Today's the Day!

So I can barely contain my excitement - Kevin is coming to visit TONIGHT!
I've been counting down the days since he bought the plane tickets and now it's finally here. I'm charging up the camera and making a list of everything we simply MUST do together. Here's what I have so far:

1. Hug for a long time
2. Eat dinner at Cenare for our anniversary and my birthday
3. Go to Austin to visit his family
4. Watch GLEE!
5. Hang out with our cool friends
6. Swap music
7. Eat at Spoons Yogurt
8. Sleep all day on Sunday
9. Watch Friends together
10. Carve pumpkins!

I can't even tell you how thrilling this week(end) is going to be. It's been two months since we've seen each other in real life and it's so exciting. He leaves New York after his two midterms and he should get here around 9:30 tonight! I'm super bummed out because I can't pick him up at the airport for the epic "Welcome Home!" embrace in public, but our dear friend Jenna is doing the honors (just no funny business). This will give him an hour to get used to being on the ground again before I get home and take care of #1 on the list above.

Did I mention how stoked I am?! Are there too many exclamation points in this post? Well I don't care, because my boyfriend's coming home!(!!!!)

What are you excited about this weekend?

So many exciting things are about to happen!
Some things I'm loving right now...

1. My New "My Little Pony," Scootaloo. She has a side ponytail:

2. Mail from Kevin (love of my life):

3. My new headboard my mom made me for my bed, along with my cool reading lights on the wall (the fabric on the duvet cover and headboard is from an Orla Kiely tablecloth):

4. My pencil sharpener/paper shredder hybrid (shaped like an elephant):

5. The "Couple's Couch" at Mugwalls, along with the cool lamp above it:

6. My fun shelves with even more things I love on them:

7. FoundPaperCo's beautiful and spunky vintage paper:

8. Owls - any and all:
