Odd Jobs

I have a history for wanting to do odd jobs and thinking they would be fun. Granted, I’ve never actually done them, but I think I need a shot at it just to see how I’d like it.

Pizza Assembler

Wouldn’t it be fun to flip that dough, spoon on that sauce, and bake those tasty little pies? I think so.

Grocery Store Clerk

It could be the fact that I like the little dings as the labels are scanned or the fact that I watched Supermarket Sweep as a child, but I always wanted to work at the grocery. Let’s not forget that I would pretend to be one when we got back to my grandmother’s after going to grocery, and I would “scan” the items on the kitchen table.

Chef on a TV Show

While also at said grandmother’s house, I’d often whip up stuff in the kitchen, all the while, giving step-by-step instructions to my fake audience. Mini-pizzas on buns? Spaghetti sauce? Meatballs? I could do it all.

The Next Ricki Lake

My mom was a talk show junkie, so I obviously became one. And my dream job was to be the next Ricki Lake. She had dark hair. I had dark hair. She was funny. I was funny. She loved the dramatics. I loved the dramatics. Can’t you see me with my own show? Say yes.

Costume Designer Picker-Outer

My absolute dream job was/is to choose the clothes that the actors wear on tv shows. I don’t want to have to sew and make and alter them, which is basically the job, but I want to go to into a big room and pick out clothes that are ready to wear, choose shoes and accessories that go with them. Wouldn’t that be SO fun? Yeah. I still want to do that.

What odd jobs did/do you want to do?

#BFCMugSwap

Kallie from But First, Coffee hosted yet another fabulous swap. I was super lucky to be paired with Veronica from Vero Says!

Veronica

So for basically a week, I stalked Veronica on Instagram and read her whole blog. Girlfriend is cute as a button, is obsessed with nail polish, and has the sweetest little family ever. Also, she lives in my very favorite city, so I’m uber jealous about that. I bet she has the Bahston accent that I love so much.

I received my mug this week, and Veronica even included a few more goodies. Woot woot!

mug swap

First, that mug is perfection. If everyone around me didn’t already know that I’m the Princess, they certainly will now.  I seriously lol’d when I opened it. Awesome job, Veronica!!! You got me down pat!

The Almond Joy, banana baby food, and nail polish (because duh!) was an added bonus. Veronica also is a great PI because she found the candy bar and baby food on my instagram. The polish is such a fun color, and I can’t wait to try it out. And yes, people, I do like an occasional jar of baby food every once in awhile. It’s like dessert! Don’t knock it ‘til ya try it! K?

I’m so glad Kallie paired me with Veronica. This girl is already on my bloglovin and instagram feed, and she’s there to stay.

Thanks, Veronica!

August Favorites

August has come and gone quicker than my diet plan, and it’s already September. Don’t even mention how close Christmas is because I will cut you. I only have 3 gifts bought, and I’m already stressed about it.

Anywho, back to August. I love reading everyone’s favorites from the previous month, and I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon. So in the words of my niece, ta-da!

August

I got lots of new items, and I love each and every one of them. Especially loving that patina cuff bracelet. It’s fierce. Melanie, stop trying to make fierce happen. It’s not going to happen.

Garcia’s

Garcias

My newest favorite restaurant- a Mexican restaurant just down the road from me. I ate there three times last week. It’s that good. And who doesn’t love a good margarita on the porch?

My bff- Kate

This is the newest bag to be added to my collection and I absolutely love it. The yellow. The tassel. The flap. All of it. #obsessed

Talenti

Talenti

Holy moses. This stuff is legit. It tastes like I just unwrapped a caramel and popped it into my mouth. I need some of this now.

My other friend, Lilly

lilly

I decided to try out the Lilly Pulitzer planners this time, and I really like it. I hate that they don’t make just Jan-Dec, because my current one is like that, but I went on and bought it anyway. And started using it in August. Dang it.

Share a Coke with me

Coke

After searching for my name every time I walk by the darn bin, I finally ran across Mel. Finally! I drank the coke, but still have the bottle sitting on my counter. #weird

So that’s what I’ve been loving from August. What are your August faves?

Confession Session

It’s hump day. I’m just excited that we are that much closer to the weekend. And a long weekend at that. Halle-freaking-lujah! I haven’t confessed in a long while, so I thought today was the perfect day!

- I ordered a new Kate Spade purse last week. I have been wanting this purse ALL summer long. I finally found one on eBay for a great price, but some twat waffle beat me by $2.00 in the very last second. I was pissed. The last damn second!!!

-I got a new iphone 5s the other day. I wanted to wait for the 6, but heard it would be several more hundred dollars, and I just don’t have time for that. I have purses to buy, dammit. There was nothing wrong with my 4s, and to be honest, I don’t see a huge difference in this one. Also, I realize I’m about a year behind everyone getting this. And I don’t care.

-I feel like I’m just treading water lately. You know that feeling? Like your are just going through the motions and life is happening, but you don’t really feel it. Yeah. It’s a bad feeling, but I’m not sure what to do to get out of that funk.

-I’m in the middle of two classics- To Kill a Mockingbird (at work) and Tess of d’Urbervilles (home). I’ve never read Tess, so I thought it would be a good book to read before I start my book club book. I’m on chapter 2. Ugh.

-Can these ice bucket challenges be over? I promise I’m not a bad sport, but I hate them. They clog my newsfeed. Yes, it’s awesome people are more aware. It’s awesome that donations have increased. But I donate to charities. I don’t need to post all about it on facebook. And honestly- how many of the people doing them have actually donated???? How many just did the challenge to put it on fb?

-I’ve been pretty subdued lately, so I obviously haven’t had anything blog worthy. But to be honest, have I ever? Ha

That’s all I got today, folks. What’s going on in your world?
