Last Friday Night

Little Man and I had a super busy weekend. My best friend and my mom were both in town (not together of course), so we had to visit with them. The crappy weather of the weekend was not about to ruin my good time!

Thursday night, we met up with my best friend Tera and went shopping…well, window shopping since we only actually bought peppermint hot chocolate and a muffin at the coffee shop in Books A Million.

I have no idea why it's so bright! Stupid Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Friday night, my youngest brother had his senior night for marching band so we stayed for the whole football game. Little Man seemed to like it, except for when he got hungry of course.

We were very bundled up!

Saturday, we got lunch, went shopping, and had dinner with my mom and two brothers. Little Man stole a chicken wing from my plate at lunch (no, I didn’t let him keep it long enough to get to the bone), slept for an hour while we shopped, and had some green beans at dinner so he had a good time (he loves food).

Yep, we wore matching shirts.

Today, we cleaned, took naps, and watched movies so we spent the day in our pajamas.

My husband surprised me with a Marvel pillowcase and a Big Bang Theory throw blanket!

What Means The Most

My blog will be a month old tomorrow so I’ve decided that I’m going to do a little monthly review every month. When I started this, I didn’t think I’d get any views or followers. I mean, I hoped like everyone does, but I didn’t set my hopes too high. As of right now, I have a total of 74 views and 13 followers! To any and all readers, THANK YOU! I get excited every time I get an email about another follower or like. A few days ago (Thursday to be specific), this blog went international with its first view in Canada! Today, there have been 2 views in INDIA! It feels awesome to be able to have readers spread so far! Again, THANK YOU ALL! This is my tenth post too! Lots of celebrating over here!

Yesterday, I said I’d write about my brothers today since I’ve started talking about them more. I’m the oldest of three and the only girl and we are basically three years apart (I’m 3 years and 12 days older than Mack and he is 2 years, 10 months and 18 days older than Bryan). We’re 23, 20, and 17 respectively. We used to fight like CRAZY when we were in the older kid/teenager phase, but now that we’re all practically adults, we get along amazingly.

We're strange...

Mack is my best friend, he ranks over my husband and my best friend Tera by far. I mean, he is my brother after all. We enjoy most of the same things, movies, music, people we can and can’t stand, pretty much everything. I’m sure he’ll have some opinions about my last post, everyone has their own thoughts after all. He is the person I text all day long (even though he only lives 4 blocks away), he’s the first one I tell about all my blog news, we have a movie marathon coming up where we’ll hopefully just sit in front of the TV, watch movies, eat snacks, and complain/sing/talk throughout every movie we watch. Of course, we’ll quote and sing along with the movies too, we’re not crazy.

Bryan is the baby of the family so naturally, we pick on him more than each other. Since he’s gotten older, he’s come up with great comebacks. He has the most nicknames of anyone I’ve ever met in my entire life, some of which Mack and I can’t remember the origin (once we called him Sheryl Crow?). He is currently a senior in high school and has been applying to colleges like crazy. I wish I had the desire to go to college like he does. He plays saxophone (don’t ask me which kind, it changes from season to season) in the marching and jazz bands and the senior night for his marching career is coming up on November 7. I’ll probably be writing about it and how much I cried because my baby brother is a SENIOR. At his graduation in May, I’ll probably be a complete WRECK!!!

Well, now you all know how much I thank you and how much I love knowing that people actually read what I have to say. Feel free to give feedback, heck, I’ll even take negative comments or disagreements. That just shows that you read the post! 🙂 I’ll be back tomorrow with the next day of the blogging challenge.

I Do

Bonjour! Parlez-vous français? No? Good, me either. Happy Friday everyone! In honor of it being Friday, here’s a Flashback Friday picture.

Continuing the September Blogging Challenge, today is my top 5 favorite hobbies/pastimes. This is a tough topic, but not as difficult as yesterday’s was. These aren’t in any specific order.

First, I love listening to music. I recently reloaded my iPod so I’ve been rocking out a lot more than usual. Right now, it’s only got a few singers and soundtracks but it’s more than it had for the last year. I like all kinds of music from First of the Year by Skrillex to First Time in Forever from Frozen (I feel that’s a HUGE range).

My second favorite hobby is playing with my 6 month old son. He’s right at the age where he giggles at the smallest things that happen and his little laugh is super contagious.

Third, I love writing. I don’t get much of a chance anymore but when I was about 16 or so, my brother and I used to write fanfiction like crazy. We would post a new story almost week. If you’d like to read the one I wrote, click here. It uses the characters of Grey’s Anatomy and puts them in high school.

My fourth favorite hobby would have to be watching movies. My DVD collection contains about 50 movies, most of which I bought myself (thank you $5 bin at Walmart) but some were given to me as gifts for Christmas or my birthday. My brothers and I used to have movie marathons every weekend when we all still lived with our dad. I’ll be writing a post about my brothers probably tomorrow so you can put faces to them.

My last and final favorite hobby is playing game apps on my phone and tablet. I have an iPhone and an Android tablet so I’m able to get any app that looks interesting to me. Right now, I’m addicted to Angry Birds Go! and like most smartphone owners, Candy Crush. The only time I’m really able to play is when the baby is sleeping but I fully take advantage of that time.

Only 4 days left of the blogging challenge, but hopefully this week of writing will help my creative juices flow and I’ll be able to add a post everyday. So let me know, what are your favorite hobbies/pastimes? I’ll be back here tomorrow to write the next installment of the challenge and possibly write a second post about my brothers.
