This Week's Roundup

Black X6, Phantom 👻

It’s my boyfriend’s turn to go car hunting and we’ve been visiting a few dealerships to survey some possible cars. At the end of the day, I’m happy with whichever car he ends up choosing 😊💕. We went to the BMW dealership yesterday and my boyfriend test drove the X6. The BMW X6 is a sports activity coupe (basically an SUV coupe) that feels and drives like a beast. The turbocharged inline-six cylinder engine does not mess around! Desiigner’s song, Panda features the X6 and I can see why! Does the white X6 look like a panda? 🐼

Fifty-Eight Months 💖

My boyfriend and I reached our 58 months last weekend. We enjoy celebrating our monthly’s by doing something extra special. So what if we’re cheesy or basic? He took me to the Cheesecake Factory because it has been a while since we dined there. We had some cocktails, grilled chicken sandwiches, and firecracker salmon.

Treat Yo’ Self 🎁

I try not to spend too much money these days because the reality of adulthood finally hit me. There are things I am trying to save up for in the long run. To keep my morale up, I decided to treat myself to some goods from Coach’s semi-annual sale. I bought a beechwood prairie satchel and a pair of sunglasses. I also ordered some sports attire from Victoria’s Secret as well.

Planting Daisies 🌼

When I came back from Atlanta three weeks ago, I decided to plant some daisies for fun. Out of the six seeds, five sprouted and are growing at a pretty good rate. Planting reminded me that patience can be rewarding. Speaking of plants, the lucky bamboos I bought two years ago have grown tremendously and I decided to leave it in the living room a while back. I’m considering making some terrariums in the near future because my mother has a lot of cute little succulents in the yard that deserves a nicer atmosphere.

Guardians at DCA 🎡

Disney California Adventures took down Tower of Terror and replaced it with Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout. The ride debuted yesterday but by the time my boyfriend and I arrived at the park, the wait time was 300 minutes long. I think we were more entertained by people who were dedicated to getting that first-day experience.

    BUT WAIT. DID YOU MAKE IT TO THE RIDE?! I want to go there just for a picture with Groot…. Hahahaha.

    Congrats on reaching 58 months, you two! I like that you still celebrate your monthaversaries. Chris and I still celebrate ours too and we get judged so badly for it… don’t be hatin’ people!

    And aw, I wanna see pictures of the daisies! I started planting sunflowers from seeds but totally neglected them so they died. I’m starting over again, balah.

    I love the video! Your vlogs are so entertaining! Have a good week ahead of you, Nancy 🙂

      Unfortunately not D:. The fast pass line is too crazy for us to even attempt. UGH, they even have Groot souvenir cups! It’s so adorbs ;~;.

      I don’t know what’s with people judging about celebrating monthaversaries! I say- you both are happy and deserve the celebration! Power to you :)~

      I’ll definitely share pictures when the daisies sprout in full :D.

      Have a good week as well, Eena ♥♥♥

    OMG, I want to go on the Guardians of the Galaxy ride, even though I really hate rides! I love Guardians and it sounds so awesome! I’m not surprised the queue was so big – hopefully people will get over it soon so you can try it!

    Congrats on making it to 58 months! It’s so cute that you celebrate all the monthlies too. I have no idea how many months me and Andy have been together. I’ll have to do the maths! Hope you both had a great time!

    Saving is hard, but it’s so worth it! Definitely need to treat yourself once in a while though!

    Ooooh! I love how you went with your boyfriend to help decide on his 🙂 It’s great that you had the chance to help him test cars out so he can get the one he likes the best. BMW is a good brand, and that’s all I know about it, haha!

    Congrats on being together for 58 months! That’s a while now 😀 The Cheesecake Factory date sounds delicious. The grilled chicken sandwich sounds so good. <3 I wish you two many more months and years of happiness!

    There is nothing wrong with treating yourself! I'm all for doing that within reason 🙂 The reality of adulthood can be rough, but the nice thing is that you can be your own boss and budget and spend however you want. 😀 The bag you chose is so cute!

