Airport Hell

The plane right home Monday was a nightmare.

The plane was delayed 3 hours and change, and going through security i was pulled aside!
I was patted down and my hands were tested for explosives.
Why did the lady pull me aside?
Because the drawstrings of my sweatpants were uneven. (Luckily shooting guns the day before didn't comeup with anything onthe test but i was scared!)

Not to mention finally getting back to NY after 9pm, baggage claim took forever.

Then my dads car battery died comming to the airport to pick us up.

When it was all said and done, and we went for a late snack at a diner... my boyfriend and I didnt walk into our apartment until about 12:30 in the morning.

Needless to say ive been exhausted since then, but it was totally worth every minute of it.
The memories made will last a lifetime ♡

Tennessee

My apologies for the long hiatus. I'm sure everyone is wondering whats going on. Nothing extreme going on other than my work hours got crazy and i really didnt have time to write. But i found a little time today to let you all in on a little secret!
I Cant wait to go on vacation and see my boyfriends mom and brother. I already have a printed out spread sheet of things i want to do and see in Tennessee.
We might not be able to do everything on the list but we did get a package deal to see Graceland, Stax museum, sun studio, american soul museum. So one day we will spend in Memphis and that will be really cool.
The only other big thing i want to do in this trip is go to the Jack Daniel's distillery.
Everything else on my list looks cool but to me its not an emergency to see on one trip.
I'm sure eventually we will visit his family is Tennessee again.
My brother already put in requests for beef jerky, bbq sauce and a special bottle from Jack Daniel's. Can't wait to write all about it!
See ya'll in a week or so! (Look im already writing like a southerner

Intoxicated driver

On the way home from Six Flags tonight, on the belt parkway my boyfriend and I got stuck behind someone who had to have been drunk or on drugs.
For over 10 minutes he was all over the road almost hit several cars passing him. My boyfriend was afraid to pAss him thinking this guy will crash right Into us.
I called 911 and I reported his car and his license plate #.
Normally I wouldn't do thAt, but this guy was swerving so bad almost driving in the middle of 2 lanes then flying to the other side and then back again.
I was afraid this asshole was going to kill someone.
Surprisingly enough my phone call made an actual difference and within 5-10 min the guy was being pulled over by a Unmarked cop car.
I did my good deed for the night.

Catch up

Since my last post I lost 5 lbs. I haven't been extremely strict with my diet and I still haven't really gotten around to legit exercising.
I find there are not enough hours in the day, and I'm back to working 6 days a week due to "busy season. I am SHOT when I leave work.... And I sleep late in the am because I'm just so tired.
Mind you my department is now basically doing the job of 3-4 departments at any given time of the day because we pick up the slack of other departments.
This past Saturday was a perfect example, I left work with my head spinning and a headache. My brain can only hold so much information at one time....
And none of us have seen a pay raise yet, just more work for us to do yet they want the call time to be shortened?? Makes no sense.
Friday I get to go for a biopsy at the doctor.....
Fun fun!

Dieting/ weight loss

So a few weeks ago I got weighed at the doctor and to my disbelief I have gained back all the weight I had lost a few years ago.
I don't know how I let myself go that route again and honestly the fact that none of my jeans fit anymore should have tipped me off....
But I'm keepin my "skinny jeans" at my parents house in the hopes that I will be able to once again she'd those pounds.
It was super traumatic for me too when I saw the scale I almost cried in the doctors office.
I had to go out and buy a few pairs of jeans that fit me, so discouraging.
My problem is, I LOVE food.....
I sometimes over eat because the food is so good I can't stop myself.
It's like a drug.
I've cut out fried foods and sweets which is also helping my skin complection.
I've cut down on carbs except natural carbs in fruits and vegetables.
I haven't stepped on the scale yet because I'm honestly afraid.
I've been trying to portion my meals with healthy foods but I don't know if I've had successful results yet because I haven't stepped back on the evil scale.

Does anyone have tips/tricks they use in order to lose weight?
Obviously safe suggestions preferred i can never be anorexic or bulemic.
Please comment below :)

