Blog Vomit: Volume I

Wednesday is usually the day where I do my "Inspired By:" post each week. I talk about what's been inspiring me lately. Well I planned on doing a post about avocados, because last week I incorporated them into my meals a lot (is it weird to be inspired by an avocado...maybe?). I had high hopes for this post, but then today when it came time to put the post together, the thought of avocados made me want to blow chunks (cute visual, huh?).

Good ol Aunt Flow came to visit me and my stomach has been in knots all day. The only thing that sounds good to eat is Midol. Forreals.

So instead of a glorious avocado recipe post, you're getting a little something that I'd like to call blog vomit. I'm just going to sit here and type whatever comes to mind. And maybe sprinkle in a few random pictures.


- I just got my wireless camera remote in the mail. And I have been having WAY too much fun figuring out how to use that & my tripod. Fair warning: this blog is about to be bursting with shameless selfies.

- Another thing that came in the mail this week (in case you didn't know...I love getting mail, so I order stuff online just for the sake of getting mail...I have issues) was my order from Julie Ann Art. Her cards seriously crack me up. I bought 3 just because they made me spit my coffee on my keyboard when I was reading them online last week.


- Going to the grocery store hungry is probably one of the stupidest things that one could do. I did that yesterday. And spent WAY more than a single person should be spending on their weekly grocery bill. And guess what? I don't even cook. I guess I forgot about that while I was in the store yesterday and my stomach was growling at me. Who wants to come use all the food I bought and cook me a gourmet dinner?

- 3 days until I get to watch Luke Bryan shake it for me. I'm so excited, I think I just peed a little.


- Last thing. Something that really annoys me: when people win tickets to an event from a radio station and they don't even act halfway excited about it. Y'all...winning free tickets is something to squeal about! Especially if you're on the radio. C'mon! I've been trying to win tickets to see Kenny Chesney & Eric Church all week...I've called two of my local radio stations over 100 times. And when I win (because I AM going to win), I already have my acceptance speech planned out & practiced. People are going to know that I'm excited about winning those tickets, dangit.

I hope you enjoyed this edition of Blog Vomit. I'm sure there's more where this came from.
Oh and I hope you enjoyed mine & Adam's test run of my tripod & remote ;)

    I see Luke Bryan on Sunday! I can't wait!!! If your a country girl you should come down for Chili Cookoff in South Florida one year...there is a bunch of country music and its just a big party. So fun! I'm rooting for you to win those tickets!!

  4. Love the pattern on the chair behind you in the peace sign pic and totally agree about the radio people. People are always like, "Yay." I'd be all "holymolyicantbelieveijustwonsomethingontheradioandnowicantremembermyownname." My mom won us a trip to Disney World on the radio one year and she couldn't remember my name when the DJ asked who she'd take with her.

  6. Those are such sweet photos of you and A! Also, I know exactly what you mean. I used to listen to morning radio all the time, and every time someone sounded bored or ungrateful that they won something, I'd yell, "Screw that! They don't want it! Give it to me!"

  8. You are two are quite the picture takers! LOL. Can't wait to see the fun poses you can do now that you have 3 extra hands (thank you tripod!!).

    And I cannot stand that either!!! When people win anything on the radio, they should be screaming with excitement, and some are just SO LAME!!! I wish I won something for free!!

    Happy Hump Day lovie! xo, Bev

  9. Um can I just say I'm in total LOVE with your apartment? At least what I can see from these pictures :)
    And I somehow spent $200 on groceries this month alone. For just ME. I mean, I have 2 cats I have to buy litter and food for... but seriously!?!? I need to stop spending that much on food for one person. Crazy. Last trip I made I definitely went hungry... but I bought 90% fruits and veggies - so that's good at least, right?

  10. I know the ticket thing makes me super MAD! My sister and I were - this close to winning Miranda Lambert tickets & backstage passes and her iphone SHUT OFF!! How annoying. Then the girl who one was like..."I won that's cool, I guess." I was like Bee-yotch, really? No squeak, no squeal, not ever a yay! Bitter much, hell yeah I am. HAHA.

  13. On the radio thing - THANK YOU. As a jock, it irritates the crap out of me when listeners aren't excited. And it irritates me even more when they don't know what they won. ::headdesk::

  16. Oh Luke Bryan, how could anyone not love him? Been to 3 concerts and plan on going to as many more as I can. Can't get enough of that man's shaking.
