My Selfie Phobia

Woop! End of the week is here with a weekend full of fun & football ahead. (GO ERIC DECKER!! Broncos!) I think I deserve it after the traumatizing Wednesday that I had. If anyone follows me on Twitter, you probably saw the really beautiful photo of me drinking wine with foils in my hair while under a blow dryer. This was at 7 PM, when I was still happy. At 8:15, all hell broke loose because the 3 inches I thought were getting cut off my hair turned into something more like 20 7. I was really brave acting when it happened.. mostly because I didn't want to cause a scene at the hair salon but when I came walking into our apartment a hysterical sobbing mess, I was poor PDiddy's problem then.
You know it's bad when you can't even eat your chicken nuggets Happy Meal. (Has anyone noticed that the toys are getting less and less cool? Paul Frank stickers? Come on.)
When I got to work yesterday I felt a little better because no one mentioned anything.. I was like okay, I was just being overly dramatic like usual. Then a girl at lunch told me that she loved my new bob. Thursday ruined. Cue margarita.
All of my friends my mom of course wanted to see pics so I took some awkward selfies for her yesterday once I had calmed a little.


I HATE selfies. I don't mind if chicks want to post duck face selfies of themselves all over social media.. go for it. As long as you aren't posting them 11,000 times a day from your bathroom, we can still be FB friends. But when I do it, something strange happens and I can't help but make an ugly face or do something weird. I just get all nervous and discombobulated and don't know what to do. I usually try and grab Remi because if your dog is in the picture, it's not truly a selfie. I mean, she could be taking the photo.. you don't know her life. If Remi isn't around, I'll just grab the glass of wine that's usually sitting in front of me and drink that.
But today I thought I'd attempt a real one. Mostly because Remi isn't here and I don't have a glass of wine readily available. Sigh.

I'm actually in a pretty legit mood today just incase you couldn't tell from all the bitchiness you just read. It's Friday.. not even having a bob can get me down. Any suggestions on the best brand of extensions are welcomed though.

Happy weekend lovers!

Monday Rambles

I have been sucking at blog life the last few days but only because I've been non-suckish at real life. This rarely happens. The fact that the box of Franzia in my fridge has been super lonely the past 2 weeks is also a rarity. Kind of super proud of myself though. Also super proud of my little coffee cup this morning:

It looks like a beer but it's just a coffee. Tricky Tricky.

Because even when I'm not drinking, I like to pretend to.. which makes me happy. It's the little things in life people.

This weekend was terrible weather wise. We got something insane like 11,000 24 inches of snow all while being negative 700 10 degrees out. I left the house yesterday for the first time all weekend fully intending to go pick up food for dinner, cleaned my car off for 20 minutes then walked my happy ass back inside to order a pizza. Winter is just not my thang. Pizza delivery is though.

And since I did nothing but watch Netflix all weekend, I have little to absolutely nothing to tell you about except that my dog is officially my height.. which is pretty easy to do.. except she's a dog.. so I'm impressed.

Is it April yet?!

Thinking About..

Sick of my ombre. This may be happening tomorrow.

Oh, Tuesday.

Being a little homesick these days. Wishing New York wasn't 24,832,651 miles away. Or more accurately, 657.67 miles. Same thing.

Like My Hat?

Day 3 of the yeast free diet and I've lost 3 lbs! I mean it's nothing to write home about.. or blog about.. but it's something! Probably just from not drinking a bottle of wine every night.

Back in December, I wrote this post about how I got a new job and was no longer bartending but didn't tell you what I was actually doing. This was mostly because I didn't really know what I was doing.. and still don't.

It's definitely a job that I never saw myself doing. Like ever. In the history of ever.

I took a job at a construction company.

I know.. huh?

I'm not actually doing any construction.. the heaviest thing I can lift is a bottle of Absolut. I just get to go out to job sites and boss people around while wearing a really sweet hard hat and safety goggles.

And this is my little very undecorated office:
Sadly, the office didn't come with the old truck outside the window.
I took this picture the day that I started so add a lap top and a million papers to make it really messy and you get the picture.

So that's where I'm sitting all day while bossing construction workers around and blogging. Any ideas on how to turn my office into a Pinterest masterpiece would be extremely helpful and welcomed.

Happy Humping Day folks!

