I took one of those from this little blogging project. Not necessarily on purpose, though. My internet was being particularly difficult this past month, so i kind of got out of the habit of spending time online. Last time i blogged it was 2010. Now its 2011, and i plan on being back on this thing in full swing. I have super good feelings about 2011, and i feel like im off to a pretty good start.

Today was a pretty fun little day off. the bestie and i went to have thai for lunch. I absolutely freaking love thai food! I cant believe it took me 25 years to realize it! I had it for the first time back in November in Portland and i've been hooked ever since.We went to a couple of flea markets next, and i got a dreamcatcher, a petite silver opal ring and some adorable crocheted fruit potholders. When we were about to leave, we realized that her car had a flat tire. Womp, womp. Both of us are pretty much clueless in the mechanical/car malady department, but we were willing to give our first tire changing experience a go. We must have looked pretty pathetic because a very nice man just came up and took over. I was so thankful because it felt like it was about thirty below outside today, and i was already shaking like a chihuahua and couldn't feel my hands. I love it when you realize that there are still some nice people in this world.

After that near-fiasco, my cousin met up with us, and we went to Dallas to see the movie Blue Valentine. It was pretty good even though it was one of those movies that doesn't have a happy ending. I kind of appreciated it for that fact because it just made it seem more true to life.

I am supposed to go see my cousin try on wedding dresses on Saturday. I'm really excited! We are only two months apart, and she has always been more like a sister to me. We grew up together for the most part, but we kind of drifted away from eachother once college started because she went away and i stayed local. She asked me to be her maid of honor, and i couldn't be more happy about it. I can't wait to see the style of dresses she chooses!
