The story continues...But with *PICS* ☺

(from left to right) 1st Row: We met at Saddle Ridge out in Parma at a mutual friends b*day, then talked on Myspace, exchanged phone numbers & then a few days later he picked me up to hang out.
2nd Row: Went to this great Italian restaurant nearby *PIZZAZZ* & while I was eating and he was drinking coffee we checked out one another's eyes... From there, we went to see HALLOWEEN & then a few days later he came over to my new place.
3rd Row: That's the "back" view of my apartment. Since I just moved in, Evil-E came along and went shopping with me so I could buy everything from a vaccumm to light bulbs :) and then his quiet "Church Boy" self came out and opened up about things and then I developed a crush on him. Who would have known? --> That a $hopping trip would result in some funny stories? *LOL*
4th Row: We've gone to Squire's Castle numerous times since we've been dating & VOILA! - still strong today :)!!!
OK - by now there's been far too much lovey dovey posts going on. And HOW MANY TIMES can we look at the same pic?
Onto a NEW SUBJECT :)!!!

Saturday Scavenger Shots #3 (ONE)

This week's word *ONE* was chosen by the *one* and only K_Sra. Over the weekends, I tend to take things slow and not go on the internet as much but I did stop by Evil-E's page and was shocked to see how he represented the number *ONE*. Awwwwwwwwwww, he is so cute when he shows his softer side :o) *blushes* and I know I definitely can't beat his creativity!!! Obviously, I know this isn't a competition but I'm not very good with words at times - and that's why I love adding pictures and videos to my posts. Anyways, enough blabbing and back to square *one* ;)! Evil-E is my #1!!!

Saturday Scavenger Shots #2 (Blue)

Although, I'm a tad bit late for Saturday's Scavenger Hunt, never fear... *Renee* is here :)! This week's word *BLUE* was chosen by the one and only Alien. Blue is one of my favorite colors. I have a blue rose tattoo on my upper right arm. Everybody who has seen it has asked the infamous question "Um.....Why is it blue?" And I simply say "Because it's my favorite color and I'm different." Anyways, enough rambling... And here's the story behind the pics. Below, is a bad pic of me (as I was saying Cheeeeeeeeeessseeee) that shows my tattoo. The one thing I regret is getting it on my arm. I wish I chose a spot that was more discreet.

Above are some items I can't live without!!! I am addicted to Calgon's Morning Glory body spray. I started wearing that in high school and even today (over 10 years later) it's my signature scent. Below is a color changing lamp (which is blue but kind of hard to tell by this pic) I have on my night-stand. Right next to it is a card from Evil-E. Every time I'm blue, I read it before bed to cheer me up.

Below is a picture I took of Evil-E, while we were at the beach (Mentor) two weeks ago. The sky was very blue that day :) and oh*so*pretty!

And last but not least, that painting of the blue rose ~> (please look to your right) was created by Evil-E, which he gave to me on my birthday. We just started dating and he knew how much I loved roses and glitter & with his creativity and wonderful heart, he came up with a beautiful blue rose along with some touching words :)! That is one flower that will last a lifetime & because of him, he turned my blue♥ heart back to red♥!

*Lights* Camera ◙ Action! Take 3...

Seems like the movie posts have been a big hit in blogger world :)~ so this week, I present to you comedies. We all could benefit from a good laugh or two :) he hee, and like the old saying (that is very true)~ "Laughter is the best medicine." Here are some of my favorite comedies.



This clip is called *WHO IS YOUR DADDY AND WHAT DOES HE DO? LOL - the last few kids are funny!*

"LIFE STINKS" (1991)
A rich businessman makes a bet he can survive on the streets of a rough Los Angeles neighborhood for 30 days completely penniless. During his stay he discovers another side of life and falls in love with with a homeless woman. Although the plot summary doesn't seem funny, there's one scene in this movie that always cracks me up.

"AMERICAN PIE" (The original)

What are your favorite comedies?

*Winter* S.P.R.I.N.G☂, Summer ☀, or Fall?

Ahhhhh ~ Summer is coming close to an end :( and soon *fall* will be upon us. Fall happens to be my favorite season ☺! I ♥ when the weather is just right. Not too hot, but not too cold. I was born in October and have always been a fall baby. I love taking walks in the park during this time of year, breathing in the crisp, cool autumn air, wearing jeans and a hoodie (ah, my favorite) without feeling like a freak since I even dress like that at times in the summer and I love Halloween. I love the ~eeriness this season brings. I'm going to do a twist and do my 1st poll on here. (Thanks to Eric and his polls, they are now in my head). What is your favorite season? Please list from most favorite to least favorite. A.) Winter B.)Spring C.)Summer D.)Fall

I'll start off.

I HATE WINTER beyond belief. I get the winter blues... It's too cold and when it gets dark by 4:00 in the afternoon, that brings me down.
