How this year shaped up

Did I mention I was heavily medicated to attend this wedding?

It feels like five lifetimes have passed since I wrote this post on 2/21/14 discussing my awesome, happy, wonderful agenda for the first half of 2014.  If anyone needed proof that I am not a psychic, there it is in writing, people. But despite the massive detour life took on 2/23/14, things have started to level out. And by 'level out' I mean 'get fucking busy' again. In a good way, though! I legitimately haven't had time to blog and it hasn't been because I've lived in a hospital or been 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

4th of July Weekend Misadventures

Ali and Alicia @ The Correct Venue.

So this one time, I bought tickets for a show at Hard Rock and totally thought it was at House of Blues, and I didn't realize my mistake until we were parked and eating dinner at the wrong venue. Okay yeah that time was last Thursday night, the show was Lindsay Stirling, and after laughing about my total and complete blonde moment, Vince, Ryan, Alicia and I booked it from HOB to Hard Rock and caught the last 6 songs of the show. It was totally worth the effort because Lindsay Stirling was Continue Reading

The New and Improved Guestroom!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There is no way anyone is going to be able to truly appreciate this post, these photos, or the insane amount of work it took to get this room back to habitable status after Joey moved out. But damn if I'm not gunna try. So, before Joey moved in, my guestroom looked kinda like this: I say "kinda" because we donated the purple headboard to friends and upgraded the bed to a queen. But otherwise, it pretty much looked like that. Then Joey moved in, we added a desk to the room and put Continue Reading

I can officially check “See Cher Perform Live” off of my bucket list!

We totally matched.
And... yeah I was already rocked by this point.

You read the headline! That ish is real!! I SAW CHER, PEOPLE!!! See, what had happened was.... In early February I was on my way to work, sitting in the parking lot that is I4 in Downtown Orlando at 8:30am, when I saw the giant video screen on the side of the Amway Center advertise Cher coming to OUR little town in May. I was like "WHAAAAAT?!?" My first thought was "HOW THE EFF DID I NOT HEAR ABOUT THIS?!" Followed closely by "I HAVE TO CALL CODY!!!" Which was immediately followed Continue Reading

48 Hours in San Francisco

We hung out in the Haight Ashbury district and drank amazing rootbeer.

I will always remember this as the last time I truly laughed before my world fell apart. Daddy died only a few hours later.

You already know my Dad died while I was in San Francisco. You might also know that I was only there 48 hours before I had to come home after his very sudden (and still shocking, painful, devastating) death. But what you might NOT know is that, between the nearly non-stop calls with Daddy and Cari and Corey, and the 6 hours of travel time each way, I actually had a little bit of fun. We were in San Fran to visit our dearest friend Timmay who moved there 4 years ago. Every year Timmay comes Continue Reading
