Huge Birthday Itinerary for Savannah Georgia!

Huge Birthday Itinerary for Savannah Georgia!

   Hey guys! Today’s post is another small departure from our usual programming, and late, as is my trend. If you guys have been following in the ol’ tweet machine you may have noticed me LOSING MY EVER-LOVING MIND. Short version: I’m excited. Long version? Just check it out!

     My birthday plans include 6 days of fun and fancy, starting on the 16th.

05/16/2019

    Oh boy! I’m going to wake up at 6:00 AM, bright and early. I’m going to throw on my clothes, put Java’s pajamas on her (because I’m that person, and I want her to feel warm and safe), and get on the road. The trip to Savannah is about 4 hours from home. I’m going to stop in every town I come across to try the coffee. That alone will add an hour or so to the trip.

     I plan to get to Savannah about 2 or 3 pm, in time to check in to the hotel. I had initially picked one with an adorable aesthetic, not only were the reviews unfavorable, but they wouldn’t allow my sweet daughter. And how can you say no to this?:

05/17/2019

    Today, I plan to take to the historic town of Savannah and see what the downtown scene is like. I want to explore and walk on the cobbled streets with Java and take in the sights and the smell of the ocean. I’ll most likely be glued to my camera until about lunch time, when I plan to find a bistro with outdoor dining, so that Java and I can share a meal. I’m trying not to spoil too much for myself by looking at pictures, so it’s going to be fresh eyes when I get there.

     I’m considering setting up a ghost tour for tonight, a twofer with a carriage ride and walking portion. I’m a little on the fence about having today booked since it’s the day after an exhausting drive. I may take it easy, but then again, I may not!

05/18/2019

    Tonight I have a ghost tour on foot already booked, and I am so ready. This is a thing I don’t share too often on here, but I’m obsessed with creepy locations, urbex, history and ghost hunts. It might be juvenile, but I love it and genuinely have so much fun! I have an EMF detector on the way, and I wish it would get here already. I’m wondering if I should buy a small digital camera and try to get some apparitions?

5/19/2019

    Tonight is going to be pub crawl with a designated driver! There’s this amazing looking little ghost hunt/tour that features the haunted pubs in Savannah. And you better believe I intend to take part in it. If not that, I know about a dozen other ghost hunts I want to do. But, but I think the pub one is a good choice for my birthday-eve.

5/20/2019

     Today will be filled with taking in the sights with the Java, who, to this point, has been drowning in ghosts. I hope to find some little pet friendly shops, and I do intend to ask before I take her into any. I hope to have a list of places that are Java-Accepting before today. I want to take her on the town and show her all kinds of new stuff. This is also the day that I plan to set sail on the 7 seas in a pirate ship

    Guys. What? You can bet I’m going to try to coordinate a Wench ensemble for my grand voyage. You think I’ll find any treasure? Or maybe the treasure was the adventure we’ll have along the way. After shopping in whatever unique stores I can find, indulging my inner Pirate and some food, I’ll go back to the hotel and watch movies with Java.

5/21/2019

    I’m a little sad even writing this. Because I don’t want to think about my adventure ending before it’s even begun. I know I’ll miss my Fiance` the whole time I’m there, but I could literally travel my whole life and never get bored of the open road. I plan to stop off in whatever mom and pop breakfast diner I’ve developed a fondness for over the duration of my trip, and then hit the road with Java, bags of goodies, pictures and the memories of adventure fresh on my mind. The adventure won’t be totally over today, because the trip back is just an opportunity to see more new things. 

      Have you guys ever been to Savannah? Are there any places you would recommend that I check out? I’d love to hear about them so that I add them to my itinerary! I’m so looking forward to my trip and especially to sharing it with all of you across social media! 

 

Trying my Luck with Origin Coffee for St Paddy’s Day!

Trying my Luck with Origin Coffee for St Paddy’s Day!