Overwhelmed

I started to moove Saturday night. My bf came over to my parents house we had dinner, and we loaded up my car and his car with about 10 or so boxes. I had already been up since 6 am because I work 7am on Saturdays, it sucks.
Sunday I woke up late did a little unpacking, mind you I still at this point don't have all of my belongings in the new apartment. Around 2 on Sunday it started to snow.... And it was coming down hard.
My mom said, "why don't you stay one last night so you don't have to worry about going to work in the am?" I almost cried. Because my mom was being sincere. Her and my dad went to walmart and bought me a little 4 pack of the Monster energy drinks I like.
She even said I don't have to take all of my stuff in one shot they aren't going anywhere..... A few days prior she had said I need to hurry up and get my stuff out so she can use my room for storage. Mixed signals....
My dad said she was being nice because I'm actually leaving, I'm not just talking shit I'm actually packing up my stuff and leaving.
Not that I moved far, only 10-15 min from my parents house and I litterly pass their house daily on my way to work. It's just an adjustment, I am not used to not having my mom scream my name daily for either help with her iPad or something. I'm used to walking downstairs and seeing my dad at the kitchen table pretty my any time of day or night, or in the den watching tv.
It's just different, not in a bad way....
I  did have a few emotional breakdowns over the weekend and last night. I am not used to being on my own. I mean my bf is there, I'm just not used to not seeing my family daily.
I text my dad every day and were going over for dinner tonight, we went to dinner with them Monday too. It's just I guess a little overwhelming and I didn't think it would be.
Going to grab some more of my stuff when we go tonight for dinner. I never thought I'd miss my crazy family so much. And it's not like were never going to see them,
I guess I am just not very good with change.

Valentines Day

Valentines day it snowed, 
The weather in NY has been crazy!!
Bf & I decided to stay in, watch movies and snuggle on the couch.
He got me a bottle of wine, 
My favorite kind too; Moscato!!


For dinner, he made delicious Turkey nachos. 
They were to die for:


I told him i didn't want flowers they are a waste of money.
I told him if he wants to get me something, 
Get a card and write a little something & don't just sign your name.
He agreed.

To my surprise at work on Monday...

I was catching up on work because I wasn't in on Saturday, 
Some old guy comes to the front office door and asks for me.
I'm thinking to myself, 
"Who the hell is this?? I don't know you"
Turned out, the bf sent me flowers anyway!!


They took over half of my desk!
I had to shift over my phone and 2nd computer screen!

He also attached a very thoughtful card:


How did I get so lucky??!!
Pinch me, 
I think I am dreaming. 
<3


Jerry Only Misfits

Friday night we went to see The Misfits!!
Yes, we go to see them on Friday the 13th!!
They put on an awesome live show. 
My only gripe was that they played a lot of the songs much faster so it had a different melody/beat and they ended up shortening up a lot of their songs...
I am very happy to report though, they played Saturday Night at the correct speed & melody. 
The speed & melody of this song, basically makes the song so I'm glad they played it accurately or i would have been pissed.
They played dozens of my favorite songs, the only song i love they didn't play was Last Caress. 
But i was extremely happy they played a lot of older stuff, my favorite stuff. 

I got to meet the lead singer, Jerry Only!!:


I now have a picture with Michael Graves & Jerry Only- 
Their autographs too!!
I just need to track down Danzig....
Then i will have all singers from the Misfits autographs & pictures.

The bf had a good time too, It was his first concert!
I think mainly he had a good time because I was sooooo damn excited to be seeing like my all time favorite band.  
Minus the drunk idiot that was being super weird it was an awesome night.
Also ran into a few people i know which is always cool.

The Misfits

Next Friday for a early Valentines Day present, I am taking my boyfriend to see his first real concert.
Yes, the love of my life made it to 25 years hold and has not seen a real concert, crazy!!!
He has seen Ne-Yo at six flags once before he really got famous/popular.
We are going to see one of my all time favorite bands,
The Misfits!!
I have been listening to The Misfits since I was probably around 16 years old.
They have gone through some lead singers, but I will always be a fan.
Unless their lyrics get crappy...
I have not seen them live with Jerry Only as the singer yet, and I have heard mixed reviews regarding him as a live performer.
 
A few years back I was able to see old lead singer Michael Graves play an acoustic set at Club Europa in NYC, he was amazing. I loved his set so much, I was also a little drunk I cried when he played Saturday Night, one of my all-time favorite songs.
 
I hope I have a great experience seeing them live now as I did seeing Michael Graves a few years ago. I don't like being let down by live performances of bands that I Love.
 
I will Definitely make an entry after the concert which I keep psyching myself up for.
And its going to be a semi local show too, at The Paramount in Huntington NY.

My Birthday/ Vacation 2015

This year, I decided for once in my life I wanted to do something for my birthday.
I always used to do low key with close friends and family because it always snowed around my birthday, no one likes to drive in the snow.
 
Anyway, this year my boyfriend & I booked a 9 day cruise & my parents went too!
(Separate room from my parents obviously)
It was absolutely amazing! I had such a good time relaxing, laying out to tan, shopping, etc.
We went to- Puerto Rico, Saint Thomas, Saint Maarten & Tortola.
 
Night 1, at sea;
For my birthday present my boyfriend booked up a couples massage.
It was an amazing way to start off the vacation relaxing & getting those achy muscles taken care of.
 
Day 2, at sea;
A drunk guy who called himself Doc bought me a bottle of wine and talked my boyfriends ear off for well over an hour. He saw us sitting by the bar outside by the pool.
He was mildly harmless but he wouldn't shut up.
My boyfriend told me he was going to call him Chris Angel (like the magician guy that was on TV) because every sentence he started off with "ARE YOU READY??" just like the guy that was on TV.
 
