free cobbler? yes please!!

*this is not a sponsored post*

hey it's friday again!! isn't that freaking fantastic!! i am so happy to say that after a very rough monday, this week was a thousand times better than the previous weeks.  i can't even tell you how happy i am to say that.  really.  thank you so much for your prayers and love and support.  this week has gone by so fast which i just couldn't be more grateful for given how terrible the previous two weeks have been.

last night, i got to attend a super fun blogger event at cobbler cove at station park! station park is a new mall that is about 20+ miles north of where i live.  it is a gorgeous outdoors mall with a water fountain and an ice skating rink.

near the skating rink the overhead music started playing "the way you look tonight" so i grabbed taran and started slow dancing with him. i demanded a lot of dips and twirls, of course. 

it was nice and cozy and i got to meet a few other bloggers! 

mikell was supposed to go with me, but was super super sick so i took taran instead.  it was such a fun date! even though taran felt a little uncomfortable with all the women.

i have said it before and i will say it again! i love the friends that i have made through blogging! i love aubrey and amberly and was so embarrassed when i saw amberly for the first time in a few months and didn't even know she was pregnant! sorry amberly for being such a loser friend!

i was kind of in love with my new outfit i got for the event at costco of all places, so i had to pretend i was a model and took dramatic pictures because isn't that what you are supposed to do when you look good?

aren't the lights so pretty???  it's like a sparkly winter wonderland! 

now a few other things,

i am SO EXCITED AND HAPPY about the great response emelia and i got from out announcement yesterday!! please, please join in on the linkup! we just want to build each other up and create a supportive and comforting environment where no one feels alone, no matter what their struggles are.
i have started working out religiously and got a polar watch to track it.  i was a dancer for 12 years and i have always felt that because of my adolescent training, i bounce back really quickly from months on the couch to exercise.  it takes a few times of huffing and puffing before something gets easy.  i am now not burning as many calories as i was when i first started this new workout dvd.  so now i have to start a harder one that is longer to get the same result. bleggghhhhhhhh. blerg.  

i can't wait to share more dating stories like i did on monday! our anniversary is now only 9 days away and i seriously CANNOT believe it!! i am fighting with all my might for february 8 not to come because i want us to still be newlyweds!! but you know what?  we are going to be newlyweds for as long as we like.  we will probably be 80+ and still be newlyweds.  
we ran into an ex of taran's the other day.  he had no desire to talk to her.  he thought i would be mad and jealous like i have been in the past when we run into an ex, but i just thought it was funny.  of course i looked at her to see if she was prettier than me, and yes, she was very pretty.  oh well.  i'm the one that got him! 

are you like that too?? do you get jealous hearing about your partner's ex's or is it just me? taran told me in our 8 month hiatus, he dated two women.  he had two relationships in 8 months!! his response was "well, when they dump me after a month it's easy to date two girls in 8 months."  i got annoyed.  like who bounces from one girl to the next like that? i'm being ridiculous.  stop it, lauren.
