Friday Faves

I love the Friday faves from other blogs so I decided to do one of my own. I hope you enjoy! Please leave some suggestions of your own in the comments!

And awaaaayyy we go!

I have been craving tacos lately, and luckily the hubby wanted some BBQ tonight. So I got to have some BOMB tacos from Spiced Right in Roswell. Seriously, their BBQ is absolutely delicious, and their brisket tacos are glorious. I’m drooling just looking at this picture.

Georgia has been super duper snuggly lately. At first I was worried that she was getting sick (do dogs get snuggly when they’re sick like kiddos do?), but it looks like she’s just getting even more comfortable here with us. We have only had her for about 3 months now, so I think there are still certain things she is trying to adjust to. But I am loving her crawling up on the couch with us and falling asleep. Her snoring is precious.

I am really trying to get on the infused water bandwagon. I know I’m really late, but I really want to love it. It’s ok I guess, but I feel like this would help me get even more into it. It’s so cute!!!

I have been trying for years to find the right planner for me. I like details, and I like to be able to have one whole page for my day. As a student I need room for planning hour by hour as well as a to do list to keep up with homework assignments, but I don’t want some giant bulky binder. I have enough of those. I have been using The Simplified Planner in gold pineapple (how cute are those pineapples?!) since August, and I am so obsessed! I am never changing again. I have found my perfect planner.

This and this iphone case would change my life. I need them.

Do you have any cool things you’ve found around the internet?

Rain Rain Please Calm Yourself

This rain has been completely overwhelming. I guess my rain dance did its job above and beyond my intentions. Beggars can’t be choosers. I know. We had tornado warnings all over the north part of the state, and during class, security rushed in and told us all to get in the hall and away from windows. We all just looked at each other, out the window, then hurried up out of the room. When I got home I had to take Georgia out to potty, and we got to break in her new raincoat. She was so not having this rain, and just stared at me like, “WHY THE HELL ARE WE EVEN OUT HERE?!”

It was  absolutely crazy. As a result of all of this rain our cable and internet have been out for almost 48 hours, and OF COURSE it was right before I had my final exam research paper due for English. Luckily, we were able to get the internet back up and running, but our cable is still on the fritz. One minute it’s working just dandy and the next, I get the red screen of death. Thank you Xfinity for your shotty service. Not going to lie though, I called them this morning for the 5th time because none of their suggestions were working. I got some guy based in Texas and he was SO nice and super helpful. I was almost late for class because we were talking about rescue pups. So nice!

On another note, I have been making use of my jars from Just a Little Nuts when I get down to the bottom of the goods. I’ll dump in some quick oats, a little cinnamon, dark chocolate chips, and I think this one had bananas in it . SO FREAKIN’ GOOD! I can’t get over it. Karma (Maple Almond Macadamia Butter) is my absolute fave. This isn’t an ad, and I’m not being paid to sing her praises. In fact, I don’t think she even knows I have a blog. But Denise is seriously one of the most genuine people I have ever met, and her butters are sent from heaven above.

Anyways, I hope y’all are making a smooth transition into December. I am still trying not to just throw my books on the ground and walk out of class. I keep reminding myself that I’ve almost made it. The semester is almost over!

Happy Holidays!

First Post

Hey y’all!

I am currently a freshman in college (decided to go back to school after attempting to make my way in the workplace right after high school), and I am just looking for a way to relax and express my frustrations of this wild ride. Bear with me as I figure out this blog thing. I am far from technologically literate. This life is a crazy one, and I am hoping that maybe someone else can find some relief and a laugh or two in my posts. Life is nothing to take too seriously.

Thanks!

Michele