The wine was really good though, I drank the whole bottle in an hour.
 
Day 3, Puerto Rico; My birthday!
We got free Frog Leg shots at Senor Frogs, yummy!
 
 
My birthday Dinner:
 
 
 
Day 4, Saint Thomas;
 
This beach is on the top 20 most beautiful beaches/views in the world,
Meagan's Bay.
We also did some shopping in Saint Thomas but I didn't take pictures.
 
Day 5, Saint Maarten;
 
 
Day 6, Tortola;
There was nothing to do in Tortola except go to the beach.
By the time we took a water ferry from the ship to the pier, and then a taxi to the beach we didn't have much time to spend there;
 
 
Day 7 & 8 were at sea coming home;
we got caught in that storm that hit back home in NY with snow.
The boat was rocking horribly and the waves according to the TV on the boat said 11-14 ft. waves.
But we made the best of it.
 
Day 9; Back home in the afternoon.
 
I could not have asked for a better 27th birthday/vacation.
<3

Master Chef

Did I mention how lucky I am to have such an amazing boyfriend??
Not only does he do his own laundry, and clean up after himself...
But he is also an amazing cook!
I honestly think he missed his calling being a chef.
But as he so well put it the other night,
"Chefs have terrible hours, I would never see you. I would be working only nights and weekends because that is when restaurants are busiest."
But also, my reasoning behind this decision to not be a cook-
Working as a chef in a restaurant, you have to make what they want you too cook.
The chef hardly ever decides what he wants to cook.
Menu items for the most part are so cliché.
I like freedom cooking, experimenting.
These are a few things he has made for me lately:
 
 
Wontons with cream cheese, crab and scallions:
(The second batch was made with sour cream crab and scallions because we ran out of cream cheese, just as yummy and flavorful.)
 
 
Spare ribs with bbq sauce &
Mild buffalo wings tossed in franks red hot & butter.
 
 
(I had ranch on the side of mine to dip my wings in. I hate blue cheese.)
 
Is your mouth watering yet looking at this delicious food??!!
 
I am the luckiest lady :]

Men vs. Boys

1. A boy will care about his satisfaction first-
A man will to the best of his ability satisfy his woman first, then worry about himself. I mean this in all aspects from sex- household chores.

2. A boy will make excuses to avoid doing things he doesn't want to do-
A man will be upfront, weather you like it or not. He will tell you he doesn't want to do something instead of dancing around something. Also a real man will more then likely always help you permitting he has the time and the ability to.

3. A boy will ditch you to chill with his homies, and when his homies ditch him for bitches.... You are  supposed to drop what you are doing to be with him.... When it's convenient for him-
A man will never ditch you, a man will want to bring you around his friends and family, as you do the same. As far as bitches - a man won't associate with boys that's demoralize women.

4. A boy will hide behind anger and rude comments. He doesn't want confrontation but sure as hell starts it up by ignoring your texts and phone calls, and not say why he's mad-
A man will tell you right off the bat what is bothering him, sit you down and discuss the issue with you. A man faces a problem head on and makes it a point to talk to out and solve it or compromise.
A man never let's his woman go to bed angry or upset.

5. A man never lies to his woman, even a white lie.... Because he knows if she finds out even though it's nothing major- he wouldn't appreciate being lied to either.
A real man takes his woman's feelings into consideration, he may hurt her... It happens, but he apologizes sincerely and makes the effort to know where she is coming from mentally..

 
Know your worth.
You deserve to be treated the best you can be treated,
I never knew men like this existed until I met my bf.
This past year has opened up my eyes to what I've been missing all of my life.
It takes a lot of assholes to realize and appreciate a good guy.
If you find a good guy.... Don't be an idiot don't let him go!
This is the guy to give a chance, a nice guy will be the best man for you.
And if you are with a jackass, dump him!
He won't change.
People never change.
Like ever.
I know this for a fact.
Trust me, men are not clay. They are what you know they are but don't want to believe.
Save yourself the heartache and headache.
Stay single until you meet a nice guy, he is the only one worth it.

Wedding things:

 Nursery art:

 Hundreds of recipes too, my mouth waters when i see recipes like this:

 I am not engaged nor am i pregnant, but some of the stuff is so cute. 
I just pin it, and think to myself "i will need this in the future." 
Or, omg that looks delicious i need to make that one day. *PINNING*
I highly recommend the app and or the website.

Happy new year


Happy new year, 
Happy holidays. 
Hope everyone celebrate safely and had a good time.
I stayed in this New Years and watched movies with the boyfriend on netflix.
I don't like over crowded bars and all the idiots driving on the holidays.
New Year's Day my friend had her daughters 7th birthday, time really flys!!
I got her an outfit a sweater and a pair of leggings. 
Little girls are so cute to shop for :-D 
What did you do for New Years this year?
