It's A-okay

Tomorrow is Friday :) EEK!
I am so glad it is thursday because I have so many fun things planned for this
weekend! Rescheduled girls night tonight! Mexican food...yeah gotta find a cheese-less
option, DO NOT get me started! it pisses me of just thinking about it
Then a night out with my favorites! Perfection.

Yesterday was a busy day! I had to sub in the morning then many errands.
 OOTD- Sweater- Charlotte Russe, Pants- Target

made a fabulously healthy lunch & cleaned my kitchen

Chicken & Spinach Tacos. BTW I found this buffalo Ranch LIGHT that
is only 60 cals for 2 TBS!!

then...a nap.

Well then I did a lot, and by a lot i mean almost a month worth of laundry
at my friend Jessicas & watched Duck Dynasty. I am so obsessed. It's sick.
My fave quote of the night...

"I am going to need your man card and you need to shave your face"- Jase.
I LOVE JASE. He is so sarcastic, i literally cannot help but be attracted to him.
i need counseling. 

Anywhoos I am linking up with Amber for
It's Okay Thursday

It's A-OKAY...

..that I am way too excited for girls night tonight. I have had my outfit picked
out already, like since last week.

..that my milk went bad 5 days ago and it is STILL sitting in my fridge.

..even though I had not done laundry in almost a month I still had PLENTY
of undies to last at least another 2 or so weeks.

..that i rearranged my apartment two days ago but I don't know if 
I like it so I might change it back.

..that i have zero posts planned at all. I kinda feel like I am in a rut 
with blog posts, HENCE the lack of post yesterday.

..I LOVE going to the dollar store.

..that i severely hate shaving my legs & getting to wear pants
so i don't have to shave is the best part of winter.
*i am gross*

alrighty i better get my day started!
hope you have a FABULOUS thursday :)


Its Ok Thursdays

Alrighty I wanted to share with you two things today--

My Cara Box. Do you guys do this?
if not you totally should. It is an amazing swap 
that Miss Kaitlyn does each month.
Basically you get paired up with two fabulous ladies. One sends to you
and you send to the other lady

I was paired to send to Kate who has not gotten her
box yet because of that stupid storm stopped me from getting to the post office on time
It is the mail i promise!! and I hope you love everything.
The fab lady who sent me presents was Jen
and let me tell you she DID AMAZING!! This girl got me!

-Candles. They are the perfect colors for my living room & one in my bedroom
-Romance Book. UH hello sexy cowboy. We all know how much i love a cowboy!
-Altoids, girlfran gotta have great breath!

Thank you so much Jen, i loved everything :)

 Just drinking my wine during The Bachelor!

alrighty onto the next thing

I was nominated again for a Liebster Award. Check out the other times i was
nominated here and here.
This time i was nominated by the lovely Blake. I really like her blog & I cannot wait 
to get to know her more!
Now since I already won this award I won't be handing them out to anyone
BUT i will answer her questions that she so wonderfully put together.

  1. Do you have tattoos? If so, what is your latest one? If not, would you ever get one? What would it be? Yes i do have one! I have the breast cancer ribbon on my left foot. I got it for my cousin who passed away in May 2008.
  2. Would you rather cut your hair to the tops of your ears or not shave your legs for six months? NOT shave. I mean if i could, i totally would. WHO likes shaving??
  3. What is your favorite month of the year? OOH this is hard. I want to say July because it's my bday month. But I think I am going to pick April. I love spring SO MUCH!
  4. If you could only drink water and one other liquid for the rest of your life, what other drink would you choose? Wine. obvi.
  5. What is one of your goals you hope to achieve by 2014? Have my own classroom, keep those fingers crossed!
  6. What is a TV show that your parents didn’t let you watch when you were little, but you watched it anyway behind their backs? hmmm i didn't really have any TV shows I couldn't watch..well i wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons, but i had/have no desire to watch i.
  7. What does your dream house look like? Oh good lord, i have way too many idea--- here are a few ideas..

    All these pins can be found here on my Dream Home Board

    8. If someone paid you ten dollars every day you left the house without any makeup on, how many days would you go out without makeup?As many as needed probs.. I honestly might get used to it. 
    9. Tell us a story about how you embarrassed yourself in front of your crush in high school. If you don’t have one to tell, describe what would have been the most embarrassing thing to happen. Is it weird I don't remember? I do embarassing things on the daily so I really cannot think of any..
    10.  If your job asked you to relocate to the middle of nowhere, would you happily go? Happily? Maybe not, depending on where and honestly how much I was getting paid, I'd do it.  
    11. What is your favorite thing about the summer season? Oh geez, my bday :) 

    Here is to this snow getting outta here!!

Weekend Recap

Oh another weekend has come and gone.
too quick of course!
Oh hey, monday....didn't miss ya.
The only thing I am happy about is the bachelor is on mondays,
THE ONLY thing.

alrighty what would a monday be without a little weekend recap?
not a monday blog post that's fa sho.

Friday the ladies & I hit the town! It was great to be out with all my friends.
We met up at my friend toni's loft and played before downtown started calling our
names. Incase you were unsure,
 Friday was national margarita day.

Needless to say we participated...a lot. Lots of dancing & laughing.
we headed out to the local piano bar for a lovely girls night.
My fave way to spend a friday!

prom pose? haha

Saturday...well there was a lot of recovering. A lot of sleeping & watching bravo.
oh and a few advil & gatorades.