A Little Rant & A Recipe

Day 2 of the yeast free diet and I’m only slightly depressed. Go me. I even made it through a whole episode of the Bachelor last night without any wine.. mostly because crazy pants Victoria had enough for me. I’m not going to be all Judgy McJudgerson here because I’ve shed my fair share of tears while heavily intoxicated, but I’ve never done it on national TV.. which is why I’m currently having a better day than Victoria, even if I can’t have a Diet Coke. I’ve never met Juan Pablo though.. so maybe she’s having a better day? That bitch is probably drinking a Diet Coke at this very moment.

End Bachelor rant.
End Diet Coke rant.. (maybe)

So I’m going to attempt to be domesticated tonight and make an actual meal.. a yeast free meal to be exact. Thought I’d share the recipe since it looks and sounds so yummy and its good for you. I do have to warn you that this is waaay more involved than my usual Kraft mac&cheese.

Spaghetti Squash Casserole



•1 large spaghetti squash

•1 pound ground turkey

•3 roma tomatoes, diced

•1/2 yellow onion, chopped

•1 C pizza sauce (1 C tomato sauce + 1/2 t dried basil + 1/2 t dried oregano + 1/4 t garlic powder. Mix well.)

•1 t dried basil

•3 garlic cloves, minced

•3 eggs, whisked

•salt and pepper, to taste


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, face cut sides down on baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.

3. While squash is cooking, brown your ground turkey and set to the side.

4. Once squash is done cooking, using a fork, scrape out the insides of the squash making your "noodles" and place in an 8x8 greased baking dish.

5. Reduce oven to 350 degrees.

6. In baking dish, add turkey, pizza sauce, tomatoes, onions, garlic, basil, salt and pepper.

7. Add whisked eggs and mix everything together.

8. Bake in the oven for 1 hour, until you begin to see a "crust" forming on the top.

9. Serve hot and enjoy!

*If you are not following a yeast-free eating program, feel free to add a little Parmesan cheese to the top.. ya lucky little biotch.

Happy Tuesday lovers & wish me luck on my attempted domesticatedness! .. it's a word.

Nicole Kidman Is One Lucky Lady.

I'm a complete waste of life today because of Keith Urban. Little Big Town may have something to do with it too. Pontoon is still my jam.

I suck at taking pictures when I have a beer in my hand.

Nothing I say today is going to amount to anything so I'm going to just leave you with Keith and Miranda.

PS. He did this song last night with Karen Fairchild from Little Big Town and it was ah-mazing.

Calling All Party People

I'm pimping myself out today.. but hopefully I'll be your pimp tomorrow.
I'm new'ish to the blogging world.. again.. and really want to "meet" new people because I'm sure that in the last few months that I've been MIA, a lot of new people have come into the world of blogging. I figure the best way to go about doing this is to sponsor people.. gain a little exposure but also help others out at the same time. I'm not ready to pay big blogs because I'm just starting out again so I'd really like to sponsor smaller blogs like myself.  
& I mostly just want to decorate my sidebar with all of your pretty faces.
so let's talk about sponsoring.. AKA swapping.
AKA let's be besties and swap each other's buttons!

Just send me an email at
(with the subject line SPONSOR)
&& a link to your cute little button
Then add me, I'll do a little happy dance.. then add you!

Easy Peazy.

**If you do decide to sponsor me, I'd really love for you to do a (optional) guest post.

Is Vodka Yeast Free?

So today's Friday right? No? Okay then..

Ever since I've started my new job, I have been eating like absolute crap. We go out for lunch pretty much everyday and most of the time, our lunches look like mine did yesterday:

Then when I get home, Paul and I usually go out to eat because I'm in no mood to cook or we have nothing that looks remotely appetizing in the refrigerator.

I'd like to not look like a relative of Honey Boo Boo come summer so I've been looking for a way to eat better and lose weight in the process. Yesterday, I was doing my daily stalking and saw that Stephanie was doing something pretty fabulous. She was inviting people to go yeast free with her for 30 days. It was like she knew I was looking for a change. I swear.

Stephanie went yeast free in 2010 and lost 20 lbs by doing so.. Uh, sign me up! So.. I did just that. I went here and signed up for the 30-day yeast free challenge. It's free and you receive food guidelines, grocery lists, recipes and meal plans which I really need because I have no idea how to eat yeast free.

I do know that alcohol isn't allowed though (insert hysterically crying face here) and giving up vodka I can handle.. but wine?! DON'T TAKE MY WINE!! .. but it's only 30 days! And who doesn't love a good challenge?

 Famous last words? Probably.

