Random January Nonsense

Here’s some random goodness on this wonderful day!

I’m not ‘allowed’ to remove Christmas decorations until after my husbands birthday every year. It’s Christmas until at least Jan 8. This year, it was Christmas until Jan. 13th.

I have a nail polish addiction. I recently had to purchase a new storage place for my nail polish.

My sister-in-law is about to pop. She’s growing a human and that human is READY!

I have read Fifty Shades of Grey – Twice! And… I am not ashamed. I like the story.

I have this ‘feel like a teenager’ crush on Ian Somerhalder. I wish I could meet him. He seems so extremely down to earth. Every time I try to meet him, it never works out. Wait…do I sound like a stalker??

I’m at work right now. I actually typed this particular line on Notepad so I wouldn’t forget it. : )

Emerald Simply natural Almonds are DELICIOUS!

I have a teenager at home and we watch a lot of teenage shows together. I love it!

I just ordered my self a new purse/bag. It’s a Dooney. My first. I don’t usually buy myself expensive brand name stuff….  ; ) hehehe

New Bag

I need to go to Target today (this line was written on Monday) for things like Shampoo, Conditioner, razors.. you know… hygiene necessities.

I made it to Target yesterday and got my “stuff”.

Today is Tuesday.

The teenager used to be a cute pudgy little thing who wanted me to scratch her back every night before she went to sleep.

Cutie

I love my family and never ever get to see them enough!

My husband got me this awesome FM transmitter thingy that plugs into the lighter outlet. I can plug my Ipod into it (most 2004’s don’t have an Ipod connection!) . I love it so much. I got to listen to all the best stuff on my way to work today.

That’s it for January I guess. Unless I get another random mood.

Flu be gone

So I decided to do a reset on my blog for 2013. I posted one post and disappeared for a week! If anyone is out there actually reading this – I apologize!

After a long and tiring chase..the Flu Bug managed to catch me. This is not something that happens often. It’s running rampant through my neck of the woods and I just had no where else to run or hide!

FLU

I don’t get a flu shot, not even now after feeling the effects of that nasty little bugger. I don’t believe in vaccinations of any kind. I just don’t. That’s a discussion for another post.

Anyway, I had it all… stuffy nose, headache, sinus pressure, coughing, fatigue, fever…the works. I was completely down and out for almost a week!

The only good thing about being on my couch sick for a week was that I caught up on lots of TV shows and movies! I also caught up on lots of missed sleep from the holiday’s! I really love my couch and my pillows and blankets. I don’t get to spend enough time with it. This past week though, we have rekindled our relationship. : )

New Year – New Start – New Fun

Happy 2013 to Everyone!!

I guess I lost the blog “bug” awhile back. Life happens…right?

So, I figure the Mayans were wrong and we are all still here chugging away at life. It seems like the perfect time to start fresh and get back to blogging all about my life and feelings! Yay for all of you!

I don’t usually have New Years Resolutions, but, I think this year I’m going to have a few and perhaps blog about how I am doing with them periodically through 2013. That way I will either:

A. Keep up with them..or

B. See how funny they were in 6 months when I haven’t thought about them again.

So….here they are: New Years Resolutions for 2013:

1. Be part of a Flash Mob (if anyone hears of any in Central Fl. let me know!)

2. Remain positive while at work at least 3 days a week. : )

3. Be Healthy – this is a general goal that makes sense to me. Just be healthy.

4. Work towards a fun and successful blog (it’s hard work)

That’s it for 2013. Those are my goals. I hope to write more specific blogs on some of them as the year goes on.

Being Thankful

This post is a smidge on the late side huh? I guess life swept me up again and carried me away!!

I started this post about being Thankful before Thanksgiving which is the day that EVERYONE in the blog world was posting about being thankful …. soooo to keep up the tradition of being a Griswold and an always Late Laura, here is my Thankful post!

I’m thankful this year for my husband and our second year of marriage. We made it yet another year in this hard hard world. I love you my super cute stinkapotamus!

I’m thankful for my wonderful family. This includes my husbands wonderful family as well. I have so many caring people in my life.

I’m thankful for the fact that I have a job, a car and a house. So many people in our country, state and town don’t have 1 or more of these things. Being that it is after Thanksgiving, I am now thankful for a wonderful family filled Thanksgiving holiday. It was awesome. I love all of you and wish we could have more days like that! Looking forward to Christmas!

I’m thankful that my cousins baby girl was born beautiful and healthy this year.

I’m thankful for the show “How I Met Your Mother” I just recently started watching this show and I LOVE it!

