Romance In A Glance :)

So I follow this lovely blog Romance In A Glance. Its a super fun blog that highlights all things romantic (obviously). And there's a fun little giveaway going over there

so get your booties over there and check it out!! 

30 Day Challenge; Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you.

My mom. (My Sister's Mom). Her strength inspires me. Everything she's been through, and all the challenges she's face have made her someone I'm blessed to call mom. I thank her for opening her heart, her family to me. She inspires me to do well in all things I attempt, to live up to all my potential, and try to be the best person I can be, so that one day, my little girl will be able to say that her mom is the person that inspires her the most.

**Disclaimer!!! This was the answer to the "What Inspires You" Giveaway, over at This Life is Sweet that won me my amazing headband, that I wear all the time! :)

30 Day Challenge - Day 13 - A picture of your favorite band or artist.

                Framing Hanley                         Between the Trees
The thing is, I believe in real music. Bands. Instruments. Real vocals. And yes, I'm a little bit Katy Perry obsessed, and I listen to the occasional Ke$ha song. But my heart truly lies with these men. The ones that take their "garage bands" and make something of them. The ones that are in it more for the music, and not so much the fame. The ones who write their own songs, and when they play them you can feel the emotion behind the words. 

I first came across Framing Hanley about three years ago, and my boyfriend introduced Between the Trees to me about a year ago. It was love at first hear! I've yet to come across a song of either of these bands that I didn't like. 

Seriously guys, take a listen! 

Don't get me wrong, Katy Perry IS one of my fave artists, and country music holds a dear place in my heart (Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Reba, Dolly Parton, Kenny Chesney, The Band Perry. I could go on, and on) but its a completely different style of music. 

Anyhow, those are my music faves. If I've introduced you to something new, I hope you enjoy it!! :)

30 Day Challenge; Day 12 - A picture of something you love.

I think this only came to mind because I have an abundance of strawberries in my fridge, but it stands true. I LOVE chocolate covered strawberries!

I'm a sucker for fresh flowers. If I could have them in my house at all times I would! 

I have a bit of a problem when it comes to coffee. Its something I've recently been keeping in check, but its a lecture to myself every time the thought comes into mind, and not a fight I always win...

I am IN LOVE with this movie! Seriously, I can watch it over and over and over again! I love the whole plot, I love the characters, and lets be real people...
I just love Emma Stone! 
I mean, for one, look at her. And for two, she's a genuinely good actress.
Plus, she's a redhead. :)

Well that's my love list. Just what came to mind when I read the 'challenge of the day'. Happy Friday lovelies! Hope you have a grand weekend!

30 Day Challenge; Day 11 - A picture of something you hate.

Seriously, this drives me crazy! Particularly the your/you're. Others are annoying, but this is like (wait for it...) fingernails on a chalkboard. (Get it? Cause the pictures of writing on a chalkboard? Get it?!)

30 Day Challenge; Day 10 - A picture of the person you do the most ****** up things with.

Bestie. As you can see, we go way back. And basically all of my typical teenage antics were done in her company. We've gone through our ups and downs, and even went through a period of time when we didn't speak for months, but I love her to pieces!

And that's all the blog energy I have for now, until next time lovelies.

I had a busy, busy weekend! I went shopping for BabyGirl's birthday on Saturday. I pretty much found everything I need for her little ladybug birthday party! :) So cute! I'm so excited for her birthday this year. She actually knows what a birthday is so its a whole new experience! She's gonna be three, and I'm gonna cry all day! Then yesterday Sister and I took BabyGirl to the Asparagus Festival. We took her on the paddle boats, she LOVED IT! Then we went for pizza and took her to the park. So there's my excuse for not fulfilling my 30 Day Challenge duties. I was gonna catch up tonight, and I will a bit later if I can't sleep, but I'm not in the mood to do it right now. The weekend was lovely, but today not so great. So I'll return to my normal half moody self later. But for now, this is all I have in me...

Soo I'm having a good day today. And since 11:45 is too early for my brain to shut down I thought I'd have a little fun with letters. :)

(Stolen from the lovely Bon Bon over at The Whim Wham Life.)

Age: 22
Bed size: Queen, I LOVE my bed!
Chore you hate: Laundry. I loather laundry!
Dogs: We have one. Tasha, she's (supposedly) my dad's but I'm the one thats raised her! She loves me more!! 
Essential start of your day: A "Good morning!" from BabyGirl. :) Starts my day off right!
Favorite color: Teal.
Gold or silver: I want to say silver, because that really is what I prefer. But the two rings I wear (my moms wedding ring because it doesn't fit her, and a ring that was made for my grandmother) are both gold... So both?
Height: 5'5"
Instruments I play (or have played): Piano, I'm working on reteaching myself. And the drums.

Mom's name: Robin.
Nickname: Cassie (Its Cassandra.) Cass, CeCe (by few), HoneyBun.
Overnight hospital stays: Just the one time, for the birth of BabyGirl.
Pet peeve: Text talk. It drives me crazy!
Quote from a movie: "What's the matter with me, baby, what's the matter with you?" 
Danny Zuko, Grease. He's such an ass, but I love him!! Grease is probably my all time favorite movie. I was a tad obsessed, I own the soundtrack, the movie (on VHS), an autographed photo of Olivia Newton John and John Travolta, AND a copy of the original manuscript! (My mom did a lot of ebay, I had a Grease Christmas one year.)
Right or left handed: Righty.
Siblings: Just the one. I always wished I had a sister as well, but then again, I have one. :)
Time you wake up: Seven...ish.
Underwear: Umm, yes? I do, generally, wear underwear.
Vegetables you dislike: I'm terribly picky. Seriously, this list would be way too long.
What makes you run late: Myself mostly, or my father, if its a family event.
X-rays you've had done: Zero. I've never had a broken bone or anything, the only time I've ever had to go to the hospital for myself was when I was in labor.
Yummy food you make: This is gonna sound lame, but I make bomb scrambled eggs! I know, I know. Who doesn't? But seriously, I get rave reviews! 
(Don't worry, I'm not that limited. But it was the first thing that came to mind, and its true!)
Zoo animal: Otters, or sea lion, walruses, whatever cute little oceanic creature they have. I'm a sucker for a mammal under water. :)

