Its ok!

Hello Everybody!

Christmas being on a Sunday this year really messed up my entire week! I keep thinking today is friday..and clearly it is Thursday. 
I haven't linked up with Neely for It's Ok Thursday in awhile so I thought I would join in on the fun again!

Its Ok Thursdays

Here it goes..

It's Ok That...

Yesterday my post was suppose to be the Top 10 things of 2011 and I stopped at 9..just completely even forgetting poor #10.

Christmas has been over for four days now and I still have all of my presents sitting under the tree because I'm not sure where they are exactly going to go.

Since Christmas I've worn yoga pants 99% of the time because I fear I won't be able to button my jeans after all the Christmas cookies I ate.

I've had a twilight movie marathon {twice} since I got the first three on DVD.

I've stalked flights to Baltimore & Dallas to visit friends and family everyday! My Christmas moola is burning a hole in my pocket.

I have only applied to two big girl jobs since graduation.

I have carefully filled out a wishlist from the stores I got gift cards too to avoid all the crowds post Christmas.

I cried when I got into my car this morning after saying bye to my best friend!
It never fails!

It's 12:47pm and I am still in my bed writing this post.

What are ya'll ok with today?

Have a good one!


Wednesday, December 28, 2011


Good afternoon all.

I know I mentioned this yesterday but I really can not believe that 2011 is coming to a close. I know they say as you get older {gag} that time goes faster {double gag}
But, 2011 gave a whole new meaning on fast. 
I experienced a lot in 2011 and some of it I'm so very happy I went through it and others I could have done without.

Let's recap, shall we?

1. {Graduation}
I know, I know I keep talking about it. THis is the last time you will hear about it, I promise.

2. {My blog}
I never really understood blogs until I started blogging. I could not be happier that I started this blog. I know I don't have many followers but I appreciate all 41 of them and the comments they leave me daily. I've met a few wonderful people that I hope to one day meet in person and keep building all my blogging relationships

3. {Gained and Lost}
I lost a lot of friends over very petty things and realized that the "friends" I had always known and stood up for and did whatever for betrayed me, mocked me, and made me the center of their jokes. I was hurt then but am better now. Through all of that I gained really good friends in the friends I had. I realized they were the true ones, the sincere ones. 

4. {New Job}
I left my job with BCBG Max Azria and started my new job with Bubbles Beauty. 
I love going to work everyday and being around a wonderful staff. I have such a supportive boss and friends there I am very excited to see what 2012 brings job wise.

5. {Tattoo}
I got my first tattoo. I have always wanted a tattoo but was either to scared or wasn't sure what I wanted exactly. My best friend sent me a picture one day of best friend tattoo's with the infinity symbol and I instantly fell in love with it! 
It was beyond hard for me to have her move multiple states away but it was nice for us to get them together so even when I get sad still mad  that she isn't Ohio anymore I know she is still my best.

6. {Heartbreak}
2011 started off with heartbreak. Friendship and boy wise. It made me stronger in the end and that is all we will say about that.

7. {Family Time}
I spent a lot of time with family in 2011 and don't regret one second of it. My Grandma has had a tough year with first signs of Alzheimers and it is tough. Growing up you think your grandparents will ever get old and when they do it is hard. 
I spent a week with my family in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. We use to vacation there all the time when we were kids so it was nice to go back.

8. {I work out}
I started working out on a regular basis again. After almost THREE long, boring, getting fat years my knee doctor has cleared me almost all kind of physical activity again. Having reconstructive knee surgery really took a toll on me. I gained 15 lbs {woof} and am happy to now get into the swing of things again.
Plus, it also gives me an excuse to buy cute workout clothes.
Warning: If you ever have knee surgery do not youtube your surgery the night before like I did. It makes for a very terrible experience :)

9. {Big Brother}
I became the closest I have been with my brother in years and I can not be happier about it.
I look up to him and admire him more than he will ever know!

What are your favorites of 2011?

Top 5: 2011.

I'm back! 
Phew! It feels like it has been forever since I've blogged! Christmas was wonderful and I couldn't have felt more blessed than I did this year!
It is hard to believe that in just a few short days 2011 will be coming to a close! I can't really say that I'm all that sad about it. 2011 and I really didn't see eye to eye on some things so I welcome 2012 with open arms!

