im a MUSTANG owner!

May 31, 2010

so, after many weeks of searching online, going to dealerships, test driving MANY mustangs both new and old, i finally found the one! 

Im glad to introduce you to Roxie 🙂

so for months we’ve been waiting in anticipation for the arrival of the last grandchild and cousin on my mom’s side.  Aunt Stacy and Uncle Bryan welcomed Brayden David Dykstra into the world on May 28th at 721pm. Here’s some pictures of the process that took place.  They are in no particular order but the title of the picture should give you an idea… enjoy he’s a cute adorable peanut!

find a guy…

♥ find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep… wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU… The one who turns to his friends and says, thats her… ♥

I’m not like the girls that you’ve known, but I believe I’m worth coming home to.

back to you

May 15, 2010

We’ve all done it. And if we haven’t all done it, we’ve definitely thought about doing it.

If you’re thinking about going back to “The One That Got Away,” here’s some things to keep in mind:

  1. It’s only romantic the first time you go back.
  2. If you keep going back, then they are no longer “The One That Got Away” and instead become “The One You Tried To Ignore By Deleting All Of Their Contact Information, But During The Long Lonely Nights Dug Into Your Secret Contact Info Hiding Place And Called Out Of Desperation.”
  3. There’s a possibility that you are glorifying the relationship you had with the person because you feel bad for the single version of yourself.
  4. He can change but it’s highly unlikely that he actually has. Even if he pinky swears. With a cherry on top.
  5. No man is ever going to say “Yes. Of course my intentions are to hurt you, use you and then tell all my friends the intimate and slightly fabricated details of our relationship.” So when you explain to your girlfriends and defend the situation by saying, “Oh but he said he would never intentionally hurt me,” think a little more carefully. As a guy, with any sense of human interaction on the dating scale, the first line you learn is “I would never intentionally hurt you.” and just to clarify, that doesn’t mean he won’t hurt you.
  6. Going back just because you know he already bought your birthday present probably isn’t noble, but if you already know it’s something you really wanted, try to keep it on the DL. This DOES NOT mean telling all of your girlfriends that you’re back with him just for the gift, because it will get back to him, I repeat, it will get back to him. If you insist on being materialistic, you probably shouldn’t broadcast it. Then its no gorgeous quilted Chanel bag AND no boyfriend for you.
  7. A chocolate coma induced pity party is not reason enough to go back.
  8. You’d better be prepared to look hot all of the time. I’m just saying if you go back, you have to really prove yourself and that means no more boyfriend jeans and long cardigans. Comfort takes a backseat, but then again, so could you.
  9. You will actually have to learn to love the flaws that you weren’t too worried about before. Exhibit A, his favorite past time of clipping his toe nails while he watches Sports Center. Sexy.
  10. You will have to win over his family all over again.
  11. You may think you’ll have the upper hand because he seems so miserable and lonely with his scruffy, unkept look, but the minute he doesn’t have to beg for you back anymore, it’s back to his normal amount of confidence, if not more, because hey, he just won back a girl he lost.

Good luck and if it doesn’t work out, you know you’re always welcome in the single life!

*** a song all about jumping in and taking a risk for a chance at love ***

I packed a cooler and a change of clothes
Let’s jump and see how far it goes
You got my heart and your daddy’s boat
We got all night to make it float
We could sit on the shore
We could just be friends
Or we could jump in…

Whole world could change in a minute
Just one kiss could stop it’s spinning
We could think it through
But I don’t want to, if you don’t want to
We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came
With nothing to lose
But I don’t want to, if you don’t want to

I got your ring around my neck
And a couple of nights I don’t regret
You got a dream of a degree
And a shirt that smells like me
Yeah, we both got dreams
We could chase alone
Or we could make our own

Whole world could change in a minute
Just one kiss could stop it’s spinning
We could think it through
But I don’t want to, if you don’t want to
We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came
With nothing to lose
But I don’t want to, if you don’t want to

Never waste another day
Wondering what you threw away
Holding me, holding you
I don’t want to, if you don’t want to

We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came
With nothing to lose
But I don’t want to, if you don’t want to
Lord, I want to
I want you
