she Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: My Forever

There are two types of best friends: Blogging Best Friends {BBF} and Real Life Best Friends who each happen to blog {that one doesn't get an abbreviation}.  Alyssa, from My Forever, is my best friend in real life who also just started a blog.  We met the first day of freshman year of high school and have been inseparable ever since. I could show you some terribly hilarious photos of the two of us, but for now we'll stick with this one of us at Disneyland for our Senior Trip:

Wanna know something exciting?!  She's getting married!  Her fiance is in Afghanistan serving our country, but when he returns there will be a summer wedding full of blues and yellows and all things beautiful. I can hardly wait. I've already started thinking of what to say in my little toast, but don't tell Alyssa (;  For now, let's hear what she's is loving and what she's not:

Hey readers! This is Alyssa over at My Forever and I couldn't be more excited to be featured for Michaela's She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not. Let's get Started!

She Loves Me:

1. Pretty Little Liars. This has got to be one of my favorite shows on TV right now. The mystery always keeps me guessing! Who do you think A is?

2. The fishtail braid. How adorable and easy is this hairstyle? It's definitely my I'm-having-a-bad-hair-day-and-I'm-too-lazy-to-fix-it hairstyle.
3. My Ugg boots. Say what you want, haters, but they're so comfy and warm. I can't go a day without them (Especially in the 15 below weather we're having!)
4. Yellow. How adorable is this bathroom? Love the stripes. Love the sink. Love the mirror. 

5. HE IS WE. Literally the best band ever. I know Michaela is obsessed just like me so go here for a listen! You won't regret it, I promise.

6. Kyle Jordan Blackmer. AKA the best fiance ever. He's deployed in Afghanistan right now and he is my world.

She Loves Me Not:

1. Nicki Minaj. Yuck. Can we say trash?
2. Seafood. Yuck. If it swims or lives in the ocean, it is not for me.
3. Skins on MTV. I don't understand the hype on this show. I watched it and found it really, reallly weird and boring. I don't know anyone whose high school years were like this.
4. Clutter. Ugh, just so unappealing. Except in the show Hoarders, then it is actually interesting in a gross way.
5. Kansas University. Really. Who likes the Jayhawks? Nobody. Kansas State Wildcats forever.
Thanks for stopping by! Stay beautiful!
Love always,

Thanks for sharing, girl! If you haven't checked out My Forever {titled after a He Is We song} make sure to stop by today!

Love and xoxo,


  1. Alyssa, you're a doll! Loving the likes!! That yellow bathroom is full of sunshine.

  2. Great list! I have been wanting to check out Pretty Little Liars, I heard its great! I too love my Uggs, no shame at all. Hate Nikki M, could she be any trashier?

  3. I love PRETTY LITTLE LIARS! Amazing show and I hope your fiance is doing okay!! I'm praying for him. My fiance is in the Navy and not deployed yet!

  4. Thanks for the sweet comments you left on my blog. I agree Uggs are a must...can't live in Chicago without them. I'll have to check out Pretty Little Liars:).

  5. i love these series...

    truly truly do.


  6. Too cute you are! ;) I am loving that Pretty Little Liars myself...I watch it on Hulu at work the day after the episode airs -- shhhhh! Don't tell my boss! I feel the same way about clutter -- and Hoarders! LOL! Best wishes to you and Kyle for your wedding and praying he returns home safe and sound. God Bless the USA.

  7. I think we need Fish braid tutuorial video, Michaela!!! (I don't know how to do it, and it looks so nice!)

  8. I agree, Uggs are a definite must during the winter! So comfy and warm.
    Stay strong during the deployment, and I hope your soon to be hubby has a safe return! I know how deployments can be, I've been through two! My thoughts and prayers are with you two :)

  9. i love these! theyre always so funny and make me think of what i would choose!

  10. Alyssa sounds like a sweetie just like you Miss Michaela :) Loved her likes!! xoxo

  11. I will pretty much have to agree with everything on the 'not' list... yep... although I haven't seen Skins. I have seen the previews and just from those alone I don't get it either. I don't remember HS being anything remotely close to that.

    Happy Wednesday! :)

  12. I love Pretty Little Liars!!! She has great taste in TV!

  13. love this musician! i'm about to go youtube some more songs...and to check out your blog! you and your man are too sweet! :)

  14. I know a couple of people have already said that uggs are a must, and I agree. Too bad all the haters are too busy judging instead of realizing they're like the most comfy and warm things you can put on your feet. :)

  15. She has the best loves and love me nots! (Except for seafood, that's my favorite!)
    So excited for you to be MOH! You're going to be incredible!

  16. Michaela and Alyssa - I can see that you are soul sisters. 2 gorgeous sisters.

    Hope you fiance is fine and that you get to connect soon.

    Great list!

    Warm hugs to you both.


  17. Great list, Alyssa! I really like Pretty Little Liars too! Thought I was the only one : ) Your engagement photos are adorable!! Off to listen to "He is We" and check it out!! xo

  18. I'm loving the braid, too! I really need to try it out on my hair! Great list!

  19. I think A is Allison. I read some [book] summary and apparently Allison had a twin and supposedly it was the twin that was killed, not her? I don't know, but the mystery of A keeps the show going!

    I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to do a fishtail braid! :o(

    I also think that Nicki Minaj is super overrated.

    Great post!



Thank you for stopping by! If you have a specific question, please email me at I always reply to emails! Have a blessed day! xoxo
