Fluffy Meowington’s Cat Toy

Have you ever had a character in book become so beloved that at some point you actually felt like they were apart of your life? Using the word “book” rather than “tv show” made me sound very cultured and smart, right? Actually there have been two tv shows that I’ve watched through the years that have been so much apart of my life. When it’s a book or character from a book it’s acceptable and you’re cultured. Why can’t I just be honest and say it’s been the same with certain shows too? It’s all media after all.

Friends and One Tree Hill. Yessss! Before those who are more conservative than others start in on me (especially about Friends)… I admit and understand there are much debaucherous acts and terrible examples of integrity on these shows – especially as it relates to sex. It’s tv, it’s media, it’s put out there by the world… I get it. I do have standards and there are shows that I will not watch, but I do watch Friends. On these shows there are also some really great examples of friendship, family, supportive relationships, hard choices, positive transformation, standing up for yourself or others. I’m going to talk about why these shows have been so meaningful for me WITHOUT giving away too much or any big spoilers just in case you haven’t watched yet. Both are streaming on Netflix so you really have no excuses!

The characters of Friends have kept me laughing since I started watching during season 7 (somewhere around 2001?). Of course I backtracked and watched all the seasons on DVD. I watched only the final four seasons live on television. I remember watching the finale and feeling like I was loosing six of my actual friends. I think one reason we tend to cling towards a show via pinterest or start to feel attached is because it can be the most consistent thing in our lives. Sounds a little crazy but let me explain. I started watching friends when I was a teenager. Watched it all through jr high and high school… then in college… and into my adult years. I can’t think of anything or anyone else who was consistently there making me laugh. Even after the series ended in 2004 I would always have Friends on in the background, or my roommate and I would fall asleep to it. It was a comfort having something on that I knew so well. For the record, the only thing I felt pressured to do after watching Friends is to have great friends myself… and maybe in later seasons to go update my wardrobe! I’m not saying that’s what everyone felt or should have experienced. Maybe for you the show isn’t something you can or should be watching. Things I appreciated about the show (to name just a few)… Monica and Chandler’s relationship, Joey and Phoebe’s friendship, and Gunther pouring coffee over heartfelt conversations. When I needed to genuinely laugh and be happy – I would watch this show with a loved one! We all need a little laugh every day. I also really related to Monica’s struggle with her family. When I was in high school I had such a great group of friends that I felt so close with! I just wished we lived across the hall from each other or in the next building like the characters on Friends did. That’s not a bad wish. I think I secretly thought we’d all end up buying houses on the same street some day. Maybe I still hold onto that dream a little bit 🙂

When I watched One Tree Hill I felt like I had learned a new value lesson after each episode. The school of OTH! I used even wonder if someone on the show grew up in church or had a Christian influence. Each character grew and changed just like I had over over the years. We witnessed them graduate high school, get married, have kids, find their call in life… just like I did. OTH is like soul food for me. I feel like a part of me is in the show after watching so much transformation take place. When I needed a laugh I would watch Friends, but when I needed to feel understood or that I wasn’t alone in the struggle I would watch One Tree Hill. If there’s hope for these characters then there is certainly hope for me. The show also used art and music to speak volumes of truth. They also tackled the issue of grief after loosing a loved one. They did it perfectly and was so relatable and touching for me to watch after loosing my own loved one. So much I appreciated about this show that is really different than anything out there.

Disclaimer: Of course neither show was my main or even second or third source of comfort, happiness or support. Whenever I truly felt like no one on earth understands – I go to my heavenly Father. Whenever I am feeling so depression or down – I look to the heavens from where my help comes from. I also have an incredible husband, loving friends and family. Don’t read this the wrong way. I love my real friends more than tv shows! There is just something about the consistency and lessons learned from these shows that really have made a small impact on my life. Plus these were shows that I really shared WITH my loved ones! All of my friends know each FRIENDS episode by heart and we laugh together, send each other inside jokes from the show, and it’s great! So many of my friends and teenagers I work with are inspired by the characters of OTH and talking about it affirms life! God can use anything to speak to you or even use to connect with another human who needs a little encouragement. Sometimes talking about these shows are my way to break the ice with someone who needs a friend (no pun intended) or a mentor. Keith Scott status mentor!

I’m going to leave you with some of my favorite quotes from each show. I’ve already quoted OTH on both of my blogs so I’ll try and choose some new ones for you!

