81, 82 and Counting

Today Clint and I went out to his grandparents ranch to celebrate his Grandad Riley's 81st bday and Granny Mary's 82nd bday. They are the cutest couple ever! We actually got married on their 60th wedding anniversary! We BBQed and ate outside, and everything was just so yummy. On the ride up there Clint and I just gabbed about stuff like we usually do. We got to talking about me getting a teaching job (hopefully) and a change in my wardrobe. I work in a juniors clothing store, so I tend to wear lots of clothes from the store because I get a discount. Clint informed me today that I am getting too old to wear some of that stuff lol, and I kinda agree. So I looked into a more sophisticated style. I love all these looks! I just wish we had an Anthropologie and JCrew here...

it would be so nice if something would make sense for a change

Today has been a rough day, between my niece having a fever and going to the hospital to my mom and sister not getting along and everything in between. So I am enjoying some wine and I am about to bake cookies for work tomorrow....hopefully I'll survive this weekend and my family. So here are a few sad pictures, for you know when you feel like i bought decaf coffee on accident today too :(

I'm Just A Girl...

Good Morning! Another Day, Another Dollar. lol I am just having my morning coffee before I get ready for work, and trying to wrap my brain around studying for the big test I have coming up in a month. How do you make yourself study? Any tips on studying? I stink at tests b/c I'm used to not taking them, and I usually cram right before and just memorize things lol. But I can't do that for this one, so I am making a huge effort to learn learn learn!

One of my best friends in the whole world is going to come live with me for a while soon, we are going to have so much fun!
This is a picture of my life! haha I have so much stuff that I need to clean out and get rid of. Are you one of those people who just accumulate stuff and never get rid of it?
This pic was so cute! This is my study face! study, study, study...
I love pancakes! This is just too cute for words!
(images weheartit, I always forget to say that lol)

I hope everyone has an awesome day, I think it's thursday.....

I Solemnly Swear...

This is kinda how I feel's been a strange day full of strange surprises you would only see on some angsty teen WB show...
I believe this fully...
If I could I would probably do my hair like this now...If I wasn't trying to become a teacher, they kinda frown on being cool.
This is the first compass rose tattoo that I've seen, I like it....
I also feel like this today! I finished the last assignment for my course finally! Now I just have to study for tests and put up my laundry! I'm off tomorrow, and I solemnly swear to get stuff done!

Vacation Dreams

This past week I have been super sick! Booo! But I had lots to do so I didn't let being sick stop me. I have been observing classes for 5 hours in the morning, then going to work until close. I have one more tiny assignment due then its study, study, study!

I can't decide if I want to make muffins or eggs n stuff for breakfast? hmmmm....

The puppies got haircuts and they looks so cute, and they are sooo soft! I'll have to post pics soon!

The last time I went grocery shopping I remembered that I wanted to try Nutella...they were out! So I still haven't tried it!

I've decided I want to go on a fun vacation, to like Disney World/Land or whatever...I'm sure it would be fun....I'll start dreaming....

Where are you going for vacation this summer?

Sleep To Dream

I had a dream I started collecting xylophones, bells, marimbas, you name it. I used to play those back in the high school band days. Fiona Apple was in my dream, she told me I needed to pick it up again. It was a strange dream in a white room, with real grass carpets and strawberries growing out of the walls. But the message was clear...glockenspiel....

My Weekend in Photos

This weekend I got to see my niece Avery Grace. We had lots of fun, but mostly she drooled and stuck her hand in her mouth lol.

This is my sister Ashley, we were having some dinner...

This is my Friday at BWW (Buffalo Wild Wings), where the Thrift Store Cowboys played a secret show. PS the best way to run frat daddy's out of BWW is TSC music. The place cleared out really quick, which just made it more fun. lol

This old couple danced the night away, I think they were pretty drunk. lol

Corey in real life.
Coco workin it
Me being nerdy
The husband being cute

PS I fixed my hair and was super excited! It's late and I have to be up early to go observe at a high school, then go to was your weekend...

Rolling With The Homies

Today I had to get up early on my day off for a meeting at work, which was probably good since I've been getting things done! I am almost finished with this multicultural assignment I've been working on...WOOT! Clint tried painting, but hated the way the Ralph Lauren paint I had bought went onto the wall. So he got so frustrated that he needed ice cream, so we headed up the street to Cold Stone.

I just realized the Renegade Craft Fair is this weekend and I am off! I want to go, but I don't want to go alone, and well I suck at driving and booking hotels yeah

This is my new diet lol j/k, but sometimes it is b/c I am broke.

This looks like some puppies i know!
I saw this on Sherri DuPree's twitter (she's in the band Eisley)...I have to try them! lol

This is one of Hello Kitty's friends...tooo cute!

What are you up to this Monday?
Are you going to the Renegade Craft Fair? Can you fit me in your suitcase? lol
