Oh how Pinteresting!

Oh hello again!

It's Wednesday people, that means we are half way through the week.

Hooolllaa!

I'm linking up with Michelle for oh how pinteresting Wednesday since I haven't done it in awhile and have found some precious pins lately.


Spring: hurry so I can wear this.


Love the lace.
 I want to try this look: asap.

loving statement pieces lately.

My pins are minimal this week because I have been trying to stay off pinterest lately.
By "staying off" I mean only spending 3 hours on it instead of 6.

What are some of your favorite pins this week?

Don't forget to link up with Michelle! Such a fun link up!

Happy hump day!

The time I got pissed on by a golden retriever & protein bars.

Happy Monday.
How was your weekend? What all did you do?

I noticed I lost my first follower today..
Ouchies.

There is a lot going on with my blog title today, don't ya think.
Let's get started.

So, my hair for the past year and a half or so has been the same color. Dirty blonde with some lighter highlights. The dirty blonde being my natural color was gasp! starting to come in greyish/ashy.
No no, this could not be happening. 
Keeping the same hair color for me is an accomplishment.
So, being this color was getting old.

...I strolled into work over the weekend and let a stylist do this..

ps. why is my face so chubby?



After revealing my hair color to a few girls I work with one said this to me..

"it kinda looks like a golden retriever pissed on your head..."

awesome.

I'm still getting used to it and I know it will fade but for now my hair is loud and proud.

Tonight I am going to make a batch of these bad boys..
Peanut Butter/Chocolate Protein Bars.


I've made them before {via pinterest} and want to try some different things.
I will post a recipe & review sometime this week.
I'm sure you will all be dying to have it.

Have a fantastic day.

My Religion & Beliefs: Sex and the city.

Hello my little bloggies!

It really feels like ages since I blogged last! 
I'm not a fan of this feeling.

Recently, my Dad downloaded the HBOgo app onto his iPad and it has done nothing but wonders for my life! It has all seasons of every great show people have ever invented: 
Entourage
The Sopranos
Boardwalk Empire
Derek Jeter's 3K {ok, not a show but an amazing documentary! Do yourself a favor and watch it if you love sports & derek jeter}

Last but not least:
Sex and the city.

Now, I know my title states religion and beliefs and that is what SATC is for me.
{No, this is really not what I consider my religion..well, maybe a little}

All six seasons are on this app! 
ALL SIX SEASONS people!

So, naturally my spare time has been devoted to this show and rewatching from the beginning! I can't help but fall in love with the show everytime I watch it.
I mean, Carrie & Big..hello!
But on a serious joking side this show really should be considered a religion and belief system for the following reasons:
1. It is about single women standing up for their beliefs in love, friendship, work, and obviously fashion.
2. They drink cosmos like they are water.
3. Carries wardrobe all 6 seasons: enough said.
4. Carries hair all 6 seasons.
5. Makes you feel that no matter what there is a Mr. Big for anyone!
6. Amazing quotes.

Ok, so those really aren't hard facts on why this show is so wonderful.
But, I consider all six seasons a bible in someway and sometimes a good sex and the city quote just really brightens my mood. 
It's such a classic tv show! 

I know this is a riveting post today {what do ya want from me!}
But, I just love me Carrie, Miranda, Samantha & Charlotte.

Have a fabulous day

A Warm Welcome!

Hellooo everybody!

It's Thursday and I've been on hold for appox. 13 minutes with Student Loan Services.
I've had my car towed to a mechanic shop
I have had two phone calls to set up job interviews.

Not. To. Shabby 
Minus the holding and getting car towed.

So, I suck as a friend and still have yet to post about Alicia's birthday extravaganza (botched that spelling) because well my camera cord was lost but don't worry it was found: in my car. 

So, that is just going to have to wait my friends! Check out her post today and it gives you all the highlights of such a wonderful drunken time celebration.

But don't you worry, I have fantastic news.
The bestie Gabby has started blogging again! 
yaaaaaaaaay.

She is sassy and comical {much like myself :)} and really is a gem!
She is blogging all about her move to Texas {still sad} and about her new journey and experiences.

So, all 59 of you {Oh so close to 60} go on over to Almost Texas and give this lovely lady some blog lovin. 
Pretty Please?
Her blog post about the moving process to Texas is pretty funny.
But, I'm slightly partial to her :)

Have a lovely Thursday everyone!

So, you're crazy?

So, today is Wednesday.
Cool..

Sorry that's all I got for an opener today.

I started off having a really good day yesterday {Tuesday} that went to straight shit and now I'm hoping today {Wednesday} will be much better.
Why am I telling you which day it is?
Well, because having Monday off has screwed me up and I have to keep reminding myself what day of the week it is.
sign of getting old.

I got an email from a reader of my blog the other day asking a very simple question that went a little something like this:
So, your blog says welcome to crazy town? Does that mean you are actually crazy?