With that being said..

I'm linking up with Rachel for Top 5 Tuesday: 2011!
Go link up with her! Go on, I say!

Just Peachy

1. {Movie}
It's hard for me to pick just one movie but I'd have to go with..
I have to pick this because it has Ryan Gosling in it and he is gorgeous. The end.

2. {TV Show}
I am a TV addict but my heart belongs to Jacks..
Sons Of Anarchy. These boys be bad ass.

3. {Song)
I again am in love with so many songs but I think I will have to dedicate 2011 to..

Super Bass by homegirl Nicki. I'm obnoxiously obsessed with this song. I instantly become happy when I hear this song and if I have been drinking I may actually in fact think I am Nicki and rap it word. for. word.

4. {Thing that Happened}
By far the best moment of 2011..
Graduating from the greatest place there is: The Ohio State University
Graduating was not exactly easy for me between transfering, not having my priorities straight, and just wanting to give up! But I stuck with it and walking across that stage and getting a diploma from one of the greatest universities will forever be priceless to me.

5. {Christmas Present}
I've never been so excited to wash my face.
My bright turqouise clairsonic was by far the best gift I got. I've never been so excited to wash my face at night! My face has also never cleared up so fast nor felt so soft!

Those are just a few of my favorite top 5 of 2011! I will go into a more detailed one tomorrow!
What are your top 5? Did you have a wonderful holiday?

Infinite Friendship: Tattoo Style.

Happy Thursday!

Can you believe it is Thursday and Christmas is just three short days away?
holy. moly.

I know I have ranted and raved about my best friend Gabby, but you aer going to have to read yet ANOTHER post about her..sorry kids.

Like I have said many times Gabby is the best, most amazing best friend a girl could ask for. I have experienced rock bottom with her and peaks in my life with her. I thank the heavens above I can count on her! So, while she was home this week for Christmas she had mentioned the idea to get matching tattoo's.

So today we hopped in my car and took the plunge and headed to the tattoo parlor. Neither one of have a tattoo so we didn't really know what to expect. In typical Gabby & Kelsey fashion 5 minutes into the process we had to pee {twice}, we were hungry {I had an orange and nuts in my purse, phew} and we couldn't decide on what kind of sign/writing/no writing we wanted on our tattoo. 
Our tattoo artist was incredible, kind, funny, adorable super sexy and I want to marry him. He did his best to make us feel comfortable and was joking with us. 
Gabby and I fell in love with him for one main reason: he cursed, and by cursed I mean say the "f" word a lot, which happens to be Gabby and I's favorite word in the English language.
I of course was worried to get my tattoo on my foot because I hadn't gotten in a pedicure in awhile, typical kelsey.
Gabby ended up getting hers on her rib, and mine on my foot.

I was shocked the pain was as little as it was. Don't get me wrong, I squeezed Gabby's hand and said some curse words out loud. But, I predicted it to be much, much worse.
We both got matching infinity signs, very small and simple. 
Why the infinity sign you ask? Infinity clearly means forever. Which is excatly what Gabby & I's friendship will be. 
Sorry Gabby, you are stuck with me forrrevvver now.
I could never imagine Gabby not being my friend, even if I feel like we are thousands of miles apart {Oh wait, we are!} I will always know she is going to stick by my side know matter what.
I'm lucky and blessed to have a best friend like that and she means the world to me!

Here goes nothin!

All finished!

yay! We survived!
I really need to start doing something about this chipmunk face of mine!

Tis' the Season?

I woke up this morning after another whirlwind weekend thinking to myself...
"Christmas is just 6 days away, correct?"
I of course answered yes to myself.
Followed by this next question..

Then why is everyone in the state of Ohio so damn grumpy.

Before I continue on I only have myself to blame for getting angry at all the Holiday madness because I wait every year till the week day before Christmas to do all my shopping!
However, this year I thought I would get clever and go yesterday {Sunday} and get it done early in the morning. 
HUGE mistake.
I can not tell you how many times the back of my ankles were clipped with carts {I have bruises!} and how many elbows were pushed into my shoulders.
Whatever happened to tis' the season and being merry and bright.

