30 Day challenge! [Day Thirteen]

Day Thirteen: Someplace you would like to move or visit.


I have always wanted to visit Scotland so bad. Everything about it draws me to it. The scenery is beyond beautiful, the castles are amazing, and the villages! Plus the accents are amazing as well.

I would really love to visit France as well. I find Paris to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Now I wish I had gone with the Senior class in high school on their trip to Paris.

30 Day challenge! [Day Twelve ]

I feel so behind in my 30 Day Challenge, so I decided that I would just start doing one a day again, rather than doing four today to try and catch up. Now that finals and the holidays are over for me, I will be able to keep myself on track!

Day Twelve: Bullet your whole day.

Today was Christmas! So this should be fun!

  • Wrapped most of the gifts at 2-4 am.
  • Woke up around 7:30 am to my nieces pounding on my door
  • Opened gifts with the family
    • I got:
    • Four sweaters
    • Two pairs of jeans
    • A coffee mug (random fact: I drink out of coffee cups 80% of the time)
    • A Dove body wash/shower set
    • Two pairs of pajama bottoms
    • Two books
    • A super soft blanket
    • A new bag/purse (that I had picked out for myself)
    • And money from just about anyone and everyone in my family
  • My parents were both sick so they went back to bed (we have a nasty 24 hour flu like virus going around in our house, I had it yesterday (Christmas Eve))
  • I made a salad to take to my uncle's house
  • My sister, my nieces, and I went over to my Uncle's house to visit with his family and my grandpa.
  • Ate dinner over there and played Wii
  • I was dropped off at home so my sister could take the girls to visit their father
  • Bradford then came over and we opened gifts
    • I got from him:
    • Three's Company season two on DVD
    • A really cute shirt
    • Bird picture clips 
    • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Ultimate edition. (Now I have three copies of that movie, LOVE it!)
    • a replica of Hermione's wand! (how dorky!)
  • We watched Three's Company, ate some eggs and toast, and fell asleep
  • He went home and here I am!
Now I am lounging in bed in my new, super soft pj bottoms, with my fluffy blankets. I'm so comfortable!

How was everyone's holidays?

30 Day challenge! [Day Ten and Eleven]

Sorry I missed Day Ten yesterday, I was trying to get my final paper done for the last day of class, and afterward I just wanted to sleep the rest of the day.  So today is a double post!

Day Ten: First Love and First Kiss

My first love: When I was 16, I was pretty sure that I was 'in love' with a boy named Michael. We had dated for a month before making it official and he was a real sweet heart to me. We ended up dating for 3-4 months and he actually broke up with me right before Valentine's Day and my 17th birthday. Of course I was heart broken but after I got over it, I realized I missed his mom more than I had missed him. His mom and I were really close and she is seriously the sweetest lady.

Brad would throw a fit if I said this, but it is completely true. I consider Brad to be my first REAL love. I have never had so many feelings for one person in my life. When I dated Michael, I was pretty young and didn't grasp what love really meant. But almost 4 years later, I feel like I have finally found real love and I couldn't be happier in a relationship. Brad is seriously the greatest boyfriend ever and finding him was worth all of the jerks I had to sort through.

My first kiss: Oh goodness, I think most people's first kiss is less than fairytale perfect. Mine happened when I had just turned 13 and I was 'dating' this kid named Max. We had gone to the mall and we ended up kissing in Hot Topic. How unbelievably romantic is that? ( Please note my sarcasm. )

Day Eleven: Put your iPod on shuffle and write 10 songs that pop up.

I don't have my iPod with me, so I am just going to use iTunes.

- "Hear You Me" - Jimmy Eat World
- "Tables and Chairs" - Backseat Goodbye
- "Beauty" - Tegan and Sara
- "Sea and the Rhythm" - Iron and Wine
- "I Put a Spell on You" - Hocus Pocus soundtrack
- "Vivance" - Telemann
- "Hold My Heart" - Sara Bareilles
- "I Feel Fine" - The Beatles
- "Christmas Tree" - Lady Gaga
- "Unsaid" - The Fray

30 Day challenge! [Day Nine]

Day Nine: How you hope your future will be.

I hope my future is filled with success. I hope to be living in my own house with many adopted cats from shelters (though Brad would hate that, haha). And I do hope that Brad is there with me. I also hope to have a full filling job that I wont get bored with or hate the minute I start. I also am hoping I will be able to travel when I have the time/money to do so, there are so many places I would love to go, most notably, Scotland!

