Seven Years

7 Years

Celebrating 7 incredible years with the love of my life! It has been quite the last 7 years and I am so excited to see what happens next in our life together! I could blab on and on and on about how much I love him and what an extraordinary adventure this has been, but instead here are 7 things.

1. He is so handsome in plaid – and it’s a good thing because he wears a lot of it. He is handsome all the time.

2. He makes me laugh every day.

3. He helps me see things in a new light and challenges me to be my best.

4. He supports me always.

5. He loves me unconditionally.

6. I love him more than I thought it possible to love someone.

7. And I get to marry him and live happily ever after!

I love you so much, Scott!


Monday Monday Monday.

Today was very … Monday. Do you ever have those days? Where it really feels like Monday?

We had such a wonderful weekend. We relaxed and enjoyed each others company and day dreamed about our future and did obligatory grocery shopping and laundry. And it was simple and easy and I miss it.

Get Ready, Kuwait!

Here she comes!

Have you met my mom? Well, just in case you haven’t, or you didn’t already know – she is AMAZING! She went to Boston this weekend (just in time for the storm) for a job fair and is coming home with a job teaching elementary drama at the American School of Kuwait! She has been planning and interviewing and researching and writing resumes and filling out applications and orchestrating the adventure of a lifetime! This weekend was the moment of truth and everything is falling into place! She had back-to-back interviews for many hours straight, truly exhausted herself in telling everyone how awesome she is, got three job offers (in Turkey, Kuwait, and UAE), and is coming home with a position teaching elementary drama at the American School of Kuwait!

Shut the front door – I’m choking back tears!

Dear Mom,

You are truly an inspiration to me. I have watched you suffer for the past several years, wishing things were better, and my heart has ached for you. Through the unfairness of it all you picked yourself up, put yourself out there, and got the best response you could have possibly gotten! I know how challenging this has all been for you and I know how on top of the world you must feel right now! You received some incredible feedback, boosting your self esteem right back up to where it should be, and then even higher! I am elated for you and I can hardly wait to see how this adventure of a lifetime unfolds for you! 

I truly believe that I speak not only for myself when I say that you deserve every bit of this gift! You are an incredible woman and I look up to you and aspire to be my best because of you! 

I love you so much, I am so proud, and I can hardly wait to see what the next few years hold for you!

Love always, Adrianne

My amazing mom!

What a woman!

Flood gate of tears now open. I’m going to go get a tissue.

P.S. I believe the next several months will include some whirlwind go-help-Mom-get-her-things-ready-to-move-to-Kuwait weekends!!! I can hardly wait!

P.P.S. Christmas 2013 in Kuwait!? I think so.

“I went on the internet and I found this!”

Top Gear anyone? Jeremy Clarkson? Yeah, my boyfriend watches this and I may or may not have seen a few episodes. It’s great when I’m in the mood to half-listen and half-watch a TV show while half-doing something else entirely. And it’s a bunch of silly men with British accents talking about cars and other silly things. I mean, come on. Let’s be honest. It’s mostly the British accents, because if it were American it just wouldn’t be as funny.

Moving on. In many episodes Jeremy Clarkson refers to going on the internet and finding something. Now, you (as the audience) never actually see what he found on the internet, but the reaction from the other silly British men is what makes it all that much funnier. Here, I show you.

Which brings me to the entire point of this blog post:

I went on the internet today and I found this! Emergency Compliment. And this was my Emergency Compliment. (Commence fits of giggles.)

It’s Tuesday night folks. Yep, Tuesday night. Here we go week!
