watching, learning, considering, needing, changing

I'm currently watching a food show on Travel channel. They're showing so many delicious and yummy looking sandwiches. I'm a foodie and I watch a lot of cooking/food shows. Plus, I do want to go to culinary school next year. I can't wait; food is my life! 

I'm currently loving the autumn. My favorite holiday, Halloween, is coming up and it's pumpkin-cozy-comfort food season. All those yummy smelling fragrances, beautiful colors, cinnamon, clover, nutmeg, Thanksgiving, scary movies, cardigans, etc. I love autumn! Since, I live in NY I practically live in jeans, boots, sweaters, and jackets. We only get like 3-4 months of warm weather and then it's cool weather the rest of the year. 

I'm currently considering going to culinary school earlier than planned. Also, I'm considering getting a small tattoo.  

I'm currently learning to loosen up more. I'm very serious and rigid.I try to loosen up and fun when I'm out but it's difficult for me. 

I'm currently needing sleep, a job, freedom from my parents house, a vacation, new clothes, and more books. 

I'm currently changing my wardrobe from summer clothes to fall/winter.

Me In A Nutshell

Hello there! I'm Courtney, a 23 year old who's engaged. I'll be marrying the love of my life in 2016. I turn another year older every July 2. I live in NYC and I'm currently working on getting a better paying job and my first apartment with my fiance Jose. I graduated from college in May 2013 and I'm getting my certification in event and wedding planning. Next, I'm going on to culinary school in 2015. I'm an only child or as I used to say when I was younger, a lonely child. I love music, crafting, reading, cooking, baking, pinterest, Halloween and Christmas, the summer and fall, decorating, and writing. 

I'm also a hippie, an artist, an observer, and a free/new age thinker. I'm spiritual, meaning I don't follow a religion and I have my own beliefs. I believe in foraging and freeganism and I'm not keen on consumerism. If I can get something for free, I'll grab it and run. I believe politics and organized religion are a bunch of B.S. I don't follow the crowd and I create my beliefs. I'm a simple person. I have a hippie and boho style. I don't really follow trends or wear the latest stuff. I don't wear makeup or fancy jewelry. I like to wear comfortable clothing. That's my style; hippie, boho, comfortable clothing. 

That's me in a nutshell! 

Oh, and I'm a Jamberry Nails ccnsulstant (post coming soon). Check my website out here.

falling, wearing, making, smiling, learning

I'm currently falling behind on everything; blog posts, crafts, my etsy shop, letter writing, etc. You name it, I've fallen behind on it. I have to admit, I've gotten lazy ever since last May when I graduated college. It's like my normal routine and my brain just shut off and all I want to do is relax and sit around. When will I snap out of it?

I'm currently wearing lounge shorts and a t-shirt. Oh, and a boho bracelet. 

I'm currently making lunch more often for my fiance and I. The other day I made baked sweet and sour chicken. It was so fudging good.And yesterday I made BBQ chicken cornbread pie. It was really good. 

I'm currently smiling at my fiance's jokes. He makes me laugh all the time! 

I'm currently learning that life is short; enjoy it and live freely. I'm also learning how to network and market my Jamberry Nails business.

craving, cleaning, daydreaming, growing, reading 

I'm currently craving food of all sorts. This year all I want to do is eat. My love of food has grown immensely, which I guess is because I'm going out more with Jose, so I'm trying new foods. Plus, I want to go to culinary school and I've been cooking more.  

I'm currently cleaning my room....slowly. Ok, I admit I haven't kept up with it and I also admit I'm not the best cleaner. But I do it eventually, so that counts right? 

I'm currently daydreaming of autumn! I can't wait for the crisp weather, the leaves changing, the pumpkins, the decor, Halloween, and everything in between. It's funny, back in May and June, I was raving about how I couldn't wait for the summer. I love both seasons, so I'm happy until December. 

I'm currently growing sunflowers, trying to grow tomatoes, strawberries, and an avocado tree. 

I'm currently reading Alphabet Weekends by Elizabeth Noble. It's such a good book! At first I was iffy on it, but I continued it and it's turning out to be really good. It's about 3 different couples; Natalie and Tom, who play a game where they do these different activities that start with the each letter of the alphabet. Lucy and Patrick; Patrick loses his job and Lucy gets fed up with him and starts cheating on him and Anna and Nicholas, Natalie's parents. Anna has depression and Nicholas gets a stroke. I definitely recommend it! Maybe I should start a book series on here? 

I know I've been quiet, I honestly try to keep up with this blog nowadays, but truthfully I have no motivation and I get distracted really easily. Like, I'll start one project, put it down, start something new, and never finish the first one.

Finish These Sentences


When I open the fridge, I always hope I find... something sweet, a snack, and something for lunch. 

My favorite article of clothing is... my corgi shirt. I wear it a lot! 

Last week I was really pissed when...
I don't really remember. I'm sure I was pissed off, but I'm so laid back, I forget about those moments. 

One thing nobody understands about me is... I'm a routine person. If it's out of my routine, I freak out, I panic, and I won't relax until everything is back to the way it was. 

One thing I don't understand is... Oh god, I could go on and on with this one. I don't understand men's mentality, how you can forget your child in the back set of a hot car, math, and tons more. 

The world would be a better place if... there was peace, everyone got along, and everything was FREE. 

If I had a million dollars, I'd... buy a house, a car, new clothes, go on vacation, get married to my fiance, donate some money, and quit my job! 

If I knew I'd die next week, this week I'd.... get married to the love of my life, travel the world, and learn everything I possibly could. 

If I could change one thing about myself, it would be... my weight. I want to be skinnier; I'm tired of being fat. 

Something that can always make me happy is... my fiance, Jose. Oh, and food. Food always makes me happy. 

Something I'll never blog about is... I'm pretty open on here, so nothing's off limits. Ok, I lied; since this is a family friendly blog, talking about my sex life is off limits. It's private and it's going to stay that way. 

If I could go anywhere I would go...
to Europe. More specifically, Ireland, England, Southern Italy, Poland, Germany, and Sweden. Mainly Ireland and England though. 

If I were an animal I would be a ... Elephant? I'm not quite sure, haven't given it much thought.  

A job I've always wanted is... I've always wanted to be an actress, but I have stage fright. 

My idea of a perfect day is...
a WHOLE day (night and day) with my fiance. Since we don't live together at the moment, that'd be perfect. Go to a hotel, stay in with him, order room service, watch TV, cuddle, and do other couple things ;)
