Another week, another absent blogger...

The past week has been busy preparing for BabyGirl's birthday party.
(More mentally, than anything anything else)
I can't believe my little lovebug is gonna be THREE on Tuesday!!!
I did good yesterday, but I have a feeling the waterworks will be ever present on the real day!
Sappy mommy over.
I'll be back this week with recaps of these last two weekends!
Happy Memorial Day loves! 
Hope all your weekends are fun filled and happy!!!

Boy, oh boy.

See, I get all wrapped up in my "real" life and it really isn't interesting at all, and so I don't post for a week. Shame on me! And this should be interesting because I can't type today! There's a lot of backspacing and mumbled frustrations going on... But here goes anyway.

 I decided to join Beth over at SweetBef who does a Flashback Friday 

And also to link up with Raquel over at Dream Out Loud for her Flashback Friday link up.

(Beth doesn't have a linky thing set up...not yet at least.)

Just a few of the things I remember from those lovely innocent childhood years.

**Jellies (also Raquel's flashback today).  
You remember those right? Awful, see through, hot, and god forbid you should wear them to the beach, or the park, sand and Jellies were not friends! I think we all had these, and I hope we all look back now and wonder why the hell we did! But at the time, I LOVED mine!


**Lisa Frank EVERYTHING.
Folders, markers, stationary, backpacks, binders. Seriously how rich are the Lisa Frank people?! Your welcome Lisa Frank people, from the kids of the nineties!

**Meeting and becoming instant best friends! 
Slumber parties and sleep overs galore!
Living right down the street from each other,
staying out till your mom called you in from the driveway.
Playing various versions of tag, hide and seek and black bear.

**TGIF. You know what I'm talking about! Full House, Step by Step, Family Matters, Hangin' With Mr. Cooper, Clueless, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, and, of course (my personal favorite) Boy Meets World. Good times! I would totally stay home on a Friday night (even though I always do anyway) to watch TGIF if they brought it back! Seriously, ABC peeps wanna rake in those ratings? Its all about the TGIF!!!! :)

Happy Friday lovelies!
Hope you all have a grand weekend!!
We're off to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom tomorrow, I'm so excited to see BabyGirl see all the animals!!!!

I'm sick and tired, of being sick and tired...

Okay peeps, I'm done with the mood I've been in for the past week and a half! Yea, things kinda suck sometimes, yea, I have a lot of stuff on my plate, yea, I'm a single mom of an almost three year old (and that stress is enough for any one person!!) and yea, I have things that I need to do, stuff I wish I could change, but the fact of the matter is, I'm sick and tired, of being sick and tired! I refuse to be a "Debbie Downer" anymore!!!

This week I am going to put forth a conscious effort to be happier. I'm going to start getting up and doing something physical in the morning, I'm going to eat right, and dammit I'm gonna get a good nights sleep!! So there's my little rant. Any tips on keeping a positive a attitude, when you kinda just want to curl up in a ball until all the bad stuff goes away? Healthy eating tips? Ways to keep motivated about working out? I'd love to hear all!

I need a vacation!

I don't know what it is about this past week, but I'm a wreck! Everything seems to have piled up on top of each other in the worst way... If its not one thing, its ten other things, and I'm feeling really burnt out this weekend. I wish I could just get away from everything for like a week, or even just a long weekend. I'm sleep deprived, I'm stressed over everything, I'm just not fairing well. My moods been dark all week, and I can't seem to snap out of it. Not for any amount of time, at least... I don't know how much longer I'm gonna be able to handle this, I just know I need a break. But the fact is, I'm not gonna get one. So I really need to figure something out...

What can I say, I heart giveaways!

Come on, who doesn't love free stuff?! Especially cute stuff from a very cute girl?! Raven over at A Momma's Desires and Pacifiers is having, what I like to call, a spring cleaning giveaway. And I just entered, but you shouldn't, because I want to win!! ...okay, okay, go enter, but only because you should check out the rest of her blog world (don't skip the vlogs people!!!)
She's well written.
Doesn't hurt that she's easy on the eyes.

Yea, I stole this off her page. Don't judge me!! ;)

So go ahead, slim my chances at winning, but only if you get all up in the rest of her business! And I'll know!!!! :)

Oh, and her boys are ADORABLE!!!

30 Day Challenge; Day 28 - A picture of something you're afraid of.

That's not to say I'm not afraid of things, plenty of things frighten me. But, sad to say, the first thing that comes to mind when asked "what are you afraid of?" is clowns. And, maybe even sadder to say, I'm so afraid of clowns I can't even look at a picture of a clown on the computer screen, so this is as good as it gets. I know its completely irrational, and I know I should probably try to get over it. But they scare the living daylights out of me, we're talking serious fear here. I can't handle it, I don't even like to talk about it!

30 Day Challenge; Day 24 - A picture of something you wish you could change.

On a broad scale?

Who doesn't want to change the world? I simply hope to do my part.

But on a smaller, more personal scale...

I'm a firm believer in the "everything happens for a reason" theory. If I changed anything from my past I wouldn't be the person I am today, I wouldn't have my beautiful little girl, or my amazing boyfriend. You can play the what if game with yourself forever, but the fact of the matter is, you can't go back. You can't change the things you've done in your past. And really, you shouldn't want to, you are who you are, and you should be happy about that. Because you are amazing!

30 Day Challenge; Day23 - A picture of your favorite book.

Surprisingly, this is super easy for me. With the amount of reading that I do, the abundance of books I read, one might think it would be hard to narrow down just one. But ever since I read The Catcher in the Rye, its been my favorite. And no book has had the same effect since. I could do a list of top ten or top five but this book would still be number one, so I'll keep it simple. If you haven't read it, do so! Its a classic for a reason!! :)

I want it, I need it, I gotta have it!

Isn't it beautiful?! I think I gasped out loud when I saw it! As soon as I have an extra 43 bucks to spend, its mine!!! Check it out here. And we can have matching bags! :)

30 Day Challenge; Day 17-22...

Day 17 - A picture of something that has had a huge impact on your life lately.

Going back to school has given me the push I need to move forward with my life, it gave me a jumpstart. Now if I could just find a job...

Day 18 - A picture of your biggest insecurity.

I'm 22 years old, I have a daughter who's about to be three, and I still live at home with my parents... A big part of that is because I'm afraid of not being able to hack it, and having to come back.

Day 19 - A picture and a letter.

I didn't have an actual letter on hand, but I have to say, I think its sad that people don't write personal letters by hand anymore. My best friend and I do from time to time, and every once in a while Army Guy will get one if the mood hits me, or its too late to text him, or both. But I think it should happen more often! I'll work on that. :)

Day 20 - A picture of somewhere you'd love to travel.

I want to go everywhere.

Day 21 - A picture of something you wish you could forget.

If you forget things you can't learn from them.

Day 22 - A picture of something you wish you were better at.

I've always loved photography, but its something I've yet to really put time into.

Yay for being caught up!!! :)
Happy Monday, Lovelies!!

My, Oh My!!

Dear, dear bloggy readers I apologize for my absence. This past week has been crazy, and I''m not even sure why, since nothing very exciting has been going on, but I'm baby free for a bit today so once I shower and get a few things done around the house I will (hopefully) return with a photo catch up of the challenge at the very least! For now I leave you with this:

Click to enlarge, its actually pretty interesting.

Because I LOVE sleep! :)
