..is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love.

I don't think there's an easy, or correct, way to write this post. I honestly don't want to write this post. It'll prove to be the icing on top of my huge mud pie of a week.
So, instead of focusing on the bad, I'm going to focus on the good.

Monday night when it happened, I walked all the way to Katie's house. No questions asked, she sat by me on the couch while I cried and told her everything. She drove me home because she knew I shouldn't be walking home that late at night.

When I texted her that I couldn't be alone the next morning, she called me immediately and told me I needed to come straight over. She spent the entire day with me, taking me with her on her errands and putting up with my sad puppydog mopeyness. In fact, she spent almost every waking second with me for the next few days.

She hugged me and told me it was all ok. That there was a plan and that either way, this breakup was a good thing. She knew me better than I knew myself in my time of denial. All I can say is that through all of this, no matter what happened between me and him, I'm so glad I had my best friend by my side. She showed me just how much I'm cared for and loved. And I love her so much. I really don't deserve such a good friend.

And this goes out to everyone who was so nice to me during that week! I'm sincerely so grateful to each and every one of you who took the time to make sure I was ok. I love you all so much!

You've been my best friend for 5 years. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love you as my best friend, and that will never ever change. You're such a great person and showed me how to feel beautiful and confident and loved. I'm so glad this ended the way it did, where I can look back and know this is right.
You're so wonderful.
Thank you for everything.

Ok guys, I'm done with sappy posts! I just knew this had to be done.
Anyone want a mud pie? I've got plenty of time to make them now. :)

On the side of the ocean.

After our fairytale day in Disney, we traveled on down to the magical land of Oceanside for a couple days being lazy on the beach.
We frolicked, we tanned, we ate s'mores by the bonfire..
We gorged ourselves, we partied, we drank..
Life was good!

Ok so we didn't really drink. All our drinks were virgin.
But we thought it would be fun to pretend we were cool.
I miss it so much and it's been hard to get back to the reality of school and work all day erryday.

Oceanside, I promise I'll be back soon!

Deets on Disney.

Well hi there bloggers and bloggettes!
It's been a while since I've been on here, but we're all back and happy from Disneyland. Seriously I love that place more than anything in the world. I wish we could have stayed forever.
I'd sleep in a trashcan if it said Disneyland on it. Seriously.
Anyways, these are just some of our adventures from that beautiful day!

Picture overload! You know how I do.
All I know is, I can't wait to come back to this magical land!
After I leave the horrible land of school books and homework.

How are your guys' first weeks of school going?

Dreams come true.

A couple days ago, Jake and Katie came over to help me paint my room so I can start finishing my room.
I was so happy that I found the color I wanted, in Disney paint, called Dreams come true.
What could be more perfect for a 20 year old girl who doesn't want to grow up? I do not know.
Speaking of dreams coming true, we're going to be gone for the next couple days in my favorite place ever.
I bet you could guess.

Have a good weekend, loves!

Bedroom blues.

{via pinterest}

I wish I could say these are my rooms, and that I bought my own house and have 4 rooms that I sleep in each day of the week, and that I'm amazing at decorating my rooms in cute vintagey ways.
Alas, I am not.
And my room still looks like a storage closet for a hoarder.
Maybe I'll finish sometime before Christmas.

If not, I'll just ask Santa for a new room.

Amaze on.

Sometimes you really want something, but it is 65 buckaroos plus shipping, and you're just not quite ready for that kind of commitment and you have to tell your something "let's take it slow."
Sometimes you cry yourself to sleep thinking about how badly you want it, when you realize that it is probably unhealthy to cry so much that you flood your bedroom.
Sometimes a lightbulb goes off in your head and you scream aloud "EUREKA!" for joy at your brilliance.
And sometimes, you order things on Amazon because they are 25 smackers cheaper, with free shipping.


I have a cushy spot in my heart for vintaged photography, and when I saw this beauty on the UO website I just about died. The pictures that this little lovely takes are breathtaking and inspiring.
I'm so glad that I finally can hold it in my hands and coo it to sleep.
My first project with it will be next week when me and my best friends take a road trip to Oceanside and Disneyland. I'm so excited to see what my new baby will show me about some of my favorite places!

Oh, and thank you Amazon, for rocking my little world.

I've been way too busy doing not too exciting things to blog lately.
I keep trying to think of creative things to talk about and cute pictures to take, but honestly, I don't have the energy! I'm seriously pooped from moving. And redoing my room. And working.
But at least working doesn't involve much heavy lifting.
Especially when I'm babysitting and adorable 20 pound girl who loves watching The Lion King and giving me sheepish smiles when she comes and sits next to me on the couch.
I really think I have the best job in the world, between her and her brothers.

I die from cuteness.
