Phone Photos

Good Morning!

Happy Wednesday to you. Half way through the week, only the end half to go!

Today I thought I would share some random pictures in my phone that I found when I was looking through them the other day. They always make me laugh, because there is typically a funny story behind it.

Oh, but I have to show you the inside of my Thin Mint cake.

And it was a HUGE hit!!!!! Everyone told me how much they enjoyed it! I would HIGHLY recommend the recipe! I was told it was nice & minty- made you feel like you just brushed your teeth! Eat cake & have fresh breath. Win win. (although, if I ever make it again, I will not add the 1/2 banana. I know it was used to add moisture to the cake, but it really didn’t need it…and I could taste it. I think I only tasted it because I knew it was in there. I asked my co worker & she said she had no idea there was banana in it.)

That would be our living room floor. This is what I walked into the other night when I got home from work. Do you see all of those papers on the table?? Those are Craig’s previous March Madness brackets from prior years. & the newspaper on the floor…that’s USA Todays- from this year & prior years. They always have a special Monday edition for March Madness after Selection Sunday. You probably thought I was kidding about his March Madness craziness. 😉

To add to his craziness, I made him this cake on Selection Sunday night. Please do not laugh at my HORRIBLY drawn basketball. I don’t even know what that is!!! Haha 🙂

Yep, I have to admit, I totally fall for the marketing ploys. They made chicken nuggets in the shape of dinosaurs?! I’m all over them. How cute are they?? And they say that they are only for kids. Ha. Who are they kidding! Oh, and they are actually really good! We had them the other night for dinner, and they are all white meat. (like it says) I was impressed. I’ll definitely buy them again 🙂

birthday cake oreo

Liz, I found them. Yep, the limited edition BIRTHDAY CAKE OREOS. Did I buy them? No. Why? Because I would of immediately eaten the whole bag…and we are trying to go a bit easy on the sweets lately. But I have heard they are pretty fabulous.

fingers

Those would be my fingers in RARE form. I always always always have them painted. ALWAYS. I just think my fingers look weird without any nail polish on them. Actually I think I just have weird hands, almost like man hands. Ew. Even though my fingers are small (my ring size is only a 4 & 1/2), I still don’t like my hands. I guess we all have something we don’t care for on our bodies…one of mine is my fingers. 😉

And because I showed you that, I thought I would show you ONE of my collections of nail polish:
nail polish

This is just the downstairs collection, there is another one upstairs. Eek! I love nail polish. I also have a habit of buying a new color almost every week. And all of the new spring colors came out- I’m loving all of the pastels & brights!!

Well, have a good day! Good news: NEW ABC shows tonight!! WHOOHOO! Can’t wait for The Middle & Modern Family 😀

My Weird Quirks

Ready for another post about ‘why I’m odd?!’ 😉

I always think these are fun to write because I love learning little quirks about other people, and these are just some of mine. That’s part of why I like blogging & reading other blogs. Those things that make us unique are what makes laugh fun! (at least in my opinion 🙂 )

1.One of my favorite things to do is to see high high I can get my savings at the grocery store. It’s like a weekly challenge for me. See this receipt below:

publix

I was SO proud of myself!! $52.89 in savings!!!! I feel like I outsmarted Publix! Haha! I’m a HUGE coupon clipper, (not like those crazy people in that coupon show- they are just a bit too much for me!) and I make sure that I always check the local ads before I go grocery shopping. My favorite thing about Publix is that they have Buy One Get Ones each week..and what makes the BOGOs even better is when I have a coupon for something that is BOGO. Can’t beat that deal!

2.Another thing lately is that I cannot stop eating these:

clementines 2

That above is my MOUNTAIN of clementine’s. It’s hard to tell, but that is a stack of 4 of them! These clementine’s are the BEST. They are perfect right now. Nice & flavorful! I also think the name is adorable- Cuties🙂

clementines

3. Ever felt like you were addicted to a food?? Well, I am ADDICTED to Goldfish. No, seriously, I am. It’s bad. Craig knows it & he just accepts it. Thank goodness! 😉 The other day when I went to Publix they happened to be buy one, get one. Well, guess how many bags I bought?? SIX. Yep, 6. Do you believe me now when I say addicted 😉

goldfish

And that is one of their new flavors ^^ chocolate chip. You HAVE to try them…and then you will be addicted too 😉 You can actually taste the chocolate chips in them. YUM!

4.The other day I was looking through my camera & noticed these random pictures of shoes. Apparently I enjoy taking pictures of the tops of my shoes. Random, right?!

Don’t these shoes kind of look like the wicked witch of the west shoes??

red heels

Eeek! Didn’t notice that until I saw this picture. I think I’ll put those shoes in the BACK of the closet for now 😉

I also saw this picture of my hot pink shoes:

shoes

I absolutely love these shoes. I wish I could wear them everyday…but I might get some funny looks!

5. I have a pet betta fish at work. His name is Webb. (For Lardarius Webb, my favorite Raven 🙂 ) It’s fun having a fish on my desk. Sometimes I just sit there and move my finger back & forth in front of him & then he gets all puffed up- like in the two pictures below. He’s a feisty little guy!
Webb webb2

But his tail is really pretty! Side note: It is so hard to take a picture of a fish!!!

6. Speaking of pets, look at what my co-worker found the other day when he was out walking:
turtle 2

Isn’t it adorable??? He just saw it sitting on the side walk & decided to pick it up because it is SO small. He actually almost stepped on it, so he thought someone else might.

