2nd Country - Amsterdam

So, on our and my hoodrat friends visited Amsterdam.
While we thought we would be confronted with free spirited druggies and prostitutes, we were wrong, somewhat...
Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever been too.
And we will definitely go back.
(more to come)

We had the best time with 9 of our closest friends.

And formed even stronger relationships than before we left.

We are stronger than ever in our friend family.

Life is good.

Sorry I've been MIA - we went away, on our trip to Europe finally.

It was magical.

Walking down cobblestone streets in Paris.

Visiting with boyfriend's Scottish family in Amsterdam.

And finally, singing with das Germans at Oktoberfest.

Paris made us all feel even more beautiful.

I feel different

There is just something about being a red-head.
I feel different - in a good way.

Something to Laugh (and Smile, and Skip) about

Even if I have a bad day at work,
I have a job, and I have a great life.
Even when I'm feeling lonely and misunderstood,
I have a boyfriend, and he loves me unconditionally.
And even if some days it feels as if the world and the universe are completely against me,
I have the most amazing friends and family, and I am one lucky girl.
I try to keep it all in perspective.
There really is always something to smile about.

It's all Greek

Boyfriend and I had a craving for Greek food.
So we went with my cousin and her boyfriend to our favorite new Greek restaurant.

Safe word is Bananas

When you've been dueling tubes for nearly half an hour.
And the water is pushing your bikini bottom so far up your ass you just can't take it anymore...
You need a safe word.
And then you jump.

If you wear a life jacket upside down...

You can make a great raft.

Cheers to 18 years

We met in 5th grade.
It still feels like we hang out every day, each time I see her.
She's been my friend through everything.
And she always will be.

Dallas Bound

Wednesday I was off to Dallas for work.
I was also fortunate enough to extend my trip to visit an old friend.
We've known each other since we were 11 years old.
And now she has a little pumpkin of her own.
