Monday Funday?

Eh its Monday, back to the grind and the same old. Actually it wasn't too awful today i finished my work super early and now I'm down to just 2 hours left of work.  I'm stretching the last one thing i have left to do. I don't feel like working too hard and my share is done anyways. So this weekend wasn't too awful. 

Friday I get to my car to go home and find a dead battery, luckily i have my parents. My mom came and picked me up and I went home a bit sad but none the less the wknd had begun. I got home and my uncle from California had snazzed up my entry way. He put little solar lights around my walkway a little gate for my tree, he hung up a beautiful "hope" sign, a small birdhouse, two plants, a wind chime, new Welcome mat and a small puppy holding a welcome sign on the front porch. It looks sooo adorable. I felt so blessed. It was his housewarming gift too me, i think he felt my entry was too bare and honestly it really was.  It hadn't had that homey feel to it. Honestly with everything going on i hadn't even been able to do anything like that. It was such a nice gesture i absolutely loved it.

Saturday we had a BBQ since my uncle was here and a few of the family came over we had steaks baked potatoes we chatted and gossiped and laughed. Then had homemade s'mores fresh roasted marshmallows, they were delicious. It was possible the most sweetest thing i have ever had and had to wash it down with a cup of milk but they were great! I loved it and definitely want to do that again soon! So much family has me so blessed and its so easy to forget. 

Sunday i got up and went to the matinee of "The Heat" with Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy, i needed some me time to just do my thing alone. To kind of breathe and step away from everything. It was funny, not quite Bridesmaids funny but it was a good one.  I decided to make that my little Sunday routine. Just getting up and going to have a matinee on Sunday mornings from now on. I loved going to the movies and i have kind of stepped away from that in recent years and i want to start going again and the Sunday matinee is best because there are so many ppl who go at that time alone and also because its only $6 lol! Gotta be frugal here.

I'm trying to be positive and stay happy and for the most part i am succeeding quite well. I've had a few moments and i see myself sad sometimes but for the most part i look forward to what my future has in store for me. I know its going to be something great. :) I've never been an optimist but i feel it in me now because i know it going to happen for me. The only down side to all of it is that i don't think ill get to be a mother afterall. This is something that i think about, i don't want to have children at 30 so if i dont have a child by March of 2016 then it wont happen of all things i struggle with that. But i think that its still possible, anything is really. 

So now to just continue to save and hope for the best we will see what July has in store for me. In 4 weeks i will make a decision on what to do as far as the vacations go. Ill keep you posted.

Haven't Yet Decided

I'm not really sure on the direction this blog is going to take but i'll just roll with it. 

Long couple of weeks, all sorts has been going on. Most of it i don't want to talk about I'm still dealing with it. 

I feel like spending this wknd watching movies, maybe not leaving the house, buying shoes i dont need, finishing craft projects. All sorts of things i want to do but at the same time i want to do nothing at all. Weird huh? 

I feel bad, guilty. I put a lot of eggs in the Spurs basket last night. I needed that win, just to lift my spirits which wasn't fair but I just needed a boost. Then i feel so bad, like i personally victimized them to make it all better because i was down. lol.  God can you tell i love my team I'm feeling guilty for wanting them to win & being sad when they didn't. They had a GREAT season, they played their hearts out and they are still my team. Nothing will change that ever.

Pinterest, man i cannot express how amazing pinterest has been to me these last few weeks/days. Its like so lame i realize but when i get down or I'm allowing myself to pity myself and to wallow i get on there read some quotes or funny shit and it just lifts me up. You have no idea how the right words can help, and the best part is you get both sides its like motivating you in both directions and then you realize which way you want to go...I know that sounds far too deep for a pinterest paragraph but seriously sometimes others cant help and you need to work it out in your own mind.

I have like 3 craft projects going on and i am determined to finish them this wknd before i start anything else! Its crazy, so i am working on crocheting my blanket then i turn around and start working on my photo album (from 2011) to give my hands a break then i stop and i got a puzzle my sister gave me that I'm working on now and I'm just like okay i have 3 different things going on in my house i need to pick one and go from there! lol i think ill work in reverse as the puzzle should be easiest.  But i like having little things to do helps me to be productive with my time. There is really only so much you can watch TV.

I have decided to set a couple of goals for my weekend... I want to grocery shop, see a movie, buy some shoes and finish my projects. I'm seriously going to try to make breakfast on the wknds and cook for the week also. I'm not going all healthy or extreme lifestyle i just want to make better choices with my money because i really am saving my heart out for the cruise & Vegas.  However i'm not sure both of those will be happening, the cruise for sure but Vegas is up in the air along with my broken heart once again.

But i need a vacation and i am so proud of myself for planning it. I deserve it, especially after the loss i suffered this year. But i am excited & so happy for what is to come and I am certainly looking for a long relaxing wknd!

Girls

Okay I need to blog about this show because it is just so amazing! I really didn’t want to give it a chance originally I had seen the end of the pilot and I was like okay this is weird but I’ve been hearing rave reviews and the main character Lena Dunham won a Golden Globe for her performance and I just love her she is so real when she gave her speech I was like I’ll give it a chance.


I saw 3 episodes yesterday; (starting from the beginning) it was the funniest shit. Like I busted out laughing a few times and that hasn’t happened with a show in quite some time. It takes a bit to make me laugh like that. It was really enjoyable, so I will give my little critique.

The girls are like real girls I kind of feel like a Hannah/Marnie combo but I’m still learning who they are. The only one who we don’t know too much about it Jessa who's accent is like a come & go type of thing. Lol. But they are all really awesome in their own way. Poor Shoshanna is ditzy as hell and so cute, and Marnie the responsible and Hannah who degrades herself for that dude Adam who I really don’t like but I can get with it. It’s just really a real show and the shit they say is funny and I can’t wait to see more of it.

Starting this show is really great timing for me. Like I needed something awesome like this in my life right now. Something that makes me laugh and is relatable. I felt so good after I watched those episodes I would have stayed up all night to finish them but I was like I better read a chapter & get to bed. I’m filling my time and its helping me. I’m so excited to have this show. :)

Today I start the part time so wish me luck! I am so excited to know I’ll be earning about $150.00 in the next two days. Lol I realize that’s petty but I need to bring in some extra income like you wouldn’t believe.
