...cannot help but love them!

My favorite one I'm not gonna show...maybe I will wear it one day in the far off future...

Yes, I'm crazy. :)

Shaun Menary Photography

So I saw some of my friend's engagement pictures I checked out the photographer and I gotta say he is AMAZING! Whenever I get to that point in my life, I totally want him to do my engagement/wedding pics. You should check out his website and blog. He is super talented. Here are some of my faves:

Hope you like as much as I did. These are just a few I could get. He has so many more in his portfolio.

'Til next time,

My Condo! :)

So I have this MASSIVE wall in my living room...I have 19 ft ceilings in my place and that makes it difficult to decorate. I was so tired of looking at my drab gray walls, that I put that poster (that I am obsessed with) up behind my pub dining room table set. It doesn't really go so I bought this cute beveled mirror at Target for $60 which was super cheap to me. So I am going to replace that poster with this mirror and I can't wait to finish decorating my place. Its hard to decorate all this wall space....especially on a tight budget!

That brings me to this painting. I started playing around with acrylics and came up with this little diddy. I'm not quite finished with it yet, but I think this plus a painting or two more is going to look great above my HUGE comfy couch. <---seriously its like a bed in my living room.

With love,