I’m thankful for friends close and far. You are all great and wish that everyone was close to me all the time. Thank you all for everything!

I’m thankful for “The Vampire Diaries” too and Ian Somerhalder – He’s hot!

I’m thankful for delicious dinners and TV shows with my teenager, once in a while she makes me feel young.

I’m thankful for girls days full of snacks and Twilight movies – Including Breaking Dawn which I am so thankful I was able to see it already.

So anyway… what are all of you thankful for this season and this non-thanksgiving Tuesday?

 

The many faces of my Husband

Halloween may be over to everyone else…..But not in this house! The following pictures were all taken in the month of November. Costume Fun is year round in this house! Enjoy!

The following is what I like to call…fun with skirts!:

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to my husband. I love you! It’s been a great two years and a great 8ish before that!

 

All these years later and the little things still drive me crazy! (candy wrappers, stinky feet, hair in the sink, soda cans) But they are so worth all the great things you do. (love notes, vitamins, packing lunch, going to the store, waking me up)

I have said it before and I still feel it – we have a great thing! Sometimes we are off our game and things seem a little off but I always love you more than anything else! I love you and love everything you do for me!

I can’t wait for the rest of our life together my love!  Happy Anniversary!!

 

 

I sure do love that guy!! All his silly antics and his stinky ole socks included!

How many years have you been married? How’s married life?

But who is she……?

My husband and I started this blog together and planned to both blog and keep you entertained. I’m sure he will still decided to post a story or two on here but I have become the primary blogger. I realized that the “About” section is vague and thought maybe you want to know a little about me.

I’m in my 30’s and it only bothers me a little. They say you are only as old as you feel…. I always feel a different age. Sometimes I feel like a teenager and act like one too, but other times I wonder how I get around in this old body. It depends on the day.

I actually work a full-time, Monday – Friday job. It’s an interesting job with interesting people. I am still learning new things after almost 6 years.

I am also a student, not full-time because that would be impossible. I wish I were Superwoman but I’m not. I’m working on my AA and I take online classes. Yay!! I have about a year left and then plan to work toward a Bachelor’s in the same way.

I’m not crazy about where I live. It’s hot, we have no seasons and never get snow. I’ve lived here my whole life and surrounded by family, yet I feel a strong pull toward another area of our map. Sigh..maybe someday.

I don’t have any biological children. I do have the teenager though, she’s my child. We’ve been together forever and the only thing that seems to be missing from our relationship is all that pesky blood and DNA. I’ve watched her grow and taken care of her through the years so she’s mine! Blood be damned!

I do want more children though, biological or not. I want another child. I can’t wait for another child in the house. It gets to a point that is hard to even explain. It almost hurts. It’s a difficult thing to “try” to have a baby. It’s painful and stressful for everyone. It’s a difficult road. I may blog about it someday soon.

I’m not very girly, but I do love pink. I rarely wear heels and have no dresses. I have some specific confidence issues and as of today, my hair is too long. I love animals and children and pasta is the best!

I LOVE chocolate but if given the choice, I’d choose a Jolly Rancher. I’m a couch potato a lot of the time and it appears as if my bottom is starting to pay the price. I love lip gloss and watermelon and even watermelon lip gloss.

I hate spiders, needles, vomit or vomiting! Ugh… three biggest fears right there! I hate most veggies, and meatloaf too. Football bores me and so does golf although I love to play Mario Golf!

Is there anything else you want to know? Ask away and I’m happy to answer!

Avoid Close-Ups

When looking at Earth from space it looks beautiful and peaceful. It appears to be a wonderful place with a lot of beauty.

Don’t look to close though, appearances can be deceiving. Our Earth, our home is becoming more and more ugly the closer you look. While it’s still full of wonders and natural beauty, the human kind is slowly making our world an ugly place to be.  We are cutting down much of the natural beauty to make more room for people, we litter, we pollute, we kill. It’s a vicious cycle that is hard to break. So don’t look too close and you can still see the beauty of our world.

Physical and Inner beauty of a person is much the same.

A woman may look like a stone cold fox from your seat at the table, but those sitting right next to her may have another story. It could have to do with physical beauty and perhaps when close enough, you can see the flaws in her skin, the pimples, the discoloration or her scars.

The deception could be in her inner beauty though, and that’s much harder to find and you sometimes have to look even closer to see that’s she’s an ugly person.

In reality, almost nothing is perfect and we can’t expect that everything will be. Everyone you meet will have a flaw, that perfect, brand new car will soon be dirty. You can’t please everyone and everyone can’t please you. Just avoid the close-ups.
