A Very Special Birthday

I very clearly remember locking myself in a high school bathroom stall and muffling my tears as I chanting “no one will ever love me” over and over again in my head. Boy, was I wrong. Terribly wrong. Fast forward some 15 years later (that was scary to type), and I can’t possibly fathom why this particularly amazing man loves me. Not only loves me, but thinks I am one of the most amazing people he has ever met. Just looking at me makes him smile. I have no idea what sorcery I unknowingly pointed his way, but I am thankful every day that it worked.

Happy birthday, Agustin Sanchez. You are not only my best friend, my husband and my partner in crime, but you are also my hero and inspiration. You are the reason I laugh and smile with such ease. You are my sanity. You are my happy place. You never stop surprising me, and I know you never will.

Magical Moments Monday

First off, today is especially magical because it is my hubs’ birthday! He has proved to be my rock as well as my happy place this year – I’m pretty sure I’d be lost without him. Plus, I am especially proud of him for the extreme growth he has displayed – he inspires me every day with his creativity and drive. I love you, monkey. Always & forever.

As far as the rest of the magic, here goes:

x. getting trip goodies in the mail
x. making some great connections
x. new books to read
x. have I mentioned our vacation is only ONE WEEK AWAY???
x. new favorite Essie shade: jazz
x. perfecting my Katniss Everdeen costume
x. I’m a redhead again!
x. still drives me wild that one of my favorite bands loves me back.
x. driving with the windows down
x. sunshine: something we had not seen in about a week!
x. spending much needed time with family
x. walking around South Beach on a gorgeous day
x. the Once Upon A Time pilot – in Damon Lindelof I trust

Weekend Highlights

Saturday we spent the night celebrating my glorious hubby’s birthday party with our closest friends at home. I think it was a complete success and everyone seemed to have a very good time. A very good time. Such a good time, in fact, that I spent the majority of my Sunday morning cleaning up after the mess. But it was completely worth it. We got to spend time with some of our favorite people and there really is nothing better than seeing the love of your life enjoying his special day. I love you honeycakes and hope this year is even better than the last! <3

Because of the festivities, I couldn’t attend the Vampire Diaries Tour in South Miami with Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, but a couple of my buddies did and shared their experiences! You can read all about them here and here. Sounds like it was a great time filled with many a smoldering look and flirtatious winks.

And next weekend brings even more fun: it’s Halloween!!!!
I have an elaborate costume party to attend on Saturday night and then plan on going trick or treating with my nephew Sunday. What plans do you guys have for the holiday?

Lovable Friday: Augi Edition

I decided to forgo the usual Lovable Friday lineup to feature my hubs. His birthday is Sunday and I wanted to show him a little blog love. After all, who doesn’t appreciate a little Internet lovin’?

At this point, I can’t imagine my life without one Agustin Sanchez. We have been together as a unit for 9 years, and married for almost 3. We are almost too alike – in fact, people used to tell me our relationship wouldn’t work out because we were basically the same person. Well, we sure did prove them wrong. But somehow, despite having so much in common, we are still two very distinct people. I’m all about unicorns, rainbows and glitter – he is all about cynicism, guitars and brooding. And it works. Well.

Weekend Highlights: Valentine’s Day Edition


I’m sorry this post came so late – we had a really busy (but wonderful) weekend and we didn’t have today off like the majority of you lucky people! Our Valentine’s Day was amazing though. Completely low-key in traditional Sanchez style, but very romantic and special.
