Day Twenty-Nine: Three Wishes

Day 29: Three Wishes

Since it's been almost a solid 3 months since my last blog post, I thought it was high time for an update. Summer has flown right by us, and school has started again for my hubby and many of my friends. I'm still trying to remind myself that school is not on my agenda - it's hard to register when you're used to starting school in August for the past 20 years. It's a hard realization (if you can believe that) because I honestly loved school. 

Summer was packed full of amazing fun for us this year. We got to spend a lot of time with our friends, Kathryn & Darren, and our families of course. We went floating down the Buffalo River for the first time ever in May with Kathryn & Darren... We also went with them to the Poultry Festival up in Rogers in June -- plus countless other fun nights spent with them. 

Here we all are at the Poultry Festival! :)



Here is Ryan grilling out on our porch with our "grass." Many summer nights were spent out here with each other :)
 

Ryan took me to go see The Dark Knight Rises in IMAX opening weekend. I was FLOORED... I've seen it three times already, and it's in my top 5 favorite movies. Batman <3 br="br">

Other than that, we had birthday parties, fun nights, a trip to the lake with my family, and barbeques with family. 

Here I am with Bella on the boat on our family trip to the lake this summer :)



 And here I am with my sweetie <3 p="p">


Ryan and I also just got back from our 7 day cruise to the Bahamas last week. Summer has been full of awesomeness! It's hard to "get back to business" this week. 

We are headed to dinner at the steakhouse here :) dressed up!


this is on our suite's balcony leaving Nassau, Bahamas... 

Beautiful view from our balcony :)

my favorite quarter game in the casino paid off! 




So it may take me forever, but I plan on finishing this darn 30 day blog challenge : ) Today is "three wishes." As much as I love Aladdin, this post is semi-lame. I could make it very serious and wish for world peace and all those things, but I'll make it fun and light hearted... so you won't judge me if I leave off something serious you really care about :)


1.) A permanent vacation with my boo. 

Tell me who wouldn't want this?! Since returning from our vacation, all I can do is think about going on another one. We keep talking about our "post vacation" depression and how wonderful it will be to get to go see other parts of the world together in the future. I can't imagine a 'permanent vacation' where that's all we do!! I'm sure it would get old at some point, and I'd want to get back to counseling... but I'd want to try it out first :)


2.) Eating without getting fat.

Now, c'mon... isn't this every woman's dream? If I get a wish, I want this one for sure. I love a lot of healthy foods, but I REALLY love some bad ones. If I could eat fried catfish, cheetos, french fries with a side of Kit Kat and a big ol' Diet Dr Pepper.... without adding a single pound or "unhealthy" part to me... you better believe I'll wish for that!


 3.) A HUGE music festival with only my favorite artists.

Think about this, music lovers... can you imagine getting this once in a lifetime opportunity to hear all your favorite artists (living or deceased) in one place for however long it might take? Mine would include (but not limited to) the following: 

John Mayer, Coldplay, Incubus, Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Joe Cocker, The Eagles, Steve Miller Band, Brian McKnight, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Jonny Lang, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Grace Potter, Dave Matthews, Blindside, Amos Lee, Jason Mraz, Zac Brown Band, Adele, Ne-Yo, Three Dog Night, The Rolling Stones, Chicago, Carrie Underwood, Dream Theater, Deas Vail, August Burns Red, Eric Clapton, Galactic, Garth Brooks, Jimi Hendrix, ELO, Foreigner, and many others... I think my festival would last a month :) what a freaking wish, though! :)


So I just may be back to blogging usually :) I've missed it... Plus, there's too much to catch up after 3 months. It's been a summer to remember, that's for sure!

im thankful.
