Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

I won my very first giveaway!!
I never ever win anything so I rarely enter giveaways.
Well other than this one time at the Boy's & Girl's Club they drew my name and I won a giant stuffed cow.

Anyway I won a bow tie!  
I had forgotten I even entered this giveaway until I received an email yesterday.  I almost asked if it was a joke or if she had been hacked, but instead I just gave her my name and address to send it my way or to show up to my house to kidnap me. Either way, guess I will find out soon enough.  
Besides Papa C always told me if I was ever kidnapped not to worry because they would return me ASAP.

Also I just signed up through Northern Belle Diaries for THIS...
Northern Belle Diaries 

What an awesome idea huh?

I'm really excited about it, I signed up right away!  I'm thinking y'all should too!

You lost me somewhere between 3rd gear and 17.

One of my favorites Beth over at Shug in Boots did a post a little while back about when she was 17, such a fun post to read.  Who doesn't love a throwback post?  or maybe that's just me but you're getting one anyway....

Oh how things have changed since high school...

I went to a small high school and graduated with 42 whole people. 

Meet my high school self.

In high school...

I was a model.
I was not actually a model we just posed for a lot of pictures. ( I know I know you're surprised I wasn't.)

I slept through a lot of high school and no one minded because I told them I had a condition where I couldn't stay awake. (They believed me or just enjoyed the time I wasn't talking.)

If I wasn't sleeping I was cheering.  Doesn't green glitter eye shadow look hot on me?

 I went to prom 5 times.  Non of those times was it as great as I had always heard it would be.

These were my besties with testies.

       I showed cattle, sometimes in my cheerleading uniform until they made a rule the year after I did this you had to be in FFA/ 4-H offical dress in order to show. Rude.

I was Homecoming Queen, even though some girl started telling people she was really the real queen but I guess I complained or something and that is how I got it because I always got my way, I think was the story she came up with.  Oh small town drama....

I was in FFA and got my state FFA degree.  People never would believe me that I was in FFA, so here is proof kids.

            I had the most precious dog, her name was Miss Princess Ana Sophia Diamond, but I called her Sophie for short.

I wore too much Abercrombie and Hollister.

I ate everything in site and never gained a pound.  Oh those were the days.

I didn't drink or party in high school I just hung out with friends.  I dated the same guy for most of high school until he graduated and moved to another state for college.

I spent majority of high school just ready to graduate and go to college.
Was it all I thought it would be and more?  Oh Yes!

I had a good time in high school, would I go back? NO WAY! 
I'm more fond of my college years.

It's Sundeee Social...

Sunday Social

Happy Sundee Y'all!
I'm being social today and linking up for Sunday Social.

What is your ideal way to relax:  In my bed sound asleep, watching a movie or reading a good book.
Wow I sound old.

 Where is your favorite place to be:  Well I really love to be in my comfy bed or the beach but Vegas is always fun too.  

Who do you consider your biggest role model:  I would say Chelsea Handler, but my parents are pretty great too.

What does your life look like in 3 years?:  I have been asking the same thing! Who knows. Lets hope a better job and maybe I will have moved out of my parents house.

If you could go back and change one decision what would it be?  I would change my PowerBall numbers to the winning numbers for sure! 

What is your biggest accomplishment in life thus far?   Graduating college is a pretty good accomplishment I would say.

Go link up or take a nap, it is the day of rest after all.

Diary of a Mad Hungry Fat Girl Day 2...

 photo diet_zpsda6773aa.gif

It's Day 2 of my Military Diet.
There is a reason the word Diet has the word DIE in it.
You are suppose to wait until Day 4 to weigh, so if I do indeed die at least weigh me to see if it worked first.

Lunch is the hard part for me. 
Breakfast wasn't bad yesterday it was something I would normally eat half a grapefruit and toast with PB.
Lunch is was hard.  I just love dry tuna. -said no one ever.  I had a cup of tuna plain and a piece of wheat toast.
And dinner wasn't bad I had tilapia, half a banana, half an apple, a cup of green beans and a cup of ice cream.  I could do without the ice cream, I am more of salty person.
Today though I may not make it kids...
I feel tired and blahh but I can't have my green tea or coffee.
My lunch to look forward to is a hardboiled egg and a cup of cottage cheese complete with 5 crackers.
And FIVE whole crackers? Well weren't they generous.
What? I usually shove 5 in my mouth at one time.

Plus my fitness pal says I am not getting enough calories.  Really? Because I would had thought the 5 crackers were putting me over the edge. 

I don't like quitting things, but maybe if I just tweak this "diet" so its no longer a "diet" and more of a lifestyle change it will be more my thang.

I don't know whether to stop this nonsense right now and just eat really healthy or continue on... maybe to my death.....

Diary of a Mad Fat Girl...

Wanna split an ice cube?  My diet started today.

I hate working out.  When someone says they love working out, I immediately begin to think they have a problem with lying.

I love to eat.  I was always a skinny child and could eat everything in sight and not gain a pound until junior year of college when my metabolism came to a screeching halt.  ugh betch.  

