Hey It’s Okay

Its Ok Thursdays

So I have had a very stressy week, so I might be off on some tangents this week for Hey it’s okay

It’s Okay…..

To be very angry with Airforce….. He got in an accident in my car ( no injuries just him speeding while it was raining) and THEN parked my car in a Tow zone and got it towed today…

To have tried very hard not to scream when I was told the cost of the Tow, which I will have to pay for because Airforce, does not have and is not looking for a job.

To be in LOVE with the 2 new Skin79 BB creams I got, I still love Hot Pink, but now I have the Hot Orange and VIP Gold as well.

To still be looking forward to my move even though there is SO much to do that I haven’t even started.

To be actually planning on going to the GYM Friday morning.

To be going to the gym ALONE!

To have decided to do the 50 Questions That will Free Your Mind, that I have seen on Amber’s and Melissa’s Blogs. Although I plan to do it in parts.

To still be REALLY scared about not having a job lined up when I move to Memphis.


So what’s okay with you this week?

Hey It’s Okay

Its Ok Thursdays

So It’s Okay/….
To seriously wonder if drinking 132 oz of water a day is actually good for me.
To know I am not drinking NEAR that amount of water.
To have seriously lost my mojo where exercise and weight loss is concerned
To know I need to get that mojo back quickly.
To really wish I could win the Lottery.
To be so not ready to move at all.
To have gone through one drawer and half my closet and set aside some “garage sale” donate items
To be already missing my job, even though I know I am leaving for a good reason. 
to apparently be really sad on this weeks its okays…
To be a little annoyed that Kensei thinks I need to "chill out" and "not be so uptight" about things, such as stressing over the move, and my dislike of Zombies....
To wonder how and why people LIKE Zombies???

So here goes!

{1} Tell us about your job/daily routine.

I work at a hotel, so depending on my shift (I’ll use 3-11 right for the example) I wake up at 6 let my puppy out, curl back in bed for 3 hours (even though I have work that needs to be done,) eat breakfast/lunch take a shower, drive to work, answer phones, kick people out of the pool who aren’t registered, read temps on a/cs, explain to young kids you MUST be 21 to rent a room, more phone answering, and think yes I DO need you to fill out all the items I asked you for, I am not just asking for things for the fun of it.
{2} What is your favorite place in your home to relax? (bonus points for a pic)

My Bed hands down. 022 Penni on my bed!

{3} Summer cool treat...popsicle or ice-cream?

Both, I love a good popsicle and ice-cream is great anytime.

{4} Be sweet to yourself, list 3 things you LIKE about YOU!

Eyes, hair, and sense of humor.

{5} If someone saw my __________ I would likely die of embarrassment!

Bedroom, I am in the middle of tearing it apart for my big move, so everything is EVERYWHERE and nothing is getting done.

May Birchbox—Gossip Girl

Honestly I’ve never seen the show, but I did read a few of the books, and I generally love the theme boxes!  So what is Birchbox? Birchbox is a monthly subscription service for $10 a month that sends you a pretty little box with 4-5 samples of all sorts of fun things!

So here’s what I got!


Gossip Girl themed cover, love the NYC Skyline!


Chic Sunday Brunch was my theme.



Arquiste L’Etrog- Expensive perfume sample, pretty packaging for the sample, not something I would Splurge on.


Twist band Skinny Headband, I love twist bands, I’ve gotten the ponytail sized ones twice in different Birchboxes  and I like the way they look, wouldn’t pay 20 for 6 of them though.


Color Club Disco Nap polish, like the color, LOVE getting polishes in boxes, but I honestly didn’t feel like it fit with the theme, my sister got the beach day box and her polish was Clambake Coral, which fit wonderfully.

010Was thrilled for this sample, because I do not go a day without using my Skin79 Pink BB Cream. I was a little upset because the sample was empty, but with WONDERFUL customer service I emailed Birchbox, got a reply within 2 days and Birchbox is sending my a new sample to try out! I am very happy with that, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE their customer service.


Gotta say I was a LITTLE disappointed with this sample, of the Beauty  Blender cleaner, last month or the month before they sent out some beauty blenders, I didn’t get one, but I liked my box then so I was okay with it. Got the cleaner for a product I never got, and even though it says you can use it to clean brushes I use olive oil and dish soap to clean mine, MUCH cheaper.


I though the note card was ADORABLE! xoxo on the front and blank on the back, I plan on writing someone a letter with this!


So what did you get in your birchbox? Have you subscribed? Please let me know!

10 Random Songs

So I got bored tonight and decided that I would turn on my Sony Walkman and turn it to random mode and post the first 10 songs and what I think about them.


First song:

1. The Big Bang 2—A Doctor Who song, it made me smile when I heard it, and the Oh My God He’s Wearing A Fez verse always makes me giggle.

2. Unapologize—Carrie Underwood, it’s a song that seems to always come on to fit my mood.

3. Mambo No 5—Lou Bega, this song makes me dance, and something about it always brightens my day, I mean come on I bet you are humming it now.

4. Never Knew I Needed—Ne-Yo from Princess and the Frog, it is such a sweet song.

5. Good Night Demon Slayer—Voltaire, have you heard this song?? I am linking it because it is a really interesting song, plus I am teaching myself the violin part.

6. Baby, You’ve Got What It Takes—Michael Buble, I love old style songs like this!

7. The DJ Is Mine—Wonder Girls, Gotta have some KPop I am glad this song came on, it’s catchy and sticks in your head

8. What A Comforting Thing To Know—Richard Chamberlain, I would have seriously been shocked if no musicals came up, considering at least 600 of my 868 songs are from a musical of some kind.

9. Year 3000—Jonas Brothers, yes I have them, but only this song and poor unfortunate souls, I just liked the beat.

10. Pretty Fly For A White Guy—Offspring classic song that still makes me laugh.


So what’s on your IPod, or MP3 player? first 10 random songs and no cheating, although if you do we won’t know! Please let me know if you do this one I’d love to see everyone's!

Okay so I am moving to TN FINALLY in 2 short months, that’s two months to get everything settled in SC and two months to get money saved for the move, and two months to freak myself out…

Today my freak out has been focused on work. I will need a job in Memphis, I’ll be going to school at least 3 days a week, but I will need to have money for rent and food and other important things.

But I’ve been worrying like crazy about not being able to get a job, a decent job, any job. I have a lot of experience but what if I can’t? I know I’m worrying about something I know nothing about and couldn’t change if it happens, but I can’t get the thought out of my head…

Sorry for the whiney post. I'll back soon and
