Marathon Weather (Ft. Worth, TX)

Partly Cloudy
Partly Cloudy


This would be absolutely perfect if the humidity wasn't expected to be 53%. I'm definitely not accustomed to any type of humidity while running.

HGTV Dream Home

Jake and I have been working so hard to win this for the past 2 months. When I say working, I mean: me entering myself, my mom, and my dad in the daily online entry (you're only allowed to enter once a day) and Jake did about a million hand written entries. Ok, not a million, but let's just say that the postal service is not going to have to reduce their work week to 5 days b/c of us. We know that our chances are still very slim, but we are so excited and hopeful that we will win. We're not sure yet what we would do if we won. Our ultimate goal is to move to northern CA so that Jake can start his own business and the house is in northern CA, but is about an hour away from where we need to be. So we're not really making any decisions until we get the call saying we won ;) Keep your fingers crossed for us. And watch HGTV on March 15th to see if we won!

5 years ago on Valentine's Day....

Jake and I went on our very first date. We drove to Tulsa and went to Kilkenny's, an Irish Pub. The waiter sat us next to each other instead of on opposite sides of the table. This made for a slightly awkward first date, but we made the most of it. Upon returning to my place, I checked my mail and noticed that my friend Ryan had sent me a cd of love songs. Ryan was my "gay boyfriend" at the time, but when I mentioned to Jake that my "gay boyfriend" had sent me a cd, he thought I meant "gay" in a different sense and thought I actually had a boyfriend. This assumption resulted in him not calling me for almost a week. Luckily he mentioned it to a mutal friend who was able to clear up the confusion. So besides the confusion, it was a great first date and I've enjoyed every date since then.

Last night we went on a date to Paymon's. It's a Mediterranean Cafe and Hookah Lounge. We had a hookah, some hummus, and tabuli. The tabuli was not as great as the tabuli I've grown up eating though so it was somewhat of a disappointment. Go here: for a virtual tour of the restraunt and lounge. It was really neat and I want to go back soon.

On Monday we are going on another date to The Melting Pot. I'm so excited!! I LOVE this place and I haven't been for several months so I'm excited to have lots of
cheese and chocolate! Well that's all for now. I must begin my exciting day of cleaning and grocery shopping!!

Laughing Starfish

My mom purchased a necklace from this website ( a while ago and then gave me the necklace because she thought it would go well with many of my clothes. She then purchased another one for herself because she loved it so much. I just now got around to looking at the site and I fell in love with so many things! Here are some of my favorites:

All of the pieces are so amazing and the prices are fanastic! Check it out.
