Can you believe it’s here? praiseemoji << I’m going to include that in every post I can from now on.

This post is random, so forgive me.

It’s safe to say after last weekend, I’ve been taking it kind of easy. Which included watching a lot of Scandal. At the time I’m writing this, I only have eleven episodes left.

One of the high points of my week was getting a new bookshelf and setting it up in my office. Does this make me old and boring now?

I joined Beauty Box 5, and while I thought this month’s box was decent, I’m skeptical. Pink eyeliner just doesn’t make much sense to me.


You guys, you no longer have to actually date. Because we know dating is hard. You can just have an invisible boyfriend and no one ever has to know.

That’s all I got.

January Favorites

January’s almost over. Of course, it feels like we were just celebrating Christmas and ringing in the New Year. I guess this is what happens as we age. Time flies.

I almost feel like there hasn’t been enough time to have favorite things this month, but I managed to come up with a few.



praiseemoji I’ve only worn MAC Rebel a few times but it will be happening more often. It’s the perfect fall and winter shade. It almost makes me want winter to stay longer… Almost.


I have a new obsession: Bumble and Bumble. I got a sample of their Straight Blow Dry balm in an Ipsy bag, and I was so impressed with it I bought the full size. While I was at it, I grabbed the heat primer. I’m so happy with these purchases, I’m almost positive I’ll be repurchasing them in the future.


I’m no special snowflake. I, like everyone else right now, am addicted to Trivia Crack.


I’ve mentioned before, I’m catching up on Scandal. I’m not quite there yet, but very close. Side note: Am I the only one who gets slightly annoyed by Olivia? And Parenthood‘s finale is tonight! I’m going to be so sad to see it go.


Things I Won’t Be Do in 2015.
I really liked taking this spin on the new year, and mixing a few serious things with silly things. I guess I could also say all my infertility posts. I love those not because of the content, but because of the connections I’ve made with others who have gone through the same thing.


I’m loving Kasey at the Bat. I dig her sense of humor, the fact that she’s obsessed with Gilmore Girls, and her recent photography hobby. Plus, I’ve met her in person, and she’s pretty awesome.

Remember When…

I have to tell y’all something.

Once upon a time, I was not as cool as I am now.

I know, it’s shocking. But I was awkward, quiet (so quiet, people signed my yearbook “Hey quiet girl”)  didn’t have a lot of friends, and I wasn’t allowed to wear the oh-so-popular flared jeans or Limited Too. I did eventually acquire some roll-on glitter so I wouldn’t get quite so many scowls from the popular girls.


Dragonflies and butterfly clips were in, you guys.

Then, once I got to high school, I made a few friends who were just as dorky as I was.



Can you find me?

Band camp was a blast. Despite stereotypes and my flute, I don’t really have any “one time at band camp” stories. I was a good kid.


I even managed to make a non-band geek friend. We’re still friends today! (It’s Nicole.)


She really hates this picture. Post dance show.

You guys, I even managed to get a boyfriend and go to prom.


No, boyfriend is not pictured.

But why did I wear pigtails almost every day of high school?297719_195908967137869_5704921_n299424_195908663804566_6824357_n

And then I graduated.
