Dear Me: Another Future Me Email✉

I received another past email from May 20, 2016 that I wrote to myself. I thought I’d share it with you and discuss the contents and how weird it is to consult without myself and remember when I was typing it out and how I felt then and how I feel now.

Dear FutureMe,
Hey, you finally graduated college and your niece will soon be born. Yay!
You are trying to find a career and you don’t think you will meet THE guy any time soon. After what happened with…well you know. I feel stupid, but you definitely don’t regret the breakup. I hope by this time next year, you will have your own place, a decent paying job and perhaps even a someone who loves you. Don’t feel too bad if you haven’t found him yet. Concentrating on yourself is always a good thing. 

I love being you. Remember that.

Now, some back story in case you are confused. I ended my 2 year relationship at the end of 2015. It wasn’t healthy and I had to end things for my sake and his. 2016 began with a lot of heartache but I managed to graduate, find a job and myself. It turned into a very strong year for me, I had to learn who I was again and be a person I was proud to be.

I may not have my own place, but I’m slowly saving up for my own car now that I have to share my current car with my sister. I want my own. It might take a bit, but I’ll eventually get there. I also mention in my email about how it’s ok if I have yet to find THE guy. To my surprise, towards the end of 2016, I managed to find someone special. My love for him grows every day and I look forward to spending as much time with him as I can. Last weekend we went into the Lego Store and created these minifigs….loosely based on ourselves. I have so much fun with him.

I always get excited whenever I get an email from my past self. This email was written in a point in my life where I had to sort of start all over. Starting over is sometimes the best thing you can do.

Meeting His Parents

I was so nervous, but I finally had the chance to meet Matt’s parents a couple weekends ago. Matt, calm as usual, kept telling me I had nothing to worry about. And he was right, I had nothing to worry about. They all made me feel very welcomed.

I went with Matt to pick up his parents from the airport.( First time near an airport) That’s right, I’ve never been on a plan. Hopefully, I’ll change that this year. Anyway, we waited for them and then they came and greeted me with open arms. We had dinner at Star Pizza and just talked and laughed. They were so great and reminded me of my parents. His dad would make some jokes, again, reminding me of my own dad. Then we ended the night with some ice cream ( I had Cream Soda- and I’ve been craving it ever since).

The next morning, I drove to Matt’s place where the four of us walked to Biscuit Junkie for breakfast. I had avocado on poached eggs and biscuits. It was pretty yummy. And from there we headed off to Galveston to meet up with more of his family. I met his uncle and cousins, and his grandparents. Again, I was welcomed with open arms and was treated as part of the family. It was lovely. His uncle rented a house on the water and it was gorgeous. I haven’t been to Galveston in years so I was quite surprised. I was reminded that Moody Gardens is in Galveston and now it’s definitely on my list of things to do this year. I think the last time I visited was during a school field trip back in the 8th grade…if I remember correctly. Disney World is still a huge thing I would like to do this year, I’m told before Christmas is the best time to go, and Matt just so happens to be from Florida so a visit there and a visit to his parents would be lovely. I’m just so happy that meeting them went well. It’s interesting to meet the people responsible for the person I love. He resembles both parents, having more of his mother’s features with a dash of his father’s and his added mannerisms. But Matt is much more mellow than his father. But Matt is pretty much more mellow than anyone really.  I haven’t had a chance to meet his younger brother yet, but hopefully I’ll be able to do so soon.

When we finally go to the beach house, we talked and colored with his cousins, then ate some burgers and just enjoyed the view on the water. We played some ping pong, and watched a movie, and then his father wanted to take photos of the sunset. We said our goodbyes and made plans to have dinner the next night. I also offered them museum tickets since they were coming into Houston for the day. We had dinner at Goode Company’s BBQ, and then I suggested we walk around Rice Village so his cousins could do some shopping while his parent’s joined us at Half Price. We later all met up at this crepe shop and had coffee and dessert. It was a great evening and I’m so glad that he introduced me to them. I look forward to spending time with them again.

I hope you are having a great week, and I hope your weekend is filled with fun. If you’re worrying about something, my advice to you is, worry not. Don’t over worry and just do your best in whatever it is. You’re probably like me and worrying for no reason. Just smile, eat some yummy food and blog on. <3

~Anime Matsuri 2017~ Rogue and Gambit

My fringe extension was so hard to keep on my head. I kept laughing and messing with it and the wind wasn’t much help either. I might op for an actual Rogue wig next time, who knows? This was supposed to be casual though.

