Alive and Kickin'.

This is what happens when Kyle tells me
to wear something comfortable.

I feel like I just cheated on my boyfriend...
I missed my own link up!

Sorry yall, but I had to take a break from blogging for a day
to catch up on all of my school work and lesson plans.
Did yall miss me?!
Wednesday was awful, and I'm not gonna lie, there were a lot of tears shed..
in my car...on my couch...in the shower...you get the point.
I did a lot of praying and I honestly thought Thursday would be just as bad.
Guess what? It wasnt!

So, I have been so incredibly stressed out because my supervisor was coming to observe me teach a lesson (Thursday) andddd I start my "full teach" Friday, 
which is today, and I just feel so unprepared and behind on planning.
Well, My observation went AWESOME
my supervisor said it was one of the best lessons that she has ever seen. 
Say whaaattttt?
And after school one of the other student teachers came to my room,
and literally helped me plan for 2 hours, 
Like I swear God put an angel inside of her and sent her to me!
Haha she was SO helpful and sweet.
AND THENNNN...
I came home to an even better surprise,
now yall are going to think this is really weird that I was so excited about this.
But I have been needing pencils for like weeks now but have just been too busy to go get some,
I've also needed a water purifier for like...over a year, but I just havent bought one.
So anyways, Kyle had gone out and gotten me these 2 things,
The fact that he listened to what I really NEED, and got them for me,
made me so incredibly happy, it sounds so silly.
But it made my day.


Tonight Kyle and I are going to see The Hunger Games!
Eeeeeee! I am so excited, I wish I would have read the books first though!
Oh wellllll, I'll let yall know how we liked it!
<3

Frown turned upside down.

I cant even express how awesome all of you are!
Seriously, thank you so much for all of the encouraging words yesterday.
Yall brightened up my day/mood about everything going on in my life!
I am so glad I decided to make this blog,
 I never thought I would meet such amazing people!
<3<3

OUTFIT:

Oh, hey hair flip.

Whenever I was home for spring break I got a gift from my sissy!
I've been needing a jewelry organizer soooo bad,
so I was thrilled when I saw this beauty come through the door!
Ta-da!

Isnt it so cute?!
Now I just need some new jewelry to fill it up!

Well, the week is half way over!
Last night I applied to the golf course that I worked at this summer,
I made GREAT money and I loved going to work every day.
I'm really hoping they have some room for me!
Be praying peopleeeeee!
Make it a good day!

struggles.

I'm struggling.
I have never been so overwhelmed with stress in my life.
I graduate in less than 2 months and I have no idea what I'm going to do with my life.
I spent 4 years in college studying education & I dont want to be a teacher.
I feel like I wasted all this time. 
I feel like I'm being forced to make a life changing decision in a short period of time.
I'm terrified.
I've never been this out of shape in my life & I HATE it.
I know I'm not fat, but I cant stand not being able to work out regularly.
I'm constantly exhausted.
I go to bed SO early all of the time now,
And I always wonder if I'm going to regret it,
and feel like I' m wasting my last year of college being a grandma.
But I literally cant help it, I'm just so tired.
I miss seeing my friends all of the time.
I miss knowing who my true friends were.
I miss going to church.
I havent been in such a long time,
I honestly think that's why i've been handling my stress so bad lately.
I've been scared to go ever since my uncle passed away.
You would think it would be the opposite,
It's like going there reminds me of where he is.
But I dont like being reminded of him because I become so full of sadness.
I have no money & no income right now & I'm being cut off the second I get my diploma.
I'm not ready.
I hate the fact that I'm typing this...
because I know I am SO incredibly blessed.
and I know that I have so much to be thankful for.
I'm thankful that my parents have given me the opportunity to get a college education.
I'm thankful that I'm healthy and have the ability to run and be active.
I'm thankful that I have the opportunity to put a smile on kids faces every day.
I'm thankful that I have a place to sleep and food to eat every day.
I'm thankful for the loving & positive people in my life.
I'm thankful for my mom, for teaching me how to treat others, for always listening, & for always having the best advice.
I'm thankful for my dad, for showing me how a man should treat me, & always putting a smile on my face.
I'm thankful for my big sister, we're so different but I look up to her so much, and cant imagine my life without her.
I'm thankful for Kyle, he truly knows me better than anyone, and loves me unconditionally.
I'm thankful for hard times, without them we'd never appreciate the good ones.
I'm thankful for God's saving grace, and everlasting love.
I'm thankful.



Sorry for all of the deepness.
I was having a rough night & needed to vent.
I was really questioning if I should post this or not.
But I figured, I made this blog for ME not for anyone else,
So if typing something out to vent helps me, then I'm gonna do it!
I hope all of yall have a wonderful day!
Yay Monday is OVER!
<3

We decided to be healthy.


See??

Haha okay okay, maybe we had a fat night!
but OHMYGOD, it was delicious.
We went to this little burger place called Chesters, 
where they are KNOWN for their amazing cheeseburgers, 
And yes, they are seriously amazing.
They're also known for their delicious milkshakes, 
but Kyle and I, being the grandparents we are...
wanted to get back to my apt and start a movie before we fell asleep 
so we went for the cheap corner store gallon instead.
Cookies & cream is our favorite.
yummmm.

