Life has been crazy lately.

I didn't even post about our amazing 1 year anniversary trip! Well, we went to FL and then a cruise. It was just what we needed. It was the perfect end of summer getaway, and a great way to celebrate being married for a year. I can't believe we've been married so long--it hardly seems like we've been married long!

Carlos gradumatated. 

So proud of him! #byualum

We got Hobbes. 

He's a red heeler/mini Australian shepherd mix. He is a cutie! We love him so much! It's been weird to have a lil' dog, mostly because we didn't really have one growing up. Luckily Carlos is a resident pup-expert, so we have it all covered!

We interviewed at Cornbelly's. 
Carlos was a poor lil' graduate with  no job for just a couple of weeks, so we decided to go to Cornbelly's to see if we could get a job there (extra money!), we got the job, but right as we started training, Carlos....

Got a Real Kid JOB!
After a couple of hits and misses (as it always goes when job searching) Carlos got an awesome opportunity to work in a lab! He pretty much does what he studied for his major! #microbiology I'm so proud of him, and we will be able to save up so he can take the OAT (for optometry school) and interviews for schools that accept him.

I Turned 24. 
I feel real old. It was a fun day full of family and friends. Here's to 24 being a wonderful year!

We Joined A Kickboxing Club
I finally made Carlos join a kickboxing club. It is awesome. Seriously, the workouts are intense, and I am pooped after I go. I'm trying to do a 60 day challenge, but my knee got tweaked and I was out for a week. #notfun

We Will Be Skiing This Year
Yes. Carlos got me passes to Sundance this year. He is going to learn to ski, and we are gonna have a blast! Yahoo!

Seriously, life is good here in the Grandela Household. I couldn't ask for more. #blessings

A Review of Every Single Candy Corn Flavor 2013

Guys. Guys.


Seriously. I am freaking obsessed with CANDY CORN. I can't say it enough. #candycorn #cornmadeofcandy #oktoberfest

There are lit'raly a million flavors of candy corn on the market. Trust me, I've been a lookin'!

And since I'm such a peach, I've tried em all, and I'll give you the low-down on each.

Starburst candy corn. When I first saw this, I thought, this could not be. I'm a big fan of the Starburst jelly beans--so I thought--this is insanity! However, it didn't disappoint. At first bite, it was really weird--and tart! I could only eat like 3 in one sitting, but it was a fun change.

Brach's Pumpkin Spice candy corn. With the craze of the pumpkin spice, you can't go wrote with these candy corns! :) When you first bit the candy corn, it's a whole lot of spice and when you are done with it, it's a whole lotta pumpkin. It's a great way to curb your crave for pumpkin spice. However, the taste might remind you of a candle. . .

Brach's Indian Corn. Eh. I'll eat this one, but my heart doesn't jump for joy when I see it. It's an okay flavor, but maybe because I am into the crazy flavors. 

Brach's Carmel candy corn. This was a very flavorful candy corn--I think they should have named it Dulce De Leche candy corn--to give it that exotic flair! I liked it, but I'll definitely pick other flavors over it. 

Brach's S'mores candy corn. If you want to go the chocolate route, this is the candy corn for you. I thought it was going to be sick, but it was surprisingly different. The tip of the candy corn actually tasted like graham crackers! Weird!

Zachary Apple Cider candy corn. This was one of the pricier candy corns I picked up. But one of my favorites. It has this "melt in your mouth" quality that I can't put down. I had to put these in another room, because I could easily eat a whole container in one sitting.

Brach's Carmel Apple candy corn. This. is. my. favorite candy corn flavor of ALL time! Seriously. You can't get better than this flavor. This year, I've had a hard time finding it, I've hit up Wal-mart, Harmon's, and Walgreeens. I still haven't indulged in this amazing flavor this year--but it is the best of the candy corn flavors--I know it!
