Top 2 Tuesday ...on a Monday!

For some reason, come Monday afternoon, I check the blogs and see that Taylor has posted the Top 2 Tuesday and therefore...I do it. 

So without further adieu...

Top 2 Cleaning or Organization Tips/Tricks

1. When I am organizing I put everything in bags. For example if I am cleaning up the kitchen and dining room - I have a bag for "bedroom" "bathroom" "garage" and "living room" so at first go through anything IN the kitchen or dining room that should go into any of those rooms I put those items in those bags. At the end of finishing that room, I take those bags to their respective places to then put those items away.

2. Whenever I check the mail I open it all IMMEDIATELY and throw away/ recycle  anything I don't need. That way it never comes in and makes a mess on the kitchen counter!

B and I are headed to Florida for Thanksgiving. We are spending it with his parents on his parents boat. I think it will be great fun. I haven't been able to get to know his parents so well since they don't live in our city so I am glad that I will get the opportunity.

Things I am thankful for:

1. My family. Without my family, I would be lost. They are so supportive and loving. Sure they drive me crazy but where would I be without them?!

2. My brother. Sure he goes with family, but my little brother and I are close and I am so lucky to have him as a brother and a friend. I'm truly blessed and my world was a better place the moment he was born.

3. My friends. It goes without saying that they are the "family I got to pick"

4. B. He's patient, kind and most of all - such a loving and supportive man. I know I drive him crazy but truly I am so thankful he taught me what a loving and happy relationship is.

5. My health. It isn't always great but I don't take it for granted!

6. Freedom. Freedom isn't free and I am so thankful for those who allowed me to be free.

7. Food, Shelter and stability. There are people without these things and I am thankful to have them. I only hope that everyone can.

Top 2 Tuesday....on a Monday

It's that time again...TOP 2 TUESDAY!!!
I know I have been gone A LOT and haven't participated as much as I would like goes...

Top 2 Things on your Christmas List (or 3!)

1. I'd love an I-pad, Kindle or the like. I love to read and I think it would be great to have something to take me with all of the time that could have LOTS of books on it and take up not so much space!

2. I'd love a new watch.

3. I'd love a GYM membership. I bought a groupon to a new gym in town to try out a few classes and hope to do that in January. After that I would love to find a place that I enjoy going to and enjoy working out at.

Cooking Class

B and I took a cooking class last night. It was amazing. So much fun! We made Morroccan food. DELISH!!!

I wasn't so sure about this cooking class thing, but it ended up being VERY hands on and we met a lot of people and laughed the entire night.

Oh and we left SO STUFFED. So delish!

Time is flying by!

Time is really flying by these days. I truly can't believe it is almost time for me to head to Florida! B and I are going to FL with his parents to their boat. I think it will be a nice fun getaway. Since I started the new job I don't really have vacation days this year so I am making every day that we have off for holidays count! :)

Currently I am trying to find a new apartment. This is challenging. Hopefully I will be all moved in by Christmas!

Fill in the blank Friday

1. My last haircut was.... about 3 weeks ago - I cut off almost 6 inches!! YIKES!

2. My most daring hair moment was.... when I was little. I cut off my ponytail. Yes I wanted short hair. My mom said no, so I cut it myself. My mom cried.

3. A hairstyle I'd never be brave enough to try is....a short pixie cut.

4. I've always dreamt of being a .... I used to want to be blonde...but I think I'd look weird.

5. My go to hair-do is ..... long, straightened with a curl on the end.

6. My biggest hair disaster was....I went to someone that had never cut curly hair, so when it was wet it was right at my shoulders, dry- right at my chin and it looke like a triangle.

7. A hairstyle I'm dying to try is...I want to grow it takes forever.

8. My best hair day was .... I have no idea. I have a love hate relationship with my hair.

9. The worst hairstyle I ever had was.... when I chopped it all off when I was 5.

10. My hair is....super thick, curly, dark with natural highlights everywhere, it drives me crazy but in the end though - I love it.