“My strength is from Jesus Christ. I am going to miss my baby boy for the rest of this life but I know we are going to see him again and our faith will see us through.” -One Tree Hill, said by Denise (Q’s Mom)

“Welcome to the real world. It sucks. You’re gonna love it!” -Friends, said by Monica episode 1

“You know that romantic notion that all the garbage and the pain is really healing and beautiful and sort of poetic? It’s not. It’s just garbage and it’s pain. You know what’s better? Love. The day that you start thinking that love is overrated is the day that you’re wrong. The only thing wrong with love and faith and belief is not having it.” -One Tree Hill, said by Haley

“It’s a moo point. It’s like a cow’s opinion; it doesn’t matter. It’s moo.” -Friends, said by Joey

“Tree Hill is just a place somewhere in the world. Maybe it’s a lot like your world, maybe it’s nothing like it. But if you look closer, you might see someone like you, or someone like you. Someone trying to find their way. Someone trying to find their place. Someone trying to find their self. Sometimes it seems like you are the only one in the world who’s struggling, who’s frustrated, unsatisfied, barely getting by. But that feeling’s a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find you and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes – someone to help us hear the music in their world, to remind us that it won’t always be this way. That someone is out there. And that someone will find you” -One Tree Hill, said by Lucas

“She’s your lobster. C’mon you guys. It’s a known fact that lobsters fall in love and mate for life. You can actually see old lobster couples walking around their tank, you know, holding claws. See? He’s her lobster!” -Friends, said by Phoebe about Ross and Rachel

“Every once in a while, people step up they rise above themselves sometimes they surprise you and sometimes they fall short. Life is funny sometimes. It can push pretty hard but if you look close enough, you can find hope in the words of children, in the bars of the song and in the eyes of someone you love. And if you’re lucky, if you’re the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back.” -One Tree Hill, said by Nathan

“I thought that it mattered what I said or where I said it. Then I realized the only thing that matters is that you make me happier than I ever thought I could be. And if you’ll let me, I will spend the rest of my life trying to make you feel the same way. Monica, will you marry me?” -Friends, said by Chandler

“The rest of your life is a long time and whether you know it or not it’s being shaped right now. You can choose to blame your circumstances on fate or bad luck or bad choices or you can fight back. Things aren’t always going to be fair in the real world, that’s just the way it is but for the most part you get what you give. Let me ask you all a question. What’s worse: not getting everything you wished for or getting it but finding out it’s not enough? The rest of your life is being shaped right now with the dreams you chase, the choices you make and the person you decide to be. The rest of your life is a long time and the rest of your life starts right now.” -One Tree Hill, said by Haley

“I’m not great at advice, can I interest you in a sacastic comment?” -Friends, said by Chandler

“Learn to let go of the past. And recognize that every day won’t be sunny, and when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember it’s only in the black of night you see the stars. And those stars will lead you back home. So don’t be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, cause most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you’ll get everything you wish for. Maybe you’ll get more than you ever could have imagined.” -One Tree Hill, said by Coach Whitey Durham

A Time Away

Maine is wonderful place! I was blessed to spend Thanksgiving week there. My mother was actually born in Maine and continued to live in Northern New England until she was a teenager and moved to Massachusetts. Like myself, she’s a true New Englander. Maine holds a lot of special memories for me of visiting my maternal grandparents in Hope (right outside of Camden) and other trips and retreats with my friends and my youth group when I was a teenager.

My mom sitting next to the Lake she grew up going to with her family every summer. This was a NNED AG campground on Long Lake in Maine. A full circle experience coming back with her own children I’m sure!

A gorgeous Maine night sky!

Me and my sister Kendra enjoying scenic Long Lake, ie- Moose Pond in Bridgton!

My sister Kendra and her soon-to-be husband Sterling enjoying God’s beautiful creation of nature! What else is Maine better for?

Clark and I with my parents on Long Lake! Goofy smiles! I love the vacation version of us! Haha 😉

This time around my family and I were able to stay in the lake house of a very gracious friend. There aren’t words to express how blessed we were to stay in this beautiful lake house. We are so grateful for this friend and all the wonderful people that God has put in our lives to take care of us. We were in Bridgton (near Naples) and enjoyed the lake, the town, and of course the house 😉 Especially that fireplace!

