Endless Bliss | Happy Lifestyle Blog: A Quarter of a Century.

A Quarter of a Century.


I wish I could tell you I went crazy this weekend, partying it up and celebrating being a quarter of a century, but that's a lie. I actually had a pretty mellow weekend. I went out to dinner with my family and Jon on Friday, and afterward, we went bowling. It was the first time that all of us had been bowling together, and it was a lot of fun. I love bowling even though I'm horrid at it. We managed to get two games in, and unfortunately, Jon won both of them. In our defense, he took a bowling class in college, so his score shouldn't even count.

Glow bowling with red and green lights cause Christmas.

I spent the rest of the weekend being pampered by Jon. I seriously am so lucky to have a guy as amazing as him to call my boyfriend. He's my forever, and I'm excited to spend the rest of my life with him. We went shopping on Saturday and ate some sushi (aka my favorite food) at Hana. Then we spent the night doing Christmas-y things: wrapping presents, hanging up the stockings, watching Christmas with the Kranks

For the record, Jon hates doing Christmas things, so I took advantage of my birthday weekend to get him to do Christmas things with me. Yesterday, he brought me breakfast in bed, and we had an overall lazy day. It was perfect. 

24 was a pretty good year for me. Shall we relive? 

I adopted Molly, and it was pretty much the best decision I ever made. She's brought so much happiness into my life, and I'm happy I was able to do the same for her. She's come out of her shell so much since I adopted her, and I love discovering different things about her personality everyday. 

January was also a major month for my blog, because I changed my name from d'Asti at Tiffany's to Endless Bliss. I definitely think the change had a positive impact on my blog, and I can't imagine it being named anything else.

This month was full of love, not only because of Valentine's Day, but also because of Jon's birthday. We were still in a short distance relationship, living an hour away from each other, but Jon and I were able to see each other a lot in February, which I was so grateful for. One of my favorite days was when we celebrated Mardi Gras together. That was so much fun!

March was an exciting month for me at work. Both of our hotels won awards from the brand, and I was tasked with putting together a last minute party for the entire staff to celebrate. It was stressful and fun, but I think everyone had a fun time. I also threw a surprise party for my co-worker's partner, and it was a success! Special shout-out to Pinterest for giving me so many ideas. 

I moved out of the apartment with my friend, Amanda, and into Jon's and my first apartment together. I lived by myself for a month before Jon moved in with me. It was an adjustment for Molly, but she loved having a yard to run around in.

...or to sunbathe in.

Also, my sister went to senior prom, and I felt really old. She looked gorgeous though.

Speaking of sister, she graduated from high school, and my brother came into town for the occasion. He works as a fireman in the Air Force, and he's currently stationed in Hawaii. It's been years since I've seen him and even longer than that since all three of my mom's kids have been altogether, so it was a very special few days filled with so much bliss. This was also the first time Jon and my brother met, so huge deal.

We're a pretty short family.

Jon moved in with me, and we were officially living together this month. It was the start of a fun adventure and a huge step in our relationship. 

Also, my girls and I took our annual vacation to Gulf Shores. It was a blissful few days of toes in the sand and Strawberitas in my hand.

EUROPE! Sister and I embarked on our European adventure. Every second was amazing, and I'm ready to take another international vaca ASAP!

This was a hard month for me, only because it was hard for me to get back to reality after being in Europe for two weeks, but I tuckered on. I was in a parade with puppets created by Wayne White, which was so much fun, but also hurt my arms. 

I took my first real trip to New Orleans, which also happened to be my first ever business trip. I gave a presentation on social media and explored the streets of New Orleans. 

I also got a haircut, which is only monumental because it was my first ever so-called "trendy" haircut, and I cut A TON of hair off. Writing this reminds me that I really need to get another haircut, because now it's growing out of whack. 

I competed in the Office Olympics with my job, and we got "Dead Ass Last." In our defense, we got there late because no one ever sent us any emails or paperwork, and we missed our first event. I also bought a record player, which I bought on the day I found out that Blogcation was canceled. I used some of the money that was supposed to go to that endeavor.

I went on a road trip with my sister, and our first stop was to Austin. We went to the Texas Teen Book Festival, our second year in a row doing so. I met some of my favorite authors and learned so much. It fueled my passion for writing and got me excited to write my first novel. I also got to meet up with one of my friends from a camp I worked at a few years ago. It was such a fun and hilarious reunion.

Our second stop was to Dallas where we went to our first ComicCon and met James and Oliver Phelps. Pretty much the best day ever.

Speaking of writing, I finished my first novel thanks to NaNoWriMo. I still have yet to read through the whole thing, but once I do pick it up again, I'm hoping to work towards getting an agent and looking at publishing options. 

I had a lovely Thanksgiving with my family, and I also hosted my first ever Friendsgiving, which was a lot of fun. We had a ton of delicious food.

Still happening, but I'll let you know.

After reliving the year through this post, I must say that 24 was an awesome age filled with lots of fun adventures. I hope to go on so many more adventures as a 25-year-old, starting with Supernatural Con in Houston next month.

    I'm terrible with bowling too. :[ Back in 2008, I bowled a strike(!) and the entire machine shut down, taking with it the only evidence I'd ever have of not sucking (for just that one round). ;_; I wholeheartedly agree that his score should not count, hahah. :P

    I also love your recap of the year! :] I used to do one of these at the end of every year on my old-old blog! I may have to start it up again--it's fun looking back on the highlights of each month! :]

  22. Your Welcome. So happy the package came right on time for your birthday. Glad you liked everything. :)

  24. Yay! I'm so happy it started working for you. I don't know why it was going crazy! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. Your bowling story is so hilarious! Omg! Haha. I loved looking back at my year! It was a lot of fun to relive these moments.

  25. Happy belated birthday! I'm a little late but better late than never, right?
    Haha, I hope you had a wonderful and memorable birthday! It looks like you had a lot of fun with your family. Your mom looks so cute haha.

    I love the recap that you did of this year! It's fitting that you're born right before Christmas/New Year so it's perfect for you to be able to start at January up until December. And it's cool that I've followed you/your blog for the past year or so now so reading through your recap made me feel like I was reliving moments in your life... I hope that doesn't sound creepy haha. I just feel like I know you because of your blog haha.

    Well anyway, I hope that 25 is a good year for you! [:

  26. Thanks so much, Kriselle! It's so awesome to have loyal readers like you, and that's so not creepy! Haha. This has definitely been an eventful year, and I'm happy I was able to relive it. I wanted to do a recap of my year for the new year, but then I thought it would still be relevant since it's December! You're so awesome, Kriselle! Thanks for everything! :)

  27. Happy birthday! I love the recap of the year, such an awesome idea! Also I can't believe I know someone that has written a novel! I cannot wait to read it! I also can't wait to see what you do with 2015!

  28. Thanks so much, Emily! I can't believe I've actually written a novel! Crazy! I think 2015 is going to be an awesome year!

  29. Happy Happy Happiest Birthday!! It seems like you've had such a wonderful year!

  30. Happy birthday, Tiffany!
    2014 seems like a blast for you! So many great adventures and accomplishments!
    Hope 2015 will be better too! ;)
