a happy list

blank canvases
my library card
my man
getting mac and cheese brought to me for lunch at work
lazy mornings and snuggles
no school
laughing for no reason


Today was a grumpy day.
It has not been the best of weeks, so I suppose that was a fitting way to end it.
I finished this book yesterday.  I kept picking it up today just because I wanted to keep reading and taking in the inspiring words inside.  Kelle is just super great.  And it was a most excellent book. 
Also, my plants are all growing.
Well almost.
We have a little squash, several forget-me-nots, some small onions, an aloe plant that is looking much better than a few days ago...
and no more daisies.

my four fears

Today's post is easy, because I am afraid of exactly four things.

1: Spiders
I just cannot explain enough how awful they are - if they're in my house I suppose.  If they're outside, they're tolerable, but inside, they are surely there to attack me, and they are in my house with that intent alone.

2: The dentist
This fear stems from the time I went to the dentist when I was eight years old, and he pulled out two of my teeth without telling me he was going to.  He did that a few more times, and now any time I have to go to the dentist it's like the most ridiculous ordeal.  I am twenty years old and I still cry sometimes.  Oh and having to get my wisdom teeth out is like, this giant cloud of scaryness hanging over me all the time.

3: Airplanes
I have never flown, and I'm sure once I do fly a few times this fear will go away.  Everyone always tells me that there are fewer airplane crashes than car crashes.  And this is true, I just really hate the fact that it's way more likely that I survive a car crash than a plane crash.  Something goes wrong with your plane, and you're pretty much dead.

4: Lightning
I like rain.  I like going outside in the rain.  But if the lightning gets too close, it's a deal breaker.

I suppose there are other things, but they come and go.  I'm afraid of these four things all the time.  Almost.
I don't remember where I got this picture.  I didn't take it.  But it's cool.

what i do.

Today's post is easy, because at this point, I barely have a job.

So what do I do?

I read good books
make art
watch too much netflix
snuggle my man
try to be a good cook, 
a good homemaker, 
and keep an adorable apartment
I listen to mika too loud 
and sing along (badly.)
I blog (also badly.)

and most importantly

it is summertime, and I am happy.

favorite blogger?

I love a lot of blogs.  It's partly why I made one of my own.  There were all these awesome people I wanted to follow and be friends with. (That maybe sounded creepy.)

One of my favorites is lex at he and i.  Her blog and little family are both adorable and I totally wish we were real life friends.  Bonus, she's currently hosting a giveaway (so I get to share with you all how awesome lex is and get extra points!)

day four - a quote

(via pinterest)

This quote is perhaps my favorite from les miserables.
I like that it comes at the very end of the show, after everyone has been through hell and back,
as a reminder
that everything turns out right in the end.

day 3: things that make you uncomfortable.

that last picture seriously describes me perfectly.  I'd rather wear a dress any day.  Or shorts.  Shorts are much better than pants.  Pants are the worst.

But really - talking on the phone.  I can't stand talking on the phone to people unless I know them pretty well in person.  When husband and I were dating, we had to do long distance summers, and we'd talk for hours.  Talking on the phone to somewhat when I don't even know what they look like is just really bad.  I have had a couple phone interviews for jobs - they were awful.  I didn't get the jobs.  Probably because they could tell I was shaking with nervousness the entire time.

the end.

I'm so pro at this blogging thing.

a day behind.

So I found this and I wanted to do it.
I'm already a day behind.  Go me.

So, starting now (which will make this the "blog every day from may second to june first challenge")

the story of my life:

I was born in the summer.  This was excellent until I was fifteen.  Then it seemed like I had to wait much longer than everyone else did to date and drive and all that wonderful stuff you get to do when you turn sixteen.  I have a really great mom, and an excellent dad.  I also have two younger sisters, lou and mags, and one male sibling, also younger.

I was very much not a tomboy.  I loved pink and pretending I was a disney princess.  I tried a lot of sports and was awful at all of them.  I've since taken up running (sort of) because I figure I can't be bad at it.

I believe that every kid has an awkward stage.  Mine was very long.  I was an awkward kid, and an awkward teenager.  I'm probably now an awkward adult.  Luckily through all the awkwardness, I found myself someone to marry. 

I met husband my freshman year of college when we lived in the same dorm.  We dated for (almost) two years and then became Mr. & Mrs.  We're currently working on finishing school (because I didn't go to college to get married, I came to get a degree) and living happily ever after.

We have a happy life, and I wouldn't trade it for anything at all.