I dont feel too guilty,
because I got in a good workout the other morning!
Yippieeeee!
My abs are actualllyyyy sore, which doesnt happen too often.
I'm (used to be) one of those people, 
that gets down & does crunches on the floor when watching tv.
I used to do it ALL the time, not so much anymore.
So since I would get little ab work outs in regularly, 
it would take A LOT to actually make them sore.
So I'm definitely proud of myself for actually doing a good enough work out
to make these little baby abs sore! 
Wanna know what I did?!
Blogilates DUH.
Here's the video!

Yall better do it!!
<3

Hott mess.

 

Top & Jeans: Kohls, Shoes: Charlotte Russe, Bag: thrifted

Yall, I went to bed at 9:30 on a Friday night...
What's happening?
I have been SO dang tired lately, I think spring break reeaaalllyyy 
messed up my sleep schedule, ayyy yi yi, I'm dozing off just typing this!

So anyways, on Friday I had to type a few papers before I could get excited about the weekend.
Kyle went to play sand volleyball & I was sad cuz I was stuck inside
on a gorgeous day typing stupid papers.
So what did I do?
I made myself a drink and started typing away...
and then I realized that was an awful idea because I kept falling asleep.
yup, narcolepsy had set in.
Thank God I ended up finishing them, before I really passed out!
Apparently Kyle had been texting and calling me and I wasnt answering...
So he showed up at my house, and found me like this...
(I REALLY wish I had a picture of what I looked like)
Leopard house shoes, Maroon sweat pants, cute dressy top, with a blanky
half on my couch and half on my floor, drooling.
I am a mess.
If you really knew me you would know that I NEVER take naps,
It's literally impossible for me, no matter how exhausted I am.
So when I actually do fall asleep during the day you know I'm REALLY tired.
I heard the door open and a giggle which woke me up, and he was just staring at me,
half in awe that I was actually sleeping, and half in awe of my clothing choices.
Then he took me out to dinner! 
He's a sweet boy.

There was really no purpose to that story...
I just really hate having outfit pictures and not having a story of where I wore them.
Haha.
Hope you all had a nice weekend!!!
<3

I...

I am sensitive. and I hate it.
I want a teeny tiny pomeranian SO bad.
I have the most amazing boyfriend, I never thought anyone could make me THIS happy, ever.
I wish I knew what I wanted to be when I grow up. Did I mention that I'm "growing up" in 2 months? eek :/
I hate that I blush SO easily, even when I'm not embarrassed, if I'm caught off guard or anything it's like my face immediately turns blood red and I can feel it which makes it even WORSE. :(
I fear someone I love dying in a tragic accident
I hear creepy creaks in my apartment NONSTOP.
I search for healthy recipes on a regular basis and have no intentions on ever making them.
I wonder how different my life is going to be in 5 years.
I regret not spending time with my uncle when he was here.
I love my family, my true friends, my life.
I ache from head to toe from a 10 minute work out. Just a wee bit out of shape.
I always think about food, literally like while I'm eating a meal I'll be thinking about what I'm going to eat next.
I usually dont answer my phone, but will always answer a text, I have HATED phone conversations ever since I graduated high school.
I am not perfect.
I dance when no ones watching, when I want to make Kyle laugh, when I drink.
I sing in the shower, in my car, on my couch, everywhere. too bad my voice is awful.
I never want to get old
I rarely drink beer, but when I do, I drink Dos XX. tee hee.
I cry kind of a lot.
I am not always right. There I admitted it!
I am confused about who my true friends are.
I need a vacation & a cuddle session.
I should spend more time with people.
I promise to always be myself, in every situation.

I spent my entire night typing lesson plans,
making presentations 
(more like bsing presentations)
and writing paper after paper after paper.
That's why todays blog post isnt the most exciting thing in the world.
But It's officially the weekend,
which means fun things are about to happen!
I seriously love all of you!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
<3

Throwbackkkkk ;]



Helllooooo Dolls!
Today I'm throwin' it back to last summers family vacation!
Now, let me be very clear.
My family hasnt gone on a vacation together since we went to Disney world.
This was when I was around 9.
It's been a solid 13 years since my entire family has been
 confined in one area together for 5 days straight.
Needless to say we were all a wee bit nervous,
especially because all of our personalities are a lot different,
AND we had special editions with us, Jonathan (brother in law)
And Kyle of course! Yall know him already ;]
We ended up having a really great time & are going to the same place this summer!
So here are a few pictures from last summer!
The girls <3

We spent an entire day on this thing!
SO much fun!

Mom&Dad like to be well prepared.

Awwwww <3

Just being a tourist!


The right side of our view from our balcony!
The left side had a lazy river :]
All of us!
This is in Orange Beach, Alabama! 
I never knew it was SO dang gorgeous there.
Cannnnnttttt wait for August to get here! 
Weeeeee!
Who's throwin' it back with me?!

Target Tuesday Yall!

