[Dirty Laundry]

dirty-laundry

I’m about to air some dirty laundry that a lot of ladies like to hide. Even though I’m no longer single, I do still live alone and continue to participate in some habits that I would never, or at least not right now, want my boyfriend to witness. This list includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Not wearing pants until 2pm on the weekends.
  2. Surviving on virtually zero food in the refrigerator for two weeks.
  3. Sniffing dirty drinking glasses to see if they’re smelly, and if they aren’t, I use them.
  4. Using mud masks multiple times a week.
  5. Gorging on massive amounts of junk food and candy.
  6. Sometimes I don’t shower.
  7. Laying on the couch all day.
  8. Drinking an entire bottle of wine without any help.
  9. Doing squats in my living room.
  10. Farting, or as some people call it…”making a fluffy.”

 

I’m a lady so that last one never happens, but if it did happen in front of my boyfriend I’d simply be mortified. Oh the mysteries of females.

I feel like such a sap saying this, but, I’m super happy. Probably the happiest I’ve ever been while in a relationship, and a lot, practically all of it, has to do with the man I’m in this relationship with. He’s thoughtful, caring, funny, driven, handsome, and so much more.

I’ve never had a good Valentine’s day and after talking about it in passing, he took it upon himself to make the entire weekend one that I will never forget. We went to dinner Friday night, and even though my salad was filled with a massive amount of unwanted bacon, we got dessert for free! We ended the night by watching one very shocking episode of House of Cards.

We rose early, and were on the road by 8am. (I managed to get ready and pack everything up in under an hour. *Pats self on back*) We stopped at one of the many roadside coffee huts, drove through Stevens Pass, which was beautiful, and ended up in Leavenworth, WA. We walked around the pseudo German town as the snow started to fall. Lunch was delicious, we hit the road again and arrived at our final destination of Coeur d’Alene, ID 4 hours later.

The silences weren’t awkward, the views were lovely, and I couldn’t imagine taking that trip with anyone else. Thank you for being mine, Mr. Sullivan.

[Winds that Whirl]

I can’t believe it’s been almost two weeks since I last posted; it doesn’t seem like it was that long ago! Anyway, some sort of cool and fun things have happened, and some not so cool and fun things. In true Stephanie fashion I will make a list:

1. Work has kicked into high gear and although I’m still doing a lot of the same stuff, I did get pulled into some super cool planning and designing for the future of Microsoft’s many websites.

2. The boyfriend and I went to Tacoma for a day trip to share some firsts together. First we visited the glass museum, and then spent a couple of hours at the LeMay car museum. A museum for Mr. Sullivan and one for me.

3. I got home Wednesday to find that my refrigerator had been open all day. I had already had a stressful and mediocre day. It was the icing on a shit cake so I threw out 80% of what was in there. I had no cheese, that made me sad, and I may have cried.

4. I rode the bus downtown. All by myself. My end destination was Pike Place. I bought some goodies for a package I’m sending to my family, mac and cheese at Beecher’s, and some beautifully colored tulips.

5. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and from the hints that my boyfriend has given me, which have been very limited, it sounds like it’s going to be a weekend to remember.

6. My mom is coming to visit in just 25 days. I’m so excited. SO EXCITED.
