Oh Hey Friday...

Trick-or-treat throwback: See 22 old Halloween photos from Flint's past | MLive.com:


Happy Friday people!!! It's always the best day of the week in my opinion. Full of promise for all the fun things the weekend has in store for us. I am really hoping for a tennis win, some good FSU football, a stellar Halloween and the best Bloody Mary in Atlanta for brunch on Sunday! This week totally kicked my ass and I am not 100% sure why but the weekend will be a welcome break. Can you believe we set the clocks back already this weekend? In my mind once his happens the year is pretty much in the home stretch! Maybe it's time to start thinking about Christmas shopping. But not today... let's get to a condensed version of some favorites today with a little Oh Hey Friday action with those farm girls Amy & Karli.

Horrible Football Weekending, Confessions & Hashtags

on
Wednesday, October 28, 2015
Oh Haiiiii... Thought I would stop by for a midweek brain/photo dump random checking  kind of thing. Somehow it is currently Wednesday as you read this and I can't figure out how. Life just seems so fast lately. Anyone else? I am having trouble keeping up with things that are not absolute necessity but you know, it's all good. Translation... kids & I are happy and healthy and the lights are still on at my house. Life is good.

Well... parts of life football were definitely sucky last weekend. I confess my team absolutely, one hundo shit the ACC bed last weekend and suffered a crushing loss to a really shitty ass shit team. The mother facking Yellow Jackets who were 2-5 going into the game some how bent us over and won in the last 10 seconds of the game. This was also excruciatingly painful because I was there to see it live. Embarassing to say the least. Even the 2 flasks of fireball I smuggled in my jeans didn't do much to help. Check off another season of me not getting caught sneaking large quantities of alcohol into football games.  #donthatmecauseyouaintme #iknowallthetricks


This is what it looks like when your team loses in the last 10 seconds of the game. Wrong color on the field.



I confess... I bit the bullet and signed back up for a little on-line dating torture. If you come here on the reg you know I have been kinda sorta hanging out with one person for a hot minute now. It's just not really going the way I planned or thought. I don't really know what I was thinking I just know it's not right for me right now. It has really forced me to be a little more honest with myself and come to terms with what I really want. Since my divorce I have been 1000% anti-relationship, let's just have fun, no committment, no way, no how, no thanks. Now, hold on to your PSL's, I think I might be wanting a little bit of a relationshippy type thing. Did lightening strike? No? Good. Hanging out with only one person and allowing him to get into my life a little made me realize just how much I miss that. Unfortunately the person I spent all of that time with wants something a little different and I don't really feel like settling. Because fuck that noise... I am amazing.... as if I would settle. I'm gonna keep him around though cause I like him, just gonna focus on seeing who else out there might think I am amazing too.


Sooooo.... great news for you guys!! Time to get to dating again. Here is one of the hot prospects. Oh and on Day 2 I already had the first offer for a dick pic or something close to it. Yay!!! I love dating!!! #shootmenow #welcometohell


Jim never texted again. #byegirlbye

Stay tuned for more really good stuff to come!

And here's a few random scenes from the weekend... FSU football in Atlanta, great friends, new tattoos, graphic tees, beer and chicken & waffles. Not bad, not bad at all...

Fall About Me

on
Friday, October 23, 2015

Well hey there it is finally Friday and I thought since Miss Laura tagged me for some more fall fun I would do something a little different today instead of my usual favorites.  I have had another crazy week. Work is a bit insane right now and life just seems very busy which has caused my blogging regularly to suffer a bit. I am still lurking around and reading and thinking about all of the wonderful things I want to blog about though. Maybe one day soon I will get back on some sort of schedule, or maybe not. But how can I resist anything fall and talking about more things I love about fall? I'm a white girl who lives in the burbs so literally I can't. And we are off...

Favorite candle scent - Ususally anything fall food related... but currently Marshmallow Fireside form Bath and Bodyworks. It sort of smells like a burnt marshmallow and campfire all rolled into one. It's oddly wonderful. The concentrated room spray in this scent is actually my fave. If you have not tried these they are the best $$ you can spend to rid your rooms of stinky stuff.

