Keep calm....

It's Tuesday yet it feels like a Monday. I have some pretty tough stuff going on in my life right now...so, if you don't see a blog from me for a couple of days, its not because I don't love y'all...I just need to focus my energy elsewhere. I found some inspiratoinal quotes and sayings that I feel we all could use...

It's Friday, It's Pay Day, It's a 3 day weekend...this makes me happy!

I feel like I haven't blogged much this week...so here goes a bunch of random thoughts that don't make any sense. Your welcome.

I love the bachelor/bachelorette. I admit it...I love watching these people fall "in love", with millions of viewers watching and analyzing their every move, I love the drama, I love the fairy tale dates, I love thinking and hoping that whoever they pick they really are going to stay together. With this being said, I had NO intentions on getting sucked into another installment of the bachelorette. I wasn't a huge fan of Ashley when she was on Brad's season, I just didn't want to watch her. Then it happened. I was flipping through channels and happened to see the guys stepping out of the limo and next thing I knew I was suckered in to yet another season of red roses. Which by the way, ABC can you please select another color. Pink maybe? I am so tired of red roses.

My thoughts on this season. First of all Bentley is only a good name for a dog, if I do say so myself...since I have a dog named Bentley and all. This Bentley that is on the show acts like a dog, actually worse than a dog, he is a complete douche. Can I say douche? Sure I can...it's my blog. He's not cute either. He's a douchey , no cute, jerk. I have no idea why she kept him. I don't have a favorite yet...when I do...y'all will be the first to know.

The end of an era happened. Oprah is over. I finally watched her last episode last night. OMG...I balled like a freakin baby. That lady knows how to speak to people. I felt like everything she was saying was exactly what I needed to hear. I was having a blah day yesterday and she made it better. I am saving that episode on my DVR for as long as it will let me, just so I can watch it whenever I need a pep talk. 

Speaking of DVR...my cable provided recently changed the way my DVR works and I am not happy about it. I can't find any of my shows. I know they are there, it tells me...I just can't find them. GRRR.

It's lake season and our boat's not ready. Insert major sad face.

Really though, that's ok...because it's lake season and I am not lake season body ready...yet.

Ask me how many times I have ran lately?Ya...not so much. I have a 5k I am supposed to be running in July in SAN FRANCISCO. I should probably get on this.

Just like every other girl and blogger out there...I too want Carrie's legs. I have decided that in order to get these legs, I need to never eat anything good and work out like a maniac and get a really good spray tan.

I think that is all for now...I will leave you with this quote from Michelle Obama about relationships, I stumbled upon it from another blog. It was so good I had to share it with y'all.

Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, Who are you as a person? That’s the advice I would give to women: Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul. Look at how the guy treats his mother and what he says about women. How he acts with children he doesn’t know. And, more important, how does he treat you? When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good. You should never feel less than. You should never doubt yourself. You shouldn’t be in a relationship with somebody who doesn’t make you completely happy and make you feel whole. And if you’re in that relationship and you’re dating, then my advice is, don’t get married. Get out of it and find that person that brings you complete and utter joy with who you are at the moment.

Happy Friday and weekend y'all.

All I really need to know...

Recently baby brother graduated high school...holla!! I barely cried. So proud of myself. He was of course as handsome as ever in his cap and gown. One thing that stood out to me...besides watching baby brother walk across the stage, was one of the graduation speeches. I am 26, I have graduated high school and college and have heard my fair share of some really motivating, encouraging, go get em' grad speeches. Do I remember any of them? Nope. Not a single one. I am sure they all sounded great at the time.

As this girl was standing at the podium reading her speech, I found myself nodding at everything she was saying. It was genius. Everything she was talking about is so true, and I thought to myself..."I need to be living my life according to these rules...and so should everyone else for that matter." The speech she was reading...well, here it is.

All I really need to know, I learned in Kindergarten
by Robert Fulghum

most of what I really need
To know about how to live
And what to do and how to be
I learned in kindergarten.
Wisdom was not at the top
Of the graduate school mountain,
But there in the sand pile at Sunday school.

These are the things I learned:

Share everything.
Play fair.
Don't hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don't take things that aren't yours.
Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life -
Learn some and think some
And draw and paint and sing and dance
And play and work everyday some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world,
Watch out for traffic,
Hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.

