Being a Girl

Today, was definitely one of the girliest days I've had in a long time. And I loved it! Next time I wont wait as long. I know that doing things I love makes me a happier person, and I need some me time. I feel so much better.

See, I really am a girlie girl at heart. I've wanted to do a current obsessions post for awhile and now it has fallen into my lap. This makes it an even better day!

First though, you might be wondering what made today so great and I'm gonna tell you.

Today, was my g-ma's birthday. And we're really close. I love her so much and I don't think I could ever express my gratitude enough.  I just hope she knows in her heart how  thankful for everything she has done for me. I know I can be a huge irrational, annoying brat at times, she puts up with it. And it's amazing.

So, I called her first thing this morning of course to tell her Happy Bday. She invited me, my munchkin, mi madre, and my seester all to pedicures. And they fucking rocked! It had been so long that I just was in heaven. It was also Tea's first time to get a pedicure. She's only 4. That you should tell you about how spoiled she is. And the best part of all of this was that it was a girls' day, with family. They don't happen very often and it felt great.

I love how she is truly paying attention in this picture

She was so excited!

My sexy toe. No edit. Hahaha, jk I'm really showing off the fabulous design I got.

After a relaxing morning at the nail salon it was time to get a little something to eat. Momma, Munchkin, and G-ma and I all went to ..... (huge build up) McDonalds!!! (huge let down). lol. We knew we were going out to dinner later and they didn't want a lunchable so that's what we did. I was fine with the lunchable since I'm trying to be sort of health concious. lol. I had a snack wrap. It was ok.

Then it was time for one of the best parts of the day...nap time. I can't nap for more than 20 minutes right now. I don't know why it just seems to be some kind of insomnia I'm going through. My mind won't quit racing and finally it does and 20 minutes later I'm awake and I don't know why. It sucks. But, it was quiet time. Ahhhhh. I love it. Teag took a nap for once and I was in heaven. I didn't sleep much but I did just lounge around in my bed. Much needed!!!

I got up and it was time to get ready for a birthday dinner. =). I love special dinners. It doesn't matter if they're at home or out, I love them! We went to Applebee's. Normally I'd have a steak with parmesean and shrimp but I decided to change it up. I had the blackened steak penne. Steak was great....pasta and alfredo SUCKED. I was so disappointed. I never change what I get and now I remember why. Grammy (what teagan calls her) opened her present from us. Her and Tea are closer than she and I are. I got her a book that she could fill out and give it to Teagan when she is older. She liked it. And Tea's excited. So I'm happy. =) Of course they sang happy birthday to her...and she got to be 29! That's exciting. lol.

Then it was time to go to boyfriend's house. I promised I would make him some tacos so I came home and cooked. I'm into cooking right now. I go in phases. lol. It took him forever to get off work and make it home. While I was waiting I decided to do a little cleaning. I felt like real wife. lol. It's his parents house but they are out of town, so we are playing house. He finally got home and ate. Then he did the coolest thing....told me to go and get myself a bottle of wine!! Woot woot. I scored this time. lol. He even paid for it. =).

And that's the perfect girls' day. Hell yes! How relaxing and wonderful. I couldn't be happier.

I said I'd tell you about some of my current obsessions. These things make me smile soooo big. I hope you find something happy in them too!

I could keep going but then I wouldn't have another current obsessions post to do. There's a litte bit more about me and

Adult Awesomeness

So, awhile ago I signed on to get Mama Kat's writing prompts sent to me every week. I hadn't really given it much thought until this week when I saw one of the coolest prompts she had as an option. It's 6 awesome things about being an adult.

Well, almost everything is awesome. But here are my top 6 favorites.

- I basically do whatever I want. If I don't want to do my homework, I don't.
If I want to sleep till noon, I do (when I don't have tea)

- Alcohol. I'm not gonna lie. Being able to have a drink and people being ok with
it just rocks. Hello wine and margaritas!

