Sunday Social

Hello friends!
I came across a new link up and thought it was a great idea, so here I am linking up and loving it!  If you've read anything on my blog, it's probably pretty obvious that I love a good link up; it's such a great way to find new blogs to read!
+What are your favorite things to do on a lazy day?
Sundays are dubbed our lazy days.  I love lounging around the house with our dogs watching movies all day.  A great lazy day includes just that: spending all day with my husband and our fur babies, watching movies/Breaking Bad (since we stilllll haven't finished it yet) and making a nice dinner at night.  All this while drinking wine. Can't forget the wine.. or in today's case, sangria and hard root beer.
+What is your TV guilty pleasure?
Pretty Little Liars is my true guilty pleasure.  I mean the plot of the show is just ridiculous but I can't turn away!
+What is your favorite road trip music?
Anyone have XM radio?  There is a station called Pop2k and it is my entire childhood in one station.  I love it.  I'm talking like Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Jessica Simpson, S Club 7 (anyone remember them? anyone? Bueller?).  Songs I didn't remember existed and then knew every word when it came on.  Love reliving the good ol' days on that station!
+What are your favorite magazines or books to read by the pool or laying around?
I wouldn't say I have a specific book or magazine I go to when laying by the pool; anything I'm currently reading I'll read.  I will say I'm more of a book person rather than a magazine person when it comes to laying out.
+What is your favorite snack?
I'm a 'chips and dip' kind of person as opposed to a 'sweet tooth' kind of person.  Give me a good dip with chips and I'm your girl.


Motivational Monday

I love this quote and everything it represents.  Nothing is too hard for us to handle and I think we need to remind ourselves more than we are in control, even if it feels sometimes we're not.

There is nothing I can't handle; God wouldn't throw it at you if He didn't know what He was doing.

Happy Monday and cheers to a good week :)


The Girl Behind The Blog: Meet Allie

When I find new blogs, I love reading about the author, in an effort to really get to know her.
It's where you can figure out what similarities you have in common, and can really connect you to a blog.

I recently read a blog post from a blog I frequent about her dog, and I had an idea. 
What if I make a new series for my blog, entitled The Girl Behind the Blog:  Meet ____. 

Because it makes so much sense to introduce my dogs before I truly introduce myself...

**You have been warned, this post is a long one.  When I start talking about my dogs, I keep going..and going..and going. **

I give you the first post of The Girl Behind the Blog.

Meet Allie.

Allie is our 6.5 year old Beagle and she has our heart.  She was our "first born" as we like to say.  All of our dogs have a special story on how we got them, and I love that.

I know all pet owners have a special story, but for each of our dogs it really is fate that we have them.

Allie's story goes like this:

Ryan and I had been dating for only 6 months at the time we got her. 

Ahh, I can't deal.  Look how little Rylee was!
And look how big she is now! They love eachother!
 I knew Ryan was "different" when we started dating, meaning I knew I would fall in love with this kid and it would either end in heartbreak or we'd go all the way.  I never once thought it would end in heartbreak...but being that young (I was 18, he 19) it's scary saying you might have just met your husband!  No one believes you because you are so young.  But, at that time, it was so early on in the relationship that he was just my current boyfriend. 

But to say my boyfriend and I got a puppy after 6 months of dating sounds crazy to me!  So, I adopted Allie never dreaming that Ryan would be in her life forever. So grateful things ended up the way they did.

She's such a little lover :)

Rough life
It was the end of November, and we and our good friends Adam and CJ were going to go on a double date to a car show in Omaha.  On the way up, we looked up the prices online of the tickets and they were like 20 bucks a ticket.  Our men live and breathe cars, so they would have been ok with still going, but us women weren't all that excited to look at cars for a couple hours and spend 40 bucks to do it. 

So, as we are on our way to the car show, we make the impromptu decision to visit Tully's, a kennel in Omaha.  Tully's has a ton of diffrent dog breeds, all puppies, for sale. 
Now, some people don't like Tully's because they say the puppies are from puppy mills, and believe me, I am the first person to tell you all about my absolute hate, anger, and disgust of puppy mills because of a situation Ryan and had with one. 
You'll hear all about that when I tell you the story of Hudson.