Clark and I enjoying that warm fire and enjoying each other!

Kendra and Sterling acting their usual – “a fool”! Drinking eggnog from shot glasses to see if they liked it! No alcohol necessary for these two to keep things interesting.

Mom making herself at home in the kitchen… are you sensing the theme of this lake house?

Dad enjoying the awaited local Book Store stop! “Bridgton Books” located on the main road downtown.

Coming from an overly busy ministry family we were very grateful to get away for almost an entire week to truly ‘retreat’. There was not even internet at the house we were staying at! At first I was looking forward to an internet free vacation… then day four hit and my inner Pinteresting monster roared it’s beastly head! I did end up wishing there was internet for fun purposes… like blogging! I know if my family had internet it wouldn’t be so much of a vacation though. When I said I come from an “overly busy” ministry family… that was code for “workaholics”. I was glad to spend a lot of time just relaxing around the house, coloring with my sister, watching the guys read by the fire, and enjoying my mom’s cooking. I am extremely thankful for the family God has given me [annoying as they can be at times], it’s always a poignant reminder that I am among few attached to a great family who all still love each other [and the Lord].

Us girls! The two dearest women in my life with whom I’m very close and very grateful for.

My parents over 30 years strong and still in love! And from whom I inherited the “tall” gene. Thanks guys!

We also watched the HBO mini-series John Adams…. soooooo incredibly phenomenal! I highly recommend this mini-series to all adults (and teenagers when watched on Clear Play) even if you don’t necessarily love history.  My sister had never seen it before and loved it. We all especially appreciate the relationship between John and Abigail Adams… a marriage built on the foundation of faith in God and country. Can you tell our family enjoys a little American History?! Especially my dad. He’s a true Presidential history buff and has literally every President memorized. We also got to go to the movies as a family and watched the new fillm “Lincoln“. What an incredible film and critics agree! Although, in my humble opinion, for this film you definitely have to have some understanding or love for history to enjoy. Author and historian John Hallwas said “for anyone with the slightest interest in American history, or mature enough to sense human complexity, Lincoln is a riveting movie, filled with superb performances and firmly focused on the socio-political struggle that accompanied our terrible Civil War. It’s well worth driving out of town to see. Indeed, all Americans need to see it”. The movie served to remind me of how lucky I am to be able to have the right and choice to marry a black man. A black man who has all the same rights as a white man in America. I’m not naive to overlook the issues still surrounding the races. Not to say racism and racial prejudices and profiling doesn’t exist still… but I was at least glad for a reminder that humanity is sometimes good and fights for what’s right! Men and women fought for the Emancipation and risked their very lives to make sure it happened in America.

I realize now that part of my love for History comes from my dad. As a kid whenever we went on road trips my dad would talk about history and pull out Presidential flashcards! At one point I had the first dozen or so Presidents & First Ladies memorized. I’ve probably visited more Presidential landmarks and homesteads than most. On our honeymoon, Clark and I even went to the “second” White House in the Florida Keys that was used as the second home of President Truman during his Presidency. How interesting! Now almost no one (especially our newer couple of generations) respects the rich history our country has or the brilliant men and women that sacrificed everything just so we can now experience ‘life as we know it’ in America 2012! John Adams [our second President] said “I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography […] commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture…”

I could get on my soap box about this issue four hours (or pages in this case), but I’ll try to spare you readers! It’s just hard for me to understand why eligible American people choose not to vote. People today don’t even consider how many selfless souls were courageously sacrificed so that in 2012 you can simply walk up to your local voting center and check off a name on a ballet. How can you feel right about yourself when even today soliders [that I know, love, and miss dearly] are off in foreign lands fighting and protecting our shores night and day for YOUR life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. These soliders are sacrificing their lives and neglecting their own families so you can take care of yours without worry. Soliders are getting killed while you are taking advantage of your freedom as you sit on your high horse choosing not to vote. Ahem… I did say I WASN’T going to get on a soap though… so I digress [or I’ll try]…

All in all our much needed vacation was restful and proved to provide quality family time. It was great to have all of us in one time zone – let alone the dinner table together! The Booths were even able to join uf for Thanksgiving day… they are like blood to us! I was overall very thankful on my Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving from The Clervois’! Even though our vacation was the whole family, just the two of us really enjoyed each other and loved spending extra time together in such a relaxing setting!

