Happy Valentines Day To My Sweet Bee!!

It is officially the Queen Bee Couples 3rd Valentines Day together, what a 3 years it has been! Over the last 3 years our relationship has grown and developed into a beautiful relationship built on love, a love that I know will last forever.

Mr.Bee and I celebrated our first Valentines Day with friends in the mountains, we exchanged gifts and by my surprise Mr.Bee did the most creative little thing. He wrote a "note" with blanks, framed it and gave me a box of Candy Hearts (ones that he had picked out specifically for the note) and I was to fill in the blanks. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this Valentines Day gift and will NEVER EVER forget how cute Mr.Bee was as I filled in the blanks!

Our second Valentines Day was also spent in the mountains with friends!! I don't remember much about this date, but I am almost certain Mr.Bee made me feel special just as he does everyday :)

As our 3rd Valentines Day together begins I am excited to see what tonight holds! Mr.Bee is cooking dinner for me, yum and he has a teeny tiny gift since I gave him the Love Dare early! I do know that our love flows deeper than ever before and that this Valentines Day means much more because of the grande amounts our love has grown this year specifically. I believe our relationship has taken leaps and bounds into a different realm of relationships, as we have encountered and conquered so many obstacles this year.

Mr.Bee, I hope you know how much I adore you, how much I truly love you deep down, and I hope you know that we have a love that will not waiver and a love that will never stop..our love is forever. With that being said, Mr.Bee will you be my Valentine this year, next year and until death do us part?

Another Day, Another Dollar...Another Weekend..THANK HEAVENS :)

Boy oh Boy, has work been stressful lately OR WHAT? Maybe it isn't just me that feels as though work is going one million different ways all in one day. Whewie! Thank heavens for my Mommy Bee because without her, I am pretty sure Friday evening I would have TOTALLY lost it. She let me absolutely let loose on the phone for an hour and knew exactly the right things to say to put me at ease. No idea what I would do without her? Mr.Bee was a bit concerned about me sitting in the car in the drive-way for an hour, so he brought me a snack..gah I love that man <3 Mr. Bee & I went out and about with some friends Friday evening and I certainly needed to let loose for an evening! It was a lot of fun & of course Mr.Bee enjoyed being out and about with 3 women ;)

As for Saturday, Mr. Bee and I traveled all around Charlotte to check out some real estate. Looking for a new home isn't as fun as I was hoping, not to mention we are incredibly picky. After looking at 5/6 houses on Saturday we were feeling aggravated, frustrated and let down. I even told Mr.Bee that I wasn't so sure that we could do this without killing one another..HA! After a stressful morning, we headed to good ol' Trinity to see my Princess niece shine on-stage! She makes me so proud and has no idea how much I adore her, she truly is a girl after my own heart! My precious nephew hugged and loved on me like I was a celebrity once again..and I loved every single minute of it!

When Sunday rolls around I dread it a bit due to the fact that I always hate for the weekend to end and this weekend was just the same. Mr.Bee and I went house hunting once again, this time we actually found a few homes to put on our "list," a much better outcome than Saturday had! We went to dinner together and chatted about life, about everything we have to look forward to and I am simply so so blessed to have him in my life, he is my very best friend and supporter!

Now about those Grammy awards, I LOVE LOVE LOVE to see what everyone is wearing and Mr.Bee loves to see the lights and audio in action since that is job as well! A match made in Grammy Heaven! My favorite performance? Well I have 2, I LOVED Bruno Mars going back into time and I LOVE the Avett Brothers so both take the fav prize for the night for me!

The Love Dare..Days 1,2 & 3

As I was grocery shopping at Super Targ on Monday night, or well just shopping in Super Targ. I happened to stroll through the book section. In the book section I stumbled upon "The Love Dare," something Mr.Queen Bee and I have been talking about doing for months. So I took it upon myself, The Queen Bee to purchase both of us a copy and for an Early Valentines present gave it to my sweet Bee when I returned home. To my surprise, Mr.Queen Bee was just as excited as I was & so it began. On Tuesday, February 8th The Queen Bee Clan began on the Love Dare journey and as of Day 3, which is today I can already tell a difference in the way our relationship is developing.

On Day 1 we had to be patient with one another, this is something that I lack..clearly since I am the Queen Bee but something I agreed to work on. On the other hand, patience is something Mr.Queen Bee has an abundance of..he has to be patient to deal with me on regular basis. Day 1 went pretty good, no serious meltdowns, no fighting and lots of patience and so Day 2 came about. The dare for Day 2 was to be kind, lucky for me..I read my dare chapters the night before and I had a heads up on my Kind act or well acts for Day 2.

Mr.Queen Bee is pretty good at getting up in the mornings and making coffee for us, as well as taking Puppy Bee out to on Day 2 I made it a point to drag myself out of bed, stroll to the kitchen and make us our coffee. I also took Mr.Queen Bee some gym clothes since he is pretty good at leaving those behind in his morning frenzy. Little did I know that we would end up going on a spur of the moment date night instead of going to the gym. No complaining here though, because I loved every minute of it! So yes Day 2 turned out to be pretty great.

At the end of Day 2 I felt as though things were finally going in the right direction and I realized just how much we needed this Love Dare to remind ourselves the amount of love we have for each other. I can assure you that no matter what I am deeply passionately in love with Mr.Queen Bee but I also can assure you that after this Love Dare the love I have for Mr.Bee will of exploded into a completely different love, one that no one else will be able to EVER replace.

With that said, Let's see what Day 3 has in store..the Dare is to buy something for Mr.Queen Bee that shows you were thinking of them..yes Mr.Queen Bee got a few things, I like to spoil him..what can I say <3

Oopsies..Life Got TOO Busy..

Okay, Okay I have been a bit slack on this whole blog idea. My life is so incredibly busy lately. Working 40 hour work weeks, attempting to be social and trying to spend time with Mr.QueenBee and my family is a full-time job and more! Over the last couple of weeks I have managed to squeeze in a small celebration for Mr.Queen Bees birthday, seeing as he was skiing it up in CO for his actual birthday! A weekend getaway with Mommy Bee & Sissy Bee to the Biltmore House. A much needed ladies weekend with my very best friends and a weekend that I hope to cherish forever. A very special weekend that I hope to spend with Mom Bee & Sissy Bee for the rest of our lives.

I also squeezed in going out on a limb and trying out for a Pro-Dance team! I was a complete and total EMOTIONAL WRECK, to say the least! Mr. Queen Bee went to enjoy a guys night in the mountains and I stayed home to prepare for try-outs. I slept about 4 hours and woke up around 5:15am, by 8:00am this Queen Bee was getting all dolled up for try-outs. By 11am I had arrived at the try-out location and my insides were totally turned inside out and upside down, all at once. Try-outs lasted roughly 4 hours and I was exhausted as I drove to the mountains to reunite with my sweet Mr.Queen Bee & our fun friends! Thank goodness I had a LOT of company on Saturday night, or I would have completely LOST IT waiting to hear who made the cut. I ALMOST lost it on Sunday as I waited to see if my name would be on that list or not..LUCKY FOR ME THE QUEEN BEE..MADE THE TEAM! Practices started on Tuesday & now I am officially a little more busy, but I cannot wait to dance again..dancing is my PASSION!! WOOOOHOOOO!
