Blog Feature!

Happy Wednesday!! Half way through the week everyone!

Today is a pretty exciting day for me! {AV} over on {long distance loving} is featuring me today in  her weekly series {distance makes the heart grow fonder}. She features a couple every week who have gone/are going through a long distance relationship.

It's a pretty cool series so you should definitely check it out. This week it's about me and my man's successful long distance relationship throughout my undergraduate time.

Now onto, today's post! Here is another pre-purposing themed post. If you are on Pinterest you've probably seen these a bit but I am really loving these fun ideas to use PAINT CHIPS with. I'm pretty much obsessed!

And best part? They are free!! Just go to your Home Depot, Lowe's, whatever home improvement store you have and stock up!! Here are some of my favorites!

I seriously can't wait until Winter Break so I can make a ton of Christmas colored garlands for the house!! So cheap and easy to decorate with!

And how cool is the one in the picture frame?! It totally looks like it could be a painting! Anyone loving these like me? The table is another favorite of mine! It's such an easy way to spruce up a boring coffee table!

Sorry for Slacking!!

Hello again!! I'm sorry for being gone so long! These past few weeks have flown by being sick and having midterms, midterms, and more midterms. And on top of those my boyfriend got an absess in his throat the day before my biggest midterm! Great timing, right?

Thankfully he is better and the midterms are finally done!! This picture sums up how I've been feeling the past weeks....OVERWHELMED!

Now that I'm back, I'll pick up with one of my favorite posts of the week! Oh How Pinteresting Wednesdays!

Here are some of my favorite pins lately! A combo of humor and fashion! Enjoy!

First off I want to thank everyone who sent me warm wishes for me and my boyfriend's anniversary on Friday! Your comments truly made me smile so thank you :)

When I got home from school I was welcomed with these beauties!
I've never seen such big roses! He definitely scored some brownie points and I was not expecting any gifts at all(we agreed no gifts) but I'll always accept flowers. :)

Since I was home earlier than I had planned we were able to go for a 4 mile run together which was great. He is the best running buddy. Not the typical thing most people do on an anniversary but hey it works for us.

Next we headed to dinner at Duke's Huntington Beach and it did NOT disappoint. I don't really like fish but I will eat Duke's fish. Everything there is good so you won't lose!
Fried Calamari=YUM!!
His Mai Tai and my "Tropical Itch" They were very tasty and very strong!
My parm crusted Opah! It's a very mild fish and is delicious!
His barramundi. It was a special and was a-maz-ing!
Of course, the HULA PIE! There's a coupon on the website for a free one!
I'm not even exaggerating the food was so good! Pricey but well worth it for an anniversary! And that Hula heaven! It was a great anniversary night.

The rest of my weekend was spent studying anatomy for my first grad school midterm which was yesterday and why I didn't post. Over all I think it went well so I'm hoping for a good grade. :)

And for those of you who were wondering, no ring yet. I'm expecting one for a while and probably would have screamed if he proposed on Friday so I'm not disappointed :-p.

And speaking of engagements! My cousin got engaged on Sunday!! Yayyyy! I have yet to see a good picture of the ring or meet her fiance(that's weird to say lol) but from what I've heard from her parents he is a really good guy. They are thinking of waiting until 2013 for the wedding but I say hurry up!! I don't want to wait that long for her to get married!

Until tomorrow I'll leave you with this....
Sorry, couldn't help it. Had to share! 0:-)
