FAN Friday &&&& Summer Bucket List

Venus Trapped in Mars
This girl has been my new favorite blogger of the week, I cant even remember How i came across her blog but Glad i did, and now follow her on twitter and just overly enjoy her humor and she is one cool lady. I am linking up Sarah @ Venus Trapped in Mars for a FAN Friday Link up.

Tevis and I are football fans. He has been a season ticket holder for 3-4 years now. When i was just talking to him as friends, i knew he had Season tickets for Indianapolis Colts football games and I was so jealous, well now we are together,  and I am also a season ticket holder, hehe. Sundays are made for Football and i miss football when its not football season. I usually sign up for 3-4 fantasy leagues and it makes watching football with tevis more enjoyable because we will make bets or root for players we have playing. Having a fantasy league makes watching football most def. enjoyable. i hope to get together a all girls team this year, if you want to join LET ME KNOW! :) We get close parking and have decent seats, so its not a whole lot of walking for Tevis, and Lucas oil stadium is a nice stadium so there are ramps and escalators that make it easier. I can excited for football season to start and get this link up more exciting with weekly updates on games and etc :) I will leave you with some pictures from last year!


I always love reading Big Holly's Blog :) So i am little late (but still have time) linking up with her and Trista for a summer Bucket List. 

  • Got to the Indianapolis zoo
  • take bike rides with Delaney
  • have a water balloon or water gun fight with Delaney
  • have a party/cookout after we move and are settled in
  • go to the drive-in
  • go to the park a lot with Delaney. I love to Swing
  • Buy a little pool so Delaney and I can stay cool on hot days
  • do fun crafts with Delaney
  • go to a baseball game
  • go to Kings Island with Delaney and some friends and their daughter

I think that is a pretty good list for now! :) I am sure I can do it all and be very satisfied :)

    #springvoxbox Influenster Review

    **I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes**

    I received my first Influenster Box :) 

    I was so excited to get my first box! It was like Christmas morning almost :) 

    NYC New York color applelicious Glossy lip balm. This lip balm delivers color and moisture in one single swipe. it has Shea butter, jojoba oil, vitamin E and avocado oil. I love the smell and the way it felt! 

    Broadway Nails ImPRESS Press-on manicure. I have yet to try these because I have nails on already, but a friend of mine tried them and did not like them at all. I hope I have better luck with them. 

    Tastykake Kandy Bar kakes. I got the S'mores bar and it was delicious! 

    OSiS gelastic. It is an ultra strong gel that provides all day definition and control. It does exactly what it needs to do. :) 
    Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/deodorant. I am a Secret lover and only like to use smooth solid and i was a little ify about trying this one, but i have been using it ever since i got it and I am gonna buy a big size SOON. I think it works better then my smooth solid deodorant. 

    I hope all you ladies enjoyed getting your #SpringVoxBox.

    Hey loves, xoxo 
    I am linking up with Life After I "Dew" again this week! 
    Check her out!

    SO WHAT if...
    So What Wednesday

    • i stopped running outside, breathing is more important, allergies suck, gym membership will be the way to go. 
    • i have been in a funk lately, dang anxiety
    • if i cant wait to move, who wouldn't want to be in their own house, FINALLY
    • Tevis and I spend a lot of time together, we have a great relationship
    • i don't have a job i am a full time student
    • i am totally hating my research paper
    • i may get a bad grade on my research paper, still will pass the class
    • i bowled like a fool all weekend thinking it would make up for the lack of running/exercise i am doing, at least i got active and was sweating 
    Thinking of these was sorta hard and I just sound way negative. I have been in a funk, haven't been sleeping good and upset that running outside right now totally makes me wheeze bad and have to hit my rescue inhaler like no other, which will give me heart palpitations  So gym membership here I come. My BFF Erica Dee got a membership and has been working out all week and says its way easier then going outside. 
    on some GOOD NOTES, i have really watched what I have been eating and feel better in that aspect and
    the biggest news of all i have to tell is we are officially moving, June 10th. Cant wait to move and show off my house to you all. I hope these next few weeks go by fast!!! 

     I will leave you with this picture. My top Igers i "like" most, hehe


    && tune in tomorrow for some link ups :) 
    I am co-hosting with Kristin for Thirsty Thursday

    Hopelessly Ever After

    Tuesday, May 21, 2013


    I have family about 2 or 3 hours of Moore, Oklahoma. My mom was born and raised in OK. She was watching the news and the weather making sure this tornado was not going straight for our family. I made sure i stayed in contact with my Mom to make sure what was going on since i was not around a TV  Thankfully my family is fine and everyone is safe. My mom said they had to take cover a few times because the storm was so bad.

    I have watched a few videos and seen the news a little bit, have not watched much, but when I did watch i just teared up. I cannot even begin to imagine losing everything, losing someone you loved and even losing your child. What a scary experience! My thoughts and prayers are pouring out to everyone.

    Hug your loved ones! Call your parents! HUG your kiddos. Tomorrow is never promised!!
    Donate and help out if you can!