Here's my opinion on Tully's:  Allie is from Tully's and there has never been anything "wrong" with Allie.  I've had more health problems with Hudson, our designer dog from a breeder, than I have with Tully's.  But the way I look at it, even if there was something wrong with Allie, I still would have adopted her.  In my mind, I want to take that dog out of it's environment and give it the best damn life it could ever imagine.  Why leave a puppy in a horrible environment, when you can bring it to your home and show it love, even if it has health problems as a result of it's upbringing?  That's my two cents. :)

Ok, so back to Allie. 

Allie loves being in the car;
she's always perched up like this looking out the window.
The four of us go to Tully's just to look at the puppies because that was our idea of a good time.  We're walking through, and I see a kennel with a beagle in it.  I've only ever had beagle's growing up, so I am immediately drawn to them.  I see only one beagle though in this kennel, and as I get closer, I notice a sale sign on the kennel for $250.  All her siblings had been sold and since she was the last one, she was on sale.

*I will say I hate that she literally was on sale; what is she a pair of jeans? But, I thank God that she was left for Ryan and I to adopt her.

I've always had a dog growing up, the same dog (a beagle, Murray) and he had died about a year and a half earlier at the age of 14.  I was ready to get a new dog but hadn't really truly thought much into it.

So when we see this beagle in her kennel, Adam, CJ, and Ryan start giving me the idea that I should adopt Allie.  I ask the employees if we can take her to a play room to get to know her and they said that would be fine.  We spent some time, all four of us plus this new little puppy in the play room and I'll be honest, at first I didn't know what to think. 

Oh, that little face just melts my heart
I hadn't expected to come home with a dog, and I knew I'd have to run it by my parents.  I call my mom, and tell her the story...except I fudged a little on her price.  I knew if I told my mom she was $250 she'd tell me that I shouldn't spend that much money and that it was a big fat no.  I told her she was on sale for $100...and after a small debate (my mom wasn't ready for a new dog yet) she agreed, without talking to my dad first. He was surprised, but ok with it.

From there, I went back in the kennel and started the adoption process.  I think I was more stunned then anything.  I mean, I woke up that morning having no idea I would go to sleep with a new puppy.

The first saturday of the month, at 11am, the sirens go off as a test. 
This happens, every.single.time.
She is a beagle, afterall!
Since I literally had no idea we were going to get a puppy, I had absolutely nothing for a new puppy, so we literally had to stop at Walmart and Petco on the way home so Ryan and I could buy food, dog bowls, collars, leashes, etc.  Adam and Cj stayed in the car with Allie while we ran in and bought necessaties.  I remember that shopping trip; it was so exciting buying items for a new puppy with my boyfriend!

We had no idea what to name her, but I knew I wanted a girly name.  I had only ever had boys for dogs, so I wanted a super girly name, even though beagles aren't typically that girly.  Cj suggested Ellie, and I fell in love.  We called her that for a couple days, but Ryan wasn't in love with it so he suggested Allie. 

It was just as girly, and very close to Ellie, so Allie Mae was born.  (I dont know why I called her Allie Mae, I still call her that to this day.  Does everyone make up middle names for their dogs? No?  Just me?)
She loves sunning herself.
She will find whatever ray of light there is just to lay in it.

I am so happy that fate brought us to Tully's that day.  We had absolutely no intention of going there and I'm so happy that we did.

6 years later, she has our heart more than ever.



High five for Friday!

Well, it's Friday again, and I'm pumped for that. 
Don't have a lot planned for this weekend, and my husband and I are excited for that.
I've mentioned before, but he works about 65 hours a week so when he gets home he's super tired.
This week, three of the five days he had something to go to after work as well.
Meaning he didn't get home until close to 10pm those nights, so he didn't have any free time to just hang out.
He's tired, and a tad grumpy.

