My "Not Mine Valentine"


Mmmm...can't you just smell the love in the air? Valentine's Day is literally right around the corner, and honestly I'm the least bit excited. Well maybe a little, my best friend and I are getting dinner together. A girls thing! Now, I'm not one of those "All Couples Go to Hell" type of people, who hates seeing other women get flowers, and candies, and cookies or whatever. It's just in all my brief 24 years of living...I've never had a true valentine. Yes. Even when I had a boyfriend.

Let me explain.

I've only had one boyfriend or "Valentine" my entire life. We dated for almost two years, and over the course of those two years Valentine's Day still didn't work out for me. First year we were both at separate colleges, and on VDay, I just knew I was going to get showered with love and affection...not to mention my mailbox would be full of  surprises. But nope. 8:00pm rolled around that night, and I was still waiting for a phone call, a package, or even Ashton Kutcher to pop out and tell me that I was getting punked. All I got was a text. Then to make matters worse, I found out that he was passing out flowers and teddy bears to all of the other girls on his campus. All of the other single, lonely, depressed, single girls that were sad on Valentines day. Sweet right?

Second Valentines Day, was a little more complicated. My "Not Mine Valentine" was a party promoter for his school, and they were throwing this uber nice social event for all the lovers and the not so loved ones on campus. He told me that instead of passing off his project to another team member, or simply inviting me to come to the event with him, that we could Skype for Valentines Day and watch movies over Netflix. I was only about a $38.00 train ride to his school, but he insisted that he would be working, and that he would race home to Skype me. Welp. 11:30 rolled around, and you guessed it. There was still no package, I was still waiting by the television and computer screen, and he never showed. I called, and called to catch up with him, but it didn't work out. 2:30am eased on by, and at that point...I figured I had just been played. Again. 

Moral of this story ladies. I'm just like any other girl. I like flowers, and candies, and all that sappy crap. But I've just had really bad luck with Valentine's Day.  But! I will still be posting for my girls that are in love with someone else, and the girls that are...well in love with themselves. Either way...rock on!

Hugs, Kisses, & Shots

Life Via the Camera Roll Pt. 1

Hey girl, hey! Since my last post I've been snowed in 3 times ladies. Yes, 3! I know there should have been at least one post in between the last time we've talked, but due to cabin fever, if it isn't snowing I'm running out the door catch at least a ray of sunlight, or grab some drinks with the ladies. It seems like with this weather if it isn't snowing, it's below 20 degrees, if its not below 20 degrees, its a blizzard. So I know all my girls throughout the Midwest and on the East coast are feeling me right now! Mother nature permitting, we must get outside the house every chance we get! Here are some shots via the camera roll lately.....

 Daddy sent pink flowers to surprise me! I got so many flowers for my birthday, and everyone knows that i absolutely love pink flowers. Thanks everyone!

House Salad from Freshii. One of my fav places to go on my lunch break here in the city! All of their menu items are either vegan, gluten free, or paleo friendly!

 Superbowl Party at this new place in the South Loop, Noveau Tavern (it was super dark, sorry for the blur)
 Drinks w/ my ladies : )

A friend of mines has been recommending this really good sushi place here in the city. The name of the place was Sushi Sai....customer service sucked but the sushi was unbelievable!

LUSH review coming soon!!!

Outback Steakhouse (Australian Vibes only here : ) )

We also celebrated my mom's 55th birthday this past weekend! I'm so blessed to have my mom around, and she's so much fun to be around. Family is such a big deal to me, and a lot of our family members came to her birthday party to show her a little love : )

Oan, thank you for bearing with my god awful lighting and quality of my photos. Needless to say I've just purchased a new camera, and I'm excited to post better pictures of my daily adventures and recipes. Can't wait!

So according to my calendar, Valentines Day is coming up??

Be Fierce. Be Queen. Be You.
