Confession: I have made my cat yodel

Monday, October 4, 2010

I wanna be a billionaire ...

so frickin bad! Haha, actually I'd be happy just being a millionaire honestly.

I bought my first powerball ticket ... ever. I kept having dreams about winning the lottery and instead of continuous putting it off, I decided to take a chance and play. Even though the numbers will not be announced until Wednesday, I am super excited and can't wait to see if I have won.

If I won, there is so many things I would want to do. I would pay off my student debt, pay off my car, go on an extravagant vacation, buy new gadgets, and probably by season tickets to University of Oklahoma football games. But first and foremost, I'd march over to a contractor and plan to build a house.

I don't think I'd go extravagant and become one of those "rich snobs." Instead, I don't see myself changing much other than a load of stress would be taken off my mind. I'd still work (probably part-time) and I'd still finish my master's. I know I would become more active in the community and spend more time with my family.

So here's hoping that I have the winning numbers!

What would you do if you won a million dollars?

The Recession is Over?

Not long ago I read a story about the National Bureau of Economic Research saying the recession has been over for year. Not only did I think this was interesting, I also wondered how they came up with this conclusion. Month-after-month people are getting laid-off and retail sales keep decline. People are afraid to spend money, and jobs are nonexistent.

Well today I found a funny article that said how you would be able to tell when the recession is over:

1. When your boss actually replaces an employee who retires or quits instead of adding their workload to yours.
2. When your laid-off friends start getting jobs with benefits.

3. When you don't have to live with your parents anymore.

4. When it becomes financially feasible to get a divorce again.

5. When a vacation involves airplane travel and you sleep in a hotel bed, not your sister-in-law's house.

6. When Starbucks isn't full on a weekday afternoon.

7. When you no longer have a relationship with coupons.

8. When you can list your house for sale and reasonably expect it to sell within three months at a price higher than what you paid for it.

9. When trying to get a bargain becomes a sport instead of a necessity.

10. When you can afford a new car, your 401k has been restored, you've reset your emergency fund with 6 months of living expenses and the term "99ers" is erased from your memory.

Life according to Carrie Bradshaw

I can admit it, I am a Sex and the City addict. I love the show, own every season, and even watch the reruns on TBS. Yep, that's me. I love the whole cast for different reasons and could only imagine a lifestyle like theirs.

Growing up, I always wanted to go to New York. When I finally was given the opportunity to go in college I took it without a second thought. As soon as I got off the plane, I fell in love. The stores, the people, the lights, the museums all had their hands on me and it was so hard to get back on the plane.

I've been back since that very first trip, but I have yet to pick-up my bags and move. Maybe we could chalk it up to being scared of leaving the familiar, but honestly I think it is because of the sky high prices and the suffering job market. Maybe one day I'll just pack up my bags and live the life of a New York City lady, but until then I live vicariously through Carrie and her crew.

One thing I love about Carrie is her dedication to those she loves. I would love to be one of her best friends. Here are some of her rules that all of us should incorporate into our lives:

Rule #1: Why is it that the one time a cute guy talks to you, you have a friend in crisis?

Rule #2: Humiliated best friend always takes precedence over cute guy.

Rule #3: Best friends always think you deserve the best guy even if the best guy barely knows you exist.

Rule #4: Best friends can always be full of surprises.

There you have it, a few rules from the "it" girl Carrie Bradshaw.

Today is one of those days that I should have just stayed home in bed and relaxed. The last few weeks and weekends have kept me insanely busy. Who knew that working full-time, selling Scentsy, and going to school for my Master's would leave me with such little relaxation time? Haha. So yeah, I had a full weekend of Scentsy, traveling, and school work and have found myself extremely exhausted today.

Since my brain is just barely functioning and I am having a "bad day" I thought I would share  a story because about a bad day. This e-mail was sent to me today and made me laugh when I needed it.

A really bad day

There I was sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig.

"Well, whatcha gonna do about it?" he says, menacingly, as I burst into tears.

