Someday I will

Shout out to Taylor for giving me the perfect topic for today with her linkup!

The Daily Tay

Someday I will....

Not drink Coke for breakfast.
Yall. I'm not sure if this will ever happen. I've tried and I've tried, but it's truly what I look forward to do in the mornings. I'm weird. But also, to my defense, coffee gives me a stomachache/makes me bounce off the walls. Two things I do not enjoy.

Have babies. And until I'm married, that ain't happenin'.
All the girls in my family are having babies and everyone's wondering when I'm going to pop one out. Not now, that's for sure. I like to spend my money on fun stuff and I like sleeping in and I like drinking. Guess what? A kid takes most of those out of the picture.

BUT. How freakin cute is my niece!?!?


Workout more often.
But who wants to nasty up their freshly washed hair? And who in the world has the energy to do that every day after work?! I know I need to work out more, but dang... some (most) days after work, I just wanna go lay down for a bit. Blehhh. One day though. One day.

This will never be my car. Mostly because those stickers are douchey, but also because running that distance sounds like my personal version of hell.


Get to work on time.
I'm the worst person ever in the mornings. I lay around browsing Instagram in bed for like 20 minutes and then rush through my makeup so I can run out the door. I'm notoriously 3 minutes late every day and it irks me to death that I'm never early or on the dot. For someone who is always on time to everything, it's crazy how I'm never on time to work.

Travel overseas.
I want to go on a Eurotrip sooooo bad I can't stand it. But... luxurious vacay's cost a fortune and ya girl ain't made of money yet.

Go to Target and not spend any money.
Actually scratch this idea. That will never in a million years happen. 

Make millions with my party invitation business.
A girl can dream, can't she?! I'd love for it to be successful enough that it's my full-time job. But I've got a loooong way to go haha.

Take it down a notch with my Christmas obsession.
The chances of this actually happening are also slim, but several people in my life (i.e., Graham) would appreciate it. I can't help it that I watch Christmas Vacation in July and make my boyfriend take pictures with Santa!


Be able to shower my loved ones with awesome gifts.
I can't wait until I have enough disposable income to shower everyone I love with great gifts. Giving gifts is literally one of my favorite things to see (see why I love Christmas so much), but unfortunately I don't have the means to do that now. I so wish I could go buy my dad an iPad or my mom a treadmill or my boyfriend a go-kart. So until then, I will save and save and give people modest, but badass gifts.

Blog daily.
There aren't enough hours in the day.

Figure it all out.
I'll stop questioning the future or what move I'm supposed to make or how to act in a certain situation. One day, I'll stop caring and let things just happen.

Instafriday

It's been a hot minute since the last time I did one of these puppies. Life has just been fun lately. I'm so happy I could burst some days. The best part of it all is that I don't have any real rhyme or reason to be so happy. No extravagant event has happened that's just sent me over the moon. Life has just been agreeing with me. I have all these endorphins! And endorphins make you happy. And happy people don't kill their husbands. They just don't.

Anywho, I couldn't be more excited over the fact that it's fall. I've been eating too much Halloween candy, fantasizing about pumpkin patches, begging my friends to go to a haunted house, and looking at every badass costume on Pinterest. G and I finally bought our costumes the other night, and wtf. Why are costumes so expensive? And why doesn't Party City have dressing rooms? Trying on a mans costume over my clothes was not particularly enjoyable, but whatever. I can't wait! For the first time, ever I think?, I'm not going to be a skank for Halloween! I'm a real live adult now!

Anywho, I know yall are ready for all the Insta pics, so here we go:

Caramel apple bar at work. Like I needed more sweets. 'Twas awesome. And messy.

My boo thang and I at JAB fest. Josh Abbott and Kyle Park were awesome! And wasted. Josh Abbott came out in a miriachi band costume.

Our BFF's/roommates at JAB fest. Yep, my roommate/best friend is dating Graham's roommate/best friend. Makes life convenient.

Action shot of us love birds in our typical fashion. Me being all cute and stuff (as always, duhhhh) and G being a goober. He hates taking pictures and loves to ruin all of them....

I can't be the only person out there that completely ruins their meal by filling up on chips, amirite?

