I want to do this! I will probably forget, though.

I’m thankful for

My goregous, funny, smart boyfriend, without whom I wouldn’t know what to do. Waking up next to the man I love every day. Sleeping in with him on weekends. The little moments where we link fingers. Kisses when I feel him smiling. Our cat that loves to curl up with me. Our big comfy bed that I can curl up and read a good book. My best friend who makes me feel complete. I have so much to be thankful for every day. Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks, but I give thanks every day for the little things in life. <3

Guess what, tumblr.?

I MADE DINNER!!

Well. Technically, Dakota and I made dinner. Which is even better considering what every girl wants is a boy who will cook. And guess what? Mine does! And he is good too. Now if he would just do the dishes… hmm. Nevermind.

Now, honestly, as many of you know.. I don’t cook. Ever. But, since we moved into the new house, I’ve gotten tired of fast food. Plus I’m tired of being fat. So, we moved from fast food to made-at-home-not-so-healthy food. And it was fun! I was exhausted after, because I made ham and cheese puffs, (his favorite.. one pan was gone before I cooked the other one..) spaghetti, and pie for dessert. Luckily his brother was here, or we wouldve been eating spaghetti for a long time!

It is my aspiration to be a food blogger. But I can’t cook. Go figure. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction.

When

Did I become so domesticated?

I (attempt.. see previous post about me burning my hand…gross) to cook.

I do dishes every day, because I love having my sink clean.

I clean counters, and even run my swiffer over the kitchen floor before I watch the little tv I watch now.

I put my clothes on hangers (and the nifty little shelves in my closet) and put them in the hamper when they are dirty. *Note to self. Buy more hangers. Who knew boys had so many clothes?!?!

I haven’t touched my computer since we moved (this could be because I’m on a computer about 10 hrs/day at work/school).. 

I feel more accomplished lately. I like keeping my house clean.

I am domesticated. But the strange thing is, I kinda like it.

LOL yes

LOL yes

New house. New home.

So Dakota and I are mostly moved in to our new house. There are still some things we need to organize or buy, but mostly, we’re home. :)

It’s still kinda odd, him coming home every night instead of not seeing him on work nights. But its nice. Especially since I can always tell when he’s coming home because his cat comes out and sits with me. I guess she’s been with him longer than I have, she must know him better :P. Speaking of Scooter, I am really happy with how shes adjusting. People kept telling me she was going to freak out and not leave the room or something, and she didn’t for like, the first few hours. She was confused because at the new house Dakota’s furniture is the same as it was at his other house and she recognized it, but you could tell she knew she wasn’t in the same place. And when we opened the bedroom door, you could tell that like blew her mind. And then soon enough she was hiding in our entertainment center and I could tell she has accepted it. She still prefers to spend her time in the room, but she’s not a sociable cat, moving wasn’t going to change that. But its nice that she comes and sits with me at night.

We have had our troubles, like me burning my hand the first night I tried to cook (from which I will likely have a scar) but the good outweighs the bad, like all three of us snuggled on the couch watching a movie. I know this isn’t going to be the same forever, so I try and keep myself in the moment as much as possible instead of worrying about clothes that need to be folded or dishes that need to be done. Dakota has been the a big part of the happiest years of my life (I’m sure college and my job help, but yeah, its mostly Dakota) and I hope it stays that way. <3

Big steps.

Getting ready to possibly take a big step. I’m nervous, but excited. I think me and Dakota together can accomplish anything. He always wants to take action, and I always hold off. We balance each other. He can be so straight forward and I always beat around the bush. Some days I just look at him and think of how new this feels, but in reality we have been together for three years. I never thought I could love him more but I prove myself wrong every day. I am so ready to take this step and move on with our new life. Fingers crossed!

just for funn:D

Why do people make love sound so hard? Its not supposed to be hard. Its supposed to come natural. It doesn’t have to be easy, and it shouldn’t be. It is a commitment that is made every day. But its easy enough when you look at your partner and think “I can’t imagine life without you.” Love is when you realize you love the little things. The way he kisses your forehead, always, before he leaves. The way that a good hug from him can solve anything. The way he holds your hand but it feels more like he’s holding your heart. The way that, even though its cheesy, you look at him and wish you could tell him how much you love him every single day.
