The Perfect Morning

The first thing I want to do in the morning is soak in a wonderfully scalding, bubbly bath with… Candles that smell like honeysuckle, or maybe gardenia all around the room. I want to sip on a glass of my favorite moscato (which has an incredibly Italian name that I can remember how to spell at the moment), while I squeezed my eyes closed and listen to the Civil Wars, or other similar mellow indie music.

I want to relax. I want reflect on the day I’m about to have, plan it all out in my head so I feel like I’m in control. That’s important to me, being in control. It seems like everything has been crazy lately and I’m just exhausted. I don’t micromanage, that’s a promise, but I really do enjoy having a plan and doing my very best to stick to it.

I want to… Sit on my hugely comfortable couch in an incredibly soft sweater and drink an enormous mug of overly-sugar Earl Grey tea (instead of coffee, I’m a tea kind of lady). I want to spend my early morning watching a terrible romantic drama/comedy on Netflix instead of being productive. I swear, by 11 AM, I’ll be doing my “chores”, but… Mornings are for enjoying sunshine, those last couple of minutes on the cool side of the pillow before you get out of bed, and those comfortable “I’m so glad I woke up beside you” hugs.

This entire… Gaggle of nonsense was birthed by a plate of cantaloupe that I had as a snack at 1 AM. I don’t necessarily know why. I was also watching this cute little romantic comedy called One Small Hitch. I would recommend it to any lonely, or ridiculously happy-in-their-relationship female.

It is now 2 AM though, my movie has ended and I’ve turned on Roseanne reruns. I feel like it’s probably time to try and sleep. I’ve tried before. It didn’t work then, probably won’t work now, but I’ll try anyway.

Goodnight, all!

Some of Us Are Looking at the Stars

So, I lied just a bit, I guess I do have a bit more to say today.

I’m sitting in my bed, watching the 1991 movie, “The Butcher’s Wife”, starring Jeff Daniels and a very blonde Demi Moore. The blonde really works for her, by the way.

Anyway, the movie starts with Demi Moore living on an island off the coast of the Carolinas, so somewhere off the southern part of the east coast.

Blah, blah, blah, none of that is important. The movie isn’t the point in the post, the point is that I decided to tell you all about a vision I have for myself.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am rather afraid of the ocean. I don’t like the idea of not really know what’s ACTUALLY down there. I mean, not all of it has been completely discovered. I guess it’s mostly the whole “unknown” thing that scares me.

Regardless of that, I have always gotten this specific scene stuck in my head: A house on the beach, or on some kind of island, like where the witches live in the movie “Practical Magic” (Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, and even Stockard Channing…). Somewhere that has an actual farmer’s market with locally grown produce, not stuff flown in from Mexico.

If I’m so afraid of the ocean, why in the world do I keep thinking I’m supposed to live right by the sea?

Maybe I’m supposed to write that into a book. Honestly, that might be exactly why it’s caught up in my brain.

Talking about moving to Tennessee with Jarrett after the whole Marine Corps thing sounds equally as wonderful, since Chattanooga has the farmer’s market on Sundays, places to hike and camp, bars/pubs (since we both quite enjoy the fire water), and BEAUTIFUL houses (not going to lie, I totally looked into the housing market there. Jarrett knows this, of course.) that really aren’t that expensive. Mind you, I haven’t been there yet, but he’s spent plenty of vacation time there since he was about fourteen. He’s swears up and down that I’ll love it, that I’ll never want to leave. We’re going there for a week in August and I’m stupidly excited.

I’m hoping that since the two major military bases in the country are in California and North Carolina, I’ll end up somewhere close to a beach and I can find out if all these ideas have any kind of merit. I’ve only ever been to the beach once (unless you count just stopping by on the way to Disney World when I was about six…) when I was sixteen. It was Orange Beach on the Florida/Alabama state line and it just seemed to be… Gray. Everything was gray and since I don’t eat seafood, I pretty much lived off of snack foods and grilled chicken salad, no matter what restaurant we went to. I’d like to have a better experience with a beach, like… My family’s timeshare includes Hawaii and Aruba, as well as many other very nice beaches. I’d very much so like to visit one of those, mostly Hawaii.

