Day 13: A picture of what you wore today

No picture, but I wore gross cut-off sweats and an old wife-beater tank since I needed to work out in the yard.

Day 11: Write a letter to your loved one (ex. crush, boyfriend etc.)

Dear Aunt Tonie,

I miss you very very much. Next week is the 5 yr anniversary since you've passed. It won't be easy. I wish you could have met my husband, Gerald. You would have loved him.

Love,
K

Day 10: Write the differences between you and your best friend

The difference would be that I exist, and my best friend doesn't. I know I know, sounds super emo. But let's be realistic here. I cannot honestly say that I have a best friend. I love my husband and he's "supposed" to be my best friend, but I'm not including him simply because I feel every person should have friends outside of their marriage or relationship. I unfortunately don't. I used to, but we grew apart and went in different directions and now I'm just sort of here.

Day 8: Describe your perfect date

My perfect date would be something fun such as Six Flags or paintball, and then a nice romantic dinner at my favorite restaurant. I'm easy to please.

Day 5: Someone you would switch lives with for a day and why

I would switch lives with someone who claims to have it all figured out.

Simply to see if they really do have it figured out or if they're just better at acting than I.

Day 4: What was the last movie you watched, write about it

Because I couldn't remember what movie it was, I had to look on GetGlue to find out what the last movie I checked in to was.

Shutter Island on Netflix

I enjoyed it. It was not a scary movie as I originally thought it was going to be, but I suppose it could be categorized as psychological thriller. I can't really say much about it without giving away too much of the plot for anyone who hasn't seen it.
It's not a happy movie, but it played out very well. I can't say that I'm a Leo fan, but his acting was phenomenal in this flick.

The end plays out just like I thought it would, but that's not a mark against the story. The "twist" has been done before in multiple other thrillers that I just sort of expected it. Very well made movie, though. I would recommend it.

Day 2: Post your favorite song and write why you like it

Oh boy. This is a difficult one. I have so many favorite songs, where do I start?

I was born in the wrong decade. I love 70 and 80's music and really can't stand much of anything past the 90s. I am a rock gal. I love my hair bands, and tight pants, and awesome guitar riffs.

And I like this song because it makes me happy.

Day 1: Write about your best friend

This is a little difficult as I don't hold anyone currently in the "best friend" category. My husband automatically is, but outside of us .. there's not much else to fill that space. So, because of that I'll write about my hubby.

I love calling him that. It's a change change from "fella."
We met 4 years ago on the internet. Not through a dating site, but a common forum that we both frequently daily. I had the biggest crush on him, I couldn't even stand it. I'd see him online and I'd stalk his posts. Eventually we exchanged phone numbers and sent thousands of texts back and forth each month. He lived just over 4 hours away and one weekend I decided that I was going to drive up to Oklahoma and see if this crush is going to pan out. Long story short, it did and we've been inseparable ever since.

Growing up I never really had that one friend that finished my sentences or got my lame jokes. I thought I did, but looking back I wasn't being true to myself. I was being who I thought these people wanted me to be. I quickly discovered how awesome and awkward I really was and I just went with it. Today, people say that I'm harsh and sometimes mean. But that's just the sarcasm talking. I am one of those that needs to be around other sarcastic people. People that understand that sarcasm in and of itself is it's very own language. And a language I am more than fluent in.

[side note - As I am writing this I can hear one of our dogs snoring outside]

After I moved out of TN, it seems that no one really wanted to try to keep a relationship going. So I soon gave up. Who needs lame friends from high school anyway. Then I discovered just how wonderful the internet could be outside of AOL. I found internet forums that catered to things I was interested in and as such I found Gerald.
He gets my jokes. He watches the same TV shows. He allows me to be hormonal and myself. And he loves me for it.

One day I'd like that have that "best friend"outside of our marriage, but it's safe to say I'm ok with not having that right now.