"Come on, man," the biker says, "I didn't think you'd CRY. I can`t stand to see a man crying."

"This is the worst day of my life," I say. "I'm a complete failure. I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me. When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had been stolen and I don't have any insurance. I left my wallet in the cab I took home. I found my old lady in bed with the gardener, and then my dog bit me."

"So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all, I buy a drink, I drop a capsule in and sit here watching the poison dissolve. Then you, you jack-ass, show up and drink the whole thing! But enough about me, how's your day going?"

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my

Over the weekend I had an experience like no other! I played with a baby tiger! How cool is that? I have always wanted to pet a tiger and have loved the animal for as long as I can remember. Anyways, there is this park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma called GW Exotic Animal Park and they save exotic animals from people who get them thinking they can handle them. Its a really cool place with a lot of different animals (mostly tigers). You get a lot closer to animals then you do at the zoo. If you ever venture to Oklahoma, you should definitely check it out. Here are a few pics from my phone ... more to come.

Getting to know me Monday

{one} what’s your favorite day of the week and why?

Saturday's because it is the first day of the week that I can sit back and relax or go find something fun to get into.

{two} if you could have a glimpse of your future, would you choose to see it and what time would you want to see?

A year ago I would have said yes, but today no. I don't want to see a glimpse of the future because if I see something bad I'll stress out about it. I prefer to live life full of suprises.
{three} if you could be any animal, which animal would you be?

I would love to be a tiger... beautiful and powerful.
{four} do you have a lucky number?

Nope, but I like the number 3!

{five} if you could bring one famous person back from the dead, who would it be and why?

Marilyn Monroe... I love her and would be excited to have the chance to meet her.

{six} fill in the blank: peanut butter and ____________.

{seven} would you rather live by the mountains or by the beach?

Can't I have both? Honestly, I think I'd love to live by the beach unless it was in the mountains of Arizona or California.

{eight} do you have any tattoos?

Yes, I have three tattoos. I plan on getting one more in memory of my mother.
{nine} if you could retire tomorrow, what would you do?

If I could retire and not be poor, I'd travel the world. I'd go everywhere and see new things. I hope to be able to do that one day.

{ten} what is your favorite all time movie?

This is soooooo hard because I have soooooo many. My list includes: Pretty Woman, Sean of the Dead, Zombieland, Monster's Inc., The Princess Bride, Dirty Dancing, and Top Gun. OMG there are so many and that doesn't name the half of them!

It's 90210!

So you know what that means? It's time to pull out the technicolor tee's, the teased hair, neon colored sunglasses, and the acid washed jeans. Yes folks, it's a blast from the past!

In honor of Brandon, Brenda, Kelly, Steve, Dylan, Donna, Andrea, and David, lets talk about the fashion of the 90s!

  • Acid wash jeans: They were high-waisted and worn slightly baggy. Your shirts had to be tucked in and a belt showing. A matching denim jacket a la Brandon Walsh style, a must for guys, folded hems for the girls.
  • Baggy t-shirts: You had to tuck them in to your acid wash jeans.
  • Converse and Reebok trainers: For all those times you're running late to class. Now, Reebok is making a comeback with its toning shoes.
  • Patterned waistcoats: Worn under your baggy t-shirts or sometimes on their own.
  • Chinos: It was preppy all the way at Beverly Hills High!
  • Floral: Back in the early nineties floral dresses were all the rage, usually with spaghetti straps Kelly Taylor style.
  • Scrunchies: I used to love these! I'd have 3 or 4 in my hair at a time. I do wonder if they are going to make a return.
  • Hair gel: I mean the serious hold stuff. You know the kind in bottle that is pink, blue, or green. What was the point of all the colors?

Tonight I'll be watching some reruns of one of my most favorite shows of the 90s. But here is a clip to remind you of how great this show was!

Smile empty soul

"A smile is the universal communication between two people."

