Halloween Events

Friday night Laura and I had tickets to go to a Halloween party. She received a text from our friend Gretchen saying she was across the street meeting a guy friend of ours. So we parked and crossed the street to hang out with them. Around 3:30am he drove us to my car. Oops. We had fun just hanging out at the bar with our friends we didn’t regret not going to the party.  Friday night I was a dominatrix and Laura was a Spartan cheerleader.

One funny thing from that night stands out. Because I was a dom and I had a riding crop, I had two older men in their late 50s early 60s start hitting on me. One guy was very polite and was drunk enough that he kept lightly tapping my butt with the crop. It made me laugh because I am pretty sure that’s not how it’s supposed to be used. No light tapping.

His friend was a little obnoxious. He put his arm around me and told me I was beautiful. Then he said, “I’ve been looking for a girl like you to take care of and spoil. I’d take care of you for a couple of months.” I looked at him and responded with, “Just a couple of months?” haha I think he was a little shocked. Honestly, does that line work on women? Because, wow. Luckily Gretchen came over and was all, “NO! NO! You cannot be all grabby with my friend!” Thank God, sometimes in bars I feel like because I’m so short I just get flung around like a little doll.

Saturday night I went out with Ashley to a Halloween party. She was a peacock and I was a devil that night and I’ve never had more guys approach me in my life. As you can see from the link above, the devil outfit looked slightly different on me than on the model.

When we first walked in a guy asked me to dance with him and I told him I wanted to get a drink first so he offered to get me one. We had been in the building approximately .5 seconds. HA I was standing there waiting on my drink when another guy approached me. Previous dude was no where to be found after that. As we were heading down a flight of stairs one guy took a look at me and said, “DAAAAMN, take me to hell!” haha I thought that was pretty funny.

I had another guy tell me that I had the best T&A he’d ever seen. I’m thinking, of course I do..I’m right here and in front of you. Although, they are pretty fabulous. We mingled with a few other people then headed upstairs to sit down and talk. At one point I looked at Ashley and asked her if she’d be bummed if we left. She said no so we headed home. It takes so much effort to get ready that by the time you’re ready, you’re tired. If I dress up next year, I want to go as a bum so I can wear sweats. 😉

Weekly Roundup

Sometimes I have a whole bunch of cool things to share and they don’t necessarily need a whole post. I am going to attempt to start a Weekly Roundup with those items in it. Have a great weekend!

Game On

I think it’s safe to say I’m obsessed with Jessie James and her husband, Eric Decker. I’ve been watching their show on E! and I think they are the CUTEST couple ever. He plays for the Broncos and she is a singer. You may remember this song of hers..

I think she’s hilarious and I love how she speaks her mind. Like when she says to her mom, “I think he [Eric] shot a sperm in me last night.” hahaha! Then her mom is only concerned that the wedding dress won’t fit. Love it!

She loves cake as much as I do!

She has a yorkie! And that’s just funny..

A convo Sydney (her younger sister) posted on IG. Dying!!

I love that he was so pumped about being a dad (before they got preg). They showed him washing their labs in the tub and he was picking out “hangers” from their butts. That’s love. I’ve totally had to do that before, and it’s not fun. Part of the job though!

They are a pair after my own heart!

She is currently preg with their first kid. That kid will either be the best looking kid ever. I kind of want to be her, is that weird? I’ll just take her legs though, I wish I had those legs!

Three Ohhh

My 30th didn’t start out great.

ca89e11b26a6076cb9dd565a97567fb7

Let me back up by saying that M accidentally emailed me Sept. 30. He sent a reminder for my birthday instead of an invitation when he set up his Google calendar.  So, that was fun.

See, logically I shouldn’t think about him or talk about him or miss him. I do though. I find myself saying things like “well Matt used to do X that was so funny” or something like that. When I tore him a new one emailed him around Easter, I purged everything. I was hurt to the core, and I let him know that. So why aren’t my head and heart on the same page?? That’s an excellent question. One I pray about daily.

I can deal with my feelings, but having him contact me is an entirely new level of confusing that I can’t wrap my head around. Of course all the old feelings came to surface, and I let him know. He said I mindfucked him. Because I woke up that morning knowing he’d email me..

As I was driving home from my picnic with the bestie for her birthday, I saw an email from him. My first thought was OMG STOP EMAILING ME REMINDERS!! Then I realized that it was an actual email he typed out. I read it, picked my place up a bit, got ready for bed, and then figured out my response. My response received no response, which I think hurt more than the initial email.