On top of all of this, it's effing cold. 
Now I know I live in Nebraska, so cold weather comes with the territory.  I'm used to it by now.
But it snowed about 8 inches this week, and since then we've had seriously cold temperatures all week.
Yesterday got up to all of 9 degrees, and today is a high of 12.  Add windchill to that and it felt like it was
-30 the other day.  Literally, the "feels like" temp was -30.
I'm over the cold weather, I'm over my car being freezing for the first 10 minutes in it, even though I remote start it ahead of time.  I'm tired of worrying if my stupid neighbors will take their dog in at night.  I'm tired of having to make sure I always have my gloves on me or my fingers will freeze off.
I'm just tired of winter and it's only February.  I can handle 20s and 30s, but single digits with wind chills below zero gets a little much after awhile.
Spring time, please hurry!

Ok, enough of that rant.

I'm Linking up with Lauren for this week's High Five For Friday post!

1. Rylee spent the night last weekend and we had so much fun.  I took her swimming Saturday during the day with my Dad, and then Ryan and I took her bowling that night.  I try to have Rylee at least once a month spend the night so I get to really spend time with her.  I love that kid more than anyone on this planet (sorry Ryan..) so I really try to make an effort and be very involved!  They just moved about 30 minutes away from us (as opposed to living a house away from my parents) so it's been different not being able to see her exactly when I want.  This is why I schedule time, so we don't let life get in the way.

On Sunday when she woke up, I put in Hotel Transylvania, one of her favorites, and we watched it while eating breakfast. 
I looked over at her and Ryan and they had some serious zoned out faces going on at the TV.  It was cute so I snapped this picture. 

2. Superbowl Sunday!
...was a dud.  At least the game anyway!
I was soo rooting for the Broncos because I love me some Eric Decker.  And I am from Omaha...and Peyton loves his Omaha!
I was really disappointed they didn't perform better.
Can't win them all though, right?

I did, however, get some quality time with my favorite little 7 month old :)

3. When I came out of the bathroom after taking a shower the other night I came out to the living room to see my husband and his buddy cuddling.  It was so sweet.  Hudson is the absolute sweetest when it comes to cuddling, he's always on your lap and wants to be as close to you as possible.
Needless to say, my heart melted when I saw they were sleeping together.

Don't mind his devilish eyes; I have to keep the flash on when I take pictures of him because he literally blends in if I don't, so his eyes look creepy!

4. Speaking of Hudson...now a picture of him and I sleeping together!
I swear I love all my dogs the same, but Hudson is just the most cuddly so I have a lot of pictures with him.
Isn't he just the sweetest? 

5. I subbed on Thursday, so this means I come home with a mountain of artwork from students. 
They are so sweet, they get so excited to make things for me.
Makes me love teaching even more, and really makes me long for my own classroom!
Fingers crossed...

Have a wonderful weekend!


One Photo Wednesday

I've seen this trend around the blog world: One Photo Wednesday.
I thought it was a fun idea to sum up your day using just one photo.
Below is the photo I took that sums up my day:
working while watching Horton Hears A Who a thousand few times. 
Side note
When I'm not subbing, I work at a pediatrician's office.  I'm lucky enough to work for a company that allows me the flexibility to come and go, depending on if I get a call to substitute or not.  I am so incredibly thankful for that.  I know that I'm probably limited on how much longer they'll continue to let this happen (due to budgets and things that are out of my bosses control) but I'm so thankful I've been able to sub and still have hours at the clinic on off days. 
Ok, back to the original post.
I'm filling in for a friend who works at another location within our company, and the office is brand spankin' new.  As in, we had zero patients today.  None.  And the phone rang, maybe 5 times, total.  This is a huge change from what I'm used to, but I have to say it's refreshing to have a totally boring day. 
So, needless to say, I sat here and played Horton Hears A Who (which by the way is the shortest movie everrr) while trying to find things to do to keep myself busy.  I even turned on Netflix and watched a little bit of Footloose I was so bored. Guilt took over though and I turned it off.
Side note number two:  I did get the okay from my manager.  I'm not that terrible of an employee. :)

Not a lot happening for this One Photo Wednesday.  I am pretty excited though for tonight; I'm heading over to the gym tonight with a brand new workout from Jessica at Glisten Fit and I'm excited but nervous.  I've never really "worked out" consistently but I'm hoping that changes.
It's one of my goals this year and right now I'm extremely motivated!
Here's to a great workout, being able to walk tomorrow, and not watching Horton Hears A Who for a long, long time!


