never leave the house without your confidence.

I woke up on Friday morning and just laughed at myself.  Actually, I've been laughing at myself since then.  I can't believe I did that!  Honestly, kids, I really can't.  Here I was, getting ready to leave the bar with my girlies and I pulled another ridiculous, living in the moment move with a boy who I thought … Continue reading never leave the house without your confidence.

getting over a guy in 10 days: day 7

 Thursday, November 24, 2011: The 7th day of getting over “Cleveland”. I'm disappointed that I have to write this post, but I made a promise (mostly to myself) that I would track these 10 days during my pact to get over the guy I refer to as "Cleveland".  After doing so well for the first … Continue reading getting over a guy in 10 days: day 7

you and tequila make me crazy- or at least very honest.

I've mentioned my "No Tequila Pact" before, sharing that I regularly make my friends' swear that no shots of tequila will be joining us on our nights out.  (Margaritas are okay.)  Trust me, for everyone's benefit- especially mine- it better if I stay away from it.  Per usual, that was the plan for last night, but there's … Continue reading you and tequila make me crazy- or at least very honest.

these last two weeks.

They say When it rains, it pours.  Now I'm not sure who 'they' are, but I'm quite certain that 'they' came up with this line to foreshadow these last two weeks in my life.  To put it best, and figuratively, it just hasn't stopped raining.  For the last fourteen days, life has thrown everything imaginable … Continue reading these last two weeks.

life is not black or white. there are always shades of gray. and those lines between right and wrong can be blurry.

(I'm back for this post, but still need to stay away just a little longer.) The good news is that I'm feeling much better.  The aftershock of the panic attack wore off sometime on Saturday afternoon and I made the decision to partake in some girls' night out adventures.  Though hesitant because of my crappy week, I had … Continue reading life is not black or white. there are always shades of gray. and those lines between right and wrong can be blurry.

champagne mornings and vodka nights.

My legs are sore; my throat is scratchy; and the dark circles underneath my eyes keep getting darker and darker.  Just the price you pay for spending a weekend with your friends, including those named Champagne & Vodka.  Might I add that it was a four-day weekend too.  Oh, and lucky me woke up this … Continue reading champagne mornings and vodka nights.

weekend shenanigans with addie, mitch, lana, jordan & kendall

One of my favorite things about living in Chicago is that friends are always anxious to stop by and play for a weekend.  This weekend I hosted four of my OU besties: Ashley, Mike, Libby, and Jay (pictured left to right).  Note: They may be referred to as Addie, Mitch, Lana & Jordan- which became their … Continue reading weekend shenanigans with addie, mitch, lana, jordan & kendall
