hey hey hey hey hey it is finally friday!! this week has been unbearably long and difficult, just like last week.  it has been so, so, so horrible because i am an idiot and took stopped taking one of my medicines for my chronic health problem (so vague!!) and that was noooooottttt a good idea.  but this friday morning i have a spring in my step because it is friday, i get more of that medicine today, and yes, did i mention it's friday?  yesterday, i literally and truly thought monday was a week and a half ago.  that is how long this week has felt! 

i have a secret for you that i can't WAIT to share!!!! be sure to come back next week for this special blog project i have been working on.   i  am so excited about it and can't wait to share it with you! an get you involved!! 

i have heard that these awesome elderly folks live on cruise ships because it is more fun than a nursing home but they still get excellent care.  and this week, i read this story about this lady who lost her husband and on his death bed, he told her to keep sailing.  so she sold her home, and lived on a cruise ship for 7 years or something.  the thing she most likes is to dance in the evening.  when they stopped the dancing in the evenings, she went to another cruise ship and has lived on that one for 11 years i think.  she has been to every single cruise port in the world and she has stopped counting on how many places she has been!! she sounds awesome!! the cruise staff is her family now.  

did you watch the youtube interview with obama?  it was good and also awkward.  they had youtube celebrities ask him questions regarding his sotu address.  bethany is only 19 so i was cringing at times, especially at the end.  i think the best well composed intereviewer was hank.  watch it here! it was interesting!  i have never voted for obama or have ever liked him, but recently, i am warming up to him a lot.  i really like what he is doing.

we are going to san fransisco over president's day weekend, which is also valentines day weekend!! i'm so excited!! we got super cheap flights and are staying with my mom's cousins.  i can't wait! i have only been to san fran once, for said cousin's wedding, so please tell me what i should do!! i don't want to miss out on anything! 

for 1 year wedding anniversary (!!!! how did that happen!!!) on feb 8, we are spending the night at this really nice hotel downtown and i can't wait!! really, really surreal that i has already been a year.  i can't believe it! we are going to be newlyweds together forever.  i am so in love with that man.  i hope we are going to be just like my parents.  my mom gets so excited when my dad comes home from work and she touches up her makeup first.  my dad would whisk her away on surprise trips growing up and they are still so in love it is such an inspiration and example to me.  i wouldn't have married taran if i didn't think we would be like that.  but if you are around us, it's kind of gross.  we are just so in love and happy with each other!! 

i was on the so-called homemaker's blog yesterday, check it out! i love q&a posts, they are so fun! 

have a fantastic weekend everyone!! if you have been to san fran, please tell me where to go!

  1. Thanks for the opportunity to win a Starbucks gift card. Enjoy browsing through your blog :)

  2. I read that news story about the elderly lady who lives on a cruise ship. It costs her something like 160k a YEAR to live on the ship... She must be filthy rich if she can afford that!

  3. Hope you're feeling better now *hugs*

    And living on a cruise ship would be a dream! Yummy food, fancy dinner and a show every night, stopping at some of the best cities in the world... swoon!

    Happy Friday :)

  4. I actually just went to San Francisco! Such a great city with tons of things to do. I'm going to make a post about it soon but for now definitely go to Buena Vista for brunch and get their Irish Coffee and schedule an Alcatraz tour right away, they book out weeks in advance.

  5. Nick and I visited San Francisco a few years ago. If you like garlic make sure you check out The Stinking Rose, they had some of the best food I have ever tasted.

  6. That cruise ship story sounds fascinating - what an awesome lady, to keep making the most out of life!

  7. So you wrote this on Friday and I read it on Sunday but for you it might be Saturday, just have to say I like the sound of the cruise ship just saying

  8. I am SO excited about this project ;) and I am crossing my fingers to win this giveaway! LOVE my Starbs!

  9. I hope you had a fabulous weekend after your really long week!

    Can't wait to see what you've been working on!

    And I totally want to live on a cruise ship now!

  10. I loved that story about the woman on the cruise ship. She seems so happy and loving life. I hope to be just like her someday... maybe without the ship part. I don't know if I could handle being away from dry land for that long - but the traveling the world part is definitely a plan I could get behind!


Hearing from you makes my day!!
