New Sheets

I think it's safe to say that I'm an old lady. I just bought a new comforter and blanket and I'm super excited for them to get here. I love blankets. I have like 100 of them. However, I've never had a "big girl" comforter set. This will be my first one. I say big girl because it didn't come from Target and it kind of hurt the bank. Not really though. 

Wanna see what I'm getting?? Do ya, do ya??

This picture is terrible looking. When I make it bigger, it just gets blurrier. I don't know how to fix it.

But itsn't it beautiful!!!

I can't wait to get it home and put it on my bed. But I have to wait because I ordered online. And it won't be here until ater my days off I'm sure. So hopefully in the next few weeks I can get it put on the bed. I bought the comforter set which included the bed skirt and two pillow shams and the purple blanket that you see underneath. I can't wait to start buying pillows though! 

In person it's darker and a little more gray than it shows so I absolutely love it. Plus, it looks like it's shiny. Of course I love it. 

I even did the nice thing and asked Blake if he liked it. Ya know, since one day he'll sleep under it too. I would have gotten it even if he didn't like it. pshh. 

The only problem I have is that the coordinating sheet set and the pillow shams are white. I don't want white sheets. I mean, they look good in a nice house where nobody ever sleeps in them but damn I drool all over everything and Blake's massive beard will shed. Plus I just don't want white sheets. I'm thinking of a gray color. 

Have any sheets that you love? Or an idea about what color or where to get some?! 
Please tell me you do!

Life Lately

Spring Break was last week and so I was absent. I mean, I don't get a spring break anymore but I figured it was just as good a reason as any. That and I really had nothing to say.

I figured I'd just update your pretty faces about what's going on right now. Because I'm so exciting like that.

- Spring weather was around a little bit last week. It was a glorious sight. But that winter bitch stole her thunder and just came right back in our lives. I went and got my first pedicure of the season because ya know, when the flip flops come out I want to have beautiful feet. Unfortunately, nobody has gotten to see the prettyness that are my feet yet. Womp womp. That also means that I shaved my legs. That's a big deal around these parts. I hate shaving.

- The prettiest princess in the land turned 6. I can't believe that we've made it 6 years and haven't tried to kill each other. Another post on that to come this week. Hopefully. No promises.

- I've watched Frozen at least a dozen times. I just love it so much. We sing the songs at work to annoy one manager and it's hilarious. It's such a good movie though. And for once Disney isn't shoving a man saving a woman down little girls'  throats. It's a nice change.

- Blake and I did something exciting as a couple and got our first joint credit card. It's to Sam's/Walmart and it's so we can buy a gazebo. Because everybody needs one of those. Or an island. A floaty island that is. They're cool as fuck!

- Pinterest and I have become soul mates again. We broke up for a bit but we're joint at the hip now. I have one pin that got over 100  repins. I was impressed. Too bad it wasn't something to do with my blog.

But of course it was a Sons one.

- Since spring is around the corner (I hope) I've been lusting over sandals. Mostly I'm a flip flop girl but these damn sandals this season are fucking awesome. I love the ankle ones the most. This will be the first pair I get. They'll probably be heavy as shit so maybe my legs will get toned wearing them. I just have to decide what color. They come in gold, black, and white. I'm thinking the gold.

That's it kids. Not much has been going on that I can blog about. One day though, I'll have the longest post ever explaining more about what's been going on. Happy Monday!

Read With Caution

Oh my god yesterday was my first day off in two weeks where I did absolutely nothing. Literally, I ate, practiced shooting Blake's new bb gun, ate some more, and hung out with my loves. There were no chores, there was no blogging. Nothing strenuous happened yesterday and I love it. I need another one like that please!

Anyway, I was going to tell you all how wonderful my daughter's party was and show you some interesting pictures, buttttt I remembered that today is the day to link up with Amanda and Danae and tell you some of the stupid shit my loving boyfriend says.

Duh! Danae!

Just a warning, it may get a little sexual in here today. Mom, Dad, Family, don't say I didn't warn you. Lovely blog friends, if you're offended easily, I'm surprised you're still here.

First, a little back story. Blake is a perv. A stage 5 perv. Anything you say can and will be turned around to make it sexual. If I say I'm hungry, he replies "I have something you can eat."....etc. everything.That's about the tamest one so I won't tell you anymore. I've gotten a little better and can now say a sentence without him turning it around at least once a day. No more though. I'm not that good.

Anyway...a couple of months ago I was sick and I really wanted some miso soup from Japanese Steakhouse. It's all that sounded good. I went to our local Chinese restaurants hoping to find some but I had no luck. So I text Blake something about how he should get me some miso soup after he got off work. He lives 10 minutes away from said restuarant. And this is the reply I got.

*i'm in green. I had to steal it off of my instagram. Sorry.

Yup, that seemingly sweet charming man is really a perverted man-boy. All the more reason to love him I guess. 

Thursday, March 6, 2014


Oh man, it's Thursday. My first day off this week. Hallelujah. I love days off. I mean seriously who doesn't? Especially when your job isn't your favorite thing.