2 balls, one dog.

Watching the UT/OU game with my parents. There's really no greater feeling than watching the Longhorns beat the shit out of the Sooners. Hook em!

Throwback to last Halloween when my friend Alexa made me carve a penis into the pumpkin. Such ladies.

Couldn't end this post without a selfie of me having a great hair day being excited for scarf weather. Selfie shame doesn't count when you're a blogger, right?

Smell ya later, gator.

Random Thoughts For Your Wednesday

1. How did texting lingo even start? Like who was the person who thought it was easier to type "tho" instead of "though" or "b4" instead of "before". Man... those extra .65 seconds really saved my life. And look at how lil ole "lol" has evolved. Back when it was first created, when you said LOL, it meant you just read some funny shit. Nowadays, we use it to make a text less awkward.

"Why did you wear my shirt to the bar and barf all over it? lol"

"lol" is now used to soften the blow.

Anyyyyywho.

2. Sneezing is so weird. Like it's such a weird sensation. How does a sneeze even happen?

3. People from the South flip shit over winter. Including myself. I wore a cashmere sweater and boots today because it was 55 degrees out. I also might note that the people in my office turned on the heat, so I'm hot as balls right now. Classic.



4. Speaking of the South... it's crazy how people have regional accents. I get a really bad Southern accent around my family, but I keep it normal around everyone else. Speaking of work, a girl I work with has an awesome New Yorker accent and I wish I had it.

5. I've been super festive lately and I don't hate it.

I'm making this bean dip tonight for a party


I bought some pumpkin stuff the other day. I made some Halloween munchies (popcorn, white chocolate, candy corn, and pretzels). I bought cute little mini pumpkins for my entry way.

Aaaaaand I'm forcing Graham to carve pumpkins with me this week whether he likes it or not. I know he won't like it, but I also don't really care, because I'm so excited. Love ya G :)


6. Why isn't it the weekend yet? I got birthdays to celebrate, boys to snuggle, concerts to go to, and more. Hurrrrry Friday!!

7. I really reeaaaaallly really wanna go see Captain Phillips.

8. I'm out of random thoughts.


Yeah. This post was just one longgggg stream of weird thoughts. I'm ok with it.

Peace out girl scout.

ACL Fest

You know what I am? A terrible blogger.

This happened a whole week ago, but I'm gonna pretend like it happened this weekend because ACL is still happening this weekend and yall will never know which weekend I went.

Except I just told you... Ooops.

Whatever.

ACL is freakin awesome. It's a 3 day concert here in Austin that has all the best bands. Well actually it has a lot of indie bands, but they throw in a few artists I've heard of, so that's what makes it cool.

My job is awesome and let everyone work 4 9/10 hour days for a half/full day on Friday in honor of ACL. Isn't living in Austin awesome? Anywho, I worked 4 9 hour days (because staying at work until 7pm is not something I'm interested in) and took a half day on Friday. Graham was in California for work, so literally the second he got home at 12, we darted off to the festival.

I wish I took pictures of our trek there. I live about a mile from ACL Fest grounds, so we decided to walk since there was no parking. Not the best idea. We walked alongside a highway and looked like hippie hitchhikers. Plus it was hot as balls outside and I had the genius idea of wearing flipflops.

I make good decisions.

Anywho, we got there just in time to see the tail end of Jimmy Eat World. I quickly realized I only know 2 songs. Cool. Graham made fun of me.


After JEW, we headed to go see Pinback. But Pinback was a little too chill for us, so we attempted to meet up with our drunk ass friends. Fail.

So we headed to Vampire Weekend. Graham and I were both SO pumped for this show, so we got there almost an hour early. Graham left me to go get us some beers, water, and snacks, so I sat with legs spread eagle so I could take up as much room as possible so we'd have space. Not weird or anything.

Vampire Weekend was awesome. So awesome.

After Vampire Weekend, we jumped around, got some dinner, met up with more friends and headed to see the Friday headliner, Muse. I knew approximately 0 Muse songs but we had fun hanging out with friends. After the show, we had the bright idea to catch a cab home without realizing there was an actual cab line. So we walked about 2 miles to downtown to find one. Needless to say my feet were killing me after Friday haha.

