Look what happened now...
Everyone should experience Mardi Gras at least once in NOLA. #TrueFact
(And if you like it then over and over.)
I didn't go this year nor the year before. My friends from New Orleans usually come to visit me. Because to be honest most of the locals leave the French Quarter during Mardi Gras and let the tourist run wild.
And wild it becomes...
I prefer now to only celebrate Halloween in NOLA or go for Jazz Fest. I'm thinking about a trip in early December, which is a lovely time to go as well. I went in 2013 and was ill, so it wasn't that much fun. #FML :(
But if you can't go to NOLA, bring it to you!
I don't decorate for Valentines Day - instead we pull out the creepy dolls and crazy stuff I have bought over the years in NOLA.
Decorating aside, I really want to spend one Carnival in Venice.
Can you imagine?
Happy Fat Tuesday, where ever in the world you are!
Hey! How are things?
Busy here, as usual. I'm happy to see March, how about you? Summer is not far off. :D
Below were the most clicked links (maybe the best of, maybe not) for February.
Feels A Lot Like Spring
Peach trees and flowers are beginning to bloom. Short post, but pretty pictures. They really came out well, considering I just used my phone. :D
S-Age is Just a Number
Review of new nail polish. Short and to the point - polish is pretty and I like it. LOL
My makeup reviews always score high in clicks, which is odd, cause I feel like the pictures are shit. Its so hard to take good photos of nails. I continue to be impressed with the Instagram gals who take such amazing pictures WEEKLY of their nails.
Another Girls Movie Night
Not sure why this was so popular. I know its not because there is a crappy, hung over looking picture of me posted.
14 days of Valentine Goodies Pt 1
I am so Spoiled! This post is me sharing some of the cool little gifts I rec'd for Valentines day. I have so many kind, caring people in my life. #TotallyLucky
No Pictures Allowed
One of the longest posts I have written in awhile. Lots of words and 42 pictures. WOW I was in a story telling mood for sure. I actually have told this same story (san pictures) so much in the weeks that followed and every one mostly agreed that Jack N the Box is crap (after they laughed their asses off at my story).
March looks like its going to be an awesome month. I hope to make a trip to the Gulf for some r and r. + I have a business trip to Dallas coming up and of course theres movie nights with the girls and dating and camping, as I can find the time. In the meantime I am packing up my house and trying to enjoy life day to day.
Thank you for reading my silly little blog. If there is something you want me to write more (or less) about please let me know.
Take care and talk soon-
Greeting from the land of Chocolate! :o
Hope you had a lovely Valentines. I did.....Sorta.
To be quite honest you can have TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING. Like a buddy of mine just said, "He means well and all. But next time just tell him to go to Tiffany's and skip the candy crap!"
These are nice flowers and all. But I really like roses. It's just like I don't want to bitch, but why won't he listen, you know?? I like the iris and the lily, too. BUT I told him NOT to buy for me. But I really like roses. I have asked other women what they do and 1/2 say."HELL my husband/Boy friend doesn't buy me anything at all! I would be happy with anything!" or "I just buy it myself!" WTF? Am I the only one getting flowers and stuff monthly? Then I better not bitch, right? BUT why won't he listen when I *hint* not so MUCH CANDY, not SO MUCH, STOP ALREADY!
And ahem, in his defense HE didn't send all of this. (Looks somewhat guilty...But ya know I'm not married.)
I'm going to go on a juice fast in about 2 weeks to get rid of all the crap I DID EAT.
Catch you later-
Happy New Year!
Now that we have that outta the way, :) Hope your new year is Fab so far! As I said last year (that pun is going it get so old this week) My BFF is here from New Orleans. So we have been hanging out, visiting other people and having fun. :D
Here is a bit of the randomness as of late.
Seems she doesn't have a bakery close to her house. Although when I was calling around to find her cake for the surprise party (yes, she is THAT friend) I found a new bakery in her neighborhood. I told her about it last night and made her promise to visit them because they were so SUPER Nice to me on the phone. They weren't fully fitted out yet and couldn't make her cake, but referred me to a Bakery that could. #ForTheWin So anyway, I brought her out for donuts. See us in the reflection? lol
Yesterday we went to a NYE Party. I'm not sure what the guys were all doing, but we had a great time laughing & eating . I took only 1 photo...
No food, no drinks, no decoration. Fail miserably! I had small dress purse, skinny/tight dress, no place to put bulky camera and I turned off the cell because I wanted to have fun and not be interrupted every 5 seconds with someone texting "Happy New Year!" So sorry no pictures. :(
But I really liked her new fan and want to sketch it. #Art #Geek :o
Isn't it cool???
OH! I almost forgot, I did manage to snap a few pictures of the dramatic sky (with the trusty iphone) as we were driving into town.
Which is kinda where I feel my life is right now. I feel like BIG changes are about to take place and I'm both happy and a little worried. This should be a very interesting year.
And you? What do you have planned for 2014?