Marshmallow Fireside 3-Wick Candle - Home Fragrance 1037181 - Bath & Body Works

Coffee, Tea or Hot Chocolate - Definitely coffee and tea. Preferably some fun flavored Dunkin Donuts coffee like Pumpkin anything. I only do hot cocoa around Christmas with a generous pour of peppermint schnapps or Bailey's.


what is the best fall memory you have - this is a tough one but I am going to have to say football in general but specifically with my Dad. He would take us to Lions games and even a few Michigan games here and there. It was always so exciting to get to go to a venue so big and see it in person. I remember him and his buddies always having their flasks handy and I also remember him making me go to the men's bathroom with him when I was really little and he wouldn't let me go in the giant women's restroom alone. good times.


Saddest thing ever... this is what the Pontiac Silverdome looked like back in the day and below is what it looks like now.


Best Fragrance For Fall- Burning leaves... I'm gonna go with scent here....where I grew up everyone burned their leaves  rather than bag them up and throw them out. This scent takes me back and I love it!


Favorite Thanksgiving Food - Omg how can anyone choose this? I love pumpkin pie more than life itself on T-Day but also green bean casserole and corn bread dressing in the south are at the top of my list

football games or jumping in leaf piles - I think I covered this already. Football... burn dem leaves up! There's bugs and dog poop in there, I am not jumping in leaf piles.

Favorite Type of Pie - Pumpkin... duh. But fresh pumpkin like my Polish Grandmother taught me to make. We used to bring her our hallowwen pumpkins and she would cut them up and bake them and use that to make her pies for thanksgiving. It is a labor of love and a tradition that I have continued in my home with my kids. There is nothing like a fresh pumpkin pie!


what is the autumn weather like where you live - Bi-Polar. Some years it is still very warm and others it is cold and by that I mean Southern cold like maybe 40's... which I know is not cold at all.

which makeup trend do you prefer? Dark lips or winged liner - Winged liner all the way. I used to do the dark lips but my lips are kinda big and I feel like people are all "who the hell does she think she is" when I wear it. I'm a nude lip girl currently. Like Angelina.


what song really gets you into the fall spirit - My college fight song!



is pumpkin spice worth the hype - Not really at this point. I can take or leave it. I have successfully tried every pumpkin spice thing known to man. Pretty sure.

favorite fall tv show - The Walking Dead ... one hundo

skinny jeans or leggings - Both, all day erry day

combat boots or uggs - Not an Ugg girl, they seem like oversized sloppy slippers. Gimme some combat boots any day.

Halloween: yay or nay - Yay...


fall mornings or evenings - Evenings, preferably with red wine around or in front of a fire with a hot sexy man.

what do you think about black Friday - I don't. I hate crowds and I am not going to fight for any material item when I could be snuggled up in my bed with that man I just mentioned. Oh yeah... where is he by the way.

one fall 2015 trend you love - All the fun cool blanket scarves out there you can make or buy and the different ways to wear them.




Thanks to Life With Lolo for tagging me for this one! Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Linking up with Amanda too cause this is definitely a favorites post too. 


What We Can Learn From Scary Halloween Movies

on
Tuesday, October 20, 2015
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and would you believe it is only 10 days away??? I am also a huge fan of scary movies, but the classics like Friday the 13th, Halloween, Amityville Horror, The Excorcist... you get the idea. The ones that make you laugh a little now because yes,  they are scary but a bit over the top too. Soooo in honor of that and because I am slammed at work, I have decided to revisit one of my all time favorite Halloween posts today. This is really more of a PSA because these are things we all know but apparently bear repeating because in the heat of a terrifying moment common sense is lost. Just lookin out for you guys... you're welcome



If your dream house looks like it's a possessed four eyed bat at night, don't buy it.

If a mass murder occurred in your dream house don't buy it.

If your dream house was built on a cemetery or any type of human or animal burial site... DO. NOT. BUY. IT.

If you're kind of slutty looking the killer is coming for you first. Especially if you have big boobs. And you're alone.