I know a great deal of 20 somethings that definitely could learn a thing or two from this poem. How funny is it, that as we grow older we all try to complicate things...when really life should be so simple as sharing everything and playing fair. I have been saying for years that I need a job that requires nap time...I would for sure excel at that. Cookies and milk in the afternoon? Yes, please!

If only all our politicians and world leaders could follow these simple lines...saying sorry when you hurt someone does go a long way, taking things that aren't yours is not very nice, hold hands and stick together...I think sometimes we are so caught up in our own battles that we forget to reach out and hold on to someone when they need us the most.

Who knew at the ages of 4 or 5, we learned some of life's most valuable lessons. Too bad most of us have forgotten them.

I'm still here...

no Dorothy or Toto or Tin Man or Scare crow business happening here. Can I just say, having grown up in Oklahoma my whole life and having experienced my fair share of tornado warnings and watches...these last few days have gotten me pretty worked up. See, I am slightly paranoid of things, especially storms...especially storms that involve the possibility of tornado's. You would think growing up in Tornado alley, I would be used to such events...ya, not so much. 

The Joplin, MO tornado really frighten me and many of us Okie's. It is just tragic what those people are experiencing, my heart breaks for them and I can't even imagine, much less want to imagine, the pain and suffering and heartache they are going through. Because of this tornado that happened there ( it being so close to home ) people who aren't normally scared of storms/tornado's were freaking out. Weathermen were warning us about said storms for days and preparing us for the worse. I seriously thought I was preparing for a nuclear bomb or something.

My dad, who when I was growing up, never ever went to the cellar. He is one of those true Okies that stands outside watching the tornado go by. Yeah, he's a bright one. Anyway, my mom told me this morning that even Dad was ready and willing to go to the cellar if need be.

Thankfully though, none of us had to take cover. Personally, I don't know how a closet or bathroom was going to protect me from a tornado...I was a little worried about that...because I have always had a cellar to use. However, some parts of Oklahoma weren't so lucky. I believe the Oklahoma City area had some damage and the last I heard 11 people were killed.

Please say a prayer for those families and those who have lost property and continue to pray for those in Joplin. It's just so scary to think that in a matter of seconds you could loose everything...including the clothes on your back.

Prayers go out to Joplin

Good Morning loves.

I am sure you have seen or heard about the devastating tornado that occurred last night in Joplin, MO. Joplin is about an hour or so away from where I live here in Oklahoma.

So far at least 89 people have been killed and authorities are estimating that at least 25-30 % of Joplin has been damaged. It was about a mile wide tornado. 

The news this morning said that more storms are on their way for my area and Joplin's. So, I just ask if you would say a quick prayer for the families in Joplin today as well as continue praying for those who were in the Alabama tornadoes also.

Just remember to truly thank God for all your blessing in your life.

Have a great day!

Today is the day...

the day we, my mom and I, have been dreading. Not so much dreading because it's a happy day, just a sad day. Baby Brother graduates.

He went from this little poser

to this handsome man

Happy Graduation day Logan. I am so proud of you and the man you have become. I love you more than words could say. Even though you may annoy me on any given day...what little brother doesn't...I wouldn't trade you for anything. Though, I have been tempted...jk. 

I am so blessed to have you as a little brother.

Now, if you need me, I will be the blubbering idiot at the graduation.

Just a little rant...

Thought I would share with you just a few things that are on my mind....

*Drivers. If you are over the age of 90 and can not see over your steering wheel. DO NOT DRIVE. Please, for your sake and mine.
( I do love old people, just not ones that drive like crazy, drunken lunatics)

*People who update their facebook status every 20 seconds and take up my news feed seriously annoy me. I do not need to know where you are at, every given second of the day, nor do I need to know about your child's bowl movements. Please do not post crap (no pun intended) like that. You are thisclose to do not being my facebook friend. Actually I might delete you anyway.

*Wal-Mart. Oh, so many things about Wal-Mart I could say, however I will just say one thing. Why are there  a hundred check-out lines, but at any given time of the day no matter how busy it is, there are only like three checkers? Self-Checkout would be nice...IF IT WAS WORKING! I do not like waiting over 30 minutes for just three items. Not cool Wal-Mart, not cool.

