All I can say..

today is that I am incredibly sad.
I slept all day.
But tonight is my friend's bachelorette party so maybe I will feel better after that? I sure hope so.
Sorry for the complaining -I just needed to get it out.

Making me Smile Today..

I've been feeling under the weather with a cold that keeps getting worse :( But it has given me time to catch up on some blog reading, and to my surprise, I received a blog award from Deer Little Fawn, and it just made my day! So I have decided to share some things that have been making me smile :)

Hope you all are having a great weekend!

My next tattoo?

I've been thinking about getting a tattoo on my upper left arm for a while. I think eventually I want a sleeve, but I don't know what all I want to include. I couldn't decide on a large design, so I decided I wanted to start small and add on gradually (or maybe not?). I've recently thought about starting with a small tattoo on my upper arm, that starts on my upper shoulder blade and curves around onto my arm. I wanted something that wouldn't look lonely by itself on my arm,and couldn't think of anything for a while. Then it hit me-cherry blossoms! The branches are very poetic and flow very well so it seems perfect. Plus there is a lot of symbolism in the cherry blossom for the Japanese people, so it is a fitting tribute to family and ancestry. I love the colors of this tattoo:

I just love the look of cherry blossoms period. They are so beautiful against a blue sky

So what do you think of my idea? I'm going to be in a wedding in less than a month, so I'm hoping to get it done before then :)

My Love Affair with Macaroni and Cheese..

began long ago. As I grew up, my love only grew stronger. Throughout college i would sustain myself with boxes of macaroni and cheese. I would often eat a whole box for dinner!
The kind with powdered cheese, liquid cheese, baked macaroni and cheese, mac n cheese bites, mac n cheese pizza..the list goes on and on! And, I'm happy to announce that the Kraft company has read my mind and decided to make EXTREME CHEESE macaroni! It is amazingly thick and cheesy and I highly suggest you go buy a box. Now. Seriously it's amazing! Here are some awesome mac and cheese pictures that will surely make you hungry!

What is your favorite food?

Swimming with the Dolphins!

Like I mentioned before, I am really trying to live life and have more fun. I have a huge list of things I want to do before I die, and I have decided to do some of the things on my list-we only live once!
One thing on my list is swimming with dolphins. I've heard so much about these amazing animals and I've always wanted to go swim with dolphins. On my trip to Florida, I got to! The dolphins at Gulf World are amazing. They are all highly trained and so smart! I got to hug a dolphin:

and get a dolphin kiss:

They shake hands

and I even got to take a ride through the water while holding onto his fin!

They are so powerful but so graceful! They will sing and laugh for you, wave, and do tricks. It was amazing!

I'm sure most of you lovelies have known about the awesomeness of ModCloth for a while now. I however, had heard of it, but never made it over to until the other day, and boy was I impressed! I love the clothes and the apartment section, too. Just in case you haven't been by in a while, or have never visited, here are some of my favorite things for sale

It's probably pretty obvious that I love vintage pin up style! There are so many different styles that I love, but these are especially inspiring me tonight :) What styles do you gravitate to?

More Florida loveliness!

Here are some more photos from my trip. Taking photos was one of the most enjoyable parts of my trip!

I also got to go to Gulf World! That's where I swam with dolphins, and afterward, I browsed the animal exhibits. They were amazing! you could get right up next to most of the animals! The birds were free to fly around the area and some of them even talked :) Here are some of my pictures -sorry some are blurry- These were some active animals!

(these are giant sea turtles. they are as long as a full grown human!)

Hope you enjoy these photos!
