Never too busy for hump day

Well to say that I've been busy the past couple of days is an UNDERSTATEMENT.
But thankfully, I LOVE my job and when you LOVE your job, it's not really work...but more of a fun hobby!
Oh life, how funny you are.

But even with all the craziness of this week I'm never too busy to link up with my favorites!
Come play with me Jamie and Michelle!
You know you wanna!

{I'm Loving} My job! (did I already mention that? hmm)
Not to toot my own horn toot toot but I probably have the coolest job on the planet right now. 
I'm doing social media for a small movie production company, which brings me to my next love...

{I'm Loving} that I get to go to Austin TX for Fantastic Fest which in all reality is not my cup of tea, but I'm SO excited to be attending a film festival! I'll be equipped with my own VIP badge and everything. 
Look who's growing up?!
I'll be in attendance Sept 24-30 which means I'll be MIA from here for a week. However, for all of you who will miss me so so much har har har you can follow me over at The Julia X 3D official blog where I'll be updating daily! 

{I'm Loving} That I have something fun to do EVERY WEEKEND in the month of October.  A lot of which centers around football (the way the month of October should be spent).  So this blog is about to get a LOT more interesting!
You're welcome.

{I'm Loving} these boys...

{I'm Loving} these pictures and quotes I've pinned on Pinterest...duh 

I can empathize with this little puggy.


I want this in my closet, like, yesterday.

It's the 'what ifs' that make life so exciting.


gotta love auto-correct.

Amen, Steve, Amen.

I hope you all are having a great Wednesday!

All my love!

Monday randoms

Today I'm linking up for the first time with lowercase letters for Miscellany Monday...because you can never have too many things to link up to!
1. My weekend was consumed by football. The way it should be consumed.
On Saturday, I went with the 'rents to the Louisiana Tech vs. University of Houston game down in Ruston, LA.  It was an overall fun game even though Tech lost and the weather was amazing!! 

Sunday was spent napping in between football games.  It finally rained after a bazillion days and the sound of thunder lulled me to sleep like a newborn baby child.

2. I am SO excited for this weekend.  I'm going to be headed down to Austin TX for Fantasy Fest to promote this little project!  I'm so nervous because I have no idea what to expect but I'm so excited!

3. I'm getting my nails done on Thursday...stay tuned for something ridiculous there I'm sure.  And if you have no idea what I'm talking about please reference this and this.

4. I really can't stand Lady Gaga, and if you love her and I've offended you I'm truly sorry.  But she's just too much.

5. I'm excited that TV is finally new again! I'm so excited for the premieres of all my favorites.

6. I'm trying to think of more random things, but I've run out.

7. I'll leave you with a quote I of course found on pinterest!

I hope you all are having a fantastic Monday!!

Lets fill some blanks

Hey there friends!! 
In case you haven't heard it's FRIDAYYY!!! 
My first work week is in the books and I've loved every minute of it! 
So blessed I tell ya, so blessed!!
Now it's time to link up with Lauren @The little things we do for...
1.   You should always take time to listen.  Sometimes it's good to just sit back and hear what others have to say, whether you take their word to heart or not, at least you've heard their peace. 

2.  Laughter make(s) the world a happier place to be.

3.  I can hardly wait for October!! SO many fun things to do EVERY WEEKEND that month!!

4.  Saturday is my favorite day of the week.

5.  Something totally dumb and ridiculous that I love is learning dances to ridiculous rap songs... insert the bernie, womp, wobble, soldja boy...and countless others.

6.  If I could, I would adopt every puppy at the pound.  I can honestly see myself as an old dog lady (like a cat lady but with cooler, right?!) living on a large piece of land with 100 dogs just running around! haha

7.  I rather like my life! Things are falling into place just perfectly. If God brings you to it, he'll bring you through it! 

So now it's time for a little self promotion:
My new job entails social media marketing for a small movie production company (awesome, right?!) and I would love you to pieces if you could go to our Facebook Page and 'like' it...and for all of you twitter heads out there Follow Us!!
You should aslo probably visit the Movie Blog!
I update all three of these things daily with awesome news about film festivals and other fun things!

Okay...enough about that...
I hope you all have a fantastic Friday and a great weekend!! 
The weather is finally cooling get outside and enjoy it if you can!!

All my love!

the one where my imaginary boyfriend beat me...