A look around our family’s Thanksgiving table! Isn’t Clark’s smile just infectious? What a handsome man… I’m lucky!

Spy time with my nephew! Isn’t he just adorable?

My Dad decides to wrestle both of the boys… using his feet! Gross!

A fan favorite! My mom’s famous stuffed mushrooms… always a crowd pleaser! I can’t even describe their delicious-ness!

Working hard but enjoying the cooking and baking together! So thankful my Auntie Jan got me a kitchenaid when I got married! Kendra made this extraordinary Sweet Potato Soufflé! So good!

Becky joins us for some more secretive spy missions on the back porch while we wait for turkey! Salute!

The great outdoors! Appreciate!

I’m also VERY thankful to be back home in our apartment blogging while watching Friends as my husband fall asleep next to me! Home was calling me back! I missed my own bed and our normal nighttime routine. Plus, I left with a terrible head cold so it’s nice to be back in my own element to recover. Praying for a quick turn around!

Coming up for Learning To Breathe: The next couple blog posts I promise to cover how our Fall Retreat went! I also have some other practical blogs in the making on topics such as “Ten Products I Couldn’t Live Without”, home maker wife stuff sharing “Three Great Buys”, how we live our “Low Carb Lifestyle”, and maybe a few fashion blogs! Can’t wait to publish all the drafts I have! I’m also going to be guest blogging on a friend’s blog in early December, so I’ll post about that asap too!

Thanks for reading and I hope you’re enjoying!

I blog post I wrote one year ago and never published until today…

From my drafts, written December 9th, 2011

Time really flies by. Like the phrase used in the Bible “in the blink of an eye” it will happen in a moment. I’ve never felt old up until recently. I’m so young in my twenty three years, but somehow I feel like I’ve already had more experiences than most people have a in lifetime. Growing up… sometimes it feels as though it wasn’t a choice I made, it just happened! I’m not quite sure when I exactly turned the corner and became an adult, but every time I’m reminded of this fact it’s so surprising! You would think being married would serve as a reminder that I’m not a teenager anymore, but that’s not it. This past week Amy Moller and I were holding two Booth babies in our arms in the kitchen of the house that Jamie and Becky bought. TWO boys. It felt like a dream for a moment. Remember five [now six] years ago when Felipe was alive and we were all at Richardson’s after Sunday night service? Then we’d go back to the Booth apartment that smelled like weed and watch Friends and we would just love being together. Remember when your friends were everything? We had a such a close group of friends that we were truly one another’s family. I really miss that support and stability. I remember Kendra had long light brown hair and braces. I remember Jen’s crazy laugh. So many things have changed since then. All of a sudden it becomes a little more clear to me when I had to grow up.

“The thing is there is never a time when you will be more honest, and your convictions will be stronger, and your motives will be more pure than they are right now. Which means you should chase whatever excites you. Be confident, and take risks, and paint over my words so you can start writing your own. My story may have inspired you, but I’m certain your story will inspire the next girl to live in our room. I want you to know you don’t need somebody to write about you in order for your life to mean something. You can write about yourself… make your own destiny. Then years from now the next girl will keep what you write on that door long enough to remind you how inspired your life is. And you can tell that girl to paint over the door because you realize the words you wrote, the friends you had, the urgency you felt will always be there under the paint. The love you professed will always be there, the spark of something undeniable, a seed of hope, the truth for better or for worse burning fiercely just below the surface.” -Peyton Sawyer, One Tree Hill

Thankful For…

Well, sometimes when I can’t sleep I just put on some One Tree Hill, drink another cup of tea, and check out Instagram or Pinterest (or both)! Tonight I’m choosing to participate in a far greater activity; I’m listing what I’m thankful for (…while watching One Tree Hill and drinking tea)!

My good friend Alina inspired me to do this! She writes every night in her journal what she is thankful for and always makes her handwritten entry good so charming with little drawings for each thing she’s thankful for. I am inspired because she is so artistic and [of course more importantly] she’s proven to show gratitude towards God and praise Him for what He’s done… even in providing the little things! So, in keeping with that spirit (plus Thanksgiving is not too far away), I will list all I’m thankful for or appreciate. I’ll try to just list what it is and not a story of “why” I’m thankful. Besides, God already knows!

