Sorry for my disappearance!

Hey guys!

Wow, it's really been too long. I've just had a lot of random stuff come up lately that's kept me away from the computer. I haven't been able to write any blog entries or even read my favorite blogs! (I'll be doing a lot of catching up in the next few days!)

So, if you're curious about what I've been up to, it hasn't been all that exciting. March 30th was amazing, though. That marked the third anniversary with my boyfriend, Zach. I had a lot of fun! He made me a romantic dinner (which tasted amazing, by the way. I'm glad he's such an awesome chef, because I can't cook at all!)
(The boyfriend chopping up Peppers to throw on our steak. Yummm!)

He also made me a homemade milkshake. Which was awesome, because I really don't like milkshakes at all, unless they're made by my boyfriend. Maybe it's just because he overloads them with sugar...

Yeah, it's probably because he overloads them with sugar.

And if you're wondering what we got each other for presents, then wonder no more! I, being absolutely broke, decided to make a little homemade gift. I baked him some cinnamon bread.

(I might not be able to cook, but I can bake a mean cinnamon bread.)

And I sewed him a little dragon plushie!

I haven't sewed in a long time, so it was interesting making a little plushie that was so much more complicated than I'm used to making. I had to relearn to sew. But I managed to get it done! And he seemed to like it. (At least, he was good at pretending that he did).

I got the idea for this plushie from this youtube video by the way: How to Make a Kawaii Baby Dragon Plushie

Maybe you're wondering what he got me. Well, first of all, he bought my favorite kind of flowers, Stargazer Lilies!

I still have them in a vase today, but they've finally started to wilt. :c

I don't know if you've smelled Stargazer Lilies before, but if you haven't, you need to. They smell so sweet, like candy. I always get in the mood for things like nerds or sweet tarts when I have some of these flowers around.

But that's not all he got me! I also received this really beautiful ring!

Unfortunately it's too big to fit on my ring finger, so we're going to go get it resized soon. Until then, I'm just wearing it on my middle finger.

And my family is too adorable. I showed my grandma and her and grandpa were calling up my parents trying to find out if me and my boyfriend were engaged or something. I got that question a lot for a while, actually! But no, still just dating! There's no way I'm going to even think about marriage until I get a college education and move out of my parent's house.

I wish I could have taken a better picture of the ring! But all I had was my phone, and that was as good as I could get. Next post, I promise I'll try to show you guys a clearer picture!

Oh, and for what I was wearing: I threw on my favorite dress! And it was so nice out, I actually went without tights. Which I sort of a big step for me. I really dislike my legs, and I've always thought they were too chubby to be uncovered. But I'm finally starting to feel more confident after losing so much weight since last year.

Anyway, it got chilly that night, and we wanted to walk down to the soda machine to grab a couple sodas. So I borrowed my boyfriend's (way too big) hoodie, threw on some socks and shoes, and headed out. The resulting look was this:

Yes, I am oh so stylish. I also blocked my face because I was making the most ridiculous expression. So please excuse the giant pink dot obscuring my face.

So yeah, that was my anniversary.

Since you've last heard from me, I've also gone through having my basement semi-flooded, having my computer and iPhone cord chewed up terribly (I know have no iPhone cord, and a lovely band of electric tape decorating 2-3 inches of my computer cord), and I've been playing Harvest Moon pretty much nonstop with all of my free time.

If you're unfamiliar with Harvest Moon, it's this really cute farming simulation game for Nintendo consoles. I've become obsessed with the latest one for the 3DS 'Harvest Moon: A New Beginning'. It's the first game in the series where you can customize your character, so now I'm introducing my adorable character, Juliet:

Standing next to my alpaca. My poor, shaved alpaca.

Oh, also super obsessed with the game Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. I just started though, so I can't say much about it. Except that I'm completely loving pickpocketing and sneak attacking trolls with my omni-blade daggers. ♥

So yeah, I'll be updating more regularly again now. Sorry I was gone so long!

Now I leave you with a picture of Meeko with his (many, many) toys.

Until Next Time,
Bye Lovlies! ♥
