The Man of My Dreams Turns Out to Be a Frog

You all know how much I love my UK Wildcats. I L-O-V-E love them. So when I heard that my absolute favorite Wildcat would be in the B.G., I knew I just had to see him. I'm sure you've heard about him- Michael Kidd-Gilchrist that is. He was a freshman this year, offered to give up  his starting position so that a senior could start, predicted to be #2 in the draft pick...you know...sounds like a good guy. Did I mention that I have a huge crush on this fella? So yes, I was going to see him if I had to follow him back to Lexington! (Kidding here...slightly).



MKG was scheduled to be at the classy joint of Kroger (yes, the grocery) from 4-6. I just so happened to be at a jewelry party at that exact time, so something was going to have to happen. I talked about it enough that everyone at the party got the hint, and we were out the door by 5:40. I sped across town, cussed a few slow drivers, did a little weaving in and out of traffic, and raced into the parking lot. We got to the door and there he was- with NO line! Holla! I walked up, gave a worker my credit card since nothing...not even a picture... is free, and waltzed on up to Mr. Kidd-Gil. I put my arm around his waist, pulled him in, and smiled for the camera.

Of course I did what any girl would do; I checked it to make sure it was fb appropriate. And if I'm paying money to get this done, I want it to be legit. It wasn't. So I pulled MKG back to my side, smiled, and got a decent shot.

While waiting for my friends to pay, I tried making small talk with my knight in shining armor blue. He was having none of it. He didn't say hello when I walked up. He didn't say thanks for coming by and paying to see me. Nothing. My dreams of marrying and having his children were crushed. (Again, slightly kidding here.) Should I have gushed about how he is my favorite wildcat and love him to pieces? I thought that might be a little crazy white girl for him, so I didn't. But nothing? :( It was sad times, girls, sad times.

I may pretend that ole MKG wasn't like that so I can still be a fan of his. I mean I do have a picture with him (that will be printed and framed), and his signature on my championship tee and poster. I didn't rush all the way across town for nothing, right? What do you think?

Golf Scramble Firsts

I experienced a few firsts this weekend. It was my first time going to a golf scramble. It was my first time volunteering at a golf scramble. Heck, it was my first time being on a golf course, for goodness sakes! And I admit, I had fun!
View from the golf course of the lake.

Backstory? So a friend of mine is involved in PTO at her son's school. She organized a golf scramble for a fundraiser, had no participation from other members or teachers, so Whitney and I volunteered our Sunday to help out.
3 deer we ran up on while driving the golf cart.

After registration, there really wasn't anything for us to do, so we cruised around the golf course on the golf cart; the best part of the day on the course, imo. [Apparently, this was a distraction to the golfers. Apparently, you are supposed to sit at a table for 5 hours and look at each other, instead of trying to have a little fun. But anywho....]
Taking pictures of yourself with a phone is difficult. Obviously.

After the scramble was over and prizes were awarded, a few of us decided to head to a Mexican restaurant to catch up, eat, and  have a drinky drink.  [Apparently, it is also wrong to engage in conversation with people in the parking lot after a golf scramble. It will come off as being "flirty," which is also apparently bad behavior.]

Time at El was so. much. fun. We had some food and drinks, great conversation, and more laughs than I can remember in a long time.  Despite some negative comments towards our terrible behavior (and I put that in italics because it was only viewed this way by one person), I had so much fun!

Believe it or not, I'm ready to play some golf. Anyone want to teach me?

Fifty Shades Obsessed

My good friend, Molly, over at The Fuschia News, was telling me about this book that has apparently taken the nation by storm. You may have heard of it, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Not long after, an aqcuaintance was telling me what it was all about. "Smut" is the word she used to describe it. Well, hello! After hearing that, I knew I wanted to read it. Duh.

Before I bit the bullit, I checked around, and everyone was talking about this book. It was all over the Twitter-verse. Finally, I did it. I downloaded it, and I was quickly hooked. Yes, the writing isn't that advanced. You don't have to think about what you are reading, but isn't that part of the fun? You can get lost in a book that is fun to read and doesn't give you a headache?

I finished Fifty Shades of Grey on Wednesday afternoon. I was going to wait until Friday to download the next, but I just couldn't wait. I had to start reading the next one, Fifty Shades Darker, so I dl'd it yesterday at lunch. And friends, it's just as good. I've not read much of it yet, but it has me hooked too.

Have you read these? What did you think? What are you currently reading?

Thankful Thursday

If you know me well, you know that I have quite the little temper. I can get moody and emotional and I take everything to heart. Despite that, I still like to remember that I have so much to be thankful for. I'm linking up with some lovely ladies today to share those things.
Thankful Thursdays Button

I'm so thankful to have a job. Even though it's definitely not what I thought I would be doing, I'm so glad I have a job that will pay the bills. I may not have a lot of extra money to do what I want (SHOPPING!), but it does pay the bills so that I have a home to live in, heat in the winter, air in the summer, etc.

I'm thankful to have my family. Yes, we get on each other's nerves, but I know that my mom, step-dad, and sister will be there if I need them. Not everyone is that lucky.

I'm thankful for peonies. Yes, a flower. Everytime I pull into the driveway or back out of the garage, I see these beautiful flowers (that are my absolute favorite!) blooming, as of this week, and I'm reminded that it's the little things that make me smile the most.

I'm thankful for my little nutjob dog, Mia. She barks constantly, isn't potty trained, and drives me crazy most of the time, but I can't imagine coming home and she not being there. And no matter what mood I'm in, she's always there.  I love that dog.

What are you thankful for this week?

Pinterest Funnies

I love sharing my pinterest finds with  you guys, especially the really funny ones. Because let's face it....everyone needs some laughter in their life at any given time, right?


