So, life happened. A lot. I went to NYC in May for a short trip. I adore friends that want to travel. It’s so nice to have friends that are interested in seeing the world and will follow through! Unfortunately it rained the day I was leaving and I wasn’t able to do too much. Then all flights were delayed. I finally got on a plane to go to Boston around 9PM and stayed overnight. Took another plane from Boston around 5AM to Charlotte, NC then to Atlanta. It was a long day with little sleep. Here are pics from my trip.

Fun times with friends lately..
Oct 2015: exploring PCM bc posing with a giant clock is totally normal. (I’ve always been drawn to clocks for some strange reason. I thought it was a “me” thing until I realized my dad was too.) My face literally lit up when I saw this giant clock. #likefatherlikedaughter #imweird ????????????????????????
Nov 2015: While holding a phone to change settings, #hello came on. Naturally, I thought of this. #imusthavecalled1000times
Dec 2015: Bogart, Christmas Parties and NYE

I have been meaning to post this but things have been hectic.
The night before Halloween I was at dinner with a friend when I got a text from a guy I went to high school with. He asked me to go to a charity event for Big Boi. Of course I said yes. Stankonia made my high school experience. It turns out my friend is a sound engineer for Outkast.
I’ve always believe in the Golden Rule, and thank God. Being nice to everyone, from the jock to the band nerd, pays off. It really paid off because this guy and I weren’t really friends, but my high school wasn’t huge and we knew one another. He spends a lot of time in LA and doesn’t know a lot of people in Atlanta, so he asked me to go. Pretty sweet deal. I talked my friend I was having dinner with into going. Here are some pics.
ken and me
There was some huge swing there so we took pics.
if you don’t find this picture funny you have no sense of humor.
I love cards against humanity!
more cards. brilliant idea!
Hashtag! Just kidding, it could have been, but I didn’t ask. I just wanted a pic.
As you may have guessed, I went as a Dominatrix. I like to think outside of the box and I really just thought the outfit was hot when I bought it a few years ago. I had no other creative ideas for it. It’s funny though because I bruise easily and had several bruises on my legs. I’m either a klutz or I have started sleep walking. I joked saying it was an occupational hazard.
The links below are clips from a performance Big Boi did that I MISSED! Still pissed about that.

About a week or so ago I ordered Cards Against Humanity off Amazon. I had heard so many good things about this game. Mostly how funny it was. I thought I needed in on it. SO glad I purchased it. It literally is the best game ever! Check out the rules.
The bestie and I have been talking about doing a cleanse. We were googling a few things and I came across this hilarious post on why juice cleanses are terrible.
You know what I hate? When you’re obviously interested in someone and they act coy. Thank God I have friends that tell me things like, “he should realize that he is damn lucky to have someone like you interested in him..”

Several weeks ago I went with friends to the Braves home opener. We had so much fun. It was a little chilly but otherwise the weather was perfect. We had the best burgers while there! Here are some pics..
As we were trying to find our car, I noticed a dude passed out asleep on the bed of his truck. So funny! I know a ton of people that take off work the day of the opening game to tailgate all day, so I am sure this dude did that too. Too bad he completely missed the game.

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

Oh and I got a hair cut and more blonde earlier last Saturday along with my brows done and microderm. Yay! Fun pamper day.

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.
Gretchen was a kitty
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. 😉

My 30th didn’t start out great.
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.
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.
I just wanted to document my milestone birthday.. Here are some pictures from my bday.
My office sent me flowers on Friday. They care!
Saturday night. You can’t tell in this pic, but I figured my 30th was the perfect occasion to wear my Louboutins.
Making fun of Ashley for how she was posing in the first pic.

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.