While running errands today, I noticed one thing in common at most stores ... grumpy people. It's almost Friday and it was a beautiful day outside but all these people were running around with their sad/grumpy face on instead of being happy. Maybe they had reasons to be under the weather or maybe they just constantly walk around in a state of disarray.

Well I was walking on clouds most of the day and smiled a few extremely grumpy looking patrons. To my surprise, they smiled back!

It is nice to see the power of a smile. I can remember time and again when I have been in a bad mood and a complete stranger graced me with a smile. Even if it didn't change my mood, it made me feel good at least for a few minutes.

So if you get the chance, smile at some of those grumpy people out there. It is well worth it!

Apple Angers Me

It's official... I am very irritated with Apple. My computer is still not fixed and I took it in on Saturday. There was supposed to be a 3-5 day turnover rate, and here we are on day 6 and still nothing.

I called today to get an update, and the man who answered the phone was a complete jerk. He basically told me it would be fixed when they called me. I'll be calling back tomorrow as well, because this is ridiculous.

No, I'm not some Internet addict that is going through withdrawals. Instead, I'm a college student that really really really needs her computer. I had a huge paper due on Monday, and had to borrow someone else's computer through the weekend just to get by. It really makes it hard to get homework done when you have no means to do so.

Anyways, I'm ending my venting. Sorry! I just needed to get a few things off my chest. I should probably get back to work right now, seeing as how I am using "company time for once."

Happy Thursday!

Kids say the darndest things

I have often heard that every girl should have a gay best friend. Well, I've had one for the longest time and while he is totally fun and amazing he has never once told me I look terrible in an outfit, my butt is too big, or that I'm getting fat. Maybe I picked the wrong guy to befriend, but at the same time he's always boosting my ego. I mean, who doesn't like an ego boost?

But after this weekend, I have decided that I don't need a gay best friend to tell me about my appearance. Instead I need a child (no I am not going to have one, just borrow one).

This weekend was tax free shopping weekend in Oklahoma. Parents and people where coming out from under the woodwork trying to buy clothes and not pay taxes. Granted it is only a little over 8%, but there are always a ton of sales that weekend also. I won't lie, I was one of those idiots buying school clothes for my siblings. I love them, and wanted to take advantage of the super deals. I spent $165 and saved $229. Can't beat that!

Anyways, back to the story. Well as I was walking in one of the stores I couldn't help but over hear this woman and her daughter. The woman was looking at some clothes and the daughter all of a sudden blurted out, "Look mom they sell leggings for fat people."

Sure children may not be able to match their own clothes, tie their own shoes, or even fix their own hair... but they will sure let you know when you look funny, get fat, or are even remotely different from what they are used to.

Something is in the water...

So instead of tap I am now only consuming bottled water. No, I am not trying to bring the world down one plastic bottle at a time (I do recycle), but instead I am trying to apparently avoid the baby disease. Don't get me wrong, I want a baby someday but today, tomorrow, next week is not that day.

Right now if you look around my office there are preggo's everywhere. You look at my Facebook page and there is always some announcement that someone is having a baby. Yes, I am happy for all these new ecstatic mother's but it's getting a little old. I mean did they decide that they were all going to get together and plot the next baby boom? We are still at war, wait until all the soldiers come home please. I guess everyone got spring fever if you know what I mean.

But like I said, I am now consuming only bottled products because there is obviously an outbreak going on. Congrats to all of the soon-to-be mother's out there though.

If bloggers wrote single's ads

I mean single followers friendship ads, yes friendship ads, I think it would go something like this:

20 something blogger seeking followers friends

Hello, I'm a 20 something blogger that is new to the blogging world. I'm not exactly sure what I am getting myself into, but I thought I would give it a shot. I have been blogging for two months and seek more friends in the blogosphere.

About my blog: I write mostly about the world I am surrounded in. Sometimes I talk about my day, other times I report on my awesome people watching skills, oh and I also blog about crazy events that happen across the world. I have a weekly feature on Wednesday's called Wordless Wednesday. Maybe you've heard of them? Basically I post a video or photo that often makes people laugh. Oh did I mention I also like comments? I love it when people leave me feedback. That's a great way to put a smile on my face.

