Weekend Recap

WOAH WHAT A WEEKEND!!!
it was a crazy weekend that was just GO-GO-GO!
Phew! It was one of the best weekends i have had in a while.
I am ready to get back down to business though and get more sub jobs and
work more on this blog :)
 
I have a few exciting things to share with you tomorrow about
this little blog but you will have to wait til tomorrow because
i cannot wait to tell you all about my weekend!
 
 
Friday- Alrighty so friday I was pretty much a bum all day. I went
to lunch with my friend Jessica and then waited for my friend Alex to get to town.
She lives in STL and came down to visit for homecoming. (it was homecoming
weekend for the university I went to). So after alex got here
we ran some errands made dinner and then got ready. Friday night was an
alumni event for the business organization i was in during college. We all went to this
bar downtown and have a wonderful loud ( i lost my voice!) time. However
before we had a few drinks at my friend Chris' apartment before.
got a little wild...with that group it's bound to happen!
It was such a good time catching up and being around
such good friends.
 
 
Saturday- Well saturday was the CRAZY day! After alex and I drug our poor bods home
from the bar around one am we slept like little babies until about 9am to which my alarm
was telling us that we were no longer 19 year olds and cannot drink and then get up
the next day looking fresh... anyways we cleaned ourselves up downed 
about a gallon of water, inhaled McDonald's breakfast and headed to
the tailgate. How people who were out til 2am can partying can be ready to drink at 10am
is  beyond me. I was chugging water and trying to stay upright most of the tailgate.
We had a great time though. There was TONS of food and mostly just friends having a wonderful time.
 
After the tailgate a nap was DEFINITELY in the cards for us. So napped we did, of course we had
to have bravo on the tv. After a little beauty sleep, i woke up made caleb's birthday
cake and we got ready to hit the town.
Caleb's birthday celebration was a BLAST!! Everyone had such a good time.
A few too many Jack Daniels shots were had, but hey
the birthday boy gets what he wants. We danced, laughed, drank
and i think he had a pretty spectacular birthday!
 
 
Sunday- I went to a Waffle House. Yes, i ventured somewhere i hoped to never go and let me tell you, it was delish. Gross & greasy but delish and just what caleb's hangover needed.
There was of course napping (what else do we do on sundays?)
then caleb took me to dinner we did a little target shopping
WHERE I BOUGHT NOTHING...GO ME!
and then watched football the rest of the evening.
 
It was a fab weekend. Now today is actually Caleb's birthday
so I am making him dinner and we are gonna have the rest of the
birthday cake!
 
How was your weekend??
 
 
oh and here is the photo dump!
 
Friday:
 
Alex & I
 
Amanda and I
 
I told ya... a little wild.
 
Alan had a few drinks..
 
Saturday:
 
Jack Daniels for the birthday boy!
 
 
Lindsey and I-- THIS IS THE DRESS I WAS
TALKING ABOUT!
 
Here is a little better picture.
The black trim is leather-like
material and the back turns into a razorback
i don't have a picture of it though.
 
Caleb and I
 
JO and I

Stay tuned for tomorrow

his apartment. We cleaned it top to bottom..except his bathroom..thats all on him.
We..err i mean caleb made deer steaks for dinner then headed out to Jimmy & Lacey's

Sunday Social {deep thoughts}

Well hello!
Happy Sunday! Hope yours is going well. It is bright and sun shiney
with 60 degree weather. This girl couldn't be happier :)
Today I am linking up for Sunday Social!

Sunday Social
 
1. What do you value most in life?
My family & friends. The ability to take care of myself. The ability to walk
see and hear. So many people are not as fortunate to have those abilities.
2. What do you think is the greatest invention in your lifetime and why?
Electricity. oh and indoor plumbing. Girlfriend is not a fan of
peeing in nature.

