Stepping into Spring Swap!

I am a bad blogger and haven't written in days. I am really sorry about that! Things have been so hectic with finals coming up and moving to a new apartment that all my free time has been occupied! Things should be back to normal soon!

I am so excited today though to show you everything I got from the:

I got paired up with sweet Christin from Manicures and Extra Sprinkles! It was so great getting to know Christin! I will stop talking though and go ahead and share with you what she got me. We all know that's what you wanna see anyways!

 She sent me these cute earrings in such cute colors!

 She also sent me not one or two but SIX nail polishes! Crazy Stuff! I am so excited to try out these colors when I have a chance!

She also sent me these cute sandals! I could literally wear them with everything!

Christin also sent me some candy that may or may not have already eaten and that's why I have no picture of it. :/

She spoiled me with everything she got me! Definitely go check out her channel when you get a chance!

My heart hurts.

So much hurt is going on in the world right now. We need to pray harder than ever. My heart is with the Boston Marathon victims, the Texas fertilizer explosions, and now the MIT shootings. I don't know what is going on lately but it makes me so sad.

I will have a real entry later today.

Five Things!

Since I am still feeling under the weather, I decided to steal borrow this idea from Allie who stole the idea from Jen!!

Five things...

... You will find in my bag
1. Aveeno Lotion. ( I can't live without this.)
2. EOS Lip Balm. ( Another thing I can't live without)
3. A Straw and a Plastic Spoon. (I'm not really sure why I have these in my bag or even how they got in there, but I guess I am prepared?)
4. Hand Sanitizer. ( No explanation needed)
5. Tide to Go. ( I spill everything on myself. I should add a bib to my purse because it's that bad!)

...You will find in bedroom
1. My Extensive DVD Collection. ( My number one favorite series in that collection would be FRIENDS.. I watch it every night before bed.)
2. Bottles of Water. ( I drink at least two at night.)
3. My Mac. ( Who wouldn't want that in their room?!)
4. My Pink Desk. ( I never use it though. It ends up being a catch all)
5. My Bookcase ( I read a lot of books. I have a kindle, but I like having my favorites in hardcopy.)

...I've always wanted to do
1. Run a 5k. ( I will make this happen!)
2. Explore Europe. ( I lived in Germany when I was younger but don't remember much)
3. Go on a Cruise ( Any one wanna come?)
4. Be a Mommy (Hopefully I am blessed to have this honor one day)
5. Be crafty.( This will never happen, I don't have a crafty bone in my body!)

...I'm Currently Loving 
1. Rebel Wilson on the MTV Movie Awards. ( Love her!)
2. We The Kings new single "Just Keep Breathing". ( I can't get it out of my head)
3. Dr. Pepper ( Wait.. that is all the time!)
4. Full House (I found a website that plays it continuously 24/7)
5. Warm Baths with my Lush Bombs. ( I haven't been feeling well and doing this feels like heaven!)

...Quirks I have
1. I can't touch cotton balls. They make me wanna rip my nails off. Graphic yes, but it is awful!
2. When driving I obsessively tighten my seat belt. I feel like it should be super tight to me, and if it isn't it makes me uneasy.
3. I have to have all my DVDs in alphabetical order.
4. I like and eat ketchup, but I cannot stand the smell.
5. If I am eating candy, say m&m's, I have to eat all the reds first, then the yellows and so forth!

So that's me loves.. hope I didn't scare you too much with my crazy quirks!

The Over-sharer.

Sorry I have been MIA this week. I am having some health problems and the medicine they gave me makes me soo tired. So I have just been laying in bed watching Full House and Friends all week. Don't judge!

Anyways, lets get started on my post for today.

David and I are currently looking for a new apartment. A few weeks ago, we made a list of different apartments and went and looked at all of them.

The very last apartment we looked at had a very nice lady helping us out. The apartments were at the top of our budget and didn't have washer and dryer hookups. They were also a bit on the small side. They had bigger apartments that had everything we wanted but they were at a ridiculous high price.

Anyway, back to the story. The nice lady, let's call her W, took us a few apartments to show us around.  She immediately went into this story about how her daughter moved to a house of her own and one day that said daughter called her and said she wanted her to come over for lunch. When W got there, the house was a disaster with dishes on the floor, counters, and on the couch. The daughter of the year then said to her mom, "I thought that you could clean for me and I will go to the store and buy things for lunch and then when you are done cleaning, you can cook lunch for us". W apparently told her daughter that she wouldn't do that and left. The daughter didn't talk to her for months.