But the most important thing is that I am absolutely happy. If I am completely happy with how life is going, regardless of what is going on, then I will consider it to be successful.


Wednesday is my last day of class, and I am trying to hammer out this final paper so I can just relax tomorrow, go to class Wednesday then enjoy break!

30 Day challenge! [Day Eight]

Day Eight: A moment you felt the most satisfied with your life.

A moment I felt most satisfied with my life is probably right now.

While there are still things that bug me going on in my life, I feel like I am able do work through them everyday.  I feel like I am finally going down the right roads to where I want to be in my life.

I am much happier in general as a person than I was two years ago and even if things aren't perfect, I am able to deal with the stress better. I was also able to figure out who my real friends were in the past year and being able to get rid of any negative people in my life has definitely helped. I have a wonderful boyfriend who has put up with my mood swings and who is an all around amazing person.

Now I am off to bed. My last week of classes start tomorrow and I am so ready for it to be over!

30 Day challenge! [Day Seven]

Day Seven:Your zodiac sign and do you think it fits you?

I never really look into zodiac signs to much, but I do think they are fun to read about from time to time. After reading about my sign more, I think it fits me very well.

February 19 - March 20: Pisces is the 12th sign of the Zodiac and is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions. The two fish symbolize the internal struggle of the soul within a Pisces. Often, the fish are swimming away from each other in a circle representing life after death or reincarnation. Pisces is considered a feminine or negative sign. Feminine signs are considered more passive, receptive and sensitive than masculine/positive signs. Pisces are common as inventors, writers, musicians, painters, and dancers. Pisces make great friends and mates. Pisces are extremely loyal and caring. Pisces often possess uncanny intuitive or psychic abilities.

Pisces are sensitive, humane and often idealistic. People born under this sign react emotionally to everything making them compassionate and sensitive to those around them. Rather than taking an analytical approach to life, Pisces react to the feelings of others and as a result can be very influential when they choose to be. In the right situaltion a Pisces can be capable of incredible deeds. The positive nature of a Pisces and the fact that they are tuned into the feelings of others makes them socially popular.

Being able to read and react to situations makes Pisces one of the most adaptive signs in the Zodiac. They are very intuitive and as a result can be flexible and prosper in many different situations. The intuitive nature of Pisces also makes them a very creative and imaginative sign. Pisces are often artists, writers and dreamers. The strong intuition of a Pisces can also mean that they are very spiritual.

ELEMENT: Water Pisces is one of 3 water signs in the Zodiac, all of which share similar characteristics. Water signs are typically sensitive, emotional (sometimes vulnerable), creative, sensitive and melancholic. The other water signs in the Zodiac that share these characteristics are Cancer and Scorpio.

30 Day challenge! [Day Six]

Day Six: Write 30 interesting facts about yourself.

I'm not sure how interesting these will be, but here they are!

1. I am 20 years old
2. I have one sister and one step brother (who I never really see), and I am the youngest.
3. I played the flute in my school's band from 6th grade to 12th grade. I'll admit that I miss band class.
4. I have a missing tooth on my bottom left side because my baby tooth didn't have an adult tooth under it.
5. I have been blogging since I was fifteen using various LiveJournal accounts.
6. I was too scared to get my ears pierced when I was younger so I got my cartilage pierced when I was 13. Somehow I thought getting on piercing would be better than two...I wasn't smart enough to know that cartilage would hurt more than lobes, which neither hurt much anyways.
7. I am 5'2 1/2 and have been about the same height since 6-7th grade.
8. I am naturally golden blonde.
9. I have one tattoo with three more  in mind.
10. My favorite animals are elephants.
11. My favorite Christmas gift last year was a CATS musical snow globe that my mom bought for me, so dorky, I know.
12. I have been pen palling for almost two years.
13. 90% of the movies I watch are horror movies.
14. I love reading, and have way too many on my 'to read' list.
15. My middle name is my mother's first name.
16. My sister named me after a friend she had at the time (she was 5), if my parents named me, I would have been Lauren.
17. My boyfriend thinks I can't wait to be an old lady. I guess this means I act like an old lady sometimes.
18. I really like to read about true crimes. Like serial killers, and mass murders. Kind of creepy, huh?
19. When I was 12 I was on a bowling league, I have a trophy.
20. I have an intense phobia of driving and canoeing.
21. I hate it when people chew loudly.
22. My best friend is my cat, Quinn.
23. If I watch a movie that ISN'T a horror movie, I will cry 95% of the time.
24. One of my favorite summer time foods is grape salad.
25. I have swam with dolphins in the Bahamas.
26. I have needed glasses every year since first grade, except for fourth grade.
27. I hate wearing jeans and find them uncomfortable.
28. I clean when I am angry.
29. I will let anyone borrow anything from me, except for my books, because they always come back in terrible condition or I don't get them back at all.
30. I am the only person in my family with my last name, and no I am not adopted.

