First off, Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️
This is one of the first Valentine’s Day that we have actually done something! I mean that in a way as, we never took it seriously. Yes, we would eat chocolate together and all of that good stuff, but we never took the time to actually celebrate and do something special. We thought since we’re married, we might as well celebrate and make it fun! I had to work yesterday, but when I came home I set everything up for this little surprise I was planning. It wasn’t anything really over the top, I just wanted to spend it at home with my husband, relaxing.
I had a vision in my mind, but I needed the supplies! A couple days ago when we went to Trader Joe’s, I grabbed some blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cupcakes, and macaroons. Originally, I wanted to just melt some chocolate in a bowl and have us dip the strawberries in there. But as I was cutting up the strawberries, I changed my mind. I thought all of the fruit was sweet enough and we had the macaroons, plus the cupcakes! I had a bottle of Sparkling Moscato so I set that up with two wine glasses on this tray. This whole thing was set up on the floor in the living room. I found these LED candles that I bought a while ago and knew exactly where I wanted to place them. I started putting them on the table under the TV and lit a really good smelling candle. I also added my tulips in the middle. It looked so pretty! I had these lanterns filled with lights so I put that out too on the floor next to the table. Next, I put a red blanket on the floor with some pillows and started setting up the food.
Once that was all done, I turned all the candles on and found a Spotify playlist, it was literally called “Valentine’s Day Tunes” or something like that. But it was perfect. I told Mirhad he can’t look until I’m done. So finally, it looked perfect. I started playing the romantic music and I called him out and made him close his eyes until he was standing in front of it all. He LOVED it! He just kept saying how it looks so nice and how this is so sweet! We sat down and started eating (of course) and just enjoyed each others company.
After we were finished eating, we started watching the Ted Bundy series which was super good (he’s so messed up) and we finished within a day! I recommend if you haven’t watched it already. Now I think all we will be doing this weekend is watching crime shows 😂
So yeah, that was our Valentine’s Day! Very chill and relaxing. I have some pictures of the thing I set up, with a video! 🙂
Woke up super sick and I don’t feel like doing anything. 🤧 My head is killing me, my nose is super runny, and my throat is hurting. So I’m just watching Narcos, never got to finishing it and it’s as good as it was the first week I started watching it.
Going to also work on my vision board today, hopefully I can get Mirhad to go print my pics out for me. Not sure if I want to do it online or if I want to print them out, cut them out, and glue it. Doing it online seems much less work, but figuring out what to do it on will be hard too. Eh, I’ll see!
Pretty much it, see ya.
It’s Friday!!!!!! As I’m typing the date in the heading I am realizing it’s literally the 26th of January, how is it February in 5 days?!?!!?!!? This month seriously flew by, only been in school for 3-4 weeks (3 weeks regular, 4 weeks grad). But wow…. February! Spring Break will be here before you know it and then graduation!!!!!!
I really want to go somewhere on vacation, honestly idc where as long as I see some mountains because I’ve been really missing them lately. I feel like I just need to get away from everything and everyone and just have some peace and quiet in the mountains. Maybe I will just dip one of these weekends and not say anything to anyone lol.
Have to finish a quiz today for marketing that he just put up today that’s due tomorrow (wtf thanks) and then I have a micro assignment I was handed Wednesday, so I’ll try to finish those two today while watching Netflix 🙂
I need to update my planner for the next week. Speaking of my planner, I bought stickers for it lol I’m so lame, but it helps a lot when things are colorful and also when I can cross stuff that I’ve done off 😀 Best planner I’ve ever bought @ Target, think I’m going to get the same one next year too, but I also saw something where you can design your own. I’m going to need it when I start work!
Tomorrow morning I’m going to register for my bridal shower with Mirhad and then probably work on the house.
Going to blog more later today, see ya!
Good morning & happy Thursday!!!!
It’s almost Friday and that means almost free from this school stuff!!!!! I really want to spend tomorrow laying in bed and finishing up some shows I haven’t watched in a while, but it’s going to be like 56 degrees tomorrow so I want to jog and spend some time outside. Maybe I’ll catch up on shows Friday night or something.. maybe in the morning I’ll wake up at 8 am and just start watching 😂😂 Anyways, I love Tuesdays and Thursdays because I don’t have to rush to get ready for school. I get to wake up around 9, drink coffee, and blog a little bit. I wish this was my full-time job lol.
Anyways, today I have to start my marketing assignment, like it needs to be done by today because I don’t want to work on any homework after today. I also need to buy bonds for investments class, so I need to do some research on which ones to buy bc I have no idea what I’m doing hahaha. I’m trying to think if that’s all the homework I have left…hopefully.
Yesterday my brother got some books he ordered from Chegg and there was a $25 Shutterfly “gift to shop”.
So I took it and went on the website and obviously I expected everything to be super expensive (it was) so I browsed around until I thought of a cool idea. I ended up making both of my parents coffee mugs, so each of their mugs has pictures with us (the kids) and then I wrote “We love you mama!” and “We love you babo!” and it looks adorable. Then apparently I also got a free magnet, so I put a bunch of our family pics on there and I also got a set of 24 address labels, so I added “Mirhad and Melisa” and our new address. Idk what I will use them for, but who cares they’re really cute. All of the items are supposed to be here by February 2-6 I think, so I’m excited to see how they will turn out. Praying the pictures aren’t super blurry bc I want them to drink out of the coffee mugs as soon as they get them 😂
Going to try to attempt my quiz from financial management again, got a 3/10 yesterday and even Mirhad helped me 😂 The way she set it up is that we have to take a quiz before she lectures about the material so obviously we don’t know anything, but the only good thing is that we can take it as many times as we want and take the higher score. So I’m going to try again before I leave for school and see what I get since I have until 1:30 to keep redoing them.
Woke up this morning and ate a nice breakfast. Finally back on track with the healthy diet, 8 days late but that’s ok!! After I ate my breakfast, I called the gas and electric company for new service at my house. One step closer to getting started!!!! 😀
Mirhad called me this morning to tell me why he overslept – because he was watching a show called End of the f**king world and he told me it was so good he finished the whole season last night. Given each episode is less than 20 minutes long with 8 episodes the first season so it makes sense to why he watched it all last night lol. So he told me to watch it all by the time he gets back from work! So that’s what I’m doing, just started the episode, we’ll see how this show is.
Today I plan on finishing this show and then watch Younger because I miss that show lol. Then I’m going to blog, hangout with Mirhad, and I don’t know what else. Maybe start that book today!! We’ll see where the day takes me 🙂
But yeah, it’s Monday, the start of a new week. I wrote my goals in the previous blog post, but my one goal this week for myself is to relax this week before school starts on Tuesday.
I think I am going to write my long term goals soon and do some research as well. Might turn it into a blog post?? 🙂
See ya later!
