Chicken Teriyaki.

Ok, I said I would talk about my tattoos today.

I'll start with the one on the back of my shoulder.
When I was about seven, my best friend was a boy named Trey, we later made friends with a kid named Todd. At 16 Todd was diagnosed with brain cancer, he got really sick, and decided he would rather take his own life then let the cancer kill him.
Orange was his favorite color so Trey and I took orange lily's to his funeral, and that is the same flower we take every time we see him, so that is why I have it on my shoulder.

The sea-horse on my foot is the sister I never really got to have, I was two when my mom had her, but she didn't even live for a day. Her nursery was done in under-water stuff and I had bought her a little sea-horse toy for her bed, which I still have.

Anyways, those are my reasons.
I have to go make din-din for the family now.

Chicken Teriyaki.

I learned something today.

I am actually half-way decent at doing nails, in particular, french manicures.

I also drove by a sandwich place called Witch-Wich...
It made me laugh.

My honey is coming over tonight. :)
I'm excited.

And I think in the morning I may make us pan-cakes.
We will see.

I need to find an awesome new band to listen to.
My ears are craving something new.
Suggestions anyone?
I listen to pretty much everything, as long as I can tap my feet to it, or sing-a-long.

My cat is laying on my feet, she is asleep, and snoring.
I almost just want to sit here until she wakes up, she is just so cute, I don't want to move her.

I'm really just babbling tonight.
Want to know something random about me?
Maybe you don't, but I'll tell you anyways.

I have 2 tattoos.
A orange lilly on the back of my left shoulder, and a black sea-horse on my foot.
Both mean a lot to me. I think I will explain why tomorrow though, it's time to see my honey. :)

Well, my dad got married tonight, it was really weird for me, and it showed, I know it did. My cousins were worried about me, and so was Kevin I think.

My honey went with me though, and we got to dance and it was cute, i'm spending the rest of my night with him.

I don't have more to say tonight though, I just wanna go cuddle with my honey, and find some food.


Goodnight, sleep-tight, don't let the bed bugs bite.

Anywhere you go, let me go too.

I rented the Phantom Of The Opera from blockbuster yesterday. I've since watched it twice. It's romantic, and scary, and sexy, and well, sad. I put up a video of my favorite scene so you can all enjoy it as well.

It's one of my favorite movies, but, each time I watch it, I always change my mind on which guy I want to win to girl over.

I won't talk about that anymore though, because if you don't know the story, you probably have no idea what I am talking about.

My dad is getting married tomorrow. I'm excited, not for the wedding, but it'll be the first time I get to dance with my honey.

Wanna know something? I still get butterflies in my tummy when I think about him. :)
He is my best-friend, my boyfriend, my secret-keeper, my laughter, my heart-beat, and my lover.
I always knew our friendship had the potential to be something more than it was, but I didn't know I would fall for him this hard, but I'm not complaining. I am in love, 110%.

My day was really very good. Spent some quality time with my grandma, and my momma. Had a nice, normal, intelligent conversation with my little brother.
Bought some jeans.
Saw an old friend while I was driving, he followed me, and we went to Dairy Queen, talked about the old days of school at Little Elementary, and about people we used to know, and how he had been since his mother passed. We talked about his girlfriend, and how she could be pregnant, and how he was living in his grandparents basement now, because he can't stand his dad. He just laughed and said something like, "Yeah, I just never saw any of this coming, we are all grown up now aren't we Amanda?" I said yeah Gary, I guess so. He hugged me goodbye and said we should both make more of an effort to keep in touch, I nodded in agreement, and then we went our different ways.

I don't know if that will happen, we may never talk again. We may never see each other again, but it reminded me of how blessed I am really. He had an amazing attitude going though, even though things have been really shitty for him lately, he was still optimistic, and full of faith.

I heard only good songs on the radio, and even found 5 dollars I didn't know I had in my pocket.

On a different note,
I am very, very, seriously considering taking a bar-tending course soon. We will see, I think it could be sort of exciting though. It's not something I see myself doing forever, but for a little while anyways.

To end my night, I think I'll read, do some laundry, and then spend time with my honey of course. :)

So, that is it for tonight everybody, we can chit-chat some more tomorrow.

big trees.

So, I know I said I'd post a picture of the necklace I made, but I am posting this from a friends computer, and my necklace is at home, so another time maybe.

I fell in love with a house today.

It was beautiful.
A big front yard, red brick, and a big front porch.

It's an old house, but it was very charming, it had lots of big green trees that hid it, and I really think it's the trees that made me love the house, it just looked like a happy place to live.

Other than spending time with my amor, I think that was the best part of my day.
The rest I spent hanging out, walking my dogs, and job hunting.

I did have lunch with my grandparents though.
My dad's parents.

They really are a very cute couple,
they still hold hands and dance at wedding's.
And they still laugh at/ with each other, I think thats most important. :)

I don't really have much to say, so my babbling ends here tonight.

