I have a problem, folks

I’m trapped in the middle of a nasty, vicious, dirty love triangle.


I love two men.


They are aware of each other, and they absolutely DO NOT like each other.

There has been biting, whining, foul language, you name it.


I wish we could all just get along.

You know, spend quality time together.

I had high hopes that it could happen, but I’m beginning to believe there is no hope.


One has been by my side, through thick and thin, for over four years.

The other has stolen my heart and swept me off my feet.


What’s a girl to do???


I drew a diagram to help my readers understand the tragic predicament I am in:


Why can’t my dog and my boyfriend just love each other already???


Me and Kodi dog.


Me and Jared.

how you know

Wanna know how a girl know’s she has the best boyfriend OF ALL TIME???


It might be that he takes you to the Monster Truck Rally.

It might be that he makes you laugh 24/7.

It might be that he calls your roommate “Food Network” cause he can’t remember her name.

It might also be that he and the aforementioned roommate have agreed to have a “bro-mance.”

It might be that he writes you love letters when he takes his mom to Vegas for Christmas.

It might be that your mom wants to steal his Presidential Chia Pet.

It might be that he pretends like he knew who you were in high school cause you had English together and he thought you were super cute. (FYI, we did not have English together.)

It might be that he totally gets you.

It might be that he watches Jersey Shore with you and your other roommate and laughs at the insanity then vows to never watch it again, though you know he will be on your couch next week doing the exact same thing.

It might be that you’ve dated before, but this time there is nothing holding either of you back.

It might be that he loves the gospel.

It might be that he watches you pay your bills, helps you dismantle your Christmas tree and box it up, then lets you fall asleep on the couch… only to text you when he gets home: “Thanks for the amazing night! Probably one of the best nights of my life!” And he meant it.

It might be that, on your first date (the second time around) he inadvertently calls you a “slut.”

It might be that he makes you feel like you’re worth it.

It might be that he flips your dog the bird when he thinks you’re not looking.

It might be that you can talk with him about anything. And I mean anything.

 It might be the fact that he harasses you relentlessly about wearing a “pirate” shirt and a sweater vest.

It might be that he makes you the happiest you can remember being.


It might be that he’s perfect… for me.

I have a lot to catch up on.

The 48 hour Cali road trip.

Labor Day weekend at Bear Lake.

My first quilt.


The list goes on… but stops at one thing that trumps them all.


I wish she was mine… but she belongs to my daddy.

Her cuteness slays me.

And just because you can’t have too many pictures of a cute puppy:

Those were some of the last words he said to me. Those are the words that keep repeating in my mind. Over and over and over. “You go out and get what you want.” I’ve probably thought that phrase hundreds maybe a thousand times since Wednesday evening. “You go out and get what you want.” A chapter in my life has closed. A chapter many people had opinions about, but a chapter that I don’t regret. I loved him. I still love him. And I know he loves me. But we both knew from the beginning, we were different… and we knew that would make it hard. We had to give it a shot. Two years. We spent two years together. And we were happy. He helped me through some hard times. I helped him grow. We had our ups and we had our downs, but in the end we always loved each other. It was time. We both had to face what we’ve been avoiding for so long. It hurts. He told me “You go out at get what you want.” I want him. But I also want something he can’t give me. He wants me. But he also wants me to be happy. So where does that leave us? Closing a chapter. Opening a new one. I’m going to take his advise… but not right now. Not quite yet. I still hurt. I’m still a little bit confused. We did the right thing, right? Can’t we simply go on pretending it would work out forever? No, we knew this was right. We still know it but that doesn’t make it any easier. So I guess I just have to take his advise, one slow step at a time… and be thankful for what we had.

He loves me.

Beau and I had a wonderful Valentines day. We celebrated on Saturday night and it was simply perfect.

Hello… do you SEE THOSE??? Love, love. love them. ♥  The best part would have to be the fact that the vase is full of chocolate. I can’t make this stuff up. CHOCOLATE. Awesome.

We headed to the Gateway and Beau surprised me with a visit to the Build A Bear Workshop! I spotted a Jack Russell Terrier that looked like My Kodiak… of course I had to get him.

Allow me to introduce you to Kodiak Jr.

Isn’t he darling? He has a sound maker in his paw so he barks, and I got him a scarf and a bone and rope toy.

Beau got a wolf named Hogan who had a striped button up shirt with a vest and sunglasses. He’s classy.

It was fun to break out our inner children for a night.

We had so much fun at Build A Bear that we didn’t have time for dinner at Z Tejas so we hit up the Costa Vida. So yum.

We finished the evening with a viewing of Dear John… it was really good. And mushy. And romantic. And Valentines-ey.

It was most of all fun to spend some time with Beau… and I had to tell you all about how much fun I had! He did good.

I hope you had a wonderful Valentines/Singles Awareness/Buy Yourself a Shirt Day!
