1. my family (parents and two sisters) now reside in Canada. i miss them like crazy and refuse to drive past our old home because i did once the other day and it made me cry :(

2. I'M ENGAGED! this is the best news because it's what's making me so dang happy this past week. we've been engaged since last Monday, i can't believe it's been a whole week! he is my best friend and seriously i've never been more happy with life. we're getting married May 3rd and i caaaaaaaaaaaaaan't wait.
 i feel like the luckiest girl alive, because i am. i'm so stoked to be a part of the Carlson family too, they are the coolest. and here's the ring!
i've got lots of pictures and videos too from that day (most of them taken without me knowing that he would be asking me to marry him an hour later) which is awesome cause i've got that special day documented pretty well :) i was completely surprised which made it so fun! i love him.

and 3. MLKJR Day Eve did happen this year (4th year runnin) we take that day very seriously if you didn't know.
just two noobs enjoying their favorite holiday. we really are the weirdest though...whatevz! and yes we are wearing the same shirt (not planned) haha.
that girl leaves in a month! noooooooooooo! i'm going to miss her like crazy.



so i know this movie looks really creepy and stuff, but you should go see it. it's hilarious, i was laughing the whole time and still am. and it has tons of good music which is always a good thing.

also, SPOILER, who else is way ticked off about season 3 of Downton Abbey?? i mean really, did my two favorite people have to die, and in the same season, too? gay.