* I really didn't intend for this to be a rant post, but I guess it is turning out that way.

*Neighbor kids. It is not nice to continually flip me off when I am driving down the street. One-you should not be playing in the middle of the street 2. You are like six years old and shouldn't be playing in the street by yourself much less giving me the bird and 3. Where the hell are your parents??

*All of my favorite shows are being cancelled. Brothers and Sisters, I am pretty sure One Tree Hill is going off the air, after it's season finale this week, I am pretty sure its over. What am I going to DVR now?

*The main kicker of it all...baby brother graduates tomorrow. I would like him to be five years old, with curly hair, me reading him stories and making up songs about him and his pony. He is my favorite in the whole world and I am so not ready to watch him walk across that stage. Bittersweet. Bittersweet.

We Want to know Wednesday...


I am linking up with another We Want to Know Wednesday with Mamarazzi...I am loving these questions.

1} If you could choose a Super Power, what would it be?
Do I have to choose just one super power? Well...if I have to choose just one, I think I would want to be invisible. By nature I like to know whats going on with everything and everyone, some might call this nosey...I just call it being informative. This way, I can go wherever, whenever I want and no one has to know. I could go to the White house, I could have been at the Royal Wedding...you name it and I am there.

{2} What would be your first frivolous purchase if you were awarded a million dollars tomorrow? (and don't say "that's not a lot of money", it sounds pretentious)
I know it's so cliche to say shopping...but I would have to go with a shopping spree. Wait...let's combine that  shopping spree with a trip to an island with an all inclusive resort where drinks come freely. 

{3} What would be the hardest current luxury for you to give up?
Hands down...my DVR. I love that thing. Greatest invention. I know my DVR has caused me to watch/record way more reality shows than a normal person should watch, but I do not care. I love it. I will not go back to the days of recording something on a video tape. No sir.

{4} If you were given a choice between being given great wisdom and great wealth, which would you choose?
Great wisdom...because with great wisdom, comes great wealth. See...I already have great wisdom, I am so philosophical. haha. Plus, I like to know everything : )

{5} I you were to be stranded on a deserted island for 100 days what 5 THINGS would you pack?

1. I would most definitely bring baby brother. Even if he didn't want to come, I am bringing him. He can catch/hunt anything and everything, kill it, skin it, cook it. I would not go hungry if I had him. He also watches all those shows about those guys that go out into the woods or whatever and have to live off the land for days only eating bugs and stuff...so he knows his stuff. I however, watch things like Mob Wives and Real housewives of Orange County so I only know about furs and fake boobs. 

2. My phone...considering I get good service. That way I still have contact with people, mainly my mom. Scratch that...I am just making my mom my number two thing or should I say person to bring.

3. Tequila...if I am going to be stranded on an island with my mom and brother for a hundred days...one of us is definitely going to need a drink or two or three. ( I do love them very much)

4. Sunscreen...I believe I learned my lesson a couple of weeks ago...I do not want to relive that again. No, thank you.

5. Shampoo/bath wash...I want to look nice and clean when the people come and rescue us off this island.

How would you answer these questions, go link up and tell us!

Have a great Wednesday loves

The thunder rolls....

and the lightenin' strikes, another love grows cold on a sleepless night....ok, I will stop singing Garth Brook's "The thunder rolls" and talk about a different kind of thunder. Storm thunder? Well, yes we get that too...a lot actually here in Oklahoma...but something else. Something that has taken over every single Oklahoman including this blonde okie.

I am talking about our NBA basketball team, the OKC Thunder. I will admit, I am not one to usually write about sports, I don't really know that much about the stuff. I did however win the NCAA bracket that I was in...so I may know something. The only sports I really care about are OSU football and I like to watch baseball games. That is my extent of sports.

Now, I am not going to get into statistics and how many games we need to play to win the whole thing, because I just don't know. I do know this. I am proud of the recognition they are getting and how they are representing Oklahoma. I'd say they are doing a pretty good job.

OKC Thunder is a very young team, in fact the second youngest team in the league. The two star players, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are only 22 years old. In any interviews I have seen with Durant, he is so humble and so genuine and appreciative of all the opportunities he has been given. To me, that outweighs how many jump shots or three pointers or whatever it is that basketball players do.

I recently saw something posted on face book and I had to share it with y'all. As you know, we experienced a horrific terrorist attack in our state. The 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal building. I will never forget that day, or the images that were on the TV for months. Our state came together in a way I had never seen before or known a state could do. This video is a great story of how the Thunder has taken something so tragic and brought life back to the city and the state. It is because of this video, these players, the people of Oklahoma...that I am proud to be from this state.

So, Thunder Up boys...lets kick ass in another Red River Rivalry.

Oh and P.S. Watch the Ellen Show today, because I heard that she is going to mention the OKC Thunder.

And so it begins...

This week is going to be quite the emotional week for me...as you know, I love my baby brother so very much and he is graduating high school. Well, the time has finally come and this Friday, my baby brother graduates. I can feel the tears coming right now just thinking about it. You might as well just give me a couple of boxes of tissue right now.

Yesterday was his Baccalaureate...and before we even got out of the car I started crying. Am I weird? Am I the only sister that cries at her brothers graduation? Please tell me I am not. I have been crying even more than my mom...and this is her baby that is graduating. She is going to be an empty nester and will have to live with Dad all by herself...if that doesn't call for some tears, I don't know what does : ) 
Mom and baby Brother

Dad, baby brother and Mom

Me and baby brother

So...let the crying begin or should I say continue

Kissing Frog Friday...the beginning

"As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal finds herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda, buckle up and just keep going." Sex and the City.

Happy Friday loves, and welcome to the first installment of "Kissing Frogs Friday." I'd like to think I have picked up a few things about dating and relationships along the way in my 26 years. Maybe I haven't. This could explain why I am still single. Who knows. In case you missed the reason behind this post, go back here.

I think I should start at the beginning...back to the year of 1989 when this little blonde okie was about five years old, and acid wash jeans, scrunchies and bright neon clothes were still in style. This way we can figure out exactly why it is that I am still single. 

I remember my first boyfriend, he was my next door neighbor. Lived right across the street. Isn't that always how it is, your first boyfriend is always either down the road from you or right across from you...pretty much in the same vicinity. In only they were that easy to find now...if they were, you probably wouldn't be reading this here post.  Of course, the word "boyfriend" meant boy who was your friend who you played tag or hide and go seek with, drew pictures or colored. Sometimes we would play house. I was the mom and he was the dad and we would have make-believe babies. I was in Kindergarten. He might have been in first grade, not sure...I like em' older. He was from Germany and I loved going over to their house and eating the yummy German food that his mom would cook. Maybe, this is where my love for Sauerkraut started? Things were all well and good until one day...he up'd and moved. That my friends was the first time a boy ever left me. Just left me heartbroken. I had to play house all by myself, look after my make believe children and continue making my mud pies, sans man. Your first heartache is brutal...

I moved on, of course, how could I not. I was looking good in my pigtails and hair bows...the bigger the better, I went to school with my My Little Pony lunch box and was off to find me a new man. I found one, I believe his name was Zach. I don't really remember, I was only six years old...you can't be expected to remember every guy you date at that age, right? I don't remember if it was a Christmas program or what kind of program it was, but the elementary school that I went to had a program...where I had to square dance. That in and of itself is a different blog for another day, but let me tell you, I've got moves. I can shake what my momma gave me with the best of them.

Anyway, I swear this story that I am about tell you, my Papa tells it All. The. Time...he said he wishes he had a video camera that night, because he would have won the 10,000 dollars. Is the suspense killing you? Are you dying to know what happened? Ok, here goes it. That night us little ones, were supposed to square dance in this program. I was up there doing my thang...just a dancing and entertaining away with my partner/boyfriend. One little girl's partner didn't show up, therefore she didn't have someone to dance with. This little bitch decided that she wanted to take my man. My man? I don't think so honey! She then proceeded to snatch  my dancing partner away from me. I was left there all alone. In the middle of the stage. Partner less. I stood there for a minute. Arms crossed, leg tapping. My papa says that I looked at the audience than looked back at her and my dancing partner and marched right over there, pushed her away and grabbed my partner like he was the last man on earth.NO ONE and I mean NO ONE takes my man and gets away with it. No ma'am.

You don't mess with five year old Lyndse. You don't steal her man.