Who am I looking for: I am looking for new friends that love to read and write comments on my blog. I don't want to sound narcissistic, but I think my blog deserves a lot of love, so I am looking for those who have a lot of love to give. I also would like someone that can write awesome posts for me to read and reply back to. I don't want boring people that don't stimulate me intellectually. While I don't require a person to blog on a daily basis, I'd really like them to post more than once every 3 months. I'd also like them to visit my blog somewhat regularly. Oh did I mention I like comments?

Old Lady Candy

Have you ever noticed that candy has certain stereotypes? I mean there are the nerds, candy ropes, and suckers that are generally associated with the children. The chocolate bars, reese cups, m&ms, and well anything with chocolate are always connected to women (especially during PMS). There is also the candy that is for the health enthusiast that generally includes Slim Fast bars, Weight Watchers candy, extremely dark chocolate, and energy bars.

And then there is the dreaded Old Lady Candy. You know, the candy that grandma always had in a dish. The candy you forced yourself to eat because it made grandma happy to give you some. Yes, there is definitely a stereotype with this candy.

Old lady candy usually consists of peanut patties, orange slices, ribbon hard candy, the disgusting flavors of salt water taffy (like licorice), random hard candies in a clear or colored wrapper with no name, and of course the sugar coated fruit drops.

I remember growing up and my grandma always had a dish of this random candy. It was always out, and it never got wrapped up or put away. Apparently candy had some sort of germ deterrent (kind of like soap). It never went bad, and the worse thing that happened to it was that it got hard if it was chewy.

She would always tell me there was candy in the bowl if I wanted something sweet. Even as a kid I tried to avoid this dish of old lady goodness. Unfortunately my avoidance never prevailed and I was forced in indulge in the old lady candy just to make my grandma happy.

The other day I was caught by surprise when I walked into my office. I got off the elevator and there it was... a bowl of old lady candy. This one had the random hard candies with no name. I couldn't help but laugh growing up and my grandma trying to convince me that these candies were delicious. Unfortunately, since we are all starving journalists the old lady candy doesn't stick around for very long, but nothing free ever does.

Man, what can't they just feed us m&ms?

Inside Out

Today was one of those days ...

I heard my alarm go off, I hit snooze. I heard it go off again and I hit snooze. And after hitting snooze not once, not twice, but six (yes six) times and I instantly realized I woke up an hour late. Great.

No, I wasn't late to work ... well not that late but I totally skipped out on my gym time and dog walking time. So in this panic rush, I was running around finding clothes. Of course, everything I planned to dry before work was in the dryer. I had a long debate about if I throw them in now, will they be dry enough to wear in 30 minutes? I'm sure you've had those days where you put on the slightly wet clothes because you have no time for them to get completely dry.

Well, I threw the clothes in the dryer and jumped in the shower. No I didn't slip and fall. :) I threw on my clothes and prepared to run out the door. Unfortunately my dog had a different idea. She bolted! Took off running and here I had to go running in flip flops in 96 degree weather to chase her down. I finally got her, and let's just say I wasn't nice.

I got to work about 10 minutes late. Not too bad since I usually have to stay late anyways. Well being at work for about an hour I went to the bathroom and realized I put my panties on inside out. Yep, I was in such a hurry I didn't even notice. Instead of taking my pants off in the dirty public bathroom I just dealt with it, but never felt the same after that.

What crazy things have you done when you had to rush somewhere?

Gym Etiquette 101

There is something to be said about gym etiquette. I mean I haven't been to the gym in awhile, and upon walking in there today I instantly remembered things I hated. Don't get me wrong ... I love going to work out, but sometimes the people there drive me crazy! In light of this, I have made my own rules for gym etiquette.

