Hump Day

23 May

Hey everyone!

I’m having one of those days where it doesn’t matter what you try to do –  you fail miserably. After a while I gave up and decided not to try anything but it still led to me sitting there miserably..

Maybe it’s just me but I’m one of those people who can’t just have a bad day. I attempt as many ways as possible to turn it around and make it get better and thank goodness for my persistence because here I am feeling like I’m back on my feet and ready to keep going!

I have to admit it was NOT an easy process and for a while there I didn’t really have an option to make anything better. Once I was done work for the day and Brian got home I turned off the computer, put my phone down, and took a shower. Part of me being miserable was literally feeling disgusting from all the humidity and chasing after little girls today. After scrubbing down I felt fresh and clean, ate some food, and pulled out the sweet tea 🙂 Nothing makes a terrible day better than some awesome sweet tea!

Another thing that always seems to get my mind off whatever is bugging me is some good music. I turned Pandora on my Taylor Swift station and got to organizing my desk so I have a place to get things done and feel accomplished again.

It doesn’t take much for me to feel bogged down with a bunch of little miscellaneous things to do and putting them off is just plain torture because they keep adding up! I cleared off my desk, made a pile, and knocked one thing out at a time. I still have a little pile next to me but the important things are done and I’m already feeling like there’s a weight lifted off my shoulders.

Things are starting to look up and I still have three hours left in the day to enjoy!

Here’s to hoping your bad days turn around fast!

Thanks for stopping by,

Love Always,


Daily Life: The Notebook Begins

29 May

Okay, so I am not exactly sure what happened to me last night. It might have been the three cups of caffeine that I drank (I haven’t had caffeine in at least a month) or it might have been pure excitement and inspiration but I went into crazy mode! For those of you who don’t know crazy mode, let me explain.

You know that feeling when one idea leads to another and then you have a list of things you want to get or do to make it happen. Then you have a few questions that might involve doing a little research. Then you have this plan that sounds fantastic and a time limit and budget. Then on top of that you get this completely random totally off subject idea about something else. Then start planning and fantasizing about that. Next thing you know your mind is going in a million directions and you want to do it all!! Now!!

That was my crazy mode. It was so crazy that I couldn’t get any sleep. So like everyone suggest when you have a million things on your mind and all you want to do is sleep.. I wrote them down in a notebook but somehow that suggestion that is sure to work doesn’t. I find myself laying in bed going over everything I wrote down again and again yet still awake.

After finally falling asleep at 1:30 last night I woke up at 5:30 a.m. ready to go! I got this burst of energy like it was time to get up and get it started. Me being the person who daydreams, plans my day, budgets, and does some serious thinking in the shower – I thought that might be the perfect way to start the day. Nope. I couldn’t wait to get out of the shower to start doing all my plans that I had already planned to do.

Then here I am. After y shower. 6:30 a.m. and I have no idea where to start. My brian is so clustered with so many ideas at one time I want to do it ALL! Another problem: I only have half of the things I need to start half these projects..

Looks like I’ll be crocheting and waiting for my mom to go shopping with me. I need a clear head to help me stay on track! Until then I am keeping this new notebook beside and I might not let it out of my sight incase I have any more crazy ideas!

This could be an interesting day!

Love Always,


King Pinz, Call of Duty, and the McRib!

9 Nov

Yesterday we celebrated B’s birthday and I promised pictures .. unfortunately I forgot my camera so I am using google pictures (minus B’s card and E’s pic) to give you a feel of the night.

The place looked like this:

The girls drank these:

The boys drank these:

E wore daddy’s favorite shirt:

and since we aren’t spending money on each other for gives I gave B this:

Then we came back to the house for some fresh hot BROWNIES!

It was an awesome night and right now? Yeah B is playing Call of Duty: Black Opps with no interruptions 🙂 I even went to McDonald’s to buy him a McRib so he could eat his favorite McDonald’s meal and keep playing. I love him.

Love Always,
