Jason Aldean & The Downfall of Myspace. {which is completely unrelated.}

Do you remember when Myspace and comments like those pictured above were cool? 

Yah... me neither. 

It's probably best that we put that behind us anyway. Speaking of... did you hear that Myspace is rumored to be laying 75% of it's employees off today? Well... it was a good run?

Facebook is the DEVIL, eh? I blame Tila Tequila mostly.

Let's listen to some music for the morning in the evening... cuz that's how I roll... I'm completely spaz-tastic today!


Now - have I mentioned my intense obsession with Jason Aldean?

Just listen to that voice! Holy crap - I am officially, 100% obsessed. 

What girl would ever break that beautiful man's heart like that??? 



*whew* k - I'm better now.

And in completely unrelated news - here's some hilarity:

What's up? What's goin' on? 

I can't quite get enough of this video. I know - I posted it already. But watch it again!!! It's funnier the 2nd time, I swear! 

And then there's this one:


How freakin' awesome would it be to have a baby jaguar? And then when they get big? Even awesomer. That's totally not even a word but I just invented it - because awesomer might be the best way to describe having a baby jaguar and STILL having it as a pet when it's full grown. Come home, there's a ginormous jaguar chillin' on your couch...

But back to Bella - Bella lives at the Panther Ridge Conservation Center in Florida. I want to go visit her one day... Moving on...

I recently discovered this lovely lady and I wanted to share with you a quote from an email she sent out yesterday. It really stood out to me - so I'm hoping it will do the same for some of ya'll as well. It's about how letting what others think of us (or possibly think of us) is ruining our lives - and actually is quite a selfish thing to do. As opposed to being a generous thing, which is what some may think they are accomplishing by being a people pleaser. Being a people pleaser is the result of our desire to "not stir the pot" or to not have to say something that might make someone else mad. Not only is that holding you back from your authentic self, it is denying the world of the best YOU that you can be... 
"Remember this: what other people think of you is none of your business. Obsessing about how to please others or be liked is a misuse of your energy. If you are making it your business – your focus is all about you.  More accurately said, it’s all about your ego."
(I heart her) 

So STOP IT! K? K. Now... 

The lovely Cinful Cinnamon has given me a spiffy award! Thanks Cin! 

Here are the rules:
1)  Mention the blogger that gave you the award.  
2)  Link to their blog.  
3)  Pay it Forward to 5 bloggers. 
So here are 5 bloggers who make my day better, in no particular order:
 (I'm pissed I had to limit it to only 5! So many of you inspire me every day!)

Good Morning!

instead of a second-rate version of somebody else."

Since I went with Chris Brown yesterday - I think I'll play some Rihanna this morning. Just for kicks.

Monday, GF Bakery & Music For The Morning!

Good Monday Morning Lovies!

How was your weekend? I hope you all had a wonderful Father's Day weekend with the fam. I took Pops out to a Greek restaurant for his Father's Day dinner - he's a big fan of gyros.

I had a rather adventurous weekend - I traveled over to Scottsdale to check out the Gluten Free Creations Bakery and it was fabulous! I picked up a few gluten free goodies while I was there!

I have to admit - those were the best gosh darn donuts I've EVER HAD! Of any variety. Even the Apple Fritters and Bear Claws can't beat them! (and we all remember how much I love Apple Fritters and Bear Claws, don't we?) 

It was a great experience - we had lunch in their cafe, awesome gluten free Philly cheesesteaks and kettle chips. Delicious! Pops even enjoyed it. Sorry, I wasn't able to get any pics of the cheesesteaks - my phone died after traipsing around Whole Foods for 2 hours (not kidding...). It takes a great amount of time and effort to read through all of the labels and ensure that there's no hidden gluten in all those foods. 

Speaking of gluten - I went to my doctor last week and told her about what I've been experiencing. Confirmation: yep. I'm gluten intolerant. I waited for her to give me some magical diet that would help me avoid all gluten, but she just smiled and wished me luck. "It's very hard, you have to read the labels closely." Thank you, Dr. Obvious! 

But the good news is that Dr. Obvious says I've lost 20 pounds since the last time I was in to see her. Which was about 6 months ago. 20 pounds in six months isn't really monumental - but she was happy with it and therefore, so am I! At one point I was down 30 pounds, but had to tweak things a bit and gained some of it back. I'm a work in progress. 

If you're interested in the gory details of my weight loss journey, you can follow my new(ish) blog about it here. I like to keep the weight loss stuff to a minimum here. 

So - that's about all the excitement I have to report at the moment - enjoy your week Lovies!!!

Here's a fun little catchy tune to get your Monday started...

I'm not feeling happy today - so in an attempt to lighten up my mood, I'm posting some of my favorite pink finds on pintrest for you. 

Because pink, shiny & sparkly things always work to perk me up! 

What do you do to lighten up your mood when you're feeling down?


Pink Kitchen - I NEED IT!!!
Pink Bathroom - NEED THAT TOO!!!
I wonder if my HOA would let me paint my house pink...

Black Master Bedroom - Pink Guest Bedroom? Yes please!!!
This song is fun - video is a bit psycho though...

Father's Day Gift Ideas on Etsy

The Etsy obsession continues! Wondering what to get your father for Father's Day? So was I - but you need not look any farther than Etsy! Here's some of my favorite ideas...

If you have a little one and are looking for something for Hubs - here's a cute idea... how about an adorable onesie to show your little one's affection for Dear 'ol Dad?

{purchase here}

I'm especially fond of the mustache one. Maybe because I have a thing for geeks. Who knows!

Here's another fabulous idea: Beer Soap. What dad wouldn't love that?!? 

{purchase here}
{purchase here}
Or how about a good old fashioned Chicago Tenement Deluxe Shaving Kit? Brilliant! 

{purchase here}
I love this genius little gem of a gift! A bottle opening ring! So pops doesn't even have to look past his own hand to open that next beer bottle. 

{purchase here}

I simply adore this little t-shirt idea!

What are you getting your father and/or husband for Father's Day this year? What were some of your best gift ideas in the past?
