IMPORTANT: Broken Arrow

Dear Loves,
its been almost three years since I started Diet Brooke With Lime...
this blog documents so much.
You guys have been so amazing!
I love my followers and readers and commenters
but I kinda feel like I've outgrown my Diet Brooke With Lime stage.
the last few months i've changed a lot and I've been doing a life sweep of sorts.
Out with the old, in with the new!

But don't worry!
I am not leaving the blogging community!
I love blogging and you guys and I cant imagine a life without my blog honestly.
So I've started a new blog!!
New look, new name, new url
Same girl!

follow me over there,
I hate to see my blog without your lovely little picture in the follow section on the sidebar!
Broken Arrow will be my full time blog now.
I will no longer be running Diet Brooke With Lime but I will keep it open for nostalgic sake..

my best friend.

I have the best friend.
In the world.
I pretty much love her more than my life.
I wish she was with me every second of my life.
She just moved back to texas, so I get to see her.
All day. Every day.
I'm pretty stoked about it.
She's the best thing thats ever happened to me.
That's why I married her. Duh (:

The Koshe Project

Since I've been home The Koshe Project has been on my mind.
I worked with it the most in Ethiopia and to be honest these girls still have my heart.
I knew I was suppose to go back...
So I took a step out in faith.
Within the first week of being home I applied to volunteer for this project, and Wednesday I got a letter saying I am accepted.
Yep, I am going back to Ethiopia for two months!!!
Right now I am putting together funds.
I still need money for a plane ticket.
So if you know anyone who would like to help a struggling girl get to Ethiopia to help people, give them my email!

Learn more about each one of the amazing girls in this project here

dreamin of adventurous days....

So my first week.. well almost two weeks home have been extremely uneventful.
My car is currently getting some work done so I am stuck with these four walls, netflix and my laptop.
Thankfully I have some awesome tunes to keep me groovin, even when I'm bored out of my mind.
These two songs are currently on repeat.

caution, this one may offend a few of you.

I am currently on a mission to make everyday an adventure,
even ones stuck at home.
If you have suggestions please leave them :)

Little Letters

Dear God,
Your rad!
Keep on being you!

Dear Jeep,
Broken? really?
How dare you break my heart like this!?
This whole time I was away, I dreamt of me and you!
All the fun we were going to have!
Just me, you, the open road, and freedom!
We were going to do what we want, when we wanted!
Stay out all night, partying at concerts, harassing old friends.
You've really let me down.

Dear four walls,
You are driving me insane!

this weekend is looking pretty boring and uneventful for me
I hope yours is going better

Letters to myself

If I could write myself a letter then, this is what I'd say...
Dear Brooke in March,
Next month you're going to be embarking on an adventure.
Right now you think your fat, in six months you'll know what fat really feels like after eating snickers and cheesy bread everyday as your comfort food for six months, so shut up!
Right now you think your pale, when you get home in September, you'll be so pale you're turning pink, so again, shut up!
but I not envious of you for a couple reasons.
You make your choices based on fear, and you're basically afraid of everything.
You've never seen a gypsy village in Romania, tasted the night air of Germany from a beautiful tower where you can see the border of Poland and Czech, or enjoyed an authentic coffee ceremony in Ethiopia.
You've never met the amazing people I've met, been to the places I've been or experienced the crazy things I have.
Don't take anything for granted, trust, and never say no.
This trip really will be what you make it.
You'll meet new best friends and maybe even a cute boy near the end, who knows ;)
Strap yourself in young lady,
your in for the ride of your life.

Brooke in September
