28 favorite moments

May 6, 2016

It's my birthday (on Sunday)!

Well, my birthday month, my birthday week starts next week, next Sunday to be exact! I share it with Mother's Day this year, along with Liam. Yes, what a coincidence that we share the same birthday, we're birthday twins and I'm older. They call me cougarrr. Just kidding, two years isn't that much! I am taking a note from Elise Blaha and her birthday moments and things. She has done it for a few years now and I have read along with her and loved it, so here I am following in those footsteps to remember those moments at age 28 that I loved so much.

Here they are, the 28 best moments...

Stepping foot onto Thailand to visit my parents at 11o'clock at night and then going to ride elephants at 7am the next morning.

Taking AC on his first trip to Thailand and seeing how much he loved it and enjoyed the food. It was a moment I am sure both of us will never forget, even with the things that have happened since then. It was an amazing vacation.

Meeting baby Sofia for the first time. She is just as cute in pictures as she is in person. I was so happy to see my best friend and her adorable little baby girl.

Meeting baby Annabelle for the first time when Bree was in NJ for treatment. It was amazing to see both of them, it was under terrible circumstances but still great to see them both.

Seeing Taylor Swift for a second time and belting out her songs with 3 high school friends. She is amazing in concert and I love her, I can not wait to see her again when she comes out with a new album in two years ha!

Thanksgiving. My brother came home with Amanda, my cousins came to visit, I met my second cousin Stella (totes adorbs). It was so nice to have everyone together again and have that big dinner with all of my family.

Moving into my new apartment. My very own big girl apartment away from home and being all adult.

Starting my new job, I can not believe it has almost been one full year at my job. Time really does fly. It has had it's ups and downs but for the most part I have enjoyed learning as much as I have at the plant

Laying by my pool all summer.

Buying fresh flowers from the Farmers Market.

Tubing down the Delaware with friends in the middle of the summer.

Every single Rutgers game I went to is a moment I loved. That probably consists of at least eight moments bundled into one fantastic memory.

My parents visiting me at my new town, new apartment, even though my dad sat on the couch the entire weekend it was worth it for them to know where I live. It snowed while they were here, which I am sure they were not thrilled about since they had just gotten home from Thailand.

Liam and I's first kiss.

Watching my friend Dave get married and being with my other birthday twin John after almost 9 months of not seeing each other.

Visiting my favorite city Seattle and then falling in love with Portland.

Dressing up for the Sweetheart Ball and dancing with Liam. It was like Prom all over again.

Every compliment he gives me, he makes sure to do it everyday and it makes me giddy every single time. He is so cheesy and I love it.

Our first mini trip to NJ and Washington, DC.

Making new friends. It was hard to move away from my friends and my family (when they're home), I moved away from everything I knew and left on my own to a place that was totally unknown to me. At first, it was difficult to find a group that was similar to me, especially in my position I did not know how close I could get to some employees. I finally found that group I enjoy spending time with and hanging out doing nothing crazy but enjoying each others company.

Falling asleep to the sound of his voice singing to me.

Going to my childhood best friends wedding, it wasn't a crazy big wedding but it was so nice to see her and see how happy she is with her new husband.

Speaking of HGTV, all the moments we've spent in front of the TV watching Property Brothers, Love It or List It, and Fixer Upper. We talk about all the things we love in the houses and what we would/wouldn't want in our home.

Couples pedicure. His nervous look and thinking they were going to make his feet bleed or his embarrassment of how his feet looked was the cutest thing ever.

The Spill Canvas. TWICE. AND I GOT TO MEET THEM. I mean, it was a short meet and greet but it was amazing! I loved the concerts, it made me feel like I was in high school again and reliving those moments was pretty awesome with some of my closest girlfriends.

Visiting my friends back home. I MISS THEM, but it's like we never left and I love seeing them and always being able to catch up where we left off. My home friends are the best.

Realizing that I was thinking about buying my own house. I think I watch too much HGTV for my own good but then it makes me want a house and I can see the two of us working on it together (along with his other two haha). It gives me that warm fuzzy feeling knowing how handy he is and how well we worked together on his house. But I mean, my own home!? I could not see that happening anytime soon and now I'm saving for it. The idea of being a homeowner and being able to fix the house how I

When I realized I loved him and didn't want to be with anyone else, the moments we had been through together in the short time and knowing he was there for all of it, he put up with me and was so open with me. He is so similar in many ways and so different in others but we work, he's that missing piece I knew I wanted in another human being; he is genuine and so good to me. We have a long road ahead of us but we have each other to get through it.
