I came across this 30 day blog challenge, and thought I'd give it a shot. I've never been the kind of person to do these survey/challenge things, but I just finished my "oh so wonderful five-midterms-in-five-days" week, so I'm allowing myself to do some random blogging to relax.

There's no way I'll blog 30 days in a row (I have a hard time making myself blog weekly) so we'll see how this turns out...

Day 1: Introduce, recent picture of yourself, 15 interesting facts.
 Look all over this blog, you'll see pictures of Sean and I. And you probably know who we are so we'll skip those parts.
I'm not interesting enough (or creative enough) to think of 15 facts, so you'll have to deal with 8.

1. There are a few foods you will always find in our kitchen. Even at the end of the week when we desperately need groceries, we'll always have garlic, chips and salsa, popcorn, cereal and milk (for me, Sean won't drink milk), and fruit snacks (preferably gushers). Wow, aren't we healthy?
2. Going along with the above, I always cook with garlic and onion. Maybe I should try to branch out a little bit? The flavors are just so good.
3. Lately, Sean has been trying to be extra healthy. I've really tried to support him by cooking healthier, but sometimes I'll come home with bags of unhealthy snacks (for example: gushers were 79 cents last week, so I bought 4 boxes!) then he gets upset because I'm "tempting" him with yummy fatty foods. I totally don't meant to, but I'm a huge junk food eater. That's gonna catch up to me someday (by the way, Sean had only 1 or 2 of the gushers, so that left me to take care of the rest).  
4. We attend an arcade at least every other week, if not weekly. It's our stress relief.
5. We can't wait to move out of the traffic-jammed, jogger/biker-infested city of Provo. Moving this summer. Yay!
6. We watched the Malcom in the Middle TV show series (all 151 episodes/7 seasons) in a period of two months. We'd watch 2 or 3 episodes every night before we went to bed. Watching the last episode was a sad night for us. I hate to see fun things end.
7. We are currently deciding whether or not to buy a house, car, or just keep saving our money. (Or go to Hawaii-that's my vote.)
8. Running out of interesting facts... (let's face it, none of these are interesting. sorry) Last fact: I have the sweetest husband in the world. Remember one of my recent posts about him being superman? Well he did that again last Tuesday. What a man.

Day 2 - Meaning behind your blog name
Yes I know, my blog name is not nearly as creative as I'd like it to be. I’m not the biggest fan of it; several times I have wanted to change it, but I don’t have anything else to call it (maybe when we have kids I can make it cuter). I almost titled it with our wedding song, but “The Way You Look Tonight” doesn’t really work as a blog title. I actually really love the song “You Make Feel So Young.” (and I love Elf.) Yes, Sean and I are very young so you probably think it’s immature for me to say he makes me feel young, but listen to the rest of the song. It’s a classic. Classic oldies always have reminded me of Sean. I saw this picture on facebook the other day and found it completely hilarious. It also made me proud to call "The Way You Look Tonight" our wedding song.

Day 3: Your first love.
Truthfully… Sean. Don’t believe me? You don’t have to. He is.

Day 4: Picture of your family

Day 5: What song inspires you.
Hmm... It's not inspiring, more cheesy, but I love this song (stupid music video, sorry). Maybe I love it so much because Sean calls me Honeybee. (Melissa means "honeybee" in Greek)

Day 6: Pet peeves.
Mine: Stupid parents
Sean's: Bad drivers

Day 7: Picture of something that makes you happy.
These pictures make me incredibly happy. I can't wait to have little boys who look just like this.

Well, 7 days is enough for today. I'm out.


  1. You should probably get moving on that baby business. Sean was one cute kid and you were the most beautiful baby on earth, so get crackin'. :)

  2. Agree 100% with your for your other sister over here...I'M SO HAPPY I MADE IT IN THE FAMILY PORTRAIT!!!!!!!! And I love this post.

  3. Cutest pictures of Sean ever! That's totally how I remember my little cousin. Glad he's grown up to be such a good man and hubby : )