I woke up on my birthday confused and sad. As I was thinking about things tears streamed down my face and I began praying again. Why can he affect me this way? Why am I not over this already? What is the bigger picture here? What am I missing? PLEASE show me what all this means because I can’t take this back and forth limbo anymore. It’s very frustrating.

I started cleaning my place up for company arriving later and took things to storage. When I took a break from all the cleaning, tears streamed down my face again. You’re not supposed to cry on your birthday! I decided I would not let it get to me and it would not ruin my birthday, especially my 30th. I’d already had one ex ruin my 21st. I began cleaning again and around that time the bestie showed up. Thank God for that angel. She brought me a mini cake and some champagne for us to toast to. I gave her a hug after she put her stuff down and she told me NO TEARS! Not anymore. I love that she gets it. She gets the tears, the anger, the frustration, the sadness, the whole picture.

After the toast we got lunch, got a mani/pedi and our hair done. What a great way to spend your 30th. Being pampered with your best friend. After getting our hair done we headed to my place to get ready for the evening. I planned a small dinner with close friends, then dancing. I have never had so many people flake out of plans in my life.

The older I get, the more I realize who I can and cannot count on to be there for me. In the past I have allowed myself to become upset when I realized I couldn’t count on someone. I’m not sure if it’s an age thing or everything I have been through in the last year, but recently I have had the whatever attitude towards people when I realize that I can’t count on them. I tend to hold my friends to high standards. Maybe those standards aren’t necessarily fair to hold people to. Because of these high standards, I have been able to weed out the people that I don’t need in my life. I recall a convo between M and I from years ago.. He said he always thought he was a good friend, but since knowing me, he realized I was a GREAT friend to my friends and that he could be a better friend. I pride myself on that. If we have a connection and you need me, for something big or small, I am there. What ever gene that is, I’m glad I have it. I think it makes me a better person.

I love birthdays, especially mine. I love all things that go with it, celebrating, cake, friends, dressing up, etc. I originally started out with 10 people coming to celebrate my birthday  with me. Minutes before dinner, there were not 10 people. Maybe I should gift some Emily Post books for Christmas? It was actually me, Ashley and a guy she worked with that I’ve met once. Major props to him, he barely knew me. I had two more friends that joined me afterwards that couldn’t be there for dinner due to scheduling. Where the rest of my friends were, I don’t know. The people that knew it meant a lot to me showed up, and I truly appreciate that.

Happy Birthday To My Other Half

My other half as in, the woman that is always there for me, even that one time when we didn’t talk for 2 years.  Oopsies.

3

The woman that knows what I mean when I say “blood is not thicker than water”, because she has also been there, and doesn’t try to change my opinion.

6

The woman that understands and listens to me when I talk about my childhood relationship with my dad. How he beat me was never the amazing father, how I always wanted that awesome father/daughter relationship, because her childhood was similar.

1

The woman that understands what it feels like to walk in on your bf/fiance cheating on you, because it happened to her, a year earlier, in the same house.

20

The woman that drove an hour to pick me up from said house, kicked her husband out of bed, and talked with me all night long and the next day because I called her in shock immediately after it happened.

16

The woman that you know any man would be lucky if she picks him because she loves sex, loves football, and is a strong independent woman, just like you.

7

The woman that you packed an entire house for because you knew she needed to move.

10

The woman that you thought was intimidating when you first met her.

14

The woman that you share every tiny detail with.

19

The woman that is inspiring because she seems like she can do everything.

The woman that is inspiring because she tries to do everything.

9

The woman that understands precisely what I mean when I say I hate my small town I’m from.

2

The woman that drives you crazy because she over analyzes things just as much as you do.

The woman that is a replica of you, just 3 years older and brunette.

8

The woman that has completely opposite taste in men from you.

25

The woman that tells you “we will make a plan” when you are freaking out because you are questioning so many things in your present life.

The woman that will drive 3 hours to be with you at your dad’s visitation because she knows what it’s like to lose a parent, but can’t actually come because she caught pink eye. ha!

17

The woman that will spend 9 hours with you, 6 of those in a car, helping you pack up your dad’s house.

The woman that will finish your sentences or say your thoughts out loud.

5

The woman that you know you can say anything to and vice versa because you both have each others best interests at heart.

18

The woman that knows what it’s like to have a crush on a co-worker.

12

The woman that completely understands my relationship with M because she has been there before.