30 Day challenge! [Day Five]

Day Five: A time you thought about ending your own life.

Well this isn't the most cheery subject. When I was 18 I was a very pessimistic person. I had just graduated high school and literally sat around and did nothing for weeks at a time. I rarely kept in contact with friends because they were all moving forward and going to the next step and I was staying in the same spot. I didn't have many people to talk to outside of my family and had only seen my then best friend a handful of times. My parents weren't making it any better because they would always nag me about everything and it would just create a lot of tension in the house. My sister was also having marriage issues and came to live with us for a while with her two kids (much like now...two years later). I felt like I was alone and everyone else was just there to put more stress on me. But I started to get my self back together and a year later I was a lot more optimistic.

And while my life still has a lot of stress in it, I am able to handle it a lot better than I used to.

30 Day challenge! [Day Four]

Day Four: What are your views on religion?

I don't believe in organized religion. I believe in things that I choose to believe in, no matter where they come from. I have absolutely no problem with anyone who is very religious and I find learning about religions to be interesting, but I myself do not identify with any single religion.

The only time I ever have an issue with religion is when people try to shove it down your throat. I'm sorry, but just because I don't believe in what you do doesn't make me a bad person, I don't shove my beliefs down anyone's throat. I respect other people's beliefs and I expect them to respect mine as well.

Brad has amazing socks.

30 Day challenge! [Day Three]

Day Three: What are your views on drugs and alcohol.

I'll be honest, they never really appealed to me, and even though I have tried both (drugs and drinking), it was only a small amount and I told myself to never do either again.

I find drugs to be rather disgusting and I don't really like to be around them.Yes I do have friends that do drugs, but I would never hang out with them while they are doing them or if they plan to do them while they are hanging out with me. Sorry but no.

I don't really mind drinking so much, as long as it is a manageable amount. A beer here and there or a glass of wine is fine by me, but if you are drinking to get drunk, that is where I draw the line. I think it is sloppy and I cannot stand how people can be totally different under the influence of drinking.

I could see myself drinking a glass of wine every now and then once I am of age, but everything else is a no-no for me.

30 Day challenge! [Day Two]

Day Two: Where you'd like to be in 10 years?

I would love live with Brad, and his dogs/my cats in a cozy house, much like this one:

I also see myself with a secure job. Maybe as a Pharmacist, or an elementary school teacher, as I would be 30 going on 31 by this time. I am not sure about children, I don't think I would really want to have children of my own, to be honest. But I do know that in 10 years, all I really want to be is truly happy.
 I also would have liked to traveled to Scotland by this time!


In other news, today is FREEZING! It has been snowing all day and all of the schools around here were already closing for tomorrow at 6 pm tonight! I REALLY hope that my class gets canceled for tomorrow.

I do not want to go out there, it is suppose to 'feel' like -15 degrees out and I am kind of hoping to have a snow day so I can catch up on my paper/portfolio for class, and catch up on more pen pal letters. 

What is the weather like where you live?

30 Day challenge! [Day One]

Hello! Since the last couple weeks have been slow, and the next two weeks will be slow (since I will be finishing up class) I decided to start a 30 day challenge!

Day One: My current relationship.

As most of you probably already know, I am in a relationship with a guy named Brad. We have been dating for 11 months (celebrated on December 8th!) and I am super excited about our one year coming up right after New Year's!

I will have to save the story of how we met for a post I make around our one year anniversary.
He is such an amazing person and I can't tell him enough how much he means to me.  And how thankful I am for the fact that he puts up with all my mood swings, my instant obsession with any video game he makes me play, and how much coffee ice cream I ask for.

He truly is one of the better things to come into my life and I am so, so very thankful for him.

