See Ya March…

Phew, is it just me or did March FLY by? However, I can’t say I’m sad to see it go. The month and certain dates hold a lot of memories for me, so it’ll be nice to not be in a random bad mood cause of a date. (Disclosure; that’s not to say I’m in a good mood every other month of the year..) Anywho, today’s Easter, so I’m spending it with my mom’s side for a low-key late lunch. Easter’s never been a big holiday for my family, so it’s nice to not have to run around like a crazy trying to see everyone. I’ve made these ‘Cookie Dough Bars’ that I found on pinterest (here’s the recipe) with baby bestie last night during our girls night.

I hope they taste as good as they look! I saw the idea to do a chevron pattern on them here

Since the month kind of got away from me, I was looking through my drafts and realized I missed posting some really great things ( like ‘Mid Month Favorites’ and ‘Ides of March?’) so look for the ‘Mid Month Favorites’ post in April and for some other fun posts I’ve been working on. Thanks for joining me for another month, here’s to a better April! Xo

Barbie was a staple in my house. (Okay, she still is.) She legit has it all…cars, shoes, clothes, houses, careers, boyfriends…Bitch has everything.

Who remembers Pogs?!? Omg, I loved collecting these little things. I was never 100% sure how to “play” pogs, but I just wanted to collect all the rad ones. And I had a heavy gold slammer that was out of this world cool.

I went to babytooth’s a couple of weeks ago and her brother (also my cousin) has been cleaning out their families basement to make a workshop space for himself. He took me down there to show me how it was coming along, but all I cared about was seeing if he kept any of our old playtoys. And sure enough, he kept all our favorites! I absolutely loved the Fisher Price Checkout Register! That thing was (and still is) one of my fave childhood toys. It kept us busy for hours.

I know last week I talked about what tv I was digging back in the day, but can we just talk about how awesome the game shows were?! Double Dare, Supermarket Sweep, Shop Til You Drop, Legends Of The Hidden Temple, Finders Keepers were all must sees in my house. Like why isn’t there anything like this now-a-days?! I’m talking a get your hands dirty, right there in it, type of game show. Or at least show us re-runs of the good ones! Until the next time I wanna take a trip down memory lane! Xo

Friday Fun! 10 things you didn’t know about me..

  1. I got my driver’s license at the age of 26.
  2. I drink coffee through a straw. Hot or cold, doesn’t matter.
  3. Malibu and Cranberry is my cocktail of choice. Or champagne.
  4. I think about the “meaning” of life way to much. And often never have a real answer to what I believe.
  5. I like animals more than most people.
  6. In high school, I snuck out of the house a lot, always through the front door. Only got caught once.
  7. I don’t have any tattoos, but know exactly what and where I would get one whenever I decide to pull the trigger.
  8. I’m really afraid of needles hence why #7 hasn’t happened yet.
  9. Navy blue is my favorite color.

A Book In Review.

I just finished ‘Kidnapped The Wrong Sister’ by Marie Kelly. I got this book on my free book rampage on bn.com and it was okay. The story was good, I just wasn’t blown away by it. The story is a case of mistaken identity (“Wow, K…really, we couldn’t tell from the title!”) and then the two become fast lovers and trouble ensues from there. It was a typical romance-y type book. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either. For being free, it wasn’t bad. *Side note; I am really starting to hate happy endings in books. Like life doesn’t always end that way (rarely does), but all these damn books gotta be so happy happy. Womp womp womp, stupid. (I’m writing this in a semi-bad mood..) I think this is the first time I’ve given out spoilers, so if you took the time to read this, I’m sorry. Next up, is ‘Murder On The Mind’ by L.L. Bartlett. Here’s hoping it blows my socks off (and as I write this I’m in flats and not wearing socks. Whoops..) Xo.

a day in the life.

Yesterday afternoon, my Dad and I headed to the movies. He actually hasn’t been to the movies in years, so this was a pretty big deal for him. I let him pick and he chose ‘Olympus Has Fallen’. We went to a matinee, got some snacks and headed into the theater..

We were the only ones! And then 3 other people came in right as the previews started. I’ve decided no one goes to the movies during the day and it’s now my fave time to go. The movie was really, really good. It had a great story line and the action was second to none. I highly recommend it! After the movie, we headed to the butcher to get some meat for the week. (Our local butcher has some killer deals, I suggest you go take a peek at your local butcher shop and see if you can get your meats cheaper, you may be surprised at the prices..we were!)

Earlier in the day, I painted my nails ‘Too Too Hot’ by Essie, which was picked by baby bestie via text. The color makes me crave warmer weather and think of the beach, here’s hoping the weather follows in the footsteps of my mani/pedi color! Laters, Xo
