Let's Continue to Get Aquatinted!

Before I start this weeks new post my #3 was a lie! 

I do not love using twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! 
I know for a blogger this is shocking! I actually do use Facebook but I don't even have accounts for twitter or Instagram. I just don't want to be that socially connected and see no real use for them. I know people who love using it though and it is super hip with people my age I'm just not into it.

So now you know I've lived in 3 different states. Florida, Georgia, and New York! I've lived in Florida the longest. I was born in Florida and lived there until I was 9. My Dad's job moved us for a half of year to New York when I was in Kindergarten. I first went to Kindergarten in New York and it was only a half day. I went home and ate lunch with my parents and then napped until my brother got home from first grade. Then we moved back to Florida and I went to full day Kindergarten. I still got to take naps though and I always fell asleep. I only remember this because I really wanted to be the "wake up fairy" who got to wake everyone up with a wand except I never got to because I was always sound asleep.  I digress when I was 9 my Dad's job moved us again to Georgia where we lived until I graduated from high school. I was in a rush to get back to Florida for college and have stayed here every since.

Speaking of college...that is where I met my fiancé and it was at a frat party. It was during Greek Week and my roommate said she knew this guy would be perfect for me. Well he had a girlfriend at the time so we started out as just friends but 6 months later we started dating and as they say the rest is history. 

Now for this week!

We're playing the Noun Game! You just name your favorite person, place, thing, or animal.



This has to be my handsome fiancé! He is my best friend, true love, faithful partner who always encourages me, makes me laugh, and makes me the best most complete person I can be.


This is super easy the beach of course! I love the way the sand feels between my toes, the smell of salty air, the sound of the waves crashing in, the beautiful blues and greens of the ocean.


My iPhone is my favorite thing. I take it everywhere with me. It helps me stay connected to my loved ones. My family lives far away so it's important to me to keep in touch. I also like playing games on my phone while I'm waiting for something. I enjoy texting my friends to catch up with them.

This is a hard one because there are just so many animals I love. I need an animal category.
Safari animal: Giraffes
 I love the print and the long lean look of them. I think they're incredible creatures!
Arctic animal: Penguins
There are so many types of penguins to love! I love the way they waddle, slide on their bellies, and huddle together. 
Pet: Dogs
Although I've never had a dog I love them! My parents now how the cutest little dog name Lucy and I wish she were mine! I know I know they're a lot to take care of...that's why I don't have one yet.


  1. I am definitely a beach and iphone lover as well! The puppy is adorable!
