Once I made it out of bed yesterday, I decided to go to the minute clinic at CVS to get some abx. OTC was just not working anymore. After getting my Rx filled I went home and caught up on my DVR. I hadn’t watched any of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. So many funny moments!! Here are some of my favs.

“I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you make them feel.” -Maya Angelou
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live. – Leo F. Buscaglia

Ashley and I went to the Kings of Leon concert three weeks ago and had the best time. It was her first time seeing them and my second. We
sold our bodies to pay for our seats scored some amazing seats. FYI Stub Hub is the way to go. We were on the floor at the front of the stage on Row Q. I think the only thing that would have topped our night would have been if we met the band and got pics. The next day my throat hurt so bad from screaming my head off. Towards the end of the show they had a ton of bubbles fall from the ceiling which was so cool. I left my camera battery at home by mistake and my phone died early on, which totally bummed me out. Here are the pics we did take..
(I snagged this from their DC show off Instagram). Bubbles!
Unfortunately iPhone cameras suck. Especially with the flash so the best pics were taken in the bathroom. Go figure.
This sweet random girl friended us in the bathroom line.
Stage! SO CLOSE
They played a good mix of older songs and current ones. Freaking love them. Best concert experience so far.

For me, it’s always the most unexpected friendships that are the best. Actually, all of my closest friends were unexpected friendships. Laura was no exception. Unfortunately she took a job in Columbia, SC and moved on Thursday. I remember the day we took a walk around Chastain Park and she was complaining about how much she hated her job that I told her I’d been praying for her because I knew how much she hated it. About a week or two later she told me about a job offer. Well, that was fast.
I text her today on my way to the doctor to see how her move went since I was MIA on Friday. She told me she was nervous because she knew she was good at her old job, but what if she’s not good at this one? So like any good friend, I gave her a pep talk.
Last Saturday Gretchen, a friend, Laura and myself got together for one last Atlanta night out..
Last pic as an Atlanta resident with the moose. I swear I’m not grabbing myself..
Kissey faces, obvs

me and Laura. Going to miss her so much! I’m so happy that she is out of the situation she was in though. I know she also wanted to be closer to her family, and she is about an hour away from them now.
Oh and I got a hair cut and more blonde earlier last Saturday along with my brows done and microderm. Yay! Fun pamper day.

Have you ever thought about switching careers but didn’t know what else you wanted to do? That’s where the What Career Should You Actually Have quiz comes in handy. Here are the results I got when I took it..
You are an artist, creative juices are oozing out of you. You’d make just as good of a designer as you would an architect, as long as you get to create something. You live your life like Michelangelo, constantly looking for the sculpture within the stone. Other occupations: architect, editor.

My friend Cort posted 5 Reasons girls hate showering on facebook. It was pretty funny.. and accurate.
There’s a reason I don’t like men with beards. I think this says it all. Its funny, my bestie goes nuts over a beard. I emailed her this link and told her this explains why I think beards are gross. Plus, ew lots of hair. On your face. Pass. A little scruff? SO SEXY. Ugh and that noise when a man scratches his face. Panty dropper. Plus it feels good after you shave down below.
Eric Decker with the perf amount of scruff. mmm

I took the 5 love languages quiz to find out what my love languages were. Of course I’m two of them because I’m high maintenance. Typical. Here are the two I got:
In Quality Time, nothing says “I love you” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes you feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed activities, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Whether itʼs spending uninterrupted time talking with someone else or doing activities together, you deepen your connection with others through sharing time.
A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, and thoughtful touches on the arm—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive. Appropriate and timely touches communicate warmth, safety, and love to you.
Well, at least that explains why my last relationship didn’t work out. Take the quiz here.