Yall.
You should be so proud of me.
Not only was yesterday the worst day of the week (Monday),
It was also the Monday after spring break.
Which makes it even HARDER to wake up,
My sleep schedule was all out of whack & there was some boyfriend drama.
(more like me being over dramatic)
Which means this girl barely slept at all, & had to wake up at 5:30.
But wait it gets worse....
I woke up & made my coffee, ya know, the usual.
and then the worst thing imaginable happened.
I opened the fridge to discover that I was completely out of creamer.
So being little miss optimistic I thought to myself,
"Oh, I'll just be healthy & use this Vanilla Almond Milk I have in here"
WRONG. 
It was awful, and I poured it straight down the drain.
All of this being said,
I woke up at 5:30, drove to the elementary school, 
did my best to smile & make my 5th graders happy & taught all day long.
And I didnt die, I actually survived this God awful Monday without my morning coffee!
Wooooo go me!
(I will never ever let that happen again)

But Anywaysssss......
IT'S....
Therefore I went onto Target.com & created some super cute outfits
yay!



Can this be my job?
Creating outfits online, My life would be complete.
I hope everyone had a better Monday than I did!
<3

Best salad ever created.
Grilled chicken pecan salad w/ balsamic dressing.
This is us after 2 Texas sweet teas.
Did I mention that they are limited 2 per person.
Somehow we got 3.
Haha whoopsie!

Meet my Daddy.
He wasnt too thrilled about spending
the entire day shopping.

This is what happens when my mom, sister & I,
are forced to entertain ourselves for
3 hours while my dad buys guns.

I need these shoeeeesss! Next purchase, hopefully!
I cant believe spring break is already over.
It went by WAY too fast.
I had so much fun at home though.
Had some nice quality time with the parents.
And got to hang out with my 3 best girlfriends!
It's going to be so tough waking up at 5:30 every day this week.
Ayyyyy yi yi.
Hope all of you lovely ladies have an awesome week!

I got a few new things while I was home,
so i'll have to do a special post for my new stuffs!
Eeeeee :]

Outfit Post.

Top: TJ Maxx, Jeans: TJ Maxx, Heels: Tillys, Ear rings: Charlotte Russe


love this top.

I kind of wear these jeans every other day.

every girl needs a pair.
Can I just say that TJ Maxx is seriously one of the best stores EVER?!
I always find the greatest things there for incredible prices.
Does anyone else shop there? I'm just a little obsessed.
Todays post is quick & boring.
Tomorrow I'll fill yall in on all the details of how our girls night went
& what happened this weekend!
<3 
I cant believe it's already almost Monday.

New things & Freakshows.

So I know I was freaking out about my hair yesterday...but I think I love it now.

It looks a lot prettier in person, like it has some red/mahogany in it.
What do yall think?!

I also got myself some new glasses!
Well I dont have them yet, but I'll get them next week sometime!
I had the hardest time choosing
but finally decided on these bad boys...

Switching topics...
Last night I was flipping through channels & I came across a show called
 "My Strange Addiction", now I'm sure many of you have seen/heard
of this show before, & I cant say that I have ever actually watched an entire episode.
BUT, can I just say that all of these people are complete freaks.
Like there are no exceptions, these people are psychotic, for real.
Last nights show consisted of,
A young white girl who was addicted to drinking gasoline,
yes, gasoline.
And an african american woman who was addicted to carrying/sniffing
her "doll head".
Not sure what this means?
Let me show you.
 First of all, This doll is absolutely terrifying.
Second, Is this really happening?
Like is she really "addicted" to carrying around a creepy doll head & sniffing it?
Apparently.
It gets worse...As I was watching this show in awe & confusion,
I hear these words...& I quote...
"When me 'n mah man are gettin' intimate..ya know I kinda take a whiff of the doll."
.....what?.....
Is this real life?

On to the next girl.
This poor girl suffers from depression.
So like any other individual she turns to....drinking gasoline?
Seriously girlfriend? It's called VODKA!
At least there's a support group for alcohol addiction.
Not too sure about gasoline guzzling groups
Although, that name really does flow together nicely.

What is happening to the world?

That's all for today, I'm getting the evil eye.
This is my brother.
Sometimes he gets upset when I spend too much time blogging 
& not enough time petting him.

Hope everyone has a fabulousss day!
<3

Pure Humiliation.





Okay, So you know when you were little
you used to have a huge bin full of dress up clothes to play with?
C'mon I know almost everyone had one!
Well...One day My sister & one of our neighbor friends decided that
it would just be the greatest thing if we were to have a photo shoot
in all of those outfits...
ME being the model of course.
Innocent school girl?

Cheerleader

Even got the tongue action going

HAHAHA this one has got to be the worst.
Why did I let this happen?
I feel like I was old enough to know better too,
I wasnt even in my cute stage anymore,
& I let them document this unfortunate event in my life...
Haha OH WELL!
Cant wait to see yalls throwback pictures!


By the way,
I went with a different hair dye last night...
Not the greatest idea, my hair is pitch black.
And i'm not really sure what I'm going to do about it yet....
