Anniversary Fail.

So I totally sucked balls for J & I's first anniversary. I've been so busy with stupid work that I didn't have time to go buy a card, let alone a gift. I started trying to figure something out to do/get for him about 5 days before our anna - so that pretty much left out even ordering something off the net. I didn't have anyone to write on my butt/take a picture to send to him... AND to top all that awesome-girlfriend-of-the-year-award-nominating thoughtfulness, I had to work late. I mean REALLY late - like I didn't get home till 11:30. FAIL.

HE on the other hand, came all the way up to my work and took me to lunch, got me a p.e.r.f.e.c.t., sweet, lovey dovey, mushy card, and bought me a SUPER cute blue and brown photo album...

Ugh. I disgust myself.

BUT, I made up for it last night. I told J I would make him whatever dinner he wanted. At first he said Prime Rib (which made me a little nervous), but then he suggested Filet Mignon, asparagus and baked potatoes. And that's exactly what I made him. I even went to HEN HOUSE to get the steaks, bacon, asparagus, & baked potatoes. We even tried out this little mozerella-proscutto roll thingy for an appetizer. I cooked the steaks wrapped in thick cut bacon out on the grill and it was all ready for him when he got home along with me in my cute cherry apron (and nothing else). So even though I pretty much screwed up our entire 1st anniversary, I think I totally ROCKED the first day of our second year together!!

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…