So I entered Blake and I in a local contest for the cutest couple blah blah blah. I don't normally do that kind of thing but the winning couple gets a date night out of it. So I figured why not. You were supposed to use a cute picture and I used a simple one because it's just "us". And then I was supposed to write something about us but I suck at that. I can be all mushy gushy but I can't write it in words. Why am I a blogger again?

You see, there's a reason I told you all of that. It's kind of been a rough time over here. Not really bad, but bad enough to make me feel bad. There was a tiff on Friday night and then yesterday morning I got all upset over some news he told me about his work. It wasn't even bad news. It was great news for him. I got upset because it got me started on how I don't like my job and I was jealous of him. I didn't want to come out and say it but I ended up telling him what was wrong. I could see the hurt in his eyes when I wasn't as happy as I should have been about what he was telling me.

Then I realized that I haven't been the greatest girlfriend that I know I can be. I've been all down in the dumps and taking it out on him. He's never said a word about it but I know I've been bitchy and naggy. I realized I needed to snap out of it and focus on being the best girlfriend I know I can be. So today, I'm going to focus more on what he says about work. I don't do a great job at that. And I should. 

His work really matters to him. He loves what he does and the company he works for. I read something, sometime about how a man sees things in a relationship. They want to be commended for the hard work they do for their families. Men see work as a way to help their family out. I don't want him to think that I don't care about what he does.

I'm going to make a better effort at this girlfriend thing. Even though my life isn't where I want it, I have him and he is more than willing to help me get there. I need to be more supportive of all that he does. All of my resentments lately have been about his job. And it has to end. I won't resent the work stories anymore. I won't pretend to listen as I absentmindedly scroll through my newsfeed and instagram.

I may not be perfect, but I can try. Everybody wants someone that will listen with enthusiasm and if I - the one person that has told him for over 4 years that I'll always be hear - can't/won't be that person, who will?

Damn He's Fine

First of all, thank you to all you lovelies who commented on yesterday's post. I really didn't want to post it but after I did I felt a little bit better. Sometimes you just have to put it out there. I've always said I'd be honest and real about my life. And lately I was writing a whole bunch of fluff to avoid writing about what was really going on in my life. I just couldn't do it anymore. And while my problems are still there, I feel better.

Anywhoodles, I'm going to confess some more shit. But it might be a little easier to read for you.

- Blake broke the remote to the tv/dvr on Friday night. We went all weekend long without a remote but believe me, we went out and bought one on Monday. We have Dish Network and I knew that they sold those remotes. FOR 30 FREAKING DOLLARS. So we got a cheap one. And I hate it. So I'm saving up to buy a remote like our old one. Is that pathetic?

- I never listened to 30 Seconds to Mars unless they were on the radio, however Jared Leto is so fucking sexy. Serioulsy he has the best hair, he loves his momma, and did I mention he has the best hair? Oh and he makes a pretty girl. I need to watch Dallas Buyer's Club now. And he celebrates an Oscar win with what other than Subway!

- I've started to watch a new show. OK, two of them. both are HBO shows. Because when you don't have a remote, you have to stand up at the dvr box and push all the buttons so it's easier to turn on the x-box and watch some HBO Go. Six Feet Under is weird but hilarious. And True Detective. I'm not so sure about that one.

- Teagan's birthday party is Saturday and I'm kind of excited but kind of not. I mean she's gonna be 6 next week. Eeeep. Six! And really, who wants to spend 2 hours with 15 other 6 year olds that aren't yours?? Not I said the cat.

That's it today. Not really deep seated confessions but I think I went pretty deep yesterday. See ya tomorrow.

Life Lately

Well, that life thing sure does just swoop on in and kick ya in the back of the knees sometimes huh. 


Things aren't all butterflies and rainbows for me right now and it really sucks. I've got a lot on my mind and a lot on my heart. 

Some morning it's all I can to get out of bed and make it to work. What doesn't help is that work makes me hate life just a teensy bit more than it should. I love but seriously hate my job anymore. I really didn't want to put this out there but I've re-written this blog post 3 times and every time it's just kinda slipped out of my fingers. I won't be sharing this post on my personal fb. 

I know that if you hate your job you should find a new one. But is it really that easy? All I know is the restaurant industry. And part of me loves it. But part of me wants to have a normal schedule of 8-5. I want to come home and see my kid at night. I want to cook dinner and have a routine. 

I can't decide if I should follow through with the whole pharmacy tech thing. What if I hate it? What if it's super hard and I don't get it? I have so many what ifs and I need to decide what to do by the end of the month. Because if I do go, then I need to stick with OG because well duh, let's not rush out and get a new job and start a new school at the same time. 

Then there's the custody issues we're trying to work out. I can't mention a whole lot about them because we're not close to being finished. However, some of the things that could happen scare the piss out of me. 

I'm not trying to be miserable. It's just a bad time right now. It'll eventually get better....right?
