Thankful Thursday

always an abundance of things to be thankful for.


Lately I'm thankful for: 


Lunch bought by co-workers after being sick for a week. 



Snow Days


and endless hours curled up with Netflix & hot cups of tea. 



What are you thankful for?

Words of Wisdom

Thanks to my customers who lift me up, and the people who participate in the study solely because I'm "so nice".=


How is this so difficult? To just be nice. It's that plain & simple. There's an individual that I've encountered in my life the past year or so. When I met him he was so harsh, abrasive & well...rude.  You could tell he had such a chip on his shoulder and I made it my life mission to make this man smile. Simply by being nice. I wish I could portray the difference in this man now. People that have known him for years have commented that he's changed. For the better. They notice it when he's around me. It's simple. It all started with just a few nice words. If only the rest of the world would realize what a few nice words can do, we may live in a more peaceful place.

Confession: Sundy Best



My Confession:

 I'm a concert junkie. I have and will spend big money for tickets. It doesn't phase me. What's that saying?
Spend money on experiences not things!! Find your balance, make vacations extraordinary family time.

Why, yes. That's it! That's always been my motto in life. I've never been one to be materialistic, but by George you better believe if I can jump in on an adventure or "life experience" I'm ALL in. 

With that being said, I was cruising Ticketmaster one Sunday afternoon a few months ago when I saw a band coming to town that I had just really started to fall in love with. 

Date: February 13th.
My Thought: Happy Valentine's Day to me! 

Just because I'm single doesn't mean I can't celebrate Valentine's Day, right? Right! I knew you'd agree! 

The band is : Sundy Best. 

I know ya'll are probably like who in the heck is that? Please go check them out! They are amazing, have landed a video on CMT and well guys, they are from a small town in Eastern Kentucky! They are just some good ol' boys! 

The concert was at the Opera House here in town. I hadn't been there since elementary school. It's so beautiful! I love small venues because it just seems so personal. Enough of my rambling, enjoy the pics! Oh, and please let me know what ya think of them! They definitely have captured my heart. I love seeing people succeed doing something they love, especially so close to home! & the cool thing about these guys is they haven't lost their humbleness. They are just, like I said, good ol' boys from Kentucky. Okay, I'm shutting up now. Enjoy! 

My momma & I. 





And here's the hometown boys singing one of my favorite songs! Enjoy!

Kentucky Ya'll



Lately I've become a TV whore. No jokes, this is serious crap people. I'm the girl that NEVER watches TV. I'd much rather be outside, crafting a project, listening to music. Yep, pretty much anything other than watching tv. I get SO sick of the noise box well....making noise. I blame it on the discovery of Netflix. Holy batman, there's so much good shit that I've been missing! Oh, and that it's cold as balls outside, a FOOT of snow last week & then I became plagued with the flu.

Anyway, ya'll Kentucky was made PROUD tonight. Please don't break my heart and tell me you're not a fan of The Voice. If ya don't need me to list the reasons that it's such a GREAT show, these two heart throbs should make it well worth your time! 



Anyway, this girl made KY proud tonight by making it through. Team Blake, ya'll! Not that ya didn't need another reason to root for my future ex-husband! Move over, Miranda! 


I'm not sure she will win the whole thing, but I can't help but root for a local Kentucky girl!

xoxo,

Musical Monday ~ It Was Always You

Happy Monday, folks! After venturing to work for a few hours my boss sent my happy ass back home. I guess I can't blame him, I wouldn't want this crud either. But someone please take it from me! Plleeeeeaassseee! Okay, I'll stop. If I must. But really, please!? Ahhh....moving on.

I discovered this song on Spotify and it immediately made me think of him. The one man whom I can't shake no matter how I try. The man that somehow captured my heart without me even knowing. The man that drives me absolutely NUTS, yet makes me completely happy at the same time. And well,  I thought it was fitting that this be his ring tone. Maybe I should tell him....

Netflix & The Flu

As if last week being stranded in the house wasn't enough,  due to the "Snowmageddon" that hit Kentucky, why should it be a surprise that I got plagued with the flu for the weekend? 


It's been a hated love affair with my bed and the couch this weekend.

 I've binged on Netflix. 

Sons of Anarchy. He will definitely make a girl feel better!

New Girl. Seriously my new favorite find on Netflix!

And today I've watched back to back to back episodes of Sister Wives. Someone please help me! I can't turn away from this show.



Here's to hoping I feel better soon!

xoxo,

Happy Birthday, Mandie!


It's time to par-tay! This lady & fellow blogger (Badbrewpack) I met through another blogging site, and well daily conversations on Facebook while we should be working turned an "online" friendship into a real life friendship. One that very few people are lucky to have. Even though she's in "Yankee" territory & I'm in the South, there are very few days that I can say that have gone by that we've not spoken. She knows my deep & dark secrets, the funny hilarious stories, bad relationships & everything in between. We've cried, laughed, & even been a little crazy. I honestly don't know what I'd do without her. She's my rock, my go-to & well...my Best Friend.

Two years ago I was lucky enough to finally meet her & well this picture sums up our weekend PERFECTLY!


Happy Birthday, Mandie! I hope you have an amazing day! I wish I was closer to celebrate it with you!
