It's Ok

I've got so many things going on.....and lucky for you all, you will get to read about it. Be ready.
Its Ok Thursdays

It's ok... that I'm moody and emotional. I'm a girl. It comes with the territory.

It's ok... that I'm impatient. I know patience is a virtue, but I think I missed that boat. I have none. But sometimes, you just gotta get on with it and go!

It's ok... to be ready for people to shit or get off the pot. C'mon, people. What are you waiting for? What's the hold up? Just do it already!

It's ok... to have baby fever. Everyone around me is either pregnant or have newborns. I'm going crazy (in a good way) buying so much cute stuff. But it almost makes me wish I were buying it for my baby. Almost.

It's ok... that I'm going nuts over finances. It's a big deal, no? I'm trying to stay calm, but I worry.

It's ok... to be totally and completely sad that PLL is not coming on for months. :(

It's ok... to be totally devastated that next week is the forever finale to One Tree Hill. What will I watch now? I'll never see Nathan again.... ::sobbing::

What are you declaring IT'S OK to today? Please tell me.

Misty

It's been 2 years since this pretty lady was taken from us.

2 years since the worst day of my life, when my cousin was killed. A 20 year old just isn't supposed to die, especially the way she did.

So if you will, please say a prayer for her family. Say a prayer for a mother that wasn't supposed to bury her child. For a sister who lost a best friend. For 2 little boys that lost their mother. They still grieve. They still hurt.

Love you and miss you so much, Misty.

Call Me Crazy

I had a rough moment yesterday afternoon. You see, I was at work, and work can be stressful at times. Nothing was going right; people were streaming in; I had issues with claim numbers and adjusters, and it was just one of those afternoons.

So it really didn't take much for me to go crazy, white girl on a customer yesterday. She has called every other day for the past two weeks about something. She was hateful. I couldn't get her to hush long enough for me to explain anything. She kept going on and on and on. She ended up calling me a liar (about something I had no control over). She said she was going to call my mother. Umm..hello! I'm an adult. What is my mother going to do?

 So finally, I did what anyone would do...I lost my patience and my cool. I called her crazy. I said everyone knew how she was. The phone call finally ended with her crying on the other end of the line. I was so angry that I was shaking and the tears started to fall. I cry when I get mad. I went home and went straight to bed.

This morning, I feel a little differently. I feel slightly guilty for calling her crazy (even though she clearly is....long story). I feel guilty for losing my temper on someone that obviously has issues. I shouldn't have talked to a customer that way. I shouldn't have stayed on the phone with her for over ten minutes. I should have just ended the call when I felt myself losing it.

Oh well. It happens, right? Today will be better....as long as she doesn't call back. :)

Pinterest Fashions

Oh em gee, guys. Can you believe this weather? It's been absolutely gorgeous here in Kentucky the past few days, sunshine, upper 70-lower 80 degree weather. Absolute perfection. Which means, I've been pulling out the short sleeves, capris, and sandals. This also means I've had my eye on some fashion pieces that I'm dying to get. I'm
linking up with The Vintage Apple today to share some of my favorites!



I would wear each and every one of these! Love them.









Notice any trends here? Color! I'm loving how much color is everywhere this Spring! Do you love any of these  creations? Would you wear them?

What the A? Pretty Little Liars Recap

Warning: Spoiler alert!! Don't read if you don't want to know what happened last night!

Since this show came out, I have been obsessed with watching every episode every Monday night. It had me hooked from the beginning; the suspicious characters, the dynamic between the four main characters, the cliffhangers throughout the whole show that made me want to see and know more.

Last night, we finally learned who A really was. Kind of. Unfortunately, about a year ago a friend let the cat out of the bag and told me who A was in the books. I was a little peeved, so I can't say I was surprised. But I honestly thought they might change it up, especially after she started getting texts too.

So let's talk about last night. I was on the edge of my seat the entire episode. I kept texting my friends the same things over and over; "I'm freaking out," "I'm scared," "WTF!" It was killing me.