Things Always Get Better.

Hello everyone!

Sorry I haven't updated in a while. I honestly didn't have much motivation with everything that was going on. 

For anyone who may have missed my last post, my grandmother passed away the day after Thanksgiving. My great aunt Betty, who was my grandma's sister, passed away on Thanksgiving day. Yesterday (December 3rd) was my grandmother's service. And I will be honest, I was probably the loudest crier. I am such an emotional person.

I miss my grandmother greatly.


I feel that after her service, I can move on a little bit now. I feel better and have more motivation now, but sometimes I just lay in bed and want to cry again. But I know she is in a better place, and she is happy, and I know she wants me to be happy too.

These are the last couple weeks of my class, and I have to tell you, this new teacher (we had to switch professors in the middle of the semester) is crazy! Not only is she giving us way more homework than was originally scheduled, but she is giving us two weeks LESS to get it all done in, plus making our 7-8 page report now 9-10 pages. Normally I wouldn't care, but honestly I don't really have the time to write this paper right now. Oh life.

But I can't wait until Christmas!

Bradford and I actually have quite the holiday packed next two months:
December 25 - Christmas
January 1- New Years
January 8 - Our One Year!
January 23 - Brad's 20th Birthday
February 14 - Valentine's Day
February 20 - My 21st Birthday

Crazy! But I'll admit that I am excited!

The Ones We Love Never Truly Leave Us.

Today I got the terrible news that my grandmother had passed away.

My grandparents in 1955
For anyone who does not know, my grandmother has been battling with Alzheimer's for the better part of a year and a half, along with all of the other health issues that comes along with it.

Yesterday, Thanksgiving day, my great aunt Betty had passed away. My grandfather, who has taken care of my grandmother along with the help of hospice, had a feeling they would pass away on the same day, since they were sisters. He was a day off, but still very close.

My grandparents and I at Disneyworld in 1995

My grandmother was the best of the best. She was a nurse for over 30 years, and always knew how to make you feel better. She would always bake cookies, pizza pie, and pumpkin rolls for the holidays. Plus she always made the best mashed potatoes and gravy.

She would hem my pants when I was 12, because my 5'2 statue would always end up ripping the back of my pants.

She was the chatterbox of the family. I could remember my mother being on the phone with her for hours at a time, and my grandmother would always talk her head off at family gatherings. She was always laughing and always smiling, something I miss the most.

She had a major part in raising me, as my parents got a divorce when I was young, and she was always there to color with when no one else was. Plus she was always happy to rat my mom out about things she did as a kid that got her into trouble.

My grandparents and I at my high school graduation in May 2008

The last day that I saw her was yesterday, for Thanksgiving. She wasn't herself at all, and she hadn't been for over a year. But I told her I loved her, and I told her goodbye when I left.

In a sense, my family and I are a little revealed. We, of course, never wanted her to leave us, but the life she was living was not living at all, and it was the life she always hated. She couldn't move on her own, she couldn't speak, she couldn't eat or drink. She never wanted to live the life she had seen in patients she worked with so many times.

But I know she is in a better place now, wherever that may be. I have a feeling she is sitting with the rest of her family, gardening or hemming more pants for me when the time comes to see her again.

Wednesday Wishlist: Christmas List!

I know we are not even passed Thanksgiving yet, (which is tomorrow!) but I have seen some Christmas list posts on a couple blogs, and with all the Christmas songs and items in store, I am already getting into the spirit! So here are a couple items from this year's list!

These are just a few of the highlights from my wish list, most being books, gift cards, money, and "Happy Days" and "I Love Lucy" on DVD. Totally not that exciting of a list! Oh well!

What is on your Christmas list this year?

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Study Day!

Today is homework day for me! Except I am not so excited.

Today, hopefully, I will be working on my English paper that is due tomorrow that I have barely started.
I am such a procrastinator!
But really, I need to write this paper even though I will end up browsing the internet for a couple hours and then get too tired to write the paper. Buh!

Who else has issues getting their homework done because they procrastinate too much!?

Things I Love Thursday!

Time for another round of Things I Love Thursday!

1. Sara Bareilles' "Kaleidoscope Heart"
I have been listening to this album SO much the past month and a half, it is ridiculous! If you haven't heard it, I highly suggest it!