.... Why is this strange woman telling me about how awful her daughter is ?!

She even went on to tell us about how they don't watch television and that we shouldn't either. That her  husband is on the large side and wont exercise. Also, that she had to go to the pharmacy and wait 35 in line.

I couldn't believe that she kept going on and on about her life. I was so ready to leave.

W has now called, emailed and texted us about the apartment several times a day for like 2 weeks straight. She even called today and said that they had an AMAZING special and thought of us. Sorry lady, I do not want to be anywhere near you!

Has anyone ever dealt with someone like this and what did you do about it?

Please forgive me if this post is all over the place, I am currently on pain medication and a little out of it.

So I watched the movie Bully tonight on Netflix. If you have never seen it then you need too. All I could do was cry the entire movie. I was bullied all through out school and I remember feeling the way those kids were feeling.

It breaks my heart that in todays society you can't really show who you really are because people have put into place a word called normal. I mean what is normal anyways and are we really normal? We all have different quirks and personalities and we all come from different backgrounds. So how do we all fit into this small margin of "normal".

The thing is, bullying doesn't just happen at school and to kids, it happens everywhere! I have seen more cases than I count of ADULTS behaving in this manner! It could be on the internet, at functions, church, playgrounds. It happens all the time!

This has to stop. We are destroying each other. We need to love one another regardless of who they may be. Who cares what ethnicity they are, if they believe in God, who they voted for in the last election or if they are gay. We are human, and we have feelings.

Instead of fighting, we need to stand together and love each other. Be kind to one another. Look past the flaws people have, see the good in them. We all are destined for great things and we need to help each other get there, not thrive to see them fail.

This is why I have decided that I am going to be a social worker. I will be an advocate for these people. I will make a change and a difference. I will stand up for what is right.

Will you?

Never Have I Ever...

While looking at blogs this afternoon I saw everyone doing this link up, and I couldn't resist!

I use to play this game all the time in my friends basement. It got kinda dirty at times, but don't worry it will be clean here!

Never have I ever....

1. Tried lobster. I have seen how sad they looked in the tanks at the grocery store. No thanks!

2. Watched Glee. Everyone I know is obsessed with it, but I have no motivation to even try to watch it.

3. Gone skydiving. Just thinking about this makes me feel like I am going to throw up.

4. Lived alone. I am a huge scaredy cat! I hate even being home alone overnight.

5. Asked a guy on a date. I am a lady after all :)

That's it ladies! I took me forever to rack my brain for these five. I don't know if that's a good thing or not..

Throwback Thursday!

It's Thursday! One more day until the weekend people! 

When I get bored, I tend to look through old pictures. I came across some super amazing lame ones of me from high school. It's okay to laugh at these.. I deserve it! :)

Why did I ever think that this hair color looked good on me?! 

 Again with the hair color.. also what is with my shirt and shoes? I seriously believe I was thinking "Damn it feels good to be a gangsta". Also posing in Walmart apparently screams classy to me.

I may have been a little too excited to be Easter egg hunting...

Apparently when I drink I think this is acceptable... 

 Again with being gangster.. or maybe a football player? I don't know.

Now that I have embarrassed myself enough, it's time to go! I hope you guys have a great Thursday!

Food Allergies.

I have a lot of food allergies. I became lactose intolerant in high school. Thankfully there are pills for that because there was no way I was going to be able to give up ice cream! I did switch a few things, like drinking almond milk and such.

Then, a few months ago, I started getting sick again. Every time I ate, I would get so sick. I went back and forth to the doctors and after a million tests, I found the culprit.


This made me sad because I have a strong love for all things made of bread! Also, a lot of things have gluten hidden in it. There are no pills for this. I had to completely change my diet. It's been hard and extremely challenging.


I have found a few staple items that I am in love with. I also found snacks that I could throw into my purse so if I am at some place that doesn't have something I can eat, I can pull that out.

Here are a few things that I have tried and loved!

Wow.. this makes me look like a five year old.. I promise I eat other stuff than just this! Lots of fruit and veggies!