1. Getting to know my husband more and each day learning something knew (even after four years of being together and 6 years of friendship). 💜💋💍

2. God’s reminders that He loves me, and the timeliness of these reminders. He knows! ❤💭🙏

3. Netflix and the fact Netflix has every season of One Tree Hill! Also has other shows I enjoy to watch such as: Felicity, Dawson’s Creek, Friday Night Lights, Lie to Me, and more recently Prison Break! 📺🎧🌚📲

4. Cheese. All cheese [except orange kinds that are supposed to be white]. ☺😛😋

5. Water. And the fact when I’m thirsty (or a bit dehydrated like today) I can pick up a bottle of water anywhere and it’s safe clean water. Not every country in the world has that and people die every day because they don’t. Some of us Americans even spend a lot of time complaining about tap water. Today in thankful for it. 🍶🌊🌏🇺🇸

6. My monkey slippers. Oh yeah. 🙈🙉🙊

7. Our car that we recently bought after I totaled our previous car. She’s red and we might call her Anabelle… Thoughts? 🚗😱😅

8. Crafts and colorful sharpies and cards! 🌷🌼✒

9. Friends. Good friends with whom you can be yourself and not have to worry. Going away with friends just tops it off! 👜💕💞🚌

10. My noisemaker app on [my] iPhone, iPad, and even MacBook. Praise Him! 🎧🎼🎵🎶

Welp, there are 10 things or reasons why I’m thankful to God (and glory goes to Him). I do thank Him for being my provider and my everything that I need. This has been great. The end. Goodnight!

Greatly Under-appreciated Television Shows!

So, if you’re a regular “Learning to Breathe” reader you may remember I did a blog post on Greatly Underapprecaited Films … and now I need to share with you all the best of the best TV shows that are extreeeeeemely underestimated!

Now, maybe unlike most television viewers I often watch tv like I read a classic novel. I’m looking for greatness! Great plot, character development, moral underlays, overall message, life lessons, something I can gain perspective from… are all important to me when watching a show. Maybe it’s because of the increasingly small amont of time I have to dedicate to watching a TV show; I want to make the most of my life and not waste it on some crummy tv show. Most of my TV watching is done on Netflix, Hulu, and Comcast OnDemand every once in a while (or at least until my husband cancels my cable to save money!). I think Netflix streaming is well worth the $8 a month Clark and I pay! So… here they are…

1. Parenthood (NBC). What. a. freaking. great. show. This is probably going to be the only show on my list that is still airing on tv now! Parenthood represents everything I’m looking for in a TV show… it’s gripping! It’s about family… the real and vulnerable ones. Each character goes through something where you see them stretch and grow and most of the time learn something with them. I find myself feeling incredibly connected to this family because my family resembles the “Braverman family” so often. In an interview Sam Jaeger (who plays probably my favorite character – Joel) said that they are quietly making their best season yet; and I couldn’t agree more about season four. Especially now that I’m experiencing family in our “grown up” stages (everyone in my immediate family are adults and married or engaged) it’s sometimes difficult learning what it means to be family in this next chapter of life. The Braverman’s help me. Of course the title of the show seems to imply that only parents could appreciate or relate… 100% false. I am neither a parent or soon-to-be parent and this show encompasses so many faucets of a real life family – their problems and all – that I cannot resist staying up all night to watch what will happen next to the Braverman’s and learning what they learn. I love shows that show families and people that come full circle (Monica in Friends, Sayid in Lost, Nathan and Brooke in One Tree Hill) so this family faces so many challenges and rises to each of them TOGETHER. This show surpassed my expectations. Netflix has every previous season (seasons 1 through 3) on streaming, and you can catch up on this season’s episodes on Hulu (or elsewhere on the internet… wink wink). I will warn you that season one began a little show.

