Happy Valentine's Day

Emphasis on Valentine's. Usually I celebrate Single Awareness Day on February 14 but Ian made it really a great day this year. I was getting ready for work when I heard a knock on the door. I let my brother answer it since he was right by the front door. He came downstairs and said that someone was at the door for me, which confused me because that rarely happens. I went upstairs to find a girl holding a vase full of yellow roses (my favorite). I had a hunch as to who sent them, which was confirmed by the fact that it was addressed to "Cori Jane" (he's the only one that calls me that) and of course, as soon as I read the note, it was obvious. I was seriously freaking out! I didn't even know what to do! I was shaking like crazy but at the same time I was so happy and couldn't quit smiling. It made my whole day! Thanks Ian for making it so amazing! You're the best!

My beautiful roses

Me being super happy about it.

"Nienie Dialogues"

I love love love this picture!

I read about this on one of my friends' blogs today and I thought it was really cool. It's a blog about Stephanie Nielson and her husband Christian, who were in a near-fatal plane crash last August. "Mr. Nielson", as she endearingly refers to him, suffered burns on 30% of his body and a broken back and Stephanie received severe burns on 80% of her body. She writes from time to time about her recovery process. I admire the faith of this woman and her husband. She has such a positive outlook on life and a real appreciation for "the little things" in life that we take for granted every day. I would only hope that I would do the same if I were in her position. Check it out. You may just get completely addicted like I did!

More adventures in Argentina

This picture makes me smile every time I look at it. :D
And yes that's totally a bat on his leg...
All I have to say is,
"Simple minds... Simple pleasures"


It's taken me way too long to write about this but I had a girl's night out with Melissa and Brianne on Tuesday. I seriously wish we hadn't waited so long to go out! Hopefully the three of us will take it as a lesson to not let our lives get to busy for each other. As soon as we sat down, I just looked at the people sitting at the tables next to us and was like, "Oh, poor people," because I knew we would be so crazy and laugh incredibly loud, which of course we did. We talked about everything. Our hopes, our dreams, and our plans for the future. It just made me realize how much I really love those girls and was, I felt like, the beginning of a new relationship for the three of us. I mean, we've been friends for years, but we're all kind of at different crossroads in life right now and it was good to realize that we have each other's support in whatever lies ahead.
