My Hot Valentine’s Date Last Year

 

Behind the Scenes of “My Hot Valentine’s Date”:

  • I love making little Snapchat “movies” and would come up with the most random (and I think pretty creative ;)) ideas of what they should be about.
  • The idea for the entire story just came to me randomly one day.  We all know Pizza is bae, and I wanted to make fun of how my first single Valentine’s Day was going to go.  🙂
  • One of my best friends, Stephanie, filmed this video for me.
  • I made the story on a Saturday night in, had no makeup on, and no idea I’d be sharing this video with the world. 
  • This was back when I had short, dark hair at the beginning of 2017. My hair has grown a lot and is now blonder since then.
  • By the time we got to the part of pizza, it was cold… 😦   No worries, the oven came through so I could enjoy the rest later.
  • I honestly thought this Snapchat story was so cheesy (pun intended).  OriginallyI only posted it to my Snapchat account.  I was so surprised when I started getting feedback of how people loved it and thought it was so funny.  I then decided to upload it to my Instagram and Facebook account.  Hey, if it made someone smile, or even laugh, even if it was AT me, then that made me feel so good. 

 

I wasn’t planning on making another Valentine’s Day video this year, because honestly I had no creative ideas of what to make it about….until recently!! I am currently working on another video and I’m so excited to share it! Spoiler alert: there will be other people in it helping me out this year!! Stay tuned!

A date that ended horribly wrong that I wish I could delete

Things have been a little serious lately around here with my stories, so let me lighten the mood a little and tell you a dating story. It may make you laugh….shake your head in disbelief…or make you think I’m a horrible person…(I did tell you guys earlier I was far from perfect…this is a judge free zone here, right?)

I like to move it, move it…..except when nothing is ready

Take a minute and think about where you live: everything you own, all the furniture, all the things hung on the walls.  Now let me ask you this: Could you move everything out of your house today, right now? You have the whole day, but nothing is packed, no moving truck has been booked, no storage unit rented, and no preparation whatsoever.  Well before you underestimate yourself, let me tell you that it is possible and pretty much describes how the weekend went when I decided to move out.

The Best M&M Cookie Recipe

I love making these M&M cookies for parties, work, or just to have at home. They are so easy and quick to make.  Not to mention, I always get so many compliments whenever I make them.  I originally found the recipe on Pinterest and the page can be found here. I have added a few of my own findings to the recipe below.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

My New Year’s Eve Disappointment

I had such high expectations for my New Year’s Eve last year.  My friends and I went to a big masquerade party complete with food, a live band, dancing, and all of your typical annoying party horns and new years props.  It was a formal party that we got to dress up for. I was so excited! My first single New Year’s eve! The possibilities were endless.  I had the typical New Years fantasy that every single girl has at one time or another.  Go to this party, meet a special someone, and at the stroke of midnight, have a new years kiss that rocked my world! Anyone else? Just me who has this fantasy?Jan

We get to the party and start to eat and dance.  To my extreme disappointment, I’m pretty sure there were only 4 single people there that night at the party.  Me and my two friends and this other guy we met, who for the life of me, I can’t remember his name.  Everyone there was coupled up, not to mention it seemed to be an older crowd.  Adding on to that extreme disappointment, the only kiss I had at midnight, was the kiss goodbye to my fantasy that completely did not happen.  The night winds down, party is ending and we are leaving.  On the way out we met a girl who was waiting on her boyfriend to come out of the bathroom.  When he came out, they annoyingly started being the cutest couple ever, all in love and what not. I say annoyingly because I was hating, mad hard, and for the first time the realization of being single set in.

Now this is a story all about how, my life got flipped, turned upside down.

Alright this is it! It’s go time! Time for me to share my first story on my single journey I started back in June 2016.

Let me start by asking the question, why do people stay in relationships when they aren’t happy? When they know it’s not in God’s Will? When they know that the person they are with is not their future spouse? Well, my answer to this 2 years ago would’ve been, “Well we live together, we’ve been through a lot, I have my routine, I’m comfortable, I may not be happy but I feel secure and stable, and God? Who dat?”

All the Single Ladies!!!

So if you read my last blog post you know the why. Why I started this blog. But now let me cover the what. What is this blog going to be about? What can be expected?

I’m a firm believer in the expression “There’s a reason for my season.”  I’m 26 years old and have been single for a year and half. Before that, I was in long term, back to back relationships. I began my single journey in the summer of 2016. And let me tell you, that was an experience I’ll never forget and that I’ll talk about and share soon. I’m a completely different person than the girl I was 2 years ago. I know who I am, I love myself, but most importantly have a relationship with God. Don’t get me wrong, just like with anything else in life, being single isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. It took me awhile to get to the place that I currently am in my single season of life. I’m going to be real with you and tell you that sometimes it’s frustrating, discouraging, and not fun waiting for the man God has for me. It’s natural to want to get married, start a family, and start that journey of life.


Are you with me still? Have I lost you yet? In a nutshell I’ll be sharing my testimony which includes past relationship experiences and my dating stories. That’s right, the good, the bad, and the funny. 2017 was the year I started casually dating and child let me tell you, that has been another experience in itself that I’ll also talk about and share soon. It’s hard out there in those streets dating as a Christian woman trying to find my future husband. Can I get an Amen?
PSA: this is not a Taylor Swift, ex boyfriend bashing outlet. This is me sharing my experiences and my journey. I will not be sharing names, telling other people’s life stories, or using this to point out anyone else’s flaws except my own. Because let’s be real, I and anyone for that matter, has no place to judge anyone. I also can’t speak on behalf of anyone and have no right to tell anyone’s stories except my own. I will respect everyone’s privacy and even my own to a certain extent.

 But just as life isn’t only about boys and relationships, I will be sharing other things as well on here. I have many other hobbies, interests, and stories to share.

Everything from baking to beauty tips. Occasionally, I may slip a random home decor DIY or infamous Snapchat story that I love to make on here. So if you’re interested and would like to join me on this journey then get ready for some corny jokes, stories that’ll make you laugh, maybe shed a tear, but stories that are 100% real and honest.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”          -Jeremiah 29:11