Road trip!

My husband and I are officially in planning mode for a summer vacation we're planning this July.  Yay!
We love to travel, it's kind of our thing. 
I wouldn't say we're crazy about it; we don't go to extravagant places very often, we just so happened to have gotten married last year and we've always known we wanted to go big on our honeymoon. 
I love an all inclusive resort just as much as the next person, but we wanted to do something that we may never get to do again.
Enter: Ireland 
Gougane Barra, Ireland

Beautiful right?!
 and London:

At the wax museum in London.
 I had to :)
I have a lot of family in Florida because my dad was born and raised there.  The first vacation Ryan and I ever went on together was in the summer of 2009 to Florida.  Ryan and I went by ourselves and stayed with my aunt and uncle who have a condo on the beach. 
If you look at this post, Ryan refers to it as his favorite vacation we've ever been on.  He says that because he said it's the first vacation we ever went on together, and it's the first time he truly realized that we were going to go the distance and he wanted to marry me. aawh :)

parasailing together
won't ever do that again...just sayin.
I love going back to Florida; I mean who doesn't love sun and the beach?  But Ryan really loves it.  His family didn't travel to the beach every summer like mine did when he was a kid so he truly enjoys every ounce of it. 

Florida 2012
We decided that this year, we're going to go back to Florida, but we're going to take a road trip instead of fly.  Ryan is under miles (by a lot!) on his truck since he leases, so he has some miles to burn. 
Our plan is to stay a night in Nashville going down, and then stay in New Orleans a couple nights coming back, as well as Memphis.  We've never been to New Orleans so we're going to make a little mini vacation out of that and stay two or three nights there as well. 
I can't tell you how excited I am! I love road trips and I love the quality time with Ryan that we get when we go on mini road trips to Kansas City, so I think we're going to have a blast.
We've decided we're going to rent a condo together as opposed to staying with my aunt and uncle since we're going to be down there at least a week.  I love the idea of making dinner in a kitchen and then taking a walk after dinner on the beach as opposed to going out for dinner every single night.  Daytona Beach has some amazing seafood joints, but that gets a little old to me. 
I'm so excited for what's to come this summer for him and I.  Half the fun is planning, especially if it's a road trip!
Here's to making memories with my husband in these first years of marriage!

Grammys 2014 Recap

Since the 2014 Grammy Awards were on this past Sunday, and since I love looking at the gowns and seeing who won what award, and watching amazing performances (hello Beyonce and Jay Z and Macklemore..) I thought it would be fun to do another recap of my favorites.   

Alicia Keys
I thought Alicia Keys looked amazing!  I love the color, cut and style of this dress but I think what I love most is her hair with the dress.  It's so fun and care free and only Alicia Keys could pull this look off.

Amber Rose
I've always thought Amber Rose is gorgeous.  Just like Alicia, there are only certain woman who can pull of a shaved head, and she falls into that category.  Her make-up is always flawless and I love that she chose to cover up here tattoss!  I actually do love tattoos and don't have any problems with them, but I do think that it was a good move covering them.  And no jewlry or accessories?  Nicely done.

Miranda Lambert
 Um, can we talk about how amazing Miranda Lambert looks?  She's lost a lot of weight and looks so great!  I've always thought she was beautiful, and I loved that she was proud of her body at any size, but I have to say she looks stunning.  Kudos to Miranda.

Taylor Swift
I really liked Taylor Swift's dress choice.  It was fun, but still classy.  I read that it was quite heavy because it was metallic, but I thought she pulled it off well.  And I really loved her performance!  I'm not the biggest Taylor fan anymore; when I was 17 I loved her, but now that I'm 25 and she still sings the same type of songs, I'm kind of over it.  I do love the song she sang, however.

