Count yo' blessings.

Sorry I haven't written in a while.
A lot has happened!!
First I got mah hair did! My Hairstylist is amazing. A lot of laughs and TLC went into this Do! I loooovvveee iiittt! Thank you Dainty Squid for this post.

I love it! I am going to Emilie Autumn today. If you have not heard of her, check her out. She's a classical violinist turned goth rock ish? She is her own genre, I suppose! I am super super excited. It's my cousin's first concert. I am more excited to see her reaction.

Then right after I got my hair done, I got super sick. Fever, chills, aches. It sucked. I am better. Then soon as I got better, I rammed my hand into our banister. I bruised the bone really bad. I took a trip to the ER. That was fun.

Dave more then made up for it though. We've been dating for one year. We are going away this weekend. We exchanged gifts yesterday. He got me this beautiful acme The Beatles pen! It came with a fountain nib too, but I have yet it play with it.

It's limited edition too! There are only 1,964 of them. I got number 0906. :). It's one of those ' Wow, I own that!' type of things! I can't believe it. I am going to get ink for the fountain nib. I have such a lovely boyfriend. And I'm super lucky to have him, and I cannot believe it's been 1 year already!!

Well, I gotta get ready for Emilie Autumn! Have a good weekend guys!~

Quick Turkey Dinner!

We had this little butterball turkey breast left over from Thanksgiving. It looked like a huge turkey egg. Lol. We froze it, and said we will use it for later. Well! We did!

I give you this Quick Turkey Dinner!

All it is is Mashed Potatoes, Stove Top stuffing, turkey, gravy, then top it off with Cranberries!

One tip for you guys, is that if your turkey comes with a packet of gravy, cook it with the turkey! It makes the turkey soo much better!!

It was a nice hearty, quick meal for winter. :)!

Double Cup Daze

Do you ever have those days, when you wake up and know one cup of coffee isn't going to be up.
There are signs. Like forgetting to put the cup under the Keurig after pressing the button (Thankfully I got it in time)
Or Putting the dogs away, and forgetting to close the door.
Days like this make me Thank God I don't curl or straighten my hair, because I know I'd leave the curling/ straightener iron on.
I call them:

Where one isn't enough!

As you can see, this is my second cup. Lol.
It's those days where you wake up, feeling productive. You are going to do it today. Yeah. I can do this. you say to you self.
You make a great breakfast. Fuck Yeah!

You get your coffee. Cream it.

Then you sit down. Then it slows down. You start yawning. Oh Man. Better chug my coffeeYou wait the 20 minutes for the caffeine to kick in. But, you know it's not coming.
And, My Mom is having a flair today too on top of it all. I know probably most of you don't take care of a sick person. That's draining in it's self. And you know the person you are caring for doesn't want to be sick either. Then that's when then 'FuckIt' comes in. 

That's when you go for cup number 2.

As number 2 hits your system, you feel it. Am...Am I human again??!! You ask yourself. Yes. Yes you are. It's like a warm embrace, a familiar old friend who has come to town, and gives the best hugs. That extra push you need to do the fucking dishes. Or start your taxes. Or whatever you do in the morning.
I think everyone has DCDs. Just know, you are not alone.
