sew crazy

my new addiction is embellishing shirts so i spent my friday night sewing ruffles to add to a tank top.
i sent this to my man to show him

and he showed me this.

needless to say, we both "sewed" our friday night away. .

mini golfing with mitch

was perfect.

he knows one of the ways i feel loved is when i get to spend quality time with my favorite people.. so for my birthday he gave me a date for dinner and mini golf. the weather was perfect, believe it or not.

i love
my brother..
arizona sunsets..

my new glittery gold gems ..

and the fact that i was on one course, hit the ball so hard that it went past my course and onto another guys course, into the sliding doors and a hole in one.. he and everyone who saw was amazed.

i think that was pure luck; cause mitch ended up beating me..

bowling like you've never seen

we bowled on monday night. my family is very transparent. you can read them by looking at their faces. trust me.

mitch beat the whole crew with: 148!
we on the other hand, didn't do so hot..

neither did they.. but we still had fun.. g hates mustard so we put it inside his finger hole in his ball. yeah. he didn't think it was as funny as we did..
oh mitch..
oh how those dimples melt me..
hey, i got some strikes, believe it or not.

dang, i love this man..

thats besides the point.. here's the bowling crew..

lets just say the people around our lanes were veryyy entertained. we will leave it at that..

{no, i didn't bowl in flip flops, i took my shoes off before the family picture, i should've known better}

how i feel:

"there's a place, i've been lookin for that took me in and out of buildings behind windows, walls
and doors and i thought i found it couple times even settled down then i'd hang around long enough to find my way back out i know now
that the place i was tryin' to reach was you right here in front of me
and i wouldn't change a thing
i'd walk right back through the rain back to every broken heart on the day that it was breakin' it's amazin' what i let my heart go through to get me where it
got me in this moment here with you and it passed me by god knows how many times i was so caught up in holdin' what i never thought i'd find i know now there are a million roads to take to get me in your arms this way i'd relive all the years and be thankful for the tears i've cried with every stumble, step that led to you and got me here to a love i'd never thought i get to get to, here and if that's the road god made me take to be with you..that got me, here
right here"

{i'm so thankful for life with my man, he's more than i ever dreamed
my future IS bright and i love it..}

nothing like

reading a good book..
putting sand between your toes..
being in good company..

feeling like life's so good that you have to jump for joy..

having amazing weather..
and getting a piggy back from your little bro..

now, i'd say thats a pretty dang good day.

he's the best

he knows how much i love bowling. so he literally called 20 bowling alley's to find pins for sale and went to 4 goodwills to find a ball.
he suprised me and we bowled in a parking lot. i am proud to say that i got 3 strikes in a row. it's the truth.
dang i love this man. he makes life so entertaining and wonderful.

{11 weeks with audition rotations in different states better go fast.}

goodbye spending every free second with him;
hello- sewing headbands, quilts, clothes, reading, time with girlfriends and family.
thank goodness for phones and skype.