And in other news... The Bachelor Wedding! 

Sean and Catherine
Since the wedding of Sean and Catherine was on the same night as the Grammy's I actually didn't watch either on live TV.  I DVR'd both and watched them later (mostly because I hate am not a fan of commericals). 
I watched most of Sean's season but quit about half way through.  I believe his season was on when I was student teaching and I just didn't have time to watch it week to week, and I never took the time to catch up.  I have to say, I was shocked when I saw that he picked Catherine.  I watched a good portion of the show and in the episodes I watched, Catherine was never in them.  So, needless to say, I was surprised to hear he picked her.  
I love them together though, they're fun and goofy and I think they compliment eachother so well.  
I love a good love story!
I will say the night of the wedding, I fast forwarded through the show to the ceremony so I could see her dress and see her walk down the aisle, I just couldn't wait any longer.
Sean cried when he saw his bride walk down the aisle for the first time...holy adorable!

Happy Tuesday!  


Motivational Monday

Couldn't have said it better myself. 

This is something I admit I need to work much harder at: not worrying so much.  I'm naturally a worrier, but not as bad as my husband.  Sometimes my husband has a tendency to see the worst in a situation, and I'm constantly trying to have him look at the glass half full instead of half empty. 

This is all great, we balance each other out I feel, until I start to worry and stress too.  Sometimes I feel that because I have to be the rock or the one who stays positive about everything, that I don't get the privilege (if you can call it that) of letting my guard down. 

2013 was a rough year for Ryan and I, financially.  I student taught from January until May (meaning I had zero income coming in), and we got married in June.  Because of this, I didn't start working full time again until July, after we got back from our honeymoon.  Ryan was working at an auto dealership making very little income (thank you car business).  He also had a part time job at the airport working for an airline, which also brought in very little income.

We made it through fine; I feel it brought us together and made us stronger because of how little we were surviving on, but as I look back now on that year, It's absolutely crazy to know what we did survive on. 

Since Ryan got a new job in November of last year, we're in a much better place...but I still worry.

I'm constantly trying to chill out and realize that our life isn't the same as it was last year, but my whole life my family lived paycheck to paycheck so why wouldn't we be any different?  I think I've spent so much time crunching numbers and making sure each bill gets paid, that I'm just used to feeling like we're always drowning, even though we're really not anymore.  Thank you, Jesus.

I'm so thankful for the company Ryan works for now, and that a job change happened when it did; who knows where we would be today living like we were.  Miracles happen everyday, when you don't realize you need a miracle, but I'm so glad God was watching over us and put an opportunity in our life when he knew we needed it. 

I'll be forever grateful.

Happy Monday, and I hope your week runs smoothly!


What I'm listening to

As I sit here with the daunting task of switching my previous iTunes library from an old (practically non-working) computer to a new computer (seriously, does anyone hate this as much as me?), I'm listening to some old tunes that I haven't listened to in quite some time.

This song by NEEDTOBREATHE came up and I was instantly brought back to about 2 years ago when I came across this band and first listened to this song (to see if I should download the whole album) and I instantly fell in love. 

They're a Christian rock band (which I love!) and I honestly had no idea until well after I had bought the album and became obsessed with it.  I love a good band who can incorporate different types of music without sounding overwhelmingly like one type. 

Have you listened to any of their songs?  I highly recommend!


High Five for Friday!

It's that time of the week again, and I am so excited for that!
Another busy weekend planned, mostly fun, but some unexpected house projects to do as well.  We've had three unexpected 'issues' with our house over the past three weeks, and this last one is an emergent one that needs to be fixed. 
The joy's of owning an older home, right?

Linking up with Lauren today for this week's High Five for Friday.

I subbed this week again and that makes me happy!  I love teaching and I love gaining experience before I have my own classroom, but I'm ready for my own classroom.  
Lord, please let me get a teaching job this August. 


