Friday Letters


Dear Gunner,
You are such a ham and I love it! You can get me to smile with just a little from the goofy little look on your face or that wiggly butt!

Dear Hunger Games (the movie),
The book is always better!
But you were good.

Dear Ohio Weather, 
I've been pleasantly surprised with you over the last several weeks.
Although one of my favorite things about spring is the mild weather I haven't minded the 80 degrees days, even if it's raining.
Keep up the good work!
Dear Maternal Instinct,
Slow.Your. Roll.
You might think you want a baby, but you don't...not yet at least! 
Or do you?
No no no no not yet!
(see what she's doing to me!)

Dear Vacations I have yet to take,
Please see above.
Better get booked!

Dear Work Slur-per,
I'm just so thrilled that you have moved on from soup to fruit...NOT!
Said fruit makes your slurping even worse and it now involves crunching!
Oh for the love of God there you go again...

And work slurp-er is definitely not this adorable!

Dear HR,
I'm not sure how much more of the slurping I can take. Please do not fire me when I go over there and rep remand him for being as old as he is (like his mid to late 60's here folks) and eating like a 5 year old.
I'm just kidding.
I would never do that, but I'd like to if I knew you wouldn't fire me :)

Dear Bestest,
The more we are together the more certain I am that we were separated at birth.
I never tell you how much I appreciate you and how much I love all our fun times and random quirkiness (even if the guys don't!).

Dear Kevin,
Thank you so much for being you!
You were such a trooper taking care of me with the flu and that was on top of my normal bossiness.
I couldn't ask for a better hubins :)

Happy Friday!


Fill in the Blank Friday

1. My greatest strength is   I would say my loyalty and my ability to be realistic about a situation .

2. My greatest weakness is my ability to be realistic and my ability to see things through to the end. At times my realism can be a debbie downer. When it comes to getting things done, I will, but it's not always timely or finished period .

3. People always compliment me on    personality wise my helpfulness, and physically my hair .

4. If you found me procrastinating you'd probably find me     on the computer either facebooking, blogging, or pinteresting.

5. The most cozy place in all the world is   snuggled up with Kev and Gunner in bed! I love my bed :)

6. Something new that I tried recently was    hmmm I guess Sobe Life Water. I'm obsessed!

7. This weekend I would like to   start getting out around Cbus to get into my photography. I'd also like to be able to get some things organized around the house.

Happy Friday!

Personality: Work & Love

This does not relate to anything about this post but I have to follow up.
Hunger Games = awesome! The movie was really good!
I always think the book is better, and really this is no different, the book is better, but the movie is very good and definitely worth seeing!

Moving on...

A couple weeks ago Kev sent me a link to this website that he took a personality test on for work. Apparently it's a one of the best personality tests to take when it comes to your personality and your career path.
I always like taking these tests even though I feel like I've gotten pretty much the same result since I was 10, taking proficiency tests, telling me what I should start looking into for a job.
It's really no surprised what I got, and Kev actually got the same thing. We are "Determined Realist". None of you are surprised either are you? 

Some of the traits of a Determined Realist:
  • Practical -yep
  • Traditional - check
  • Organized - eh, this is a little so-so
  • Likely to be athletic - More Kev than me!
  • Not interesting in theory or abstraction, unless they see the practical application - check
  • Have a clear vision of the way things should be - check (at least in our minds!)
  • Loyal - double check
  • Hard working - check check
  • Likes to be in charge - ummm really triple the checks for this girl
  • Exceptionally capable in organizing & running activities - it's because I'm bossy (see above!)
  • "Good citizens" who value security & peaceful living - I honestly thought that was because I watch to much Law & Order
Careers that we would best fit into:
  • Military - yeah right. We are the bosses, not get bossed around! 
  • Business administrators - I am pretty good with data entry & taking direction.
  • Manager - that's more like it :)
  • Police/Detective Work - I suppose. I can be nosy. lol. 
  • Judges - hahahahah I am not sure why I laughed when I read this but I did.
  • Finance Officers - also made me laugh because clearly they didn't ask any questions about math skills. 
  • Teachers - Not for me but I think Kev could be good at it! 
  • Sales Rep - This would be more up Kev's alley
  • Government Workers - ehhhhhh
  • Insurance Agents - double ehhhhhh 
  • Underwriters - triple ehhhhhh 
  • Nursing Administrators - Kev would be better at this too. Obviously he handles the young & the old much better than I do! 
You should give it a try and see where you fall! Maybe if you are looking to switch up the career field it will help!