- Our own houses. I don't have one of these yet, but sometimes when I'm alone I pretend.
Hahahaha. Don't judge.

- Making my own rules. Including but not limited to
- what's for dinner
-when to go to bed
-what to buy at the grocerer (hahaha, love that word)
- how to make my bed
-where stuff goes

-My adult toys. Not dirty ones you pervs! lol. No, like my phone,
tv, car, and even stuff like my blankets.

- Having a job. I love having a job. Being between jobs has really
shown me how much I love it.
I love the feeling of the responsibility. And the money.
Who doesn't like those two things?

So that's my 6 favorite things about adulthood. At least for the time being. lol.
Link up and tell us what yours are!!!

I wish this was a joke...

I bought a swimming suit today.....for the first time since I've had my daughter. 4 whole long years. It's a size _______ . (I'm not ready to tell you what size I am). The same size that most of my non-junior size clothes are. And in some was too small  =(. Wanna talk about being discouraged? Because I'm way up there.

I have a problem with my body. Not gonna lie. I know it's my own fault and I need to change my ways and there are no excuses. It's just not that easy. For all of you who are scoffing "Oh, this bitch needs to get over it and just do it.", well fuck you.

See, I have a terrible body image of myself. I see a different person when I look in the mirror. Everybody says that I'm not that big, but it sure does feel like it. I look 5 months pregnant in my head. I know that I have huge boobs so nobody really sees how flabby I am, but I do. And I feel gross. I think about how my stomach looks all day, everyday. It's always in my mind...most of the time the front, but sometimes in the back. But I still know it's there.

Ok, don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with being bigger if you're comfortable in your own skin. I think it's wonderful when women can be proud of being a size that society considers "plus-size". However, I can't get behind that for myself. Please don't think that I think every woman needs to be a size 4. I don't feel that way AT ALL.

I don't like healthy foods. I know I should suck it up and eat them anyway...but who wants to eat something they really don't like?? I can't stand lettuce. The texture, taste, smell, and everything about it is just disgusting. And texture is a big thing for me so I'm not a fan of a lot of veggies or fruits. So I have to try portion control. It's not the easiest. Nobody likes to be hungry...and portion control can leave you feeling that way until you get used to it. And exercise....I LOVE LOVE LOVE exercising. But for some reason, I just can't get myself motivated to do it.

I always look at the size of other women. And I always compare myself. More often than not, I'm feeling "Ugh, I wanna be tiny like her." It's not on purpose, it's just what I do. And it's not just once a day. It's all day. Every where I go.

I don't really know why I wrote this post. But I feel better admitting it. I need to make myself feel better. I know I do. I just wish that there was an easier way. I could do lipo....hahaha kidding! But sometimes I think about it ;).

So yeah. I'm not going to ask you what I should do. I know what I need to do. And I'm definitely not looking for "oh, your fine and cute and stuff" compliments. Thank you, but no thank you. Encouragement is welcomed though! lol.

Get to Know Me!

I've decided that you guys really don't know a lot about me. I don't have any tabs and I don't think I've posted an about me post either. I thought that this would help a lot!

Getting To Know You
This link up is found over on Stuff I Love. A really fab lady named Cat is who lives
over there.

1. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
Honestly, I have no idea. I used to say "and stuff" at the end of everything
and I didn't think that was enough for a blog title. However, it may get a change, because
I'm not sure if I like it or not.

2. What inspires your posts the most?
My brain really. And getting some more readers. Those two really inspire me.
Yeah, people say that readers don't matter, but who wants to write
a public blog that people aren't reading? And the rest of the
time I'm writing what I feel.

3. What is the greatest challenge you face when blogging?
Oh my, since I'm so new at this, there really are alot. Keeping up with posting and reading
other blogs are a huge challenge right now. I don't want to post too little and lose my readers.
Also, the design of my blog is still a template from blogger and I've been trying to decide if I should
pay somebody to spruce it up.

