Where am I now???


So… I have a blog… This is a fact that I have somewhat forgotten for almost TWO YEARS?! Holy moly, how things can change in such a short amount of time! For my followers, I hope you haven’t forgotten about me, and I hope to make this blog a place where you can visit again regularly.

Here’s a quick life update – since the last time I posted, I have (in no particular order):
– Finished my Masters degree
– Gotten a promotion at work
– Moved into my own apartment
– Welcomed a brand new puppy
– Sold my guinea pig due to allergies 😥
– Been the Maid of Honour in my best friend’s wedding
– Started working at my church part-time in the youth department

So I guess you could say a LOT has been going on! Now that the changes are done and the dust has settled, let’s get this blog up and running again! I feel like now that I’m out on my own and the education is finished, this is where the real exploration begins. I want to use this blog to document the journey!

So, I look forward to taking you all along with me!

See you soon!

Ke$ha in Person

Hey everyone,
happy Saturday!

In my entire life, before this year, I had only ever been to two real concerts. One was the Moffats (please tell me someone remembers them), and the other was Hilary Duff. This past August, I had the awesome chance to go see Ke$ha in concert during her Warrior tour. Since I never really even posted any pictures on Facebook, I thought why not share some snaps with you all. Because of the really bright lights, I don’t think I actually managed to get a good picture of Ke$ha… but you can at least see some things that we did and saw!

As you can see, we may or may not have gotten photobombed in that one.

And here is a little video!

The next concert that I will be going to is ONE DIRECTION and I can hardly wait! What concerts have you been to, or do you look forward to attending in the future? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,
Liv 🙂

My Celebrity Dinner Party

Hey everybody,

For today’s post, I thought I’d try something a little different. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have all of your favourite celebrities, dead or alive, in one place? I know I have. So what I’ve decided to do is compile a list, in no particular order, of who I would invite to my celebrity dinner party and why.

1) Khloe Kardashian Odom

Say what you will, but Khloe is probably my favourite of the Kardashians. She is so funny, and is always getting into some kind of shenanigans. So imagine what fun events she could bring to a dinner party! I know I’d love to find out.

2) Bryan Cranston

You probably recognize him as Walter White, the bad-ass meth manufacturer from Breaking Bad. But what I want to know is: is he really that bad-ass in real life? And if not, how does he channel his inner criminal? This could be a really good discussion.

3) Zooey Deschanel

She just seems so quirky, doesn’t she? I absolutely love every movie or TV show she has ever been in, and I would love to just sit down and talk to her and experience her uniqueness (is that a word?) in person.

4) Niall Horan

Well, to start with, who wouldn’t want to just stare at Niall for the entirety of a dinner party? I know I would, no problem. But if you’ve seen One Direction’s movie “This is Us” (which I have… twice), you will know that Niall has a really funny, creative streak. While watching that movie, he may have just earned a soft spot in my heart. I’d love to know his thoughts on the band’s whirlwind success and everything that comes with it. And with his and Khloe’s crazy antics combined, everyone will be in for a treat!

5) Cory Monteith

Since I first started watching Glee, Finn was always my favourite character. So earnest, funny, and determined. Cory Monteith, as a person, was also an inspiration to me. A Canadian like myself, he worked many unfulfilling jobs before finally making it big at age 27. Although he died in a terrible way, his life continues to be an inspiration to many. I would have loved to get a chance to meet him, and talk to him about what motivated him to keep trying for as long as he did and pursue his dreams. Rest in peace, Cory.

Well, I don’t know about you, but if I were planning on having this dinner party at my house, I don’t think I’d have room for too many more. But what I’d like to know is, who would you invite to your celebrity dinner party?

I’m going to call this the “Celebrity Dinner Party Tag”, so I want to ‘tag’ you all to do this post on your own blog! Post a link to your blog in the comments, so I can read your guest list. If you don’t have a blog, write your guest list in the comments! I’m interested to see who y’all would pick.

Until next time,
Liv xoxo

The Little Things Are the Big Things

Have you ever found yourself feeling very bored? Or caught yourself wishing your life was better, or more grand? I know I have. Sometimes it feels like our little lives are dull, uneventful, not exciting enough. But when you step back and look at the big picture, you might find that the little things in life are what make it wonderful. So today I thought I would share with you a few things in my life that I am very grateful for, no matter how little. Be forewarned, most of these snaps are from my phone and not of the best photographic quality.

Perusing the bargain bin at Target. ‘Romantic Favorites’? Hmmm…

The beauty of your city.

A colourful sunset.

Dinner with friends.

Making teddy bears with your bestie.

Taking pictures of your brother when he falls asleep at work.

When little kids make you stuff.

See what I mean? All of those things are pretty simple, but don’t they just make life that much brighter? What are some little things in your life that make you happy? Let me know!

Until next time,
Liv ❤