2. Pen Pal Letters!
I have so many letters that I need to reply to and I keep getting even more. Which. actually, it keeps me a little busy on my down time, so that is a plus! I love pen pals! I have a huge box that if FULL of letters...and I mean FULL of them. I may have to go buy another box soon!

3. Creepy Pasta!
I have been reading so many creepy stories on LiveJournal communities, people have even posted 'stories' from creepypasta.net. I get legit creeped out by them all and can never sleep!

The fact that it looks like it is squashed in a bookshelf completely sold me. I have no idea if it is a real house (probably not) but if it is then I would be trying to buy that so fast!

5. Kittens!
I have been itching to get a kitten, but will hold off on it for many reasons. One of the big ones is because I have no idea how my cat, Quinn, will react to a new cat since he is the 'baby' of the house and the last cat to be added to the family. Such a spoiled cat too! But this kitten above is so, so adorable!

What things have you been loving this week?

10 Months...

April 2010

Yesterday was Brad and I's 10 month anniversary. 

I honestly can't believe that it has already been 10 months, yet at the same time, I can't believe it hasn't been longer. He is honestly the best person I have met in my whole life, as cliché as it sounds.

January 2010

How we met is a long, and maybe a confusing story for some. So I wont type it all out here.
We met in December, the day after Christmas, and after that day, the rest just kind of took off.  We dated for a couple weeks before becoming "official" on January 8th.

February 2010

We are so different, yet so alike at the same time. He is a total guy (cars, video games, paint ball) and I'm much more of a girly girl these days (dresses, make up, bubble baths). Yet we have both rubbed off on each other. I now play Call of Duty among other video games with him. And he has taken me to go see CATS, seriously, not many guys would sit through that. And a couple more ~girly~ shows that I used to watch he now watches all the time. (I will keep those shows unnamed because I know he will get mad at me!). I listen to his music, and he deals with me playing Joseph Gordon-Levitt singing "Bad Romance" on repeat. He dress shops with me and I offer to go to his car shows, but I think he is too embarrassed to take me because I know nothing! Haha =]

And he is probably the only person that will lay in bed ALL day and watch stupid SyFy movies with me...or the Friday the 13th movie marathon.

September 2010

He is literally my best friend. I couldn't ask for a better boyfriend/best friend. He does way too much for me and he doesn't have to. I can be 100% myself around him and that rarely happens.  He is always the first person I go to about anything, ANYTHING. And he gets my dumb jokes, or just laughs to make me feel better about how lame they are.

October 2010

I love this guy so much more than I could ever explain. He has completely changed my life, the way I think of myself, and the way I view things.

I couldn't see myself with anyone else, and I haven't been happier.

(Belated) Things I Love Thursday!

I know this is late but I ended up sleeping almost all day yesterday because I had a terrible headache!

1. Harry Potter
Can you believe that the movie series is coming to an end? I know there is two parts to this one, but just the fact that Deathly Hallows is coming out is mind boggling. I remember the first time I saw the trailer for Chamber of Secrets and wasn't used to it because it felt like Sorcerer's Stone had just come out. My 11 year old self is quite upset that after the second part comes out, 10 years of my life will be over. I guess this is the last part of my childhood that is still happening, and I know when it is over, my childhood will be officially over.

2. Dream Kitchen
This is my dream kitchen! Seriously. The tile floor, the yellow walls, the 50's feeling. It is perfect!

3. Old Ginger Ale Ad
The minute I saw this ad, I cracked up! The kid's face is just priceless! I immediately needed a poster of it. While I am still looking for an actual poster, I think I may just end up printing it out on photo paper.

 4. Cats and Dogs
While just about everyone knows I am a cat person, I can't handle myself when it comes to cats and dogs fighting. Play fighting...or annoyed fighting, not ACTUAL fighting. But it is just so comical, who can't laugh at it?

5. Old Zoog Disney shows and movies
I seriously miss zoog disney. Mainly Disney Channel from 1997-2001. I actually found Bug Juice 3 on youtube. All the episodes. I spent hours watching it. Who remembers that show?! I am looking for So Weird next. They give me a serious case of nostalgia and I wish they had a channel that is just all old zoog disney, because honestly, I cannot stand what is playing on disney anymore.

She says she's leaving on a Sunday...

Hello everyone!

So it is the week before Halloween and I couldn't be more excited! Yet I am still upset that October went by so fast and I was sick for half of it. But I have been watching horror movies all week on AMC! I can't get enough of them!

