my cray-cray week in pinterest pins

24 Apr

Do you like my original title up there? Yeah, I came up with that on my own.


I wish I was creative like that! But I’m not… which is why pinterest holds my attention… I can stare at other peoples’ creativity and cheer them on 😉

Things have been caraaayyyzeee at work this week. Or, as we like to say in our incredibly hip office: CRAY-CRAY. (Note: I do NOT say this outside of the office, but it seems to fit how we feel and goshdarnit, we feel cray)

So, here is how this week feels in pinterest pins

haha yup

yep. haha

never fails..



i hate that!

awwwwww baba!

It hasn’t been a bad week by any stretch, but it has definitely been a CRAY-CRAY week 😉


here’s the thing…

20 Apr

I share a windowless office with one other person. I like my co-worker, but we agree that we’d be much happier if we actually saw the world between the hours of 8-5:30.

I have no roommates. Sometimes it’s lonely to go home to an empty apartment every night.

I’m more tired than I know what to do with most days. Which makes me look like a loser to my friends because all I want to do is stay home in my pjs and watch movies. 

My handwriting sucks. I don’t know what this has to do with anything.

I almost locked myself out of my apartment. Which, if you know my apartment you know that’s nearly impossible. 

I really like this one song about being a housewife. But I don’t want to tell people because I know I’ll instantly be judged.

I want to help people, but don’t know how.

I’m over this cold weather. Spring, where are you?

I like caffeine way more than I should. Free espresso at work? This is dangerous.

I used the f-bomb way more than I should have at dinner with a friend last night. Happy and sad and pissed f-bombs. Something I get so mad at other people for doing. 

I’m working on finishing things I’ve started and it’s a slow process. But feels good at the same time. 

Here’s the thing…

…sometimes a girl just needs to be wrapped up in a hug. Ya know?

confession: i fell off the horse

16 Apr

What horse? I don’t even know where the horse went.

So. Bottom line… I have stopped running.

It has been so cold/I have been so tired/I haven’t had anyone to push me/Excuse/Excuse/Excuse

I finished Week 1 and was halfway through Week 2 when I stopped… about 2 weeks ago. I know, yikes. Bad. Sad. Silly. Sarah and Corey have both agreed to be my tough love person with the running I surely don’t want to be yelled at from 200 miles away or by my boyfriend, so I best get to it!

I really didn’t want to run Saturday after having gone to see Hunger Games (which was AMAZING btw) and having nachos, chocolate, and coke. Lots of each of those. But then Corey said he’d go home and run too so even though neither of us wanted to we both would. An hour later I was out running the most pathetic run of my whole running life (ya know, a whole 4 weeks). I walked most of the way, but hey, I was back out there!

Not saying that Sarah and Corey can’t/won’t keep me motivated, but I needed something else to light a fire under me. So I signed up for the Torchlight Run, a 5K in JUNE! June 21st to be exact. According to the website that is exactly 66 days. I can run a 5K in 66 days, right?? RIGHT?!

Here’s to getting back on the horse!

friday words

13 Apr


Can I get an “AMEN!”?

ahahahaha. challenge accepted.

Ain’t that just the worst?

Every single day.

Every flipping day at work.

so true


Be nice

This might be one of my favorites.

it's true <3

Doesn’t get truer than that 😉

everyday of my life.

I can’t help it.


Pardon the language, but you know you’re thinking it too.


I say this to Corey all the time.

truth. haha



Heck to the YES!


Days like this.

Let's be Happy

let’s be happy ❤


bunch of random schtuff.

10 Apr

This is why Sarah is one of my favorite peoples of all stinkin time:

Sarah:  hi love, just wanted to drop by and wish you a good day!

And because I can text her saying that all I want in the whole wide world is a hot dog. When I ask if that’s weird, she tells me it’s not and that I need to get a “hot dog deliver-er” and reminds me that Carters would be super tasty.

Luuuve this girl!


These are some of my favorite lyrics of all time (from the song muh boyfriend wrote for ME. Swoon):

how i love it
when you hold me near
coming close to
your center
i disappear


I’m settling into my new position nicely.

The free espresso helps 😉


My allergies have been eating me alive since Friday. I spent most of Saturday laying around/sleeping and I have felt incredibly sick since Sunday night. Stuffed up/feel like my head is going to blow up it hurts so badly/nauseous. I’m tired of taking meds since it only makes me feel weird sooo now I suppose I just have to suffer through them?

What do you guys do when your allergies get really bad??

HUGE thanks to Corey for rubbing my head 20 times on Saturday, I’m sure it was super weird to do, but it made me feel better.


On Easter my niece ran up to me, gave me the biggest hug, 43 kisses and told me loud and clear that she loves me very much. I wanted to cry she made me so happy… but didn’t because of my stupid allergies. Being an aunt really is one of the best feelings in the world.


My landlord is a jerkface.


I gave in and took some meds. I don’t feel like my head is going to explode or like I’m going to puke… score one for me!


I’m going to see the Hunger Games this weekend! FINALLY!!


book suggestions?

6 Apr

Hi friends!

I have a confession to make: I’m a little behind on my 52/52. Nothing too terrible, just not where I wanted to be at this point. I’m struggling with which books to read and am reaching out to YOU for some help!

Which books are on your must read list?

Which books would you pass on to your best friend with a note saying that they just HAVE to read?

What are your guilty pleasure books?

I want to know what you books you just can’t. put. down. 

So, ladies… spill it! Titles/Authors/Genres… what’s your fave??


You know you’re …. When …

4 Apr

I’ve come across a few blogs/articles lately with the title “You know you’re pregnant when…” and as I read through the bullet points I think I do/say some of those…

And I’m NOT pregnant. 

A few of my favorites…

I eat ALL the time! -Um… me too. Cravings too. I can’t say the word “crave” without people assuming. You know what happens when you assume, right?? 

I am SO tired at the end of the day -Me too. Mine is because I wake up at 6ish, sit all day and that just exhausts me. Legit.

I cry at every movie/show/commercial I watch -I am a self-proclaimed movie/show/commercial crier. Not one bit ashamed either.

I am so forgetful! -What did I come to the store for?

“My boobs feel weird” -I can never tell people when this happens because they go all OMG YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE A BABY! No. I’m not. Someday, but soooo not today.

SPEAKING OF BABIES (i know i know, i wasn’t exactly talking about babies, but so what), check out who I got to spend this entire past weekend with 🙂

would you look at that face! haha… it was RIGHT before a huge giggle 🙂

sunday morning laziness 😉

 this cracked me and Erin up

(NOTE. Don’t get me wrong. I have never been pregnant so I’m not saying that what I do/go through is the same thing. Between my 2 sisters I’ve seen 5 pregnancies so I do know I can’t compare – just found it a little funny.)