   Happy St Paddys day, everyone! Or…. post-St Paddys day, since this is going up on Monday, the day after St. Patrick’s day. This weekend I hunted around town, since I feel kind of jipped by the lack of Seasonal drinks from my guilty pleasure, Starbucks. I did find a tiny Starbucks in the hospital, that had two seasonal drinks. One a Paddy Mint, which I assume would have been mint chocolate. And the other, was a Fruity Pot of Gold, or raspberry, blackberry and vanilla. The Fruity Pot of Gold was fantasic.

     Anyway, this post isn’t about Starbucks. It’s about my favorite little local coffee shop; Origin Coffee House. I walked up to their door and saw that they had not one, but three options for my festivities. I took my chance with the top option on their board; the stout. You guys may know my abivalence on whether or not I like hazelnut, counting on the chocolate and caramel toning it down.

    I took a hunch and used heavy cream, in lieu of my whole milk for the added sweetness and richness it affords. On first sight, I noticed a conspicuous lack of green. Which is more an aesthetic grievance than anything else. The drink itself is very, very rich. Almost reminescent of a syrup? It lingers sweetly on the tongue, with the strong flavor of mocha. Caramel offered a pleasant sweetness just underneah the mocha, with the nuttiness from the hazelnut being so subtle as to be nearly not there. 

     The main reason I went with heavy cream was to drown out the nutty undertones, and I’m thinking that should not have been done. I may go back and try another thing off the list tomorrow, if time allows. I’m really curious to find out whether or not I enjoy Irish Cream. So far I’m starting my St Paddy’s Day weekend on a slightly highnote, because I’m never upset when I have coffee. I feel like my choice of heavy cream may have dampened this particular drink. I’d probably love this with the whole milk- which is going to be my second taste!

New at Starbucks; Ari’s Cloud Macchiato

New at Starbucks; Ari’s Cloud Macchiato

    Good Morning, guys! If you’re living under a rock, or just don’t particularly follow Starbucks new releases, you may not have heard about the Cloud Macchiato. Otherwise, you may be fully aware of the controversy surrounding this new drink. This little cup of coffee has caused its share of strife in the vegan community due to being a collaboration between Starbucks and the musical Ariana Grande, also known as Chanel Number 2 .

    The cause for the outrage surrounding this Macchiato topped with fluffy, lightly sweetened foam, is that it’s not vegan. I wasn’t aware that Ari was vegan, but her fans are. And, they are livid. To top it off, there’s not vegan option, due to the foam that crowns it having a main ingredient of egg whites. 

    Drama aside, the Cloud Macchiato comes in two flavors, cinnamon and caramel. If you’ve been following for a while, you know I prefer the super sweet flavor of caramel in my drinks. This is no different. This post is going to be a little bit of a roller coaster, because at first, I didn’t like it. But after about 15 sips, and sloshing it in the cup, I eventually decided I kind of dig it.    

 

    I was so excited to try it, not because of the origin, but because I’ve always loved macchiatos. I firmly expected to love this right off the bat. At first sip, which I took without stirring or sloshing, was a bitter affront to my taste-buds. I mean, maybe I do like my drinks overly-sweetened, but this was on a different level. I did notice a richness hiding under the sharp bite that greeted me. And, once I got the courage to drink a little more, I notice the foam had sunken into the drink and toned down the flavor to a mild nuttiness with some kick.

    At that point, I stirred it, because I wasn’t picking too much of the caramel. Once I did that, the foam was almost completely mixed in and the caramel had come to the surface to make a difference. I think this was the point where I decided that I do sort of like this one. It’s not for those who don’t like bitterness, that’s to say it was very nearly not for me. My final impression was that it was pleasantly sweet, the foam and caramel worked together to tone down my initial impression. Even with the sweetness I was loving at this point, I had a slight reminder of the bitterness lying wait under the surface. 
 
 

Taste; /5

    I award this one a 4/5, I don’t feel like I can give it a five just because it was a little of a hit and  miss for me. In the end I did enjoy it, but it wasn’t the best macchiato. While not being the worst, either. I do think that a 4 is a fair rating for the Cloud Macchiato.

 

Hometown Cravings; Matcha with Midtown Coffeehouse!

Hometown Cravings; Matcha with Midtown Coffeehouse!

         Top o’ the morning to ye! Get ready to feel festive, and dish out pinches this weekend! For my #tryday last week, I tried the Luck of the Matcha frapp from Midtown Coffeehouse! I’ve tried matcha from Starbucks, and a few other places in the past, with greatly underwhelming results. Read: I didn’t like it. This one was a lovely change of speed to that established trend. I was super excited to give this one a try, because, well I saw the post. 
 
    Literally, how could I not be absolutely ecstatic for that? I mean, typically, I like tea. And of course, my immature self loves marshmallows. So, hypothetically this is right up my alley!  I was a little hesitant to order it, but curiosity was pushing me in the door to place my order.

     The first thing I noticed was that the scent of the drink was very mild, which followed suit with the flavor. While the color itself is somewhat unappetizing to the anti-festive, being a pastel shade of green, I found it quite spring appropriate. It was more akin to drinking an iced green tea than I’m used to from my coffeeshops. It wasn’t overly sweetened, or maybe it was, since you guys know how I like my sugar; abundant. That slight propensity does skew my tastebuds. 

     I found the sweetness to be subtle and soft, for my tastes. It was tempered with a light earthy flavor, kind of like cinnamon if I had to pick the closest spice that it reminded me of. But, probably closer to how the air smells when tea is brewing. If that had a flavor. I found myself enjoying it, despite the odds being against this drink, due to the matcha thing. The marshmallows, which I could have used to sweeten it more, ended up sitting on top of the whipped cream and being eaten alone since I didn’t need their services so much after all.

     My rating on this is….

Taste: /5

     I can think of no other rating to award the kind folks over at Midtown Coffeehouse, than a well-deserved 5/5 for making me venture outside of my comfort zone with this one. I was really hesitant to try it, and seriously, Iwhen  told my Fiance` I was going to try it. His response? “You don’t like matcha.”  I looked at him before leaving, “I know, but I gotta try it.” And try it, I did. And you know what else?

I loved it.

9 Ways to Keep Yourself Up When Times Are Down

9 Ways to Keep Yourself Up When Times Are Down

    Hey there, guys! Look at me, being on time and stuff!  If you guys follow the ol’ Tweet Machine, or even Instagram, you may have heard I’ve been cooped up in the Hospital. No biggie, as I’m bouncing back and will be released tomorrow. Most likely, by the time you read this, I’ll have been released and on my way to pick up the Riviera palette.

     This post is more a cathartic sort of thing, since I went in to edit the ThredUp videos and found that they not only look ridiculous, but they have no sound. And, of course, my current predicament. If you have never had an IV go bad in your wrist, I sincerely hope it stays that way. Typing is actually a little painful, but I’m determined to write this post. And this post, if you clicked in for the title, here are 9 ways to keep yourself cheered up when times, frankly, kind of suck. I’m really trying to push the whole ‘see the good’ thing after a literal lifetime of pessimism. So, let’s get to it!

  1. One of the big things for me right now, is online shopping. It’s horrible, yes. But, I’ve found some great things! Like these adorable Guess Booties, that I’ve legit been hunting for for months. Leave it to me to find them near the end of winter. These Steve Madden Booties, and the Jessica Rabbit x Ciate` collection. I can’t go out to shop, but dangit, that won’t stop me. Not to mention the bounty I’ve found on Reddit. Needless to say, there’s an absolutely asinine amount of reviews in my future.
  2. I’ve been thinking up a load of video ideas to start filming when I get out, and that’s kept me pretty distracted. These will hopefully have sound so that I can post them and stop looking like a big fat liar. I’ve been ‘working’ on videos for months, in between being sick and otherwise incapacitated; I will post these videos!

  3. Remember that you will feel so much better once released. This is more just a mantra, rather than something to do. But, I still find it super important.

  4. Get some quality gaming in!  No better time than your downtime to actively participate in some escapism. Pick your poison and go at it. Want to kill a bunch of things? Done. Want to raise a farm? Done. Go wild!

  5. Learn something new! It’s good to keep your head-parts active, especially when you don’t have much stimulation. Take this time to learn something or even do that schoolwork you’ve been putting off. DuoLingo is great for those of you wanting to dip your toes into new languages!

 6. Look at something pretty! I really like to pull up flickr and check out the amazing urban exploration photos people post in these sprawling French Château. I mean, I absolutely die of jealousy, but it’s still beautiful. Instagram is also pretty good for looking at pretty things, but I’m partial to Flickr. I mean look at this! How do people get this lucky?

  7. Draw or doodle! Generally it’s good to keep your hands and head occupied, but drawing also gives you a little bit of an escape. Draw people who are wearing something outlandish, animals, fantastic landscapes, whatever you can fathom. Maybe mindlessly doodle, it all helps. I mean, heck, you have time. I’m looking at you, me.

  8. Relish in doing nothing- how often is it that you get to just do nothing? With the daily grind and weekends spent with extreme wanderlust, not very often. Take this downtime to breathe. It’s not all good, but hey, it’s not all bad, either.

  9. Make something! I can’t do this right now because I don’t have my scarf that I’m working on with me, but like I said earlier, it’s a great idea to keep your hands busy and your mind occupied to help time pass. Crochet, Knitting, Crossstitch, Embroidery… these are all great to do if you find yourself in a similar situation. And my goodness, how I’d love to work on my scarf.

 

       There’s my 9 things to help you keep optimistic and okay when times are less than ideal. And let’s face it, times aren’t always ideal, so you may need to bookmark this for when times go on the decline again. Because, this life is a rollercoaster of highs and lows and you kind of have to adjust to be able to handle both as they come.

       I know I’m not your real mom, but try not to take the mobility for granted. The ability to just go, whenever is great. And, coincidentally greatly missed when you’re not able to do it. And beyond that, take time to take care of yourself! You guys are amazing, and I thank each and every one of you for joining me for today’s post. I’ll see you guys on Monday!

 

 

Hometown Cravings; Midtown Coffeehouse and I Guess I Like Hazelnut??

Hometown Cravings; Midtown Coffeehouse and I Guess I Like Hazelnut??

     Hey guys, it’s your favorite punctual blogger! I’m so sorry that  I’ve fallen behind on you, I do have a quick update on the youtubey stuff, though! I have been filming two videos and I aim to have one or the other of them up next week! I don’t want to spoil too much, but I’m kind of hype! I’m definitely planning to do a lot of reviews, while I get my bearings with the whole filming thing.

     This last week I took myself back to Midtown Coffeehouse to see what kind of new stuff they had. You guys know they always have something new every time I visit! I checked out the board, which you can see above. After looking at it for a good thirty seconds and debating, I stepped up to the counter and order the Haze. My only thought was literally, “I hope I like this,” because I know how picky I can be with flavors. Despite trying to force myself out of my comfort zone, it’s extremely hard to introduce myself to new flavor, like the haze.

     The Haze is a delectable mix of Cinnamon,White Chocolate and Hazelnut, the latter of which I’ve never liked. I took a chance on this one after the reassurance of the lovely lady behind the counter. I was ecstatic. So, quick thanks for getting me to give the haze a go!

    My immediate impression was that it had a nice earthy richness, not of espresso, but just a mild nuttiness. That’s the thing I generally despise about Hazelnut, because I don’t like “peanut-y” flavors from my coffee. I’m used to espresso, but just straight up trailmix nuttiness? Nah. I was surprised by the way the mocha and cinnamon mingled to mask the hazelnut with a soft sweetness…. dare I say, haze?

     The cinnamon, being the primary flavor, lent a nice coolness to the subtle espresso vibes that lurked underneath the richness. It was a richness that felt a little heavy on the tongue, and not in an unpleasant way. I would definitely say the Haze is another one for the people who don’t like espresso.

     I literally can’t wait to start this next leg and have time to do my editing for the videos! Guys, I’m working on them, pretty actively, aside from school work. I just… have to do something with all this makeup that’s piling up. In the meantime, while I get this started, go check out Smokey Glow, my latest favorite youtuber!
 

Whats New; February Posh Peach Edition

     Hey guys! Welcome to a new What’s New post for our very own Posh Peach, here in Columbus, GA.  Also, holy cow, is this one on time? I know the last post was a little different, but I hope you guys enjoyed it! I was absolutely floundering in my indecision on what to do with my hair. This post was gathered before my medium-chop, so it has my old hair in it- all future posts featuring the likeness of yours truly, will include my new-do, and I’m not even going to lie- I’m still way on the fence with it. I’m so on the fence that my first stop after leaving the salon was the beauty supply to grab a wig.

    That aside, I did find a few new pieces at the Posh Peach that I’m excited to share, and even brought some of it home with me (like I often do)! Without further ado, let’s get to the goods!

     I was able to find most things on the site- this was not one of them, however. It may be because this isn’t technically new to their shop, as it was on the sale rack. Who would I be if I passed up the sale rack? In the future, I think I’ll make an effort to confine my search to the newest-of-the-new for you guys! That aside, I really quite liked this romper (jumpsuit?), aside from the pesky little fact that it wouldn’t zip on the side that you can’t see. Oh, you thought I was just showing off my new tattoo? I was holding my arm in such a way to make it look zipped. That aside, I really wish this would have zipped up for me, because I really liked it! It was corduroy, which meant that it had a little give in the fabric and was warm. It broke my heart.

     I think, I would pair this with champagne accessories like a scarf or headband. Maybe a long beaded necklace, too.

 

        I did find two different pairs of corduroy pants for today’s post! I didn’t even think I really liked corduroy until just lately, but that’ll show me to think I know what I like. This particular pair is an earthy brown that I paired with their Back in Brick top, which genuinely can pass as a dress if you pair it with some super opaque tights or leggings. I thought these paired very well for a comfy and somewhat 70s vibe. I feel like a scarf would have tied it all together, and perhaps a paisley headband. Of course, my converse don’t lean to that aesthetic, and truthfully I’m at a loss for what sort of shoes I’d pair with this!

 

      This outfit was a little bit of a hit and miss with me. I wasn’t a big fan of the fit of the Spring Time in Heaven skirt or the stiffness of the material. The look between myself and the gorgeous model is a stark night and day- despite the similarities in our color choices. I really liked the colors of the skirt and was more than a little distressed that it didn’t quite suit me. The dog mama tee was just a little more sheer than I would generally prefer, as well. I feel like if the skirt ran a little larger in the sizing, it would have been fine. 

    This is the last thing that I can call new! I thought this was the Sweet Like Sugar wrap dress, but after looking at it closer I’ve determined that I need to wear my glasses more often. This is most assuredly not the wrap dress, but it certainly is adorable. I sadly, couldn’t find this item on their site after scrolling through the categories. This would be perfect for a datenight at a fair, dare I say, the upcoming Spring Fling here in Columbus? Suddenly I’ve decided that I’m lacking fair-appropriate styles and I need to fix that.

     This dress would be great with some strappy little sandals or some simple white pumps. Just really play into the sweet, femininity with a flowery necklace and, if you have long hair- a ponytail would make the whole look.

 

The Winners!

The items that went home with me from this visit, may seem familiar! They were featured in January’s What’s New Post! While I’m thinking about it, what was with that post title? Did I think I wasn’t going to be going back this year? Anyway, I’m super pleased that I was able to score my coveted funfetti cardigan and corduroy pants! Of course, since the pants are decidedly not new, I was unable to find them to provide a link.

     In this photo, I paired it with the Dog Mama shirt, that I almost bought. I decided that it was either the cardigan or it, and guys… I love me a cardigan. 

     Anyway, thank you guys for joining me for another What’s New post at one of my favorite shops in my lovely little town. And, can I just please give some props to the gorgeous ladies that model their clothes? Those are the faces of the sweet girls that work there, and they are just wonderful. Guys, please, share your secrets to looking so relaxed in front of the camera!

