Whoever I Am

My best friend said something the other day that made me realize why we are best friends (besides the obvious reason: our awesomeness). She said, "What you love makes up who you are."

She's deep. :)

So, here are a few things that make me who I am (whoever that is):

1. I love to laugh. And if you have no sense of humor, please take your "dry-ness" elsewhere. I don't want to be brought down by your uppity snide remarks or your lack of love for sarcasm. I want my ribs to hurt from laughing too much. But sometimes I think I'm the only one who thinks some things are funny. Note: My Pinterest board on the things that make me LOL.

2. I like tattoos. And I have three, with more on the way. I also think men with tattoos are very attractive. I do NOT like when people judge others who have tattoos.

3. I love 90's music.

4. I love kids. I truly do. I love mine the most (naturally lol). But I feel like I'm not a "normal" mother. I don't do "play dates." I do not consider a bunch of kids running around making a mess and being loud to be enjoyable lol. Does this make me horrible?

5. I love Harry Potter. And I have a secret; I just finished reading the series this year. But, better late than never right?

Oh, and I'm a wee obsessed now.

6. Speaking of HP, I'm a Young Adult book genre lover. Yes, I'm 23 years old and a mother, but a good book is a good book. The Hunger Games, Twilight Saga....I love them all.
P.S- If you are on Goodreads, you should add me!

7. I love to sleep. And that's one of the main thing's I miss from pre-children.

8. I love to run. I used to run all the time in high school. But since having kids, I feel like I don't have the time I would like to start running again.

9. I have always been self conscious. Always. Ever since I can remember. And I'm going to try my best to never ever let Kenzie feel that way. A child should never feel that she is not good enough.

10. Coffee gets me going every morning.

11. I'm pretty sure I have more online friends than real life friends lol.

12. I could possibly live in Hobby Lobby if they let me.

13. I'm very competitive. I hate to lose.

14. Blogging is sort of therapeutic for me. I'm not sure how many people read my blog but honestly, most of the time, I'm just writing to get it out of my system! I'm a much better writer than talker.

15. I was a teen mother. That's old news. But I think my kids saved my life.

16. When I was younger (and sometimes I still do), I would look out the window while riding in the car and when we would pass a woodsy area, I would always search for unicorns. I swear to you. :)

17. I suck at doing my makeup. I wish I could do pretty eye shadow colors like normal girls but I just derp out when it comes to applying them. :(

And you know what? I'm really not sure where I "belong" in this world or what category of human I would fall in.... I like big trucks, painted nails, glitter, basketball, going out with friends, reading, tattoos, baking, playing video games, crafting....where does that put me? Country-preppy-nerdy-crafty-sporty-partyer? LOL who knows! Because I sure don't.

Beale Street Memories

Memphis was so fun.

I can't even describe how fun it was!  It was my first time on Beale Street but certainly NOT my last, now! 

Me and my BFF, Raven
Attire. Got my shirt from Rue21. The belt was mine. :)  

We really only went to two places: Wet Willie's (I got a Strawberry slushy drink. YUM!), and Club Superior (a kareoke bar.) Club Superior is where we pretty much stayed at all night. It was so fun. Doug and I sang "Jackson" by Johnny & June and we got compliments. :P I feel special.
Raven and I sang "I Kissed A Girl" LOLOLOL!!! :D

Doug got us singing on video but I made him swear to keep it on his phone!!! >.<

lol...I always make this "smirk" when I've little much to drink?

See....there's the smirk. 

The next day, we went to Kooky Canucks for lunch. And got this:

It's called the King Kookamonga. 
And it's 6 pounds.

Six pounds of ridiculousness.

Between the four of us, we only ate half.

I reallllllllly wanna go back for Memphis in May. But only if the lineup is good. :)

Oh, and I want more tattoos. Now.

Friggin' Friday

I got a new tattoo two weeks ago and forgot to post about it! hurt. 

I almost passed out. Not joking. I guess for some reason, I though the shoulder would hurt less than the hip bone. Wrong-o poopie pants.

Come to find out, the shoulder blade is EXTRA sensitive! Yay.

Oh well, at least it was only a 15 minute session lol. Sixteen minutes would have been my breaking point. :P

I love it though. It's kind of like my motto.

So anyways, it's Friday. Thank you baby Jesus!!

I've got a Rotisserie Chicken cooking in the crockpot right now for dinner. Tomorrow will be shopping for an outfit to wear to Beale Street next weekend (and possibly a much needed hair cut/color)! YAYYY! And Sunday, my Nana is cooking lunch for mine and Doug's birthday. She's making my favorite, chicken rotel, and Doug's favorite, roast. Yeah, she's awesome like two different meals:)

Oh, and I'm on an Etsy crave right now. I want everything. Especially these:
