Sometimes I Ramble..

The Versatile Blogger Award!

This past week I have been absolutely swamped. Your comments get emailed to my phone, and believe me they have been keeping me going all week. They have also made me feel like I've missed so much by not reading all of your blogs; I have some catching up to do!

While I was away, Melissa at Bless This Voignier Nest whose blog I absolutely love to read, nominated me for this award! So here it goes:

The rules for this award are as follows:

1. Nominate 15 Fellow Bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award

2. Add an image of the Versatile Blogger Award

3. Thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link to their site.

4. Share 7 completely random facts about yourself.

5. Include this set of rules.

6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination.
7 Random Facts About Me:
-I love mexican food. In fact, I am craving it right now just talking about it and it's seriously 8 a.m. #fatgirlproblemz
-One of my biggest pet-peeves is when people chew anything with their mouths open. And I mean anything. 
-I love to cook and try new recipes, but I never abide by the exact measurements. Either I eyeball it or add to my desired tasting. I enjoy breaking the rules :)
-Just like Melissa, I too am obsessed with The Golden Girls. If I were to be abandoned on a desert island and could only watch one TV show for the rest of my life, that would be it.
-I really do have a shopping problem. I "don't have the money" to buy anything yet I will go all week on an empty tank with my light on and still find a way to afford a new dress? not sure how I do this.
-I still have the idea that I will marry a Prince Charming one day. I know the film industry is a big joke an they make guys out to be absolute heroes, and I do understand that this is not real life. However, in the back of my mind I have the image that one day I will out looking a hott mess and some beautiful guy will sweep me off my feet. A girl can dream, right? ...right?
-It may be a bit scary, but I seriously do talk to myself. I even do it out loud a lot of times. This past week  I was getting out of my car and didn't think anyone was around, so I was making a joke to myself (out loud of course) and I look over and some guy is looking at me like I was on drugs. Embarrassing?
Thank you Melissa! :)

Time to Spare

Even though this title is totally not true, for some reason I am not even bothered by the fact that I have a long night of homework ahead. I'm casually sitting on my bed, reading through blogs and decided I needed to share my Easter pictures with you all! 

But first.. 

I bought this top today from Fedora. Sadly, my price tag was a bit higher, but I didn't realize the price difference until I just looked it up to show you guys. Anyway, I bought the turquoise one..and it is realllly cute on! I wasn't sure about it at first but I already had a million outfits put together in my mind so when I tried it on and realized how cute it was, I just had to have it. 

Secondly, a new thing I've been on this week:

I've started adding a little more weight training to my workouts and boy am I sore! I love it though! I've started to add Vanilla protein powder to my smoothies and its delicious! Here is the recipe. 
Yum yum! 

A quick Easter recap in pictures:

The Easter Bunny did good!!!

Seriously became my addition while I was home. These are the BEST jellybeans!

Grandmother riding my bicycle!
My baby cousin, Sierra

Our desserts.. this was before the other two were added!

Sadly, I lost the egg hunt this year. Sierra won.

Hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!

The Liebster Blog Award!

Well, as I am sitting at work procrastinating this huge project that is due in a week, I got two emails that Emily Ruth and Jasmine have nominated me for the Liebster Award! They are both such sweet girls and have great blogs! Be sure to check them out! I've been slacking on the blogging lately because of everything I have going on, but this award makes me so happy!

I have stolen the instructions from Jasmine..

The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award is for up-and-coming bloggers (200 followers or less) that you think deserve recognition for their fabulous blogging abilities.
Here's how this award process works...

Each nominee should:
Choose five blogs to give the Liebster Award to.
Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
Post the award on your blog.
List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites.
Leave a comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.
Share five random facts about yourself.

1. I am secretly becoming a health freak. I know.. one of "those." Don't get me wrong, I will still gobble up a brownie and some tortilla chips, but I have really learned a lot and have changed the way I eat recently!

2. PB is my life. I could seriously eat peanut butter for every meal, every day. I know it kind of doesn't count to put two facts about eating.. but whatever. My favorite is Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter. So delicious... in smoothies, on apples, pretzels, celery, fruit, or just my finger. Yum Yum!

3. I was in a pageant once. Yep, sure was. My first one ever and out of 170 girls I was second runner up..not too shabby, huh? OH, I also secretly want to be Miss Universe. (hehe :) )

I'm in the silver dress

4. Math is my absolute worst subject, always has and always will be. Reading and writing on the other hand, is my best. I will write you papers all day long. In fact, I've taken 5 English classes in college so far, and I haven't had anything lower than an A on any of my papers! (My moment of glory)

5. My recent obsession has been with tops with the backs cut out. Still classy, but somewhat sexy.

The girls I nominate are:

Ok, back to work. Can't wait to read everyone's answers :)

Happy Hump Day!

Happy Hump Day friends!

We are half-way through the week, and for me the next two days fly by. Then, IT'S THE WEEKEND! Wooohooo! I have to apologize for the lack of posting recently. this is my life for the next two weeks, and this is how it has been the past two weeks:


 So, I must apologize. It seems like all of my teachers realize we only have two and a half weeks left, so they need to throw as much on me as possible. Do you feel that way?

I've been on a picture kick, maybe because I got an IPHONE! :) I would love any tips and advice you have for me! I am still figuring everything out and I'm almost 100% positive I have done everything the hard way (like emailing pictures from my phone one at a time to myself so I can download them on the computer to share with yall..there has to be an easier way, right?)

For now, I have some of my April Photo Challenge pictures..

5. (Will post later)
6. (Will post later)
7. (Will post later)

8. Inside my wallet:

The best thing in here has to be my TBMF ticket!  Are any of you lovely ladies going!?!?
10. (Will post later)
11. Where you ate breakfast

At work. I work on Wednesdays at 7:30, so I bring my breakfast with me!

Can't wait to catch up on all of your posts! Hope you all are having a fabulous week so far :)

April Photo Challenge

When I started blogging, I saw all of these photo challenges each month, but I was always a day or two late. Last week, I stumbled across someone else who pinned this on Pinterest, and it reminded me!! So, I have been able to get a picture so far for the month of April and I'm super excited. Here they are:

Day 1: dont judge-I was busy doing homework!

Day 2: I snapped this walking across campus. They looked so much prettier in person. They remind me of growing up at my Granny and Papa's during the Spring.

Day 3: My Glamour Magazine and VS package :) :) :) :) 

Day 4: This one was hard. These are a few of the special people in my life who make me happy: 

Sierra, my baby cousin

Tim and my Granny

My Grandmother and Papa-so sweet. 

and of course, my Momma. 

Is anyone else doing the April Photo challenge? I'd love to see yours!