  1. Put on deodorant, lots of it if you need to! People do not like the smell of body odor.
  2. Also, if you decide to wear perfume, don't marinate in it.
  3. Please clean the machines when you are done... there is something really gross about having my hands on your sweat!
  4. Just because sports bra's come in all sizes, doesn't mean you shouldn't wear a shirt over it.
  5. Turn the music down. I don't need to know which gangsta rap song you are listening to.
  6. Don't sing out loud.
  7. Don't make your friends do the same workout as you so you can chit-chat. If you can still talk without heavy breathing then you are wasting your time.
  8. Don't stare at people ... it's creepy.
  9. The gym is not a beauty contest. You don't need to come in with perfect hair and perfect make-up. If you leave that way, you wasted your time.
  10. Stop the outrageous grunts. It's not attractive and in fact it's annoying.
  11. Put your weights back. Also, put them back in the correct spot. There is nothing worse than falling flat on your face because you tripped over a weight.
  12. A towel or water bottle is not a reserve sign. Sorry, but you can't go talk to your friend for 15 minutes and expect your machine to still be empty.

Pink vagina couch?

Sometimes you want a lazy boy, sometimes you want a rocking chair, and other times you want a pink upholstered vagina couch.

Yes my friends, you read that right! Craigslist is offering one lucky man person the couch of his their dreams!!

"For Sale - beautiful pink "vagina couch" that I made in art school and no longer have space for. The couch is large: measures 5' 3" long, 3' 3" wide at the middle, and stands 2' 3" tall (and is heavy like a couch). The pics are from my portfolio and are several years old; as a result, the couch has some scuffmarks and stains around the bottom from being moved, but otherwise is in excellent shape. A professional upholsterer helped me build the couch, so it is also functional and durable as a piece of furniture. The couch must be picked up in
Mendocino, a 3-hour drive north of SF. I am asking for $600 and a loving home! Call Willow at [deleted] or reply to posting.

Feel free to share the ad with others!

Weekend Getaway

Sometimes you just need a getaway.

As life continues to lay on the stress and work gets more insane, my boytoy and I decided we needed to take a weekend off and just relax. So we went to a local lake to enjoy some fun in the sun.

Between basking in the sun, swimming in some gorgeous water, and doing some fishing we were able to truly enjoy nature. Sure it was insanely hot and I came home looking like a lobster, but it was well worth it! I had an amazing time.

I am a total lake junkie during the summer. If I could spend every weekend in the sun I would. Unfortunately I still will not get tan, but that is OK. My little sister often tells me I need to "embrace the whiteness." haha. I guess I got the "you're always going to be seriously white with no tan in sight" genes. Oh well, porcelain is beautiful right?

Hope you all took advantage of the summer sun this weekend!

It May Break My Back ...

But at least it looks good.

When I was growing up I would look at my grandma and think, man she has a huge purse! Then when she would ask me to bring it to her from across the room a shear streak of panic would run across my mind. I was going to have to pick up this massive bag and drag it all the way across the room. At first I would try to hoist on my shoulder, that didn't work, then I would just drag it across the floor. She'd get a little irritated that I didn't carry it, but we all know grandma's don't stay irritated long.

Once I'd make it across the living room floor (which seemed like it was miles long while dragging this purse) I'd ask her, "Grandma, what's in this thing?" She'd simply reply, "everything." And to this day, I believe it is true. Grandma always had everything you needed, no matter if it was a piece of candy to get you through church, crayons for a road trip, tissue for that runny nose, or even a bandaid if you fell and scraped your knee. It's crazy how much stuff she could get in one purse. It seriously was like a clown car, just when you thought it was empty there was something else.

So what is the point of all this? Well for my birthday I got the biggest handbag I have ever carried in my life and I LOVE it. I know my grandma would be proud if she saw how big this handbag is. Granted it isn't huge, but it is big. Now I find myself putting stuff in my purse that I never carried when my purse was smaller. I'm not sure if it is because I have more room, or if my mentality shifted to "grandma had it all mode."