So you see all before first grade, I lost a boyfriend and had one stolen from me. Brutal times I tell ya. Brutal.

Fast forward 21 years, I have had more boyfriends move away so to speak and I have had some taken from me...I guess I just no longer have the same fight in me as five year old Lyndse did or maybe I just haven't found anyone worth fighting for.

I need your help...please

Happy Thursday morning....I must say, I woke up today thinking it was Friday and then when I realized this I was slightly disappointed. Oh well...I blame it on the storms that came through last night that knocked my power out for hours...I had to take a bath by candle light, which really isn't so bad. Kind of relaxing actually. I just might have to do it again, not the no electricity part...just the candlelight part.

As I have mentioned before, my best friends and I are going to San Francisco this summer. We are going for two major things: Napa Valley and running in the San Francisco Marathon. Well, I am not running the marathon, just a 5k...but still. It's running.

This is where I  need your help. We have all gone to San Fran before; Miss Football lived there for a summer. So, we have done your typical touristy things. We are wanting to do things we haven't done this time around.

Here's what we have planned so far. Friday-Napa and Sonoma Wine tours all day. If any of you lovely readers have been to Napa or Sonoma, do y'all have a certain tour you would recommend? Any restaurants we should try out, bars or anything?

We are going at the end of July...we were hoping to come across some fun summer festivals...if you live in San Francisco or have visited during that time, what is there to do that is fun for us 20 something gals and cheap too...I foresee my money mainly being spent on wine and shopping. I have to go to H&M while I am there, we don't have one in Oklahoma...and I L.O.V.E that store.

Any and all ideas are welcome and if you happen to be in the area the same time we are...call a sister up!

What do you want to know....

I am trying a new link up today....I think it's a good one : )


  1. What game show have you always thought you could be on and totally WIN!
Wheel of Fortune and The Price is Right.

When I was little and would stay with my Nana and Papa, heck even now, when I stay with them we ALWAYS watch the Wheel. I love that show, I can solve those puzzles like no one's business.
Price is Right, because I have always wanted to play Plinko. That is my favorite game on there oh and I want to spin the wheel.

Do you have a tattoo(s)? What are they and what made you chose them? If not, would you get one, yes/no/why?
Yes, I have a tattoo. I really have no reason why I choose that tattoo other than the fact that I like hearts and my favorite color is pink. So, yes my tattoo is of two pink hearts on my right hip bone. My mom and I got tattoos when I turned 21 and she turned 40(she may kill me for saying that), she got a tattoo in the same spot. Hers is a pink horseshoe with bob wire.

What is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own?

I don't think I have an actual favorite piece of jewelry. I love all jewelry especially earrings and rings. Love them.

What is your driving pet peeve(s)?

Oh goodness...I have a few. I also have slight road rage. I do not like it when people to not use turn signals. IT IS THERE FOR A REASON PEOPLE!! Also, when you are just being dumb and not paying attention, driving under the speed limit.  Just to name a few.

What was your favorite sitcom growing up that you wish was still on?

Going a little old school for one of them...I loved loved Full House. Still love it, I like to watch the re-runs all the time. Also, who didn't have a crush on Uncle Jesse??

Friends...I absolutely love Friends. Still do, I have all the seasons on DVD, I swear you can always relate something in life to an episode of friends. I will have marathon Friends day, I have the Friends game, in college when I thought my apartment was burning down, one of the items I grabbed to save from the fire were my seasons of Friends on DVD.

Some might say I am obsessed.

Programming note...

One of the reasons my friends wanted me to start a blog and one of the reasons I decided to start a blog was because of our emails. The four of us, also known as the cashmere mafia, email each other quite often. We discuss everything from trips we plan on taking, big or small events happening in our lives, we discuss our future weddings, what we want to name our babies, we go off on rants, you name it...we have discussed it. On Miss Football's blog, she used to do this quote of the month...well, not to brag or anything, but I was the reining quote of the month for practically a year. She doesn't do this anymore...maybe because I have my own blog now. That is the reason they wanted me to have my own blog, because of my "quotes" or really, the great one liners that I give. I feel like I haven't given any great one liners on my own blog, maybe I have...I don't remember...anyway, I said all that to say this. Here lately Miss Football and I have got into some great discussions about relationships. At one point, I thought...this stuff is too good to not let other people read it.