We’ll see what I can plan, when we’re not broke. I don’t intend on spending every single leave he ever gets in Arkansas, after all. I am DETERMINED to take real vacations, for us to spend time together, just the two of us, you know? I’m super family-oriented, but I’m also rather Jarrett-oriented, haha.

I figured that I’ve spouted off enough nonsense on this one. I hope this one was a bit more entertaining.

Here’s a quote from “The Butcher’s Wife” that I quite enjoyed.

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

Fly, Bella : Updated

If you’re an actual follower, which I can’t really expect many to be, really, I’m sure that you noticed that I   changed a few things around Fly, Bella. Mainly the theme, of course. I wanted things to be a bit more… Colorful around here. Being a bit hippie-ish and the daughter of an elementary art teacher, I was always surrounded by color, at least in my own mind and personal wardrobe.

Besides the theme, I added links to where you can find me at other points of social media: Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Maybe you’ll  find some of those super interesting. Who knows? You’ll find those to the left of the page, under the “Find Me” portion, directly under my email address. Right underneath “Find Me”, you’ll see my four most recent Instagram photos, that way you can see into a bit of my personal world. If you skip down a bit more, you’ll see a spiffy little box that’s currently counting down to Jarrett and mine’s six month “anniversary”. To be honest, I couldn’t think of anything else to count down to at the moment. Our trip to Tennessee is after our “anniversary” (and I’m not 100% on the dates for that trip…), so I figured that would fit just fine.

I guess those are the only real changes around here. Now, I edited my “About Me” page a week or so ago, then changed some junk on the “Find Me” page yesterday, but mostly, just took stuff off.

There really isn’t much else to discuss at the present time. I mean, Jurassic World was really good last night. Jarrett loved it and the surprise at the end was pretty cool, so nothing negative to say there at all, but… That’s about it.

I hope you all have a great rest of your afternoon! Thanks so much for reading all of my pointless junk!

Happy Birthday, Kole!

Today is literally day nine of being stupidly sick. Luckily, the migraine is nearly gone, but the stomach pain? No. Getting sick? No. And now, I feel like someone beat me with a baseball bat. I am SO sore. I feel like I’ve had the flu for a month. Worst part? Doctors seem to be nonexistent right now and I hate to be dramatic enough to go to the ER. It’s damn near to that point though, I’m so tired of being… Tired.

Most importantly though, today is my handsome nephew’s third birthday 😀 I simply cannot believe that it  has already been three years since I held him for the first time. He used to be so little and adorable, now he’s HUGE and so funny and he likes fried pickles as much as I do.

This picture is from just about a week ago, when he won a sheep-riding contest at a rodeo. Mind you remember that my sister and brother-in-law live in Texas and think that’s the coolest thing. Me? Not so much, really.

Also, tonight is the premier of Jurassic World (the movie, obviously) and we’re going to the 8:15 PM show  at the local theater. Jarrett is ridiculously excited for it. He was one of those guys that grew up with Jurassic Park t-shirts, plastic dinosaurs all over the place, and a love for ancient stuff. I’m happy to go watch it with him just because he’s looking forward to it so much.

Speaking of movies and such, I’d just like to say that Netflix is annoying the heck out of me as of late. I can’t seem to ever find a single stinkin’ thing to watch, nothing is very entertaining, and I get tired of it acting like I like insipid movies about sorority girls because I watched Legally Blonde one time. Currently, I’m watching James and the Giant Peach. Of course, this isn’t one of the annoying things on Netflix. I grew up watching this movie and it’s one of my favorites, for sure. Can you imagine how GREAT that peach smelled, being that big? I think I’d pass out from pure pleasure. Every single time we walk by the boxes of peaches in the grocery store, Jarrett and I pause to just inhale for a minute or two. I love that smell so much. There might not be anything better at all.

I guess I’ll go ahead and end this here. It’s pretty much all drivel anyway. Nothing of real importance. I’ll try to find something awesome to write about next time, but for now, I bid you adieu!