So true!!

I love this one. Love it!

Definitely could use this line with some of the guys here at work.

Ha. SOOO true! I'm territorial over my bffs.

I know several people like this. Let's post daily about stuff, but get mad if someone asks.
This one may be one of my favorite cartoons ever. So funny.

Right?

And finally.
Have an awesome day!

Celebrity Doppleganger

You know they say that everyone has a twin. Sometimes I see people, and I automatically think of the celebrity that looks exactly like them! I, however, have yet to find my twin, or doppleganger.

A Mommas Desires and Pacifiers

There's a website, myheritage.com, that will match your picture to a celebrity that looks like you. I've tried this before, but since Ms. Raven was doing a link-up, I thought I'd try it again.

Y'all. I think they were way off this time. Check it out.


The first and most similar gal they paired me with is Kristen Kreuk. I'd never heard of this girl, so I immediately googled her. This gal is gorgeous y'all. And looks absolutely nothing like me. Nothing! But I'll take it.

And what about the trainwreck called Helena Bonham Carter. Excuse me. Is this a joke? Then I started looking at just her face. This lady does have some nice features; good bone structure, pretty eyes. But man, she is a wreck.

I think the bigger joke is that cutie-patootie Emma Watson is on this list. What blind man thinks that I even resemble this girl? I'll take it, nonetheless! Heck yes I will! (Even though she is like 7 in the photo. That doesn't really count, does it?)

Finally, the only one that I can see any resemblance to is Melissa Joan Hart, and that's only because it seems to me that we have the same smile. Maybe.

Also, it looks like each of these celebrity photos are from the 90s. Not very accurate in my opinion.

Which of the above celebrities do you think I look most like? Is there anyone else out there that you think I resemble? If so, please enlighten me!

Spring Must Haves With Holly

Remember that post I did a few weeks ago about my top 5 spring must-haves? Well, Miss Holly over at Running In Stilettos needed some guest bloggers to share their must-haves.
Holly - Isn't she gorg?

Of course, I volunteered! This is my very first post on another's blog, and I'm quite excited. Check it out, won't you?

And while you are there, check out the other ladies that submitted their items. They are quite good. AND, keep reading. If you aren't familiar with Holly or her awesome blog, I think you will love it, just like I do!

What are your must haves?

A Few Things Learned

I had to attend a training yesterday that was about 1.5 hours away in Louisville. I was quite nervous, because 1. I am not a sales person and this was a service based sales meeting, 2. I hate driving to places I've never been, and 3. I hate driving alone. During my day away, I learned a few things... Prepare yourselves.

1. Some people have zero personality. Zip. Zero. Nada. I was in a room with about 11 other adults. Some knew each other, but I was one of the strangers. I normally try to make small talk, inject myself into open conversations, pretend to be interested. However, there are people out there that would rather sit there with a sour-puss look on their face and spend 8 hours alone. Talking to no one.

2. Some people have no manners. I went to this training knowing there would be one person there, the manager that was over our store and other surrounding ones. When I he arrived, he spoke, asked about the trip, blah blah blah. That was it for the entire day.
No questions about the day. No small talk at lunch or breaks. Nothing. Not even a bye at the end of the day. Wow. Thanks for pretending you don't know me. D bag!

3. Some other people have no manners. I walked into the site and was greeted by a lady that worked there. She led me to the office where 2 men were also waiting? or hanging out? I introduced myself and they did the same while shaking hands. Polite, right? One of the guys, behind the desk, remained seated (which I thought was a little rude), but still did the hello/handshaking thing. He then continued conversation with the other people while dropping the f bomb and other various words. Well that's all fine and dandy, but you don't know me. Never met me. I could be anyone. At least show a little restraint in front of strangers, yeah?

4. Be nice. So while I was at this meeting, sitting in a metal fold up chair for 8 hours, I got thirsty. No one offered water. Not a snack. Not a direction or idea for lunch ideas. Thanks for the hospitality, guys!

5. I hate traffic. I already knew this, but afternoon traffic on an interstate coming out of a large city is a beeotch with a capital BEEOTCH. Bumper to bumper traffic. Cars holding up lanes. Semis swerving in and out of traffic. Geez Louise. I hate it.

6. Don't take rings off to wash your hands. You will lose them. Especially if you are at a truck stop/gas station. I took my ring off, washed and dried my hands, left and drove the remaining 45 minutes to the Ville and had been in the meeting about an hour before I even realized it. Of course, when I drove through, I stopped to see if it had been turned in. Nope. It wasn't some awesome, one of a kind, expensive ring, but it was my favorite, and I wore it all the time. Dang, I already miss it.

So there it is, folks. My lesson for the week. Happy Thursday!

New Domain and Email?

I'm ready for a change, and I need your assistance. I want to transfer my blog to another google account. Apparently you can't just change your sign-in name and keep the same web address, but I never use that email or login. Have you changed your email, thus changing your blog url? Is it a hassle? Should I just leave what I have and cringe every time I log in?

Thoughts?

It's Ok, kids. Really.

Linking up with Neely and Amber for It's Ok. Love these things!
Its Ok Thursdays

It's ok...

That I cried last night during the final One Tree Hill episode. What will I do without the gang?

That some people just really irk me with the way they only think about themselves.

And other people irk me with how highly they think of themselves. It's not attractive people.

That I'm sad that my neighbor's daughter got THE car that I want. Damn it. (She also got the same car (different version) that I'm currently driving a week or two before I got mine. What is up with that shiz?)

That I'm totally broke and have NO extra money for anything at all.

That I totally lied about that last statement. It's not ok, and it makes me sad. And angry. Girl needs to win the lottery!

What are you ok with today?