3. What do you think is the secret to a good life?
I think striving to be and make others happy. Not with tangible
items but with the things you you cannot see, such as love, integrity
honesty, and compassion. If you strive to live that way you will be happy.
oh and chocolate doesn't hurt either

4. What would you most like to be remembered for when you're gone?
That I always made others feel welcome and comfortable. I have been so many places
where i felt unwelcome which made me awful I don't want to make
anyone ever feel like they do not belofe. Also, that i was an
excellent friend who people felt they could confide and share with.

5. What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of?
Graduating from college!

6. If a movie was made about your life, who would you want to play you?
Emma Stone.
She is too gorgeous for words.
One of the funniest ladies out there.
and a ginger.
 
tri-fecta? I think so.
 
I hope you guys had a fabulous weekend!!
I will fill you all in on mine tomorrow.
xo

I wanted to tell you guys something!
 
THANK YOU!!
 
I cannot believe there are 28 of you guys out there who would
want to follow me.
Yes i know there are blogs out there that have hundreds
or even thousands of followers
and who knows maybe one day i might hit triple digits
but i am not too worried about that. I am so grateful for those
of you who follow me. I never thought I would get any followers
let alone almost 30. Those of you who comment and send me such
wonderful thoughts.
I truly appreciate you.
 
My goal is to get to you guys better. I am so envious of those bloggers who have such
close relationships with fellow bloggers. I want that. I want to get to you guys better
and for you to know me better.
 
So if i don't know you introduce yourself.
comment.
 
and even if we have talked before
still do it :)
 
 
Thank you again and i hope your friday is quite amazing.

the bent mail key {pissed off edition}

A bent mail key.
that is what i received from my apartment complex!
 
Now it's not like i get a whole lot of mail.
But what i do get is important.
Electric bills, pay checks, wedding invites, care package
from my mom, blog swaps.
 
legit stuff.
obvi.
 
Well when i first moved in there was NO mail key for my mailbox
and the lady in the office said and i quote
"we will have to get another one made"
no big deal, it wasn't expecting mail for a while anyway
well i went in yesterday
 (A WEEK AFTER MOVE IN! I wanted to give them time to get it)
and they handed me a mail key.
Now I didn't check my mail right then
because they mail lady was in the middle of putting mail in my buildings
and i am nice lady and didn't want to crowd in while she was doing her biz.
boxes so i just left and decided to come back later.
So this morning I head over there. I have been expecting
a disk for my 'new' printer aka my mom's old one.
Well what do i find when i get there?
 
MY MAIL BOX IS OPEN!!
it was not closed?
WHAT THE EFF??
So i opened it up and it was full of mail.
Mostly coupons or whatever and a few old envelopes with the last person who
lived there last name. So then I took everything out and went to stick the key in so i can
lock it and oh wait...
 
the key wont go in?
so after further examination, the tip of the key is bent!!
yes this is my life.
So i walk up to the office and explain what is going on.
I tell her that my mail box was left open and the key is bent!
Her first response "oh the mail person probably left it open"
no shit.
BUT HELLLLO i don't want my box just left open for someone to go through.
then she proceeds to tell me they will have to drill (aka reset?) the lock
but they can only do it while the mail person is there.
and the entire time she is giving me a fabulous combo
of attitude and a "i don't give a shit" tone.
beeesh i will cut you.
Then she says... "well i will let the maintenance know"
UH.... I want this shiz taken care of STAT!
I need to get into my mailbox.
do i not deserve to get into my OWN mailbox??
I am paying rent here, i am entitled to a lockable mail box!
am i wrong people?  i think not.
 
This is the look i am going to giving.
needless to say I am going back up to the office to day and demanding it be taken care of.
/end rant.
 
 oh and after all that the installation CD for the printer told me
that my computer was NON COMPATIBLE
for the printer.

yep

I'll be there for you {friends}

I have some pretty fab friends.
True story.
 

I have been blessed with having wonderful friends for most of my life.
Now, they haven't all stayed in my life.
People come and go.
That is just how life is.
 