My little Hudson. 
Nothing exciting happened, but what's a high five for Friday post without an adorable dog picture?
Without a doubt, Hudson is the most affectionate of my three babies; always by my side and follows me everywhere.  My little shadow I call him! 

black and tan cavalier king charles spaniel  Hudson dog

I bought this devotional for daily inspirations and I'm so excited.
I've needed a little pick-me-up lately and I've heard wonderful reviews on this book from  fellow bloggers so I'm excited to get started.  

I'm going to dinner with some girlfriends tonight and I'm excited for good food and better company!  A best friend of mine since we were little girls is in town (she lives in Tennessee) so I got a group of girls together to enjoy each other's company while she's in town.  She is also pregnant, so her family is throwing her an impromptu baby shower on Sunday, so that will be fun as well.  She got married a month after I did and I was on my honeymoon when she had her bridal shower, so I'm excited to be able to celebrate her new baby girl!

Cheers to a great weekend!


Liebster Award...say what?

Exciting news over here! 

The lovely Katherine from The Katherine Nicole was so kind to nominate View From the Cornfields for the Liebster Award!  It's so nice to know that there are other bloggers out there who are just as new at this as I am and I love that it's a way for us newbie's to connect and expose other blogs who are just starting out.  I'm told that in order to be nominated for this award, your blog must have less than 200 followers.

Here are the rules when awarded the Liebster Award:
+give 11 random facts about yourself
+answer 11 questions from the person that nominated you
+nominate 11 blogs (with under 200 followers) and make 11 questions for them to answer
My 11 facts:
+ I have a degree in elementary education and can't wait to have my own classroom one day.  Hoping that day will come this August...
+If I didn't have a care in the world, I would move to London.
+I love teaching, but my absolute dream job would be to become a veterinarian.  
+I have a tattoo on my wrist of the year Ryan and I got married in roman numerals.  I absolutely love it.
+After buying a puppy from a puppy mil (unbeknownst to us), and putting him to rest 2 months later because he was so sick, I went to the ends of the Earth to shut down the puppy mil he came from.  I succeeded.
+Ryan and I can't wait to start a family one day, God willing.
+I love musicals! 
+I love reading and I try to read as much as possible. 
+I have a curved spine (thanks Dad) and if I were to have back surgery to correct the curvature (one day I will), I was told I would gain 4 inches in height.  I'm told no one notices my back like I do, but I disagree.  It's my biggest insecurity, by far.
+I had the same dog (a beagle, Murray) growing  up from when I was 3 years old until almost 18.  I don't remember the week he died because I've blocked it out, it was that traumatic. 
+My favorite kinds of movies are comedy's and thrillers.
Questions given to me by Katherine:
+ If you could spend a year anywhere in the world--where would you go and what would you do there?
I kind of answered this above, but I would go back to London.  I absolutely loved the lifestyle in London.  Waking up and walking to the tube (train station), walking to restaurants, etc.  It was a big city but didn't seem big once you got off your stop.

+ Where is your favorite place to shop?
Target and Ulta are a couple of my favorites.  Target has literally anything, and Ulta is my weakness.  I get in trouble at Ulta.

+ How long have you been blogging?
I started a different blog about a year ago, but deleted it because it became something I wasn't enjoying.  I started this blog is October of 2013 with the intent of enjoying it for myself again.  So far, I love it!

+ How did you pick your blog name?
Picking a blog name can be intimidating so I didn't want to think too much into it.  Since Nebraska has a lot...a lot of cornfields, I just thought it would be fun to say this is my view from the cornfields.  It stuck!

+ What are 3 things you can't live without?
My husband, my dogs and my niece >>we'll say family on that one and consider that one item.  So, my family, coke, and my USB drive. Ha!  I am trying to get a teaching job after all!

+ Would you rather fly or take a road trip to your vacation destination?
Fly, please!  Road trips are fun, and I enjoy them as much as the next person, but in order to not waste time I would rather fly.
+ What's your favorite comfort food?
Oh, Lord, this is easy.  Macaroni and Cheese.  I literally could survive on Mac and Cheese.  Any variation.
+Current television show obsession?
Breaking Bad, Pretty Little Liars and Revenge.
+What are 3 things on your bucket list?
Open up an animal rescue shelter for pets born into puppy mills, travel to Washington DC to visit museums and monuments from our nation's history, visit Bora Bora with my husband.
+Dog or cat person? Post a picture if you have one :)
Given that I've already talked about dogs a lot already, definitely a dog person!

