Full House!

I have a crazy obsession with the show Full House. I watched it all the time growing up, and I still watch it to this day.

I may even have a Jesse and The Rippers shirt...

So, you can imagine my surprise and extreme excitement when I found out that Uncle Jesse and the rippers were going to reunite on the Jimmy Fallon show and play!

Here is the video incase you missed it!

Uncle Jesse looks pretty much the same! I was also very excited that Aunt Becky came on to the stage as well!

I really wish they would have a reunion episode!

I will leave you with some very inspiring words from Michelle:

Where I have been.

Hello loves! I know it has been a super long time since I have written but lots happened! 

I have a condition that is called Endometriosis. The Mayo clinic definition of this is: Endometriosis (en-doe-me-tree-O-sis) is an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus (endometrial implant). Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, bowel or the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond your pelvic region.

I also tend to get many ovarian cysts that grow to be bigger than my ovary itself. This is extremely painful. I first developed these symptoms when I was 14. Some weeks, I feel good, others not so much. 

Last month though, I got really sick from this. I was in constant pain and in and out of the E.R. After a long talk with my GYN doctor we decided that surgery was my best option. 

I checked into the hospital on the 24th of June. I was in surgery for close to 4 hours where they removed a bunch of scar tissue and "spruced up" my ovaries. 

I unfortunately am a very unlucky person who ended up with a million and one complications. This included extreme vomiting, a rash, an abscess and finally a kidney infection. 

I am starting to feel a lot better now though and that is all that matters! I have a few pics from surgery day and that's about it. Hard to take pictures when you feel that bad. 

It took 5 hospital staff and 7 attempts for them to get an actual IV in me. Those are the bruises that they left behind. 

So yeah, that's what I have been up too. I will be back to writing more fun and less serious entries soon!!

By the way- David and I went home this weekend to see family and I got to spend lots of time with this cutie!

Influenster "I do" Vox Box!

I realize I have been missing in action for quite some time. I have had a lot happen and I promise to tell you all about it next week!

I signed up for Influenster a few months ago. I wasn't sure I would ever be picked to receive a box but to my surprise I was contacted about being sent the I do vox box!!

I must admit that I checked my mail multiple times a day to see if it had arrived yet.. I promise I am not crazy!

It finally arrived a few days later.

 I quickly opened it to see what was inside.

 I don't wear heels often. I can barely walk barefooted without tripping  much less in something that has any type of height. I did put these in the heels that I do have and they made them much more comfy. I did have a problem though with it not sticking properly to the soles of my shoes and the insole kind of slid around. It could have just been my shoes though.

 Next was these lashes. I have always been intrigued about fake eyelashes but they kind of intimated me and I never took the plunge to buy them. These seemed really nice and I tried to use them but I had a huge fear of gluing my eyes shut so I didn't use much glue. Because of that, they didn't really stick well. I am open to trying again one day soon and hopefully I will have better results.

Then there was this toothpaste. It claims that it whitens teeth after one brushing. It does in fact make your teeth whiter, but it's due to it being more of an optical illusion instead of lasting results. The toothpaste had a very nice taste to it. But, I felt like my teeth didn't ever really feel "clean".  So I would really only use this toothpaste if I was going to a event where I wanted my teeth to look more white, instead of a everyday toothpaste.
I was super happy to see these q-tips! They are a must in my everyday makeup routine. I am awful at doing my eye makeup and constantly have to fix the mistakes I make. These were super helpful because they came to a point instead of a rounded edge. This made it super easy to get into the smaller places that I messed up on instead of messing with the parts that were perfect. I love these and plan on picking up more soon!

When I first saw this in the box, I wasn't sure if I would ever use it. I just kind of threw it into my purse and forgot about it. A few days later, I was at the movies when I started to get a headache. Movies are loud and my headache started pounding. Then I remembered that I threw this in my purse and dug it out and took it. The taste was actually not bad at all and the best part? My headache was gone in 30 mins!  I will be getting more of these soon. It's really easy to just throw it in your purse or gym bag and forget about it until you need it!
Finally, this was in the box. I looked over it and it had some really nice things in it. Unfortunately, being a college student, the prices were kind of steep for me. I gave it to my boyfriend though, and I don't think he enjoyed the hint. haha.

Overall I was super satisfied with the things I received and hope to get more boxes in the future!

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Awkward Situations

Have you ever put yourself in a really awkward situation? I tend to do this daily. I apparently not only attract crazy but also this!

