Cheers to a new beginning!

Always be the best person possible. Lend others a helping hand, be genuine, courteous, and spread your love. Don't be too quick to judge because everyone is fighting their own battle. Smile often and stay positive. When you're having a rough day, just take a deep breath. Tomorrow, you'll have another chance to make it right. Be generous to everyone, even those who don't deserve it. Be true to yourself and follow your dreams. Your life is not going to be easy, but if you live it right, it'll be worth the fight. Being alive is a blessing. You have your whole life to live. Make a positive impact on the world. Set big dreams and goals for yourself. Believe in yourself, have confidence, and most importantly, love yourself. You have so much potential. My dreams are a far reach, but if I work diligently, I'm sure I'll be able to succeed. The same goes for all of you. Don't doubt yourself and strive to accomplish your goals. 

The most important thing (to me) is happiness. There is no greater feeling than being happy. I've found true happiness and let me tell you, the view from here is spectacular. The world is such a beautiful place. I want to help all of you find happiness as well. To have you guys feel as happy as I do and to have you guys see the world the way I do.

I wanted to dedicate a post letting all of you guys know that I'm here for you if you need a helping hand. Whatever you're stressing about, whether it's school, family, or boys, you can come to me if you need any advice. You all might not personally know me, but I guarantee you that I'll be here for you. I'll take the time to give you guys genuine advice and comfort. I really hope I'm made some sort of positive impact on your life this year, as you all have made an impact on mine. Thank you all for the support and love. I hope we can continue to inspire one another in the years to come. I love you all :) 

Happy New Years!!!

2011 was an incredible year. Ironically, it was the best and worst year. Too much to stress about- Drama, school, health conditions. However, I learned so much about myself this year. I've grown and matured. I'm going into the new year with a better judgement of character and a more positive attitude. I'm proud of all I've overcome and accomplished. I can truly look at myself and say that I have changed for the better. I'm proud of who I am, the choices I make, and the way I carry myself. I'm happy, and that's all I'd ever ask for. No resolutions for me. I'm just going to dive into the new year with big dreams. I'm going to be happy all year round. I'm going to stay true to myself and love myself. I'm going to give back as much as I can and count my blessings. Thank you guys so much for your love and support. Another year over! Cheers to the new year!!! Starting the year strong and ending it the same way.

Hope you all have fun on New Year's eve. Have a safe night! :)

December 28, 2011; Reno Day 3!

Waaaah, last day ): Woke up pretty early to get ready and check out!! Played at the arcade for hours again and then went to Oceano (same restaurant as last time) for lunch. I love that place! It's gorgeous and I enjoy the food. However, everyone else seems to think the food sucks ): I love seafood though, so I like it! Anywhos, headed home right after. Stopped by vacaville! I bought foundation (ran out of mine), a lace blazer, 2 pairs of shorts, and a mens hoodie. Was super excited to come home to see Hunter. I missed him!!! Also came home to my new iPhone case. I tweeted a pic and i'll post it up here ASAP! Overall, amazing trip. Hope you guys enjoyed reading my summaries! Here are again, photos from my phone :) 

 I look so stubby here! ):
 Clam chowder! (Cute bowls)
 Shrimp, mixed shrimp & veges?, crab meat.
 Got the combination platter (I think thats what it's called...) Delicious! Scallop, shrimp, mahi-mahi, salmon, garlic butter, rice, and veges!

December 27, 2011; Reno Day 2!

Day 2! Woke up super early to go on a breakfast date with babe. (It was out 3 yrs & 11 months anniversary!) We went to Cafe Milano. I had an all american breakfast and babe had some cajun chicken pasta. I love that cafe! Everything was super affordable and it was so pretty. Anywhos, after brunch, we headed to Circus Circus Reno. Played games for an incredibly long time (I won the cutest Elephant ever!! From that camel/ horse racing game. Full game of 16 players won first place! Then babe won first place in a full game. We traded up for the XL prize. YAY!) Met a subscriber of me & Viv. SUPER SWEET! She took a picture with us :) She sent it to us so I'll post it up ASAP! Anyways, after games, we had an early dinner at this buffet in Silver Legacy. I'm not sure what it was called... but they had tons of seafood and meat, which was super yummy! Headed back to the hotel pretty early to go swimming. Stopped by CVS for some water (since the hotel ones were so expensive) and me+Viv ended up buying tons of makeup. I also got Hunter a shirt! LOL Finally got to the hotel and we swam outdoors during the winter. Thank God for the warm pools! Getting out sucked though... It was FREEZING. LOL Went to play in the arcade for a little bit and then jacuzzi-ed again. Here are photos from my phone!
