Chasing Shooting Stars



This weekend was the Perseids Meteor Shower, I kept tagging my boyfriend in notes about it on Facebook saying we should go check them out. He’s currently working on his Masters (#Goals), and has been incredibly busy trying to get his final exam finished. However, with everything going on he made it a point for us to drive out of the city and into the country to see the shooting stars. Neither of us thought this whole going to chase shooting stars thing through, as we packed NOTHING that would make this trip easier. Even though we were winging it, the trip turned out to be amazing. We did it Sunday night and stayed out until about 11:30 since both of us would have to work in the morning. That night was more than I could ask for; we saw some perfect shooting stars, including ones that left a trail in the sky. It was so nice to experience that with him especially since around this time last year we were Chasing the Northern Lights together. I love that he is willing and even likes doing these things with me, I couldn’t ask for a more amazing guy in my life. I can’t wait for our next moonlight adventure; hopefully it’ll involve a bonfire on the beach.

Restaurant Review: Mexican Village


I never thought I would meet someone who loved Mexican food as much as me, but I definitely met my match. My boyfriend gets Mexican cravings, just like I do. He also knows of some really delicious Mexican spots. Actually, little fact... my boyfriend is AMAZING at finding us restaurants to try together. A few weeks back he was sick, and I was trying my best to take care of him, making sure he was eating, staying hydrated, taking it easy...etc. When he was feeling a little better we decided to get carry-out from Mexican Village. The portions are insane, both of us really should of just split a meal. I ended up getting the Fajitas, which were delicious I might add. While he decided on the Arizonian which came with 1 Beef Chimichanga, 1 Beef and Cheese Burrito, 1 Flour Beef Taco, 1 Beef and Cheese Enchilada as well as Rice and Beans. We both really enjoyed our meal and will definitely be going back.