Clearly, these people have not been tuning into their local radio stations and listening to Christmas carols.
Comment card: I suggest they do.

After five hours of shopping and throwin elbows I still didn't finish my Christmas shopping. I have to show for my shopping today is two pathetic looking Macy bags and bruised ankles.

{totally butchered that word}

So I have made a personal and executive decision that to get back into my Christmas spirit today I will eat countless pieces of Ghiradelli peppermint bark and have Christmas Vacation playing constantly in my DVD player.

Happy Monday kids, Happy Monday!
Now go out and spread some Christmas cheer!

Happy Friday ladies!

This week flew by and I usually would be happy about this but seeing as how I have yet to do any Christmas shopping I wish it would have slooowed down just a smidge. 

I'm sure all of you are asking what in the h-e-double hockey sticks is this girlfran talkin about?

I'm talking about the most delicious smelling hair products in the history of hair products. 
I'm sorry Morrocan Oil, but there is a new man in town!

Dry texture spray- perfect hair in a bottle. 
I use this stuff when I wear all the time now! It acts as a dry shampoo and spray wax at the same time! It holds everything in place, makes it piecy and doesn't make it rock hard and it smells delicious girls, delicious!

Beach Wave Spray
I use this before I use the texture spray and it makes my hair look luscious and beachy! 
Doesn't everyone want that?

I'm beyond excited work started carrying this line and it actually does work wonders! If you can find it at a salon near you, buy it. 

Sorry to chat and run but this girl has got to go stock up on some Christmas presents. 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

You mean to tell me NOTHING is wrong?

Today was one of my three days I have off before Christmas. 

Yes, you heard me correctly just three days! So, I had planned to start and finish my Christmas shopping today. FAIL. MAJOR FAIL.

My car over the past year has just been real sassy. It will stahl and stutter and make some rattles and then shut down and then just go along my merry little way! 

Today my lovely lady decided it didn't want to move along her merry little way and left me STRANDED in the parking lot. 

So, finally after it started I trucked it on over to the Honda dealership and waited TWO hours for the nice {and oh so very cute} boy to tell me that nothing was wrong with my car.

You are right mister Honda man, it just doesn't start and shakes VERY loudly! But, don't you worry there is nothing wrong with it. Makes. perfect. sense. 

Needless to say, I'm not a happy camper and I didn't get one Christmas present purchased. 

Now I'm going to need all my little elf's to not only purchase the rest of my presents but start car shopping for me as well.

Happy Thursday kids! It is bound to get better, right?

Oh Sh!t Moment..

I just looked down at my calendar and saw it was Wednesday? Is this correct, and if so, how?

I mean do not get me wrong when I say I am a-ok with a fast week but I feel like it has been roughly 12 hours since the weekend ended, wrong.

I would consider myself a very smart, intelligent college graduate {nope, still not sick of saying it} and am usually pretty good at planning ahead and for the future, until today happened. I had my very first oh shiiiiit moment about the future. 

It hit me like a ton of bricks...

I have to become an adult and search for a big girl job {screaaaching break noise please!} 
How? When? What? Why? 
Sneaking smirnoff ice's into my basement with all my friends at the prime age of 15 literally feels like six months ago and now because I have this fancy and oh so expensive piece of paper I am now forced to find a real job with real pay and real hours? 

Screw this kids, I'm going back to school! {siiiiiike}

But, seriously? Now what? 

Don't get me wrong I actually enjoy working and having responsibilites but there is something about having a 9-5 job and all of those goodies that come along with it that slightly startled me!

I have mentioned before how I have had a pretty debbie downer year and am looking to move out of Ohio! Do any of you have suggestions on where I should try looking or have any good companies {degree is in retail merchandising and marketing} that I should research?

Hit me with it sistas. 
Until then, I encourage all of you that are currently in college to stay there, and to those of you who are in the working world: help.

Peace out loves.


Graduation & Top 5 Tuesday!

Do ya'll still remember me? I feel like I have really slacked on this thing lately and I apologize oh so many times for it! 

This weekend could be summed in two words: lightning fast.

