{1} of the THIRTY

Twenty Randoms:
1. I'm technically an only child but I have 4 siblings.
2. I really want to go to Cosmo school and be a hair/nail stylist
3. I am afraid of suffocating. Sometimes when I'm dozing off to sleep, I convince myself that I'm not breathing, completely panic, and wake myself up...over and over and I keep myself from sleeping.
4. I love that I inherited my mom's artsy-craftsy side. I love doing and I'm not too shabby at it either.
5. I hate being called dramatic. Just because dramatic things happen to me, does not make me a Drama Queen.
6. I have eaten iguana.
7. I was in Honors English in college - had no idea I was even really that good at English in HS, but now consider myself somewhat of a Grammar Nazi. Poor Grammar drives me batty.
8. I LOVE to sing karaoke. I'm a rock star.
9. I am super girly. I love shopping, spa/salon days, high heels, pink, glitter, big sunglasses...all. things. girly.
10. It embarrasses me that I have been married twice. I really dislike that about myself and it makes me feel trashy.
11. I get along better with men than I do women (despite my love of all things girly, girls are too mean)
12. I'm kind of a hot mess but I'm pretty good at hiding it [most days]
13. I'm an accountant but I'm really not that great with money. Go figure.
14. I love yoga. I'm getting pretty good at a few of the semi-advanced poses. If my wrists weren't so weak, I'd be a yoga rock star.
15. Being a mom is the greatest thing I have ever done in my life. I love my son more than anyone or anything in this world. I would do anything for him, sacrifice anything, just to make sure he's happy. I'm one of those mom's who 100% believes my child is perfect, the cutest kid alive, and could easily be super famous and super rich someday. [I don't, however believe my child can do no wrong - he's an ornery little stinker]
16. I am my own biggest critic. I am a very harsh critic but only of myself. For everyone else, I usually only see the good in people, somewhat to a fault.
17. I'm Irish [great grandmother was Irish] and I just found this out like a year ago. I'm extra upset about all the St. Patty's Day celebrating I did not do and the "Kiss My I'm Irish" t-shirts I do not own. This is a big deal to me people, I think its pretty awesome that I'm Irish.
18. I feel completely out of the loop all the time with my family (ie see above) both my mom and most definitely my dad's side [they are a MESS so I can't blame myself too much on that one], and really everything in my life. I don't know if its because I'm a total space cadet and don't pay attention, or I'm just not inquisitive enough, but I am in the dark on a lot and there's a ton of questions I have no clue the answer to. I want to make sure my kids always ask questions and are interested in who they are and what's going on around them.
19. I want to be bilingual  I always wanted to learn French but I think I'm going to learn Spanish instead since it will be so much more useful in my day to day life.
20. When I'm disappointed about something I usually don't have the heart to tell someone because I don't want to hurt their feelings.

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 …

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.…

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 …
