Letters to my future husband #7

First, big news!!Me and the b/f are now living together! We are more than b/f- girlfriend. We have been together for over five years and it just felt right. This is it people, me and him are a forever thing!! And so this letter is meant for him and I hope that I can write more of these just for him.

Dear L,
Hi honey. First off, I have to say thank you. Thank you because you have shown me what it is like to love. Five years!!!5 freaking years,,and we are still together. When I first met you, I thought that it was just a campus thingy but we outgrew that. We have fought and broken up a few times. We have been through a lot, and by a lot: I mean a whole lot more than we could have ever imagined.

However, what I treasure most about our thingy is how we make each other laugh. You are funny and crazy. Your jokes crack me up! Even when am mad, it is very hard not to laugh at your crazy jokes. It makes it awkward for me to make a serious point or even be mad at you for more than a heartbeat. You must be very proud of that!!But, I hate that you like to startle me, something that am totally afraid of!

Baby, you make it easy for me to love you. You make it so much fun. You make me feel like a 3 year old. I can talk about anything with you. Whether its new businesses or crazy PMS. I love that I can be crazy, I can be myself around you! And you love me for who I am.
I do feel happy and honored to be with you!
Love you pumpkin, sweetpie, honey, darling, watermelon, sugar, and any other cute names you might think of!!

Always, M.
Ok, people, hope you have collected yourself after my big news. Its been 5 days now of living together and its been awesome, except the double amount of laundry.Anyway, I hope you are having a fabulous week and an amazing August!!

We Struck Gold: Weekend Update

Hey y’all!!I hope you all had a great weekend!No bragging but I had an awesome weekend and the climax of it all was my country striking gold in the Olympics. Ok. we were expecting some medals but when the races started and we kept loosing or getting the silver and bronze, everyone was a little disappointed. Some even lost hope. But not me. If you knew me, you would know that I never ever give up. I might feel disappointed for a minute or two but I always know that things will get better.
That is why I was over excited for the 3,000 Steeplechase since we always win that one. And the winner is kinda the funniest runner I’ve seen in a while. Ezekiel Kemboi. 
He is now kind of a hero around these parts. 
see what I told ya, funny!!Oh, and skinny too!
Moreover, we also won bronze and I believe we would have had a clean sweep of the medals had Brimin Kipruto not tripped in the last lap.
To say the least, am so happy and so proud of #TeamKenya. You might think am the one who won the medals. While they were running and sweating like hell, I was watching at the comfort of my house. But the cheering went on and on for a few hours. So, people thats a wrap for now. I would have talked about Saturday and how I spent it washing the hugest load of laundry but winning gold at the Olympics took over my life. 
Until tomorrow, when I get a hold of my excitement, Bye!
Go #TeamKenya

T-shirt Styled

If you really knew me, you would know that I looove t-shirts and I almost  wear them daily not unless am forced by circumstances. By circumstances, I mean having to go somewhere formal and I have to wear a blouse or something of the sort. I am overly comfortable in t-shirts and this has led to me being occasionally referred to as a tomboy!!Really people???? T-shirts are so comfy and so easy to wear!Does that make me a tomboy??? Anyway, thats a personal decision. Ok, I know am kind of (only a little) tomboyish. I like converse shoes too!That does not make my case easier!!But I hope the skinny jeans help!!!
So, today {av} chose a perfect theme for me. It was so easy to come up with this outfit!I love everything I threw in here and hope there is someone out there who feels me!!Feels me???I mean like, understands my style!!
Here you go:
