Best Halloween Memory

I just have to say that I love Halloween.
I spend most of the year thinking of different costume ideas and struggle picking one each year.
Last year I wanted to be Katy Perry so bad so I was. 

 I think the blue wig and the tutu is about the only reason I may look like Katy Perry.

For some reason I just really like costumes that require wearing a wig or dying your hair. 
I dyed my hair red so that I could be teenage pebbles and secretly ended up wearing this costume again last year after hating my Katy Perry costume.

But the best Halloween memory has no picture. I'm sure my mom has a picture stashed away somewhere but I do not have access to it. 
I was in 5th or 6th grade and I went as a witch. 
I had to wear an old wig that itched like crazy and I just was not a cute witch.
Halfway through trick-or-treating I decided I did not want to be a witch anymore and decided to be E.T. dressed as a witch. I walked up to every door saying "E.T. phone home."
My dad hated it so much that he begged me to stop doing it, but of course I thought it was hilarious and would not stop.

Going from a witch to E.T. is pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

10 Things I Lied to Myself about Blogging

1.) It's easy to get followers.
No it is not. I set a goal last year to get 50 GFC followers and that number did not change all year long.
 
2.) I will write every day. 365 days of the year. Even on Holidays!
Hahahahahahaha! That's all I have to say about that.
 
3.) I will leave comments on every blog post I read.
I apologize, I just don't do that. I know I'm a horrible blogger.
 
4.) I will make lots of money doing this.
Nope. Nada. Zilch.
 
 
5.) I have so much to say I'll never run out of ideas.
Umm, what? Am I crazy?
 
6.) I will not write about the people I am dating.
Another haha to add to this one. Those poor guys.
 
7.) I won't share personal pictures out of privacy for family and friends.
Sorry family and friends, but you're just too cute not to share with the world.
 

8.) I will write only about my passions, my heart, and my life.
And then I should have added that I will write about my pins on pinterest, the music I am listening to, and my opinions.
 

9.) That I could actually come up with ten things.

I'm done.

Fall Bucket List

1. Pumpkin Patch and Carving/Glittering
 


2.) Family Time
My grandmother, my boyfriend, and I all fly into Indiana on the same day.
Family reunion/meet the parents will be in full swing. Brad has only met my parents via Skype so this is the first time he will meet my entire family and I am so excited. 2 weeks and counting!
 
3.) New Fall Outfits
I am taking my outfits and fall-i-fying them. No use in buying new clothes even though I want to because my clothes can totally be made into fall outfits.
 
4.) Halloween Costumes.
Let's be real, I've been thinking about costumes since last Halloween.
Which one do you think I'll pick?

One Thing I Cannot Live Without

I seriously have been sitting her for days thinking about this one.
The truth is I can live without a lot. Yes, I like a lot of the stuff I won, but it's not always necessary. So I'm turning to the necessity in my life which is people.
Specifically, my family.
 
This is my immediate family:






I cannot live without any of these beings above, but I also cannot live without the beings below as well. They are my family as well.

Dream job in 1994 to now

Oh the mind of a 4 year old when thinking about your future.
I am sure like most kids my dream job changed constantly.
 
My first dream just like any kid was to be a superstar.
I dreamed of singing at the big stage. Sometimes I practiced the littler mermaid songs in a grass skirt to be legit and I'm pretty sure I had multiple boa's. I thought I was born to be a singer.
 

Then I went through this stage of going back and forth between being a firefighter or a news anchor.

I'm not sure why either of these intrigued me because I would be the worst at them
 
 
In high school, I was convinced I should be a matchmaker despite the fact my matches broke up after a few months. Patty was my inspiration. She's feisty and sassy. I am totally that!


 
 
And today I am pursuing my masters in counseling psychology. What exactly will I do when I'm done? No idea! But I know I want a job that involves working with individuals and helping them reach self-actualization.

If I Won the Lottery...

I'm participating in...
 
Winning the lottery has been on my mind lately.
1.) Because the boyfriend buys lottery tickets each week. He usually makes his money back and I usually lose. Lucky me.
2.) I'm tired of being a semi-poor graduate student.

 
If I won the lottery, I would do the following...
1.) Pay off my student debt. This is the number one goal at the moment because that number is not getting smaller.

If you want to make this goal happen now, please vote for me or my brother. We're both competing for the Dr. Pepper Tuition Giveaway Scholarship. As much I as I could use the money, I truly believe in my brothers dream and know he is going to do great things in music.

To vote for me
To Vote for my brother
 
2.) Invest in my future. I need a retirement fund badly so that I do not have to work all the way into my 80's.
 
3.) Probably do a little shopping because I was all of the following









 
4.) Go on a cruise because I just love those darn things.
 
Those are the top 4 things on my list at the moment. And of course there's always giving some of it away because paying it forward is important always.

1 Year Together

Yeah so I'm going to be that sappy person and post about my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend. And you're going to have to deal with it because this is the longest I've ever been with a guy and I'm not stopping anytime soon.
 
 
We spent our day visiting parts of Washington I've never been to before. We went to Fort Cassey and Worden.
(This is Fort Cassey. It was much cooler than Worden)

I went on my first ferry ride which was fun and surprisingly quick.
It's amazing how quick boats can be.
 
We also spent a lot of time singing and being goofballs.

 
But the best part of the whole day was spending the whole day together.
Since starting school again our schedules make it difficult to get some time together.
He's either working or I'm working/studying/surviving.
Quality time is always the best gift.
Speaking of gifts the boy built me a desktop as my gift. He seriously is the sweetest and most thoughtful. It has been so helpful to do my school work on since my laptop can be pretty slow at times.
 
I am so blessed and happy to have Brad in my life. He's become one of my best friends and my home. I cannot wait to see what the next year holds for both us.
I love you Bebe!