    I hope everyone is having a great Monday so far, and that those Resolutions are holding up for you! I, for one, have already lost my planner that was part of my resolution and I’m feeling lost without it. 🙁

20 Pixie Cuts That Might Make You Give The Look a Shot!

     Hey guys! Today’s a little bit of a different sort of post, because I’m sitting here just kind of staring at the screen fantasizing about tomorrow; I’m making a change. It’s time, right? Anyway, I wanted to share some of the hairstyles I’ve found since I set my appointment to spur me to action. It’s something I’ve been thinking about and with it being tax season, I figure why not now? In an unrelated note, you guys know any places to get good wigs?

       I’ve been scrolling endlessly on pinterest all week, drooling over so many stunning pixie cuts, that it only makes me more confused. Does anyone else never know what they want when they go to the salon? I just kind of get a vague idea and then forget it by the time I sit down. 

     I wanted to kind of share where I’m at right now- as far as ideas for what sort of pixie I’m going to be getting, since I’m so on the fence I’m sure someone else is too. Right? 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

      I’m a strange mix of nervous and excited for tomorrow- while I have all of these options that I’m kind of drawing from, I’m still a little lost. I think I’ve settled on about what I’m after stylistically, in my pixie cut and I guess I’m just hoping it looks as cute as I think it’ll be. Let me know which pixie is your favorite, and if you got the itch to take the plunge too!

 

Boutique Debut; Feeling Chic with Fabr’ik!

Boutique Debut; Feeling Chic with Fabr’ik!

     Hey guys, welcome to yet another late post. I have figuratively fallen off whatever wagon I was on that made me prompt with my posts. Must be something in the water? Anyway… excuses aside, I was going to beguile you with the apex of my Valentine’s day festivities, but I imagine that might come across as me being immodest, so I’ll give my lovely future life partner props at the end of this post!

     For the curious, you can check on Twitter for the play-by-play where I live-tweeted the scavenger hunt. I also bragged on him a little on Instagram, but not quite as much. On twitter I’m also @java_and_jeans so if you’re curious, there you are!

     Moving on to the post at hand. On my fabled Weekend of Content when I took myself to Auburn to experience some of the missed opportunities there, I found Fabr’ik. A chic and comfortable little boutique that, at a glance, was a little above  my pay grade. But, I did find that I picked the right day to make the journey, because they were having the biggest sale of the year. Lucky me! 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

      The wall of shoes in that slideshow broke my heart, due to the fact that I was fruitlessly infatuated with some white booties that ended up not being my style. All of the other shoes I fell in love with, were too small. That aside, my hunt was fruitful. 

     One of the first things I was drawn to was this fiery sequin dress, from the clearance rack. It may be a little short, but nothing that some opaque black leggings can’t remedy. I’m feeling like this would be perfect for the holiday party this year… After all, I did say I was going to wear sequins. I’m glad it fell into my lap, and was only 40 dollars!

     This was the other thing I was absolutely obsessed with, and admittedly I usually do the reverse of this. I generally save the selections for the end, but I guess I decided to put those first today. This particular outfit was just too perfect- I’m a sucker for halter-tops and the shorts were so comfortable. This will be perfect for an upcoming trip to the beach, or out of state somewhere a little warmer! I feel like some simple flip-flops and an anklet would make this.

    

     These two things, I thought were moderately similar. The pink patterned one, while cute, wasn’t quite my style as I had thought. That adorable rose patterned one was amazingly comfortable. Had nice soft fabric that feel cool to the touch… but didn’t quite fit right. I know it might look like it does, but that zipper would. not. cooperate. I think of the things that didn’t come home with me, that second romper is the one that got away. What if it did fit? 

      This last item was something that, at first, I was really feeling. Honestly, I loved the pattern of the jump suit, I liked the fabric, the top and the boots… but separately. I feel like, even though I kind of liked the boots, they too far deviated from a distinct me-ness that I’m trying to find. I don’t wear faux-snakeskin, I wear converse, suede or leather. Maybe if these were a slightly different material, I would feel otherwise. But, alas.

    The jump-suit itself, barely fit. Which legitimately upset me. I have such a hard time finding a jump-suit that actually fits. It’s either nice on my waist, and too short, or long enough but too tight. This one was the former… kind of. I think the fit is a little awkward, truth-be-told. While I loved the aesthetic of the white top with it, I couldn’t make myself love it.