I did pull my life together enough to go tan. YES this ginger will be tan!
pale is SO not working on me anymore. Then saturday night I met up with some
girls I used to work with for sushi. YUMMM. We went to my fave place
and got lots of sushi. It was beyond good. We ended up back at my friend Jessika's
and played  a little Mad Gab. Wild, i knoow. 
I am not a champion mad gab case you were wondering.

OOTN- Big hair Don't care.

Sunday was filled with lounging, dishes and TLC. Pretty lame?
I am okay with it. I didn't even get outta my pjs. Do not care.

oh and i didn't watch a lot the Oscars. I popped in a few times, but I am just
not interested. I probs the only one.
however, i do love me some christopher plummer & daniel radcliffe.

I am getting ready to start applying for big girl jobs & i am scarrrred.
I want a full time teaching position SO BAD! Gah, I cannot even explain it.
So keep your fingers crossed i am able to find a teaching position for this next school year.
I swear I am going to be a good one.

Pit & Peak

Another snow day for meee :)
happy friday!

Even though we barely got any snow, just a lot of ice. OBNOXIOUS.
I know back home..STL got pounded. At least 6 inches of snow evidently.
however all schools around here were canceled for the most part.
I did not sleep in...well OKAY i did til sleep in til about 8. I am fine with that.

I am gonna head out to the gym & tan here in a bit.
Gotta be productive & get skinnnnay!
But before i do I wanna link up for Pit & Peak
with two of my favies!


Pit-Worst Part of the Week.
Peal- Best Part of the Week.

Let's do that bad stuff first, gotta get it out of the way.

* the snow/ice storm. While yes it has given me snow days it ruined my girls night out 
last night & we had to reschedule it for next week! I was SO looking forward do it.

*i have been feeling really down on my bod lately. YES i know I am the only one who
can fix it. I eat healthy. I really do. I watch what I eat and limit the bad stuff.
but the gym & I have not been BFF's like we need to be. I want to be fit
and let's face skinnnnay. I want to feel better about myself. I NEED to be more motivated
someone keep me responsible to myself...gah.
I am so jelly of Miss Marcy and everything she has done. I neeeed her dedications

alrighty MOVING ON...


* the snow storm. I did like sleeping in yesterday. I was suppose to sub
but waking up at 6 and seeing school was canceled which meant rolling over and going
back to sleep!? pretty fab.
here a few snow day pics

Just some barefoot :)

the veggies chips I actually like!

See mostly ice and bare trees.

Selfie of me mysteriously looking out the by the window.
i am lame. But hey for not brushing my hurrr all day it looks okay.
and i am pale SICK.

on to more peaks..

*I have actually kept track of some OOTD as of lately.
These are all from teaching days, because let's face it
if i am not teaching I am not putting on button pants...maybe that is why i am single??

Shirt: F21 Scarf: Express Jeans: Seven for all Mankind
Sweater/Scarf: Express Pants: Target (old)
Cardi- Rue21 Pants: Target (old) Necklace: Charlotte Russe

*HOPEFULLY roads cleared up so I can make it out tonight!

An Ice Storm & A Stephanie

Oh hello thursday!
Subbing got called off!! This lady is going back to bed!
but this weather BLOWS! I hate ice. I hate snow. I hate cold.
i could go on, but I won't.
I want 75 degree days with sun & puffy clouds that i can pretend are silly pictures.
but alas that is now what  Missouri had given me.
but before i watch  killer blizzard 13
*that name is probs gonna take off any second*
I cannot wait to introduce you to somone!
Now stephanie is one of my all time faves! I cannot remember exactly how i met
her but we are pretty much BFFs. She has one of my fave blogs
& always has great posts! One of my must reads!
 We text basically everyday & she only lives like 45 min
from my hometown! She is a wonderful listener and always know what
to say to cheer me up! She was actually my valentine this year!
Well I was so excited when she agreed to guest post for me
so take it away sister
Hey guys!!! I'm Stephanie from The Not So Fairytale Life!
I blog about my dog a lot...and our adventures...and our life...that is totally not a fairytale.
You should come check us out!

Anywhoooo, I'm over here to answer some questions that the lovely Sarah had for me!

What is your favorite article of clothing and why?

I have two faves. 

1. Sweatpants. because, let's be real. I LOVE being comfy/lazy...especially after working all day.

2. Scarves. Easiest way to accessorize and they are super cute!

What is your favorite thing to do on your days off? 
Snuggling up with Walter and watching TV, or if it's nice out, taking him to the park.

If you were a shoe what would you be and why?
A cute flat, because you can either dress up or dress down with a flat. They are very versatile.
Who/what inspires you?
My younger brother. He's in the army and currently deployed to Afghanistan. Also, my 2 year old nephew. He's about the coolest kid I know.

How did you pick your blog name?
Honestly, it came to me a dream. Weird, yes. But I dreamt one night that I should change my blog name and that was the name in my dream. So, when I woke up, I changed it to The Not So Fairytale Life. :)

Who is your biggest celebrity crush?
Ughhh, this is so hard. I have a lot for different reason. I don't think I can narrow it down to just one. Sooo Zac Efron and Gerard Butler. 

I mean...seriously...YUMMY!!

Wooo, that was funnnn!!!
Don't forget to stop on by and check us pup and I can be fun sometimes. 

Don't forget to check out WALTER'S PROJECT!
uhh gerard get your 'but'ler on top of me.
too graphic?
isn't she great! Now get your butt over there and show her some love.

eeeks tomorrow is FRIDAY!