Throughout the entire series, we'd been led to believe it could have been a number of people: Noel, Melissa, Ian, Jenna, Garrett, and Mona. When Mona started receiving texts too, I thought that it definitely could not be her. Well, surprise! It was. How freaky was that room? And how psychotic did they make Mona look in that black hoodie?

We definitely know that other people are involved. The mastermind visited Mona in the psych ward. Jenna, who can actually see, visited someone in the park. Who is this mastermind? And who else is in the group? Melissa is definitely guilty of something. Mona said it was about revenge. So maybe she wants revenge on Spencer for kissing not 1, but 2 boyfriends.

And  how odd was it that they found Maya's body (maybe)? Definitely wasn't seeing that one coming. I thought maybe she could have been involved in A plot. Maybe she was killed because she refused to join, like Mona said Spencer would be?

I still have so many questions! Why did Jenna turn on Garrett? Who is actually the father of Melissa's baby? How did Toby contact the shrink? What is the connection between Garrett and Melissa? The baby? Have they been together from the beginning? Who killed Ian, and why? I wondered how the series would continue, but it looks like there will be no problem coming up with more storylines.

The show continues this summer, and I cannot wait to see how the rest of the story unfolds!

Did you watch? What did you think of everything?

Pinterest Project: Duct Tape Wreath

I saw this on pinterest, and I immediately knew I could do this...and would since it involved animal print.

Inpiration pin:

I couldn't for the life of me find a styrofoam wreath that had the rounded edges. I remembered this pin (below)about using a pool noodle, found one for $2 at Target, and voila! Instant wreath.

I did cut the noodle down so it wouldn't be such a big circle. It also may be a little more oval, but if you work with it, it will become a circle in seconds.

Materials:
Wreath
Duct tape
Flower or other decoration
Scissors












Finished project:

I will probably go back to get a larger flower, because I think this one is just too small. This is one that has a pin and a clip on the back (for hair or clothes or whatever), and just isn't large enough for this size wreath.

I'm also going to use something other than that wreath hanger. It's just not working either. Any ideas what I can use?

Price breakdown:
Wreath Pool noodle: $1.99
Duct tape: $3.99
Red flower pin: $1.99
Total: $7.97
Not bad, right?

What do you think of my duct tape wreath?

I'm Switzerland

I've been a Kentucky Wildcats fan for as long as I can remember. When I was in middle school, I would sit in the den downstairs and watch the Cats play all by myself. Seriously though, what teenage girl does this? To this day, I'm a die-hard fan.

However, Western Kentucky University was a mere 30 minutes from my house. We had a campus in my hometown. So that was the logical choice for me to go to school there. After 6 years of paying tuition, attending classes, and going to the games to root for the Hilltoppers, I feel a sense of loyalty to that place.

And tonight is the first game for the Cats in the NCAA tournament. And guess who we play? Yep. The WKU Tops. How do I choose? Can I root for both? I think I'll just be Switzerland. Neutral. Go Cat Tops!

iPod Playlist

Every single time I get in the car and turn my iPod on, I immediately go to this playlist. It's upbeat. It makes me happy, hyper, and puts me in the best mood ever. And if there is someone else in the car with  me? Well we have a jam session, of course!

The language is a little rough on some of these. That's your warning.

Big Sean w/ Nicki Minaj- "Ass"


Kanye West & Jay-Z- "Niggas in Paris"


Tyga- "Rack City"


Flo Rida- "Good Feeling"


Tyga- "Faded"


and of course, Wiz Khalifa's song, "When I'm Gone," which I featured yesterday!

What are you all listening to to get you going? Let me know what I need to check out!

My Theme Song

You know that song that comes on the radio and you instantly think, "That's so me!" Well this is my song. Albeit, I'm not around beyotches and champagne every night, but listen to the chorus. That's definitely me.




I'm on a repeat kick with this song. So good. And when it comes on that commercial for Bing. I stop everything and listen. Love this song, y'all!

What do you think about it? Doesn't it fit me?

Come back tomorrow. You'll get my "Get happy and hyper" playlist. It's pretty awesome.