Don't answer the phone when you are babysitting.

If you are in the dark and you hear heavy breathing don't get all excited and think it's your boyfriend.

Grown women should not wear pig tails. Ever.

For God's sake don't trip over things.

The television should not talk back to you.

Get out of the haunted house... just go already!!!

Asking the killer not to kill you rarely works, even if you say please.

If you hear a strange noise don't go investigate alone Nancy Drew.

Don't ever take a shower or try to hide in the bathroom. There is no way out of there you fool!

When travelling in the woods or the desert, don't take shortcuts. Or stop at abandoned buildings.

Don't go canoeing alone.

When the power goes out don't hide in the basement.

If your kid starts speaking Latin, be worried, be very worried.

If it's overly foggy or misty, don't go out.

If a beam of light comes out of the sky don't get out of the truck.

And last but not least aliens, chainsaws, meat hooks, mummies, werewolves, ghosts, shape shifters, cornfields and flesh eating zombies are all signs of bad things to come.

JUST  RUN!

Happy Halloween to all the slutty cheerleaders/cops/witches/french maids/nurses and pirates out there:)

Friday Faves - Fall So Hard...

on
Friday, October 16, 2015
This week has pretty much flown by for me and here we are once again on Friday. Love. It.

So let's get to some favorite things of the week or the past two because I missed one,  with Amanda. My list today is a little weird but just go with me on this.  First Up...

SHOW


American Horror Story - Ok so this is one of my favorite shows in recent history. I started watching Freak Show last year and got hooked. The season premier of Hotel was on last week starring none other than Gaga herself and I am feeling very mixed and somewhat disturbed by it. Which is odd because Freakshow was disturbing too but this was tough to take. I don't want to spoil it but if you watched tell me what you thought. I left feeling unsettled.


SONG

Cause I have a thing about the word crazy, crazy chicks, acting crazy, songs about crazy and I love Bebe Rexha...



FUNNY

This is also a weird thing for a faves post but I have to bring it up. Last week the world of social media lost one of my favorite people Trevor Schlingheyde the hysterically funny human behind @trevso_electric & @dance-blessed on IG & Twitter who made me and hundreds of thousands laugh every day. I don't know what happened but apparently he passed away suddenly. If you have a few moments and need to laugh incredibly hard please go scroll through his feed. I will be drinking a #PSL this weekend in his honor doing some yoga and feeling #blessed. In true white girl fashion. RIP Trev.




FOOD

I make this every year and seriously it is amazing and so easy. 3 Ingredients. Get the recipe here!

Humpday Confessions & Hashtags

on
Wednesday, October 14, 2015
Do you ever go through periods of time when you are just generally pissed off? I'm not talking about shark week either. Lately I am just perpetually angry and stabby. The good news is I know why. The bad news is fixing it is going to take some real intestinal fortitude and will power. Time to get some things in check and get back to being happy-ish for the most part. #ivebeenalazypieceofshit


The cool weather can not come fast enough so that I can start wearing leggings and yoga pants 24 fucking 7. Every day I walk into my closet and just stare at all of them hanging there as I cry while zipping and buttoning my real pants. And I also googled yoga pants for this one and ummm yeah... Kim Kardashians ass is just gross. What the hell??? #datnastyasstho #whatisgoingonhere #whyissherichandfamousandimnot


I got a letter from my mortgage company saying that back in 2010 when I modified my loan I signed documents for 2 different interest rates. Since it was their mistake they are honoring the better rate... 3%... fixed for the life of my loan. And they owe me money. #andthenifelloveranddied #istillhateyouwellsfargo #seestillstabby


Big Confession... I think I might need to start online dating again. I thought I was done for awhile because I met someone cool but something is off. Something just doesn't feel right and I can't shake it. I'm a lot a little sad but then again I don't like this feeling. Maybe I dodged  bullet. I think it would be good for me to meet a few new guys and get some perspective. And free drinks. #andblogmaterial #doingitformyreaders #maybeishouldadoptsomecats


Linking up with Lolo and Lauren for that Hashtag  Humpday thing!