No matter, if we have been friends for 10 years
or 1 year. I am blessed to have them.
There was a reason they were brought into my life.
Have you ever heard the quote-
"people walk in to your life. Somtimes they stay for a moment, a while or sometimes they
stay forever."
I am huge believer in that.
It took me a while. I used to get sad or even mad when i would drift apart
from someone or when our friendship fell apart.
Now, I have to let it go.
All things happen for a reason.

I have just been sitting here thinking about the people who have come through
my life and how much they meant to me.
Did they stay? Sometimes no, but I needed them for some reason or
another and i am lucky they were there.
Or perhaps they needed me, and i sure hope i did whatever it
it was  I was suppose to do.
 
During high school I had great friends. They were and still are
wonderful people.
We stayed up until 4 am talking
about boys, eating junk food and gossiping.
Saying goodbye when I went to college was extremely hard.
Did we stay in touch? Yeah, for the first year or so.
But as life goes, we drifted apart.
Was I sad? Of course. But life happens.
Does that diminish the strength of the friendship we had?
absolutely not.
 
Throughout college I made many friends.
Some friends i studied with.
Some friends i partied with.
Some friends i laid on the couch watched bravo and drank wine with.
Some were all three.
Over the course of the 5 years since i started and graduated from college
friendships have been made and friendships have been lost.
Did they all end badly? No. Did some? Yes.
I have grown from each and every single friendship.
 
After this past weekend I have realized how lucky i am.
Whether or not we still talk everyday
or not I have/had amazing people in my life.
I have also realized it's the little things that i need to remember and be
grateful for.
 
I am trying so hard to cherish the moments with the friends
that i have and to work to strengthen each one of those
friendships.

Weekend Update

Well hello Monday.
that is all i have to say to you, because my mother
taught me that if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all.
 
 
Alrighty so this was a crazy weekend!
 
here we gooo--
 
Friday- Well i subbed all say friday. LONG DAY, lemme tell ya! Then I came home and took about an hour snooze. Caleb went home to see his parents and little sister this weekend
so i popped over to his place to say bye etc etc. Then Friday evening, one of my friends
Kory, had a little get together. and by get together, i mean house party? WHATT?
yes, this old lady went to a house party. Granted it was all my friends
hanging out but never the less, it was a party at a house.
 
Saturday- SO AS YOU GUESSED, i spent most of the day recooperating.I laid on my couch
for the majority of the day sleeping and watching bravo. I did however go to caleb's and clean
out his fridge. Yeah, that's the kinda lady i am.
Ps it was effing gross and i couldn't take it anymore.
Now saturday evening was New Member Dance for this organization
i was in during college. Now it's not so much a dance
as we rent a room at a bar and all dress
in a theme and hangout..and booze.
Now I didnt dress up. I think i have surpassed my theme party days
sad day.
Anywhoos it was literally a MONSOON outside. As in side ways
rain and CRAZY winds. But the troopers we are, we made it.
I had a grand ole time. Just seeing a lot of people
I haven't seen in months since i had moved home. It was great catching up
and have a beer or two..
 
Sunday- The lazy of all lazy days. Caleb got back in the early morning
so we ended up grilling for the chiefs game...they lost.. surprise.
But then he had a fab idea! We have this movie theater where they play
movies that came out a few months ago, and only charge 3 bucks.
So we went and saw the Dark Knight Rises. I had never seen it,
and caleb..well he went and saw it at the midnight premier.
what a NERRRD.
I kid. I kid. Who saw 3 Harry Potters at the mid night premieres..this girl.
Anywhoos, to 'catch up' we watched the other batmans for the rest of the day before
we went to the 8pm showing.
Wild Sunday, yep.
 
here a few pictures from saturday--
 
 the theme was 'tv/movie characters' and katie (on the left)
was Zoey Deschenelle.



 
 
 
 
 
Well there ya have it ladies.
how was YOUR WEEKEND?!