So this week is going to be fun (hopefully).

Wednesday- is my professor's last day in class. She told us news to day that her husband (who is in the military) is getting transferred back to Texas and they want him there next week. So it was a sudden thing and she feels really bad for having to leave us and having to find a replacement teacher for the rest of the semester. This actually really upset me because I LOVED her! She was so nice and was very understanding about everything, and would talk about movies all the time in class. I just hope that the replacement is nice as well, because nice teachers/staff at my small community college are hard to come by!

I also have to go and drop my other class this week, I hate going to main campus, which is probably why it has taken me so long. Buh.

Friday! Brad and I are (planning on) going to a haunted house. Erebus is a 4 story (I know it looks like three stories, but I believe one is a basement) walk through haunted house and I am so excited to go, I haven't been to a haunted house in 5 years. Seriously? It's been that long? I always want to go to them (who doesn't) and there have really been only two that have scared me, but I think this one will!

Saturday! Brad and I are planning on going to the movies to see Saw 3D. I thought I heard on the tv that they have a 2D movie as well, and I would rather see that, as I don't really like 3D too much. It hurts my eyes and makes me sick. Which upsets me that EVERY MOVIE is in 3D now. Buh!

I really want to see Due Date as well. And I think I'm going to have to see it twice (once with Brad, once with my mother) And I really REALLY hope this one is good because it is so hard for me to find a comedy movie that I actually think is funny.

SUNDAY! HALLOWEEN! My nieces are dressing up as butterflies and going trick-or-treating for the first time. I am on candy duty with Bradford if he is coming over for Halloween. I won't lie, part of me wants to take them trick-or-treating, only because I miss doing it myself.

What are your plans for Halloween? 
Are there any good movies that you want to see?
Have you gone to any haunted houses this year?!

Things I Love Thursday!

I have read many blogs that do a "Things I Love..." and I started doing one on my LiveJournal for Tuesdays. But with my classes being Monday and Wednesday, Tuesday is my 'make sure to get all my homework done' day, and I just don't have time to do it. So I have moved it to Thursdays!

1. Friday the 13th marathon.
There has been a Friday the 13ths marathon going on all week, and I love it! I haven't seen a lot of the movies in a while and half the time, when I do watch one, I have no idea which one it is!

2. America's Next Top Model
I have been super sick the past couple days, and today I ended up missing class and staying in bed all day. I ended up watching cycle 5 all day, even if I did fall asleep halfway through. I always seem to watch the same cycles though, nothing past cycle 7. For some reason I don't like the newer ones.

3. This shower!
My goodness! I would love this shower/bath tub. I could see myself in it all day, every day.

Favorite Videos this week.

Thanks to my boyfriend, Bradford, and the help of Dave and ChuckTheFreaks' (a radio station in Michigan) website, I have stumbled upon a man named Steven Kardynal. He is one of the funniest youtubers I have seen in quite a while. I spent all night watching the Peacock video.

And the fact that he lives in Michigan and I could run into him at any point, makes it all the better.

Kiwi's Blogger Follower Swap!

Lately I have been swapping on a site called Swap-bot! It is pretty amazing and an easy way to meet pen pals or share your crafts. In this case, to share your BLOG!

Kiwivandal is hosting a swap where you meet new bloggers! Which you can find here!

This is how it works. You sign up for the swap,  (it is newbie friendly! So even if you just signed up for this swap, you will get in!) and you post your blog link in the comments. The deadline is October 24th. So make sure you are signed up for that swap before then!

From there you...

"Create a post on your blog entitled: Kiwi's Blogger Follower Swap. Once partners are assigned go to your partners blogs (you will have 5), read them, follow them and write a comment on the post with the title: Kiwi's Blogger Follower Swap - this way your partners know you were there and that you have hit the follow button."

This is a great way to meet new bloggers or find blogs you enjoy reading!

Picture dump from the zoo!

Bradford and I went to the zoo yesterday to celebrate our 9 month anniversary. We didn't snap as many pictures this time, mainly because we had been to the zoo a couple months earlier and I accidentally left those pictures on there as well, so I didn't know how much space I had for photos.

Plus there were A LOT of children there this time, it was crazy! But here are some of the ones we did take! The photos are out of order, but I am far too lazy to put them in order, and I don't remember which animals came before others!
