The Package Concert

I know you all are going to be super jealous of me when you read this post. But don't be. I'm still the same ole gal I was before. I mean just because I may have seen Boyz 2 Men, 98 Degrees, and New Kids on the Block last week doesn't mean you have to hate me forever.

All kidding aside, I did see those boys men last week, and it was a good time. No, I wouldn't say it is at the top of my list of most fun concerts, but by golly, I was there, and I am fun! And tickets and food was free, so of course I was going to attend. As my bloggy friends say, "le duh". (I totally just cringed as I typed that too.)

And since you weren't there, I thought I'd share my experience at "The Package" tour.

Some Boyz 2 Men for your day.

And some 98 Degrees

And finally, the headliners, New Kids On The Block.

I will say that Donnie was quite impressive. He still has it. Whatever it is....

It's almost a little sad, but my favorite part was when they covered other songs by other artist. Oopsies.


It's like you were really sitting there beside me, right? Except you didn't have to hear my loud, incessent screams for abs that were shown on stage. I mean, no, I totally didn't do that!

Totally Random Friday

I've been really unmotivated to write anything at all lately, as shown by my lack of posts this week. So today, I'm going to wrap up this week's random shenanigans.
  • I'm currently addicted to spicy snacks. I was on an Archer Farms spicy trailmix kick, and now it is flaming peanuts. Now I'm addicted to flaming peanuts. I just had a package, and my mouth and lips are on fire. So good though. I can't stop.

  • My niece's first birthday party is tomorrow! I can't wait to see her hopefully tear into that cake. Love her to pieces! Come back next week to see what I made for her.

  • I went to a concert Tuesday night. I think my ears are still ringing. It was SO fun!Now, what concert will I be attending next? And I need it to be soon, k?

  • Someone asked me today if I had a loud personality. How should I answer that? I told her that people tell me that a lot. What do you think?

  • I've been on a Pinterest-Crafting kick lately. I've got so much to share with you on what I've made. Come back next week for my show-and-tell. Lucky you!
That's all for today, folks. Happy Friday! :)

I've Come To Realize...

I've come to realize...

...that just because you have a degree in one thing (or two degrees),  it doesn't necessarily mean you'll use them for the purpose  you thought you would.

...that you are going to step on some toes along with way.

...that you aren't going to get along with everyone.

...that you may not wear those shoes much, but it's ok to buy them because they are cute...and on sale!

...that it's okay to admit you are crazy. Embrace the crazy, people.

...that life doesn't go as planned.

...that I talk a lot.

...that sometimes you just have to suck it up and do things you don't want to do.

...that it's okay to say no sometimes too.

...that you only live once, so why not spend that money?

...that it's better to just say it instead of keeping it hidden forever.

...that they were  right when they said it's better to regret the things you did instead of regretting what you didn't do.

What are you realizing?

Hey, Hollywood

Hey, Ladies! (You totally sang that didn't you? And then responded, "Yeah?" Right?)

I wanted to share some exciting news for me this month. I'm hanging out with Holly for the month of June on her blog, Hey, Hollywood.

Hey, Hollywood

Holly blogs about everything, so you are bound to find something you have in common with her. And not only is the girl pretty (I mean look at that face up there), but she's sweet, funny, and I could totally see myself being best friends with her. And honestly, Ohio isn't that far away, so we should totally meet.

So do yourself a favor and check out Hey, Hollywood. Check out my little spot on her blog, leave her some love, and tell her I sent ya.

Happy Friday, loves.

Crockpot Italian Chicken

I've seen this recipe floating around pinterest since the beginning of the site. Finally, I gathered the ingredients and put them in the crockpot yesterday while home for lunch. When I walked in the door that afternoon, my stomach immediately started growling for the chicken. It smelled amazing!

Here's what you'll need to make this super easy dish.

4 chicken breasts
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1- 8oz block of cream cheese
1 packet of zesty Italian dressing mix
box of pasta or rice- optional
mozzarella or parmesan cheese- optional

-Put first four ingredients into the crockpot. Turn pot on low. Cook for 6 hours.
- Serve over rice or pasta. (I chose spiral pasta.)
-Top with cheese.

I also made a side salad to have with my chicken and pasta. It was delicious.

I know this isn't new to the internet world, but it was new to me. I can definitely say I will be making this again and sharing with my family and friends. Yum!

I Just Want to Feel Better

I've got a new favorite song. It's country. It's sappy. And I love it.

I couldn't find an official video, but you can still listen to the song with this one.

I've never actually heard of this Maggie Rose until I was driving to my Nanny's house Sunday morning, heard the song on the radio, and Shazamed that shit. Now, it's on my playlist and on repeat. Constantly.

What do you think?

May Hello Box Surprise

Remember Veronica from Adventures of D and V? She did a guest post last week on making those cute little graduation caps? Well I'm writing about her again, because she is the absolute sweetest!

She was my May Hello Box partner, so we've been emailing and showing some extra love on the blog posts. Last week, I found a box of goodies waiting for me when I got home. It's always nice to find a gift for you after a long, hard day at work.

Thank you so very much, Veronica. Not only was the gift SO nice, but the note explaining how you looked for something you'd seen I had posted previously was the best. How thoughtful of you! I've been using the mug, and love it's little holder, and that nail polish is my new summer favorite! Those sticky notes will come in handy too. Thanks again, V!

If you aren't following Veronica's blog, please do so. She is always sharing a craft or recipe, so you'll love it.
