First off, I just wanted to say thank you to all my supportive readers -especially everyone who commented and emailed. Your kind words really made me feel so much better and pushed me to want to blog again. On Wednesday night when I wrote the last post, I really did feel like taking a break but having a pretty great day Friday along with reading all of your comments and emails made me feel at ease again.

A little display in my boyfriend's room of things I've made/bought him. He has these things all around the room but the other day, I saw this display under his TV and thought it was cute. <3
However, my boyfriend does understand why I blog and why I love to so it makes him 10x more lovable. My boyfriend and I are not the overly mushy types (i.e. "OMG I love you soooooooo much I want to marry you and have 15 kids with you!!) BUT he does show me he cares by doing things for me. He cooks for me, practically always lets me have my way (LOL), trades meals with me if we go out to eat and I don't like my order, drives far distances to see me (we're sort of long-distance), checks my blog on a regular basis, listens for hours while I talk about things he's not even interested in, gives me massages to get rid of all the insane knots in my shoulders, rubs my temples when I have headaches, waits endless hours while I shop, will walk/drive out of the way (sometimes to multiple locations) just to cure my food cravings, and buys me makeup -even on crazy MAC launch days. Even though he prefers my "minimal makeup" look, he still supports my habit! And the thing is, that's really not even half of what he does for me.
His qualities as a person are amazing. He's incredibly nice, loyal, forgiving, funny, just plain silly, and the list goes on. Ever since I could remember, the only guys that would come knocking were dumb jocks or guys who were/thought they were gangsters (LOL, I know..) I had a string of terrible boyfriends before I met my current one. He's a great writer, can spit (actually good) rhymes, has awesome taste in music, has excellent taste when it comes to sports (Laker hater like me!), and is slightly dorky in his own way -not in a nerdy way, he's just really goofy. And best of all, I'm a priority in his life and he puts me first. Sometimes I bring on the girl drama and act like he doesn't care (especially during that time of the month) but he does and it makes me really, really happy. No guy (outside of my family) has ever cared about me as much as he has and I'm so thankful for him every single day. Also, he has so much faith in God and has really brought my own faith back -before we were together, I felt so "low" and he got me to really believe again.
These are things I haven't ever really told him so I figured it was about time after all these years. I'm so grateful for him and everyone else I have in my life including my family, friends, and readers. You have no idea how touched I was to receive your emails and comments. I find it crazy that even though I don't know you all personally, I feel this "connection" with all of you. I love how we have this online community here on this blog, other blogs, Specktra, MakeupAlley, etc. where we all have the same passion for makeup, fashion, Hello Kitty, and random cute things. =P
Anyways, this was just a haul/thank you post and I wanted to dedicate to all the loves in my life. =) Oh yea, regular non-ranting posts will show up again soon. Have a fabulous Sunday everyone. <33
