Need help with Day 01?
You add a picture of yourself, then underneath it -in the caption- you write fifteen facts about yourself. Such as, 1. I have a fear of heights 2. I've needed glasses since I was three, but never got them. Or something like that.

Need help with Day 04?
Well if there's one particular night that's special to you, or if there is something you do on a certain night each week, month, year, etc. that you have a picture of, that is one thing you could post a picture of.
For example, if you had family bowling night every week and that was special to you, you would post a picture of you bowling or the place you bowl at.
Another example, if you went to party every year (like a holiday party, or just some random party that was held yearly) you could post a picture of that.
And one last example, if there was one big night that made a huge impact on your life or that you really love/hate (such as a night you got got into a relationship with your boyfriend/girlfriend, or your first kiss) then that would be a good picture to post. Many people change that one to 'a typical night' if they think a favorite night is too challenging or they can't think of anything. But the original one was indeed 'your favorite night'
Feel free to change that one to 'a typical night' if you'd like. It doesn't make too much of a difference. :)

Need help with Day 17?
It's basically someone who has changed your life in a big way. Like meeting someone who totally messed up your life, or someone who made it perfect. It could be anyone- your parents, your grandparents, a random guy on the street, a celebrity, a friend, an enemy... Pretty much anyone!

Need help with Day 18?
It's basically something that makes you uncomfortable. A common one is weight, so you could put a picture of a scale. Or perhaps you're uncomfortable about math, so you'd put a picture of some math symbols or maybe even a calculator. (Sorry that one was a bad example)

Victoria’s Pasta Shop

Sooooooooooo… I think my boyfriend looks a little like his dad!

bulmer and dad

HAHAHA!  I laughed for about 15 minutes after we took this picture and the next day for another good 10 minutes.  I love the goofy/cheesy smile!

We ended up going to Victoria’s Pasta Shop for our VD dinner.  We had never been before and decided to give it a try.

 victorias pasta shop

We read a couple of the reviews online before we went.  It was like all reviews… they either hated it or loved it.  We particularly liked the reviews that said when they entered and it was an ugly eye sore.  One review said “DAMN HIPPIES!”  That was, of course, helpful.  A lot of the reviews did mention the service was slow. 

When we went in and seated ourselves, I expected our eyes to start bleeding from the ugliness of the decor, but it wasn’t as bad as the reviews stated.  It did take FOR-E-VER to get our menus, but after we actually had our menus the service wasn’t bad. 


Notice on the menu it says “BV” in several places.  It took us a little while to figure out what that meant.  In high school, my friends and I used to threaten each other with a “BV” a.k.a. black vagina.  Yes, we were weird, but we thought it was hilarious.  Anyways, I saw this and immediately started laughing.  When I explained it to my boyfriend, he just asked, “Can that really happen?”  Hmmmm… who knows?

We both ordered a dinner salad.  They were okay.  The dressing was good, but the salad consisted of lettuce and cheese.

I had the black pepper linguine.  It was good!  My boyfriend ordered a trio of pasta including the lasagna roll.  The pasta was good, but the lasagna roll was not fantastic.  It is basically a piece of lasagna rolled around a HUGE hunk of cheese.  I guess if you REEEEEEEEEALLY like cheese, you will like it.  We thought it wasn’t good at all.

Overall, it was good.  Not nearly as bad as some of the reviews made it out to be.  We didn’t love, love, love it, but didn’t hate it either.

Oh yea… as soon as we went in, we figured out the hippie comment.  It is not your typical Italian restaurant.  It is more of a college-campus Italian restaurant.  I think everyone that works there is a student with a hippie/emo style.  The walls are decorated with local art.  It’s very free spirit.  Not traditional.

Happy Late Valentine’s Day

My boyfriend and I didn’t get to celebrate yesterday, but we will today.  We have been pretty busy!  We are finally moving to a new place and getting away from our current leasing house nightmare.  Hopefully, life will settle down and I will be able to blog a little more.

This is my Valentine:

ryan stache 2 ryan stache

HAHAHA!  He had grown out his beard and was going to shave it off the other night.  I suggested he have a little fun! 

I hope everyone had a happy day yesterday!  Tonight, we will probably cook up a romantic dinner, light some candles and stare into each other’s eyes lovingly… or not.  :)  My boyfriend is not a romantic, and I just crack up at his romantic attempts.  It’s more funny than anything else…

Popular Food by State

I found this on A Healthy Slice of Life’s blog and thought is was interesting!


Oklahoma’s food is fried okra!  My sister-in-law’s mother grows okra and fries it herself.  It’s crazy good!

Cabin Fever

This is what happens when you have nothing to do at home.  You get creative.

A drawing of us walking in the snow…

Walking in the Snow

Oh!  I am so creative… He!  He!

Snow Day!!

Today was a snow day for pretty much all of Oklahoma!  For an outing, we took the dogs around the block.  We had to bundle up!  I had on seven layers!



“But, I can’t put my arms down!!”

 DSCN4140 DSCN4141 DSCN4146 DSCN4148 Dogs had fun playing, but were shivering when we got inside.

DSCN4150My boyfriend even had some ice frozen in his beard…  You can sort of tell…