I obviously laughed at first and then thought to myself, am I?
{I already knew the answer to this}

This kind person asked me why I chose this as my title, and then I started to think about it and why I did. 
Next thought was why had I never explained why I chose this as my title.

So, here you have my entertaining Wednesday post. 

I started blogging about a year ago and my life a year ago was just what my blog title states: crazy town.
I was going through changes in friends, learning how this whole thing called life  works.
I was in the middle of a back and fourth battle with insurance companies for my car wreck.
I was partying every single night. I mean every single night. It got to the point where by the time I walked into the bar the bartender had a drink waiting for me.
I failed a class.
I was blowing through all of my money and being stupid and immature. 
I would fight with my parents over the littlest things, and I never ever fight with my parents.

Don't get me wrong my life wasn't all sadness and darkness.
Really funny shit was happening to me to. 
You know the funny where all you do is laugh for hours until you cry.
I had the best of both worlds. 
I was single & ready to mingle.
I dated around, went on a few dates here and there and enjoyed it all.
Found out my best friend was moving to Texas. 


Crazy.

Typing it and maybe you evening reading it doesn't really sound all that crazy
But, for me it was.
For the first time I had zero control over how things were going.
It seemed like every time I would turn a corner a new adventure in life would pop up, and for the first time in my entire life I accepted each challenge. I may not have liked it, but I accepted it.
All 24 years of my life has consisted of the same people, same places, same habits, same everything.
I, for once, wasn't seeing the same faces, going to the same places, and not performing the same habits.
Guess crazy town made me taste a dose of medicine that I really wasn't ready to taste.
Welcome to crazy town might not be the best blog title but I enjoy it. 
It's a daily reminder of why I started blogging, why I chose to maybe take a different route in expressing myself. 

So, there you have it. Why my blog title is crazy town and what living a day in crazy town is like.
Phew. Shit just got personal. 

 I'm glad someone asked me what my blog title meant. It helped remind me of why I chose to label myself as crazy :)

Enjoy your day!

Love/Hate Relationship: Zumba Style.

Hello everyone!
How was everyone's long weekend?
Mine was delightful, thank you for asking.

I know you are all dying to know what I did!
Which is why I will tell you tomorrow in hopes I find my camera cord to download the pictures for it!
Whoops.

Moving on people..

Do ya'll have a love/hate relationship with thing(s)? I have a love/hate relationship with many things.
Like..
Chocolate {tastes oh so good but does nothing for my thighs!}
Shopping {Makes me feel oh so fab, but oh so broke}
Boys {No explanation needed}
The Cleveland Browns {Again, no explanation needed}

Ok, you get the point.
Let's talk about my strongest love/hate relationship..

dun..dun..dun..

ZUMBA.
{Your's truly did this dance last night and my legs were on fire after}

Why do I love it?
Because for 60 whole minutes I get to do nothing but pop, lock, and drop it and shake my money makaaa!
I get to jam with my homeboys Urrrsherrr {not to be confused with Usher}, David Guetta, Flo Rida.
You know, all of the greats.
I also love it because it really is a fantastic workout for days when you just don't really feel like working out. 
In a one hour Zumba class you can burn up to 650 calories!
650 calories to burn while just shakin' it?
Yes. Please.

Why do I hate it?
My entire body is throbbing today.
Not like an achey throb, oh no, a flat out my entire body is worked to the core.
My hips, abs, thighs, arms...all of it: ache.

That is what happens in a love/hate relationship! 
You love to hate it, and you hate to love it.

However, my sore little arse can't wait to go back on Wednesday!

What are you some of your love/hates? 

Have a fantastic one!

An entire night of hottness.

Ohh hiiiii there everyone.

I would like everyone to just take a moment and realize this girlfran hit 50 followers..

50 kids.

Whoop, whoop.

Ok, enough of that and moving on..

How was everyone's weekend? What did you do? Did you get to spend an entire night with nothing but gorg looking people?

Oh, no, you say? Because I sure did..

A couple of local columbus bloggers and I went to the Michael Stagliano concert here in Cbus.
Now, let me start off by saying the kid can carry a tune, but he ain't no Johnny Cash.
My ticket said he was going to play for two hours, he played for 40 minutes.
Rude.
I was just starting to get use to staring at his body in his tight jeans..I mean..his gorgeous smile.
All in all it was a fabulous night..

Checkk....Checckk it out.


Oh hi there Katie & Alicia


Uh huh, you guessed it that's Michael Stagliano from the Batchelorette. 
He is sexxxaayyy girlfriends.



I spy Holly too!


Why, yes Michael, I will have your babies.

Seriously, he is delicious. 
Too much?


I roll with some pretty beeechhhess..

It was such a fun night. Lots of laughing, dancing, rapping, and well of course drinking that went on that night! I mean besides seeing Michael's gorgeous face it was just a blast and a half. 