I'll write more tomorrow, I pinky promise.

I love chai tea.
It's calming, and fantastic, I don't even mind when it burns my tongue, it's worth it.

And it makes me wish fall was here because it just seems like a fall drink, like something you should be drinking while you are wearing a sweater, sitting on your porch with a book, watching the leaves fall off the branches of your favorite tree. Thats what I think anyways.

Ted Kennedy died early this morning I think, or late last night.
My grandma cried. It sorta makes me wonder if when i'm older, if there will be someone of a huge importance, in the publics eye, will pass-away, and if it'll make me cry...
I guess I just wonder if I could ever feel such a connection like that to someone I don't really know.
Hmmm. I think about weird things.

I made a necklace today, it's pretty neat actually.
It kinda reminds me of Pocahontas, maybe i'll put a picture of it up tomorrow.
Someone remind me though, or I'll forget.

Well, I don't have much to say for now. I'm gonna search the web for some cat-eye frames.
New glasses soon hopefully.

Then i'll be on my way to my honey's house.
Have a lovely day or night.

My house is quiet, except for the ceiling fan which makes sort of a ticking sound.
Today was exceptionally good. My Honey, and I took a little boy who lives on my street to the Butterfly Pavilion. It's the place to be if you are a two year old boy. It doesn't just have butterflies, it has lots of gross bugs, and even a under-the-sea section.

I sort of have a unique situation with this boy, I was 2 when I moved in to the house I live in now, At the time, Travis was 12, his birthday is 3 days after mine so we are almost exactly 10 years apart. He lived/lives in the house next to me. I adored him and he even built a go-kart thing and put a baby seat on it for me. Years later, Travis moved back to the house, with his own wife and baby, so Aiden, his son comes over to see me all the time now, just like I used to go see Travis. Aiden and I share a birthday. He really is the cutest thing. See?!?! :D

I'm listening to the newest Kelly Clarkson cd right now. Amazing. Definitely worth the 11 dollars I spent on it at Target. In particular I'm listening to the song called Ready. I think I relate to it most right now.

I think I want the newest Beyonce album as well, but we will see, a good bunch of songs I've heard off of it remind me of my honey, which is definitely a good thing.

My dad is getting married this weekend, I know I should be happy for him, because he does deserve to be happy, but it's really really weird for me, and it all happened so fast, one day divorce, a month later living with his girlfriend, a year later, he's already getting married? After 20 years of marriage to my mom? I know It shouldn't bother me, but something about it just feels...icky to me, and I can't get past it.

Plans for later, reading, walking my dogs, filling out a job app., hanging out with a friend....hopefully getting some Chipolte, (nothing sounds better than that right now) and spending time with Kev-Kev.

I realize that I am sorta jumping all over the place with what I'm writing, you just have to try and understand that it's how my brain works.

I think my mind has run out of words to say though, so that is it for today. I'm going to go spend some quality time with my dogs, and the lake, and the outside air.

Maybe to start, I should tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Amanda Marie Miller. It's a boring name, but I really do like it. I have brown eyes, and hair. I have a bother for a brother, his name is Andrew. My mother is a teacher and my dad is a cop. He moved out the day before my 17th birthday. My relationship with him is slowly improving, but it's not great. My mom's name is Cecilia, which I think is elegant and lovely. My dad's name is Greg. I live with my mom and my brother, my room is in the basement. We have a small zoo, two dogs, Patsy and Smitty. Two cats, Gracie and Coco. A bald rat named Dwight, a Siamese fighting fish (that's a beta) two hamsters, Truffle and Cotton and a turtle, who we normally just call Turtle, even though his name is James.

I'm moving on for now because I don't really feel like talking about myself.

Right now I'm sitting.

My phone is next to me, and it's ringing, well actually it's buzzing, but I'm going to answer it.
It's a little bit cloudy outside, but still warm. I like it most when days are "gloomy." I don't really see them as gloomy though, just calm.

I have about a billion different thoughts running through my head right now, but I don't feel like sharing them really. I'm feeling sort of quiet and shy today, and I don't know why, because normally, I'm not quiet or shy.

I'm looking forward to hanging out with my honey later. He really completes and understands me. I told him I was going to make one of these blog. pages because he has one, I don't think he believed me though, we'll see how long it takes him to figure it out. ;)

Christopher Robbin is coming over to see me in a bit. He's my neighbor, has been for a good part of me life. He is a year younger than I am, we fight a lot really, but it's funny because we fight like brother and sister, and in a way, I really do love him, and he loves me, in a way. I promised him I would help him with his english homework.

I have a feeling this blog will mostly be about my days and what I am doing and whats going on, and my thoughts on things. I'm not a super creative person, I haven't written a story or anything like that in years, but we'll see. I'm thinking I'm gonna give in and go find my honey and start following his blog...hmmm.

Well, that is it for now. I hope my babbling wasn't super terrible.
