Black Friday!

Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving!! I sure did.... I stuffed myself silly! At least I ran a 5K in the morning to counteract the amount of food that was consumed. I think I still gained at least 3 pounds though. It was worth it. 

I have to admit that I already got a start on Christmas! I ordered my cards on Shutterfly and I couldn't be happier with them! They gave me a code so I could post it on here and I get $10 dollars off my next order so I figured might as well share! 

I also survived my first black friday experience. And it was nothing like you see on TV. I just went to Target this morning at 9am and it was packed at all! It was actually quite enjoyable. I sipped on a coffee and got a few things checked off my list. To be honest though, I snagged a few good deals for myself. I couldn't help it! =)

live and let live.

Going through my drafts. I opened this one up that I wrote almost a year ago in December. I have no memory of writing it, what it's about, or even who. But I liked it. I'm posting it now for others to read. Thanks for indulging me in my random blog updates. =) 

I'm going to tell a story. If not for your pleasure then for my memory. 

So I was pmsing...
Getting mad at someone that didn't necessarily do anything wrong but in my eyes they were just being annoying. I was being super stubborn about the situation.  
Anthony was around for the whole exchange.

He called me on my shit. 
I got mad. 
But then he came back to me and said... 
"you know i think one of your best qualities is that you live and let live.." 
He went on to say that he admires this in me and it makes him try to do this as well and not be judgemental. I can honestly say that he made my attitude change right away. 

He thinks this of me. We have been together for 5 years and he has never said those words to me. It was a really awesome feeling to hear the person that you love say kind words to you about you. 

I just want to remember this. That someone thinks this of me. So when I start being judgy about something and I can reflect and know that someone looks up to me and that I should change my attitude.

I love Anthony for reminding me to act more like myself. 

Also,  wouldn't that be a cool tattoo? Live and Let Live. I like it. 

4 years ago.

Four years ago I wrote my first blog post. (CRAZY)

After California voted YES on Prop 8. After Barack Obama become our 43rd president.

Here we are again. After all is said and done. Obama is still our president and I couldn't be happier with that! I know where he stands with a lot of the issues that matter most to me!

As for equality and marriage rights.. Other states last night voted and approved those rights! Progress!! It's awesome to see us moving FORWARD.

I hope we can all come together. Because this is our America. We make it what it is... together.
