Bride hijacking & Penis Cookies.

Interesting title, eh?

I warn you now: if you follow me on instagram or twitter, you will be bored with this post.

There might be a thing or two some of you don't know about me and that is this: i'm hardly ever serious & like to have a good time.

My dear, sweet, loving friend Natasha is getting married in roughly 9 days and she one day decided to get extremely wasted and ask me to be one of her bridesmaids.
Ok, well she wasn't actually drunk. But, homegirl over here can not keep a straight face for longer than 2 minutes so why she thinks I will be able to walk down that aisle and not laugh or be able to look straight ahead is beyond me. 
Anyway, neither here nor there.
The wedding was rapidly approaching and I had realized one small minor detail. No one had contacted me about a batchelorette party!!
The hardly ever being serious trait kicks in and I thought to myself: "Well this is bullshit, I won't get to parade around drinking out of a penis straw and yell inapproriate things at hot men!"
So, I did what you would do.
Took matters into my own hands.

A couple of girls Natasha & I work with decided we should throw her a surprise dinner.
I mean it is perfect! Not only would there be penis straws, penis confetti, streamers, balloons, and any other inapproriate item you could think of..it would all be a surprise. 

So, I made up a bullet proof lie and convinced Natasha it was just her and I having a lovely dinner talking flowers, cake, and blah blah blah..

Then, this happened.

i made her wear a blindfold.

then, made her wear this ridic gear and drink out of a penis straw.

so prec.

Me & the bride to be!


..and i of course took a picture with the penis cookie.

But, seriously. It was so much fun! Natasha had no idea which made it much more special and rewarding to see the look on her face when I took the scarf off and she saw all the girls from work sitting at the table.
Needles to say, I can not wait for her wedding.

To my dear sweet Natasha- I love you beyond words. I'm glad work brought us together and THANK YOU for everything you have done for me these past few weeks. Between planning a wedding, moving, and listening to my bitch ass I'm not really sure how you did it :)
You will be a beautiful bride, and I wish you and Jordan a lifetime of love and happiness.

back to the basics.


It has been a hot second since this girl has stepped foot in the blogging world, and I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the break.
However, I missed those few connections/relationships I have made through blogging and missed seeing what was going on in their lives!

I'm back, for good. 
By that I mean to my usual 3 {if you are lucky} 4 posts a week.

I know I got all sad, dark, and sappy for a second and complained about how terrible my life and how I hated boys and blah...blah..blah..

But, I got a friendly reminder from my father:
that is life & shit happens.

My dad and I are the exact same person almost, it is actually kind of scary. I look like him, I can drink like him, I cuss like a sailor like him, my sense of humor is the same as his, my independence is the same as him. So, to say we have "life chats" is a stretch because we tend to disagree a lot because we are the same person. 
However, those rare {and i mean rare} moments when I let my guard down we do have them and when I was whining on about a pathetic boy who broke my heart, how I didn't have a full time job, and how I felt very confused about some family issues, he simply said it best.
"Kels, get back to the basics and fix what you dont like."
At first when I heard "back to the basics" I instantly thought of hits off of Christina Aguilera's album and quickly realized that is not what he was referring too.

It all made sense.
Go back to the things that made me feel free, the things that made me, me.
He said, "I haven't heard the last time you mentioned your blog, or the last time I saw you go for a long run, or hell, the last time you went to the mall {Told ya, I had issues.}

I have a great life. I'm healthy, I have a family who loves and supports me, wonderful friends who keep my heart happy, and a job that I adore. 
Fixing me and doing what I know to make me happy is the only thing I can control in life, it's the only thing all of us can control.

So, this is me getting back to the basics and doing what I love because I love it. 
Not doing something because it's what he loved, or what they loved, or what anyone loves.

I've missed blogging 3-4 times a week, even though I usually blog about nothing, I've missed going on those runs and crankin' up the tunes and clearing my mind, and trust me I've missed the mall.
Now is the fun part in figuring out what I want in this next "step" of life, who I am as an independent person, and what I want to fix about me. 
You know, back to the basics.
There are a lot of things I can't control in life right now that I pray to God that I could, but this is one thing I can, so I'm runnin' full speed with it.

I encourage all of you to step back and think about the same thing.
Do you need to get back to the basics?

I've missed you all.

Some things I love.

Happy Thursday!

I am currently sitting on my porch and my weather app is telling me it is 88 degrees in Columbus.
Not too shabby.

I have not done a post about the things I love lately, so here I go.

sitting out on the porch & blogging.
I'm sorry but it doesn't get any better.

drinking one large iced tea out of my new tervis tumbler that has a nice bright pink "K."

my new iphone case. 
two words: bad ass.

Yes, I know those are only three things and I'm in all of the pictures.
Don't care :)

Enjoy this day.