Instead of working out and eating healthy I just took more naps and ate more fast food.  Unlike freshman year this diet didn't make me lose 10 lbs I gained like two new bodies.  Maybe not two whole new bodies, but I was the biggest I have ever been and felt like crap. My cheeks looked like I was hoarding marshmallows. 

When I moved home after graduation,  I ate a little better and my sister made me work out some so I lost a little but I haven't been consistent.

Well now G decides she is going to get married and my busted can of biscuits self has to get into a dress.  She doesn't like the style of moo moos so I have to figure something else out like losing some weight.  This body is not the rock solid body it once was.

 I'm one for quick results hence my love for spray tans and fast food. 

I trying the military diet because it is only 3 days and people have lost like 10 lbs doing this. I know the healthy way would be a different route but I don't care I'm trying this out.  Plus it will be healthier than running to McD's or Bueno so shut it.

If it works I will let y'all know!

Fun Fact Tuesday.

God is real good.

If you really know me, you know my love and addiction for spray tanning and
I just remembered something I have never shared with well anyone so here we go....

One time in college I went home with my boyfriend at the time and we were staying at his parents house, well I was staying in the guest room and the bedding was all white.  I had gotten a spray tan earlier that day and when I woke up the next morning my spray tan had rubbed off on the white sheets.  It looked so janky.  

My first thought was I need to quickly burn these sheets I can't be looking like some skanky girl that leaves brown all over the sheets, but I didn't have a lighter and that might be pretty weird when the bedding came up missing.

 I didn't know what to do I was so panicked! Then the maid arrived and what do you know she was there to change the bedding.  

God is so good people.

Have a great weekend!

Long Hurrrr don't care...

Today I am just in a mood where I do not care about a lot of the stuff people are buzzing about.  Not saying tomorrow I won't be all up on this, but not today.

Just some things I just don't care about today...

Raise your hand if you personally do not care about Lance Armstrong?
Sorry I'm not sorry, but I don't.  He is a bicycle rider.

I don't even know when the Tour De France whatever is and you probably don't either unless you just Googled it.

Manti Te'o. Made up a girlfriend or someone did for him.  Whatever.  I know of bishes on facebook doing this all the time.

Well I don't know her, but people like her. 

LiLo acting like a skank.  Wait that isn't news.  

But gets me thinking who would pay large amounts of money to have her as their escort? eww. That is like paying for Hep C.
Baby Kimye. Enough said.
Bless that baby's heart.

Now I need to go read about Teen Mom Jenelle being pregnant.  Kidding...maybe.

Monday ugh...

I hate mornings, Mondays and working, but other than that I'm good.

My weekend in pictures...
It was freezing cold and icy this weekend so I only left the house for church on Sunday.

 Hot coco in my giant mug Mama got me.

Finally got my new sewing machine out and gave it a try.

Organized my crafting, sewing and blogging area.

Was unsuccessful in figuring out what the heck is wrong with my camera.

Got a package I forgot I ordered! The Lilly Phi Mu print bag.

Played with baby girl all weekend.  I haven't met a child that loves tutus and frills more than her.
Hope y'all had a great weekend!

You know those days where it seems like every person you deal with is a jackass?

Yes, well that was today.

It's Friday people get over yourselves and quit being so hateful.

My day began with messages and phone calls at work from rude impatient customers.  Umm hello failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.  I am not someone who will take your crap.  Getting hateful with me does nothing, but piss me off.

Then I was backing out of a parking space and some hag wasn't paying attention and nearly walks into my car, then proceeds to act as though I have run over her and her favorite dog or something, waves me on and starts shaking her head and mouthing crap.

Really?  When you are as big as a car you no longer count as a pedestrian.  Besides I was more concerned about the damage she would have done to Benny than Benny would have done to her body.

I'm not always rude and I tolerate a lot from people, but after so much I am done and will make you feel stupid.

 First of all thank you to the sweet Brandy and The Mrs. Adventure of a Misplaced Belle for nominating me for the Liebster Award! Y'all are so sweet!

We had been waiting since we bought our tickets in June for the Justin Bieber concert that was last night and let me just tell you how I would sum up the evening...
Yes.  I am unimpressed Mr. Bieber.

Maybe it was our nosebleed seats. (shoot the good seats sold out fast, those kids know how to scoop those up)

or MAYBE it was the fact that the concert started at 7:00 and JB did not go on stage until about 9:30.

They could have at least let the opening acts perform a little longer or something if we were going to have to wait that long, but we waited longer just sitting there than I think Cody Simpson and Carly Rae Jepsen performed.   Rude.

Finally the Biebs came out on stage and I was just annoyed at this point. He sounded like he was sick and his voice was scratchy so maybe that was the cause for the long delay but whatever.

And no thanks to the 40 year old heffas that insisted on standing and dancing in front of Little J majority of the show, finally they sat down once she screamed I CAANNT SEEEE!!!!

Overall he put on a good show, but I felt at times like they try to distract you with all the videos and props so he doesn't have to sing as much, it was like being at Britney all over again. Don't get me wrong we all love  midget on a trampoline and acrobats but hell I paid to hear you sing not watch some video on the big screen if I wanted that I would have stayed home and watched Never Say Never.  At least that way I would have gotten to bed at a decent time.

