It's Ok...

Its Ok Thursdays


Linking up today with Amber for It's OK Thursday

IT'S OK....

-That I still haven't made the switch to bloglovin
Remember what I said about being a procrastinator


-That I made a fort in the middle of the living room for munchkin to watch Hop in...on a school night
We're excited about Easter
I'll have pictures another day

-That since watching Hop, the Easter Bunny has been visiting our house
I know this because he's been leaving behind a trail of jellybean bunny poop
Again...pictures later

-That I told the munchkin that it was because he was scoping out places to put the Easter eggs come Sunday morning
That little bunny has a lot of ground to cover.
It pays to be prepared


-That I didn't think to use the whole "he's making sure you're being good" line
But munchkin sure thought of it.
Who knew that the Easter bunny could have the same effect as Santa

 
-That I'm supposed to work tomorrow but have off anyways
Thank you daycare for being closed

Happy Dance

 -That it's now time for me to promote a friend of mine.
I've got this friend who recently lost her job. She's a single mother and has been looking for a new one, but just can't seem to get one.
The job market sucks yo.
So in an attempt to make ends meet, she set it up so that she can sell Avon.
Today is her first day
I don't know if you wear make-up or not
I know I don't
but they sell more than just makeup.

You can get to her Avon website HERE

Here are the things that I ordered:

 Because the only thing I do really wear is eyeshadow and who doesn't need a good eyeshadow brush
This came in at a whole $2.99

 I ordered this eyeshadow pencil thing in blue.
I love, love, love bright vibrant eyeshadow
$12.00

 There was a buy 2 Clearskin products for $7.99
So I bought 2.
The facewash blemish clearing stuff
and the 'let's pop your face' thing
I can't be the only one with the weird obsession with popping zits and blackheads and such.
 
 This set will be perfect on a "me" night.
I try to have at least one a month.
The whole set was $9.99
 Because as you can see, I'm not pale...I'm translucent
It's like the Jergens tanning lotion stuff
Just a different brand
I figured what could it hurt
$6.99
 This is some sort of "wake up" stick
Or at least it's supposed to make you look like you're awake
It claims to make your eyes less puffy and look like you've gotten enough sleep
Well, since I usually only catch a few hours of Z's 
What could it hurt?
$10.00

Plus it helps out my friend.
They have stuff for kids too
Please, if you could go check out her website
If your order is $30 or more you get free shipping straight to your house.

Late to the Party - Finish the Sentence

button


 Linking up with Jake and Holly for part two of the Finish the Sentence link-up. So what if I'm a day late.

1. If calories didn't count, I would eat...
Everything. With a side of everything else.Only not so much, I would drink a lot of coffee (oh wait, I already do that) and I would eat a lot of cajun food and italian food. But only the authentic stuff.
mmmm.
OH! and cheese, and bread (fresh)...and bacon. 

2. On my Prom night....
I had my best friend's mom make me my prom dress. It was gorgeous!
But by the time Prom itself rolled around I was already living on my own.
Well, with munchkin's dad (we were in loooooove) and two roommates
So it came down to go to prom...or pay rent.
I kept a roof over my head.

3. When I go to the store, I always buy...
Everything that I don't need. Seriously though, I will go in the store for two things, TWO, and walk out having spent $100+
How the eff do I do this?
I see things that we need that I just didn't think about before getting in the car obviously. -.-

4. Family functions typically...
This depends on the level of family involvement. If it's just my mom, stepdad, brother, grandma, muchkin, and I (which is usually the case) then it's no biggie.
If it's the rest of the family though...
Please someone for the love of all that is good in the world let there be booze!
  Don't get me wrong-we love each other
We just can't stand to be in the same place for more than an hour or two

5. I think my blog readers...
Are the shiznit yo!
I talk to a few of them pretty regularly and it makes me happy inside
I never would've thought that other people would give two shits about what I have to say 

