24 Thank You's For The Boy I Love

Words will never be able to fully capture how much I appreciate you, but I will continue to try.

24 Thank You's For The Boy I Love
Jenna Carey

We have been through the thick and the thin, the good and the bad, and every single time we come back on top. You are my shoulder to cry on, my favorite part of every single day, and my absolute best friend. After two amazing years, I have an infinitive list of things to thank you for, so I limited it to 24 and decided to publish it. And, in case you didn't catch on, there are 24 thank you's for the 24 months we've been together. Here goes...

Thank you:

1. For all of the dinner dates and the many more to come

While I love trying new places with you, nothing beats splitting boneless buffalo wings and brew pub pretzels at the Bee's. ;)

2. For not getting mad when I call you a million times in a row

3. For coming up with new nicknames for me on a daily basis

Even if they aren't always so charming (Larry loves you, Ron)

4. For listening to me complain about every single minor issue of my day

I swear that accounting assignment really was as bad as it sounded in the twenty minute rant I just went on.

5. For sometimes actually responding when I gossip about irrelevant drama

I know you don't care about my friend's relationship status with that new guy she's talking to, but you're my best friend and I tell you everything.

6. For doing your best to give me advice about situations you can't at all relate to

And, when you don't have all the answers, telling me everything will be okay always helps too.

7. For randomly complimenting me and putting a smile on my face

8. For making fun of me in the most endearing way

Like getting all of your friends to call me "Larry"...

9. For letting me make fun of you, too

10. For cooking dinner for me while I "supervise"

You make the best grilled chicken and homemade french fries :)

11. For driving me around everywhere

And wasting all of your gas on me (I swear I'll make it up to you)

12. For leaving the TV on at night because you know I can't fall asleep without background noise

And for waking up in the middle of the night to turn it off once I've finally fallen asleep

13. For dealing with my hair stuck to everything you own

It probably gets a little awkward when someone looks at your passenger seat asks if you have a dog and you have to say that it's from your girlfriend.

14. For including me in your friend group

And for having really cool friends

15. For inviting me to spend time with your family and making me feel welcome

16. For making an effort with my family, too

17. For bragging about me when I'm not around

It makes me blush a little bit, but I totally love it.

18. For letting me play that song that you hate just because I love it

And because you like to watch me dance like a fool in the passenger seat

19. For singing in the car with me and belting out your own special remixes when you don't know the words

I roll my eyes every time, but I really do think you're hilarious

20. For remembering small, insignificant things that I mention at random times and sometimes even forget about myself

It surprises me and amazes me how much you really do listen.

21. For always telling it like it is, even when it might not be what I want to hear

Because who wants a boyfriend that "yes"'s you to death. That's how I know you actually care.

22. For celebrating my proudest moments and my smallest victories with me

And for making a big deal out of my littlest accomplishments

23. For bringing out the absolute best version of me

24. For loving me unconditionally

Words will never be able to fully capture how much I appreciate you, but I will continue to try. Happy Two Years, Ronnie. I love you.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
