Day 29: Where you picture yourself in five years

I love thing question because I really like thinking about what my life could become. I am so excited about the future and everything it holds. I am ready for the happiness it brings and even about the "bumps" I will have to conquer. Some days I will just pause when I walk outside in the morning, take a deep breath, and thank God for allowing me to have a chance at life. I know it sounds cheezy, but there are those days where I really think about how fortunate I am to have the friends, family, and life that I have. In five years, I see myself with a husband and a kid. Of course I want more kids but not within five years from now. Hopefully I will be working in a hospital, clinic, or private practice. I can't wait to see what life brings. And until then, I have my little bloggy to inform you of all the moments between now and then :)

Day 28: A picture of something you wish you could forget

One of the things I wish I could forget is getting my wisdom teeth taken out. First off, I have the tiniest veins you have ever seen and so thats a pain when doctors think they can immediately get a needle into my vein. Therefore, it usually takes several people and several pokes to get a needle in there. So by the time I recover from the poking, I look like i have bee dirt racing from all the bruises. Second, I hate getting put to sleep. I am so afraid that something will go wrong and I will never wake up. This is the conversation that happened between the nurse and I as I was falling asleep. "I think I am dying." "No ma'am, you are not dying, you are doing just fine." "No, but really, I see a white light and that's what you are suppose to see when you are going to heaven and dying." Then, I was out. Not to mention my pain medication did not work and it took me a week to recover. Not fun, not fun at all. But I am glad it is over and I no longer have jumbo teeth crowding my "expensive teeth" as my dad likes to call them. Braces were another thing I didn't really favor. That conversation is for a different day. On a side note, I found a new shopping website that I am literally addicted to. I honestly want every single dress on the website, and yes, I did go through all 68 pages of them. Its called ASOS. So, swing by and pick yourself up a goodie :)

Day 27: your first concert

Ohh man, was this a night to remember or what. I think I was in 5th grade and got to see spice girls...those girls danced and sang so hard and I might have been singing just as loud as they were. Me and my best friends and of course our chaperones all loved the concert.

Day 26: your favorite piece of clothing

This is a really hard task because I LOVE clothes. Ironically, I think my most worn items are those that are baggy and look like lounge wear. Recently, I love getting plain shirts and dressing them up with accessories. I cant pinpoint my favorite piece of clothing but I can tell you my favorite brand, which is piko 1988. I wear the three shirts I have from them constantly. They are so comfortable and you can wear them when you are lounging around or out on the town. The picture above is obviously not me but another piko friend..isnt she precious? I just love the look. They are so hard to find so whenever I find something from them, I snag it quickly and I am never disappointed!

Day 25: A picture of something you wish you could change

Something that I really wish I could change is overly thin models/the way women think they are suppose to look. It really grosses me out when the models bones are showing and this is the message that is showed to women all over the world. This is not the way that women should aspire to look and it makes me really sad when girls obsess over looking like this. Don't get me wrong, I definitely think that exercise and healthy eating is a must in life. But this is getting to far. Be proud of who you are and what you look like, you are beautiful.

My favorite holiday has to be July 4th. I love all the things the holiday represents. I enjoy cooking out, the warm weather, and the joy that comes with this holiday. Whenever I think of July 4th I get so excited!!

Day 23: A picture that can always make you smile

One of the pictures that can always make me smile is this one of Meredith and I at Brooke's debutante ball. Meredith and I always have a blast together and it is ridiculous all the shenanigans we get ourselves into. She goes to nursing school in Albany and I miss her very much!

Day 22: Something you are afraid of

I am terrifying of flying. Every time I get on a plane, I count down the minutes (yes, every minute) until I am off the plane. It is very exhausting and scary. I fear every little turbulence bump and I am constantly looking around at people to see if they are scared too. It all started back on my plane trip home from New Zealand. On the way home, we got stuck in a storm and a jet stream, the worst combination. It was a large plane (a double decker) but it was getting tossed around as if it was a qtip in the wind. I was terrified. Air France had just crashed a week before, so that was in my mind. Plus, it didn't help when a woman started screaming in the back of the plane. Anyway, plane rides have never been the same since. Hopefully I will get over this one day because there are many many places I want to travel, but for now...terrified.

Day 21: your favorite animal

Well of course I cant pick any other animal besides my precious pup, kenzie. She means the world to me and to me is not just a dog. I am not sure what she really is but she is freakin weird. I love everything she does and everything she is. Besides her, pandas are pretty cool.

Day 20: something you wish you were better at

I really wish I was better at tennis and played on a team or something. The sport is so fun and I enjoy watching the sport too. One day I hope to join my husband on a neighborhood tennis team haha. When I went to see Andy Roddick play a few weeks ago, it made me want to play even more! Kris and I have been going out on the courts a lot lately, so hopefully I will get better!

Day 19: A picture of your favorite book

Oh, I am so excited about this post! I absolutely love to read and find it so relaxing. I always end up staying in the bathtub with a book way longer than anyone should be allowed. My favorite book of all time is "The Help." I think it is so amazing to hear the stories of those women and it taught me many life lessons. I will never forget reading this book and I will cherish it for a long time. Each page was wonderful and I am so glad I took the time to read it.

Recently, I have been sucked into the Emily Giffin series. I cannot get enough of it! I refuse to put it down. I read the first two books in two weeks. Its safe to say that I am obsessed.

day 18: A place that you would love to travel

GREECE!! I have wanted to go there so badly. So, maybe Sister of the Traveling Plants swayed me a bit, but I think it looks so beautiful. This is definitely my number one pick. Hopefully my dream will come true one day!

day 17: a picture of your most treasured item

I have always loved pictures and considered them to be really special. I especially love this picture of me, my brother, and two of my cousins, matt and will. I love thinking back to my childhood and thinking about all of the fun times I had. I keep this picture framed in my room to remember those times and how cute we were. I love my family.

day 16: something that has made a huge impact on your life recently

When I think of this statement, I immediately think of a book that I have been reading on and off. The book is called "Fearless." It is an amazing book that covers a lot of different things that people would be afraid of and how to conquer those fears. Since, recently graduating and being unsure of where my life is heading, these words have been healers. The text really directs me into a positive path of thinking and helps me cope with my fears about the future. I will be referencing this book for many years to come!