4. Besides blogging, what activities occupy your time?
Well, up until 2 weeks ago I've had a fulltime juob for 2 years and a part-time job for 2 years.
I worked at the same place for 4 years. I am currently in between jobs and I hate it.
I'm about to start my 4th year of college in the fall. I should be a senior, but I'm not. This is because
I have a 4 year-old. So mothering, school, and a job used to occupy my time.
If I do get actual free time there are a few things I'll do.
- sleep ;)
-i love to read
- shop
- catch up on bad tv
-have girls' nights

5. What got you into blogging in the first place?
School did. It was an assignment for my online english class to start and post in it 2 times a week.
I ended up falling in love with it. And it's taken off since then.

6. Do you have any special projects on your blog? (linky parties, charities, events, weekly posts, etc).
Not that I have created, no. I do link ups and like to stick to them
every week. I would like to start a weekly post though. I may do that!

7. From where do you post?
Most of the time on a couch. At my boyfriend's house. In Missouri. Joplin Metropolitan area.

8. Do you have any blogging words of wisdom to share?
Since I still consider myself a newbie, not really. However, I do know
that this is about you. It's whatever you want it to be. Don't conform to what everybody else
wants. Be 110 percent you (cliche I know).

....more next week.


I haven't ranted in a long time but I'm about to. If it offends you, sorry. I can almost promise that I'm not talking about you. I don't know whether or not to link it up to Friday's Letters or not yet.
I have decided to because  I looked back at it and thought it was hilarious.


Dear Pregnant people,
 We know you're pregnant. You tell us everyday on all types of social media. Please just give it up for a minute.Tell us how the rest of your damn life is. I love the weekly updates about things that I've seen on blogs but my fb newsfeed is blowing up and I'm getting pissed! Oh, and what the hell is with making your child be born when you want them to be. Shit, a "due date" is an estimation, unless you happen to know the exact day you conceived. When the baby comes the baby comes. Slow your roll. You'll miss it. I know there are exceptions and I completely understand that. But it seems here recently that everybody is in a damn hurry. If you don't like being pregnant and you don't have complications, then don't spread your damn legs.

Dear blank,
I can't believe you did what you did. I'm embarrassed now. Ugh. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right??

Dear Pizza Hut,
Hahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I know I shouldn't laugh at your misfortune, but I heard stories of how your doing today and I don't feel bad one bit. I was promised that we would get more staff and you didn't keep that promise. Now you have shitty staff, a shitty store, and customers who refuse to come back. Who's fault is that one? You treat your employees like shit and then you get shit.

Dear Advisor,
I really hate the class you put me in for the summer. You didn't even ask me about it, you just did it. That's irritating. I know I needed a class this summer, but you could have asked my oppinion. Oh, and I didn't even need it either. That's irritating. Blah.

Dear karma,
I'm sure you're gonna bite me in the ass for this post. If you wouldn't that would be great. I already can't find a damn job and I think that's enough karma for now.

Dear Boyfriend,
You're pissing me off lately. Please quit it. I know that you're doing it on purpose and you think it's funny but it's not.

Dear body,
Why ya gotta be so gross? I hate how much weight I've gained and I know I need to fix it myself but shit....could you make me feel hot like ever?

Dear fb friends,
Why are some of you so fake? I'm not even getting into details.

Dear blog,
You're a full time job and I really need you to slow down. I guess I didn't realize what I was getting myself into. I'm gonna have to start planning and scheduling a couple posts a month because I can't be on here everyday. That makes me sad =( And I know that you won't slow down and I'm really actually glad you can't in the bottom of my heart. I love how I'm finally getting some readers and some page views! Woot Woot!

Dear different blank,
Ha! When I say no and I tell you that I'm right, just know that I know what I'm talking about. If I went into more detail people would read all of my drama and I don't need that right now. When I get the balls to talk about it I will. Actually, I have them now, but I don't want you to find out about this and use it against me. Effff off.