6. I'd much rather be.....
Back in my bed
I wish that my alarm would stop being such a jealous bitch
What my bed and I have is special
It shouldn't be screwed with.
We love each other 

7. I have an obsession with....
BATMAN!
Aside from that...
hmm, well I check my budget obsessively.
I guess that comes from being an accountant's daughter
I have an excell spreadsheet for EVERYTHING
 
8. My work friends.... .
I tend to keep my work life and my personal life separate.
I talk to people I work with obviously but I wouldn't call them friends.
They are just my coworkers

9. When I created my Facebook account....
I don't even remember creating my facebook account :/

10. My least favorite word is...
Moist.
Blech, it just sounds dirty. 
Which is worse: Moist, Recycled, or Reused? 

11. I really don't remember....
Most things.
It's strange, I have a great memory...when I want to
But when it comes to things I should rememer
Not the slightest chance in hell. 

12. Justin Bieber....
Can suck my imaginary left testicle.
Ok, I'll give it to the kid, he has talent.
But he is annoying as FUCK!

Neon Splash Dash/Weekend Recap


Looks like another week where I miss Monday

I don't know what the deal has been lately but I just haven't had the gumption to blog
School has been kicking me in the ass

This weekend was full of some much needed fun times though

Friday night I went to packet pick up for the Neon Splash Dash
The line was INSANE
I was standing in a line that wrapped around the entire store TWICE
for almost 2 hours.
Call me crazy but that's nuts.

Then I ended up going and seeing this awesome lady


She may or may not have had a few drinks too many
Also got to spend some time with my boyfriend
~gasp~
did she just say that?
Yes, yes I did.
He's been around for a while but I've been keeping him a secret
Looks like the cat's out of the bag now though

Spent the day Saturday with the rugrat
Then went to pick up the best friend from work
annnnd then the blonde struck.
I managed to lock my keys in the trunk of my car
What is it with me and my keys lately?
Are you freaking kidding me?!
 Thankfully I had a spare at home and was able to get a ride there and have my gma let me in so that I could get it.

Once we got into the car, we ran to target for a couple of last minute things

Best friend and I got blinky ring married
 Pay no mind to the sausage fingers

Then we realized that Texas doesn't allow same sex marriage
and that we both like penis too much to partake in a same sex marriage
It was around this time that we realized our "marriage" was a sham
And no, the blinky rings had nothing to do with that realization

then headed to the race

We got there about an hour(ish) early and saw this 


There were so many more people by the end of the night than just that.
It was crazy town

Then we waited somewhere between 45 minutes to an hour in the beer line
for a $7.75 beer
what the actual fuck?

Here are some things we saw while in line

If you look closely, that green thing...yup, that's a kid on a glow in the dark leash

I liked their hats...but the picture is pretty crappy.

More random people.

 Oh Chit! That's the start.

We still had our beers in hand.
We weren't about to throw that expensive shit away.

I knew that I would be walking the vast majority of the 5K because my knee had been bothering me quite a bit
So we walked through the start with our beer in our hands.

Public Service Announcement:

If you've a bum knee, do NOT walk a 5k
also, do NOT think that it is ok to dance around like a retard.
you WILL end up coming down on your bad knee the wrong way and almost falling in pain.
And even if hammer time is on while you're running through the glow station
Do NOT try to do the hammer dance.
The glow water spray people WILL spray you straight in the face for being a retard
and that shit WILL get in your mouth.
And it doesn't taste so good.

So, I walk/hobbled through the 5K and the four glow stations
and yes people, that is where the term wobble came from
not this dance


Wobbling is trying to walk while injured
walk/hobble = wobble
See
Logic

ANYWAYS, I digress

This was me before I left my house to head to the race




This was me after wobbling through it


That's without the blacklight
It was the shiznit yo!

Public Service Announcement No: 2:

If your knee is killing you and you want to chew your leg off
do NOT, under any circumstances
No matter how much you'll be upset with yourself if you don't
RUN the last bit of the course so that you can run through the finish

You WILL regret this decision
and your knee WILL hurt for days

I currently want to saw it off with a dull butter knife.