So it's Thursday and for some reason in my mind I'm still living it up like it's labor day weekend.
With that being said, I'm going to forgo the weekend recap and move on to today's shenanigans because honestly life has become a reality tv show. 
Just know that this weekend was a total blur of:
-a high school football game where some parent may or may not have called us out on sneaking in whiskey...and then asked for a drink.
*Lakeside GO RAMS!*
-the blues festival in downtown Hot Springs where meg and I were the only people under the age of 40
-the lake... all day erry day
-a boat full of gay men who I repeatedly told "I love your water panties!"
-beer...lots and lots of beer

and.... these...
Yes ya'll...these are my legs.
Yes ya'll... these are horrible bruises on my legs.
Now before you excuse yourself from your computer because of my hideous deformation please know that I could enter the Guinness Book of World Records for 'easiest bruiser on the planet'...seriously.
Buuuut after a weekend on the lake and living like there's no tomorrow, this is what happens to me.

With all of this being said...I bring you the events of today.
It is known if you've read my blog lately that I frequent a nail salon of some of the most forward Vietnamese people I have ever come in contact with.  If you have no idea PLEASE refer to this post so you're all caught up.

So I go into the nail salon today because lets be honest...if my legs are lookin that big of a mess you can only imagine how my nails are doing... and my usual peeps Andy and Sandy greet me at the door.
I'm wearing pants because I don't want to terrify small children so when I go to get my pedi I sit in the chair and roll up my pants leg... and the story goes a little something like this:

Sandy (Pointing at my legs and gasping so everyone in the place stares at me): Ohhh No!! What happen!!
Me: Oh you know, a weekend of fun on the lake.  I bruise easy it's okay.
Sandy: Andy!! Come look! Look her leg!! Boyfriend beat her!!
Me: Oh NO NO that's not what happened at ALL... 
Andy (completely cutting me of): Ohhh now I see why you have no boyfriend... he beat you, you leave him...yayyy! (clapping his hands)
Me: No... No boyfriend did this... No one did this! I was on the lake all weekend! I bruise easy....
Andy and Sandy: *Talking to eachother in Vietnamese language completely ignoring me*
Me: I just have to be more careful next time (trying to laugh it off and move the heck on with my pedicure)
Andy(walking away): You be more careful, get better boyfriend next time be more careful.
Me:........ Yeah so, I'll have the pink on my toes....

So now not only do I not have a boyfriend... I have an imaginary boyfriend that beats me...on the shins and nowhere else.

I would really stop going to this nail place...but seriously I walk out with stories of gold every time.  
They're like crack with their crazy.

All in all I had an awesome Labor day holiday and a story filled mani/pedi today!

Fill in the blank Friday!

So I'm off on another weekend adventure with my bests in good 'ol Hot Springs! 
I can't wait to lake it up, have a few cold ones, and reminisce on good times! I also just made a KILLER playlist of awesome oldies that will for sure be shouted from the boat deck!
I. Can't. Wait.

But before I go... You know I have to link up with Lauren @ the little things we do for 
1.   One thing that is completely superfluous, but that I could never give up is reality TV.  It's a sad sad thing for me to admit, but I am hooked and I don't remember what life was like before it....embarrassing.

2.  Pretty much me in my everyday life... makes me feel awkward.

3.  I can't leave the house without, my cell phone.

4.  Greek Yogurt  is my favorite snack.

5.  Lately I've been very motivated! The end of this year is going to be amazing...I can just feel it!

6.  If at first you don't succeed pray about it because God has a reason! 

7.  Fall is football, boots, scarves, and the return of ..... PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE!!! 

I hope you all have a great Labor Day weekend! 
Enjoy the end of the summer because before long it'll be freezing and we'll be wishing we had it back! 

100th post & 6 month Bloggaversary!!

Today is my 100th blog post!!
Say Whaaaaaaaaat?!

It's also my 6 month blog-aversary!
I'm a little OCD so I LOOOVE that it worked out this way without me planning it...haaa!

I can't believe it.
I spent some time last night looking back at different posts from the last 6 months and I can't believe how intensely things have changed in my life in such a short amount of time.
When I started this blog I was constantly stressed about getting my Masters Degree, missing my long distance boyfriend, and wondering what the future held for me.

Well, I got that degree, lost the boyfriend, and have a pretty good idea of what the future will entail.  No matter how much we worry or stress, life goes on and things will work out how they're ment to work out. We may not see it that way at the time, but in hindsight they always do.

It's funny how much life can change in an instant.  But with all of the highest of highs and the lowest of  lows in the past 6 months, I have to say that I know God has a plan for me and that I wouldn't change any of it.  I am still a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and that the best days are yet to come, so I'm holding strong and marching on and I can't wait to see what craziness lies ahead in the next 6 months!!

Love ya'll!
