Rants & Raves

Quote: "If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely." -Ronald Dahl

This week has been a weird week for me. I've been feeling lots of  little highs and little lows. I've just been uber emotional (this is so unlike me -NOT-).

For the past 9 months or so I've been the happiest I've been in a long long long time. My life is so great and I am so happy just being at the stage of life I am in. I am honestly so content with just being right now. Even though it's been smooth sailing I do, at times, get a little blue. Luckily this isn't very often but when it happens it's nice to vent and/or laugh about how ridiculous I am being. I also try to look on the sunny side.

SO on that note...


To the big manly girl who literally PUNCHED me in the sternum in my soccer game last night,

I am sorry that I am faster than you. That does not mean you should try to slow me down by taking a cheap shot to my chest. No, I don't appreciate your big fist against my breast bone. Next time you decide to punch me please do it in front of the ref so you get carded. Also- do not punch me then run away. I'd like to try to get a good punch in myself. Straught TO YOUR FACE.  (side note- I am a huge wimp and wouldn't be able to fight her... but I can dream).


Dear Sweet Baby Jesus,

Thank you for giving me such strong, muscular, tanned, toned, legs (ha jk) that allow me to run. Without these silky smoothed always shaved (jk again) puppies I wouldn't be able to even play soccer. My health allows me to play each week and for that I thank you. I LOVE LOVE LOVE playing this sport and hope I'll be able to for a long time.


If you give a mouse a cookie...

They will take that cookie, steal all your stuff, and kick you in the a**. That was a little dramatic but lately I've been very generous with a certain person and it always ends up biting me in the butt. Why don't I just give up on the person you ask? Well it's a work relationship and I think the best way to go about it is to keep trying. It just seems that one step forward...TWO steps back. Nonetheless I will continue to try with this person. And I will most likely continue to get screwed.

Oh well.


It's mid-year BONUS time!!! It's ALWAYS nice when your bonus is more than you expected. ALWAYS. So although I have a problem with a certain little "mouse", it's nice to know for the most part I am appreciated and valued at my job.

Makes a girl feel swell.


Dear female hormones,

You suck. Please leave me alone.


At least I don't have to deal with a penis every day.



Kale is so delicious. I love it and would eat it every meal if I could. But why oh why does it have to make my kitchen smell like urine when I cook it. Some night I'd like to cook my dinner and not have to wonder if the dog peed on the floor. I'm sure my roommate would appreciate it too.

On that note- sorry we keep blaming you for peeing Reecie. Our bad.


Craisins. You. Are. The. Jam.

I can put you in anything for a sweet little surprise. I can also just eat you by the fist full out of the container. Which I do. Often.


Alright, that's enough ranting and raving for this girl.

I'll leave you will some pictures from this past weekend. We went to the lake and then to Clemson to watch my little sister's first college soccer game ever. As expected she was a baller and did INCREDIBLE.

It's probably why she was name SEC Preseason All-Conference Freshman of the year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! proud of her.

Our little chicklet is all grown up and kicking tail.

Way to go.

Enough said.

Hope everyone has a great week full of lots of Raves and few Rants.

Smell ya later supa stars.

If you really knew me...

Quote: "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." -Helen Keller

If you really knew me...

  • You'd know I have an irrational fear of roaches. I cannot and will not go near them. Even if they are dead I can't go near them. I will avoid a room for days until someone else picks up the dead roach. Not really practical of me.

  • You'd know I LOVE sushi. I eat it at least once a week. I'm starting to become concerned about the amount of mercury I consume weekly though. It hasn't stopped my sushi consumption yet so we'll see. I may start glowing soon.

  • You'd know I bruise like a peach. After almost every soccer game I am bruised. If I end up brushing/bumping up against something then I'll most likely bruise. I'm not sick or anything... I've checked it out. I just bruise like a girly little peach.

 Seriously, see below... those are pretty normal for me.

  • You'd know I always, I mean ALWAYS, dress to kill. I'm always put together. I'm probably the most fashionable person you'll meet. Appearances are everything people.

  • You'd know I dress up sexy any chance I get. Any themed event or holiday - you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be the sexiest dressed. Gotta impress the fellas.

  • You'd know I'm very spiritual/religious but sometimes (ok ok alot of times) I just don't like to get up for church. Good thing Jesus is my homeboy and I'd like to believe he understands.  But on the other hand... when I do get motivated and get up to go to church with the family it makes me very happy. I love sitting next to them and intently listening (ok totally goofing around) to the priest. It makes me feel really close to them.
  •  You'd know that I never complain that my dog is not a lab mix. It doesn't bother me at all that I ended up with a rat child instead of the lab mix the Humane Society told me I'd get. Psh- thanks for that huge lie.

This little tiny "lab mix" grew up to be this weird little "rat". I probably should of guessed better.

  • You'd also know that I would not trade my little rat child for anything. So she's not exactly what I planned for. She turned out to be EXACTLY what I needed. She brings such joy to my life.
  • You'd know I don't really like pets that much. I think pets really are useless creatures. I also never take pictures of them, sit around amused and laughing at them, and I NEVER love on them.
You can see how much I dislike them below:

We love our old woman Coe.


How many heads can hang out the window? 3!

Sun protection is so important. 
Scaredy Rat hates the vet.

When the seat's taken... make your own.

Why yes, I'd love to sit with you at the dinner table and then pass out for 20 minutes.

Reecie trying to drink her Grand ma ma's beer. Rude.

Facebooking with her Grand ma ma.

  • You'd know I love my life, I love my family, I love my friends, I love my job, I love my dog, I love my car, I love everything! Ok so not really everything but I'm feeling pretty loving right now apparently.
It's almost the weekend... maybe that's why!

Smell ya later.
