Traveling...but not me....not yet anyway

B travels for work - not all of the time, just some of the time but usually a lot at the same time. I know that sentence makes no sense!

Basically when it is great to be outside - he is traveling. He is a geologist. He likes rocks...I like rocks too...

His kind:

My kind:

Technically I like gems and minerals...but you get the drift.

Anyway - he has been traveling.... A LOT lately - as in for the first 25 days of May - I saw him for exactly 30 minutes one day (his flight came in and my flight was leaving, so we met for coffee half way between the airport)  and 12 hours another (my flight returned and he left the next day) - for 25 days I saw him for 12.5 hours.

This weekend we will be together camping. I cannot wait to be by the lake, soaking in some sun, reading, eating and drinking....but most of all I cannot wait to see him.

Whenever B is out of town I find that I don't really cook anything...Meaning - maybe a baked potato, but mostly it's either frozen veggies I zap


or I eat cereal:

Do anyone have easy 1 person meals that they like preparing? B travels often and I would like to not just eat green beans or cereal....or a microwave dinner thing...

Fill in the blank Friday

Link up  HERE

1. Something that is very near and dear to my heart is  my relationship with B. I cannot wait for our wedding day, I cannot wait to see what the future holds - but today, and every single day - I wake up knowing I'm loved, cared for and most of all that we are in this together.

2.   My little brother graduating  is a good cause to celebrate!

3. The most fun I ever had was  backpacking through Europe...I cannot wait for London this year!!

4. True friends are hard to come by - but truly they help make my world go round!

5. Something that makes me terribly happy is  planning my wedding - I KNOW I KNOW- I so didn't want to be one of those girls, but it is so fun...for now anyway.

6. A good way to spend a sunny day is  by the pool, in the ocean or with a drink in hand OR ALL of the above.

7. My favorite celebratory food is popcorn or ICE CREAM.

Heading to the ATL

My little brother graduates from Emory law school this Monday. I am so excited for him. (I know he is more excited...but you get the drift!) I cannot wait because this means that in about 2 weeks he is BACK IN TEXAS. He went to undergrad in Nebraska, worked in Texas for a year and then headed to Atlanta for law school.....I cannot wait for us to be only 200ish miles apart. I have hated that we were at least a days drive away from one another. Yes we talk often on the phone and catch up and try to see each other as much as possible...but it isn't the same. So I am excited for him, and I am happy he will be a Texan once again.

Fill in the Blank Friday

It is FILL IN THE BLANK up at Lauren's blog ... HERE

1. My bedtime routine includes - shower, wash face, brush teeth, pick Roxy up and put her on the bed and then fall into bed.  Yeah...not having kids makes bedtime a breeze.

2. I am -  ready to find a place that I want to hold my wedding at! SAturday my mom and I are going to look at a few places.

3. I can't stand TOMATOS because I think they are gross.

4. My idea of relaxation would be massage and a facial followed by sitting in a sauna.

5. If I had an extra $50 I would  probably go buy a pair of work pants...I need some new pairs.

6. The best thing about a bloggy friend is it is fun to meet new people that you would otherwise have never met.

7. A recipe I have been dying to try is  Ina's sour cream cake! MMMM.

Wedding Rant

I think weddings are crazy expensive. I think the moment you tell a vendor it is for a wedding - the amount doubles...or more....ok I am done.
