It's time for a good time

Well 2013 is officially here. I made it through my first New Years Eve alone. In reality though, I didn't spend it alone! I haven't talked about it yet, but my hubby is currently overseas. He's been gone since June and we still have a little over half a year left. We don't get to talk on the phone much since his phone doesn't work over there. Well, it does work, but I'm not cool with spending $300 extra a month to pay the roaming charges. So he just uses his wifi and we FaceTime a lot. It's about fourteen hours time different from here to there and he surprised me me by FaceTiming me right before midnight my time so we could kiss at midnight! Oh yeah, did I mention he's a keeper? Yeah, he is! I even caught his kiss on camera. But what he didn't know was he was in for a surprise, too. I dyed my hair recently and put some pink in and didn't tell him. I wanted to see his reaction when he saw me. And oh boy! He couldn't tell me enough how much he loves it. I'd say that was a success, no?

And here's the big pink hair reveal!

After I got my NYE kiss, my mom called me to wish me a Happy New Years from California! You're probably going to be hearing a lot about her, too. She's one of my best friends and for Christmas she got a Kindle Fire. So naturally, I lent her some of my favorite books for her to read and I hope to get her to review some books as well. So be prepared guys. If you think I'm a firecracker, I get it from my mama! She's currently reading Inescapable by Amy Bartol. Oh yeah, she says "She's loving it!" You'll love her, too.

Another fun thing about this year is I finally got my custom made charms for my charm bracelet. I found someone on Etsy who made the cutest clay cupcake charms and made them into characters. So, since we all know my slightly mild obsession with cupcakes in general, I ordered one that also looked like Indiana Jones. Then I got a brilliant idea to order some that had to do with my favorite book series. So I started off with the amazing author mentioned above, Amy Bartol. I got a red wing, a charcoal grey wing, and a set of vampire teeth. When I opened them in the mail, they were everything I could have hoped for and more!

I guess I should also mention, I'm a total emotional hot mess. If I'm too excited, I cry. If I'm too happy, I cry. If I'm really nervous, I cry. You get the picture, right? I started tearing up when I opened this. Especially over this cupcake. If you haven't read my about me, then you don't know that my husbands name is Indiana and our last name is Jones. So, he is, essentially, Indiana Jones. He even has an Indiana Jones tattoo. But you will see me refer to him as hubby on the Internet. So my love for my husband and cupcakes came clashing together in the beautiful handmade work of art. You're dying to see it, I know. Just wait. I can't wait to add more charms onto this bracelet, but I think I need to find a thicker bracelet. This one seems pretty thin for having such big charms on it. That's going to be a quest in itself.

I think I'm going to try something tomorrow and see how it goes. It'll be a weekly posting event. Hopefully it goes over well.


  1. I love your new hair and I'm going to need that Etsy link to those charms!

  2. I love it, too! This summer you've got to get your color back in yours and we can be semi-twinsies! haha

    And I'll send you the link ASAP!