      Let’s move on past that heart-break and get on to my feelings on Fabr’ik!

My general feel on Fabr’ik was a somewhat mid-to-high-end boutique in the perfect downtown location. It’s literally nestled in a 2 block radius with like 3 or 4 other boutiques. Perfect for them, not so much for my self-control.  The general aesthetic of the shop was welcoming and warm, with a strange Southern Chic vibe that I picked up from the couches with a cow skin rug.

     It felt much bigger than it looked, with the arrangement of the items. That’s a great accomplishment because it’s a fairly compact venue. I love what they did with it, andI loved the wonderful staff there, too. I will definitely be returning to see what sort of new stock they get in the next few months!

     I don’t want to bore you guys with too many of the details, since you can check out the scavenger hunt below! 

The aftermath of every thing ended up looking something like this!

 

     He had that sign custom made for our wedding this year! I’m so excited for the time to come where we can finally get married- I love this man more than anything and I’m literally so lucky that I can’t express it properly. I know this post comes a little (lottle) later than I would have likes- I’m prepping the post for Thursday and filming the Tarteist Pro Remix video, as well! 

    I’ll leave you guys with this lovely picture of us hanging out in front of the overlook at the Country Kitchen in Pine Mountain, Georgia!

(¯`*•.¸,¤°´✿.。.:* 𝒜𝒻𝓉𝑒𝓇𝓌𝒶𝓇𝒹 *.:。.✿`°¤,¸.•*´¯)

 

…wait, I lied. I do want to give props one more time. You guys may have seen a coffee sign in that Twitter story. That was inside of one of my absolute all-time favorite shops. The storefront sign probably ruins any sense of suspense here. But, I want to extend a thanks to the beautiful people over at UniquExpressions for being a part of another precious memory for us! I hope we create so many more memories with you guys! I’m currently planning another trip out there as soon as time and money permit to hit that little boutique and drink about 10 cups coffee!

    Finally, I want to close this post off with a big thank you to you, my readers. I don’t know what to say except I do see that these posts get into the double-digits, and I’m so incredibly grateful for that. I feel like maybe I’m reaching someone, and I’m just so legitimately happy that you’re here. Just a heads-up, I do plan another giveaway soon, so stay tuned for that! This next one may be physical goods that are shipped out- I’m just finalizing those plans!

          Happy Valentine’s Day (night?) guys! I wasn’t sure what to post for today, since I don’t think any of the things on the back burner are very “Valentine’s Day” appropriate. Today wasn’t projected to be really particularly Romantic or even be my Valentine’s Day. But my future husband is full of surprises, and I want to gush.

     He has an enthusiasm for embarrassing me at work, and involving my bosses… or anyone he can tell his plans. When I went on break, my boss stopped by desk and asked me to follow him. The first thing out of my mouth was, “what did I do?”  In the break room, he didn’t see what (or who) he was looking for. I went to get a drink and when I came back, I was greeted by my fiance` surrounded by a group of 5 people helping him carry 3 teddy bears, 4 vases of flowers, 3 candy hearts and a super plush and warm blanket.

     Literally, I didn’t stop blushing for about an hour.  I was reminded of my own glaring inability to plan surprises. All I can do is literally buy gifts, get excited and give them to the recipient. I don’t have the… forethought and discipline to plan things like this.

     I’m sure you guys did your own thing for Valentine’s Day, whatever that may mean for you. So, I’m just making a quick and sappy post for the occasion. My tattoo itches really bad at this point, and I’m dying for a distraction. Maybe sleep?

       I’m so proud of him, and flattered. He put together those flower arrangements himself, my favorite part is the Carnations. He knows how much I love them. These smell fantastic and my biggest sadness is that I’m terrible with plants and I know they’re not going to last long at all.

     With the admission of my inevitable defeat,  I leave you guys until Monday. I know this isn’t quite Valentine’s post I was planning, and it may not be the one you guys wanted. But hey! It’s our first Valentine’s Day together! Next year, I hope to have a plan nailed down for the occasion. Maybe 14 day event?