I'm sorry for such a picture heavy post but I really don't remember much {I blame the margs} to describe the night in words. 
All I gotta say is thank the heavens for cameras!

Happy Monday everyone!

Holly Jolly Swap!

Phew.

I'm so sorry this Holly Jolly Swap is running late but this girlfran had one hectic day.

I also am somehow blog challenged today and can't get the picture to save to my computer so you will have to look at everyone else's blog to see that lovely picture that is suppose to be here!

I'm so so so happy I participated in this swap! I hit the jackpot on who had me & was super jealous of the gifts that I got my secret santa. 

Ok..so I went back and bought the exact same things I bought her. 


Anywho, I had this lovely lady Steph and she is such a gem! 
She really stole my heart with my gift. I blogged about this once already because I was oh so excited but here are all the goodies she got me.
Yup..see those peanut butter m&m's. 
That's right best. secret. santa. ever.
I've already worn the bracelet and ring multiple times and got many many compliments on the gold shatter, and well my jeans just fit a tad tigther now due to the m&m's.
I'm not mad.

Close up.

But, seriously Steph did such a wonderful job! I read her blog almost everyday and think she is such a sweetheart.
So..go check her blog out..NOW I say!

I had Mary Kate as my person and I was super nervous that I would let her down and get her something she would hate. 
However, she sent me the sweetest email saying how much she liked it.
Like I said above I liked it so much I 
1. debated about keeping it for myself when I bought it and buying her something else {judge me}
2. I decided oh no its cute send it..then went straight to the store and bought myself the same exact scarf.

We are know matching bloggers :)

Thank you so much to Crystal, Emily, and Ashley for making this happen!

What all did you lovely ladies get?

Diamonds are a girls best friend.

Ok..so I don't actually own any diamonds.

However, today's Top 5 Tuesday with Rachel is jewelry pieces.
Just Peachy
Believe it or not this has been the hardest Top 5 for me because I wear a lot of different jewelry everyday and it is hard to pick favorites!

Sigh.


After a rather long process of elimination {yup, I did that} here is what my Top 5 pieces are...

From Top {Left to Right}
1. Michael Kors watch. 
Hands down my favorite thing that I own and I wear it everyday. Maybe I even talk to it sometimes when I look down at it, who knows.
It's an espresso color so it goes with a lot of different colors, which is one of the many reasons on why I love it. 
2. Tiffany's Silver Ball Bracelet.
This was my first rather expensive piece of jewelry that I owned. I got it as a gift from an ex back in the beginning of college. I mean it's still ok that I wear it?
3. My mother's first engagement ring.
My mom gave me this ring when I turned 13. My parents got married when they were practically babies {18 & 20} and this was all my dad could afford. It is simple and timeless {just like their love he says.}
It meant a lot to me that my mom gave it to me for my 13th birthday. I try not to wear it everyday because the diamond is slightly loose and I'm scared it will pop out!
Here is a close up:

4. My pink love bracelet.
I got this bad boy for 1.99 at Charlotte Russe and I wear it every single day!
It's just a simple bracelet but I'm obsessed with it.

5. White wrapped bracelent.
This is another Charlotte Russe steal for a whoppin 3.50! Holla!
I usually pair it with my love bracelet and my watch on the same hand.
It's simple and matches almost everything. I have it in black as well but the white one I wear errday.

Well now that you all now about my precious jewels link up with Rachel!

What are you favorite jewelry pieces?

Haaaaappyyy New Year!!!!!!

Hi my little bloggies!

How is 2012 workin' out for everyone so far?
If you follow me on twitter you have seen my sad complaining tweets of how sick I have been lately. 
Well I decided that after two weeks I should probably see a doctor, and of course she told me I had a double ear infection and sinus infection. 

Thanks, doc.

Anywho..what did you all do for New Years Eve?
I decided to just stay low key this year and hang out with my family and our closest family friends and to be honest I enjoyed it so much more than getting all dolled up, drinking my arse off, and scrambling the next morning to find all my belongings.

I mean had I felt 100% I would probably say otherwise but it was nice to ring in the New Year with family and family friends who have been in my life since I was a wee little thing!

If you also follow me on twitter you saw that I tweetd this picture of what I wore..

However, this is what I really end up wearing..

{Me and my brothers girlfriend, Jill}

The sparkly tank that was rather itchy didn't seem like something I wanted to deal with for five hours..so I went for comfort over cutenes..sign #3098234 I'm getting old.

The rest of my New Years went like this..
{My little cousin Jackson facetimed with me at midnight to wish my Happy New Year}
{Ringin' in 2012 with my brother and Jill}

I'm really excited about 2012 and have a lot that I want to accomplish already!

First, I would like to accomplish winning this wonderful giveaway that Elena is giving way to start the New Year! I suggest you check it out!

What are some of your guys resolutions?!
