Happy Halloween and End of 30 Day Challenge!

Day 29/Day 30 are simply about Halloween. Here's my costume idea this year (I'll post pictures later!) and just a wish for you for a sweet and spooky Halloween.

Thanks again to the lovely Laura for providing some ideas for this 30 Day Challenge. You rock!

This year for Halloween, I'm going as Pam Beesly and my boy as Jim Halpert.

Day 27!

Day 27 is my favorite kid's show...currently. I know, I know, 21-year-olds aren't supposed to watch kid's shows. But occasionally I do! I got hooked on my favorite from babysitting. It is the perfect mix of goofiness, cuteness, and good singing. One of the episodes made a goofy comparison to TMZ, which was awesome. I'm talking about...

Here are some more of my favorite girls from past seasons...

Day 25...

Day 25 is my daily makeup routine...
I use Falsies Mascara right now...I love long lashes!

I love using blush and bronzer together! It creates a nice glow.

I use this kind of foundation every day. My face tends to be dry but get oily looking during the day and I've found this is one of the only foundations that doesn't get too oily.

And of course I love a good lip balm!

Day 23/24!

Day 23/Day 24 goes together. Day 23 = Something I'm excited about and Day 24 = Something I'm nervous for.

Turns out it is the exact same thing. Graduation in TWO MONTHS.

That seems crazy to me! Starting out in elementary school to middle school to high school to college. School has always been the one constant thing in my life when other things change. Even though I was never really excited by school and hate studying, it seems kind of weird to not have to go to school anymore.

But at the same time, it is so exciting! No more group projects, tests, articles, grades, class...yes! Now I'll be entering the scary world of presenting myself and trying to get a job. Wish me luck, please!

Day 21!

I love day 21 because I am 21! :) Day 21 features my favorite quote...

I have so many so I am going to copy my Facebook quotes which feature a few of my favorites.

Favorite Quotations
“I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.”♥

Where do they go? The things we think and feel, but never say...-Everwood

"What you feel only matters to you. It's what you do to the people you say you love."-The Last Kiss
sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past, stop planning the future, stop trying to figure out precisely how we feel, stop deciding with our mind what we want our heart to feel & sometimes we just have to go with... whatever happens, happens.

what's meant to be will ALWAYS find a way.

"if you're dating a hockey player, raise your glass. if not, raise your standards" :)

"life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away."

"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength."

"i would rather do nothing all day and be happy than do something i don't love."-what happens in vegas.

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”-Ghandi

"That thing... that moment when you kiss someone and everything around you becomes hazy, and the only thing in focus is you and this person. And you realize that that person is the only person you’re supposed to kiss for the rest of your life. And for one moment you get this amazing gift. And you wanna laugh and you wanna cry, ‘cause you feel so lucky that you’ve found it, and so scared that it’ll go away all at the same time."

The Friendship I Was Searching For

Looking back on this blog, in the midst of all the fun posts, there were always posts here and there about missing something. About feeling lost without a girl best friend in the same city. Sure, I've always had lots of friends but they were either always letting me down, we were too busy to see each other much, away at college, or living in a different city. I'll always cherish my girl friends and I don't want any of them to feel bad by the posts I write craving more girl camaraderie.
So one of the reasons I've been happy lately is because I've found what I've been searching for. A friend who I can talk to about anything, who lives close and is able to hang out a few times a week, who calls me when I'm sick to see if I'm okay, who updates me on her life, who I have fun adventures with, who will drive me over her laptop because I am stressed and need something on it for work, who doesn't like drama and doesn't get annoyed at stupid things just like me, and the list goes on. It is a friend I've known for a few years, but she was one who went away to school and we didn't get to hang out very often. We grew closer over the summer and she decided to stay home this year, splitting her time between home and school. I am so glad she did! I finally have a best friend who is there when I need her. And I am so thankful for that.

I also want to say I am thankful for all my friends. My boyfriend who is my very best friend and ALWAYS there for me. My sister-friend who lives over an hour away but is still like my sister and I cherish all the moments we can spend together. And to all of my other friends who I may not see as often as we both would like, I love you all. Thank you for all the laughs and the hugs and for everything. Thank you even to the ex-friends, those who I grew apart from in the past few years. You've all taught me something in a different way and I still cherish all our good times.

Day Seventeen...

Day Seventeen is something I've created...

Instead of sharing a picture of something I've created, I'll share a story.

The proudest thing I've created is myself and my confidence. Every girl has low self-esteem at times. Every girl feels shy and weird in her own skin sometimes. When I was younger, I was extremely shy and timid and nervous. I still get that way sometimes, but my confidence has really grown. I am more comfortable in different situations and am working hard every day to work past my nervousness and anxiety. I am proud of the woman I am creating and working hard to be...

Share with me your story!
