You heard it people, and no I am not making it up. He surprised Lauren and rented out an entiiiirrre movie theater just for the two of them!

Both new additions to the family, they recently adopted precious Willa Gray from Uganda and Lauren gave birth to baby Ada James! Talk about family goals.

22 New Things That I Want To Try Now That I'm 22

A bucket list for my 22nd year.


"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

1. Go sky diving.

What's crazier than jumping out of a plane? (Although I'll probably try indoor skydiving first.)

2. Go cliff jumping/diving.

I must be the only Rhode Islander who hasn't gone to Jamestown and jumped off a cliff.

3. Ride in a hot air balloon.

Up, up and away.

4. Try out skiing.

Cash me in the next Olympics, how bout dat.

5. Try out snow boarding.

Shawn White, I'm coming for you.

6. Go bungee jumping.

Because at least this time I'll be attached to something.

7. Go to Portugal.

I mean I'm Portuguese so I have to go at some point, right?

8. Go to Cape Verde.

Once again, I'm Cape Verdean so I have to go.

9. Vist one of the seven wonders of the world.

I mean hey, Egypt's on, my bucket list.

10. Try out surfing.

It's only natural that somebody from the Ocean State knows how to surf.

11. Learn a new langauge.

Because my little bit of Portuguese, Spanish and Latin isn't cutting it anymore.

12. Travel to a state that I've never been to before.

Fun fact: I've only been to 17 of the 50 states.

13. Go paddle boarding.

Pretty boring but I've never done it.

14. Go scuba diving.

I'm from the Ocean State so I guess I should see the ocean up close and personal.

15. Learn how to line dance.

There's actually a barn in my state that does line dancing, so this one will definitely get crossed off.

16. Go kayaking.

All this water around me and I haven't done a lot of the water activites.

17. Stay the night in a haunted hotel room.

I bet if I got my friends to come with me, it would be like the Suite Life of Zach and Cody episode, minus the ghost coming out of the wall but you never know.

18. Get my palms read.

Because who doesn't want to know their future.

19. Go to a medium.

Like a medium that can communicate with people that have died.

20. Take a helicopter ride.

Air plane: check Helicopter:....

21. Sleep under the stars.

Because sleeping in a tent is more like glamping than camping

22. Just to try new things in my everyday life.

Whether it's trying a new restaurant, getting something different at my usual restaurants, changing my usual style, going on the scary rides at amusement parks, and bringing things I used to do back into my life now.

I've been single my whole life, And this is what I want you to know

A letter from your friendly neighborhood single girl


Dear person reading this,

Look at that-- a clickbait title. Hello, fellow person who I'm sure has had a relationship so you clicked on this article. Yes, I have been single my whole life, almost 2 decades of it. And this seems like a clickable, exciting topic; I have kept the idea to write about this topic on the top of my head for a long time. But the more I thought about my singleness, throughout high school and into my first year of college, I am struck by how much of an important fact about my life.

I have found quite the opposite than the normal conclusion of this sad, lonely fact to others that I have not had a boyfriend or even a date. I've found that those who care or make you feel like less for your ability to play a game and take the time for a relationship like it's something to be won or achieved, like to be in a relationship is a level in growing up that must be achieved to have worth. They are just as wrong as any other measurement determining your worth.

Being the single girl is not a breeze. As a girl especially, you have to learn to be tough, to dismiss the pity that comes from people who know that you've always been single as well as the chilling rationalization from women and men about why you weren't "chosen."

But being the girl without a boyfriend is only a problem if you let it define who you are. And while I am bad at many things, including getting a boyfriend, I am aware that there is so much more to me than that. My real friends believed this too, and this helped me realize that the most important thing I learned was being single anything to overcome.

Through the years, I've seen girls break who they are to shove themselves into the puzzle piece that fits with the boy they want. I've watched girls give up fun evenings because they had to find a date, which forced and complicated an otherwise fun night. But I've also watched girls grow in relationships and become more trusting through the supportive nature of their relationship.

I have never learned how to unlock a boyfriend. But that isn't the point. I've learned the true place that romantic relationships play in any life, which is an accessory. They, by all means, can make you happy and improve your life, but they are not a necessary part of who you are. You are not more or less of a person when you are with someone else. You can be whole on your own. Life isn't about finding prince charming; it's about living your best life, and maybe you'll find someone who wants to be a part of an awesome life you've already begun building.

Thanks for reading,

Your friendly neighborhood single girl
