The Mother Effin’ FEELS

Six months since I lost my Daddy. Three months since I started therapy. One month since I brought Mia home. And about two weeks since I noticed I was FEELING things again. Feels. So many feels. When I say "noticed I was feeling..." I mean the following: I feel something,... but I don't know what. I feel angry and am not sure if it's justified. I feel sad, and I absolutely know that's justified. I feel happy! Like, carefree! Now I feel guilty for feeling happy... But how Continue Reading

Goodbye Moet, Hello Belle!

So weird yet cool looking!

Sooo.... I BOUGHT A NEW CAR! :) Moet the Mazda 3 You guys know the story of how I got my car, Moet the Mazda 3, right? It was Fall 2007, I had just graduated from UCF, and my stepbrother needed a car. My Dad offered to pay off my Cavalier and give it to him if I wanted to get something new, so I took him up on the offer and used my graduation money to buy a 2007 Mazda 3 iTouring. I did weeks of research online and when I went out to buy a car, I knew EXACTLY which car I wanted. And Continue Reading

And this is why…

I'm THE Luckiest Girl Ever. This voicemail I got back in February 2013. I finally got around to uploading it after Wordpress finally got around to embedding a media player. Of course we didn't make it to Vegas or that show, but that voicemail right there - friends that call and leave those kinds of messages - that's what life is all about. :) Continue Reading

Five Things I’m Feelin’ Right Now

Grass, seating, mulch, yard art, and my beautiful little Daddy-birthday-bloom.

Every once in awhile I get an urge to write about totally random stuff I'm loving. These posts end up as snapshots in time and are some of my favorite to go back and read. So while life is totally freakin' nuts right now, and about to get EVEN MOAR NUTS when Mia goes home, there are some totally random things I'm feelin' at the moment. Hemlock Grove Season 2: Yes I am totally addicted to this Netflix series, weird and supernatural though it may be. Vince and I discovered the first season Continue Reading

Five Months Later

All of us, standing together, on Daddy's birthday.

February 20th my Daddy called an ambulance to take Mia to the hospital. Her flu symptoms were just too bad, and he was just too sick, to go through standard doctor or urgent care routes. Almost exactly five months to the day later, July 18th, I'm going to be bringing Mia home for the first time. I wrote about so much of it in the first couple of months. I don't know how I did it, how I found the time even. But I'm so glad I did. The facts have gotten so fuzzy... the raw feelings and Continue Reading

Hair in the Last Year

Lonnnnng ass hair, June 2nd, 2013

Yup. It's time for another hair-post... So, I'm an Aries. If that means what every Astrology website says it means, then I'm impatient, prone to changing my mind, a pack leader, and someone who jumps into life with enthusiasm. I think the biggest proof of that theory is the frequency with which I change my hair styles, cuts, and colors. I am never afraid of making big changes with my hair - not crazy changes, mind you. Sadly, I have a job and can't go too crazy. But I'm very much a "meh, Continue Reading
