social media

So a few weeks ago I realized just how much time I spend on Facebook. Almost every free second I had I'd check my news feed. I'd feel almost frustrated when people weren't posting. There were times I'd get off Facebook on the computer and immediately, without thinking, I'd open it on my phone. I knew it was a problem, and annoying for Ian, but I'd try just deleting the icon on my phone to add an extra step, but that lasted all of a few days. 

(This is feeling very dramatic, sorry haha)

I decided the only real way to stay off Facebook was to delete it. So one morning I clicked "deactivate" and went on my jolly way. It wasn't too bad, mostly because work was busy. Then on vacation I was okay, but kinda felt like I was really leaving my friends out. I actually was doing something interesting and no one was there to know! Sure, I use Google+ but I think I have 2 friends (not including Ian haha) that use it! So happy day for them!

I've thought about all my friends that don't use Facebook. They have hobbies. Or kids. Or both. I don't. I work. I'm at a great place in life that I can be a workaholic. We don't have kids, we both have great jobs, and we both have our own ways to get to work without relaying each other. Both of us are workaholics! But I don't have an exactly exciting job to tell the world about. Okay, that's a lie. I really love my job but picture-less posts are boring (If you're even still reading this, sorry.) And I don't want to put pictures of the kids on the internet. 

I know I could post on here, but really, I know no one thinks my life is that interesting. I need a hobby ASAP!! So yeah, I'll post when something interesting happens or when I try a new recipe!

Vegas baby!

We just got back from our first vacation together! 

It was a joint anniversary, my birthday, and Ian's birthday gift. 

He planned it out amazingly, we saw so much, did so much...ATE so much! Seriously, the best vacation ever!

Killer awesome shoes!

New York, New York

Cola from around the world....NASS-A-FRASS!

Bellagio Fountians

We saw Gordon Ramsey!

Umm, spiral escalators?? Awesome!

A very modern hotel (Aria I think?) had a really cool canoe sculpture.

This really cool tornado water feature in a mall.

The same mall had these ice sculptures. Fantastic!

Ian is on stage at the Penn & Teller show signing an envelope and checking a box for a trick.

The ever shiny TRUMP TOWER! It was fantastic! 

We ate lunch inside, it was so yummy!

The ship outside Treasure Island. We never did see the show haha!

Our last meal from the vacation. A little bit of death by chocolate!

We also saw Blue Man Group which was fantastic! I got an eye wiggle from one of them! I was SO close to going on stage with them! 

Our feet hurt--badly!!, but it was by far the greatest vacation ever! Thank you honey!