Now, I am by no means Dr. Phil or anything, but I like to think I have a pretty good take on life and relationships...I may not currently be in one, but I still know some things. Or least I think I do.

So, I am going to start a post on Friday's dedicated to my take on relationships, my experience's with dates...good or bad, why I am considered " too picky", what I have learned I want and don't want in a husband(I am sure this will change...I am a girl after all) and whatever else a single gal wants to talk about. Because, that's me. A single gal and I like to talk...which is why I have a blog. Obviously, my opinions may be different from yours, and that is ok...because it's a free world and we are all entitled to our own opinions. I would also love to hear your input on everything. Good or bad...well maybe not so bad : ) Miss football has a blog every Friday that is dedicated to Farm/ranch life...it's called "Friday Farm day." My blog, thanks to Miss Football's clevernce is called "Kissing Frog Friday's. I kinda like it. I may also have her do a guest post every once in awhile or you too...if you want too. We all have relationship thoughts and advice and bad dates that need to be told.

So...look forward to Friday for the first installment of "Kissing Frog's Friday."

Why "Kissing Frog Friday's?" because I have been told by Disney and other people, that sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince. Believe me, I have kissed plenty o' frog...so I got some stories. 


I have a love/hate relationship with the sun

You know what's worse then being sunburn? I thought it was the day after being sunburn, but I was wrong. The worst is most definitely the day after the day after the sunburn...you feel me? Two days after the dreaded day my brain forget to tell the rest of my body to use sunscreen. First off, thank you all for your sweet comments and tips for Le burn...I think the stock in Aloe Vera has most definitely gone up, thanks to me.

I couldn't sleep At. All. Last Night. Every time I turned it felt like my skin was being ripped off my body. If that's not cruel and unusual punishment, I do not know what is. The only way my shoulders and back don't hurt, is when I am topless. TMI? Sorry. Can't really go to work topless...well, I guess some people can...it's just not my chosen profession. Next best thing, off the shoulder tops...thank God for off the shoulder tops.

This isn't my first rodeo with sunburns. We go way back...back as far as I can remember. I am very fair skinned. So, you would think I would know better. Apparently, my brain was on vacation, go figure. I remember this one time when I was probably like 8 or 9, I got really really burned all over my back, shoulders, arms, everywhere. I even used sunscreen. My Nana, took evaporated milk and poured it all over my back. I will never forget that smell, it was disgusting. It worked though. The next morning, the redness was all gone and so was the sting. The smell lingered forever though. Gross.

When I was in high school, my church youth group went snow skiing. It was my first time to ever go skiing, so I didn't know that the sun glaring off the snow can burn you just as bad as it does when you are on the water. Know where I am going with this? The only thing people warned me about was to make sure and have chap stick, because your lips will for sure get chapped. I probably applied chap stick to my lips 50 times a day, you better believe those babies never got chapped...my face however, was another story. My face got so burned that it started bubbling up, it got so bad that I couldn't even open my mouth to talk or eat. Needless, to say when I got home my mom took one look at me and took me straight to the ER...I had second degree burns on my face. Yes, second degree burns. Fortunately, I just put some stuff on there that the doctor gave me and it was back to normal in no time. It was still scary though and I looked ridiculous.

So, ya...me and the sun...sometimes we are not friends. I should be a walking campaign for sunscreen. For reals.

I look like a lobster...

Just a few things on this Monday morning....

1. I feel so much better after I got my hair done and eyebrows waxed on Saturday. Not to sound like a typical girl,but I LOVE getting my hair done. I feel like a new woman afterwards...and who doesn't love being pampered.

2. I saw Easton Corbin Friday night in concert...he is quite handsome. I would like to marry him. Too bad he's already married.

2. I bought a new fishing pole a few weeks ago, it's pink. Quite cute...if I do say so myself, anyway...the fam went fishing all day yesterday for Mother's day. We had a great time of fishing, however...I didn't put sunscreen on...didn't even cross my mind to do so. Therefore this happened....

3. The day after a sunburn = not fun! I haven't been this burnt since I was a child. No bueno.

Aww...Friday, I am so glad you made it!! This week has been WAY too long. The weather is b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l here in the 918 today, makes me wish I didn't have to be stuck inside all day working. Let's be honest here, even if I had the day off...I probably would be sleeping right now...not really enjoying the sunny weather. A girl needs her beauty rest.