30 Day Challenge; Day 04 - A picture of your day/night.

This is me RIGHT NOW! Being a good little blogger and doing my daily duty. :) (I make this face in like every picture I take of myself...) My day consisted of laundry, homework, entertaining BabyGirl of course. Pretty standard day, my sister says I'm pretty much a fifties housewife without the husband. (I'm working on the dresses!! ) But that's my job, its how I contribute to the household. Tomorrows Friday people, hope you all have funfilled plans for the weekend. I think I shall take a voyage to the Asparagus Festival! Always fun times. :)

30 Day Challenge; Day 03 - A picture of the cast from your favorite show.

Being Erica 
The show stars Erin Karpluk as Erica Strange, a woman who begins seeing a therapist to deal with regrets in her life, only to discover the therapist (Michael Riley) has the ability to send her back in time to actually relive these events and even change them. (Stolen from Wikipedia).

I LOVE this show. Its the only thing I still manage to keep up on, on Hulu. I highly recommend it!

30 Day Challenge; Day 02 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest.

She's my best friend, my sister, my heart. She's been there for me, through thick and thin, and I honestly don't know what I would do without her! She's Aunty to my BabyGirl, daughter to my parents, sister to my brother. She is the most amazing and strongest person I know. Through everything life throws at her, she stays true to herself. And I respect her so much for that! I love her as if we were blood, and that is the bond we have. We'll be together till the day we die, and then we'll be doing it big in heaven!! :)

A lazy way to blog, if you will. And it might become a regular thing, if I can find enough things to do. Now I'm not saying the only posts I have will be from this, some days they might be, other days not. But its a fun easy way for blog topics. And a bit of a look into me. So here goes nothing.

30 Day Challenge;
Day 1- A picture of yourself with ten facts.
1. I'm a mommy. :)
2. I just started school again, its kinda scary, but I'm so happy to be doing it!
3. I have a wonderful family, whom I love to pieces, and can't stand, all at the same time. (Probably because I still live with them. :/).
4. I've yet to lose all the baby weight (she's almost three!) but I'm working on it!! 
5. I'm super happy about the spring weather we've been having here in lovely central cali! 
6. I'm kind of superficial if I'm not thinking about it. Its one of the things I need to work on about myself.
7. My daughter is my world, everything I do, is for her.
8. I have an amazing boyfriend, who I'm madly in love with. I'm doing long distance, and we make it work. (A feat I never would have thought possible for me!)
9. I am 22 years old, and I'm not exactly certain of what I want to do with my life...
10. I just took this picture RIGHT NOW! Yay for crappy webcam photos. :)

A bright spot in my dreary day.

So this weekend I've been all 'blah' not wanting to deal with anybody, attempting to snap out of it but one thing or another not letting me. I was all set to get on and write a 'woe is me' blog about how crappy I felt and yadda yadda yadda. And then I got on, and I'm browsing through my blogs and I see my name. What the...? Turns out I won the 'What Inspires You' Giveaway over at This Life Is Sweet. (If you're not a reader already  its a blog I recommend!) I was so excited! :) Look at the adorable headband I won.

So cute right? Everything in that shop is. You should check it out!

Its funny what small things can turn your whole day around. Tomorrow I have something in store for the blog, a bit of a jumpstart to get me into the swing of things. So stay tuned for that. :) As of now I'm off to bed and dreaming up outfit choices for my adorable new headband. Night all.

New Style.

As you can see, I've revamped the space a bit. Just felt it needed a change. It may get changed back, it may get changed to something completely different, I don't know. I do know I need sleep... One of these days I'll be a good little blogger and actually blog about something real. Night all.

Weekend Recap. ;)

Lets see, Friday was a day of homework and opening up my ParyLite site (shop here. My uncle came into town which was nice, haven't seen him in too long!

Saturday was full of laziness, made potato salad for the following day, had tacos for dinner...

Sunday was a hectic morning of taking my grandpa to the hospital (he's fine now, just a tad over medicated, from the pills they gave him for his shoulder surgery.) Getting my dad's prescription taken care of, going to Walmart, yet again, taking BabyGirl to the park, finally coming home to a lovely bbq.

And then we finally made it to the river. Knights Ferry is the place to go! Had a bit of a hike/walk up the trail. BabyGirls a trooper, I plan to start instilling more outdoor activity into our everyday routine. Now that the weather is getting nicer it'll definitely be easier to do!

That's my weekend in a nutshell.

Gonna hang with Bestie tomorrow! Its about time, we've been slacking in the quality time department. It'll be nice to catch up! Happy Monday, all! :)

A Little Self-Advertisement.

So I've mentioned that I just started selling PartyLite products. Well my leader (whom I love, by the way. She's awesome!) just gave me the challenge of earning $1000 in orders by this coming Thursday (the 7th). So if any of my wonderful (*cough* eleven*cough* readers are interested in some really awesome candles/scents/warmers/diffusers (we also sell some bomb food products) shoot me your email, and I'll send you an evite to my online show. Its a bit of a win, win here guys!! I'll make some extra cash, and you'll get fun new stuff to decorate your house/room/office!!! And I would really appreciate it! Its going on now through Thursday, so take some time to think if you need to, but don't think you have to spend a lot, every little bit helps!!

Just to add a little personality to this "business" post... :)