+ Best way to spend a Saturday?
My husband doesn't have to work, go to lunch together, go do some shopping together and see a movie at Cinedine later that night. Swoon.

Him vs. Her

I thought it would be fun to do a little him. vs. her action to see how Ryan and I compare.  I sent him an email at work with the following items and just said "type your favorites in next to the item!"

Ryan: boots
Robin: Toms or boots (in the winter).  Every girl needs a good pair of boots...or 9.
*Am I right?

Ryan: Guinness
Robin: coke
*Shocker, Ryan and Guinness.  I do enjoy a good glass of Guinness every so often, however.  

Ice cream flavor
Ryan: vanilla
Robin: chocolate
*Good ol' opposites on that one.

Ryan: green
Robin: turquoise

Ryan: toffee
Robin: Reece's Peanut Butter Cups
*Never, in my life, have I seen Ryan eat toffee, or even ask for toffee.  Learn something new every day?

Robin: country
*This is something we share in common and something that brought us together, originally.  We have many memories at country concerts, it's something we do regularly together.

Carrie Underwood, 2010 or 2011 maybe?
 Jason Aldean, 2013

On our way to Keith Urban, 2012 maybe?
Go to outfit
Ryan: jeans/ tee
Robin: Depends on the occassion like any woman!

Ryan: Famous Daves
Robin: Texas Roadhouse or
*Mmm, I was never a fan of Famous Dave's because I'm not a huge BBQ person, but when they started offering their mac and cheese that is heavenly, I'm hooked.

Ryan: Backdraft
Robin: Pretty Woman or Horrible Bosses
*Oh Lord, where do I start.  Ryan is a volunteer firefighter and has grown up with a father who was state fire marshal for many years, so fire fighting has always been a part of his life.  Enter: Backdraft.  He watches this movie over and over and over and over and over...and over again.  But I'm not different with my movies.  Pretty Woman has to be the most romantic movie off all time in my opinion.  And Horrible Bosses is a movie Ryan and I share a love for...it's hilarious.

Ryan: BBQ/Steak
Robin: Mac and Cheese.

Something you can’t live without
Ryan: you
Robin: Ryan...and my dogs.
*In no particular order... :) just kidding.

TV show
Ryan: Home Improvement
Robin: If we're talking of all time: Friends, Home Improvement; currently: Revenge, Pretty Little Liars and Breaking Bad.
*Home Improvement is a show Ryan and I are constantly watching together.  It's one of those, 'Nothing's on TV? Ok, just put an episode of Home Improvement on.' Friends is another all time fave, I can't believe it's been 10 years since it went off air! Holy old balls.  And my guilty pleasure is Pretty Little Liars...Ryan makes fun of me but it's so good!

Wake up time (m-f)
Robin: If I'm subbing, 630a; if I'm at the doctor's office 730a. 
*Um, hello we need to wake up earlier.

Way to relax
Ryan: watch movies
Robin: take a bath and read

Vacation spot
Ryan: Ireland
Robin: London
*This makes me laugh.  We went to Ireland and London on our honeymoon and I find it funny that his favorite spot was Ireland, and mine was London.  I am so happy that we decided to "go big" for our honeymoon and spend the money to travel to Europe.  I will forever cherish those memories spending our first few days as husband and wife traveling Europe together.  We're already saving for our next European trip!

Gouganne Barra, Ireland.  Beautiful right?

 Big Ben, London
Ryan: Christmas
Robin: Christmas

Ryan: football
Robin: Husker football!

Memory you and I have together
Ryan: our first Florida vacation.
Robin: our honeymoon 
*My dad is originally from Florida, so I have family that lives there.  Ryan and I had been dating about 2 years and he came with my family and I for a summer vacation.  This was our first time really traveling together so it was fun.  Ryan still talks about that trip!