You should check out the picutres from the Neon Splash Dash FACEBOOK to see more of the race
They took better pictures than I did
I didn't want my phone to get wet/ruined
That link will take you straight to the Houston race photos

Friday Finds


I know I haven't been around much this week.
School is making me want to punch some people in the throat.
Thankfully this post requires ZERO through process.

I surf the internet
When I do, I find funny things
Then I save them
Not really sure why I do because I don't usually use them for anything
Other than to go back to and laugh more

SOOOO
I thought I would leave a few of my internet finds here
Maybe you can find a use for some of it
Or just laugh


Merry Christmas from your Lawyer


What candy should REALLy be called







Just have him tell a lie


Smart move guys






Toddler wars

I'd haul ass too!

Day late and a dollar short


Actually, for once I'm not a dollar short.


I know I didn't post yesterday, don't everybody freak out at once.
I was busy.
Who am I kidding, I wasn't busy...I just didn't do it.
Everyone has those days.


This weekend was AMAZING
but it was busy as hell
but it's all good.

Drove to see a friend for dinner friday night since I would be missing her baby shower on Saturday.
Took the munchkin along
We were sword fighting with lemon peels shoved into straws.
The goal was to get a lemon peel up someone's nose.
There were no casualties.

Saturday morning I woke up hella early to make a cheesecake and rice krispie treats
that was fun.
Minimal sleep, lots of coffee, and baking
What could possibly go wrong.


Got the rugrat ready to see her gma
got myself ready for my cousin's wedding
mind you this is a cousin that I haven't seen since I was THREE
 ..for those of you that are counting, that's 21 years ago.
But I haaaad to go to her wedding.


I went to tell her congratulations
She looked at me like I was some crazy lunatic
if only she knew
then my grandma had to introduce me to her mother
what is she called if she's not married to my uncle anymore
aunt once removed? 
I'm no good at this crap
Then SHE had to introduce me to my cousin
"Bride, this is your cousin"
"yeah, I know....rrrr.....Rebecca, right?"


are you freaking kidding me?
There was more, but it would require backstory that I'm not in the mood to give.
I left shortly after.
It was just waaaay to awkward for me.
Headed home to change clothes, grab the desserts, and head out of town to the crawfish boil
It was awesome.
The crawfish were great too.
I love going out there.
It's just so peaceful.
I'm sick of the big city.
I've lived here all my life and I'm sick of it.
It's just too much
I like quiet and peaceful not constantly moving and hectic

But I digress
Ate crawfish
Drank vodka
Got drunker than I let on
Laughed a lot
It was a great time.

Hopefully I'll have some big news to share with you all soon. :)


I think I need to jump on the blogloving train soon since there's this whole google thing getting rid of their whatever thing.

I don't keep up with the times

OH!!! And go check out my friendy friend Lauren.
She's the COOLEST

She just started her blog recently and is trying to get into the swing of things
Show her some love over on her blog The Silent T's
ya know, like crochet, merlot, cabernet
the T is silent.
Yup, I told you she rocks the Casbah

Friday AND St. Patrick's Day weekend?! Yes Please!


Holy hell, it's Friday already?!

 That means that tomorrow is Saturday!
Woot woot!


I'm celebrating St. Patrick's day tomorrow this year instead of on the holiday itself.
Sorry, but I to work Monday morning


I will be drunk. 
True story.
Made it up myself and everything.



Unrelated:

I hate when plans don't go as planned.

I know that shit happens and it's all fine and dandy...

I just hate when I get excited about something and am excited about it for a couple of days and then

BLAM!

Last minute, you get sucker punched.


It's frustrating.

And disappointing when it's something that could've easily been prevented.

BUT, such is life.
Gotta roll with the punches.

Let's all have a great St. Patty's Day weekend
