{most memorable moments}

our homecoming football game – we were down by five with 11 seconds to go.  we then scored a touchdown and the extra point to win the game.  it was unbelievable and unexpected.  i kept saying over and over, “that was amazing”.  and it was.

watching my friend kat open her bday presents.  i’m a pretty good gift giver if i do say so myself.  just kidding.  i just really like giving gifts that i know people will appreciate.  (btw, christmas is less than three months away!!)

moving on and back into full on singleness…and being okay with it.

a five hour happy hour with my work friends that turned into a heartfelt confession session.

ordering my new iPhone 6.  i wasn’t planning on doing it so soon, but my 5 is slowly dying and the apple care lady said it would cost me about the same to buy a new one as to send mine in to get fixed.  you don’t have to twist my arm, lady. i’ll order a new one.  🙂  i still have a few weeks before i get it, but it’ll be nice to have a phone that actually works correctly.