I normally have a fringe, it wasn’t really behaving. It kept getting in the way of the extension and making it slip. But it’s probably because I didn’t put it on properly. I still had a lot of fun walking around with Matt and we actually got recognized by several people. Two people even asked to take our photo. I wish I had given them my email so I would have had more photos of Matt and me in our outfits. I only have two. -.- Luckily, a friend came up to say hi and I asked him if he could take a photo of us. (Thanks Anthony!)

One of my favorite things though was when I caught eyes from other X-Men cosplayers. They would nod and smile, making me feel as though we were really connected or something. Nice feeling. I didn’t take photos of any other cosplayers. -.- I should have and I don’t know why I didn’t. I was too busy worrying about my fringe. *I know...self absorbed* But I still had a lot of fun. Matt makes things even more wonderful. <3

Hope you all had a great weekend! I also met Matt’s family this weekend so I’ll post about that later this week. Just know…his family is absolutely wonderful.

Thanks for reading.

Update: Rogue and Gambit

And it continues! Anime Matsuri is THIS weekend! I’m nervous and excited and ready to put the finishing touches on my casual cosplay. 

I finally got my gloves! I also have no idea how to do my hair, the white hair extensions I bought aren’t exactly the best quality and I have no idea how to curl synthetic hair without using heat. I’m trying not to stress too much about it though. It’s my interpretation of the character in a casual way so I shouldn’t worry too much, however I did purchased a fringe piece.  I just want to make sure the hair doesn’t look odd, I definitely don’t want to look like a skunk. I didn’t want to get an actual Rogue wig…maybe next time I will. If we take photos though, I might go in and change the hair color for fun…just to see. Aside from those factors, I still have to do my shirt embellishments and then I’m ready!

Favorites: Take a Moment

   Take a moment and breathe.

I’ve always considered myself a happy person, happy with the little things and grateful for the huge things. For this entry, I just wanted breathe in everything that has made me happy. Shows, movies, people… the little things and whatnot. With our hectic day to day life stuff, sometimes we forget how great those things are. Life changes all the time and I don’t want to take anything for granted.

… continue reading this entry.

Recently…

I introduced Matt to my parent’s. I know, some might consider 5 months of dating too soon, but I wanted my parents to meet him. He’s all of the above and so much more. ❤

My dad is a very hyper person, especially when he is having a good time.  If he likes a person, then he continues on with his hyper attitude and partners it with his mile-a-minute-talking. Something he and I have in common. Sadly, if he does not like a person then he remains quiet. Which is usually unheard of. He also met my 9 month old niece. She was so shy and it was so adorable. She clung to my shirt and just kept eyeing him. He would hold out his hand to her and she would reach for him then take her hand back. She let him hold her for a second, I guess she was just trying to figure him out.

Now, I was not worried about Matt meeting my family. He’s a great conversationalist, even though he feels as though he is awkward. I think, provided the people around him are actively including him, then he has no problem. Now he’ll be invited to family gatherings and weekend trips to my parent’s. He definitely made an impression. As for Matt’s parents, they live in Florida but will be visiting Texas next month. I’ll get a chance to meet them during their visit and I hope they like me, I have some concerns that I’d rather not type out let alone say out loud. -.- Just some run of the mill jealousy and nervousness.

Meeting the parents is a serious matter. But this is morphing into a serious relationship, and even though I have introduced two other boyfriends beforehand but I’m not going to let past relationships haunt my new one.

Does the idea of meeting the parents make you nervous, I’d love to hear your thoughts. That’s all for now.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Valentines♥

IMG_20170215_182441_587

Valentine’s Day: a day deemed the most important day to show your significant other that you love them.

False.

This shouldn’t be the only day you show your loved ones that you love them. This also shouldn’t only be a day for couples, it’s a day for everyone to show their love. My mother surprised me with a card, she was like a ninja and hid it in my room the last time she came to visit me. I’ve been saying this a lot, but love comes in so many different forms so why shouldn’t this day, along with every other day, be a day you show love?

Yes, I am in a relationship, but I don’t usually make a huge deal in doing the typical couple-Valentiney-things. I spent a lovely evening with the boyfriend, we ate dinner, dessert- he made me a strawberry cake- and watched Avatar. I loved it. I love him. He makes every day special because loving someone isn’t something that can be expressed once in awhile. It’s not something that is only shown in order to make a pretty instagram photo. It’s something that isn’t always seen but you feel it. I feel loved every time Matt looks my way, when my siblings tease me about something, when my mother answers the phone when I call, or when my dad saves the day when there’s a storm brewing. I am indeed lucky. And I bet, if you took the time to see all that is around you, you’ll feel the love too.

So please, treat this day like any other day, don’t let the candies and flowers make you feel as though you don’t matter. Relationships are great, but loving yourself is just as great. I hope you spent this day with loved ones, and I hope you spoiled yourself because you deserve it.

