Big Week for the K's

Guess what today is?

6 months ago today I married my best friend!!!!
you know, the one that put up with me being a stage 5 clinger for a year before we started dating.  

We're halfway to 1 year..big deal people, big deal. 
I am so lucky to be married to Billy. He really is the best guy I know and I love being able to call him my husband. When I say best guy, I mean it. When Billy and I first started talking, I changed my name in his phone to "Best Girl". I would be lying if I said I just did it to be cute & different, I had intentions. I mean, so many other girls would call him all the time..I wanted to let them know he had a "Best girl". Take that girls..I thought. Well, much to my surprise, he kept me in his phone as Best girl and put up with the occasional teasing from his boys about it. He then put himself as "Best guy" in my phone. Only fair. To this day, we are still Best guy and Best girl to each other and I'm not sure if we will ever change it. 

I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I don't want to bore you all to the max...

Billy,
Thank you for being an amazing husband to me. Thank you for...taking Rocky out at night when I'm too tired to get off the couch. for making me laugh. for vacuuming all the time because you know I hate it. for putting up with my mood swings and constant need for dark chocolate and wine. for being you. for always telling me you love me even if we only leave each other for 5 minutes. for always believing in me and wanting the best for us. I love you more and more everyday.


Now that I got that out...
We have a pretty fun week ahead of us! 

We leave for Florida on Wednesday
&
Billy {and his twin sis} is turning 27 on Thursday!

 
I'm so excited to celebrate his birthday in Florida and take him out for a nice dinner on the beach. I have been casually checking stalking the weather like a mad woman and it looks beautiful - 80. 80. 80. I'm not sure if I remember what 80 degrees feels like. I may just be the happiest person in the world when I step off that plane and get the first glimpse of the beach.

This weekend we went to our local Borders because they are closing so they are having a big sale on all their books. I picked up some new reading material for our trip. 

I got these 2 books (for only $20 total):



and...



{can't wait to read this with the movie coming out soon!}

and...obviously I just had to get a mani/pedi too {my toes thank me} for all the cute sandals and flip flops I plan to be wearing. 

I went with one of my favorite colors...
Cajun Shrimp.


 
Now, tonight the plans are to hopefully get most of my packing done and errands ran that need to be run before we leave. You know how that goes.

Here's to hoping I can fit all my clothes/shoes/other random womanly neccessities into one bag. I am what you call an extreme OVERPACKER. 
 Once or maybeee multiple times...my bag weighed in at a whopping 49.3 lbs. Who does that?! It's not like I'm packing for a 3 week trip either. 
Maybe I'll try and cut it down a bit this time...
nah, maybe next time.
 
Have a great Monday!
