Random|| Picture Update.

Hey!

I have a random picture update for you guys. Basically just what’s going on in my life, what I’ve done recently, what I’ve taken pictures of recently, etc., but really just a ton of pictures of my furbabies. Kidding…half kidding… πŸ˜› There’s others too, haha.

The hubby and I stumbled upon a brewery (Hollywood Brewing Co) that was on the beach, so we had to check it out! Amazing beer and food! I got the sliders and they were so good. I also got a mango IPA and a Limon Lager. Loved them both! I don’t remember the first beer the hubby got, but his second one he got the Limon one too. Hands down though, the fries stole the show. SO AMAZING! We sat outside and you can see in the last picture the beach right across from us.

Speaking of the beach and food…we ate at this place another time called Taco Beach Shack and OMG it was amazing. I forgot my ID at home, so I couldn’t drink that day, sadly. BUT the tacos were so damn good. I need to go back ASAP! Maybe I can talk to hubby into going this weekend, because damn I need these tacos again.

Here are some other random pictures from the beach from the last two times that we’ve gone. I love taking pictures at the beach. There’s always neat things. I need to go back again ASAP. I literally live like two miles away. It’s even walking distance.

A random picture of some of my favorite things. I spotted Cadbury mini eggs at the dollar store last weekend and I was STOKED! These are hands down my favorite Easter candy (and probably my all-time favorite candy ever). I am impatiently waiting for the stores to get the bigger bags though, because I plan to hoard as many as I can because waiting a year to get them again SUUUCKS. Not going to lie, I ate every single bag in one day, but ot be fair, they were mini bags. πŸ˜› I got this cute “crazy cat lady” mug from the hubby’s family for Christmas. I finally used it to drink my orange juice, because I am trying to do everything I can to NOT get the flu. GIVE ME ALL THE VITAMIN C!!!

The hubby’s parents got me a felt letter board as one of my birthday gifts (my birthday is in March) and I was able to have it early. I am OBSESSED with this thing. The pictures I take with this letter board will be endless, haha. I was reading your name. by Makoto Shinkai…..

and you guys…it was amazing. HOLY CRAP! SO MANY FEELS. Hands down one of my favorite books that I read so far this year. I cried quite a few times. I plan to watch the movie this weekend. It was SO FREAKING GOOD!! I am living for it.Β I also got some new glasses that I am currently living for right now. I haven’t taken them off (well besides going to sleep, duh.). I have four pairs of glasses, but these have been my go to ever since getting them. New favorites. πŸ˜€

Books I got in the past week and a half. IMMORTAL REIGN, YOU GUYS!! It is finally hear and I am dying to open it and read it. I’m kind of trying to wait until my Immortal Reign bookmarks get here, because I want to use them with this book LOL. But I don’t know if I can hold out much longer, to be honest. I also came home to a package of ARCs from Fierce Reads. I was SO STOKED! So many books!!! SO MANY! I am really excited about all of them. A couple (Outcast and Between Frost and Fury) are sequels in a series and I think Outcast is even the 4th book. I don’t know if I will be reading those anytime soon or if I will do a books for trade for those two. I am really excited for all of the other ones though! Thank you to Fierce Reads for sending me this amazing package of Spring ARCs.

Another thing I am LIVING for is the new camper bracelet from Pura Vida Bracelets. I had to have it. I currently wear it all the time. I am also reading it right now as I type up this blog post, just saying. πŸ˜› Below are pictures of the front and back. Front is a little camper and the back says “happy camper”. Pura Vida Bracelets currently has so many bracelets I really want. They have these new desert themed ones (a Teepee and some arrows) and this pine cone bracelet. I NEED! I am trying to hold off though. I’ve been spending way too much money lately. I’m supposed to be in saving mode this year. I just love stuff so much, it’s hard. I’m trying though!

I recently found out that Snapchat works on my kitten, Leaf. I’ve tried it with every single one of my furbabies and it doesn’t work on them except for Leaf. I am now obsessed with taking pictures of her with all the new filters. She probably hates it, LOL.

And speaking of furbabies. This is the part where I spam you with a million pictures of my cats and dog, because I love them and they are so cute.

These are a couple pictures of my girl October. It’s hard getting many pictures of her, because she doesn’t always like to come up on the bed or she usually just likes to be in her own little world by herself.

My other girl, little Leaf. She loves cuddling. My other cats don’t really like it and RARELY do, so I am thrilled that I finally have one that loves it. HAHA. We actually almost lost her. I guess the front door wasn’t closed completely and she pushed it opened and ran out. Luckily we caught her just in time before she got through the fence. We have to be very careful with her, because she always likes to sit up against the front door when we get home and she likes to try get out a lot. By the way, I don’t know why I always end up with pictures of her sleeping versus awake, lol. It just happens.

My ColbyJack. Honestly, he was my dream kitten. I’ve always wanted and dreamed of having an orange kitten and I finally got one. He’s a huge drama queen though and likes to eat everything in sight. I still love him more than I’ve ever loved anything. He’s a total mamma’s boy too.

And of course, my boy Dax. He just had his eighth birthday yesterday (recycled last year’s birthday picture because I packed away the birthday hat). I love this guy so much. He’s the oldest of them all. He’s also ColbyJack’s best friend. It’s cute that when Dax is scared or hiding, Colby will go find him and check on him.

Dax went crazy licking Leaf one day and it was seriously THE BEST thing. I got some any funny pictures of it, but she didn’t mind it. She loves Dax. Everyone loves Dax and Dax loves everyone.

I love that they all four get along with each other so well and love each other. They don’t usually fight and when they do, 9 out of 10 times it’s play fighting.

Last but not least, here are some random flower pictures. I haven’t posted them to Instagram yet, so you’re seeing them first! They’ll eventually make their way on there. A few other pictures in this post haven’t been on Instagram yet either, but those will also eventually make it there too. I love the little red ones (I forgot what my mom said they were called), but we forgot to water them and now they are about to die. 😦 I thought the little purple flower was pretty cool. It was just this random purple flower in a sea of green leaves, lol.

That is all for this post. I hope you enjoyed seeing all of my pictures. I always think it’s fun sharing them. I love taking pictures for fun, so it’s nice posting them here too and to get random little updates about what is going on in my life. You’ll definitely be seeing more of that this year on my blog since I am changing things up a little bit and not only focusing on books.

In case you missed it;
Top Ten Tuesday|| Books that have been on my TBR the longest.

I hope you have a great day!

    • Thanks, Marie! πŸ˜€
      your name. was so good! I loved it so much. I watched the movie this weekend and I loved it! πŸ™‚
      I am really excited to read Airports, Exes, and Other Things I’m Over. It sounds so good. ❀

    • Shinkai said that the movie and the book are basically exactly the same except the movie is told in a different point of view than the book is. He also wrote the book while production of the movie was happening. He said the movie originally came first, but since the movie wasn’t completed yet, the book was released first. I thought that was really interesting. I’m glad that the movie will be pretty much exactly the same as the book! I’m so glad I loved it too and I can’t wait to watch the movie this weekend. πŸ˜€ ❀

    • Thank you!: D It’s not always easy to take pictures of my cats either. It’s nice when I get lucky and get some good shots. My calico cat (the mostly black one) is so hard to get pictures of. She doesn’t ever sit still or even like being touch most of the time.
