{5} of THIRTY

5. What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?

1. Brazos. The one thing guaranteed to make me happy [no matter my mood] is my little love. When he grabs my face with his little hands, looks me in the eye, and says "I Luh You Mommy" - I don't think there is any greater happiness in this world! He is my sunshine and I always tell him so :o}
2. Running & Yoga. I'd have keeled over from shock if my 20 year old self was reading this, but I do. I love it - although at the moment I'm not able to do it. During the run, its the BEST stress relief. After a run, its the greatest feeling of accomplishment. I can't wait till the baby's born and I can start my running again! And I absolutely love the self control of Yoga. I'm still able to do that for the most part although not nearly as much as I'd like. Such a great happy place to be mentally when you are in the middle of a yoga stretch.
3. Being crafty. I love painting, scrapping or any kind of creative outlet really. This has always been a happy thing of mine. I really need to devote more time to doing these types of things...instead of just Pinteresting a wishlist of to-dos.
4. Spending time with my friends and family. I don't get to do this nearly enough so when I do, it feels like a special occasion no matter what we are doing. I have some great people in my life that I don't get to be around much - I just need to make more of an effort to do this! Unfortunately, money typically gets in the way of that. Stupid money.
5. Karaoke. I love to go out and sing karaoke and I never get tired of it. I don't know that I'm that great of a singer, but it still make me happy to get up there and pretend that I am a rockstar! Ha!

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 …
