montana update

Oops, I told you guys that I'd be announcing the Ten Favorite Things topic today, but I still have a few things to sort out, so that'll come tomorrow! Sorry! For now, here's what I've been up to.

Handsome left for work this morning, so I have a few days to myself (boo), but I guess its a good time to catch up on blogging/reading. I've been slacking since I've been here, and my heart hasn't been into my blog as much as it should be, but I'm just trying to spend as much time with him as possible. So if that means that the blog has to take a back burner. that's okay with me. But I do apologize, and I promise that I'll do as much as I can in the next few days while he's gone to get back into it! We have some exciting things coming up! Don't forget about January's Ten Favorite Things link up on the 7th! Also, I have something exciting for you all on New Year's Day!

A few things:

one. Handsome and I have just been relaxing, really. We went on a date to a little steakhouse here and then saw Catching Fire (finally). It was so good! And I got to wear my Hunter boots finally!

two. I'm pretty sure Handsome's basement is haunted. It looks like its straight out of a horror movie. He ven calls it "the conjuring basement" like in the movie. Ugh...that's where the laundry is.

three. I mentioned that I read The Fault in Our Stars and that really got me in the reading mood, so I borrowed a book from Chelsea called Riptide and I just finished that one, too. Holy cow that book was intense, and I loved it! I love any type of crime thriller novels. This one was good, I definitely recommend it! We're going to head to Barnes & Noble tomorrow to get some more books, so if you have a suggestion, let me know!

four. Handsome let me drive his truck last night to go get us food. I made Chelsea come with me and I was scared shitless because I've never really driven it before, and I'm used to my tiny little lancer. And of course, I had to do like four u-turns and pull into a driveway the size of a pretzel stick to get to where we were going. But I made it! So that's the most exciting thing happening in my life right now...

five. Chelsea and I got our nails done today. That was an experience.. They messed up her toes and my nails, and then we found out it was $55 just FOR A MANICURE! Uhm, excuse me. Take this shit off. I almost died and now I'm really broke. So that's good..

six. I couldn't share what I'm listening to with you last week because it was Christmas, and I have a special surprise for next wednesday, but I just have to share with you two of Jake Owen's new songs because I'm obsessed and they're amazing. Enjoy!

Basically, I don't have much to share (obviously). I'm just enjoying my time with my man and soaking it all up before I have to head home in a couple of weeks! I'm having such a good time and I really like Montana. Every time I'm with him I'm reminded of how perfect life's going to be when I can finally live with him! I can't wait. He's such a sweetheart, and I'm the luckiest girl in the world!

Also, with the start of the new year, I really want to focus on writing things that you guys love to read! So, I want to hear from you: what kind of posts do you like to read from me? Is there something you'd love to see more or less of? Let me know! And be honest! I know that this is my space and I can share whatever I want (and I'll always do that), but it would be helpful to hear from you!

  2. I'm glad that you are having a good time and are able to spend time with your man! Don't apologize for being busy :) $55 just for a manicure is insane, yikes!

  3. Spend time with him because it's even more important than anything else :) haha the conjuring basement? I liked that movie but I'd faint there , shucks the laundry!

  4. He should definitely come first! :) You're a good woman to realize that! :) Did they at least fix your nails and her toes? For $55 they'd better!