So now I'm inviting you all to join too! The challenge starts Monday so we have all weekend to eat Pizza Bites and drink extra large margaritas. It'll be fun.. and we'll look extremely sexual in our bikinis.

Now go visit Stephanie because she's a yeast free expert and I have no idea what I'm talking about.. BUT I will in 30 days!

Jackson's Story

Recently, I've been in contact with a high school friend of mine who asked me to pass along some information about a very special 2 year old boy in his life. If you could just take some time to read about Jackson and maybe pass this along, I'd be incredibly thankful.

Jackson has a very rare skin disease, about 50 out of 1 million child births are diagnosed with generic EB with only 5% of them having Jackson's condition.

Epidermolysis Bullosa is a group of genetic conditions that cause the skin to be very fragile and to blister easily. Blisters and skin erosions form in response to minor injury or friction, such as rubbing or scratching. The signs and symptoms of this condition vary widely among affected individuals. In mild cases, blistering may primarily affect the hands, feet, knees, and elbows. Severe cases of this condition involve widespread blistering that can lead to vision loss, disfigurement, and other serious medical problems.

Researchers classify dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa into three major types. Although the types differ in severity, their features overlap significantly and they are caused by mutations in the same gene.

Autosomal recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa, Hallopeau-Siemens type (RDEB-HS) is the most severe, classic form of the condition and is what Jackson suffers from. Affected infants are typically born with widespread blistering and areas of missing skin. Most often, blisters are present over the whole body and affect mucous membranes such as the moist lining of the mouth and digestive tract. As the blisters heal, they result in severe scarring. Scarring in the mouth and esophagus can make it difficult to chew and swallow food, leading to chronic malnutrition and slow growth.

Additional complications of progressive scarring can include fusion of the fingers and toes, loss of fingernails and toenails, joint deformities that restrict movement, and eye inflammation leading to vision loss. Jackson will eventually have webbed feet and hands and his armpits could even fuse together. He is completely “mummified” with bandages to prevent his skin from rubbing off.

Sadly, Jackson is in need of a few items that insurance will not cover. His parents have created a Save Jax fundraiser on an online fundraiser site known as

Jax’s personal site is: in which people can donate money directly to him.You can donate any denomination, which will directly help Jackson's family buy him the items he’s in need of.

Jax's family also has sites set up for “Jackson’s Story” at and

Just passing this along could really help Jackson and his family. Thanks guys.

To Whom It May Concern:

Dear Michigan,

             I just wanted to thank you for making my commute to work so enjoyable this morning. I loved having to dig my car out of 3 feet of snow in below freezing temperatures, just to get stuck again and have some toothless stranger laugh at me. The ride to work was also pleasant.. I couldn’t see a thing so I followed a tractor trailer and just hoped that he wasn’t driving off a cliff. Thankfully, he wasn’t. The broken windshield wiper was just an added bonus.

            I’m hoping you can sense my sarcasm here. If it wasn’t for your beautiful summers and craft beers, you and I would no longer be friends.


PS. The only cute thing about you right now is Remi.

Super busy at work today for some reason so this little letter will have to do.. Hopefully pictures of Remi eating snow makes up for it. Keep warm everybody. Is it June yet?

New Year's Recap

Whenever I'm having a good time, I forget to take photos. I don't know if I actually forget or if I'm just too busy hanging out with my vodka/soda to get my really expensive camera phone out and snap a few.. which probably explains why I took a total of two pictures on New Year's Eve.

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

I must've been having an exceptionally good time because I didn't even Instagram them until today. We actually had a pretty low key New Year's compared to others that I've had in the past but with the hang over I had on Wednesday, you would never think so. Woof. I guess just another sign that 26 year old me could never hang with 21 year old me.

PDiddy and I had his brother and his wife over for dinner and drinks.. Except I forgot to eat and just drank a bottle of champagne instead. Oops. Fast forward to midnight (which we spent inside a cab.. romantic.) and we went to a couple places down town where I thought vodka & Red Bull was a good idea. It wasn't. RBV's = death. We did witness a good chick fight though which was pretty amusing. Saw a lot more vagina than I would've liked to but I guess vagina just happens sometimes.

I spent all of New Year's day recovering on my couch with Netflix and discovered Orange is the New Black.. and again, saw a lot more vagina than I would've liked to. I don't think I moved once.. unless playing Candy Crush counts.. then I moved a lot.

Welp, TGIF folks. I'm about to do a whole lot of nothing this weekend and I'm actually pretty excited about it. See ya Monday.