So tonight, this blonde okie will be singing and dancing along to this handsome fella...

Mr. Easton Corbin. I love love love him....when I first heard his song on the radio, I thought for the longest time that it was George Strait singing it. They sound so much alike. It's probably the reason I love him so much...he's like a mini George. Sigh.

I also get to get my hair done and eyebrows waxes. Y'all...my roots are terrible. I am actually embarrassed and I hope Mr. Corbin doesn't notice how terrible my hair is right now : ) I am thinking about adding some bangs like Reese in this picture...what do y'all think? If I could also add a husband like Reese in the picture...that would be awesome too!

In other breaking news...the " Home Alone" house is up for sale....yep, that's right! I love "Home Alone" and if I had 2.4 million dollars, I just might have to buy it. Too bad I don't.

The Kentucky Derby is this weekend. It is most definitely on my bucket list to go. In fact, next year Miss Football and I are planning on going. I can't wait to wear the fancy dress and big hat.

Move over Britt's you aren't the only ones who can wear big hats.

Mother's day is this weekend...don't forget to tell your Momma how much you love her. I love you mom! You are the best mom a girl could ask for!

Well, that's all for now...have a great weekend loves!

Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

Can I just just say I love the 5th of May...I love a day that pretty much gives me permission to drink Margaritas and eat chips and salsa ALL. DAY. LONG. Holla!!

Am I going to be able to do this? No. I have to be an adult and work. I am just guessing that it is probably highly frowned upon to drink Margaritas while working all day. Just a guess. Wouldn't that be an awesome job though, to work and drink a few margaritas.

So, since the majority of us have to be stuck at work not being able to consume said beverage, I have a solution for you. Behold Margarita cupcakes...not just any but Vegan. Vegan, because you know I can't have dairy...which totally sucks. My two favorite things...cupcakes and margaritas have paired up and the union could not have been any better.

Vegan Margarita Cupcakes


1/4 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest, freshly grated
1 cup soymilk
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons tequila
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


1/4 cup margarine

1 tablespoon soymilk

3 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon tequila

tiny drop green food coloring

2 -2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

1 pinch kosher salt or 1 pinch coarse salt

1/2 cup large crystal decorator sugar (to decorate edge of cupcakes)Directions
  • Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 F and line muffin pan with cupcake liners.

  • 2 Beat together lime juice, zest, soy milk, oil, tequila, vanilla and sugar.

  • 3 Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Combine into the wet ingredients and mix until smooth.

  • 4 Fill liners about 3/4 fill. I use an ice-cream scoop. Bake 20-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

  • 5 Transfer cupcakes to a cooling rack and cook completely before frosting.

  • 6 Icing: Blend margarine until soft and fluffy; stir in soy milk, lime juice, tequila and food coloring. Use only the tiniest bit of food coloring.

  • 7 Sift in 2 cups confectioners sugar and blend until smooth and creamy. Add additional confectioner sugar if the icing appears too liquidy. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  • 8 Spread icing on the cupcakes spreading all the way to the edges.

  • 9 Roll the outer edge of the cupcakes in the sugar crystals.

  • P.S. I have no idea why the font and everything came out looking like this.

    Hasta Luego Senoras!

    It's Wednesday and that means all things that I am loving today...

    I am loving this beautiful morning...for the first morning of the month (I realize it is only the forth day of May) I haven't had to turn my heater on...YES! Maybe this means summer is fast approaching

    I am loving that my baby brother chose this picture to be his FB profile picture...he loves me, he really loves me. Which is good since I love him.

    I am loving that even if you haven't seen or talked to an old friend in over six months, you can pick up right where you left off.
    Picture from my 23rd birthday with said friend

    I am loving these quotes...

    I always love Audrey Hepburn...here are a few of my favorite quotes by her...

    As always, I am loving my momma. She is my best friend and is the greatest mom a girl could ask for! Love you Mom!!

    (Please excuse the deer head in the background, baby brother made us take a picture in front of it...the things I do for that kid)

    Hope everyone has a great day today

    P.S. This is my 100th post...YAY!! I feel like balloons and confetti or something should be happening about right now.