Let me tell you about some of these awkward situations that I put myself into.

1) One Thanksgiving, I was at my friend Anika's house hanging out with her family. We ended up downstairs playing beer pong for a few hours. I had to use the bathroom and went to the door and in my slightly intoxicated state, decided to just open the door instead of knocking like a polite person would. Anika's cousin Charlie just so happened to be in the bathroom at that exact moment. Now, keep in mind that this is the first time I have really met him. So I just swing this door open like I own the place and there he is doing you know, his business. Instead of saying sorry and shutting the door quickly like a normal person would do, I choose to stand there, staring at him. I open my mouth and out comes the words, "Oh, you are peeing". Then stand there for another 5 seconds before shutting the door. What the heck was I thinking?! I was mortified! We never spoke of it though, and I hope we never do. But that is one of those times that when I think of it I shudder.

2) So, I mentioned earlier this week that I was in my friend Meredith's wedding on Sunday. While at the wedding a see a woman that looks exactly like the woman that had altered my dress a few weeks prior. I proceed to walk up to her and say "Heey! You altered my dress!", this woman looks at me and says "No I didn't". She went on to say that she wishes she could do things like that but can't. A normal person would be like oh, I must have been mistaken, but I say something like this: Yes you did, don't you remember?! So, I basically accuse those poor woman of lying. I mean who would lie about whether they did something for you or not? About this time I realize that the woman who did my dress actually had a very thick german accent, and this woman had a very southern accent. I was so embarrassed. My face got really red and I walked away quickly. I later realized that the woman that I verbally attacked happened to be the grooms mother. oops.

I have many more stories of how I embarrass myself, but if I tried to write them all down, I would be here for days!

What is your worst awkward situation?

That One Time...A crack head got into the backseat of my car.

I am linking up with the beautiful Meighan from Heavens to Meighan for this super fun link up!

I spent a long time wondering just what I was going to write about. I decided to go with something that happened to me this weekend!

So, that one time, I was going to go get my nails done with my grandma and good friend, when I realized that my gas light was on. I struggled with whether I wanted to stop and get gas before or go home after and pretend that I didn't notice the light was on. Then when my boyfriend needed to go somewhere then he could deal with it!

But, I decided that I wanted to be a good little girlfriend and go ahead and fill the tank up. So, I pull up to this gas station and get out and start pumping my gas. That's when I heard a woman yell "Hey sexy!".

Obviously she wasn't talking to me because A. I looked like a hot mess and B. Who the heck would be calling me that?

Well I was wrong, this lady was in fact calling out to me. I watch this woman make eye contact with me while walking towards me. When she gets to the pump she says "Let me pump this gas for you sexy." I was a little stunned at this point and didn't get any words out before she tries to take the nozzle away from me.

I manage to get out a no thanks... and that's when it happened. She crossed over the hose and opens my backdoor and proceeds to climb in.

I was in shock, I mean who is this crazy lady, who I am sure is on some sort of drugs, and why is she in my car?!

I turned to her and said I will not hesitate to call the cops. That's when a man appeared out of nowhere and said "Get out of that girls car!"and "We told you to leave and I mean it, I don't want to see you around here!", and just like that she was out.

I seriously had no idea what just had happened. I was in such shock that I sat in my car after ( with the doors locked, obviously) just replaying it over and over in my head.

I attract crazy apparently.

So, because of that one time, I will now always pretend that the gas light is not on!

I suck...

So this post will be just full of excuses. I haven't written in quite awhile, but I have reasons why!

1) I had finals! So many papers to write and tests to take. I think I had nightmares every night about forgetting to do something!

2) In the middle of finals, we had to move apartments. This was an exhausting and crazy two days. We now have David's brother living in our living room until the middle of the next month, which means we don't have enough space for all of our stuff. We have lived here for almost a month and still have lots of things in boxes. Don't judge!

3) David got a job working with Bridezilla's for a week. It was long hours and I rarely saw him. 

4) Our router just decided it had enough and died for no reason. David being the scrooge he is, wouldn't just go to the store and buy one. He had to find one online for the best deal he could find. While I am extremely happy that he watches what he spends, I am not happy that I am internet-less for days and days. 

5) I had to take naps.. I mean come on, this is a huge priority!

6) I was in one of my good friend's wedding yesterday! It was a beautiful ceremony and I am so glad I got to be apart of it!

7) I had to find out where Amy went in the book, Gone Girl!

See, I was busy! Things have died down now, so I now have time to write all I want!!
