Wired for Wranglers?

I'm sorry but Country Singers shouldn't paint on their pants...
What happened to the days when cowboys and country stars wore nice wranglers or cinch jeans?

I was watching Ellen today and just didn't care for Luke Bryan's jeans... granted im the loser at home on the couch but still... come on .. your not Mick Jagger or some other 80's star in Tights

Maybe its just me but

 Is way more attractive than


Just sayin... 
maybe its in my genes... 
I could just be wired for wrangers...

Not me Monday


Mckmama- Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to < target="_blank" href="">her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week. This hopefullly won't be my last "not me" Monday post.

I did not have an interview at a lingerie shop today, nope not me. I also didn't do great at the interview because I could sale to the "average or plus size customers" HAHA I also did not feel guilty for even interviewing at this place, but I could be a light anywhere I work. I think the bird and the dog are tired of me  "shining my light from the house"

I  did not cry for about 3 hours today. I feel like I'm in a stupid depression hurts commercial- please don't freakout about this statement.......if you know me you know my hormones are crazy wacked and im totally okay.

I most Definallty didn't come home from the gym and eat more double stuffed Oreo. Maybe I'll go back in a few hours!

Overall its been a not so great Monday! Things are looking up though!

Cheekys' Brow Blog!

Cheeky's brow blog!

I was super excited to read this on cheeky's blog the other day! Much to my surprise finally my bushy eye brows are "in". Check it out and book online to get your eyebrows looking great!


Tweeze No More!

Looking younger might have just gotten easier without all of the hassle. No more sitting in the car tweezing your brows in the mirror because that’s where you get the best light. Leave those hairs alone because lush, bushy eyebrows are “in”! Let your brows enhance your eyes and face naturally. Sometimes having a sharp, precise shape to your brows looks a little harsh and may make you look a little more aged. Instead, opt to have a softer, more natural look this fall and make your own conclusions. Don’t get me wrong, you still need to groom your brows so they don’t grow out of control and turn into a uni-brow, just manage them appropriately.

Yards and Bones


My mom always says "you don't hate anything, you strongly dislike it"
 well I really hate Yard work.    

I've had this daunting list of things to do to help out my aunt.
<<<<<<< read with a smile on your face >>>>>> 
I was informed that this seemed rude. I love living here and because I'm a total loser at the moment I really don't mind having things to do, I even said "make me a list" I realize that "taking me to the grocery store" is just as annoying as yardwork. I just wanted to clarify that this in no way was negative against my aunt or her list, I'm acutally in hopes that she will leave me another one next week :)
I've beasted on the list but left all the yard work for the last day thinking maybe it i wished hard enough it would go away.  The second to the last thing on the list says "rake out grass ect out of flower beds..." I started it the other day but it just made me so mad... its not grass its 2 ft long weeds with roots and annoyance. so I worked for about an hour day before yesterday and just made a mess. I set my alarm this morning to get up early and work while it was cool so I couldn't use the fact that Im allergic to heat ( like my mom) as an excuse. After about 40 mins of work its still a MESS. I HATE YARD WORK.

Speaking of yard work, my aunt and I majorly worked on the back yard a few weeks ago. It looks great! Jingles had been spending more time outside lately so I though he was just happy to have his yard back without being eaten by leaves.  I had a weird day yesterday so last night I was super excited to watch Grey's and lay on the couch ( even though I'm jobless I don't lay on the couch all day ) anyways I was laying here and see Jingles come in with a GIANT BONE. It was about a foot long which is way Giant for Jingles. I yelled and got a towel picked it up and send a picture to my aunt. I wanted to make sure this wasn't his "long lost favorite toy" but deep down I knew that he was no way allowed to have this.

If you know me you know I watch way to much TV, one of my favorite shows being BONES. If you've seen bones you know they start the same way every time, freaky things happen and you find bones.
While freaking out with my aunt on the phone I kept telling her if Jingles brings in a skull I was not going to be a happy camper! Of course she calmed me down but still...... I dreamed of bones in the yard all night. All I could think about was raking in the yard and finding a dead body.....

So If you can tell me what kind of bone this is it would help greatly with my metal state :)
I know its not a human one but you have to admit, you might freak out too!

Imoff to do the last thing on my list- "Search and Destroy all  McDonalds/Sonic cups!" My aunt is a funny funny lady

Biggest Glee Loser and one more wedding!

Things have been so weird right now!

The job search is going alright..... Ive had a few interviews and leads... I know God knows what he's doing.

I'm currently watching the biggest loser trying my hardest not to go to the fridge for some munchies....
I didn't get to go to the casting call in austin though I seriously thought about it... I know I can do it at home!
Speaking of weight loss I got on the scale yesterday and enjoyed what I saw! being 249 was exciting! it may be just one lb but its still under 250!

Glee was super exciting this evening! Always so uplifting and encouraging me to sing again!
Speaking of singing! I went and checked out Austin Harmony Chorus last night! It was pretty fun!

Stephanie's wedding is in about a month  so Im super looking forward to going home and seeing people! I may even have a plus one- just a friend but still it would be nice to not go to another wedding alone!

Tears of Awesomeness

If you know me you know I'm emotional.

