Hello my lovely readers,
It's been a while...and I am sorry. Life has been incredibly busy this spring for a number of reasons.
1. We went on our honeymoon.
My husband and I decided to go on our honeymoon some time after our wedding...and we went to Disney World. I have been obsessed with Disney World since the first time my family went when I was twelve. My favorite parts of our trip were eating with the Disney princesses at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway at Epcot and my organic facial at Senses Spa at the Grand Floridian Resort. This trip proved Disney is for all ages.
2. The University of Louisville Cardinals win NCAA Basketball Championship
After we got back from the honeymoon, my Louisville Cardinals defeated Duke (with a tragic injury to Kevin Ware) to go to the Final Four. My husband surprised me with a trip to Atlanta to see my team play in the Final Four and eventual Championship game. While my Cardinals won the NCAA tournament, one of my favorite inspirations passed away. I celebrated her life with the purchase of a new Lilly at the Atlanta store. My favorite part of the trip, other than UofL winning, was my superstition with accessories. I wore the same accessories for all the tournament games.
3. New Addition to Our Family
My husband and I adopted a kitten two weeks ago and named him Mo. We were going to wait to adopt a pet in September, but I randomly walked into PetSmart and couldn't resist that face. He is becoming quite the snuggler.
This spring has also brought up some interesting events in the political world as well. This IRS scandal is becoming quite hilarious for me due to the media. Liberal outlets trying to brush it "under the rug" while conservative outlets are blowing it more out of proportion than it needs to be. Did the IRS target Tea Party groups who applied for tax exempt status? Yes. Conservatives need to stop acting so shocked (since it actually came out a year that the IRS was doing this) and just keep investigating. As Lois Lerner keeps pleading the Fifth Amendment, those responsible will incriminate themselves. Just be patient. Let's remember what happened when the Republicans went after President Clinton during the impeachment process.
One blog post and an article on Politico I suggest:
On an ending note, I have to say that I am very proud of Senator Rand Paul for his defense of Apple during a Homeland Affairs and Government Affairs Subcommittee hearing concerning how Apple files its taxes.
Hope this is a great start to the summer,