Here is his size compared to my finger:

turtle

He’s about the size of a quarter. We set up a little temporary house for him until he could take him home & get a real tank. (have I told you how much I love my job?? We always have the most random things happen 🙂 )

7. I have always worn my hair straight for YEARS. (like this picture below)

nye

But recently I picked up a curling iron. I thought I would just try it out. (I’ve never been good with curling my hair)  It might be hard to see in the picture, but I just curl it a little bit…just to give it some volume & I’m really liking it!

curley

I never thought I would like my hair any other way…but I guess it pays to branch out a bit sometimes.

Was this post random enough for you?! 😉 Hope you enjoyed getting to know me a bit better…& some of my strange quirks. Enjoy your Thursday!!- remember it’s almost Friday!

What’s your favorite Goldfish flavor?
Favorite fruit?
Do you have any pets?

Picky Pants

I think we all have our certain quirks. Weird things that just make us..well, us!

I happened to notice a few of them lately, and they just made me laugh. Just for your own humor, I thought I would share these quirks. Maybe you do the same things?? Or it’s quite possible that I am just a weirdo.

1. I will only buy ONE brand of hair spray. & only once TYPE of hairspray from that brand.
product-large

Tresemme Extra Firm Control. Yep, the ONLY kind I will buy. I have tried all different kinds, from the expensive stuff (around $20) to the super cheap stuff. (Like Suave) But, nope I keep coming back to this brand. I love it; it doesn’t leave my hair weighed down..and it does not make it all chunky. & the best part is it’s only $4.

2. I have an excuse for every.single.day of the week as to why I need to go to Starbucks for my coffee.
002
Monday: Well, I’m sure we can all figure this one out. Mondays SUCK. Plain & simple. Pretty good excuse, if I do say so myself. 😉
Tuesday: Ew. Tuesday. What a boring day. Nothing happens on a Tuesday, it’s not like a Wednesday, since Wednesday’s mean I’m half way through the week. I need something to cheer me up.
Wednesday: YAY! It’s hump day. But, oh wait…that means that I still have HALF of the week left. Yikes. Better get some caffeine to power me through this day.
Thursday: I love Thursday! Some of my favorite shows come on Thursday nights. Better get Starbucks to make sure I stay awake for those shows. (mind you I’m drinking this coffee at 8am, how in the WORLD is it going to help me at 8pm?!)
Friday: WOOOHOO! It’s Friday. I made it through the week. I deserve a treat. (treat = coffee) And don’t a MILLION people out there celebrate Friday with a Starbuck’s coffee?! I can’t be left out, I have to get mine too.
Saturday: believe it or not, Saturday is the LEAST likely day that I will get Starbucks. I am always up way before Craig, so I just typically make a cup of coffee in the Keurig (& it’s usually a Starbucks K-cup) while I wait for him to get up. BUT, if I do happen to head to Starbucks, I totally have a reason 😉  –> It’s the WEEKEND!!! That in itself is a good reason!
Sunday: Sunday is the day that I get Starbucks for Craig & I. He loves his special ‘Sunday coffee.’ I think I secretly started going to Starbucks every Sunday so that I could get coffee.
star (LOVE the S-bux Valentine’s cup!)

Umm, I think I have an addiction. But I can guarantee you that I have an excuse for my addiction 😉

3. I like adding the word ‘pants’ to the end of names (people, pets, whoever) & to adjectives. (hence the title of this blog) Examples include: picky pants (most used), pretty pants (& I don’t mean when I’m describing actual pants 🙂 ), Holly Pants (not referring to my own self though), and many others…but you have probably had enough of all of this pants talking.

4. I realize this is such a typical girl thing. But I love shoes. I have way too many pairs. & I can’t stop buying them. I love all of the new colors for the upcoming season. All of the cute pastels & bright colors.
Prime example:
shoes

I’m in l.o.v.e.
The good thing about my shoe addiction is that most of them only cost between $15- $45. I’m not big into buying a bunch of designer shoes. (well, unless you think Jessica Simpson is designer. Her shoes are my favorite)

5. I like my water EXTRA cold. I always have to have a TON of ice in it. I feel like the colder it is, the more I drink. I’m sure it’s all mental 😉
ice-water-6 ice ice baaaaaaaby!

6. I’m a picker. I pick at everything. Scabs, pimples, nail polish, etc. Any of that. It’s kind of gross, but I can’t help it. Lucky for you, the one thing I don’t pick is my nose 😉

7. Speaking of picking…I’m OCD about cleaning my face & moisturizing. I asked ‘Santa’ (aka Craig) for a Clarisonic Mia for Christmas.
clarisonic-mia-lavender

I adore this thing. I HIGHLY recommend one. I have noticed a HUGE difference in my face. Less breakouts (if any), fewer blackheads (gross!) & just overall much more soft.
Well, I use this at least twice a day..and then I moisturize at night. Wanna know what I use for moisturizer? (& I swear by it!)
300

Yep, good ol’ fashioned Vaseline. It’s the best! Wanna see fine lines disappear?? Try this!!!! (& it’s SUPER cheap. Way better than paying like $70 for some name brand stuff!)

8. I get really annoyed when people don’t replace the last roll of toilet paper or paper towels. Drives me nuts! (& it happens all of the time at work. Grr!)
paper towel roll

9. I’m not a big flower person, but I LOVE sunflowers. Like really love. So I guess that kind of makes me a flower person..?

Heard enough of my strange ways?! 😉
Please tell me you can relate to at least one of them.