Dear loyal readers,
I love your faces! Thanks for letting me rant. It felt good. Hope you don't mind...but it is my blog so I can do what I feel needs to be done. Anddddd.....I'm almost to 1,000 blog views. I know that there are only 19 of you (some of which don't blog anymore) so really less than that but should I do a give away?? When I reach 1,000 views?? Any insights??

Here's to bitchiness....where would we be without it....and

A Review and Sweet Ass Link Up

Oh my that's a long title!

Last night I went to the drive-in here in town with my momma and the kiddo. *sidenote* that probably won't happen again this year. That's a story for another time. Anyway, we saw Madagascar 3 and Snow White and the Huntsmen.

They were both good.

I'm gonna talk about Snow White though.

This movie was really good and I honestly wasn't expecting it to be.
I'm not a fan of Kristin Stewart and I think that she has no talent.
Yes, that means I don't like Twilight. Sorry to hurt your heart.
There was some good, and there was some bad. But the good definitely outweighed the bad.

I'll start with the cons.
- Kristen Stewart lol
- It seemed to pull from a lot of other movies. I saw some Robin Hood,
Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings it seemed.
- The fairies looked like Gollum. I love fairies and these things
were fucking creepers. I was a bit disappointed.
See what I mean?

- The scenery was awesome. They had a beautiful set or wherever they filmed was amazing.
- Story wasn't too fairytale-ish.
Now, I love me some fairytales but damn they can get annoying.
- Hot man ass
He can hunt me and then fall in love with me too!
-Charlize Theron's acting

It was a good movie. Like I said, it wasn't very fairytale at all. Well, the story was but not the setting.
All in all I give it a B+.

Now, on to this sweet ass link up. I was just browsing through blog land when I landed on Shane's blog
Whispering Sweet Nothings. She's doing this really cool link up called Bloggers Coast to Coast.
You tell her where your from and she has a map of the US with blue pins from every blog.
It's a great way to find bloggers close to you!

Look into it! I found 2 bloggers only an hour away from me! I thought that was really awesome.
Well...that's all for now....and All That Good Stuff!

Hey y'all...remember that Book Swap that I joined a little bit ago? It was hosted by Miss Angie over at My So Called Chaos and Beth at Living A Goddess Life. I think that they had the best idea ever! I love books so I was excited.

And kids, after what seemed like an eternity - it was only 3 days- my books came!!!

My partner was Miss Angie from My So Called Chaos.
And she did wonderful! Here's a pic of my haul.

1. Ophelia
2. Water for Elephants
3. The Four Agreements

A Book She Loves

Miss Angie loves this book and I bet that it's good. Just reading what it was about was exciting!

A Book I Want!

I was so excited that she sent this. I was really hoping for this one. This girl can read my mind. I'm
half-way through it too. lol. =)

A Book She Hadn't Read

I'm actually pretty sure this was on some wishlist too. =)

All in all....she did wonderful! I'm so happy with what I received and I can't wait to
do this again. Hopefully that happens!

And finally...I got a pretty sweet partner. It's like she could read my mind.
And I'm glad to have a new blogger friend too.

p.s. I know we were supposed to put the code on here for the book swap and I tried.
However, everytime I tried it was a button for Miss Angie's page. So...Idk..Sorry!!

Team iPhone

Ok, so I know I've told you before that I'm totally team iPhone. And I have been for three years. I love the damn thing. Even when Siri is being a total b. It just suits me and it's so simple.  One thing that bugs me the most is that I think it's kind of childish looking. Apps look like they are made for kids sometimes. Other than that...I love the damn thing.

So I figured I would join Many Little Blessings  for Top Ten Tuesday! I'm gonna tell you the 10 apps I couldn't live without right now!

What can I say? I like to know what exactly is going on with my money.
I don't have a job right now and I have to make sure
I stay on my budget.

Haven't been very many these days....
I know I shouldn't whine...but stop by and say hey.