Ok, one last New Years message and I'm going back to bed. I was really looking forward to sleeping in today. I start back to work tomm. and need to focus on work, saving $$$$ and getting my houses in order for my return to Europe. So a MEGA amount of work will have to be completed asap.
Take care and I hope to see you at the airport!
WARNING: I cuss a lot here..
While in Vegas another odd thing..
I was catching a shuttle to the mall, popped on and asked the driver if he was in fact, going to mall. (Note here boys & girls if you have ever popped on a bus and ended up ELSEWHERE than where you THOUGHT you were going you learn to ask EVERY TIME.) Free travel tip #101 - your welcome.
So as I climbed aboard & driver said, "You must be from the East Coast." I was dumb founded. "What?"
Whole bus, which is full, now turns to stare at me. :0
"Where are you from? It's the East Coast, right?" He tries again.
I find a open seat and shake my head no...
Bus driver: "You sound like your from the East Coast."
Me: Shaking head no, again. (Pretends to look out the window, at my shoes, at anything.)
Bus driver: "Where are you from?" Turned around in seat looking at me.
Me: Wishing the Fucking bus would MOVE, still shaking head No
Bus Driver: Getting louder, "Where are you from Lady?"
All passengers looking at me...Bus Still NOT MOVING
Me: I had to think a minute, where am I from? Where do I call home? What country? What Language do I answer this annoying man in? WTF?? Has my life changed that much that I don't even know where I'm from? And then I was struck by how RUDE this was, especially by French standards...Wait, what? I'm in the U.S. I should tell him U.S. Oh I know!
Me : "Texas. I'm from Texas."
Bus Driver: "No, your not."
Other passengers: "You don't sound like it."
Me: What the Fuck? "Yes, I am." (Wondering now if I should get off the bus & run for my life.)
Bus driver: "Well you don't have that twang in your voice"
Other passengers: Sea of shaking heads agreeing with driver & murmuring to themselves in agreement about me.
Me: Quietly, "Well I have lived other places.."
Bus Driver: "Well I guess that explains it." and finally puts bus in gear & off we go...
OMFG! What kind of fucking, twilight zone, fucking dip-shit, hell am I in?? Cover your ears, boys & girls because who knows how that must sound in my freaky, accented voice?!?!
OK, I had this at the end of the post about Instagram images (that I just posted) and decided it should not be on there, too much cussing..sorry. Well, actually No, I'm not sorry. It was a true story and that's how it went. People can be so CRAZY sometimes...I know the driver didn't mean anything by it, or the passengers, but um, really? Come on.. * ___ *
Leave me alone, I was on vacation too. I didn't ride to Vegas on a horse, wear cowboy boots or a hat. So I can't be from Texas? And WTF, me? What the HELL do I sound like? I have really become a world citizen, wow.
Moral of this story: Travel is good for the soul & people should just shut the fuck up and do their jobs.
So if you follow me on twitter (thank you both, BTW) Then you know that I post backwards entries as well as forward.
Why? Well I was blogging for most of this year, but only came to this site in late April, I believe. * --- * How Time Flies!
Anyway, I am moving the post over to the new site and also trying to update current events as they happen. It is a great way for me to record events around me and have a record of the random bits (Which actually are very precious parts) of my life.
My readership (do you ship? lol) is increasing. But the comments are not. So tell me what you want to read more of/less of. And Longer posts or shorter post? Feedback, please.
And Thank you, I am feeling the love on Instagram!
This is me, if you want to follow. See I'm pretty random. I do follow back, unless your SPAM (OMG! Its so bad some days) or just really, really slutty. If I wanted to see a hot, almost naked chick I'd look in a mirror, K?
Anyway, Thank you for the follows and the love and reading my silly little blog...(tears up almost)
Hugs & Love to All
I noticed sometime while I was in New Orleans, both Roxann & I turned into sailors. Rough, Salty Sailors. Every other word out of our mouths was fuck, "fuck this, fuck that"...wtf? Not that I was a angel before then... but I use it so liberally in my blog because this is how I type texts & in real life my speech is peppered with wtfs as well. Why should I change my personality on my blog to make other people happy? Your reading a blog I wrote dealing with MY LIFE & ADVENTURES. I do refrain from raining insults down on people & picking sides in the current Political Debacle; You’re welcome. :/
The other common phrases I use now are: "fuck me running!" & "People are so fucking crazy?" in wonderment, but I don't want to write about that... Stories I could tell you about people doing things that make no sense. Because it seems my friends and I are the only ones noticing these things? Like people doing horrible, unthinkable things to each other; for no apparent reason and nothing is ever solved or explained later on? No follow-ups other than sensationalism. No, I think there is way too much of that being talked now. And not in a “lets try & heal/understand” dialogue, but more as "thrilling/rape the people" Bull Shit disguised as journalism. (You feel me?) That’s the kind of writing that poisons everything around it, that’s the kind of writing, less the cussing; that is really offensive. So go pick on them or go fuck yourself. Your call.
I guess what I'm trying to say is if my writing offends you, then leave. It will probably only get more distasteful (& more real) as the blog grows & gets more personal.