Between working, weddings, graduation, family dinners I am beyond exhausted!

I could go into every little detail and type it all out of what I did this weekend, but, let's be honest that takes a lot of time that I do not have patience for. So, instead you shall see my weekend in pictures and by weekend I mean graduation because I didn't take pictures of anything else I did! 
I apologize now for the nasty hair and blowfish type looking face! I indulged in some adult beverages the night before {naturally} and was all doped on cold medicine the next day. Go on, make fun.

 getting my diploma! Yes, I wore my cowboy boots with tights and a black dress. Scooore. 
 Me & Mama
 Ain't that a pretty lookin family!
 CUTEST grandparents ever & it was my papoos {grandpa's} 83rd birthday!
 Big brother, Bryan!
 yay! I did it!
 Daddy's little girl!
 Most expensive piece of paper I own. 
Graduation Day=Pay day!
I'm actually really mad I didn't take a picture for a OOTD from graduation because I'm going to toot my own horn when I say it was a-dor-able.

I didn't get to link up with Rachel last week for Top 5 Tuesday so this week I am making sure I do! {Look at that dedication, Rachel!!} This week is christmas carols so take your little tooshie on over there and link up to, NOW :)

Just Peachy

1. All I want for Christmas is you-Mariah Carey
I only blare this song in my car and sing it at the top of my lungs. Possibly throwing in some hand jives and head bobs, but I can not confirm or deny that.
I also enjoy the remix with J. Biebs as well.

2. Merry Christmas, Baby- Hanson
I infact listen to Hanson's christmas cd the entire month of November, Decemeber & Janaury and am also still convinced one day Zac and I will become married and make beautiful blonde babies.

3. Christmas (Baby please come home)- Michael Buble
Seeing as how I would like to make sweet love to Michael Buble's voice {little too much?} I enjoy any of his christmas songs but this one just takes the cake.

4. The Christmas Song- Frank Sinatra version
Just melts my heart when I hear this version.

5. Mistletoe- Justin Bieber
I had to have one song on here from his Christmas album and this one just happens to be my favorite!

Phew, that was a long post! I hope you enjoyed it! What are you favorite christmas songs?

Have a glorious Tuesday!

VH1's Best week EVER!

Happy Friday!

I know I was a total slacker this week on posts but I'm pretty sure not many people noticed! Between worrying about the water issue in our basement, studying for finals, and whatever else I do on a daily basis has just really taken up a lot of my time. Rude. 

However, this really has been VH1's best week EVER!


I was pretty positive I was going to but when it comes down the wire of your college career ending you tend to think of stupid things that could go wrong to prevent you from it. But don't you worry because this girl has finally earned a college degree and it feels oh so good!

Besides graduating college our local radio show held their annual Jingle Ball concert last night that some friends and I attended. Now, when I say concert it was poor like a room full of either teeny boppers or teeny boppers mom trying to be in their 20's again. Jaaaaassssoooonnnnnn Derrruullloooo (typing it how he screams it in ALL of his songs) performed along with Taio Cruz. You better believe I got my dynamite dancing on with my hands up in the air! Foster the people perfomed (AMAZING live!) It was the perfect way to end the day seeing as how I found out my final grade hours before the concert! 

Here is my night in pictures because I'm to tired to keep typing. Lazy, I know.

Enjoy your day kiddos!

Pin it.

Hello everyone!

I know I have been absent lately but we had a small 2 inches of standing water flood in our basement this week and it has just been cray cray at my house. My room was completely ruined and I was scrambling around like a nut case trying to get all my shoes,clothes,purses  belongings off the floor and out of the waters path. Not. Fun. At. All.

So, instead of worrying about clothes I can't save I'm linking up for Oh how Pinteresting Wednesday and loving all the clothes on here instead!

loves it.

perfect comfy/casual outfit
This is precious.

I die for this outfit.
I will take the entire outfit. pronto.

Is anyone else as addicted to pinterest as I am? I mean on average I probably spend three hours a day on this website. If I would have studied as much as I pin I would have probably ended up with an A this quarter. Wishful thinking.

What are your favorite pins? What do you like best about pinterest?

Make it a fab day, ladies.
