The Elusive Shift Drink

Oh shift drink, such a an elusive creature you are.

If you don't know, a shift drink is something that servers love. It's a free drink you receive before or after your shift at a restaurant. 

The problem is, I've never known somebody that's had one. 

Apparently, it's not something chain restaurants enjoy doing. Giving away free alcohol makes them angry. It's all about the $$ ya know. 

I can tell you that after a busy dinner shift, nothing sounds better than some form of alcohol. You need to shake off the shittiness and maybe get a little buzz on. 

That's why servers always go out for drinks after work. And spend all the money we just earned. Which really sucks for us.

My solution? Every restuarant gives a shift drink? Happy servers make happy customers.

Where's my drink at?

Life Lately (july)

Just when you finally start to not remember this blog, I come back.


Since I don't even know where to start I'll just give you a glimpse of what I've been up to lately according to my phone's camera lens.

warning, this is kind of pic heavy. sorry for your eyes.

These are in no particular order

I celebrated my wife's birthday. Not just once, but three times! The weekend  before we had a bonfire. I got to play nurse/mom. Have you ever had a drunk nurse? You don't want one. On her birthday we went to a nice dinner and then had a mini girls' night with some friends. The weekend after we went to JB's Piano Bar. It's a dueling piano bar and I always have such a great time when I'm there. Which until recently, had only been twice. This time I volunteered to be dd because I had to work the next day. When did I grow up? 

I spent time with this spitfire little girl. Oh man, she's growing and changing more everyday. She seems more and more like a mini adult. It needs to stop. She even told me I wasn't cool. Apparently there's a dance to "Turn Down for What". Well, at 23 years old I officially don't give a shit about new dances that go to club music, therefore I didn't know it. But they played the cha cha slide and I told her I knew the dance to that and she informed me that she "Didn't care. It's not cool." Pshhh what does she know.

I got a trim. I meany my my hair got cut off. then I decided to shock everybody and have it straightened. I thoguht you needed a bathroom selfie. I'm so good at this blog thing. It doesn't look to short, but that's because I had nothing to compare it to. But I miss it a lot. I need it to grow out quickly please.

I've spent a lot of quality time with this lady. God I love that dog.

And the majority of the time was spent working. I've worked a lot (for me) lately. And most of the time it's goofing off. Proof with the pretty unicorn cone cups. I hope she never sees the most embarrassing picture of her ever. 

Last night Blake, Teagan, and I had a nice little date night. Then this morning I had the perfect opportunity to capture pictures of this handsome fat boy. Personally, I think they're pretty good for an iphone. Loooove.

Has your life been good lately? Tell me about it.

When I'm Alone

I had planned on not blogging today due to the fact that I couldn't think of anything to blog about. But then I saw that Juliette at The Other Juliette is having a blog every day in July link up going on. So I looked at today's prompt and thought why the hell not!


Today's topic is things you do when you're alone. This could get interesting. 

I'm alone an awful lot during the summer. The mini is at her dad's house every other week and everybody else works during the week. Except me because I don't have a big girl job. So what else is there to do...

For starters, I take a billion pictures of Trixie. Which she hates but I love. If you go through my phone you can always tell when I've been home alone. There are 25 bad pictures of her and about 2 good ones.

Watch proposal videos and cry like somebody stole my candy. What can I say? I'm a sap. I love proposals. But I love mine the most. =)

Pin all the wedding things on Pinterest. Thank god I have a secret board so I don't drive y'all crazy with that nonsense. Oh wait, you don't follow me? Well just click here and you can!

I probably won't wash my hair for days on end if I can get away with it either. It's just too much effort.

The bra comes off as soon as I walk in the door. It doesn't matter if it's open or closed. Buh-bye loser!!! 

Stare at my phone for ridiculous amounts of time. This one is embarrassing. I'm always on my damn phone. It's so bad that I notice it and try to find something else to do so I don't feel like a failure.

Clean my room...but there's a catch. Most of the time I do it naked. I don't know why. It just feels right. Most of the time my room looks like the closet exploded and spit up my clothes all over the floor. So why not add more clothes to the pile? 

What secrets do you have when you're home alone? Link up!

Locked Out

You don't know panic until you've been locked out of your google account.

That's what happened to me last week. Imagine being unable to access anything kinda sorta, most likely important to you. It was a fucking nightmare. No email, no blog, no ANYTHING.

 I forgot my password because I've had to change it twice this past month. And the only way I could get it back was to have it sent to my email address I had on file. Which I also didn't know the password for. Great going right!

I sat on the couch for two hours almost in tears thinking I'd never be able to see this blog again. Thinking I'd never get to talk to the wonderful friends I've made. Trying password after password to be told they were all wrong.

I threw my phone on the floor and went to bed. Woke up the next morning and the first thought to cross my mind was the right password. Figures right?

Basically I'm just saying hopefully I'll be around more this week. And at least I remembered it!
