I am finally home in Green Bay for the summer!

My mom arrived at CSP at around 1 pm on Friday (5/8) to help me move stuff into the van to trek home. We made a stop at Noodles for lunch and then headed to my storage facility to throw a few things in that I would not need over the summer. While we were there I got a call form Pizza Ranch. It was one of my managers asking if I was at work already, if not I should just come in around 5. I called back immediately and told them I wasn’t even in the right state, let alone home to get to work in time. Apparently, the scheduler misread my message about when I’d be able to start working again.

When I did get home, around 8:45 pm, we got all of my things unpacked. I then chatted it up with Katherine for a bit as she filled me in on her trip to Greece and Rome over Spring Break. She bought me a beautiful dress and a pair of knock-off Ray Bans as souvenirs!

After our chat, I headed to Pizza Ranch to surprise Trevor. It was such a great moment. We hadn’t seen each other in about a week and a half. Being reunited after not seeing each other for a while or being able to talk much is one of my favorite things about being in a relationship. It makes you cherish your time together so much more and you’re more excited to see each other. I did feel kind of scandalous kissing at Pizza Ranch though…

Trevor and I had originally scheduled a date for Saturday to go see Avengers:  Age of Ultron and get lunch after. However, since my start date was misunderstood-I was scheduled to work Saturday 10-4. So we made a spur of the moment plan to see it Friday night at 10:30. *Flashback* I think I saw the 10:30 showing of the first Avengers with my first bf, that was our first date-and I fell asleep during it. This time I didn’t fall asleep though!

It was so nice to be able to spend some time together after not seeing each other for a while. Being apart made me not miss the days of being in a long distance relationship at all.

Summer 2015 has officially begun! It will be filled with nannying the Schlies boys, working at Pizza Ranch, planning a wedding, going to the gym, and a lot of fun! (Now if only the weather would cooperate…)


Birthday Recap

What an amazing weekend!

I am so blessed to have such an awesome fiance and to have been able to celebrate his birthday with him! So here’s what all happened on Trevor’s “crazy” 21st birthday!

His day started off with a surprise breakfast made by me! I woke him up with the traditional saying “Wakey-wakey! Eggs and bacy!” So I did just that, I woke him up with fresh eggs and bacon. I wish I would have taken a picture of him getting his food, because it was precious how surprised he was to receive a fresh breakfast in bed on his birthday!

After breakfast, I gave him his card and presents. I made his homemade-and I am quite proud.

Trevor’s Birthday Card

Trevor was quite the fanatic of Left Shark from the Super Bowl. Originally I was going to incorporate it into his gift, but forgot until it came time to make his card.

For the rest of his actual gift, I splurged. I bought him a nice Teakwood candle from Target. I could not find the exact one-but I am about 95% sure it is the same brand/style as this one: here. I also got him an absolutely amazing watch. He has had his eye on various watches, but wanted to find the perfect one. He decided MVMT carried his #1 pick. It was so hard to keep it a surprise from him, I knew he would love it. I couldn’t help but splurge a bit on him. See it: here. Honestly, it looks so beautiful online, but it is even more so in person! I love seeing how joyful he is when he puts it on and is wearing it.

After presents, Trevor recorded with his friend, Justin who was in town from Eau Claire for the weekend. We then headed to “lunch” (it was almost 2) at Culvers. I enjoyed a grilled chicken sandwich and a turtle sundae there. Around 4 we journeyed to Mall of America to find some wedding attire for Trevor, Justin, and Christian. It took longer than we expected and there were a few kinks in our original plan, but it all worked out (hallelujah)! I also found a headband I will wear for the wedding while we were there! I absolutely love Francesca’s, but normally cannot allow myself to spend so much on things as they are rather expensive. But hey, it was perfect and it’s for my wedding-so why not?! Take a look at it: here.

After a long day at MOA, we booked it to Mystic Lake Casino. In Minnesota, you only have to be 18 to go to the casino, otherwise I would not have been able to go in-like in Wisconsin where you have to be 21. I went in with $20. At one of the slots machines, I was at about $16 and figured I would be walking away with nothing, but I hit three “k”s which meant I got 10 free spins! The machine auto spun for me 10 times. By the end of my turn my ticket printed out at about $113! That was my highlight of the night-and I was the big winner of our group. It was a blast! While we were there, Trevor also had his first legal drink. He had a Summer Shandy (which he didn’t even finish…).

Trevor turns 21!

What a crazy awesome weekend. Despite not getting much sleep-I feel much more relaxed going into this week. Now to get over these awful allergies!


So, today is a pretty awesome day! It’s my wonderful fiance’s birthday!

I am so blessed to have this amazing guy in my life. It’s hard to believe that we met about three years ago from now and that our first jobs would be what brought us together. Kinda crazy, eh?

I’ll be honest, I think I like other people’s birthdays more than my own–I love giving gifts and making people feel special! Hopefully in my next post I’ll include all of the awesome things I had planned for Trevor’s 21st. (Sadly going to bars and getting wasted will not be one as I am not yet 21 myself.)
