Life … and things .. mostly random things

Howdy doooody my dear interweb friends …

Did you miss me? I missed you! A lot. Too Much.

But I’m here to tell you that

  • I haven’t forgotten you
  • I love your faces
  • I want to do a giveaway soon because this girl has over 500 instagram followers and that boggles my little brain!!

So I took a bit of a blogging hiatus; not on purpose … just a life thing. There was a bunch of other stuff I needed to focus on.

My bestie is married. MARRIED! Yes, no longer my right hand-partner-in-crime … also, this officially means we’re both adults … married, responsible for husbands, paying taxes and all that jazz. Kids of the playground, don’t rush this stuff … it’s not as shiny and sparkly as it seems … it has it’s perks … but don’t get blown away.  But it was a love filled, happiness exploding ball of sunshine … aka it was perfection. And, it’s very possible that I ugly cried more at this wedding, than at my own … she was just so beautiful!!

One more wedding to go at the end of this month, and then officially my group of friends will live happily ever after … until kids come along. OMG one of my girlies had a little boy and he’s as cute as a button and I’ve nicknamed him Joe because 1) It’s no where close to his actual name 2) I’m a jerk. But I love his face, and I’m so proud of his mama and papa .. they’re going to be amazing parental units.

I also haven’t been feeling all that jazzy, and I didn’t want to bring that sort of negativity to the blog. Even though summer is supposed to bring about sunshine, happiness, laughter, and extra ice cream sprinkles … it’s just not jiving with me right now …  I think part of why I love blogging is the honesty associated with it, but seriously mixing butter, sugar and anxiety does not produce cupcakes!

But I’m back.

Back and full of inspiration and tons of fun stuff I want to share. I want to know what you’ve done over the summer – have you traveled? WHAT HAVE YOU EATEN!?! How many ice cream cones can you down in one cottage trip … you know, the essentials of life.

Speaking of essentials, can someone PLEASE tell me how to rid the world of stupid mosquitoes … I have enough bites for someone to mistake me for having the chickenpox – one specifically on my neck that makes me look like i’m a 16 year old with a hickey … SO NOT CLASSY!!

They know me so well!!
They know me so well!!

In the next couple of months, you can expect giveaways … tons more cookies … and recipes that are sure to leave you with a slight sugar high. Also, I feel with us finishing the first week of August, I need to do all the summer things and ease us all into back-to-school and then fall.

Ready to throw up a little, my favourite local grocery store already has  pumpkin spiced cookies out … I gagged … and then proceeded to buy 2 boxes. #SorryNotSorry … and I’m still eating all of the strawberries, peaches and watermelon I can wrap my fingers around.

I think that’s enough random mammer-jammer for a while. Happy Friday you gorgeous people!!

Wisdomist Wednesday : Best Friend

e3f41f66e9b409950c9a6f7be1934f47

My best friend is getting married this year. I tell you this, because this weekend we’re going away for her bachelorette. I CAN’T WAIT!

SUN, SAND, SEA from Sun rise to Sun Set … this is one of those vacations, that I’ll probably need a vacation post vacation.

For the  of us traveling, I hope this is a chance to do nothing but relax, forget about the worlds worries and live in complete bliss.

Truth be told, there’s no one I know who deserves a happily ever after more than this woman!! It’s her heart … it’s how pure it is, and how badly she wants to see the world in a happy state. It’s how giving she is, it’s how deep she cares for people and how far she will go to make you laugh. It’s her tough advice, it’s her spicy nature and her nonstop dancing.

For the most selfish reasons ever, I get crazy anxiety attacks when I think about the fact that she’s getting married. I couldn’t be happier for her, I know she will be happy, but I also couldn’t be more scared. She’s precious to me, her love and all that she stands for – I’m scared any of it ever gets taken for granted.

Dear Soon-to-be Mr. Best Friend’s Husband, if you hurt her … you have no idea what you have coming. Seriously. I will destroy you. Be a cool dude; make her laugh; be patient with her; grow with her. You’re getting a piece of me, come august. You guys will lead an amazing life, go on tons of adventures; enjoy every second of it.

Dear Soon-to-be Mrs. Best Friend … I love you dude. I’ll love you forever and not just me, but I know there are many out there that are standing to protect you, support you, laugh at you and with you. I can’t believe in a little over 2 months you’re going to be a wife…. Ewww you’re going to live with a boy!! They’re not so bad. Love him … allow yourself to love him and for him to love you. Laugh together, grow together, be patient with him … guys can be dumb, help him.

This weekend is FOR YOU. It’s time to DANCE! It’s time to LAUGH! It’s time to RELAX. Let’s dooo this  BESTIE ❤
