Lucky Me

When I met Coy I thought he was too good to be true. He was everything I had ever wished for. I realized that he could possibly be “the one” while watching a movie one night. I just came out and said “why can’t I find anything wrong with you?” Before you go thinking “well, that’s random”, let me explain. After a long relationship with a guy who taught me many life lessons, but just wasn’t “the one”. I went through several first dates, few second dates and rarely a third date, because normally by the first or second I would already find something I didn’t like about them. Now, here I am on date #12 with Coy and I can’t figure out why he isn’t already hitched to some girl much nicer than me…. Anyway, I ask “why can’t I find anything wrong with you?” and he turns and says “I’ve been wondering the same thing about you”. “Really? You can’t find anything wrong with me? NOTHING? You sure? Let me list just a few then:

1. I get grouchy when I don’t get enough sleep

2. I get grouchy when I haven’t eaten in awhile

3. I get grouchy around “that time of the month”

4. I get grouchy when you do something I don’t like

You still don’t want to run away?” Nope, he stayed and he has seen the brat that sometimes takes over my body and still stays. Amazing!... Shortly after that I realized I was truly in love with him. The story is a bit funny looking back on it. We had gone to Fort Smith to visit some of his friends and he wanted me to see what “Pub Crawl” was. To make this short, he drank a little too much that night and ended up passing out, sprawled out on the twin bed we were both supposed to share. The first half of the night I slept smushed between the wall and him in the bed but he was nearly falling off the bed in his drunken slumber so I decided he would probably be more comfortable in the bed alone. So, I decided to lie on the floor with my jacket as my pillow and his jacket as my blanket. As I laid there I said out loud, “Aren’t you glad I love you?” Umm, did I say that out loud? I mean I’d thought about how I was falling in love with him before that moment, but here I am saying it out loud to a nearly deaf ear. About 2 weeks later, he told me he had something to tell me but was afraid of my response and I told him not to worry I probably wanted to say this certain something too. That’s when he said he’d known for awhile but wanted to wait for the right time and that he loved me. Since then I have fallen more and more in love with him. Who knew you could love someone so much? He keeps me level-headed and he helps me see all the ways I can become a better person. He is truly the most amazing man I’ve ever met, other than my grandfather who has more patience than any other human being I know. Coy is truly my Mr. Right!

I’d love to hear other people’s stories. Feel free to leave them in the comments.

My Favorite Things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad.

I've been brain storming lately about what I'd like to write about on here. So, with inspirations from other blogs I've read, I've decided I'm going to do a blog on all the things that are my favorites. Some things are ever changing like jewelry tastes and clothing items, but most preferences stay the same like food and wine.

This leaf necklace I've recently fell in love with, but I always loved my peace sign necklace which I got this past December.
Love coffee! Always have, but something has made my mornings even better lately.
I also love Rocky, Kuhmo, Coy and my Iphone. lol

(Made on thy Iphone. lol)

My newest fashion trend has been adding gold to my outfits.

Ooooh! And I've also been loving vests with belts.

My favorite show is True Blood.

My favorite color lately has been purple. It tends to vary with season.

There are so many other things that are my favorites... Sushi, dinner at my Mom's house, planning/having themed parties, etc.

Thanks for reading, guys! Questions? Comments? Leave them for me to read.

Work. Running. Life.

Hey! I’m writing two days in a row!!! WOOT!… I also realized today that I made a few mistakes in my blog from yesterday. I apologize! I need to read and re-read before posting. Also, my preview looked totally different from what I ended up with. TROUBLE. TROUBLE. But practice makes perfect on this thing.

Update on my work life: Yesterday I mentioned having a more stable work schedule. Well, my receptionist job is stable, but my Banana Republic job is so sporadic that it’s hard to plan my life (and I’m a planner). Plus, I don’t even find out till Friday if I work 2 days later on Sunday, so it’s hard to know if I can ever teach Sunday school. Anyway, I was offered a job 2 weeks ago to be a Shift Supervisor for Starbucks. It would be a pay increase; it’s not as far away from my house and also will give me a stable work schedule. Well, I went to interview number one, then two and yesterday was number three. I had to go through all three because it’s a management position. So, now I am waiting… Cross your fingers.

So, I think I’m going to start running… again. I used to run and then I stopped and then I started running again. Then I stopped again. So on and so forth. Well, I started running, again, 3 months ago, ran a race and then got busy and the weather got too hot, so I stopped. The weather shouldn’t be an excuse because (HELLO) I own a treadmill. So, I’m not letting it be an excuse any longer. My cousin, Julie runs year round and I honestly don’t know how. I get bored with it or too busy for it and then begin to miss it so I start again. Am I alone here? Anyone do this other than me? And any advice on how to stay motivated?

Well, in the middle of writing this Starbucks called and I got the job!

Any comments or questions let me know.

Adventures of Kris

Greetings Readers!!

I hate how I’ve only been able to write once a week but just bare with me. I think I’ve found a new job with a stable schedule unlike I’m dealing with at Banana Republic right now. So, hopefully my blog will be come for frequent (cross your fingers).

Thank you to those who have subscribed! I love it!

This past week has been good… the weekend was great. We had a Luau Cookout last night. My camera died before the party even started but I’ve stolen a few pics from friends to share with everyone.

Well, I'm going to try and write again later this week. I hope everyone has a great week and if you have any questions or comments then let me know.