2. One Tree Hill (the WB now CW). I know… you’ve already passed judgement and have a negative soap operatic pre-conceived notion about this show! Well, it’s your absolute loss because this is the most poetic, morally challenging, and intensely gripping show I’ve ever watched. The creator and executive producer (and sometimes director) Mark Schwan is a literary genius. I’m telling you… if One Tree Hill was a novel it’s be an instant classic and NY Times best seller. I also appreciate how this show stuck it the man!!! When the show starts our characters are in their junior year of high school… and it’s clear that the program shows a little skin and does the whole “I’m a teenage drama CW tv show” bit. However, by the third episode it’s clear that there’s more to the show. By the end of our time at Tree Hill you see our characters grow up, start families, learn important life lessons, appreciate each other and love so fiercely… I only dream of having such friends in my own life! It’s hard for me to believe that Haley, Brooke, and some of the other characters don’t love Jesus… haha! Watching this show is like going to therapy. I’ve probably saved a lot of money watching this show rather than talking to a shrink. I’ve also been incredibly inspired by One Tree Hill. I’m not even sure anything has ever inspired me as much… work hard to follow your dreams, make the right choices, love your family and friends, grow healthy relationships, have fun in life! Lucas said “Life is short, Peyton” and Peyton replied “too short to live it as a bad person”. This show also makes me feel incredibly normal as I transition from teenage Kim to adult Kim to starting a family Kim. The narrations in OTH presents to me a very relatable story that becomes a theology on life. Now… don’t get me wrong… it’s very dramatic… and crazy!! Nannie Carrie!!! You can find the entire series on Netflix streaming.

3. Freaks and Geeks (NBC). Who ever is responsible for canceling this show after the first season has a special place in hades. The tagline for the show was something like “everything you remember in high school… that you chose to forget” and how true that rang! Even though this show aired in 1999 and was set in 1980 this show is extremely relevant to modern public high school experience. Freaks and Geeks exposes a lot things that people probably didn’t want exposed in 1980, 1999, or even now… the truth behind the high school growing up experience. It exposes a lot of hypocrisy in the education system and how that generation of adults parented their children. I would highly recommend this show to anyone especially wanting an insight into the teenage mind. The creators of the show talk about how part of the reason why they were cancelled is because they would not be persuaded creatively to change anything about their show. Annnnnd I haven’t even mentioned the stellar [now] all-star cast of freaking James Franco, Seth Rogan, Jason Segal, Busy Phillips, Linda Cardellini (ER), and John Francis Daley (Bones). Plus there are special guest appearance by the likes of Ben Stiller, Shia LaBeouf, Rashida Jones, Jason Schwartzman, and Leslie Mann. Like….. jiga-whhhhhaattttttt??? Why canceled??? IDIOTS!!! The entire series can be found on Netflix streaming.

Those are my top 3 right now! I’m sure there will be a part 2 to this blog…

ps- my signature “now, thats a spicy meatball” is Mouth’s catch phrase from One Tree Hill. It’s meaningful… you’ll see!

the last thing i…

one:

Last TV show I watched…

one of the most underrated show on tv, in my opinion! Even though I don’t have any kids myself, I still find this family “the Braverman’s” extremely relatable. Some of my favorite actors on tv are also in this and I think some beautiful themes are present! You gotta check it out, seasons one and two are on Netflix if you have it.

two:

Last book I read…

Tracie Peterson is by far my favorite author of all time. I don’t know how it took me so long to read her Alaskan Quest series… oh my gosh it’s amazing. I highly HIGHLY recommend. After reading this trilogy I’m having a hard time reading anything else because nothing compares! I think about the characters during my day like they are friends that I miss! It’s so amazing… first book is “Summer of Midnight Sun”, book two is “Under the Northern Lights”, and book three is “Whispers of Winter”. I did not think I could enjoy a book set in Alaska, but I was so pleasantly surprised.

three:

Last iPhone app I downloaded…

Pinterst of course! Need I say more? Speaking of…

four:

Last pin I pinned on pinterest…

this amazing picture of this amazing living room pit! I pinned it into my “Dream House Type Stuff” pinboard =)

five:

Last thing I tweeted…

“It’s just as fun being a surrogate aunt as being a real one!! Here is my nephew baby & me :-)”

six:

Last nail polish I used…

I love the nail polish from Forever21 because they’re so cheap =)

seven:

Last meal I ate…

Delicious Steak tips, eggs, and homefries from…

Jimmy K’s restaurant in Georgetown, Mass…. my go to spot whenever I pick someone up from Zion for a bite to eat. They serve breakfast all day and the waitresses are all at least 90 years old! There are huge booth’s and you get to pick where you sit normally!

eight:

Last theme park I went to…

My wonderful sister Kendra and I took a “Sistahs Trip” in 2010 before I got married! We went to Florida and visited friends and went to Disney World curtsey of Holly Ciampa! I wish we could take another trip to Florida and SOON! It was one of my favorite memories ever with Ken… we seriously had the best time.