Saturday morning, we woke up, fueled up with some delicious Chipotle, and headed out. This day, 3 of our friends came with it was super fun. One friend dressed as a banana, but sadly, he got too drunk and we lost him and I have no photo evidence.

We got there just in time to see the tail end of HAIM. We missed "The Wire" though which sucks, but this hilarious Jesus made up for it.

"And on the second day, Jesus turned water (boxed) into wine." For whatever reason (actually nevermind... I know exactly why they did it. We live in Austin. The most eco-friendly city in the world) instead of water bottles, they had water in these weird milk carton boxes.

Next was Silversun Pickups.

Graham insisted I be on his shoulders. So here's a birdseye view.

And then an Instragrammed view because we're super cute.

After Silversun Pickups, we headed to see Passion Pit. Only Passion Pit was crowded as balls so we left to get awesome seats at Kendrick Lamar, my second favorite person at the festival. Soooo awesome. The crowd was wild. The guy in front of us kept telling me like every 5 minutes that he was gonna crowd surf as soon as the crowd got "live" enough. Needless to say, he never did, and for that I am thankful because these scrawny arms cannot lift a grown ass man.


After that it got cold as shit outside so we left so Graham could go play hockey. And I went to bed early because I am a grandma.

Graham spent the majority of Sunday hungover because he stayed up all night with the boys. Should've been like me and went to bed like a grandma responsible adult. We really only wanted to see Grouplove and Eric Church. Butttttt we missed Grouplove. We did, however, get there early enough to get third row seats for Eric Church!

Graham hates pictures and was trying not to smile.

I like smiling.


Ole Eric Church tearin' it up.

All in all, ACL weekend was a freaking blast. So tiring, but so awesome. Saw some awesome shows and spent time with awesome people. I absolutely cannot wait for next year.

Going back to work Monday was hard!

Lovin you is fun


I’ve been inspired by Bonnie today. She wrote this great post about being married and it got me thinking about a certain fella in my life. She describes loving someone unconditionally, through the good and the bad.


Now, I think I’ve made it pretty clear on this ole blog that G and I aren’t married, but he plays such a special part in my life that when I read sweet posts like that, it makes me think of him. This weekend when we were at ACL Festival, I looked over at him watching one of his favorite bands and had a moment of sheer happiness come over me. I was so happy to be standing next to him in that moment. It's little things like that that make me step back and think about the good stuff.


Love does that to you. It makes you look at the person you’re in love with and feel sheer happiness. Not all the time. Not every day. Shoot, maybe not even every week. Maybe sometimes, they drive you absolutely batty. And vice versa. But sometimes, it takes one little thing to make you feel all giddy inside. It's the little things and the little reasons that make you love someone.


Maybe it’s the anxious/excited feeling you get waiting for them to come home from work. Or maybe it’s the fact that they made you watch all 6 of the Fast and Furious movies and you secretly liked it. It’s the way they smell. The crazy annoying way they are about making up the bed. The smile you get when they see you and the dog cuddling. The way they hold your hand in the car. The way they grudgingly holds your hand in public, but they do it because they know you like it. It’s when they whisper “I Love You” when they think you’re sleeping and can’t hear you. The excitement you feel when they’re excited. The disappointment you feel when they’re disappointed. It’s the mutual feeling you both have over a mess. Maybe it’s the way they hold you and tell you it’s going to be ok when you cry. The way they tell you you’re prettier without makeup. It’s the secret butt grab in public. The fact that you like doing their laundry because you know it makes their life a smidge easier. The appreciation you get for being best friends with their mom. The fact that your parents love them. It’s hearing a song that reminds you of them. When their happiness matters more than yours. It’s having a show that you’d never cheat-watch without him. When they take you to dinner and make you feel like a princess. When they kiss your forehead. When they tell you you’re smart and can do anything. When you want to do everything with them.


It’s reasons like like these that make me happy to be in love. They’re the little moments that make being in love fun. These are the moments that cause me to take a step back and recognize the happiness in that moment.


G, you're the best thing that's ever happened to me. And no matter how many more happy things happen between now and forever, the you thing will still be the best thing.
