Mudfest 2010

Welp, we knew Rockfest was going to be interesting this year because of all the rain we've been getting. We knew it was going to be a muddy mess, hence the rain boots purchase. What we didn't totally prepare for was the drizzly rainy 50 degree weather to go along with the mud. So, it kind of sucked.... BUT, we made the best of it and had a good time laughing at all the tweekers and drunk @sses falling all over themselves in the mud. Good Times!

I got to see the one band I was really pumped for - HALESTORM!

I have a girl crush on Lzzy Hale and she did NOT let me down with the hotness either!! Her brother RJ (who is the drummer) was pretty freaking yummy too.

The rain was going as soon as we got there, but it let up off and on throughout the afternoon. My rain boots were the best thing ever invented and worth every penny of the $17 I spent on them! I wasn't slipping and sliding in the muddy mess like every other flip-flop wearing tard out there. You wouldn't believe all the barefoot people...D.U.M. Dumb...

Large group activities like these are never without drama and we had our share. It was all centered around ONE person this time though, one girl's mom was waiting at the gate for us at 9:30 AM (doesn't even open till 11) for her ticket which was with us. We didn't plan on going until 1. First of all, I don't see where it is our responsibility to change all our plans because she decides to get there that early. We couldn't go any earlier of course because we had j and couldn't (wouldn't) change our babysitting arrangements. Secondly, her mom got TRASHED and was ANNOYING AS HELL, yelling and whooping and hollering at everyone and being completely obnoxious until she passed out by a tree. It was embarrassing. I was super annoyed and trying really hard not to be a bitch about it. (I just want to take this time to say THANK YOU to my mother for being an ADULT and responsible and not a pathetic drunk-butt. Love you momma). We spent the rest of the time by the tree with her passed out drunk mom. Then she wanted to bring her mom back to my house. I hate to admit it but I was a total B**** and looked at her like she was crazy and rude for asking. I can't help it. I didn't want her drunk mud covered dramatic pukey @ss at my house. I told her that that was fine while secretly thinking to myself I would just make her stay in the garage. I mean, WHERE IN THE HELL WERE THE PEOPLE THAT BROUGHT HER TO THE CONCERT??!?!?!!!! They were there somewhere, why weren't they babysitting her stupid butt. Why is it her daughter's responsibility or the ENTIRE group's for that matter. Ugh - ok venting over :)

After about 4 or 5 hours, we all decided that if it started raining again, we would go ahead and get outta there and 5 minutes later... it started raining. That was a good enough sign for us! We had already sent the drunken mess to the gates with her daughter to get her loaded up in a taxi to get her home (thank goodness) so we just told her to stay at the gate and we'd meet her up there. We got a taxi van driver to let us all pile into one instead of having to call another one (the middle seats are removed from the vans, in case you were wondering). We all made it home without someone plowing into us and knocking us into the mud. It was amazing to say the least.

All in all, I'm glad we went. It was pretty hilarious to watch everyone fall. If it had been 15 - 20 degrees warmer it may even have been a blast with the mud.... Oh well. J has already said, next year better be an amazing line up for us to even consider going. I would have to agree with him after this year.

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.…
