I’m Engaged!!!

I’ve been spending Christmas with my boyfriend’s (fiance!) family. Last night we went for a little walk and he asked me to marry him. I’m pretty thrilled and excited and he also got me the exact ring I wanted which makes this even more exciting :) A Christmas eve to remember! So, I already have a lot of wedding ideas but since I’m going to do a lot of planning these next few months I’m need to keep it up in my blog. My sister and I recently started a new blog we hope to keep up and have a lot of content on. So, head over there to view all my wedding stuff over the next few months! www.sistersdeux.com

Here is the ring!!

Here is the picture from the Alexis Russell website:

I am pretty much the worst at posting on here. I read everyone’s blogs at work and try to remember to update (tumblr is blocked at work, yippee) but by the time I get home I forget to even update mine. I need an iphone…yes, I am the 2% that does not own one. One month and that will all change.
Halloween is coming up and it is my FAVORITE holiday. Every year I try to do something a little different but i was really struggling this year. Today while talking to boyfriend I simply mentioned I wanted to wear some sort of flowered head gear of sorts and he said…oh well what about ophelia? perfect. so, that will be my costume…I want to have it updated a bit..soo I am thinking some sorta fake flowers in my hair, white maxi dress…and I am going to dye my hair red. because I want to and i have roots growing out that have made people start asking if I have that ombra looking happening. no, i am just lazy. I tried to create a cool headthingy tonight but that failed.
I’ll post pics. I promise. but, in the meantime you can follow my instagram because i do updated that. well, only when i am in the house considering it is on my kindle and i can’t it on an android. social media is trying to kill me.

Seattle!!

For the last week I have been on a little vacation in Seattle with my sister and niece! We have done SO MUCH but I still have to upload my pictures so I’ll post those soon.

Today was more of a last day, do last things and relax day BUT I did get to meet up with an old friend of mine and it was so fun. We used to work at the Champaign Park District together and my grandfather was best buddies with her dad when we were younger which makes it pretty great that we happen to be friends too. She lives in Capital Hill and she took me to this super fun restaurant today:

Oddfellows Cafe + Bar

Also, I did two things that have been on my wish list for quite some time:

Call me weird but ever since I saw the movie How to Deal with Mandy Moore I wanted to visit this troll. The little car was covered in dust, someone painted a red streak on his face and there was a homeless man sleeping behind me but it was still pretty great.

TWIN PEAKS! I visited a town called North Bend and got a secret location map from the a guy at the restaurant. My sister and I tracked down the bridge the girl walks over in the start of the series, the opening credits town entry location, the old train car where Laura was killed and of course the lodge and water fall.

I’ll of course put this all up later but I have to wake up at 5am for a SUPER early flight tomorrow so adios and talk soon!

Tomorrow I’m flying to Seattle for a little vaca with my sister and neice!! I have a full week off work and I CAN NOT WAIT. I’m especially excited to see the troll. I used to be obsessed with the movie How to Deal. With Mandy Moore, I know, you can make fun of me. Anyway there was a scene with them on the troll. So, I’ve always wanted to go since then. I’ll keep you updated!!

Sister & Niece

Sunday was a free day at Shedd Aquarium so my sister, brother-in-law and I took Sophia! She loved it so much. Then we came back and hung out in the pool. Heaven.
