Oh and go check out her shop! It is the cutest!

Me Time Monday

Monday's are the worst. I am usually really busy and almost never have time to even look at my computer. Today though I woke up an hour earlier so I could do some reading that was just for me. I am a total and complete book worm. I can't get enough outta books.

Thank goodness today is a holiday or I would not have the time to do this. Usually my Mondays consist of me waking up, grabbing a quick breakfast [sometimes it's just coffee] and running out the door. I am in class from 10am to 3pm Monday through Thursday. Except on Mondays I have a two hour break before I head out the door again to Monday Night Live with all my Mary Kay girls. That usually lasts from 5:30-9:30pm, then I come home and have dinner with my hubby. Sometimes we rush out the door for an impromptu date night. Just a quick dinner nothing to special except some time spent with each other.

Today though, I am spending it reading. Catching up on books that I have put aside for text books. I may even do a little bit of painting as I have found that I really need to let my creative side back out again. I miss having paint on my hands, or pencil ground into my finger tips. The smell of the paint or of a freshly sharpened pencil. There is nothing better in life.

Happy Memorial Day to everyone out there by the way. Take a moment to remember our fallen soldiers or hug a soldier in your life and thank them for putting there lives on the line for our freedom.

Grab a button...or two...

Shit I hate Sunday

Linking up with The Rockin' Mama for Shit I hate Sunday. Check it out:

Shit I Hate...people who take up three parking spots just cause they don't want someone to park next to them. News flash they still do and you just look like an ass!

Shit I hate...when the dishes pile up. Yes we have a dishwasher but they never seem to make it that far.

Shit I Hate...folding laundry! I would rather do the dishes, ha!

Shit I Hate...when someone tries to tell me how to live my life. Hello, I am living my life, I think I know what is best for me. Clean up your own back yard before you clean up mine.

Shit I Hate...skinny chicks thinking they are fat. Really? Hello, have you looked in a mirror lately? Go eat something besides a salad.

Shit I Hate...feeling helpless. Especially when someone I love is hurting and there is nothing I can do to fix it.

Blue Party

Tonight at the Out N' About was the Blue Party. Terrel and I had so much fun. It was really good to get out of the house and laugh and see friends I have not seen in a while. Here are the pics from tonight:

Thanks guys for making this girl laugh till her face hurt! I had such a blast tonight. It was seriously just what I needed after the month I have had.

Curious to Know...

If I did a vlog would anyone be interested? If so what would I talk about. I am thinking a get to know me kind of vlog. So this is where I ask you to leave me a comment with a question you would like me to answer and I will do my best to answer it. Hopefully without very many "ums" between sentences and words, because apparently I do a lot of that.

So here is your shot, ask me anything. I'll write down your questions and answer them in a vlog.

Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} what’s the worst date you’ve ever been on?
I never really had a bad date. Just bad boyfriends, lol. But now I am married so it makes up for all of the bad guys =)

{two} if you could be any other person for one day, who would it be?
That's a tough one. I think I would want to be Jinx the pixie from Kim Harrison's book series with Rachel Morgan the bounty hunting witch. For a fictional pixie, he is pretty cool.

{three} what is your favorite kind of cheese?
I am not a big cheese eater. I guess pepper jack?

{four} do you remember your 1st grade teacher?
Yes! His name was Mr. Yollow, he was the coolest teacher ever, lol

{five} who is the first person you call when you have a bad day?
My husband, and if I can reach him because of work I call my NeNe =]

{six} were you ever in a school talent show?
Nope never had the guts to get out there on the stage.

{seven} who is your favorite fictional character?
Anita Blake

{eight} can you open your eyes underwater?
Sure can =]

{nine} do you look at the keyboard when you type?
Right at first so I know they are on the right spot, then only if I don't know how to spell something. Weird I know.

{ten} when was the last time you took a nap?
A few weeks ago, I had a sinus infection and was really tired. Since I didn't have anything going on I took the opportunity to indulge myself with a nap.

I love my job!!!!
How many of you can say that? 
Tonight when I went to my job I was crowned "Queen of Sales". It was so much fun. Can I just say that I love Monday Night Live? Yes, okay then ---> I LOVE MONDAY NIGHT LIVE!

What is my job?
Well as most of you know I do Photography and it is my job, but did you know that I also sell Mary Kay? Yup. I am an Independent Beauty Consultant. I have only been selling it for a little over a month now but I have noticed that I have a lot more self confidence than I used to. I feel better about myself. I get complimented all the time on how pretty I look, and when I have a particularly good night I get applauded for it. How many people can say that they get applauded for doing something at work? I know I can. It is honestly an amazing feeling. 

I have been having a blast meeting so many awesome women. I never thought that I could be a Mary Kay Representative  but I am. My personal choice to sell Mary Kay was because I am super busy and between school and photography I needed something that would still allow me the flexibility to earn an income without the 9 to 5 restrictions. Mary Kay does that for me. Some of the directors that run Monday Night Live have earned free cars and pay their house payment from what they earn. I see them and think I can do that. I know I can. My first goal is to earn that car. I could really use it right about now. What I really want to do is surprise my hubby and earn enough each month to take over the house payment. How cool is that?

Anyways, I was just super excited so I thought I would share it with you all.

First Post.

Hey guys! I am back! I have been working on my blog for the last two weeks. It is still under construction, I have a few things that I am going to be adding here once I finish them. Unfortunately school is kicking my butt, with less than a month away from finals. So between school, homework, photography and Mary Kay I have been one busy lady. 

Some things that I brought over from the old blog are the 100 List and Our Fairy Tale. My About Us section is new and updated. Although I will be adding pictures of the hubby and our cute fury and scaly babies real soon.

Honestly, I really wanted to wait till I had all the kinks worked out before I started posting again, but I really can't help it. I love blogging and I love being able to share my life with you guys. Not just that but it is my outlet and not being able to write for two weeks was killing me! There is a lot I want to share but because I am trying to make this blog more zen and not as toxic as my other blog had become I will not share. Instead you can read my good bye on the other blog...as vague as it may be.

Some new things in the works. Well I am now a Mary Kay consultant, which I am loving! My debut is this Friday [hopefully I will be able to snag some pictures]. I am also going to be concentrating on who I am as a whole. I am going to embrace my inner Goddess and Photographer/Artist more ofter on here. 

Yes I am a Pagan High Priestess, I run a grove here in the Tri-Cities. I have been practicing for a little over 11 years now. I have been running my grove for almost 4 years. I am a Capricorn and was born in the year of the Ox. I am completely bullheaded and stubborn when I want to be, just ask my husband.

So there you have it my first post on my new blog. Want to know more about me go to my About Us page and read up or contact me through my email.