Little J loved it until she thought he wasn't going to sing Boyfriend her fav and she was just pissed.  Thankfully he came back for an Encore and Boyfriend was the first song so the world could continue turning again.

Several of my baby cousins were at the concert too, one of the 14 year olds, she cried the whole time. She just loves the Bieb's so much. Oh to be young again.  Another one of them was lucky and on the 5th row, I can't wait to hear what girlfrand has to say about it.

 Justin get the Frat Swoop back and I will consider not being pissed off at you anymore.

Taking it back...

Today I am linking up for Take Back Tuesday.

What is more fun than a blast from the past?

Let me tell ya many good times of pushing each other around in this gem at grannies.  Yes I said push because it was broken or something, but all the cousins still played with it for hours.  Why the heck our parents didn't just get us a new one I will never know. I think they got pleasure out of watching us act as rednecks pushing and pulling this thing around the yard with a rope. Rude.

I loved these things. I got one for Christmas one year and Huey tried it out after I said no.  It ended up hitting the ceiling fan full speed and broke a wing.  I was pissed and made Mama promise to get me a new one in every color.  I just remembered she never did.

How I stayed in shape as a young tot.

My favorite board game.

What are some things from your past?
Link up!

Just call me Martha...wait don't.

I decided I needed a crafting space.  I have more crafting stuff than Martha yet my parents roomies still have not built me a crafting room onto the house. Rude I know.

Now that I have a sewing machine and Silhouette Cameo I can't just leave this stuff laying around on the floor of my room, because these things make me a profesh. DIYer now duh.

I found an old table in my parent's office, moved the junk that was covering it and decided to repaint it.  I of course googled repainting furniture because I am lazy and did not want to do all that sanding business and I found where several people recommended Zinsser primer, which you just paint and then use whatever paint on top of that.

You will need:
An old/ugly piece of furniture
primer for all surfaces (Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 is what I used)
paint brushes

I found my primer and paint at Home Depot.  I wasn't sure how the wood would take the paint so I bought primer for all surfaces the Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 and the paint I used was Behr's Coral Interior Satin Enamel.

I just used cheap foam brushes because I hate cleaning brushes and wanted to be able to just throw them away when I was done.

I  put paper under each of the legs of the table while I painted it because I get lazy and in a hurry, but I probably should have used a drop cloth or plastic on the ground. (I hope Mama didn't have an emotional attachment to that rug in the office)

I repainted the legs white and used the coral for the top.  I did two coats for the legs since they were already white and about 5 coats of coral just because I am obsessive like that.

I didn't realize until I was finished that the table might not fit through the door and hallway to my room, so along the way the table got pretty scratched up.  After some damage was done I saw that the table legs would easily come off. Who knew?  So once I got it into my room I put it back together and did some touching up.

There it is and goes great with my gray walls and I now have a crafting space until I get my dream crafting room. :)

Pinterest Fail.

Sometimes you come across something on Pinterest and think easy. How can you  manage to screw that up?  

Well my friends you may think something is easy, but you could be wrong.

Just check out my pretty cake balls.  Don't worry I don't plan on going into catering.

Tutorial coming up soon on the craft table I just repainted for my room.  Rest assured it turned out better than my Oreo balls.

The Funk.

I should probably stop reading all my daily reads before I post each day, by the time I am done I am left with nothing. 

As I am going through my favorite reads... 

Oh that is some funny shit! 

That's deep, she is such an inspirational writer. 

Cute kid.
LOVE her outfit. 


Another giveaway? 

Guest post huh? Again. 

No I will Not Sponsor you. 

What I need to do is quit comparing my writing to so many others. I read some of my favorite blogs and just think if I could put things into words like them I could have some good stuff for people to read, but it doesn't happen. 

 I start writing so many different post then when I go back to finish them compared to other blog posts I never find mine interesting enough to publish. Does anyone else have this problem? What do you do to get inspiration for writing posts? I haven't ever done a scheduled post anything I post is written about 10 mins before it is published. I would love to post everyday I just don't feel like I have the content.

No Recap Here...

I'm not one to recap much from the Holidays, you all know what happened...we hung out with family, opened presents, the ball dropped, someone else got engaged, and someone probably had a baby.

G did get engaged on New Years Eve I suppose I forgot to mention. Congrats G! You could go visit her new blog, if you wanted.  This blog only has room for single ladies sorry girl!

So instead  I'm linking up for Its Ok Thursday, since of course link ups are my fav since I don't have to be creative and come up with my own post.

Its Ok Thursdays
Its Ok...
That I didn't make any New Years resolutions. I know I need to drop some pounds and stop eating fast food, but who is 2013 to make me?

That I feel like I just want to hibernate for a while.  I just can't get enough sleep lately.

That I find blogging to be a break so I get kinda confused when I see people take a break from it like it's super stressful or something?

That I just stare at my computer when my coworker talks to me in hopes he will go away.

That I haven't even tried the new sewing machine I really wanted for Christmas. I just haven't had the energy to get it all figured out.

That I always am in that blogger funk and never know what to write.