I mean looking through my purse I have: two pairs of glasses (sun and regular), a wallet, coin purse, calendar, small make-up bag, lotion, Scentsy catalogs, car insurance, wisp toothbrushes, keys, 2 packs of gum, bandaids, sanitizer, kleenex, and probably other things that I never get to at the bottom of my purse. While I may not be as prepared as grandma, I think I am off to a good start.

I've also began to notice that my purse has gotten a lot heavier. Sometimes I wonder what kind of damage it is doing to my already messed up back. On top of all that, my handbag is also my boyfriends storage container. I can't tell you how many times he has asked me to hold his wallet, hold the camera, or carry something else random.

Does having a bigger purse make you carry more?

Life is a roller coaster

More and more I have noticed that life is a roller coaster. Sometimes it goes up, sometimes it goes down, sometimes it throws you through a loop, and other times it just feels like it goes in reverse. I've been kind of missing the last two weeks, yes I know it is terrible since I just started this blog but sometimes life just gets in the way.

July 4th was my birthday so I went out of town and headed to the lake. It was a total blast. I honestly think there isn't much better that relaxing on a boat on a beautiful lake with a beer in my hand. It was a much needed get-a-way.

Unfortunatly, my last day at the lake I realized I was getting sick. Yay! The drive home was not fun, and the following week wasn't either. My allergies got way out of control and were apparently starting a war with my immune system. So I spent the week trying to drag myself out of bed and surviving work. That is about all I did the whole time, and blogging was a top priority unfortunately haha.

Now it is Monday, and even though I still am not 100% back to normal, I am glad to be back in the blogging world! Cheers to a good and healthy week!

It's pouring down rain ...

... and I'm sitting here watching the weather.

Why? Because I had to make sure that nothing crazy was going to show up. I'm from Oklahoma and unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard about the insane weather here. In the last 6 months we had a blizzard, a tornado outbreak, a huge hail storm, record high heat, and flooding.

No, I haven't gotten all paranoid now that the weather has officially gone bipolar. In fact, I am just concerned because I am in a rental car right now and have no desire to pay for another deductible, especially on a car that isn't mine. My car is in the shop getting poked and handled with large tools. The poor thing got attacked by mother nature's hail storm and unfortunately mother nature won.

Luckily it looks like it is just a big rain storm, hopefully not too rainy. I don't have a boat or a jet ski and I honestly don't feel like swimming at 2 a.m. I guess I will get back to bed, hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.

Who Am I? Who are you?

I am new to the blogging world and honestly can't wait. I am a 20 something that is currently working full-time as a graphic designer, a full-time Scentsy Consultant, and I am also working on my Masters in Business Administration with an emphasis in Human Relations. So as you can imagine, I am a busy girl.

I'm pretty random, so prepare for a crazy ride. I've recently become a four eyes, and even though it has been a few months it is still hard to get used to. I've never been sky-diving and even though people say it is a rush, I find that hard to believe. Something about falling out of plane has no appeal to me. I like to get my rushes from outdoorsy, indoorsy, safe stuff.

I have an amazing boyfriend that I am truly thankful for. He has been a blessing to me and does a great job of dealing with my crazy and stressful moments. Sometimes all I need is that pat and him telling me "it will be OK," and other times he has to send me to my room and take away my video game priviledges. Just kidding, he is the best and keeps me grounded. I don't know what I'd do without him.

I also have two mutt "kids." I have a "mutt" cat named Penelope and she is the boss. I also have a "mutt" dog named Daisy and she's just the goofy ditz stomping through the house like it's her playground.

I'm a bit of an insomniac. Just last weekend I was up for over 36 hours sleep. I sleep with the T.V. on because I have this idea that if someone breaks in they will hear the T.V. and runaway. OK, so that is not true ... I just need something to help clear the 9,000 things going through my head.

My favorite food is mexican, I could eat it every day. Even though I love it, I HATE beans and will send anything back that has some sort of bean on it.
