Everything happens for a reason…I live by it.

Bike riding…when the weather is ACTUALLY nice….when’s that gonna happen?!

Now, for 7 things about me… I’m just going to answer 7 more questions….because I’m bad at this lol
1.What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up.
Oh boy…if you know me at all, you know I cry at everything. I teared up last night when my sister was TELLING me about some commercial for the Olympics where the daughter wins and goes through the audience to hug her mom….I also cry at ALL the Suburu commercials. I don’t know when I became such a little sissy…I was never like this growing up! haha
2.What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Break someone’s heart, so I wasn’t miserable in a relationship that wasn’t for me.
3.What was the last experience that made you a stronger person?
WordPress erasing this post! lol
4.When was the last time you had an amazing meal?
My gramma’s birthday a few months ago. We got the most AMAZING coconut sorbet. To the point that I was licking my bowl-or really coconut shell, lol. I took the coconut shell home as a memory! haha
5.What do you miss most about being a kid?
Not having to care about much. I mean, how often were you stressed as a kid? How often are you stressed as an adult?
6.What is your first memory of being really excited?
When I was younger, I had one of those water baby dolls. On Christmas Eve, my family took me to FAO Shwarz, and I left my doll there! Obviously, I was really upset….well, flashback a few days earlier, my dad dressed up like my favorite ninja turtle, Raphael, and just happened to still have the costume. My parents went out and bought a new water baby, and set up the camera in the living room, and had Raphael bring my doll back (and left me his hat!)!! Needless to say, watching that video made me a VERY excited child! 🙂 My goodness, if I’m half as amazing as my parents are, I’ll be happy! But what’s really weird, is last year at my job, a little girl left her water baby doll, and can you guess what day it was? Christmas freakin EVE! How weird is that?! I said to myself, I hope her parents are as creative as mine….although doubtful! 😉
7.At what age did you become an adult?
I’m still not an adult!! And judging by my mom, I don’t know if that transition will ever happen for me! hahah xoxo
