5 Things

Five (newish) things
1. It's starting to get cold outside.
2. I just finished watching the whole series of Friends. I cried.
3. I don't mind singing loudly in the car.. but only when I'm alone.
4. Wicket is loosing his baby teeth.. He currently has 2 sets of monster fangs.
5. I ate sushi, and I liked it.

Five (oldish) things
1. I've been dating Brad for almost 9 months now.. And he is quite the amazing boyfriend, and I am very lucky.
2. I've been saving up for a trip to Disneyland for a Christmas/Anniversary present for Brad! (Saving up is hard work!!)
3. Gluten still makes me sick.
4. I've had my Halloween costume planned for months.
5. As of yesterday, it's been 6 months exactly since Mowgli passed away. I cried all day.

Five words of advice
1. Don't leave the house in your pajamas. Always try to look your best, even if you just run to the grocery store. You never know who you will run into, or meet.
2. Take lots of pictures, and video tape lots of things. One day, you will be glad you did.
(trust me)
3. Choose to be happy.
4. Be open minded.
5. Sometimes, you have to be your own hero. This doesn't mean, don't rely on anyone.. just be prepared to do things on your own.
You will be okay.
I promise.

That will do.


  1. Hey, miss. Lovely post! I know how you feel about Mowgli. Jen and I feel the same way about our big lovely black cat who passed away in early 2009. And really, any pet we've lost, or family member.

    On a less teary note...

    I am SO glad it's starting to get nippy outside. Autumn is by far my favorite season. <3

  2. Sorry about your Mowgli!

    I stopped by to say congrats on your front page Etsy appearance! Hope that littly bit of fame brightened your day!

  3. My husband and I watched the entire Friends series a couple of years ago! I love them... and today my brother and his girlfriend gave us all 10 seasons for my birthday! :)

  4. Saving up to go to Disney Land is no joke it costs an arm and a leg to go to the "happiest" place on earth. Good luck with that, saving it hard stuff for sure!

  5. sorry about the sad anniversary. :(

    such a great post! i love the don't leave the house in pajamas advice. the only time i ever run into anyone from the past is when i look my worst. serious.

  6. Remember how I said I think you're an old soul? This is the kind of stuff that makes me think you are. You are so wise and a lot of your blog posts have so much..... I can't even find the word.... smartness to them. I love it. xoxoxo

  12. "Sometimes, you have to be your own hero. This doesn't mean, don't rely on anyone.. just be prepared to do things on your own.

  13. Iralee-
    I'm sooo glad that helped you! When I first saw that quote.. it helped me too! Now I save it on my desktop so I can see it everyday. This quote seriously changed my life.

  14. That last piece of advice feels so important to me right now. I'm trying to get used to living alone for the first time in my life, my boyfriend living in another country and I cry all the time, but I have to try to be strong and be my own hero. :) I loved reading this post!

  15. Aw Enmi! That must be so hard. How long will he be living in a different country? xoxo

  16. He's studying for four years in Scotland, and I'm here in Sweden as long as I can't find a good job over there or make a living off freelancing, so right now I don't know how long we'll be apart. :s At least I can see him this Christmas.

  17. Wow.. I wish you the best of luck. Long distance relationships are so hard. I hope you can find a job there!

  18. Thank you! Thinks will be ok somehow, eventually :) xoxo