However, another fun part about this personality test is the compatibility part of it. It only works if you and someone else takes the test because you are given a unique number to use to match. Now I've seen & even done some of the little compatibility tests around, but not one that is considered fairly legit. Kev and I always seem to end up in the same category of "type". Most of the time we get the same kind of results in the compatibility department. Kev and I can be quite the pair as long as we are willing to bend with one another. Without bending on either or both of your parts we would never work. It actually said without compromise our relationship could be toxic. Geesh! Clearly we are willing to bend. We are an in love newlywed couple that has been together a solid 5 1/2 years. I think it can be said it'd bend until Kev were happy, and vice versa but I'm not sure you would get that out of all those out there. I think it's fun to do compatability tests, just for fun. See what you get :)

Where did you fall in the personality test? Did you get your significant other to take it too? How about the compatability results?

Happy Thursday

Pinteresting Wednesday

I'm already ready for the end of this work day. Why? Because we are finally going to get to see The Hunger Games! Althought none of my pins are going to have to do with that today I'm really excited about it :)

I thought today would be a good reminder day.
A reminder that everyone is affected by others but more of a reminder
that you are awesome, no matter what anyone says :)

Be whatever it is you are, no matter what!

What are you capable of that you never thought possible?

You. Are. Worth. It!

Always remember to love people for who they are!
The things that you say can and will affect them!

Mmm hmmm!

Most importantly be nice to yourself!

Happy Wednesday you amazing person you!

Spring a-ding-ding

Today is the one day link up with Neely & Amber and what you love about the spring! Well spring isn't my favorite season but it's a close second! There is so much about spring to be enjoyed, especially after the cold winter (eh? okay maybe not so much this year, but you get my point).

What are my favorite things about spring?

Everything about spring is pretty to me. The flowers, the animals all coming back...heck even the rain is nice!

My mood:
I am definitely someone whose mood is affected by the weather!
Spring time comes around and it's hard not to be in a good mood all the time.

I love all the bright colors of the spring!
The pops of color that are being seen everywhere is awesome.

Being outdoors (even if it's just on a patio)!
Who doesn't like the chance to be outside?
It's the best time to take Gunner to the dog park :)

Hiking is always a good time in the spring!
What do you love about spring? Link up & share!

Rough Weekend

So this is going to be short & sweet. I've been battling the flu since Saturday. The worst I've ever been sick in my whole life.

Today is the first day I've been able to make it to the couch and possible do some work from home. However, to get me through this day I'll be needed some upbeat tunes.

Have you heard this new one from B.O.B? I really like it, it's one of those summertime, windows down kind of songs.

Happy Monday

Fill in the Blank Friday :)

1. My favorite color is    jade. I've been in love with this color for the last year!...and I really want that dress .

2. My home decor color palette includes    earth tones - browns, reds, yellows, greens, but we do have two blue rooms as well  . 

3. Other people always tell me I look good in the color     red and certain greens. No idea why, probably the skin tone.
From junior year! Honestly think that's the last time I wore that much red.

4. The color I detest is     I'm not a huge fan of pink but I wouldn't say I detest it, just don't use it a lot.

5. If you were to look in my closet most of the colors you'd see would be    aren't too bright. I have a lot of black and white stuff, but I have almost every color in between. 

6. A color that I simply cannot pull off no matter how hard I try is    yellow! I look awful in yellow! 

7. The color of my favorite dress is   Um. Well I have two. One is blue & white (with a red tank) and then multi colored.

Happy Friday!

It's Ok Thursday

Isn't all this weather just awesome! I am still reeling that it's only March and we are having 80 degree weather. Almost makes me a little nervous as I have a feeling this means it's only going to get hotter as the summer rolls in...hello 100+ degrees! I suppose that'd be ok though too.

I also find it okay...

that I feel as if I don't have any good clothes for spring & summer. Even though I've been getting things here and there.

to have gotten 5 pairs of flats in less then a week. All together it's cost me less that $150 to get them all. Thank you DSW & discount sites.
All 5 pairs in all their glory. Simple, but I needed some basics to replace the old!


to be obsessively looking for coral colored skinnies.All the ones I've found are out of my size, or really freakin' expensive.
that after the last two years I've really come to realize that global warming is really happening, and happening fast! I didn't not believe it, just saying it's really solidified it's true

to hate that it's coming up on politics season! I just love sitting around watching bashing advertisements and lying. UGH!

that I saw 21 Jump Street and instantly knew it would be part of the movie collection. It's actually really good & funny!

to get new music to listen to from commercials.
{from the Bing commercial}

that at my age I still struggle with having to certain things for people when they are perfectly capable of doing it themselves. They are just being lazy.

to be really sad that the Walking Dead is over for the season.

to be even more sad that I am not going to The Hunger Games tonight/tomorrow, but I will be seeing it!

to realize that I shouldn't be sad about the movie because it's going to be a mad house and I would surely end up punching someone.

to have already turned on the AC because our house was to muggy and hot at night.

to be looking forward to the end of this work day so I can go outside :)

Happy Thursday!