That was my 2 cents on this Hallmark Holiday.

Thanks for reading.

Mornings with You 💕

morningswithyou

The moments before I fall asleep I snuggle against your back, wrapping my arm around you and I can easily fall asleep with you beside me.

The moments before I’m fully awake, I can feel you kiss my cheek. I can feel you touch my hand.  My vision blurred, streaks of light peeking in through the blinds while purrs and high pitched meows beckon us to wake up.  I can feel myself wanting to say good morning yet I want to linger in your arms just a bit longer before I wake up. 

 

A Trip with You 💕

As a Christmas gift, Matt gave me a weekend trip to Austin. I was so excited for this trip, 1. Because I was going with Matt <3 and 2. I haven’t had the opportunity to travel much so packing for a trip and going on said trip had me all excited.

I might have taken things a bit far when it came to packing for this trip, but in my mind, I didn’t want to forget something that I might need. I had plan on filming things so I could create a travel vlog, however, my camera remained in it’s case the entire trip. -.- I was sick for the majority of the trip, Matt had caught a cold the week before last so I knew I’d also catch whatever it was he had. Saturday was the worse, and I know what you’re thinking…“Kim! Why didn’t you just reschedule?!” I didn’t want to! I was looking forward to it, and I had already cleared it with work. Had I been seriously ill, then yes I would have rescheduled. But I was fine! I was feeling much better by Sunday, but I didn’t let the blah cold prevent me from having fun during the weekend. Matt was so attentive and just all around amazing. He even let me go to Modcloth to try on clothes, it was a fit store so you try on the clothes and then they order and ship it to your house. I wish it were an actual department store but it was still lovely to visit. I may not have any video to show but here is a collection of photos, which is just as good.

Matt
I wish I had taken more photos while on this trip but sometimes I just wanted to enjoy the moment.  It was a wonderful trip and we’re already wanting to figure out where we will go for our next trip. I’m also hoping not to be sick whenever we do go on another trip. To Matt: This trip was wonderful, I enjoyed every moment of it and can’t wait to travel with you to other places. 💕

The travel spark has been ignited and I’m looking forward to taking more trips this year. Perhaps even board an airplane? 🙂 Do you over pack for trips or have you figured out a happy medium? And do you have any fun trips planned this year?

Weekends with You 💕

This past weekend was wonderful.

For the three day weekend, I spent it over at Matt’s. Now, this isn’t the first time but I’m typically a homebody and enjoy being lazy, watching movies,  or knitting…you get it. But my weekends with him are always just so wonderful. So here’s a breakdown on our weekend:

  • Friday: We went to a pre release for the new Magic cards at Asgard Games, ran into some friends there and I played one round. I’m not really that great at the game, but it’s fun.
  • Saturday: We hung out with Matt’s friends for a bit, and enjoyed some yummy food and dessert. We also started watching the Netflix Original: A Series of Unfortunate Events. Loved the books, so I was looking forward to reading the books.
  • Sunday: We woke up early, but didn’t really do anything until mid day. (Matt was also starting to get sick…which surprise surprise, I now have what he had/has)He was feeling up for getting out of the apartment so we decided to go to The Mad Potter to do some painting. He painted a mug and I painted a soup bowl. I forgot to take any before photos though. Very unlike me. Sadly, we have to wait until next week to pick up our master pieces because we won’t be here on Friday. I’m excited to see how they turn out. I might have put too much pressure on it, but luckily Matt was there to remind me that this was for fun. And it was a lot fun, when I suggested we go paint mugs, I didn’t think he would actually go with it.  Not because he wouldn’t want to, but because it was just so spur of the moment. And because of that we sort of ran out of time but I’m excited to see how they came out. Matt painted a mug, splitting it down the middle, one side with his white kitty Eve and the other side with his black kitty Marco. It’s pretty adorable. and I painted a mint bowl with white orchids. After that we went to Barnes and Noble where we picked up two new Magic decks and a copy of Stardust by  Neil Gaiman. We ended our night out with dinner at Sushi Choo Choo.
  • Monday: Matt woke up feeling really bad, so I went and got him some medicine and cooked him some eggs. We spent the day watching movies and didn’t leave the apartment at all. We had our lunch and dinner delivered to us via Ubereats. Amazing! I’ve never used Uber before, but using it to bring food? So convenient and totally helps me maintain my hermit like behavior. The night ended with some reading and cuddles.

Such a great weekend, I hope my cold doesn’t last too long though. We have another wonderful weekend planned and I don’t want my boogers to ruin that. We have a trip planned, more on that next time. 🙂 How was your weekend?

💚 Thanks for reading 💚