22

The woman that Bentley feels comfortable around. If you know what a baby my dog is, this is huge.

24

The woman that currently will get all of my retirement money if anything happens to me before I marry.

13

The woman that will have a baby for me, if I decide to, because I don’t want to jack up my body and because I’m selfish.

The woman that understands how important it is to maintain yourself because she’s thinks so too.

4

The woman that supports and encourages you even though she may not agree with you, because that’s just what friends do.

15

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The woman that I am lucky enough to call my best friend, which doesn’t seem to do justice to what she really means to me.

Mean Tweets

Oh man. These are pretty funny, especially Darius Rucker, Pharrell, John Mayer, Mayer Hawthorne, Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz.

Wish List

Every year for my birthday I spoil buy myself presents. When you don’t have a S.O., why not?? This year was special because not only did my dad’s house finally sell, it’s the year I turn 30! Natch, I spoiled myself a little extra.

I usually have a hard time coming up with things to tell my friends to get me. My wish list tends to be expensive, and I just can’t ask my friends to buy me stuff that’s expensive. I usually end up saying to just get me a gift card, that way I can spend it how I like, especially if I get a few of them. I have however come up with a birthday wish list. Here are a few items on it. You know you’re getting old when your birthday wish list contains furniture. 😉

Wreath

I found a cute football wreath on Etsy but I thought I could make it for less than $40 so I opted not to buy it. It took me about 2 weeks to finally finish the wreath. After burning the shit out of my finger, I wish I would have just spent the money on buying it.  Since Sara moved back home I have no one to craft with for  me.

Here is my wreath:

If you follow me on Instagram you saw the picture of my finger…

Note to you crafters out there.. when using a hot glue gun, if the glue stick becomes stuck, DO NOT try to push it in. It will come out extremely fast. At least its done!

Quitting Dating

I love when I find a post I really identify with. When I read it nodding my head the whole time because, OMG I’m normal!
Whitney has a way with her writing.. There’s something about it that I can always identify with. I do not know her in person, even though she’s also an ATLian, but I feel like she’s one of those people that you could talk to about anything and she would just listen. Those people are awesome people to have in your life.
Enough rambling, check out her post.
The fact is, somewhere along the line, I’ve become consumed with – obsessed with – dating. I’ve spent a lot of time in the last few months pursuing my relationship with God, but I’ve remained a little frustrated. For months, I’ve felt like I’ve been hitting a glass ceiling – getting so close, yet something was still keeping me from Him.

Halloween

It’s almost that time again. Time to dress up. Here are my costumes this year.

When I first saw this outfit I thought ohhh how fun! I’ll have to figure out what to be (there was no description). After little thought, it came to me. I’ll be a dominatrix. So natch some gfs and I had bottomless mimosas and proceeded to go to the porn shop, where I proceeded to buy a riding crop and test it out on my friends in the store. hahaha Oh good drunken times.

23 Things Every Woman Should Stop Doing

At times women are too hard on themselves.   I heard my morning radio station talking about things every woman should stop doing. There was a total of 23 things. Here is the list, created by Huffington Post

 

It is conventional wisdom that we’re our own worst enemies and despite the cliche, the idea rings true. We often drive ourselves insane striving for perfection in our experiences, relationships and selves, and honestly it just becomes exhausting. So here at HuffPost Women we’re issuing a challenge to ourselves — and other women — to stop doing these 23 things. (Of course it’s all easier said than done, but to employ another cliche, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.)

1. Apologizing all the time.

2. Saying “yes” to everyone else.

3. Saying “no” to yourself.

4. Viewing food as the enemy.

postres de cada signo

5. Body-snarking — out loud or in your own head.

6. Feeling like an impostor when you accomplish something professionally.

7. Obsessively untagging every “unflattering” photo of you that ever existed online.

internet addiction

8. Comparing your real life to someone else’s virtual one.

9. Holding on to regrets and guilt.

10. Wearing heels every day.

heels dress code

11. Judging other women’s sex lives.

12. Judging your own sex life.

13. Trying to be “chill.”

14. Fearing the label “crazy.”

15. WebMD-ing everything.

16. Worrying that your life doesn’t look like Pinterest.

17. Fearing being alone.

18. Being in relationships for the sake of having a relationship.

19. Not taking advantage of your vacation days.

20. Holding on to toxic friendships.

21. Spending time with people out of obligation.

22. Being embarrassed about your interests.

23. Setting deadlines for major life events.