    You have a green thumb compared to me. I seem to kill every plant that I touch . . . it's good you decided to try gardening for fun! Daisies are pretty, and I can so see them be a kind of flower you would like! If you ever do make that terramiums, do blog about it!

    That line is ridiculous. 300 minutes?! No, thanks. I can skip the hype and ride it when the queue is much shorter in the future XD But I have waited in crazy lines for something I really wanted before, so I can relate. But still . . . 300 minutes is a bit of an overkill!

    I bet it’s really exciting to help your boyfriend chose his new wheels 😉 We all know how much Nancy loves her cars! 😀

    I don’t think that’s cheesy or basic at all. In my previous relationship, I did it all the time and I really think it was a special time and should be celebrated like that every month IMO 😀 I’m so glad you had a good time – GO TEAM NANCY & NANCYS BOYFRIEND!!!!

    New sports attire YES. Especially VS. #treatyoselfalways

    I really enjoyed watching your Disney adventure! You’ve inspired me to take more videos >:)

    My roomie wanted to get a plant so one day one of our friends drove her to some place to get plants but they didn’t have anything she wanted. Then on a random day, that friend came back with a grow-it-yourself lavender kit for my roomie and a grow-it-yourself daisy kit for me. I have yet to plant my daisy because I’m afraid I’ll kill it! // Ahh it’s been so long since I’ve been to California Adventures. I’m not surprised that it was packed! I don’t think I could have waited in that line either 😛 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    That’s really neat that you and your boyfriend have your monthly celebration. And Congrats on the 58 months! That’s 2 away from the BIG 5!

    I think it’s also amazing that your lucky bamboo has grown so well after 2 years. Somehow I’ve always manage to kill them eventually. XD

    The food looks yummy!

    Congratulations on you and your boyfriend’s 58 week anniversary! 🙂

    Also, love the vlog you shared. I’ve always wanted to create a vlog. I hope we can see your daisies in future posts!

    holy guacamole 58 months! that’s almost, what.. 5 years! omg that’s amazing. i wish mine can last that long too and even longer. fingers crossed. also because heartbreaks are annoying to deal with and i don’t wanna deal with it lmao what a childish thing to say

    i’m jealous on how you can find it okay to treat yourself. i bought myself a 35 eyeshadow palette to treat myself after getting my first paycheck and i was left feeling guilty the next week. sigh. i’m always so critical towards myself like this haha

    i remember i tried planting mangoes and rambutans at my house and they failed. no fruits at all, lmao. gardening is def not for me. it’s not me the one who end up watering the plants so yeah, i can’t be bothered with plants…although i admit, a house with indoor plants is just so relaxing.

    i never went to disneyland but i know about the tower of terror. that kind of sucks though since tower of terror sounds so interesting imo. it’s that kind of adrenaline rush ride that i’m so interested in even though my legs would probably turn into jellies if i were there on the spot.

    Aw I love that you celebrate monthaversaries! That is the cutest thing I’ve ever heard. You guys have been together for a while! I love your photos from the Cheesecake Factory! We have one in my town too and there’s always 1-2 hour wait because it’s so popular!

    Can’t wait to see what car your boyfriend picks out! Dan happens to be obsessed with cars! BMWs are so nice too.

    Congratulations on 58 months! It’s really sweet that you both remember to take that time to honor your union. 🙂

    Pictures of the daisies soon? I envy people with green thumbs. Everything I plant just dies. :O

    58 months is a long time! Congratulations on you and your boyfriend, and the possible new car! I am not a car enthusiast and have only recently learned how to drive so I would prefer not driving anything too fast (the car you’re looking at sounds fast haha) because there were times when I listen to car music that hypes me up and I end up going over the speed limit. Luckily, I live quite far (think countryside) with lanes surrounded by trees/grass and mostly empty. So I haven’t hit anything yet and hopefully, won’t in the future.

    Saving money that comes with adulthood sometimes sucks because I thought when I was young that earning money meant spending it on fun things haha! So treat yo self! 🙂