If you've been around me in the past year you know that my emotions mixed with my hormones = crazy tears

I've done nothing this week but lay around and cry.
I did go for a walk a few times..... But came back and proceeded to cry lol

Tonight while watching the Emmys I cried again! Melissa McCarthy won best lead actress in a comedy for mike and Molly! It was refreshing to see her with all those beautiful tiny actresses :)

Austin is such a big city but is quite lonely sometimes!

Who cries at the Pride Parade?

I went to the Pride Parade with my aunt on Sat. She supports me in everything I do so why not go with her? 
We were having a grand ol time clapping and cheering... I was trying to figure out out I could take lessons on how to be hot by MISS Drag Queen Texas... some of those men/women were way prettier than me! Then I see a sign that said " we fought in silence but served with pride." Immediately the tears start falling... I of course try to hide/stop it and by that time my aunt had noticed and smile and gave me some water. I said " What straight girl cries at a pride parade?" " I can't believe I'm crying" Something inside me just churned! I wanted to go thank each and ever one of those men and women in uniform! They were fighting to keep us safe and free and had to lie about who they are. it just baffles me. I thought about my aunt who was in the arming, lying saying I'm straight when everyone knows shes not..... how crazy

Later that night I was at dinner with my aunt and her friends when I said something about church. A friend asked me if I was religious.... I hate that question, because the definition is so different to everyone... so I just said "yes. I'm a Christian" suddlenly the whole bar was staring at me... it felt like an hour but was only about 30 break the silence I started laughing and said but I'm not going to hit you over the head with a bible... I'm not a bible thumper, then my aunt jumped in and everyone laughed. I love my aunt's friends. They are always so welcoming and include me with out making me feel like the "straight one" but in that moment I felt like I had a glimpse of what it must feel like for them sometimes. To be so judged left me feeling vulnerable and bare. I could never live my life like that... it would drive me crazy...
Which brought me back to the parade and the people walking in it and maybe why my heart hurt for them but in a oddly happy way. Believe what you want but I felt like God gave me my tender heart for a reason and allowed me to feel something special for the men in women who are still out there protecting our country while serving in silence.

Today stunk!

so I've been feeling like crap lately.... My female issues are back and causing a great deal of pain so I haven't felt like doing much besides going to work...

I decided I needed to get out of the house so I called my new friend Jade and we decided to meet at Magnoila Cafe. Then my buddy Jaron called and let me know about his show downtown so I thought hay. might as well go out and see him after I met up with Jade.... WRONG! On my way out of the restaurant my mouth started to itch and I felt my neck get hot. Then I started feeling queasy... by the time I got home I had a full blown rash on my neck everything and everything itched. After 30  mins of searching and talking to my mom I finally found the benedryl and settled in for the night. .... Then the vomiting started. I couldn't keep down anything not even water.... after getting up and down most of the night Jingles and I just made a pallet in the bathroom floor and passed out. I tend to act like I'm 5 yeaers old when I'm sick.......

Needless to say it was a rough night! I needed to go mail a package to Mr. and Mrs. Bridges in ALASKA but didn't feel good so I thought I'd do it online... Wrong....
after 2 trips and one major hissy fit in the post office I finally got back home and proceeded to go right back to sleep.

Then I get a phone call from work. YAY I thought... they need me to come in.  There hasn't been much opportunity for hours this week and Lord knows I need the money. Basically it was them saying unfortunately they no longer need me but that someone from the front office would be in contact sometime this month if they were hiring again. These people slightly filled me full of crap with allowing me to think I could move to the front office. I know its not their fault...... Big company bought out small company junk... they even fired a woman who had been there 15 years....

Today just stunk.

I'm going to go cry.

I would normally go eat....
but I'm broke and sick.

job interviews here we come!

My Best Friend's Wedding- Abby

When I started 5th grade I was excited about one thing.... being in my moms school. Never in a million years did I think that the skinny blonde girl at the desk next to me would be my best friend.

Abby and I had a great childhood full of food, nsync, dance parties and most importantly for me - MAKEOVERS.

We were evening going to go to the NYSYNC concert together  in jr high but sadly she got mono from the water fountain at tennis camp..... seriously she wasn't kissing anyone it was the water fountain :( I ask my mom if Justin would autograph a picture for her because she was so sick.... mom said she doubted we could find him....Maybe If we had she would be marring him in stead of matt....


We stayed close through most of school but  grew apart in the highschool days. Lucky for me I knew she would always be there for me no matter what. She came to most of my shows and even did her time out at the ag farm with me, and if you know Abby that wasn't her thing back then. She would come to my defense when ever needed... shes smaller but 10 days older than me and a spitfirr, so its like a big sister. One of the memories I have was of her screaming and cussing out a friend at sonic cause he was rude to me, to this day he is still scared of her.

Abby and I lived in Austin for awhile at the same time. It was during this time that we grew  the closest. Personally it was the worst times in my life and Abby was right there to hold my hand and feed me Guacamole and Alfredo.  Growing up was so hard but it was made easier having her there.

Abby and Matt blessed me with a laptop when it was time to go to Australia and at that point I new she would marry him. Apparently it was his idea and any Man who loves abby so much he loves her friends was the one. He made her laugh like I've never seen her laugh and we all know abby can laugh.

I realize that I'm writing like shes on her death bed or something..... I know this is a new beginning!

Hopefully I can make it through the day without crying and ruining my makeup. Speaking of makeup...... I finally did it. 15 years later I applied my makeup by myself and it looked exactly how Abby did it. We were a little proud last night at the rehearsal dinner HAHA
